When and how often should I do colonics and enemas?

You should only do colonics and enemas when your body truly needs them. If you are overdoing them, your kidneys (lower back) will ache and you may feel overly tired. Signs of cleansing such as swollen glands, sore throats, a tender abdomen, depression, bloating, and constipation are your body's way of telling you that you need to cleanse the colon. A competent colon therapist will be able to help you determine how often you should schedule your colonics and home enemas. When first beginning the diet, we generally suggest a series of 10 colonics to facilitate the cleansing process. Be sure to get plenty of rest, replenish electrolytes by adding electrolyte trace minerals to the colonic water, drink apple cider vinegar, and take friendly bacteria after getting a colonic or doing an enema. Please remember that these procedures are used to help rid the body of toxins during a cleansing cycle, not to purge abuses such as bingeing on junk foods, drugs, alcohol, and the feelings of guilt and self-loathing associated with eating disorders. When these techniques are used for the wrong reasons and done excessively, they can be harmful.
