What Is Colon Hydrotherapy?

What is Colon Hydrotherapy? Colon Hydrotherapy is a method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a session

The History Of Colon Hydrotherapy

Historians tell us that the practice of colon hydrotherapy or, in its most basic form, the enema was first used by the Egyptians. The Ebers Papyrusof the 14th century B.C., and the Edwin Smith Papyrus (c. 1700 B.C.), both mention enemas and give directions for the use of the enema.

By the late 19th Century and early 20th Century, with the advent of rubber, the enema or clyster slowly gave way to colon hydrotherapy equipment.

Dr. Kellogg reported in the 1917 Journal of American Medicine that in the treatment of gastrointestinal disease in over 40,000 cases, he had used surgery in only twenty cases. The rest were helped as a result of cleansing the bowels, diet, and exercise. Colon hydrotherapy gained the attention of James A. Wiltsie, M.D., who contended that “our knowledge of the normal and abnormal physiology of the colon, and of its pathology and management,  has not kept pace with that of many organs and systems of the body.” He went on to say, “As long as we continue to assume that the colon will take care of itself, just that long will we remain in complete ignorance of perhaps the most important source of ill health in the whole body.”

Hydrotherapy session

  • A session is a comfortable experience for most people, however, if discomfort is experienced, the session can be stopped at any time. Techniques utilized allow a small amount of water to flow into the colon, gently stimulating the colon’s natural peristaltic action to release softened waste. The inflow of a small amount of water and the release of waste may be repeated several times. The removal of waste should encourage better colon function and elimination.

    During the session, most clothing can be kept on and you will be draped, or a gown might be worn to ensure modesty. Your dignity is always maintained.
