What to expect during an Open Colonic session
Our caring, educated Love My Colon staff will show you into your room for a demonstration on how to get started. We are here to help you throughout the process. You are in professional hands when you choose Love My Colon.
Our animated video is a must watch before your first Open Colonic session. Our Open Colonic device introduces purified warm water into the colon and allows water and waste to exit in a safe and comfortable way. The client inserts the one time use only sterile rectal nozzle about 1-2 inches into the rectum and then cover with clean cotton sheet, so your modesty is always protected. Then push the call button. Your colon hydrotherapist will come into the room & show you how to begin the water intake.
Ultra clean, safe, sterile and effective. The water has the potential to reach the cecum or beginning of the ascending colon which can allow for a deeper cleanse. Colonics may remove fecal matter from lower bowel. Most clients love the privacy of the Open Colonic & being able to push when you feel full is a great relief. “No pushing at all during Closed sessions." We recommend not to eat 2-3 hours before for optimal results. To get the most out of your sessions, the industry standard recommends three sessions within a week, or three days back to back for clients who've never had colonics before. We use the Open Colonic device Lower Intestinal Bowel Bottom Evacuation (LIBBE) (FDA Registered Medical Device)
What to expect during a Closed Colon-Hydrotherapy session
Our professional, certified Colon Hydrotherapists are committed to setting the standard in Colon Hydrotherapy everyday. The atmosphere is relaxing, therapeutic & very clean. Your therapist is there throughout your entire session. This can be done on lunch break, or whenever you feel called to come in. Normally clients can continue their normal day after, although some may need to stay closer to a toilet for a few minutes after. Most people release a lot during their session & don’t feel the urge to eliminate afterwards.
We use ultra purified water to reduce the harmful effects of toxins in our water systems. We utilize pre-sterilized, one time use only disposable FDA registered speculums. Triple filtered, temperature-regulated water is introduced into the colon through your speculum. After the waste material of the colon is softened and loosened, it is evacuated through a flexible plastic hose that connects the speculum to the Colon Hydrotherapy device. There is no offensive smell or mess to worry about with the Closed system. This is a full service experience. The treatment usually lasts 45 minutes on the table. Your modesty is protected throughout the process.
Once the comfort level is reached by the guest, the water is released and flows through a disposable waste line. There is a viewing tube, so the guest is able to see everything that comes out. On average most people hold at least 5-10 pounds of waste for every foot of colon in the body, so there is usually quite a lot of release. If the guest is dehydrated, the release may take longer until the body is more hydrated with water during the treatments.All the guest has to do during the procedure is breathe. The colon hydrotherapist will use several fills and releases of water within the 45 minute time frame (usually at least 5-10 fills and 5-10 releases). At the end of the 45 minute hydrotherapy, the guest lies on their left side again, the tubing is taken out and the guest will finish in the restroom, ending the session. A dignified approach to bowel cleaning. Only the highest quality organic products and sanitary standards are incorporated in our facility.
What kind of water do we use?
We take clean water very seriously. Our facility utilizes a 3 Stage Filtration Purification System and a Whole House Purification System for maximum protection from environmental pollutants found in city water systems. Our devices use Carbon Filters which remove any sediments or impurities. We change our water filters every 30 days as recommended by the manufacturers. Each device produces a slow gentle flow of UV purified, temperature safe water, which flows gently into the rectum and releases waste naturally. Around 10 gallons of water may be used during open sessions. The water is always at a safe temperature.
What to Expect After the Therapy:
Most guests feel energized, relaxed, euphoric, a sense of lightness after, but sometimes in the beginning of any new health regime it may get worse before it gets better.
Some guests experience detox reactions & a feeling of weakness, lightheadedness, nausea, and/or general discomfort in the abdomen. This is known as a detox reaction.
This is one of the reasons 2-4 sessions are recommended within the first week. If you feel bloated, have a tender stomach, or are feeling constipated after your session please call us & book another appointment ASAP. You will feel better after your next session & the detox reaction should pass. Toxins get stirred up during the first session & a second session will usually make you feel better than normal. Drinking plenty of pure water helps to flush the system of toxins and will expedite the process of healing. This is part of the whole process of regenerating and letting go of unwanted waste.
Be Gentle & Patient with Yourself. Love all aspects of You.
How should I prepare for a colonic?
- Stay hydrated days before (Water, Fresh Organic Raw Fruits & Juices, Herbal Teas, Soups, Steamed Veggies)
- The days before your appointment eat a variety of organic fruits & vegetables — suggestion: 1/3 apple cider vinegar, 1/2 apple juice, 1/2 water drink all day, wheat grass, or aloe vera juice. It helps to dissolve accumulated fecal matter.
- Mild exercise is helpful (walking is good).
- For best results fast 2 hours prior to your appointment & light on liquid for closed sessions.
- Open Colonic’s don’t require limited liquid intake.
- Best to avoid consuming refine foods, fried foods, junk foods, white flour, bread, pasta, rice, sugars, chewing gum, and carbonated beverages. These foods will produce excess gases and may cause discomfort during your session. Some examples of gassy foods are: chewing gum, sodas, beer, all yeast producing foods (bread, muffins, some starches, etc)
One of the most important things you can do for your health is to eat local organic & raw foods. Eat what's in season and eat clean.
