Colon Hydrotherapy not the same as enema
During an enema only the last part of the large intestine -the rectum- is cleaned of defecation to for example make certain treatments easier.
During an enema a chemical substance or water is infused into the rectum through the anus with a special syringe or small hose. The objective is to soften the stool and to stimulate the intestinal wall such that the intestines empty themselves.
During a colon hydrotherapy it is possible with gentle water pressure to clean higher in the large intestines than is possible with an enema.
Why Colon Hydrotherapy?
The intestines affect many life processes in our body such as the uptake of nutrients from food and the maintenance of a healthy immune system. In the bowels there is an important balance of ‘good and bad’ bacteria that are required for the optimal functioning. A disruption of this balance can occur through for example junk food, certain medicines, bad eating habits, stress and lack of physical exercise.
The balance of ‘bad to good’ bacteria can then be disturbed resulting in an unhealthy intestinal environment. Consequently, the intestines will not perform their functions optimally what can result in chronic complaints and a decreased immune system.
During a colon hydrotherapy the large intestine is cleansed thoroughly. Firstly the accumulated waste is removed. Thereafter the lumps and crusts that have developed over years are soaked loose. Subsequently slime, gas, parasites, and toxins are excreted.
This will result in an improved functioning of the large intestines and a better uptake of nutrients. In most cases, this cleanse has a direct positive effect on the body and can reduce complaints significantly.
