Reshaping of the colon, the fill & release stimulate peristalsis & reduction of spastic constrictions. This allows the colon to restore to its natural state leading to less problems.
Why have a Colonic?
It is not uncommon for a person to have several extra kilograms of impacted faecal matter in the colon even if you poo a few times daily, providing an acidic & ideal breeding environment for yeast, parasites, bacteria and more. The build up of faecal matter, toxic waste, dead cellular tissue, worms & mucus on the colon wall inhibits muscular contractions, resulting in sluggish bowel movements, plaque build up, gas/ bloating/ slow transit time/ chronic constipation. This waste can re-circulate & enter the blood stream causing symptoms of toxicity & the impacted faecal matter can impair the colons ability to assimilate vitamins & minerals. The purpose of colon hydrotherapy is therefore to hydrate & break down faecal matter allowing for the removal of toxins & waste material from the colon & to relieve bloating, excess gas & discomfort. A healthier, cleaner bowel allows for better vitamin & nutrient uptake & less toxin reabsorption.
By reducing the amount of toxic waste in the bowels we subsequently cleanse the bloodstream, tissues & organs & digestive issues such as constipation, bloating & flatulence will reduce. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon also helps to improve peristaltic function, therefore the muscles of the colon may become more toned & strengthened & subsequent transit time of faecal matter will often speed up. By eliminating pockets of waste & impacted faecal matter, the colon will ideally resume its natural state. You will often see that your stomach is immediately flatter after a session & this is more noticeable after 1 to 2 days. In the long run, as toxins are cleared with each colonic, the bodies ability to focus on fat burning may be enhanced due to the cells retaining less toxins & subsequently retaining less fat in the cells. Let’s keep in mind that every day we are still facing toxin exposure from our diet/ beauty products/environmental factors which is why regular colonics are a great addition to a healthy diet & lifestyle.

Our modern machine is operated at a maximum psi pressure of 1 or less, which means it is similar to a gravity colonic and allows a more comfortable colonic for the patient. Our water goes through a three phase filtering sequence, independent for hot and cold water. Our temperature gauge is built into our machine and our machine is also self cleaning with medical grade disinfectant. We can also view the waste as it exits the bowel in the viewing tube along with identifying excess fermentation, candida, gas, mucus & whether you are in fact chewing your food! We are approved by NSW Health to offer Colon Hydrotherapy & we use single use equipment (speculums and tubing) that is also been approved by NSW Health.
Once you arrive & have filled in your form, we will discuss your medical history & current health status/ concerns. Recommendations will be discussed with you during your colonic. Rebekah will then explain the colonic procedure & reiterate the information you received about the colonic procedure & what to expect when you booked online. From here, we start the Colonic treatment. You will be asked to empty the bladder & change your lower half into a disposable eco friendly towel. Then you will be guided through the process of the speculum insertion. We use a speculum that is for single use only. The insertion process is painless and takes less than 1 minute. You will be draped appropriately at all times so that your dignity is maintained & privacy protected. The procedure then begins with gentle fills & releases of waste. Throughout the procedure, your colon hydrotherapist will remain with you. It is a situation where we work together to achieve effective results & discuss your health at the same time. Rebekah aims to educate you on the importance of your nutrition choices & to assist you to improve your diet, which is often one of the main contributors for underlying gut dysfunction. When you book online you receive all the information about your procedure prior so all possible questions are answered.
Many clients of Yes2health that eat a healthy diet & are regularly having colonics as part of their lifestyle have the easiest colonics which are enjoyable & a ‘walk in the park’. For others, the first one or two colonics may cause some mild discomfort/cramps which is similar to the feeling of having diarrhoea or a tenderness like mild period pain. Others may experience nausea, which can be a sign of toxicity & toxins being stirred up from the water however this is all a sign of the body detoxing and part of the process in achieving optimal gut health. You may also have more bowel motions on the day of your first 1st and 2nd colonic which is all to be expected after softening and hydrating your bowel. The stirring up of gas and bloating may also occur. With each colonic, you feel more invigorated, refreshed, hydrated & energetic so it is highly recommended that you not just have 1 colonic but commit to regular colonics as part of your wellness journey. It’s a great decision to start regular colonics & every colonic gets better & better & in fact enjoyable.
The treatment goes for up to 45 minutes. You will have adequate time to go to the bathroom afterwards if needed also. We also allow 15 minutes between each client to allow for thorough cleaning of the toilet & treatment room.
Yes2health recommends initially 3-4 colonics, ideally one per week for 3-4 weeks, however this can vary from person to person. This is ideal for those suffering from constipation and impaction. For general maintenance colonics we recommend 1 per month or every few months, but you will know when you need to rebook. The first colonic is considered a hydration & softening treatment, however many clients release a decent amount during the first colonic. Additional colonics are where you really start releasing all that waste & feel the amazing benefits that colonics offer. You have the option of a 1 hour Online Naturopathic Consultation to commence you on a Nutritional & Herbal Protocol to assist the Colonics and improvement of your health.

Yes you can. You can go about your day as normal but just avoid vigorous activity for 2 hours afterwards. Some clients feel invigorated & energetic after a colonic, some feel lighter & calm, & some feel tired which can just be a sign of the body going through the detoxification processes.
If you are on a detoxification program provided by Yes2health, colonics will help you to eliminate toxins, reduce recirculation of toxins & assist you to feel a whole lot better. Colonics reduce symptoms commonly experienced during detox (headache, fatigue, low energy, nausea, aches & pains). By allowing the colon to clear out a lot of the toxic waste, you can continue on the detox without feeling terrible (which some, not all experience) during the various stages of detox. Please note it is vital that you work with a Qualified Naturopath when undergoing detoxification programs/ juice fasts & water fasts.
