Can you describe what happens during a colonic at Prime Vitality Wellness Center? Yes. When
you come in for a treatment, the therapist will spend a few minutes asking you some questions about your health & digestion.
You will change into different clothing which the therapist will provide. You lie on the treatment
table while the therapist assists you in gently inserting a small, sterile speculum into your anus, which allows you
to be connected to the colon hydrotherapy unit. The therapist then controls the unit to allow warm, filtered
water to flow gently in and out of your colon, carrying out waste material. It is normal to feel some new
or odd sensations during a session, but it is not commonly painful.
2. How many sessions
will I need?
That will be determined by your therapist or supervising physician based on your medical history, your primary
health concerns, and how you respond to your first session. Commonly 3 to 6 treatments are needed to see
long term results.
3. What should I do to prepare for my colonic?
can have a successful colonic without any special preparations beforehand, but it is best to avoid heavy food for a few hours
before your treatment. If you are hungry eat a piece of fruit or vegetable and some raw nuts to keep your
blood sugar up. It is also helpful to avoid refined foods (white flour, white sugar, table salt, processed
fats) for a few days before. A tablespoon of olive oil one or two nights before your treatment, and a glass
of warm water with the juice of half a fresh organic lemon the morning of your treatment can help make it more effective.
For a more extensive diet plan you can ask your therapist for the General Diet Preparation brochure.
Can I eat normally after my colonic? Your therapist or supervising physician
may make some dietary suggestions based on your response to your colonic. After your treatment, it is best
to avoid roughage for the rest of the day as this may cause gas cramps. Focus on slightly steamed vegetables, some lean protein
(white meat, not red) and if you like something raw - vegetable juice made from carrot, celery and greens is usually also
well tolerated. The next day you can resume a normal diet.
