Colon Hydro-Therapy is a safe and gentle process to cleanse the colon or large intestine with warm purified water of accumulated waste materials and toxins without the use of laxatives or drugs. As you know, Kevin has struggled with elimination and digestion for many years so it is likely there is a buildup of waste creating more toxins in his body. Our constant goal is to get better and more regular elimination and improved digestion from Kevin. It was explained to us that the large intestine or colon works like a muscle and by stimulating with Hydro-Therapy it will re-train and improve the bowel function. This is exactly what we need for Kevin.
In April we took Kevin to Columbus (a two hour drive) for his first colonic. It had been difficult finding someone to do a child for this procedure and another family had recommended this place in Columbus. I was pretty anxious about it because I was not sure what to expect. I brought a bag full of extra supplies trying to prepare for the unexpected and a two hour drive home afterwards. Stress never helps any situation. It took Kevin 10 minutes to finally eliminate the water that was introduced into his system, and we were only having a 30 minute session. We had to use a vibrating massager on his belly to help him release. He eliminated a lot of waste and in the end we were pleased with the results.
After our revisit with FHC, they recommended that we continue to have more sessions but try to find a provider closer to us to avoid the two hour drive. I found a person in Medina (only a 45 minute drive) who has advanced certification and we feel much more comfortable with, we even like the colonic table system much better. Kevin receives a 45 minute session and she stays in the room the whole time and massages Kevin’s belly to help him release. Kevin is quite comfortable during the procedure and watches a show on his DVD player to keep him entertained. Kevin had a very good session and it was recommended that we have a total of 6 sessions, initially. Kevin had sessions 2 consecutive days the first week and another 2 consecutive days the following week, and one session each the two weeks following. When we were driving home after the first session, Kevin was very verbal! I had not noticed that his verbal sounds had decreased somewhat since our revisit, but the colon cleanse seemed to help improve this again for him. It is expected that after a colonic session, it may take 3 days to eliminate (which did happen after the session in Columbus, so no worries on the drive home), but Kevin has been having daily bowel movements since starting the Colon Hydro-Therapy with no help from any kind of stimulate we have had to use in the past. We will likely have to continue on a maintenance program to keep things going but hopefully we will be able to decrease our sessions to once a month or less at some point.
We are very pleased with the results we are seeing from the Colon Hydro-Therapy and would highly recommend it to anyone who has similar issues. We hope this will continue to help improve Kevin’s elimination and digestion.
