Do I Need a Colonic?

The colon's main function is the elimination of body waste.  We experience health and well being 

when the colon is clean and normal.  When the colon is sluggish, the body waste accumulates,then constipation results.

When constipated, the colon becomes packed or lined with accumulated hardened feces lodged in the pockets of the colon walls.  When this happens, the colon is unable to properly evacuate.  This waste buildup may occur over many months or years. It can actually result in 5-10 pound weight gain and a distended or abnormally shaped colon.  A clogged colon will then interfere with final absorption and digestion of food, depriving the body of necessary nutrients.  This results in fermentation and putrefaction of undigested food which creates poisons or toxins.  This condition is known as auto-intoxication or self poisoning. These poisons are re-absorbed into the bloodstream and lymph system.  The lymph system is our waste management of toxins within our body being released.  The brain and nervous system becomes depressed and irritable causing that tired and listless feeling.  The lungs can create foul breath and stressful breathing.  The digestive organs create skin problems.  The joints stiffen and become painful due to toxic deposits.  Unfortunately, overload in the bowel are generally treated as symptoms rather than treated as the cause.


The hidden epidemic no one wants to talk about: parasites.  They steal nutrients and weaken the body.  Signs to be aware of: itchy ears, nose, throat, and anus; forgetfulness, diarrhea, gas and bloating, constipation, abdominal cramps, nausea, foul body odor, and foul breath. Here are two informational videos about parasites

Hydro Colon Therapy in conjunction with herbal support assists in successful elimination of parasites, viruses, and bacteria. Distinct Touch's Seven Buds herb formulas help to repair and support the damaged tissues caused by parasites, viruses, and bacteria. Parasites cause improper functioning of your organs and block your immune system. (For more information, please view the Animal Planet's 'Monster Inside Me' video below by clicking link below which will redirect you or view the YouTube "Brain Worm" video below right.)

What is a Colonic?

Hydro-colon Therapy is an irrigation method of purifying the large intestine which leads to the detoxification of the whole system.  Our hydro-colon machine has a self cleansing cycle which occurs after each treatment.  We only use disposable speculums once on a closed irrigation system.  Our special herbal treatment soothes the colon as it cleanses.


How to Prepare for a Colonic


Drink plenty of water (at least 40 oz.) and plenty of rest the night before.

Wait six weeks after surgery.

Do not eat at least 3 hours before your appointment time.

Shower, rest and eat a nutritious meal afterwards to enhance the detoxification process.

Distinct Touch and Colonics

Who Needs To Cleanse?


​"Colon hydrotherapy, is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a session." (quote from

Distinct Touch uses a colonic machine with a self cleaning cycle which occurs after each treatment.  We only use disposable speculums once on a closed system. A colonic involves disrobing and wearing a hospital gown. Similar to an edema, the speculum is attached to the rectum and heated warm is effused into the colon. The procedure is not painful or uncomfortable. We always respect and protect your modesty.

Can I Be Constipated Even If I Have 1 - 3 Bowel Movements A Day?

Yes, the colon is much like a water pipe partly obstructed by mineral deposits and corrosion.  An opening allows some water to flow through, but it doesn't mean it's clean.  Eventually, the opening becomes narrow as the waste builds to the point where it closes.  This is known as impaction.

How Many Times Do I Need To Have A Colonic?

If the waste is so hard and lodged in the colon walls, it may take a series of colonics to sufficiently soften and release the encrusted waste.  The number of treatments will vary with each individual.  Your colonic therapist can advise you.

Colon Irrigation Habit Forming?

No, when it is used temporarily in conjunction with a cleansing program.  The purpose of cleansing the colon with a colonic is to remove the encrusted waste and to repair the colon walls.  The colon cannot help itself to stay clean when it is constantly working to get rid of accumulated wastes, gasses, and poisons.  The colon needs HELP!
