Colonic Irrigation London
Scam: This is a health fraud in which the operator shows normal peristalsis or some other normal but unattractive thing about the lower bowel and tells you it's at the root of your ill-health. Folks feel better because of the sweet talk from the operator. If someone mentions "toxic bowel settlement" or anything similar, phone your local district attorney. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Have ulcerative colitis in sigmoid and ascending colon/cecum (just confirmed by colonoscopy). Will enema treat this (allergic to NSAIDs)?
Consider allergy ref: Thanks for your question. Depending on the NSAID allergy, sometimes it can be desensitized through introduction of small amounts initially, then gradual increase in dose under supervision by an allergy specialist. However, would discuss the side effects/risks/benefits with a specialist. ...Read more
Don't waste your $: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed this subject with a clear "no" answer to colonics. 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
No it can't: In fact is probably dangerous for subjects with ibs. Certainly dangerous for inflammatory bowel. Like mto furtherirritaqte irritable bowel syndrome. Single bowel cleanse is necessary before a colonoscopy, but can more easily be acheived by consuming GoLytely or %00 grams of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) the night before. There is no scientific evidence that colon hydrotherapy helps anyone other than $ 4 the therapist. ...Read more

Is this UC? Colonoscopy report: PR normal. Granular mucosa in the rectum & sigmoid (reduced vascular pattern). Subtle rectal & sigmoid inflammation.
35/m.Using sodium picosulfate from 5years.Have i got atonic colon due to overuse.Lactulose, fruits, prunes, fiber no good.Ct, colonoscopy, blood tests ok.
Add exercise also.: Atonic colon can be due to the absence of myenteric plexus or overuse of laxatives. If your colonoscopy and ct scan were normal, increased water intake, exercise and a high fiber diet will help. You had used lactulose, fruits, prunes, fiber, now add daily exercise, lots of water and stool softeners. I suppose you already see a gastroenterologist. Have you explored ibs as a possible cause ? ...Read more
No: There is no need for and no benefit of doing colon cleansings. Your colon cleanses itself by having bowel movements. There is no buildup of toxins anywhere in the colon. Colon cleansings are unnecessary and can be unhealthy. Stick with a high-fiber diet for good colon health! Good luck. ...Read more

I'm taking probiotics and prebiotics. Do enemas kill good bacteria in the intestines? (using water/chamomile/coffee for enema)
94yo /c obstruction d/t impaction. Not a surgical candidate. Receiving oral laxatives, enemas. Now with copious copremesis. Prognosis?
Redundant colon,candidate for elective colon resection. Linzess, miralax no help. Milk of mag or Sennokot 2-3x week helps.Use instead of surgery?
Chronic constipation: Most often, surgery is only considered as a last resort. For some people, having a bowel movement 2 to 3 times per week is normal. If you are able to achieve this using milk of magnesia, then I would not consider surgery at this time. It is always possible to have complications of surgery, and in your situation, it doesn't sound absolutely necessary. Fiber and hydration are key. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
