Colonic/Flush Vets: Do You Still Get Colds?

well this is directed more toward the people who have gotten colonics....have you noticed that you dont get colds anymore? i remember reading that a colonic is like a cure for the common cold as you will never get a cold again as long as you get them regularly (once or twice a year)....i was thinking of this as i recently got a cold (and the worst sore throat ever)...maybe colonics will get rid of all this mucus in me....

any thoughts?

Well before colon cleasning and liver flushing i was sick for two weeks straight with the flu, pink eye; you name it, I had it. I always use to wake up and my nose would be congested with mucos. After doing colon and liver cleanses i wake up and no mucos anymore. I havent had to blow my nose for a long time now.

I literally havn't had a stuffy nose or cold for many years. The last time I recall having a stuffy head was about 10 years ago. I recall because my husband and I went to the island of Bonaire to learn to scuba dive and we couldn't equalize our ears well because we both had very clogged heads, so we snorkeled instead. That was fine, because the whole island sits on a reef and we got to see everything you see when you dive, anyway. smile.gif Spotted and green moray eels, sea turtles, every kind of fish under the sun.

But I honestly don't recall getting sick since then. Keep in mind that I have been into holistic health for many years, probably 12-13.

I used to have to go to an ear, nose, and throat specialist to get saline injections up my nose so that my sinuses would stay clear... blink.gif I also had to use a cool mist humidifier all the time. I used to get the kind of bronchitis that would keep me in bed for a week at a time; this used to happen 2-3 times a year, and my sinsus problems were terrible.

Due to antibiotics abuse, I had NO immune system whatsoever, literally.

Now, I never get "the latest thing going around", at all, ever.

... So couldn't you just as well attribute your lack of colds to not being on antibiotics anymore? I don't see what filling a colon with water will do to your sinuses.

I haven't done any of these procedures and I haven't been sick for over 3 years(and that's saying something because I was in the dorms for 2 years and in the dorms when one person gets sick everyone does). Not even a minor cold.

I'm thinking it's because I've been building up my immune system for a few years now with better foods and certain suppliments.

The only time I feel bad(not sick just a temporary bad feeling) is when I eat fast food or a lot of sugar.

Big me-- I thought a virus had something to do with it. But I have confidence that you know more than the medical community.

Nico seems to be a bit angry and I'm not sure whether it's at doctors or himself. Maybe a combination of both. I know you've been proved wrong and shown to be ignorant but there's no reason to get so angry and use harsh language with me, Nic. Thinking viruses cause colds is ignorant? 40 years ago it was called revolutionary. Anyyyyway...

Colonics won't help colds; they're caused by airborn viruses and not some failure in the body.

Bullshitter? Nico -- have you heard of what a virus is? Do you know why doctors find them very difficult to cure? Amazing that doctors can stop infection by inventing antibiotics but some fail recognize them as important. If you had wisdom teeth removed, Nic, would you elect to use antibiotics or get a colonic to stave off a likely infection?

Mhm. Thought so.

A cold is caused by a virus. That's it. If a colonic does anything, it raises your immune system so it can fight off colds or prevent them better. Mucus is a symptom of the cold.

They've done countless studies and the amount of mucus before in the body had nothing to do with the frequency of catching a cold. Further it was found that the vast majority of adults will catch a cold when some of the known cold viruses are breathed in through the nose.

I understand why people turn to everything alternative(because modern science has a long way to go with cures, although this will change shortly once they start playing with the genetic code) but this is just not true. It doesn't matter how mucus free you are, if I have a cold and I sneeze in your face, chances are your going to get the cold.

wow, and all of these years i have thought that bacteria and viruses were real...i can't believe i actually trusted those damned doctors with all of their stupid years of experience treating disease! oh man, that means that the last time i had strep throat (a "bacterial" infection), and i went to my grandpa (who is also my doctor), and he prescribed penicillin to me (i'm sure my own grandpa was just working with the drug companies to screw his granddaughtor over), and i started feeling better with in like 4 hours, it must have been because somehow i did a liver cleanse with out knowing it.....'cause otherwise i couldn't have gotten better, right Nico?

What's depressing about Nico is that he has shone a light on everyone that believes in flushes that makes them look like fools. I believe some holistic medicine can probably make people feel better -- but I think anyone with at least elementary education can agree that he has his cause and effect in the wrong order.

PS: So Nico -- if you were getting dental surgery, would you take penicillin or try a liverflush to stop the likely culprit of infection?

When I stumbled onto this thread a minute ago, my immediate response was, "Holy shit!!"

Y'know, I'm a pretty open-minded gal in terms of alternative medicine, but not believing in viruses is just a *bit* over the top. (Read: Your credibility is shot to hell and it ain't coming back.) Seriously, where'd you ever get an idea like that?

I would also like to add that he is partly right about antibiotics(but totally wrong about colds). If you take any antibiotic for too long like some derms prescribe(for years) the bacteria usually become resistant because of their fast multiplying rate.

However the reason why an antibiotic will work when prescribed by a good doctor is that the dose given is just enough to kill the bacteria. If you don't finish the dose they could mutate and become resistant(just the same as if you were to take it for too long). I know lot's of people that don't finish up their precription and have a hell of a time trying to fend off the new bacteria.

AHEM. The reason why colonics and colon cleansing helps fight colds and viruses is because of several reasons. The lymph system is the first line of defense against infection and disease. It's primary job is to fight disease causing agents like bacteria, fungi, and viruses. 60-80% of the lymphatic system is located in the small intestine. This is called GALT (GUT-ASSOCIATED LYMPHOID TISSUE). It's task is to discriminate between viruses and bacteria passing through the bowel and nutritious components.

Plus, if you aren't regularly consuming hso's or a clinically proven and tested probiotic, you don't have the necessary (good) bacteria to stimulate t-helper cells. Th2 cells are also necessary and both th2 and t-helper cells can be stimulated by the proper microorgansims, which we used to get from the food we ate, but not anymore.

Bottom line. A clean colon and small intestine, with sufficient beneficial bacteria, can aid and assist the body's immune sytem to fight viruses and infections. My son is 11 years old, and has never been to the doctor his whole life to treat a cold, strep throat, fever, etc....He went once when he had broken out in hives when he had a slight cough and the doctor said that kids between the ages of 9 and 11 sometimes had histamine release when they were fighting a cold and it released through their skin. It never happened again, and we didn't treat it with anything. She gave me about 30 samples of Claritin, but we never used them because the hives just stopped after a day. My son has been on some form of acidolpholus and fish oil since he was 1. He gets one cold a year, usually in the winter.

I, on the other hand, was kept on antibiotics repeatedly in childhood, and it only increased as I got older, and my health suffered terribly for it. Now, I don't ever get sick, and havn't in about 10 years.
