Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as a colonic, is a method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of medication. By introducing filtered water into the colon, similar to a common enema, the waste is softened and loosened. Controlled water pressure provides hydration, which activates the natural muscular contraction that removes waste material out of the colon.
The colon is an important organ of elimination and has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. The removal of waste can encourage better colon function and regular elimination. A healthy digestive tract helps support a healthy immune system. Colonics can also be used as a same-day prep for a colonoscopy or when otherwise prescribed.
Ultimate Wellness Centre uses the Angel of Water, a premiere colon hydrotherapy FDA medical device. It’s a simple, safe, comfortable and hygienic way to irrigate the entire length of the colon. A typical session lasts about 40 minutes and feels like a normal bowel movement.
