Colonic Hydrotherapy with Inner Health
This may sound silly but a healthy colon is the basis of a healthy body. Most of us don't realise how important a healthy colon is to our optimal well being. Many doctors used to focus on the importance of a healthy bowel but have regressed in the last few years. Colon health should be the primary concern in the quest for a healthy body. Food is the source of fuel, in today's lifestyle irregular eating of convenience foods which are full of toxins additives colourings and other unnecessary substances, lack of drinking water and stressful living will hinder the body's natural ability to eliminate waste efficiently.
Colonic hydrotherapy or irrigation is a process of removing faecal material from the colon walls diluting the bacteria and toxic concentrations from the large intestine. Benefits to the body have direct implications for our vibrant health and longevity. Therapeutic effects are improved muscle tone in the colon which leads to peristaltic action which in turn leads to the bodies ability to eliminate waste efficiently, furthermore colonic hydrotherapy may enhance the absorption of nutrients, whilst minimising the absorption of toxic waste material.
Colonic hydrotherapy is used to treat many diverse conditions- headaches, skin problems, me, fatigue depression and pmt being a few and thus transcends its popular conception as simply a cure for constipation. It is as effective for cleaning the colon as your toothbrush is to maintaining good dental hygiene.
What can you expect during a colon hydrotherapy session:
In short it's a relaxing, gentle experience and the highest quality products and sanitary standards are incorporated.
Filtered temperature regulated water is introduced into the colon through a disposable speculum after the waste material of the colon is softened and loosened it is evacuated through a flexible plastic hose that connects the speculum to the colon hydrotherapy device.
At Innerhealth we use a closed system. There are no offensive smells or mess to worry about. It is very safe as the water is introduced at low pressure so there is no danger of bowel perforation. The treatment usually lasts between 30 to 40 minutes. Your modesty is preserved at all times.
There are certain contra indications to colonic including some bowel conditions, pregnancy and heart problems. A detailed medical history is taken during the first consultation so necessary information is known.
Each case is individual and advice will be given at the first consultation. It varies from one to a number of treatments spread over a period of time, after which preventative or maintenance treatment may be considered.
