The profession of colon hydrotherapy has undergone many changes over the past few decades. One of the biggest changes is the use of FDA cleared instruments. Our professional organization, the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT) strongly recommends that consumers seek the services of a therapist who is CERTIFIED by I-ACT or has the required LICENSE if they are practicing in the State of Florida. Some people have been trained for a day or two by the manufacturer and are not "certified" nor "licensed". The consumer must verify that the therapist has passed the minimum 100-hour program before practicing. Please click on the word GRADUATES to find our highly qualified professionals. The recommendation is also made that consumers be sure that the therapist is using an FDA cleared instrument and disposable tubing. These higher standards have been set in place so that the public is protected. Many technicians use homemade devices with little or no safety features. Very often they reuse rubber tubing with stainless steel speculums and without proper sanitation practices, cross contamination is possible. The units that are FDA cleared have internal cleansing systems that use a hospital-grade disinfectant as well as disposable tubing that is discarded after each use. We feel that we offer a greater measure of safety to our consumers by using the highest standard in the industry. In order to protect the public, the FDA guidelines state that a prescription must be presented to the therapist before providing the service of colon hydrotherapy. Unfortunately, many medical doctors have no knowledge of this modality. We must rely on the educated consumer to take this information to their medical doctors and ask for prescriptions. This provides the therapist with a written order from a physician that it is safe to treat the consumer. We have included a SAMPLE letter that may be sent or given to a medical doctor or other licensed professional allowed by their state law to write prescriptions. This may include nurse practitioners, dentists, naturopathic doctors, etc. The consumer must research this in his or her own state to secure this prescription. We are proud users of the FDA cleared Dotolo Toxygen Instrument. Dotolo has been manufacturing this device here in Florida since 1985 and has a superior customer service record. It also carries the CE mark that means it has achieved acclaim abroad. This company was the originator of the internal cleaning system that cleanses the device with a hospital-grade disinfectant after each use. It also has a state-of-the-art 3-stage filtration system that includes ultraviolet light to guarantee the purest water. Many municipal water systems use large amounts of chlorine and research has shown that certain microbes are immune to it, including cryptosporidium. Our UV light zaps the water just like sunshine and kills 99.9% of all microbes before they enter the consumer's body. Please follow these guidelines if you are interested in exploring this wonderful therapy.
