Colon hydrotherapy or colonic irrigation is a gentle infusion of warm filtered water into the colon (which is also known as the large intestine).

Colonics can be useful for many people for the following reasons:

  • To detox
  • General health and wellbeing
  • Digestive issues – IBS Constipation/Diarrhoea
  • Excessive gas
  • Parasites
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Lymes disease
  • Weight loss

Largest internal organ,  approximately 1.5m long 5 cms wide. Last stages of digestion occur here. Electrolytes, vitamins K and B are absorbed. Faecal matter is eliminated.

It is the second brain! If the bowel is unhappy the body is unhappy and it affects the relationship with oneself, food, work and home.

What are signs of inefficient elimination or a colon that is not functioning properly? 

  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Indigestion/reflux
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Chronic headaches/migraines
  • Coated tongue
  • Fetid breath/body odour
  • Brittle nails and hair
  • Depression
  • Nausea
  • Saggy posture/back ache
One of the safest ways is diet, exercise and Colon Hydrotherapy. It is the gentle infusion of filtered, temperature-controlled water, into the colon, by way of a sterile-disposable rectal tube or speculum. Water in – faecal matter flushed out.
The colon is a reflex organ, meaning there are electrical connections to all other systems and parts of the body. When waste material has accumulated over a long period of time it breaks down and become toxic. The body responds by slowing down other functions. This causes constipation and sluggish bowel movement, which will effect all other systems of the body.
To clean out the lower part of the colon, enemas are fine. But you are missing about four feet of the colon. Laxatives are an irritant to the body. Therefore, the body produces a thin, watery substance that goes through the colon and leaves behind impacted toxins and waste.
Colon Hydrotherapy is the gentle infusion of filtered, temperature-controlled water into the colon, which fills the colon allowing impacted toxins and waste to be removed. With an experienced Certified Colon Hydrotherapist, who uses TGA equipment, more toxins and waste can be eliminated by working the different meridians.
An impacted colon can cause discomfort, and cramping may occur as the colon contracts to expel waste. Once the major impaction is removed, many actually find a session pleasant. On a positive note the cramps that may be experienced during initial colonic sessions result in the strengthening and re-established tone of the colon. Think of it as a gym session or workout for the bowel!
