Kolonics or Colonics (often called colon cleansing or colon irrigation) is a procedure where purified warm water is allowed to pass thoroughly and slowly into the colon (large intestine) for cleansing.
A lubricated, disposable tube (Obturator) is gently inserted into the rectum without damaging any rectal tissue. The extension of an obturator is then connected to two tubes, the small tube delivers water to the speculum and colon while the other tube carries the fecal waste and toxins to the Colon therapy machine.

The Colon therapy machine is attached to a person’s body in a way which discreetly removes the colon waste without odor. An average session lasts up to 35 to 50 minutes where the Colon Therapist infuses 5 to 20 gallons of purified water into the colon.
Once a certain volume of water is filled the colon is emptied carrying the fecal and toxic matter through the drainage tube. Kolon Kleening can charge about $80 to $100 per sessions.

A periodic Colon (Kolonics) irrigation removes waste stuck in the colon walls. The waste buildup supposedly produces toxins which enter the blood and may result to slow poisoning a person. Symptoms include bloating, irritating skin, weight gain, fatigue, allergies to arthritis and cancer ultimately resulting in depressions.
The repetitive Kolonics procedure not only flushes toxins out of the colon but also stimulates colon contraction(Peristalsis). Peristalsis is the same muscular action performed as the stool moves through the colon. So, Colon hydrotherapy not only cleanses the colon but also strengthens the colon muscles.

Colon Hydrotherapy also is known as (Kolonics) colonics, Colonic Irrigation, High Enema and Colon Therapy. Colon Hydrotherapy can be very helpful in assisting to get rid of the colon waste. There are medical cases when doctors have found colon waste up to thirty pounds including undigested fecal matter in colons. So the less waste material a person is carrying the likely is them to weigh less.
With continued colon hydrotherapy and active weight loss sessions, it is very much possible to lose weight in a healthy manner. A clogged colon can result in difficulty in weight loss as the digestion becomes slow, passive metabolism, high food cravings, hunger remains high as lack of nutrients being absorbed properly. To counter these problems Colon Hydrotherapy provides the best therapy for weight loss by unclogging and cleaning the colons.
Although it is not recommended as a weight loss strategy as it does not eliminate fat but only colon wastes. Colonic Hydrotherapy should not be practiced as a sole weight loss aid instead, weight loss should be done naturally through lifestyle changes. Choosing Colonic Hydrotherapy as a quick fix weight loss measure could result in adverse effects of eating disorder according to MayoClinic.com.
Many professionals have also quoted that a body is designed with its own cleansing systems to eliminate harmful substances: the liver and kidneys. Conclusively, Colon irrigation done to remove toxins is unnecessary and is considered harmful to the human body, especially colon hydrotherapy. Dr. Michael Picco at MayoClinic.com states that little scientific evidence supports the claims and benefits of colonic hydrotherapy.

Though Scientific Research on Colon cleansing is very limited and the evidence is not good for the claims its practitioners make. Intestinal Cleansing can be done in two ways:
The process is continued several times and after the water is flushed inside the colon therapist massages the abdomen and the water is again flushed out consisting toxins and colon wastes.
