What is colon hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy or colonic irrigation has been around since 1500 BC. It is a simple treatment where a stainless steel scope is inserted into the rectum, tubes are attached to it and warm filtered water is gently flushed into the colon encouraging any feces, toxins, gas and any indigestible material to be flushed out.
How does it help?
Colon hydrotherapy helps with a wide range of problems including constipation, diarrhea, candida, headaches and much more. If your bowel is not working properly, every other organ will suffer. When the bowl is clear and working well, bloating is eliminated, waste material is processed well and friendly bacteria and seratonin that are made in the bowl are produced more easily. This will give increased energy, better sleep, reduced hunger and provide an overall more healthy feeling.
Can colon hydrotherapy help you lose weight?
Yes, but it should not be looked at as a weight loss program, the highest amount of feces that has been flushed out in my practice has been approximately 5lbs. If your bowels respond well you will lose weight and no longer feel bloated. The results depend on your body and how it responds to the treatment.
Is it painful?
Colon hydrotherapy is not painful but it can be slightly uncomfortable when a lot of material is moving around, like the sensation you get when you really need to open your bowels!
How often do I need it?
A normal course is 1 treatment per week for a period of 3-6 weeks then once or possibly twice yearly treatment. Some treatments may vary depending on individual needs and goals such as detox or severe, recurring health problems.
Is it dangerous?
No, not at all. A blunt instrument is used and the water pressure is low so there is no risk of perforation. A friendly bacteria tablet is given after the treatment to replace any good bacteria that has been flushed out.
Does it stink?
No. All the material is taken down the waste drainage pipe exactly like a toilet.
