  • Refined sugar
  • Fried foods
  • Gas producing foods such as beans, cabbage, broccoli, etc.
  • Cow’s dairy products
  • Red meat and soy products
  • Flour

On the Day of your Colonic Session:

  • Don’t drink anything within one hour of your session
  • Eat light foods such as fruit, salad, steamed greens, whole grains and lean meats
  • Stay well-hydrated by drinking water
