Post Treatment Tips For After A Colonic Session:

  • Drink Plenty of Liquids:
    • Pure water(drink half of your body weight in ounces of water each day).
    • Juices
    • Herbal Teas
    • Electrolytes - Ionic Trace Minerals.
  • Replace Intestinal Flora: (the "good bacteria")
    • Acidophilus supplementation: this can be purchased at any health food store.  Cultured foods are also good sources of healthy bacteria (kefir or cultured vegetables).  These foods can generally be purchased at your local health food stores.  However, if you cannot locate them you can easily make your own.  To learn how, read the book by author and lecturer Donna Gates entitled "The Body Ecology Diet"
  • Vegetable soup is best.
    • Pureed (blended) soups are also recommended. 
  • Avoid eating raw vegetables for a couple of days following a colonic session. 
    • Raw vegetables can initially create more gas after a colonic session.  Cooked veggies and raw fruits are sufficient.
    • Chew well. 
  • Reduce heavy meat consumption for several days. 
  • Dieting After Colon Hydrotherapy:
    • To sustain the greatest long term benefits from colon hydrotherapy, each meal should include these five things to be a complete meal for proper digestion. Proper digestion means proper assimilation of foods for conversion into energy.
      • Protein
      • Carbohydrates
      • Oils (Lipids)
      • Liquids - Juices, Purified Water
      • Vitamins/Minerals
      • Naturally, you will also want to avoid foods that you know have a history of creating bowel disturbances and poor digestion for your body.
  • Tips For A Healthy Colon & Digestive System:
    • Eat Plenty of Fiber: aim for 25-35 grams daily
    • Apples, fruit
    • Vegetables, a variety is always best
    • Whole grains and legumes (beans)
    • Prunes or Prune Juice
    • Fiber Supplements (make sure that your supplement has the right amount of soluble and non soluble fiber.  If you take a fiber supplement you must make sure you are getting at least 8 glasses of water daily (a minimum of 64 ozs.).  Otherwise fiber supplements can be a cause of constipation and bloating.
       
  • Add an Essential Fatty Acid to your diet: These are the good fats like Flax-seed oil.  Omega 3, 6 and 9 are important essential fatty acids.  Sources of these are non-hydrogenated vegetable oils, olive oil, fish oils, and coconut oil.  Essential fatty acids are important for healthy cell production, colon, heart, skin, nervous system, hormones, joints and brain.  These healthy fats protect cell walls against free radical damage.  They are also beneficial in helping to soothe and lubricate the colon wall.
  • Take Probiotic Supplements (Friendly bacteria which live in the gastrointestinal tract):
    • They assist in keeping the digestive tract clean.
      Keep down the growth of yeast in the colon.  
    • They are also important for the production of vitamin K and some of the B vitamins.
  • Start taking a good digestive enzyme.  Especially if you are experiencing digestive stress regularly (bloating following meals, gas, acid reflux, tired but always hungry, and a feeling of getting full right away).  Avoid eating late at night and read up on "Food Combining Principles."
  • Don't eat simple carbohydrates:
    • These are usually highly processed and low nutrition, low fiber foods.
    • Examples include white flour products, rice, pasta, bread, sugar, etc.
       
  • Drink Aloe Vera Juice:
    • A regular, daily dose of Aloe Vera Juice will help to keep the digestive tract clean and free of debris.  It also helps to heal irritations and soothes the colon lining.
       
  • Exercise daily, and get adequate rest.
