Colon Cleansing -How Is it Done

May 16, 2008
More and more people are seeking this gentle, yet effective alternative treatment. Many are apprehensive or anxious about the procedure even though it is painless. If you wonder what to expect when you visit your colon hygiene practitioner, read on.

How do you clean your colon?

when you go for a colonic, or a colon hydrotherapy session, a tube will be inserted into your rectum via which large amounts of water will flow. The water has been pre warmed to body temperature and does not contain chemicals or medication. The colonic equipment used is designed to make it impossible to cross contaminate between patients.

What can I expect?

A colonic, as a colon cleansing treatment is also called, usually lasts for about one hour. Allow for ninety minutes, it can feel nice not having to rush after your treatment.Then your colon will be gently flushed by about 30 gallons of warm water. A small amount of water will go in, and then gets expelled, some more water will go in and the cycle continues until about 30 gallons have been used. The water gets expelled into a closed system making odors non existant. As the water is pulsing through your colon, the therapist will massage your abdomen to aid in the removal of impacted feces. This usually feels very nice and relaxing.

Should the colon be cleansed regularly?

Depending on your life style, a person with poor diet and little to no exercise could benefit from more frequent colonics, in general a colonic 2-4 times per year is recommended.

What about after the colon cleansing?

Many will experience feeling wonderful and more energetic after a colonic. Bowel movements may be lighter and more frequent.Symptoms may be lessened or even eliminated. Regular colonics may give you many health benefits, some you never even thought you could achieve. Once you have had your first colon cleanse session, you will look forward to the experience again.
