Whilst many people have heard of Colonic Hydrotherapy, not all are aware of how an experienced practitioner uses Variable Water Temperature to improve bowel function during treatment.
A widespread and popular misconception about Colonic Hydrotherapy is that water is pumped out of the bowel during a treatment. This is untrue. Water is allowed to flow in and it is the Nervous System response of the Bowel being full that triggers Peristalsis, which leads to evacuation. It is therefore the natural body response of having a full Bowel that we are repeatedly stimulating to stimulate the cleansing required. If someone has a Bowel that isn’t functioning properly, it will simply fill with water and fail to evacuate. This is why Colonic Hydrotherapy does not lead to a lazy Bowel and where the ability to vary water temperature can be so effective.
By cooling the water temperature, this causes the Bowel muscles contract. With a Hypotonic Bowel, we can cool the water to stimulate the Bowel to contract a little and then warm it again to stimulate it to relax. Repeated warming and cooling by a highly skilled practitioner and within strict parameters stimulates contraction and relaxation, and in turn stimulates Peristalsis.
The ability to influence Bowel behaviour in this way is something that can only be achieved by a skilled and experienced practitioner.
Colonic Hydrotherapy is not just about emptying a bowel; the aim is to achieve a well-functioning Bowel.
