Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon Hydrotherapy includes the mechanical process of infusing warm filtered water into the rectum with the objective of cleansing and balancing the colon. It helps to remove fecal material from the colon wall, especially the waste which is difficult to remove by other methods.

Colon cleansing was first recorded 1500 B.C. in ancient Egyptian documents. It became popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s and found recognition among health professionals in Europe, Asia and North America. Indeed, Colon Hydrotherapy does have its merit. It removes metabolic waste from a person’s large bowel without employing toxic agents of any kind.

Intestinal health is much ignored in modern medicine. Much more attention is paid to other organs and systems. However, intestinal health is considered crucial to maintaining normal function of the human body in Chinese medicine. Anatomically, the intestinal system resides in the middle of the body. It controls the ascending and descending Qi. The ascending Qi distributes the nutrition to nourish the body and keep the immune system strong. The descending Qi eliminates the waste of metabolism and discharges toxins to prevent toxin accumulation. In Chinese medicine, the colon is the major site to eliminate waste from the body. Many health related issues can be linked to large intestine. Colon cleansing is recommended by many celebrities including Dr. Oz. Colon hydrotherapy is one of the colon cleansing methods. It is the strongest one and should only be performed by qualified professionals.
