    I've heard both sides of the spectrum from doctors and people alike. I know that colonics reduce all the good bacteria as well but the bad goes with it. Is this something benefitial if our gut is so far gone that we can't heal it properly? Or detrimental because removing any good bacteria will only cause more problems?

    :confused: You'll get both arguments here too I bet!

    I don't think there is a definite answer that fits everyone. Some have found benefit from colonics and some have had bad experiences with them. Having had quite a few myself, I find that there is also a huge difference in the skills and equipment of the therapists who administer them.

    For myself, I have had extremely good practitioners with the best equipment and others who sort of forced the colonic -- which was a very uncomfortable experience and gave no discernible benefit.

    I saw benefits from the first ones done by the "expert" with great equipment, but not help for ME/CFS as a whole--just gut symptoms I had been having.

    The bowel has evolved over millions upon millions of years without such "treatments" and given that there is no evidence to confirm its effectiveness; I would save the effort, money and time.

    If you want a cheap colonic take 20 grams of ascorbic acid(vitamin C) in 4 glasses of water(5G per). Believe me, you'll get stuff out ;D

    But seriously it works pretty well. I wouldn't do it often though.

    Colonics were on an old survey the number one non-medical treatment for us, for .... causing major problems. Do be cautious. They may help some, but they do cause many to get worse.

    Funny you say that, I actually had to do that a couple years back to find my vitamin c tolerance level for my adrenal fatigue. Not comfortable!
