Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colon irrigation or colon cleansing is the flushing of waste through the colon using large amounts of water. It is done to support the detoxification, boost mood and energy, relieve abdominal pain and support the immune system. It is performed by a colonic hygienist, who inserts a tube into the rectum while the individual lies on the table. Highly filtered temperature-controlled water, sometimes with the addition of herbs or other substances is pushed through the colon, and then released through the colon in a similar way to a bowel movement. Colon hydrotherapy is also believed to exert benefits such as relieving constipation, improving cognitive function, digestive disorders, balancing the microbiota and the microbiome and improving skin conditions such as acne, eczema, skin dryness. About 30 to 60 liters of water is passed through the colon, and the treatment generally lasts 30 to 45 minutes. It is considered a safe and gentle process, but it is not recommended for people with anemia, hypertension, Crohn’s disease, kidney disease and a few others.
