Colon hydrotherapy procedure is also known as Colon Irrigation or Colon Cleansing. This is natural way of eliminating waste products and toxins from the colon simply flushing fecal matter out of the colon, using water, much like an enema but much more effective, comfortable and purifying. This old method of purifying and healing body has been known since the ancient times.
Now days, colon hydrotherapy treatment become more popular because 90% of population of our country is constipating and have clogged colon due to the modern diets full of animal proteins, processed food, fat and sugar, and stress, with constant pressure and lack of exercise. As a result, the colon becomes the repository of accumulated waste and toxins, which disable the body’s purification system. This autointoxication can create imbalances in the body and may lead to weight gain and various health problems.
Miami Beauty Clinic has been using the best colon hydrotherapy system "Angel of Water" for many years. The efficacy and safety make “Angel of Water” ideal not only for body detox, improving overall wellbeing but preparation for colonoscopy or surgery.
Our certified colon hydrotherapist with 15 years of experience is a member of the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT). On the first appointment, she will explain, how the cleansing of the colon, that extends approximately five to six feet long, allows for the detoxification of the physical body in facilitating improving health, increasing energy and overall wellbeing.
- Why do colonics?
As a human beings we eat, breathe, and absorb. Unfortunately these days most everything that we eat, breathe, or absorb is toxic. Industry and automobiles pollute the air we breathe. Our food supply is poisoned with pesticides, chemicals, growth hormones, antibiotics, preservatives or harmful bacteria. The cosmetics and self-care products we use have harmful chemicals in them. Ultimately most of these toxins are being filtered by the body in one way or another and find their way into the colon to be eliminated.
Toxins from environmental pollution, undigested food and fecal material can collect for years due to chronic or occasional constipation.
The colon is your "main drain". An unhealthy colon is thought to be the cause of 90% of all diseases.
The normal stool transit time for a physically active person is 12-18 hours. In Western society where our lifestyle has become sedentary, the average transit time is 18-36 hours.
This slower transit time has several consequences:
As matter sits in the colon longer it begins to adhere to the internal walls. As this matter builds up there is less physical space for matter to move through. Thus reducing the efficiency of our detoxification system.
As toxic matter sits in the colon, eventually it gets reabsorbed through the lining of the colon back into the blood stream. Systemic toxicity compromises the body's immune defense, may cause mental confusion, fatigue, and oxidative stress which will hasten the aging process and put undue stress on the body ultimately leaving the body vulnerable to cancers and auto immune conditions.

- What Benefits can I Expect from Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy is not a cure, but it is a valuable procedure to assist your body to remove toxic materials, so it can no longer harm your body. Fecal debris built up over a long period is gently removed over a series of irrigations. Once this impacted material is removed, your colon can again begin its normal elimination function. A colon hydrotherapy session may be considered a rejuvenation treatment for your body. The best results of colon hydrotherapy one may expect in combination with adequate nutrient and fluid intake as well as exercise.

- How Many Colon Hydrotherapy Sessions Does One Need?
Of course, the number of colon hydrotherapy sessions desired will depend on the individual. Every person's goals will differ. Even though a person feels relief even after an initial session, it is necessary to take additional colonics to sufficiently cleanse the colon.
In our experience we have found that a course of 3 treatments over 2-3-week timeframe produces the best results with regular maintenance thereafter.
- What is the difference between colon hydrotherapy, enemas and laxatives?
Colon hydrotherapy is designed to cleanse, hydrate, and re-tone the entire length of the large intestine (approximately 5 to 6 feet) whereas an enema only reaches the lower part of the colon or about 1 foot. Laxatives generally contain drugs and chemicals that irritate the colon walls and are known for dehydrating the bowel instead of hydrating the system as with colon hydrotherapy.
- How long does a colonic session take?
Please allow 1.5 hours for your initial visit so the colon hydrotherapist has a chance to review your history, address questions, and perform the colonic session. Follow-up visits take approximately one hour.
- How should I prepare for the colonic?
We recommend that you refrain from eating at least two hours prior to your appointment and ensure that you are well hydrated. If possible, a diet of vegetables and grains 2-3 days in advance rather than heavy foods will help prepare your colon for the treatment. Do not drink alcohol 24 hours in advance.
- Can I get a colonic during my menstrual period?
Absolutely. In fact getting a colonic during your menstrual cycle is usually a good time to receive a treatment since your body is already cleansing. Your flow will not interfere with the success of the treatment.
- Is Colon Hydrotherapy Painful or Embarrassing?
An impacted colon can cause discomfort, and cramping may occur as the colon contracts to expel waste. Once the major impaction is removed, many actually find session pleasant. Your dignity is completely maintained in a private room. The odor from regular bowel movements does not exist.
- What Makes a Colonic So Special?
In a 45-minute session approximately 15 gallons of water or more is used to gently flush the colon. Through appropriate use of massage, pressure points, etc., the colon therapist is able to work loose and eliminate far more toxic waste than any other short-term technique.
- Can Colon Hydrotherapy Improve the Bacteria Balance in My body?
Perhaps in two ways:
- One way is to remove the toxins so the beneficial bacteria have a cleaner house to live in.
- The second is to introduce friendly bacteria, such as lactobacillus, acidophilus, and bifidus.
Colon hydrotherapy cleansings do not wash out intestinal flora. Taking probiotics subsequent to a colon cleansing is beneficial, because it helps to improve the bacterial balance in the colon.
Our colon hydrotherapy equipment is manufactured through compliance with strict FDA guidelines. It features temperature sensors, and built-in chemical sanitizing unit and water purification unit. We use only sterile disposable rectal nozzle and specific cleaning supplies that are FDA compliant.
- Can I use my insurance to pay for a colonic?
In most cases, the answer is no. However, if you are under the care of a GI doctor who prescribes colon hydrotherapy as a part of your treatment, you may be able to be reimbursed by your insurance company. Please check with your insurance company because we do not file insurance claims. Payment is required at the time of treatment.
