Why do Colonic Centers need a credit card to hold your appointment?


I want to get a colonic, but most of the colonic centers in New York City want a credit card number to hold my appointment. I don't like giving that personal information out. Is this true for all colonic centers or just the ones who are scams?
----------

It's possible that some people chicken out and cancel their appointments and they want to ensure that they get paid for holding an appointment whether you come or don't. I know that it's common practice for some fringe medical places like chiropractors to require a 24 hr.-plus notice for cancellations and if you fail to do that, they make you pay. On "Seinfeld", George ran into that situation with a physical therapist. He was miffed that he had to pay.  (+ info)

How much weight can you lose from doing colonic irrigations sessions?


I am planning on doing 5 colonic irriagations in the next two weeks and i was wondering how much weight can a person usaully lose or what some of you have lost after doing this procedure?

Does that weight come back on easily or is it off for good as long as you exercise and eat healthy?

is it painful? any tips????
----------

The weight you lose depends on the amount of crud in your bowels. That is determined by the amount of unprocessed food and other stuff you have consumed. Some people can lose 30lbs where as other people lose little to no weight. In lieu of the irrigation you can take a good fiber supplement like psyllium husks and drink a warm lemon water cayenne pepper drink in the morning and night over a period of a month you will clean out your system and promote some regularity as well.

If you have a lot of crud in there and it comes out with irrigation, chances are you have a poor diet. If you continue with the same habits the same weight will come back.

There are a lot of toxins in there and the release of them can cause moodiness and headaches. Pain can be subject to the user but don't shove anything huge up the rectum and that will aid in that pain.
Good Luck  (+ info)

Colonic irrigation. Does one session work or do you have to go back for a follow up?


I have a herd of dead cattle aching to rampage out of my intestines and a friend said that colonic irrigation is great, but I can only deal with doing it once. Any advice?
----------

more fiber and acidophilus (can be found in yogurt or take supplements) acidophilus replaces "friendly bacteria" in your intestines, helps keep you clean and regular.........  (+ info)

What do polyps in your stomach and colon mean?


I have 3 polyps in my stomach and one in my colon that is enveloped by something unidentifiable per my doctor. All have been biopsied and sent off but I have to wait more than 2 months to see my doctor again. I'm worried about this long wait and it being cancer.
----------

They are little growths, like pouches, but they are not diverticulitis. They are fairly common, and can not be avoided, except by a vigorous fiber intake. They can be snipped out using a scope with camera, and scissors.  (+ info)

Marcee, there is several places in the Chicago area to get this done, just look in your yellow pages under Colonic Irrigation, as for the cost, I don't know but here in Ca it's about $75.

Does anyone know if you can have colonic irrigation with a slightly prolasped bowel?


I'm in constant pain with constipation and back ache's, nothing is working, the hospital keep teeling me to change my diet and eat more fibre but this doesn't work. I've heard colonic irrigation releives constipation and back ache's but am not sure it is safe with my condition.
----------

It always takes me a while to answer questions like this as there is a delay while I stop laughing and my eyes stop streaming so that I am able to type.

It never ceases to amaze me what these charlatans can pursued people to do and how [people are so gullible they can't get the money out of their pockets fast enough to pay for these quack remedies.

The British Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has upheld a complaint against the Body Detox Clinic and ordered the clinic to stop claiming that its colonic irrigation and "detoxification" programs can help people with constipation. diarrhea. bloating. hemorrhoids. irritable bowel syndrome colitis, flatulence, bad breath, body odor, headaches, fatigue, eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, acne, joint pain, premenstrual tension and water retention. The clinic attempted to justify its claims by citing the writings of Bernard Jensen (a deceased American chiropractor noted for his promotion of iridology) and Michael Gershon, another American who it said had postulated that the intestine contains a "second brain." However, as noted below, the ASA concluded that except possibly for relief of occasional constipation, the clinic had "provided only anecdotal evidence . . . and had not been able to support those claims with robust clinical evidence."

In fact the whole concept of detox, which was invented by constipated Edwardians who refused to eat vegetables as they were lower class foods, is bunkum  (+ info)
