Most clients experience a sense of lightness, feelings of happiness, joy and freeness that they have never had before. Describing it as “a feeling like a big weight had been lifted from their body” and “ a heightened mental, emotional and physical clarity”, clients often float out of the office as if they are on top of the world. Although most participants feel high levels of energy, some however may experience transient effects of the toxins being stirred up. This process is called a “Healing Crisis”.
The symptoms may include: aches, pains, headaches, nausea, fatigue, hunger, feelings of sadness, anger, bloating, hives, skin eruptions etc. These symptoms are all natural responses to the healing process and will pass. Drinking plenty of water helps to flush the system of toxins. It is very important NOT to suppress these symptoms with over the counter or western medicines. Please allow your body to heal itself!!! This is part of the whole process of regenerating and shedding the very things that made your body sick to begin with. When you heed the call to pass through this transition phase, you are sure to come out shining on the other side, invigorated and renewed.
Please note: The most common post colonic experience is a slight delay in bowel movements and then a resumption of somewhat larger, easier to move stool. Sometimes if the colon is weak and sluggish, there may be no bowel movement for several days after the colonic. This is not due to the colonic, but rather to the weakness of the muscles in the colon and indicates that the colon requires strengthening and healing, thus more treatments.
