What is the Colon?
The colon (also known as the large intestine or bowel) carries out many functions which are essential for keeping us healthy. It carries out a number of vital functions including the completion of the digestive process involving absorption of water, minerals and vitamins into the blood stream, as well as ridding the body of waste materials. Sometimes a combination of poor diet, stress and lifestyle can make the colon lose its ability to function properly, therefore making it harder for the body to eliminate harmful toxins, which can then have an adverse effect on the body and mind.
History and Facts Relating to Colon Hydrotherapy
Colon Hydrotherapy also known as colon lavage, colon irrigation, colon cleanse, complete and enhanced enema, bowel or colon wash was first recorded in the Egyptian Ebers Pyrus in 1500 BC!
Many famous and distinguished physicians of the past have recognized the benefits and/or used colon hydrotherapy to the benefits of their patients! Some of these you may have heard of, Hypocrites (4th & 5th century BC), Galen (2nd century AD).
Physician, James A Wiltsie MD said, “as long as we continue to assume that the colon will take care of itself, just that long we will remain in complete ignorance of perhaps the most important source of ill health in the whole body”. Nearly 37,000 colon/bowel cancers are diagnosed every year! Most of us have suffered with some form of bowel complaint at some stage in our lives, with 1 in 5 of us suffering with IBS.
The liver is the main detoxification organ in the body. Blood that is received from the stomach and intestine goes straight to the liver to be cleansed of any toxins (poisons). If the liver is overloaded with too many toxins it is unable to detoxify adequately resulting in some toxins freely passing through the liver to other organs within the body via and including the heart. Colon hydrotherapy can help clean and dilute these toxins reducing the burden on the liver and rejuvenating the immune system, resulting in internal balance and overall health!
There has been many misconceptions and misunderstandings about colon hydrotherapy over the years, mostly due to the practice being offered by the unskilled individual with limited knowledge of the body and it’s many functions. If offered correctly colon hydrotherapy can offer the individual very individual results.
The fantastic results have continued to impress, thus bringing back this very ancient practice into the modern world!
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Many people have pre-conceived ideas about colon hydrotherapy/ colon cleansing. The treatment itself is a gentle and comfortable procedure infusing temperature and controlled filtered water. It’s the safest and most comfortable way to cleanse the body and helps to eliminate stored faecal matter, gas and toxic substances from the colon (large intestine) which is one of the most important organs in your body. The therapeutic effect improves muscle tone and re-stabilizes normal bowel movements enhancing the colons ability to absorb nutrients. One of the best things about colon hydrotherapy/colon cleansing is that the benefits of the treatment are very personal to the client.

At your first appointment your therapist will take a full medical case history and will explain the procedure and treatment process to you, please do not hesitate to ask questions. When you are completely happy and at ease with the process we will ask you to go to the toilet to empty your bladder, and you’ll have a black blanket to wrap around your bottom half to maintain modesty at all times. You will then get comfortable on a treatment bed, ready for your hydrotherapy session. A small disposable tube is inserted into the first part of the rectum while laid on your side, this does not hurt!!!!!!! Warm soothing water is then infused into the colon to the individuals comfort (you are in complete control) during your colon cleansing session your therapist may give you an abdominal massage. Massage has a calming effect on the colon which will increase the effectiveness of peristalsis (the muscular action of the colon to push waste through) The water is then free to be naturally expelled along with any waste from your colon into the second tube directly into a waste pipe = no mess!! No odour!!
