ABOUT THE SERVICES
Colon hydrotherapy involves the infusion of water into the rectum to cleanse and flush out accumulated waste from the colon. The procedure — called colonic irrigation or colonic — is designed to flush out the fecal matter that can accumulate and harden in the colon.
This build-up may prevent the absorption of water and nutrients and lead to constipation, enable harmful bacteria and yeast to grow inside the colon, and cause toxins to be absorbed through the colon wall into the bloodstream — a process known as auto-intoxication.
What is a typical colonic like? First, you will change into a gown and lie face-up on the treatment table. The nurse inserts a well-lubricated disposable speculum into the anus. The speculum is connected to a tube that is attached to the hydrotherapy machine.
Next, warm filtered water is slowly released into the colon. When the colon is full, the muscles of the colon contract (called peristalsis). Peristalsis “pushes” feces out through the hose for disposal through a closed waste system. When you begin to feel uncomfortable, this is the signal from your body that it is time to release the water. You will not be able to smell the feces, but you can watch as it passes through a clear tube.
You may feel some abdominal discomfort during the therapy, and the nurse will apply light massage to your abdomen to facilitate the process. Once the session is completed, you will have a chance to go to the bathroom and sit on the toilet for a while to pass any residual water and stool.
The colon hydrotherapy session typically lasts about 45 minutes to an hour.
Colon hydrotherapy may strengthen the intestines, improve colon health and provide preventative health benefits, as it is theorised that diseases including cancer begin in the gastrointestinal tract. A poorly functioning colon is a precursor to illness, and proper elimination is a natural way to maintain and restore health.
The therapy improves muscle tone; minimises the absorption of toxic waste; promotes a flowing, moving body system rather than stagnant, inactive clogged bowels; eliminates toxins from the body; balances and cleanses the colon and helps prevent constipation.
