Colonic Irrigation Part 2
My first appointment was with Margaret, a lovely middle aged woman looking many years younger than her actual age. The whites of her eyes were so white and she looked so “clean” that I decided straight away this colonics thing must be doing her good. I also pryed out of her very early on that she would have several colonic sessions a month on an ongoing and regular basis.
I suppose I should tell you about Margaret’s colonic equipment because I found out later that not all colonics systems are created equal. The colonic equipment Margaret has in her clinic is called the “Libbe” system. Water flows into your colon through a fine tube inserted into the anus, and water flow pressure can be controlled by the client using the taps which are closeby to the bed on which you are reclining. The client is afforded full privacy and full control over their session once they are happy to go ahead on their own without supervision. And, unlike some other systems where the water pressure is pre-set to a very slow release pressure, you are able to ensure maximum benefit from the 60 minute session by turning pressure onto higher settings if you are comfortable.
As I said, I found that not all colonic systems are equal when I tried out different equipment (a few sessions later) in a different clinic where I was able to compare these sessions with a different operating system. By contrast, there was no client control over the water flow which actually was a fixed pressure equivalent to a ‘dribbling’ flow which meant the whole session was equivalent to taking a single enema, rather than the equivalent of 15 enemas or more. This type was a complete waste of money!
So, back to the basics of colonics, for anyone not having yet experienced one; the water flows in, and when you feel “full” enough, or the urge to push, you do so, and faeces will evacuate around the tube into a small opening and quickly flushed away. The client will fill up and evacuate several times during the course of the colonic session; and at the end of it, you can be very tired indeed as it can be quite a workout! And, at the end of the full 60 minute session, you get up, sit straight onto the toilet and pass any left-over water that has not been passed.
Session number 1 was fairly uneventful in terms of moving mountains of faecal matter (as I had hoped or expected), but despite this, the experience was very interesting. It was uneventful in the sense that I probably passed the equivalent of a single bowel movement but I found the whole procedure fascinating and promising. Margaret had promised me that if I had alot of faecal matter stewing in my colon, it would eventually “soften up and come out” and this might take a few sessions she said; and she was right. In this first session however, I gathered up the courage to view the contents of my bowels through viewing tube, and I began to orientate to the environment, the posters on the walls, the reading material, and the abdominal massagers that were by the bed.
The most notable happening of that first session one was that I had not realised that I needed to wait for quite some time after the session was completed on the toilet to ensure my colon was completely emptied of water…. That’s something Margaret forgot to tell me. Instead, I had prematurely gotten up off the toilet, dressed, paid Margaret, drank some probiotics, and then quickly got straight into my car where I swiftly, and not so graciously, lost my bowels on the car seat. Colonics can be a bit messy but very worth it! Stay tuned for Part 3 of my colonic adventures.
My colonics were controlled by the practitioner entirely. I was never alone in the room apart from the last part of toileting and emptying my bowel.
I didn't feel at all like I'd had a workout or that it was hard work. The only thing I had to do was lie back whilst the practitioner massaged my intestines whilst doing the colonic in order to help things travel/pass through. I found it quite relaxing, but at times I found the massage a bit sore. I basically had to just lie there and let everything flow out.
Oh yes! I do remember being told to go to the toilet and sit for a while and let everything that was left loose in there leave my bowels! THAT I can remember. Thankfully, I never had any accidents. But oh lord, I do remember, having like an urge to go to the toilet on my drive home.
