View Full Version : Colon hydrotherapy = how many enemas?
07-16-2008, 08:13 PM
I am not particularly keen to have colon hydrotherapy, due mainly because someone else would be involved in the process. I am however keen to clear away anything that may still be lining my intestinal wall, so I would like to use an alternative, and hope that at least one exists.
Enemas is the first and most obvious choice. Is it possible to replace colon hydrotherapy with enema treatments, without compromising treatment quality? I am fasting on green juices, at the moment, so, I guess, now is the ideal time to sort this thing out.
What are your thoughts?

Hi Infinitus -
I think enemas definitely do some good. I would say doing 3 in a row (same day) of 4 quarts each (or whatever amount is comfortable) would be close to a colonic. See what kind of results you get.

Thanks for the reply.
I found the link below, and it seems there are a few risks involved with performing enemas oneself. I am feeling a little unsure about the whole thing, now!
The difference between helpful and potentially harmful enemas lies in the amount of water injected and the frequency of use. Using a cup or two of water to induce a bowel movement may eventually cause dependency, will not strengthen the colon and may after years of this practice, result in distention and enlargement of the rectum or sigmoid colon. However, a completely empty average-sized colon has the capacity of about a gallon of water. When increasingly larger enemas are administered until the colon is nearly emptied of fecal matter and the injection of close to a gallon of water is achieved, beneficial exercise and an increase in overall muscle tone are the results.

Good morning! I interpret that article to be about only using a couple of cups (like the fleet enemas) over a long period of time. It goes on to say that cleansing the entire colon (with 2 or more quarts is generally the approach) with be beneficial.
Go slow and easy and do what feels right. I have started doing these on a regular basis (had colonics before as well) as Matt Monarch has a theory that the more raw you are for a length of time (I have been 100% for 5 years), the more you need them as you continue to detox.
I think hydrotherapy is a wonderful experience as long as you connect with the therapist and have a treatment plan. I did 10 sessions in one year and it really really changed me.
I also can say that there are colon cleanses out there that have helped me a lot.

I think the best thing to do is find a hydrotherapist and talk with them about your questions. That might give you the most clear idea about the best decision for yourself.
The colon is oh so important and also demanding!
