FAQ - Colon Hydrotherapy


What does the treatment consist of?

Colon Hydrotherapy is the gradual introduction of purified warm water which flows slowly into the colon/bowel under low pressure via a small tube. When the colon is filled the water flows out through a larger tube bringing with it any loose debris. This is done a number of times during one treatment.

How long is the treatment?

The treatment lasts approximately 1-1.5 hours.

How many initial treatments are recommended?

Between 1 and 3 depending upon the congestion present. Your practitioner will advise you. For maintenance it is recommended to visit your practitioner 3-4 times a year.

Does the bowel get lazy from a lot of colonics?

No, on the contrary, the internal massage provided by Colon Hydrotherapy should help stimulate and tone the bowel muscles.

Does Colon Hydrotherapy wash out essential vitamins and minerals?

When the bowel is congested with waste, it is not possible to assimilate vitamins and minerals properly through the bowel wall.

Does Colon Hydrotherapy wash away the good bacteria from the bowel?

Loose bacteria will be expelled, but the removal of old waste allows for long-term colonisation of good bacteria. Your practitioner will recommend a good short-term probiotic post treatment.

Are there any circumstances in which colon hydrotherapy is not recommended?

Your practitioner will take a detailed medical history beforehand, assess the situation and discuss it with you.

What is the difference between an enema and colon hydrotherapy?

An enema simply retains water in the lower part of the colon. It cannot reach the full length of the colon, nor does it have the same flushing action.

How long has Colon Hydrotherapy been practised?

The first known treatment dates back to the Egyptians around 1500bc. It has been used through the ages to maintain health. From 1920-1940 Colon Hydrotherapy equipment was in most doctor's surgeries and hospitals.

Kale - 'King of Superfoods'

This green leafy vegetable is being hailed as the ‘King of Superfoods’ but it’s not a new kid on the block, kale has been around for thousands of years. Historians tell us the Ancient Greeks used it as a cure for drunkenness and references to ‘brassica’ (a term including cabbage and kale like plants) can be found in Roman manuscripts.
