Colonic Irrigation Questions You’re Too Shy to Ask
So you’ve been curious about colonic irrigation but you have questions you are too embarrassed to ask your friends who tried. We have gathered answers to your curious questions so you can decide whether a colonic cleanse is for you. But first, let us define colonic irrigation.
What is colonic irrigation?
Colonic irrigation or a colonic cleanse is typically used to prepare patients going through medical procedures such as colonoscopy. Nevertheless, alternative medicine practitioners use colon cleansing to detoxify the colon. A colonic fills the colon gently with warm sterile filtered water through a small sterile tube inserted into the anus.
The flushed out water carries the waste material built up in the colon, waste matter, and toxins. A qualified hygienist will perform the procedure and will repeat the process as they see fit to remove the stool and toxins in the colon. In some situations, small amounts of liquid are left inside the colon for a short period before elimination for best results.
Is it safe?
Colonic hydrotherapy is a safe and effective method so long as you receive the treatment from a certified clinic. At Colonic care, we have a certified hygienist that performs the procedure using cutting-edge equipment. We look after your best interest and make sure you are comfortable and feel safe during the entire procedure. We can discuss your health concerns prior to your treatment to ensure colonic cleanse is for you.
Is the tube big? And how deep does it go?
The tube is thin and it’s inserted less than an inch inside the anus. You can insert the tube yourself and most people report that they don’t feel it at all.
Is there special water used in the treatment?
Colonic Care uses alkaline water that passes through a nozzle inserted into your rectum. The water alternating between warm and cool is used to flush the colon gently to remove the toxins and old waste materials that are encrusted around the colon.
Is colon hydrotherapy different from enemas?
Enemas are good in cleaning the rectal areas of the colon that reaches up to about 1 foot. However, sessions of colonic cleanse can clean out and get rid of impacted waste materials from the entire colon that is 5 feet long. More so, colon hydrotherapy offers tons of health benefits besides detoxification. It can reshape the colon muscles back to their original state, improve fertility, boosts weight loss, improve mood, provide clarity and reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases.
Does it hurt?
A colonic cleanse doesn’t hurt. However, you may experience mild side effects such as cramping, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain. You must ensure that the facility or clinic that offers a colonic cleanse is reliable and uses FDA-approved equipment.
What if I’m gonna make a mess?
No mess at all. Our bed is ergonomically designed to take care of everything for a clean and comfortable colon cleanse experience. You don’t need to concern yourself with noise too as we got things covered for a comfortable procedure.
When will I have my next bowel movement?
Bowel movements are unique for everyone. You may go the day after the procedure or a few days after a colonic. You’ve just removed a large amount of waste and it may take time before the colon muscles are strong enough to digest and expel foods out of your system.
Should I look at what goes out?
There’s a viewing tube attached to the machine so you can check what is coming out from your gut. However, you don’t have to look at it if you don’t want to. We can always put something to distract your mind away from the procedure.
How many sessions should I have?
We assess your needs and suggest individual treatment plans best suited to your conditions and goals.
We accumulate toxins from the foods we consume and the stress that we encounter. Our bodies can suffer from these toxins. Hence, our bowels secrete a glyco-protein substance that lines the entire intestinal wall to protect us from these toxins. However, this makes it hard for our bodies to absorb nutrients and vitamins. Moreso, toxins contaminate the blood and spreads throughout major organs and muscles. The liver is left to process the toxic blood, potentially making your body sluggish and weak. A colonic cleanse gets rid of accumulated toxins in your body to protect your organs and yourself from chronic diseases. Do you still have more questions?
