Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction anybody dealt with it?

I know what it is, my brother had it so I know a lot about it, but I was just wondering how anyone out there dealt with it and stuff like that.

There is an old saying that "death begins in the colon." This is an oversimplification to be sure but more accurate than not. In fact, the road to health begins with intestinal cleansing and detoxification -- no matter what the disease or problem. Please read all about intestinal health at http://owen.curezone.com/healing/colondetox.html.

Sounds like a drastic diet change and bowel cleansing is in order. Start with a bowel cleanse. Psyllium and bentonite is one of the simplest and most effective ways to cleanse the digestive system.

Liquid bentonite should be used...or powdered bentonite should be hydrated to a semi-pourable yogurt consistency prior to using it. Mix 1 Tablespoon of liquid bentonite and 1 teaspoon of powdered psyllium (or 1 Tablespoon if using whole husk psyllium) with 8-10oz of water or diluted juice, shake and drink immediately. Follow this with another 8-10oz glass of water. This is in addition to daily water intake of half your body weight in ounces. Sufficient water is a key to success with this cleanse!

Psyllium and bentonite shakes should be taken at least one hour before or after taking any supplements, herbs, medications, etc.

*The shakes MUST be taken on an empty stomach....at least one hour away from food on either side. First thing in the morning, last thing at night are easy. Then one or 2 in the afternoon after lunch and before dinner - T*

Start with one shake a day and gradually increase as the body adjusts to the additional fiber. It may take 3-5 shakes a day and/or several weeks before you start passing mucoid plaque. Continue taking the shakes as long as mucoid plaque is being eliminated for up to 6 months. Additional cleanses may be necessary in order to thoroughly cleanse the digestive system and can be performed for a few months at a time. Each cleanse should be followed with the use of a good-quality probiotic to replace beneficial bacteria. Maintenance cleanses should be done 2-4 times per year.

If constipation should occur while doing this cleanse, 1) increase daily water intake, 2) use enemas or colonics to clear out released material and get things moving again, and 3) cut back on the shakes or stop the cleanse until the bowels are moving regularly again.

has anyone heard of chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction?

" Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP) is a rare disorder of gastrointestinal motility where coordinated contractions (peristalsis) in the intestinal tract become altered and inefficient. When this happens, nutritional requirements cannot be adequately met.

"Motility" is the term used to describe the contraction of muscles in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. To facilitate normal digestion and the absorption of nutrients, food content is propelled through the GI tract by synchronized or coordinated contractions in a process called "peristalsis." Peristalsis is dependent upon the coordination between the muscles, nerves, and hormones in the digestive tract.

In CIP the intestines react as if there is a true mechanical obstruction or blockage. However, when tests are performed, no physical evidence of blockage is found. There is no unique sign or symptom that allows a positive diagnosis of the pseudo-obstruction. "

there is more information in that link, too.  (+ info)

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)

Have you ever come across a baby with chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction who eats normally?

During my daughters well periods she eats very well and gains weight, then she will have a bad period, start blocking up, stop pooig by herself and lose weight and appetite. She is usually admitted to hospital vomitting bile and put on a drip.

If she continues to have dips they said she will have to have an illieostomy. Would you say this is the best course of action?

We are about to start a bowel cleanse regime, using gut friendly antibiotics which sit in the bowel rather than being absorbed.Could it be malabsorbtion? That doesnt solve the blockages though does it.

Shes had 2 biopsies, an edoscopy and laperotomy (sp!?), been tested for milk or lactose intolerace, and they all drew blanks.

Meds: Senokot, movicol, suppositories, enemas, rectal washouts and soon the new anti-bi's.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
hello thankyou for your input. they took bowel biopsies to rule out a nerve disorder. they saw nerve staining so ruled out hirschsprungs. after what you said im going to mention about diabeties at her next check, thanks x

Probiotics seems like a good place to start to me, I've known adults with that set of symptoms stemmed from having lost needed intestinal flora due to heavy antibiotic use. Even if they have her on digestive tract friendly antibiotics, a diet rich in things like yogurt at the same time might be worth considering.

I'm assuming they'd checked her for nervous disorders, it's possible I suppose the nerves in the bowel aren't sending the signals to contract on their own. If not, that might be important to look into at this point.

I know this sounds obvious, but is she dehydrated at all along with the more obvious symptoms? I mean, if she were diabetic say, and the doctors never tested her a1c levels and missed it, one of the side effects would be dehydration and constipation.

I'm sorry, those are my first thoughts.  (+ 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)

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)

Does having a colonic irrigation remove waste built up in the body over 48 hours?

I'm a little confused about colonic irrigations. They remove waste which has been sitting fermenting in the body for months and even years. The food we eat passes through our bodies within 48 hours so does it have to squeeze past all the fermented stuff to enable it to pass out of us or is the fermented cra* stored elsewhere?

Unfortunately the whole concept of detox is an urban myth. It is based solely on the irrational rants of constipated Edwardians who refused to eat vegetables as the considered them food only fit for the lower classes to consume. As a result they had little option but to spend their time taking laxatives and purgatives and giving themselves enemas. Provided you have not already done too much damage to your body, your liver and kidneys will deal with problem of removing toxins from your body, as that was what they were designed to do. After that, tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life and you can start afresh.  (+ info)
