Any Studies Colon Colonics
No: No scientific studies have ever shown a benefit to colonics. In fact, what many people do not realize is that the colon lining gets nourished from free fatty acids in the stool.

What does ct scan results mean?
large amount of colonic stool
confirm moderate amount of free peritoneal air as well as air in the anterior wall and the retro peritoneum.
The study was with IV contrast only.
Prob not good.: The large amount of stool in the colon is not necessarily abnormal BUT, air in the abdomen means the bowel has had a leakage OR it is post surgery. cannot say in your particular case, but generally, if there isnt surgery, a burst bowel is often fatal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not necessary: The colon is a place where water and some nutrients are absorbed by one's body. Diarrhea occurs if one does not absorb the normal amount of water and nutrients from his poop (stool). If one has bowel problems, he can see his primary care doctor or a gastroenterologist. Colonic cleaning or irrigation is not natural, and can be dangerous if the person's chemical balance is distorted. ...Read more
Had a colonic (years also too)worried that shouldn't! feel fine but if damaged colon wall how soon would i know? Or how soon for any other damage?
In the future...: If i understand, a while ago you had a colonic, & now you're worried about it. I can reassure you that if you had any significant complications from it, you would've known right away. The more insidious issues from this worthless & dangerous procedure is what it can do to your normal bacterial flora. But if you have long since resumed a healthy, varied diet, that should be ok. Lesson learned. ...Read more
Based on falsehood: You don't need additional colonics because you didn't need any in 1st place. Based on faulty science & false premise that txoins need to be washed out of the body. Your intestines/digestive system naturally eliminates bacteria (bulk of stool is dead bacteria) and other waste materials. There is no scientific evidence that it does any good.Many are gullible like some believe world is flat. ...Read more
Does having an adenomatus colonic polyp in one's late 20s indicate a significantly increased chance of colon cancer later in life?
Not a proven fact: This is not proven and in fact it can be very dangerous due to risk of perforation and also risk of sipping out normal bacteria and causing superinfection with c diff. Just increase fiber intake to 30-40 gm a day and that will keep things moving and help with keeping all toxin levels under control. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What does patent end to side ileo colonic anastomosis in ascending colon mean? And characterized by healthy appearing mucosa! I had surgery in dec.
All is good: The doctor is telling you that when the terminal ileum (end of small bowel) was connected to the colon, the passage between then is open and working. He has not scarred down to a small hole causing a problem. The lining of each tube, ileum and colon, is covered with mucosa and the appearance is health, not that of inflammation and such. This is a good report by description. Congratulations ! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What causes very long, tortious colon with slow colonic transit, per sitzmarks (over half left in 5 days)? Does psyllium fiber cause redundant colon?
Yes: Fiber is healthy for general health and is helpful with colon function (i.e. Constipation). However, as with all good things there is another aspect. One side effect of a high fiber diet is enlargement and elongation of the colon. This can result in side effects like colon malrotation or torsion. Please know a low fiber diet leads to diverticula formation and the increased risk of diverticulitis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
