What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe and effective method by which waste and toxins are removed from the large intestine without the use of drugs. Pure, filtered, temperature controlled water is introduced into the colon by means of a sterile, disposable rectal tube to loosen and soften waste resulting in the complete evacuation of fecal material through natural peristalsis.
Patients choose colon hydrotherapy as an alternative modality to help alleviate health concerns:
- Acne fatigue
- Body odor
What Might Cause of These Symptoms?
There are several factors that need to be considered when searching for the root cause of elimination issues. Often times the causes can be an intestinal flora imbalance, a poor diet, insufficient water intake, stress or toxins.
A colon hydrotherapist’s first goal is to assess what the patient’s needs are, identify an individual plan of action and then provide support through any lifestyle changes that the patient desires to make. Let’s take a closer look at some of the root causes of elimination issues inside.

What are Toxins?
Toxins; such as heavy toxic metals, solvents, and pesticides can contribute to human disease. Toxins are commonly found at our home, at our job, in our foods, in our air, in our water, and even in utero.
“IT IS NEVER A QUESTION IF YOU ARE TOXIC, BUT IT IS A QUESTION OF HOW TOXIC?” – DR. DOUG CUTLER
While our bodies are designed to detoxify and cleanse toxins on their own, we are finding that our modern, on-the-go lifestyles often prohibit us from doing our part to help our bodies maintain themselves. Most of the time, we don’t realize that toxins are affecting us until we develop a chronic disease after years of subtle and chronic exposures to them.
Why Colon Hydrotherapy?
Before you make changes to your body it is always a good idea to properly cleanse and prepare it for the nutrition you want to provide it.
Picture trying to move nice new furniture into a house that has not been cleaned in months and has an old sofa taking up valuable space. That wouldn’t be an environment conducive for healing.
Colon hydrotherapy speeds ￼your body’s natural detoxification and cleansing processes by removing the waste and toxins from your colon while stimulating the body’s own healing abilities.
What if I Have Always Had Digestive Issues?
Some patients have thought “this is just the way I am.” While it may be true that you have always been prone to digestive issues it doesn’t mean that you have to live with them for the rest of your life. For example, if constipation is a symptom that you have suffered from since early childhood it would be significant to consider what were your mother’s bowel movements like? What was your diet like growing up? What was your stress level like in your home or school? Answers to questions like these can give light to what a patient needs to regain proper bowel function and overall wellness.
Multiple Sessions are always suggested to ensure a patient receives the maximum benefit of colon hydrotherapy. Most people report feeling lighter and an overall sense of well-being after just one session but when a symptom like constipation has developed or as recommended by a doctor more than one session may be required.
To achieve maximum cleansing benefits, patients are recommended to have a series of 12 sessions over a 3-month period. If this is not possible then we strongly recommend a series of at least the first four sessions.
What is a TDP Mineral Lamp and how does it work?
TDP Mineral Lamp is a medical device, which comes under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Class II as a far-infrared heating device. This can be added to your Colon Hydrotherapy session to enhance detoxification.
TDP is an acronym for “Teding Diancibo Pu” which loosely translated means special electromagnetic spectrum.
The premise of the lamp is that the far infrared (below visible light) emissions increases microcirculation and loosens fascia to accelerate the natural healing processes of the body.
What are the benefits in using a TDP Mineral Lamp?
• Relief from pain
• Relief from arthritis
• Restores Qi (energy life force)
• Promotes microcirculation and Detoxification
What can Benefit with the TDP Mineral Lamp?
• Chronic inflammation
• Irregular menstruation
• Skin conditions
• Edema from strains and sprains
What Do I Need To Do To Prepare?
During the day before your appointment, we suggest that you drink at least 8 glasses of water and to keep your diet moderately light. Fasting is not a prerequisite but please avoid eating anything two hours prior to your session.
Making Colon Hydrotherapy part of your health regimen can be a simple way with proper nutrition and exercise to effectively achieve and maintain your optimal health. It can be a powerful tool to jump-start your journey back to wellness or keep you at your best. We have seen it change our lives and we are passionate about helping others do the same.
