All about colon hydrotherapy (video)

Did you know that colon hydrotherapy…

  • has been practised for thousands of years (it dates right back to Egyptian times when they used hollowed out reeds.  Think about it.)
  • is a completely natural and safe treatment that’s proven to deliver a host of health benefits
  • when combined with a healthy lifestyle, helps your body eliminate retained wastes that may be damaging to health
  • is a great way to take care of your overall health and wellbeing; you don’t have to be suffering with IBS, constipation, painful bloating or any other bowel irritations (although it’s great for those too!)
  • and is the ultimate way to spring clean your system?

The list doesn’t end there. There are so many benefits to talk about.

Setting the record straight about colon hydrotherapy

Unfortunately, colon hydrotherapy doesn’t always get good press. There are numerous myths and downright untruths floating around the Internet, which leads to a lot of confusion and misunderstanding.

For this reason, I decided to dedicate my most recent Facebook Live event to the topic of colon hydrotherapy.  On 6th July, I teamed up with two friends and fellow colon hydrotherapists, Gillian Edwards and Katherine Brooke-MacKenzie, to go over some of the common misconceptions, debunk a few myths and set straight some (often crazy) misunderstandings surrounding colon hydrotherapy and provide some insight into just how powerful it is.

The three of us, combined, have over 40 years of experience and tens of thousands of colon hydrotherapy treatments under our belts so we’re well placed to explain why it won’t wash out all the nutrients, make you walk bow-legged or leave you in excruciating pain.

Let’s talk colon hydrotherapy

During a lively and informative hour of discussion, we talked about the history of colon hydrotherapy, how the treatment is carried out, the equipment used, the conditions it can help with as well as some of the contra-indications (it is not suitable for people who are pregnant or have acute diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, chronic kidney disease, severe haemorrhoids or high blood pressure). 

We also wanted to use the opportunity to explain how colon hydrotherapy can dramatically reduce symptoms of IBS, especially uncomfortable bloating, painful trapped gases and constipation.  

We answered lots of your questions during the live event, including:

  • Is a colon hydrotherapy treatment the same as an enema? 
  • How much water is used during treatment? 
  • Is it painful? 
  • How long does a treatment take? 
  • Why do you use herbal, probiotic and coffee implants?  
  • Can I have the treatment if I’m pregnant? 
  • Does it help reduce IBS symptoms?

It was a very engaging hour that was watched by the general public and other colon hydrotherapists alike.  And, we hope that we have gone some way towards putting people’s minds at ease regarding this safe and beneficial treatment.

My next Facebook Live event will take place on Tuesday 3rd August at 8 pm, where I will be talking all about probiotics. Find out what they are, what they do and why we need them today, more than we ever have. You will be able to
