You’re waiting for the gastroenterologist to give you a colonoscopy. The purpose of the preparatory colonoscopy is to remove the entire stool (kala) from the colon. Helps a gastroenterologist in carrying out a colonoscopy; the doctor needs to clearly see the intestinal wall.
To see what is in your colon, it must be empty and clean. There are two options. One of them – home strong laxatives, the other – office hydrotherapy of the colon.
The laxatives require a doctor’s prescription. He may need a gallon jug of powder. The patient fills the jug with water and drinks a glass of mixture at intervals of 10 minutes until the whole gallon is consumed. Diarrhea begins after the first drinks. Other over-the-counter drugs cause diarrhoea due to the use of enema at home or imitation of 40 sodium phosphate tablets. Some home enemas products can cause kidney damage, so in December 2008, the FDA had to issue a black box warning regarding the risk of kidney damage.
A team of physicians from the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons and the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy published recommendations for preparing the intestine before colonoscopy. The doctors agreed: “Caution should be exercised when choosing a drug for the intestines for patients with severe hepatic, renal or cardiac dysfunction, as well as for elderly people.”
For young and healthy people, preparatory activities for colonoscopy at home are not a problem. What are the people with kidneys, heart, liver, disease, obesity, hemorrhoids, chronic constipation, necessarily old and weak? Regular diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal cramps can exacerbate health problems, which can lead to discontinuation of medication and ineffective colon cleansing. This, in turn, makes it difficult to examine the entire colon of the doctor.
Fortunately, there is another clever way to clear the colon to prepare it for a colonoscopy. This is called colon hydrotherapy, also called colic. The cleansing of the colon with water has been known since the 14th century BC.
Currently, there are machines for colon hydrotherapy, registered by the FDA, with a thermostat, gauge and disposable equipment. We have hundreds of highly skilled colon hydrotherapists in the United States who can cleanse the colon by irrigating clean clean water and gentle belly massages. A number of U.S. doctors recommend colon hydrotherapy as a safe and effective way to prepare the colon for colonoscopy.
Renowned gastrointestinal surgeon Leonard Smith, M.D., of Gainesville, Florida, said. “I am well aware of the functions of the colon and truly believe that colon hydrotherapy is the ideal cleansing environment for preparing a patient for a colonoscopy.”
Douglas Brody, M.D., of Reno, Nevada, believes. “Hydrotherapy of the colon is the best means for cleansing and detoxifying the gastrointestinal tract, which can only be dreamed of. I encourage its use.”
Certified gastroenterologist Robert Charm, MD, of Walnut Creek, California, advises a clinical professor of medicine at the University of California. “And in any case, I prefer my patients to receive colon hydrotherapy in the morning before the colonoscopy. It’s a safe way to cleanse your colon. It is a therapeutic method for relieving irritable bowel syndrome with gases and bloating, chronic constipation. , abdominal discomfort and many other gastrointestinal problems.”
Colon hydrotherapy is the healthiest known way to cleanse the colon before colonoscopy, and is currently used in hospitals. For example, The Hospital of Dunbury, Connecticut, made it an ideal choice for training.
Benefits of colonoscopy training using colon hydrotherapy, also known as “colic”:
- Cleansing the colon does not require drinking a liter of water or strong laxatives.
- The procedure is carried out in the office lying down and lying under the constant supervision of a well-trained hydrotherapist. A small disposable tube is carefully inserted into the rectum. The colon is washed with warm clean purified water. The pressure in the colon is usually low, even lower than the pressure in the bathroom, which secretes the stool during constipation.
- When a person feels the urge to defecate, the flow of water stops and the drain valve opens so that the colon can naturally cleanse from the products of life, derived by the flow of water.
- Recurring hot flashes of water can remove the stool from the colon even in chronic constipation. According to medical literature, colon hydrotherapy helped the gastroenterologist to observe the entire lumen of the colon in 98% of cases. This helps to protect the colon and maintain its productivity.
- An experienced colon hydrotherapist does a light belly massage. It pushes the water deeper until it reaches the blind intestine (the beginning of the colon). Massage also helps to reduce waste from the colon wall and supports the peristaltic function of the colon.
All methods of colon cleaning can remove not only waste, but also various minerals, as well as friendly and useful intestinal flora. To prepare a person for colonoscopy, Europeans use therapeutic mineral water, made from real Carlovar thermal salt. European doctors have been recommending drinking this water for almost all colon diseases for 250 years. Carlovar therapeutic mineral water stimulates and improves the results of the colon hydrotherapy session, eliminating spasms and spasms, making it more pleasant and successful. Often the client and the colon hydrotherapist are surprised by the strong release during this session. Carlovar therapeutic mineral water can provide the body with the necessary minerals and trace elements.
In my clinic, we use high-quality wholegrain probiotics to restore beneficial intestinal bacteria in the colon. We recommend taking them a month after the colonoscopy.
To prepare the colon and clear review of the bowel lumen is recommended to conduct a session of hydrotherapy of the colon one or two days before the examination and in the morning before the colonoscopy. The time it takes to complete colon hydrotherapy sessions is between 30 and 40 minutes. There are no specific instructions on colon hydrotherapy that are required; just don’t eat solid food two hours before the procedure.
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and valuable way to prepare the colon for a colonoscopy.
