What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle infusion of water in and out of the colon reaching all four to five feet, promoting overall health.  The system is designed to allow evacuation of the contents during the administration of the procedure.  The pressure, temperature and flow of water are safely regulated throughout the procedure.  Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure, but a valuable procedure used to assist the body with the reversal of a wide variety of health conditions that are known to stem from improper diet and elimination habits.
According to I-ACT (International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy), Americans who suffer from bowel problems are spending more than $400,000,000 every year on laxatives.  Unlike chemical laxatives which encourage dependency, colon hydrotherapy actually “re-educates” the bowel to function normally. 

History of Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon lavage actually first recorded in 1500 B.C. in the ancient Egyptian document, Ebers Papyrus, which dealt with the practice of medicine.  Hypocrites (4th & 5th century B.C. recorded using enemas for fever therapy.  Galen (2nd century A.D.) also recognized the benefit of enemas and was a proponent of the use of enemas therapy of that age. Pare, in 1600 A.D., offered the first distinction between colon hydrotherapy and the popular enema therapy of that age.
Colon therapy since the turn of the century has experienced periods of reaction.  The factors that contributed mainly to the ambivalence primarily were due to the practice of colon hydrotherapy by the untrained and unskilled, which was very detrimental to its professional growth.  When the therapy gained the attention of such physicians as James A. Wiltsie, M.D. and Joseph E.G. Waddington, M.D., great value was placed on the therapeutic benefits of this modality.  The philosophy attributed to colon therapy by certain physicians of this era was depicted by Dr. Waddington:  "Abnormal functioning of the intestinal canal is the precursor of much ill health, especially of chronic disease condition.  Restoration of physiologic intestinal elimination if often the first, but too often ignored, important preliminary to eventual restoration of the health in general.  "Dr. Wiltsie contends that "our knowledge of the normal and abnormal physiology of the colon, and of its pathology and management, has not kept pace withe that of many organs and systems of the body.  As long as we continue to assume that the colon will take care of itself, just that long will we remain in complete ignorance of perhaps the most important source of ill health in the whole body”. Today with modern technological advancements in colon hydrotherapy instrumentation, particularly with regard to safety and skilled and educated hygienists, colon hydrotherapy has become a valuable adjunctive modality.  Combined with sound nutrition, exercise, and a positive mental and spiritual outlook, colon hydrotherapy can play an important role in achieving and maintaining vibrant health.
