What do doctors say about colonics?

Some doctor will recommend their patients to have the colonic hydrotherapy treatment whilst others will not. Here is what Dr. Leonard Smith, a board certified gastrointestinal surgeon believes about the treatment of colonic hydrotherapy

“I also believe that normally healthy people will find it valuable to take colon hydrotherapy every couple of months in order to experience how well one feels when the colon is truly empty. It’s a fact that most people fail to fully evacuate the colon, something they don’t realize. People undergoing colon hydrotherapy on a prevention basis, become quite surprised at how much waste is removed by the procedure.” Dr. Leonard Smith

How do I know that colonics are right for me?

If you have been to your doctor, and they have checked you over but cannot find any medical concern it may be that your colon is just a little shy or sluggish. In that case colonics at Dublin Vitality Centre can be a beneficial way to restore function and boost gut health.

Do colonic wash away gut flora and healthy microbiome?

No evidence has been found to suggest this. However, persons unfamiliar with complex gut biology and with colonics and those who do not keep up with scientific findings around such gut health matters often cite this unverifiable theory.

Are there any studies to prove that colonics are bad for gut flora?

No. But there are studies that show that colonics have no adverse effect on gut flora. “It has been proposed that colon irrigations with large volumes of water may obliterate the microbiota and induce electrolyte abnormalities, but no studies support these claims. Yoko Uchiyama Tanaka
