Revitalize your body
Detoxification of the body is an oral procedure of hydrotherapy of the whole digestive system from the mouth to the colon for the purpose of eliminating toxins and allergens from the body.
In our practice, we offer Oral Bowel Hydrotherapy as a treatment procedure, as well as a preventative method for healthy individuals who care about their physical and psychological wellbeing.
This procedure is recommended for revitalization of the whole body. It is highly effective in the treatment of Digestive System Disorders such as Gastritis, Ulcers, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Constipation, alleviating Allergies, among others.
An Increasingly Toxic Environment
Throughout our lives, toxins and allergens enter the body through food, air and water, and they often cause various diseases. According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, every one out 2 people in the United States suffers from an allergy at present as compared to every fourth person towards the end of the 20th century- the same applies to Kenya. Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic diseases in the US. Recent studies by the American Association of Poison Control Centre reveal the shocking news that over 120,000 human-made chemicals have been introduced to the environment in one form or another.
Toxins are harmful to all people, even the most healthy-looking. They exhaust the natural reserves of the immune system and make people vulnerable to diseases. There is evidence of a link between the accumulation of toxins in the body tissues and the development of chronic diseases.
Why Do We Need Detox?
Food that passes through the gastrointestinal tract is not always completely digested. Residual matter may remain in the gut and begin to decay in the intestines. The intestinal immune barrier against infections and allergens may be altered and it can lead to digestive system dysfunctions and different diseases. Thus, removal of the residual matter by a thorough cleaning procedure may explain the excellent health improvements seen in treated clients.
Additionally, there appears to be strong evidence that various toxic metabolites, the breakdown products of medicines and other chemicals, are secreted into the digestive tract with digestive juices and can also be eliminated. We use absorbents, Smekta and foods with high fibre, for 24 hours after hydrotherapy which enhance the binding and elimination of toxins from the body. Fibre acts like a brush in the intestines and supports the cleansing effect of the treatment.

We Use a Physiological Solution
For Bowel Hydrotherapy
This is the solution of salts that is essentially isotonic with tissue fluids or blood.
You will drink warm, slightly salty water that will pass through your digestive tract without being absorbed. While navigating the digestive system, this solution will gently, smoothly and naturally stimulate the peristaltic of the bowel and in about 45 minutes you will experience the urge to pass stool. By the end of the procedure, in approximately 2 hours, you will pass clear water from the bowel. This is means that water you drank passed through your whole digestive system from the mouth to the stomach, duodenum, small intestine and large intestine and come out physiologically with your own peristaltic.
The Physiological Solution which you drink cleans mucosa of the bowel mechanically, by simply moving through the bowel and irrigating (washing) it, with no chemical or laxative effect.
This makes it the most natural and physiological procedure.
Where Is It Done?
We have a comfortable, self-contained room set aside specifically for the Bowel Hydrotherapy. For the procedure, all you need to do is drink 200ml of warm (slightly salty) water in 5 minute intervals. While going on with the procedure you feel free to be busy with something: like read the magazine, do some exercises, work on your computer or just enjoy a show on TV.
A Bit of History
Colon Hydrotherapy is the procedure of pushing water through the rectum to the large intestine, with a help of special pump. It results in washing out of food waste that may accumulate in between deep inside the pouch-like structures known as haustra in the large intestine.
Our doctors have experience using Colon Hydrotherapy since 1980. During that time, this procedure was widely used by Gastroenterological Health Farms in Ukrain, until the Oral Bowel Hydrotherapy procedure was developed by Associate Professor Michael Zavidyak. Studies were done at Gastroenterological Health Farm, “Polyana” under Uzhhorod National Medical University, Ukraine.
Being trained by Associate Professor. Zavidyak, Dr. L. Shchukina studied Oral Hydrotherapy of the Digestive System and has been using it successfully at Holistic Living for over 20 years, due to its effectiveness in the treatment of many gastroenterological disorders as well as body detox.
Why Is Oral Hydrotherapy of the Bowel More Beneficial than Colon Hydrotherapy?
- Oral Hydrotherapy uses a physiological solution that is not absorbed in the Digestive System, it does not interfere with the body fluids, and it dose not cause any laxative effect. That is why the solution is called
- In Oral Bowel Hydrotherapy, the water moves with your own peristaltic in the physiological direction (from the mouth, down to intestine), the same way food moves. This is the reason why you do not experience any unpleasant feelings. With Colon Hydrotherapy, water is pushed against your bowel peristaltic and it may give quite unpleasant feelings.
- Oral Bowel Hydrotherapy is a non-invasive method, where you drink 200 ml of warm (slightly salty) water in 5 minute intervals. We do not use any tube or water pump.
- With Oral Bowel Hydrotherapy, you will get your Entire Digestive System Cleaned and Rejuvenated, from the mouth to the stomach, duodenum, small intestine and large intestine (colon). With Colon Hydrotherapy, you only get your colon cleansed, and this is the bid difference!
Before the procedure each new patient will be examined by our doctor to determine the client’s present medical condition.
Bowel Hydrotherapy is performed in several steps:
- Drinking warm, slightly salty Water
- Administration of Sorbent that aid in further binding and removal of toxins from the body
- Administration of Probiotics for improvement of bowel microflora
- After the procedure, the client is advised to follow a 24-hour Fruit and Vegetable Diet that is rich in fibre, to continue eliminating toxins and allergens from the body.
