What is colonic hydrotherapy?
Colonic hydrotherapy is an internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of poisons, gas, accumulated faecal matter, and mucus deposits. Such techniques were first recorded in 1500 BC and have been used in traditional and naturopathic medicine since that time. Using disposable equipment, filtered water is gently introduced into the rectum which progressively softens and expels faecal matter and compacted deposits.
Colon function is markedly improved when colonics are used in conjunction with a healthy diet and other complementary therapies.
Why colonic hydrotherapy?
Poor elimination can lead to many conditions, which colonic hydrotherapy can help: constipation, diarrhoea, mucus colitis, spastic colon, diverticulosis, liver sluggishness, halitosis, headaches, flatulence, haemorrhoids, skin problems (acne, eczema, psoriasis ), and intestinal candida.
Is any preparation required?
No special measures are necessary prior to treatment, although results may be more rapidly achieved by following a course in colon cleansing.
Is it safe?
Yes. All equipment is disposable, the water pressure is very low, and the water is always pre-filtered.
Unlike regular use of laxatives, colonic hydrotherapy is not habit forming and in fact improves colon muscle tone.
Most people experience obvious relief from bloating and constipation, toxic headaches, painful haemorrhoids, and skin problems. In the longer term, bowel disease risk is also diminished and nutrients are better absorbed leading to improved all-round health.
How many treatments?
Depending upon the condition being treated, the individual, and the initial results, anything between 3-6 treatments may be recommended spread over one to two months. Deposits built up over a lifetime cannot be removed with one treatment only. Following the course, it is a good idea to have maintenance treatments periodically.
Cleansing and rebuilding a poorly functioning colon is one of the most important steps you can take to greatly reduce the risk of colon cancer and achieve a vibrant state of health.
