I just experienced my first colonic.. Let’s just say my experience was almost as you described except towards the end.. I started cramping and had the extreme urge to push.. I had to request for the technician to stop the process. . And ran like holy hell bathroom. . During my purge. . I prayed to porcelain gods to see me thru. And vowed never again to do this.. 10 flushes later and gum.. I vacated the bathroom to hear the hysterical laughter of my friends. . Apparently I prayed very loud. After another 5 minutes I started to feel better. Enduring an hour train ride home (why did I pick a center in Washington heights.) Upon reaching home, I called the center to book another appointment! ! I definitely am going back.. And yes I feel 10 pounds lighter!
It sounds harmless enough. You lie comfortably on a table as warm, filtered water gets pumped into your colon through a disposable rectal tube. For about 45 minutes, the water works to soften up any waste material and expel it from the body. Many believe that a clean colon can lead to a healthier life and reduce the chances of many diseases. Stars are doing it to slim down right before a big premiere. But does it really work? The jury is split.
Baking soda is also known as sodium bicarbonate. Its basic nature helps in balancing the pH of your stomach. Baking soda is one of the most commonly used home remedies to treat indigestion due to its laxative nature (28). When the baking soda solution enters the gut, it causes water to be pulled into the intestines by a process called osmosis. This softens the stool and increases its volume, thereby helping in cleansing your colon easily.
The bottom line is that it is unlikely the senna was responsible, and on top of that, I am not advocating anything close to the amount of senna consumed when drinking multiple cups of dieter's tea. In the colon corrective we're now talking about, senna, along with the aloe and cascara sagrada, are merely colon cleansing stimulants for proper colon function. No one has ever suffered a problem from them when used in that regard.

A gut cleanse is essentially eating a clean diet of unprocessed, unrefined gut-friendly foods as well as some gut-friendly supplements. For more serious health complaints, commit to a four-to six-week cleanse, for general wellness opt for two weeks. If you currently eating a high-sugar, low-vegetable diet, you may experience fatigue, a change in bowel motions, mental fogginess and skin eruptions. These symptoms tend to subside after three to five days.

I have a 14 year old (not overweight) that is not eating right, a lot of sugar, carbs, sodas and has shown low thyroid in blood tests along some liver problems. She is ADHD, but constantly complains from lack of energy, reflux and constantly hungry! Her cholesterol is high as so are her tryglycerios. She used to be interested in a lot of sports an had lots of energy.  Now she feels tired and gets out of breath when she does sports,she has not gotten her period yet. I am very worried about her liver, thyroid and cholesterol and tryclycerius! Please try to recommend a program (that a 14 year old would be willing to follow!) to get her back to health!! Help!!
To summarize: digestive disorders (including disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, as well as the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas) were responsible for over 50 million physician visits back in 1985--and more hospitalizations than any other category of medical problem in the United States 5, 6 and almost double that today. The total cost to the American public for all aspects of digestive disease is well over $100 billion per year.7 The most prevalent digestive diseases include:
These “Frankenfoods” are loaded with artificial ingredients that have names you can’t even pronounce. And they’re missing one key ingredient – fiber. So they sit in your gut for days or even weeks, fermenting and rotting instead of digesting and providing nutrients. Constipation, inflammation, nutrient deficiencies, bloating and weight gain are just some of the results.
The average American eats about 1,996 pounds of food a year, or about 5 ½ pounds a day -- totaling about 2700 calories (and growing). Theoretically, about 2/3 of that consists of liquids, water, and "fuel" content that you urinate, sweat out, or burn up. But that still leaves about 2 pounds of solid waste per day that must pass out through your bowel. If that seems high to you, then consider that just one Burrito Ultimo® at Baja Fresh, a typical fast food lunch item, weighs about 480 g, or just over a pound -- and there isn't a lot of water in it. At Sizzler, the steaks alone run 8-14 ounces, exclusive of any sides. So, bottom line, we have 2 pounds of fecal matter -- give or take -- produced every day in the average American. So what?
These tiny power seeds are the perfect gut cleansers. When soaked in water for a few minutes they plump up and turn into a jello-like substance. They help flush out the stomach and especially great for those prone to constipation. They also contain anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids which your body will thank you for! You can simply add a spoon of chia seeds to a glass of water and drink it down, or make a pudding using nut milk and some cacao, or add it to your smoothies, morning porridge or sprinkle them on salads!
Hi ……. I hope you can help me. I usually mix pink salt with ginger and lemon juice together as I have heard its really good for rosacea.I drink this mixture just before lunch and dinner but I am concerned about the quantity of each ingredient because it may be too strong. I have was diagnose with acne rosacea 4 years ago and I am now 53 years old. Could you please tell me how much of each ingredient I should be using,how much I should consume each time I take it and is it true that it’s beneficial for rosacea. I would really appreciate a reply .Thank you.
In the colon, water is squeezed out and absorbed from food remnants, leaving behind a mixture of non-digestible fibre, bacteria, bile acids and cells that have been scraped off the intestinal wall. If bowel transit time is too slow, bacteria and fungi proliferate and toxins are reabsorbed. A healthy colon eliminates waste within six to 18 hours after every meal this means having two or three bowel movements a day.

Fruits and berries provide water, fiber, and antioxidants. Apples, bananas, and strawberries are a great place to start, and you may already have them at home. Each of these can provide a significant portion of your daily fiber needs. Citrus fruits like oranges and lemons are also a great digestive aid and give you a vitamin C boost. Dried fruits like prunes and cranberries can also be beneficial for your colon and act as natural laxatives.

Limit fruits to lo glycemic 3 times a week, good food but too much natural sugar, no processed foods, fresh veg. and clean protein.

Flaxseeds are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants. The daily consumption of flaxseeds is a sure shot way to cleanse your colon due to the combined laxative effect of its compounds. While the omega-3s are wonderful for your overall health, the antioxidants and fiber in flaxseeds can help increase your bowel movements to get rid of all the toxins from your body (21), (22), (23).
Your intestinal tract is the source of all nutrient access to your body. If it isn't working properly, you have two major problems. First, you have a hard time digesting food--breaking it down sufficiently so that your body can use it. And then, even if you can digest it properly, if the intestinal wall is covered with hardened mucous and/or colonies of hostile bacteria, you'll end up absorbing only a fraction of the nutritional value of the food you eat.
