Before a person will undergo the procedure of colonoscopy, he or she will be prepared first by removing all stools in his or her intestines so that the doctor will have a clear view of the intestines wall as colonoscopy will be conducted. In order to empty the large intestine and clean it, it is either the patient will be given harsh laxatives at home, or will undergo colon hydrotherapy in the clinic before the doctor can perform colonoscopy.
A prescription of drugs from the doctor will be needed to create the laxative, and this powder of drug will be mixed into the gallon of water, and the patient will take one glass of the mixture in every 10 minutes until he or she had consumed the laxative mixture. Expect to experience diarrhea after you have drank the first few glasses.
On the other method of cleansing the color in preparation for colonoscopy, colon hydrotherapy is viewed as a smart way to cleanse the colon. Under several health conditions, colonic or colon hydrotherapy is the usual prescription of medical doctors. Colon hydrotherapy features machines with thermostat, manometer, and disposable equipment, and irrigation in the colon is conducted with the use of purified and clear water together with soft abdominal massage.
By using trusted Longwood colon hydrotherapy experts, the patient will have the following advantages.
The number one advantage is that taking strong laxative or drinking a gallon of water is not necessary for the patient to undergo just to cleanse his or her colon.
Next is that the patient is in a restful lying down position in a Winter Park's top-rated colonics clinic as the procedure is done by a well-trained colon hydrotherapist. As the patient feels the need to defecate, the flow of water will be stopped and to allow the colon to naturally discharge the waste, a discharge valve is opened and the waste is brought out by the outflow of the water.
The repeat water flashing done in colon hydrotherapy would allow full cleansing from fecal matter that would give the gastroenterologist a clear view to observe the whole colon lumen and conduct a productive examination of the colon.
Part of the colonic procedure is the gentle massage performed by the experienced hydrotherapist, and the massage makes the water deeper into the beginning of the colon, and further remove the waste from the wall of the colon.
Before a colonoscopy procedure, the colon is prepared by performing the colonic one or two days before conducting the colonoscopy itself. Colon hydrotherapy takes about 30 to 40 minutes, and the only instruction is not to eat solid foods two hours before the procedure.
