What is Colonic Hydrotherapy?
Colonic hydrotherapy is a very simple way of giving your colon, or large intestine, an internal bath. It rehydrates the colon and encourages the release of accumulated waste, toxins and excess gas while at the same time exercising and toning colon muscles.
During the therapy a lubricated disposable speculum, which is 20mm in diameter, is gently introduced approximately 6cm into the rectum. The speculum has two tubes attached one introducing warm, temperature controlled filtered water while the other gently releases waste through the pressure of gravity. Simultaneously water is introduced into the colon and waste is released.
A colonic is generally painless, although some slight cramping can occur. There are no smells or mess as I use a closed system. After the therapy more waste is expelled in the bathroom to complete the release. You will evacuate a volume of old and new waste equivalent to several bowel movements.
The appointment lasts approximately 75 minutes with the colonic lasting around 45 minutes and a digestive consultation will be done before and afterwards.
There are some contra-indications so I ensure that these are discussed prior to making an appointment.
