What is the colon? What does it do?

digestion of food, manufactures and absorbs certain vitamins and nutrients and
also absorbs water. The remaining waste is then eliminated through bowel
What is a colonic?
Colon Hydrotherapy or “colonic” is a safe, sanitary, and gentle irrigation of
the colon with purified, temperature controlled water. It is an internal bath
that helps cleanse the colon of accumulated fecal matter, preventing the build
up of bacterial toxins and gas. A colonic is different than an enema. An enema
only cleanses the lower part of the colon usually with tap water that can have
chemicals and possible parasites. A colonic allows for water to enter and circulate through the entire 5 feet of colon. The water goes through several filters before entering the body.

How many colon hydrotherapy sessions
does one need?
The number of colon hydrotherapy
sessions will depend on the individual. Just as some people exercise on a daily or weekly basis

Since the intestines of the human body are about 26
feet long, is it enough to only clean those 5 feet? Is there a way
to cleanse it all?
The large intestine is between 5-6
feet. The very beginning of it is the Cecum. The Cecum has a small
valve called the Iliocecal valve. This valve is a one way valve.
Food/waste can only travel in one direction, and that's from the
Small intestine (ileum) into the large intestine (Cecum)... and
there's a very good reason for that. You see, most of your
absorption of nutrients takes place in the small intestine... If
water or waste went from your large intestine, (where most of the
waste material is stored) back into the small intestine where most
of the absorptions takes place... your body would be absorbing
waste, toxic material. Typically, what most
people do who are trying to address the entire digestive track do is
take herbs, in conjunction with colonics.
