WHAT IS A COLON HYDROTHERAPY SESSION LIKE?
A session is a comfortable experience for most people, however, if discomfort is experienced, the session can be stopped at anytime. Techniques utilized allow a small amount of water to flow into the colon, gently stimulating the colons natural peristaltic action to release softened waste. The inflow of a small amount of water and the release of waste may be repeated several times. The removal of waste should encourage better colon function elimination.
During the session, most clothing can be kept on and you will be draped, or a gown might be worn to ensure modesty. Your dignity is always maintained.
Currently their are two distinct types of colon irrigation systems, described as open or closed systems. The International Association of Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT) supports the use of either type of equipment. Our colonic devices are state of the art OPEN SYSTEM. This means a pencil thin tube is used. Furthermore, privacy is an option. Should the client choose to be alone during the session we are just a buzzer away to attend to whatever questions or needs they may have. CLOSED SYSTEM colonic devices use substantially larger tubes and require supervision by a therapist at all time.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR A COLONIC?
Colonics should be administered on an empty stomach or 2 hours after a meal. We suggest drinking plenty of water the day before (1/2-1 gallon). Hydration is also recommended prior to and after each session.
DIETARY SUGGESTIONS BEFORE & AFTER
We suggest eating a light meal both before and after a colonic such as soups, pasta, brown rice, quinoa, chicken, fish, cooked/steamed veggies or stewed fruits.
WE SUGGEST NOT EATING THE FOLLOWING 12 HOURS BEFORE & AFTER TREATMENT:
Due to potential for discomfort and bloating.
PROBIOTICS & ENZYMES
We recommend a steady use of probiotics and digestive enzymes after each session. Probiotics and enzymes should be consumed in general to maintain a healthy and balanced colon. Proper balance of intestinal flora as well as digestive enzymes generate a harmonious and happy colon.
kombucha (Fermented Tea)
Modern Colon irrigation equipment is manufactured through compliance with strict federal guidelines that dictate rigorous accountability. Disposable single use rectal tubes, and/or speculae are highly recommended. The facility should be immaculate.
CAUTION & RECOMMENDATIONS
Colon irrigation may not be for everyone, please check with your physician or health care practitioner prior to the session.
