What is Colon Hydrotherapy
Colonic hydrotherapy, or Colonic irrigation is where waste material is flushed out of the bowel using water introduced through a tube inserted into the rectum.
This complementary therapy may sound like a new health fad, but it dates back to ancient Greece. The idea for the cleaning technique comes from the theory that waste matter in the bowel could poison the body.
The procedure is carried out while the person lies on their side for 30 to 40 minutes.
Around 60 liters of water may be used for the procedure. Some colonic hydrotherapists add herbal infusions to the water first.
