Is one colonic enough to empty bowel?

While each person is different both in their needs and responses, it is generally advisable to begin with a series of 6 to 8 colonics, with the 3 or 4 a few days apart. There are two reasons for this.

Firstly, water acts as a solvent to soften and break up encrusted waste; as colonics is a gentle therapy, this process must be repeated in order to allow the water to fully saturate hardened fecal matter, and to permeate areas where accumulation or blockages have occurred. Secondly, restoring the shape and muscle tone of the colon requires that the colon be exercised over a period of time, in much the same way as any other muscle would require a regular workout to keep it strong and toned. The colon isn’t the only organ of elimination.

Is it embarrassing to get a colonic?

No, you will fully maintain your personal dignity. You will be in a private room with only your therapist, who fully appreciates the sensitivity of the colonic procedure and will help you feel at ease. Your emotions will be acknowledged and honored. After the gentle insertion of a small tube into the rectum, you are completely covered. Rubber tubing carries clean water in and waste out in a passive gravity system. The mess and odour sometimes present during an enema simply do not exist with a colonic.
