    Colon cleansing

Colon cleansing is practiced only with the agreement of the physician in charge of the clinic.

Although it is a painless intervention and extremely effective in detoxifying the body, it must be performed under certain conditions.

The benefits of colon cleansing

Colon cleansing, also known as colonic hydrotherapy, is a gentle method of deep detoxification of the large intestine as well as the entire organism. Unlike an enema, this intestinal hygiene practice is supervised by a certified hydrotherapist and is performed with temperate and filtered water.

An intestine cleansed of its residues prevents the progressive intoxication of the organism, favors the healing process and offers a sense of well-being.

This practice has been used for thousands of years to improve intestinal, immune, energetic and psychic dynamics.

Contraindications and warnings

The purge, although strongly recommended the day before a detox or fasting cure, is not however an essential condition for the success of your stay.

People with low vitality or a weakened digestive system should not purge because they may feel unwell.

Colon hydrotherapy is not recommended in the case of:

  • Pregnancy
  • Old age
  • Low vitality, extreme thinness
  • Convalescence following a surgical operation
  • Liver or kidney disease
  • Heavy medical treatment such as chemotherapy
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Acute hemorrhoids
  • Rectal or intestinal tumors
  • Ulcerative colitis or diverticulitis
  • Hypertension
  • Psychological blockage

The Lémana Clinic will be able to advise you if hydrotherapy should be avoided for you.

Recommendations before colon cleansing

For your total comfort, we recommend that you bring:

  • A hot water bottle (helps the liver to relax and to apply if pain or tension)
  • Warm clothing in winter, as our clinic is located at ~1,000 m altitude
  • A swimsuit and indoor shoes for the pool
  • Comfortable clothing and sportswear, light soled shoes for indoor activities
  • Outdoor shoes and poles for Nordic walking
