Colon Hydrotherapy gently fills the colon with warm triple-filtered filtered water through a small sterile rectal tube. When the water is flushed out, it carries with it any material that has built up in the large intestine(colon), waste matter, toxins and trapped gases.
The Angel of Water device open system provides more privacy, dignity and efficacy while offering the client a more relaxing, safe and comfortable treatment session. This system allows the client more control of their treatment. One distinct advantage with the open system device is the pencil-thin rectal tube. 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 (or if you prefer, the therapist can insert the rectal nozzle for you) 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 open system, the qualified therapist does not need to be there with you all the time. This affords you as much privacy as you may desire.
Colon therapy is useful for general detoxification and relief of constipation. If the large intestines becomes overloaded with toxins. It will in turn overload the liver, causing toxins to circulate in the blood, which can promote disease. A sluggish colon can cause too much bacteria to circulate in your body as toxins. The goals of each session are to hydrate the system, remove waste, and stimulate peristalsis.
Enemas are good to clean out the sigmoid and rectal areas of the colon, which extend to about 1ft. A series of colon-hydrotherapy treatments can clean out and remove impacted material from the whole colon which is about 5 ft long. Additionally, colon hydrotherapy promotes peristalsis and helps the colon muscles regain tone therefore assisting the return of regular bowel movements. One colonic is equivalent to 30 enemas.
Laxatives empty the colon short term but are an irritant to the lining of the colon. Therefore, the body produces a thin watery substance that goes through the colon and leaves behind impacted toxins and waste. Colon hydrotherapy uses pure water and does not irritate the body. One of the tremendous benefits is that it actually hydrates the body.

Once toxins are removed from the colon, the beneficial bacteria have a cleaner habitat facilitating their reproduction and multiplication, therefore achieving a positive bacterial balance. We Recommend using probiotics to repopulate the good bacteria.
