Colon hydrotherapy or Colonics are the therapeutic use of water internally in the colon.
Colon hydrotherapy is done with machine that is known as a closed system. This is the administration of water into the colon through a speculum inserted in the rectum.
A closed system delivers double, sometimes triple filtered water at a controlled temperature and flow rate through a tube, to slowly fill the colon. Once the colon is filled, the flow of water is stopped to allow for the contraction and release in the colon thereby allowing fecal matter to flow back into the tube and into a drain.
Colon Hydrotherapy Benefits:
- Removes waste from the colon that has accumulated over time and helps prevent constipation, and improves overall health.
- The buildup of fecal matter in the colon may prevent the absorption of water and nutrients, leading to constipation.
- Eliminates harmful colon bacteria and decreases the growth of yeast in the colon.
- Decreases autointoxication or stagnant toxins from getting through the colon wall and into the bloodstream.
