Colon hydrotherapy is an essential treatment used to assist the body in the healing process in a wide variety of different colon-centred conditions such as:
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Premenstrual syndrome
- Painful menstruation
- Back pain
- Bad breath
- Hay fever
- Sinus problems
- Intestinal parasites
The primary benefit is that the colon is cleansed of impacted and putrefied faecal matter. In some cases the sluggish impacted matter can weigh between 2 to 4 kilos, sometimes more.
It can also remove gas, undigested foods, mucous and intestinal parasites including tapeworms.
By removing accumulated putrefied waste and re-toning the bowel, colon hydrotherapy improves the function of the colon and prevents the body from reabsorbing toxins during cleansing and detoxification. The Libbe (Lower Intestinal Bottom Bowel Evacuation System) is the finest “State of the Art” equipment on the market.
One of the key factors is that your privacy and personal hygiene are maintained at all times.
Many people find this deeply reassuring and comforting. Perth Colon Health & Wellness Centre has the only Libbe systems in Perth.

"I had wanted to experience the benefits of colon hydrotherapy for many years, but had been concerned about the loss of privacy and dignity, as well as the possibility of my waste material and unpleasant odours being exposed to a therapist.
I found however that the treatment process at Perth Colon Health & Wellness Centre made me feel at ease and was very dignified and private, with the client carrying out the initial part of the procedure themselves, following a simple lesson.
The results are a wonderful feeling of being lighter, cleaner and healthier, as well as a great sense of well-being.

Removing the Mystery of Colon Hydrotherapy
When you arrive for your appointment you will be asked to complete a client information form. At this time we will also discuss with you what you, the client, hope to accomplish through colon hydrotherapy.
We then go into the colon hydrotherapy room. In private, you undress from the waist down and position yourself comfortably on the Libbe base. The client gently and easily inserts the Libbe rectal tube in privacy. The Libbe rectal tube is the size of a pencil, individually packaged, sterile, for single use and is properly disposed of after the session. The client then covers themselves from the waist down.
Water flows through a carbon filter, which removes any sediment, rust or chlorine. The water is then purified by an Ultra Violet purification system, before it enters the body. A gentle slow rate of purified, temperature safe water is then gravity fed through the tube. Faeces releases naturally. An odour exhaust system ensures the session room remains odour free.
During a treatment, the client will experience several gentle fills and releases of water which eliminates the debris of putrefied and impacted faecal matter, excessive mucus, gases and in some instances, one or more forms of parasites. Gently filling and emptying the colon of water improves the peristaltic (wave-like) muscle action, which increases your transit time of waste material and your natural ability to eliminate.
A clear viewing tube allows you to see what comes out during releases. Waste is evacuated into the waste line without offensive odour and without compromising the dignity of the individual. A rinsing sprayer is used to rinse your bottom after the session.
Our fully trained Colon Hydrotherapists are always nearby to monitor and provide you with assistance and comfort as needed.
To promote the release of accumulated toxic waste matter, our Colon Hydrotherapists can apply heat packs or abdominal massage and foot reflexology.
A session lasts approximately 40 minutes. Dignity is protected at all times. After each session the Libbe is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. On completion you can relax in our client lounge with a refreshing herbal tea and we will provide you with more information on what you should do post colonic.
"By the time the symptoms were bad enough to realize it was Celiacs Disease, I had already gotten into a fairly bad health state. Vegetable Juice and Fasting had helped but it wasn't untill I had Hydrotherapy treatment that I realised what it is like to live without the symptoms that had always seemed 'normal'.
The instant relief from chronic sinusitis after one treatment... was amazing. Over time I have experienced a general decline in all symptoms: psoriasis, arthritic, irritability, hot flushes, migraines etc
It is great to have a normal body temperature, the constant heat is gone. My complexion is even turning olive in line with my ancestry... very pleased indeed.
For anyone who has had Food Alergies, Skin Conditions, Candida or any GI Tract related problems I cannot recommend colonic hydrotherapy enough and the open water system at the perth colon health wellness clinic makes the experience as modest and comfortable as possible."
Before a Colonic Session
- Do not eat for 2 hours before your appointment and eat lightly on that day.
- Drink 4-6 glasses of water, first thing in the morning, with fresh squeezed lemon if you are having an am appointment or 1-2 litres if you are having a pm appointment.
- Whether you visit us or not, increase your water intake. You will feel the difference. At least 2.5 – 3 litres of filtered drinking water every day.
- Avoid gas-forming foods the previous day; beans, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, onions, cucumbers, melons, raw apples, bananas, or anything else that may give you gas.
- Abstaining from wheat and dairy for a few days can also be quite beneficial.
- Minimise caffeine, processed foods, alcohol, sugar, bread and fruit juice. Raw vegetable juice is more suitable than fruit juice.
- Eat lots of fresh vegetables, a little fruit and white meat, if required. Avoid red meat for 24 hours prior to colonic
After a Colonic Session
- Drink plenty of water to keep the toxins flushing from your body.
- Avoid gas forming foods for 2 days.
- Eat more laxative foods such as salads, vegetables, fruit (no bananas), juices, soups, fish, chicken, beets and carrot juice are very beneficial. Avoid eating raw vegetables 4-6 hours after a colonic.
- Avoid heavy meat consumption (beef and pork) for 8-12 hours. Chicken and fish is best.
- Avoid mucous forming foods such as dairy.
- Avoid strenuous exercise that day.
- After your treatment we will give you a herbal tea of your choice as well as a high potency probiotic to help re-establish the good bacteria in your colon.
- Most people experience a feeling of lightness and more energy after their treatment.
- Remember to continue to drink lots of water, at least 2.5 – 3 litres and continue your usual exercise routine. You will soon start to feel a difference.
- For some people bowel movements may not return for 2 or 3 days. This will indicate how long it takes for your food to pass through you (transit time). Transit time is ideally 24 hours.

"Dear Georgia, Just want to say a huge thank you for helping me. First I want to say a little about my history so you can tell others in the same boat as I was ( gee its finally nice to say was),
I'm 42 married and have 4 children aged 21 to 4, a farmer's wife and work part time.
In 2004 I started having problems going to the toilet, I went to Dr after Dr had colonoscopy
and was sent home with no answers so thought this was just my body only going to the toilet once or twice a month.
I would suffer back pain, tummy bloating and headaches and mood swings. This year I lost my step father & Mother in-law to cancer and my niece's boyfriend in a car crash all in seven months.
My sister in law and I looked after my mother in law for 9 weeks and my back pain was bad I was thinking it was from lifting her from bed to chair etc, I had a temp and was moody ( so my sister in-law said) My husband asked one morning when was the last time you went to the toilet? Good question!! I stated "When do I get time to think about that." I started to cry and yelling about my back and could not stand tall as my stomach hurt. So he got on the internet on the Saturday and found YOU. Perth Colon Health & wellness Centre. I phone you Georgia and the Monday I was in your centre for my first meeting you suggested I booked 6 sessions.
I had 3 sessions and felt taller and went home to the farm with the Udo's oil and probiotic. A week later I was back to finish my other session the fourth went OMG I did not think one could hold so much. I was called home as my mother in law passed away. So 4 weeks later I was back to finish my other 2 sessions, wow I feel great I lost the bloated tummy, my skin feels clean my moods changed I have a lot of energy and lost 5 kilos in weight. I now go to the toilet more, I am in my third session of 3 , just to keep my colon clean. I have still got a little way to go but I feel so much better.
Thanks Georgia, keep up the great work and I love your follow up phone calls of support & help. Finally someone that listens to me and believe I had a problem & that could help
Thanks" ~ Kylie
What is Colonic Hydrotherapy?
Colonic hydrotherapy or irrigation is a gentle internal bath using warm, purified water that can help to eliminate stored faecal matter, gas, mucus and toxic waste from the colon. A practice that dates back many hundreds of years. Colonics can also help strengthen and reshape the colon.
However, colonics have a much broader effect than simply cleansing the colon. Additional benefits can often be observed throughout the body in the form of clearer skin, more energy and mental clarity, fewer headaches, improvement in circulatory, immune and weight problems and many other positive side effects.
"In 1994 I was diagnosed with Lupus SLE. Many have said this was brought on by the strains of a death in my family and living in an abusive marriage, which then led to a messy break up with two young children involved and me not well enough to look after myself or them. I had no idea what an Auto Immune disease was so I allowed the Doctors to prescribe me some pretty heavy drugs, Plaquenil, Prednisolone, Methotrextate, I had side effects from these drugs and I took other prescribed drugs to aid the side effects. I lacked energy, I didn’t eat, I was bed ridden, the doctors provided no general wellness support and I was left to my own devices with some pretty potent medication, mostly having to work out for myself what worked and what didn’t.
Some days I even contemplated taking the whole lot at once to end it once and for all. I was fed up!! Fortunately for me I was introduced to natural therapy, after getting my diet and my mineral levels right in my body, I booked 3 sessions of Colon Hydrotherapy in 2009 recommended by Georgia Sheehan, I also did this in conjunction with the Liver and Gall Bladder Flush. The results were amazing and everyone has noticed the difference in me. I have not had to go back onto any prescribed medication, my symptoms have reduced to the point of not requiring any medication and I have hardly any pain. After a session I feel so alive and healthy and I haven’t felt that way for such a long time. I can highly recommend Colon Hydrotherapy and especially the Libbe system. Thank you Georgia you have helped save my life and given my family a mum, wife and daughter back." ~ Julie H.
