Important Terms Dealing With Colonic Irrigation

Performed at spas and outpatient clinics, colonic irrigation is the process of flushing your colon to remove built-up fecal matter. Proponents of colonic irrigation argue that eliminating this impacted stool helps to detoxify your body. Before talking with prospective practitioners about irrigation services, become familiar with these key terms. Understanding them will help you select the most qualified professional for a safe, beneficial experience.

  • Intestines - Organ that serves as the canal that carries waste from the stomach to the anus for elimination. The intestines are divided into two parts: the upper small intestine and the lower large intestine.
  • Anus - The opening at the end of the intestines, through which solid waste exits the body in the form of feces.
  • Bowel - Another word for the intestines. Some people use the word bowels to just describe the large intestine, but the term correctly applies to both.
  • Rectum - The end of the large intestine that is about eight inches in length. The anus is located at the end of the rectum.
  • Colon - The portion of the large intestine that leads up to the rectum at approximately 5 feet long.
  • Colonic Irrigation - Process of cleaning the colon and rectum through the use of filtered water, also known as: a colonic, a high colonic, colon lavage and colon hydrotherapy.
  • Hydrotherapist - A professional who has training in techniques that cleanse the colon; the practitioner who performs colon hydrotherapy.
  • Enema - Injecting water into the body to clean just the rectum. This procedure does not cleanse the entire colon and can be performed at home using special kits.
  • Enema tube - The plastic tube inserted through the anus into the colon to administer the water for a colonic irrigation.
  • Speculum - Device used to open up and widen the anus to make it easier to insert the tube.

    To clean out the colon, an organ of the body that’s part of the large intestine, some people undergo colonic irrigation. This procedure is thought to flush the body of toxins due to unhealthy diets over the years. It’s also thought to help with weight loss, constipation, bloating, and skin problems. The colon is a part of the large intestine, through which waste passes on its way to the rectum. Also called colon hydrotherapy, colonic irrigation is an alternative therapy that is said to restore normal bowel function. Many alternative health care practitioners prescribe this treatment in conjunction with traditional medicine. You can receive colonic irrigation at health and wellness spas, which may also offer massages, hair and beauty treatments, and body wraps. Medical clinics also sometimes perform colonic irrigation. Always talk to your doctor before undergoing this procedure. Many alternative health practitioners believe that stagnant waste in the intestines can hinder absorption and thus, the proper elimination of food, saying that this may lead to the generation of parasites and other organisms. You can get this detox treatment done on an outpatient basis and it doesn’t take very long at all. Practitioners may massage the stomach and abdomen area to encourage the flow during hydrotherapy. The actual treatment resembles an enema, which cleanses the intestines of waste. Many Internet sites are devoted to exploring the benefits and drawbacks of colonic irrigation and enemas. You may also find many sites that explore the possible benefits of acai berry water as a natural cleanser. Your primary care physician or doctor can recommend specialists who perform this natural treatment.
