Colon Hydrotherapy Q & A

What is colon hydrotherapy?

The process of colon hydrotherapy involves gently rinsing your colon with warm water. The process removes fecal matter, gas, and mucus that’s backed up in the organ.

The water is infused via the rectum and the process of colon hydrotherapy is completely safe. No chemicals or drugs are used during the procedure.

What are the benefits of colon hydrotherapy?

A well-functioning, healthy, and clear bowel is an essential part of your health maintenance. When your colon is clear, you can absorb vital nutrients more easily. The process helps reshape and re-tone the colon, too. The colon is often neglected; people don’t always take care of their bowels the way they should. When it’s overloaded with toxic waste, it limits your body’s function.

The modern diet that contains an abundance of animal proteins, processed foods, sugar, and fat leads to an accumulation of waste and toxins in the colon. Compound this with daily stress and a lack of exercise and your colon suffers.

If your colon isn’t clear and functioning well, the waste and toxins sit and may end up re-entering the bloodstream and affecting your cells. This can lead to an increase in inflammation that puts you at risk for chronic diseases.

Does colon hydrotherapy hurt?

The procedure is well tolerated by most patients. You may feel pressure and a bit of discomfort when the speculum is first inserted into your rectum, but the sensation is brief. As the water flushes through your colon, you may have some mild stomach cramping and short bouts of light nausea as the toxic waste loosens from the walls of your bowels.

Is colon hydrotherapy safe?

When performed by a qualified doctor, such as Dr. Rafael Nieto, colon hydrotherapy is completely safe. The devices used for the procedure are sterilized or disposable and FDA approved. The water also used for the therapy goes through an advanced filtration process prior to use.
