Colonics by the Bay on coastal Portland, Maine -     Specializing in Colon HydroTherapy: Colonics
So, what exactly is Colon Hydrotherapy!?
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, gentle, and effective method of removing old and toxic waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs or chemicals. Warm filtered water is gently infused into the colon with the use of disposable tubes. Through hydration, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in a release through natural peristalsis.
I use the Dotolo Toxygen hydro device.This state-of-the-art
equipment is FDA approved and has a multistage water-filtration process that uses ultraviolet sterilization. This "closed system" uses disposable tubing consisting of two tubes that are attached to the speculum: a small tube that delivers the filtered, warm water, and a larger tube that carries the waste (toxins!) out to the plumbing system without odor or mess.Truly, it cannot get any better than this: lying on a soft and comfortable treatment table, you are covered with a plush fleece blanket, hydrating and bathing your colon with warm filtered water while releasing disease-producing toxins~ all this and you have nothing to do but relax!
What are the benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy?
Eliminating Toxins
The most immediate and crucial benefit of colon hydrotherapy is the cleansing of our major elimination pathway (our body's drain) of old and toxic material that is glued to the colon's wall. This material is toxic and also harbors pathogenic bacteria, yeasts, viruses, and parasites, all of which produce toxins that are absorbed into our bloodstream creating havoc to our physiological and neurological health. After the initial cleansing of the colon, the additional benefits to other bodily systems will occur: clean the gut, clear the head... and the liver, lungs, blood, lymphs, skin...These systems are all downstream from the gut! Bear in mind: when the colon (our drain) is clogged and stagnant all other systems will be likewise!
Supporting and enhancing a detoxification program
Prior to embarking on any detoxification program such as a nutritional cleanse, a liver detox, lymphatic drainage, an anti-yeast or parasite cleanse, a heavy metals detox, homeopathic drainage, and even a weight-loss program (toxins are stored in fat cells) our body's 5 foot elimination pathway needs to be cleared and flowing optimally. The colon is our body's drain and if it is clogged during active cleanses or detoxification programs all the toxins that are being pulled out of the organs and cells will simply become trapped in the colon and will be reabsorbed right back into the bloodstream. This situation can make an individual quite ill! Therefore, it is highly recommended to have Colonics before, during and after a detoxification or cleansing protocol.
My main emphasis regarding colon hydrotherapy is on Hydration. It's all about hydrating our 5 food muscle, the colon, on a very deep and cellular level. In my opinion, a person can drink 5 gallons of water a day and still not achieve the same level of hydration that can be attained through colonics. I use a very slow technique upon introducing the water which allows the colon to "hold" the water and allow for the water to"soak". This gives an opportunity to hydrate the tissues.                                      Once the colon reaches an optimal hydrated level it just... "releases" ... all the old, toxic material that needs to go...  the colon just "lets go"...

How many sessions will I need?
Constipation = Stagnation of the liver, gall bladder (bile flow), and our 5 foot elimination pathway!
