For a day or two before and after a session, drink lots of filtered or distilled water, herbal teas, and fresh
juices, along with eating fresh, organic and seasonal vegetables, fruits, whole grains, soups, and lighter
proteins. Eating this way naturally creates a healthier intestinal cleansing atmosphere and also reduces the
possibilities of both excess gas build-up and delay in resuming your proper elimination function.
Minimize your consumption of dairy, sugar, wheat, and red meat and please remember to chew thoroughly!
The following are examples of healthy, cleansing foods to include:• Herbal teas – chamomile, dandelion, green, peppermint• Fruits – apricots, bananas, blueberries, figs, grapes, melons, oranges, papayas, peaches, pears, prunes• Protein shakes – rice, hempseed, or whey• Proteins – fish, poultry, tempeh, tofu, seeds• Juices – vegetable and fruit• Vegetables – preferably seasonal, beets, celery, cucumber, lettuces, parsnips, squashes, sweet potatoes,
sprouts, yams; leafy greens such as collard, kale, lettuces, mustard, swiss chard, watercress, parsley
• Seaweeds – dulse, kelp, kombu, nori• Whole grains – amaranth, barley, basmati rice, long grain brown rice, buckwheat, millet, quinoa• Breads (if you must) – gluten-free, Ezekiel’s Food for Life, or Manna varieties

On the day of your session, eat or drink mostly vegetables and fruits. This puts your body into a deeper
cleans ing mode. Remember water. However, try to avoid eating or drinking for two hours before your
appointment so that you're not digesting or needing to empty your bladder during your session.
After your session you may eat and drink as soon as you’d like, following the recommendation for this day.
Electrolyte-type drinks, such as Emergen-C and Recharge, are suggested along with a probiotic supplement orfood including acidophilus and bifidus, like goat's yoghurt or kefir. Also consider miso, sauerkraut, rejuvelac,and chlorophyll-rich foods, such as wheat grass, dark greens, or algae. This is an excellent time to juice.

It is not uncommon for 1-3 days to pass before your first bowel movement after a session.
Please be patient.
Remember that the whole digestive tract is one long tube (7 times the length of your body if stretched out!)
so it may take some time for your colon to refill. What you eat and drink will determine how the redefining of
your colon's shape and movement will occur. Remember to drink lots of water. If you are particularly sensitive,
avoid raw vegetables, red meat, and alcohol. Please avoid overeating.
Until you have a bowel movement, I suggest that you eliminate foods that you know to be allergic, constipating,
gas producing and bloating. Some of these may be:• Bread, cheese, chocolate, desserts, fatty & fried foods, ice cream, junk & processed foods, milk, sugar &
wheat products, along with caffeine, carbonated drinks, and sodas
• Gas-producing foods: beans, cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and
cauliflower), onions, peppers, raw & unpeeled apples, and soy products
