Colon Hydrotherapy, Colon Cleansing, Colon Irrigation, Colonics, is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs. It is a gentle, clean and relaxing experience. Colonics gently cleanse and exercise the colon by filling and emptying the colon with filtered and temperature regulated water. The waste is then softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a session. Colonics are best used in combination with adequate nutrients and fluid intake as well as exercise. The current technology promotes both the safety and sanitation of this popular cleansing practice and the colon therapy equipment is manufactured through compliance with strict FDA guidelines. Also many health practitioners suggest that colonics can be a good and gentler preparation for a colonoscopy.
