Colon Hydrotherapy

What is colon hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy is an extended and more complete form of an enema. Colon hydrotherapy extends beyond the rectum to cleanse the entire large intestines. A gentle water pressure is inserted into the colon via a disposable speculum with a half of psi pressure recommended by Edgar Cayce. The patient  lies comfortably on their back feeling relaxed. There is no pain involved. As a matter of fact the treatment is very relaxing! The therapist monitor's the temperature as well as the pressure of the water without any assistance of the patient. It is very important that the patient remains relaxed and comfortable throughout the session and that the therapist remains present during the treatment. Colon hydrotherapy is a closed system which eliminates waste matter through the instrument and out the drain line avoiding any offensive odor while maintaining the clients dignity.


Why colon hydrotherapy?

Somebody once asked Edgar Cayce, does everybody need colon hydrotherapy? He answered in a "reading", everybody needs an internal bath sometimes.

Through years of eating processed foods the peristalsis slows down which results in the accumulation of plaque on the inside of the walls of the intestines. This plaque prevents nutrients from absorbing into the bloodstream and it also reabsorbs the toxins into the bloodstream from the exiting plaque. This will destroy the delicate acid-alkaline balance in the intestinal system, thus causing most diseases. An acid millieau attracts and promotes the growth of bacteria, candida, fungi, and parasites. This is why cleansing of the intestines is of the utmost importance to keep the immune system strong. So we can fight these invaders from the inside.


Most common symptoms of a dis-functional colon are:

  • Constipation
  • Bloated-ness
  • Slight to severe constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Feeling moody and / or depressed
  • Carbohydrate and sweet cravings
  • Frequent yeast and urinary infections in women
  • Fungus on the nails
  • Skin problems / acne
  • Psoriasis


Frequency of treatments

Dr. Norman Walker as well as Edgar Cayce recommended an initial series of 6 to 12 colonic treatments performed once or twice per week. Years of malfunction cannot be possibly reversed in one or two visits. It is my experience of 30 years of practicing colonic irrigation treatments that the above recommendation works! It also has to be combined with a good nutritional program as well as a supplemental program. It is important to cleanse the colon with a series of colonic irrigations!


The skin is the second largest elimination organ of the body. When there are problems in the skin that means that the first channel of elimination, the colon, is completely overloaded. The liver is affected as well. We will use liver flushes as well as herbs and homeopathic remedies to detoxify the liver, the colon  and skin. It is very important to work with a specific diet depending on the individual persons needs. Oftentimes people with skin problems are allergic to cheese, hydrogenated fats, white flour, and sugar especially in combination. A saliva and allergy test is highly recommended. The person afterwards has to follow a very specific diet in combination with colon cleansing, herbs, and digestive enzymes.

It is very helpful for any skin problems to use the sauna. Sweating at high temperatures will eliminate a lot of poisons via the skin as well as chemicals and metals. Two to three times a week is recommended. Hot and cold showers are also helpful to improve any skin conditions. To activate the lymph system even further, Birgit suggests to also do dry skin brushing, platzas, and massages. Women need to be tested for hormonal imbalances as well as candida. The underlying cause of all skin issues are miasms (genetic predisposition encoded in the genes that is inherited from the ancestors two generations or further back). It can be worked with using homeopathic remedies.
