Post Colonic cleansing??

Has anybody tried colon therapy, or colonic cleansing? Does it help for IBS? My symptoms always happen in the morning, and are really bad...usually constipation, sometimes the opposite, either one extreme or the other. So this is just about my very last resort, I have tried everything else there is. Has it helped anyone? What exactly is the procedure? Thanks.

Hi Trinity,
I have had colonic cleansing done 3 times. Only the last time worked well..I let out a ton of stool. I am not sure what your symptoms are but it can help, Im sure. I suggest it to anyone if you are constipated, bloated and just feel tired and sluggish. I definatly felt a lot better. I went to a spa-like place and my nurse is very understanding and nice. Make sure you like the person giving you the cleanse or it may be embarressing. you can find many sites online if you look under google. The only bad thing about cleansing? Insurance doesn't cover it and it is about $60 per session, which lasts an hour. wbs
