5 Musts Before a Colonic: Preparing for your Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment
Taking the colonic leap? Awesome! Here’s some simple ‘to do’s’ before a colonic. Did you know that preparing for a colonic doesn’t require a juice fast? Although incorporating fresh pressed juices (not the bottled/pasteurized stuff) the days before is highly recommended, simply increasing the amount of wholesome foods will help you to prepare sufficiently for a colonic. At DTX Cellular Evolution, once you book your appointment, we offer simple preparation guidelines that help support you before a colonic to insure you have the best results.
Preparing For A Colonic: 3 Or More Days Leading Up To A Colonic
It’s not just about what you do the day of a colonic that yields positive results during and after your treatment. Ideally, preparing for a colonic should begin at least 2-3 days prior – like rehearsing for an audition. These easy-to-follow tips will help you create the best possible outcome for your session.
1. Drink Water
You can add lemon, lime, mint leaves, etc. Just hydrate. : )
2. Drink Fresh Veggie Juice
Morning is best! Allow about 30-40 minutes between juice and the next meal.
3. Increase Your Salads and Vegetables
These are anti-inflammatory foods that will act like a broom helping your body loosen matter.
4. Food Combining
This is a smart way to eat before or after a colonic and as a regular practice. The basics are: 1) eat fruit alone and on an empty stomach and 2) Don’t eat protein and starches at the same meal. Though protein and veggies OR starches and veggies are A-OK! Download our free food combining “smart chart” and post it on your fridge as a reminder!
5. Protein Smarts
If you are going to eat protein, they are best eaten with salads and vegetables, no starch please! And choose the lighter versions like fish, chicken or turkey and eat them at dinner vs. lunch.
Before a Colonic: The Day Of Your Treatment
The smartest way to begin preparing for a colonic is to drink fresh veggie juice and water, and eat either fruit and/or salad (but not at the same time) the day of the session. Keep it light! Depending on the time of your appointment, you’ll want to allow yourself at least 2 hours free of eating or juicing prior to your session. Keep in mind that it’s not optimal to eat heavy meals or processed foods before a colonic. Keep it simple!
