Colon Irrigation

Colonic Irrigation, also known as Colon Irrigation, Colon Hydrotherapy, Colonic Hydrotherapy, Colon Lavage, High Colonic, Colema, or just simply a Colonic, involves inserting a tube into your bowel (via the anus) and slowly pumping in between 20 and 80 liters of warm, purified water a process that is similar to an enema, but using a great deal more water Often various minerals, herbs, and other materials, such as organic coffee, are added to and dissolved in this water before it is used.

Normal tap water is not used because it contains numerous undesirable chemicals and inorganic substances.

Special medically approved class II colon hydrotherapy devices are used and these include sanitary, disposable speculums or gravity-fed enema-like systems that are inserted into the rectum.
The process is repeated multiple times during the course of a treatment.

Advocates of Colon Cleansing claim that:

    • Colonic Irrigation of the lower bowels removes impacted encrustations of toxic debris from the colon, gradually eliminating the heavy, dense obstructions from the bowels and allowing them to restore their natural shape, function, and flexibility.

    • Colonic irrigation also triggers a complete purging of toxic bile from the liver, via the bile duct.

A Colema is a form of Colonic Irrigation that a person performs themselves using a bucket with an attached hose, while lying on a board positioned over a toilet, into which the bowel contents are released.
While Colonic Irrigation, colemas, and enemas have similarities, there are some significant differences between them, such as the depth of colon cleansing achieved, the volume of water used, and whether a helper or practitioner needs to be present to assist. For example, enemas commonly use about 2 liters of water, while deep Colonic Irrigation may use up to 80 liters of water.

Post Irrigation Effects

For about an hour after treatment, the person will probably need to stay close to a toilet, depending on how much waste got loosened up during the Colonic and how much water was used.
A typical treatment will probably require between 30 and 50 minutes, depending on your situation and the practitioner’s style.

During the treatment, you will be in a private room with just your therapist, who fully appreciates the sensitivity of the procedure and will do their best to help you feel at ease at all times. You will remain completely covered at all times. The treatment may start with some massaging to the abdomen. Next, a small tube will be inserted gently into the rectum.

This rubber tubing carries clean water in and waste out in a system controlled by gravity. The mess and odor that are often present after an enema do not occur with a Colonic, because everything exits the body quietly via the rubber hose.

The most common experience after a Colonic is that a person will feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well-being. Most people will probably experience several bowel movements within the next few hours, but there should not be any uncontrollable urgency or discomfort associated with these. Following this time, there should be a resumption of normal bowel movements with a larger and easier to move stool.
