Avatar m tn With colonic hydrotherapy you see bile? I never heard that and I seriously doubt that it's bile you see. When the bile ducts are blocked the bile doesn't get into your gallbladder and from there doesn't get released into your intestines. Bile is what colors the normal stool. When there is a blockage of bile the stool can be pale or nearly white in color and the serum bilirubin becomes elevated. Bile is not white so whatever you are seeing I doubt very much that it's bile.
Avatar m tn About a week ago I posted a question about colon hydrotherapy but I received no response. I had this treatment done and since then I have gone more than usual. I am scheduled for another treatment but I would like to know if this is accepted by the medical field as a safe and effective method of colon cleansing. Or some comments from others who have been through this before. Please respond.
Avatar m tn The reason I ask is because I have battled with this problem for years as well. I have added fiber to my diet and gone as far as having a colonic( colon hydrotherapy), without significant results.Thank you for your response.

Avatar m tn I also had a few lymphathic drainage massages, and a colon hydrotherapy done which took away the swollen nodes under my arms, and reduced the swelling of the ones on my neck area. Before I went for the massages and the colon hydrotherapy, I experienced chronic fatigue, and after I did these procedures, my fatigue went away, and I have more energy now. The colon cleanse showed I had pin worms.
Avatar f tn Is there a reason why more people will not do the colon hydrotherapy detox? Wouldn't this make more people healthier?
Avatar f tn I am starting to wean myself off of my back brace and will begin hydrotherapy soon. My doctor wants to start me with hydrotherapy first and then progress to the ground physical therapy. Should I expect to feel sore after my therapy sessions? The hydrotherapy sounds like it will feel good, but since I've never had any kind of back trauma or surgery... I welcome any input from others. It's interesting to know that a change in atmosphere brings on an arthritic type of pain.
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 f tn Has anyone tried colon hydrotherapy ? I’ve done 3 treatments back to back already and it has decreased the symptoms but I don’t think it’s permanent. I started the treatment 3 days ago. It’s a machine that cleans out your colon for 45 min. It’s a good way to detox. I noticed after the first treatment I had less cravings for sugar. I pretty much forgot to eat for a whole day after the first treatment bc for some reason I didn’t feel hungry (I don’t recommend not eating).
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?
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.
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 I have also tried PT, traction, epidural cortisone shots, acupuncture, massage therapy, hydrotherapy. The later three give temporary relief but nothing long lasting. If I watch what I do my pain level is between 0 and 3, that is if I do nothing. If I am active the pain can be between 3 and 8 but may be time delayed by 12 to 24 hours. My Neurosurgeon wants me to consider a neurostimulator and I am looking for input for anyone that has one or has dealt with them.
Avatar n tn ice packs, heat pads, massage therapy, physiotherapy, yoga, meditation, hydrotherapy, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), spinal cord stimulation, radiofrequency ablation, other types of neurolytic blocks, aromatherapy, Reiki, acupressure and acupuncture, guided imagery and biofeedback. Usually a combined approach of a pain killer and a non-medication therapy helps give best pain relief. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Take care!
184342 tn?1282588750 Have you heard of having a colonic done? I know a woman here local that does them and swears by the benefits. I have tried some colon cleansers but I just don't like them, it seems to me that they don't work correctly? Maybe I am just hoping that it will clear out everything? lol.. I'm not sure, but if you ever find one I would be interested.
Avatar n tn m sure... such as deep warm penetrating hydrotherapy. I have extremely powerful jets in my hot tub designed for the feet. It's non obtrusive form of therapy that uses water pressure that will not cause bruising to the skin. I take care of my mom who is 83. Her legs tend to go purple if they don't get enough circulation. The hydrotherapy helps her immensely and I also use blue light!
Avatar n tn Not sure why you think you have colonic inertia because your doctor had a hard time performing a colonoscopy. Colonic inertia is extremely rare and indicates that the muscles of the colon do not function. It has nothing to do with the shape of the colon. You also do not develop this as a complication of surgery. I have colonic inertia and had my colon removed because of this 6 days ago. I am sitting in my hospital room as we speak.
Avatar n tn I am unsure if i have IBS but closest topic. I had a colonic irrigation last week to help reduce bloating, it wasnt serious bloating i just thought that i might acheive a flatter stomach. However immediately after the colonic irrigation and ever since i have experienced severe bloating, especially after a meal, i look pregnant and it feels hard with such pressure that it is very uncomfortable to move and i feel like i have to take deeper breaths.
