Just came back from my first colonic. I could relate to many of the above comments. It did not hurt at all, chatted away with the therapist whilst she massaged my stomach. Not much came out after what was a promising start from the first flush but at the end of the session I was on the loo for a while. Basically I will try anything to relieve my symptoms of bloat gas and abdomen pain. So in for a penny in for a pound booked the second session already. According to the lovely therapist this is when I will start to see better results. Feeling quite light headed and very sleepy so going to have lie down after an eventful day.
The colon is an intricate part of the large intestine. Also called the large bowel, your large intestine connects the small intestine to the anus. The four major components of the large intestine are the cecum, colon, rectum, and anal canal. The colon is tubular shaped and connects the cecum to the rectum. It has several layers of muscle and fat with a mucous membrane as its inner lining. The “U” shaped colon subdivides into four sections—the ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon, and sigmoid colon. On average, the colon is around five feet long in adults and takes up the majority of space inside the abdominal cavity.
There is a hole in the chair/bed where the speculum and water come from. It is this same hole where all of the waste goes down. There is a view-tube beside you so that you can see everything that passes out of you. What surprised me was that after the initial “movement” (which was pretty standard) there was not that much that actually came out of me. No giant clumps the size of an orange, mostly just the clean water coming out exactly as it came in. After awhile, this made me anxious. Why wasn’t anything happening? Then, I had another smaller movement, but that was it for the length of the procedure. If anything else came out, it wasn’t visible. I had the expectation that something major would be removed and there would be a lot of movement over the course of the treatment. In retrospect, I think that having that expectation was detrimental. It caused me unnecessary anxiety during the process.
According to the label, the Super Colon Cleanse should be taken three times a day. As for the dose, take a maximum of 4 capsules, downing each pill with 10-12 oz. of water, juice or other beverage. Children 12 years old and under can take Super Colon Cleanse but limit the dose to 2 capsules, three times a day. Children over the age of 6 can also take the Super Colon Cleanse but the pills must be halved.
If constipation is a cause of your weight gain, then Bile Builder is a must-have to cleanse that toxic bile and get toxins flowing out through your colon again so you can lose the weight. Fat cells that are loaded with toxins won’t leave until the toxins have a way to be eliminated; these fat cells are a protective mechanism of your body so you don’t get sick from all the toxins circulating.
“I DID IT TO FEEL BETTER & IT WORKED! Before using UNI KEY’s Colon Cleanse…I felt horrible all the time. I knew I was eating all the wrong foods and I continued to do so. I had horrible migraines all the time. 3 weeks into the program I feel amazing! Absolutely amazing! I lost 10 lbs the first full week. I went from a size 22 to a 16 and I continue to lose weight…I wanted to do the cleanse not for weight loss, but to feel better. Now I feel fantastic!” – Bonita O.

There has been a great misconception among the public and most medical professionals about how often a normal healthy person should move their bowels. For years, doctors have thought that anywhere between one bowel movement a day and one a week was normal. (Unfortunately, that's probably the norm for the doctors who think that.) However, what we have learned in the holistic community is that it is normal, and necessary, to have one bowel movement a day for each major meal (as opposed to a snack) you ate the day before. If you eat three major meals, you should have three bowel movements the next day. If you don't, you're not alone.
Proponents of colon cleansing believe that toxins from your gastrointestinal tract can cause a variety of health problems, such as arthritis and high blood pressure. They believe that colon cleansing improves health by removing toxins, boosting your energy and enhancing your immune system. However, there's no evidence that colon cleansing produces these effects or is beneficial at all.
Most people need to drink more water. Water is the universal solvent, and an insufficient amount of it causes constipation and toxicity in the bowel and kidneys. Physical activity, fever, hot or dry climates and consumption of meat and salty foods all increase the need for water. The optimal amount varies widely, usually from six to 10 glasses a day. One useful formula is to drink half your weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 120 pounds (55 kilograms), drink 60 ounces (eight glasses/two litres) of water per day. This can include pure water, herb tea or diluted fruit juices. Caffeinated beverages do not count because they are dehydrating. The best time to drink a glass of water is between meals or 20 minutes or more before eating; sip only small amounts with a meal. An important rule is: When thirsty, drink water not pop or other beverages.
So after drinking 4 glasses of this stuff and nothing happening, i discovered from other areas on this web site that the kind of sea salt is extremely important. I was using iodized sea salt and took the time to juice everything else myself. Would have been nice if he specified this in the recipe. So, FYI, use UN-IODIZED organic sea salt like Pink Himalayan or grayish-colored Celtic sea salt, not the store bought white stuff, per Dr Axe.
I had a metal on metal hip implant 7 years ago and have high levels of cobalt and chromium in my blood and urine. I am presently been treated with IVIg, Octogam,for an autoimmue disease, CIDP, which was caused from the metal toxicity. Since this toxicity has been in my body for a number of years and has most likely entered cells, tissue and organs, are there any proven therapies to remove the cobalt and chromium from the body. Any feed back would be much appreciated.
We want to make it clear that a full body detox can be achieved solely through colon cleansing foods. Supplements are always optional. However, for workaholics and soccer moms, a supplement like Digestive Refresh provides the same benefits minus the preparation and hassle. All of Digestive Refresh’s ingredients are all-natural; you’re not ingesting anything that has no business being in your body.
A good source of soluble fiber to compensate for all of the fibreless processed foods, meat, and dairy that we eat is recommended. The three best sources of fiber are psyllium seed husks, freshly ground organic flaxseed meal (It should be freshly ground, or at the very least stabilized, so that it does not go rancid), and white chia seeds. One tablespoon of psyllium each day or 1.5 tablespoons of ground flax in the morning and evening with juice or 1-2 tablespoons of white chia seeds sprinkled on your food will keep you regular. Flax and chia also provide you with healthy omega-3 essential oils. And with flax, the sulfur-rich proteins and lignans present in the seeds work hand in hand with the omega-3 oils to reverse mutated cells and cancer in the body. But again, psyllium has the advantage of not fermenting in the colon.
I don't normally write reviews this quick, but this stuff is great! I take medication that causes severe constipation with very few successful BM's every few days. I've tried all of the "gentle" laxatives out there, milk of magnesia, fiber, etc. The store bought laxatives just dehydrate me and I feel like I'm dying in the bathroom. I get plenty of fiber in my diet but after a few days my body gets used to it and I'm back to square one. I took my first pill at bedtime last night (after reading prior comments saying one was more than enough) and I'm glad I didn't take two. I woke up around 7 with some mild cramps (which I expected because I'm very backed up) , but more the urge to go than anything. It's now 10am and I've had 3 very successful BM's and I already feel much more energetic and less bloated than I usually do. I know my body has a lot of nasty junk in it and I'm more than confident this product will fix that!
Let’s think about what this means. You have several pounds of retained waste in your colon if you aren’t eliminating properly. Normally poop is made up of 75 percent water and 25 percent solid waste. The solid waste consists of dead bacteria, indigestible food matter, cholesterol and other fats, cell debris, and inorganic material. It gets its color from bile pigments and broken down blood cells. Bacterial action is responsible for the smell.
Consider that a sluggish bowel can retain pounds of old toxic fecal matter (2--3 pounds is common, 10--20 pounds is not as unusual as you might think, and up to 65 pounds has actually been reported in exceptional cases). Often, the real cause behind sickness and disease is this retention and reabsorption of built-up toxic waste. Now, there are a number of skeptics such as Dr. Robert Carrol of the Skeptic's Dictionary who have a problem with the assertion that a sluggish bowel can retain old fecal matter. With great finality, Dr. Carrol proclaims, "The idea that our bowels are retaining pounds or tens of pounds of 'toxic and poisonous fecal matter' is false, false, false."8
Colonics do work to flush loose waste and sediment from rectum and large intestine, but they have several drawbacks. They can actually weaken bowel muscles over time. Colonics don't draw toxins from bowel pockets or from tissue. They do, however, flush all bacteria out--the good as well as the bad. Colonics can also disrupt natural pH (acid/alkaline) balance) in the large intestine. Finally, depending on the skill of your therapist, you run the risk (low) that some water retained in the equipment from another patient's previous use may be injected into your colon. Yech! Should You Clean Out Your Colon?
