Colon Hydrotherapy

water_smallThis is a safe and gentle process involving warm, purified water being introduced into the colon (also known as the large intestine or bowel) where it cleanses and tonifies your system. It is amongst the oldest recorded medical treatments and records have been found from 1500 BCE. Did you know that digestive complaints account for up to a third of all GP consultations in the UK? Constipation leads to higher levels of toxic substances produced both in the bowel by bacterial fermentation and also in the body (particularly the blood, lymph and liver), which then in turn affects the other organs of elimination (lungs, skin, kidneys/bladder).

Did you know that irritable bowel disorders occur in 50-80% of women with chronic pelvic pain?

Some of the disorders associated with poor elimination include: skin eruptions (acne, eczema, psoriasis), congestion/Sinusitis, poor concentration, lethargy, depression, poor memory, digestive disorders (eg bloating, wind, ‘leaky gut’, inflammatory bowel disorders, IBS, haemorrhoids, constipation, diarrhoea), Rheumatoid Arthritis, allergies, bad breath, pelvic pain, PMS, menstrual problems. Did you know that irritable bowel disorders occur in 50-80% of women with chronic pelvic pain?

The most obvious challenges treated are those relating to the digestive system (eg constipation, diarrhoea, IBS, Colitis, bloating, Candida, flatulence). However there are other disorders not directly connected with the colon that benefit from colon therapy, and these include: headaches/migraines, sinus problems, allergies, weight problems, poor circulation, skin disorders (eg eczema, acne, psoriasis), depression, poor memory, and low immune system function.

Some of colon therapy’s benefits include:

  • Cleansing, toning and re-educating the colon to work more effectively and efficiently
  • Balancing the bowel’s microflora (good bacteria)
  • Making and absorbing Vitamin K, the B vitamins and Serotonin (the ‘feel good’ neurotransmitter)
  • Increasing the absorption of nutrients through the wall of the colon
  • Reducing toxins (eg Candida and other parasites) from re-entering the bloodstream
  • Reducing the transit time of food
  • Improving liver function (the main organ of detoxification)
  • Improving mood
  • Increasing energy and wellbeing

Appointments last one hour although for the first consultation you are asked to arrive ten to fifteen minutes early in order to complete a health questionnaire.
