Lifeline Hygienic's colonics are a very gentle, but extremely effective irrigation of the colon. We use the Wood Gravitational Method, that was designed by a naturopathic physician named Dr. Robert Wood, in the 1930's. Its the most effective and comfortable colonic technique I've and thousands of others have experienced.
The way it works is, that you lie fully covered and modest on a table. An instrument called a speculum, is inserted about an inch or two, into the anus. The speculum has a hook up on it for a feed tube that is connected to a tank of body temperature regulated, filtered water, above the table, as well as a waste tube that goes into a drain, that goes out to the sewer system.
We do abdominal massage, as well as certain reflex points to help stimulate the colon to move out the unwanted debris. You will feel no force or pressure from the water. It mainly feels like you have to eliminate, so no pain is involved.
The time a colonic takes varies from time to time and person to person. It can take anywhere from 20 to 50 minutes. There are many variables.
Most people report feeling lighter, more energetic, and more clear headed after their colonic. Many people who do them regularly have reported that their skin has cleared up, constipation, gas, bloating, migraines and allegies have been eliminated, as well as lessening colds and other illnesses. Generally, they give a greater sense of well being.
