Sigmoid colon. Colon hydrotherapy in Truro or an enema?

An enema or colon hydrotherapy in Truro is a medical procedure involving introducing water or other fluids and water solutions of medications in the rectum. Depending on the purpose of treatment, enemas may be cleansing, medicinal/therapeutic or nutritious. However, modern medicine does not use these methods. Therefore, some people may call colon hydrotherapy in Truro an administered large enema. This process clears the intestine of harmful substances accumulated in it.

A pear-shaped rubber balloon is the most suitable tool for medicinal enemas. Another popular tool is a Janet syringe with a long rubber tip/catheter.
Medicinal enemas are mainly microclysters with a volume of 50-100 ml. The temperature of therapeutic solutions should not be less than 40 degrees Celsius. Otherwise, the patient may urge to defecate, and the medicine will not have time to be absorbed well.


Currently, colonic treatments are available at our Holborn location in the centre of London.


Medicinal enemas

Various diseases of the large intestine may indicate a need for medicinal enemas. Those diseases include inflammatory processes, erosions, ulcers, and the treatment of inflammation of parenteral tissue and pelvic cavity. In this case, we are talking about the so-called local medicinal enemas. However, therapeutic enema is also a popular method. They help administer medications and nutrients that affect the body as a whole.

Colon hydrotherapy in Truro is excellent in inflammatory processes, erosions and ulcers. Besides, it is ideal for treating inflammation of parenteral tissue and the pelvic cavity. In this case, we are talking about the so-called local medicinal enemas. Therapeutic enemas are also in everyday use. They are competent in administering medications and nutrients that affect the body.

Remedies absorbed into the hemorrhoidal veins enter the bloodstream, bypassing the liver. It is a very convenient way of administering medications if injecting them in another way is impossible.



Bowel cleansing with colon hydrotherapy in Truro

It is necessary to empty the intestines before using medicinal enemas. Therefore, the patient needs 30 minutes of colon cleansing before the procedure.

Indications for the use of medicinal enemas are:

  • Inflammatory diseases of the rectum and distal colon.
  • Bleeding from the rectum or the distal colon.
  • The impossibility of administering medications by the parenteral or intravenous route.

Beneficial solutions

Colon hydrotherapy in Truro also provides cleansing, which removes impurities from more distant parts of the bowels.

For instance, therapists inject low concentrated solutions of the active substance into the rectum. It is necessary to avoid mechanical, thermal or chemical irritation with high concentrations of medications.

Medicines are often introduced in a warm isotonic sodium chloride solution or the composition of coating solutions, for example, in a starch solution. Colon hydrotherapy in Truro also involves using beneficial solutions based on herbs or medicines.
