Colonics indications are far reaching.

How many Colonics will I need?
This is one of the most difficult questions to answer. At Trinity Health we believe that you should receive as few treatments as is necessary to achieve the desired result. Someone who is severely constipated may need many more colonics to detox, than someone who is not. It is best to consult with us on an individual basis.
Our average amount of colonics to achieve a result is 3 -5.
What is the procedure?
Once you have made an appointment, you will need to complete an medial questionnaire. Our therapists will then revue the information and decide whether you are a candidate for colonics or not.
The colonic itself can be done on the same day. The procedure will be explained to you as we go ahead. A therapist is present at all times during the colonic.
Is a colonic messy?
Absolutely Not. We use a “closed system” which means there is no mess or smell.
Is it painful?
Most people have very little discomfort. A colonic should never be painful, however in a small amount of people some mild diarrhea like cramps are experienced. Should this occur, your therapist will gently massage your stomach and help with breathing until they pass.

There are several issues to be considered, one, if you have moderate to severe cramping during your period, having a colonic may be more uncomfortable than usual. Second, the flow of menses should be controlled with the use of a tampon, if any of these issues are a problem for you, then maybe skipping the colonic is best.
Will I be able to return to work after I have had a treatment?
The simple answer to this question is absolutely! In 99.9 percent of cases, you will feel amazing after your colonic. Most people are concerned that they will "leak" and have such serious diarrhea they will have to go straight home, this could not be further from the truth.
