AFTER THE COLONIC:
A colonic can sometimes trigger several bowel movements a few hours later or may also stop bowel movements for a few days if the colon lacks proper tone. Either reaction is normal. If there is cramping, it is usually a result of gas, or tension in the colon. However, most clients actually enjoy the colonic irrigation and its accompanying benefits of feeling lighter, clean, clear headed and more energetic after the process is done.
Eating immediately after a colonic is not recommended but when necessary eat lightly, eat slowly and chew well. Taking a digestive enzyme (1-2 capsules with each meal) will greatly help digestion and ease gas that sometimes occurs with high fiber intake. The more food you consume during one meal, the more enzymes you want to take. Also, gas may also be caused by imbalanced pH and a high population of bad bacteria.
Replenishing the healthy intestinal flora with a probiotic supplement after each colonic will help to restore the proper pH. Eat yogurt or take two probiotic capsules before bed on an empty stomach or ½ hour after meals. Continue taking it throughout the colonic series or until the bottle is finished.
Eat & drink raw fruit and vegetables to help detoxify.
Psyllium husk or powder will help to soften debris in the colon and assist in the session if taken twice daily for two to three days before a colonic. Take 1-2 tablespoon(s) of psyllium husk or powder with 16 oz of water or apple juice, shake and drink immediately. Follow with 8 oz water, if possible.
Follow-ups: A weekly series of 3 are good; a series of 5 are better; a series of 7 are best; a series of 12 are ultimate to cleanse your colon and improve your health. After your series; do 1 colonic monthly, quarterly or a yearly series to maintain your health. Don’t forget to purchase your products and schedule your next session. (Purchase your enzymes, probiotics or yogurt & psyllium husk).
The more fresh and raw food that you eat a day or two before your colonic, the better your results will be.
