Colonic Hydrotherapist



What is a Colonic Hydrotherapist?

A Colonic Hydrotherapist is a trained, alternative medical health practitioner who ‘flushes’ out the colon of their patients using warm water. 

The warm water removes faecal matter (poop) and other impurities that may be lining the inside of the colon. It is believed that this cleansing helps the patient feel healthy but a lot of medical doctors do not support this alternative treatment.

The Colonic Hydrotherapist inserts a sterile tube up the anus (bum) of the patient and then gently flush warm water up the tube.  The warm water loosens the poop inside and it gets flushed out.

Colonic Hydrotherapy is believed to assist those suffering from various ailments, such as:

  • Constipation
  • Flatulence (farting)
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Fatigue (tiredness) etc
