Colonic Hydrotherapy

Are digestive complaints depleting you of excellent quality life?
It needn't be! We all know "we are what we eat!" That we are also what we DO NOT eliminate. Over years, due to our modern refined diet, stress and lack of exercise, old food material may start to accumulate in the gut. This old food matter hinders normal digestive functioning and, as it putrefies, it feeds harmful micro-organisms whilst generating toxins that are absorbed into your body. Colon cleansing is a gently way in retraining and toning the muscles of the bowel in order to restore the natural cleansing function, of the bowel itself.

Why Colonic Hydrotherapy?
Colonic Hydrotherapy is more effective than an enema, since the whole colon is treated and water is not purposely retained. It is best used as a complementary technique to other therapies. By improving elimination, response to dietary, homeopathic, herbal, manipulative and other therapies is markedly improved. Poor elimination can lead to many chronic conditions that Colonic Hydrotherapy can help: Constipation, Diarrhoea, Mucus Colitis, Colitis, Spastic Colon, Diverticulitis, Liver Sluggishness, Halitosis, Headaches, Haemorrhoids, Flatulence, Skin Problems (acne, eczema and psoriasis), Abdominal Bloating, Asthma, Allergies, Fatigue and many "Psychological" States such as Depression, Lethargy, schizophrenia, etc. It is also of benefit prior to and following barium enemas and during therapeutic fasting. Some complex conditions such as Chron's disease, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) and intestinal Candida are also helped by the resultant detoxifying effect of Colonic Hydrotherapy.

 

What is Colonic Hydrotherapy?
Colonic Hydrotherapy is an internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of poison, gas, accumulated faecal matter and mucus deposits. Such techniques were first recorded in 1500 BC and have been used in traditional naturopathic medicine since that time. Using sterilised equipment, filtered water is gently introduced into the rectum which progressively softens and expels faecal matter and compacted deposits.

 

What is involved?
Conducted by a trained therapist, filtered water at a carefully regulated temperature is introduced under gently gravitational pressure through the rectum into the colon. With special massage techniques, the water begins to soften and cleanse the colon of faecal matter and old deposits which are piped away with the waste water. The therapist works progressively round the structure of the colon allowing water alternatively to flow in and release. The whole process takes about 45-60 minutes. The modesty of the patient is preserved to the utmost during the process.

 

Is any preparation required?
No special measures are necessary prior to Colonic Hydrotherapy, although results may be more rapidly achieved by following a colon cleansing programme.

 

Is it safe?
Yes. Equipment is disposable or sterilised using hospital approved sterilisation solutions which kill all prevalent bacteria, viruses and fungi in minutes. Countless thousands of colonics have been given safely, the water pressure is very low, so there is no danger of bowel perforation and the water used is pre-filtered. Unlike the regular use of laxatives, Colonic Hydrotherapy is not habit-forming, and, in fact, improves colon muscle tone.

 

What are the results?
Most people quickly experience improved mental clarity after Colonic Hydrotherapy. With their toxic load diminished and elimination improved, a greater feeling of well-being, lightness and energy is experienced. Obvious relief from bloating and constipation, toxic headaches, painful haemorrhoids and skin problems. In the longer term, bowel disease risk is also diminished and nutrients are better absorbed leading to improved all-round health.
