Colonic Hydrotherapy F.A.Q.
Does it hurt?
A colonic irrigation is not a painful treatment at all if given by a well trained therapist. A slight uncomfortable sensation of the stomach may occur when you have a bowel movement. The sensation is as if you feel you must go to the toilet.
How many treatments should I have?
This entirely depends on the person and their situation. Your therapist will go through your treatment with you, and recommend any additional treatments if necessary. Our professional therapists will never pressurise you to have more treatments than needed although usually a course of minimum 3 will give optimum results.
Are colonics treatments safe?
Yes they are. This is due to the fact that our system is a closed system and NOT a self administered treatment, but conducted in a hygienic and safe environment, by a highly trained therapist, who is by your side throughout the entire treatment. There is no damage to internal organs. The water used during your treatment is filtered, and administered under low pressure therefore eliminating the danger of bowel perforation. Additionally all our equipment is either disposable or sterilised before and after use. Our therapists have all undergone extensive training, and keep up to date with relevant legislature and undergo professional development on a continuous basis. They are there to help you improve your quality of life.
Can everyone have this treatment?
Most people can have colonics, but a thorough consultation will establish if there are any contra indications or reasons that that somebody should not have a treatment.
I have regular enemas, so I don’t feel i need a colonic irrigation?
Enemas are done at home and are self administered. They only empty the lower part the large intestine and water is held for a long time inside the colon which can be very uncomfortable. This process has to be repeated several times.
Colonic irrigation however, is administered by a trained professional and can hydrate and empty the whole of the large intestine. The treatment is 45 minutes and a series of small holds never goes beyond the uncomfortable threshold.
Is your equipment reused?
All our equipment is disposable and a new kit is used for every client. The whole treatment is highly sanitary and the room and toilet are cleaned and disinfected after every treatment.
Does it flush away my good bacteria?
Yes, both good and bad bacteria is flushed out during your colonic irrigation treatment. Water is not selective towards the good or bad flora. This is why a probiotic is given at the end of the treatment to introduce the good bacteria back into the colon. After this, only good bacteria will inhabit your colon.
I have heard bad stories about Colonic Irrigation
We understand the apprehension of most clients about the horror stories portrayed in the media about Colonic irrigation. Unfortunately, these stories arise from clients who visit cheap clinics where there are less experienced therapists who are offering treatments when they shouldn’t be. All our staff are thoroughly trained with many years of experience, and members of the top colonic associations in the UK. Also, clients who have bad experiences usually have treatments in the open system, which is largely a self administered Colonic treatment. It is a big machine with a strong water flow where clients do the entire treatment themselves, most often without any trained or skilled therapists in the room. This can be extremely dangerous as clients will have no idea what to do, what they are feeling or how to react in any given situation. We do not recommend the open systems at Pure Synergie. This is why we offer the Closed system, which is a real treatment, with a real skilled therapist administering the colonic. Our therapists never leave the room and is there only to make your treatment as relaxing and rewarding as possible.
How often can I have a treatment?
You can have a treatment every 48 hours if necessary. Clients who suffer from constipation or sluggish colon, need to have a treatment as close to each other as possible. As the faecal matter is soaked in the water, release can be much better, the closer the treatments are together. A course of 3 treatments is beneficial for every single person.
What’s my after care advice?
Clients should refrain from eating spicy and rich foods,alcohol and general excess food for 24 hours after the treatment. Light food with plenty of vegetables would be beneficial as well as introducing whole grains such as brown rice, barley and oats. Aim for more soluble fibers rather than insoluble fibers as this will be less harsh on the colon wall. Avoid artificial sweeteners and fizzy drinks.
A slight headache or fatigue may incur so try and have a relaxing day. Drink lots of water. Chew slowly. Normal bowel movements may take 1-4 days to resume due to the colon being emptied.
How can I expect to feel after the treatment?
Clients who have had a colonic irrigation have left feeling much better than expected, motivated to eat healthier,feeling cleansed,amazed at how much came out of their colon,wish they had done it years ago,and serious internal relief.
