A normal colonic treatment lasts around forty-five minutes. It consists of insertion of specific colon therapy equipment through the anus. A doctor or other qualified professional inserts a small speculum into your rectum. This speculum is attached to a plastic hose that is, in turn, connected to the colonic machine.
The colon therapist regulates the amount and the temperature of water coming from the machine. Water enters the rectum through the plastic hose and passes through the entire colon. You are filled with a specific volume of water, dependent on your personal tolerance levels.
The water induces wave-like contractions in the colon. This causes the fecal matter to pass out through the colonic hose and through the colonic machine into a clear plastic viewing tube. The water takes out old fecal matter (which may be hard and dark in color, parasites and mucous.
The colon therapist massages your abdominal area lightly during the colon therapy. This may help to loosen and dislodge any fecal accumulation from the colon walls. You will probably feel a warm sensation due to movement of water within your abdomen and the excretion of waste materials.
The amount of water used for colon therapy should be carefully adjusted so that it is appropriate for you. Excess water might make the process uncomfortable and even painful. If the amount of water used is less than optimal, it may push your colon to work harder. Done correctly, it encourages a normal level of peristaltic activity in your colon.
A single colon therapy treatment may not bring the desired results. You may need a series of colon therapy treatments. The initial treatment may expel more gas and mucous than hardened fecal material.
Some old, crusted-on feculent matter might only come out only during later treatments, especially where it may have been lodged there for many years. The entire process, if done properly, does not cause any pain or extreme discomfort.
