The days before the appointment eat as many water content foods as possible such as raw and cooked green leafy vegetables and raw vegetable drinks. This will start hydrating the colon to ease your experience.
Try to cut down on all processed foods like white flour products, cheese, dried foods, greasy foods and sugar. These foods have a tendency to dehydrate the colon and can make the experience more challenging.
Avoid eating 2 hours before the colon hydrotherapy appointment.
Avoid all diuretic foods one day prior to your appointment, including coffee, tea or soda.
After a Session:
It is best to eat light foods that are easy on the digestive system: steamed vegetables, soup and light protein (fish-cold water, wild-caught).
Avoid eating nuts, salads and icy foods and drinks.
Fortify with intestinal microflora (friendly bacteria). This may be done with probiotic beverages, cultured vegetables or a probiotic supplement.
Drink more water to continue hydrating.
Add 1 tbsp. of chlorophyll or ¼ tsp. pink salt to your water in order to help absorption.
Add 2 tbsp. of lemon or 1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar in your water which can help alkalinize your body.
Days following the session should be filled with vegetables (raw and steamed), soup, fruits, whole grains and pure water (not tap). Salads and raw foods have great enzymes and fiber.
For better health, avoid anything processed, bottled or canned. Also avoid sugar, pasteurized dairy and all whites/starches (sugar, flour, rice, etc.).
Avoid alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours.
Avoid strenuous exercise immediately following the colonic. Rest. Allow the body to heal.
Add a “pooping stool” to your bathroom. Being in the proper squatting position during elimination will reduce stress and straining on the pelvic floor and help with complete eliminations.
