Colonic Hydrotherapy

Colon hydrotherapy [also known as colonics or high colonic] is a bowel enema of warm water, supplemented with special detoxification agents. Colonics have been highly controversial over the past decade; although the practice of colonics has been used for centuries. Such treatments, highly regarded by longevity practitioners have yet to gain the endorsement of any mainstream medical organization. This is partly due to the lack of studies completed to support theories.


Theory of Autointoxication

The theory of autointoxication is that stagnation of the large intestine [colon] causes toxins to form that are absorbed and poison the body. Some proponents even suggest that constipation causes hardened faeces to accumulate for months, or even years, on the walls of the large intestine and block it from absorbing or eliminating properly. This toxic undigested food and blood wastes are then reabsorbed by the body.

Dr. John Tilden stated in his 1930’s book -Toxemia Explained: The True Interpretation Of The Cause Of Disease :

"Auto-toxemia is the real culprit in almost all diseases and degenerative conditions”

He supported that toxins were the only cause of disease.

An excerpt from a more recent book - Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management by Dr. Bernard Jensen:

"The heavy mucus coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefaction. The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level. One autopsy revealed a colon to be 9 inches in diameter with a passage through it no larger than a pencil. The rest was caked up layer upon layer of encrusted fecal material. This accumulation can have the consistency of truck tire rubber. It's that hard and black. Another autopsy revealed a stagnant colon to weigh in at an incredible 40 pounds."

The Digestive Process

Most of the digestive process takes place in the small intestine, from which nutrients are absorbed into the body. The remaining mixture of food and undigested particles then enters the large intestine, for elimination and to absorb minerals and water.

Bowel habits of healthy individuals can vary greatly, although at least one bowel movement daily, is considered the norm.

Many naturopaths consider that up to 90 percent of all diseases are caused by improperly working bowels and recommend periodic fasting or cleansing.

Scientists have discovered 90% of the seratonin in the body is produced in the wall of the colon; along with a supposed second brain. I will leave you to investigate that claim further, however, it certainly could explain the ‘shitty thinking’ many people have.


Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment

Whilst procedures vary, then tend to follow a basic process.

  1. A tube is inserted into the rectum.
  2. The colon is filled with cool or warm water, sometimes supplemented with minerals to encourage breakdown of hardened faecal matter.
  3. After a waiting period of up to 3 minutes, the water and any fecal matter are drained through a second tube.
  4. This process is repeated several times in one treatment.



  • Promotes energy and wellness; particularly for those suffering from asthma, arthritis, sinus problems, chronic fatigue and constipation.
  • Better absorption of vitamins and minerals from food
  • Heightened sense of taste!
  • Toning of the bowel to help produce a better elimination.
  • Improved emotions

Most support of benefits is anecdotal, as little research has been completed in this area.


Risks & Contraindications

Infection from contaminated equipment

Harmfully altering the chemical balance of the colon; in particular extracting minerals such as potassium which are normally absorbed back into the bloodstream.

Treatment should not be undertaken with those with appendicitis, hepatitis and ulcerative colitis.


Colon Cleansing Kits

An alternative treatment to a colonic is using a Colon Cleansing Kit. A typical kit consists of eight-day intensive intestinal cleansing program, using two herbal formulas:

Digestive Stimulator - works gently to support normal bowel function. Typical ingredients include: Aloe leaf, Aloe Vera leaf, Cascara Sagrada bark, Chinese Rhubarb root, Triphala (Amla fruit, Chebulic Myrobalan fruit, Belleric Myrobalan fruit), Barberry root, Dandelion root, Fringe Tree root bark, Meadowsweet aerial parts, Plantain aerial parts, Ginger root, Fennel seed, Peppermint leaf, Fenugreek seed, and Licorice root

Toxin Absorber - consumed several times per day to assist absorption and draw hardened mucus build-up and faecal matter out of the intestinal tract. Typical ingredients include: Psyllium seed husks, Apple pectin, Ginger root, and Bentonite clay.

The kit is used in conjunction with liquid only fasting for the first 5 days. This is to avoid the Toxin Absorber binding to the food instead of the waste you are trying to remove.

Alternative programs are modified to avoid fasting, instead incorporating restrictive diets high in fibre [20-50mg a day], and can take up to 30 days.

Expected Results

Expect cleansing reactions similar to those normally associated with detoxification, such as: headaches, bloated feelings, constipation, abdominal pain and sore eyes.

NOTE: Cleansing reactions are part of cleansing and are not the same as "side effects" normally associated with medication.

Healthy Colon Diets

Adopting a diet high in soluble fibre helps move food through the digestive tract faster, which decreases the ability of carcinogens in the diet to manifest and lead to colon cancer. It also helps reduce cholesterol and helps control diabetes by improvinge blood glucose levels.

Fibre is found in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes and whole grains. Soluble fibre in apples, grapefruit, oranges, broccoli and carrots.
