What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as colonics, colon cleanse, or colon irrigation, is a safe and effective method of removing toxins from the large intestines without the use of drugs. Colon hydrotherapy has been practiced for centuries with the earliest records of basic enemas dating back to 1500 B.C in ancient Egypt.
Here at The Salt Room Orlando we use the LIBBE system. The LIBBE is a FDA registered, open system device that uses a double filtration system. It is a controlled method of cleansing the colon using a gentle, gravity fed flow of water. The water is infused gently into the colon by a sterilized, disposable rectal nozzle that is about the size of a pencil. As a result, the compacted waste that has accumulated in the colon over weeks, months or years of toxic exposure is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis.
Why do I need a Colonic?
Unfortunately, the average person does not have a healthy colon. We are constantly bombarded by toxins in our everyday lives. They are in our food, air, water, skincare, household products, medications, etc. Some of these toxins are unavoidable but one of the main reasons we are so burdened by poor health is our nutrition.
The typical American diet consisting of high fat, lowfibre, refined sugar, processed food high in preservatives and toxic chemical additives. As these foods move through the colon, fluids are absorbed during the digestive process and the remaining waste hardens and clings to the colon walls where it putrefies.
A healthy colon will be moving this waste out through natural peristalsis 2-4 times a day but sadly, the average persons is having less than 2 bowel movements per day. When this occurs and the colon is not functioning as nature intended then these toxins can then be absorbed into your blood stream and can lead to autointoxication or self-poisoning and negatively affect your physical, mental and emotional health, leading to very serious weight and health problems.

What to expect?
Having a colonic should not be a scary experience. At Salt Room Orlando we aim to create a safe, relaxing and comfortable environment for our clients.
When you arrive for your colonic your Certified Colon Hydrotherapist will show you to your private treatment room. If this is your first time with us we will have a quick consultation to establish what your needs, expectations and any concerns you may have regarding your treatment. We will take some time to educate you on the treatment benefits and show you the equipment.
When we are ready to start your treatment, your therapist will explain to you how to get onto the LIBBE bed and insert the rectal nozzle.
The nozzle is only pencil thin and should not cause any discomfort. You will be left in complete privacy while you get changed and perform the insertion yourself. You are provided with a drape to cover yourself with and once you are comfortably in place you will buzz your therapist who will come in and start your treatment.
During your treatment, your Certified Colon Hydrotherapist is there to assist you through the entire process, or if you prefer we can leave you in complete privacy. There is no mess and no odor during your treatment so you can lay back and relax.
Your Colon Hydrotherapy treatment will last around 40-45 minutes. Once you finish your treatment you will be offered a refreshing drink.
