Colon Hydrotherapy is the practice of safe and gentle infusion of water into the large intestine to detox the body and cleanse the colon. This is done with a discreet closed system in the presence of a professionally trained and experienced therapist.
The colon is a tube of muscle which needs to be toned to stay in shape just like any muscle in your body. If you suffer from chronic constipation, chances are your colon has atrophied and needs to be exercised. A poorly functioning colon leads to constipation, bloating, headaches, fatigue, dull skin, weight gain, bad breath and poor digestion.
The gastrointestinal tract contains a large portion of the immune system, which is there to prevent harmful substances from entering the body. If your colon becomes inflamed or swollen this increases the opportunity for harmful substances like neurotoxins and microbes to enter the body.
It is important to promote the friendly bowel flora to ensure efficient digestion. Having a colon hydrotherapy treatment allows the opportunity for friendly flora to repopulate.
Inflammation, intestinal permeability and disruption of intestinal microflora are linked with mood disorders like depression, panic attacks, anxiety, ADD, arthritis, allergies, eczema and asthma.
Clients who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, parasites and chronic fatigue have also benefitted from colon hydrotherapy treatments.
During fasting, detox or cleansing it is a good idea and advantageous to clear the colon with a colon hydrotherapy treatment as this helps to reduce or avoid symptoms of detoxification such as headaches, tiredness, aches and pains.
Our clinic also welcomes clients who have been requested by their health practitioner to have a colon hydrotherapy treatment prior to a colonoscopy.
