Why would I need it?


When the bowel becomes encrusted with stagnant faecal matter, the absorption of vital nutrients slows down and the bowel wall becomes a breeding ground for unhealthy bacteria.

The most common reasons for having Colon Hydrotherapy include:

Bowel Disorders: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS / Spastic Colon)

Bowel Training: Lazy bowel, chronic constipation

Digestive Disorders: Gastritis, food intolerances, bloating, diarrhoea

Health and Wellness: Many people choose to have a series of treatments when embarking upon a health, wellness or fitness programme, or as a general cleanse a few times a year.

Parasites / Fungi: Parasitic infection, candida, fungal infections

Skin Problems: Acne, eczema, psoriasis

Toxicity: Gout, headaches, halitosis


As the colon is one of the most diseased and stressed organs of the body, the reasons are quite simple and include:

  • The high consumption of sweets, sugars, fruits and juices that feed yeasts and other pathological organisms.

  • Eating low fibre foods containing additives, preservatives, pesticides and other chemicals also damage the intestines.

  • Low levels of digestive enzymes in the small intestine cause partially digested proteins and starches to end up in the colon, where they either rot or ferment. This causes the production of toxic chemicals that cause foul odours, gas and excessive bloating.

  • Overuse of antibiotics and over-the-counter remedies destroys the normal flora in the colon.

  • With busy lifestyles, people often ignore the call of nature to empty the bowel.

  • Hurried lifestyles, with fear and nervous tension, affect the functioning of the colon.

  • The presence of yeast, parasites etc in the colon.
