What Is The Open System Of Colon Hydrotherapy?

The open system uses the LIBBE (Lower Intestinal Bottom Bowel Evacuation) Device.

The LIBBE Bed Features include:

  • Water is gravity-fed through a small pencil thin rectal tube resulting in gentle, slow releases of toxic waste

  • You remain in control, along with the therapist, throughout the session – the therapist is always in and out if the room & close by

  • The open system offers a very private and relaxed atmosphere mostly controlled by YOU. In comparison, the closed system of colon hydrotherapy involves a therapist inserting a larger-sized speculum into the rectum

Water flows through a carbon filter, which removes any sediment, rust or chlorine. The water is then purified by an Ultra Violet purification system, before it enters the body.

A gentle slow rate of purified, temperature safe water is then gravity fed through the tube. Faeces releases naturally. An odour exhaust system ensures the session room remains odour free.

During a treatment, the client will experience several gentle fills and releases of water which eliminates the debris of putrefied and impacted faecal matter, excessive mucus, gases and in some instances, one or more forms of parasites.

Gently filling and emptying the colon of water improves the peristaltic (wave-like) muscle action, which increases your transit time of waste material and your natural ability to eliminate.

What Will Happen At My Appointment?

You can expect the following at your colon hydrotherapy session:

  • Initial discussion of your health goals with your fully trained and certified Colon Hydrotherapist

  • Your therapist will explain the function and directions of the LIBBE device

  • You’ll be left in complete privacy

  • Remove pencil-sized tube out of sterilized packaging

  • Gently and easily insert the tube into your rectum

  • Cover yourself from the waist down with the sheet, ring the bell for the therapist to return to get you started

  • Wait as water flows through a carbon filter and is purified by the device’s UV system

  • A gentle slow stream of purified warm water is then gravity fed through the tube into your colon

  • Your colon then releases its contents naturally

  • You session will last approximately 40 minutes, in this time the gentle fills and releases occur to eliminate as much debris as possible

  • Clean yourself with a rinsing spray nozzle after the session

  • Relax in the lounge with a cup of herbal tea and a high potency probiotic

You may also choose to request the Colon Hydrotherapist apply heat packs, a hand-held massager is available to assist the release process.

Your privacy and dignity remain of the upmost importance at all times.

What Should I Do Before My Appointment?

We recommend you follow a few simple instructions prior to your session, including:

  • Don’t eat for 2 hours before your appointment

  • If your appointment is in the morning, drink 4-6 glasses of water with fresh squeezed lemon when you first wake up. If you’re having an afternoon appointment, please drink 1-2 litres of water in the hours prior to the session

  • Avoid gas-forming foods the previous day. These foods usually include beans, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, onions, cucumber, melons, raw apples and bananas

  • Abstaining from wheat and dairy for a few days prior can also be beneficial, but is not essential

  • Avoid caffeine, processed foods, alcohol, sugar, bread and fruit juice. Raw vegetable juice is preferable to fruit juice

  • Eat lots of fresh vegetables, a little fruit and white meat

  • Avoid red meat for 24 hours before the session

What Will I Need To Do After The Session?

Your Colon Hydrotherapist will speak with you after the session to ensure you have all the information needed.

The following simple steps are recommended:

  • Drink plenty of water to keep flushing out toxins

  • Avoid gas-forming foods for 2 days

  • Eat more laxative foods such as salads, vegetables, fruit (no bananas), juices, soups, fish, chicken, beets and carrot juice

  • Avoid heavy meat consumption (beef and pork) for 8-12 hours.  Chicken and fish are better choice

  • Avoid mucous-forming food such as dairy products

  • Avoid strenuous exercise on the day of the session

  • Remember to continue drinking 2-3 litres of water per day

  • Continue your exercise routine

For some people, bowel movements may not return for 2 or 3 days. This will indicate how long it takes for your food to pass through you (transit time). Transit time is ideally 24 hours.
