According to Dr. Paul Flashner, MD, “colon hydrotherapy is the perfect specific procedure to eliminate constipation and restore normal bowel function. A lot of disease comes from imbalances in the colon, as manifested by inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, autoimmune diseases, allergies, multiple sclerosis, and certainly constipation. There is no question about the huge difference a health professional can bring to the patient by utilizing colon hydrotherapy plus other complementary and alternative methods of healing.” Read more
Patients need to understand that a colonic’s efficacy and safety is largely dependent on the quality of the colonic equipment used by the healthcare practitioner. At Fluid NYC, we only utilize Class II colonic equipment.
These days the most sophisticated equipment on the market are Class II devices. These are FDA-registered machines with superior filtration systems and disposable tubing for your safety. The Class II device is intended to instill water into the colon through a nozzle inserted into the rectum to cleanse the contents of the lower colon.
The device consists of a container for fluid connected to the nozzle via tubing and includes a system which enables the pressure, temperature, or flow of water through the nozzle to be controlled.
