If you're booked for a colon cleansing treatment, you may be interested to know what's going to happen. Some people feel embarrassed and are a little apprehensive about colon hydrotherapy treatments. You will be pleasantly surprised at how easy and painless this process is. It can even be described as relaxing. Therapists always strive to make the process as discreet and pleasant as possible. You will be covered at all times, and the most difficult part of the whole procedure is the insertion of the speculum through which the water will pass into your bowel. This will all be over in a second and after that you can relax and enjoy your treatment.

It's important when you go for your colon cleansing that you don't eat heavily that day. It's wise to eat lightly or stick to liquids for at least the day of your cleanse, and many colon hydrotherapists ask patients to do some kind of a liquid fast prior to a cleanse. Ask your therapist to make sure you're following the required protocol before your colon cleanse.

Effects of Colon Cleansing

Some people are amazed to see what comes out during a colon cleansing session. Some of us have several kilos of waste matter impacted on the walls of our colon. Removal of this toxic layer can have a dramatic impact on levels of health and energy, and can relieve all kinds of health problems. Apart from the effects of removing toxicity, another reason for greater feelings of health and well-being after colon cleansing sessions is that your body can then begin to benefit more fully from the nutrients in your food, which can be seriously blocked with a toxic colon condition.

Your therapist may suggest an implant along with your colon cleansing session. This is to replace some of the good bacteria that will have been flushed out of your colon along with the toxins. Acidophilus or bifidobacterium are two commonly used implants. Other substances may also be used, including olive oil, MSM, aloe vera and even aromatherapy oils. These will be to address a health problem of some sort, and your therapist will be able to advise you on what's most appropriate.
