colon hydrotherapy

What Is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as colonics or colon irrigation, is a safe and effective method of removing toxins from the large intestines without the use of drugs. Colon hydrotherapy has been practiced for centuries with the earliest records of basic enemas dating back to 1500 B.C in ancient Egypt. Here at Vitalita we use the LIBBE system. The LIBBE is a TGA registered, open system device that uses a double filtration system. It is a controlled method of cleansing the colon using a gentle, gravity fed flow of water. The water is infused gently into the colon by a sterilized, disposable rectal nozzle that is about the size of a pencil. As a result, the compacted waste that has accumulated in the colon over weeks, months or years of toxic exposure is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis.

Why do I need a Colonic?

Unfortunately, the average person does not have a healthy colon. We are constantly bombarded by toxins in our everyday lives. They are in our food, air, water, skincare, household products, medications, etc. Some of these toxins are unavoidable but one of the main reasons we are so burdened by poor health is our nutrition. The typical Australian diet consisting of high fat, low- fibre, refined sugar, processed food high in preservatives and toxic chemical additives. As these foods move through the colon, fluids are absorbed during the digestive process and the remaining waste hardens and clings to the colon walls where it putrefies. A healthy colon will be moving this waste out through natural peristalsis 3-4 times a day but sadly, the average persons is having less than 2 bowel movements per day. When this occurs and the colon is not functioning as nature intended then these toxins can then be absorbed into your blood stream and can lead to autointoxication or self-poisoning and negatively affect your physical, mental and emotional health, leading to very serious weight and health problems.

Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy

There are a huge range of health benefits that our clients report from regular colonics. Here are some examples!

Improves Digestion

  • Colon Hydrotherapy can help to ease a large range of digestive complains including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), constipation, diarrhoea, gas and bloating. Colonics can help improve these conditions by increasing hydration and nutrient absorption and removing the bad bacteria that flourishes as a result of impacted waste in the colon.

  • Increases Energy

  • Cleansing the colon prevents toxins from being reabsorbed into the blood stream. This alleviates the feeling of fatigue or sluggishness.

  • Improves Muscle Tone of the Colon

  • When the colon is heavily impacted with waste the natural peristalsis is limited. Over a long period of time this causes our colon to become ‘lazy’. Colon Hydrotherapy retrains the colon to function optimally, promoting strength and tone.

  • Restores Hydration

  • The primary functions of the colon are to eliminate waste and absorb water. During your colonic treatment water is gently infused into the colon where it can be absorbed and utilized efficiently.

  • Improves Immunity

  • Around 80% of our immune system resides within the gut. When the colon is cleansed we are creating a better environment for our good bacteria to flourish and build a strong immune system.

  • Assists in Weight Loss

  • Lots of people find that once they get their digestion, absorption and elimination functions in order then weight loss becomes easy. Many of us have 5kg or more of waste impacted in our colons, Colon Hydrotherapy can help to clear that waste plus any bloating that may contribute to concerns.

  • Improves complexion and acne

  • When the colon isn’t functioning properly, toxins need to leave the body through alternate means, the skin. Once the colon is cleansed the skin (and other elimination organs) is no longer burdened with excess toxins, reducing the likelihood of breakouts and rashes. Cleansing the colon also allows our good bacteria to flourish which can help to ease symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.

  • Decrease Stress and Anxiety

  • There is a very profound connection between the gut and the brain, in fact the gut of often referred to as the second brain! Restoring balance to the bacteria in our gut through colonics can help to boost your mood and create a sense of emotional wellbeing.

  • Improve Cognitive Function

  • Colon Hydrotherapy can help to improve general brain function. If our colon is not functioning properly, often our brain isn’t either which can result in feelings of brain fog and poor concentration. Colon Hydrotherapy can also help to improve absorption of nutrients that are crucial to brain function.

What to expect?

Having a colonic should not be a scary experience. At Vitalita Detox and Wellness we aim to create a safe, relaxing and comfortable environment for our clients.

far infrared sauna

Far Infrared saunas are a great way to promote detoxification. At Vitalita Detox and Wellness we use an Australian made, 3 seater far infrared sauna from iHealth so there is plenty of room to lie down and relax or share a sauna with a friend!

Our Far Infrared Saunas combine the highest quality carbon far infrared panels and solid ceramic heaters, to selectively emit the healthiest wavelengths from the sun’s energy spectrum.

Regular treatment using far infrared energy can benefit our health and well being in dozens of ways. Here are a few examples of the benefits you may experience from using the Far Infrared Sauna at Vitalita Detox and Wellness.

  • Relieves Pain

    Infrared heat is well known for pain relief. Health professionals have used infrared heat lamps for decades to treat muscle and joint problems. Deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to soft tissue injuries. In Europe, far infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from any form of arthritis. In addition, it has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.

  • For the athlete: The perfect warm up prior to exercise, because muscles relax more readily when tissues are warm and allow greater flexibility and range of motion. Afterwards it helps recovery and faster healing of strains and muscle pain. Infrared saunas are installed at top sporting events such as the Olympic games for this purpose

  • Removes toxins naturally

    Our body reacts to increased heat by perspiring. Through the human perspiration process, toxins like sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and potentially carcinogenic heavy metals are removed from the cells.

  • Assists in weight loss and cellulite reduction

    Our body uses energy to produce sweat - 1gm of sweat requires the burn of 0.586 kcal. A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat up to 1000gms or more in a 30-minute session.

  • European specialists incorporate daily use in programs to reduce cellulite. Because radiant heat from an iHealth Far Infrared Sauna warms 3 times as deeply as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.

  • Promotes beautiful, youthful skin

    Excellent for increasing blood circulation to the skin - essential for beautiful, youthful, glowing skin! Far infrared therapy can also help to create a new “inner glow” as the skin is freed of accumulated dirt and dry skin cells due to the deep cleansing of impurities. Far infrared sauna treatment helps with the relief for acne, eczema, psoriasis, and helps to firms and improves skin tone and elasticity.

  • Strengthens cardiovascular system and improves circulation

    As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to boost circulation, supplying the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, for improved overall cardiovascular fitness.

  • Boosts immune system

    Deep heat produced from a far infrared sauna raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. As it works to combat the “fever”, your body’s immune system is strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes from intense sweating, overall health and resistance to disease is increased.

Getting the most from your Far Infrared Sauna experience.

Hydrate. Drinking water is critical to a comfortable and effective sauna session. At Vitalita we will provide you with filtered drinking water and electrolytes during your session with us however we recommend that you also drink 0.5L before your session and 0.5L after.

Wear as little clothing as possible. We will provide you with towels to lie on or wrap around yourself during your sauna, so you need not get any of your clothes sweaty and dirty during your session. We also welcome you to use our shower facility to wash off the sweat and toxins after your session.
