It is important to be aware of your objective when working with a colon therapist. For example, if your objective is to quickly recover from the flu or eliminate lower backache or a headache, very possible one or two colonics may be all that is needed. However, perhaps your objective is to overcome a lifelong habit of constipation, to learn to create multiple daily bowel movements and to achieve vital health. To do this may require , in addition to dietary and exercise changes, a regular colonic for some time. How many depends on the condition of your body and how well it responds to treatment.
Having colonics regularly for a while, such as weekly or multiple times per month is what is referred to as a "series". Many colon therapists believe that to obtain results of lasting benefits , a series of colonics must be undertaken. Again , this can only be properly considered once an objective has been identified.
