The first question that probably runs through almost everyone’s mind when they hear the word “Colonic” is, ‘does it hurt?’ In all honesty I would have to say that a Colonic can be very relaxing. It is actually a very gentle and soothing process. There is no scary equipment, only warm flowing water and a comforting hand to rub your belly. It’s starting to sound pretty good right? Now we can begin talking about the deep benefits.
I would have to say that in one way or another, everybody has some issue with their back-side. And while we walk around trying to cover our behind, we wish we could find a safe haven to just let things out.
Looking back on the years of practice, I’ve seen that we all get stuck in some way at some time or another. A Colonic gives the opportunity to relieve some of the pressures we hold up inside and let things move again. Water is a tremendous solvent, just look at the Grand Canyon. This is a powerful way to refresh our bodies.
I think the general populace is beginning to discover that the nature of our contemporary American ways and nutrition are a bit on the deficient side when it comes to our true bodily needs. Sadly, it takes us humans awhile to realize the effects of our choices and usually we find ourselves dead-ended with some sort of pain or crisis situation. It need not be so dramatic when it comes to taking care of our selves. The body is pretty straight forward and gives signs… “I’m tired” “I’m thirsty” “I’m hungry” “I have to go to the bathroom”. Some days we’re good listeners and other days we just don’t have the time or desire to meet all those demands! Not to worry, the body is very forgiving and enjoys nothing better than a nice clearing to empty out all the excess.
Everyone has their own symptoms connected to “getting stuck.” The body responds with constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, fatigue, gas, headaches, skin problem and depression. Well who could feel good if they didn’t take the garbage out everyday? A Colonic brings you into a deeper awareness of your body and what is going on inside.
Once the feelings of congestion have been experienced, the feeling of release and movement is well received and becomes the goal to maintain. Like a garden, the colon is a place where life thrives. There is constant action to keep the environment rich in nutrients and free from an overgrowth of bad bacteria.
The key ingredients for this transformation are healthy flora, a toned colon and water. Magically, our waste then converts into a perfect package to move on its way and return to whence it came. However, if something along the route is lacking, then the pass isn’t complete and we’re stuck with the ball and no yardage gained. Eventually we get tired of playing the game and we sit down on the bench.
After our insides are refreshed we have an opportunity to rebuild a strong offense to better elimination. Exercise, whole foods, acidophilus (good bacteria), water and a healthy outlook on life will lay the foundation for good days ahead. This list seems daunting at times of stress and we look for a short cut. Caffeine, laxatives and sugar all jiggle things around, unfortunately they have limits and shortcomings. Caffeine kills good bacteria, laxatives weaken the colon and sugar feeds bad bacteria like fish. Of course there are degrees to indulging and herein lies the key to navigating through our lives with well being and not constant storming. Once we have the remembrance of internal tides we can make our decisions with confidence. It takes practice in listening to our bodies and deciphering the signals. For example we hear our heads talkingâ€¦, “I’m felling gassy and bloated and I’ve been under a lot of stress. All I want is ice cream and a nap. What could this mean?” Perhaps you need to rest, eat more vegetables, take a walk in the woods, get a Colonic and start taking acidophilus! Every little thing counts and we don’t always have to be 100%. The trick seems to lie in recognizing when we dip below the appropriate range for our selves, and then to choose something to bring us back up to speed. Colonics are just another tool in the bag for support.
Colonics are not a “New Age” procedure, they have been in existence as far back as the ancient Egyptians. Even Lewis and Clarke were schooled in the use of enemas to combat ailments along their expedition. And before the advent of antibiotics, Colonics were used in hospitals. Water is the source of all life and is our ally in times of stress and struggle. Colonics help us come back into balance with our most vital self.
