Why should I clean my colon?


Your tissues are only as clean as your blood

and your blood is only clean as your bowels.

Therefore by cleaning your bowels you purify the blood and then

the blood detoxifies the tissues.

The elimination of undigested food and other waste products is equally important as the proper digestion and assimilation of food.

The very best diets can be no better than the very worst if the sewage system of the colon is clogged with a collection of waste and corruption. Dr Norman Walker



THE BLACK SNAKE: That's what my familiy call this long thick black rubber like matter that passes after many colonic irrigations or it will pass on the 3rd or 4th day of fasting in conjunction with twice daily colon cleansing. "The heavy mucus coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefaction. The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level. This accumulation can have the consistency of truck tire rubber. It's that hard and black." Everyone has this in their system, no one is exempt, the older you are the longer, heavier and blacker it is. The only way to remove it is via colon cleansing or fasting. It may take several colonic irrigations before it passes.

Frequently Asked Questions about Colon Hydrotherapy


 Colonic Wellness Clinic Village Medical Centre

No 2A Dodson Ave, Milford, Auckland

Is Colon Hydrotherapy safe and comfortable? 

Our standards of hygiene are extremely high. Cleaning and sterilisation of the necessary equipment is done as standard procedure. We use specially designed stainless steel equipment which is thoroughly sterilised after each use so there is no risk of cross-infection. The treatment itself is very clean anyway but we make sure to disinfect the treatment room after each session. The safety and comfort of our clients is our top priority.

The water is introduced at a low gravitational pressure so there is no danger of bowel perforation. The Brunelle method allows for continual control over the water pressure and temperature at all times.

You will fully maintain your personal dignity . You will be in a private room with only your therapist, who is completely aware of the sensitivity of a Colonic procedure and will help you feel at ease. After the gentle insertion of a small tube into the rectum, you are completely covered. The mess and odour sometimes present during an enema simply does not exist with a Brunelle Colonic treatment.



How long is the tube? 

The 'tube' is a lot smaller than people imagine! The speculum has a diameter of around half an inch and is only inserted around 3 inches into the rectum. The speculum is inserted and removed very gently and slowly and is specially designed to avoid any pain or discomfort.



What exactly does a treatment involve/how is it done? 

Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle treatment during which warm water is introduced into the bowel. As the water is released, it flows out, providing a gentle cleansing effect upon the bowel wall. This gentle flushing of the bowel is repeated over a period of around 40 minutes. 

All you have to do is lie comfortably on the bed, and you will feel a warm sensation in the abdomen. As the water enters the bowel, you will begin to feel 'full' and as the water is released, you will feel a sensation of release and at the end of the session you will feel cleansed and "lighter" than before your treatment.


People describe this as not just feeling lighter in weight, but in lifting their mood also. 

Many do actually lose a little weight during the treatment as many pounds of waste material may have accumulated in the bowel.

Just one colon hydrotherapy session is equivalent to having several regular bowel movements. Further sessions can be even more substantial as older, hardened, impacted faeces are dislodged from the colon walls.



Can I have a Colonic if I am on the pill?

Yes - a colonic treatment does not interfere with the use of the contraceptive pill.



Can I have a Colonic if I have my period?

If you have strong period pains and you don't feel well enough to come then try to avoid making your appointment during your period. If it is not so bad, then it can actually be a very beneficial time for a colonic as it will help the release of toxins and waste. Therefore for most clients, it is best to come even during your period.



Are there any conditions where a colonic is NOT recommended? 

We would not recommend having a colonic during pregnancy. As this method of colonic irrigation activates the colon, which in turn will stimulate the organs of the body, it is possible that toxins can be released into the bloodstream and may pass to the womb before they are released through the colon.

However, occasionally there are exceptions. If the expecting mother is very severely constipated it is the better option and it is administered in a different way, to take account of this condition.

It is also not recommended to have colonic treatment for at least 6 months after colonic surgery.


Why not just use enemas, suppositories or laxatives instead? 

Enema, suppositories and laxatives do have their benefits and uses however they do not provide a substitute for colonic irrigation. Enemas and suppositories are useful for emptying only the rectum (the lowest 8 to 12 inches of the colon) - colonic irrigation helps to clear far deeper into the colon. Laxatives are designed to relieve temporary constipation. However, optimum colon cleansing is achieved most effectively by colonic irrigation.



Won't a colonic get rid of all the beneficial bacteria in my colon? 

The flora should not be disturbed anymore than having several normal bowel motions. 

It may wash out some good bacteria but at the same time, it washes out lots of bad bacteria enabling the beneficial bacteria left behind to flourish. In a healthy person the good bacteria will reproduce within 2-3 days especially now that the environment is cleaner. In cases of candida or when antibiotics have recently been used a probiotic supplement may be recommended. 

My doctor says I shouldn't have it done!

Ask your doctor why. Take note of all the reasons given by your doctor and then we can answer your questions.



Will a colonic deplete the electrolytes in my colon? 

No - A 1990 study published in the Journal of Natural Medicine, entitled "Effects of Colon Hydrotherapy on Serum Electrolytes" reported that no patient experienced any clinically significant symptoms or disturbances.

In 1988 the National College of Naturopathic Medicine did an in-depth study of seventeen patients doing three colonies a week over an extended period of time. Their conclusion: Colonies produce no appreciable change in electrolytes.


What will colonies do to the colon?

A Colonic is used to accomplish the following:

- Cleanse the colon: Toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Even debris built up over a long period is gently, but surely removed in the process of a series of treatments. Once impacted material is removed, your colon in rejuvenated and can begin again to function as it should.

- Exercise the colon: The build up of toxic waste weakens the colon. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristalsis (muscular contraction) - the process by which the colon naturally empties itself.

- Reshape the Colon: When there are problems in the colon, they may alter its shape, which in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water can help to eliminate bulging pockets of waste and narrowed constrictions which will inevitably help the colon to function.

- Stimulate Reflex Points: Every system of the body is linked to the colon by reflex points. The Brunelle method of Colonic Irrigation stimulates these points, helping to rectify problems in that part of the body.

Will a Colonic clear up my skin?

The skin is the largest external organ of elimination. If the functions of the colon, kidneys or liver are impaired, the skin will be overloaded in order to eliminate these extra toxins resulting in various skin conditions. Cleansing and healing the colon reduces the burden placed on the skin as well as the other organs of elimination: lungs, liver and kidneys. The skin can clear up once proper elimination is achieved.

Will I lose weight?

A lot of people do actually lose a little weight during the treatment as many pounds of waste material may have accumulated in the bowel over the years. 

Just one colon hydrotherapy session is equivalent to having several regular bowel movements. Subsequent sessions can be even more beneficial when older, hardened, impacted faeces are dislodged from the colon wall.

What additional benefits might I expect from a colonic?

Colonic Irrigation in addition to all the benefits mentioned also:

- Strengthens the immune system 

- Removes parasites 

- Improves metabolism and aids in the absorption of nutrients 

- Relieves pressure on abdominal organs, thus reducing pain and discomfort in this area. 

- Improves circulation and digestive problems without the aid of prescribed drugs. 

- Tones up the abdomen 

- May act as a preventative measure against cancer especially colon cancer. 

- Improves mental clarity.

A colonic can be an enlightening and educational experience. You will learn to become aware of your body's functioning by taking note of changes taking place.

Is Colon Therapy painful?

You should not feel any pain during a colonic session. Most people actually enjoy the colonic and are especially pleased with the unusual sensation of feeling lighter, cleaner and clearer. Sometimes during a colonic, the colon muscles will contract suddenly expelling considerable amounts of liquid and waste into the rectum. This may feel like cramping or gas, and may create a feeling of urgency to empty the rectum. Such episodes, if they do occur, are brief and easily tolerated.

There may be discomfort at times however the therapist is able to release the water pressure at any time to reduce discomfort immediately.

Is there anything I need to do to get ready for a Colonic?

It is a good idea to eat or drink lightly in the 2 hours before a Colonic. Emptying the rectum (with a bowel motion) just before the session can save time, and allow more to be accomplished. Making sure you have emptied your bladder will also make the session more comfortable for you.

 Do I need to fast before my colonic?

No - The therapist can assess the condition of your colon more accurately if you come along under what are your normal dietary conditions.

Will there be a therapist in the room with me when I have my colonic?

Yes - it is essential for the therapist to be with you at all times during the treatment to help you feel at ease and also to monitor the results.

What can I expect afterwards?

As the water enters the bowel, you will begin to feel 'full' and as the water is released, you will feel this sensation. At the end of the session you should feel cleaner and 'lighter' than before. Everybody is different and the way we feel after a colonic can vary. 

Hopefully you will have a greater sense of well-being. As soon as the colonic is [mished you can carry on with your normal day. For some, the colonic may trigger several subsequent bowel movements for the next few hours, but there will NOT be any uncontrollable urgency or discomfort. It is possible you may feel light-headed or chilled for a few moments following a colonic. Often, there can also be an emotional release during the treatment which is perfectly normal.

Will I need to keep rushing to a toilet afterwards?

In our experience, this has not happened. As Colonic Hydrotherapy stimulates the colon and encourages defecation, it will happen during the colonic session, not after.

 Will I need to rest after my colonic?

Only very occasionally does a client need to rest after a colonic - mostly you can get on with your normal daily routine. A lot of clients successfully fit a colonic into their lunch break.

How many colonies will I need?

This really depends on the condition of your bowel and how it responds to the treatment. It takes a long time to build up the waste in the colon, so of course it will probably take a number of sessions to remove it. For healthy people, 4 to 6 sessions will usually give best results. Clients who take it further will always gain more and consultation with the therapist will help you to decide how many sessions are right for you.

Are colonies habit-forming? Will they make my bowel lazy?

Colonic irrigation is designed to achieve a healthy colon - our aim is not to make anyone dependent upon colonies. A colonic session exercises the colon so it is not so sluggish. When the colon is sluggish and bowel movements do not return for a few days after the first Colonic, it is an indication that more sessions are needed to remove the debris that the bowel has built up over the years. This build up of faecal material has decreased the muscular action in the colon. Sometimes, it may take a few days for bowel movements to return after a treatment. This is when people think they are becoming 'dependent' on colonies. After a successful colonic it may take some time for faecal matter to build up again in the colon. Once a series of colonies is completed, the colon will begin to function as it should.

After a series of treatments, once my colon is clean, how often should I have a Colonic? 

This can be decided by you and your therapist. Some people may choose to have a colonic 4 times a year after their course, some may need a colonic once a month. We are all unique after all!


Colema Board



these are made in USA and cost approx $600 NZD to ship here


The colenema board technique on the other hand sends water flowing slowly all the way through the entire length of the colon in a continuous flow, gently. 


The flow is generated naturally by gravity. Nothing is intrusive or mechanical. 


There is no need to get off the board to eliminate. 


Elimination is done while laying on the board which rests over the toilet. That is how it is done over the toilet in your bathroom.




"If you stand long and still enough near rivers, lakes and ponds where herons and similar long-beaked birds fish and feed, you will notice a curious habit.


From time to time, a heron will suck up a beak full of water, twist its neck around and insert the beak into its own anus, squirting the water deep into its bowels to flush out the putrid debris and other residue from its fish-based diet.


Who taught these birds to do that? Nature did... and a Taoist respects no teacher more than nature.


The very sound of the word colon prompts embarrassment these days.


Many people can't even bare to look at a picture of a colon, let alone talk about their own. Suggest that someone run 5 gallons of warm water through it, and embarrassment turns to suspicion or sheer panic.


American doctors are reluctant even to discuss the matter, and they flatly refuse to administer colonic irrigations to patients on request. They believe, as one New York physician put it, colonics 'went out with the horse-and-buggy' a century ago.


American doctors also reject nutritional therapy, herbal remedies, fasting, therapeutic breathing, meditation and other 'outdated' methods that they no longer understand, nor want to understand.


In Russia however, it remains standard procedure in all hospitals and clinics to administer a thorough colonic cleansing to all patients, regardless of their ailments, immediately upon entering any hospital. Russian physicians realize that no cure for any ailment can be properly administered to a filthy, highly toxic body, which simply cannot assimilate and utilize medications.


Nor does a body devitalized by chronic toxemia have sufficient strength and energy to fully recover from such radical procedures as anaesthesia, surgery and chemical therapy.


As a case in point for colonics, take pneumonia. At the turn of the century, before cancer and heart disease replaced it, pneumonia was the biggest killer in America.


Back then, Dr. J.H. Tilden of Denver, Colorado, who specialized in pneumonia and treated more patients for this disease than any other physician on record, never lost a single patient to this dreaded ailment. He achieved his remarkable record by relying entirely on fasting and colonic irrigations, followed by strict diets of raw natural foods. Today, pneumonia still takes a heavy toll among the elderly and weak, despite all the modern drugs used to treat it. (HPS editors note: interesting, no? yes?, what do you think?)


In 1935, at the age of 40, V. Ions suffered from a rare and extremely painful form of arthritis now known as 'ankylosing spondylosis'. This condition is caused by unassimilated calcium (such as that from pasteurized milk) being deposited on the spinal vertebrae, where it gradually builds spurs that cause the entire spine to stoop forward, until, after 10-20 years, the victim is bent over double for life.


Having been told that there is no cure, Ion went off to research his conditions on his own, and, like anyone else who looks hard and long enough for the real source of chronic degenerative disease, he found it lurking in his own clogged colon.


As he recalls:


"Within two months I had no more pain from displacement and with 14 months practically no spurs. All done with home colonics, fasting and natural food- no drugs!"



Herbal colon detox products won't remove the accumulated toxic debris from you colon or small intestines. Nor will enemas. Colonic irrigations are a must because the impacted mucus sticks to the walls of the colon like Velcro. Therefore a continuous flow coupled with fairly large quantities of water are needed to release it for evacuation off the colon walls and out of the colon.


Otherwise only very small amounts will be eliminated, negligible amounts.


When it is released from the colon the HPS-ONLINE way, your energy levels rise immediately- most times within days, but sometimes it can take weeks. No two bodies are the same.


Self administered home colonic irrigations - Colemas - must not be confused with enemas.


At best enemas flush out the rectum and a small part of the descending colon; but they do nothing for the transverse and ascending portions where years of afoul debris, toxic waste, and impacted feces have accumulated.


Enemas can also be a real mess to handle.


The colenema board technique on the other hand sends water flowing slowly all the way through the entire length of the colon in a continuous flow, gently. 


The flow is generated naturally by gravity. Nothing is intrusive or mechanical. 


There is no need to get off the board to eliminate. 


Elimination is done while laying on the board which rests over the toilet. That is how it is done over the toilet in your bathroom.
