Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colon irrigation, colonic irrigation, or simply “colonics“, is a complementary medical treatment that is meant to cleanse the colon by flushing it with water. Some people may choose to undergo colon hydrotherapy in an effort to improve their overall health and wellness, but there are some risks.
Due to the nature of the procedure, colonics due contain small, but potential risks:
- mild discomfort
- some dehydration
- possible electrolyte imbalances
We take great care to ensure you’re comfortable and that you stay hydrated. And it’s partly why we offer living foods counseling alongside colon hydrotherapy.
Why get a colonic?
Colon hydrotherapy can have a number of potential benefits, including improved digestion and bowel function, relief from constipation and bloating, and an overall feeling of increased energy and well-being. Some people also believe that colon hydrotherapy can help to remove toxins from the body and improve the immune system.
However, it is important to note that research is still being done on the benefits of colon hydrotherapy. Colon hydrotherapy is not recommended for everyone, so it is important to speak with your healthcare provider before undergoing colon hydrotherapy to determine if it is right for you.
