Breaking the Fast

Breaking your fast correctly is important and here at Health Republic we have a specific procedure to help you do so.

At the end of your detox, one of our staff will take you through that procedure which involves a final colon cleansing, probiotic drinks and a probiotic implant. These help to put the ‘good’ bacteria back into your system and support your immune system as you get back to eating.

Health Republic 9 and 5 Day Programmes Breaking the Fast Information

On the longer 9 and 5 day detox programmes, breaking your fast correctly is important and here at Health Republic we have a specific procedure to help you do so.

At the end of your detox, you will be given 2 probiotic drinks and an implant. These help to put the good bacteria back into your system and support your immune system as you get back to eating.

On the night before the last day of your detox programme, you will be given a probiotic drink to take. This is instead of the probiotic pill that you take every evening and should be taken before you go to bed that night. (You can save the pill you have for that day until the following evening).

On your last day (day 5 or day 9) you do your last colema, it is just warm water. You no longer need to have the stimulating effects of the coffee. You can have this colema any time you like in the morning of that last day however, the earlier you do the colema, the earlier you can start eating.

After doing the colema, the staff at the detox counter will give you your second probiotic drink to drink. They will also give you a probiotic implant which is a syringe filled with probiotic fluid. Drink the drink immediately and then wait at least one hour before you administer the implant.

When you are ready to do the implant, you simply connect your colema tip to the syringe. Then lie down (you can either use a colema room or do this on your bed), insert the colema tip as normal into your rectum and plunge the syringe. This will send the probiotic fluid up into your intestine. Hold the fluid in for as long as possible, usually there is no problem doing this for the whole day.

This process provides you with probiotics into your digestive system from the top and also from the bottom!

Congratulations, you have now completed your detox and are able to have one of the dishes on our menu. One of our staff can suggest what might be best if you would like advice but either a salad or a soup or even a fruit plate if you so wish. Please be aware that if you have any issues with sugar, then fruit can heighten your desire for sweet things after the detox.
