LEARN MORE ABOUT COLON CLEANSING
Learn more about Colonic Irrigation and how it can make a difference for you. We are all about transforming your health here at Toronto Colonics and colon cleansing is the first place to start.
Colonic Irrigation is the process of using water to remove accumulated fecal matter, mucus and sludge from the colon. The process is gentle, safe and extremely effective.
Cleansing the colon enables more toxins to flow out of your body. A net outflow of toxins provides many benefits, including better bowel function, an improved appearance and increased energy levels. Patients typically notice changes after one colonic treatment.
How are colonics able to achieve such dramatic results? It’s quite simple… Introducing water into the colon helps to not only remove accumulated fecal matter but it also helps to exercise the colon’s muscle tissue. With enough exposure to gentle water pressure the colon begins to tone and reshape itself. The end result is a cleaner and stronger colon and this sets the stage for vital nutrient absorption and proper elimination. In this state, you feel rejuvenated and healthier.
Colonics are a powerful yet simple and natural way to restore health.
Years of build up and accumulation can put a lot of stress on your colon, liver and the overall digestive system. When the colon is stressed it cannot eliminate impurities from the body. Without adequate elimination in place, toxins simply get re-absorbed into the bloodstream, creating repetitive and unnecessary work for the liver and other organs in the body. Since elimination will inevitably not occur (due to diminished colon function), the cycle continues and you eventually begin to feel very sick. This is known as auto-intoxication. This pattern is very dangerous and it can lead to undesirable health conditions and various kinds of disease, such as allergies, arthritis, migraine headaches, skin disorders, heart disease, gout, metabolic/hormone imbalances, Crohn’s disease, constipation, parasites, and candida, amongst many others conditions.
Colonics put an end to this dangerous cycle.
We take for granted that our digestive system will work flawlessly for our entire life, but that is not always the case, especially when there are plenty of foods in our diet that affect colon function. We also live in a toxic world so even if you do live a relatively health lifestyle, your digestive system will face periodic stress.
Consider what your colon and digestive system has to deal with on a daily basis:
- Environmental Toxins (from air pollution, chemicals in our food and industrial exposure to beauty and household-product toxins)
- Lifestyle Factors (stress, alcohol, cigarettes, infrequent exercise, a sedentary lifestyle, etc)
- Diet (diminished nutrients, processed and refined foods, a lack of fiber and greens, poor diet choices, etc)
Many people are unaware of the fact that they are suffering from a clogged colon. It is only when they begin to feel very sick do they start to understand just how problematic their bowel function really is.
Fortunately, a few simple dietary and lifestyle changes, along with a series of colonics is all that’s required to achieve dramatic changes in your overall health.
What if you don’t feel sick… How do you know if truly need a colonic? There are many signs to look out for… If you are not having two bowel movements a day then you are constipated and will benefit from a colonic. Abdominal fat is another indicator. If you notice a layer of fat accumulating around your torso, you will likely benefit from colonics. For instance, if you have a little pot belly below the navel, even though you follow a healthy diet and exercise program, you likely have accumulated fecal matter within your colon that is forcing it to prolapse (i.e.: drop down and out). This condition is known as a transverse colon since it causes the colon to fall out of line with the navel.
Here are some interesting facts for you:
- The average person’s colon can often hold 8 to 25 lbs of accumulated fecal matter.
- In 1914, 57 of the world’s leading physicians met at a health conference where they concluded that every organ of the body is affected by reabsorbed poisons from the colon which result in many forms of illness.
- Auto-intoxication is when the body poisons itself by maintaining a cesspool of decaying matter in its colon. The toxins released by the decay process get into the bloodstream and travel to every part of the body. Because it weakens the entire system auto-intoxication can be the cause of nearly any disease.

The Colonic System
The process followed during a colonic treatment is very simple, safe and sanitary. The system used to perform a colonic is closed meaning that no material coming out of your colon is ever exposed; it goes straight into the sewage system.
Water flows in one direction as follows:
- Warm water enters a filtration system.
- Next, the purified filtered water is routed down a tube that is connected to a speculum (the inlet tube). The speculum is a disposable device that is inserted into the anus/rectum. As water filters into the speculum it flows up into the colon.
- Another tube is connected to the speculum (the evacuation tube) and it serves as an exhaust, or outflow mechanism. The evacuation tube is connected to the sewage system.
- When water is being filtered into the colon, the evacuation tube is shut off so as to allow for one-way flow. When it is time to release water out of the colon, the evacuation tube is released, which creates a route of elimination for the colon to feed into. As peristalsis kicks in within the colon, the evacuation tube receives all the water and released fecal matter and sends the waste into the sewage system.
A Typical Colonic Session
Sessions usually run 30-45 minutes and as much as 120 -133L of purified, filtered water is used to gently rinse the colon.
The first stage of a colonic irrigation session involves massaging the lower abdominal area. Massage increases peristaltic action (bowel contraction) which helps to dislodge fecal impaction. The massage also helps to assess the current status of the colon (how impacted it is) and where potential pressure points may lie so that they can be triggered when the colon is filled with water.
During the second stage, a sterile, disposable speculum is connected to the hydro colon therapy system and then it is inserted into the rectum. Clients are completely covered during the treatment. Once the speculum is securely inserted, purified water is then introduced into the colon via a small inlet tube. After circulating through colon for a brief period, the water leaves the colon through an evacuation tube. When water is filling up into the colon, patients are encouraged to practice various breathing techniques in order to help as many impurities get flushed out of the system. As water leaves the colon, it carries out impacted fecal matter, gas and mucus. The entire procedure is completely sanitary.
Immediately following the cleansing detox procedure, clients feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well-being.
“Every tissue is fed by the blood, which is supplied by the intestinal system. When the intestines are dirty, the blood is dirty and so are the organs and the tissues. It is the intestinal system that has to be cared for before any effective healing can take place.”
– Dr. Bernard Jenseno.
Conditions such as constipation, colitis, flatulence, bloating and diverticulitis, Irritable bowel syndrome, Candida, hemorrhoids, intestinal parasites and chronic diarrhea respond well to colonic irrigation.
The general cleansing of the colon can also help headaches, halitosis, skin problems (acne, eczema, and psoriasis), asthma,food allergies, fatigue, depression and systematic Candida.
Cleansing the colon via colon hydrotherapy also helps to rebalance the alkaline-acid ratio in the body. By maintaining this ratio within the body’s internal environment, friendly bacteria thrive whilst simultaneously inhibiting the disease-causing bacteria.
One of the surprising benefits of colon cleansing is that some people experience significant weight loss. The average colon weighs approximately 4 lbs but it is not at all unusual for colon cleansing to flush away as much as 10-30 lbs of stagnant fecal matter during a colonic cleansing program.
Before a Treatment
Try to avoid eating a minimum of 2-3 hours prior to a colonic session. If your upper digestive tract is full, you may find it more challenging to release during a colonic session. Liquids are fine, however it is best to eliminate as much fluid out of the bladder prior to a session as well so as to maintain your comfort.
Please allow one hour for each colonic irrigation session. It is also a good idea to arrive 20-30 minutes early so that you can relax, unwind and ease into your session in a calm state.
Your First Session
You will be warmly welcomed into an environment where you can relax and unwind. Our fully qualified, friendly and experienced lifestyle therapists will assist you with everything you need prior, during and after your session. Once ready, you will be escorted into your private treatment room and your therapist will explain the entire colonic insertion procedure to you.
Our colon and hydrotherapy treatment rooms provide a comfortable and soothing atmosphere that will enable you to relax so that you can nurture your mind, body and spirit. Feeling at ease during a session can help to overcome any initial embarrassment that some clients may feel… It’s normal to feel a little shy about the process, however know that you will always be in the hands of capable and supportive therapists who understand everything that you’re feeling and experiencing. We genuinely believe in the emotional component of ‘release,’ which often goes hand-in-hand with ‘letting go’ physically.
A towel will be provided so that you remain covered at all times during your treatment.
Once the treatment begins, the flow of purified water will be regulated into your colon to ensure a comfortable excretion of waste throughout the treatment. Your therapist will gently massage your lower abdomen to aid the release of waste.
Our lifestyle therapists will be there for you in every way possible, informing you, educating you, supporting you and giving you the personal attention that you deserve. Once the colon hydrotherapy treatment is complete, you will get dressed and return to the consultation room where you will be given an energizing drink and a probiotic supplement. At this stage, you and your therapist will also be able to review the outcome of your treatment, relevant findings and what to expect going forward.
After your first appointment, and for the duration of the suggested detox or maintenance program selected, please allow for one hour for each subsequent visit. You may wish to arrive to your appoints 20-30 minutes early so as to get yourself into a relaxed state, similar to your first appointment. And, as always, during your sessions your therapist will be there to guide you along and answer any questions that come up along the way. Also, during each visit we will evaluate the on-going results of your program.
How many treatments will I need?
Every person is different. In addition, lifestyle factors (such as stress, activity or diet) varies for everyone so it is difficult to say how many treatments you will need until you visit one of our therapist. After your first session, it will become apparent how many sessions you could potentially enrol into in order to realized continued benefits. Rest assured though, you will notice dramatic changes after even just one session.
In general, many people benefit tremendously from a course of between 8-10 treatments that are taken over a 4-10 week time frame. Thereafter, their situation is reviewed with their therapist.
