It is important to be aware of these potential risks and side effects before having colon hydrotherapy.
If you are considering colon hydrotherapy, it is always a good idea to consult with a healthcare provider and a qualified and reputable colon hydrotherapy practitioner who can provide personalized advice and guidance on the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
