You may have heard Hollywood A-listers and others swear by the health benefits of colon hydrotherapy, while some are just as vocal about not being sold on the upside of cleansing with colonics.

As with any controversial treatments, myths abound about colon hydrotherapy. Knowing fact from fiction will help you make up your own mind.

Myth: Colon hydrotherapy is just another fad.

Fact: Colonic irrigation, or a water enema, is not a new health fad. Early Egyptians as well as Hippocrates and Aristotle practiced colonic irrigation and modern society has continued the practice ever since.

Myth: Colon hydrotherapy won’t actually do anything.

Fact: According to experts who provide colonic irrigation, the typical American adult carries around up to 10 pounds of residual fecal matter in the large intestine. Eliminating this waste with gentle colon hydrotherapy offers relief from bloating, constipation, and gas. Those who have regular colon hydrotherapy share stories of improved health (everything from better management of diabetes to a better complexion), weight loss, and more regular bowel movements. It’s a great way to restart your system, detox then replenish with our probiotics.

Myth: Colon hydrotherapy is embarrassing and uncomfortable.

Fact: Colonic irrigation is nothing to be afraid of. The International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy stresses that it is a safe and effective way to eliminate waste without using drugs – just filtered, temperature-regulated water. At Eco Chateau, we boast the top colon hydrotherapists in San Diego.

We have what is known as the Rolls Royce of colon hydrotherapy, (according to Tony Robbins a huge advocate of the Libbe) the Libbe Device, which is a FDA-registered Class II medical device.

Myth: The health of your colon is not that important.

Fact: 80% of your immune health is determined by your GI tract, keeping it cleansed for a stronger, healthier you.
