The LIBBE (Lower Intestine Bottom Bowel Evacuation System) is considered by some to be the most advanced colon hydrotherapy system in the world which has several positive features including:
The LIBBE is considered "open system" colon hydrotherapy equipment. What is the benefit of open system? In an open colon hydrotherapy session the cleanse is relaxing, safe, comfortable, and private, allowing client to be in control. On an open system, the rectal tube is only the approximate size of a No. 2 pencil. Upon initiating the treatment, your large intestines will gently fill up with warm water, and when you feel the urge or need to evacuate you simply push out as if initiating a bowel movement. The rectal tube will stay inserted and whatever needs to pass from the colon will pass around the tube and down the drain and through a visible clear tube so you can see the results.
- Therapist Controlled or Self-Operated

- Sterile-Disposable Rectal Tubes - "Size of a No 2 Pencil"

- Dignity and Modesty Maintained
- Therapists are Available to Instruct and Assist You Only When Needed
Two key reasons we chose the LIBBE system as our premier colon hydrotherapy equipment are:
Additionally, the LIBBE is FDA regulated as a Class II Medical Device. This FDA regulation and classification as a medical device intended for colon hydrotherapy when medically indicated, such as before radiological or endoscopic examinations, provides us with the government security of quality with a purpose.
- Your privacy and personal hygiene are maintained at all times, since the specially designed bed allows you to easily insert the "pencil thin" lubricated rectal tube by yourself. Many people find this reassuring and comforting.
- Clients that have experienced the LIBBE report that colonic irrigation using the open system is not uncomfortable at all. Because there is continuous inflow of water during the procedure, the LIBBE supports a more natural and gentle evacuation, and is suggested to enhance and stimulate peristalsis (action of the muscles of the colon), thus providing for an excellent workout for the colon.
Historical and Traditional Uses of Colon Hydrotherapy
Many common illnesses, both acute and chronic, may be alleviated by a program of detoxification and cleansing. As outlined in Phase IV of the 5 Phase Optimal Health Program©, detoxification is the pathway to healing and restoration. Colon hydrotherapy has historically been used and reported to be one of the most stimulating and efficient therapies for rapid detoxification and gastrointestinal health restoration. Many acute and chronic symptoms can be explained by congestive patterns coupled with poor elimination and detoxification. Colon Hydrotherapy historically has been used to help lessen these concerns, along with many other gastrointestinal problems that can eventually lead to disease in the body:
||Gas or Flatulence
||Poor Skin Tone/Acne
Signs and Symptoms associated Colon Toxicity general congestion and poor body detoxification:
|Tight or Stiff Neck
As you incorporate the 5 Phase Optimal Health Program© as your health outline and experience Phase IV detoxification and health restoration you will experience many benefits including:
||Motivation in Life
||Ability to Better Relax
|More Productive Lifestyle
|Improve Self Awareness
What To Expect During An Initial Colon Hydrotherapy Session?
After greetings and completion of initial paperwork, patients are introduced and oriented to the colon hydrotherapy room and procedures. At this time we will also discuss what you hope to accomplish through colon hydrotherapy. Next, you privately undress from the waist down, properly drape yourself, and then ring a bell to notify the therapist to return to the room. The therapist will instruct you how to correctly and comfortably position yourself on the LIBBE table and gently slide down and insert the "pencil sized" nozzle (rectal tube). If uncomfortable with self-insertion after explanation, the therapist is available as needed. The LIBBE rectal tube and/or nozzle are single use tubes that are properly disposed of after use.
After comfort is ensured, warm, temperature controlled water that has passed through a water purification and ultra violet light sanitizer, begins to pass through the rectal tube to gently begin to fill the large colon. The water is allowed to run until you feel the need to begin evacuation, at which time you simply "bear down" and fecal matter and colon contents release naturally and flow through a clear viewing tube to observe results. Water temperatures are at a safely maintained between 98F - 104F and can be adjusted based on patient comfort and therapist desired treatment goals. A series of fill and evacuations are performed to complete the session.
During the session, the client is instructed on massage, meditation, or other techniques to maximize their cleansing experience. The addition of therapeutic herbs, minerals or replacement colonic flora can be added as part of the therapeutic treatment plan for an additional expense. A trained colon hydrotherapist is always nearby to monitor and provide assistance and comfort as needed.
At session completion, the client is instructed to cleanse themselves using a hand held sprayer to rinse and clean prior to leaving the room. They are also instructed to remove and dispose of all tubing to aide in cleanliness. A general session lasts 45-50 minutes with the client's modesty protected at all times.
After each session, a bathroom is conveniently attached to the treatment room if further evacuation is required The LIBBE is then easily cleaned and disinfected by the therapist to prepare for next client.
How Often Should I Have Colon Hydrotherapy?
In general, we leave it up to the patient as they become more self-aware of their body. However, for optimum results it is recommended to do a series of about ten to twelve sessions. We recommend two sessions the first week, two the second week, then once a week thereafter for a minimum of four to six sessions. A maintenance plan is recommended after series of colonics is completed.
Maintenance requirements vary on an individual basis and have several factors (diet, exercise, personal toxin exposures, etc.) that affect each patient's need to cleanse. For some people it may be at the change of seasons or once per month, others may require several throughout the year or each time they are not feeling well. I recommend learning to understand and listen to your body.
After experiencing the benefits of detoxification and health restoration, you will have a desire to maintain and/or continue to improve your health and well-being through the techniques outlined in the 5 Phase Optimal Health Program©. Trying colon hydrotherapy may serve as your best avenue for health.
