Today we are hearing more and more about colon hydrotherapy. Actually, colon hydrotherapy has been around since 1500 BC. It was recorded in an Egyptian medical document written as the Ebers Papyrus. This document is in the Leipzig Library.
Fortunate for us, the technique and approach has improved tremendously. The equipment today is registered with the FDA and here in Florida, one must be a massage therapist to be a colon therapist. There is a state exam that must be passed before becoming a certified colon therapist.
Colon therapy is a gentle and safe approach of removing waste from the large intestines. It is more complete then an enema. By using filtered and regulated temperature water into the colon the waste is soften and loosened, resulting in elimination through natural peristalsis.
The role of the therapist is to educate the client, not to diagnosis, prescribe or treat a condition. Most therapist will have a network of professionals that they refer to.
People want colon therapy for varies reasons. Many doctors will refer because of a health condition, others want a lifestyle change, and people have constipation, diarrhea, IBS, gas, bloating, indigestion, and many other digestive disorders.
The session usually will take 60-75 minutes. Every therapist has their own approach. The first visit maybe longer because a consult is always done. There are some contraindications such as uncontrolled blood pressure, Cirrhosis, Crohn’s Disease, Severe Diverticulitis and more. If in question, the therapist will as that you get a prescription from your medical doctor.
