Colon Hydrotherapy

International School for Colon Hydrotherapy (ICHT Kiental)

Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and effective method to cleanse and detoxify the colon of deposits (incrustations). Already on ancient Egyptian papers (1500 BC) there are reports of colon irrigations. In Ayurvedic medicine, intestinal cleansing is an essential component, and until the first decades of the 20th century it was also considered an integral part of all health methods in Europe.


Why Colon Hydro Therapy

The supply of nutrients to the body is regulated by the intestines. Thus, the digestive tract provides fundamental for our well-being. Unfortunately, we often eat too much, too fast, at the wrong time and under stress, which puts a strain on the intestines and our digestive system. Bacterial processes produce fermentation and putrefactive toxins that damage the intestines themselves, the liver and subsequently all organ systems. Digestive disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, food intolerances and metabolic disorders develop. General reduced performance, sleep disorders, headaches or menopausal symptoms are also related to these poisoning processes.
In the Colon Hydro Therapy training you will tackle these problems at the root and receive the basic knowledge to become a holistic Colon Hydro Therapist.
