Colon hydrotherapy could be a solution for those suffering from constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, flatulence and digestive disorders. The therapy is about cleansing the colon with highly purified warm water and flushing out the accumulated debris and toxins. It is a safe, painless and hygienic procedure. Also called colon irrigation, celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Madonna, Leonardo DiCaprio and Gwyneth Paltrow among others have endorsed the procedure in aiding their healthy lives.
There are a variety of Hydro Colon Therapy Equipment’s available in the global market. The ‘Shuddh Gravity DU-01’ at Shuddh Colon Care is designed with UV water purification and multistage filtration unit that purifies the water before it passes through the rectal tube and gently in to the colon. Safe, purified, temperature controlled water flows through the tube into the colon by the force of gravity.
As the colon fills with warm water, there is a feeling of wanting to eliminate, which occurs naturally. Only disposable single-use rectal nozzles are used to ensure absolute hygiene for the patient. The procedure is done under medical supervision and patients are advised to avoid a meal within two hours of the procedure. Each session lasts approximately 30–35 minutes. An odour exhaust system ensures the area remains odour free.
The number of colon hydrotherapy sessions necessary varies from patient to patient and depends on primary concerns and patient’s health condition. Each patient is medically assessed prior to the procedure and each procedure takes approximately 40 minutes. “We have received a tremendous response from the public for colon hydrotherapy. Nearly 80 per cent of the requests are to treat constipation, flatulence, bloating and symptoms of irritable syndrome.
We combine colon hydrotherapy with necessary lifestyle modifications, good nutrition, pro-biotics and digestive enzymes for long term benefit and the results are very encouraging,” says Dr Prasad, director, Shuddh Colon Care. “We have done more than 2,000 therapies with a good success rate. We are keen to tie up with doctors who would like to collaborate with us,” adds KS Rajagopal, director (operations).
The therapy relieves one of constipation, bloating and flatulence, symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Besides improving metabolism and boosting immunity levels, the procedure gives on the feeling of well-being due to the elimination of toxic bacteria. Colon hydrotherapy also improves the natural process of contraction of the muscles.
