Tips for before and after your Colon Hydrotherapy session
Before your Colon Hydrotherapy session
Do not eat for 2 hours before your appointment.
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
Drink plenty of water to keep the toxins flushing from your body.
Avoid gas-forming foods for 2 days.
Eat yogurt with acidophilus/bifidus cultures or take acidophilus capsules or liquid for several days to maintain the balance of flora in the colon.
Eat more laxative food such as salads, vegetables, fruit (no bananas), juices, soups, fish, chicken. Beet and carrot juices are very beneficial. Avoid eating raw vegetables 4-6 hours after a colonic.
Avoid heavy meat consumption (beef and pork) for 8 to 12 hours. Chicken and fish is best.
