Colonic irrigation in Swindon

Colonic irrigation aftercare advice is one of the most frequent subjects raised by our patients during the appointment. And, of course, they ask for a short description of the procedure. So, we are happy to cover these subjects here.

Colonic irrigation is an extended and complete form of colon cleansing. It involves the process of infusing warm filtered water into the rectum. This procedure also improves muscle tone, reduces stagnation and bacterial build-up in the colon, and promotes colon health. Moreover, with modern technological improvements and trained therapists, colonic irrigation effectively treats disease and promotes wellness.

Colonic irrigation corrects the ravages of toxicity and reduces stagnation while exercising and strengthening the colon’s muscles. The colon beings restore their natural peristalsis immediately after the removal of months and years of this toxic glue-like material. Besides, removing impactions, parasites, and cellular debris cleanses and rejuvenates the portion of the immune system that resides in the intestinal tract.



Aftercare advise for colonic patients.

After colonic hydrotherapy treatment, you should feel fine and not experience any unwanted side effects. Although there are a few simple measures to follow:

  • Follow any specific advice on diet, supplements, exercise, etc., given to you by your practitioner.
  • Don’t overeat. Eat lightly cooked or raw food, and chew well. A diet rich in fruit and vegetables (especially leafy) will add to the cleansing effect and help to regulate the bowels.
  • Don’t eat red meat (beef, lamb, pork and game) every day; white meat and fish and vegetarian meals are much easier to digest.
  • Eat only whole grains, e.g. brown rice, wholemeal flour, NOT refined, e.g. white flour products, pasta.
  • Avoid lots of mucus-forming foods like refined grains, dairy products and eggs.
  • The colon absorbs a small amount of water during the treatment, and you may notice an increased need to urinate. It is normal and will subside quickly.
  • Drink plenty of fluids. If your digestion is weak, don’t drink with meals or 30 minutes before or 1 hour after meals. Avoid alcohol for at least 48 hours.
  • You may experience some flatulence and bowel sounds due to the bowel bacteria multiplying back up to strength for up to 48 hours after colonic irrigation. Probiotic supplements/foods may be helpful, and fruit and vegetables will help.


  • If griping occurs, then drink hot Peppermint, Fennel or Chamomile infusions. Also, avoid cold drinks, carbonated drinks and gassy foods.
  • Don’t expect a bowel movement the next day after colonic irrigation: depending upon your condition, it may take several days before regular bowel movements resume.
  • Avoid rigorous exercise and weight lifting for 24 hours after treatment.
  • If you experience any continued discomfort, telephone your therapist.
