Colon therapy, also known as colon hydrotherapy or colon irrigation, involves water being passed into and out of the colon. Often the therapy includes botanical additives, and the re-introduction of probiotics after treatment. Colon therapy is used to treat various bowel and digestive conditions. 
Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle irrigation of the colon, cleansing it of waste material by repeated, gentle flushing of warm, filtered water. It is the placement of water inside the colon for the removal of impacted fecal debris and waste water. By cleansing the colon of toxic chemicals, colonics may offer relief from a variety of disturbances.
Colon Therapy is commonly used as part of the treatment strategy for:
- gas and bloating
- skin problems
- cold hands and feet
