What is Colon Irrigation?

Colonic irrigation is a type of complementary medicine that uses filtered warm water to cleanse the colon in a gentle, painless and effective manner. A speculum will be inserted into your anus by the colon therapist, allowing a thin tube to be passed into your rectum. Warm water then passes through this tube and into the rectum, where it enters the colon. This procedure eliminates any faeces, mucus and toxins that have accumulated in your colon over time.
