Before Colonic: How to Prepare for Colon Hydrotherapy

If you have decided to cleanse your body of toxins by undergoing colon hydrotherapy, you have chosen one of the safest, most effective treatments available today. Understanding how to prepare for colon hydrotherapy is essential in terms of getting the best outcome. This means that before colonic treatment begins, you will need to do the following.

Start Three Days Early

One of the most common detriments to effective colon hydrotherapy is not starting your new eating and health program early enough. In other words, you need to start eating healthy foods and drinking plenty of water at least three days before the treatment is scheduled.

This includes drinking vegetable juice which should start even early, say a week before the hydrotherapy treatment. Adding more water to your diet will also help flush out the toxins. This will increase the effectiveness of the treatment process.

By starting early, your body will be more receptive to the colonic hydrotherapy treatment. This means that you can start the detoxification process that allows for greater weight loss.

Avoid Certain Drinks and Foods

As you should increase the number of healthy foods and drinks to your diet. So too should you cut back or eliminate foods and drinks that have a detrimental effect on your health and wellbeing. Some of the foods you should avoid include the following:

  • Cheese
  • Fast Food
  • Milk
  • Red Meats
  • Refined Sugars
  • Soy Products
  • White Flour

You should emphasize non-processed foods in your diet as much as possible. Try to consume the proper amount of fresh produce and lean meats, such as chicken. In addition, you should look for foods or supplements if the foods are not available that offer omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids.

In addition, you should avoid drinking the following products:

  • Alcohol
  • Seltzer
  • Soda
  • Sparkling Water

Stick to water as much as possible during this time.

For better guidance, try fresh veggie juice in the morning along with gluten-free bread, avocados, and plain, steel-cut oats. Keep the meal simple for lunch by consuming a leafy, green salad, cooked vegetables, and adding olive oil with a squeeze of lemon. For dinner, a raw salad, some fish or chicken, and cooked vegetables are fine. You can start this menu the day before your colonic treatment and continue as recommended.

Treatment Day

On the day of the treatment, you should not eat at least two hours before it begins. Plus, you should start the day with some warm water, lemon, or veggie juice if the colonic hydrotherapy is scheduled for the morning.

If the treatment is in the afternoon, then you can eat a salad or drink juice to keep your energy levels up. Just remember to not consume anything at least two hours before the treatment begins.
