Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Everything you need to know about colon hydrotherapy, the procedures and
reasons why you should choose us as your colon hydrotherapy clinic.

Colon Hydrotherapy, Colon Cleanse and Detox?

What is Colonic Hydrotherapy or Colonic Irrigation or Colonics?
All these mean the same, basically a treatment of the colon with gentle and warm filtered water.
What is The Colon?
The Colon is also called the large bowel or large intestine. It is the final 5-6 feet of the intestine (except the last eight inches that is called rectum).
Why should I be concerned about my Colon?
The colon is our internal waste disposal system. We don’t want to really talk about it until our health becomes jeopardized.

Over time undigested food starts to accumulate in the large intestine and if we don’t make sure we clean it, it starts to putrefy and toxins get through the walls of the colon into the blood stream causing many of our modern diseases.
Can Colonics help with constipation?
Constipation many times is a first sign of serious health problems, indicating that our bowel doesn’t function correctly. The colon hydrotherapy treatment will not only clean the colon, but it also trains the brain of the colon to become normal again, achieving to be more regular. How many bowel movements are normal depends on the person: usually anything from after each meal to at least once a day (with occasional breaks). Anything more than that means a person is constipated.

As a result the inner diameter of the colon is reduced and the opening becomes narrower. As a result constipation and diarrhea will alternate. A series of colonic treatments will result in noticeable improvement.
Wouldn’t it be easier to use Laxative for Constipation?
“We have found that the use of laxative and cathartics are not only habit forming but decidedly destructive to the membrane of the intestines. That is why so many people start with mild laxatives and soon graduate to cathartics before they reach the point of no return” Dr Norman Walker in “Colon Health – The key to a Vibrant Life”
What colon hydrotherapy can help with:
  • Digestive System problems (bloating, diarrhea, constipation, flatulence)

Why should I choose Love Yourself Detox Center for my treatment?

What is a Colon Hydrotherapy Session Like?
A Colon Hydrotherapy session is a comfortable relaxing experience for most people. Most clients are pleasantly surprised that the treatment is nothing like their preconceived thoughts. After their first treatment, Clients usually look forward to future treatments.
Is Colonic Hydrotherapy embarrassing for ladies?
It is no more intimate than a bikini wax and more comfortable. After the first time it will become as natural as visiting the hairdressers. Your privacy will always be kept.
Can I have a Colonic during my period?
Yes. It is sometimes the best time.
Can I have a Colonic during Pregnancy?
We do not recommend it unless there is a very good medical reason. Certainly we would say no during the first three months and last three months of pregnancy.
Is Colonic Hydrotherapy embarrassing for men?
The treatment is no more embarrassing that visiting the doctor for a regular health check up.
How long does a Colonic Session take with The Colon Care Clinic?
For the first session, please allow one and a half hours as our therapist will need to discuss your previous medical history with you and advice on diet and treatment plan. Future session should take between forty five minutes to one hour.
Is The Procedure Safe and Sanitary?
Love Yourself Detox Ctr uses the Toxygen Colon Hydrotherapy equipment, which is a closed system. This is manufacture in USA and is one of the few colonic machines that has been approved by the USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA). All disposable tubes and the speculum is for one time use only and the therapist will show the sealed bag prior to opening.
How will I feel afterwards?
Most people feel cleaner, lighter, and healthier and rejuvenated after their treatment.
Can I drive afterwards?
Yes.
Can I go back to work afterwards?
Yes.
Is it necessary to have a special diet before /after my colonic?
We recommend that just eat light before and after the treatment and drink a lot of water. Please abstain from alcohol and spicy foods for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
How many sessions will I need?
This is something you should discuss with your therapist during your treatment. Generally most people will have a minimum of three sessions. In more severe cases six sessions would be recommended.
What do other people say about Colonic Hydrotherapy?
Dr Bernard Jensen (One of Americas foremost pioneering nutritionists).

“In the 50 years I’ve spent helping people to overcome illness, disability and disease, it has become crystal clear that poor bowel management lies at the root of most people’s health problems Knowing the ways of keeping the bowel healthy and in good shape is the best way I know to keep away from the grip of disease and sickness”…


Dr Norman Walker (Author of Colon Health – The Key to a Vibrant Life).

Finally, what can I do to help fight the epidemic of colon cancer? Encourage family, friends and associates to talk about the Colon and Colon Cleansing and Colonics. It is one of the least talked about subjects and as such
problems are simply “swept under the carpet” and the colon becomes the most neglected part of the body. Thus a large percentage of our population are setting themselves up to reap the sad reward for this neglect.
What is our advice on long term maintenance?
Colon Hydrotherapy, used in combination with proper nutrition and regular exercise, can be a powerful tool for maintaining optimum health throughout your lifetime. That is why we have full detox packages and provide juicing plans and dietary advice. On its own, colon hydrotherapy won’t make a magic. It will help temporarily, but you will need to also take control over long term habits. As your colon is now clean of toxins and bad bacteria, your cravings will diminish, which will also help you to make those long lasting changes. It worth it! You worth it! You need to LOVE YOURSELF!
