Avatar m tn Hi, I have been suffering from chronic constipation for many years, the past 17 being the worse. I am a Nutritionist and I have had many colonics (a.k.a colon hydrotherapy). There are different types of colonics. If you can, try not to use the type where they fill you up with water and then you have to bare down and push to get the water and stool out of you. Your in a slightly squatting position on the table if I remember correctly. The best kind is the "Gravity method.
Avatar f tn I am 50 years old and my surgeons which i have seen 2 and my family doctor say i have a classic case of colonic inertia. They want to do sugery in August. They will remove 80% of my colon. I have a slow moving digestive system and muscles that dobn't work in my colon. Any-one have anything similar. It is a life ultering treatment. I just want to feel normal again. Not bloat up every time I eat, and have tons of gas all the time.

The best method is to use FAM (fertility awareness method) You chart your basal body temperature and monitor other signs such as cramps, bloating, cervical mucus, breast tenderness etc. When charting your BBT, once you have a definate spike in your temperature, that tells you for a fact that you have indeed ovulated. Ovulation Predictor Kits only tell you that you are LIKELY to ovulate in the next 24 hours.

9644933 tn?1407768890 t quite right with her, but I could not put my finger on it as signs would come and go (inapetance, loose stools, laziness). At that time all of her work was normal aside from an elevated ALT of 235. Her specific gravity at this time was 1.050 (first morning urine, free catch). Two weeks later (May 31st) I was back in the office as she was vomiting, refused to eat, lose weight, stools were still loose and she would tremble. At this point blood work showed ALP of 202, TBIL of 11 and ALT of 1392.
Avatar n tn You can put a pillow or two under your butt to elevate it so that gravity can help hold the semen inside.
Avatar n tn My doctor said the only thing that works is walking and sex. Walking will bring baby down with gravity which will help you dilate and sperm will help soften cervix. Orgasm will help bring on contractions. She said under no circumstances try castor oil (popular method on these forums) because it can make you have diarrhea and make baby poo inside which can be fatal in worst case.
Avatar f tn Hi, Colonic inertia is a condition in which the nerves and/or muscles of the colon do not work normally. As a result, the contents of the colon are not propelled through the colon normally. The cause of colonic inertia is unclear. In some cases, the muscles or nerves of the colon are diseased. Colonic inertia also may be the result of the chronic use of stimulant laxatives .Please consult a neurologist for the review of the EMG results and get a nerve conduction study done .
Avatar n tn There is no clear cut association between hysterectomy and colonic inertia. Some of the causes of colonic inertia include inadequate water intake, inadequate fiber, lack of physical activity, increased stress, hypothyroidism, eating large amounts of dairy products, irritable bowel syndrome, neurological diseases and depression. Avoiding dairy products, warm liquids, fruits and vegetables and drnking plenty of water helps.
Avatar m tn Again so sorry to hear about your wife there are more aggressive methods to help her with this HE episode.

Avatar f tn I have been told that regular colonic hydration is good for cleaning out the diverticula in a person with diverticulosis. How accurate is that? I have been wanting to go to a CCT, but was worried about it. Has anyone out there tried it? What was it like, and did it work?
5153051 tn?1364441441 I am a 28 year old female who has never been pregnant, but who has had a long battle with constipation. After having some real problems with constipation in early February, I have been diagnosed with pelvic organ prolapse including a moderately large rectocele and enterocele seen during defecography. The enterocele actually causes the colon/rectum to collapse, obstructing complete defecation.
Avatar n tn Hello first I apologize if my English is not good I just moved in USA. I have had problems with constipation since I can remember my self.
Avatar f tn hi, i have resently been diagnosed with colonic inertia. i had the sitz mark test and my colon still had all of rings in at the end of the test. now my gastro is sending me to a colonectomy surgeon this thursday. my biggest fear is i do not want to have a colostomy. i have had a constipation problem all my life but its getting worse. my gastro dr. told me the older i get the worse this is going to get. i need help from anyone who is going through this and what i can expect.
Avatar m tn Let me know the location on that 1. PLEASE BEWARE OF THE LITHOTRIPOSY THIS IS THE WOST METHOD BUT SOMETIMES THE ONLY METHOD FOR CERTAIN SONES. You must be in pain with the 5mm??? DRINK DRINK DRINK all the water you can. If you can stand on your head a the gravity will greatly help the stones move along. you need 24 hour urines and an analiyzed stone to find the reason you are making the stone thats top priority. Than you may be a canadate for meds. to prevent more stones from forming.
Avatar f tn Delivering on your back is convenient for whoever is catching but it closes your pelvis some. It is better if you can get upright and gravity helps. It may seem strange because you so many labors with women on their back. In unmedicated natural births women tend to birth in a squat or on all fours.
Avatar n tn Someone suggested that I go in for a colonic cleansing procedure. What are your thoughts about this??? At this point, I'm about ready to do anything. I feel like every-thing is backed up into my stomach. Miserable most of the time.
