Needing A Colonic in the Worst Way

I may gross some people out but the name of this blog is whatever comes to mind.  Right now I am needing a colonic in the worst way.  It's been two years since my last one.  I was on a roll getting them once a month until I got pregnant.  For those of you who are wondering, what is she talking about?  Let me feel you in on what a colonic entails (no pun intended).  A colonic is the infusion of water into the rectum by a colon therapist to cleanse and flush out the colon. The colon therapist inserts a disposable speculum into the anus.  The speculum is connected to a long disposable plastic hose which is connected to a colon hydrotherapy unit.  Warm, filtered water is released into your colon and the warm water causes the muscles of the colon to contract. You don't smell a thing but you can look through a clear hose and see mounds of feces leaving your body.  You may feel some cramping but the colon therapist is there to lightly massage your abdomen during the process.  My colon therapist goes a step further and massage my feet.  A typical session may last 45 minutes. When it's over you feel like a million bucks.  If you get enough of them you actually lose inches around your stomach.   

What are the benefits to getting a colonic?

To remove accumulated waste from the colon
To help prevent constipation
To improve overall health

Don't get it confused with getting an enema.  Colonics clean the entire part of the colon, enemas only clean the lower part of the colon.  

You be amazed how much waste is trapped inside of you, your colon is essential because it's there where your immune system resides and if you have waste there then you're susceptible to diseases such as cancer.

While I'm at it, I'm giving my therapist a call, because I am long overdue.
