Colon Hydrotherapy

December 24, 2023

Colon cleansing is also known as colonic irrigation or colon hydrotherapy and is normally used as preparation for medical procedures such as a colonoscopy. However, some alternative medicine practitioners offer colon cleansing for other purposes, such as detoxification.

Over time, the build-up of harmful toxins in your digestive system can hamper your ability to absorb essential nutrients. Coupled with the increased risk of these toxins entering your bloodstream, it can leave you more susceptible to viruses and illness.

By having regular colon hydrotherapy treatments, you can help strengthen your gut barrier function. This clears anything that’s blocking the effective absorption of all those essential nutrients that you’re meticulously ensuring form part of your daily diet. The body is an intricate system of processes that balance our health but sometimes that system needs a little help to stay on track and remain as effective as it can be.

Is colonic hydrotherapy safe?

Being an essentially natural and gentle process, there is virtually no danger with a colonic treatment. It is extremely safe when performed by a qualified colon hydro-therapist with expertise in the area.

One of the major theories behind colon hydrotherapy is a belief known as the autointoxication theory. The theory states that undigested elements may cause mucus build-up in our colon. This build-up may produce toxins in the body, which could be poisonous. According to the practitioners, these toxins can cause several signs and symptoms, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Weight gain
  • Low energy

Many people experience some essential benefits from this therapy. They may include:

  • Improved mental outlook
  • Improved immune system
  • Weight loss
  • Decrease the risk of colon cancer
  • Improved metabolism
  • Improved circulation
  • Relieve constipation

During a colon hydrotherapy session, a rectal enema is used with temperature-controlled water (occasionally with various additives as well) to flush the large intestine. Fresh, filtered water is introduced into the colon through a plastic tube. During the therapy, the therapist can direct the water to problem areas by gently massaging the abdominal region. The entire process usually takes approximately 45 minutes. According to the practitioners of alternative medicine, colonic hydrotherapy treatment is safe.
