What to do After a Colonic Cleanse?

The body performs its filtering process properly when the digestive system functions well. However, our lifestyle and certain medical conditions can affect our digestive system. Toxins can build up in our colon that can interrupt the body’s natural digestion. Different factors can cause toxin accumulation in the body. Toxin buildup can happen when you are too stressed, consume processed foods, alcohol, and caffeine.

When the toxins build up in the body, your body finds it hard to absorb vitamins and essential nutrients. It can result in chronic malnutrition and make the bowel toxic. A toxic bowel can contaminate the blood that spreads throughout the organs. The disease can take place in the long run as the liver deals with toxic blood. 

Regular detoxes and cleansing support holistic health and prevent disease. Many colonic and rectal diseases can be prevented or minimised through practising a healthy lifestyle, good bowel habits, and colonic cleanse.

What is a colonic cleanse?

The colon is responsible for processing the food that we consume to make bowel movement easy and convenient. This 6-foot-long muscular tube connects the small intestine to the rectum. Waste left over from the digestive process pass through the colon through peristalsis. First in a liquid form and then the feces turn to a solid form. The water is removed as the waste passes through the colon.

A colonic cleanse or colon hydrotherapy boosts your gut health and overall vitality. This safe and gentle process removes the toxin buildup in the colon and rejuvenates the weakened muscles in the body. Also known as colonic irrigation, colonic cleanse uses gallons of water instilled into the colon through a disposable rectal nozzle. This small rectal nozzle is inserted to clean the contents of the lower colon. The water that is flushed out of the colon carries the waste material that has built up in the colon.

Is colonic cleanse safe?

Colonic cleanse is generally safe provided that you receive the treatment from a professional hydrotherapist with qualified equipment. Colonic Care performs colonic irrigation using top-of-the-line equipment and ICHTA Certified hydrotherapist for the best colonic experience in Melbourne. Our procedure is very gentle and we only use warm filtered water. The tube is very small and you can insert it yourself. Some cramping may happen as the colon contracts to remove the waste. You can schedule a consultation with us to check whether a colonic cleanse is suitable for you.

What to do before a colonic cleanse?

NOTHING! – Simply come as you are. Staying hydrated before and after the session is highly encouraged.

What to do after a colonic cleanse?

Post colonic cleanse care isn’t extensive. Nevertheless, you need to look after your health and observe your body for possible changes. Doing so allows you to get the most out of the colonic irrigation. Consider doing these tips after a colonic cleanse:

  • Stay hydrated after colonic irrigation to flush the toxins from the body.
  • Consume fibre-rich foods including whole grains, leafy vegetables and fruits for easy digestion. Eating these food sources will help your digestive system.
  • Eating fermented foods promote good bacteria in the gut which is helpful after a colonic cleanse. Some fermented foods include miso soup, kimchi, sauerkraut, and pickles.
  • Processed foods and foods loaded in sugar can irritate you. Limit your intake of junk foods, dairy, and chocolates.

The next normal bowel movement may happen a day or three after the colonic irrigation session. Additionally, your bowel movement may not be normal for a couple of days after a colonic cleanse. Pay attention to the food that you eat after colonic irrigation. This may be a great time to watch the foods that irritate you and consider eliminating them from your diet or find alternatives.

The Bottomline

Colonic irrigation or colonic hydrotherapy is generally a safe procedure provided you get treatment from a trusted and reliable provider. Doing so reduces the chances of getting complications or side effects from poorly executed colonic or low-quality equipment. Experiencing mild abdominal cramps is a common side effect that goes away after the treatment.
