COLON CLEANSING IS SYNONYM OF A HEALTHY COLON
There are many pre-conceived ideas of what colonic hydrotherapy is and we are going to try to enlighten you as to what is actually involved in the treatment. What we do know is that after your first colonic irrigation treatment you will feel brighter, lighter, revitalised and cleansed from within.
THE BENEFITS OF COLON HYDROTHERAPY
Colon irrigation treatment totally detoxifies the colon from deterioration over the years and the toxins and build up which happens over time. It is a very quick, sanitary and effective treatment.
There are many benefits to colon cleansing – primarily we see the treatment as more of a prevention and ‘spring cleaning’ of the colon to make sure that nothing nasty builds up which can potentially cause major health issues further down the line.

HOW DOES A COLON WORK?
The colon treatment involves passing purified water through a small tube, into your colon. When the colon has the water inside, this exercises and tones the bowel. This aids peristalsis and the natural removal of toxins which have a harmful effect on the body and impede many of its processes, and unnecessary waste. Old substances and solid faeces are removed from the intestinal wall.
The removal of these toxins and waste will result in your body being able to function much more efficiently. You will be more able to absorb nutrients and water, digest food, repair itself more readily, and therefore you will have increased energy, with a healthier glow – looking great from the inside out.
The health of the colon reflects the health of the entire body.
Having a healthy colon = a healthy person.
You wouldn’t ignore your car’s MOT to ensure it doesn’t break down, so likewise you shouldn’t ignore the health of your body. Colon hydrotherapy is about maintaining and prevention and people are wising up to the fact that we need to MOT our bodies regularly to prevent major health issues happening in the future.
Colon hydrotherapy is the most beneficial treatment you can give to your body, by far.
About the Colon
Many people don’t know it, but the colon (also called the large intestine) plays a crucial role in your general health and wellbeing.
Did you know that:
80% of your immune system is made up of the colon
Over 90% of the general population carries parasites in their colon, some people carry around as much as 8lbs worth every day!
Irritable Bowel Syndrome, constipation, bloating and a lack of energy could all be due to a sluggish and under working colon.
Mydetoxdiet offer a wide range of treatments and detox diets and cleanses to support a healthy lifestyle which reap multiple benefits for the recipient.
Please get in touch to talk to our experienced and qualified Colon Hydrotherapist or our in-house nutritionist to discuss how we can help to make you feel better from the inside out.
Here at The Greenwich Spa we care about your comfort and safety so we use the newest Colon Machine on the market – the Herrmann Hydromat – it is made in Germany, of excellent build quality and with over 25 years of experience.
It has the highest safety thanks to proven quality and the most modern technology.
BEFORE A COLON HYDROTHERAPY TREATMENT
A course of 3 Colon Hydrotherapy treatments over 2-3 weeks is recommended. A course of treatments ensures that the colon is properly cleansed and all old and impacted waste is removed.
Please ensure that you are properly hydrated prior to your treatment by drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day leading up to your colon. Adding Liquid Chlorophyll (available in our Greenwich store or on our website) to 3 glasses of water a day will increase hydration levels
Please only eat light meals on the day of your treatment.
The results of your first colon treatment can vary dramatically. For many people, the initial treatment is primarily about re-hydration and beginning to break down the old and impacted waste using a combination of warm water and abdominal massage. Once the initial treatment has been applied, then after several colonics the colon can be cleansed more efficiently. It really varies person-to-person.
If you are serious about making a healthy kickstart for your body, then we recommend the Cleanse and Recharge Plan.This plan includes the recommended 3 Colon Treatments plus the recommended pre and post treatment supplements from our Mydetoxdiet range to increase detoxification through the colon from your very first treatment.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING A COLON HYDROTHERAPY TREATMENT?
We will begin your colon treatment with a thorough one-to-one consultation regarding your health history before you will be asked to put on a gown and paper underwear. When you are ready to begin, your therapist will ask you to lie comfortably on your side, on the bed. The therapist will put you at ease and once you are relaxed and comfortable, a small, lubricated speculum will be carefully inserted into your bowel through the rectum. this is not painful and only takes seconds to do – some people do not even notice it. The speculum is attached to a tube which connects to the Colon machine.
This machine allows filtered water which is temperature controlled, to flow through the colon at a safe and controlled rate. During your treatment, which is tailored to your individual requirements, the therapist may alter the temperature of the water to help remove the impacted matter and encourage movement of waste. You will feel something during this process but it is not uncomfortable or painful. Peristalsis action (normal wave-like muscle contractions which move food through the digestive tract) is triggered by the water which allows you to expel water with faecal matter back through the tube and hygienically away, with no foul odours. This faecal matter is flushed out via a transparent pipe which crucially allows the therapist to monitor what is being expelled. The therapist may also gently massage your abdomen to help dislodge impacted faecal matter and help the process move along. All of the equipment we use is disposable and hygienically prepared just before your treatment to ensure 100% cleanliness and sterility.
AFTER A COLON HYDROTHERAPY TREATMENT
Common effects from people who have received a Colon Hydrotherapy treatment from us include:
- Feeling brighter and lighter
- Bloating is noticeably reduced
- Weight Loss as a result of the removal of old and impacted waste from the colon
- Skin is clearer
- Eyes are brighter
- A increase in energy
It may take a few days to resume regular bowel movements seeing as there has a been a change within the environment of the colon. This is not a problem and is in fact evidence that a positive and healthy change has occurred.
Additionally – your body has absorbed a lot of water during the treatment and so you may feel an increased need to urinate and again this is a good sign as it shows your body has been fully hydrated and will aid in the flushing out of toxins.
Please drink several glasses of water after your treatment to continue your body’s natural detoxification process of the kidneys and to fully flush everything nasty out.
Not to consume alcohol or any toxic or unhealthy food for 24 hours after your colon treatment. Plant-based (vegan) food is recommended as it is full of nutrients and not heavy on the body. Why not pick up a green juice or shake from our shop for a great vitamin boost.
Taking a course of probiotics to replenish your internal flora. It is inevitable that the good as well as the bad bacteria will be flushed away during this treatment so therefore this needs to be topped up to ensure that your immune system remains in top condition.
Detox Diets/Raw Juice Cleanses and Colonics go hand-in-hand
We really recommend having a colonic whilst on one of our detox programmes. This is a very thorough and effective way of detoxing your body and a chance to kickstart a new healthy lifestyle with a clean slate. You will get the nutrients and benefits of the diet and these work even more effectively when you have a cleansed colon which is now able to absorb the nutrients more effectively and improves your body’s natural detoxification functions. To really detox fully, why not include an Iyashi Dome treatment where you can sweat out toxins and burn up to 600k cals a session. Our ***detox*** includes the full package at a discounted rate.
