By removing disease-causing toxins from your body, colon hydrotherapy may ease the following conditions:
Colon hydrotherapy assists the body in restoring and sustaining vibrant health. Our clinic specialises in colon hydrotherapy, an effective and natural detox therapy. Warm gravity fed filtered water is infused into the colon for up to 45 minutes using a safe, gentle internal bath.
A colonic helps stimulate (exercise) the colon’s natural peristalsis, which aids in the removal of waste and toxins that have accumulated in the large intestine. We maintain the best practice and highest standard of hygiene, which includes the use of disposable equipment.
The pencil thin tube which you insert 2½ cm, privately by yourself, provides a higher level of comfort than traditional machines. This is unique to the ‘LIBBE’, a FDA registered, state of the art, colon hydrotherapy system that we utilise.
Your certified therapist will assist you through the entire process, or if you prefer, you can choose to be left in complete solitude. A restful ambience created by soft lighting and music allows you to completely relax as you cleanse OR you can watch a dvd of your choice!
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 draping 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.
