colon hydrotherapy
kari asked:

I’m thinking about getting a colon hydrotherapy. But I can’t find any major hospital (private or public) that has colon hydrotherapy in its list of service. I can only find the practice of colon hydrotherapy on small clinics that don’t look convincing for me.
I just agree with the idea of cleansing your colon every few months, just as I visit my dentist every 5-6 months.

You should be able to find it in more places under a different name… an enema. Every major hospital and clinic has the availability to give an enema, but calling it hydrotherapy is something that most hospitals aren’t comfortable calling it.

That being said, if you get enemas on a regular basis, you can throw off the entire ecology of your intestines, which can impact your regularity and even your immune system. Because of that, I highly recommend taking a good probiotic complex (at the least) after you get the enema to replenish the beneficial bacteria and keep your intestinal digestion as optimal as you can. Good luck!

because colon hydro-therapy is NOT a mainstream therapy process; it’s NOT gonna be found at the major hospitals.

Because a private/small clinic is not Rushed with a motherlode of patients, the therapists has the time to cater to patients and not meet some requirements of HMO’s.

I would feel the other way – a hospital administering a colon therapy. What if a code blue should occur, that therapist may have to attend to it and (I know, weird senerio) leave me on the table and forget about me. Which I have control to get off and on. Nah, I prefer that private, small, 1-on-1 environment.

Colonic Hydrotherapy, Colonic Irrigation, whatever fancy name you want to give it….its an enema. Hospitals give enemas occasionally for the relief of constipation. That is it.

Colonic Hydrotherapy as proposed by various alternative practitioners claims to “detoxify” the body from all sorts of unspecified toxins and other nasties, and boost your immune system bla bla bla. There is no evidence for this, and the practise is without any scientific merit. that is why you won’t find it available as a “service” at a legitimate hospital, but only at spas, private “holistic health” clinics, naturopaths etc.

You may “agree with the idea” but there is no reason to clean out your colon. Your body does a really good job of that on its own.

It is also a potentially dangerous practice. It can deplete the body of electrolytes like sodium and potassium. It can remove beneficial bacteria as effectively as overuse of antibiotics (ironic, huh?) and there is a small but serious risk of bowel perforation and peritonitis.
