What is Colon Hydrotherapy
Colon hydrotherapy involves gentle, continual bathing of the colon by infusing warm filtered water into the rectum. This process enables the water to cleanse the large intestine, resulting in a gentle release. During the treatment, purified and filtered, temperature-controlled water is fed into the colon at a controlled rate. Although this process is sometimes uncomfortable, it’s not painful.
The water flow triggers a response in which the patient begins to expel the water and waste through a tube that allows the therapist to monitor the expelled bowel contents. This response is known as peristalsis, which is a normal pattern of smooth muscle contractions that propel foodstuffs through the digestive tract. During the treatment, the therapist gently massages the patient's abdomen to help dislodge impacted matter.
Why have Colon Hydrotherapy
The indigestible portion of the food you eat lodges in the large intestine and stays there until eliminated in a bowel movement. Infrequent movements or constipation can lead to partial decomposition of these waste substances, which encrust the colon and further hinder elimination.
These toxins in the waste substances are reabsorbed into the bloodstream, lowering the body's defence against bacteria and viruses. The body strains to fight against the poisons, and if the effort is too great, various organs or even whole systems can break down.
