An Introduction To The Colonics

Colonic Cleansing — What You Need to Know. The popularity and the use of colonics in the treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) have become phenomenal! However, there are still a number of IBS sufferers that are not aware of how the use of a colonic can improve their gastro-intestinal problems.

A colonic has been shown to remove waste from the intestine when someone is constipated, prevent the occurrence of constipation in someone who is not, and generally cause a thorough colon cleaning.

A colonic refers to using a liquid, usually warm water to irrigate the colon. This method is specifically used in the treatment of IBS with constipation. The colonic softens the stool with the addition of the water, and helps it to move through the intestine. The waste is released without having to strain the bowels.

The way in which a colonic will enter the intestine is through the use of a speculum with a hose attached that is inserted into the anus. Warm water is then pumped into the colon, and this is then released back into the hose along with any other waste material that was causing constipation or blockage. After the warm water has been introduced into the colon, naturally the body will release the water back through the anus in the process of peristalsis. Peristalsis refers to the wave like movements of the gastro-intestinal system to move food and wastes along the smooth intestinal wall.

In this way, the body is able to flush out wastes that have been allowed to build up. The use of a colonic should not be a painful experience. Instead some people who suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome with constipation might complain of feeling a little uncomfortable. This is only in the situation where they are very constipated and have a lot of blockage. However, the uncomfortable feeling only lasts for a short time, and the bloating and constipated feeling associated with the blockage is permanently removed.
