Colon hydrotherapy

The catalyst for great gut function and nature's 'botox' for glowing skin, in Bec's opinion

Right now, you hold 2-8 kg of

waste in your colon.

Read that again. And again. Gross, I know. Think about your height. Your colon is as long as your tall, so there’s a lot to clean out!

If you want to feel lighter, more energetic, eliminate your digestive complaints and have a clearer mind, skin and eyes, then colon hydrotherapy is for you. Colonics are the quickest way to hydrate the body. It is safe, effective and a drug/supplement free way to manage your gut symptoms and improve your overall health.

Here are just some of the benefits:

  • Resets and tones the muscles of the colon - opposite to a laxative action

  • Reduces stagnation of intestinal waste, therefore reducing absorption of toxic waste

  • Relief from bloating, constipation and water retention

  • Weight loss

  • More and renewed energy

  • Clearer, healthier skin and brighter eyes

  • Reduces headaches, aches and pain

  • Flushes out lactic acid quickly - great for gym-goers

  • Clearer mind and concentration

  • An overall healthier, functioning digestive system

When water is taken into the colon, it hydrates and stimulates the colon muscles to work more effectively to push accumulated waste products, toxins, bacteria, parasites and candida, creating a happier environment in the colon. Colon hydrotherapy not only hydrates and stimulates your colon, but also other organs of elimination – liver, kidneys, lymphatic (immune) and skin, so it is a whole body cleanse!

Common myths:

You can become dependent on them:

Unlike laxatives which contain compounds that mechanically simulate muscle movement, in-turn causing chronic dependence. Quite the opposite - one of the features of colonic hydrotherapy is the toning of the colon muscles, which helps in maintaining and resuming regular bowel movements.

It will flush out gut flora:

75% of every bowel motion consists of water as well as bacteria and waste material. Colonic hydrotherapy does not flush all good or bad bacteria out of the body. Once toxins are removed from the colon, the beneficial bacteria have a cleaner habitat facilitating their multiplication, therefore achieving a positive bacterial balance.

Colonics aren’t safe:

There are a few contra-indications to keep in mind when considering colonic hydrotherapy, including recent colon and abdominal surgeries, active hemorrhoids, hernias and uncontrolled high blood pressure. We thoroughly check the suitability of each individual prior to starting any treatment. In some cases, we may refer you to your doctor for further examinations to assess suitability for treatment.
