Suggested Guidelines Post Colonic

Take Probiotic Supplements This is a perfect time to support and replenish your body with healthy friendly bacteria (“flora”). A colonic will wash away both toxic and healthy bacteria that reside in the gut. In most people, the delicate balance of intestinal flora is very unbalanced with the scale tipping on the side of unhealthy, highly toxic bacteria strains. The body will begin developing its bacterial ecosystem immediately after a session so it is wise to be proactive and take probiotics and prebiotics.
Drink Lemon Water Squeeze ½ – 1 whole lemon in 8 oz. water. Drink as much lemon water as you like in the days following a colonic. Lemon water alkalizes the body, assists detoxification, and actually boosts metabolism.
Epsom Salt Baths Add 1-2 cups Epsom salts to your hot bath water. Soak at least 20 minutes. This can be a very detoxifying experience. Make sure you take your bath in the evening so you can relax immediately after. This bath is best done about 1 hour before bedtime. (If you’ve never tried this, here’s an interesting experience. Don’t drain your bathwater. Leave it in the tub for about ½ hr with the door shut. When you go into your bathroom after about ½ hour, you can actually smell the toxins that have been pulled from your body into the saltwater.)
Castor Oil Packs Buy any cold-pressed castor oil and take a piece of flannel. Soak the flannel with a generous amount of castor oil and place over the abdomen. Place a piece of plastic wrap and then a hot water bottle or heating pad over top. This can be done every other day for a week, for 35-45 minutes at a time. It is used to stimulate the liver, improve digestion, increase lymphatic circulation and reduce inflammation. It also helps break up fecal material in the large intestines and promotes peristalsis. Try it. It is truly amazing!!
Take time to rest, relax, meditate, massage your abdomen and breathe. Consider a walk in nature, swimming in natural water, reading books on healthy living, starting a food journal…and begin contemplating whether a detoxifying internal cleansing program may be in your future.
What are good foods to eat post colonic?
Drink plenty of liquids (purified water, juices, herb teas and electrolyte liquids).
Eat a healthy vegetable soup within the next few hours of your session.
Avoid eating raw vegetables straight after the treatment. Instead, eat steamed vegetables and raw fruit. Remember to chew your food thoroughly.
Reduce consumption of meat, (chicken, pork and especially beef), alcohol, caffeine and sugar intake.
