Unlike the trendy reason for colonics, I do not get them for weight loss. I have always suffered with bowel issues
and have taken numerous forms of colon cleanse products. The colonics have done two main things for me:
1) retaught my colon how to move without the aid of so many products
2) cut down on the severity of cramping during my cycle

I met the folks at In Harmony about a year ago when I was on a mission to find the right colon hydro therapist. Janice
made me feel comfortable and explained the process to me, and I knew I was in good hands. It has been
a life changing experience for me and I have encouraged my friends and those that I love to have
at least several sessions with Janice.

Colon health is essential to good overall health. The main purpose of the colon, or large intestine, is to collect all types of toxic waste from the body and eliminate it. The average person has 7 to 25 pounds of fecal matter in their colon, and when this waste material becomes compacted and stagnates on the intestinal walls (i.e. impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucus, parasites, worms, etc.), it poses several problems.
First, this material is highly toxic, and these poisons can re-enter and circulate in the bloodstream, making us feel ill and sluggish. Second, impacted materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and vitamins, as well as prevent the growth of friendly bacteria. Finally, a buildup of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action, causing constipation and pencil-thin bowel movements.
Colon dysfunction is prevalent in all civilized societies, but there is a high incidence in the U.S. due to a processed and fried-food diet, as well as high stress levels. Some of the common signs that your body may benefit from an internal cleansing are:
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and gentle infusion of sterilized, filtrated warm water into the colon via the rectum. As opposed to a gravity-fed system, In Harmony uses the Dotolo, an FDA-approved closed loop system. No chemicals or drugs are used, and the entire therapy is both relaxing and effective. Your therapy is administered in a private, comfortable setting by a highly-trained and compassionate professional who uses massage and other techniques to help the colon move the impacted matter. The entire process takes approximately 45 minutes while lying relaxed on a table.
In a very real sense, a colonic is a rejuvenation treatment. Most patients find themselves feeling lighter, having lost 2-3 pounds of old fecal matter, refreshed and more relaxed than when they arrived. A minimum of three sessions is recommended to fully cleanse the colon.
