Colonic hydrotherapy or irrigation is a gentle internal bath using warm, purified water that can help to eliminate stored faecal matter, gas, mucus and toxic substances from the colon.
A practice dating from around 1500 BC, colonics can also help re-tonify and re-shape the colon. However, colonic hydrotherapy hasa much broader effect than simply cleansing the colon.
Additional benefits can often be observed throughout the body in the form of clearer skin, more energy and fewer headaches. Patients have often found other positive side effects of treatment, citing stark improvements in their circulatory, immune and weight problems.
Referrals to colonic practitioners often come from alternative therapists including homoeopaths, acupuncturists and herbalists as they find that detoxifying the system using colonics leads to better results in their therapies.
