The Different Colon Hydrotherapy Systems

Colon Hydrotherapy Overview

Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colonics or colonic irrigation is a natural treatment that has been used to flush out large intestine. In recent years, this technique has become very popular for cleansing of the large bowel system. Colon hydrotherapy provides the benefit of how our colon works by cleaning it from accumulated toxins and waste products that interrupt the digestion.

Colon Hydrotherapy vs Enema

Colon Hydrotherapy is different from enemas. While enemas can be done at home and usually is a one-time infusion with up to two litres of water, colonics are done through multiple infusions and must be done by a certified hydrotherapists using specific equipment. When a patient is given a colonic hydrotherapy, therapists use up to 125 litres of triple-filtered warm water to ensure the full cleansing of the large intestine. The procedure takes anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and the full cleanse continues with increased bowel movements within the first few hours after the procedure is done. Sometimes, optional chinese medicine herbs, herbs, coffee or probiotics implant is used for better toxic removal and assisting a liver with a toxic load.

What are Types of Colon Hydrotherapies?

Currently, there are two officially recognised types of colonics – Closed system and the open system. The closed system encompasses either the administering a colonic via Gravity or Pressure (aka Machine) and The open system frequently known as Angel of water. Both systems are effective and provide a natural, gentle and relaxing experience of colon cleansing. In our clinic we use “closed” techniques allowing waste materials go directly to a sewage line compared to the Angel by water which is done openly similar to releasing on a toilet.

Gravity Colon Hydrotherapy (CLOSED SYSTEM)

Gravity Colon Hydrotherapy uses the natural flow of water from the water tank under gravity into the body. Using the latest in water filtration technology, our custom-built treatment rooms use triple-ultra-purified water to dissolve and carry wastes away from the large intestine. Our technicians are certified and additionally trained in-house before joining our team.

Machine Colon Hydrotherapy (CLOSED SYSTEM)

While Gravity Colonics was the original method for cleansing of a large intestine, Machine method was designed to automate the process. While both techniques apply the same principles while cleaning large intestine, machine has two advantages that Gravity colonics does not. In the machine method, water temperature is controlled by the machine, so a technician doesn’t have to check the temperature constantly. Water pressure flaw can be set slightly higher for those individuals who required to do so. But by the end of a day, the results are absolutely the same.

Angel of water Colon Hydrotherapy (OPEN SYSTEM)

Similar to the two systems above, the angel of water system is the only system that can be self-administered, without the need of a therapist present. The releases are not done through a tube but rather similar to the process of releasing on the toilet.

In our Central London based Clinic "Medical Mindset Coach" situated at the Light Centre Monument, the gravity fed system is used which assists the body ridding the colon of toxin build-up with the natural forces (gravity type). Both, gravity colon hydrotherapy and pressure colonics, are equally effective in eliminating toxins and waste. Some people prefer the gravity colonics method, while others prefer the machine method. Some have tried both and didn’t notice any advantage of one over the other. After all, it really comes down to your personal connection with the therapist.
