Why Colon Hydrotherapy?

Consider these medical facts:

  • Colon cancer is a leading cause of death in Canada
  • Millions of dollars are spent annually on laxatives in Canada
  • Millions of Canadians suffer from bowel problems
  • Diseases and functional disturbances of the digestive organs are common complaints
  • Worms outrank cancer as man's deadliest enemy worldwide.

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy removes the fecal material that does not come out with your bowel movement, in a safe and comfortable atmosphere. It is strictly confidential and private. Our colon hydrotherapy units are closed systems that use filtered, temperature and pressure regulated water and the waste is channeled directly to the sewers.

Colon Hydrotherapy is a centuries-old therapy using water to eliminate fecal material that does not pass with a bowel movement. This can reduce colon spasms and re-tone the muscle of the colon, making its contractions and subsequent elimination more effective. Like any other muscle in our body, when stimulated to contract in a healthy manner it will become stronger, reducing the likelihood of spasm.

The nurse will do an abdominal assessment prior to starting the session. The entire 5-6 feet of your colon will be gently hydrated with the water to soften any accumulated fecal matter on the inner wall of your colon. We use the SLOW FILL METHOD, which assures you will have larger releases by strengthening your colon.

 It may take several HYDRATIONS (from 5-20 gallons per session), in order to GENTLY facilitate the release of the OLD FECAL MATERIAL. We use abdominal massage and encourage you to BREATHE to oxygenate the colon during the hydration, to improve the release. You will be totally relaxed, and comfortable. After your session, we will have a better idea of how many sessions you will need, based on your goals.

Is Colon Hydrotherapy safe?

Since the standards of practice are not to the highest level for all providers (both regulated and unregulated), there can be a risk of harm associated with initiating Colon Hydrotherapy for a client due to the fact that not all providers understand medical conditions, provide abdominal assessment protocols, or use proper equipment or hygiene standards.  Any combination of these factors creates a potential possibility of risk of harm.  Therefore at Golden Pheasant Tai Chi & Wellness, nurses are trained at the highest levels in the industry (at the Nurse Practitioner level) and have taken into consideration all factors enabling a safe and comfortable treatment.  This includes filling out an extensive intake form, a consultation, taking vital signs, a thorough abdominal assessment, providing colon hydrotherapy treatment using a low pressure, slow fill method with filtered water, and disposable equipment.  In some instances, clients are referred back to emergency or their medical doctor before we will initiate treatment.   Tip: Don’t sacrifice peace of mind and safety for cost.  Naturopaths and Medical Doctors are comfortable referring their clients to us since we are regulated by the College of Nurses of Ontario and are practicing safely with the highest standards in the industry.
