Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe and effective method of removing waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs.

By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. Because it’s extremely toxic, eliminating this waste is vitally important to overall health. Colonic hydrotherapy has been found to be the most effective process available to accomplish this work quickly and easily.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COLON HYDROTHERAPY?

CLEANS THE COLON

Unwanted material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Even debris built up over a long period is gently, but surely removed in the process of a series of treatments. Once impacted material is removed, your colon can begin again to co-operate as it was intended to. In this very real sense a colonic is a rejuvenation treatment.

EXERCISES THE COLON MUSCLES

The buildup of debris weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristaltic (muscular contraction) activity by which the colon naturally moves material.

RESHAPES THE COLON

When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape which in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water helps to eliminate bulging pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.

STIMULATES REFLEX POINTS

Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points, a colonic will stimulate these points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way.

FAQ About Colon Hydrotherapy

What is the purpose of having a colonic?
Well, waste material, especially that which has remained in the colon for some time, (i.e. impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, parasites, worms, etc.) poses several problems. First this material is quite toxic (poisonous). These poisons can re-enter and circulate in the blood stream making us feel ill, tired or weak. Second, impacted materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-produced vitamins. And finally, a build-up of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movement, constipation, and the result of these disorders.
How many colon hydrotherapy sessions do I need?
The protocol for patients at the Sponaugle Wellness Institute is 2-3 times a week. For family and friends of the Sponaugle Wellness Spa, we will tailor your sessions to meet your specific needs. You will meet with a colon hydrotherapist to review your medical history, discuss your lifestyle choices, and they will work with you to achieve your health goals. At the end of the session you and your colon hydrotherapist will have a better understanding on how many sessions you should have.
Is Intestinal Toxicity a common condition?

As the colon isn’t the only organ of elimination, what makes the colonic so important?
While the lungs, skin, kidneys and liver also serve to eliminate toxins, people have experienced throughout history that when they ensure that the colon is cleansed and healed, the well-being of the whole body is greatly enhanced. Colonic hydrotherapy has been found to be the most effective process available to accomplish this work quickly and easily.
Why not use enemas, suppositories, or laxatives instead?
Everything has its proper place, but those aren’t substitutes for colonics. Enemas are useful for emptying the rectum (the lowest 8 to 12 inches of the colon). Usually, one or two pints of water are used to do that. Suppositories are intended to accomplish the same task. Laxatives particularly herbal laxatives are formulated for various purposes, such as: to undo the effects of temporary constipation, to build up the tone of the colon muscle, etc. But the Rolls Royce of colon cleansing without questions is colon hydrotherapy.
What makes a colonic so special?
In a 45-minute session water is used to gently flush the colon. Through appropriate use of massage, pressure points, etc., the colon therapies are able to work loose and eliminate far more waste than any other short – term technique.
What type of equipment is used?
We use a gravity fed, open system to maintain the dignity of each person during a session. The Angel of Water Colon Hydrotherapy Model utilizes UV lighting, carbon, and sediment filters to remove impurities in the water before entering the colon. In addition to filtration, the water is also temperature regulated to ensure a comfortable and productive session.
What will colonics do to the colon?

Specifically, a colonic is used to accomplish the following:

  • Clean the colon: Unwanted material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Even debris built up over a long period is gently, but surely removed in the process of a series of treatments. Once impacted material is removed, your colon can begin again to co-operate as it was intended to. In this very real sense a colonic is a rejuvenation treatment.
  • It exercises the colon muscles: The buildup of debris weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristaltic (muscular contraction) activity by which the colon naturally moves material.
  • It reshapes the colon: When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape which in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water helps to eliminate bulging pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
  • It stimulates reflex points: Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points, a colonic will stimulate these points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way.

Is a colonic painful?
It rarely is. Usually, painful experiences are the result of resistance and tension. A professional colon therapist is skilled at putting you at your ease and minimizing discomfort. Most people actually enjoy the colonic and are especially pleased with the unaccustomed sensation of feeling lighter, clean and clear afterward. Sometimes during a colonic, the colon muscles will contract suddenly expelling considerable amounts of liquid and waste into the rectum. This may feel like cramping or gas, and may create a feeling of urgency to empty the rectum. Such episodes, if they do occur, are brief and easily tolerated.
Is it embarrassing to have a colonic?
No, you will fully maintain your personal dignity. You will be in a private room with only your therapist, who fully appreciates the sensitivity of the colonic procedure and will help you feel at ease. Your emotions will be acknowledged and honored. After the gentle self-insertion of a small tube into the rectum, you will call for the therapist to come back into the room and initiate the water flow. The therapist will remain in the room until you feel comfortable with the process. The mess and odor sometimes present during an enema simply does not exist with a colonic due to the exhaust system and ergonomic design of the Angel of Water colonic system.
Is there anything I need to do to get ready for a colonic?
Since your abdomen will be massaged it is a good idea to eat or drink lightly in the 2 hours immediately preceding a colonic. Also, helpful, but not essential, emptying the rectum with a bowel movement just prior to the colonic saves time and permits more to be accomplished.
What can I expect afterwards?
Most likely, you’ll feel great. Probably you’ll feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well-being. As soon as the colonic is finished you can carry on with your daily routine. For some, the colonic may trigger several subsequent bowel movements for the next few hours. It’s also possible you may feel light-headed or chilled for a few moments following a colonic. It’s unlikely, but possible there will be uncontrollable urgency or discomfort. If history of constipation exists, you may not have a bowel movement the night or morning after a colonic.
Is colonics dangerous in any way?
Being an essentially natural process, there is virtually no danger with a colonic. Our intent is to provide a safe and healthy service so that you do not have to worry. Cleaning and sterilization of the necessary equipment is done as normal procedure and clean linen is used for each colonic as well.
Will a colonic make me constipated or give me diarrhea?
The most frequent post – colonic experience is to have a slight delay in bowel movements and then a resumption of a somewhat larger, easier to move stool. Sometimes if the colon is weak and sluggish, there may be no bowel movement for several days following a colonic. However, this is not due to the colonic, but rather to the weakness of the colon, and should be interpreted as an indication that the colon requires strengthening and healing. Very infrequently diarrhea or loose bowels may be experienced. This could be due to the extra water introduced into the colon or to the stirring up of waste. If this should occur, it is usually a very short duration. However, since severe diarrhea dehydrates the body, it must be carefully monitored.
Some people say that a colonic washes out intestinal flora and valuable nutrients. Is this so?
The truth is that the washing out of putrefied material in the large intestine, increases the good intestinal flora. Good bacteria can only breed in a clean environment which has been washed free of putrefaction and its accompanying harmful bacteria. This is why the intestines of a new born baby immediately begin to grow good intestinal flora. Each time you clean out the putrefying rubbish and make a better environment for the good flora, they start to multiply immediately in their natural media. It also stands to reason that valuable nutrients can better be absorbed in a clean environment than in a putrefied one.
What effect does colonic hydrotherapy have on our immune systems?
The removal of stagnant waste material and hardened, impacted toxic residue could rejuvenate the immune tissue that resides in the intestines. Recent European studies speculate that 70% of immune tissue resides in the intestines. This is much higher than previously thought. Colon Hydrotherapy is not a cure-all, but an important adjunctive therapy in the overall health care of the client.
How long does a colonic take?
Probably 90% of all colonics take about 45 minutes. It could also be shorter or longer than that, based upon the judgment of the therapist and sometimes, the wishes of the client. There will also be about 10 minutes required before the colonic for the therapist to go over your medical history, another 10 minutes should be allowed for changing. On a first colonic you should expect to spend a little over an hour at the clinic.
Will it be okay to eat after having a colonic?
We suggest that you eat at your normal meal time, and consume a moderate amount of whatever seems gentle and nourishing to you. Just as it doesn’t make sense to have your cars cleaned and then immediately drive through mud, eating a meal known to cause trouble in your abdomen directly after a colonic isn’t an intelligent choice. Salads, vegetable soups or broths, fruit, or juices are the best choice.
Will one colonic completely empty the colon?
Almost never, firstly, many of us have a considerable amount of impacted feces in our colon. This is hardened, rubbery, or wallpaper like material. Substantial work must be done to remove it. Secondly, there is a subtle learning process involved in receiving colonics. As you become more aware of what is going on in your abdomen, and as your body learns how to allow this cleansing experience, you are better able to enter into that process, and therefore more material is released. One colonic will remove a large amount of the stagnant waste in the colon. The second and subsequent colonics will remove more.
How will I know when the colon is empty?
It will never be completely empty, as it’s an organ in continuous use. As more of the old impacted material is released you will actually feel the water enter higher regions of the colon without any sense of obstruction. The objective should not be an empty colon, but rather a well-functioning colon.
