What is Colema?
One natural detoxification method that is making a comeback in today’s society is colon hydrotherapy. It is a process of thoroughly removing pounds of affected waste matter accumulated in the colon by pumping water into the colon, careful use of regulated pressure, or simply gravity. Also, massages or reflexology techniques are applied to the abdomen during the procedure to encourage muscle contraction or peristalsis and promote the final elimination of accumulated waste.
There are licensed hydrotherapy clinics where trained therapists administer the procedure. There are two types of machines used in colonic irrigation treatment: a closed tube system and an open basin system. United States law considers equipment a medical device because it is used to investigate and treat certain medical conditions that in effect alter the function or structure of the human body. Both types of machines are FDA approved.
Additionally, there are home colon kits on the market, also known as colem kits. Most Colema kits are FDA tested and approved. However, there are a few that are being marketed without FDA approval. Therefore, it is best to check the validity of the company producing the kolem you intend to buy.
Typically, a colema kit includes a 5 gallon gravity tank, a colema board, tubing, and a speculum. The Colema board has a hole at one end with a protective shield for elimination and contamination. Of course, the end of the board with the opening should be placed on top of the toilet, while the other end should be supported by a chair or other support device to prevent it from tipping over.
The kolema is performed with the individual lying on the board with their buttocks positioned in the opening against the shield. The 5 gallon gravity tank should be raised 2-4 feet above the board of the colon. The lift creates a safe and comfortable pressure of 1 psi., flowing along the entire length of the colon. The water to be used for the procedure should be sterilized or purified and preferably close to body temperature. In addition, the speculums used in the colon are similar to those used in the colon with an open basin. It is pencil thin or maybe narrower and is 4 to 12 inches long.
The speculum is designed to remain in the rectum for the duration of the session. The narrow design allows water to flow and at the same time allows water and waste to be released around it and into the toilet. Abdominal breathing techniques as well as abdominal massage can be performed to aid in cleansing. Although the procedure can be performed alone, assistance will make the procedure less difficult. The entire colonic session can last between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the condition of the colon. Instructions for proper use of the equipment as well as for disinfecting the equipment after use may be supplied with the kit.
The disadvantage of colemas is that there may be people who perform the procedure incorrectly. Another case is the abuse of the treatment. Professional medical advice is actually essential in this procedure.
