Constipation eased with Colonic
Uncomfortable bowl movements eased with Colonic
Hard to pass a bowel movements are connected to being dehydrated and are the most common in a patients suffering from constipation.
IBS can be contributed to dry faecal matter within the the large intestine. The small hairs of the large intestine become coated in faecal matter which then dries, these hairs that push faecal matter out through the sphincter become less affective and this is where constipation starts.
With patients dealing with these symptoms receiving a colonic hydrotherapy treatment can be a little uncomfortable since the dry faecal matter can cause air pockets in the large intestine this can be a little uncomfortable.
What is colonic irrigation?
Colonic irrigation is a complementary therapy. It involves flushing waste material out of the bowel using water. The procedure is also known as colonic hydrotherapy.
Colonic irrigation is carried out by colonic hydrotherapists. They are not regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), but they may be registered with the Association of Registered Colon Hydrotherapists (ARCH).
Before having colonic irrigation, the therapist should ask you about your medical history. During the procedure, you will lie on your side while water is passed into your bowel through a tube inserted into your rectum (back passage). The water circulates through your colon, and waste products are passed out of your body through the tube.
The procedure lasts about 30-40 minutes, during which around 60 litres of water is introduced into the rectum.
