Colon Hydrotherapy, is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature-regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a session.
Modern colon hydrotherapy equipment is manufactured through compliance with FDA guidelines that dictate rigorous accountability. Our FDA-registered equipment features temperature-controlled water, mixing and back flow-prevention valves, pressure and temperature sensors, and a built-in chemical sanitizing unit. Filtered water and disposable single-use speculae are used.
Prior to your session it is helpful to begin the cleansing process by considering what kind of nutrition, hydration and exercise habits you have. Some basic choices to enhance your experience are fresh organic fruits, vegetables, grains and hydration. Eat slowly and chew your food for better digestion. On the day of your appointment eat lightly and limit your water intake. Avoid any foods or beverages that cause you digestive discomfort such as dairy products, fatty foods, junk food and gas-producing foods such as beans, broccoli and carbonated beverages.
A session is a comfortable experience for many people. You will be given a brief review of the equipment and how to get ready. You will be asked to visit the restroom to empty your bladder and disrobe from the waist down, using a large towel to cover you. On the therapy table the disposable speculum will be self-inserted approximately two inches into the rectum. The speculum will have two outer tubes attached: an inflow tube (which infuses a small amount of water into the colon, gently stimulating its natural peristaltic action to release softened waste) and the outflow tube, where the waste material and water is expelled.
At the close of your session you will use the bathroom. The results leave you feeling empty and relaxed. Depending on your toileting habits it may be 1-3 days before your next bowel movement. The colon hydrotherapy you experienced will have taught you more about your own body’s mechanics, and the removal of waste may encourage better colon function and elimination.
The number of colon hydrotherapy sessions desired will depend on the individual-every person's goals will differ. Just as some people exercise on a daily or weekly basis to tone and tighten their outer body, some people follow an ongoing cleansing, toning and rebuilding regimen for the inner body. Colon hydrotherapy can be used as part of any regular maintenance program.
