- Colon Hydrotherapy
The client receives a very effective cleanse on this device because the person is lying virtually flat, allowing the water to flow around the entire colon without the counter forces of gravity. During a 45 minute session the client will be flushed with up to 15 gallons of water. Dr. Bernard Jensen was involved in the design of the angle of the table and the rate of water flow.
The Colenz® is a gravity-fed device. The water gently hydrates the colon through a flexible rectal nozzle that is ¼” in diameter. There is a one-way check valve between the nozzle and the water tubing to prevent the back flow from the nozzle. The Colenz® has both a warm (98° to 102°) and a cool reservoir. There is no temperature control valve or gauge on the device but water from the two reservoirs can be mixed to reduce the temperature of the water from body temperature to a cooler flow as the client desires.
The Colenz® is an open device allowing the body to evacuate naturally. Larger solid pieces can be eliminated without having to fit through a speculum. The rectal nozzle is locked in place and moves to the side when the client eliminates the waste matter. The nozzle cannot be over-inserted into the colon because it is locked into the scoop on the catch basin.
The solid waste materials are collected on the bowl under the table for inspection at the end of the treatment. A spray of clear water under the table replaces the brown water and helps control the odor.
The unique design of the Colenz® allows the elimination of odor with a fan that forces the smell down the sewer without a separate venting system. The entire procedure is virtually odorless.
The Colenz® device is extremely easy to clean and sanitize. After inspection of the debris, the therapist opens the power flush valve and a concentrated stream of water forces the material down the drain. Within about 30 seconds the materials are gone and the therapist can spray a sanitizing solution onto the surfaces and rinse with the spray wand. The table surfaces are sanitized and dried and pads are cleaned with sanitizing wipes and put back into position. Sanitizing solution is added to the water reservoirs and is drained through the tubing. Following the rinsing of the tanks, the device is ready for the next client. The entire cleaning and sanitizing process can be done is less than 10 minutes.
The water temperature is regulated by a thermo control valve (equipped with back-flow valves) that is mounted on the wall close to the device. This is not part of the enema system. Once the water temperature is set, the client does not have access to adjust the temperature. Warm and cool water are delivered to the device with flexible stainless hoses.
