Colonics are sometimes the butt end of the joke (sorry, sorry), but if there’s one thing those of us with chronic illness know, it’s that you can’t write off a treatment just because it seems weird or different to others. During a colonic, warm water (up to 16 gallons!) is flushed through the lower intestinal tract (also known as the colon) via a tube that’s inserted into the rectum. On occasion, instead of just water, a mixture of coffee and water is used. People who swear by colonics claim they support detox and thereby help with a huge range of maladies, including digestive problems, immune disorders, allergies, and headaches. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners might suggest a colonic to support a detoxifying diet that consists mainly of vegetables, herbal teas, and broth. In TCM, this diet and colonic combo is often recommended in the spring or fall. Kind of gives new meaning to the term spring cleaning, right?

I just passed my first parasite after doing a coffee enema. I was shocked as I’m not on a parasite cleanse (I will now start one!). All I did was have coconut milk and pumpkin seeds (two super anti parasitic foods) and do a coffee enema with binders (two days after a colonic)1. So wild! who else has had the beautiful experience of seeing a parasite?🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️😬🙌🏻😋
has anyone heard of/tried Lifeway Stem Cell patches? I got a colonic today and the woman who’s worked in the world of chronic illness for 30 plus years has been using one for two weeks and swears she notices massive differences in her energy, sleep, and skin elasticity. Feeling very called to try it..
i’ve had a colonic motility flare the past month and been on more laxatives and enemas than i can count accounting for almost 15 pounds in weight loss. as someone who previously struggled with disordered eating i’m finding a lot of triggers within the weight loss. has anyone else experienced something similar with their chronic illness and past eating behaviors? just trying to find some comfort as i love my body back to feeling better 💛
Got the xray results from the ER visit Saturday. The doc had said everything was "fine", implying I didn't have an impaction despite having a xray 2 weeks prior showing total impaction. The result of ER xray? "Bowel gas pattern with colonic stool", aka, impaction. See the GI doc later today. 18 days impacted.

The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman: Integrating Functional Medicine into Cleveland Clinic’s Inflammatory Bowel Program with Dr. Reguiero
Inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, is estimated to impact more than 2 million Americans. This term encompasses different disorders relating to inflammation in the digestive tract, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. And up until now, traditional gastroenterology took a linear view of treatment options, ignoring the impacts of diet and lifestyle, while many patients continued to struggle. Today’s guest on The Doctor’s Farmacy, Dr. Miguel Regueiro, is part of the positive shift happening in the conventional approach to IBD. Dr. Regueiro is the chair of Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology; his main clinical and research interest is IBD, with a focus on the natural course of these diseases and postoperative prevention of Crohn’s disease. Recently, he has been involved in developing new models of healthcare, including the first-of-its kind specialty medical home for IBD. This innovative healthcare delivery system has defined the concept of specialty medical home and will lead to further clinical programs and investigation of alternative models of care.
