Well I went for the colon cleansing and it did not hurt a bit.  Maybe a little uncomfortable at times, but well worth it.  I felt so lousy from the abx.  I go to a nurse who used to work with an acupuncturist and thus learned about colon cleansing and a variety of other cleansing options.  My husband goes to her too, he  has been on abx for 16 months and had built up a lot of yeast. 
 
She was very knowledgeable (her daughter and the daughter's boyfriend both have lyme) and has available a great deal of supplements to deal with what she finds during the cleansing. 
 
I don't think you have to have lyme to have this procedure done, we are all exposed to a bunch of toxins, parasites, etc. and need to get them out of our system. 
 
It cost $75 for the cleansing and was the best $$ that I could have spent.  I left feeling so much better.
 
She found very little yeast (I had only been on abx for a month) but did find fungal material (yuck!!!!).  Could that be due to lyme?  I hear yeast mentioned often but not fungal material. 
 
Who ever knew I would be so excited about such a procedure, but I am.
 
She did mention that abx can affect a person's metablism, liver, intestines, etc.  Add in the spirochete and no wonder we don't feel very good. 
 
She was somewhat alarmed that I had been on synthroid, crestor, allegra for about 20 years or more.  I did not realize that those meds would have affected my intestines and created a toxic situation. 
 
I have another appointment scheduled and am actually looking forward to it.

How is a $75.00 colon cleansing different from a $1.99 enema other than the do-it-yourself factor?

I've had to do more bowel preps in a year than most people do in a lifetime. I never felt different afterwards. I'm really curious about how it's done. Also, how did she find out about the yeast and fungus in your colon? I'm guessing she collected some material and looked at it under a microscope.

I probably worded it wrong.  Your large intestine is what gets cleaned out.  The procedure takes close to an hour with repeated flushings taking place.  The nurse tries to get through to the full length of the intestine.  In the machine that is used there is something like a window so she can see what is being removed as it floats by.  I hesitate typing this since it does sound gross, but my bloating is gone and I lost a few pounds since the procedure.  The last few feet of the intestine is where most of the toxins are lodged, an enema would not be able to get those out from what I understand. 

She stated for the metabolism to operate properly and for the liver to do so as well procedures like this are very beneficial.

Hi Anne,
 
Good for you for getting this done!  Even though I irrigate my colon at home (please don't ask me the details) eyes I want to get it done by a professional. 
 
For those who do not know what's involved, here are some links:
 
They are about 9 minutes long or longer:
 
 
 
Cheers!

I'm wondering if you can do this a few hours before a colonoscopy so you don't have to do the whole torturous procedure the day before. I'd definately pay whatever someone wanted to avoid the day-before prep.

I don't know about the cleansing the day before a colonoscopy.  I will not see the nurse again till Oct. 18 ( she upped my next visit when she found out I have Bart too).  I will let you know when I find out.

I've been thinking about doing this, but the place I called recommended 13 visits within 6 weeks. Does that sound right? She said it was because I have Lyme, but it worried me because it seemed excessive.

H Bella,

  My husband never went for that many visits and the nurse knew he had lyme. He maybe went for 2-3 visits over a 6 week period. 

I will say this, my energy level is back despite my days being long.  I don't know whether to attribute this to the abx, the cleansing or both.  All I know is it is good to feel good.
