Colon Hydrotherapy for Colonoscopy Preparation
Colonoscopies are highly recommended for all persons over 55 and sooner for those with a family history of colon cancer. Many, however, dread the colonoscopy preparation comprised of gallons of laxatives.
You have another choice.
Colon hydrotherapy is a more convenient, quick, and safe method. This gentle procedure infuses warm, filtered, sterilized water into the colon in preparation for a colonoscopy.
A study conducted in 2006 showed that endoscopists rate the quality of colon cleansing by colon hydrotherapy as 92% for the ascending colon, 100% for the transverse colon, and 98% for the descending colon. Likewise, patients reported colon hydrotherapy preparation as:
- easy (96%).
- convenient (98%).
- comfortable (94%).
A second study in 2011 found that 96% of patients would choose colon hydrotherapy again.
Simple plan: 3 consecutive colon hydrotherapy sessions are required before the colonoscopy examination.
- Session 1 two days prior to the colonoscopy.
- Session 2 one day prior to the colonoscopy.
- Session 3 the morning of the colonoscopy.
Researchers, medical professionals, and patients alike agree that colon hydrotherapy is easier, more convenient, more comfortable, and more effective than alternative methods. Colon hydrotherapy is the clear choice for colonoscopy preparation!
Danbury Hospital in Danbury, CT supports the use of colon hydrotherapy as a preparation for colonoscopy.*
