The origins

Hydro-colon-therapy is a detoxification technique. Since ancient times, gut lavage was the basis of every therapy. In various medical cultures, it is still a very common practice.


Why is it important to do a bowel cleansing?

Most people in today’s world suffer from diseases caused the so-called “intestinal dysbiosis”, or an imbalance of the intestinal bacterial flora. Our eating habits have changed; what we eat to attain the energy necessary to live is no longer comparable to what our grandparents ate. Genuine food, rich in essential vitamins and minerals, cultivated in a healthy environment has given way to food, treated or even pre-cooked. Over time, the intestinal flora is weakened, and the intestinal wall becomes permeable allowing viruses, bacteria and toxins to enter the organism (leaky gut syndrome).


What is it and what are the consequence of a leaky gut syndrome?

The leaky gut syndrome (leaky gut syndrome) is a set of symptoms attributable to an alteration of the permeability of the intestinal mucosa to toxic substances and microorganisms.


You might have:

  • Chronic functional disorders: diarrhoea/constipation
  • Candidiasis intestinal and urogenital
  • Dermatological disorders (dermatitis, psoriasis etc.)
  • Allergies, including bronchial asthma
  • Rheumatic diseases (polyarthritis, fibromyalgia, gout etc.)
  • Pain: headache, migraine, chronic fatigue, neuralgia, hypersensitivity to meteorological changes
  • Susceptibility to infections due to a reduction in the efficiency of the immune system


What is the purpose?

Hydro-colon-therapy allows the body to get rid of waste and toxins and create a new functional balance.


How does it work?

The technique is very simple and painless. The patient remains lying in a relaxed position on a cot. A “speculum” (catheter) attached to a tube carrying water is inserted. The water is pleasantly warm, and throughout the treatment lasting 45-60 min., a pleasant massage is carried out on the abdomen. Based on clinical history, an insufflation of ozone may be added during the last phase of the treatment, greatly increasing blood oxygenation.



Is a specific diet necessary after the treatment?

We recommend light food during the day of therapy. In the weeks following the treatment, the diet will be supplemented with probiotics.


How many sessions should you do?

Depending on the patient’s clinical history, we usually advise two to six sessions.


Is it painful?

The treatment is virtually painless. After performing the therapy, the patient can safely return home without any problems.


Are there any contraindications?

At Ortho-bio-med, before performing colon-hydro-therapy, the patient is duly subjected to the visit with the medical ultrasound exam to rule out any underlying conditions that may discourage the performance of this therapy.
