I LOVE to talk about taboo subjects (Kegels, birth control, vaginal steaming, yes for real, they’re coming… expect TONS of those here!), I have never shied away from those subjects because I am EXTREMELY curious and I like to do my own researches and try stuff at least once… somebody has to do it, right?
Think of me as your own guinea pig… I try things, so you don’t have to! Lol
As I’ve shared before, I love colonics and I’ve been doing them for almost 5 years now. I love how my body feels afterward and the ongoing benefits.
But since I’m not a specialist in the subject I teamed up with my dear friend Indhira Santana from My Wellness Solutions my fav colonic & holistic center in NYC, so we could bring you the realness.
If you have any other health subjects considered taboo that you would like me to talk about, let me know in the comments. I might be missing a few fun ones 🙂
What’s exactly a colonic?
Colonics is a method of removing waste from the colon without the use of drugs or laxatives. By introducing filtered water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural intestinal movement. This process is naturally repeated several times during the session.
What are the benefits of colonics?
Our client testimonials include benefits to weight loss, allergies, chronic pain, headaches, gas, bloating and especially improvements for constipation with more regular bowel movements reported. Most clients report a general sense of well-being and an “empty” feeling in the abdominal area.
* I can totally attest to this!
That sounds like TONs of pros, any cons we should know about?
It all depends on the place you go to!
For example: I had a client who went to a Groupon place and they told her she needed 4 in a row for 4 days straight. What that did was empty all the good bacteria from her colon. It also caused her to become constipated because, at the end of the day, you need somethingggggg in your colon.
This is one of the reasons we push probiotics so much when cleansing – you need your good bacteria!
Describe the process, we need details!
A session is a comfortable experience for most people, however, if discomfort is experienced, the session can be stopped at any time. Techniques utilized allow a small of water to flow into the colon, stimulating the natural bowel movements. The removal of waste encourages better colon function and bowel movements.
Why do you think colonics are such a taboo? Like for real, every time I suggest one to my friends or to my clients, they look at me like I’m crazy!
I think in general, digestive health is a taboo. I mean, when was the last time you freely talked about your bowel movements. Since it’s “gross” people don’t want to talk about it.
How do you suggest a person prepare for it?
We recommend increasing raw fruits and vegetable intake for at least 2-3 days prior to your colonic.
