Colon Hydrotherapy (or colonic irrigation) is a gentle treatment, which involves the slow introduction of warm, filtered water into the colon via the rectum.
The water is introduced at a very low and carefully controlled pressure.
The water, combined with gentle abdominal massage, helps to soften faecal matter and hardened deposits so that they can be expelled naturally by your colon and piped away with the waste water.
The treatment is completely hygienic as all equipment is disposable and sterile.
Colon Hydrotherapy can be useful in treating conditions such as:
* Irritable Bowel Syndrome
* Spastic Colon
* Atonic (Sluggish) Colon
The appointment is 1 hour long but it is important that you arrive 10 minutes before in order to fill out a consultation form, which is required before you have your colonic treatment.
Your colon-hydrotherapist will go through your form and then explain the colonic irrigation treatment to you.
The colonic treatment itself usually takes between 30 – 45 minutes.
A brief rectal exam must be carried out, then a speculum is gently inserted to open the sphincter.
An inlet and outlet tube is attached to the outside of the speculum, so the system is open, with water going in and water and waste out.
The waste is enclosed in a transparent tube so your therapist can observe what is being expelled and tailor your after care advice based on what they find, what your needs are and what is discussed in the case history taking.
This could include nutritional and lifestyle advice.
Colonic irrigation is encouraging the elimination of lingering waste and intestinal gas can help with other digestive problems like: Diverticulosis (not when inflamed), Bloating,Flatulence,Indigestion,Candida,Parasites
Colonics can be beneficial to those with the following conditions, when linked to poor elimination or compromised gut function:
* Halitosis (Bad breath)
* Multiple Sclerosis
* Skin problems: eczema, acne. Psoriasis
