Frequently Asked Questions
What is hydrocolonic therapy?
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened.  The loosened waste is removed by a secondary tube. Our closed system process means that our process is completely hygienic and odorless. This is repeated a few times during a session to ensure that as much of the impacted waste as feasible is removed as gently as possible.

What are possible signs of a colon that is not functioning properly?
When sufferers visit a physician, they speak of symptoms of one or more of these chronic complaints: coated tongue, sallow complexion, constipation, bad breath, asthma, backache, dark circles under the eyes, pot belly, tension, abnormal body odor, cold hands and feet, blood pressure problems, brittle nails and hair, fatigue, allergies, indigestion, menstrual problems, swelling of legs, and loss of memory or concentration.

Is colon hydrcolonic therapy painful?
An impacted colon can cause discomfort, and cramping may occur as the colon contracts to expel waste. Once the major impaction is removed, many actually find their session pleasant.

How long does it take?
Each session takes approximately 45 minutes. In order to allow time for preparation in addition to instruction prior and following your treatment please allow an hour. We also provide complimentary supplements to restore proper nutrients back into your system.

What kind of diet should I follow after getting a hydrocolonic therapy session?
Following large intestinal cleansing, the body may feel weary or relaxed. This is simply your body adjusting to the removal of such long held impactions; proper rest is important for your body to recuperate and rejuvenate. After receiving hydrocolonic therapy, for best results: Drink plenty of liquids (distilled water, juices, herb teas, and electrolyte liquids). Eat light foods for 24 hours after the procedure. (Vegetable soups are recommended) Avoid eating raw vegetables for a few days, steamed is fine as is raw fruit.
