Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as Colonic or Colon Irrigation, is a treatment that introduces warm water into the large intestine, releasing stagnant waste material, toxins and intestinal plaque. Colon hydrotherapy is useful for general detoxification and relief of toxin-related ailments or illnesses.
Symptoms of a Toxic Colon
If you suffer from any of the following issues, Colonics might be just what you are needing to regain vibrant health!
– Skin Disorders

The colon is the foundation of health in the body in many ways. The colon absorbs water and minerals from the food we digest and produces healthy flora, while at the same time, eliminating waste. It is roughly 5-6 feet long, 2.5 inches in diameter. It is made up of three muscle layers; nerves, blood vessels and mucous membrane lining.
When the small intestine eliminates into the large intestine, that waste is liquid. One of the functions of the colon is to absorb fluid so that it becomes a normal, solid stool.
A diet high in refined foods, excessive fats, low fibrous foods, dehydration and lack of exercise result in a build-up and lack of full, complete waste elimination. The colon becomes overloaded, sluggish and toxic because waste begins to accumulate in its folds and crevices. Compaction of waste in the colon creates a fertile breeding ground for a wide variety of harmful bacteria and yeast.
Toxic build up contains poisons that are slowly re-absorbed into the bloodstream. This depletes the body of vitality and energy resulting in a multitude of what appear to be unrelated symptoms. Colonics gently wash away this build-up of debris, mucus, yeast, parasites and harmful bacteria. Colonics restore the colon to health!!
Peristalsis of the Colon is the rhythmic muscle contraction that moves waste from one end of the colon to the other for elimination. When compacted, colon peristalsis is weakened and proper elimination is compromised. Gently bringing water into the colon and massage can help to restore proper nerve function and muscle tone helping restore proper elimination. Having a colonic is like taking your colon to the gym! It rebuilds weakened muscle!

Frequently Asked Questions
Is colon hydrotherapy embarrassing?
No mess, no fuss, no odour – in fact, a very relaxing experience. Your dignity is completely maintained with proper disposable gowns in a private room.
Is the procedure painful?
Rarely. Sometimes during the procedure, the muscles of the colon contract which feels like cramping or gas with pressure in the rectum. Most of the process is mild and gentle with a wonderfully light and empty feeling afterwards.
Will one cleansing completely empty the colon?
Almost never. Many of us have five or more kilos of impacted faecal material in our colon. This material is hardened and rubbery, and substantial work must be done to remove it.
Does colon hydrotherapy wash away all bacteria, even the good?
If your bowel is toxic, you have little or no beneficial intestinal flora to begin with. Years of improper eating, lack of exercise and poor elimination creates an imbalance in the intestinal environment, allowing the proliferation of undesirable bacteria. The normal intestinal flora actually benefits from colonics – they are replenished within a matter of days in their new cleaner environment. Cleansing the colon brings the acid-alkaline ratio of the colon back into balance so friendly bacteria thrive.
Will laxatives or enemas accomplish the same results?
When using an enema you are missing about four feet of the colon. During a colonic, the water goes all the way through five feet of the colon. Laxatives are irritants and leave behind impacted toxins and waste on the walls of the colon.
Is the procedure safe and sanitary?
With the use of high-tech disposable apparatus, the equipment is made ‘new’ every session. Our clinic maintains absolute hygienic safety, superior even to sterilisation.
Encompass Health Clinic believes strongly in the use of implants. An implant or infusion is usually a small amount of concentrated liquid solution inserted into the colon after a colon hydrotherapy session. The solution can be Probiotic, Chlorella or other nutritive combinations. Depending on the implant, such as probiotics, the solution is retained overnight or as long as the body allows it in the colon. The effect and benefits of an implant are much more potent than if ingested orally because they do not have to travel through the entire digestive tract to be absorbed into the body. Implants are directly absorbed into your muscle tissues, veins and nervous system.
Probiotic implants are effective at increasing the immune system. Approximately 70% of the body’s immune system resides in the intestinal tract. Implanting a healthy dose of friendly bacteria directly into the colon is a great way to bump up immunity.
Probiotic implants also balance the flora in the large intestine helping to squelch overgrowths of pathogens. For people with compromised immune systems or irregular bowels, such a IBS or chronic constipation, colonics with probiotic implants help balance the bowels and settle things down so that they can return to normal functioning.
Green Purge Implant
Chlorella contains an abundant of dietary fibre that will strengthen the intestinal lining to improve gastrointestinal movement, aggregate with the toxins to form a bulk for easier and regular bowel movement.
Chlorophyll constituent is the detoxified agent that binds to the toxins upon confronting along the way from colon to liver. It stimulates the enzyme glutathione-S-transferase production in the liver as shown in research studies.
Each gram contains one billion LS-66 Lactobacillus Sporogenesis that is heat and acid resistant sustaining in a gastric acid environment e.g. helping to improve good bowel flora, maintaining health of the gastrointestinal tract and boosting immunity.
Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF enhances the vitality of the lactobacillus LS-66 by four times, allowing them to proliferate quickly and become potently effective. It helps stimulate body-repairing mechanisms where the inflammation or ammonia permeability may occur in the mucosal lining of the bowel. It is full of amino acids to promote growth, boost immunity and help tissue healing.
Why we do not engage in Coffee Implants/Enema’s in our clinic………………
Coffee taken internally or rectally depletes your Hydrochloric Acid (HCL). To be healthy, you need good HCL. There are cofactors to HCL which are deeper within the intestinal track. Coffee enemas destroy HCL along with the other acids and weakens your digestion in the process. A coffee enema is very abrasive and can wear down your intestinal lining, colon and small intestinal track.
