Is colon hydrotherapy safe or is it better to get fleet?

Neither: You are 38 and female. You are curious as to the benefit of colonic hydrotherapy or fleets enema. Ideally in your age group neither unless your doctor diagnosis you with a colonic problem.

How do you know if you need addition colonics with colon hydrotherapy?

Based on falsehood: You don't need additional colonics because you didn't need any in 1st place. Based on faulty science & false premise that txoins need to be washed out of the body.

What is colon hydrotherapy treatment?

Stay away from enema: Sounds like someone want to flush out the colon using water. This, is, also, called an enema.
