Rock Solid Health is proud to offer hydrocolonic therapy as our primary service. Hydrocolonic Therapy (AKA Colonic Hydrotherapy) is a treatment where the colon is irrigated and cleansed by inserting warm filtered water into the colon. The filtered water causes the muscles of the colon to contract. This contraction of the muscles of the colon is called peristalsis. The result of peristalsis is that it pushes fecal matter out through a hose attached to the speculum. This is a very safe way to eliminate the contents of the bowels.
Colon cleansing therapy is thought to date back as far as ancient Egyptian times. Archeologist have found evidence in papyrus writings indicating methods for cleansing the colon. Cleansing the colon was believed to remove the body of toxins which, when removed improved health.
Today, having your colon cleansed of toxins and fecal matter is widely accepted as improving your well being. Also, the technology for cleansing the colon has made this procedure safe and easy. Rock Solid Health uses only the most sophisticated and modern equipment, known as the Angel of Water ™, considered the gold standard in colon hydro-therapy.

IONIC FOOT BATH THERAPY
Rock Solid Health offers our ultra-relaxing ionic foot bath therapy, which is a natural yet modern method to help the body restore its energy balance. Utilizing a foot bath charged with a high level of negative ions, we are able to stimulate and boost the body’s natural detoxification capabilities. Our ionic bath therapy can aid in the treatment or alleviation of:
- Tension headaches
- Skin ailments such eczema and psoriasis
- High acidity levels in the body
- Chronic fatigue
Ionic Bath Therapy has origins stemming back 5000 years to the Eastern Indian traditions of Ayur Vedic medicine. This system of healing used concentrated sea salt baths to assist the body in drawing out impurities. This type of therapy was also practiced in Roman times in conjunction with the use of public baths. In both cases, impurities were drawn away from the body; from lower concentrations (in the body) to higher concentrations (in terms of salt) in the surrounding water, through both osmosis and diffusion.
The use of ionization; where water (in the confines of a foot bath) is charged with both positive and negative ions (acting then in a similar way to concentrated salt in water) is a new idea, but it is founded on the same historical principle. However, the results of using ionization are much more dramatic and noted in shorter periods of time.
The alternative to taking wheatgrass orally is by taking it as an implant (a.k.a an enema). This is a method that has been said to aid and strengthen the colon as well as the liver. Through a wheatgrass enema the nutrients are absorbed by the hemorrhoidal vein (located just inside the rectum). After the wheatgrass juice passes through the colon it then goes to the liver where it helps the body cleanse.
Wheatgrass juice is said to tone the colon and when it is absorbed into the blood it adds oxygen and supplies energy to the body.
Remember that when you’re dealing with wheatgrass you only need a very small amount of it.
Even when you’re just drinking wheatgrass juice you can get nauseous if you drink too much, so don’t over do it, just stick to the recipe!
People new to wheatgrass may have what we call a small “healing crisis” if they consume too much. This is when toxins are stirred up in your body and you begin to feel nauseous or have to need to run to the toilet. The recommended amount to drink for someone just starting to drink wheatgrass is 1z or less of wheatgrass juice.

The use of Colon Hydrotherapy as a means of cleansing the colon prior to undergoing a colonoscopy has been studied and well documented over the last 15 years. Colon Hydrotherapy is an effective means of cleansing the large bowel in cases undergoing colonoscopy. It is more effective than the use of either oral Mannitol or magnesium sulphate as a means of cleansing the large intestines prior to colonoscopy. Colonoscopy is a important diagnostic procedure undertaken to evaluate colon disorder. Preparing the bowel is necessary prior to colonoscopy, to allow clear visualization of the bowel wall and any pathology within. There are presently a number of recommended measures to prepare the large bowel. These include the use of enema, oral Mannitol and oral magnesium sulfate. Colon hydrotherapy using the Angel of Water colon hydrotherapy instrument has been proven to be effective for pre-endoscopic cleansing. Contact Rock Solid Health to set up your appointment today!
