With over 30 years of experience offering colon hydrotherapy, sometimes I feel like I’ve seen it all. There are so many reasons that people come into my Post Falls home office to receive colon hydrotherapy (colonics). But, year after year, similar trends emerge of the most common reasons that people come to see me. Today, I’m giving a list of the top four reasons that my North Idaho clients come in.

If you are suffering from any of these issues, please never hesitate to call. It is my passion to help people find the best expression of health within their own bodies and minds. Colonics have been helpful in finding that for me and I believe they can be helpful for many people.

Reason 1: Feeling sluggish and just not feeling well, overall.

I think this is the most common reason that people come in to my office. Humans are intuitive and know when something just isn’t right in their bodies. People who are very focused on their health, can begin to hone this skill quite well. For example, people with even slight food sensitivities may notice a change in how they feel with a small change in diet. Many of my clients know how great they feel after a colonic. And, when they are feeling “off” or “sluggish,” they call in to schedule an appointment.

Colonics give your digestion a break. Think of all the energy you use to take care of everything that you put in your body. Now think if that energy could go into living your everyday life with your family and friends?! That’s the gift of a colonic.


Reason 2: Kickstarting Weight Loss or a New Diet

This is such a common reason for people to come in and for a couple of good reasons! Why are colonics a great way to kickstart weight loss or the start of a new diet.? Well, for one, ridding the body of a large amount of toxic matter just feels great. It makes you feel light and energized. That new sense of lightness can help as you work towards your health goals. Colonics are NOT meant exclusively for weight loss, but can be very beneficial in getting it started.  Colonics help eliminate cravings that can sabotage your goals – feel free to ask me about this in your next appointment!

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Committing to a colonic series as part of a weight loss or diet change, can be a great way to stick to your commitments. I am not shy when it comes to asking how you’re doing and giving you support and guidance. I want to gently hold people accountable to their own goals, as reaching a goal is oh-so-sweet! And, I can’t help say that my holistic perspective on colonics, nutrition and overall health sets me apart from other businesses offering colonics in North Idaho and the surrounding areas.


Reason 3: Constipation or Irregular Digestion

Well, this one is self-explanatory! But, I always find it interesting that it’s not the MOST common reason that people come in. Colonics can be very helpful with constipation and irregular digestion. With this concern, especially if constipation is severe, a series of colonics is almost always necessary to great the most benefit. And, reading some of my other articles like What to Expect in your Colonic, How to Prevent a Difficult Colonic and What to do Before & After a Colonic can be very helpful in setting up the client to be relaxed and make the most of their appointments!


Reason 4: Immune Health

Immune health has always been a common reason for colonics. But, since the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become even more common. I’ll be writing a full blog post on this shortly, but I’ll give you the quick version. Many of us assume the the colon is only in charge of removing waste from our bodies, but it does so much more than that. Including absorbing nutrients missed by the small intestine, helping regulate your bodies hydration levels, helping your body make vitamins like K and B-12 from the food you consume, and more. All of these things are important for the healthy functioning of your immune system. Colonics can be a part of your plan to take care of your colon!

I hope that this article gives you some ideas of why people would come in for colon hydrotherapy sessions. If you are suffering from feeling sluggish or constipation or if you are wanting to kick start your weight loss journey or immune health, feel free to get in touch!
