How should I prepare for my colon hydrotherapy session? 

It is recommended to eat lightly the day of your session and stay away from all processed foods, carbs, fats, grease, dairy and flour.

 

It is best to eat water content hydrating foods, as this will help hydrate your colon. 

 

For example Leafy green vegetables, raw and cooked, cucumbers, watermelon, celery,  soups. 

Please refrain from eating anything heavy 2 hours prior to your session, as this can cause nausea.

 

Some choose to fast, or juice, which is completely your preference and choice. It is recommended before your cleansing, it's best to be as relaxed as possible and maintain a positive, cheerful attitude. 

Is Colon Hydrotherapy safe? 

What kind of medical device is used at Naya Wellness Center?

Yes. At Naya Wellness Center, the latest FDA approved Angel of Water® system is used. The Angel of Water®’s advanced design 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 and sessions with the Angel of Water® are much safer and easier than the common enema. Whether used prior to endoscopic or radio logical 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.

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 can be reached depending on how many sessions one is in need of. According to learned centenarian Dr. Norman Walker, “One colon irrigation is equivalent to 30 enemas.”

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 people, this is not accomplished in the first session. Depending on the condition of the individual, most patients can clean the entire colon with three to four sessions. The small intestine is not specifically involved, however, the small intestine may be cleansed with the help of an oral intestinal cleanser.

Are there any contraindications to Colon Hydrotherapy to 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.

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.

How long does a session take?

Actual session time is about 30-40 minutes, but please plan on 1 ½ hour for your first consultation with the session.

Does having a menstrual period at the time of a colon hydrotherapy session have any effect on the experience?  No. Most women consider it a great 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.

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?  

Usually not, however, everyone is different. Some report a slight feeling of tiredness, but this is similar to the feeling you have after exercising vigorously. 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?

90% of the time yes. You can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement. Some clients 

Will I be left alone during my session? 

No. A certified Angel of Water practitioner will be monitoring you throughout the session for both your comfort and safety.

Is Colon Hydrotherapy embarrassing?

No, 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?

It varies from case to case, as everyone's body is different and releases differently. It usually depends on the individual’s health, symptoms and goals. For example, someone that experiences chronic constipation (less than 1 bowel movement per day) may need several sessions few days in a row with a regimen of follow-up maintenance sessions to retrain the bowel as opposed to someone who is looking for preventative measures or just for an enhanced sense of well-being. Your suggested appointment schedule can be best determined during your first session while going over your history. As an average rule of thumb, anyone looking for general detoxification would need a total of 5 to 8 sessions over a 3 to 4 week period. Those choosing to do a deeper, more complete 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. Maintenance 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 to keep the toxic load at a minimum while continuing to decrease the burden on your other elimination organs (i.e. 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.
