Colonic Today is a subsidiary of Lifetime Health & Consulting, LLC (LHC).  LHC was established in 1992, for purposes of providing Holistic Health Services to individuals seeking adjunct therapies for assistance with healing.


After working with many clients, LHC realized there was a disconnect between the medical community and the alternative health industry, specifically Colon Hydrotherapy.  Many clients would communicate a desire to relay benefits of colonic therapy to providers by asking for additional, scientifically proven information.  Others sought physician approval, without success, after experiencing medical relief from a series of treatments.  Lastly, one LHC client stated, in tears, “My doctor won’t listen to me” regarding her health improvements after colonic therapy treatments. 


It became obvious that additional steps must be taken to reduce the communication gap for benefit of the client. The final push to publish a trade journal was based on a December 2008, report compiled by the National Institute of Health’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), revealing CAM usage amongst Americans. The report noted frequency of CAM use and defined terms related to CAM, yet colon hydrotherapy was missing. The report also pointed to a decrease in CAM usage for stomach and intestinal illnesses.  The inclusion of colon hydrotherapy in this statistical report could have made a significant data difference.  Thus, the need to publish a trade journal representative of the industry was finalized in January 2010.  Colonic Today is committed to fostering collaborative relationships within the medical community.
