What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy is a process of gently infusing warm purified water into the colon to hydrate and cleanse the bowel of accumulated
waste and toxins. Helping the bowel to normalize and help keep the colon clean and healthy.
How long is a Colon Hydrotherapy session?
The first session will take approximately 1½ hours, as a client health history form is filled out and reviewed. All sessions thereafter
are catered to each individual, however, they usually last about 45 min. to 1 hour.
Will one session completely empty the colon?
It will usually take more, as the colon can be very dehydrated and encrusted with fecal plaque, so it may take a series of sessions to
hydrate and dislodge the accumulated waste. On average it can take a person anywhere from 5-15 sessions to cleanse the bowel. It is
suggested to book at least 2 or 3 cleanses on consecutive days as the colon may hold some of the water hydrating itself, and while
releasing some fecal matter, you may release more with the following sessions. Also you may want to schedule 4 or 5 cleanses on
consecutive days to cleanse more quickly as your colon is already hydrating and in a cleanse mode with the first few sessions.
How is a Colon Hydrotherapy session given?
Alongside a well trained Colon Hydrotherapist, sessions are given in a private setting with the client lying comfortably on a massage table.
A disposable speculum is then carefully self-inserted with sessions following as a series of inflows and outflows of gently infused purified water.
The waste then flows directly into the sewer system with no mess or odor.
What results can I expect from receiving Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy is a great way to assist the colon in relieving itself of impacted fecal matter and toxins. Individual results may vary as each
body is different. Some examples of results many clients have experienced are, less straining and cramping with bowel movements, clearer skin,
increased energy, and sleeping more soundly.
Are sessions painful?
Not usually. During a session, there is a series of inflows and outflows to eliminate. With eliminating comes contracting of the colon, much like a
regular bowel movement. Sometimes the contracting can be more pronounced as during a session you may eliminate several times. However, the cramping
does not last long and there is no long-term pain.
Will I lose weight?
Many clients have experienced weight loss in the form of pounds, due to ridding the body of accumulated waste as well as an increase in their metabolism
once the body has rid itself of the fecal matter. Eliminating the waste from the body can help the entire body function more efficiently. However, it is
not recommended for Colon Hydrotherapy to be used solely as a weight loss solution.
I am a woman. Can I do Colon Hydrotherapy while on my period?
Yes. You are only asked to use a tampon. While menstruating, your body is already in a form of detoxification mode, which can be a very beneficial time to cleanse.
Many woman have reported a decrease in menstrual discomfort while doing a cleanse during their period.
Will Colon Hydrotherapy affect the friendly bacteria in the colon?
Having excessive bowel movements can cause the friendly bacteria (Intestinal flora) to become imbalanced. It is important to restore the intestinal flora,
by taking a pro-biotic called acidophilus, following Colon Hydrotherapy sessions. We will recommend an incorporation into your diet to help your body replenish it.
How much water actually goes into the colon?
It takes approximately 72 ounces, or 2.5 liters to get around the full length of the colon, and it may take a few sessions to get to 72 ounces. At Internal Synergy
Inc. we have an ounce counter built in with the equipment that tells us how many ounces you are taking in with each inflow, to help us be aware of approximately how
far the water is in the colon.
Are there any health conditions to not receive Colon Hydrotherapy sessions?
There are some health conditions which can be a contraindication for Colon Hydrotherapy. If you have severe internal problems, please consult with your doctor before
beginning sessions or please contact the office for further information as we are trained to screen for such indications.
Do enemas work the same way?
Enemas can be highly habit forming and only use a single intake of water in the lower section of the colon, usually causing a single bowel movement. Enemas will
generally not get the water into the full length of the colon. With Colon Hydrotherapy we do several inflows and outflows of water, cleansing and hydrating the
entire colon, with you eliminating several times, helping the bowel to function more efficiently on its own, and is not habit forming.
How will I feel after a session?
The colon may hold some of the water following a session, so you may have another bowel movement. Following a cleanse it is common to feel tired and lethargic, but
generally clients find themselves feeling refreshed and lighter, with no excessive bowel movements.
How often is Colon Hydrotherapy needed?
Each body is different, so frequency of sessions will vary with each individual. We will be able to recommend a number of sessions once you have been assessed.
Remember that it took years to accumulate the waste and toxins in your body and it may take many sessions and diet and lifestyle changes to cleanse your body and
bring you to better health.
Is there anything I need to do before beginning Colon Hydrotherapy sessions?
Yes, there are some suggestions in slightly changing your diet and increasing your water and fiber intake, to help you receive a great cleanse. Please call the
office for more information, as suggestions are catered to each individual.
