Results of Hydrocolontherapy

The functions of the colon have been neglected for a long time because it’s mistakenly believed that it was used mainly for storage of waste materials waiting to be eliminated. Inside the bowels, in communication with the external environment and then abundantly exposed to contamination, it takes the incredible association between intestinal mucosa and bacterial flora, which is essential for the body to ensure a state of health.
The bacteria so-called “friends”, in exchange for the hospitality and the intestinal nourishment provided by the environment, synthesize important vitamins and connect to the mucosa forming an impenetrable barrier to bacteria “enemies” and undesirable substances. Thanks to the latest research, the intestine has conquer a central role in the health of our body. Maintaining a balanced intestinal ecosystem is fundamental to our health and is defined eubiosis.


Through the Hydrocolontherapy (HCT).

Many mistakenly think that HCT is a simple enhanced enema.

It’s instead of a doctor measure which consists in a complete washing of the large intestine through which removes dead skin cells, mucus, harmful bacteria and fungi in such a way as to facilitate the flourish and growth of the bacterial flora considered friendly, capable to carry out all the beneficial features that we synthesized.

The method, in experienced hands, is simple, painless and odorless.

With the patient lying on his left side, arrange gently through the anus into the rectum a plastic cannula (a disposable speculum) that is connect to a device using a closed circuit composed of two disposable plastic tubes, a smaller one for the water inlet and the largest one to allow the outflow of the washing liquid. Once you introduced the cannula (disposable speculum), you fix it with the appropriate belt after positioning the patient in the supine position, which is usually maintained for the entire duration of the treatment.

The device, connected to the hydraulic system, is equipped with a filter able to eliminate bacterial contamination or impurities from the water which is introduced into the colon at a temperature and flow appropriately regulated. The intestinal washing is combined with an external massage on the abdomen. The water introduced relaxes gently the colon and stimulates the contraction of the bowels that eliminate it through the unload tube.

Alternately filling and emptying the large intestine occurs a purifying bath and promotes an exercise that helps to improve intestinal functions. The duration of each session is variable from 30 to 60 minutes and it depends on the type of indication and the subjective response.
