how much does a colon cleanse cost?

Colonics use a high quantity of water to flush the colon. They usually require the most water of all colon cleanses — for example, about the same amount you’d use if you performed 12 enemas.
Of all colon cleanses, they’re thought to be one of the most productive and thorough, since they target the entire colon. The drawback is that they’re performed by a professional outside the home and take about one to two hours in total for each session. This can become costly since each session can cost $50 or more.If you plan to perform enemas somewhat regularly, you can purchase a reusable kit instead of a one-time bottle. Some find that buying an enema kit that includes a bucket is a bit easier to use, since a bag requires that you hang it from somewhere elevated, such as a towel rack in your bathroom. Many people find that buckets are also easier to clean than bags, although kits with buckets can cost a bit more (anywhere from $50–$60 depending on the kind).

Many people have pre-conceived ideas about  colon cleanse and Colonic Irrigation and imagine the worst, whereas it is a treatment that will leave you feeling clean, revitalized and well.

In today’s society people lead a very busy lifestyle and very often the foods we eat everyday contain inadequate nutrients and toxic substances, especially refined pre-processed foods with preservatives, artificial colors and artificial flavors. We often add additional “free radicals” (i.e. unstable molecules that attack our cells) to our food by unhealthy cooking methods, such as deep frying in oil or grilling on an open fire. In addition, we intentionally ingest other toxic substances, such as alcohol, nicotine and stimulants, such as caffeine and other drugs with various adverse effects. After these foods are digested, our liver must work overtime to detoxify all the foreign toxic substances so that they can be excreted through our kidneys and skin.

Some of the toxic substances escape the detoxification process of the liver, especially for people who have compromised liver functions.

We clean our face everyday, but people seldom think about whether or not they need to clean their intestines. Our intestinal tract is like a plumbing system in a house, with the small intestines comparable to sewage pipes and the colon comparable to a septic tank. When fat and debris are poured down the drain every day, the pipes will become clogged. Septic tanks need to be pumped out occasionally. Otherwise, too much waste will accumulate and back up into the house.

 colon cleanse and its clinical applications

Colon irrigation may help greatly in enhancing the ability to absorb many vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids

In our medical clinic we find colonic irrigations are one of the most important treatment modalities available for a multitude of health problems. Many health authorities feel that disease begins in the colon. To be in optimum health the colon must be functioning normally. I believe that the colon is one of the most neglected areas in the medical establishment. One of the major indications for  colon cleanse is constipation. Before discussing the effects of constipation, I will first give a description of how a colonic irrigation is carried out (some technical aspects about the colonic machine) and what some of the benefits would be from such a treatment.
The usual colonic treatment lasts 45 minutes. A small speculum is inserted into the patient’s rectum. This speculum is then attached to a plastic hose which connects to the colonic machine. The colonic therapist then adjusts the volume and temperature of the water coming out of the machine which runs through a plastic hose into the patient’s rectum and through the entire colon. The patient is temporarily filled with a certain volume of water to individual tolerance. This will induce peristaltic contractions in the colon, and the patient will begin to expel fecal matter through the colonic hose which leads back to the colonic machine and through a clear plastic viewing tube. It is quite interesting to see what is expelled during a normal colonic treatment. One may see mucous, parasites and very old feculent material (noted by its dark black color) pass through this tube. This old feculent material may have been lying in the patient’s colon for years. It looks like vulcanized rubber and has that kind of consistency. In addition, the patient may experience sensations of warmth due to the presence of toxins is the feculent matter.
While the patient is receiving the colonic treatment, the colonic therapist slightly massages various parts of the abdomen to help loosen and dislodge areas of fecal impaction. It is very important that the therapist use proper amounts of water. If the therapist uses too much water, the treatment may be uncomfortable or painful and may lead to negative results. If this therapy is conducted properly, it should not be painful or uncomfortable. In addition, when less rather than more water is used, the patient’s colon is forced to do more work, which is an important first step in restoring normal peristaltic activity to the diseased colon.
It should be noted that most patients need a series of colonic irrigations, not just one. The patients may expel considerable gas during the first few treatments. It usually takes a few treatments before one starts dislodging old encrusted feculent matter. One should remember that it usually takes years for the colon to become clogged up with its own waste products. Therefore, one should not be impatient when pursuing a therapeutic course of colonic irrigations.
