Are you feeling tired, sluggish and achy? Not at your best? It may be time to focus on colon cleansing. Here’s why you need to cleanse and important facts about home enemas, colemas and colon hydrotherapy.
It has been said that all disease begins in the colon, but Body Ecology founder Donna Gates takes a more positive and more comprehensive outlook, saying, “All health begins in the digestive tract and creating a healthy colon is a great first step to wellness.”
Think of your colon as the waste management station of your body. All of the cells and tissues in your body – and your major organ of detoxification, the liver – rely upon a well-functioning colon so they can cleanse your body of toxins. Yes, waste products that are left over from digestion of the food you eat is sent to your colon to be safely excreted from your body, but also important nutrients and hormones are still being absorbed or manufactured there as well. When everything is working in an efficient manner, your colon would be not only handle the waste, it would alsoabsorb leftover nutrients (like water, electrolytes, and vitamins) from digested foods and send them back for your body to use.
In essence, your colon is deciding what to get rid of and what important nutrients to redistribute. Now, if you think it’s rare for people to have issues with their colon, think again!
Here are 3 important reasons everyone can benefit from colon cleansing:
Blocked detoxification pathways can result in autointoxication, which according to Dr. Bernard Jensen in his book Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management, “produces undesirable consequences in the body and is the root cause of many of today’s diseases and illnesses.” Symptoms of blocked detoxification pathways or autointoxication are:
Autointoxication can occur for four main reasons: 1. Your colon gets backed up. If your colon gets backed up, waste can back up into the rest of your digestive tract and eventually, into your kidneys and liver.
2. Your body lacks the energy to make your colon function properly. In this case, the problem is not really your colon...it is a lack of energy to move contents through it in an efficient amount of time. Basically you lack the energy that allows your colon to do its job. In particular, energy comes from your adrenals and their partner, your thyroid. Adrenal fatigue or low thyroid are two common causes of constipation or a sluggish colon. Stress and a lack of sleep weaken these energy-producing organs.
3. Your stomach lacks adequate amount of hydrochloric acid. Consistently taking digestive enzymes that contain this vital stomach acid ( HCL) is often the key to eliminating constipation. Hard to believe? It is true. HCL is the enzyme that triggers all the other digestive enzymes to work effectively. It is also essential for absorbing minerals. Both contribute to having more efficient peristaltic movement…the muscle contractions that push food through and out of your colon. 4. Your liver is congested. A liver that is sluggish and clogged-up from toxins creates a vicious cycle where a toxic colon poisons the liver and the congested liver slows down peristaltic movement. Stop poisoning your liver with drugs, alcohol, chemicals and angry negative thoughts and clean your colon.
Colon Cleansing Solutions One of the important principles of the Body Ecology system of health and healing is the principle of cleansing…in other words, detoxification.

The great thing about a colema is that you can hydrate most of your colon while you are lying comfortably on the colema board. A strong folding chair is placed facing the toilet. The colema board is placed on the toilet and chair, so that you can rest comfortably on your back. A pillow and folded towel will make the board comfortable during your colema.
To do a colema, you’d fill a 5-gallon bucket with body temperature, filtered water. The bucket should be placed on a sturdy surface no more than 4 feet above your colema board. You will then siphon water through the surgical tubing so that it is flowing freely through the rectal tip. Stopping the flow of water, lubricate the tip with organic extra virgin olive oil and position your body so that you can insert the tip no more than 3 inches into your rectum.
Once inserted, you can open up the flow of water for your colema session. According to Dr. Bernard Jensen, the colema is the gentlest and most effective form of cleansing your colon and therefore, all of the tissues in your body.
Colonics, enemas and colemas all use pure water to hydrate the muscles of your colon, loosening up old, hardened fecal matter so that it can be safely eliminated. To help you choose your best colon cleansing solution, we recommend working with a certified colon hydrotherapist.
We have witnessed thousands of cases where improving colon health has led to improving overall health. Supporting your body with colon cleansing and a healthy Body Ecology diet may just be your key to feeling your best again!
