Colon Hydrotherapy 2017-07-07T16:47:51+00:00

The purpose of colon hydrotherapy is to achieve optimal bowel function through the restoration of fluid, solids and gas balance, the removal of excess waste and also improving the tone of the large bowel. This benefits absorption, assimilation and elimination which are instrumental in maintaining health and wellbeing of the body and mind.

More About Colon Hydrotherapy

How does colon hydrotherapy work?

Colon hydrotherapy stimulates the colonic muscles to work more efficiently, to work at their optimum. It is not a treatment which needs repeating every week; although it is fair to say, many clients with chronic constipation and other conditions may need more than one treatment.

How is colon hydrotherapy given?

You lie down on your side on a comfortable couch, covered at all times by a soft fleece or bath sheet to preserve modesty. It is important to relax during the treatment. Sara will then explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have.

Warmed, filtered water slowly passes into the colon via a narrow tube inserted into the rectum. When it reaches as far as it can it flows out through the waste tube. This is a closed circuit treatment, there is no odour, nor will you be able to see anything.

Abdominal massage (most people love this bit) is used to stimulate the colon to release and to identify and soothe any problem areas.

Colon hydrotherapy is safe and gentle and takes approximately 30 – 40 minutes. You will be treated in private, your dignity is assured at all times and Sara will be with you throughout for explanation and advice.

After the treatment, you will be able to discuss the outcome with Sara to plan a treatment and health regime which suits you.

Myths About Colon Hydrotherapy

There are many rumours and myths about colon hydrotherapy, through her experience as a qualified colon hydrotherapist Sara has heard most of these myths, and tries to address some of the most common issues on this page.

Not if carried out by a doctor or registered nurse who has also undertaken the recognised training. Unfortunately there are people who practise colon hydrotherapy who may not have undergone the rigorous training and supervisory programme, however Sara at Osalo has so you can be sure that you will receive a safe treatment.

Nothing that Sara does is painful.
Sara will put you at your ease, explain the procedure to you and reassure you that your privacy and dignity are of paramount importance and you are covered up at all times.
A good colonic hydrotherapy treatment will wash out old faecal waste leaving the healthy gut more able to produce more intestinal flora.
Sara will take delight in saying goodbye to you when you are restored to excellent health.

Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment Advice

Pre and Post Treatment Advice

Increase water (still & clear) intake to two litres daily.Dehydration will make you feel lethargic, tired and maybe dizzy. Please remember if the weather is hot and/or you are exercising vigorously, you will lose even more water and salt than usual in your sweat and this will need replacing. If you want a more accurate assessment of your daily water consumption divide your body weight in pounds by 40, this number is the number of pints of still, clear water you need in a day.

In the 24 hours preceding your treatment you should try to eat and drink easily digested foods and liquids such as fruit or vegetable juices, fruit smoothies or soups, preferably using organic and seasonal produce. Reduce processed foods, caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, high fat, high salt and highly refined sugar foods. Try not to eat for two hours before the treatment.

It’s recommended that you eat plain, simple foods for a day or so following the treatment. It is probably not a good idea to eat highly spiced foods the evening of your treatment.

Following your treatment choose from; organic chicken, turkey, salmon, egg or sweet potato oven baked or grilled with steamed organic vegetables or salad. Fresh homemade vegetable soups are soothing and nutritious.

Live, organic yoghurt served with manuka honey, ground nuts and seeds, sprinkled with ground cinnamon is a really nutritious and delicious way to end the day (and it is not a bad way to start the day either!)

Try to relax as much as you can. Listen to what your body tells you and try to comply where possible. Sometimes you may feel full of energy and other times you may initially feel quite tired after the treatment.

Following your treatment today, try to eat slowly, chewing each mouthful 20-30 times. Do not chew gum and avoid carbonated drinks – all these encourage air into your tummy, as does drinking and talking while you are eating.

To help expel trapped wind, try:
• Massaging your tummy clockwise.
• Laying on your right side, drawing your knees up.
• Getting on all fours, with your head down and your bottom up.
• Exercise. Go for a brisk walk.
• 1-2 teaspoons of peppermint tea 20 minutes before you eat, then a cup of fennel or ginger tea 20 minutes after you have finished your meal.

 

Osalo’s Gas Buster recipe – Take a 1″ piece of fennel bulb, trim, wash and chop it, take a piece of fresh shaved root ginger and a large handful of washed fresh mint leaves, juice all three together and drink immediately.
