BENEFITS OF COLON HYDRO-THERAPY (COLONICS)
Colon irrigation is very important during your cleanse. The cleansing process is accelerated by colon hydrotherapy. Colonics are a safe effective way of softening and releasing waste that has accumulated into your colon. Colon cleaning will remove the toxins and waste that are loosened during the fast. Also, colon cleansing will eliminate cleansing reactions. You don’t want to be sick or have cleansing reaction headaches and cleaning your colon will eliminate those reactions. Compression of neighboring organs disappears or attenuates when volume reduces in the colon. Relaxing effect on organs above intestines such as the liver, heart, and lungs. Sensation of lightness may be experienced.
Reduces pressure in the intra-abdominal area which improves venous return from lower extremities and pelvic zone. Relaxes pressure on the hips and lumbar column 70-178 and is beneficial to their mobility. Relaxes abdominal muscles from the action of water temperature and massage that accompany the colonic. Increases abdominal muscle tone due to reducing intestinal residues.
Stimulates peristaltic action of intestines restoring normal muscle tone and therefore removal of constipation. Potential to correct intestinal transit problems such as constipation and diarrhea without resorting to prescription drugs.
Sensation of well being due to the elimination of mucus, alimentary remainders not digested, gases and toxic bacteria. Relieves inflammation and edema due to elimination of irritating substances.
Expels parasites due to alternating water temperatures and complementary additives to colonic water such as garlic and other vermifuge (parasite killing) herbs. Decreases demineralization of body because it improves metabolism.
Relieves gynecological disorders such as cystitis and dysmenorrhea due to reduction of a prolapsed intestine. Reduces risk of complications after surgery because it reinforces natural immunity. We can suppose colon hydrotherapy improves functions of the large intestines, lymph and nervous system because a relation exists between them in the GI tract.
Reduces weight and slims due to activating elimination. Creates an increase in mental capacity and rejuvenation since it decreases the degenerative process, normal or accelerated, by removing toxic substances that affect biological aging.
Sessions are highly encouraged. We use only FDA approved Dotolo Equipment.

10 SPECIFIC BENEFITS ON COLON HYDROTHERAPY
- Cleansing, toning, exercising, and re-educating the colon
Apart from washing away the toxins, the water gently massages the bowel improving the circulation and bowel musculature. Colonics help the bowel restore its proper function. Strong, healthy bowel provides great prevention against problems and diseases associated with the lower digestive tract.
- Emptying colon pockets
Even with a regular bowel movement those little pockets in the colon wall are difficult to empty. If the bowel is sluggish and weak, diverticulosis can develop (pouches forming as a result muscle weakness). The waste can hide away in those pockets / pouches for years and can eventually lead to inflammation resulting in diverticulitis, which can be very serious. Any symptoms, such as cramping, bloating, flatulence, and irregular defecation are a sign that the colon is struggling and diverticula might be present. Colon hydrotherapy is very effective for the treatment of diverticulosis but once the diverticulosis progresses to diverticulitis, colonics should not be performed. So once again, colon hydrotherapy is a preventative tool and should be used in conjunction with dietary adjustments.
- Balancing colon microflora
The awareness of the importance of the bowel flora is ever-increasing. We now know that the health of the body and the colon is dependent upon a good bacterial equilibrium. Well-balanced bacterial flora is linked to the health of the immune system, so it does affect our health directly and indirectly. Colon hydrotherapy helps balance the bacterial flora ensuring that the colon environment is not too fermentative or too putrefactive.
- Improved bowel transit time (time it takes for a meal to travel through the digestive tract)
Ideally bowel transit time should be anything between 12 and 18 hours. This is hugely variable even within the same person and it depends on many factors including the type, volume and frequency of the food consumed, as well as hydration and exercise. Even the transit time is less than 12 hours, there is a risk of not absorbing nutrients from the food properly, which over time may lead to malnutrition. Having bowel movement less than once a day indicates the bowel may be sluggish (unless no or every little food has been consumed). Sluggish bowel will increase the levels of toxins being re-absorbed into the bloodstream leading to all sorts of problems over time, as discussed previously. You can test your bowel transit time by consuming some corn, beetroot, or small seeds, and making a note of the number of hours it takes for the food to appear in your stool.
- Increased absorption of nutrients through colon wall
Waste material stuck to the bowel wall can make the absorption of nutrients less efficient. As mentioned previously, even a healthy bowel movement does not necessarily guarantee a clean colon. Colon hydrotherapy helps improve nutrient absorption by gently removing the waste that in many cases had been accumulating for a long time.
- Decreased enterotoxin production in the colon
Poor bowel function can contribute to higher levels of enterotoxins, which are toxins produced by microorganisms that target the intestines. Enterotoxins are frequently cytotoxic, which means that they kill cells by altering the permeability of the intestinal wall. This further emphasises the importance of a well-balanced intestinal microflora and healthy bowel transit time, which can be aided by colonics.
- Decreased risk of colon-rectal cancer
Colo-rectal cancer starts typically in the lining of the bowel. Sluggish bowel function and exposure to toxic compounds can cause the lining to erode over time. Colonics are a great preventative tool, particularly when used in conjunction with a colon-friendly diet.
- Decreased congestion of other organs of elimination and the liver leading to improved energy levels and well-being
As mentioned previously, a clean, well-functioning bowel takes the pressure of the other organs of elimination (skin, lungs, urinary tract), as well as the liver. Low energy levels, as well as many health problems, are often associated with the body being overloaded with toxins. Therefore, good health of all of these organs is vital if your aim is optimal health and well-being.
- Improvement in conditions secondary to poor bowel function
Colonics can help with conditions that are associated with poor bowel function, such as skin problems (e.g. eczema), fatigue, headaches, etc. due to decreased toxicity levels.
- Helpful with weight loss / weight management
Colonics can indirectly help with weight management. Clogged-up digestive system means toxic body and that makes it very difficult to lose weight. The toxic strain put on the liver can lead to oestrogen dominance, encouraging weight gain. Moreover, bacterial imbalance in the gut interferes with proper elimination of oestrogen from the body via the digestive tract.
It is important to remember that colon hydrotherapy is not an ultimate panacea but another tool that can help you improve your health. Particularly when used alongside appropriate dietary and lifestyle changes, colonics can help prevent many health problems, as well as boost your energy and well-being.
