After a visit to Canada a few years ago, I had thought about having a colonic irrigation, especially after over indulging in copious amounts of meat. Recently I had been feeling very bloated and thought I would look into it. After a Google search, I found one in Ulverston and made an appointment to visit.
Jane was lovely and is an ex nurse with years of colonic experience, so felt instantly at ease. You may wonder what is a colonic? The Colon, bowel or large intestine is situated in the abdomen, and forms the last part of the digestive tract. It is 5ft in length and 2 and half inches in diameter- that’s a lot of waste! It is responsible for eliminating food and other body wastes, as well as protecting from infection and disease.
The colonic itself takes about 45 minutes during which time warm purified water will be gently introduced via the rectum to stimulate the release of stored matter and gas. The treatment involves you lying on your side and during the treatment, your modesty is preserved at all times with a blanket.
The number of treatments required always depends upon your individual case and prevailing conditions. Often the waste is so hard and compact in the colon that it may take a series of colonics to sufficiently soften and loosen this accumulated faecal waste. Therefore the number required may vary from only one treatment to a number spread out over a period of time, after which preventative or maintenance treatment may be continued.
Is it safe? Yes! The water is introduced at a low gravitational pressure, so there is no danger of bowel perforation.
Jane chatted as the treatment progressed. It was a very weird feeling and was uncomfortable at times. But afterwards I had a great sense of lightness. I had a slight headache was the only side effect I experienced which was due to the toxins leaving my body. There is no hard sell to have lots though having 2/3 a year would be beneficial
I noticed my stomach was less bloated, had a feeling of lightness and a few weeks on still have that feeling of wellbeing. Definitely worth doing. The cost of the treatment was £60.00.
