Colon Hydrotherapy

Additional Info:

A colonic or colon hydrotherapy is a warm, filtered water irrigation of the large intestine and is a safe and gentle method of cleansing the colon of accumulated waste.

A disposable speculum is inserted approximately two inches into the rectum. Filtered, gravity fed water flows into and out of the large intestine for approximately 40 minutes. Abdominal Massage is done during the session to facilitate the release of gas and fecal matter.

We use a closed system in our hydrotherapy sessions.

Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy

1. Hydrates the tissues of the colon and the fecal matter that has accumulated.

2. Tones or “exercises” the colon – the cycling of water in and out of the colon helps to exercise the musculature of the colon and restores muscle memory to the organ.

3. Assists in restoring bacterial balance in the large intestine by removing the the excess waste in the colon.

FAQ’s

1. Does it wipe out the good bacteria?    Colonics assist in eliminating the harmful bacteria and stored waste in the colon. Any beneficial bacteria that is flushed out of the body can be easily restored with a probiotic supplement or by eating probiotic-rich foods like miso soup, fermented / cultured vegetables. The amount of good bacteria that might be flushed out of the body is minimal and is mitigated by the vast amount of toxic matter that is released during a session.

2. How many will I need?    This is best best determined after your first session, but it’s recommended that you start with a series of 3 sessions – one per week for 3 weeks in a row. After that, we can reassess and make further recommendations.

3. Is it painful?    NO. There may be occasional and slight cramping which typically dissipates quickly and is a sign that matter is moving within the colon. Colon Hydrotherapy can be quite a relaxing procedure. You may feel an increased energy directly or the need to rest after a session.

4. Will I be able to work after?   Yes, you can resume a completely normal day after a session.

5. Is there anything special I need to know?   The most important thing is to refrain from eating or drinking 2 hours prior to the appt. It’s also recommended that you eat clean foods for a few days prior as your schedule allows.

Before your session

For a day or two before your session, drink filtered water (at least half your body weight in ounces), herbal teas, fresh juices, and broths (miso & bone broth). Your food intake should consist of organic and seasonal vegetables, soups and small portions of light proteins and whole grains keeping in mind your tolerance for each food group. Eating in this manner reduce build up of excess gas and encourage optimal elimination during your session.

Day of Session

On the day of your session, drinking water and consuming cooked vegetables will shift your body into a deeper cleansing mode. For approximately 2 hours prior to your appointment, try to avoid eating or drinking so you’re not in active digestion mode and to prevent your bladder from filling during the treatment.

After Your Session

You can eat as soon as you want after a colonic. I suggest consuming foods and beverages rich in beneficial cultures like cultured vegetables and miso soup. Easily digested foods like dark leafy greens and “juicy” vegetables like zucchini and summer squash are also good. Limit starchy and cruciferous vegetables.  Light proteins and whole grains are good choices if your system tolerates them.

It is not uncommon for 1-3 days to pass before your first bowel movement after a session. Remember the whole digestive tract is one long tube, so it may take some time for your colon to refill. Until you have a bowel movement, I suggest that you eliminate foods which you know to be allergic, constipating and bloat inducing like flour based products, cheeses and ice cream, refined sugar products, fatty & fried foods, junk & processed foods and gas-producing foods like beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, onions, peppers, raw vegetables and soy products. Avoid alcohol, heavier meats like beef and pork, and always avoid overeating.
