Colonic Hydrotherapy ok for people with Abdominal hernia?
Topic: Colonic Hydrotherapy ok for people with Abdominal hernia?
December 13, 2019 / By Kendal Question:
I've been reading up on Colonic Hydrotherapy and its many benefits and would love to try this. However, I recall hearing that people w/ abdominal hernia's are not candidates for this. My doc told me I had a small hernia near my umbilical I recall, but nothing serious. Nonetheless, I want to be precautious. Anyone know the dangers of Colonics in people w/ abdominal hernia'a? (Doc not avail and I've called few clinics but to no success.....have appointment) Just need an answer like, today! Thanks everyone! :)
oh btw, my docs appt is actually my GI doc appt. What I meant was that I couldn't wait until then for any answer...too anxious. Also, yes there are actually plenty of benefits to colonics but like everything else out there, its not for everyone....and many will have a different view on things. No actual proof that its bad for you but lots of proof that it benefits as long as you do it properly and take the correct precautions, like taking plenty of probiotics. Guess I'll wait for my doc for the hernia problem and see what he says. Thank you all so much for your help...really did appreciate it. :)
Oh and if you feel your health problems returned after a colonic, its probably because you didn't maintain a good healthy diet? A colonic is the begining of a diet but you must continue to do your part in eating healthy. Additionally, colonics are benefifcial every few months and not too often as not necessary. Thanks again.

If you need an answer like today, I suggest postponing the appointment until you have more info on your health condition and colonics. My nonprofessinal opinion is that an abdominal hernia and a colonic is not a good combination. However, ask an unbiased professional. That's what they get the big bucks for.
About 8 years ago, I went through a phase of using enemas and later "graduated" to colonics for the chronic fatigue I was suffering from. I found the colonics made me feel great for a day, maybe two. Then my health problems would return. Colonics were just a temporary fix.
I did hear of a woman with a spastic colon who had to be hospitalized after a colonic. The link below is probably very heavily biased against colonics, but you might want to take a look at it. http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=na...

There are actually no known benefits to a colonic. You should not get one even if you're healthy and if you have some abdominal issues then you really shouldn't.

A colonic is a very healthy procedure for anyone, it's to bad so many people are so skeptical. I take a colonic once a month and an enema on and off in between.

Forget the colon cleansing, they have ZERO health benefits but plenty of risk.
"No scientific evidence supports the alleged benefits of colon cleansing. The bowel itself is not dirty and barring drugs or disease, cleans itself naturally without need for assistance. Some types of colon cleansing present potential hazards; the equipment used during colon cleansing has caused damage to the rectum in a small number of individuals, and caused amoebiasis when improperly sterilized. Certain enema preparations have been associated with heart attacks and electrolyte imbalances. Frequent colon cleansing may interfere with the proper functioning of the colon and can lead to dependence on laxatives or enemas to defecate."
"Colon cleansing is not necessary as the body naturally removes waste material. Colon cleansing may disrupt the balance between bacteria and natural chemicals in the bowel, and may interfere with the colon's ability to shed dead cells. Other rare but serious complications include gastrointestinal perforation from improper insertion, and amoebic infection from poorly sterilised equipment. Some colon cleansing regimes disrupt fluid and electrolyte balance which may lead to dehydration and salt depletion, whilst repeated or excessive cleansing programs can lead to anemia and malnutrition. Excessive use of enemas have also been associated with cardiac problems such as heart failure, and heart attacks related to electrolyte imbalances when used with coffee."

because your bowel has been completely emptied, it will take a while for things to return to what is 'normal' for you Just make sure you drink plenty water and eat plenty fresh fruit and vegetables and include roughage in your diet

Originally Answered: Is colon hydrotherapy safe? If it is, why can't I find any major hospitals that puts it on the service list?
Colonic Hydrotherapy, Colonic Irrigation, whatever fancy name you want to give it....its an enema. Hospitals give enemas occasionally for the relief of constipation. That is it.
Colonic Hydrotherapy as proposed by various alternative practitioners claims to "detoxify" the body from all sorts of unspecified toxins and other nasties, and boost your immune system bla bla bla. There is no evidence for this, and the practise is without any scientific merit. that is why you won't find it available as a "service" at a legitimate hospital, but only at spas, private "holistic health" clinics, naturopaths etc.
You may "agree with the idea" but there is no reason to clean out your colon. Your body does a really good job of that on its own.
It is also a potentially dangerous practice. It can deplete the body of electrolytes like sodium and potassium. It can remove beneficial bacteria as effectively as overuse of antibiotics (ironic, huh?) and there is a small but serious risk of bowel perforation and peritonitis.
