attitude.Drink lots of water - the best guideline is your half your body weight in ounces. if you weigh 120 lbs you should drink 60 oz. Double your dosage of probiotics night before and the morning of your colonic and for the next 48 hours following your colonic.
10. Will I experience any intestinal discomfort or fatigue after the cleansing?
Usually not, but since the cleansing will stir up a lot of old debris and toxins, you might experience some minor nausea or fatigue. If any discomfort occurs, it is recommended to rest and apply a warm heating pad to the abdomen. If you wish, a mild vegetable broth or peppermint tea is usually soothing at this time. Any discomfort will usually pass within 24 hours.
11. Do I need to take probiotics after a colon cleansing because intestinal flora has been washed out of the colon?
It is recommended to use probiotics, but not because the treatment washes out intestinal flora. Colon hydrotherapy cleansings do not wash out intestinal flora. Taking probiotics subsequent to a colon cleansing is beneficial, because it helps to improve the bacterial balance in the colon. The best method is to implant the flora rectally the evening after your final therapy session, or if you prefer, to take probiotics for 2 weeks after the final therapy session.
