Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as colon cleansing, a colonic, or colonic irrigation is a procedure in which large amounts of water are flushed through the colon in order to support detoxification, boost energy, relieve abdominal pain and support the immune system. The intestinal flora is also known as our second immune system.
Colon irrigation is an internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of old dried fecal material. The water goes in very slowly, which allows the dried fecal material to soften; there is no discomfort, no internal pressure. At the same time, an abdominal massage is given to stimulate the colon to recover its natural tone and peristaltic wave action. Unlike an enema, it does not involve retention of the water, and the colonic water goes all the way around colon.
