Colon Hydrotherapy (Colonics)
HYDROTHERAPY: (also known as COLONIC IRRIGATION) is an internal bath, clearing the colon
of toxic wastes, gases, mucosal deposits and faecal matter. The whole colon can be treated
and the water is not retained.

What does the treatment involve ?
A Colonic therapist will guide water at a
regulated temperature, under very low pressure into the rectum. It is massaged around the
whole structure of the colon. The water is then held in the rectum for a few minutes and
the waste matter is piped away with the water.
Here is how the Association & Register of Colon Hydrotherapists in
the UK describe COLONIC TREATMENT
Colonic Treatment is a treatment to aid
the evacuation of waste from the large bowel and to exercise the bowel
muscle. Colonic irrigation is now carried out sympathetically by well-trained
complementary therapists who also advise on nutrition where appropriate.
Colonic treatment used as a naturopathic modality is particular of value in treating:
Accompanied by diet
colonic treatment can assist body detoxification.
With colonic irrigation
many secondary conditions accompanied by poor bowel mechanics can also be aided,
especially those affecting the other eliminative organs - skin, urinary tract and lungs.
Primary bowel conditions
of IBS, where spasm and colic may be relieved, constipation, where impactions may be
expelled and the bowel muscle exercised by water temperature variation and diverticulosis
where regular elimination is important.
Colonic treatment benefits
can often be quickly observed in the form of improved bowel function together with clearer
skin, more mental clarity, and fewer headaches. Circulatory, immune and weight problems
often also improve with colonic treatment
