Colonic Irrigation

Postby bferbear » Fri Feb 15, 2008 9:48 pm

Anyone here had one? Good, bad, indifferent??

As a basically homophobic Aussie male I have an aversion to anything being delivered through the backdoor on the offchance I may not find it discomforting and would therefore be a poof, however I am booked in for one tomorrow. Feedback would be appreciated.

:lol: The only feedback I can give I'm afraid as I know nothing about it. I love what you said. I'm a girl but wouldn't do it for the same reason. :lol:

after childbirth and other things such as a bowel cancer scare, this would be a walk in the park for me!! I've thought about it, but never done it.

Tell us how it goes! And is it expensive?

I will let you know how it goes afterwards.

The jokes have started already, I have had about 10 text messages this morning full of innuendo, when I told someone to can the innuendo he shot straight back with ........a bit uptight with the "in your endo" then are you..........My friends are almost as bad as I am with the smartar$e comments.

I feel violated!!!!

In all seriousness though, it was not a pleasurable experience, but not painful. You know the feeling you get when you really really need a toilet. 45 straight minutes of that feeling. The woman I went to begins with an iridology session to see what parts of your insides need the most attention, I didn't take this too seriously until she made some surprisingly accurate statements about some issues I have currently and have had in the past.

She has recommended 3 further sessions for me, 4 days apart, as well as a soluble fibre tablets twice a day and told me to chew my food more before swallowing (she reckons most people should learn to do this more).

All in all, if you have confidence in alternative therapies, it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. I do feel more comfortable after only one session, although she said todays session didn't do a lot for me as it was a generic flush out rather than a targeted therapy.

It is costing $80 a session, and the fibre tablets were $17 per hundred.

So tell me the gross stuff like what came out of you :shock: :o :lol: I've heard of people going that have heaps of worms and stuff like that coming out! Do you feel less bloated or lighter or anything?

I swear I could only do something like that if I was drunk! I absolutely hate hate HATE getting pap smears and stuff like that done and put it off for as long as possible (only had 2 in my life and i'm 25 :oops: ) so I just don't know how i'd go with a colonic!

What about 'how' they do it? Do you bend over and up goes the tube or do they do it on a table with a hole in it that you sit on and go up from there? I have no idea!!!

LMAO

I was lying on my left hand side facing away from the machine, tube came in from behind, I just closed my eyes and clenched my teeth. No idea what came out, the only thing I do know is that she asked me when I last ate eggplant, which was over a month ago, so maybe there was a bit of aubergine action happening.

As I said, I can't honestly say it wasn't uncomfortable, however not unbearably so.

One was to NEVER have to called some t*o*s*s*e*r sir again and the second was to have a gloved finger shoved where the sun should never shine :mrgreen:

Hehe, cheers.

I didn't tell my mates, my bosses wife heard me make the booking, she made a joke of it in front of one of my mates and it went from there. I wasn't planning on my mates every finding out.

Wow....this is something I've thought of, but as per the consesus, couldn't actually do!

Can I ask a silly question bear?? Why did you have it done?? constipation? Tummy problems? :oops:

Do you feel lighter, better??

I'm intrigued!! Surprisingly, it wasn't as expensive as I thought....!?

Thanks for sharing..!
