Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon cleansing involves flushing the colon with fluids to remove waste. It’s a practice that’s been around since ancient times, and the benefits are based on the premise that digestive waste can be a toxin to the body. Generally, a colonic hygienist performs the colon cleanse while you rest on a table. It involves sending approximately 60 liters of fluid through a tube into the rectum. Toxins are then expelled through a different tube, and the process is repeated. Practitioners of colon cleansing say you can reap numerous benefits by removing the toxins from your digestive system. They say it can lead to weight loss, better digestion, increased energy, and clearer thinking but most of these claims lack scientific support. In 2016, a small pilot study noted improvement in gastrointestinal symptoms after colonic irrigation in patients with irritable bowel syndrome. Colon cleansing should be approached with caution, as it can potentially lead to colon damage and side effects including bacterial imbalance and infection, bowel perforation, dehydration, and electrolyte imbalance.
