After food has passed through your stomach and small intestine, the residual material moves to the first section of your large intestine – your colon. At approximately 6 feet long, your colon’s primary job is to dehydrate liquid waste material in preparation for excretion. The average colon contains nearly 60 varieties of microflora and bacteria which aid digestion and promote nutrient production. This helps to maintain pH balance and prevent the growth and proliferation of harmful bacteria.
During colon therapy, the patient lies on a comfortable, custom-built treatment bed while a small speculum is gently inserted into the rectum, which allows warm, filtered water to pass into the colon.
Modern colon hydrotherapy equipment utilizes multi-stage water purification systems and disposable contact elements, which eliminate any contamination or infection risks. The hydrotherapy equipment is a open system which allows waste material to be discretely carried from the colon to the drainage line without offensive odor or visual contact.
