ACHA recognizes all Closed Methods of Colonic Irrigation as approved methods, and where:
The equipment (apparatus) is a "closed system" whereby it uses separate inlet and outlet hoses therefore allowing the water to be contained and used in a more therapeutic way.
The Therapist must be with the client at all times during the colonic session.
The equipment (apparatus) allows the therapist to view and assess the waste coming out of the colon.
There is no force placed on the colon at any time.
It is preferable (but not essential) that the equipment (apparatus) allows the water inserted in the colon, to be pulsed by the Therapist within the colon, acting as a form of internal massage, with the ability for the water to be directed to specific areas of the colon, thereby inciting specific organs or glands in the body to perform better.
It is preferable (but not essential) that the equipment (apparatus) allows for the temperature of the water to be changed to specific temperatures during the colonic.
It is preferable (but not essential) that the equipment (apparatus) allows for Oxygen to be included in the water.
ACHA INC will continue to investigate the various methods being used internationally to determine whether they meet with the above.
