Colon Hydrotherapy at the Nutrition and Health Center
Colon hydrotherapy is the irrigation of the colon with purified water using disposable nozzles and hygienic equipment in a comfortable setting in order to evacuate the contents of the bowel. Colon hydrotherapy is often referred to as colonics, high colonics, colon therapy or colon irrigation. It is used as an alternative to oral purgatives prior to radiological and endoscopic examinations or for evacuation of an impacted colon.
Throughout history the practice of colon cleansing has been used to meet the medical needs of people everywhere. In fact, the age-old practice of colon cleansing was recorded as early as 1500 B.C. in an Egyptian document called the “Ebers Papyrus.”
The Nutrition and Health Center uses the Angel of Water system, which is the premier colon hydrotherapy system and is the first choice for hospitals around the world. It has a gravity-fed, open design that brings elegance, simplicity and dignity to colon irrigation. Three key points for Colon Hydrotherapy using the Angel of Water:
Hydration – Delivers water safely and comfortably to irrigate the colon.
Activation – Hydration activates peristalsis of the colon.
Evacuation – Peristalsis evacuates the contents of the colon.
