Advice given by the NHS about colonic irrigation

On the NHS website, they have described colonic irrigation as a safe procedure. They also supply some information that they deem important for you to understand before undergoing the treatment.

They suggest that prior to colonic irrigation, you should avoid eating a large amount of food or drinking a lot. The NHS also advises that you tell your therapist about your medical history and lifestyle in as much detail as you can.

The NHS also explain that after having colonic irrigation, you could possibly be administered some probiotics. These contain friendly bacteria to aid the health of the digestive system and to replenish the stock of beneficial bacteria that were lost during the colonic irrigation procedure. They also state that these probiotics are either to be taken orally (as a tablet) or inserted up into the rectum. It is vital that you are fully clear as to which probiotic you have been given.
