Yes, as well as many other substances depending on the need of the patient. However, for a first time colonic, purified water is usually used.
No, but they can be done at home and help relieve constipation and toxic symptoms.
Yes. If the patient has severe cardiac disease, high blood pressure, aneurysm, severe anaemia, gastrointestinal perforation or haemorrage, sever haemorrhoids, cirrhosis, carcinoma of the colon or rectum, advanced pregnancy, abdominal hernia, recent colon or rectal surgery, renal insufficiency or a severe prostate condition, colonic irrigation is not recommended. A qualified colon therapist should take a detailed history and be made aware of any conditions for which colonic irrigation is not advised.
Yes, although often people will display symptoms of a toxic condition before it turns into an identifiable or serious illness- for example fatigue and tiredness, skin problems, bad breath and joint pain.
Diarrhea is often caused by pathogenic organisms or an irritant. Colonics are often very helpful in flushing them out. Diarrhea can also be another form of constipation how?.
Most of the loose bacteria living in the colon will be expelled (including putrefactive bacteria and parasites). With the removal of old waste there will be a better chance of long-term colonization of the bowel with ‘good’ bacteria. In the short-term, your practitioner may recommend you to take a probiotic culture to ‘restock’ the bowel flora, and a diet which will encourage these ‘good’ bacteria.
Many people cannot assimilate vitamins and minerals properly through their colons anyway due to toxic waste. In the longer term, the removal of toxic matter should help the patient absorb more efficiently through the colon wall.
No, on the contrary, the internal ‘massage’ provided by colonic irrigation, the variation in water temperature and the release of impacted matter from the wall of the colon should help tone the muscle of the bowel.
There is reference to colonic irrigation in the Bible which part?, and the Yogis in India were known to use their own method of physically cleansing the bowel. The first known use of colonic irrigation was by the Egyptians around 1500BC.
It depends on the condition of the colon. People with minor problems may be ‘cleaned out’ after 6 treatments or less. Someone who is seriously ill, however, may need more.
3-5lbs (1.3-2.3 kg) of debris is probably and average amount that can be lodged in the colon, although sometimes as much as 25lbs(11kg) can be present (this does not include the ‘transient matter’ present at any time).
It is not always difficult- some people experience immediate improvement. However, particularly when the patient is very ill, the effect of ‘stirring up’ old toxic debris can be to release toxins into the body which result in what are known as ‘healing reactions or crises’. How often these will occur, and how severe they will be, is unpredictable.
It is very unlikely if you are in the hands of a good practitioner. More often the bowel will already be overstretched or distorted because of retention of old faecal matter.
No, due to the low pressure used and the very small device introduced into the rectum.
What price tag does one put on their health! Health is wealth! 50usd a session.
The treatment is not painful. You may feel a slight discomfort as if having diarrhea.
