The main functions of the colon are threefold:

  • To absorb water and vitamins/electrolytes from indigestible food matter.
  • To accept and store food remains that were not digested in the small intestine.
  • To eliminate solid waste (feces) from the body.

At Pure Living KC, our foremost priority is your health. We are the only colonic center in Greater Kanas City Area to offer the FDA-registered Angel of Water colon hydrotherapy system, to provide the safest and most hygienic colonic irrigation experience available. Our colon hydrotherapy equipment maintains the water temperature between 99 and 103 degrees — the optimal range for effective intestinal cleansing.

Water flows through a carbon filter, which removes any sediment, rust or chlorine. The water is then purified again, by an Ultra Violet purification system, before it enters the body. It’s slightly warmed before being gravity-fed down to the base unit where the client is comfortably reclined and draped. The water is temperature-controlled, purified and carefully introduced into the body via the rectal tube. The tube stays in place throughout the treatment, held there by the sphincter muscles, while water and feces release naturally around it. Waste then flows into a well beneath your bottom and out to the sewerage system. The device has a viewing tube so you can see what is coming out of your system. An odor exhaust fan ensures the session room remains odor free.

Equipment – Angle Of Water
The Session

Colon Cleansing is a gentle cleansing of the large intestine. At Pure Living KC I use state-of-the-art FDA registered Angle of Water devices. The client lies on a basin connected to a Colon Cleansing device, with a new disposable rectal nozzle, while water gently circulates into the colon. When slight pressure builds up in the colon, the water can release. As water is flowing out through an illuminated glass viewing tube, the client can view their elimination. This process is repeated during the approximately 35-45 minute session. To ensure maximum sanitation, we use a new disposable rectal nozzle for each client. Clients wear gowns for privacy, ease and comfort during the session.

Colon Cleansing’s main strength is hydration and can impact the whole digestive system. Almost anyone can benefit from internal cleansing. Most people feel great after their session; others may feel differently according to what they have eliminated. It can be compared to deep cleaning a house…what was hidden? These effects can vary from person to person and is normally of short duration. I can give more information for each personal experience.

Before a Session
  • The days before the appointment eat as many water content foods as possible, examples: raw and cooked green leafy vegetables, raw vegetable drinks and whole grains. This will start hydrating the colon to ease your experience.
  • Try to cut down on all processed foods, examples: white flour products, cheese, dried foods, greasy foods and sugar. These foods have a tendency to dehydrate the colon and can make the experience more challenging.
  • Avoid eating 2 hours before the colon hydrotherapy appointment.
  • Avoid drinking liquids 1 hour before. It can make your bladder full during the colon hydrotherapy session.
  • Avoid all diuretic foods one day prior to your appointment, including; coffee, tea or soda. These can dehydrate and also make the bladder full.
After a Session
  • It is best to eat light foods that are easy on the digestive system, example; steamed vegetables, soup and light protein (fish, chicken, tofu…), avoiding nuts, salads and icy foods and drinks, since the colon just exercised.
  • Drink more water to continue hydrating.
  • Adding 1 tbsp. of chlorophyll or ¼ tsp. pink salt to your water will help absorption.
  • Adding 2 tbsp. of lemon or 1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar in your water can help alkalinize.
  • Days following the session should be filled with vegetables (raw and steamed), soup, fruits, whole grains and pure water (not tap). Salads and raw foods have great enzymes and fiber.
  • For better health, avoid anything processed, bottled or canned; sugar, pasteurized dairy and all whites/starches (sugar, flour, rice).
  • A nutritionist can create a detailed plan for you.
How Many Sessions Do You Need?

For people that have never had a colonic, or if it has been a long time since your last colonic, most people choose a series of 3 or 4 in a 7 to 10 day period. Depending on each individual’s challenges and health goals, more or fewer sessions may be needed. The main goal with Colon Cleansing sessions is to hydrate and eliminate waste to achieve a clean colon. It is rare that this is achieved in a single session. On the first session, the body will experience hydration and sometimes little waste material comes out. The result may depend on several factors including the ability of the body to relax, the health condition of the colon, diet and water intake to name a few. Knowing that the length of the colon is approximately 5.5 feet in length, in most people it may take a few sessions to allow full hydration and better elimination
