What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy is a procedure in which pure, temperature-controlled water flows into the colon to stimulate elimination, detoxification, and support the digestive system. The small amount of water flowing into the colon gently stimulates the colon’s natural peristaltic action to release softened waste. This process is repeated multiple times during the 30–45-minute session.
Is Colon Hydrotherapy Safe?
Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe process for colon cleansing and is an accepted procedure for the preparation of a colonoscopy. Our Libbe open system is an FDA registered Class II medical device for colon cleansing. The procedure is always carried out by our board certified I-ACT colon hydrotherapist. We strictly use disposable, single use rectal tubes. Our facility and machine are cleaned regularly and held to the highest standards of sanitation. During the session, most upper clothing is kept on and you will always be draped to ensure modesty. A client’s dignity and privacy are of the utmost importance!
We are not allowed to make any claims of benefits. However, colon hydrotherapy has been indicated in cases of acute fecal impaction, constipation, colitis, diarrhea, diverticulosis, parasitic infections. It also shows benefits in prevention, bowel training, detoxing the body, improved digestion, decrease in bloating and gas, boosted immune system and preparation for surgery or diagnostic tests. Many experts believe that over 80% of Americans suffer from some sort of digestive disease. The saying “all disease begins in the gut” (Hippocrates) can be related to our sluggish bowels and pounds of old, toxic fecal matter. It has been reported that adults carry as much as 5-20 pounds of extra toxic fecal matter, which contributes greatly to our current gastrointestinal health crisis.
