Colon hydrotherapy helps you clear out your system, providing detoxification and weight loss.

Colon hydrotherapy involves rinsing your colon gently with warm water to remove gas, mucus, and fecal matter backing up the intestine. The staff infuses the water through the rectum. The process of colon hydrotherapy is completely safe, and no chemicals or drugs are used.
You need a well-functioning, clear bowel for good health. A clear colon absorbs nutrients more readily. Colon hydrotherapy also reshapes and tones the colon, an essential part of your digestive tract.
When the colon is overloaded with waste — some of it toxic — it limits your body’s optimal function. The modern diet, rife with animal protein, processed sugar and fat, and preservatives and chemicals, backs up your colon. Plus, daily stress and lack of exercise further cause your colon to suffer.
When waste sits in the colon, it has the potential to reenter the bloodstream and negatively affect your cells. This leads to an increase in inflammation that diminishes your energy, puts you at risk for chronic disease, and prevents weight loss.
Dr. Duncan may recommend colon hydrotherapy if you have conditions such as:
Colon hydrotherapy decreases inflammatory compounds in your body to give you an overwhelming sense of well-being.
Most patients find colon hydrotherapy completely tolerable. You will notice pressure and a bit of discomfort when the speculum first enters your rectum, but this sensation is short-lived.
You then feel water flush through your colon, which can cause mild stomach cramping and short bouts of light nausea. This is due to the loosening of toxic waste from the walls of your bowels.
Colon hydrotherapy should be performed by a qualified medical practitioner, like those at Delta Medical Weight Management Center.
The practice sterilizes all equipment and uses disposable items when possible. The equipment is FDA-approved, and the water goes through an advanced filtration process prior to use.
