4 Important Facts About Colonics
What Is a Colonic and Why Do People Get One?
Let’s start with what is colonic and why people need one. A colonic is a procedure that cleans out your colon (large intestine) . At Clear Living Clinic | Colon Cleanse Toronto , we use an open system colonic equipment called the Angel of Water. It is Health Canada & FDA approved equipment that you are slightly reclined at a relaxing 45-degree angle.
What Is a Typical Colonic treatment process like?
A small disposable nozzle is attached on the inside of the seat and is inserted into the rectum. Once the nozzle is inserted, the gravity flow of water will begin. Just to give you an idea of the size of the nozzle, take a look at your smallest figure (pinky). That’s about the diameter of the nozzle. This process is the most effective and modern way to cleanse the colon.
For those of you that are more visual you can see everything coming out from a slanted mirror facing the lighted irrigation tunnel. For those of you that don’t care to see we can simple cover the mirror and allow the process just to take place.
A couple of tips:
· The longer you can hold the water the deeper the irrigation will go into the colon.
· Just relax. The tighter you hold your body the less affective the process will be
· A question of modesty? You will be covered with a fresh blanket at all times
The actual colon irrigation process is typically about 30-45 minutes however we set aside an hour for each client as some may take more time.
Few Reason Why to Get Colonics?
Many people say they do it for the following few main reasons but not limited to:
• Improves overall Digestive Function and Energy
• Decreases Constipation symptoms
• Reduces/eliminates Gas & Bloating
• Purifies Skin
• Helps to eliminate Parasites and Candida

When we want to improve general health, we consider colonics as a form of alternative therapy.
Complications from Colonics and Who Should Avoid Them
People with specific conditions, such as ulcerative colitis, diverticular disease, Crohn’s disease, severe hemorrhoids, heart disease, blood vessel disease, congestive heart failure, severe anemia, , recent colon surgery, abdominal hernia, gastrointestinal cancer, and intestinal tumors are among those who should not have a colonic.
We suggest pregnant ladies to not have a colonic as this may stimulate uterine contractions.
After colonics, some people feel little tired, and few people experience slight bloating (although most people feel flatter stomachs after the sessions) which can last for few hours. Most people can resume normal activity as usual right after their session.
