No Need to Take Laxatives
There is no need to take laxatives right before your colonic hydrotherapy appointment. Colonic hydrotherapy is a gentle internal bath that filters water through the colon. This internal cleansing will flush out any waste and toxins lingering in your colon. This treatment is relaxing and meant to detox your gut, so don’t worry about feeling the need to cleanse beforehand.
Keeping hydrated before your colonic hydrotherapy will enhance the benefits of the treatment. This will allow the waste and toxins in the colon to be flushed out easier during the cleanse. On another note, avoid alcoholic and caffeinated beverages. Since it is important to be well-hydrated before the treatment, drinking alcoholic and caffeinated beverages can suck out water via the kidneys. Such liquids can also worsen bloating and gut health, so if your goal is to improve your gut, it is best to drink in moderation.
It is also important to eat healthily before your colonic hydrotherapy treatment. Eating plenty of vegetables and fiber will not only help flush out the waste easier during the treatment but also improve bowel movements and relieve constipation. Eating more fiber will help you get the most out of your colonic hydrotherapy treatment and set you up for a healthier lifestyle down the line.
