Tips for selecting a colon hydrotherapy provider

Opinions are split on whether colonics benefit your health, but many consumers make it a part of their health regimen. If you're considering scheduling a session, keep these tips in mind:

Find a reputable therapist. Look for a member of the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy. I-ACT members have taken a minimum of 100 course hours, which includes 25 therapy sessions.

Check the equipment. Find out if the facility uses FDA-registered equipment as well as disposable speculums and rectal tubes.

Ask questions. Before you begin your session, go over the procedure with your therapist and discuss how you might feel during or after your colonic. Some people experience mild cramping or nausea.

Know your comfort level. During the procedure you'll be draped with a sheet, but some may still feel embarrassed. Your therapist should help to ease anxiety. If you don't feel comfortable, don't continue with the session.

I am a Colon Therapist who also has 100 hours of training.I was trained by a Dr. who has been doing colonics for 35 years. The I-ACT is a voluntary organization and pressures therapists to use equipment that members of their board are the manufacturers of. This is a conflict of interest. It does not guarantee that their members are better than anyone else.
