Common Misconceptions About Colon Hydrotherapy

At VIVA Wellness, we are at the forefront of the wellness industry and pride ourselves in bringing the most advanced practices of colon hydrotherapy to Milwaukee. Our clients are passionate about wellness and are always looking to educate themselves. We strive to provide thorough education and inspiration to support you on your journey to becoming the best version of yourself.

Colon hydrotherapy is one service we receive lots of questions about and we understand! It’s a sensitive subject and new to many people. Here we’ll break down the most commonly asked questions.

Can my body become dependent on colonics?

It is impossible to become dependent on colonics. We use filtered water during our colonic hydrotherapy sessions. Many clients are surprised to learn that colonics actually help strengthen the muscles in the colon wall. This will help the peristalsis movement and you will be able to have more bowel movements on your own after the old matter is released.

Will my healthy gut bacteria be washed away during a colonic?

This is a common misconception about colon hydrotherapy. During a colonic, purified water is used to hydrate, dissolve, and transport solid waste out of the colon. It does not impact the mucosal membrane where the majority of your good bacteria colonize. Just as drinking water does not eliminate the bacteria in your mouth, colon hydrotherapy does not eliminate bacteria in your colon. In fact, colonics help re-balance your gut flora. Good bacteria cannot grow in a toxic environment, so by flushing out the bad, changing the diet, and taking probiotics, you can create a good and more supportive environment for the good bacteria.

How long is a colon hydrotherapy session?

For your first colonic, you should plan for approximately 75 minutes. Follow-up sessions will be approximately 60 minutes each.

Do I need to do anything special to prepare for my colonic?

We recommend avoiding caffeine and dairy products for 24 hours before your session. If you have a juicer at home or have access to freshly pressed juice we recommend having multiple juices in the days leading up to your appointment. Please come to your session on an empty stomach (no food 2-3 hours before your session and no liquids 30 minutes before your session).

How will I feel after my colonic?

Most people tend to feel amazing after their colonic session. Our clients report feeling lighter, clear-minded, and energized! If you are on the more toxic side you could have some general detox symptoms which include: headache, fatigue, or nausea.
