Colonic hydrotherapy is one of the most popular methods of cleansing the intestines and normalising the functioning of the digestive tract. This method of eliminating problems with the gastrointestinal tract is offered not only by medical spas and hospitals but also salons. However, physicians strongly recommend that this cleansing of the body be performed just in medical institutions such as sanatoria and medical clinics and centres, which implies the presence of experienced and qualified personnel. This approach helps to protect the patient from negligence when conducting this medical procedure, from rectal injuries and prevents side effects.
In our clinic, an experienced gastroenterologist will recommend a course of colonic irrigation in Islington to those who really need it.
In fact, colonic hydrotherapy is a way to cleanse the body of toxins and harmful substances that have accumulated in it by delivering pure water or extracts of medicinal herbs into the rectum and removing dissolved faecal mass using specialised equipment. Colonic irrigation in Islington is considered a way to cleanse the body as a whole, and not just a way to cleanse the intestines because colonic hydrotherapy washing only the large intestine directly (physically) also helps cleanse the small intestine, liver and kidneys.
No special preparation for colonic hydrotherapy is required. You must follow a diet with a restriction in the intake of foods that cause flatulence in the intestines for several days before the procedure. This is such food as fizzy drinks, cabbage, legumes (peas, lentils), fresh bread, fruit, pastries, alcohol.
The patient lies down on the couch at the beginning of the procedure. Practising therapists advise lying on your back because this reduces the discomfort. Water or herbal solution enters the intestines in portions with the help of specialised equipment. The temperature of the water usually varies throughout the session from warm to cool, and the pressure alternates also. As excipients, herbal extracts, enterosorbents, probiotics can be added to water. Such a hydromassage stimulates the walls of the large intestine and relieves the body of excess deposits effectively.
Water and intestinal contents are brought out through the system of disposable hoses tightly, cleanly, odourless. Water is supplied continuously through one hose, waste is discharged from the intestine through the other one. A person sees how colonic hydrotherapy passes and may seek help from a specialist who performs the procedure in case of any discomfort.
The duration of Colonic irrigation session in Islington can be from 25 to 50 minutes. The amount of water used for this treatment does not exceed twenty-five litres usually. The doctor prescribes from three to ten sessions of colon hydrotherapy usually. Intestinal cleansing occurs gradually. It allows you to soften and bring even the hardest faecal matter out through continuous alternation of adjustable and entirely controlled water pressure. Staging during intestinal cleansing is imperative since the entire colon is not cleaned in one session. Water penetrates only into the rectum in the first stage. It gradually softens the hardened deposits on the walls of the rectum and sigmoid colon. In the next phase, the water penetrates deeper and begins to clean the lower parts of the large intestine. Each time more distant parts of the intestine are cleaned. Water does not penetrate into the small intestine during colonic hydrotherapy. However, a mild effect on the walls of the large intestine with water of varying temperature (sometimes warmer or colder) causes reflex cleansing of the small intestine. Similarly, the kidneys and liver are cleaned.
At the end of the course of colonic irrigation in Islington, the intestines are completely cleared of perennial deposits that poison the body and interfere with healthy digestion.
