Several companies and clinics offer colonic irrigation programs. It is not a one time deal. It involves a seven day juice fast, in which you do two colonics a day. Each treatment involves passing one bucketfull (5 liters) of water through your colon. It is said (I've never done this myself yet) that only by the fourth day or so, you start getting real results. What comes out of the colon very much resembles oil sludge (jet black and slimey), yet still retains that semi-solid mucus quality (it's pretty long too). Another specialty of this method are the ingredients: not only do you get warm water, but in it are fiberous seeds and a volcanic clay called bentonite. The former scrubs, while the latter attracts positive ions.
- Since the claim is that your colon traps decades of toxins with layers of mucus, and that these toxins are always seeping into your blood, clearing them out would do you good (increase your energy and allow your body to heal other ailments).
- Clearing out toxins inevitably releases some of them into the bloodstream, making you ill for several days.
- The full treatment will leave your bowel depleted, in terms of those "friendly germs" we keep hearing about in those yogurt commercials. It would then be the appropriate time to eat more yogurt.
