Why cleanse with a colon hydrotherapy/colonic irrigation programme?
The key to achieving and maintaining vibrant health and well-being results from the proper elimination of toxins from our body – anything we put into our body must either be assimilated or eliminated, so it stands to reason that our bodies need to be taken care of both externally and internally. When we detox, we allow our body to begin the natural healing process, allowing our system to naturally rid itself of the waste toxicity that has built up over the years in our cells, bloodstream and body organs. Hence everybody, irrespective of age and health condition, should regularly detoxify and cleanse the body to restore and maintain optimum levels of energy and vitality.
The duration of our detox programme can vary from a few days to a few weeks. Since most people can ill afford to take time out of their busy lives and schedules to complete a detox cleanse, at Aqualibria we believe in a holistic approach to health and encourage our clients to undertake a cleansing programme appropriately suited to their lifestyle. This will allow the body to cleanse naturally whilst coping with the demands of hectic everyday pressures.
Whatever type of cleansing programme you embark on, Colon hydrotherapy(traditionally known as colonic irrigation) is a natural and highly effective way to start or assist a detox and internal cleanse. Colon hydrotherapy aids the elimination of toxins from the body by flushing out the toxins from the bowels, thereby ridding the body of accumulated toxins at a much faster rate than our elimination organs (the skin, colon, lungs, kidneys and liver) would normally achieve.
Whilst the colon plays a vital part in the everyday function of eliminating waste matter from our body, it also plays an essential role in protecting the body from infection and disease. Additionally, the colon is responsible for the synthesis of certain vitamins (namely K and some of the Bs plus others) and the absorption of water soluble nutrients into the body. Since our body directly absorbs these vitamins and nutrients through the colon wall, a properly clean colon wall is evidently vital to ensure the best physiological exchange of nutrients, electrolytes and water.
The main benefit of eliminating this toxic waste via colon hydrotherapy is that the number one source of disease in the body is effectively eradicated, with the result that the bowel works more efficiently in the elimination of waste and our nutritional absorption is vastly improved – as a consequence you feel more vibrant, energetic and rejuvenated!
Cleansing the colon via colon hydrotherapy also helps to rebalance the alkaline-acid ratio in the body. By keeping the internal environment clean, the friendly bacteria thrive whilst simultaneously inhibiting the disease-causing bacteria.
Once the cleanse is complete and a healthy, sustainable eating and exercising regime is in place, a colon hydrotherapy maintenance programme can help to prevent the re-build up of toxins in the body as well as sustain the high levels of energy and vitality experienced after a cleanse.
Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure all but a valuable tool which works best when combined with sensible eating and exercising habits. Reducing or eliminating alcohol, caffeine and drug consumption is of paramount importance for long term, well-balanced, good health.
Bespoke Treatments Programmes
Depending on whether you need to rebalance, rejuvenate or reenergise, we will recommend the best course of treatments for you during the consultation on your first visit, alongside your health practitioner and personal trainer where appropriate. The duration and frequency of your colon hydrotherapy (colonic irrigation)treatment sessions will also be affected by the individual response to the treatment and will be reviewed during the course.
The following programmes give an indication of a typical course of treatments depending on the overall objective:
- Mini Detox: 3 colonic irrigation treatment sessions within 3 or 4 days.
- Intensive Detox: a course of 6 colonic irrigation treatments over a period of one week: we only recommend this programme for clients who decide to take time off work and dedicate a week of their life to detoxify their body, mind and spirit. We design a highly individualised programme which we monitor daily.
- Detox and Cleanse while working: a course of 6 to 12 colonic irrigation treatments: 2 the first week, 2 the second week, then once a week for the next 2 to 8 weeks.
The body and the mind require energy to perform daily tasks, in addition to coping with everyday work pressures and lifestyle demands. At Aqualibria, we take this into consideration and will recommend a sensible choice of detox program appropriately suited to your lifestyle. Since we are based in the thriving metropolis of London, we appreciate that most people cannot afford to take time off work to properly detox and cleanse away from their daily obligations. We therefore recommend a gentle detox over a period of a 4 to 10 weeks as opposed to a more intensive, rapid one.
Undertaking a drastic, detoxifying cleanse whilst continuing to work will actually put too much stress on the body. Conversely however, a gentler colon hydrotherapy detox over a gradual period of time will allow the body to cope with the demands of day to day life as well as detoxifying efficiently and effectively.
- General Maintenance Cleansing: Advocated after following a detox programme to keep the body and mind in peak conditions: two treatments every 4 to 6 weeks, back to back, i.e. the two colonic irrigation treatments on two consecutive days
