Colon hydrotherapy is used to cleanse the bowel. The patient lies on his or her back in a comfortable position while water at a pleasantly warm temperature passes from the colon machine into the lower bowel via a plastic tube.
The therapist constantly alters the pressure and temperature of the water entering the bowel, to increase the effect. The patient’s stomach area is massaged during the session, which also encourages the cleansing process and stimulates the lymph flow from the intestine walls.
The entire process is painless and odourless.
This is a detoxification method which treats the whole person, since a psychological release of tension seems to occur during colon hydrotherapy treatment: the patient can clear out a lot of unwanted waste which has collected in the psyche over the years.
The healthy gut Approximately 80% of our immune system is located in our colon. This is why a healthy digestive tract is so important for our wellbeing. As a result, in particular, of the eating choices of western societies, environmental pollution and medications, most people’s colons contain impacted waste matter and harbor bacterial overgrowth (dysbiosis) with putrefied matter and yeast imbalances.
Combined with bad eating habits, this creates gases and toxins in the colon, which leads to weakness and also reduced functioning of the immune system.
But the colon rarely causes pain when it is sick because it does not have the necessary sensory nerve endings. For this reason it is important to pay attention to this vital organ before serious illness occurs.
