Colon Hydrotherapy was practised in Ancient Egypt. It consists of irrigating the colon using a sterile cannula that is applied via the rectum in order to detoxify and improve immune responses by optimising the functioning of intestinal flora. It is painless and can be used for any pathology in order to improve the body’s response to therapy.
Colonic irrigation is carried out with water treated with camomile that has sedative effects. Saprophytic bacteria such as lactobacillus and bifidobacterium are added to the water.
Generally, it is recommended to undergo the treatment once a year in order to maintain good health. It is used specifically to improve the quality of skin after antibiotic therapy, following the chemotherapy, in order to treat problems such as constipation and to prevent colon cancer.
