What to Expect During A Colon Hydrotherapy Session

Colon hydrotherapy is a method of cleansing the colon, or large intestine, to create optimal conditions for the body to heal itself and remain healthy. Colon hydrotherapy consists of flushing purified water (free from chemicals such as chlorine) through the intestines to flush out toxins, and to enable the bowels to work on their own again by stimulating the natural muscular and nerve reflexes within the large intestine. Colon hydrotherapy has also been demonstrated to remove traces of toxins from years of buildup. This is important because any accumulation of toxins contributes to conditions that are perfect for the onset of disease.

In some instances of hydrotherapy, water fortified with minerals and vitamins is used to replace these within the colon. The particular benefits of hydrotherapy depend on the person, but in many instances, people experience increased energy, a reduction in cravings for bad foods, alleviation of food allergies, and improved weight management. Hydrotherapy can also induce a bowel movement and may improve overall bowel movement regularity on a long-term basis when also accompanied by healthy lifestyle choices.

If you are interested in participating in a colon hydrotherapy or you want to know what to expect during a colon hydrotherapy session, there are a few things to bear in mind. Read on!

What to Expect During A Colon Hydrotherapy Session

First of all, find a licensed professional trained in colon hydrotherapy. Allow yourself at least an hour to arrive at the designated location and receive the procedure, which will probably last about 45 minutes.

During the session, purified water will be flushed into your colon through a machine utilizing a few different tubes and a holding tank. One tube will insert the water and another will remove the waste into the holding tank. This is a discreet process so you shouldn’t be able to see or smell the waste being removed. Water will be passed through your colon during multiple stages. Approximately 25 to 30 gallons of water will be used during your hydrotherapy session to dislodge any compacted fecal matter.

Colon hydrotherapy is not just a quick fix for optimal health but can greatly benefit anyone suffering from a sluggish colon. It actually stimulates the peristaltic action—the colon’s natural muscle contractions—to restore its ability to induce regular, healthy bowel movements. As these muscles are stimulated, they work to expel waste.

During the visit, some practitioners may also apply methods such as reflexology, massage, and relaxation techniques in addition to the hydrotherapy. Some practitioners may perform multiple passes to ensure enough of the accumulated waste has been removed. You may also expect the practitioner to ask how you are feeling throughout the procedure to make sure you are comfortable.

Results of Colon Hydrotherapy

Some healthcare providers believe one hydrotherapy session is equivalent to 20 to 30 bowel movements as a lot of waste and toxins may be removed. With its load lightened so to speak, the body can begin healing itself and restoring its normal level of digestive health. It’s wise to have a follow-up session a few months after the initial visit to check if all the dried waste is removed from your system. Approximately 3 visits a year should be more than sufficient.

Even if you consider yourself a healthy person with regular bowel movements, you could probably benefit from a hydrotherapy colon cleansing. Hydrotherapy can remove toxins not only from bad foods, but from prescription drugs, environmental poisons, alcohol, and other toxins that have possibly been in your system for years. If you are already in relatively good health, a colon hydrotherapy session can help maintain it. After all, can you have too much of good health?

Following hydrotherapy, it is wise to eat healthfully to restore any lost nutrients and to drink 64 oz. of water a day to replenish your body’s necessary moisture. Low impact exercise can also aid in strengthening the body’s natural immunity. By implementing these positive lifestyle changes, your body can start on a new road to optimal health. Now that you know what to expect during a colon hydrotherapy session, don’t be afraid to discover the benefits of cleansing your colon!
