I-ACT Policy Statements:
I-ACT recommends the use of currently registered FDA equipment and only disposable speculums, rectal
tubes, or rectal nozzles. However, should the Therapist use reusable speculums, these speculums should,
at a minimum, be autoclaved for sanitation and cleanliness (30 minutes). Additionally, the autoclave unit
must be tested and inspected by competent authority at least four times per year- maintain documentation.
(Under NO conditions should a disposable speculum or rectal tube be reused).
I-ACT recognizes the FDA classifies equipment used to instill water into the colon through a nozzle
inserted into the rectum to evacuate the contents of the colon into three distinct classes; Class I (Enema
Kits), Class II and Class III are (Colon Irrigation Systems). Follow the guidelines of your manufacturer, as
approved by the FDA for the type of equipment (devices) you are using. Make no claims as to the use of
your device other than those approved by the FDA.
The main differences between Class I and Class II devices:
The code of federal regulations CFR 876.5210 & 876.5220 describe the differences between the Class I
and the Class II devices. From that regulation, a Class I device is an enema system and does not include
“colonic irrigation devices”. A “colon irrigation device” is a Class II device, which in part is described as:
“The system is designed to allow evacuation of the contents of the colon during the administration of the
colonic irrigation.
The Class I Device:
· The Class I device is defined as an enema system and may not have temperature control, temperature
gauges or water purification as part of the device. Class I enema systems must be self-administered.
· Manufacturers of Class I devices are not required to have third party oversight as they need not comply with the good manufacturing practices and record keeping that are required of Class II manufacturers. Class I devices are not as heavily regulated and controlled by the FDA as Class II devices are.
· Owners of Class I devices may not market their service using the terms “colonics or colonic irrigation” in describing the scope of their practice of evacuating the contents of the lower bowel.
The Class II Device:
· The Class II Device is a “colonic irrigation device”.
· Manufacturers of Class II devices are required to have third party oversight and must comply with
the good manufacturing practices and record keeping that are required by the FDA. Class II devices
are heavily regulated and controlled by the FDA.
· The FDA requires Class II devices to be sold and used on or at the order of a physician or health care
practitioner. This may be different in each state.
Although I-ACT is not aware of any laws that preclude you from assisting an individual with an enema,
I-ACT does want you to consider upgrading your equipment to the equipment that provides the greatest
safeguards to the public. In this profession, that would be equipment marketed as Class II devices.
Remember that I-ACT strongly recommends that all I-ACT members use FDA registered Class II devices
or devices equivalent to Class II devices regulated by the appropriate agency in your country. Only
individuals using FDA registered equipment will be placed on the I-ACT Web Site. Purchase equipment
at your own risk. Ensure you are in compliance with your local, state, federal and country guidelines.
Ensure that equipment you purchase is cleared for use in your country.
I-ACT recognizes there are two distinct types of colon irrigation systems; open and closed systems.
However, it is I-ACT policy that the colon hydrotherapist / technician is always in attendance / or is
immediately available to the client throughout the session. The degree of assistance is to be in compliance
with the instructions of the manufacturer of the equipment as registered with the FDA, and/or as directed
by a physician.
The policy on insertion is to follow the instruction of the referring physician; the guidelines of the
manufacturer as approved by the FDA; or the directives from the authority of your city, county, state, or
country ordinances.
I-ACT recommends that you do not put the initials (CT) for colon hydrotherapist after your name, write it out
in full. According to most state laws, putting initials after your name is not allowed unless you are licensed
or have a degree from an accredited professional school.
Advertising copy which states or implies that colon hydrotherapy can treat any disease, promise cure for
any disease, or that makes unsubstantiated medical claims SHALL NOT be used.

Letter to the Members from the I-ACT President
Information on Approved A&P Courses
Your students may take an A&P course through their local community college or university. If they have taken an Anatomy & Physiology course for massage, from a state licensed school that provided at least 45 hours of classroom time, that course will also count.
We just returned from our 2016 Convention. WOW!!!
If you weren’t there, you missed a fantastic event. We
had some fabulous speakers and a lots of camaraderie.
There is one course that may be used for the A&P pre-requisites.
We had visitors from across the Atlantic. Ian and Lynn
McDougall, representing RICTAT and Elaine Wilson,
representing IPCH attended our convention. It was
great seeing them again.
Your student may take the Delmar course through CENGAGE
Learning, ONLY if you as the instructor or school register with
Delmar and set up the program. It goes through you; students MAY
NOT call Delmar directly, it doesn’t work that way.
The Instructor must Contact:
Claudine DeChant: Cengage Learning at, 5 Maxwell Dr., Clifton
Park, NY 12065 (p) 518-348-2598.

I-ACT Quarterly Summer 2016
Dear Members,
I-ACT sends out E-Blasts to notify its members of Regional Meetings and
other important issues. If you are not receiving these E-Blasts, please
email the I-ACT Office and give your current e-mail address. We will
immediately put your email address on our E-Blast list.
Members Only Section of the I-ACT Web Site
If you have not been to our web site, please go to www.i-act.org. Go to the members only
section - contact the office for your Members Only password. In that location, you can
find the I-ACT Member Logo, and additional member information. In the future, those on
our E-Blast list will be sent the current password, so make sure that you are on our E-Blast
list to ensure that you receive the password for our I-ACT Member site.
Also, Brenda and Stan Watson came by and we had
a chance to talk to them. It was great seeing the old
friends and getting up to date with everyone.
No matter how many times I attend our conventions,
I am always awed by the friendship and the quality
of individuals that are in our profession. Colon
Hydrotherapists must be some of the finest people in
the world. Listening to the stories that you have shared
with me, and knowing how you care for your clients, it
makes me proud to be your Presidnt once again.
Look through this quarterly and see many of the photos
documenting the fantastic event. Read the quarterly
and see who the winners were for our Connie Allred,
Instructor of the Year, and, Colon Hydrotherapist of
the Year Awards.
In addition to great speakers and fun, the members
had a chance to input on the future of our Association.
We heard of potential new changes to our instructor
program. These suggested changes have been discussed
with our Instructors and the Education Committee will
be sending suggestions to the Board. The Board will
be discussing many of the ideas that have been worked
on for over two years, so keep reading the newsletter
to see what changes the Board approves. The changes
will probably happen during our 2017 Convention.
Our committees are all working hard to help bring new
changes to our profession and our association. If you
are interested in helping please contact the Committee
Chair. This is your association and we can always use
your help and ideas.
RUSSELL KOLBO
I-ACT PRESIDENT
As you can see, this is an
exciting time for I-ACT.
We are continuing to
work to strengthen
our
international
relationships.
Speaking of International,
the Colon Hydrotherapy
International Congress
(CHIC 2) is right around the corner. See the
registration information for that event which will be
held in Birmingham on Sunday, September 25, 2016.
We would love to see you there if you can make it.
What can you look forward to? Well, your Board
has listened to you and we heard that you are looking
for a convention with less expensive hotel rates.
Here it is... we are announcing that our 2017 I-ACT
Convention will be held in Las Vegas. The room
rates will be $82.00 (plus tax). That is the best rate
we have had for years. The actual Convention will
start on Thursday, June 15, 2017 and run through
Saturday, June 17, 2017. Of course, our Board
meeting and Committee meetings will precede the
convention as usual.
Consider this announcement as your “save the date”
notice. Place the 2017 Convention on your calendar
right now! We want to see you in Las Vegas.
But that is not all... we are negotiating a two year
contract with the hotel in Las Vegas so we can hold
our 2018 I-ACT Convention in Las Vegas and that
will coincide with the 2018 Colon Hydrotherapy
International Congress (CHIC 3). We will let you
know how this planning goes.
I know I speak for everyone on your Board, we are
excited about our future, and we are here to help you
and to serve you.

From The Desk Of: Belinda Massey, RN NBCHT President
To: All Members of NBCHT
We just returned from the 2016 Convention. I-ACT really knows how to put on a great convention. Thank you
for inviting us to participate.
We would like to recognize our fund raising chair person, Gloria Gilberé. She organized a fund raising event
that helped us raise $2280.00. This was raised due to the magnanimous donation by Mark Buse. He donated
all of the proceeds from the sale of his new book “Intestinal Health”. That is correct, all sales during the convention were donated to the NBCHT. THANK YOU Mark Buse!!!
That was fantastic, this truly helps us continue to improve our credentialing exam.
You all know how important credentialing is. It is different than simply being certified. The NBCHT Exam is
used by the only state in the US that licenses colon hydrotherapists, and that state is Florida. Being a “credentialing exam” means that the National Board exam is “legally defensible in the event of a judicial action
against a colon hydrotherapist”.
Professional liability insurance.
Allied Professional Insurance will write professional liability insurance for I-ACT members. You must be a current
member and keep your membership current to be eligible for the insurance. Contact the I-ACT office (210-366-2888)
for the application form, or go to the I-ACT web site - Members Only Section - and download the application from
the web site.
Doctors’ Insurance Agency also writes professional liability insurance for colon hydrotherapists. Email them at: [email protected]
doctorsagency.com. They are located at 6 Hamilton Landing, Suite 170, Novato, CA 94949. Phone 415-506-3030.
Another company, CM&F may write liability insurance for colon hydrotherapists (they have dropped numerous
therapists, but some are getting insurance. - call 800-221-4904, or go online to cmfgroup.com. It will be listed as
“Enterostomal Therapist.” They will put a rider in the policy stating colon hydrotherapy if you request; however, it
is not required - this depends on the underwriter of the insurance.
In Canada, try Lloyds of London - check with your local Lloyds of London agent. In the UK, try Balens Insurance
Brokers at 01684 893006.
In the Netherlands, try: Mark Hypotheken & Pensioenen B.V., Therese van Reeuwijk
Oude Delft 103, NL-2611 BD DELFT • tel. +31 152147543 • fax. +31 152126086 • www.markhypotheken.nl
Check around and choose the best policy for you. As other options become available, we will let you know. If you
hear of anything let us know.
The NBCHT is committed to making this exam available to any state that is seeking legislation to help speed
up the process and support the legislative effort.
We are happy to announce that we have just completed version 2 of the NBCHT exam. You can help by taking
the new NBCHT Exam - We have reduced the price to $200 for those that are already NBCHT Certified. This
price is good until Dec 31, 2016.
At the Convention, the NBCHT announced it is seriously considering making many changes to the current
CEU requirements. These suggested changes are below. Let us know if you have any concerns.
• Change policy to state that upon the yearly renewal, the member is to declare that they have 12 CEUs. That NBCHT will
do random audits to check for proof.
• If the I-ACT convention is used for CEUs, the member must attend 12 hours of lectures.
• CEUs for medical professionals may be accepted. These types of CEUs should reflect education to such things as HIV,
Hepatitis C, OSHA standards.
• Additionally, Massage, Nutritional Consulting, Reflexology, and systems training (on colon hydrotherapy devices), may
also be accepted just to name a few.
•Some of these CEUs can be easily obtained on line for very reasonable rates making it within reach for everyone’s budget.

COMMITTEE MINUTE
AWARDS
Marketing Committee Minute
Cathy Windland, Chairperson
Report for the Regional Reps Committee and Awards Committee
Tiffany Jablonski, Chair
Marketing means different things to different people, but for the I-ACT Marketing & Social Media Committee
it means building awareness of and support for the profession of colon hydrotherapy.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Regional Representative Committee meeting at
the annual Convention this year. Your dedication, participation and enthusiasm helped set
the tone for our members at this year’s convention.
Over the past several months, the committee has been brainstorming what needs to be done, resulting in a mind
map that identified five areas of concentration: branding (this area is bigger than the logo), events, internal (to/
for members), external (to/for general public, medical community and like organizations), and perception shift.
As explained at the Marketing Committee meeting during the recent annual convention, once the committee
had identified the major areas of concern, two priorities became apparent.
First, redesigning the Quarterly publication will help keep members informed and connected. Refreshing the
layout, improving the content, sharing relevant information and therapist stories, and educational opportunities
were all discussed as ways to enhance this membership publication. Members were asked to share their
stories as well as articles of relevance.
The second priority is I-ACTs online presence. The web site needs to be freshened, user-friendly and add
value to those who visit. Members shared many thoughts and ideas relating to the online presence, all of
which will be added to the mind map. All members were encouraged to “like” the official facebook page for
I-ACT which is International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT). It is important that members
“like” this page and begin interacting with it by liking posts, commenting on posts, and sharing posts.
Members shared ideas and gave input relating to the online presence. A mobile app was also discussed as a
possibility.
A special thank you to Sage Joya for stepping up and helping at the Regional Rep booth.
Your willingness to participate even though you are not a Regional Rep was so amazing
and inspiring.
If you’re wondering why I am writing this update, it’s because I just became the
chairperson for this committee at this year’s convention. I am excited to bring a fresh
and upbeat direction to this committee, and look forward to working with you all in the
months to come.
One of the new things we will be implementing this summer is regular meetings via the web. This will be a
monthly get together so we can work on how to get information to the membership as clearly and directly as
possible. For the Regional Reps that were not in the meeting, please contact me to get the dates and information
on the first web meeting.
The awards ceremony went beautifully… and I am pleased to once again announce this year’s winners.
Connie Allred Award ………………… Dorothy Chandler
Colon Hydrotherapy Instructor of the Year …….. James Allred
While there are so many aspects to marketing the Association, the Marketing & Social Media Committee
will continue to add to the mind map and prioritize the best ways to move forward. If you are interested in
participating in the Marketing Committee, please contact committee chair Cathy Windland; we would love to
have a few more people join us as we move forward.

to the industry.
Looking ahead, please keep in mind that you have until next spring to think about and nominate individuals
for next year’s awards. If you know someone who has gone above and beyond in our profession, please
consider nominating them for an award. I want to hear from you so that we can recognize those deserving of
recognition. See photos page 17.

ARTICLE
MARKETING
Three Steps to Your Ultimate Marketing Message
by Paul Clough
I’m not talking about some catchy slogan or play on words using the name of your
business or the service you provide. It’s not some meaningless phrase like “we
do it right” or “quality service you can trust.” Anybody in business can say those
things and they’re really basic expectations anyway.
A core marketing message clearly and concisely communicates what you’re out to do and for whom. It speaks
to your ideal target market and gets them to respond and seek more information.
Many business owners and professional service providers never take the time to create this for their business.
Most are creating a new message with every new “marketing campaign” and constantly trying new ideas.
And each new idea becomes a new chance to try and come up with that home run message that gets the phone
ringing off the hook like never before.
What you need is an ultimate core marketing message that communicates directly and powerfully to your
clients and prospective clients what it is they’ll get from your services.
Here are three steps to creating your own ultimate core marketing message:
1. Who do you want to help? Be as clear as you can on who your target market is. Take some time and define
with as much clarity as possible who your ideal clients are. If it’s not obvious who your message is directed to,
why would you expect anyone to get it?
2. What is the primary problem, issue, or challenge you would like to help someone in that target audience
solve? This is really at the heart of your core marketing message. Most people are consumed with their own
problems and looking for solutions to address them. When you can clearly articulate a problem your client is
dealing with, they’ll listen because you may be able to provide a solution.
3. What is the ultimate outcome or result your product or service can achieve? People want to know what
they’ll get from purchasing your product or working with you. When you’re prepared to demonstrate that
you’re focused on delivering an outcome they’d be interested in, they will pay attention and want to know
more.
That’s it. Now take your answers and boil them down to one or two clear sentences that you can deliver
enthusiastically and passionately either in person or through an advertising medium. Communicate this
message in everything you do.
Forget the catchy slogans. Create and start using your ultimate marketing message right now.

PA LEGISLATION
REPORT
PA Legislative Update from Convention
GILBERE CON’T
In February, 2015, legislation was introduced into the PA House of Representatives to license naturopathic
physicians. As introduced, the bill included colon hydrotherapy in the scope of practice, but did not include it in
the exclusions section of the bill; only hydrotherapy was listed as an excluded modality. If the bill were to pass
as introduced, it would mean that colon hydrotherapists in PA would have to stop practicing or become licensed
naturopathic physicians.
As soon as I-ACT became aware of PA HB516, the board went to work to get the bill amended to keep PA
therapists protected to continue practicing. Cathy Windland, PA member and board member, became a
registered lobbyist and took the cause to Harrisburg. While support was garnered amongst house committee
members to amend the bill, the attorney for the committee said that “hydrotherapy” (which is therapy IN water)
is the same as “colon hydrotherapy” (therapy WITH water) and there was no need to change the bill.
Thankfully, a professional lobbyist was located who helped navigate the waters and understood the importance
of getting the bill amended to keep colon hydrotherapy protected. When the bill passed the House on April 15,
2015, the lobbyist was engaged and began working on behalf of I-ACT and the colon hydrotherapists in PA.
The price of this engagement is $2,500 per month, and the lobbying effort needs to continue until this session of
the legislature ends in November, 2016, unless the bill is amended before that time. As of the beginning of this
year’s convention, the I-ACT board had approved to spend $5,000 for the lobbyist with another $7,500 being
raised through donations. Needless to say, that is not nearly enough to cover the costs incurred to date.
During the annual membership meeting at convention, a brief update was asked for on the legislation in
Pennsylvania. Cathy Windland gave a brief update, stating that if the bill passes without an amendment colon
hydrotherapists will be out of business; no grandfathering in, no loop holes, no more business. She also
announced that the lobbyist has made progress and has gotten the lobbyist for the naturopathic association to
understand the need for the amendment. If we can get this bill amended and passed in PA, other states will have
a precedent when a naturopathic bill is raised in their state. In other words, colon hydrotherapists in other states
will not have to fight so hard to maintain the right to practice colon hydrotherapy. We’re close, but still have
work to be done, and need to raise money.
A member attending the meeting suggested to “pass the hat” right then, so we did. Before the annual
membership meeting ended, $1,639 had been donated specifically to PA, and by the end of the convention,
enough money had been raised to another two months to the lobbyist. What an amazing outpouring of love and
support from our profession!!!
Thank you to everyone who donated! If you would like to support the PA efforts, please go to the I-ACT web
site and click on the button for PA donations. You can also send a check to or call the office with your credit
card information; just please be sure to earmark the donation for the PA legislative fund. Every little bit helps.
PA members, this year’s convention was a true stand of solidarity, a show of support to keep you practicing.
Now it’s time for you to step up to the plate and contribute to the cause as well. Please help us help you
and your clients. The time to get involved is NOW!

Membership Committee Outlook
Cathy Windland, Chairperson
Membership is the life blood of our Association, and the Membership Committee takes this very seriously. To
that end, the purpose of the Membership Committee is to promote membership in the organization through
recruitment, retention and recognition; creating a professional community for its members and associates; and
building active membership to sustain the organization into the future.
At this year’s annual convention, the Membership Committee engaged those in attendance in an open
discussion regarding growth, retention, member benefits, and perception shift. The brainstorming mind map
that has been done to date was shared, with three top priorities identified: growth with incentives for members
helping build the membership; possible new member benefits; and messaging for consistency in helping to shift
the perception of I-ACT membership.
The committee will continue to work diligently in the months to come to promote membership. The input from
the committee meeting will be added to the mind map and incorporated into the overall direction going forward.
These will all be taken to the board for decision and final implementation, so stay tuned for more details.
Knowing that membership is the life blood of any organization, the Membership Committee created buttons
for each attendee at the convention. These buttons were all about membership in I-ACT and how each member
matters. It was great to see so many members wearing their button and getting involved in connecting with
each other.
Interested in being part of the conversation? You can by simply contacting committee chair Cathy Windland
at [email protected] We want to connect with you to keep the conversation going throughout the year. If
you would like to be part of the committee, we
would enjoy having you join the group. Please
contact the committee chair, and get involved!
Remember, YOU MATTER!

FUNDRAISING
Fundraising Committee Article:
I hope you will take a moment of your time to read this committee report. Even though I am the
chairperson of the fundraising committee, I am also a member who has a strong respect for I-ACT
over the past 16 years and only want to see us make upward strides in our profession so we can hold
our heads high with pride and feel safe in our desired profession. When you read my report, I think
you will realize that you –“the members” – can make miracles happen…
The fundraising committee is here to help promote the value of colon hydrotherapists with action
and information on the legal rights to provide colon hydrotherapy within the United States and our
International neighbors. Our goal is to raise funds for legal and legislative representation. The aim
of our legislative efforts is to expand our outreach efforts to members and non-members alike. We
look forward to taking on the process of re-energizing and refocusing certain aspects of our legislative and educational
activities.
Our goals for this committee are to:
1. Provide funds for the basic operating costs of paying salaries of a state lobbyist, legal fees if needed.
2. Provide funds for savings account for future emergency costs. (i.e. loss of income, cease & desist orders, etc.)
3. Provide funds for "extra" needs related to legislative initiatives, such as, legal fees, travel fees for board members,
additional paperwork, expenses, etc.
4. Provide scholarship funds for members who need financial assistance to get to convention.
5. Explore a consistent source of income.
Over the last couple of months, the fundraising committee was able to launch the first ever GoFundMe account. Please
check it out at: https://www.gofundme.com/I-ACT. Make sure to share this and tell everyone you know about it.
I write this report with a heart that is overfilled with joy and gratitude after returning from our convention in St
Petersburg. Although this was one of our smaller conventions with about 150 members in attendance, it was packed
with so many memorable events. As the fundraising chairperson, I was gifted with a surprise from an anonymous donor
who offered to match all donations made to I-ACT during this year’s convention. During the initial passing of the hat we
raised $926.00. By the end of the convention between our GoFundMe account and money collected, we raised total of
$5168.50. Our matching fund donor added a check for $15,000.00 even though our members did not raise that much.
Thank you for your generosity. This total did not include funds raised during the silent auction which totaled $3018.50,
and did not include the funds raised for the PA legislative fund $5160.00. I am in awe of the amazing generosity of our
fellow colon hydrotherapists!
Some suggestions to raise funds would be to write a book other than the cookbook. This book will be written by the
colon therapists of I-ACT which we would offer to sell to our clients. The funds would then be deposited through
paypal and paid directly to the fundraising account. Here is a list of ideas for the books.
* Vegan recipes or positive affirmations
* E-book (since we are trying to go green)
* Comedic jokes for colon hydrotherapists (we all have funny poop jokes to tell)!
* We also want to suggest that each therapist place a donation jar on the front counter with the following notice:
Please Donate!
International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT) appreciates your interest in this fundraising endeavor. Your
contributions will support efforts to bring an awareness of colon hydrotherapy to the forefront of public interest. We
welcome your donation in whatever increment is right for you. Thank you so much for your support!
I am asking for volunteers who are interested in growing our industry. If you are interested please send an email to:
[email protected]
Thank you I-ACT members! You have made a real difference in helping to build the foundation of I-ACT.
With gratitude,

Guidelines
for Selling
Used Devices
S
tarting a new business, or
expanding an already established one,
often requires the purchase of more materials and often another device. As with any startup and/or expansion, monetary concerns play a major role.
Especially in the medical health services field, used equipment is often more
affordable and generally meets the requirements of the professional just fine. There are,
however, more concerns one faces when it comes to specifics about the purchase.
Knowing that the device will serve the intended function is most important and yet often
overlooked—not knowing what to look for should be the biggest concern.
Too often we base our decision centered on purchase price alone with the
description and condition provided by the seller that the device is in good working order.
As the seller, often the statement is made that only a few items need repair when, in fact,
the device is far from meeting FDA standards. We all have out dated equipment and
often sell to a broker that may or may not bring the device up to the standards of the
manufacturer. We strongly urge everyone who sells used devices to our members to bring
that equipment to manufacturer standards—let’s be honest, used devices can come with
many problems and the unexpected expenses to bring them up to standard are plentiful.
If the equipment needs repair/replacement parts or service, state that up front to avoid
consequences that can become unnecessary legal and ethical nightmares.
Some used devices are perfectly fine and ready to use, however, it’s my experience
many are not as advertised nor meet the buyer’s expectations. Age, amount of use and
especially damage due to shipment are issues no buyer chooses to encounter, nor should
they if communication and sales agreement is complete.
Unsuspecting therapists quite often find themselves in crisis mode trying to get the
device up and running—let’s be clear, used devices can be limited in their functionality.
Too often we base our decision centered on purchase price alone

Contacting the manufacturer with the serial
number will help in determining what issues need to be corrected prior to the sale. Data
like number of previous owners, maintenance, or lack of, and age have been valuable
tools in this regard.
Like most of us, we break much easier as we age. The following are generally
vulnerable parts of each system:
• Open systems show brittleness in certain areas such as tubing;
• Closed systems have seal problems as well as valves and ports not operating
properly, almost always a result of age and lack of use;
• In any style unit, the filters always need changing.
It is best practice to have the manufacturer check out the unit prior to the sale. It is
highly advisable to make the intended sale subject to a routine manufacturer check-up,
and get that contingency in writing. With that said, I have seen older devices function
very well when properly maintained and used
throughout their term of service.
Selling used devices to our members is a
responsibility that we all need to own-up to.
I-ACT members look to the quarterly for devices

April 14, 2016
I-ACT Mid West Regional Meeting Report
The Spring, 2016, Mid West Regional Meeting was held in St. Charles, Illinois, on April 10th. It was
hosted by Jennifer Stanley, owner of From Scratch Wellness. There were eight people in attendance:
Jennifer Stanley, Laura Dominick, Sandra Donvan, Deborah House, Oporto-Gomez, Renee Kowalczyk,
Carolyn Prince, Kathleen Phillips, and myself. Four attendees earned NBCHT CEU’s.
We carefully reviewed the information for all instructors and schools from the Education Committee
regarding some very significant proposed changes in our school training requirements. These proposed
changes were published in the I-ACT Quarterly Winter 2016 edition, as well as in a memo from our
President, Russell Kolbo, dated December 10, 2015. I would urge every member to review them.
Our guest speaker, Mr. Arne Toman, was very well received. He gave a wealth of information on how
to start a Google+ Business page. He reviewed social media etiquette and gave us links to many of the
sites. He was an excellent presenter.
Our next presenter was Jennifer Stanley. Her topic was “Improving CHT Results Using Visceral
Manipulation Techniques.” Twenty percent of women aged 18-50 have been diagnosed with chronic
pelvic pain. Jennifer has found that if the client receives a 30 minute visceral manipulation treatment
before the colon hydrotherapy session, the results are greatly enhanced. She urged us to partner with a
visceral manipulation therapist if we are not qualified to perform the technique.
Our round table discussions were also well received. This is the time for therapists to present questions,
concerns, and suggestions, which we did.
Cordially,

Three Paths to Restoring Trust
“Trust is the lubrication that makes it possible for organizations to work.” - Warren Bennis
We live in a very suspicious, untrusting culture. We don’t trust anyone. Researchers tell us that the police, the military and the clergy
are amongst the groups most distrusted. So it should come as no surprise when your employees sit down with you, chances are they will
not trust you either. They’ll at least be suspicious, ready to jump all over you when you make a mistake which calls into question your
trustworthiness. And it will happen; after all, you’re a human being; you will make mistakes.
So how can you build, or rebuild, a sense of trust with your co-workers or direct reports? Actually it’s not that hard and although it takes
time, the process can be accelerated. You just have to be determined to do it. The same process works, by the way, in our personal lives
where we often struggle with trust issues. Anywhere there are people who are trying to accomplish important things together, you can rest
assured there will be issues of trust and lack thereof: at work, at home, at your house of workshop, in the community.
There are three tracks we can take to build or restore trust. They are equally important and I will discuss them briefly in no particular order
of importance.

1. Apologize sincerely...without making excuses. When you make a mistake, apologize and say it like you mean it. Don’t excuse yourself
by blaming your poor performance on an outside event or circumstance. Accept ownership for the mistake. No “buts”....; anytime you hear
a “but” it’s fair to question the sincerity of the apology. Don’t be too quick to move away from how uncomfortable you are feeling. Don’t
move to quickly into what you are going to do to correct your mistake. Feel the mistake and allow others to sense your pain. This path opens
the door for members of your staff to do the same thing; it brings an atmosphere of reality and honesty to your discussions. No longer are
you talking about the way you wished things were or the way they are described in the brochure; you’re talking about things as they are; it’s
the foundation for improved performance from top to bottom.
2. Admit your mistakes and weaknesses; ask for help and feedback. If you feel insecure as a leader, this will be very hard to do. If on the
other hand you approach your responsibilities with a sense of self-confidence, you will accept the fact that you are not perfect and can
always improve your performance; like the professional athlete, always looking for the slightest bit of competitive advantage. And you ask
for honest feedback from your colleagues; feedback that you take seriously and use as the foundation for your own growth and development.
What a great model for your organization: that you, their leader, take concrete steps to improve your own performance, just as you expect
others to do.
3. Share your personal life experience; take a chance; be vulnerable. You’re familiar with the phrase, “business is business and personal is
personal...” Well trust me that is nothing but a self-protective excuse. The more we know about each other, the better we will be able to work
together. Yes you become vulnerable but it is that very vulnerability which makes you more trustworthy; it makes you human and more
believable. Some groups of employees do this periodically as a way of restoring a previously achieved level of trust. It always binds people
together in a new way. It can be low impact; everyone is in charge of how much they reveal, but as the trust level grows each person will feel
more comfortable in sharing what their personal life experiences look like. Often it’s these experiences which have a drastic impact on job
performance, but when shared with co-workers they become an avenue for mutual support and assistance.
Trust within an organization is important to the organization’s success. High trust organizations, as several studies have illustrated, are more
sustainable. But it is not a piece of equipment; it feeds on the relationships which develop between employees. It takes time to develop and
must be maintained.

MEETING

April 14, 2016
I-ACT Mid West Regional Meeting Report
The Spring, 2016, Mid West Regional Meeting was held in St. Charles, Illinois, on April 10th. It was
hosted by Jennifer Stanley, owner of From Scratch Wellness. There were eight people in attendance:
Jennifer Stanley, Laura Dominick, Sandra Donvan, Deborah House, Oporto-Gomez, Renee Kowalczyk,
Carolyn Prince, Kathleen Phillips, and myself. Four attendees earned NBCHT CEU’s.
We carefully reviewed the information for all instructors and schools from the Education Committee
regarding some very significant proposed changes in our school training requirements. These proposed
changes were published in the I-ACT Quarterly Winter 2016 edition, as well as in a memo from our
President, Russell Kolbo, dated December 10, 2015. I would urge every member to review them.
Our guest speaker, Mr. Arne Toman, was very well received. He gave a wealth of information on how
to start a Google+ Business page. He reviewed social media etiquette and gave us links to many of the
sites. He was an excellent presenter.
Our next presenter was Jennifer Stanley. Her topic was “Improving CHT Results Using Visceral
Manipulation Techniques.” Twenty percent of women aged 18-50 have been diagnosed with chronic
pelvic pain. Jennifer has found that if the client receives a 30 minute visceral manipulation treatment
before the colon hydrotherapy session, the results are greatly enhanced. She urged us to partner with a
visceral manipulation therapist if we are not qualified to perform the technique.
Our round table discussions were also well received. This is the time for therapists to present questions,
concerns, and suggestions, which we did.
Cordially,
Grace Melby
Mid West Regional Representative

Especially in the medical health services field, used equipment is often more

Knowing that the device will serve the intended function is most important and yet often
overlooked—not knowing what to look for should be the biggest concern.
Too often we base our decision centered on purchase price alone with the

devices within approved specifications.
Contacting the manufacturer with the serial
number will help in determining what issues need to be corrected prior to the sale. Data
like number of previous owners, maintenance, or lack of, and age have been valuable
tools in this regard.
Like most of us, we break much easier as we age. The following are generally
vulnerable parts of each system:
• Open systems show brittleness in certain areas such as tubing;
• Closed systems have seal problems as well as valves and ports not operating
properly, almost always a result of age and lack of use;
• In any style unit, the filters always need changing.
It is best practice to have the manufacturer check out the unit prior to the sale. It is
highly advisable to make the intended sale subject to a routine manufacturer check-up,
and get that contingency in writing. With that said, I have seen older devices function
very well when properly maintained and used
throughout their term of service.
Selling used devices to our members is a
responsibility that we all need to own-up to.
I-ACT members look to the quarterly for devices
that meet manufacture standards as well as those
of the FDA. That said, it’s the individuals selling
the devices whose responsibility it is to use ethical
and legal parameters when advertising,
representing and selling equipment.
IT’S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER that the I-ACT Quarterly is a non-profit publication
that accepts submissions—it DOES NOT in any way endorse or guarantee the validity
of the information. If an offering is published, it is up to you to investigate so a clear,
sound decision can be made.

FUNDRAISING
Fundraising Committee Article:
I hope you will take a moment of your time to read this committee report. Even though I am the
chairperson of the fundraising committee, I am also a member who has a strong respect for I-ACT
over the past 16 years and only want to see us make upward strides in our profession so we can hold
our heads high with pride and feel safe in our desired profession. When you read my report, I think
you will realize that you –“the members” – can make miracles happen…
The fundraising committee is here to help promote the value of colon hydrotherapists with action
and information on the legal rights to provide colon hydrotherapy within the United States and our
International neighbors. Our goal is to raise funds for legal and legislative representation. The aim
of our legislative efforts is to expand our outreach efforts to members and non-members alike. We
look forward to taking on the process of re-energizing and refocusing certain aspects of our legislative and educational
activities.
Our goals for this committee are to:
1. Provide funds for the basic operating costs of paying salaries of a state lobbyist, legal fees if needed.
2. Provide funds for savings account for future emergency costs. (i.e. loss of income, cease & desist orders, etc.)
3. Provide funds for "extra" needs related to legislative initiatives, such as, legal fees, travel fees for board members,
additional paperwork, expenses, etc.
4. Provide scholarship funds for members who need financial assistance to get to convention.
5. Explore a consistent source of income.
Over the last couple of months, the fundraising committee was able to launch the first ever GoFundMe account. Please
check it out at: https://www.gofundme.com/I-ACT. Make sure to share this and tell everyone you know about it.
I write this report with a heart that is overfilled with joy and gratitude after returning from our convention in St
Petersburg. Although this was one of our smaller conventions with about 150 members in attendance, it was packed
with so many memorable events. As the fundraising chairperson, I was gifted with a surprise from an anonymous donor
who offered to match all donations made to I-ACT during this year’s convention. During the initial passing of the hat we
raised $926.00. By the end of the convention between our GoFundMe account and money collected, we raised total of
$5168.50. Our matching fund donor added a check for $15,000.00 even though our members did not raise that much.
Thank you for your generosity. This total did not include funds raised during the silent auction which totaled $3018.50,
and did not include the funds raised for the PA legislative fund $5160.00. I am in awe of the amazing generosity of our
fellow colon hydrotherapists!
Some suggestions to raise funds would be to write a book other than the cookbook. This book will be written by the
colon therapists of I-ACT which we would offer to sell to our clients. The funds would then be deposited through
paypal and paid directly to the fundraising account. Here is a list of ideas for the books.
* Vegan recipes or positive affirmations
* E-book (since we are trying to go green)
* Comedic jokes for colon hydrotherapists (we all have funny poop jokes to tell)!
* We also want to suggest that each therapist place a donation jar on the front counter with the following notice:
Please Donate!
International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT) appreciates your interest in this fundraising endeavor. Your
contributions will support efforts to bring an awareness of colon hydrotherapy to the forefront of public interest. We
welcome your donation in whatever increment is right for you. Thank you so much for your support!
I am asking for volunteers who are interested in growing our industry. If you are interested please send an email to:
[email protected]
Thank you I-ACT members! You have made a real difference in helping to build the foundation of I-ACT.
With gratitude,

MEMBERSHIP
GILBERE CON’T
Membership Committee Outlook
Cathy Windland, Chairperson
Membership is the life blood of our Association, and the Membership Committee takes this very seriously. To
that end, the purpose of the Membership Committee is to promote membership in the organization through
recruitment, retention and recognition; creating a professional community for its members and associates; and
building active membership to sustain the organization into the future.
At this year’s annual convention, the Membership Committee engaged those in attendance in an open
discussion regarding growth, retention, member benefits, and perception shift. The brainstorming mind map
that has been done to date was shared, with three top priorities identified: growth with incentives for members
helping build the membership; possible new member benefits; and messaging for consistency in helping to shift
the perception of I-ACT membership.
The committee will continue to work diligently in the months to come to promote membership. The input from
the committee meeting will be added to the mind map and incorporated into the overall direction going forward.
These will all be taken to the board for decision and final implementation, so stay tuned for more details.
Knowing that membership is the life blood of any organization, the Membership Committee created buttons
for each attendee at the convention. These buttons were all about membership in I-ACT and how each member
matters. It was great to see so many members wearing their button and getting involved in connecting with
each other.
Interested in being part of the conversation? You can by simply contacting committee chair Cathy Windland
at [email protected] We want to connect with you to keep the conversation going throughout the year. If
you would like to be part of the committee, we
would enjoy having you join the group. Please
contact the committee chair, and get involved!
Remember, YOU MATTER!

PA LEGISLATION
REPORT
PA Legislative Update from Convention
GILBERE CON’T
In February, 2015, legislation was introduced into the PA House of Representatives to license naturopathic
physicians. As introduced, the bill included colon hydrotherapy in the scope of practice, but did not include it in
the exclusions section of the bill; only hydrotherapy was listed as an excluded modality. If the bill were to pass
as introduced, it would mean that colon hydrotherapists in PA would have to stop practicing or become licensed
naturopathic physicians.
As soon as I-ACT became aware of PA HB516, the board went to work to get the bill amended to keep PA
therapists protected to continue practicing. Cathy Windland, PA member and board member, became a
registered lobbyist and took the cause to Harrisburg. While support was garnered amongst house committee
members to amend the bill, the attorney for the committee said that “hydrotherapy” (which is therapy IN water)
is the same as “colon hydrotherapy” (therapy WITH water) and there was no need to change the bill.
Thankfully, a professional lobbyist was located who helped navigate the waters and understood the importance
of getting the bill amended to keep colon hydrotherapy protected. When the bill passed the House on April 15,
2015, the lobbyist was engaged and began working on behalf of I-ACT and the colon hydrotherapists in PA.
The price of this engagement is $2,500 per month, and the lobbying effort needs to continue until this session of
the legislature ends in November, 2016, unless the bill is amended before that time. As of the beginning of this
year’s convention, the I-ACT board had approved to spend $5,000 for the lobbyist with another $7,500 being
raised through donations. Needless to say, that is not nearly enough to cover the costs incurred to date.
During the annual membership meeting at convention, a brief update was asked for on the legislation in
Pennsylvania. Cathy Windland gave a brief update, stating that if the bill passes without an amendment colon
hydrotherapists will be out of business; no grandfathering in, no loop holes, no more business. She also
announced that the lobbyist has made progress and has gotten the lobbyist for the naturopathic association to
understand the need for the amendment. If we can get this bill amended and passed in PA, other states will have
a precedent when a naturopathic bill is raised in their state. In other words, colon hydrotherapists in other states
will not have to fight so hard to maintain the right to practice colon hydrotherapy. We’re close, but still have
work to be done, and need to raise money.
A member attending the meeting suggested to “pass the hat” right then, so we did. Before the annual
membership meeting ended, $1,639 had been donated specifically to PA, and by the end of the convention,
enough money had been raised to another two months to the lobbyist. What an amazing outpouring of love and
support from our profession!!!
Thank you to everyone who donated! If you would like to support the PA efforts, please go to the I-ACT web
site and click on the button for PA donations. You can also send a check to or call the office with your credit
card information; just please be sure to earmark the donation for the PA legislative fund. Every little bit helps.
PA members, this year’s convention was a true stand of solidarity, a show of support to keep you practicing.
Now it’s time for you to step up to the plate and contribute to the cause as well. Please help us help you
and your clients. The time to get involved is NOW!

ARTICLE
MARKETING
Three Steps to Your Ultimate Marketing Message
by Paul Clough
I’m not talking about some catchy slogan or play on words using the name of your
business or the service you provide. It’s not some meaningless phrase like “we
do it right” or “quality service you can trust.” Anybody in business can say those
things and they’re really basic expectations anyway.
A core marketing message clearly and concisely communicates what you’re out to do and for whom. It speaks
to your ideal target market and gets them to respond and seek more information.
Many business owners and professional service providers never take the time to create this for their business.
Most are creating a new message with every new “marketing campaign” and constantly trying new ideas.
And each new idea becomes a new chance to try and come up with that home run message that gets the phone
ringing off the hook like never before.
What you need is an ultimate core marketing message that communicates directly and powerfully to your
clients and prospective clients what it is they’ll get from your services.
Here are three steps to creating your own ultimate core marketing message:
1. Who do you want to help? Be as clear as you can on who your target market is. Take some time and define
with as much clarity as possible who your ideal clients are. If it’s not obvious who your message is directed to,
why would you expect anyone to get it?
2. What is the primary problem, issue, or challenge you would like to help someone in that target audience
solve? This is really at the heart of your core marketing message. Most people are consumed with their own
problems and looking for solutions to address them. When you can clearly articulate a problem your client is
dealing with, they’ll listen because you may be able to provide a solution.
3. What is the ultimate outcome or result your product or service can achieve? People want to know what
they’ll get from purchasing your product or working with you. When you’re prepared to demonstrate that
you’re focused on delivering an outcome they’d be interested in, they will pay attention and want to know
more.
That’s it. Now take your answers and boil them down to one or two clear sentences that you can deliver
enthusiastically and passionately either in person or through an advertising medium. Communicate this
message in everything you do.
Forget the catchy slogans. Create and start using your ultimate marketing message right now.

COMMITTEE MINUTE
AWARDS
Marketing Committee Minute
Cathy Windland, Chairperson
Report for the Regional Reps Committee and Awards Committee
Tiffany Jablonski, Chair
Marketing means different things to different people, but for the I-ACT Marketing & Social Media Committee
it means building awareness of and support for the profession of colon hydrotherapy.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Regional Representative Committee meeting at
the annual Convention this year. Your dedication, participation and enthusiasm helped set
the tone for our members at this year’s convention.
Over the past several months, the committee has been brainstorming what needs to be done, resulting in a mind
map that identified five areas of concentration: branding (this area is bigger than the logo), events, internal (to/
for members), external (to/for general public, medical community and like organizations), and perception shift.
As explained at the Marketing Committee meeting during the recent annual convention, once the committee
had identified the major areas of concern, two priorities became apparent.
First, redesigning the Quarterly publication will help keep members informed and connected. Refreshing the
layout, improving the content, sharing relevant information and therapist stories, and educational opportunities
were all discussed as ways to enhance this membership publication. Members were asked to share their
stories as well as articles of relevance.
The second priority is I-ACTs online presence. The web site needs to be freshened, user-friendly and add
value to those who visit. Members shared many thoughts and ideas relating to the online presence, all of
which will be added to the mind map. All members were encouraged to “like” the official facebook page for
I-ACT which is International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT). It is important that members
“like” this page and begin interacting with it by liking posts, commenting on posts, and sharing posts.
Members shared ideas and gave input relating to the online presence. A mobile app was also discussed as a
possibility.
A special thank you to Sage Joya for stepping up and helping at the Regional Rep booth.
Your willingness to participate even though you are not a Regional Rep was so amazing
and inspiring.
If you’re wondering why I am writing this update, it’s because I just became the
chairperson for this committee at this year’s convention. I am excited to bring a fresh
and upbeat direction to this committee, and look forward to working with you all in the
months to come.
One of the new things we will be implementing this summer is regular meetings via the web. This will be a
monthly get together so we can work on how to get information to the membership as clearly and directly as
possible. For the Regional Reps that were not in the meeting, please contact me to get the dates and information
on the first web meeting.
The awards ceremony went beautifully… and I am pleased to once again announce this year’s winners.
Connie Allred Award ………………… Dorothy Chandler
Colon Hydrotherapy Instructor of the Year …….. James Allred
While there are so many aspects to marketing the Association, the Marketing & Social Media Committee
will continue to add to the mind map and prioritize the best ways to move forward. If you are interested in
participating in the Marketing Committee, please contact committee chair Cathy Windland; we would love to
have a few more people join us as we move forward.

recognition. See photos page 17.

From The Desk Of: Belinda Massey, RN NBCHT President
To: All Members of NBCHT
We just returned from the 2016 Convention. I-ACT really knows how to put on a great convention. Thank you
for inviting us to participate.
We would like to recognize our fund raising chair person, Gloria Gilberé. She organized a fund raising event
that helped us raise $2280.00. This was raised due to the magnanimous donation by Mark Buse. He donated
all of the proceeds from the sale of his new book “Intestinal Health”. That is correct, all sales during the convention were donated to the NBCHT. THANK YOU Mark Buse!!!
That was fantastic, this truly helps us continue to improve our credentialing exam.
You all know how important credentialing is. It is different than simply being certified. The NBCHT Exam is
used by the only state in the US that licenses colon hydrotherapists, and that state is Florida. Being a “credentialing exam” means that the National Board exam is “legally defensible in the event of a judicial action
against a colon hydrotherapist”.
Professional liability insurance.
Allied Professional Insurance will write professional liability insurance for I-ACT members. You must be a current
member and keep your membership current to be eligible for the insurance. Contact the I-ACT office (210-366-2888)
for the application form, or go to the I-ACT web site - Members Only Section - and download the application from
the web site.
Doctors’ Insurance Agency also writes professional liability insurance for colon hydrotherapists. Email them at: [email protected]
doctorsagency.com. They are located at 6 Hamilton Landing, Suite 170, Novato, CA 94949. Phone 415-506-3030.
Another company, CM&F may write liability insurance for colon hydrotherapists (they have dropped numerous
therapists, but some are getting insurance. - call 800-221-4904, or go online to cmfgroup.com. It will be listed as
“Enterostomal Therapist.” They will put a rider in the policy stating colon hydrotherapy if you request; however, it
is not required - this depends on the underwriter of the insurance.
In Canada, try Lloyds of London - check with your local Lloyds of London agent. In the UK, try Balens Insurance
Brokers at 01684 893006.
In the Netherlands, try: Mark Hypotheken & Pensioenen B.V., Therese van Reeuwijk
Oude Delft 103, NL-2611 BD DELFT • tel. +31 152147543 • fax. +31 152126086 • www.markhypotheken.nl
Check around and choose the best policy for you. As other options become available, we will let you know. If you
hear of anything let us know.
The NBCHT is committed to making this exam available to any state that is seeking legislation to help speed
up the process and support the legislative effort.
We are happy to announce that we have just completed version 2 of the NBCHT exam. You can help by taking
the new NBCHT Exam - We have reduced the price to $200 for those that are already NBCHT Certified. This
price is good until Dec 31, 2016.
At the Convention, the NBCHT announced it is seriously considering making many changes to the current
CEU requirements. These suggested changes are below. Let us know if you have any concerns.
• Change policy to state that upon the yearly renewal, the member is to declare that they have 12 CEUs. That NBCHT will
do random audits to check for proof.
• If the I-ACT convention is used for CEUs, the member must attend 12 hours of lectures.
• CEUs for medical professionals may be accepted. These types of CEUs should reflect education to such things as HIV,
Hepatitis C, OSHA standards.
• Additionally, Massage, Nutritional Consulting, Reflexology, and systems training (on colon hydrotherapy devices), may
also be accepted just to name a few.
•Some of these CEUs can be easily obtained on line for very reasonable rates making it within reach for everyone’s budget.

Your students may take an A&P course through their local community college or university. If they have taken an Anatomy & Physiology course for massage, from a state licensed school that provided at least 45 hours of classroom time, that course will also count.
We just returned from our 2016 Convention. WOW!!!
If you weren’t there, you missed a fantastic event. We
had some fabulous speakers and a lots of camaraderie.
There is one course that may be used for the A&P pre-requisites.
We had visitors from across the Atlantic. Ian and Lynn
McDougall, representing RICTAT and Elaine Wilson,
representing IPCH attended our convention. It was
great seeing them again.
Your student may take the Delmar course through CENGAGE
Learning, ONLY if you as the instructor or school register with
Delmar and set up the program. It goes through you; students MAY
NOT call Delmar directly, it doesn’t work that way.
The Instructor must Contact:
Claudine DeChant: Cengage Learning at, 5 Maxwell Dr., Clifton
Park, NY 12065 (p) 518-348-2598.
or email: [email protected] Valid in the USA.

I-ACT Quarterly Summer 2016
Dear Members,
I-ACT sends out E-Blasts to notify its members of Regional Meetings and
other important issues. If you are not receiving these E-Blasts, please
email the I-ACT Office and give your current e-mail address. We will
immediately put your email address on our E-Blast list.
Members Only Section of the I-ACT Web Site
If you have not been to our web site, please go to www.i-act.org. Go to the members only
section - contact the office for your Members Only password. In that location, you can
find the I-ACT Member Logo, and additional member information. In the future, those on
our E-Blast list will be sent the current password, so make sure that you are on our E-Blast
list to ensure that you receive the password for our I-ACT Member site.
Also, Brenda and Stan Watson came by and we had
a chance to talk to them. It was great seeing the old
friends and getting up to date with everyone.
No matter how many times I attend our conventions,
I am always awed by the friendship and the quality
of individuals that are in our profession. Colon
Hydrotherapists must be some of the finest people in
the world. Listening to the stories that you have shared
with me, and knowing how you care for your clients, it
makes me proud to be your Presidnt once again.
Look through this quarterly and see many of the photos
documenting the fantastic event. Read the quarterly
and see who the winners were for our Connie Allred,
Instructor of the Year, and, Colon Hydrotherapist of
the Year Awards.
In addition to great speakers and fun, the members
had a chance to input on the future of our Association.
We heard of potential new changes to our instructor
program. These suggested changes have been discussed
with our Instructors and the Education Committee will
be sending suggestions to the Board. The Board will
be discussing many of the ideas that have been worked
on for over two years, so keep reading the newsletter
to see what changes the Board approves. The changes
will probably happen during our 2017 Convention.
Our committees are all working hard to help bring new
changes to our profession and our association. If you
are interested in helping please contact the Committee
Chair. This is your association and we can always use
your help and ideas.
RUSSELL KOLBO
I-ACT PRESIDENT
As you can see, this is an
exciting time for I-ACT.
We are continuing to
work to strengthen
our
international
relationships.
Speaking of International,
the Colon Hydrotherapy
International Congress
(CHIC 2) is right around the corner. See the
registration information for that event which will be
held in Birmingham on Sunday, September 25, 2016.
We would love to see you there if you can make it.
What can you look forward to? Well, your Board
has listened to you and we heard that you are looking
for a convention with less expensive hotel rates.
Here it is... we are announcing that our 2017 I-ACT
Convention will be held in Las Vegas. The room
rates will be $82.00 (plus tax). That is the best rate
we have had for years. The actual Convention will
start on Thursday, June 15, 2017 and run through
Saturday, June 17, 2017. Of course, our Board
meeting and Committee meetings will precede the
convention as usual.
Consider this announcement as your “save the date”
notice. Place the 2017 Convention on your calendar
right now! We want to see you in Las Vegas.
But that is not all... we are negotiating a two year
contract with the hotel in Las Vegas so we can hold
our 2018 I-ACT Convention in Las Vegas and that
will coincide with the 2018 Colon Hydrotherapy
International Congress (CHIC 3). We will let you
know how this planning goes.
I know I speak for everyone on your Board, we are
excited about our future, and we are here to help you
and to serve you.

I-ACT Policy Statements:
I-ACT recommends the use of currently registered FDA equipment and only disposable speculums, rectal
tubes, or rectal nozzles. However, should the Therapist use reusable speculums, these speculums should,
at a minimum, be autoclaved for sanitation and cleanliness (30 minutes). Additionally, the autoclave unit
must be tested and inspected by competent authority at least four times per year- maintain documentation.
(Under NO conditions should a disposable speculum or rectal tube be reused).
I-ACT recognizes the FDA classifies equipment used to instill water into the colon through a nozzle
inserted into the rectum to evacuate the contents of the colon into three distinct classes; Class I (Enema
Kits), Class II and Class III are (Colon Irrigation Systems). Follow the guidelines of your manufacturer, as
approved by the FDA for the type of equipment (devices) you are using. Make no claims as to the use of
your device other than those approved by the FDA.
The main differences between Class I and Class II devices:
The code of federal regulations CFR 876.5210 & 876.5220 describe the differences between the Class I
and the Class II devices. From that regulation, a Class I device is an enema system and does not include
“colonic irrigation devices”. A “colon irrigation device” is a Class II device, which in part is described as:
“The system is designed to allow evacuation of the contents of the colon during the administration of the
colonic irrigation.
The Class I Device:
· The Class I device is defined as an enema system and may not have temperature control, temperature
gauges or water purification as part of the device. Class I enema systems must be self-administered.
· Manufacturers of Class I devices are not required to have third party oversight as they need not comply with the good manufacturing practices and record keeping that are required of Class II manufacturers. Class I devices are not as heavily regulated and controlled by the FDA as Class II devices are.
· Owners of Class I devices may not market their service using the terms “colonics or colonic irrigation” in describing the scope of their practice of evacuating the contents of the lower bowel.
The Class II Device:
· The Class II Device is a “colonic irrigation device”.
· Manufacturers of Class II devices are required to have third party oversight and must comply with
the good manufacturing practices and record keeping that are required by the FDA. Class II devices
are heavily regulated and controlled by the FDA.
· The FDA requires Class II devices to be sold and used on or at the order of a physician or health care
practitioner. This may be different in each state.
Although I-ACT is not aware of any laws that preclude you from assisting an individual with an enema,
I-ACT does want you to consider upgrading your equipment to the equipment that provides the greatest
safeguards to the public. In this profession, that would be equipment marketed as Class II devices.
Remember that I-ACT strongly recommends that all I-ACT members use FDA registered Class II devices
or devices equivalent to Class II devices regulated by the appropriate agency in your country. Only
individuals using FDA registered equipment will be placed on the I-ACT Web Site. Purchase equipment
at your own risk. Ensure you are in compliance with your local, state, federal and country guidelines.
Ensure that equipment you purchase is cleared for use in your country.
I-ACT recognizes there are two distinct types of colon irrigation systems; open and closed systems.
However, it is I-ACT policy that the colon hydrotherapist / technician is always in attendance / or is
immediately available to the client throughout the session. The degree of assistance is to be in compliance
with the instructions of the manufacturer of the equipment as registered with the FDA, and/or as directed
by a physician.
The policy on insertion is to follow the instruction of the referring physician; the guidelines of the
manufacturer as approved by the FDA; or the directives from the authority of your city, county, state, or
country ordinances.
I-ACT recommends that you do not put the initials (CT) for colon hydrotherapist after your name, write it out
in full. According to most state laws, putting initials after your name is not allowed unless you are licensed
or have a degree from an accredited professional school.
Advertising copy which states or implies that colon hydrotherapy can treat any disease, promise cure for
any disease, or that makes unsubstantiated medical claims SHALL NOT be used.
