How should I prepare for my colon hydrotherapy session?
Eat lightly and stay away from processed foods like carbs, fats, grease, dairy and flour.
Instead eat water content foods like leafy green veggies
It is best to eat water content hydrating foods, as this will help hydrate your colon.
Try not to eat 2 hours prior to your session to avoid nausea.
It is also acceptable to fast or juice as long as you maintain your strength for your session and don’t get cranky.
Is Colon Hydrotherapy safe?
What kind of medical device is used at Naya Wellness Center?
It is safe and in fact much safer than the common enema.
We use the latest FDA approved Angel of Water®. It’s advanced design brings elegance, simplicity and dignity to colon hydrotherapy.
The Angel of Water® is a gravity-fed open design, and is the premier and first choice colon hydrotherapy system for hospitals and clinics around the world. It is also the safest, simplest, and most effective solution for irrigating the colon for pre-operative procedures.
How does a Colon Hydrotherapy treatment compare to an enema?
An enema only reaches the rectum and lower part of the colon.
With colon hydrotherapy the entire length of the colon can be reached.
“One colon irrigation is equivalent to 30 enemas.” according to Centenarian Dr. Norman Walker
How much of the intestines are actually cleansed during a Colon Hydrotherapy session?
It is possible to cleanse the entire length of the colon during a professionally administered session, but for most this is not accomplished in the first session.
Depending on the condition of the individual, most can clean the entire colon with three to four sessions.
Are there any contraindications to
Colon Hydrotherapy using the Angel of Water?
Prior to your first session you will be given a contraindication list to consider.
We can talk about when you arrive.
If you have any major concerns about your health please consult your Doctor.
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 and EPA registered disinfectants leaves no danger of contamination.
How long does a session take?
The first time plan on 90 minutes with contraindication list and consultation.
Additional sessions are 35-45 minutes.
Does having a menstrual period at the time of a colon hydrotherapy session have any effect on the experience?
Your flow will not interfere with the success of the session.
Most women consider it a great time to have a session since your body is already cleansing.
What should I do to prepare for a colon hydrotherapy session?
Refrain from eating about 2 hours before the cleansing, be as relaxed as possible and maintain a positive, cheerful attitude.
Will I experience any intestinal discomfort or fatigue after the cleansing?
Everyone is different, but usually not. Some report feeling a bit tired, similar to the feeling you have after exercising vigorously, and other clients feel very energized. After a session, sipping warm liquids is usually very soothing.
Can I go to work directly after my colon hydrotherapy session?
Yes, 90% of the time you can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement.
Will I be left alone during my session?
A certified Angel of Water practitioner will be monitoring you throughout the session for your comfort and safety.
Is Colon Hydrotherapy embarrassing?
You are completely covered during the entire session, reclined and resting comfortably on the Angel of Water colon hydrotherapy device.
The trained therapist helps to ensure the individual maintains the utmost dignity during the session. It is a very relaxing experience.
How many session do I need?
Everyone's body is different and releases differently so it varies.
Usually it depends on the individual’s health, symptoms and goals.
Someone who experiences chronic constipation may need several sessions few days in a row, and perhaps follow-up sessions to retrain the bowel.
For someone who is looking for preventative measures or just for an enhanced sense of well-being, your sessions can be determined on your first visit while going over your history.
Complete detoxification would need a total of 5 to 8 sessions over a 3 to 4 week period.
Those choosing to do a deeper, more intense cleanse may opt for 10 to 15 sessions over 4 to 8 weeks.
Once your initial series is completed, maintenance can begin.
Maintenance sessions are recommended at 1 visit per month, and is necessary in order to continue all of the great benefits you have already given to your body with the initial series.
Monthly sessions help keep toxic load at a minimum while continuing to decrease the burden on your other elimination organs (liver, kidneys etc.).
Please keep in mind that even though one hydrotherapy session may be equivalent to several bowel movements, elimination during subsequent sessions can be even more substantial as older, hardened, impacted fecal matter is dislodged from the colon walls.
All that said there is never a commitment needed.
We are here to assist you in any way we can, and we will work with you to find the best way to meet your needs.
