Colon irrigations can be done at any time of the year. Most people choose to have one monthly on a maintenance schedule. For those who eat clean on a regular basis choose to receive their sessions once a quarter, or every season change. Maintenance schedule really depends upon lifestyle, if you consume large amounts dairy, caffeine and alcohol and refined foods.
Prior to establishing a maintenance schedule, most people seem to start out with 3-5 sessions close together, and then taper off based on goals and needs. As everyone has bio-individuality, only you can decide what will work best for you. If you feel you are not sure, your therapist can help you navigate through optimal results.
During a juice cleanse, as you are not consuming solid matter, many people experience constipation. Ideally, for a short 3-day cleanse, you want to cleanse the colon on the first day and on the last day. For more extensive juice cleanses, typically people will choose a colonic every other day during the cleanse. Sometimes an individual can experience a healing crisis during a cleanse; ie. headaches, skin rash/break outs, fatigue. Many people report that having a colon irrigation during a healing crisis has helped them alleviate these symptoms.
There is nothing to do to prep for a colon irrigation. We find that people experience better releases the more hydrated they are. Drinking a great deal of water the day before your session should give your body enough time to assimilate the hydration.
Thank you for your questions Allie. We look forward to serving you!
