April is IBS Awareness month

IBS is a chronic and unpredictable condition. Symptoms that change over time and are hard to talk about add to the challenge of living with it. IBS affects not only each of us who suffers, but also many others – family, friends, employers, students, teachers, patients, doctors, customers, constituents – everyone whose lives intersect with our own.

20121222-065925.jpgHaving IBS gives you something in common with literally millions of other people who live with their disorder every day. There is no cure, yet, but there are ways to manage though not always simple or straight forward. It may take some detective work before you find what works best.

Managing your own health is obviously important. Research shows that supportive relationships are also important. Here are some tips to help you and those close to you live with IBS.

Eight Guidelines for Living with IBS

  1. Don’t spend time and worry about what your symptoms may or may not mean. Start by getting a definite diagnosis from your doctor or investigating the triggers through testing we offer at the clinic.
  2. Take an active role in your own health care. Learn all you can about IBS so you understand the nature of the disorder and different management and treatment options.
  3. Use this web site to keep up to date with changes in understanding IBS and treatment advances.
  4. Try to identify things that seem to make your symptoms worse and work on reducing their impact.
  5. Investigate non-medication treatments that may help reduce symptoms, like diet, relaxation training, or hypnosis. Read more on colonic irrigation here
  6. Use medications or natural alternatives like ALOE VERA to relieve or avoid symptoms. You may only need them now and then if your symptoms are infrequent or mild. Or your therapist might suggest suitable natural remedies that can support you ongoing.
  7. Be sure to tell your therapist or health care provider about anything you take to treat your IBS.
  8. Find a health care provider who will work with you over the long term to help you manage and treat your IBS.

Questions to ask when booking a colonic

Go to a clinic that uses fully disposable kits or a proper hospital-grade autoclave. This is something you should ask for when booking your treatment. No parts of disposable kits should ever be re-used.
You could also ask whether the clinic uses filtered water. Also ask how the mains water is filtered, and whether the clinic keeps records of filter changes.
Ask where the therapist was trained, and check the school’s website.
Ask if any bodywork (massage, reflexology) will be incorporated into the treatment.
Ask whether your specific health concerns are going to be addressed.
Whenever you book a treatment, make sure the therapist or clinic carry full public liability insurance. An insurance certificate should be available for your inspection or displayed on the premises.

Colonic Irrigation Embarrassment

You should not feel embarrassed about getting colonic irrigation. The therapist is trained to carry out the treatment and they do it throughout the day for a living. The therapist should be very professional and has probably seen hundreds of bottoms throughout their career and so yours will be no surprise to them, it is just part of their job.

A common fear about colonic irrigation is smell. People are often nervous that the colonic irrigation will cause the same kind of odour produced when on the toilet passing stools naturally, which may cause embarrassment. However, as colonic irrigation is based around a closed system there is no bad smell at all.

At the end of the day, you are getting a colonic irrigation treatment in order to improve and maintain the health of your colon. This is beneficial to you in the long term and can save your from embarrassment in the future as a result of some symptoms of a toxic colon. You should not feel embarrassed about going for a colonic to take care of your health, nor should you be uncomfortable around the therapist. It is their job, they are trained to do it and they have seen it all before.

What is a colonic?

Thanks to wisegeek for explaining this so brilliantly.  All credits to wisegeek

Colonic irrigation or colon hydrotherapy, also known as a colonic, is an alternative medicine practice which involves flushing the colon with warm filtered water. The colonic removes a buildup of waste which supporters of the practice believe is harmful for digestive and general health. Practitioners and frequent patients claim that regular colonics keep them healthier, and that they are less prone to digestive problems. Most doctors trained in conventional medicine do not recommend the use of colonics for any medical condition (Talita’s notes – always ask if you think you might have a condition that might put you at risk, your therapist should point out all contraindications for this treatment), although enemas to cleanse the lower colon may be appropriate in certain situations. Studies have not suggested that a colonic would be harmful to a healthy individual, unless it was administered in unclean conditions (Talita’s notes – please feel free to come and have a look for yourself as to the high standards we serve by).

According to practitioners of alternative medicine (that’s me), fecal matter builds up in the colon and interferes with the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. It is believed that this causes the digestive system to become inefficient, leading to an assortment of health problems. Receiving a colonic is supposed to address this problem by removing buildup along the length of the colon.

What exactly does a colonic treatment involve/how is it done?

Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle treatment during which warm water is introduced into the bowel.

 

As the water is released, it flows out, providing a gentle cleansing effect upon the bowel wall. This gentle flushing of the bowel is repeated over a period of around 35-50 minutes.
All you have to do is lie comfortably on the bed, and you will feel a warm sensation in the abdomen. As the water enters the bowel, you will begin to feel ‘full’ and as the water is released, you will feel a sensation of release and at the end of the session you will feel cleansed and “lighter” than before your treatment.

People describe this as not just feeling lighter in weight, but in lifting their mood also.
Many do actually lose a little weight during the treatment as many pounds of waste material may have accumulated in the bowel.

Just one colon hydrotherapy session is equivalent to having several regular bowel movements. Further sessions can be even more substantial as older, hardened, impacted faeces are dislodged from the colon walls.
