About Colon Hydrotherapy

“Colon Hydrotherapy – A bath on the insides”

Do you suffer from bloating, constipation, dark circles under the eyes, tiredness, fatigue, indigestion, headaches, or nausea? These are all symptoms of an underactive and clogged bowel.

With our modern lifestyles and unhealthy diets, our digestive systems tend to become sluggish, affecting the elimination of waste which can lead to problems such as constipation, IBS, extreme fatigue and premature ageing.

Colon Hydrotherapy is ideal for cleansing the colon, flushing out the impacted matter, toxic wastes, yeasts and other undesirables that build up over time. In doing so, your internal system is instantly hydrated increasing bowel mobility and improving nutrient absorption, as well as replacing gut bacteria, contributing to liver, blood and kidney cleansing, raising energy levels, managing the symptoms of IBS and restoring bowel regularity.

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and effective method of cleansing the colon by repeated gentle flushing with warm filtered water under very low pressure with a colon hydrotherapy or colonic irrigation machine.

Cocoon Wellness Spa uses a closed system for colon hydrotherapy. The treatment is gentle and involves your expert therapist massaging your stomach. It is relaxing and you will feel completely cleansed after
the treatment. Results include dewy skin, better fitting clothes and a greater sense of wellbeing.

Colon Hydrotherapy Benefits:

Improved Digestive System

Cleansing the colon will mean that waste will pass through easily, and for better nutrient absorption. 

Improves the regularity of passing waste and resolves constipation

Constipation can be painful and uncomfortable. This is caused by dehyration or a sluggish digestive system. Leaving waste in the body increases the chance of inflammation and disease. Straining and pushing increases the chance of hemorrhoids and bleeding from fizzures.

Weight loss

As Colon hydrotherapy has an immediate loss of waste, you can lose up to a few kg in just 1 session if you are severely constipated or a lot of built up waste. There can be many kilos of old and decaying fecal matter in the body. Also the session will remove gasses that lead to the appearance of bloating. Many of our clients say immediately after the session, they feel lighter and have a flat stomach. This can last days or weeks if you look after your diet and lifestyle, drink a lot of water and exercise.

Improves Energy and Overall Wellness 

Colon hydrotherapy is an excellent way to reduce and release toxins from the body as it expels long term waste from the colon. Then the body has more opportunity to increase absorption of vitamins and nutrients for overall wellness. Our clients say that the day after treatment, they feel more relaxed, lighter, have more energy, improved concentration and feeling alert, and better sleep. 

Reduces inflammation and colon cancer

Cleansing the colon from built up toxins from the feacal matter will reduce the chance that the cells will be toxic, creating inflammation and cancer. Reducing the waste in the system will reduce the chances of cancer, polyps and cysts.

The overall benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy include: 

  • Relief from constipation and bloating
  • Improved circulation
  • Balancing the body and the bloods PH balance
  • Clearer mental alertness
  • Better quality of sleep

Before your session:

It’s a good idea to eat and drink light meals a few days before your treatment. Raw fruit, freshly extracted juices, salads, and pureed soup are recommended. Do not eat a heavy meal before your session.

3 days prior to your appointment:

Take 35 grams of psyllium fibre per day, 1 tablespoon, 20 minutes prior to each meal.
8 – 12 glasses of water per day.
Eat as much fruit and vegetables as possible to loosen things up in the colon.
No solid meals, poultry or carbohydrates for the week when colon treatment is on.
Take 2 tablets of probiotics per day, one tablet before meal.

During the Colon Hydrotherapy session:

Allow for at least 60 minutes for your session. The actual procedure takes 30 minutes. A disposable speculum is gently introduced and only a controlled amount of water is allowed to enter the colon at any time. During the process of your treatment, your technician will apply special massage strokes to encourage the release of impacted fecal matter.

What to expect from your Colon Hydrotherapy Session:

While some people report increased energy and digestion, many also find that their weight is reduced and they sleep better, with less migraines. It is generally expected that you will see immediate, positive results even after one treatment.

Some common reactions after colon therapy session:

Light headed
Exhausted
Nausea

Post treatment care of Colon Hydrotherapy

As soon as your session is finished, you may resume your daily routine. Sometimes, the session may trigger several subsequent bowel movements for the next few hours, but there won’t be any uncontrollable urgency or discomfort. You may feel light-headed or chilled after the session, but again it’s all temporary and part of the cleansing process.

Several treatments may be necessary to attain best results, as the stored toxic waste in our bowels has been there for a long time. An assessment will be done after each treatment to determine your requirements. It is important to follow through with good health and lifestyle choices, including a high quality probiotic culture to repropagate the bowel flora.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What is the difference between a colon cleanse and enema?

The colon is approximately five to six feet long. To clean out the lower part of the colon, enemas will suffice. But, that leaves about four feet of colon! Laxatives interfere with other digestive processes higher up in the Alimentary Tract and are not only irritants to the body, but the colon can become rather dependent upon them; when used, a thin, watery substance is produced that goes through the colon leaving behind impacted toxins and waste.

What can I expect after my colon hydrotherapy session?

Most people will feel lighter and less bloated immediately. Many people will feel an abundance of energy. You may feel the need to use the bathroom more often that day.

How often will I need to have colon hydrotherapy?

Most doctors will prescribe a series of cleanses from 3 to 12 times over a period of time, depending on your condition. We offer a variety of packages to give our patients discounts on multiple sessions. A great way to maintain a healthy system is to have at least 1-3 colon cleanses with every change of season.

This does not sound like fun. Honestly, how bad is it?

Great question. When you come in we will help you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. You are never exposed to smells or mess with our closed system. Our trained colon hydrotherapist will assist you through the entire session. Most people review the procedure to be comfortable and relaxing. There should be no pain involved; only a slight discomfort like gas or constipation as the impacted colon contracts to eliminate. After this, sessions can be quite relaxing.
