During one-hour colon hydrotherapy appointments, patients don a hospital gown and lie upon a padded treatment table on their side. The therapist gingerly inserts a disposable plastic speculum into the rectum, then has the patient roll into a comfortable position on their back. Through the valves, tubing, and Dutch canals of her gravity-fed closed system, 100-degree, quadruple-filtered water ebbs and flows through the length of the colon, stimulating peristalsis and flushing out stale waste matter.
Modeled after the colonoscopy prep program at Danbury Hospital, the colonoscopy prep begins by quaffing 10 ounces of magnesium citrate and popping four laxative tablets the night before the colonoscopy. The next day, patients come in for the hydrotherapy treatment described above, timing the session about two hours before their doctor's appointment.
The Boulder Center for Vibrant Health
"I have candles burning, I have beautiful music playing–it's actually quite remarkable how relaxed a person gets," says Michele Hambach, CHT, describing the atmosphere in her colon-hydrotherapy treatment room at The Boulder Center for Vibrant Health. Warm neck wraps and abdominal massages add to the sense-soothing nature of Michele's colonic sessions, while upgrades such as a hot-towel massage renders more relaxation than cuddling with a terry cloth TV.
In an effort to make colorectal cancer screening a less melancholy experience, Michele offers a pre-colonoscopy treatment that takes the place of swigging a gallon of NuLytely solution and spending the day on the commode.
