Colon Hydrotherapy at Gaia Retreat Center in Ubud, Bali
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Traditionally known as Colonic Irrigation, our trained nurses gently fill your colon with warm sterile filtered water through a small sterile rectal tube. When the water is flushed out, it carries with it any material that has built up in the large intestine(colon) such as waste matter, toxins and trapped gases.
We use highly filtered water which passes through two separate filters before being heated to the correct temperature. This filtered water flushes out more toxins out of the colon because of its absorbing effect on solid particles, chemicals and other matter.
How do toxins accumulate in the body?
Toxins accumulate in the body as a result of stress and consuming too much acidic food, such as sugar, white flour, alcohol, caffeine.
When the bowel becomes unnaturally acidic, it starts to protect itself by secreting a glyco-protein substance that lines the entire intestinal wall. This is known as mucoid plaque. This substance is what makes it hard for the body to absorb vitamins and nutrients, which could result in chronic malnutrition.
When the bowel becomes toxic, it may contaminate the blood, which in turn, may spread toxins to the heart, lungs, brain, muscles as it is delivering nutrients throughout the body. The liver is left to deal with toxic blood, and after several years of toxic buildup, the liver will become sluggish until it will no longer function. At this point, the toxins will begin to add up in other parts of the body. By doing a colonic cleansing, it will allow you to remove accumulated mucoid plaque in order to rebuild your bowel and your liver and protect yourself from disease.
How many sessions are recommended?
At Gaia Retreat Center, we offer a bespoke detox retreat program that has a specific number of sessions that follow a protocol.
How does Colon Hydrotherapy affect the Bacteria balance in my body?
Colon hydrotherapy does not flush all good or bad bacteria out of the body. Once toxins are remove from the colon, the beneficial bacteria have a cleaner environment to reproduce and multiply, therefore achieving a healthy bacterial balance.
Is Colon Hydrotherapy painful?
Some cramping may occur as the colon contracts to expel waste. Once removed, you will find the session therapeutic and relaxing!
Are there any contraindications to Colon Hydrotherapy?
Our nurses thoroughly check the suitability of each individual prior to starting any treatment. Unless you recently had colon and abdominal surgeries, hernias, high blood pressure and other conditions, it is perfectly safe to use.
What kind of diet should I follow immediately after a Colon Hydrotherapy session?
Following a colonic cleanse, the body may feel lethargic. Proper rest is important at this time to give your body time to rejuvenate.
Colon Hydrotherapy is not a cure, but a valuable procedure used to help the body for a wide variety of different colon-related conditions. By re-toning the bowel wall and improving colon functions, the entire body is able to function more efficiently and you will walk away feeling lighter and brighter!
- Take a probiotic supplement provided by our nurse.
- Drink plenty of liquids (purified water, juices, herb teas).
- Have a light vegetable soup for dinner in the next couple of hours.
- Avoid eating raw vegetables straight after the treatment. Steamed vegetables and raw fruit are fine yet need to be chewed thoroughly.
