Colonics and Hydrotherapy with
Trust in the Process . Digestive Centre
Colonic Therapy Supported by Nutritional Consultations, Reflexology and Visceral Manipulation. Implants available are probiotic, coffee and wheatgrass.
How should I prepare for the colonic?
We recommend that you refrain from eating at least two hours prior to your appointment and ensure that you are well hydrated. If possible, a diet of vegetables and grains 2-3 days in advance rather than heavy foods will help prepare your colon for the treatment. Do not drink alcohol 24 hours in advance. For copies of the Digestive rest cleanse mentioned above contact Suzanne.
What happens during a colonic?
The procedure starts with the client lying on a comfortable therapy table. The therapist gently inserts a small disposable speculum into the rectum. (We only use completely sterile, disposable tools during the procedure.) The therapy begins with a gentle flow of filtered water using light pressure to allow the colon to be cleaned. The fecal matter and toxins are released into the tubing leading to the septic. The therapist monitors the water pressure to ensure a relaxing and healing treatment experience. There is no odor due to this tubing. A gentle colon massage will help with the colon release.
After some time the colon therapist will advise you to go into a private bathroom to release.
Will one colonic completely empty the colon?
Typically, one colonic will not completely empty the colon. Many of us have a considerable amount of impacted feces in our colon. These are hardened, rubbery or wallpaper like material. Substantial work must be done to remove it. Moreover, there is a learning process that occurs when having a colonic. As you become more aware of what is going on in your abdomen, and as your body learns how to allow the cleansing experience, you are better able to enter into that process, and therefore more material is released. One colonic will move some of the stagnant waste in the colon. The second and subsequent colonics will remove more. How many you wish to have will depend on your personal objectives and health state.
How will I feel afterwards?
Colonics have a “relieving” effect. There may well be a feeling of lightness and internal cleanliness. People are often energized following a colonic. Many clients have reported clearer skin. Once the colon has been thoroughly cleansed then diet, exercise and other health programs will become many times more effective. Make sure you drink plenty of liquids, avoid raw vegetables and reduce consumption of meats for a couple of days. Steamed vegetables, fruit and soups are recommended.
Will I have regular bowel movements after a colonic?
The most common post-colonic experience is to have a light delay in bowel movements and then the resumption of a somewhat larger, easier to move stool. Sometimes if the colon is weak and sluggish, there may be no bowel movement for several days following a colonic. However, this is not due to the colonic, but because of the weakness of the colon. Rarely is diarrhea or loose bowels experienced. This may be due to the extra water introduced into the colon. If it should occur, it is usually of very short duration.
