FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS COLONIC HYDROTHERAPY?
Also known as Colonic Irrigation, Colonic Lavage. It is a safe, effective method for
cleaning the colon of old waste material, by gentle flushing the bowel walls with warm
filtered water. This is a painless odour-less process with no unwanted after effect. Colonic treatment stimulates bowel
activity by using the body's natural nerve and muscular response mechanisms,
so it is essentially a natural treatment.
ARE THERE ANY CIRCUMSTANCES IN WHICH COLONICS IN NOT RECOMMENDED?
YES, if the client has:
Severe Cardiac disease
Uncontrolled Blood Pressure
Aneurysm, Severe anaemia
Carcinoma, Pregnancy, Liver disease,
Abdominal hernia or Recent abdominal operation (6 month)
Severe Prostate condition.
Consultation is done prior to a colonic.
IS COLONIC SAFE?
Yes. Individually packed disposable speculums are used at the clinic.
The Colon hydrotherapy courses are all postgraduate, the student must be either
conventionally trained in medecine eg: doctor or nurse or be a graduate from a
recognised Body Complementary medicine course (which includes in-depth anatomy & physiology).
There is also no need for concern regarding too much pressure being used as the
filtered warm water flows through a small tube at a low pressure and is no bigger
than your little finger. Here at the Clinic we provide free Probiotic as a standard
practice after every treatment, to help the body repopulate to optimum levels of good bacteria after your colonic.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Human bodies vary greatly and depending on your symptoms and the length of time you have had them.
The first one will be unnerving as it is a new process so often not as fulfilling as the second or third treatment.
However, your therapist will be able to give you a better indication after full consultation and the first treatment.
Deposits built up over a lifetime cannot be shifted with one irrigation only, although some people can
get what they need out of 1 treatment, others may require more.
Once your bowels are cleared it is a good idea to have one or two treatment per year to maintain inner
cleanliness and a good elimination but again this will vary from client to client.
