Candida Albicans


Candida Albicans is a naturally occurring yeast which lives in our gut aiding our digestion. When an overgrowth of candida occurs (for example, through the use of antibiotics, an unhealthy diet, stress and the pregnancy meds an array of unwanted symptoms can occur. The toxins produced from an overgrowth of candida "and the damage done to the gut lining can cause a devastating list of apparently unrelated symptoms that commonly include fatigue, abdominal bloating and pain, food sensitivities and cravings, but also range from athlete's foot to depression, IBS to recurrent thrush and cystitis to a damaged immune system" (The Practical Guide to Candida, J McWhirter).

During your Colon Hydrotherapy treatment, the therapist will discuss your diet and will suggest different ways of improving it which may restore equilibrium. This may include decreasing the amount of processed foods, foods containing sugar, alcohol, mushrooms and fermented foods and vinegars you are ingesting. Whilst you are having your treatment, anti-fungal preparations will be used in the water to restore equilibrium in the system.

Information will be given about foods and ways of restoring balance and promoting the physical and emotional harmony within the body.

Facts and Questions

Frequently Asked Questions


Is it embarrassing?

No, Colon Hydrotherapy isn't embarrassing. You are kept covered at all times and the therapist has had the treatment herself and understands how important it is to protect your modesty at all times.

Is it painful?

Generally not. From time to time some people may have some cramping but the therapist can add some herbs to the treatment to help settle the bowel.

Do I need more than one appointment?

Generally one colon hydrotherapy treatment won't empty the bowel very much, especially if you have suffered from years of digestive problems like constipation.Your therapist will discuss how many treatments you may require. It also depends on your own goals too.

How often should I have it done?

This varies from person to person depending on the condition we are treating. The number of treaments will vary from person to person dependent on their health goals. We can discuss your options during each treatment.

Is it safe?

Yes. Water is introduced to the bowel by a very low gravitational pressure, therefore, there is no danger of bowel perforation. The water is filtered as well as sterilised.

Can I get an infection from the procedure?

We use either disposable speculums or we autoclave our other equipment to ensure there is no potential for cross-infection. We adhere to the strict guidelines and recommendations of The Guild of Colon Hydrotherapists and Edinburgh Council.

Is it harmful?

No, colon hydrotherapy isn't harmful. It isn't like enemas or suppositories which can make your bowel lazy.

Can I go back to work afterwards?

Absolutely. We allow you sit on the toilet following the procedure to ensure your bowel is settled. You may sit in our waiting room until you feel comfortable to leave. Generally our clients go straight back to work and get on with everyday life.

Do I need to do anything before a treatment?

No fasting or special diets are required beforehand.

Colonic Information & Reasoning

A healthy colon is essential for your over all well being and a balanced body.


Colon Hydrotherapy is an ancient cleansing technique that is used to benefit the entire body.
The colon is an organ in the Digestive system that works as the body's sewage system.
Everyday we overwork our digestive systems by poor diet, medications, stress, anxiety and inadequate exercise causing poor digestion. If our digestion system is not functioning properly it will slow down the colon and cause a build up of waste.
Waste material stuck in your colon will build up and store toxins and bacteria that can manifest into symptoms such as acne , chronic fatigue, headaches, lower back pain, constipation, weight gain, and arthritis.
Maintaining a clean colon through hydrotherapy is one of the best ways to create a healthy digestive environment, in clearing skin, improving circulation and increased mental clarity. 
Beneficial for your entire body;colon hydrotherapy is safe, gentle and only takes 30 minutes.

Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon hydrotherapy is a very safe, effective treatment for a number of digestive problems including constipation, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), candida, bloating and so on. It is also known as colonic irrigation and has a long history dating back to Biblical times (see History of Colonics). Many clients feel an immediate benefit once they commence treatments due to toxins very quickly being eliminated from the body.

The treatment involves warm water flowing into the large colon. It isn't painful but feels very comfortable, similar to an internal bath. The water helps to soften any hard faecal matter and stimulates the digestive system into working again. This is especially good for someone suffering from IBS or people who are chronically constipated. Likewise, for someone suffering from chronic diarrhoea, we can help to remove the irritation and calm the digestive system.

Colon hydrotherapy doesn't make the bowel lazy. We use pure, filtered and sterilised water and use techniques to exercise the colon. Clients generally feel immediate benefits to their health and well-being because the toxins are removed quickly and the digestive system starts to work properly again. During your treatment you are also given advice about diet and life-style and these will help you to maintain long-term good health.
