Since the beginning of the 20th century, Spain, similar to other developed countries, has been using chlorine to treat the water. While it is the most economical method to eliminate pathogenic bacteria, it also has some disadvantages and adverse effects that we should take into account:
The water that we consume daily comes from the mountains, rivers and tributaries, picking up a significant amount of organic matter along its way. When this organic matter comes in contact with chlorine during the purification process two highly toxic substances called trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids are produced which, according to studies, are said to be highly carcinogenic. We recommend searching the internet for more information on this topic.
In the section, “What is the colon and how does it function”, we explain that one of the functions of the intestine is the absorption of water. The walls of the intestine are porous and absorb water, helping to create more solid stools prior to evacuation.
For this reason, you can understand why it is not appropriate to use tap water if one is trying to maintain, or improve, good internal hygiene. The water would not only alter intestational PH, but the toxic byproducts found in the tap water would also be absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
In sum, NOT JUST ANY WATER, especially tap water, CAN BE USED to perform colon hydrotherapy.
The European Institute of Colon Hydrotherapy® is the only colon hydrotherapy center in Europe that has a biological industrial plant for filtering, naturalization, ozonation and sterilization of water, in addition to a triple filtration system of 5 microns.
Our automatic filtration and sterilization plant self-cleans twice a day and we control the water quality from eight o’clock in the morning until two o’clock in the afternoon. Additionally, the filters are changed monthly. All of these routines are carried out order to guarantee water of the highest quality and purity.
We use biologically healthy, sterilize, and naturalized water without any chemical agents, because the quality and purity of the water is our top priority.
To achieve maximum quality, we have small laboratories in our facilities where we perform a daily quality control, in addition to carrying out monthly external audits of water quality control in specialized laboratories that comply with ISO Quality Standards.
