Frequently asked Questions
Here is our list of frequently asked questions about Colonics! Enjoy. Feel free to submit a question below if you would like us to add it to our list.
For those who have IBS or know somebody with irritable bowel syndrome, you know will know it’s the doctors way of saying “we don’t know what’s going on with your digestive system, and there’s not much we can do to help”. Which can be really really frustrating!!
Now IBS is different for everyone, some people with IBS get chronic constipation, some people get chronic diarrhea, some people get a combination with both. Quite often is associated with bloating as well, and these are digestive symptoms that can really interrupt your life, and stop you from doing the things that you want, or going where you’d like to go, or eating the foods that you want to eat.
I have found over the years by combining colonic irrigation with some herbal parasite cleanses, we’ve been able to give the digestive tract a really good clean out, and get rid of any fecal matter that is stuck in the pockets along the sides of the colon or that has been sitting in the colon festering and becoming a breading ground for parasites and bacteria.
These parasites and bacteria can cause a whole bunch of different problems, and I’ve found that when people have colonic irrigation sessions and take parasite cleansing herbs at the same time they get relief from the IBS that they’ve had for many years.
Yes! Children can do colonics.
The tube we use is so small and noninvasive that is suitable for children of all ages.
The youngest client we’ve ever had in the clinic was 4. Children come in with their parent or guardian, the adult fills in the form and can assist the child with inserting the tube if needed. (usually if the child over the age of 5 or 6 they just pop them in themselves)
It’s a very small tube and it only goes in a cm or two so most kids don’t find it much of a hassle at all.
Once they are seated on the machine, they are covered with a blanket and lay back on a pillow. Once they are used to the sensation most of them will either read a book or play on their iPhone or iPad and they enjoy the treatments just as much as us adults do.
It’s very straight forward and your therapist will explain the easiest way to do it.
The tube is about the size of a drinking straw and only enters the base of the rectum a few cms.
In very rare cases where clients have mobility issues the therapist can assist if needed. However, most people prefer the privacy of self insertion.
For your first appointment leave 90min.
this gives you time to find the clinic, fill in a form and have a really good chat to your therapist about what is happening in your gut.
From there, the therapist will show you the equipment and explain how everything works.
Once you are settled and the treatment has started you will be on the machine for about 45 minutes.
Sometimes people finish up a little earlier if they feel “done” or sometimes people need a little longer than 45min, and that’s ok too.
In terms of how many sessions you will need. Everyone is different but for a full colon clear out we recommend 10 sessions within 30 days. It may sound like a lot but your colon is 2 meters long and can store kgs and kgs of waste matter. So people get best results and feel amazing when they do 10 in 30.
Best way to find out how many sessions you need is to talk to your colon hydrotherapist.
For best results, The closer the better. This makes sure the colon doesn’t have time to clog up again and the treatment will go higher and clear out more waste with each session.
The rule of thumb is no more than 4 days apart. However if you are feeling strong and healthy it is perfectly fine to have sessions several days in a row.
Your therapist will know what’s best for you so have a chat to them during your treatment.
Because shit happens!!
People work, traffic sucks and many people also have family commitments.
To make sure you can commit to the 10 sessions in 30 days we are available for appointments 6am – 11pm everyday.
Nothing! – you can just come as you are. We also take walk ins – so if you are in the area and want to give colonics a go, rest assured you can just come on down.
Some clinics suggest fasting or drinking fresh juice, tea etc. – it’s good, but not necessary. You will get results either way,
It’s great to make sure you are drinking plenty of clean filtered water before, during and after your appointment – so that’s what i usually tell people when they ask what they can do before their appointment.
The average person should be drinking 4 litres per day,
