Colonic Hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestines. The colon is one of the most important organs in the body for maintaining good health. 70% of the body’s immune system is found in the colon. So if the colon is over-burdened our whole health system may be put under stress.
By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through the natural movements of the bowel, known as peristalsis. The elimination of waste, gas, mucus and toxins allows vital nutrients to be better absorbed, leaving you feeling healthy and rejuvenated.
The benefits of colonic irrigation can often be quickly observed in the form of improved bowel function together with clearer skin, increased mental clarity and fewer headaches. Colonic irrigation can also help with immune system, inflammatory problems and weight loss programmes, particularly when accompanied with diet and lifestyle changes.
The initial consultation will involve a recording of the patients’s case history and an explanation of the colonic irrigation procedure. The colonic treatment itself takes about 30-40 minutes during which we may use abdomen massage to stimulate the release of stored matter.
