Colonic Irrigation (also known as colonic hydrotherapy) is the gentle infusion of warm filtered water into the large intestine to help cleanse it of old faecal matter, gas, mucous and parasites. A healthy colon is essential to a healthy body. Conventional diets of today, comprised of refined and processed foods, high in saturated fats and low in natural fibre, coupled with sedentary lifestyle contribute to a multitude of bowel disorders and health problems.
