Colonics (colon hydrotherapy) is the cleansing of the large intestine (colon) with warm water to expel old hardened waste and harmful toxins via the rectum. It is similar to an enema but more extensive. Whereas an enema (which you can do yourself) bathes only the lower portion of the colon, colonic irrigation (which must be done by a trained practitioner) attempts to clean the entire length of the colon (5ft long by 2 inches in diameter).

Benefits

  • Restoring proper balance to the body
  • Stimulating the immune system
  • Allowing freer passage of nutrients into the blood
  • Increasing prevention of toxic absorption
  • Providing a favorable environment for bacteria and micro flora for digestion
  • Strengthening natural muscular contraction activity in the colon
  • Promoting a return of normal, regular bowel movement

Procedure

  • The client rest on a massage bed.
  • The client is covered for privacy.
  • A disposal speculum is inserted into the rectum. Attached to the speculum are two tubes, a little (size of a pencil in diameter) one for filling and a bigger (size of a small penny in diameter) one for emptying.
  • Purified water, carefully controlled by the practitioner, is allowed into the colon via a small water tube.
  • Impacted waste and residue flow out through a second evacuation tube. Expelled waste can be viewed by the client.
  • As the water flows out of the colon, the practitioner gently massages the abdomen to help the colon release its contents. There is no mess or foul odor because it is a closed system.
  • The process is repeated many times during the session, which lasts about 45 minutes. Unlike an enema, the therapy does not require any "race to the toilet" afterward, since most of the water is removed by the end of the session.
  • At the end of the session, the client is allowed to sit on the toilet for about 5 minutes because he/she will continue to release water and maybe feces.
  • One colonic session is basically equivalent to 15 to 20 bowel movements.
  • The number of suggested treatments depends on your reason for seeking out colonics.

There are no scientific studies to support any therapeutic claims for colon therapy. On an individual basis, people do report that colon treatments relieve the distention and bloating associated with  constipation and help restore regular bowel movements. Anecdotal evidence suggests that colon therapy may be useful for a number of ailments including indigestion, gas, headaches, joint problems, allergies, asthma, skin problems, and even toxicity from drugs, alcohol, and smoking.
