What Is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy, or colonics, is a centuries-old therapy using filtered water to flush accumulated fecal waste, harmful bacteria, intestinal parasites, gas and mucus from the colon. It is a safe and gentle yet powerful way to cleanse the body, and to make all body systems and organs more efficient.

The colon, or large intestine, is the end portion of the human digestive tract (food carrying passageway extending from the mouth to the anus). The colon is approximately 5 feet long and 2 inches in diameter. Its major function is to eliminate waste and conserve water.

What It Does:

Colon hydrotherapy is a holistic method used to remove waste material, especially that which has remained in the colon for some time (i.e. impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, parasites, worms, etc.) pose several problems. Firstly, this material is quite toxic (poisonous). These poisons can re-enter and circulate in the bloodstream making us feel ill, tired or weak. Secondly, impacted materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-produced vitamins. Finally, a build-up of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements and constipation, which are the result of these disorders.
