Q:

What are these low risks? Please provide a list. Please provide a step by step description of the procedure What are the dimensions of the speculum that she inserts and how far is it inserted? At what rate of speed is the water pumped in? (i.e. gallons per minute) Since very little discomfort is a relative opinion, what will you provide as pain killer? In what ways does this procedure compare to a colonoscopy..... How is it similar and how is it different, please list details? What if you don't know if you have the medical conditions you so briefly mentioned? If it is determined that these unknown medical conditions are present in any degree, will she not complete the procedure and refund all the money?

A:

The risks are potential slight irritation at the point of where the speculum is inserted. (it is only inserted 1.5-2 inches) Once its inserted your body relaxes, you are covered with sheets and a blanket and laying on a soft massage table. The water is slowly run in at low pressure...Ounces a minute (not gallons)... No one ever needs a pain killer. Depending on how constipated you are, you may feel slight pressure from time to time, as fecal matter is released through the tube and out the sewer system. It is nothing like a colonoscopy - this is a hydrating, stimulating, detoxifying treatment. A colonoscopy is a diagnostic procedure. If you have Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns disease, or severe hemorrhoids don't purchase this. If you have blood or severe mucus in your stool, get a diagnosis before coming in. I hope this helps.

Q:

Are there risks with colon cleansing?

Jill P.  asked on  Oct 6, 2011

A:

There are low risks of using low pressure water for hydrating and cleansing your large intestine. There is always caution in people with Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns disease and other inflammatory bowel conditions. I am a doctor and Tara (the colon hydrotherapist) always consults with me with certain patients. She is very skilled and knows when not to give a treatment. Hope this helps. Sincerely, Dr Morse

Q:

HIya! I saw Tara Alder at Alder Brooke Healing Arts about 4 years ago. Would I be considered a new patient? I'd like to buy one for myself and one for my sister. Thanks in advance! Laura =)

A:

Thank you for your inquiry. We would treat you again like a new patient since we are a medical facility and Tara is working here. We look forward to meeting you. Sincerely, Dr Morse

Q:

Is this for returning customers only? ($108 is what your returning rate is.) If not, how would this differ from your usual $127. initial visit and treatment? Thanks

janice p.  asked on  Oct 6, 2011

A:

This is for new customers mostly. If you haven't seen Tara in over 4 years we encourage you to come back! Tara is currently working now at Absolute Health Medical Center. The fees for returning patients are $100. New visits here are $108.

Q:

Does this procedure hurt or cause discomfort? Also, the narrative says some medical clearances apply (or something to that effect) What does that mean?

Janet C.  asked on  Oct 6, 2011

A:

There is very little discomfort, and it is just at the beginning. She is very gentle and has been doing it for years.

A:

For your second question, the only medical issues where they might not do the procedure are: irritable bowel disease, Crohn's disease, and really bad external hemorrhoids.
