Preparing for your colonic

In the 24 hours prior to your Colon Hydrotherapy session, we suggest you "Juice Fast" primarily with seasonal organic vegetables and fruits. Drinking 6-8 glasses of water (bottled, filtered or distilled) daily will also assist in the cleansing process. On the day of your session, eat lightly, mostly vegetables, fruits and grains. Unless you are on a special regimen, do not eat in the 2 hours immediately prior to your appointment.

If your diet is medically supervised, please disregard any contradictory suggestions and adhere to your doctor's requirements.

If you would like to learn more about the procedure, we recommend the following books, some of which are available in our office.

After your colonic

At the close of your session, the movements of the colon muscles and the resulting releases may leave you feeling empty and relaxed. It is not unusual to wait 2-3 days for the first bowel movement. During this period, you may experience a heightened sensitivity to what you ingest. WE suggest that you abstain from eating gas-producing foods (listed below), foods you may be allergic to, and in the event of a Candida Condition, fruits. Taking Acidophilus or Bifidus at this time may be helpful. The activities and exercises we mention below may serve to enhance your well-being.

After receiving a colon hydrotherapy session, we have experienced that it is important:

1. To drink plenty of liquids:
Purified Water
Juices
Herbal Teas
Electrolyte Liquids

2. Replace Intestinal Flora:
Acidophilus

3. Eat pureed foods for 24 hours after the procedures. Pureed soups are also recommended.

4. Avoid eating raw vegetables for 3 days, cooked vegetables and raw fruit are sufficient. Chew well.

5. Reduce heavy meat consumption
