How will I feel after the treatment? Am I well enough to drive home?

Colon Hydrotherapy, is just that. The therapist will hydrate your bowel in order to rid toxins and fecal matter moving out of the body, so there's a feeling of relief. There is no anesthetic used to undergo a colonic procedure. You actually feel better than when you walked in.

What will be advised to you is that you do have something to eat prior to your colonic appointment and this will enable your glucose levels to be nice and balanced so you don't feel nauseous, because a colonic will allow the digestive tract to move impacted food down towards the bowel, so the stomach will feel a lot emptier, some people have experienced feeling hungry afterwards.

Do you use filtered water?

Are you a registered nurse?

There are registered nurses in the industry, but the most important factor is that the therapist is fully trained in colon hydrotherapy and exhibiting their certificate on the wall of the therapy room showing clinic hours trained in practical and theory.

Your body will let you know to eliminate what has accumulated once every 3 months after your last procedure.
