Colonics 101: Preparing for Your First Appoinment
Please arrive 10 minutes early for your first appointment to fill out paperwork. The therapies take approximately 45 minutes but, expect to be at our office for an hour.
The client remains covered throughout the procedure lying on their back, and a colon hydrotherapist remains in the room to educate and ensure that the process is both comfortable and effective. The equipment is FDA registered, self- sanitizing and everything that touches the body is disposable. The water goes through a 4 filtration system and an ultraviolet light before entering the body to assure complete safety and sanitation. A small speculum is inserted in the opening of the rectum and water slowly fills the large intestine allowing the average 5-15 lbs of waste and bad bacteria to begin loosening. When the client expresses that they are feeling full, the therapist simply reverses the flow of water and the body begins to release all of the built up toxic waste. The machine is completely self-contained allowing all of the waste to pass through a view tube before disappearing into the traditional plumbing line without offensive odor or even the need to change positions. This fill and release cycle may be repeated a few times depending on each person’s needs and many times abdominal massage and acupressure points are utilized to increase success. When the session is complete the client receives a green drink to restore balance and probiotics to the body.
To ensure optimal results during your session many clients find it helpful to eliminate meats, dairy, sugar, grains and all processed foods during the two days prior to a Colonic. You may choose to eat raw veggies and fruits, cooked veggies, raw vegetable juices, smoothies, pureed soups and broths, protein shakes, healthy fats (olive, coconut, flax and Udo’s oils) and of course LOTS of water! It is best to begin reducing your intake of fluids the day of your appointment so that the bladder is not overly full during your colonic. Please Do Not Eat 2 hours before your appointment, this also makes the session more comfortable.
After the colonic, most people go straight back to work, run errands or continue on with the activities of a normal day. It is important to eat soon afterward or grab a smoothie, juice, protein shake or some kind of nourishment before you return to these activities. Generally warm, moist foods are a great first meal. Steamed Veggies with olive oil drizzled on top or a fish with both fins and scales, such as salmon or halibut, is a good choice. Jimbo’s is right around the corner!
