Colon Hydrotherapy
Enema-Web.Com comprehensive guide to enemas




Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of removing waste and toxins from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. Using filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. "Headaches, undue weariness, fatigue are frequently the product of intestinal toxemia which spreads throughout the body. Cleansing the colon usually helps to correct such disturbances..." "No health and healing procedures can be as successful as those which have a series of colon irrigation's as the prelude to any health treatment."

Colon hydrotherapy can be helpful with the following disorders:
constipation, diarrhea, skin problems, bad breath, allergies, headaches, flatulence, hemorrhoids, intestinal parasites, weight problems.
Sometimes the nurse will give you an enema before a detailed medical procedure.
It may prove beneficial when taken prior to medical diagnostic procedures or when used pre-surgically to empty the bowels.


Colonic Irrigation or known as Colón hydrotherapy

This page has been prepared to try an answer some of the more common questions and concerns about Colonic Irrigation.
It may have been suggested to you that this therapy may be appropriate for you or may assist in your promotion of a healthy intestinal tract.
If you have any further concerns or questions then please discuss them with your health care provider or your Colon Hydrotherapist.
Colonic Irrigation is the safe gentle introduction of filtered warm water into the rectum (anus) under low pressure. This has the effect of assisting the removal of material from the colon (intestines).
The technique is not new, and has it's origins in Indian bowel cleansing techniques as practiced by yogi's.

WHAT IS A COLONIC ? It is a Colonic Irrigation using gravitational method an internal bath that helps cleanse the Colon of Poisons, Gas, and Accumulated Fecal Matter. Unlike an ENEMA, it does not involve the retention of water. There is NO discomfort, Not much internal pressure, just a steady gentle flow in and out of the Colon. At the same time, an Abdominal Massage is usually given to stimulate the Colon to recover its natural Shape, Tone, and Peristaltic Wave Action. HOW IS A COLONIC ADMINISTERED? A person receiving lies on a Special Board which is about 32"42" below the Controlled water flow. A Sterilized Rectal Speculum is gently inserted in the Rectum. Water flow, which is under the control of the person or client receiving the enema, flows into the rectum via a small water tube or specula, then out and around the specula carrying with it Impacted Feces and Mucous. As the water flows out of the rectum the client gently Massages their Abdomen to help the anus release its contents. It is possible to see this Expelled Waste Matter in the catch basin at the end of the process. The person is well covered and their modesty is given TOP PRIORITY during the procedure. The colonic process takes about 45 to 60 minutes or sometimes longer. The number of treatments required varies with the individual and her/his prevailing condition.

Colonic Irrigation can be used as an adjunct to other therapies and in many cases seems to improve the outcome of
therapy, regardless of the therapy involved. Since Colonic Irrigation seems to improve colon function it may therefore help the body in other ways to bring about a more satisfactory return to health. Information gained during Colonic Irrigation can also be utilize in better directing treatment towards the individual. A colonic treatment is totally unlike an enema. At the end of the procedure, the patient normally evacuates the bowel in the toilet in the normal way. Then the patient is re-weighed again. During the course of the treatment, it is possible to identify specific dietary requirements and problems with digestion, these findings can be passed on to the therapist who may have refereed the patient or can be used by the Colon therapist, in order to provide adequate dietary modification and treatments between colonics.

Temperature...? Most people find that a warm water enema or colonic can be tolerated more easily than a cold one. I use a very warm enema when I want to fill myself with the maximum amount of solution possible. I use a cool water enema when I need to force out water and material that is stuck in my bowel. The temperatures given are that of the water as it is poured into the bag. It cools off some before it gets into the colon. Don't try to judge temperature with your fingers, they're too unreliable. If you don't want to use a thermometer, use your tongue! It's a fairly reliable reference for body temperature. Cool water is 30 - 35 degrees C (86 - 95 degrees F) Warm water is 40- 42 degrees C (104 - 108 degrees F) Hot water is 43 - 45 degrees C (110 - 113 degrees F) don’t take water any hotter than 45 C or 113 F or you can scald the colon. You can take it as cold as you can stand, some take crushed ice enemas, but I suspect most people couldn't even accept water that cold into their bowel.


"It helps relieve gas and spasms in the bowel, assists healing of digestive problems, and relieves many back and musculoskeletal pains, often caused by pressure  from the intestines. Its greatest importance, however, is in eliminating toxins from the colon, in relieving stress on the liver, and in improving lymphatic and capillary function. When you begin to improve your diet with more natural and chemical-free foods, and begin to eliminate toxins by cleansing and colonics, you will become younger, stronger, and healthier.
