Re: Explain open and closed methods of colon hydrotherapy?

An open system would be like a colema. The unit I have is the Ultimate Trends deluxe unit. This type of open unit is generally used by individuals in the privacy of their own home. These systems all generally include a board with a dome on one end, tubing and tips, some also include a fully plumbed solution container. The board is placed with the domed end on the toilet and the other on a household chari. The five gallon solution container must be elevated to allow for gravity to get the solution flowing. According to Dr. Bernard Jensen , 72 inches (plant hook in a stud in the ceiling)is the height to allow for right amount of gravity pressure for the solution flow. You then lay on the board with a pillow, insert the tip and relax. The unit is made in a way that makes it so you do not have to take the tip out to expell, you just do so and everything drops from you into the toilet, hense "Open System". The fact that the waste matter leaves the body and drops in to the toilet is what makes it an open system. An open system could also be called a gravity system because the flow of solution is controled by gravity rather some kind of pressure regulator. Colenz is a new professional unit on the market that encompasses the open system, but is hooked to the plumbing so temperature and pressure can be easily regulated with no need for a hanging solution container.

If you want to see a non professional open system, search on ebay for "colonic"

You can see the Colenz professional open system at

A closed system's tip includes an evacuation tube so that the BM leaves the body enclosed in the tube then on to the sewage plumbing. The waste goes from your body into the inserted tip then on through the plumbing. Because the tip must accommodate solids leaving the body, it tends to be large. This can be uncomfortable to insert with some short term discomfort after cleanse. With the closed system, inflow and out flow, temperature, and pressure are usually regulated by a practioner.

The majority of practitioners use a closed system. The closed colonic systems are FDA medical device class II's. FDA regulations now require Dr.'s supervision over medical device class II colonic system. Many clinics do not have an MD on staff and are finding the need for professional open systems like the Colenz mentioned above.
The Colenz professional open system is considered a Class I medical device and does not require a prescription or a doctors supervision.

Hope this info helped

Happy Cleansing
