From Phil Wilson
of The Wood
Well, this is
actually a history of my involvement
with the Wood Colonic Units, and
my experience with colonics.
Interwoven in this history is a little
bit about why this Stainless
Steel proctoscope with plastic jugs,
and metal hoses
is called the Wood Colonic Unit.
There ain't no wood anywhere in
the colonic unit that we ship to
you. None whatsoever.
However, infused in this colonic
unit is a rich tapestry of
Long before I ever heard of Colonics
(having been born in Gary,
Indiana), along came a man by the name
of Dr. Wood.
He actually ran a school of
colonic therapy in my home town of
Well, Dr. Wood lived to be around the
ripe old age of 89 or 90 before
he finally was allowed to graduate.
I was introduced to this colonic unit
by a man we will call "Green,"
who now lives in Hawaii.
He and his friend Rita, who I had
known for many years taught me about
and why this method was superior to
other methods of colonic
Since I had had colonics that were NOT
gravity fed, but were based on
I really found this method of a
gravity fed colonic unit much easier

students, by the name of Helen

Helen taught colonic therapy for
many years in Chicago.
Helen now teaches colonic therapy at
her clinic in Kissimmee, Florida,
just a few miles from Disney World.
Back in 1984, 3 of my good friends
traveled to Chicago to taken Helen
Wood's course in Colonic Therapy.
They came back inspired. Since I
kept on running into Helen at
the National Health Federation shows
we became friends, and eventually, I
was able to work a deal with her,
whereby I am one of the only ones
besides her where one can get these
Wood Colonic Units.
We feel that this site may also
educate people enough to want to take
her colonic course.
There are other many colonic schools.
And all of the shools are

Superior Home Colonic Unit
The Wood Colonic Unit
Dr. Wood did
spawn off a few other
students, who are versed enough in
Colonics to teach colon therapy.
And there are others throughout the
country who teach colonic therapy
using different, more expensive units.
These more expensive units cost about
$5000 each, and are electric
This Dr. Wood Colonic unit is a
professional model, but it also can be
considered a home unit, as well.
There are other do-it-yourself
home units, which are a little
messy, which I do not like, and which
we do not sell.
But before the Wood unit was available
to the public, it was the only
other low cost unit available.S
o it did get considerable press in the
70's and 80's. Because it
doesn't have an outflow tube, it is a
What makes the Wood Colonic Unit
superior to the other colonic machine
(not electric) is that this unit,
as you can see in the pictures below,
has an INFLOW tube, and an
OUTFLOW tube. This is good. No mess.
This means the water comes into the
colon through the proctoscope.
And you then eliminate through
the other tube into the commode.
There is a view tube so that you can
see what is going out, should you
By using your heal, you can keep
the outflow tube dammed up until
your damned well ready to let it go.
Sometimes, you want to keep
things in the colon, and you want to
massage the colon with your hands
or with something like the Hitachi
Then when you are ready, you release
your heal, and a lot of waste goes
out of you into the commode.
The 5-gallon jug holds (yes, I know) 5
gallons of water. I
cut a hole in the top of the jug,
and then let my shower fill up the
jug. I use a shower filter,
definitely, cause I don't think it is
a good idea to put chlorine
into your colon. (We also sell a
very good shower filter, the AquaSana,
I then fill the jug so it contains
almost 5 gallons. One can then
refill the jug 2 more times. Or...
One can leave the shower water on, and
time the water flow so that you
can pretty much fill up the equivalent
3 - 5 gallon jugs, which is
approximately how much water you need
a good colonic treatment.
As you are using the water in the
5-gallon jug, the gradual flow from
the shower if filling up the jug

water at your disposal.
