Upon arriving to your first Colon Hydrotherapy session, the Colon Hydrotherapist will ask you to complete a client health questionnaire. Arrive ten minutes early so that sufficient time is allowed to complete the questionnaire. A Certified Colon Hydrotherapist will escort you to a private Colon Hydrotherapy room. Expect the first session to last approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Every session thereafter, will be scheduled for a one-hour time slot; water intake is approx. 45 minutes, so please be on time.
The Certified Colon Hydrotherapy will then explain how to position yourself onto the colonic table, and answer any questions before the session. The therapist will then leave the room, so that you may privately undress from the waist down. At that point, position yourself on the form-fitted table and gently insert the lubricated, sterile, disposable, LIBBE rectal tube yourself (about an inch and a half only). Cover yourself with the provided large, hospital grade blanket.
When ready, the therapist will re-enter the room to get you started and instruct, monitor and be available to assist as needed during the session.
As the session begins, purified (ultra violet light and charcoal filter), temperature-controlled water drips slowly through the rectal tube and into your colon. When feeling the need to release the water, let it flow out and down the drain into the base of the LIBBE, passing through a four-inch clear viewing tube which is connected to the sewer system. The sensation of releasing the water will occur many times throughout the session. An odor exhaust system, built into the device, insures that the private room remains odorless. With permission, we include light abdominal massage, which is included with the service.
At the end of the session, there is no need for cleanup by the client. After each session, the unit is cleaned and disinfected, to insure your safety. All of the equipment used during the Colon Hydrotherapy session is FDA approved.
It is important to prepare the body before experiencing a Colon Hydrotherapy Session:
DO NOT EAT/CHEW ANYTHING 2 HOURS PRIOR TO YOUR HYDROTHERAPY SESSION.
*Eliminate Mexican, Indian, Thai cuisine, broccoli, lettuce, rice, cauliflower, cabbage, beans, or any food that can create gas for you, two days prior to your session. Gas may cause discomfort during the session. No chewing gum the day before and prior to session.
*It is important that the body be well hydrated for the session. All healthy liquids, juice, and smoothies are allowed, however, we recommend water. If you have electrolytes, it’s a good idea to have them in water right before your session, if you don’t have them, we do so please ask and we will supply them for you. Anything with caffeine is not recommended, since it dehydrates the body. Drink WATER! The general rule is; drink half of your body weight in ounces of water (e.g., weigh 200 lbs., drink 100 ounces of water) on a daily basis. Best is first thing to touch your lips in the morning is water. 32oz suggested with a little fresh lemon juice. You can sip your water quickly but gulping it down is not recommended. Water absorbs in clusters into the body and rushing water into the system will only make you urinate it out quickly. Drinking it in separate sips will help it to absorb better into your system.
*For morning appointment, skip breakfast. If you feel hungry drink water, juice, or a healthy smoothie.
*If your appointment is in the afternoon, drink water, juice, or a healthy smoothie for the morning and lunch.
*For an evening appointment, eat a light breakfast and water, juices, or a healthy smoothie for lunch and dinner.
If really motivated, drink water, juices, or a healthy smoothie the day before, and the day of your session.
If you are taking any prescription medications, please follow your doctors instructions.
WHAT IS A COLONIC/COLON HYDROTHERAPY
A colonic is a very gentle, and very effective method of cleaning out the colon using highly purified water. The colon, large intestine, or bowel is the last 5 to 6 feet of the digestive system.
IS A COLONIC UNCOMFORTABLE?
Colon Hydrotherapy is a relaxing process of taking and releasing water according to your body’s natural rhythms. You might experience gas or cramping during your colonic. We support you during any gas symptoms and offer massage to help alleviate any discomfort.
ISN’T A COLONIC EMBARRASSING?
YOU insert the rectal tube while we give you privacy. The tube is about the diameter of a pencil and is only inserted 1-1/2 to 2 inches. When you have inserted the tube and are completely covered, we come back into the room and begin your colonic. Usually after one session, it’s not a big deal. Remember you are completely covered and we chose this as a profession because we are dedicated to helping others.
DOESN’T AN ENEMA DO THE SAME THING?
An enema allows you to clean the sigmoid colon and can reach higher but is not alway possible. The sigmoid is approximately the last 10-12 inches of the large intestine. You could miss about 4-5 feet of the colon.
WHAT IF I’M ON MY CYCLE?
Colon Hydrotherapy may release abdominal pressure that might build up while menstruating. The colon actually wraps around the uterus and Colon Hydrotherapy may help relieve bloating, cramps and other menstrual discomfort. We ask that you remove your feminine product right before your session begins.
WILL COLON HYDROTHERAPY DISRUPT THE NATURAL BALANCE OF INTESTINAL FLORA IN MY COLON?
Even in a very healthy colon, there is a natural balance of beneficial and pathological bacteria that is essential to digestion and ideal function. Colon Hydrotherapy will help to reduce pathological bacteria and will leave an ideal environment for beneficial bacteria to thrive in. It may be a good idea to take acidophilus and/or bifidus orally after your treatment.
DOES COLON HYDROTHERAPY CREATE DEPENDENCE? IS IT HABIT FORMING?
One of the most important benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy is that it exercises the colon (a tubular muscle), which may help improve normal function. Also, Colon Hydrotherapy is a completely natural removal process using water only (no chemicals) and there are no suctions or vacuums involved in the release process. We use an OPEN SYSTEM. The water is gravity fed so it gently flows into the bowel.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE RECOMMENDED?
The number of sessions varies according to the condition of the colon and a person’s general health and health goals. Each person’s body is different. The Colon Hydrotherapist will suggest session options and maintenance options.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
Unfortunately, we do not take insurance. If your insurance company covers colonics, or you have a Flexible Spending Account, we will be happy to provide you with a detailed receipt.
IS IT LIKE A COLONOSCOPY?
No. Colon Hydrotherapy gently cleanses the colon. During a Colonoscopy, your doctor will use a scope to look deeply in your colon. Colon Hydrotherapists don’t diagnose disease or perscribe. We are not medical doctors, thus, we do not diagnose or perscribe.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
For your first session, you will be in the office for approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. In this time, you will have a consultation, education, instruction on use, and the Colonic session. You’re normally on the devise for 45 minutes. Every session thereafter, you will be in and out in 1 hour.
WILL I LOSE WEIGHT?
While there can be temporary weight loss benefit to colonics, they aren’t an effective long-term weight loss strategy. Colonics can help with weight loss, when used together with diet and exercise. We are more concerned about you creating a healthy environment for your body through healthy choices.
HOW WILL I FEEL AFTER MY COLONIC?
Some people have increased energy, feel lighter, and have a flatter tummy. And some people feel tired. It depends on your digestion and your health. Either way, you may sleep well that night. And when the body is tired it’s probably telling you to lay down so it can do its healing process.
WILL I HAVE TO BE IN THE BATHROOM ALL DAY?
Not likely. You should be fine to go about your normal routine for the rest of the day.
ARE “ELECTROLYTE MINERALS” WASHED OUT?
As with regular bowel movements, there is some mineral elimination. These minerals are easily replaced at the next meal. The kidneys and liver are the organs in charge of balancing minerals. They become “tired” by intestinal intoxication. Consider that cleansing might facilitate and improve their ability to manage and utilize minerals. We always offer electrolytes in water before and after your session.
1-1/2 to 2 hours; Includes consultation, instruction, education and a 45 minute colon hydrotherapy session.
1 hour time slot; session is approximatly 45 minutes
