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)

Is it normal to bleed after a colonic hydrotheraphy session?

I just had my first colonic a few hours ago and when I went to the bathroom afterwards, blood came out on it's own. Is this normal? If not, why is this happening?

Where can I get a colonic cleansing in Chicago or surrounding area?

Where is the best place to get a colonic cleansing in Chicago or surrounding area. Preferably on the southside of Chicago. How much does it cost???

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. You can get similar results of a colonic by taking a series of enemas at home using different positions.  (+ info)

Is pneumonis a functional disease caused by parasitic worms?

Yes it can be.

" Parasitic pneumonia is being increasingly reported from many parts of the world due to globalization and travel across the continents. This review outlines the recent developments in the diagnosis and management of parasitic pneumonias."

These are the principal parasitic pneumonia agents.

"# Pulmonary Amoebiasis
# Pulmonary Leishmaniasis
# Pulmonary Malaria
# Pulmonary Hydatid Disease
# Tropical Pulmonary Eosinophilia
# Pulmonary Dirofilariasis"

Here is your reference for the diagnosis and management of each of them.



"Most cases of simple pulmonary eosinophilia are due to an allergic reaction, either from a drug, such as sulfonamide, or infection from a fungus or parasite, including Ascaris lumbricoides."


"Visceral larva migrans is caused by worms (parasites) that infect the intestines of dogs and cats. The dog parasite is called Toxocara canis and the cat parasite is called Toxocara cati. Eggs produced by the worms are left in the feces of the animals."

male filarial worm in the genus Dirofilaria.

Dirofilaria tenuis commonly infects raccoons, especially in the Southeastern United States, and zoonotic transmission can occur when mosquitoes feed on raccoons and subsequently on humans; human infection is considered accidental. Most cases in the United States of zoonotic Dirofilaria infections occurring in the subcutaneous tissues and eyes are caused by D. tenuis; D. immitis causes lung lesions.



Here in the USA this is primarily a problem of AIDS patients but may also take place patients who's immune system is compromised (eg. on corticosteroids)-

Parasitic pneumonia.

Abstract: With few exceptions, the parasitic pneumonias most commonly encountered in the Western Hemisphere are diseases of compromised hosts; patients with AIDS are at particular risk.

Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia occurs eventually in 80% of AIDS patients; bronchoalveolar lavage is quite sensitive in establishing this diagnosis.

Toxoplasma gondii pneumonia, seen most often in the patient with AIDS, is characterized by multisystem involvement.

Strongyloides stercoralis infection is endemic in the Southeastern United States. Pulmonary strongyloidiasis is seen in patients receiving glucocorticoids or chemotherapy, and in patients with AIDS or other causes of T cell dysfunction. Larvae may be seen on Gram's stains or wet mounts of sputum.

Ascaris and hookworm infections may present with pulmonary infiltrates and eosinophilia during the larval migration phase.

Dirofilaria, Paragonimus, and Entamoeba histolytica involvement of the lung are less common and require a good epidemiologic history and clinical suspicion for diagnosis. "

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)

How long to get functional after a devastating breakup?

My sister has been absolutely non-functional. She has been drinking every day and has tried a psychiatrist but it didn't help. It's been two and a half weeks now. If you have been through a breakup and were literally almost suicidal, how long did it take you to get the initial non-functional part over with? She is 48 and has had a string of horrible people in her life.

To get functional again, it can take a few months in extreme cases. To get to complete healment, a lot longer.

But this has more to do with her and why she is attracted to the sort of people she is. She has much soul searching to do.

I had an extremely painful breakup once, and it took me 2 months to get functional. It took a further 8 months to get over it.  (+ info)

Is it possible to gain weight from a colonic?

I just had one and I actually weigh more than I did this morning. My stomach is also more bloated. Is this normal and will it all have gone down by tomorrow morning or is this a case of the colonic not being perfermed correctly?

I would imagine your bloating would lessen after your next bowel movement, but I don't know, I've never had one. Maybe call the place where you got it and ask if that's normal?  (+ info)

Can I do a colonic at home using a douche?

I know its gross, but I took Fleet Laxative last night, and I still feel clogged up. I know when you get a colonic, the tool used looks like the end of a small douche. Could I use a small douche, and give myself a colonic at home?

I have a very old medical book here dating back to 1800! They show graphic pictures of colonic irrigation, using a long rubber tube which is inserted good four feet up the anus. That is attached to a glass bottle of water, held 3 feet up on a bottle stand and the Patient is sideways. So the height causes the water to run down the tube into you know where and the pressure inside you know where causes the feces to run out all over the place! A douche will not hold the right amount of liquid and unlike the colonic irrigation places, you have no vacuum system. Best of Luck  (+ info)
