Digestive Health

Digestive Health

Many think of digestive issues causing minor things, such as stomach pains and discomforts, but problems with digestive health have been linked to serious issues throughout a person’s body. Although foods we eat may have small amounts of toxins, synthetic ingredients, and even poisons, our digestive system does a decent job of filtering most of that out. When things aren’t working properly food can rot internally instead of being digested, bad bacteria can increase, and you can have some serious side effects and potential for diseases.

Detox Programs

One way to help your body fight off a build up of toxins is by putting yourself through a detox.  Unfortunately the internet is full of detox “fad” options, which potentially may be further damaging. A detox plan should be based on the individual, their concerns, ailments, and goals, but also with other health situations in mind.

Our goal is to make a detox plan that will meet your health expectations, with minimal risk and side effects.

Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon hydrotherapy is the gentle rinsing of the colon with warm water. No chemicals or drugs are involved and the entire therapy is both relaxing and effective. The process helps to remove toxins, bacteria, and waste in the colon and can be a great for elevating discomfort and a good starting point to getting your digestive health back in line.  Doctors may also allow you to use colon hydrotherapy as an alternative to fasting and cleansing prior to a colonoscopy.

 

“Colon hydrotherapy, is a safe, 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.”

What to expect…

Prior to treatment we will discuss the procedure and answer any questions you may have. There will be a list of pre-treatment steps you will be asked to complete to get optimal results from the procedure.  The day of, we encourage you to drink ample water, as this procedure does lower your body hydration during the process. Both before and after the procedure, we will be changing your diet to reintroduce good bacteria to your colon, which is vital to proper digestion.

This minimally invasive procedure takes about an hour and is done by Olga Klein, an I-ACT certified colon hydrotherapy specialist, with years of experience. The procedure is done in the relaxed surroundings of our Manchester, CT location.

 

Risks?

Any procedures have potential risk. Colon hydrotherapy is considered very low risk and minimally invasive, estimated internationally that roughly 1 out of every 250,000 procedures may result in a reported problem, typically minor. The likelihood of an issue is further reduced when using a certified and experienced therapist and sanitary FDA registered equipment, which is our standard practice.

The procedure is of increased risk for anyone with a history of gastrointestinal disease, including diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, or a history of colon surgery, severe hemorrhoids, kidney disease or heart disease. For anyone suffering from these ailments, the procedure will not be done without a recommendation from your doctor.
