There is no way on this earth that I could have eliminated what came out of me through the 3/4" tube of aa closed system. I was fortunate to have found the Open LIBBE Colon Hydrotherapy system.
Here is my story.
I had been severely constipated for over 10 years and became quit impacted this year. I suffer from IBS and a very slow peristalsis after an injury that damaged my Vegas Nerve in 1991.
In April, 2010, my doctor was unable to hear any bowel sounds at all. No matter what we had been doing. We had no success. Enemas, twice a day, fiber and stool softeners, supplements, you name it. I was facing surgery.
I had three weeks before my pre-surgery scope, and I felt like I just wanted to die, literally. I told my mother how I felt and she said, "I think you should try colonics. I don't belive in colonics, but I think you should try it."
I felt that I had nothing to loose so I checked around for Colon Hydrotherapy in my local area. I found Mia, at the Whole Body Cleanse Center. She was the first one to call me back so I went to see her. She had the Libbe Open system.
It took 14 sessions of 45 min each to completely break up my impaction. I went every day except Sunday for 2 1/2 weeks, since I only had 3 weeks before the surgery. I was desperate and willing to do anything.
Not only did I pass the stuff I needed to in order to avoid surgery, but some of it was about 2" wide. "Yeouch!" (I would not have been able to pass half of what I passed through a closed system).
But, the most exciting news is that my energy shot through the roof. I went from being sick, fatigued and weak for the past 10+ years, to full of energy and able to work full time for the first time. And in just 2 weeks! It was unbelievable.
I will tell you, that during most of the sessions I was in terrible pain and nauseated. And one day a "toxic load" broke loose and I felt like I had been poisoned. (A toxic load is when a pocket of bowel breaks loose releasing and excessive build up of toxins into your system). The next session instantly relieved the symptoms. I didn't quit. I didn't give up. No matter how rough it got. I didn't give up. Something inside of me told me that I needed to continue if I wanted a chance to avoid surgery.
Mia told me that most people give up when they get sick or get much pain. But, that is when they most need to be patient, persistent, and continue. Don't give up, because it is so worth it in the long run. I will continue colonics every couple weeks probably for the rest of my life due to low peristalsis and IBS.
I spoke with a colonics specialist that uses a closed system and she confirmed that If you need to eliminate anything larger than 3/4" then it won't fit through a closed system tube.
I went for my pre-surgery scope on April 29th, 2010. The surgeon was able to tell me that we were not going to be doing surgery. That everything looks really good now. The tissues look good. My bowel sounds were really good. I broke into tears and hugged him right there in the office. I cried through out the day. I couldn't believe it. I had been so scared because I felt that surgery was ultimately going to make things worse. Slow my peristalsis even more.
I wish everyone out there success and remember that love comes out of happy hearts.
