What is the colon?
The colon is the last five feet of the digestive tract. It is a hollow, tube-like organ made up of muscle that moves digested food along in a wave like motion, known as peristalsis, to be eliminated. The colon also absorbs water, nutrients, proteins and cell salts back into the blood stream.

How long is a recommended colon hydrotherapy session?
Each session is 45 minutes.

Is it embarrassing to get a colonic?
No mess, no fuss, no odour! In fact, a very relaxing experience.

What can I expect afterwards?
Most likely, you will feel great. You may feel lighter, enjoy a sense of wellbeing and will be able to go about the rest of your day with no restrictions. For a minority of people, especially after their first colon hydrotherapy, it may trigger bowel movements for the next few hours but there won’t be any urgency or discomfort.

What signs show inefficient colonic elimination?
Some of the signs of a toxic colon are:
  • Coated tongue and bad breath
  • Shallow complexion
  • Abnormal body odour
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Brittle nails and hair
  • Tension
  • Allergies such as Candida
  • Indigestion and nausea
  • Depression
  • Constipation and diarrhea
  • Gas and bloating
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Poor concentration and headaches

Will laxatives accomplish the same results?
Laxatives empty the colon short term. They are an irritant to the body and leave behind impacted toxins and waste on the walls of the colon. Colon hydrotherapy uses pure water and does not irritate the body. One of the tremendous benefits is that it actually hydrates the body.

How is colon hydrotherapy different from enemas?
Enemas are good to clean out the sigmoid and rectal areas of the colon, which extend to about 1ft. A series of colon hydrotherapy treatments can clean out and remove impacted material from the whole colon, which is 5ft long. Additionally, colon hydrotherapy promotes peristalsis and helps the colon muscle regain tone, therefore assisting the return of regular bowel movements.

Is it possible to have colon hydrotherapy treatment whilst having periods?
Colon Hydrotherapy is perfectly safe during this time, and will help decrease the cramps and the bloating accompanying the menstruation.

Do the treatments hurt?
No. In fact many people report their colon hydrotherapy sessions as being both refreshing and relaxing.

Can I work directly after having colon hydrotherapy?
Yes. You can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement.

How does colon hydrotherapy affect the bacteria balance in my body?
Colon hydrotherapy does not flush all good or bad bacteria out of the body. Once toxins are removed from the colon, the beneficial bacteria have a cleaner habitat facilitating their reproduction and multiplication, therefore restoring a positive bacterial balance in your system.

How will I know when the colon is empty?
The colon will probably never be empty, as it’s an organ in continuous use. The objective should not be an empty colon, but rather a well functioning colon.

Are there any contra-indications to colon hydrotherapy?
There are a few contra-indications to keep in mind when considering colon hydrotherapy, including recent colon and abdominal surgeries, hernias, uncontrolled high blood pressure and other conditions. We thoroughly check the suitability of each individual prior to starting any treatment. Contraindications

What can I expect from colon hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure, but a valuable procedure used to assist the body with different colon related conditions. By re-toning the bowel wall and improving colon functions, the entire body is able to function more efficiently.

What should I do to prepare for a colon hydrotherapy treatment?
We ask that you do a few simple things, do not eat anything 2 hours before your treatment and drink plenty of fluids to keep your colon hydrated.

What should I do after a colonic session?
  • Drink plenty of liquids:
  • water, fresh juices, herbal teas and electrolyte liquids
  • Eat vegetable soups and broths
  • Avoid eating raw vegetables for 24 hours after the procedure
  • Reduce heavy meat consumption for a couple of days
