...... then why not consider colon hydrotherapy! 

Do the colon treatments hurt?

Not at all, in fact many people report their colon hydrotherapy sessions as being both refreshing and relaxing.

 

Is colon hydrotherapy safe?

Yes.  At cleanseclinic you are supervised by a registered colon therapist.  There is no danger of perforation.

 

How does a colon hydrotherapy treatment compare to an enema?

One colon hydrotherapy treatment is equal to around 30 enemas. In addition, an enema only reaches the rectum and lower part of the colon - colon hydrotherapy can clean along the entire length of the large intestine.

 

Are there any contraindications to colon hydrotherapy?

Yes, pregnancy, inflammatory bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, severe hemorrhoids or fissures, rectal or intestinal tumors, recent colon surgery, intestinal perforation, abdominal surgery or hernia, liver cirrhosis, acute arterial hypertension, kidney failure.  Contact us if you would like to discuss your particular health concern.

 

Is bacterial or viral contamination possible from the colon hydrotherapy equipment?

At cleanseclinic, we have the latest colon therapy equipment using pre-sterilised, disposable hoses and speculums. These disposables are used only once during a single therapy session so there is absolutely no danger of contamination. Water administered also passes through three different filters, killing any bacteria or virus in the water.

 

How long does a treatment take?

Actual treatment time is about 45 minutes, but you should plan a total session visit of one hour in duration.

 

Can I have colon hydrotherapy whilst I am menstruating?

Yes, it will not interfere with the success of the treatment.  It's actually a very good time to have a colonic as your body is already in cleansing mode.

 

Will I experience any intestinal discomfort or fatigue after the cleansing?

Generally no however the cleansing will stir up a lot of old debris and toxins, so if you are toxic you may experience some minor nausea or fatigue. This will only be temporary and the best solution is to rest and have a warm herbal tea.

 

Do I need to take acidophilus after colon cleansing to replace intestinal flora washed out of the colon?

Colon hydrotherapy will wash out bad bacteria as well as some good bacteria however the good bacteria will re-establish quickly in a healthier colon.  Benefical bacteria will NOT breed in a toxic colon.  Probiotic supplementation in a toxic colon is expensive and ineffective as old mucous and faecal plaque need to be cleaned off the bowel walls before benefical bacteria can adhere to the bowel wall. 

 

Can I work directly after having a colon hydrotherapy session?

Certainly.  You can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement.

 

Is it embarrassing to get a colonic?

No, you will be alone in a private room with a trained Colon Hydrotherapist who fully appreciates the sensitivity of the colonic procedure and will help you to feel at ease.  During the procedure, rubber tubing carries the waste material out so there is no smell or mess.

 

Can colon hydrotherapy help with weight loss?

Definitely.  A classic sign of colon toxicity in men and women is a distended abdomen.  Fat and fluid accumulates in a place where we are most toxic such as the digestive tract.  The average person, who is at “normal” weight for their height and age, might have 4.5 to 11.5 kilograms of dried faecal matter in their colon.  The digestive tract is in fact the primary contributor in most weight challenges.

 

Do I need colon hydrotherapy treatments if I have regular bowel movements?

Most people don’t eliminate enough.  A person who has a well functioning colon will have 2 to 3 bowel movements per day, shortly after consuming a meal.  Elimination should be complete and easy, with no offensive odour.  Most people don’t fit the above description which means over many years, there will be a build-up of excess waste and toxic sludge in the large bowel.

 

How many colon hydrotherapy sessions does a person need?

The number of optimal sessions depend upon the condition and goal of the patient/client.  It is recommended that you have at least three sessions within a three week period in order to clean out the whole six feet of the large intestine.  In patients suffering from chronic conditions, you may want to continue on a weekly or fornightly basis to help with elimination, lymphatic drainage and detoxification

 

One session every three months is ideal for maintenance.  However some clients choose to have a session once a month for ongoing cleansing & toning.  

If you are doing a fast or detoxification program, it is highly recommended that you include colonic hydrotherapy as part of the regime.
