The colon (large intestine),
is the last portion of the human digestive tract. It is approximately 5 feet
long and 2 ½ inches in diameter. The main function is elimination of waste
and absorption of water and minerals.
What is constipation?

Will I experience any
intestinal discomfort or fatigue after the cleansing?
Usually not, but since the
cleansing will stir up a lot of old debris and toxins, you might experience
some minor nausea or fatigue. If any discomfort occurs, it is recommended to
rest and apply a warm heating pad to the abdomen. If you wish, a mild
vegetable broth or peppermint tea is usually soothing at this time. Any
discomfort will usually pass within 24 hours.
Do I need to take acidophilus
(good bacteria) after a colon cleansing because intestinal flora has
been washed out of the colon?
Colon hydrotherapy cleansings do
not wash out intestinal flora. Taking acidophilus after a colon cleansing is
beneficial, because it helps to improve the bacterial balance in the colon.
The best method is to implant the flora rectally the evening after your
final therapy session, or if you prefer, to drink acidophilus for two weeks
after the final therapy session.
