Will one colonic clean out all of the waste material in my colon? How often should I receive colonics?
Having one colonic is the first step towards renewed vitality, however, some of the waste can be so hard and deeply lodged in the colon that it usually takes a series of colonics to sufficiently soften and loosen it. If you have never had a colonic, or it has been a long time since you last had one, most clients experience the best results by doing a series of colonics. The number and frequency of colonic sessions will vary with each individual and will depend on your goals, dietary habits, intestinal health, and lifestyle choices. After the initial series, many people choose to schedule colonics as part of an ongoing maintenance program to keep the colon flushed and the body free from an overabundance of toxins. Your certified colon hydrotherapist will go over your goals with you to help you determine what is best for you.
Are colonics habit-forming? Will I become dependent on colonics?
No, your body will not become dependent on colonics to eliminate. The colonic is a tool intended to create a clean and well functioning colon. One of its features is that a colonic exercises and tones the colon muscle which encourages better colon function and elimination. The gentle filling of water repeatedly not only flushes waste out of the colon but also stimulates the colon to contract, strengthening the muscles of the colon.
Can I have a colonic while I am pregnant?
No, at Radiance Cleansing Center we will not administer a colonic to someone during pregnancy.
Can I have a colon hydrotherapy session during my menstrual cycle?
Yes, in fact it can be a good time to receive a session since your body is already cleansing. Your menstrual flow will not interfere with the colonic. Many clients report reduced menstrual cramping and bloating often associated with menstrual cycles.
Will colonics clear up my skin?
Your skin is an important organ of elimination. Sometimes, if the colon, liver, or kidneys are functioning poorly, the skin will be required to make up the difference. Surface eruptions on the skin may occur due to toxins being released. Cleansing the colon can diminish the burden placed upon the skin as well as the other organs of elimination: Lungs, liver, kidneys. After receiving colon hydrotherapy people often report that their skin cleared up.
Will I experience any intestinal discomfort during the colonic?
Most clients actually enjoy colonics and find them to be very relaxing and comfortable. At times, you may experience a mild cramping sensation similar to what you might feel when having diarrhea. If so, this is usually brief and easily tolerated because the waste will soon be expelled through the outflow tube. More than often, people happily comment that it was much better than what they expected.
How will I feel after receiving colon hydrotherapy?
Most people feel great! Many people report feeling energetic, lighter, refreshed, and enjoy a greater sense of wellbeing. Cleansing can stir up old debris and toxins so although it is rare, it is possible that you might feel tired, experience a headache, or other minor detox reactions. If so, try to rest. This usually passes within 24 hours.
After a colonic, will I need to be close to a toilet all day?
No, usually clients release everything while they are in our office as there is time to finish on the toilet before you leave. Of course, there can be exceptions to this, but most clients continue on with their scheduled day without urgency to eliminate.
Can I go to work directly after a colonic?
Yes, you can work as you would just after a regular bowel movement. Many clients receive a colonic on their lunch break and head right back to work afterwards.
