FAQ ABOUT HYDROTHERAPY
WHAT DO I WEAR FOR MY TREATMENT?
Depending upon the type of treatment you are getting here are some suggestions:
Constitutional Hydrotherapy - This treatment is done on the skin of the torso and back so you will likely just need a bottom that you don't mind getting a little wet. Many people choose to bring a bathing suit to change into for the treatment. Rest assured that you will never be exposed and we keep our treatment rooms at a very comfortable temperature
Colon Hydrotherapy - It's best to wear something comfortable to your colonic treatment. You will be given a gown to change into and asked to remove the clothing from your lower body. Only the necessary area will be exposed for treatment. The room will be kept at a comfortable temperature throughout the treatment.
WHAT PREP IS NEEDED FOR COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
This question frequently comes up for first-timers to colonic irrigation therapy.
Eat lightly and drink plenty of water the day before your treatment
It will generally be better if you haven't eaten at least 1 hour prior to treatment for your comfort
Having a normal bowel movement prior to the treatment can be beneficial but is not necessary since the treatment focuses on that very thing!
Expect to bare you behind to the doctor but know that you will be covered and comfortable throughout the treatment
IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY DANGEROUS IN ANY WAY?
As with any treatment there are risks. Colon hydrotherapy has proven over many years to be safe, gentle and effective. Some important contraindications do exist. For instance, if you have active ulcerations or infections colon hydrotherapy is not for you due to risk of further damage to the colon.
