Colonics

Rangoli Health – Colon Hydrotherapy is a place where you can restore, relax and rid yourself of physical and emotional toxins that so often hold us back.

What is colon hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colonic irrigation, high colonic, entero-lavage, or simply, colonic, is the process of cleansing the colon by passing purified filtered, temperature controlled water through it with the use of special equipment. It is similar to an enema but treats the whole colon, not just the lower bowel. This has the effect of flushing out impacted faceal matter; toxic wastes, yeasts and other undesirable matter that often build up over the passage of time. Decomposing matter can cause toxic conditions and may lead to health problems such as fatigue, lack of energy, premature aging, allergies, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

What are the potential benefits?
Colonic therapy may assist in improving intestinal discomfort such as bloating, bowel irregularity, yeast infections, IBS and constipation, as well as more general concerns like skin conditions, stress and fatigue. It is also considered ‘the ultimate anti-aging treatment’ and an excellent health maintenance regime.

THE SEVEN R’S OF COLON HYDROTHERAPY:

  • Removal of excess wastes, irritants and allergy triggers
  • Restoration of bowel motility (movement)
  • Rebuilding of the brain-gut connection
  • Rehydration of the large intestine
  • Rebalancing of gut bacteria
  • Repair of the gut wall
  • Re-education of yourself

Preparation

Start three days before your appointment. Please first seek medical advice before changing your diet if you have any health conditions such as diabetes.

Avoid or Reduce

  • “Junk food”, sugar, chocolate and artificial sweeterners.
  • All animal products.
  • Refined wheat products such as bread, pasta and cakes.
  • Fried foods.
  • Coffee, tea, soft drinks and diet drinks.

Eat and Drink

  • Fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Fresh vegetable juice(see Recipes). Have 3 glasses a day of around 200ml each.
  • Herbal teas such as Rooboi tea and Pure water (around 2 liters a day)

Aftercare


Follow a light diet of fruits, steamed vegetables, salads, soups, chicken or fish for two to three days.

  • Avoid gas forming foods: broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, cucumbers, green peppers, radishes, onions, bananas, raw apples, prunes, melons, pears, eggs, beans and legumes.
  • Avoid gassy drinks.
  • Avoid heavy and fried food, flour products, spices, alcohol and coffee for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
  • Eat plenty of fermented food such as sugar-free, natural yoghurt, sauerkraut
    (see Recipes), kefir, kombucha and kimchi (in moderation).
  • Avoid any strenuous activity for 24 hours after the treatment.

 

What will I feel like after the treatment?

Some people feel energised and revitalised, while others feel tired “in a nice way”. You will however be fine to drive home or go back to work. Some people feel lighter, very hungry or don’t feel like eating for hours afterwards. As you release old faceal matter, you may also release old, stuck emotions, so just be open and willing to let go. Depending on your level of toxicity, you may get a headache, feel bloated or tired. Just take it easy and rest. During your treatment, the colon gets rehydrated and therefore you may experience increased urination afterwards. Since the colon has been cleared of solid matter, it may take a couple of days before it fills up again and normal bowel movements are resumed.

Persons with certain medical conditions (contraindicated conditions) are prohibited from undergoing colon hydro-therapy unless they are given approval and/or by prescription from their physician. These conditions include the following:

Contraindicated conditions (Not eligible for Colonic)

• Pregnancy
• Renal Insufficiency
• Cirrhosis of the liver
• Kidney Dialysis

 

Conditions by prescription only

• Uncontrolled Hypertension
• Carcinoma of the Rectum
• Any rectal bleeding
• Severe Hemorrhoids
• Abdominal Surgery
• Intestinal Perforation
• Diverticulitis
• Abdominal Hernia
• Recent Heart Attack
• Fissures/Fistulas
• Anemia: Severe
• Epilepsy/Psychosis
• General Debilitation
• Congestive Heart Failure

First treatment and Consultation

For the first appointment, you’d need to schedule 1.5 hours. You will first sit with the therapist and fill in a questionnaire about your lifestyle, diet, exercise, health history etc. This will give the therapist a clearer idea about your motivation and reasons for the treatment and she can accordingly adjust your treatment to suit your needs.

During the treatment, the therapist will gently massage the patient’s abdomen to help dislodge impacted faecal matter. The treatment lasts between 35-45 minutes. Our clients’ modesty is protected at all times. You will be fully covered, protected and warm during the treatment. Toilet and washing facilities are in the room, for your exclusive use. You will be served herbal tea and a small snack after your treatment.

Is it safe?
Yes. The filtered, temperature controlled water is introduced at a low, gentle pressure, which is even lower than the pressure that stools exert on the bowel wall. Sanitation is vital to this process. The tubes, pipes, and speculums that we use are fully disposable.
Does it hurt?
No. Although sometimes uncomfortable, it is not painful. At the start of the procedure, you may experience a “strange” sensation of wanting to go to the toilet, but most people get used to this feeling in the first few minutes, and even find the colonic treatment relaxing and uplifting.
Will I lose weight?
You may lose some weight. Most people feel lighter after a colonic. Just bear in mind that you lose wastes only, not fat or cellulite. A person living on ‘a diet of processed food’ may carry between 2-5 kg of waste in the colon! If you eat less, increase your fiber intake, move and exercise more, chew better and drink more water, then you will achieve a permanent weight loss.
How many treatments will I need?
Treatments may vary from 2-3 treatments per week (for people who suffer from constipation or other chronic conditions) to once every 3-4 months for “good maintenance”.
Since we live in a rather polluted environment, it is inevitable that our bodies are exposed to toxins in our food, water, air and living environments. A good clean-out every now-and-then can only be beneficial to our overall health. If you adopt our maintenance programme between treatments, then the number of colonics will be reduced, and the periods between treatments will be longer. Colonic hydrotherapy, unlike the use of laxatives, is not habit forming and improves the tone of the colon.

Drinks:

  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. Don’t drink ice-cold water with your meals. Sip room temperature water throughout the day.
  • Avoid drinking water and other liquids 30 minutes before and after your meals. A little Chinese tea at the end of your meal will aid in your digestion.
  • Avoid cold drinks and carbonated drinks.
  • Avoid artificial sweeteners – use stevia or honey to sweeten your drinks.
  • Avoid or minimize alcohol intake and coffee.
  • Replace tea and coffee with herbal tea. If griping occurs drink hot peppermint, fennel or chamomile infusions.

 

Diet:

  • Mix seeds like sunflower, flax, sesame and pumpkin seeds. Store in the fridge and grind 2 tablespoons daily. Sprinkle on cereal, salads or add to a smoothie.
  • Increase the amount of organic, raw fruit and vegetables.
  • Eat beetroot, raw, boiled or juiced daily.
  • Eat a small slice of fresh ginger with rock salt and olive oil 10 minutes before your meals.
  • Have the “Beauty Breakfast” to start your day (see Recipes)
  • Include fermented foods into your diet: kefir, sauerkraut (see Recipes), natural yoghurt, kombucha and kimchi.
  • Chew slowly and keep your mouth shut while chewing, to avoid air getting into your digestive system.
  • Vary red meat, white meat, fish and vegetarian meals.
  • Whole grains (rice, barley, oats, buckwheat, quinoa etc.) are nutritionally better than pasta and breakfast cereals. They contain the roughage than cleans up your digestive system. Generally, they are better for you “al dente” – very slightly undercooked. Soak the grains overnight before cooking and discard the soak water.
  • Beans and pulses are high in fiber. Introduce them into your diet carefully and slowly to avoid excess gas. Soak your beans overnight and discard soak water before cooking.
  • Avoid white flour products.
  • Reduce salt intake as it is dehydrating
  • Eat smaller meals – grazing is better than gorging!

 

Supplements:

  • Take a probiotics supplement:  5 billion CFU’s (Culture Forming Units) minimum.
  • Take psyllium husk, flaxseed or cascara sagrada to assist in bowel movements.

 

Exercise:

  • Exercise at least 3 days per week for 30 minutes.
  • Try rebounding (jumping on a trampoline or chest deep water).

 

Morning Routine: how to retrain the bowel

  1. As soon as you wake up have a glass of warm water with lemon juice.
  2. Make time to sit on the toilet soon after you get up in the morning, do this regularly to establish a new and regular toilet habit.
  3. Use a footstool to put your feet on when having a bowel movement.
  4. Do not ignore the urge to have a bowel movement, go to the toilet ASAP.  

 

REMEMBER: BEING 80% GOOD 80% OF THE TIME WILL MAKE YOU FEEL AT LEAST 65% BETTER…..

AND YOU CAN STILL INDULGE FROM TIME TO TIME!

Liz’s professionalism is top notch and the environment she provides is very comforting and clean. She makes the experience as pleasant, smooth and as
comfortable as possible. The results are fantastic. I have made many dietary changes based on her suggestions since my first treatment and since then, I’ve never felt better in my life.

User

I was very much impressed with the lovely and comfortable space Liz Coetzee created for her practice, with how thoroughly and thoughtfully she handled the colon hydrotherapy treatment and the hygienic standards she maintains. Liz is very personable and friendly, and having done a lot of colonics herself, her skin is radiantly beautiful. After the treatment, I felt lighter and vibrant.

User

I am a survivor of Stage 4 colon cancer and was recommended to Liz by a friend. After surgery I became constipated, but I feel much more
comfortable and “lighter” after receiving treatments. My overall health has also improved.

User

Liz is delicate, kind and full of wisdom regarding colon hydrotherapy. The treatment gave me a better understanding of my own body, mood and lifestyle. Liz gave professional advice accordingly. Thanks to Liz for this professional and intimate treatment.

“All sickness starts in the gut”. True health begins there. Liz realized that long ago and wants to help as many people as she can come to that realization.

User

This is a very magical experience. After my first treatment, I felt tired, but after a day I felt very relaxed and comfortable. I highly recommend this treatment.

User

I love the environment of Liz’s treatment space; it is clean and cozy. Liz is a very professional therapist who cares a lot about the mental and physical wellness of her clients. Since a year ago, I have started colonics treatment with her and there are precious changes of my health and my relationship with food. For anyone who is interested in improving overall wellness, Liz’s service is highly recommended!
