Most risks associated with Colonics are related to poor clinic hygiene, poor practices, unqualified persons conducting the procedure or not screening for contraindications and finally not using disposable single-use kits.
Given the sensitive nature of the procedure, self-administering the rectal speculum is not recommended as often it is inserted the wrong angle, the wrong depth and certain medical conditions such as rectal polyps, fissures, growths, haemorrhoids etc.. complicate the situation further.
Colonic hydrotherapy is very safe providing it is done correctly. Scraping and damaging the rectal wall trying to insert the speculum is not a good start and completely avoidable when conducted by a qualified Colonic Hydrotherapist.
