  • To allow sufficient time for testing and questions, plan to be here at least one hour.
  • At the end of your visit you may be given some instructions and a list of foods to avoid for 24 hours.
  • Please eat before your appointment. You may be asked to avoid food for a short time after your visit or to eat very little. Do not come to the office hungry.

If you receive a treatment on the first visit:

  • Do not shop for 8 hours after treatment (please shop in advance of your visit).
  • Do not go to a restaurant for 8 hours after treatment (for any reason).
  • Do not visit a hair salon, barber shop or nail salon for 12 hours after being treated.

  • Do not consume alcohol for 12 hours after treatment.
  • Do not eat a large meal after treatment.
  • You may be given a list of additional things to avoid for 24 hours after treatment.

The restrictions above are designed for the worst case scenario.

We have designed these suggestions based on years of practical experience. You may be able to break some or all of the rules and do just fine, or you may bend one rule and have to repeat the visit. You will have the best chance for success if you follow all the suggestions. The restrictions are to be followed for 24 hours, a small price to pay for a long term benefit.
