ANTIAGING TREATMENTS: WELLNESS
Colon hydrotherapy [also known as colonics or high
colonic] is a bowel enema of warm water, supplemented
with special detoxification agents. Colonics have been
highly controversial over the past decade; although
the practice of colonics has been used for centuries.
Such treatments, highly regarded by longevity practitioners
have yet to gain the endorsement of any mainstream medical
organization. This is partly due to the lack of studies
completed to support theories.
Theory of Autointoxication
The theory of autointoxication is that stagnation of
the large intestine [colon] causes toxins to form that
are absorbed and poison the body. Some proponents even
suggest that constipation causes hardened faeces to
accumulate for months, or even years, on the walls of
the large intestine and block it from absorbing or eliminating
properly. This toxic undigested food and blood wastes
are then reabsorbed by the body.
Dr. John Tilden stated in his 1930’s book -Toxemia
Explained: The True Interpretation Of The Cause Of Disease
"Auto-toxemia is the real
culprit in almost all diseases and degenerative conditions”
He supported that toxins were the only cause of disease.
An excerpt from a more recent book - Tissue Cleansing
Through Bowel Management by Dr. Bernard Jensen:
"The heavy mucus coating in
the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefaction.
The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up
the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through
the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are
now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning
of true autointoxication on a physiological level. One
autopsy revealed a colon to be 9 inches in diameter
with a passage through it no larger than a pencil. The
rest was caked up layer upon layer of encrusted fecal
material. This accumulation can have the consistency
of truck tire rubber. It's that hard and black. Another
autopsy revealed a stagnant colon to weigh in at an
incredible 40 pounds."
The Digestive Process
Most of the digestive process takes place in the small
intestine, from which nutrients are absorbed into the
body. The remaining mixture of food and undigested particles
then enters the large intestine, for elimination and
to absorb minerals and water.
Bowel habits of healthy individuals can vary greatly,
although at least one bowel movement daily, is considered
Many naturopaths consider that up to 90 percent of
all diseases are caused by improperly working bowels
and recommend periodic fasting or cleansing.
Scientists have discovered 90% of the seratonin in
the body is produced in the wall of the colon; along
with a supposed second brain. I will leave you to investigate
that claim further, however, it certainly could explain
the ‘shitty thinking’ many people have.
Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment
Whilst procedures vary, then tend to follow a basic
- A tube is inserted into the rectum.
- The colon is filled with cool or warm water, sometimes
supplemented with minerals to encourage breakdown
of hardened faecal matter.
- After a waiting period of up to 3 minutes, the
water and any fecal matter are drained through a second
- This process is repeated several times in one treatment.
- Promotes energy and wellness; particularly for
those suffering from asthma, arthritis, sinus problems,
chronic fatigue and constipation.
- Better absorption of vitamins and minerals from
- Heightened sense of taste!
- Toning of the bowel to help produce a better elimination.
- Improved emotions
Most support of benefits is anecdotal, as little research
has been completed in this area.
Risks & Contraindications
Infection from contaminated equipment
Harmfully altering the chemical balance of the colon;
in particular extracting minerals such as potassium
which are normally absorbed back into the bloodstream.
Treatment should not be undertaken with those with
appendicitis, hepatitis and ulcerative colitis.
Colon Cleansing Kits
An alternative treatment to a colonic is using a Colon
Cleansing Kit. A typical kit consists of eight-day intensive
intestinal cleansing program, using two herbal formulas:
Digestive Stimulator - works gently
to support normal bowel function. Typical ingredients
include: Aloe leaf, Aloe Vera leaf, Cascara Sagrada
bark, Chinese Rhubarb root, Triphala (Amla fruit, Chebulic
Myrobalan fruit, Belleric Myrobalan fruit), Barberry
root, Dandelion root, Fringe Tree root bark, Meadowsweet
aerial parts, Plantain aerial parts, Ginger root, Fennel
seed, Peppermint leaf, Fenugreek seed, and Licorice
Toxin Absorber - consumed several
times per day to assist absorption and draw hardened
mucus build-up and faecal matter out of the intestinal
tract. Typical ingredients include: Psyllium seed husks,
Apple pectin, Ginger root, and Bentonite clay.
The kit is used in conjunction with liquid only fasting
for the first 5 days. This is to avoid the Toxin Absorber
binding to the food instead of the waste you are trying
Alternative programs are modified to avoid fasting,
instead incorporating restrictive diets high in fibre
[20-50mg a day], and can take up to 30 days.

Expect cleansing reactions similar to those normally
associated with detoxification, such as: headaches,
bloated feelings, constipation, abdominal pain and sore
NOTE: Cleansing reactions are part of cleansing and
are not the same as "side effects" normally
associated with medication.

Healthy Colon Diets
Adopting a diet high in soluble fibre helps move food
through the digestive tract faster, which decreases
the ability of carcinogens in the diet to manifest and
lead to colon cancer. It also helps reduce cholesterol
and helps control diabetes by improvinge blood glucose
Fibre is found in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds,
legumes and whole grains. Soluble fibre in apples, grapefruit,
oranges, broccoli and carrots.
