Contraindications for Colon Hydrotherapy.

A contraindication is any symptom or condition that makes it inadvisable to use a particular therapy. The following are contraindications for colon hydrotherapy. If any of these apply to you, unfortunately we are not able to treat you with colon hydrotherapy unless you have a written  documentation from your health care provider giving clearance for our services.

 

Contraindications for Colon Hydrotherapy:

 

 

  • Cancer of the colon or GI (gastro intestinal) tract.

  • Pregnancy or suspected.
  • Acute abdominal pain (please call us to clarify).

  • Recent history of GI or rectal bleeding.

  • Congestive heart failure.

  • Uncontrolled hypertension.

  • History of seizures.

  • Carcinoma of the rectum.

  • Abdominal surgery (please call to discuss as this does not apply to all surgeries).

  • Intestinal perforation.

  • Strangulated abdominal or inguinal hernias.

  • Recent colon or rectal surgery.

  • Diverticulitis.

  • General debilitation.
