Colonics & Colon Cleansing
What is a Colon Cleansing?
It is a natural essential function of the body and healthy life. As is the intake and metabolizing food to build and maintain essential tissue health. Homeostasis/Health happens when there is balance of the intake, utilization of oxygen, hydration and nutrients and the proper elimination of waste. You’ve heard about “you are what you eat”, Well consider this, you also are what you don’t eliminate…
Toxicity occurs in our bodies when we take in more than we can utilize and eliminate. Whether it be food, emotions, or mental waste. Colon cleansing is a way of eliminating waste and stressors from all levels of our being, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Common Symptoms of Toxicity Overload in the Body:
- frequent colds
- halitosis (bad breath)
- skin conditions (eczema, psoriasis, etc)
- joint stiffness/aches and pains
- sinus congestion
- menstrual problems
- all the itises; arthritis, colitis, bronchitis etc.
A colonic; aka colonic irrigation or or colon hydrotherapy session, is a holistic detoxification process, that may help relieve waste and stress on all levels of being. It is an ancient practice and process that can also help reshape and hydrate the tissues, exercise the colon muscles, relieve sick wind/gas, bring self awareness and educate clients about the body’s self-healing process.
Colonics safely, gently and hygienically cleanses the colon/large intestine with warm purified water. The client self-inserts a sterile disposable speculum, into the rectum about 1 and 1/2 inches. The therapist is there to assist the client’s “relaxing and gentle shower on the inside”. The client is draped, mostly laying comfortably on their back on a massage table. There is no smell or mess.
In a very yogic practice, the client is coached to focus on opening and relaxing the the body with breath. The therapist will let a little water in, tell client to breathe, relax, open and receive hydration, then the therapist will release water and waste out. This is repeated again and again, in progressive intervals for about 40-55 minutes.
Periodic cleansing opens the channels of elimination and helps purify the liver, kidneys, and blood; Seasonal cleansing may enhance mental clarity, inner peace and increases energy; relieves the body of dependency on habit-forming substances; and reduces your stomach to its normal size contributing to weight loss. Did you know 90% of most illnesses are related to toxic waste build up in mind and body. The average person carries about 5-10 pounds of waste in their colon. A series of colonics and shifting to a more health conscious lifestyle, can help fight chronic congestion, illness and even help eliminate terminal disease.
Elimination is Illumination!!!
Ninaya holds teacher credentials through I-ACT (International Association of Colon hydrotherapy), and has 20 years experience as a certified colon hydrotherapist (Internal Environment Institute, CA). Her style of colonics, is a holistic approach combining yoga awareness with much healing touch; reiki, pressure point work, lymphatic drainage massage and the use of DoTerra essential oils to help the elimination process.
Colonics is good for most anybody anytime, prepared or not, is an efficient way to reset the body’s vital flow and create a renewed sense of awareness. It’s a natural, safe, gentle, soothing, self-healing and self-empowering modality, useful during a cleanse, or when feeling sluggish and congested.
