Cleansing of the Colon

An important aspect in purifying and detoxification.

But just cleaning the large intestine is not enough. The entire intestinal track needs to be cleansed in order to establish optimum health. The selected herbs used in our Fasting and Detoxification Programs (Chompers, Co-Ton) and Pancreatin will loosen the hardened mucus layer on the intestinal wall. The powders (Psyllium Husk and Bentonite) will act as a broom to sweep out the loosened deposit and will absorb toxins from your system. The final step is the use of the Clysmatic, a gravity colonic unit, to cleanse and eliminate the collected faeces in the large intestine.

What happens during the Detoxification and colon cleansing program?
The juices, broth, herbs, holistic treatments, sauna, yoga postures and meditation, as well as plenty of rest and relaxation all work together towards cleaning out the intestines and giving the body time to heal itself.

Although the colon tends to accumulate thicker layers of old toxic waste than the other areas, the majority of what you will see coming out of you will be from the small intestine.

If the small intestine contains blockages around the duodenum area (the small intestine next to the stomach), the secretions from the pancreas, liver and gall bladder ducts (the source of many digestive enzymes) have been blocked. Therefore, you can assume that your body's ability to digest food properly has been greatly impaired.
