Colonics: How to make them comfortable & efficient.

20 01 2013

How to make your colonics or colon hydrotherapy as comfortable and effective as possible.  Some people would wonder if this could really be true.  I mean, putting water up the colon has got to be uncomfortable right?  At some point, those of you who have tried colonics have had at least one that was uncomfortable.

The reason the colonic was not comfortable is for 3 main reasons;        top_pic_naturopathic-1

1. Inflammation from foods that you are sensitive to.

2. Spastic colon.

3. Inflammation from parasites & yeast.

4. Lack of fiber.

I am here to tell you that when your colon is functioning correctly, without these problems, it WILL be a COMFORTABLE COLONIC.


1.  Make sure you avoid or find out if you don’t know first, foods that are irritating to your intestines.  This is part of  what I normally do when people come to see me for an assessment prior to starting the colonics.  I test and see what foods they are sensitive to.  It varies from person to person, but wheat & dairy of often culprits, but there are many other foods that can be irritating to the person as well.

2. Take Magnesium Glycinate or Magnesium Citrate at least 1 week prior to help soften the stools and relax the colon so it can move without cramping both on the toilet & during the colonic.  Tip: To determine whether your colon is spastic observe whether you have very skinny stools at times and whether or not you have pain or discomfort in the upper left area of the colon.  (Situated just below the ribs on the left side.)  Make sure you are taking enough so that you are having at least 2 bowel movements per day or at least 1 time per day if you were not doing that prior to taking the Magnesium  This really helps your colon allow enough water to enter it during the colonic so that you can get rid of the waste without discomfort or very minimal discomfort.

3. Eat fermented foods daily.  Rotate the fermented foods that you eat so that your gut will have the right combination of bacteria & friendly yeast to colonate your intestines.  This will “crowd” out those nasty parasites & the pathogenic yeast & fungi.  If you do have a strain that is quite pathogenic you will need the help of herbs to completely eliminate them, BUT your infestation will be easier to get rid of because you have built up the microorganisms in your gut.

4. Take a fiber drink at least daily in the morning.  Start with 2 tbsp of ground flax seeds or take 1 to 3 tsp of psyllium hulls combination power by Nature’s Sunshine ( it is very high quality) or mix together, depending on what you can handle.   Mix quickly in water or a diluted, unsweetened juice and drink down, wait 30 minutes before eating or drinking anything else.

These are general steps to take for everyone, in order to determine what your needs are specifically you really must see a holistic health practitioner prior to starting the colonics.  I suggest at least 1 week.
