What to Expect
Do not eat 3 hours before your appointment and no liquids 1.5 – 2 hours prior. There is no downtime or recovery time. You can get a colonic on your lunch break and return to work. Before your first session, you will have time to ask any questions and express any concerns, and/or past medical history.
Upon entering the room, you will be instructed to empty your bladder and bowels, if necessary. During your session we are filling the colon with water, thus your bladder will get filled and you will have to urinate at the end of your session. Beginning your session with a full bladder may affect the efficacy of your session simply because you are tense and holding on to urination. This only applies to the Closed colonic. You can urinate during the Open colonic.
During a Colon Hydrotherapy treatment, you are completely covered with a hospital gown or sheet for privacy. The speculum is lubricated and inserted into the rectum, gently, slowly while you’re encouraged to breathe and relax. There should never be any pain during insertion. Once inserted, triple filtered and UV sanitized water begins to flow into your colon, stimulating the natural peristaltic action of the colon. There is no suction or vacuum in any colonic device. The water simply soaks, and softens waste.
Your therapist will be in constant communication with you explaining what they’re doing and asking what you’re feeling. You may experience slight cramping, pressure, nausea, heat, during your session. These sensations pass immediately upon your release of waste. Some people experience emotional release from past traumas or stress stored in the body.
Your therapist may ask your permission to massage your belly to assist elimination or you may do so yourself, always in a clockwise motion.
At the end of your session, speculum is slowly removed, and you will be given privacy to empty your colon of any residual water or matter.
After your session, your therapist will be there to answer any questions and go over potential additional remedies and lifestyle changes to maximize your next session and encourage true health and healing from the inside out.
How to Prepare
Drink at least 8-12 glasses of water daily (mostly when stomach is empty and not digesting food). The body is about 75% water and hydrates from the colon for the whole body.
If you are already hydrated, the Colon Hydrotherapy treatment will get your colon to focus more on cleansing.If you are dehydrated, we will spend much more time hydrating the body (like soaking dishes before washing them).
Eat for Colonic
Eating for your colonic is almost as important as receiving it. Eating light, high water content foods is extremely important and directly associated with you having a productive session.
Chew food really well and limit liquid during meals. Chewing food well stimulates the stomach to produce more digestive enzymes to break down food.
When you drink liquid with meals, it dilutes the digestive chemicals and food is less likely to break down and digest properly. It is important to digest food well to not only absorb nutrients better, but also to eliminate waste effectively.
You may want to add a digestive enzymes to your meals to further enhance your digestive abilities.
