Colon Hydrotherapy is referred to as colon irrigation, colonics, colon therapy or high enemas. Colon hydrotherapy is safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestines, without the use of drugs. The procedure is clean and relaxing. A soothing flow of filtered, temperature-controlled water gently circulates throughout the colon, coaxing your body to yield the digested toxins and waste that may have built up inside. Colon Hydrotherapy is ancient, time honored, gentle water cleansing of the colon. It is safe and relaxing procedure.
In our Center we use the LIBBE Colon Hydrotherapy System, which is an FDA-registered Class II medical device for colon cleansing. The Patient/Client undresses from the waist down and is properly draped during session. A small colon cleansing nozzle is gently and easily inserted in privacy. Colon cleansing nozzle are ‘size of a pencil’, single use, and disposed of after use. Water flows through a Carbon Filter which removes any sediment, rust, or chlorine. The water is purified by an Ultra Violet Purification System, before it passes through the colon cleansing nozzle. Water flows gently into the rectum and waste releases naturally. A gentle slow rate of UV purified-temperature safe water is fed from the gravity-fed Column. Less than TEN gallons of water may be used during the session at a safe temperature of 98 F. to 102 F. (36.8ºC to 38.ºC) (Water temperature is safely controlled and adjusted).
An Odor Exhaust System insures that the session room and entire center remains odor free. LIBBE base (table) has over three feet of clear viewing tube, which allows the patient/client and the therapist to easily view (without any odor) the waste during releases. A rinsing sprayer is used to rinse bottom after session. Sessions last approximately 45 minutes. Modesty is protected at all times.
One distinct advantage with the LIBBE device is the pencil-thin rectal tube, which clients find extremely comfortable. One of the key factors is that your privacy is protected at all times, since the specially designed bed allows you to easily insert the lubricated thin rectal tube by yourself. Many people find this deeply reassuring and comforting. Once the water flow is turned on, there is no need to interrupt the cleanse. Your colon will gently take in as much water as it can tolerate. When you feel the need to evacuate, you simply release. Because of the continuous inflow and release during the treatment, the body’s own muscles are used to provide a more natural, gentle release. At the same time, the peristalsis (action of the muscles of the colon) is greatly stimulated and this provides an excellent workout for the colon. Because of the nature of the LIBBE device, the therapist does not need to be there with you all the time. This affords you as much privacy as you may desire. A trained colon hydro therapist is always nearby to monitor and provide patient/client assistance and comfort as needed.
Why care about your colon?
The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store the waste material that most of us would rather not think about. The colon is a reflex organ, meaning there are electrical connections to all other parts and systems of the body. When waste material has accumulated over a long period of time it breaks down and become toxic. The body responds by slowing down other functions. This causes constipation and sluggish bowel movements which affect all other systems of the body. A healthy colon produces Vitamins B and K, and adsorbs water. The colon also adsorbs nutrients and cell salts back to into the blood stream. A healthy digestive tract helps support a healthy immune system.
Recommendations for someone with certain health conditions
Colon hydrotherapy may not be for everyone. There are conditions where a colonic treatment would not be performed.
These include conditions such as active colon infections or inflammation (for example, diverticulitis, Chrohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, etc) a painful fissure/fistula or painful hemorrhoids. Also some physical conditions such as severe abdominal or inguinal hernias which cannot be easily reduced or if you’ve had abdominal or rectal/colon surgery in the past 3 months. In such cases treatment cannot be carried out until they are healed or in remission.
Absolute contra-indications for Colon Hydrotherapy include some diseases such as congestive heart disease, severe uncontrolled hypertension, severe anemia, liver cirrhosis, kidney disease, severe hemorrhaging and colo-rectal carcinoma. If you as a client, or our therapists, are in any doubt, we will refer you to your health care practitioner for advice. Treatments are also not performed during pregnancy.
Before colon hydrotherapy session we will ask you about your full health history.
