What is colon hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle internal bath that helps deep cleanse the colon of toxins thereby  [image] encouraging the entire body to detoxify and return to a more normal, healthy state of well-being. During the treatment 15 to 30 gallons of water flow through the colon using a disposable speculum (water tube and an evacuation tube) that is inserted in the rectum. The Colonic Instrument provides purified water that flows into the colon via the small water tube and leaves the colon through the larger evacuation tube carrying out excess impacted fecal matter, gas, mucus and parasites directly to the sanitary sewer system. There is no odor or health risk involved in the colonic procedure when performed properly by a trained practitioner.

Why clean the colon?

Colon Hydrotherapy is a valuable procedure used to assist the body with the reversal of a multitude of health conditions, resulting from improper diet and years of poor elimination. The latest estimates show that over 90% of diseases in North America are directly or indirectly attributable to an unhealthy colon. Health problems like headaches, skin blemishes, bad breath, fatigue, arthritis and heart disease are all linked to a congested colon. When colon health is compromised, waste backs up, becomes toxic, and releases the toxins through the bowel walls into the bloodstream. Cleansing the colon lightens the toxic load on every part of your body.

Benefits of a Session

Colon Hydrotherapy sessions can be used to reinvigorate the bowel to function normally and to bring balance to the Immune System. After the Colonic you may experience renewed energy, mental clarity and a strong sense of well being. Clearer skin, healthier hair, reduced bloating, improved digesting are many of the noticeable differences within weeks or days of a colonic treatment.


The contraindications of colon hydrotherapy include divirticulitis, colitis, Crohn's disease, sever hemorroides or tumour in the rectum or large intensine.
