Colonic Irrigation Bloating
I have had constipation. My stomach bloats almost everytime I eat. I have had good colonic irrigations. But bloating still persists. ?
How long?: I don't know how long you have been having symptoms but certainly taking Clindamycin for your cellulitis could have this side effect. Even if it has been going on longer and you have dealt with the constipation, you could still have irritable bowel syndrome in which the muscles lining the large intestine do not contract and relax in a coordinated manner. Treatment is available; discuss with doc. ...Read more
Does colonic irrigation aid slimming, help detoxify the body and banishes bloating? Is there another method that genuinely works?
If medic. indicated: Only to relieve severe constipation or as part of a preoperative bowel preparation. Colonic irrigation as part of a general health regime does nothing for you other than give the knowledge that your large bowel is empty. Some rare individuals have wierd satisfaction from having their colon and rectum filled with fluid which then can then expell. No scientific evidence of beneficial effect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Colonic hydrotherapy purports to detoxify and cleanse the colon, helping with constipation, etc. Some colonic advertisements also claim to cleanse "negative emotions" such as anger and depression from the body. In my experience though, these emotions are not housed in the colon alone. Deeper, whole-person work is needed for this. ...Read more
Nothing!: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed this subject with a clear "no" answer to your question.There is virtually no value to colon flushes, cleansers, enemas, irrigation machines when the technique is accomplished to "detox" or eliminate "accumulated waste." the "no" response also applies to liver detoxes! there are few real health benefits, but sigificant unjustified risk. Don't "cleanse". ...Read more

Can you let me know is it recommended to have a colonic irrigation while battling with diverticulitis?
No, probably not: A good idea. While you have active diverticulitis, it is important to rest the area while the infection heals. If you apply any excess pressure, as with irrigation, the inflamed area can perforate into the peritoneal cavity and cause fecal peritonitis. That goes for enemas too. ...Read more
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 is more suitable for chronic constipation, colonoscopy or colonic irrigation/colon cleansing? Which is more useful for eliminating constipation?
None of the above!: If you want to eliminate constipation, you should leave your colon alone and stop sticking tubes and other foreign liquids into it. You need to do 3 things which will help: eat well and drink plenty of liquids like water to stay well hyderated;. Make sure your food has enough fiber which comes from fruits, salads vegetables and grains; each meal should have these items that will give bulk to stool. ...Read more
Severe bloating sometimes with constipation/less diahhorea. I've just had a colonic which didn't help nor has a change in diet. Nothing seems to work.?
What is the best colon cleanser on the market? I have a severe bLoating, & constipation. I need something targeting a total cleanse. Thank you!
Be careful: as products marketed as colon clenses have no proven benefit and are nothing other than laxatives. I don't know what products you are looking at but there is no way to "cleanse " the colon to rid you of your issues. If anything you will have only temporary relief. Consider discussion with your doctor or referral to a GI doctor ...Read more
I have exessive bloating and pain in my left colon. I had scoliosis surgery 6 years ago. Since then I am having terrible pain in my colon.
Its unlikely that it: Is from the scoliosis surgery and been going on for last 6 years. I am sure you have had it checked by a gen surgeon as well as the spine surgeon. Sometimes its helpful to be rechecked and reinvestigated to reach a diagnosis. I don't think you have any other option. Maybe a colonoscopic exam might be helpful. Good luck. ...Read more
