If you've been reading my blog you know that I have been trying to eat healthy, lose weight, etc. I was doing great for a while and then I don't know something changed and I went back to my old eating habits and I saw every single bad choice show up on my body.
Before we went on vacation I vowed that when we got back I would start over for the last time. I started with the 10 day Green Smoothie Detox Cleanse. I'm actually on Day 7 as I write this. I've done so much reading on the purposes of detox and what to do while detoxing. Almost every article and book mentions cleansing the colon. One of the ways mentioned in the book, by JJ Smith, suggests taking Mag 07 pills. I'm not much for taking pills so that didn't appeal to me. It also mentions a salt water flush. Well, I tried that before and nothing happened. So, for this cleanse I wanted to do an effective colon cleanse. I looked up benefits of colon cleansing and in addition to aiding in the detox process, it is said to help with clear skin (I've been struggling with that for a little while now), help with regular bowel movements, flatten the stomach (Yes, PLEASE!) and to get rid of all toxins.
I researched colon hydrotherapy and found a few places that offered them. All of them are in Dubai. The one place that I was sold on, their therapist is on vacation and will go on maternity leave shortly after she returns. So, the research had to continue.
I found another place, read the reviews and decided to reach out and check their availability. I'm going to Dubai Herbal & Treatment Center.
They emailed me back the very next day and told me that they had availability for today! TODAY! I'm going to get a Colon Hydrotherapy in just a few short hours. I've read up on what I could experience afterwards and what to expect during. I'm nervous but I'm ready!
We get to Dubai Herbal & Treatment Center and my stomach falls. The nervousness sets in. We go inside, I fill out a few forms, and I wait. After just a few minutes (enough time for me to go the restroom) a nurse comes and takes me to a little office. They take my blood pressure, weight, and height. I notice that I've lost a little weight. Insert smiley face! 😀
More waiting. The therapist comes and takes me to the procedure room. We get to the room and it looks calming. She gives me a nice gown to put on and as I'm putting it on I'm talking myself into calmness. I come out of the restroom and she asks me to lay on the table and turn on my side. As I'm laying there she asks me a few questions and without warning I feel it. She inserts a tube into my butt (for lack of a better word)!
Now I begin to breathe so deep. Thank goodness I've been doing yoga these last few days. LOL!
I'm laying there and questioning myself.
Why did I choose to do this?
Why am I here?
She tells me what is about to happen. Water is going to be slowly sent into my colon. When I feel cramps I need to let her know but I need to try and hold as much water as I can.
I tried to be a trooper and hold in as much as I could. I kept feeling like I had to ____________ fill in whatever word you use for making a bowel movement. After a little while I let her know I couldn't hold any more and then relief came along with her pushing on my abs.
I'm not going to go into detail about what she said next but she pretty much narrated what she saw.
After about 5 or so times of the filling with water and the release and her narration, it was over. She took the tube out and I went to the bathroom...again! As I walked out I did feel lighter. Now I'm ready to see the benefits if any! Here's to hoping!
