Colon hydrotherapy is an internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of toxins, gas, accumulated fecal matter and mucus deposits. This gentle treatment has been practiced throughout history for its health benefits, with the first recorded use in 1500 BC. Colon hydrotherapy is more effective than enemas because the entire colon is treated and water is not purposely retained.
Colon hydrotherapy at Sanoviv is administered by a group of trained female colon therapists. Sterile, single-use equipment introduces filtered water via the rectum. The therapist controls the water flow, and uses external abdominal massage to soften fecal matter and old deposits on the colon wall. This waste is then removed from the body when the gentle water pressure is released.
Colon hydrotherapy can be used on its own to improve health or it can be used in conjunction with other therapies. When elimination is improved, the body can detoxify more effectively, a key component in healing.
