Colon hydrotherapy is the process of cleansing the colon of many different types of harmful bacteria and infections. After the colonic, you will find that you feel lighter, happier and healthier. Your colon can become infected with many different afflictions ranging from haemorrhoids, hernias and even cancerous cells. Here, in London, we will help your digestive tract gain probiotics. They will help your body function better than ever before. The probiotics are generally outnumbered 20% to 80%, which can be due to several reasons. Irregular bowel movements, chronic constipation, sedentary life, diets rich with carbohydrates, food poisoning and infectious diseases are all common issues that lead to adverse and dangerous colonic ailments.
Colonic irrigation is the process of cleansing the colon by a professional colon hydrotherapist.
The irrigation re-trains the colon to become independent of the foods that we eat. It also helps the colon's muscles become more reliable and function healthier than ever before or imagined. Some people rely on stimulants to trigger peristalsis. Consequently, they are allowing their bodies to become breeding grounds for diseases and infections. Some stimulants include nicotine, caffeine and even herbal teas. Many people generally know that some ailments can occur because of these stimulants. However, most people are unaware of the effect of stimulants on the colon, prostate and digestive tract.
The initial consultation here at our facility will help us inform you and decide on a cleansing regiment that will suit your body the best. We will perform the first colonic irrigation during the consultation. The initial colonic irrigation will help us discover what the best course of action will be. Moreover, the meeting will be a great time to ask questions and become more informed about your body functions. Our goal is not just to cleanse you one time, but we hope to help you be more knowledgeable about leading a happy and healthy lifestyle.
Although the cost is relevant, far more important is your health. A knowledgeable colonic irrigation therapist will listen to your questions and give you as comprehensive as possible answers. Besides, your practitioner can help you on the road to vital health.
Also known as a "Colonic", "colon lavage", colon hydrotherapy", or "high Colonic". Colonic irrigation is a safe, effective method for cleansing the colon of waste material by repeated, gentle flushing with water.
The colon, or large intestine, is the end portion of the human digestive tract (food carrying passageway extending from the mouth to the anus).
What is the purpose of having a colonic?
Firstly, this material is quite toxic (poisonous). Moreover, these poisons can re-enter and circulate in the bloodstream, making us feel ill, tired or weak. Secondly, impacted materials impair the colon's ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-produced vitamins. And finally, a build-up of content on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements, constipation, and the result of these disorders.
What conditions treated?
Many conditions benefit from colonic irrigation, including:
Skin problems: eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, acne, etc.
Urinary urgency in females
How can I tell if I have toxic material in my colon?
This condition is prevalent in all civilised societies, and particularly in the UK. Common signs include headaches, backaches, constipation, fatigue, bad breath, body odour, irritability, confusion, skin problems, abdominal gas, bloating, diarrhoea, sciatic pain, and so forth. But the colon isn't the only organ of elimination, what makes the colonic irrigation so important? While the lungs, skin, kidneys and liver also serve to eliminate toxins. Colonic irrigation is the most effective process available to accomplish this work quickly and easily.
What makes a colonic so unique?
In a 45 minute session, we use the filtered water for flushing the colon gently. Through appropriate use of massage, pressure points, etc., the colon therapist can work loose and eliminate far more toxic waste than any other short-term technique.
What will Colonics do to the colon?
Specifically, colonic irrigation using to accomplish the following:
Cleanse the Colon
It Exercises the Colon Muscles
Reshapes the Colon
It Stimulates Reflex Points
It sounds like colonic irrigation may be useful for me, but will it be painful?
Usually, painful experiences are the result of resistance and tension. A professional colonic irrigation therapist is skilling at putting you at your ease and minimising discomfort. Most people enjoy the Colonic and are especially pleased with the unaccustomed sensation of feeling lighter, clean and clear afterwards.
Is it embarrassing to have a Colonic irrigation?
No, you will fully maintain your dignity. Besides, you will be in a private room with only your therapist, who fully appreciates the sensitivity of the Colonic irrigation procedure and will help you feel at ease. Your emotions will be acknowledged and honoured. After the gentle insertion of a small tube into the rectum, you are entirely covered. Rubber tubing carries clean water in and wastes out in a gravity pressured system.
Is there anything I need to do to get ready for colonic irrigation?
Since your abdomen will be massaged, it is a good idea to eat or drink lightly in the 2 hours immediately preceding a Colonic irrigation. Also helpful, but not essential, emptying the rectum with a bowel movement just before the Colonic irrigation saves time and permits more to be accomplished.
And what can I expect afterwards?
Most likely, you'll feel great. Probably you'll feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well-being. Not infrequently, someone having first colonic irrigation will remark that it was one of the most amazing experiences of their life. As soon as the colonic irrigation is finished, you can carry on with the daily routine. For some, the colonic irrigation may trigger several subsequent bowel movements for the next few hours, but there won't be any uncontrollable urgency or discomfort. It's also possible you may feel light-headed or chilled for a few moments following colonic irrigation.
Are colonics dangerous in any way?
Colonic irrigation, being a most natural, this process is virtually safe. We intend to provide a safe and healthy service so that you do not have to worry. As standard procedure, we clean and sterilise the necessary equipment.
Will colonic irrigation make me constipated or give me diarrhoea?
The most frequent post-colonic experience is to have a slight delay in bowel movements and then a resumption of a somewhat more significant, more comfortable to move stool. Sometimes if the colon is weak and sluggish, there may be no bowel movement for several days following colonic irrigation. However, this is not due to the colonic irrigation, but rather to the weakness of the colon. It could be due to the extra water introduced into the colon or to the stirring up of toxic waste. If this should occur, it is usually of short duration; however, since severe diarrhoea dehydrates the body.
Suppose I have been suffering from constipation for a long time, will colonic irrigation help?
We want to state that natural, harmless techniques, including the use of colonic irrigation, can successfully treat constipation. Constipation is one of what termed "civilised man's diseases". There are three factors involved in having a well-functioning colon: diet, exercise and attitude. All three must be in balance for the colon to function well. Often, however, because the colon has been sluggish for so long. The process of colonic irrigation is excellent for cleansing and healing the colon sufficiently so that changes in diet, exercise, and attitude are then able to produce their effects. Many people find the relief provided by colonic irrigation stimulates the motivation and enthusiasm to institute positive changes in their lifestyle.
Some people say that colonics wash out intestinal flora and valuable nutrients. Is this so?
Well, this is probably the most frequently asked question about colonic irrigation. So, the truth is that the washing out of putrefied material in the large intestine increases the population of probiotics. Moreover, good bacteria only breed in a clean environment. Therefore, the bowels of a newborn baby immediately begin to grow good intestinal flora. Each time you clean out the putrefying rubbish and make a better environment for the good flora, they start to multiply immediately in their natural media. By the way, probiotics produce vitamins "K" and "B" for us.
How long does a colonic take?
Probably 90% of all Colonics take about 45 minutes. It could also be shorter or longer than that. That depends on the judgement of the therapist and sometimes, the wishes of the client. On first Colonic irrigation, you should expect to spend 90 minutes at the clinic.
Is there a special kind of water used for colonic irrigation?
We use highly filtered water. This kind of water is capable of absorbing and flushing more toxins out of the colon because of its drawing effect on solid particles, chemicals and other matter. It already has numerous chemicals and inorganic substances present.
Will it be all right to eat after having colonic irrigation?
We suggest that you eat at your regular mealtime, and consume a moderate amount of whatever seems gentle and nourishing to you. Then immediately drive it through mud, eating a meal known to cause trouble in your abdomen directly after a Colonic irrigation isn't an intelligent choice. Besides, salads, vegetable soups or broths, fruit, or juices are the best choice.
Will one colonic empty the colon?
Rarely. Firstly, many of us have a considerable amount of impacted faeces in our colon. Secondly, there is a mental learning process involved in receiving colonics. As you become more aware of what is going on in your abdomen, and as your body learns how to allow the cleansing experience, you are better able to enter into that process. One colonic irrigation will remove some of the stagnant waste in the colon. The second and subsequent colonics will remove more. However, how many you may wish to have will depend upon your objectives.
How will I know when the colon is empty?
It will probably never be empty, as it's an organ in continuous use. As more of the old impacted material leaves the bowel, you will feel the water enter higher sections of the colon without any sense of obstruction. The objective should not be an empty colon, but rather a well-functioning colon.
Will colonic irrigation clear up my skin?
Your skin actually "breathes" and is an essential organ of elimination of waste material. Sometimes, if the colon, liver or kidneys are functioning poorly, the skin will need to make up the difference. Cleansing and healing the colon diminishes the burden placed upon the skin as well as the other organs of elimination: lungs, liver and kidneys. As elimination is accomplishing through its proper channels, the skin will very often clear up.

A few more benefits of colonic irrigation
One of the most essential benefits of colonic irrigation is suppression of yeast infection so-called chronic candidiasis. Especially for this purpose, we offer a procedure using a low concentration sodium bicarbonate solution. All of the known strains of Candida simply do not survive in the bicarbonate of soda environment.
However, bicarbonate of soda is a very useful substance for human bodies and brings a few more benefits of colonic irrigation. Moreover, it is entirely natural for us because humans blood contains sodium bicarbonate. That is why we introduce this kind of treatment to kill Candida in the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract. Sodium bicarbonate also retains potassium in the body.
These are just some of the benefits of colonic irrigation, which celebrities like Lisa Snowdon have enjoyed and endorse. Many people have undergone the process and will testify to its benefits, whether it is improved weight control, higher spirits or a better skin condition. If you are suffering from any of the symptoms above, then colonic irrigation should undoubtedly be a consideration.
