i am also having a hard time with the b/p(stool gets harder)... and know many people who had big succsess with colonics. since i am here in costa rica, where its impossible for me to find a professional colon therapist, i was wondering what is the difference between enema and colonic. once i put a big water container, i can also use a lot of water, repeat it and so on. the only difference i see, is, that you have to take the nozzle in and out between water going in and out. is there any hidden secret, why i cant do it by myself? i allready did enemas with 2 liters in one go. if i repeat these some times it should be the same than a colonic.
all this cleansing, is it just about the colon, or also the small intestines? then offcourse the shakes make more sense...
i guess this issue has been answeres many times before, i just cant find it...
The primary difference between an enema and a colonic is the amount of water used...when I perform a colonic I generally use between 15-20 gallons of water! There is another difference, though, that is much harder to describe in words. A closed-system colonic involves the insertion of a speculum that passes and opens the second anal sphincter (an open-system uses a thin rectal tube which does not do this) so that waste flows out without any need for pushing...not straining, but the usual pressure exerted to eliminate. This allows for a 'dancing' or 'rocking' to occur between filling and releasing...like I said, it's hard to explain it...LOL...more of a feeling for it through experience. Rather than fill-fill-fill then release-release-release like an enema...it's more like fill-release-fill-release-fill-release as a continuous process. This adds to the effectiveness of the cleansing process and also provides the 'exercise' to the bowel muscle... which you don't get from an enema...regardless of the quantity of water.
*Phew*...words can be so limiting sometimes...LOL...this probably makes NO sense...but it's the best I can do to describe it!
All that being said... you have to be practical and work with whatever is available to you. A super enema would certainly help to clear you out. You should be using purified or distilled water for any enemas or colonics. Either one is only going to clear what is loosened already...and only address the colon...part or whole. Neither a colonic or an enema is a replacement for a colon cleanse, though...which addresses the entire digestive tract and not just the colon.
I know someone in the UK that ordered this unit and is having great success with it. It is a significant initial investment...but if you benefit from regular colonics it will save you some money in the long-run.
Because of the added goodies in the Holistic Horizons program...an increase in cleansing reactions may be experienced. I usually have a bit more discomfort in terms of temporary headaches, muscle tension and fatigue when using these products...which almost always passes when I have the next bowel movement. I don't want to scare anyone here...these reactions are considerably less than with some of the other more aggressive cleanses...but I did want you to know that this can happen. Without a doubt...it is worth it!
ok, you convinced me totally! in fact i didnt know in that detail, what colonics means! of course i will not be able to get 20 gallons with a enema bag...i will not even try it. has the colonics any disadvantage to the b/p story? if not it would be only expensive but much more convinient, wouldnt it?
thank you sooooo much, yours viraj
actually, its bullshit what i wrote. for me the hard part at this cleansing is the eating less, or even fasting, because i get very weak and lose much weight. and if i eat normally, there is not much space to include the shakes on a empty stomach. thats why i thought colonics would be easier(you just go and get it done without having to deal with the eating) but i guess its not as easy as that...isnt it?
