After the Colonic
Since the colon has been cleared of solid matter, it may take up to four days before it fills up again and normal bowel movements are resumed. Some water is absorbed through the colon wall during a colonic, and one may notice an increased need to urinate for a few hours afterwards. This beneficial effect of flushing the kidneys may also be enhanced by drinking a few glasses of water with the juice of half a lemon added to each glass.
A colonic has a profound cleansing effect on the body and many people feel so good afterwards that they want to double their jogging or workout time. Caution is advised here, for it can be overdone. Although light to moderate exercise is good if you are used to it, any strenuous activity should be avoided 24 hours after the treatment.
If a condition, such as habitual constipation or irritable bowel, has existed for a while, extreme tiredness may be experienced for a couple of days after the first colonic.
A light diet of fruits, steamed vegetables, salads, soups and chicken or fish should be followed for two to three days, taking care to avoid anything that causes gas.
Avoid ALL spicy, processed or junk food, all breads, pastas and other grains, all dairy, all red meat in addition to all carbonated drinks, alcohol and coffee for three days after your treatment.
