FAQs

 Most Frequently Asked Questions   Concerning  Colon Hydrotherapy   

  1. Is it safe?
    Yes. The colonic equipment used today is FDA approved. All   tubing is disposable and the water filtration system is state of   the art, removing all toxins, microorganisms and chlorine from   the water. 
  2. Does it hurt?
    No. In fact most people are very pleasantly surprised at how   relaxing and comfortable a colonic treatment is. The only   discomfort one may experience during a colonic is some   crampiness which is the result of the peristaltic action   (muscular contractions) of the colon. This is a healthy sign   telling us that the colon is working, doing its job to move   waste out of the body. 
  3. How does a colon hydrotherapy treatment compare with an enema?
    An enema is a home administered treatment, useful when you   cannot get in for a colonic. The water from an enema directly   reaches and cleanses the lowest part (6-8 inches) of the large   intestine (colon). A colon hydrotherapy session allows water to   reach and clean the entire 5-6 feet of the colon. According to   Dr. Norman Walker, one of the original Medical advocates of   colon cleansing, “One colonic irrigation is equivalent to 30   enemas.” 
  4. What does it mean to have a toxic colon?                                                               Auto   intoxication is a process where the body literally poisons   itself on its own toxic juices. If the colon is toxic, this can   contribute to many different problems than can be associated   with colon toxicity. Some possible signs are: bloating, gas,   constipation, diarrhea, IBS, leaky gut syndrome, colitis,   fatigue, depression, poor memory, weakened immune system, skin   problems, lower back pain, excess weight, bad breath, coated   tongue and body odor. 
  5. How much of the intestines are actually cleansed during a colon   hydrotherapy session?
    During a treatment it is possible for a professional colon   therapist to cleanse the entire length of the colon. The small   intestine is not directly cleansed by the water of a colonic   because of the presence of the ileo-cecal valve. The ileo-cecal   valve is a one-way valve which does not allow water or waste to   pass from the large intestine back to the small intestine.   Although we do find that some waste from the small intestine   will release during a colonic, to specifically address cleansing   the small intestine an oral form of cleansing, using herbs, is   necessary. Talk to us for more details. 
  6. Should I see my doctor before my first colon hydrotherapy session   and are there any contra-indications for doing treatments?
    If you have a concern about your health or the appropriateness   of colon hydrotherapy you should consult a doctor.

  7. What about the insertion of the tubing (speculum)? Does that hurt   and how far into the body does it go?
    Unlike many years ago when colon therapists attempted to insert   the tubing very deep or high into the colon, hence the name   “High Colonics”, today the rounded, lubricated tube is gently   inserted only 1-2 inches into the colon. Clients do their own   insertion and the therapist will then set it in just the right   place and connect all the tubes for an easy, effective   treatment.
    And no, the insertion doesn’t hurt although it may feel a bit   odd the first time
  8. Is there any possibility of bacterial or viral contamination from   prior use of the colon hydrotherapy machine or tubing?
    I use the modern Dotolo Toxygen hydrotherapy instrument   which utilizes pre-sterilized, disposable tubing and speculums.   These disposables are used only once during a single therapy   session. Properly administered, there is absolutely no danger of   contamination. This has a state-of the-art water filtration   system that removes particles, microbes, bacteria, viruses and   any chemicals using carbon and ultraviolet light. Following a   colon hydrotherapy session, the Dotolo Toxygen instrument  is   high temperature cleaned and disinfected with hospital grade   germicidal solution after each use.
  9. How about the treatment itself? What is it like and what will I   feel?
    During the treatment you are lying comfortably on a plush   massage table, propped up and covered at all times. A   “slow-fill” technique is used which allows the colon to   thoroughly soak and saturate with pure water, this allows the   removal of encrusted fecal matter to be gradual, comfortable and   effective. The water coming into the body enters so gently that   you can hardly feel it. During the fill cycle you may feel a   little rumbling in your tummy or gassy or crampy or you may feel   relaxed and peaceful. Many of our clients report that the most   relaxing time of their entire week is when they come in for   their colonic. Whatever you are feeling during your treatment is   perfect. Any sensations are signs that the water is doing its   job of loosening and softening accumulated waste in the colon.   Remember, the colon is a muscular system and moves waste out of   the body by a series of muscular contractions known as   peristaltic action. When you feel crampy during a colonic   treatment your colon is getting ready to move waste out of the   body. The crampiness may feel a bit uncomfortable but it is a   sign that the colon is doing exactly what we want it to do and   that is to move waste out.
    People with a history of constipation have, for whatever reason,   lost some or all of their peristaltic action. Our job as   therapists is to help the muscular system of the colon regain   its ability to contract which makes for regular, easy bowel   movements. 
  10. Is it possible to rebuild my colon after years of constipation and   laxative use so that I can go to the bathroom regularly again?
    First of all, regular, long term use of laxatives can destroy   the nerve endings that innervate the colon allowing for strong   peristaltic action and easy bowel movements. Laxatives (even   herbal laxatives like Cascara Sagrada, Senna, Turkey Rhubarb or   various forms of Aloe) are all irritants to the colon. The colon   perceives them as irritants and will force contractions of the   colon to get rid of the irritant and at the same time and almost   by default move stool out of the body. When the nerve endings   are destroyed through long term use of laxatives the colon   becomes exhausted and sluggish and often requires greater   potency and frequency of laxatives to get the bowels moving. Our   goal is to help break the cycle of laxative dependency and allow   a person to move their bowels without the use of laxatives.
    To accomplish this challenging goal we need to come at it from a   number of different angles. Your willingness to work together   with us on a consistent basis will pay off.

    The Five Essential Steps to Regaining Healthy Bowel Function   are:
    a. Colonics- the first step is to thoroughly clean   out the old waste of the colon. With old debris still present it   is difficult for the colon to work at its maximum efficiency. Be   prepared to do a series of 12 or more colonics. Regular colonics   over time helps to rebuild the peristaltic action of the colon.
    b. Restore a healthy environment in the colon. We   may suggest the use of a probiotic (friendly bacteria).
    c. Diet- We will address diet and its vital   importance to colon health and assess how your diet is either   helping or hurting your progress.
    d. Exercise- exercise increases metabolism. A   sluggish colon can be a sign of a slowed down metabolism. We   will not only look at the possible causes of a sluggish   metabolism but ways to help increase its efficiency. Exercise is   one important step.
    e. Emotions and Stress- these two factors alone   play a crucial role in the health and vitality of your whole   being let alone the health and vitality of your colon. The colon   represents the ability to “Let Go”. Or, “What are you holding on   to”? For those who are willing to look at these aspects of   themselves this can make a huge difference! 
  11. How do I prepare for a Colonic?
    The simplest way is to refrain from eating or drinking for two   hours prior to your treatment. For those who want to do a more   involved preparation, others options such as juicing, fasting or   an herbal cleansing program can be helpful. Anything you do to   put your body in a cleansing mode can be beneficial but not   essential. If you haven’t begun any special preparation and are   confused as to where to start then just do the simple   preparation and come in for your first colonic and we will   discuss the many options for deeper cleansing.
    Other than that, keep breathing, relax as best you can and keep   a positive, upbeat attitude. Remember, coming in for your first   colonic can be a little scary. We all went through that. You   will do great and remember the gift you are offering to your   body is profound! 
  12. What are some other ways to cleanse?
    We always recommend starting your cleansing program with   cleaning the colon through colonics.  cleanses to support detoxifying and rebuilding the   liver. 
  13. How long do treatments take?
    Actual treatment time can be 30-40 minutes usually   averaging 30 minutes. Total treatment time with changing and   finishing in the bathroom is one hour. 
  14. Does having a menstrual period at the time of a colonic session have   any adverse effect on the treatment?
    No, in fact it is usually an excellent time to receive a   treatment, since your body is already cleansing. Your flow will   not interfere with the success of the treatment. Often during a   colonic the flow will become lighter. Wear a pad.
  15. What are the specific benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy?
    The top four are:
    a- It aids in the release of toxins and fecal matter from   the gastrointestinal tract
    b- Cleanses the blood
    c- Jump starts and empowers the immune system
    d- Helps to restore the proper ph balance in the colon   and the body Some   other reported benefits  with periodic colon hydrotherapy are: improved overall bowel function, better   nutrient absorption, improved digestion, purification of the   liver, reduction of bloating and intestinal gases, more energy,   relief of toxic headaches, smoother, tighter skin, reduction of   skin rashes/acne, better poster, weight control, clearer mind   and overall feeling of improved health and vitality.


  1. Do I need to take acidophilus or any other form of good bacteria   after a colon cleansing because intestinal flora (the good   stuff) has been washed out of the colon?
    Prior to treatments our bodies are generally so toxic that it is   questionable how much good bacteria has survived and is present   in the gut.
    We usually recommend taking some form of “friendly bacteria”   following a treatment but not because the treatment washes out   intestinal flora. Colon hydrotherapy treatments do not wash out   intestinal flora.  When colon hydrotherapy washes the bad   bacteria, it allows the colon to balance the good bacteria.
  2. Will I experience any intestinal discomfort or fatigue after my   treatment?
    Usually not, but since the cleansing will stir up a lot of old   waste and toxins, you might experience some minor symptoms of   residual cleansing such as fatigue, nausea, headache, cramps,   bloating, etc. For some, the treatment may trigger subsequent   bowel movement over the next 24 hours, but there should not be   any uncontrollable urgency or discomfort. Generally people find   the procedure quite gentle and comfortable, and frequently   report feeling a sense of lightness, clarity, renewed energy,   and well being. If you can rest for a short while after a   colonic that is recommended but most people feel fine and   continue on with their day.  
  3. Can I go to work after a colonic?
    Yes you can absolutely go to work after a colonic.  
  4. How do I best support my colonic treatments?
    Follow any recommendations we might have for you regarding   specific supplements or dietary suggestions. Also drink lots of   filtered, purified water and avoid processed foods and drink. 
  5. How many sessions will it take to clean the colon?
    This will depend on the client. For the first time client it is   estimated that 6 sessions will be recommended and not unusual to   take up to 12 or more depending on the client. There are many   years of deposit build up, it can not be removed in one session.   It is recommended to receive 3 consecutive sessions for optimal   cleansing, but this will depend on the individual   recommendations I might have for you regarding specific   supplements or dietary suggestions. Also drink lots of filtered,   purified water and avoid processed foods and drink.
  6. What results can I expect from Colon Hydrotherapy?
    Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure or treatment for disease, but   can be a valuable procedure to assist the body in the   detoxification process. The following are goals for colon   hydrotherapy: Hydrate the body, soften and remove hardened toxic   fecal matter, stimulate and strengthen the nerves, muscles,   glands, circulatory and immune components of the digestive   system, stimulate peristalsis (the natural wavelike muscular   movement that moves the waste through the intestines.
