So I decided not to pursue hydrotherapy. I have no idea if doing a colonic is similar or not, but I believe it is.
Colon hydrotherapy is just a contemporary replacement term for colonic irrigation (maybe it sounds less gross?). I’m not sure what “life force” your naturopath is referring too, but no-one should need more than a handful of colonics to completely cleanse their bowels. Therapists will recommend you get one or two treatments per year for maintenance after the initial cleansing, but that’s probably more of a business recommendation (assuming your diet and lifestyle remain healthy). You’re probably better off asking someone trained in colon hydrotherapy for advice on this matter.
If your naturopath meant that water treatment you get in a bathtub for relieving pain and stuff, then that’s a different treatment altogether though.
