Colon Hydrotherapy involves introducing water to the colon with the use of hygienic apparatus, to aid the evacuation of waste from the large intestine. The treatment is also known as colonic irrigation. Practitioners are not regulated by law but may join an Accredited Register, which ensures they adhere to good standards of practice.
The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) is a voluntary regulator of complementary healthcare practitioners. They were established with Department of Health funding and support and their key purpose is to protect the public.
