Is Colon Hydrotherapy a good way to prepare for a Colonoscopy?


Colon Hydrotherapy is an excellent way to prepare for a colonoscopy and we have helped many people prepare for them comfortably! Colon Hydrotherapy is far more pleasant, dignified and thorough than using the fleet enemas.


With Colon Cancer being the #2 cause of death in the U.S., we are very supportive of people undergoing a colonoscopy.. Most people dread them because of the scope, and the anesthesia and the infamous “ready go lightly” drink.



Now for some Good News!


For a Colonoscopy, we suggest our clients consider a VIRTUAL COLONOSCOPY - CT DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING CENTER. This is because a virtual colonoscopy uses NO SCOPE and NO ANESTHESIA and NO “Ready-Go-Lightly" drink!

The Virtual Colonoscopy gives you a complete 3D view of the colon thoroughly examining the inside as well as the shape of the colon.



Non-Invasive, Painless and No After Effects.


Virtual colonoscopy is a new method that allows doctors to look at the large bowel (colon) to detect polyps and cancers. Polyps are small growths in the colon that may become cancerous if they are not removed.


Virtual colonoscopy is a recently developed technique that uses a CT scanner and computer virtual reality software to look inside the body without having to insert a long tube (as with a conventional colonoscopy) into the colon or without having to fill the colon with liquid barium (Barium Enema).

Research performed at Boston University and elsewhere has shown that Virtual Colonoscopy is better able to see polyps than Barium Enema and is nearly as accurate as Conventional Colonoscopy. In addition, most patients report that the Virtual Colonoscopy technique is more comfortable than either Barium Enema or Conventional Colonoscopy.


How is Virtual Colonoscopy done?


Virtual colonoscopy uses a standard computed tomography (CT or CAT scan) of the abdomen, which allows radiologists (special physicians with advanced training in x-ray imaging) to create pictures on the computer that look similar to those seen by Conventional Colonoscopy. Patients need a cleansing preparation of their bowel prior to the test. The day of the test, they come to the radiology department for a CT scan.


The actual virtual colonoscopy procedure will begin by having a small flexible rubber tube placed in the rectum, so that air can be introduced. A CAT scan is then performed while patients lie comfortably on their back and then on their stomach. The total time required for the study is approximately 10-20 minutes. Because sedation is not required, patients are free to leave the CT suite immediately without the need for observation or recovery. Patients can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure and can eat, work or drive without a delay.


Doctors (radiologists) analyze the CT data to detect colon polyps or cancers. The only complaint I hear about Virtual Colonoscopy is that if a polyp is detected, then a procedure will have to be performed later to remove the polyp that could have been “taken care of” during the conventional colonoscopy. My opinion is, “Cross that bridge when you get there”. Not everyone has polyps. Why put a scope all 5 plus feet of the colon to find a polyp that may be only in the first few inches? If a polyp is detected during the Virtual Colonoscopy, they will only have to go in ONLY that far during the second procedure to remove it. In my opinion, it might be worth the cost and time for a second procedure since a Virtual Colonoscopy offers less risk of perforation.


When you schedule your appointment for a Virtual Colonoscopy (only 30 minutes), they will give you an easy to follow protocol to best prepare for your virtual colonoscopy. (We will be happy to provide you a list of these centers during your first session). Below are Excellent Views from a Virtual Colonoscopy (Notice the abnormal shape and twisting of the colon. A conventional colonoscopy does not show the shape of the colon.)

Despite critics, colonics gain grass-roots fans...

Colon hydrotherapists say they believe it's only a matter of time before the therapy gains an even wider acceptance with the public and, eventually, with the medical establishment.


Got Questions?




A New Choice For Colonoscopy Preparation


In this article, dated January 24, 2008, a respected medical professional, Dr.Joseph Fiorito, M.D., chief of the Section of Gastroenterology, a nationally
recognized program at Danbury Hospital, a regional medical center and university teaching hospital in Danbury, Connecticut reinforces the advantages of colon hydrotherapy, in an article in which he refers to colon hydrotherapy as "an alternative method to cleanse the bowel to prepare for a colonoscopy -- one that is more convenient, quicker, and eliminates having to drink a gallon of liquid laxatives the night before".





What Our Wonderful Clients Have To Say...

Doctor Recommended... 


"As a physician specializing in detoxification, I often send my patients for colonics. I am also familiar with each of the providers in Portland and ONLY refer to Colon Care. I know that when I send a patient to Rebecca for care, they will be handled professionally in a clean and comforting environment. She is highly trained and her protocols are sophisticated.


My patients have nothing but the best reports to give after visiting her. As a doctor I highly recommend her. - Dr. Justin Hoffman, Now in Santa Rosa, CA at


Fantastic experience...


Ever since my diagnosis of breast cancer in 2008, I have been a client of Rebecca for my detoxing and constipation. Colon care was recommended by my naturopath whom I respect and trust. I add that part because i am also in the medical field and am very critical of doctors both for their medical knowledge and personal concern.


Rebecca was professional, caring and encouraging from the moment I met her. Her ongoing concern for myself and other patients is why I continue to go to her under the direction of my naturopath. I will continue to go to her and recommend her to friends." - Katie T. 

Clean, professional, doctor-referred...


"I can see why some doctors in the Portland area refer exclusively to Rebecca at Colon Care. The clinic is immaculate, and the process very comfortable and discreet.


Rebecca also has the experience to effectively communicate with her referring doctors to give the safest and most effective treatment for each client. She spends a lot of time educating her clients, and carefully determining what is best for them. Very highly recommended."
