Colon Hydrotherapy / Colon Cleanse
Colon Hydrotherapy or Cleansing is the best and most effective way to detox the body, considering main seat of waste accumulation is colon. If a person’s colon is not cleansed fully on daily basis due to inactivity or sluggishness, toxins from there travel throughout the body with common blood flow, causing various illnesses like constipation, acidity, bloated abdomen, burping, water retention, fatigue, lethargy, weight gain, disturbed sleep, bad breath, body odor etc.
Colon cleansing is also called Colema or Colonic.
There are two ways of treating constipation or gastrointestinal issues in colon cleansing process, one is for temporary and immediate relief called Enema, and other which is long term but a permanent and the most effective solution, that is Colon Hydrotherapy or Colonic Irrigation.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a complete wash of your large intestines. It encourages restoration of the colon’s natural function by enhancing peristalsis. Colon Hydrotherapy cures chronic health conditions caused by the sluggishness of the intestines, when combined with Ayurvedic, Homeopathic and Yoga treatments along with dietary and lifestyle advice.
Colonics are also done before colonoscopy (study of colon).
How Colon Therapy is Done?
In colon cleansing process, multi-filtered and ozonized water, at body temperature is infused via anal opening. Thereafter released, washing away old faecal matter and toxins which get softened with warm water and are mobilized with external abdominal massage. This process is repeated few times. Normally three sessions are required to achieve, initial cleansing in 1st session and complete cleansing of old hardened faecal deposits and toxins, plastered on colonic walls and its bends in 2nd and 3rd session.
Negligence of Colon Health Care
A clean, well-functioning and detoxed colon is extremely important for one’s total wellbeing. We all know the importance of a healthy diet. But that’s only the start. Its correct absorption and elimination are equally important, which takes place effectively in a healthy colon only.
Unfortunately, ‘Colon Health Care’ has been greatly neglected in our country. Considering our poor dietary habits of refined, processed, fried foods and our stressful, sedentary lifestyles, colon function gets affected.
Over a period of time, the colon gets clogged up with old waste matter and loses its ability and strength to process vital nutrients, absorb water and expel faeces leading to constipation, intestinal gas, piles, bad breath and body odor.
In fact, many people are constipated without even recognizing the condition for years. Ignorance and delay in its treatment leads to other serious long term problems like piles, acidity, weight gain, migraine, poor sleep, low energy etc.
Many experts believe an average person has 3 to 10 Kgs of accumulated waste matter in the colon.
While, not a weight loss procedure, it is interesting to note that many people who complete a series of colon cleanses have reported significant and healthy weight loss as it rids you of retained water and gas reducing the bloating and belly size instantly.
Besides, once system is detoxed, metabolism increases, that helps in quick reduction of weight.
Detox & Rejuvenate Your Digestive System
Digestive system is first to go for a toss, amongst all human functions, under pressure of any kind. Colonic (Bowel) movement gets sluggish, because old faecal matter is held up in colonic tract, clogging its walls and pockets.
As a result its natural peristalsis (wave like motion that pushes waste and faeces down to rectum) slows down affecting daily expulsion of stools.
Causative Factors are:
- Bad Food Habits, lacking necessary fiber
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Untimely and late eating
- Smoking, Drinking and much Non Veg food
- Insufficient, Disturbed & late sleep
- Anxiety, worry, emotional imbalances
- Lack of hydration.
All this leads to retention of toxins and faeces which causes bloating, constipation, acidity, flatulence etc.
Toxicity from colon then, spreads throughout the body via blood flow and leads to lethargy, fatigue, headaches, bad breath, body odor, poor sleep, weight gain, lowered immunity.
Good news is… You can get rid of all these problems by just 3 (40 minutes) sessions of COLON HYDROTHERAPY done over 3-6 days, combined with homeopathic medicines, ayurvedic hot oil massages, diet and lifestyle advice. This will give you a clean, clear colon, free of all old deposits, faeces, and toxins, with healthier diet and lifestyle habits, on a new healthy ground.
Thereafter, you can learn to remove all those causative factors from your life, restore good health with natural daily Colonic (bowel) movement, maintain it with doctor’s consultation and regular follow ups:
You will feel immediate improvement in:

Enema is a procedure to expel stools accumulated in rectum (last 8 inches) of colon, in severe constipation cases, where stools are hard and dry, painful and harmful to expel by self, giving immediate but temporary relief.
Lukewarm water infusion is given in rectal canal with a 1 cm wide tube. 100 to 300 ml water is infused. Client has to hold up this water inside rectum by sitting up or walking around or downward dog position for few minutes to soften the stools and enable them to flush out by sitting on the toilet pot.
Colon Hydrotherapy vs enema
Colon is like internal purification plant of the body. All cells and tissues, organs of detoxification, liver, skin, lungs rely on colon so that they can remove toxins from the body.
When colon is well cleansed, its capacity to absorb the nutrients like water, electrolytes, minerals, vitamins from processed and digested foods, is increased. This helps well nourished blood to carry all these micro nutrients to different parts of body.
Average person has 3 to 7 kg of old faecal matter in colon. Even if one has bowel movement daily, good amount of waste is left behind as accumulation of mucus, hard faeces toxins that creates a breeding ground for bacteria, virus, yeast, parasites which putrify and cause gas.
Colon passage gets bloated with gas and does not allow waste to travel downward, peristalsis gets slowed due to plastered walls, person can’t detoxify and cleanse as a result.
Over time as toxicity increases it leads to poor health overall.
Colon cleansing can help to reset our health by improving absorption of nutrients from good food we consume else it just goes out unabsorbed with waste matter.
Auto intoxication happens that can cause hormonal imbalance, fatigue, weight gain, constipation, insomnia, candida and many other problems.
Some points to note:
Contrary to what modern medical practitioners think who are non-believer in goodness of alternative health care methods without medicines and surgeries, that uses, only nature’s and body’s own resources like 5 elements of naturopathy; there is no harmful effect of colon cleansing, during or after. It’s simply, introducing water through a passage provided by nature which we use daily to pass stools, sometimes very large and dry stools when constipated.
There is no chance of any injury, or infection because high standards of hygiene is used with disposable kits, flow of water is very thin, gradual and gentle, its non invasive.
Speculum is introduced gently with a lubricated gel. So, no tear can happen as opening is already there. So, there is zero harm.
Process is of 45 minutes. Done by experienced and skilled experts supervised by qualified doctors. (Ayurvedic, Naturopath and Homeopath who are medical degree holder and believers in alternative healthcare).
Probiotic is given just after session to instantly build up healthy bacteria (lactus bacilli) which may have got washed out with water during the process.
Meal of yogurt is given as 1st meal to further build the good bacteria followed by light meal to keep body free from toxic foods like meat, heavy spices, sugary and fried food for 1 week preferably. Though there are no strict regimes to be followed. But it’s just to facilitate detoxification process.
We don’t use any herbal ingredients or coffee etc in colon hydrotherapy procedure. These are done in herbal enemas for various conditions.
