    Would also love to hear an update from Judderwoky

    I can attest for what Victoria recommended though - the bowel prep OTC drink they provide before a colonoscopy. I enjoyed several months of good bowel health after that and I believe it killed off something nasty. Have all the symptoms back and was thinking of taking this again.

    This thread has inspired me to do so. And I will add a few things thereafter into the mix.

    Hi insearchof,

    Can you tell me the name of the OTC drink to which you're referring?

    Thanks

    Hi Orion

    I cannot recall the brand name, but it is the OTC drink prescribed to be taken 24 hours before a colonoscopy. I am sure if you asked for such at a pharmacy they would know what you meant....but if you wait for a few days I will post the brand name of the one I buy.

    You mix it up into about 2lts of water and you have to drink about a quarter of that -every 15 minutes. I also made sure I was well hydrated a couple of days leading up to this as well and drank a little after downing the 2 lts.

    After consuming the 2 lts - I immediately jumped into and sat in a hot bath - which helped lessen the onset of the bowel spasms that start before the main event. I found this made things a little easier. You will find though that you wont be able to go far from the bathroom for some hours after downing the drink as it gives you chronic ''dire -rear'' as they say.

    After things settle, I kept up the fluids and replaced my electrolites (or you could probably down a sports drink).

    It sounds like DE is working like very efficient scratchy fiber. Well not quite fiber but you know what i mean. Scrap, scrap, scraping at the intestinal walls, making sure they are all clean and sending everything out. Nice. Does anyone know how often you can take Vermox after you complete one cycle ?

    Thanks



    From what I've been reading there appears to be two types of diatomaceous earth - one of marine origin and one of freshwater origin. Can anyone here tell me which type is best for human consumption?

    In the US the colonoscopy prep drink (approximately 2 - 3 quarts??) is called "Go-lytely".
