I am convinced digestion is the great secret of life. —Sydney Smith
Colon Hydrotherapy, also called colonic, is the safe, gentle infusion of warm filtered water in to the rectum using no chemicals or drugs. It is a restorative, painless procedure that is effective for removing colonic waste, encrusted matter, gas, mucous, toxins, and parasites from the large intestine (colon). By introducing pure, filtered, and temperature-regulated water into the colon, and gently massaging the abdomen, waste is loosened and broken down for easy evacuation. The process is then reversed, evacuating the water and waste and stimulating the body’s natural peristalsis. This process of introduction and evacuation is usually repeated several times during a therapeutic session.
Why Colon Hydrotherapy?
Death begins in the colon. —Elie Metchnikoff (Russian Nobel Prize Winning Biologist)
Imagine a garbage can full of food waste that sits around, and the “Why colon hydrotherapy?” question becomes simple to answer. You should be having 1-3 bowel movements a day. If you skip even one day of elimination, it is like missing trash day at your house 3 times. Piled up garbage attracts vermin and rodents. That is what happens in your gut when you're irregular; bad bacteria, yeast, viruses, and so on thrive. When ingested substances are allowed to sit, decay, and become toxic, these toxins can damage the surrounding organs, nerves, glands, and tissues, and damage the intestinal wall. This also creates a major decline of the absorption of nutrients, as the undigested food proteins re-enter and poison the blood stream, liver, tissues, and cells. The contamination and toxicity of the colon can have dramatic health effects ranging from allergies to major medical problems, including cancer, altered immunity, and even mental health issues that range from brain fog to bipolar disorder.

The Colon Hydrotherapy Process
A man has often more trouble to digest food than to get it. —Proverb
The process is simple, comfortable and is not painful. Purified water is introduced into the colon via a disposable speculum. Light abdominal massage dislodges toxic wastes, mucus, and fecal encrustation. This is gently eliminated through the waste tube. Repeated gentle fills and releases are administered during a session which lasts approximately 45 minutes. (For more information, read our Colon Hydrotherapy FAQ.)
