Tips to build a better 'you'
So that you get the maximum benefit from your treatment, we recommend you make a few tweaks to your daily activities to prepare yourself for the great gift you’re about to give your body.
But don’t be too hard on yourself if you can’t stick to the below advice – you can still benefit from a colonic even if you cheat a bit on these suggestions!
Tip #1 – Stay hydrated
Try to drink at least 2 litres of filtered water per day. Even better if it’s alkaline water!
The best way to start your day is with a tall glass of warm water and the juice of half a lemon squeezed into it. If you prefer, you can use a teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar (organic and raw) instead of the lemon juice.
Also, you can’t give your body a better gift than a daily fresh cold-pressed juice or a big green smoothie!
Tip #2 – Things best to avoid
I know it’s tough for many of us, but if you can avoid the following items for at least 2 days prior to your treatment, your colonic is going to be so much more enjoyable.
- Red Meat
- Alcohol, Coffee and Soft Drinks
- Wheat and Heavy Carbs e.g. white bread and pasta
- Processed junk food e.g. sugar, chocolates, chips, cakes and biscuits
Make sure you chew your food well. Digestion starts in your mouth – the more you chew, the better you’ll poo!
Tip #3 – On the day
We recommend you eat light on the day of your colonic. Try not to eat or drink too much for about 2 hours before your treatment.
After your treatment
It’s important to drink plenty of water after your colonic to help your body continue to flush out toxins. We have plenty of complimentary kombucha, alkaline water and herbal teas for you to drink afterwards (and we also have our fridge stocked with coconut water and other goodies for sale).
You're invited to kick back on our couch after your colonic - relaxing is all part of the 'letting go' process and eliminating the junk that doesn't serve you anymore!
As for your diet, eat plenty of fruit and vegetables (preferably raw or gently steamed if your body is not used to a high-raw diet). Continue to avoid red meat, alcohol, caffeine, sugar and heavy meals that will slow you down.
