Q:

What is entailed in this procedure? i.e. will i feel anything or are patients given anesthetia? Is it recommended for someone 33 yrs old. I was under the impression that this procedure is done if you ar 50 and older.

A:

Hi, It sounds as if you are confusing what we do with a colonoscopy. Please do some research; perhaps read the other answers on this page and on our website innerfirehealth.com to understand the procedure and WebMD[.com for information on colonoscopy so you fully understand the difference between the two procedures. This is NOT a medical procedure; you are not under anesthesia, there are no medical personnel involved; we are not diagnosing or prescribing anything. This is an internal bath for your large intestine for the purposes of cleansing only.

Q:

Hi, I've never had a colon-cleanse before. What exactly can I expect/what is the step by step process? Thanks.

Shoshana M.  asked on  Jan 12, 2012

A:

You will wear a full-length cotton gown and lie on your left start. The clinician inserts a sterile cannula into the rectum. Attached to the instrument are two tubes: one allows body-temperature water into the colon and one allows outflow of water and waste. When the clinician closes the outflow tube, the instrument directs the water into the body. When you feel as if you have to eliminate, the clinician opens the outflow tube and the water and waste flow out through the outflow tube. It is a "closed system" which means all waste flows through tubing and directly into the building's main plumbing waste line. Several minutes into the procedure, the clinician will have you change position and lie on your back. The clinician may do gentle abdominal massage to facilitate the movement of trapped gas or waste while you are on your back until all five feet of large intestine have discharged waste at which point they will have you return to your left side. If things go as they should, you will then visit the rest room and expel anything still remaining in the colon, which is often little or nothing. You should leave our office feeling lighter, cleaner, clearer and free to walk the streets without the fear of needing a restroom. Often the client has no bowel movement the following day as they have eaten lightly the day before and day of the session and the colon is much clearer afterward so it may take a day for bowel activity to resume normal daily movement.

Q:

will the procedure make me feel nauseous?

Florence R.  asked on  Jan 12, 2012

A:

I don't know. It's not the norm but it has been known to happen while someone is on the table and I suspect happens when the gall bladder is congested. Feel free to call our office and ask to speak to Diane. Be sure to let them know I suggested you call!

Q:

I have never had a colon cleanse before and wonder if people experience any side effects after the treatment.

Amy K.  asked on  Jan 11, 2012

A:

Hi Amy, And the answer is no...we're clearing the large intestine of waste so the only "side effect" is often a lighter, cleaner, clearer feeling! Of course, one session in an of itself is like going to the gym once and expecting to come out with sculpted abs. To properly detoxify the body we recommend consulting with our clinicians or practice leader as a follow-up to your session. Hope that helps!

Q:

Are restorative post colonic implants offered?

Robert C.  asked on  Jan 11, 2012

A:

Hi, And thanks for your question. For an additional $5 we offer implants. Typically we use coffee and/or chlorophyll. If you prefer to use something else that you have used in the past, we invite you to bring it with you at no extra charge. Hope that helps! INNER FIRE
