Colon Detox or Colon Hydrotherapy, the process of cleansing the colon, is a method of rejuvenating the body. Besides promoting good colon health, it contributes to overall well-being. This is because it eliminates waste and toxins that accumulate within the body.

Colon Hydrotherapy, what is it?

Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as Large Intestine Cleansing, is an open system that uses pure water to cleanse chemicals, toxins, and accumulated waste in the large intestine and help them be expelled. It involves using purified warm water at a temperature of 37.5-38.5 degrees Celsius, which is the same temperature as the body. The water is slowly released into the lower intestine through a small-sized hose, stimulating bowel movement to facilitate the natural elimination process, similar to regular bowel movements.

How does Colon Hydrotherapy improve your health?

Colon Hydrotherapy differs from regular enemas as it is a gentle, clean, and safe method using medical-grade RO (Reverse Osmosis) water, similar to the water used for kidney dialysis in hospitals in the United States. It helps cleanse chemicals, toxins, and accumulated waste from the large intestine without using any chemicals, making your body ready to function in balance again.

Even if you have a well-functioning regular bowel movement, there may still be waste and toxins accumulated deep within the colon, which regular daily bowel movements cannot eliminate entirely. Colon Hydrotherapy helps cleanse the accumulated waste and toxins in the large intestine, promoting a clean and balanced environment.

Beneficial Effects of Colon Hydrotherapy

Who is Colon Hydrotherapy suitable for?

Colon Hydrotherapy, an open system experience, is extremely comfortable. With modern equipment, there is no pain during the process. It helps cleanse the colon and promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria within the intestines.

How is Colon Hydrotherapy performed?

Colon Hydrotherapy is a comfortable and memorable experience for most people. During a session (45 minutes), purified water at body temperature (approximately 36.5 degrees Celsius) is gently introduced into the body through a soft tube inserted into the rectum. This process stimulates the natural feeling of needing to have a bowel movement. The flow of water and elimination of waste from the body occur continuously during the session, enhancing the digestive and elimination processes of the large intestine, making them more efficient.

The Procedure?


Before undergoing a colonic irrigation session, you will meet with a doctor for a discussion and a general physical examination.


After the therapy session has proceeded for 15 minutes, a nurse will come in to check your vital signs and overall physical condition. Throughout the treatment session at HydroHealth, a well-trained colonic therapist or hydrotherapist will be present to take care of you in a comfortable and private treatment room.


The hydrotherapist will adjust the temperature and flow of water entering your body to ensure the most suitable and comfortable conditions for you.


Hydro Therapist will monitor you periodically, check your symptoms, and provide abdominal massage to stimulate better waste elimination. The specially designed bed used is tailored for ease and comfort during tube insertion and treatment.


Once the treatment is completed, the staff will serve you a beverage to boost energy and refreshment. Additionally, they will provide beneficial probiotics in capsule form to replenish good bacteria in the colon, as both good and bad bacteria are flushed out during the treatment.

How should one prepare before undergoing Colon Hydrotherapy?


It is advisable to have the main meal 2-3 hours before receiving the service.


If you are someone who enjoys drinking coffee, it is recommended to consume it 1 hour before receiving the service.


Individuals with chronic illnesses or high blood pressure should take their regular medication before receiving services.

You can do Colon Hydrotherapy as part of your regular health regimen, similar to going for a health course. For those who have never undergone the treatment, it is recommended to have two sessions per week for four to five weeks. For individuals who do the treatment regularly, the frequency depends on personal preferences and dietary habits. Some may do it once a week, while others may do it once a month or once a year.
The regular enema is typically done using chemical solutions to stimulate bowel movement or prepare the intestines for surgery. On the other hand, Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle, safe, and effective method that uses purified water to carry away various types of waste and toxins accumulated in the large intestine without the use of any chemicals.
Colon irrigation in an open system requires patients to control the flow of the colonic irrigation water and the depth of the irrigation themselves, limited to the central part of the colon. Meanwhile, in a closed system, experts control the pressure and volume of water, ensuring it reaches the entire colon.
For people who have constipation issues, it can lead to an accumulation of toxins in the body, resulting in problems like bad breath and body odor. Additionally, if one doesn’t have regular bowel movements, it may contribute to the development of hemorrhoids. Colon detoxification or colon hydrotherapy specifically addresses these issues and helps resolve them.
Self-administering colon detoxification at home may lead to errors, posing risks of contamination and infection. On the other hand, undergoing colon hydrotherapy with a professional ensures a higher level of safety. This is because the equipment used adheres to standards and undergoes sterilization. Additionally, experts monitor water pressure and volume throughout the procedure.
Many people, when they learn about the colon detoxification process, often misunderstand and think that it must be painful. In reality, before starting the colonic irrigation procedure, the staff applies lubricating gel around the irrigation tube, which helps minimize any discomfort when inserting the tube. However, one may still feel a slight sensation of fullness or mild irritation, but it is generally minimal.
If you want to undergo colonic irrigation with a team of specialized doctors using standard and safe tools and equipment, you should come to HydroHealth Detoxification and Wellness Bangkok. It is the largest detox center in Asia that uses a water purification process with an RO system imported from the United States. It comes with exceptional services rated 5 stars.
