Aqua qi will support any cleansing modality and may even reduce the discomfort associated with rapid purification.

Pimples. Rashes, dark circles under the eyes, swollen joints, yellow/green and blotched complexions often indicates a build up of tissue acid waste inside the body.

Today we are exposed to the greatest toxic load in the history of our planet, and an ongoing periodic detoxification is essential to maintain your health and avoid disease.

The aqua qi (ion cleanse-foot detox) in combination with a healthy low stress life style will provide a through and efficient way to maintain high energy wellness.

Aqua qi creates precisely the same environment as a walk along the beach but is more powerful because your feet are in direct contact with the ions being manufactured in the water. Within seconds, millions of ions enter your body and begin to neutralize the tissues’ acid wastes.

The particles, fat and mucus residues found in the water after bathing reflect the waste that have left your body during the 30 minutes session.

Your body will feel lighter after the first session. You will think more clearly, have more energy and enjoy a greater sense of well-being.


Colon Hydrotherapy

Friday, April 30th, 2010

An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure!

Despite the miracles of modern medicine, we are not a healthier society than ever before. More people than ever are suffering from conditions such as:

*constipation and diarrhea
*bad breath
*dependency on laxatives
*sinus problems
*frequent headaches
*food allergies
*low back pain
*weight problems
*lower resistance to infections
*memory loss
*menstrual problems
*general aches and pains
*yeast infections
*skin problems
*irritable bowel syndrome

In the united states, we spend over four hundred million dollars per year on laxatives alone. Seventy million of us have bowel problems. One hundred thousand of us have colostomies every year. Colon cancer is the second leading cancer related killer on record.

The american cancer society suggests that the increase in bowel cancer is due to pesticides and herbicides sprayed on our crops, hormones and antibiotics fed to our livestock, and carcinogenic agents found in the air that we breathe and the water that we drink. Our colons can become a welcoming home for these types of toxins.

Why is this happening to us? What can we do to protect ourselves?

The answer lies in the large intestine, or the colon. The colon is a hollow tube of muscle that spans about five feet long and is about two inches in diameter. The colon is the last segment of the alimentary, or digestive tract. It serves as a final phase of digestion in which fecal matter, or waste, is compacted; water and vitamins are absorbed into the blood stream, and the remaining undigested proteins are converted into amino acids.

These events occur as the colon moves in a wave like motion called peristalsis to push matter along. Normal peristaltic movements can be blocked from a variety of reasons. A typical american diet of flour, dairy products, meat, processed foods, sugar, and preservatives will cause fecal matter to build up in the colon . In fact, most people are carrying several pounds of dried up fecal matter impacted in their colons. Furthermore, laxatives may cause atrophy of the muscle and perpetuate the cycle that they are supposed to end.

As this stagnant fecal matter builds up in the colon, the colon will act as a sieve to allow toxins and bacteria to escape through the colon and enter into the blood stream, just as food and vitamins normally would. Once these toxins are blood born, they are free to travel throughout the body and cause chaos and destruction to all the body’s system causing symptoms such as the ones listed above.

So what can be done to prevent this? What is the magical “ounce of prevention” in these cases?

Many people are re-discovering colon hydrotherapy or colonics.

Colonic Preparation Instructions

It is important that you follow the steps below to ensure a successful colonic treatment:

No read meat or pork for a full one-week prior to visit.
No white bread for one week.
No food 2 – 3 hours prior to colonic.
No coffee (or at the very least cut way back).
No sweets or sugar (or cut back significantly).
No fried food, dairy or much soy-based food.
Drink 6 – 8 glasses of lemon water each day, 3 before noon.
Eat lightly cooked vegetables, green juices, baked or steamed fish or chicken.
Constipating food and drinks to avoid for 3 – 5 days prior to your colonic hydrotherapy appointment: Bananas, potatoes, chocolate, fried foods, carob, cheese, white flour, pickles.

Note: It is natural to receive your period early when beginning to detox . . . keep your appointment.

Why “re-discovering”?

This type of irrigation, or colon hydrotherapy has existed for thousands of years. This therapy dates back to approximately 1500 bc as it was first recorded in ancient egyptian documents. It is also mentioned in the writings of the sumerians, chinese, hindus, greeks, and romans. Later egyptian knowledge from herodotus (484-425 bc) discussed a monthly 3 day cleansing. Until the rise of the pharmaceutical industry, colon hydrotherapy was an important part of most hospital wellness protocols.

Today colon hydrotherapy is a gentle flushing of water into the colon in order to re-introduce normal peristalsis movement while simultaneously washing out toxic material. A colon hydrotherapy session lasts about an hour in duration, and it is the continuous bathing of the large intestine (colon) in order to release and cleanse the organ by removing the impacted feces, parasites, trapped intestinal gas, and cellular debris which would otherwise escape the colon and circulate the body through the blood stream.

During your colonic at fabylous living you will be attended to by one of our trained, certified, and licensed therapists. The therapist will guide and assist you by educating you towards the physiology of the process by offering nutritional counseling, utilizing different techniques; such as massage, usually in the back and abdomen with organic oils and hot stones, vibrational therapy with tuning fork, and/or applying acupressure/acupuncture to make your experience as safe and comfortable as possible and you will be giving an acidophilus (probiotic)capsule after your treatment, to refresh the good bacteria in your intestines.

Lymphatic health and treatment

The lymphatech is a class of technology known as vibrational science. The applications are a safe and effective tool for detoxification of sluggish lymphatic system. Lymphatech achieves its results on an energetic level. Cells have an electromagnetic charge that either bind them together or keep them apart. It works by rebalancing the charge of the cells’ electromagnetic field. It provides information in the form of harmonic sounds and light to the energy field of cells. The result of this application is the breaking up of the blockages through the re-polarization of proteins.

When the polarity of the blockages is reversed, the material slowly erodes and flows out through natural system channels. The results of this cleansing may positively affect the general health of an individual.
