Colon Hydrotherapy

What is colon hydrotherapy? (hydrocolonic)

Colon cleansing also called colon hydrotherapy is the procedure of flushing the large intestine with filtered and warm water. The main goal is to expel encrusted fecal residue, gas, and mucous plagues. This cleansing therapy enables essential nutrients to stay in the body while removing toxins from the body.

Colon therapy involves flushing a gentle infusion of water into the colon. There are no medications or chemicals used during the procedure.

Colonic irrigation or colonic can also help your colon heal itself and work on optimal levels.

Can a colonic help detoxify your body?

The colon is distressed with all the burdens from our daily consumption habits. These burdens include excess consumption of animal proteins, processed food, fat, and sugar. Moreover, toxic material and waste products reduce the body’s capacity to function at an optimum level. That’s why colonics can help detoxify your body by flushing your colon of wastes and toxins.

The procedure is totally pain-free and on the contrary, it is a relaxing procedure. Minor discomfort can be felt during the insertion of the tube for a few seconds.

Colon Cleanse Benefits

Colon hydrotherapy improves overall health while flushing the colon. Here are some proven health benefits of colonics:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Weight loss
  • Improved circulation
  • Better digestive system
  • Clearer skin & eyes
  • Mental clarity
  • Better digestion
  • Relief from bloating and heaviness
  • Reducing waste material
  • Regular bowel movements
  • Prevents the risk of colorectal cancer

Removing toxins literally destroys the habitat for harmful bacteria. Additionally, a clean colon still functions as a last resort for digestion. The immune system gets strengthened so the body becomes more protected against various health conditions such as constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel, bloating, excessive gas, indigestion, allergies, colon cancer, candida overgrowth, skin problems, brittle nails and hair, abnormal body odor, unpleasant breath, backache, stiffness, arthritis, fatigue, insomnia, poor concentration, and headaches.

What about probiotics (friendly bacteria) being lost?
The so-called “Friendly Bacteria” Probiotics reproduce very fast. A healthy colon is a right habitat for probiotics to grow. Additionally, the helpful bacteria are strongly attached to the walls of the colon and it is not possible to lose them.

Will laxatives provide similar results to colon cleansing?
Laxatives are very dangerous for the body. During the “flushing” through laxatives, the body shows symptoms of inflammation. This can cause problems and make it possible for toxins and waste to reproduce faster.

How private is the process?
First of all the procedure is very clean and it is administered by professionals in a private room. The hydro colon therapy machine creates a closed circulation where there is nothing to be embarrassed about.

What is the suggested amount of sessions?
The number of sessions is up to your requirements. But during a detox program, we suggest one session per week. Within a 21 Day program, 3 applications should be sufficient. Each one of them will be more successful than the previous one due to the general detox experience.

How is the treatment procedure?
It starts with our guest lying on a comfortable therapy table. The nurse gently inserts a small tube which is disposable equipment, into the rectum. Filtered warm water starts flowing inside with very little pressure. The fecal matter, plagues, and toxins are released off the walls of the colon.

The nurse controls the water pressure to ensure an effective and relaxing experience. The nurse gives the guest an abdominal massage to help with the procedure. During the procedure, you can go to the bathroom. There is no need to be detached from the machine.

What are the expected results?
Guests often feel more refreshed, energized and relaxed right after the treatment.

Within a few days, more obvious results will start to show. These results include cleaner skin, an increase in energy level, and increased mental clarity. Drinking a lot of water after colonic irrigation will increase the effects. Please check TheLifeCo centers for a session.
