CAN I EAT AFTER HAVING A COLONIC?
YES! I suggest that you eat at your normal meal time, and consume a moderate amount of whatever seems gentle and nourishing to you. Rice, salads, cooked vegetables, vegetable soups or broths, fruit and juices and any other ‘gentle’ foods are probably your best choice.
Just as it doesn't make sense to have your car cleaned and then immediately drive it through mud, eating a meal known to cause trouble in your abdomen directly after a colonic wouldn’t be an intelligent choice!
CAN I RETURN TO WORK AFTER I HAVE HAD A COLONIC?
In general, you should be able to continue with your normal daily activities - you should feel great!
We attempt to drain any surplus water from your colon so that you don’t experience any discomfort. Holistic Hydro has a toilet inside the Colon Hydrotherapy room – you’re welcome to sit there for a short while after your treatment to ensure that any residual water is expelled. Some water is absorbed through the colon wall during Colon Hydrotherapy, and you may notice an increased need to urinate for a few hours afterwards, but this soon settles.
WILL I HAVE DIARRHOEA OR MAJOR DISCOMFORT?
Some people have a bowel movement in the hours following their treatment, but there shouldn’t be any uncontrollable urgency, diarrhea or major discomfort.
On occasion, a slight headache or fatigue may be experienced after your first few treatments. This can happen with any holistic-type treatment and is your body’s way of eliminating toxins.
