What kind of diet should I follow immediately after a Colonic Hydrotherapy session?
Following a cleansing of the large intestinal, the body may feel weary or relaxed. This is simply your body working out and processing through its cleaning period; proper rest is important at this time to give your body time to rejuvenate.
 Immediately after receiving Colonic Hydrotherapy, it is important to:
Drink plenty of liquids (purified water, juices, herbal teas and electrolyte liquids).
Eat a healthy vegetable soup within the next couple of hours;
Avoid eating raw vegetables straight after the treatment. Steamed vegetables and raw fruit are sufficient. (To be chewed very thoroughly).
Reduce meat consumption (especially beef, pork as well as chicken), alcohol, caffeine and sugar intake.
Will laxatives accomplish the same result?
Laxatives empty the colon short term but are an irritant to the body. Therefore, the body produces a thin watery substance that goes through the colon and leaves behind impacted toxins and waste. Colonic hydrotherapy uses pure water and does not irritate the body. One of the tremendous benefits is that it actually hydrates the body.
How do toxins accumulate in the body?
Toxins accumulate in the body as a result of stress and/or consuming too much acidic food, such as sugar, white flour caffeine and alcohol.
 When the bowel becomes unnaturally acidic, it attempts to protect itself by secreting a glyco-protein substance that lines the entire intestinal wall. This is known as mucoid plaque. This substance is what makes it hard for the body to absorb vitamins and nutrients, which could result in chronic malnutrition.
 When the bowel becomes toxic, it contaminates the blood, which in turn, spreads the toxins to the heart, lungs, brain, muscles etc as it is delivering nutrients throughout the body. In the end, the liver is left to deal with toxic blood, and after years of relentless toxicity, it will become sluggish until it will no longer function. At this point, the toxins will begin to collect in other parts of the body. Disease will manifest wherever they settle. Overall, cleansing allows you to remove accumulated mucoid plaque in order to rebuild your bowel and your liver and protect yourself from disease.
Can you describe what a healthy well-function bowel is?
When one feels the urge to eliminate and immediately honours the urge by a trip to the toilet, elimination is quick and painless and will feel complete. Stools are medium to light brown have very little odour and will break up in water.
Is it possible to have a colonic hydrotherapy treatment whilst having a period?
Colonic Hydrotherapy is perfectly safe during this time, and will help decrease the cramps and the bloating accompanying the menstruation. The body is naturally detoxing. We just ask you to wear an angle cup or tampon during treatment.
What are the signs or symptoms when we first being to omit toxic substances and begin to clean out the colon?
When a regular diet of stimulants such as coffee, tea, alcohol, sugar and others are eliminated from your diet, some clients comment about having headaches, flu-like symptoms and even mild depression. At this stage of a detox, cleansing through Colonic Hydrotherapy helps to flush toxins out of the system, hence Colonic Hydrotherapy is recommended with back to back sessions for the first two weeks.
Why do the symptoms happen?
This is due to the body discarding toxins which are removed from the tissues and then transported by the blood to the liver and then the colon for elimination.
 All symptoms generally pass by the third or fourth session of Colonic Hydrotherapy. Clients often comment on their increased energy levels after the second session.
How will I feel after my colonic?
You will leave your treatment session feeling relaxed, regenerated and rebalanced.
How will I know when the colon is empty?
The colon will probably never be empty, as it’s an organ in continuous use. As more of the impacted material is released clients comment on feeling the water enter higher regions of the colon without any sense of obstruction. The objective should not be an empty colon, but rather a well functioning colon.
Should I see a Doctor before seeing colon hydrotherapy Brisbane?
If you have a specific medical condition then we would suggest it, but a medical examination is not normally required as it’s safer than a home administered enema.
Are colonics embarrassing?
Your dignity and privacy is completely maintained at all times in the comfort of our calming and soothing private treatment rooms. During your bowel movement there is no odour or sounds as it goes directly to the sewage via a viewing tube.
Is Colon Hydrotherapy habit forming?
No, colonic hydrotherapy is not habit forming. On the contrary, one of the features of colonic hydrotherapy is the toning of the colon muscles, which helps in maintaining and resuming regular bowel movements.
