Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colon irrigation or colonic irrigation, is a complementary medical treatment that is meant to cleanse the colon by flushing it with water. The treatment is typically performed by a trained practitioner in a specialized clinic or office setting.
During a colonic treatment, a small tube is gently inserted into the rectum, and water is slowly introduced into the colon. The water helps to soften and loosen any waste or debris that may be present in the colon. The water is then drained from the colon, along with any waste that has been loosened.
The treatment is typically repeated several times during a single session, and the exact number of treatments may vary depending on the individual and the clinic. Some people may experience cramping or bloating during the treatment, but these effects should be temporary and should subside once the water has been drained from the colon.
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. However, it is important to check with your doctor before getting colon hydrotherapy.
