What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy is referred to as colon irrigation, colonics, colon therapy or high enemas. It is the safe and gentle infusion of warm, filtered water into the colon, thus stimulating its natural peristaltic action to release softened waste, which is eliminated through an enclosed colonic machine, odour free. This process is repeated several times during the session.

What is the purpose of getting a Colon Hydrotherapy?

Waste material (ie impacted faeces, dead cellular tissue, mucus, parasites, worms etc), which has remained in the colon for sometime can get toxic and can re-enter and circulate in the bloodstream, making us feel tired, ill or weak. This waste material also alters the proportion of friendly to unfriendly bacteria, thus disrupting the balance of microorganisms essential for the health of the colon. Colon Hydrotherapy safely removes this built up waste material, thereby maintaining a healthy colon.

Will laxatives or enemas help?

Laxatives are considered to be an irritant to the colon, and cause the body to eliminate only the recently digested waste, leaving behind the impacted waste on the colon walls. Enemas clean only the lowest 8-12 inches of the colon, not the entire 5-6 feet of it, which is achieved by Colon Hydrotherapy.

Is Colon Hydrotherapy habit forming?

No. In fact, it helps to improve bowel muscle tone and proper function.

How long does the treatment take?

Each session lasts between 35-45 minutes, and the entire treatment could take anywhere between 8-12 sessions depending on the severity of their health problem.

What should I do before and after a session?

You should refrain from eating at least 2 hours before and 2 hours after your scheduled appointment, and the meal should be light and easily digested.

How am I expected to feel after a session?

Most people remark on how clean and light they feel. Increased energy and a feeling of well being are the most common responses.

Can I work directly after the session?

Certainly. You can work, just as you would after a regular bowel movement.

Is Colon Hydrotherapy painful?

Some cramping may be experienced during the session since the colon contracts to expel the waste, but most people actually find the session very pleasant and relaxing.

What if I have a menstrual period at the time of the treatment?

No problem. It is perfectly safe and beneficial to have a colonic during your periods. In fact, many women find that having a colonic considerably reduces their menstrual discomfort.

Is this treatment safe?

Yes, absolutely. The colonic equipment used is USA FDA registered with temperature controlled sensors, pressure and backflow prevention valves and water purification and chemical sanitizing units. All the tubes and speculums are disposed off after each use.
