The colon (also known as the large intestine or bowel) carries out many functions which are essential for keeping us healthy. As part of the digestive process it absorbs water soluble nutrients and vitamins, and eliminates waste
from the body.

The delicate workings of the colon and the bacteria inside can easily be disturbed by stress, pollution, poor diet, some drugs, smoking and exposure to toxic substances.

Although you may go to the toilet regularly, some waste can collect in little pockets lining the colon and does not pass through you. The build up of waste also weakens the muscle of the colon causing it to become congested. The result is a build up of toxins which make you feel ill.

PREPARATION

We recommend that you eat and drink lightly for 2 hours before treatment as the abdomen will be massaged to assist the cleansing process.

CONSULTATION

The first appointment lasts up to 1½ hours during which the therapist will take detailed notes.  The therapist will take detailed notes of your lifestyle and any symptoms or conditions from which you suffer. They will also explain the procedure in detail.

Subsequent appointments last 1 hour.

THE PROCEDURE

A small sterile speculum is inserted into your rectum. This is attached to a tube, which carries the water into and the waste out of your colon. The tube is totally enclosed so there is no odour. The therapist is able to examine the waste being flushed out through a window in the tube.

Warm filtered water is introduced under gentle gravitational pressure. This, together with gentle massage techniques, helps the faeces and impacted waste to soften and flow out of the colon.

You will be asked to remove your lower garments and will be provided with a gown to wear. We ensure that your modesty is maintained at all times.

AFTER THE TREATMENT

Once the therapy has completed, you can carry on your normal daily routine. You may feel the benefits of the procedure immediately, which can include a feeling of lightness and well-being. You may need to go to the toilet a little more frequently than usual, but you won’t experience any uncontrollable urgency.

The colon is lined with bacteria which help keep it in good health. During the therapy some of these bacteria are washed out along with the waste. Many more will remain deep in the colon lining and soon regenerate. Depending on your existing conditions, and the symptoms you have been experiencing, your therapist may recommend you take supplements to replenish the bacteria that have been lost.
