I have been seeing Mel at The Colonic Clinic Capalaba, for a little over 8 months now. So I thought it was time for a Colonic update. I have had 20 colonics now and feeling amazing about the whole journey. Every time I have a colonic I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders and my brain has had a mental clear out.
A lot of you ask me regularly why I get them? Well firstly they are a great way to rid the toxins from my body. I also have them to support my own gut health, I love getting them for my emotional well being as well.
In my previous blog, My journey with Mel from The Colonic Clinic Capalaba (part 2) I had told you I was getting Colonics once a month on my period. Well a little has changed since then. I fell pregnant with our third child. So as soon as I found out this wonderful surprise I instantly told Mel. She told me it was time for a little break during the first trimester and for me to allow my bubba to grow. Mel told me the reason behind my colonic break during the first trimester, was due to the baby forming and growing its organs, plus you don’t want toxins stirring around in the mother’s blood. Mel said she was happy to continue treating me again once my second trimester commenced as she had been treating me previously to this pregnancy. I had also had two births and 6 months of colonics prior. I personally was happy as well to continue my colonic journey, as I knew I would be able to determine the difference between labour pain/contractions and poo cramps. Mel and I have a strong professional/client based relationship which plays a significant role in my treatment. For my last trimester I will chat to my OB about getting a slightly different treatment from a colonic, but I will explain that closer to that time.
I really missed my colonics during the first 3 months of my pregnancy, but I knew it was best for my growing bubba. I had my first one back a few weeks ago and let‘s just say it was the most relaxing procedure yet. Gosh it felt good to get back into them.
So what have I noticed since our last Colonic update…
Improvements to my skin – I made the switch to organic skin care products and facials earlier in the year. I have found that having colonics alongside this, is a great combination for my skin. I get extremely dry skin and I feel the Colonics hydrate me from the inside out. After a Colonic I feel like my organs have had a much needed drink! Mel uses ONLY purified water for the duration of the Colonic Hydrotherapy session.
I nourish my body with even more fruit and veggies - Yes that’s right. I feel that having these procedures, allows me to listen to my body and be more in tune with it. I know I feel great when I consume lots of colourful earthy plant based foods. I fill my plate with nourishing goodies and have eaten a lot less meat products. I do not eat dairy anyway but feel even better cutting out the meat too.
I say bye bye to parasites and tape worms everytime – Yes even the healthiest of us have them. I have only seen lots of little ones clinging to my waste, but sometimes I forget to look in the clear poo flushing pipe as I am so relaxed in there so I could be missing loads.
My Pelvic Floor is well trained – I think its from holding in the water, you switch on your pelvic floor and abdo muscles each time. #winning
My poops are wrist to elbow length everyday - haha TMI? hehehe NEVER we are talking about Colonics after all. My bowel motions are right on clock twice a day. I have never in my life had clockwork bowel motions. I also have a step in my toilet so I can have a correct technique during my daily poop experience haha.
My shifts during my colonics get more and more every time – It still amazes me that every colonic I have, my shift gets bigger and bigger! I let go of more crap from my body. Mel has a poo chart in her consultation area and we go through what number my poo was (see poo chart below). We discuss what my shift was like over coconut water and green smoothie, post treatment shots. Sometimes during my shift I get quite emotional. When I have a big shift I usually am extremely patient mentally and feel so light afterwards like I literally let that shit go.
My eye sight is clearer – this was one of the first huge changes I noticed. I still feel this is the case. “I can see clearly now the rain as gone” seriously though it’s mind blowing.
I sleep amazing after Colonics – Sometimes that night post treatment I have quite vivid dreams too.
My concentration levels are always at an all time high post treatment – Yes even with baby brain hehe.
