Colon Hydrotherapy has been referred to by many other terms such as “Colonic”, “Colonic Irrigation”, “Colon Cleansing” and or “Lavage” and is a safe and effective method of gently washing the large intestine with purified water. The main purpose is to wash out the contents of the large bowel using water or other medication directed through the abdominal passage. This breaks down faecal waste that has accumulated over time within the intestines.

The use of Colon Hydrotherapy dates back to over three thousand years ago and is based on ancient Egyptian and Greek beliefs. An ancient Egyptian medical document (Ebers papyrus) of 1500 BC described many benefits of Colon Cleansing. In ancient times, Colon Cleansing was performed in a river using a hallow reed that induced water flow into the rectum.

Since those ancient times, Colon Hydrotherapy equipment and methods of practice have improved. Colon Hydrotherapist training is now standardised through accredited organisations and the added security of the use regulated of Colon Hydrotherapy devices allows greater efficacy.

Despite difficulties in the early 1900’s, the value of Colon Hydrotherapy continued to be recognised by some medical doctors. Three names which deserve to be mentioned here are: Dr. James A. Wiltsie M.D., Dr. Joseph Waddington M.D., and Dr. John H. Kellogg M.D.

In the early 1900’s, Dr. John H. Kellogg used surgery on just twenty patients from the total of forty thousand of his patients with gastrointestinal disease. The remaining patients were treated successfully as a result of a combination of bowel cleansing, diet and exercise. His work was reported in The Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) in the 1917 edition.

Dr. Waddington’s work “Scientific Intestinal Irrigation and Adjuvant Therapy”, reported that abnormal functioning of the intestinal canal leads to ill-health especially chronic disease. He argued that “the restoration of physiological intestinal elimination is often the important preliminary step to eventual restoration of health in general”.

Dr. Wiltsie’s work provides us with knowledge on normal and abnormal physiology of the colon and how we have not kept pace with the pathology and better management of a healthy colon. As we continue to assume that the colon can look after itself, we are basically ignorant of this most important source of ill-health affecting the whole body.

During the Colon Hydrotherapy process, water is introduced in the colon which is retained in the intestine for 10 – 15 minutes. This water is then flushed out and the same process is repeated until the entire colon is cleared. When this waste matter is cleared, health and vitality can dramatically improve. Significant improvement is achieved when Colon Hydrotherapy is done in conjunction with an increase in fluid intake. Exercise and a high fibre diet with little animal protein also helps. If you have constipation please consider making these life style changes in order to achieve the benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy.

Some forms of Colon Hydrotherapy use tubes to inject water (mixed with herbs or other liquids), into the colon via the rectum using special equipment. People practicing Colon Hydrotherapy believe that accumulations of putrefied (decayed) faeces line the walls of the large intestine and these accumulations harbour parasites or pathogenic gut flora causing nonspecific symptoms and ill-health.

Colonic ChartDigestive System

Why is the human gut widely referred to as the “root of health and disease”?

The colon has been referred to as the “sewage” system of the body. It is the place where we store the waste material that most of us would rather not think about and unfortunately most of us don’t until our health becomes poor or we feel constipated, have diarrhoea or become seriously ill.

The colon (large intestine/bowel) is 5-6 feet long and plays a major role in the outlook of our overall health. The prolonged storage of waste can result in toxic seepage through the colon wall and into our bloodstream. Since every tissue in the body is fed by the bloodstream, a vicious cycle can occur allowing disease proliferation and increased the burden on eliminative organs such as the kidneys.

Everything that you eat or drink comes in contact with the walls of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and has the potential to affect GI health.  When these substances or their by-products are toxic, they damage the intestinal tissues, as well as the nerves and glands in and around the GI tract. Toxins can then be absorbed through the walls into the blood and lymph glands and ultimately transferred to other body tissues and organs. In addition, many dietary and lifestyle habits can result in a sluggish colon. This means that waste products are not moving smoothly out of the body; the slower movement or “transit time” means that there is more fermentation and putrefaction of undigested food by bacteria and yeast. These microbes produce toxic waste in the form of acids and gasses, which in turn cause inflammation and damage to intestinal tissues. Studies have shown that these toxic substances can promote abnormal brain function, as well as cognitive, mood, and behavioural problems.

Why do you need to clean out your colon? 

Colon Hydrotherapy is an integral part of a successful total body detoxification program as well as for maintenance of a vibrant and lasting sense of wellness.

Many nutritionally oriented physicians require their patients to undergo Colon Hydrotherapy as a requirement for any treatment. This is an integral part of the healing process and patients are strongly recommended to undergo a series of treatments.

Colon Hydrotherapy is never a treatment that is done just once. For any lasting benefit to be obtained, a series of treatments over several weeks is necessary especially when muscular retraining is an important goal.

The most obvious reasons are:

(1) To get your gastrointestinal (GI) tract working properly.
(2) To remove a major source of toxicity for the body.

When the colon is not functioning well, health and vitality tend to decline, and susceptibility to disease increases. Approximately 1 in 3 people have chronically “sluggish” colon or constipation. Constipation mainly refers to any one or combination of three interrelated bowel situations:

  • Incomplete emptying, such that some waste material remains in the colon.
  • Reduced frequency of movements, such that the colon carries more toxic waste for extended periods.
  • Not being able to evacuate the bowels at all.

All three situations may result in the build-up of toxic materials in the intestines and re-absorption of toxins into the bloodstream. This puts a strain on many body systems and results in fatigue, weakened immunity, cognitive challenges, and other signs of declining health.

What does Colon Hydrotherapy accomplish?

Each session hydrates the intestinal tract while also breaking up the impacted and dehydrated fecal, mucoid, and other waste materials that layer the walls of the intestine. By washing these materials out of the intestines, your body is more capable of disposing of waste products of digestion; also, further build-up of toxic materials is prevented. At the same time, your body’s assimilation of nutrients is enhanced and liver health and energy levels may dramatically improve.

Colon Hydrotherapy also exercises the muscles in the wall colon to improve peristalsis and effective elimination, thus retraining these muscles to function properly.  Finally, colon cleansing can help promote healthy immunity. About 60 percent of the immune system is found in the GI tract, which makes sense, since microbes are most likely to enter the body through the mucus membranes of the GI tract (as well as the lungs). By removing a huge source of toxicity, colon hydrotherapy enables your body to thrive and maintain good health for the indefinite future.

What are the medicinal benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy is often recommended due to the following:

  • Hydrate your body.
  • Remove waste from the gut.
  • Stimulate peristalsis (rhythmic movements of the intestine, to ensure optimal GI health).
  • Reposition and reshape the intestines.
  • Rehabilitate the nerves, muscles, glands, circulatory and immune systems that are integral to the GI system.

But the most important benefit for many people is that they feel better and enjoy a better quality of life.  After a few sessions, people frequently report feeling “lighter” and having a feeling of well-being in the belly.  In addition to relieving digestive discomfort, they also note improvement in many other health problems.

Who benefits from Colon Hydrotherapy?

Most of the people who use Colon Hydrotherapy have frequent digestive problems or digestive discomfort. Signs and symptoms of intestinal distress may include constipation (sluggish bowels), carbohydrate indigestion, diarrhoea, gas and bloating, haemorrhoids, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, diverticulosis, colitis, intestinal toxaemia, parasites, skin conditions such as psoriasis, shingles, and eczema, inability to lose weight, and scar tissue and adhesions from surgery.

Other groups who are excellent candidates for Colon Hydrotherapy include the following:

  • Individuals who have chronic sinus and respiratory problems.
  • People motivated to relieve chronic pain (e.g., abdominal pain, continuous headaches and migraines, back or shoulder pain, aching joints, gout).
  • Athletes seeking to improve metabolic efficiency.
  • People with compromised or disordered immunity (e.g., lupus, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, arthritis, cancer, chronic fatigue, Epstein-Barre, candida, or other infections).
  • People who are working on emotional issues which they feel may be linked to their digestive problems.
  • Patients who are pre- and post-surgery or barium x-ray.
  • Anyone who is in a period of life-style change or who desires to use the Colon Hydrotherapy for general cleansing, health promotion, or as a preventive measure.

How many Colon Hydrotherapy treatments will I need and how often?

The number of treatments varies with individual cases and in most people release of older fecal matter will only begin after six sessions.

During the intensive phase of detoxification, it is recommended that you undergo a Colon Hydrotherapy session at least once a week. However having the therapy twice a week is ideal during the first few weeks. (Note: Even if you are only able to do one Colon Hydrotherapy session a month, you will begin to see a benefit.).

It is preferable not to do Colon Hydrotherapy on successive days, skipping at least one day in between treatments. For best results, in most cases, the minimum number of recommended treatments is 12, though we may recommend that you undergo up to 16 sessions over a 3-4 month period. Our experience indicates that if you are able to undergo at least 16 sessions, you are likely to see a major release of toxic matter from the colon, along with major improvements in your overall digestive health.

What is Colon Hydrotherapy Program?

Colon Hydrotherapy Program is a comprehensive colon and total body cleanse program as well as digestive care guidance. The basic program consists of 16 Colon Hydrotherapy treatment sessions, which includes teaching and consultation.  The first appointment is one hour thirty minutes (1 hour 30 minutes) long and consists of health evaluation and assessment, as well as teaching of Colon Hydrotherapy procedure and therapeutic effects, cleansing program with digestive care. All other treatments and consultation appointments are approximately one hour and fifteen minutes (1 hour 15 minutes) long.

Clinical Trials have shown that multiple sessions Colon Hydrotherapy is helpful for existing Chronic & other Medical Conditions. Multiple sessions are recommended to attain best results. We can offer you a package deal for this and other treatments at Salt Cave Halotherapy & Wellness Centre. Please ask us about best deal rate.

What should I expect during a session?

When you come in, you will lie in a comfortable horizontal position. The Colon Hydrotherapist will insert disposable tubing and speculum in your rectum attached with Colonic Hydrotherapy device with filling and emptying cycles performed as part of the Colonic Hydrotherapy procedure. The Colon Hydrotherapy device, facilitates water running very slowly into your colon. As water begins to move through the colon, the therapist decides when the fluid is released and flows out through an illuminated glass viewing tube. Periodically, your abdominal area is gently massaged. The procedure varies according to the individual’s needs. To ensure the highest degree of sanitation, your Colon Hydrotherapist will use disposable tubing and speculum (a medical tool for investigating body cavities), as well as ultra-filtered water.

The first session entails a partial cleanse of the colon. During the session, there is a medical history and physical assessment done, as well as essential teaching by Colon Hydrotherapist.

Preparing for Your Colon Hydrotherapy Session

Colon Hydrotherapy is very safe; however, there is one side effect, which is at times good bacteria are washed out with the bad bacteria. Therefore, you must be taking a probiotic supplement while undergoing Colon Hydrotherapy. Colon Hydrotherapy may be contraindicated for certain medical conditions (e.g., diverticulosis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease), depending on the severity of the condition. Disease severity would have to be evaluated by Colonic Therapist before deciding if you’re a suitable candidate for Colon Hydrotherapy. If you have a diagnosis of diverticulitis, severe hemorrhoids, or rectal or intestinal tumors, Colon Hydrotherapy is contraindicated.

It is best to eat only a small amount of food at least 2 hours before undergoing Colon Hydrotherapy; please avoid food within two hours of the treatment. It is best not to have a full stomach when undergoing the treatment. You may drink a small amount of liquid two hours prior to the session; however, try to avoid liquids after that time. Also, it is important that your bowel function is not completely shut down when starting the therapy. So, for those individuals with severe constipation, please start your herbal cleanse and fibre a few days prior to your first treatment to improve response.

Remember that you will be in the hands of professionals, and that this is a very safe and gentle process.

Supplements for Colon Hydrotherapy

Most patients will be on individualized supplement regimens that may be modified somewhat to improve the effectiveness of the Colon Hydrotherapy sessions. Those supplements that are particularly important while undergoing Colon Hydrotherapy include:

  • Probiotics: We recommend a high-potency, recolonizing formula that provides a minimum of 30 to 60 billion beneficial micro-organisms per day.
  • Vitamin C: It is recommended that all patients take the maximum dose of vitamin C that results in loose stools, then to pull back from this dose slightly so that they have a daily soft bowel movement.  This is especially important for patients with severe constipation.
  • Magnesium: Additional magnesium improves colon muscle function. We recommend different magnesium supplements for different digestive health needs, working up the dose to bowel tolerance as described in further reading. For further reading please CLICK LINK to read: Magnesium The Ultimate Guide By Dr Carolyn Dean.
  • Iodine: Iodine deficiency is a lack of trace element iodine, an essential nutrient in the diet. Deficiency of iodine may result in a condition known as goiter. If Iodine deficiency is left untreated, it may lead to congenital hypothyroidism, which results in developmental delays and other health problems. Iodine deficiency is an important public health issue as it is a preventable cause of intellectual disability. For further reading please CLICK LINK to read: The Guide To Supplementing With Iodine By Stephanie Burst.
  • Intestinal cleansers and natural Laxatives: There are several formulas we recommend that patients begin prior to and continue during their series of colonics. These will be reviewed by either the physician or Colon Hydrotherapist.
  • Intestinal cleansing fibres: A variety of fibre formulas are used to assist with colon cleansing ranging from mild bulking agents to more powerful granular formulas that provide a more aggressive scraping effect against the intestinal walls.

Colon Hydrotherapy Plus Therapeutic Retention Enemas:

Colon Hydrotherapy Plus Therapeutic Retention Enemas are given at the end of a normal Colon Hydrotherapy session.  Therapeutic retention enemas are administered through the Colon Hydrotherapy equipment, retained in colon for 10-15 minutes and are after flushed out through the Colon Hydrotherapy equipment making the experience effective and mess free. There are two types of Therapeutic Retention Enemas which we perform at our centre: Coffee Enema & Probiotics Enema.

  • Coffee EnemaCoffee enemas reduce toxicity in the body, help eliminate parasites and Candida, improve digestion, ease bloating, help with depression and increase energy and clarity. They have also been used by the Gerson Therapy along with diet as a treatment protocol for cancer. The retention of the coffee enema is important, as the coffee soaks in the Sigmoid colon; the end part of the colon that is directly connected to the liver through the circulatory system. The coffee contains alkaloids which have a detoxifying effect on the liver, stimulating release of bile and toxins, and thus making the liver more effective; sort of like cleaning out a clogged filter in the vacuum cleaner allowing better suction capabilities.The coffee retention is then followed by an additional Colon Hydrotherapy sessions to clear out any remaining faecal matter and released bile.
  • Probiotics EnemaBalanced gut flora is linked to strong immunity, lower serum cholesterol, improved lactose tolerance, proper nutrient absorption and a reduction in risk of colon cancer, irritable bowel and inflammatory bowel disease. There are a few things one can do to maintain healthy gut flora balance; refrain from refined sugar and refined carbohydrates (as this feeds Candida and other bacteria that cause disease), eat plenty of raw and fermented foods, and using probiotics. However oral probiotics are not very effective in rebalancing the colon, as they are the small intestine, so it is important to rebalance the colon at the source. This is where our probiotic enemas comes in. We take brief history to determine the balance in the gut, and then based on assessment, we put the proper amount of probiotics in the enemas, and administer it after the final Colon Hydrotherapy session. Two weeks later we asses client with outcome from probiotic enema to confirm the balance of the gut flora.

After Treatment Care:

Please abstain from alcohol, rich and spicy foods for at least 24 hours after your treatment.

One can anticipate feeling more peaceful, lighter, cleaner and more energized after a Colon Hydrotherapy.

On occasion, if there has been a longstanding condition of constipation or several health problems, a slight headache or fatigue may be experienced with the first or second Colon Hydrotherapy. If this is so, a short rest will help restore one’s equilibrium. In some cases you may feel slightly bloated for a few hours after the Colon Hydrotherapy, as the untrapped gas makes its way to the exit. If this is the case, have a cup of peppermint tea and lie down with hot water bottle for a while. In very rare cases tiredness persists for a few days, as the body continues to detoxify itself. In these cases, we recommend having another Colon Hydrotherapy treatment to accelerate the process.

Since the colon has been cleared of solid matter, it may take on the average one to four days before it fills up again and normal bowel movements are resumed.

Some water is absorbed through the colon wall during a Colon Hydrotherapy, and one may notice an increased need to urinate for a few hours afterwards. This beneficial effect of flushing the kidneys may also be enhanced by drinking a few glassed of water with the juice of half of a lemon added to each glass.

“Beauty Breakfast” for energy and regular elimination. This Breakfast has been traditionally used by those wanting to have a steady supply of energy in the morning, good digestion, regular elimination and beautiful skin. In the evening soak some oats in yogurt and citrus juice and leave on the counter to let ferment overnight. Eat in the morning on its own or with some fresh fruit.

Tips and Links: 

• Stay away from any processed carbs (sugar, white rice, flour etc) and eat whole grains, however prepare them in the following way. Soak grains, pulses (beans) and nuts (grains with a teaspoon of vinegar, pulses and nuts with some salt) the night before you want to eat them. This neutralizes enzyme inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols (tannins), and goitrogens and encourages the production of beneficial enzymes, increases the amounts of vitamins, helps break down gluten, supports digestion, makes protein more ready for absorption, prevents mineral deficiencies and helps neutralize toxins in the colon and keep the colon clean.

• Eat traditional cold pressed oils and fats such as olive oil, coconut oil, butter, hemp oil flaxseed etc. Stay away from processed vegetable oils made under high temperatures with solvents such as margarine and canola oil. When eating vegetable oils such as flaxseed keep in the fridge and use by one month of opening. Rancid fats are as harmful as processed fats.

• Practice oil pulling. Put a large teaspoon of coconut oil in your mouth and swish for 20 min once to two times a day. This will bring nutrition to your teeth and gums and also pull toxins from the body. A side benefit is beautiful white teeth.
