scheduled for colonic on thurs

12 posts in this topic

i'm really nervous about this colonic because i've heard that patients have died because the solution was not balanced...that it was just plain water which gets absorbed into your body and messes up the equilibrium in your system...

those of you who have had an enema or colonic before, please give me some advice or tips! thanks!

:blink: Died? :blink:

Naw....I don't think that's the case, except in maybe a rare exception (I've never heard of any deaths). It's important to go to someone who is experienced, though.

One very important thing to remember, and I'm glad I knew about it when I got my last colonic. Get some Emergen-C from the healthfood store (vitamin c plus electrolytes). It's VERY IMPORTANT to take it after receiving a colonic. I got lots of "fills" in my last colonic, and I got some cramping afterward. Fortunately, I was going to the healthfood store right after, and I picked up some Emergen-C there and I took it (it's a powder you mix with an inch or two of water), and in about 20 minutes, the cramps had subsided almost totally. Then, when I got home, I took another packet and BAM! The cramps were totally gone.

Keep in mind that this isn't common....my hydrotherapist didn't have an appointment behind me and so she just kept filling me up; I had a lot of gook to get out. It can dehydrate you a bit, but if you take some electrolytes, you will be just fine.

The process itself is very simple and not uncomfortable for the most part. I didn't get colonics for years, even knowing about them, because I just felt uncomfortable with it. But now...I'm so glad that I have done it!

how long does a session normally last? i think that a patient might have "died" because they were on a very extended colonic...in which you DO absorb enough water overtime to destroy your body's balance. but i've been reading how there are actually more regulations now and the clinic should be certified.

anywho, i changed my colonic to next tuesday...

is the emergen-c just a solution of vitamin c?

No worries Perseus...we realize that there is an abundance of contradicting information on the internet. That's why we feel it's best to trust our own instincts and research.

Reader Protest

We received this e-mail response from someone who apparently has deep feelings on this subject:

Since you think you're so informed on what would constitute staying healthy, why don't you actually stay on top of MEDICAL RESEARCH. Scientists have discovered 90% of the seratonin in the body is produced IN THE COLON WALL. AND they've realized we have a second brain, which is located in the wall of the intestine. The conclusion is that our health depends on the health of the colon. How can a colon weighing 30 pds (as many autopsy's find), be healthy? YOU ARE THE QUACK. Are the drug companies giving you a kick back?!? You should be ashamed of your life's work. You do nothing but harm people. The medical establishment, kills more people in a month, than natural medicine has in 50 years. Why don't you do some legitamite research. You just like the attention of knocking down people legitamately trying to help people. I hope your parents aren't still alive to see what you've become.
