Colonic Contraindicators

Please note that the following conditions may deem a candidate ineligible for colonics unless approved/prescribed by physician: colon cancer, kidney disease/dialysis,Crohn’s disease, congestive heart failure, renal failure or insufficiency, cirrhosis of the liver, diverticulitis (acute), anemia (severe), aneurysm, carcinoma, cardiac disease, hypertension (uncontrolled), fissures/fistulas, GI hemorrhage/perforation, hemorrhoids (excessive bleeding present), herniation, prostatitis, recent abdominal surgery (last six months), tumors, and ulcerative colitis.

Detox side effects/symptoms may include, but not limited to: temporary fatigue, lightheadedness, cramping, bloating or headache. To minimize the chance of experiencing any side effects, I would suggest fasting for two hours prior to the colonic and to refrain from drinking any liquids at least one hour prior to treatment. 

I would also recommend (but not mandatory) to refrain from eating any animal products(meat) dairy, deep fried foods and alcohol for the remainder of the day post treatment. Otherwise, I suggest fasting for an additional two to four hours post treatment and eating very lightly for the rest of the day. 

Pregnant women are also unsuitable candidates for this procedure. Feel free to contact me for other suggestions/options.
