  • Drink 4-6 glasses of water with 1/2 fresh squeezed lemon juice if you have a morning appointment or 1-2 glasses if you have an afternoon appointment.
  • Avoid gas-forming foods the previous day
    • beans, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, onions, cucumbers, melons, raw apples, bananas, or anything else that gives you gas.
  • Apply an abdominal castor pack for 1 hour 3 days in a row before your appointment. Pre-warm the pack but do not use a heating pad if you feel gaseous. Take one teaspoon of olive oil each evening of the pack.

After your Colon Hydrotherapy session
