What Does Colonic Hydrotherapy Involve?

Colonic hydrotherapy is a saying which describes using enemas for therapeutic healing, and not for more medical procedures like treating constipation. However, there is an ongoing debate between people that practice alternative colonic hydrotherapy and the various medical establishments, with most opponents saying using therapeutic enemas can be harmful. Nonetheless, various colonic hydrotherapy practitioners are started to spring up on many cities, in addition to a cottage industry that supplies home practitioners.

The idea behind this type of hydrotherapy is to remove excess waste, and removing numerous built-up toxins from a person’s system. This is done by using water into the colon with an enema, this is said to clean the walls of a person’s large intestines, remove any excess waste which can promote parasitic infestation, or cause non-specific symptoms of general ill health. Depending on which regimen is used, the liquid used can be supplemented with dietary supplements, herbs or salts.

To date, there is no scientific evidence that supports the claims made by proponents that practice this type of hydrotherapy, so it is considered by medical practitioners to be pointless, the medical establishment firmly believe a person’s bowels are self-regulating and self-cleaning, however, this is not always the case with many people. People that have undergone this treatment swear by it, saying they feel better and healthier, so it really is down to personal choice.

The theory of this hydrotherapy is known as auto intoxication, where it is said that some foods will sit in the intestine and slowly rot, which can result in various putrification-based symptoms. This theory harks back all the way to Ancient Egypt, and has slowly made its way down through the ages, early studies supported the theory of this, and most mainstream physicians do in fact support this, saying it is an extremely beneficial therapy. During the early-20th century, medical studies showed very little evidence supporting autointoxication.
