How Many Colon Hydrotherapy Does One Need?
Of course, the number of colon hydrotherapy sessions desired will depend on the individual. Every person’s goals will differ. Just as some people exercise on a daily or weekly basis to tone and tighten their outer body, some people follow an ongoing cleansing, toning and rebuilding regimen for the inner body.
Modern Colon Hydrotherapy equipment is manufactured through compliance with strict medical guidelines that dictate rigorous accountability. The equipment features temperature controlled water mixing and back flow prevention valves, pressure and temperature sensors, and a built-in chemical sanitizing unit and/or water purification unit. Disposable single-use rectal tubes and speculums.
Colon Hydrotherapy Client
Many clients enjoy the benefits of colon hydrotherapy. Many of these clients claim that due the colon hydrotherapy, they have been able to live their lives without drugs, tranquilizers, muscle relaxants, and pain pills. In society where Eastern and Western medicine combined to give us the best of both worlds, the acceptance of colon hydrotherapy has continued to grow with impressive results.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Is Colon Hydrotherapy safe?
Yes, the water is introduced at a low gravitational pressure so there is no danger of bowel perforation. Colon hydrotherapy, unlike the use of laxative, is not habit forming. We use only disposable single-use rectal tubes and speculums.
Q: Are there any contra-indications?
A: Yes, you cannot have colon hydrotherapy in any of the following situations:
2) Cancer of the Colon or GI tract.
3) Congestive heart failure.
4) General debilitations.
5) Carcinoma of the rectum.
Q: Is there any special preparation?
Not really. It is not good to miss a meal before the treatment but equally you do not want to have eaten a large meal just before the treatment. A light meal a couple of hours before is best. For abdominal massage during colon hydrotherapy treatment we recommend do not drink a lot of liquids.
Q: What will I feel during the treatment?
Warm filtered water is gently introduced – via a speculum – into the rectum and up into the colon where it soaks away and cleanses the unwanted material. The water stimulates peristalsis (i.e. the contraction of the colon) so the colon then pushes the water and matter out through the tube. You experience the peristalsis as a strong urge to go to the toilet. You do not have to push and you do not need to hold on, relax and the body will do the work for you.
Q: Can it be painful?
No, it is not painful. But there may be some discomfort. Especially people with IBS or candida may experience this. The therapist is however at any time able to release the water pressure to reduce discomfort immediately. A woman may compare this type of discomfort – if it does occur – to the contractions that come with the periodic cycle.
Q: How might I feel after the treatment?
How people feel after the treatment varies enormously. Some are ready to play for England, others would like to climb under the duvet for the rest of the day. You can feel a bit cold or shivery. Sometimes the treatment initiates emotional release as our feelings are often stored in the gut. You can then feel a bit vulnerable. After the first one or two treatments it becomes easier and people often fit it in their lunchbreak.
Q: How many sessions do I need?
It really depends on the condition of the bowel and how it responds to the treatment how many exactly are needed. It has taken a lifetime to build up the matter in the colon, so it is reasonable to expect that it will take a number of sessions to remove it. For healthy people 4 to 6 sessions will usually give a good clear out. Clients who take it further will always gain more! People with IBS sometimes respond quite well whereas others need more sessions. For any serious condition a treatment plan can be made in consultation with the therapist.
Q: Would enema’s help me as well?
Yes, as an addition to colon hydrotherapy enema’s can work quite well. Enema’s cannot be compared to colon hydrotherapy though. Colon hydrotherapy inserts 20 or 30 gallons of water into the colon in one treatment and cleanses the bowel far better and far deeper. It is like comparing a bike with a car. Internet sites may sell home colonic sets but do not be fooled! These are enema kits.
Q: Will it make the bowel lazy?
No, it is an exercise for the bowel. Stimulation, contraction and relaxation will help tone and reshape the colon to aid incomplete elimination.
Q: Will it wash out all the good bacteria?
It will wash out some good bacteria as it will wash out lots of bad bacteria. In a healthy person the good bacteria will reproduce itself within 2-3 days especially now that the environment is cleaner. Probiotics or prebiotics may be recommended if it seems appropriate. In cases of candida or when antibiotics have recently been used a probiotic implant can be made and good bacteria placed directly into the clean bowel at the end of the treatment.
Q: I am on my period. Should I come for my treatment?
If you have very strong period pains and you don’t feel well enough to come then try to avoid making your appointment on your period. But if it is not so bad, then it can actually be a very good time for a colonic as it will help release. So for most clients we say it is best to come even when on your period.
