The medical world is starting to recognize the colon more and more as the most neglected organ of the body. It plays a vital role in overall health. Unfortunately, because it is so neglected, it is often the starting point for many different diseases and ailments.

Along with a variety of other conditions, colonics can help with skin problems. It does this by enhancing the ability of the colon to absorb vitamins, minerals and other essential fatty acids, which are all vital to healthy skin.

How it helps

When the colon goes without cleansing, excess fecal matter can build up. The surplus accumulation causes toxins and other bad bacteria to be released throughout the body. Those toxins can cause a variety of skin problems including acne, eczema and psoriasis – the skin is the largest excretory organ, and seepage of toxins through the pores is part of what creates these skin issues.

When the colon is clean, vitamin A – and other vitamins and minerals that the skin craves – is more easily absorbed through the colon.

What is colon hydrotherapy?

Colonic irrigation is a natural way to clean the colon. During the therapy, warm, filtered and sterilized water is instilled gently into the colon via a small speculum that is inserted into the anus. The natural peristalsis of your body is activated by the flow of water, which helps move waste and other toxins out of the body.

You are fully covered during the session. The therapist may choose to use abdominal massage and acupressure points to release more waste. A normal colon hydrotherapy treatment lasts approximately 45 minutes.

Additional ailments

Healthy skin isn’t the only benefit you can gain from colonics. Regular cleansing of the colon is also extremely beneficial for constipation, diarrhea, diverticulitis, Chron’s Disease, IBS, bad breath, gallstones, overall sluggishness, irritability and other illnesses.

Transformational Health Colon Hydrotherapy

With a seemingly endless list of vitamins and minerals, many of us struggle to understand how each component plays a crucial role in a healthy body. Rather than worry about buying supplements, we assume that a healthy diet helps ensure that we receive all of these nutrients. But take one look at the studies regarding Vitamin D, and you will want to order a low-cost supplement today.

A product of the sun, Vitamin D is naturally produced in our bodies via exposure to sunlight. Due to sunscreen and other skin care products, the past few decades have paved the way for a serious drop in human Vitamin D levels. While protecting ourselves against skin cancer is very important, studies have shown that a lack of Vitamin D can be associated with cancer, heart disease, rickets and a long list of other medical troubles.

In a recent newsletter from The Wolfe Clinic, you can understand that Vitamin D’s importance has been far underestimated over the past few decades. While some members of the medical field downplayed Vitamin D’s role in preventing illness, research at universities across North America shows that this vitamin shares a strong link to strong immune systems, strong bones and calcium control and absorption.

In one study at Creighton University, researchers discovered a 60 to 77 percent decrease in cancer rates among postmenopausal women, and a study at the University of California-San Diego found that a daily intake of 2,000 IU of Vitamin D and 10 to 15 minutes in sunlight reduced the chance of colorectal cancer by nearly 66 percent.

As we all know, overexposure to sunlight can be harmful, and The Wolfe Clinic newsletter reminds readers that moderate exposure to UV rays is healthy. One look at the dramatic health benefits that Vitamin D offers will encourage anyone to invest the little money it takes for daily supplements. The sunshine vitamin is a simple way to strengthen your body against the illnesses that affect millions of people each year.

With benefits ranging from detoxification to weight loss and beautifying your skin, health enthusiasts are flocking to local spas or installing saunas of their own.

The concept of infrared light is hardly new.

In 1800, William Herschel discovered infrared light after studying the temperatures of different colors of light.[1] Since the 1960’s, astronomers have studied infrared astronomy and in 1983, NASA (yes, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration!), began researching uses of infrared technology for the special needs of space travel.[2]

The first primitive sauna (dry heat), was built in Finland around 2000 years ago as part of a healing regime for mind and body.[3] Moving into modern times, it’s the far infrared sauna that has captured the attention of those of us who believe in natural health.

Far infrared light is the safe band of light that creates heat from the sun. Undetectable to your eyes, far infrared light penetrates into your tissues, providing heat and encouraging the transfer of water across cellular membranes.[4] This promotes hydration and enhances blood flow, benefiting many biological functions.

While far infrared saunas are an excellent way to detoxify your body and boost immunity.

Ear Candling Explained

Author: Jessica

For thousands of years, a form of hygiene known as Ear Candling, was used as a way of naturally cleansing the inside of the ears and head.

Today, more and more are seeking alternatives to digging in the ears with Q-tips or using a hydrogen peroxide flush to clear blockages in the ear canal.

Ear Candling is a natural, non-intrusive procedure that may help alleviate the painful effects of chronic headaches or sinus conditions, ear infections, allergies or vertigo, as well as minor hearing loss due to excessive earwax build up.

Dry hacking cough
Many coughs are a direct result of a sinus infection. The inner ear and small sinus cavities get blocked with mucus and infection sets in. Ear Candling helps drain and dry out the small, dark places where germs live and multiply.

Sinus headaches
Blockages in the inner ear or sinus cavities can cause pressure to build. Ear Candling can help to open blocked passages.


Ringing in the ears can be a cause of dehydration coupled with wax buildup. Drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of pure water per day. Then the Ear Candling procedure can help break down the wax.

Itchy ears
This could be caused from an abundance of yeast in the body, creating a situation of Candida (too much sugar in the body). The Candida starting in the intestines and traveling up into the eustashion tube, can get into the sinus and ear canal. Ear Candling helps to dry out these areas.

How does it work?
It is believed as the candle burns, gentle warm smoke is drawn into the ear canal that softens and loosens candida, wax, and other debris through osmosis. This means anything on the other side of the eardrum turns into a gas form to pass through the eardrum membrane. It is then collected into the remaining unburned portion of the candle.

Does Ear Candling Hurt?
Absolutely not! It is a painless, harmless and totally relaxing experience. If it weren’t for the intermittent crackling and hissing sounds – due to burning of the wax and fungus being drawn up the chimney of the candle – you would never know anything is happening.

How Long Does It Take?
The process takes about 45-55 minutes.

Who Should Not Have Ear Candling?

Ear candling should not be done to people who have ear tubes, perforated ear drums or artificial ear drums.
