Colonic Irrigation: The Ultimate Detox
What is Colonic Irrigation?
A Colon cleansing procedure that involves flushing the colon (large Intestines) with fluids to extract harmful waste.
Colonic hydrotherapy helps to undo the damage caused by the processed western diet, in addition to providing relief from health conditions including irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, skin problems, depression and wheat & yeast intolerances.
Colon hydrotherapy works wonders for our physical well-being as it ensures that our digestive system is working efficiently.
This treatment available at Inner Health can restore the balance of gut flora in the colon, leading to weight loss and a stronger immune system. Having a colonic can also help with: Allergies, Constipation, Diarrhoea, Flatulence, Candida Sluggishness and Bloating.
The Process of Colonic Hydrotherapy
It is common for participants to be curious about what comes out during a colon cleanse and have questions about colonic before and after-effects.
The process of colon therapy takes around 45 minutes and utilises modern equipment specially designed for it.
During the procedure, warm filtered water is entered into a patient's colon via a small tube known as a speculum.
This tubular apparatus is gently inserted into the rectum around an inch and a half-inch deep.
As the water gently enters into the rectum, the pressure of the water and temperature are closely monitored.
The filling up and emptying of the colon is a repetitive process done in combination with abdominal massage. When the treatment is completed, customers are encouraged to go to the toilet.
"I was slightly worried for my treatment, but I needn't have worried as I was in good hands. Jane was just so kind, I relaxed immediately and we were soon chatting like old friends. She was incredibly understanding and helpful and none the worse for wear. I am happy to report, there have been improvements in my symptoms. Thank you so much, lovely ladies"

The Importance of Colon Health
A combination of a sedentary lifestyle and a fibre-deficient diet can cause issues with our metabolism and lead to impaired intestinal functions in the body. Resulting in people suffering from conditions like constipation, diarrhoea, flatulence, and even bloating that indicate the presence of waste, its fermentation, putrefaction by bacteria, and yeast in the digestive tract.
In the absence of an efficient colon cleanse, these issues cause microbes to generate toxins like acids and gases that lead to inflammation. These gut-harming organisms cause harm to intestinal tissues, nerves and even glands that are a part of the gastrointestinal tract.
Since toxins can be absorbed through the walls into the body cells, tissues, and organs, they can impact the brain's normal functioning - leading to cognitive, mood, and behavioural problems.
Why do we need Intestinal Cleansing?
Many of the foods we eat every day contain poor nutrients and toxic substances. We make matters worse by adding extra 'free radicals' (unstable molecules that attack our cells) to our food by unhealthy cooking methods such as deep frying or grilling on an open fire. We intentionally ingest other toxic substances such as alcohol, nicotine and stimulants, such as caffeine and other drugs with various effects.
After these foods and substances are digested, our liver must work overtime to detoxify all the foreign toxic substances so they can be excreted through our kidney and skin. Some of the toxic substances escape the detoxification process of the liver, especially for people who have compromised liver functions.
We clean our face everyday, but people don't think whether or not they need to clean their intestines. Our intestinal tract is like a plumbing system, when we put poor nutrients and toxins through them, the colon eventually becomes clogged with harmful waste.
This is why Colonic Hydrotherapy or Irrigation is highly beneficial - It is a gentle internal bath using warm purified water that can help cleanse the body of faecal deposits & toxins which accumulate on the walls of the colon. It is very safe - water is introduced at a low pressure so there is no danger of bowel perforation. All equipment is disposable. Colonic Hydrotherapy actually improves the tone of the colon.
