Colon Hydrotherapy Contraindications

If you’ve never had a colon hydrotherapy treatment before, one of the questions you might have is, should I see a doctor first? Or maybe you’ve got some pre-existing health conditions you’re concerned about.

Colon Hydrotherapy contraindications are health conditions which under most circumstances will prevent you from receiving treatment.

While colon hydrotherapy is safe when properly administered by a professional colon therapist, there are certain circumstances, or what we call “contraindications” which could make this treatment inadvisable for some people. Consulting a doctor or other trusted medical advisor is prudent, and according to their knowledge and understanding of the benefits and practice of colon hydrotherapy, they may encourage you to seek treatment or summarily reject it’s use.

The following listed conditions are contraindications for colon hydrotherapy. If you have any of these conditions, you may not be treated at this time.

Furthermore it is your sole responsibility to fully disclose to us if you have ever been diagnosed with any of these conditions in the past.

The only exception will be if you can present a written prescription from your doctor or state licensed medical practitioner authorizing treatment and supervision over our services for the contraindication.
