Why I Choose Colon Hydrotherapy: My Experience and Insights

Colon what?


Some of you may wonder what kind of treatments I am doing these days, so here you go. One of them is so-called colon hydrotherapy. It is a therapeutic procedure that involves flushing the colon with fluids to remove waste and toxins.

Controversial? Perhaps. For some. It used to be controversial to me too until modern Western medicine failed me and made my health condition worse than it ever was. 


After years of on-and-off corticosteroid treatments, I started to wonder… Why do alternative treatments usually stir a heated conversation, yet such a powerful immunosuppressant isn’t controversial? Why steroid-based medication is so widely prescribed in both oral and topical form, and no one hesitates? Just because it works?

Sure it does, but it also causes a lot of side effects and related health issues, which no one really likes to talk about. Especially not the doctors prescribing them. So I will mention them for you:


1. Weight gain (fluid retention and increased appetite) 2. Osteoporosis

3. High blood pressure

4. Mood changes (mood swings, irritability, anxiety, or depression)

5. Insomnia

6. Glaucoma and cataracts

7. Suppressed immune function

8. Hyperglycemia (raised blood sugar levels)

9. Adrenal suppression (leading to adrenal insufficiency when the medication is discontinued)

10. Skin changes (thinning of the skin, stretch marks, increased susceptibility to bruising)

11. Gastrointestinal effects (irritation of the lining of the stomach and risk of gastrointestinal bleeding or ulcers)


I suffered from at least 6-7 of them. Yet every time my skin flared up I left the doctor’s office with another bunch of steroids. 


 

Now back to the colon hydrotherapy. What are the possible side effects of that?


1. Dehydration and electrolyte imbalance (if not enough fluids are consumed before or after the procedure)

2. Bowel perforation or infection (if the procedure is not performed correctly)

3. May disrupt the natural balance of bacteria in the colon (if proper diet is not followed)

4. Abdominal discomfort or cramping (which usually goes away within a day)


I have done 3 treatments so far, and suffer none of the above. What have I “suffered” so far instead?


1. Weight loss (4kg in 2-3 weeks). 

2. Improvement of gastrointestinal issues (e.g. less bloating, pain, overall discomfort after eating certain foods)

3. Healthier bowel movement 

4. Increased energy levels

5. Decreased brain fog

6. Clearing of the skin (extremely slow in my case, but I am slowly starting to see some improvements!)

7. Improved digestion


Some medical professionals express concerns about the safety and effectiveness of colon hydrotherapy. But you know what? I don’t care anymore. I do believe in science, and my geeky brain always wanted to support Western medicine, but now I am slowly changing my mind… I do believe that "All disease begins in the gut" and our knowledge about the gut microbiome and how it controls our bodies is in its infancy. Modern medicine may be (and sometimes definitely is) helpful and life-saving in certain cases. But when it comes to long-term, chronic illnesses, it fails to provide answers.



A healthy and happy gut


*When seeking colon hydrotherapy ensure that the procedure is performed by a trained and licensed practitioner in a safe and sanitary environment.


**After my hydrotherapy sessions I always do the IV treatment to support the healing process. If you are considering giving colon cleansing a try, always consult with a professional to find the safest and most suitable way.
