Colonic Hydrotherapy

“The colon is the most neglected and forgotten organ of the body. Colon health emphasises prevention rather than cure. 
It is the most important step in maintaining or regaining vital health.”
- Dr. Bernard Jensen, DC, ND, Ph.D

Leading a toxic and acidic lifestyle can be the cause of many health problems such as headaches, aches & pains, body odour, poor concentration, skin problems, depression, lowered immunity, fatigue, constipation and weight issues.
Your colon is approximately 6 feet long and not only does it play a vital role in eliminating toxins and wastes from the body, it is also involved in absorbing vitamins and minerals in the blood stream. Can you believe that the average person has 1-6 kilos of toxic waste in the colon! Imagine for a moment what that could be doing to your body internally. Not to mention that 80% of your immune system also resides in the colon. Many times the real cause behind sickness and disease is the retention and reabsorption of these toxic wastes which creates major stress on the body in many different ways. Colonic Hydrotherapy involves the gentle infusion of gravity fed, purified, temperature controlled water into the colon through a disposable tube (thinner than a pencil) into the rectum. The gentle flow of water helps loosen and soften impacted faecal matter and waste that has built up on the walls of the colon, which then stimulates natural peristalsis (muscular contraction) and the release of stored waste from the colon.
Byron Bay Detox Retreats use the state of the art FDA registered and medically approved “Libbe” colonic hydrotherapy machine and your therapist is internationally trained and certified. With this we maintain the highest standard of hygiene and practice.

“If you are seeking health, and you have not found the answers to your recovery and healing, start here. Your intestinal tract is the origin of disease, and it is also the origin of your healing. I cannot emphasize enough how important the cleansing of your digestive system is, to your health “
- Dr. Joseph Rodrigo M.D

Your certified therapist will explain the treatment and in total privacy you will insert the lubricated disposable tube. There should be no pain or discomfort. You will lay back and relax on our colonic bed and be draped/covered during the whole procedure. The treatment will take about 40 minutes in which there will be a continuous filling up and releasing of the water and waste.
You may have your therapist stay with you and massage your abdomen or you may be left in total privacy. We assure your dignity is completely maintained at all times. There is no mess, no odour and many people find it a very relaxing experience with a wonderfully light and empty feeling afterwards.

“Colonic Hydrotherapy triggers a strong detox response in the liver, and a major cleansing reaction throughout the body”
- Daniel Reid, author ‘Tao of Detox

The many benefits of colonic hydrotherapy include increased bowel muscle tone, reduced stagnation of intestinal waste, reduced absorption of toxic waste, weight loss, clearer healthier skin, reduction of headaches & pain, relief from bloating, constipation & water retention, clearer mind & concentration, a healthier functioning digestive system and renewed energy & vitality.
During fasting and detoxification it is imperative to keep the bowels clear. Colonic Hydrotherapy speeds up detoxification and prevents the reabsorption of toxic substances in to the bloodstream.

“Every tissue is fed by the blood, which is supplied by the bowel. When the bowel is dirty, the blood is dirty; and so on to the organs and tissues….it is the bowel that invariably has to be cared for first before any effective healing can take place.”
