Colon Hydrotherapy 101
Frequently Asked Questions
What is colon hydrotherapy / colonic irrigation?
Colon Hydrotherapy, traditionally known as a colonic or colon irrigation is the soothing flow of purified warm water, instilled gently into the colon through a disposable colon cleansing nozzle, (“size-of-a-pencil”). The small nozzle is easily inserted to cleanse (evacuate) the contents of your lower colon.
Is there a special kind of water used for Colon Hydrotherapy?
Yes, your water passes through an UltraViolet Water Purification System and carbon filter before being heated to the optimal temperature for your session.
Will laxatives accomplish the same result?
Laxatives empty the colon short term, but are an irritant to the body. Therefore, the body produces a thin watery substance that goes through the colon and leaves behind impacted toxins and waste. Colon hydrotherapy uses purified water and does not irritate the body actually hydrating you from the inside.
How long is a single appointment?
Each appointment is tailored specifically for your individual needs, but usually lasts between 50 – 70 minutes.
What is a Libbe Colon Hydrotherapy open system?
The Libbe device open system is provides more privacy, dignity and efficiency than a closed system. It offers the client a more relaxing, safe and comfortable session. This system allows the client to be in more control during their treatment.
The specially designed bed allows you to easily insert the lubricated thin nozzel yourself. Once the water is turned on your colon will gently take in as much water as it will tolerate, as you feel the need to evacuate, you simply release. Because of the continuous inflow and release during the treatment, the body’s own muscles are used to provide a more natural, gentle release. At the same time, peristalsis (action of the muscles of the colon) is greatly stimulated and this provides an excellent workout for the colon. Because of the nature of the LIBBE device, the qualified therapist does not need to be there with you all the time. This affords you as much privacy as you may desire.
How is Colon Hydrotherapy different from enemas?
Enemas are good to clean out the sigmoid and rectal areas of the colon, which extend to about 1ft. A series of colon-hydrotherapy treatments can clean out and remove impacted material from the entire colon which is 5-6 ft long. Additionally, colon hydrotherapy promotes peristalsis (wave-like muscle contractions) and helps the colon muscles regain tone therefore assisting the return of regular bowel movements.
What can I expect from Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy is not a cure, but a valuable procedure used to assist the body for a wide variety of different colon/non-colon related conditions.
By re-toning the bowel wall, removing harmful bacteria, and improving colon functions, the entire body is able to function more efficiently. Clients have experienced lightness or mental clarity, relief from bloating and increased energy immediately following a session.
How does Colon Hydrotherapy affect the Bacteria balance in my body?
Colon hydrotherapy has a definite effect on gut microbes and relieves the strain on the immune system caused by excess toxins from less than ideal gut microbes. However, colonics do not “strip” the gut bacteria. It is a gentle procedure which, unlike laxatives or medication, does not irritate the delicate gut lining or disrupt the gut microbiome. Research has shown that the microbiome will soon reconstitute itself following a colonic.
