Colon hydrotherapy what you need to know

1. Is colon hydrotherapy safe? Yes. In fact, with the Angel of Water, sessions are much safer and easier than the common enema.

2. How does a colon hydrotherapy treatment compare to an enema? An enema only reaches the rectum and lower part of the colon, whereas with colon hydrotherapy the entire length of the colon is reached and it is many more times effective. According to learned centenarian Dr. Norman Walker, “One colon irrigation is equivalent to 30 enemas.”

3. Do the treatments hurt? No. In fact many people report their colon hydrotherapy sessions as being both refreshing and relaxing.

4. How much of the intestines are actually cleansed during a colon hydrotherapy treatment? It is possible to cleanse the entire length of the colon during a professionally administered session. The small intestine is not specifically involved; however, the small intestine may be cleansed with the help of an oral intestinal cleanser.

5. Are there any contraindications to colon hydrotherapy using the Angel of Water? If you have a concern about your health or the appropriateness of colon hydrotherapy for you, you should consult your physician or licensed healthcare practitioner. Contraindications for the use of the Angel of Water include, but may not be limited to: recent colon, rectal or abdominal surgery, congestive heart failure, intestinal perforations, carcinoma of the rectum, fissures or fistula, severe hemorrhoids, abdominal hernia, renal insufficiency, first or last trimester of pregnancy and cirrhosis of the liver. Professionally administered colon hydrotherapy is otherwise very safe.

6. Is there any possibility of bacterial or viral contamination from prior use of the colon hydrotherapy equipment? The Angel of Water system uses single-use, sterile rectal nozzles. The use of sterile disposables coupled with the implementation of the Angel of Water’s multi-stage sanitation protocol with EPA registered disinfectants leaves no danger of contamination.

7. How long does a session take? Actual session time is about 30-40 minutes, but you should plan on about 1 ½ hours for your first consultation with session.

8. Does having a menstrual period at the time of a colon hydrotherapy session have any effect on the experience? No. Some consider it a good time to have a session since your body is already cleansing. Your flow will not interfere with the success of the session. However, some women prefer to wait until after their period is over to do a cleansing session.

9. What should I do to prepare for a colon hydrotherapy cleansing? Refrain from eating about 2 hours before the cleansing, be as relaxed as possible and maintain a positive, cheerful attitude.

10. Will I experience any intestinal discomfort or fatigue after the cleansing? Usually not, but everyone is different. Some report a slight feeling of tiredness, but this is similar to the feeling you have after exercising vigorously. After a session, sipping warm liquids is usually very soothing. If you have concerns, consult with your colon hydrotherapist.

11. Can I work directly after having colon hydrotherapy? Yes. You can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement.

12. Will I be left alone during the Angel of Water colon hydrotherapy session? No. A certified Angel of Water practitioner will be monitoring you throughout the session for both your comfort and safety.

Is colon hydrotherapy right for me?

The Angel of Water’s advanced design now brings elegance, simplicity and dignity to colon
hydrotherapy. The Angel of Water Surround, a gravity-fed open design, is the premier colon
hydrotherapy system and is the first choice for hospitals and clinics around the world. Whether
used prior to endoscopic or radiological exam, as a pre-operative preparatory procedure, or for
preventative maintenance programs, the Angel of Water is the safest, simplest and most effective
solution for irrigating the colon.
After the patient is comfortably positioned, the rectal nozzle is inserted about 1½ inches. A
gentle flow of gravity-fed, one-hundred degree water begins. Water flowing into the colon initiates
peristalsis and the patient responds by releasing water and waste repeatedly over the course of the
next 35 minutes. This progressive irrigation and hydration that starts at the rectum, goes through
the transverse section and then to the cecum, breaks up waste matter and achieves the complete
evacuation of the colon.

Colon hydrotherapy what Doctors and Practitioners Say

“And by all means, I prefer [that] my patients undergo colon hydrotherapy the morning of a colonoscopy. It’s a safe way to
cleanse the gut.”
Robert Charm, MD, Walnut Creek, CA
“I am very well acquainted with the colon’s functions, and my true belief is that colon hydrotherapy is the perfect cleansing
medium for preparing the patient for colonoscopy. It’s a much better way of getting the human colon ready for an operation than
having a patient swallow a gallon of that pre-surgery solution known as ‘Colon-Go-Lytely.’”
Leonard Smith, MD, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL

“I have used and worked with all three open colonic devices on the market, as both a client and a therapist. I love the Angel of
Water®. It is easy to use, comfortable and aesthetically appealing. The Angel of Water® also comes with the services of a very
professional staff at Lifestream, who are available for technical, emotional and educational assistance.”
Theresa Smith, RN, Phoenix, AZ
“I was looking for the most appropriate colon hydrotherapy equipment for my anti-aging medicine practice when I was introduced
to the Angel of Water®. I knew that this equipment would best fi t my busy practice and thought it the most aesthetic equipment
available for the intended purpose. My staff, patients and I have been very happy with the results of my choice and the system’s
ability to operate without odor. Most importantly, the equipment looks very welcoming and not intimidating at all.”
Maria Sulindro, MD, Pasadena, CA
“Our Healthy Glow Clinic has been using the Angel of Water® system for many years. Our concern has all along been cleanliness,
safety and effectiveness. We fi nd that Angel of Water® has fulfi lled all the above. Our clients have also expressed their satisfaction
with the system.”
Y.M. Wong, MD, Hydrohealth, Singapore

This progressive irrigation and hydration that starts at the rectum, goes through the transverse section and then to the cecum, breaks up waste matter and achieves the complete evacuation of the colon.

The Angel of Water Surround  Colon Hydrotherapy System is a very simple, safe, comfortable, and hygienic way to irrigate the colon for endoscopic, radiological, or other medical purposes. The following sequence of events briefly describes the colon irrigation procedure.

The tank is filled with hot and cold water controlled by a water mixing valve on the basin right topside. The proper temperature of the water falls between 99 -103 degrees Fahrenheit and is monitored by the temperature gauge visible on the front of the tower cabinet. If at any time the water rises above 103 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature sensor will trigger the flow valve to shut off, stopping water flow to the client.

A typical colon hydrotherapy session lasts approximately 30-40 minutes and uses approximately 8 gallons of water, which is the total volume capacity of the main tank. Usually, only one tank full of water is needed. After this is done, the client can rinse himself using the personal shower sprayer and its control valve located on the basin left topside. Tempered water is delivered to the sprayer by the same water mixing valve on the right topside of the basin that also sends water to the System tank. The client can then towel herself dry before dressing and leaving the privacy of the colon irrigation room.

Colon Hydrotherapy

Many people have pre-conceived ideas about Colonic Hydrotherapy (also know as colonic irrigation.) Our aim is to explain how the treatment is performed and give you some ideas as you whether it is something you would wish to undertake.

Colon Hydrotherapy is not a new treatment. In fact, it was used in hospitals until recent times when it was replaced by strong purgatives which are used for emptying the bowel before procedures or treating faecal impaction.

Colonic cdn

The colonic treatment stimulates bowel activity by using the body’s natural nerve and muscular response mechanisms, so is essentially a natural treatment. Laxatives are used to initiate a response by acting in different ways, such as by irritation or reversing the osmotic gradient.

By using the body’s natural nerve and muscular activity colonic hydrotherapy may help to tone and exercise the bowel, thus aiding the evacuation of waste both during and after treatment.

Colonic treatment is used as a naturopathic modality and clients who choose this treatment include those who suffer from various bowel conditions. One of the best things about colonic hydrotherapy is that the benefits of the treatment are very personal to the client. This means that as a client you will know how you feel after the treatment. You won’t need to be influenced by anyone else.

What is involved?

What is involved?

You do not need to make any special changes to your diet or lifestyle before a treatment, however many people choose to have a treatment when embarking upon a new health regime.

As registered, professional therapists, we are used to people feeling nervous, especially before a first treatment. Part of our job is to put you at ease and ensure you are comfortable having your treatment.

Colonic treatment
Colonic treatment

At your first appointment your therapist will take a full medical case history, and will explain the procedure and treatment process to you. Do not hesitate to ask any questions.

A brief rectal exam must be carried out and then the speculum is gently introduced 1.5 inches (4cm) into the rectum. This procedure should not be painful. If you feel any pain or discomfort please inform your therapist.

An inlet and outlet tube are attached to the outside of the speculum to provide a through-flow of water going in and water and waste going out. The waste is piped away, and since the whole system is closed, there is no odour.

After lying on your left side to allow the speculum to be gently inserted, your therapist will ask you to turn onto your back. To assist elimination of waste and gas pockets your therapist may use gentle abdominal massage techniques.

Sometimes herbal infusions are used during a colonic treatment and a probiotic (friendly bacteria) implant may be given afterwards if indicated. Again your therapist will discuss your treatment with you during the session.

How much water is used?

How much water is used?

Every treatment is individual, but as a guide we estimate around 60 litres of filtered water is used per treatment. However, only small amounts of water are allowed to enter the bowel at any one time. The water acts as a stimulant to tell the bowel it is full, and the bowel muscle responds by contracting and eliminating waste matter and the water. It acts in the same way as when your bowel is full normally and you have the feeling you want to go to the toilet.

The water pressure is carefully controlled and is in fact lower than is normally generated during a bowel movement.

In all the colonic treatment takes around 30-45 minutes on the couch.
