Colon hydrotherapy question: How many colonic irrigations can you have and how much do they cost?

For someone who has never had a colonic irrigation or colon hydrotherapy treatment... It is not uncommon for a colon hydrotherapist to recommend a “series” of 3 therapies within approximately a 7 to 10 day time period.

This may also be recommended for those whose last treatment was longer than six (6) months ago.

Depending on your general colon health, the first one or two therapies help eliminate fecal waste built up in the first 1/2 to 2/3rds of the colon. Depending of the condition of your colon after the first 2 therapies — and your results, as observed by the therapist — additional visits may be necessary to obtain a more thorough cleansing.

Single therapy treatments vary from state to state, ranging from approximately $55 to $95 per treatment session. The typically office visit will last approximately 1 hour — of which 45 minutes is actual colon hydrotherapy treatment time.

Some, not all, colon therapists may offer discounts — $5 to $15 off per session — on multiple therapy sessions if you are willing to prepay for your treatment visits. But there may be a time limit within which you must take all your treatments.

Be sure to ask up front about payment options available to you. The savings can be significant, especially if you require colon hydrotherapy frequently during the year.

Unfortunately, as with many types of alternative treatments, your health insurance policy may not cover the cost of your treatments. It would be a good idea to call them in advance to see if you're covered. Your therapist may also be familiar with health insurance providers who have paid their client's therapy costs in the past.

As more people start to demand their health insurance carriers underwrite the cost of their alternative health care, the insurance companies will eventually see the wisdom of paying to keep their policyholders healthy. But for now, very few health insurance policies cover colon hydrotherapy (except possibly in the State of Washington or California).

Here's how to find a Colon Hydrotherapist in your area.

Colon Hydrotherapy or Colon Cleansers?

As colon therapists we are often asked, “Do you use an intestinal colon cleanser to prepare for colon therapy... to relieve constipation or to maintain good colon health?”

Yes we do!

Over the years we've tried many different colon cleansers and the effectiveness of each one varies greatly. Colon cleansing success is very dependent on pre-existing colon health and the amount of water you consume on a daily basis. The use of a colon cleanser may not be appropriate for those with particularly sensitive or diseased colons... But for most people, there are exceptionally good reasons to use an all natural colon cleanser!
