What is colonic irrigation?

Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colonic irrigation, is the therapeutic use of filtered water at body temperature, delivered through a speculum at very low pressure, with the objective of cleansing the colon walls and diluting the bacterial toxin concentration in the large intestine. The colon is about 5ft long and 2.5in in diameter.


What system do we use?

We use the closed system, the device being the latest available in technology. It incorporates a water filtration system, being an ultraviolet light steriliser, two additional filters, one being carbon. We have added a pre-heater water tank for increased safety.

We use only disposable colonic speculum packs. We take absolutely no chances on our clients; so we have not, and will never consider metal or other re-usables.

What to expect during a typical visit?

Before the colon cleansing session, you will be asked to complete a health questionnaire, about your past health problems, surgical or other medical interventions, as well as any medications you are taking. The colonic irrigation session will proceed only if there are no contraindications.

All being well, we will then ask you to go to the en-suite bathroom, undress from the waist down and cover yourself up with a large towel.

The colon hydrotherapy speculum allows for the attachment of a water line and waste line. The water line transports water into the rectum and colon. The waste line allows for the drainage of discharging waste directly into the sewers. Discharging waste can be viewed through the waste line, as well as the illuminated viewing window of the colon hydrotherapy the machine.

During a colonic irrigation session, we apply gentle abdominal massage to help loosen faecal matter. The colonic irrigation procedure is without soiling or odour.

The colonic irrigation procedure lasts 45 minutes, but you should allow altogether an hour and a quarter to an hour and a half for form filling and visiting the toilet after the procedure.

If in doubt about having colon hydrotherapy, please consult your family doctor.

How many sessions?

The optimum number of colonic irrigation sessions will depend upon your individual needs. Soaking starts off the loosening process of impacted waste, and this beneficial aspect is lost with colonic irrigation sessions too widely spaced in time.

Those with chronic conditions may need more frequent colon hydrotherapy sessions until regularity is achieved. Based upon experience, we will advise on what to do next. Sometimes the slightest diet change can improve regularity.

Do you expect to lose weight after your colonic?

We should debunk this straight away. Fat is lost after a colonic because many feel motivated to change their habits, because they feel good after toxin elimination: they exercise regularly and eat healthily.

But what if they cannot stop eating? Depending on where you are on this scale, book a hypnotherapy/EFT/NLP session. Going under the knife for gastric band surgery is always risky, and the service I provide is not.
