We understand that an image of having a tube (a really tiny one to be exact!) isn’t the most comfortable thought. So we get it when there are lot of questions about Colon Hydrotherapy. And the most famous ones are, is it safe? Does it have any side effects? The answer is, yes it is safe, and no it doesn’t have any side effects. But if you’re still not convinced, do read on!
In 2008, Danbury Hospital became the first hospital in Connecticut and in the U.S to offer colon hydrotherapy. In fact, colon hydrotherapy is used as an alternative prep for colonoscopy that doesn’t involved consuming laxatives. The hospital’s chief of the Section of Gastroenterology says that rather than using laxatives that result painful diarrhea or fasting, colon hydrotherapy is a more convenient option as it only involves using using warm filtered water to cleanse the colon. 3 years later, in 2011, the second hospital in the U.S, called Barton Memorial Hospital followed the same footsteps by using colon hydrotherapy as a preparation for colonscopy. According to an article by bodyecology.com, “2004 research published in the Herbei Medical Journal found Colon Hydrotherapy prep for a colonoscopy successful in 98 percent of cases”.
Another medical doctor and certified gastroenterologist, Dr Robert Charm, MD, clinical professor of medicine at the University of California said, “With patients for whom I perform colonoscopies, about one third of them (…) still show residual stools sitting in these gut mucosa pockets. Some have held onto the stool pockets for decades. A good cleanout by the use of colon hydrotherapy is an excellent treatment. I recommend that people undertake colon hydrotherapy for themselves to clean out the body pipes.”
A healthy body, starts from a healthy colon. So you decide.
