What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy, also known as a colonic or colon irrigation, is a method of removing fecal matter and toxins from the colon (large intestine) without the use of drugs.
The colon is a 5 to 6 foot tube-like organ that is connected to the small intestine. Its job is to absorb any remaining water and electrolytes from the semi-solid remains of our diets and to form fecal matter. Through a wavelike motion called peristalsis, fecal matter and toxic waste material is evacuated through the anal cavity.
Colon hydrotherapy softens and loosens fecal matter by allowing a small amount of temperature and pressure controlled filtered water to flow into the colon. This helps to facilitate the evacuation of impacted fecal matter, retained gas, parasites and toxic material through the natural action of the colon. The inflow of a small amount of water and the release of waste may be repeated several times during a session.
