colonic preparation

While there may not be any medical studies proving the benefits of colonics, my personal experience in the field for over 20 years has shown me that most people's lives improve dramatically from getting them done.  I have witnessed clients get significant relief with chronic issues like stubborn weight, IBS symptoms, skin rashes, low energy levels, mood swings, etc.


Colonics may alleviate symptoms when medically indicated for issues such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), food sensitivities, skin rashes, constipation, mood swings, bloating, and gas by relieving intestinal autointoxication.

Some individuals use colon hydrotherapy as a part of their weight loss regimen. In my experience, I have seen individuals who are committed to their health lose weight by doing a series of colonics spaced either 1 week or 2 weeks apart.

Please always work with your trusted medical professional along with getting colonics or any of my services.



Colon Hydrotherapy Prep Instructions 


The following are suggestions on how to prepare for a colonic. It's OK if you don't follow them, however, if you do follow them you will have better results. 


The most important thing to do is to follow the guidelines as best you can and be kind to yourself if you struggle with these guidelines. 

  • Drink at least 1/2 your weight in ounces of pure clean water within those 2 days and hydrate with water the day of your session.  For pure water, you may want to purchase a Berkey water system, which isn't necessary for the colonic prep.


  • A 1-2 hour fast (no food or water or very light, if you must) before the session, is recommended for the best results. 


  • It's best to be relaxed before and during your session. Take some deep breaths.  I often recommend doing this breathwork by Dr. Andrew Weil or Vagus Nerve Exercises by Sukie Baxter.


  • If more severe constipation is relevant, you may choose to take a natural supplement the evening before or the morning of your session. A cup of warm prune juice may also work well. I recommend avoiding harsh stimulants like laxatives with Cascara Sagrada. Please don't use anything but Prune Juice if you are prone to blood in your stools and make sure your doctor is ok with you having a colonic. I have other suggestions so please feel free to reach out if you need to @


  • Cleansemore by RenewLife is a natural digestive supplement that may work well before the session. Cleansemore by Renew Life can be purchased online or at most natural health food stores like Whole Foods, Better Health, etc. Again don't use this product if you are prone to blood in your stools and make sure your doctor is okay with you having a colonic. Please read the label carefully and follow what is directed on the bottle.


Note:  The colonic session will remove the waste from the bowels, so don't worry if the above suggestions are not used.


After the Colonic Session


These are general suggestions unless you have been instructed otherwise by your medical doctor. You also know your body best.

  • Drink Plenty of Liquids: Pure Water is Recommended (drink half of your body weight in ounces of water each day). For pure water, you may want to purchase a Berkey water system, which isn't necessary for the colonic aftercare.


  • Drink Veggie and Fruit Smoothies


  • Herbal Teas (peppermint or ginger are soothing - as long as you are not anemic)


  • Electrolyte Liquids (these can be purchased at most health food stores)

  • Typically 7 - 10 bowel movements are cleared out during a session so please be aware that it might take you 2-3 days to have a normal bowel movement after your session.


Note:  One session cleanses your body and may get the colon started. If this is your first colonic cleanse, or if it has been a while since you have had a cleanse additional sessions may be necessary.  We can talk about it at your next visit. Sessions may be done every week for a few weeks or every other week for a deeper general cleanse of your bowels.
