Colon therapy, colon irrigation, detoxification therapy, colon hydrotherapy or enema is the cleansing of waste accumulated in the colon (the major part of the large intestine) following the processing of food, through the administration of water, herbal solutions, enzymes, or other substances such as coffee.

Unfortunately, we only realize too late that a critical point has been reached and the colon no longer functions under normal parameters.

How it is done
Hydro-colon therapy involves a hygienist or hydrotherapist irrigating the colon by inserting plastic tubes through the rectum and into the colon. A machine based on a gravity-driven pump sends large quantities of liquid into the colon. After that, the therapist will massage the abdomen to help move waste material. The procedure is repeated several times. Compared to enemas that only clean the colon segment close to the rectum and use up to 1 liter of water, hydro-colon therapy manages to clean the entire large intestine. Coffee or herbs may be included in the treatment.
