It is a common belief that health originates in the colon. This means that if you have a healthy digestive environment, it will result in an improvement in overall health.
Colon Hydrotherapy, also referred to as a ‘colonic,’ uses gentle, filtered, temperature-controlled water for inner cleansing of the colon, essentially comparing it to that of ‘cleaning the pipes.’ Over the years, with poor digestion and sluggish bowels, the digestive system may not effectively eliminate waste, which can result in an accumulation of fecal matter including bad bacteria, yeast, parasites and mold. If that unhealthy matter is stored for too long it leads to a harmful digestive environment, which may result in symptoms such as bloating, gas, headaches or skin conditions. The colonic procedure allows for repair and results in a healthy digestive environment, which encourages the growth of healthy bacteria and the flow of waste to be eliminated effectively. Every day our digestive systems are overworked and saturated due to overeating, medications, fast foods, processed and genetically modified foods, toxins, alcohol consumption and stress.

PREPARATION FOR COLON HYDROTHERAPY - for best results
Eat a very clean diet, preferably vegan, for at least 24 hours prior to your colonic session. This means no alcohol, sugar, coffee, junk food, etc. Try to avoid heavy meats, and flour products like breads and pasta.
On the day of your colonic, eat a light meal at least 2 hours prior to your appointment.
Do not eat during the 2 hours before your colonic.
Do not drink water during the 2 hours before your colonic (this is so that you do not have a full bladder during your session).
