Many of us living in the U.S. are now choosing to take self-responsibility for health and well-being. This has led to a renewal of interest in holistic methods. Colon Hydrotherapy is one of these methods.
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle cleansing method of removing waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural elimination. Colon Hydrotherapy is often referred to as colon irrigation, colon therapy or colonics.
By improving the function of the colon, the entire body should be able to function more efficiently. Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure, but a valuable procedure to help the body with colon related conditions and issues.
Why is cleansing necessary?
The fact is, not all that goes in comes out. As the waste builds, the muscles that help make up the colon become weaker, causing more build up until the colon becomes distorted, inflamed, and diseased. If the colon is not functioning properly, the waste backs up and will effect other organs.
“All disease and illness begins in the colon.”
Dr. Norman Walker, author of Colon Health

What can I expect at a Colon Hydrotherapy Session?
The session begins by filling out a client information form and discussion of your health history. An explanation of the colonic irrigation equipment and the session itself is given as well as how the sterile speculum (which lets water flow into the colon), is inserted comfortably by the client in privacy. A series of water fills, releases, helps to stimulate the expansion and contraction of the muscular walls of the colon. The colon waste, which is observed for abnormal formation, is seen through the equipment viewing tube. Most individuals find the process to be very calming and can easily relax. A warm private room with soothing music helps the relaxation process. The session lasts for about 45 minutes, but plan to spend about 1 1/2 hours at the first session. Learn more at What to Expect
What should I do to prepare for my session?
Refrain from eating two hours before your scheduled appointment; this may help you to be more comfortable during your session. See First Session Information
How will this procedure help my colon?
Besides removing toxic material, colon therapy helps to exercise the colon muscles. This helps to speed up the transit time of the digestion process and improve peristalsis. It stimulates reflex points in the colon. Every organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points. A colon therapy treatment stimulates these points. This then affects the corresponding body parts, organs, tissues, glands. It also hydrates our body, which means, our cells are absorbing this water, which helps to dilute toxins. In addition, nutrition absorption is improved.
What kind of Colon Hydrotherapy equipment is used?
The Water Lily is FDA approved for colon hydrotherapy. It uses sterile, disposable rectal speculum tubes. Linens are sterilized or disposable. Cleaners are FDA approved and all equipment and the facilities are disinfected after each client session.
* No diagnosis or prescription is made to the client at any time. Used in conjunction with a nutritional program, it allows balance in the system to occur in a natural, safe, effective way. The goal is to provide a safe space for the client’s process to emerge while practicing respect at all times. A series of 3 – 12 sessions often yields remarkable results.
It is estimated that there are thousands of colon hydrotherapists in the United States assisting hundreds of thousands of clients to enjoy the benefits of colon hydrotherapy. Many of these clients claim that due to colon hydrotherapy, they have been able to live their lives without drugs, tranquilizers, muscle relaxants, and pain pills. In a society where Eastern and Western medicine combines to give us the best of both worlds, the acceptance of colon hydrotherapy is continuing to grow with impressive results much as Massage Therapy has in the holistic marketplace.
