View Full Version : questions about home colonic kits
02-03-2012, 11:20 PM
I have a couple of questions about these home colonic kits that you can buy, if anyone knows the answers:
1. Can these home colonic kits do as good a job of cleaning your colon as a colon hydrotherapist can? If you go to a hydrotherapist they will put the water in under pressure while a home clonic kit just uses gravity. Seems like it wouldn't do as good of a job.
2. Is a home colonic kit any better than an enema? I just don't see how they could clean anymore of the colon than an enema would since the water isn't really under pressure. And they say that an enema only cleans out a small part of the colon, so I would think these home colonic kits would do about the same.

It seems to me that more and more people prefer the gravity method. There are a lot of professionals too that prefer to use the gravity method. I've never tried the method where your colon is filled under pressure and then you have to hold it and ask to have the flow direction switched so you can release. I think also that there's more of a chance for injury with the pressure method, kind of like filling up a balloon. I think one of the reason's why many people suggest going to a professional colon hydrotherapist is because there's less chance of injury all around, but also because the professional has knowledge of the colon and can give deep massages to the abdomen/colon to help release any matter stuck to the walls. They typically can feel areas of your colon that need more attention. But the chance of injury at home with something like a colema board is very slim to none if you follow the directions properly.
Yes home colonic kits such as a colema board are much different than an enema. An enema bag that you can get at the pharmacy is generally only 2 quarts. Compared to a 5 gallon bucket or 20 gallon tote full of water you can really begin to picture the difference in cleansing by the sheer water volume alone. Imagine trying to wash a muddy vehicle with a gallon of water compared to an unlimited supply of water from a hose. The hose offers a much greater volume of water and is going to get that vehicle clean. But the gallon jug will only move some of the mud around and won't make a difference. Yes, with a colema board you can reach the entire length of colon, from the sigmoid all the way around to the cecum. So really you can see that there is a difference between an enema and an at home kit such as the colema board.
Oh I wanted to add that it isn't the pressure of the water that cleans the colon walls during a colonic. It's the water saturating dry stuck on matter that allows it release from the colon walls. IMO, warm water works better, just like washing crud off dishes in the sink, you use warm/hot water instead of cold.

Thanks guys for responding to my questions. By the way, one of the links on Traceyraw's homepage takes you to an shower enema thingy on amazon. I'm confused because it looks like if it hooks up to your shower then it would actually be a "shower colonic system" not a "shower enema system", wouldn't it?
Also, I noticed that it looks like it doesn't have a water filter on it, and I heard you were suppose to use filtered water when you do a colonic. Is that important? And if so, I have a water distiller, can I use distilled water?
I was also wondering about the fact that it hooks up to your shower pipe, wouldn't that mean that you would have no way of knowing how much water you have used since it's not coming from a bucket or a jug?
I have noticed that some of these home colonic kits have disposable tubes that you only use once (the part that goes up your butt) so you have to keep buying more of them. Couldn't you just clean it with something (disinfect it) and use it again?

I don't have any info on some of your questions. But I would suggest getting a filter if you have water that is chlorinated and/or also has fluoride. There are a lot of opinions on both sides of the coin for distilled water. So maybe you should google it and determine what you prefer.
I think that some people just reuse the disposable tips that is suggested to only use once. With the colema board you get two of them, but IMO I think the stainless steel tip should just come with the kit and it was my one gripe about getting a colema board. But I broke down and purchased the stainless steel tip, so I can't comment on using the disposable tips.
