Colon Cleansing

Colon cleansing is also known as colon irrigation or colon hydrotherapy…

Colon cleansing is the infusion of water into the rectum as a result of which waste and toxins get flushed out from colon (large intestine). During cleansing accumulated and hardened faeces and waste adhering to colon walls get dislodged and are flushed out, thus freeing the body of associated toxins.

Supporters of this therapy believe that colonic irrigation improves general vitality, boosts energy levels and controls constipation. An increased incidence of gas, bloating and irregular bowel habits is caused by undigested food getting fermented in the colon by the action of colon bacteria.

An enema only reaches the rectum and lower part of the colon, whereas in colon hydrotherapy the entire length of the colon is reached and therefore, it is much more effective than an enema. The sessions are safer and easier than common enema.

How is colon irrigation undertaken?

The person lies face up on a table and a disposable attachment is inserted in his anus. The attachment is connected to the hydrotherapy unit through a disposable tube. A low pressure pump floods several litres of water into the colon. The water may be warm and water pressure may vary, as deemed necessary by the therapist. Sometimes probiotics or enzymes are added to the water.

As water fills up, rectum walls contract, thereby promoting expulsion of faeces and waste through the tube to the hydrotherapy unit. Simultaneously the therapist may gently massage the abdomen. This process of charging water and flushing it out may be repeated a few times. Finally, the person may sit on a toilet and discharge left-over waste and fluid. The entire process may take about 30 to 45 minutes.
