Frequently Asked Questions

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy is a safe effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. Hygienic equipment and disposable nozzles are used in order to evacuate the contents of the bowel by introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon. Fecal material is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated several times during a session. Colon hydrotherapy is also referred to as colon therapy, colonics, high colonics and colonic irrigation. It is used as an alternative to oral purgative prior to radiological and endoscopic examinations or when otherwise medically indicated.

How do I prepare for my first appointment?

After your initial call to BioNaturally and scheduling a convenient time for your appointment, you will be emailed the necessary forms to be completed prior to your session. This allows ample time to review and fill-in the Personal History and Informed Consent forms at your leisure. We recommend you arrive a few minutes early to relax and maybe even enjoy some herbal tea before your session. Your therapist will then review the forms with you and answer any additional questions you may have. At this time you will be introduced to the system and receive a full explanation of the procedure before starting your session.

What is a colon hydrotherapy session like?

After the process is explained, the colon hydrotherapist will leave the room to allow you privacy. You will disrobe from the waist down, recline on the system and self-insert a slender, single use, lubricated nozzle one to two inches into the rectum. A cotton sheet is provided to drape over you. Your dignity is always maintained. At this time you will push a button which signals for the therapist to re-enter the room and start the session. The session is a comfortable experience for many people. Soothing music and low lights invite relaxation as a small amount of water is allowed to flow into the colon gently stimulating the colonís natural peristaltic action to release softened waste. The release of the contents of the colon may be repeated several times. This process should encourage better colon function and elimination.

How many colon hydrotherapy sessions do I need?

Of course, the number of colon hydrotherapy sessions desired will depend on the individual. Every personís goals will differ. Just as some people exercise to tone and tighten their outer body, some also choose to follow an ongoing cleansing, toning and rebuilding regimen for the inner body. Colon hydrotherapy is best used in combination with adequate nutrient and fluid intake as well as exercise. Todayís sophisticated technology promotes both the safety and sanitation of this popular cleansing practice.
