1. IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY SAFE?
Yes. In fact with new colon therapy equipment, treatments are much safer than the common enema.
2. HOW DOES A COLON HYDROTHERAPY TREATMENT COMPARE TO AN ENEMA?
An enema only reaches the rectum and lower part of the colon, whereas with colon hydrotherapy, the entire length of the colon (the large intestinal tract approximately 5 to 5Â½ feet in length) is reached. Colon hydrotherapy is many more times effective. According to learned centenarian Dr. Norman Walker, â€œOne colon irrigation is equivalent to 30 enemas.
3. DO THE TREATMENTS HURT?
No. In fact many people report their colon hydrotherapy sessions as being both refreshing and relaxing.
4. HOW MUCH OF THE INTESTINES ARE CLEANSED DURING A COLON HYDROTHERAPY TREATMENT?
During a treatment it is possible for a professional colon therapist to cleanse the full length of the colon (large intestine). The small intestine are not specifically involved in a colon hydrotherapy treatment. The small intestine may be cleansed with the help of an oral (herb-based) intestinal cleanser.
5. SHOULD I SEE MY DOCTOR BEFORE MY FIRST COLON HYDROTHERAPY SESSION?
If you have a concern about your health or the appropriateness of colon hydrotherapy you should consult a doctor. If you are diagnosed with diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, severe hemorrhoids, rectal or intestinal tumors, you would not be a candidate for colon hydrotherapy treatments. Professionally administered colon hydrotherapy is safe, and generally if you are free of the above sited conditions, a medical examination prior to therapy, should not be necessary.
6. IS BACTERIAL OR VIRAL CONTAMINATION POSSIBLE FROM THE COLON HYDROTHERAPY EQUIPMENT?
Modern colon hydrotherapy machines utilize pre-sterilized, disposable hoses and speculums. These disposables are used only once during a single therapy session. Properly administered, there is absolutely no danger of contamination.
7. HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT TAKE?
Actual treatment time is about 45 minutes, but you should plan a total session visit of one hour in duration.
8. DOES A MENSTRUAL PERIOD AT THE TIME OF A COLON HYDROTHERAPY SESSION EFFECT TREATMENT?
No, in fact it’s usually a good time to receive a treatment, since your body is already cleansing. Your flow will not interfere with the success of the treatment.>
9. WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR A COLON HYDROTHERAPY CLEANSING?
Refrain from eating before the cleansing, be as relaxed as possible and maintain a positive, cheerful attitude.
10. WILL I EXPERIENCE ANY INTESTINAL DISCOMFORT OR FATIGUE AFTER THE CLEANSING?
Usually not, but since the cleansing will stir up a lot of old debris and toxins, you might experience some minor nausea or fatigue. If any discomfort occurs, it is recommended to rest and apply a warm heating pad to the abdomen. If you wish, a mild vegetable broth or peppermint tea is usually soothing at this time. Any discomfort will usually pass within 24 hours.
11. DO I NEED TO TAKE ACIDOPHILUS AFTER COLON CLEANSING TO REPLACE INTESTINAL FLORA WASHED OUT OF THE COLON?
While it is recommended to use acidophilus; it is not because the treatment washes out intestinal flora. Colon hydrotherapy does not wash out intestinal flora. Taking acidophilus subsequent to a colon cleansing is beneficial, because it helps to improve the bacterial balance in the colon. The best method is to implant the flora rectally the evening after your final therapy session, or if you prefer, to drink acidophilus for 2 weeks after your final therapy session.
12. CAN I WORK DIRECTLY AFTER HAVING A COLON HYDROTHERAPY SESSION?
Certainly. You can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement.
