Colonics is safe and effective. It is almost a sort of cleanse such as the Hit the Reset cleanse or any other colon cleanse. It uses water and that is it. When this is done, water is gently infused into the colon through the anus. No chemicals or any drugs are used during this process.
Keep in mind that flora in the gut is essential for the best health. This organ is generally overlooked upon until it starts not working as it should. The colon helps keep the body functioning at the highest possible efficiency. When there are issues with the colon the body may encounter some diseases and grogginess.
Does Colonics Detox the Body?
The colon can become distressed due to poor diet or in general, a person’s daily eating habits. This could include any excess animal proteins that are found in meats. Any processed foods, fats, and sugars.
Imagine this, the laundry is being done but dirty clothes are added before the first set can be clean. This is what happens to the colon if it feels distressed. This is how many toxins end up in the bloodstream which makes the body feel groggy, tired, and sluggish.
Does Colon Hydrotherapy Hurt?
What is colon hydrotherapy and does it hurt? As stated earlier, colon hydrotherapy is the use of water to cleanse the colon through the anus. This process is pain-free and some people even report it as relaxing. The only time a person may notice any discomfort would be when the tube is inserted into the anus. This is particularly true if the colon is clogged. When the procedure is done, a nurse will be massaging the abdomen to help clear any build up in the colon.
Is It Safe?
Colon hydrotherapy is a very safe treatment or procedure when it is performed by qualified individuals. It should only be done by nurses who have experience and are experts in the area. The nurses have been trained to use the end of the line technology and how to properly care for the devices.
When a device is done being used the trained nurses know how to properly clean and sterilize it so that it is clean for the next person. If the nurses are trained and everything is sterilized, there is no need for any concern. Plus, the tube that is inserted into the anus is always a new tube for every individual.

Are Probiotics Lost?
Probiotics are the friendly bacteria that help a colon. Keep in mind these probiotics reproduce rapidly and if the colon is clean, the more helpful bacteria are able to grow. Plus, this bacterium is going to be attached to the lining of the colon very tightly. It is impossible to lose the body’s concentration of probiotics through colon hydrotherapy.
Are Laxatives the Same as Colon Hydrotherapy?
Laxatives are unsafe for use over long periods of time and should not be used for a colon cleanse. When the laxative starts to work and it flushes out the body, it may cause inflammation in the colon. When this happens, it will make it easier for toxins as well as waste to produce faster.
Should You Be Embarrassed?
A person should not be embarrassed to have this procedure done. It is a clean procedure that is performed by professionals in a private area.
How often Should Colon Hydrotherapy Be Done?
It is up to an individual how many times they want their colon to be cleansed. Many people who are participating in a detox program are recommended to have their colon flushed through a colonic about once a week, for about 10 weeks. However, it is a personal preference and it all depends on a person’s lifestyle as to how much they need. Talk to a professional and get their opinion, they will be able to better help because they will be familiar with your lifestyle and habits.
It’s important to drink plenty of liquids before and after your cleanse. Alkaline water, fresh organic vegetable/fruit juice/smoothie, or Kombucha are always good choices. You can add a multi-collagen to your drinks for fast healing as well.
After your colonic be sure to avoid raw veggies, steamed are a better way to go! Another helpful suggestion is to eat pureed soups and keep meat consumption down for the next 3 days following your session. Also, freshly caught, cold-water fish is the preferred protein for the first 24 hours.
Try this tip for good selfcare by including a warm Epson Salt detox bath the evening of your hydrotherapy and be sure to avoid alcoholic drinks for 24 hours.
