Colonic Hydrotherapy & Nutrition

Colonic hydrotherapy is an age-old practice, going back to ancient Egypt and practiced today in traditional health systems, such as Ayurveda.

The procedure involves gently introducing filtered, warm water into the bowel and allowing it to release. This is repeated several times over 40-60 minutes. A ‘closed’ system is used, meaning all waste is removed without any mess or smell. It is a one-on-one treatment, with minimal bodily exposure and respect for privacy throughout.

What does Colonic Hydrotherapy help with?

Gut issues Colonic hydrotherapy is an excellent addition to the gut healing protocols I use with my clients; it removes compacted faecal matter, eliminates toxins that can be a by-product of herbal parasite cleanses, and it re-trains a sluggish bowel.

Cleanses/detoxes/fasts A colonic is a fundamental part of any cleanse, detox, liver flush or fast, mini or extended. It ensures that the toxins are eliminated and not re-absorbed through the colon wall.

Many other connected health issues As your gut health status and toxic load underpin your overall health, colonics have far-reaching benefits, including and not limited to helping with: IBS, PMS, migraines, skin issues, anxiety, depression, peri-menopause symptoms, chronic fatigue, weight-loss programmes and cancer.

Having a colonic is a simple step you can take towards detoxing and practicing preventative health and will leave you feeling lighter, energized and relaxed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be naked?

No. You cover your lower half with a towel and there is minimal exposure. I am very careful to respect your privacy throughout.

Will it wash away the good bacteria in my gut?

The aim of colonics is not to get rid of bad bacteria, but instead to flush out accumulated waste, parasites and hardened faecal matter that is lodged in crevices; also to re-train the bowel, so that bowel movements are more regular.

Is it hygienic?

I use disposable tubes for the colonic so there is no risk of cross-infection. I follow very strict cleaning procedures between each client’s visit.

Is it possible to do colonic irrigation during menstruation?

Yes; it can help alleviate period cramps.

How do I prepare for the colonic?

For 1-3 days before the colonic, increase water consumption to 2 litres per day (between meals). It is best to eat light, fibre-rich foods that pass through the digestive system easily. For example, vegetables and fruit and beans or pulses (only if you tolerate the latter two). Light protein is fine, e.g. fish. Avoid meat, bread, pasta, eggs, cheese and processed foods as these slow transit. Fat is fine. Avoid alcohol and minimise tea and coffee. If you are constipated, take 2 teaspoons of flax seeds per day leading up to the colonic. It is also fine to have just vegetable juice and bone broth (see below).

How many sessions do I need to clean the bowel out?

If you are wanting a really good clear out and detox, I recommend 3 sessions on 3 consecutive days. Over this period, I would consume purely vegetable juice and bone broth or vegetable broth and take ‘Clay and pectin blend’ (Specialist Herbal Supplies) in the evenings. This will maximise the detoxification.
