"Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature-regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a session."

How many treatments do I need?
We are all different. There is no standard number of treatments, which we recommend. We do not offer packages of so many treatments. What we offer is a first procedure at a special rate. We suggest you do a single treatment and talk with your provider about it. Our opinion based on experience that most patient would achieve an optimal result with 3 treatments over 2 week period with regular maintenance visits once in 3 month thereafter. Some patients do this procedure just 1-2 times per year and some do as many as 12 per year. Your diet and life style are two main factors.
How do I prepare for the colonic?
Be well hydrated. Don’t eat for two hours prior to treatment. Do not be hungry. Do not eat raw vegetables and heavy food the day of the treatment. Avoid carbonated drinks. Do not drink alcohol 24 hours.
What should I expect afterwards?
After colonic patients reported: Filling of lightness, Being energized and having increased energy, Improved circulation, Clearer skin & eyes, Mental clarity, Better digestions, Relief from bloating, gassiness and heaviness. By removing the waste material from the colon, weight normalizing is promoted. Some men reported improved libido and sexual performance. Improved skin conditions, Allergies relive.
As we stated majorities of patients have no negative fillings or side effects after a colonics.
A diet, health program, other planed activities should become more effective after colonics. Hydrate your self regularly. For a few days don’t eat raw vegetables and heavy meats. Steamed vegetables, poultry, fish, brown rice, whole grain pasta, fruit and soups are good choices. Soup is the best after colonics.
Don’t overeat. Food should be cooked simply. Please chew well. Leafy vegetables and fruit would help in regulating bowels. Ice creams, sweats, refined sugars and refined and whit grains not a good choice. They will contribute to mucus forming.
Do not drink alcohol for about 24 hours after colonic.
Rigorous exercise and weight lifting to be avoided 24 hours after treatment (Prebiotic and probiotic supplements are important for growing friendly bacteria).
