Usually, colonoscopy screening has you fasting for 24 hours, and drinking a vast amount of liquid laxatives the night before your test. This is typically not everyones’s favorite day. However, there is a complementary method specifically designed to prepare your colon for a colonoscopy!
Colon Hydrotherapy involves gentle infusions of warm water into the rectum and large intestine that’s meant to irrigate and clean these areas. The procedure is performed in a soothing environment, with a trained practitioner, using a FDA regulated devise, developed specifically for colonoscopy preparation. Colon hydrotherapy has been shown to be just as effective as the traditional methods of preparation, and has the added benefit of being minimally invasive.
Ask your Gastroenterologist if he/she would allow this alternative preparation for your next screening procedure.
