Clean Out Your Colon To Have A Healthy Start For Spring

man-with-stomach-pain

Spring is here, which means that it is time to clean out body. Put your house/apartment/bungalow on hold for a second and take time to care for your shrine and temple that is your body. The body is constantly working, so cleaning it out is a way to give back and make things easier on your body. This is why Dherbs recommends colonics.

 

Performed by a professional and skilled colonic irrigation specialist in a safe, hygienic, and pleasant facility and utilizing modern and state-of-the-art colonic hydrotherapy equipment, colonics are very safe. Colonics help to cleanse the large intestine (colon) and the sigmoid (lower bowel).

 

What Are Some of the Health Benefits To Be Expected From Colonics?

Some of the health benefits from colonics include:

  • Weight release
  • Clearer skin and complexion
  • Frequent bowel movements
  • Improved lymphatic circulation
  • Purified blood
  • Elimination of mucus
  • Mental clarity
  • More energy or vitality
  • Elimination of worms and parasites
  • Enhanced activity of major eliminative channels and organs

 

How Often Should I Have Colonics Performed?

Ideally, if it is your first time getting a colonic, you should have a series of 12 colonics performed – a session every other day (or 3 times per week) for four weeks straight, totaling about a month in duration.

 

However, because colonic sessions can be expensive for many people, ranging in price from $55-$100 depending on what facility and colonic hydro-therapist you visit, many people may not be able to afford the necessary 12 colonics to properly introduce themselves to the world of proper colon hygiene.

 

When budget is an issue, simply get at least 3 sessions performed and do your best to get another 3 sessions done as soon as possible until you have 12 sessions under your belt. It is worth saying that if you are participating in one of the Dherbs cleanses, you may want to avoid frequent colonics, as you will already be cleansing the colon.

 

After your initial 12 rounds or sessions of colonics, you may simply opt to have colonics (one session) performed once a month, a series of 3 colonics performed every three months, or whatever schedule best suits your health needs and personal schedule.

 

Preparing For Your Colonic Session

Schedule your colonic at least a week in advance. This gives you seven days to prepare for the colonic or series of colonics.

The day before your colonic appointment, make sure you do not eat anything after you eat dinner. It may help you out if you schedule your session(s) in the morning so that way you’ll only be skipping breakfast and won’t have to worry about hunger.

 

What Goes On During A Colonic?

A colonic session usually lasts about 45-60 minutes. The process is typically painless, with the exception of the insertion of the speculum into the rectum, which could cause a little discomfort physically and psychologically (a lot of people are adverse to having something inserted into their anus).

 

Though some people may feel shy that their anus is being exposed to a stranger, however, this person (stranger) should be seen and viewed as someone who is helping you – helping you to reclaim and restore your health, especially the health of your colon.

 

Before you start the colonic, you’ll be asked to lean or turn on one side so the hydro-therapist can insert the speculum into your rectum via your anus. It helps to take a deep breath before the speculum is being inserted.

 

Your head should rest comfortably on a headrest (of the colonic table) or perhaps a pillow. It all depends on the facility and hydro-therapist you go to. The hydro-therapist will turn on the water lever, allowing cool to moderately warm water to enter into your colon via the rectum. You will or should feel the water entering your body.

 

After a certain amount of water is entered into your body the hydro-therapist may begin to massage your stomach or press into your stomach (so as to break up gas pockets and to loosen hardened stools or feces that are like bricks along the walls of your colon).

 

After doing the above for a few seconds or minutes, he/she will turn the lever allowing a release (of water, feces, and other debris). It is also normal upon the first few releases to see that your water coming out of you is clear. If this is the case, chances are you’re pretty blocked and it may take some time for a release full of waste to exit your body. Many times, people don’t have a good release due to psychological factors (i.e. embarrassment, shyness, feeling awkward, etc.).

 

After the speculum is removed from your rectum, you’ll be told (or should be told) to go to the restroom and sit on the toilet for a few minutes so as to release any water still in your colon and/or rectum. To help expel water, press on your stomach (about 2 inches under your navel) with your fingers for a few seconds. Press in different spots around the front of your stomach.

 

A little water may seep out from your rectum after the session and while you have your clothes back on. It may also feel as if you defecated on yourself but it’s not the case. It just may feel like it. However, it’s just water from the session making its way out of the body.

 

What Can I Expect To See During My Colonic?

You could possibly see old fecal matter (which you can tell by its dark color). Dark colored fecal matter denotes old fecal matter stored in the body possibly for years or decades. Lighter colored fecal matter denotes most recent fecal matter from recent foods consumed. Whatever you may see, just be thankful it is leaving your body.

 

Post Colonic and Repopulation of Beneficial Intestinal Flora?

Many people are concerned about what happens to the beneficial intestinal flora after colonics are performed. If you’re really worried about the beneficial intestinal flora after your colonic, you could always take a few capsules of acidophilus (acidophilus bifidus) or a liquid form of acidophilus (dairy-free, of course).

 

Drink a minimum of 4 ounces of vegetable or carrot juice after a colonic session. If you’re into carrot juice, carrot juice is just as effective as acidophilus in restoring good bacteria in the intestines. Juiced cantaloupe is even better than carrot juice in restoring the beneficial flora.

 

The best thing to consume after your colonic session would be vegetable juice (if possible), followed by a big green leafy salad. Next would be steamed vegetables and maybe some brown rice. Simply remember to eat light, not heavy, after your colonic.

    Q: I am a massage therapist. During a year long detox with the help of a Naturopath I lost about 40 pounds. However, I could only lose weight while fasting. Though I recognized that I was extremely toxic (very thick, dark menses every 15 days to flu-like symptoms) it seemed that fecal matter was getting "stuck" in the bend of the trans. Colon and disc. Colon. Maintaining the weight losses and good health was difficult in spite of being on a wholesome diet. Digestive enzymes seemed to adversely affect digestion since elimination was slow (once a day). Though enzymes worked well in the stomach, I would only gain weight with the use of enzymes: drinking a gallon of water a day only touched my extreme thirst. I would become lethargic and experience painful menses. Cramps, along with swelling in the ankles. Recently a massage therapist who worked with colon massage laid hands on me and told me that my trans. colon was sitting below my belly button. His massaging in the bend of the trans. colon and the disc. Colon was very uncomfortable. We agreed that massage could help with my situation since I felt great after the massage. I take flaxseed oil, prune juice, probiotics, and cranberry juice everyday and I have been seeing a colon hydro therapist for the past five weeks (once a week) with very good results. Is there a special diet that can help pull the trans colon back into position? I really want to be able to eat wholesome foods and look and feel wholesome at the same time. Thank you for your support.

    A:

    I WOULD RECOMMEND COLON REPAIR. CONSIDER THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE AND IT'S CORRELATING DIET (WHICH COMES WITH THE CLEANSE) AND DRINK MUCH VEGETABLE AND FRUIT JUICE, BUT ESPECIALLY VEGETABLE JUICE. FRUITS SMOOTHIES WILL ALSO HELP REPAIR THE COLON. DRINK 2-4 OUNCES OF ALOE VERA JUICE IN A GLASS OF WATER. PERFORM ANTI-GRAVITY EXERCISES 15-MINUTES PER DAY (HAVE LEGS RAISED HIGHER THAN THE FACE - I.E. LEGS UP AGAINST THE WALL WITH HEAD AND BACK ON THE GROUND). PERFORM ENEMAS AND COLONICS AS WELL. ALL ORGANS ARE REPAIRABLE AND THEREFORE YOU CAN HEAL YOURSELF OF THIS CRISIS. PEACE, OPTIMAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING BE UNTO YOU.

    Q: I am writing you with concern for my father. He is 54 years old, and was just diagnosed with an enlarged heart. He is very worried, and to be honest I am too. I told him that he immediately needs to go on the Full Body Detox. Start a raw foods diet that includes no meats, and no dairy. Do you think he should get a colonic? Should he get it first? He began running this morning, and has been walking in the evenings. He has a HUGE stomach. It looks as if he is about 8 months pregnant. SOLID! We live in the Philadelphia Area and we are Muslim. The only person we know that is GOOD as far as colonics is a female, and he has some reservations about that. My mother always says "Do what you gotta do". What steps should he take to heal his body? In what order? I know it may be kind of hard to diagnose, or give steps to a third person. I am really concerned, and afraid that his concern may cause more damage to his heart. I am almost certain that my father would not mind talking to you. He may be impressed with your knowledge. All the herbalist we know thus far have been women. As soon as he told us of his illness I immediately thought of you. I pray that you can help us. We all as a family need to get our health together. PLEASE HELP US the best way you can. . . . .

    A:

    It's the easiest thing to take care of. Detox the body with the Full Body Detox followed by the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse. He will drink Hearty Heart tea during both cleanses. The man has eaten himself into this condition via poor diet so reversed diet is the way out. More raw foods (fruits and vegetable), vegetable juice.

    Q: I just got finished the Full Body Detox, and feeling good. But I still have the issue I was hoping the detox would take care of. I seem to have some swelling or puffiness under my ear; it seems to be the mucus gland, and or the lymph nodes by my jawbone near my ear, in the morning it always feels like there?s water in my ear. What would u suggest, I was thinking about the parasite cleanse, and I still have some sinus issues. I'm in MD and would like to get an ear coning cleaning, a foot detox, and a colonic, do u know of places in MD, or D.C.? Thanks again.

    A:

    Glad to hear your detox went well. Sounds like a lot of mucus buildup in the ear area. I suggest ear coning and lymphatic massage. Herb-wise, give the Parasite and Worm Kit and regimen a try; for sinus problems I recommend Sinus Formula and Mucus Buster. The Foot Detox and a colonic will do you wonders. However, I don't know of any places or practitioners of such therapies. However, a Dherbs resource is coming soon to help in situations like this. You may be able to get help at a natural foods store or Whole Foods Market where they have boards (message boards) where people list a lot of things.

    Q: I am on the full body cleanse. I never take any kind of herb or pill that is a laxitive as I have bowel movements 3 or more times a day - whenever I eat. I have noticed that I have very loose stools - diarrhea. I do not have an impacted colon as I have had colonics - eat a veg diet, primarily and have several cups of vegetables a day. Should I cut down on the supplement that has the laxative containing herbs?

    A:

    In re diarrhea, please READ our Detox Troubleshooter guide on our website.

    Loose stool suggests that you need more drinking water to help soften and loosen your stools which are too hard!

    Q: I have already purchased both FULL BODY DETOX and DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. I was going to do the full body first then the colon cleanse as you suggested. I decided I should go ahead and order the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN because; well I want to get rid of as much waste/weight that I can. I feel sluggish, disgusting and toxic! Is it ok if I perform the weight loss regimen followed by the full body detox then colon cleanse? I am going away for a few weeks and this would work out much better for me as far schedule goes... Or is there a particular order I should follow to make my goal much more effective? I am not sure how strict the airlines are and I doubt I can find organic prune juice and undiluted cranberry juice where I am going....

    A:

    It's okay that you perform the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN first before the others. The key thing is that you perform all three kits.

    Q: I've been a vegan for 2 years now. I've done the FBD 3 times in these two years, but my urine is still yellow. The only time it is clear is immediately after I drink water (reverse osmosis water). If I miss a day of drinking water, my urine goes back to being dark yellow. Does this mean that my body is still very toxic? Also, is it normal to release urine 5 to 15 minutes after drinking liquids? I would think that water would need to stay in the body for awhile for proper hydration and cleansing.

    A:

    From what you wrote I would suggest you start drinking alkaline water (purchase an alkaline water machine, you can find various brands in our e-book "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual"). If you are urinating within 10-15 minutes of drinking water you are not absorbing the water, and thus you require micro-clustered water which an alkaline (and ionizing) water machine does. I also highly recommend consumption of our Kidneys-Bladder formula (3 capsules per day).

    Q: My daughter Heather is 4 yrs. old and is battling Candida. She has been on antibiotics from the age of 2 months till 1 yr. old about 8 times for ear infections. She developed constipation at 7 months, food allergies at 1 yr. and a lot of food intolerances. She also had heartburn and was getting bad rashes around her mouth when she ate. Unfortunately, I did not know about Candida so this went on for a couple of years. Despite my efforts of taking her to every doctor there was, no one could help me. Right now she is on a treatment for Candida, but she is so sensitive, she can't even tolerate a lot of the supplements. Her bowels do not move at all. I have to do enemas everyday to keep them going. Right now I'm having a hard time finding a laxative she can tolerate. I ordered the "Children?s laxative extract" from DHERBS but after 4 days of being on it her bowels still aren't moving. I started colonic therapy sessions for my daughter and we saw parasites come out of her. When I called DHERBS, I was recommended to e-mail you. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    For Candida, please know the antibiotic medication is the present cause of her persisitent candida (yeast infection). Read our article "Candida Albicans." She needs anti-fungal herbs, not antibiotic medication. These are harming her body.

    The child is very acidic and this may be due to her diet (what you are feeding the child).

    Have your child perform the Children's Detox for starters. A basic cleanse is greatly needed!

    To target the Candida, make your child a tea consisting of Pau' D Arco. Let the tea cool down and add maple syrup (or agave nectar) and a little lemon. Let the child drink this sweetened tea throughout the day (even as a cold beverage).

    Bathe the child in warm water and sea salt (1 box per bath). Add 5-6 drops of tea tree oil to each bath as well. Let the child soak in the water for 30-60 minutes. This bath is very alkalizing (which counteracts acidity).

    Because she has parasites, have the child drink pomegranate juice (often) and eat plenty of pumpkin seeds (often).

    For the enemas, make a tea of Dherbs Bowel Mover tea (let cool down). Pour tea into enema bag and perform an enema with the tea as the enema solution. Some days switch off from the tea and just add hydrogen peroxide (half an ounce per enema bag) to the enema solution (distilled water). Hydrogen peroxide breaks down into oxygen which kills parasites. You could even add 30 drops of Oxy-Drops to the enema bag and perform an enema using liquid oxygen.

    It is imperative you put the child on a vegan vegetarian diet a.s.a.p.! Remove all meat and dairy products as well as all refined grains from her diet (as these feed worms and parasites).

    Have the child drink prune juice before going to bed each night. Dilute the juice with water if necessary.

    The child needs to eat a lot of fruits (i.e. plums, apples).

    Continue to give the child Dherbs Children?s laxative extract daily, perhaps in the early evening hours.

    Doing all of the above will cause positive changes in your child's situation. Just remember, drugs won't help her. Read ou article "Herbs vs. Pharmaceutical drugs" on our site.

    Q: I'm on my 10th day of the Full body cleanse and I have only dropped like 5 pounds. When I go walking and come back to weigh myself. I see that I'm down like 3 lbs. But, when I weigh myself the next morning, I still only lost 5 pounds. I have lost my appetite completely. I eat fruits and a small salad other than that, I have no desire to eat. I have bowel movements about 3 times a day however, they are not regular size bowel movements. I even had a colonics yesterday, and not much happened with that, no movement. I'm just wondering what can I do to optimize my weight lost with this detox? I had taken smooth move too... still no change... Please advise.

    A:

    Stop putting so much energy (emphasis) on how much (weight) you're losing. You're creating a block for yourself. In fact, you should even stop weighing yourself. Only do so after you complete the cleanse. Just focus on how you feel, and what you desire -- your objective, okay!

I am in constant pain.

    A:

    I highly suggest you first perform our Full Body Detox (maybe twice, back to back). After the Full Body Detox, I would suggest you try our Weight Release kit and regimen which will help you to regulate your weight. Consider a vegan and raw foods diet. Order our Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual and check out these diets and how to incorporate them into your life.

    After your cleanses, your daily regimen should consist of: Thyroid Formula, Electric Greens, Weight Loss (Release) Formula, Bowel Mover, and HYPERLINK "http://www.dherbs.com/store/rainforest-tonic-tea-p-289.html" Rainforest tea.

    No drugs will really help your condition. I don't recommend medication but it's your choice in the end!

    For pain, we have a Headache and Pain (Bio-salicin) formula which works well with MSM Sulfur (of which you need to take 9-15 capsules per day, maybe 3-5 capsules three times a day).
