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 cleaning 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 created 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. Cleaning the colon brings the acid-alkaline ratio of the colon back into balance so friendly bacteria thrive.
Will laxatives or enemas accomplish the same result?
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. ‘Over the counter ’laxatives are irritants that 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. Encompass Health Clinic maintains hygienic safety, superior even to sterilization.
