Colon Hydrotherapy is referred to as colon irrigation, colonics, colon therapy, or high enemas. All devices use safe, filtered, temperature-controlled water into the colon by way of a sterile, disposable rectal tube. Water in- waste matter flushed out. This procedure removes fecal material from the colon walls and dilutes the bacterial toxin concentration in the large intestine. The therapeutic effects of colon hydrotherapy are improved muscle tone which facilitates peristaltic action and enhances the absorption of nutrients from the cecum and ascending colon while minimizing the absorption of toxic waste material. The cleansing effects of colon hydrotherapy reduce stagnation and subsequent bacterial proliferation in the colon and maintain harmony of the intestinal flora in promoting optimal health.
