Culturelle seems helped me very much. I only have little mucus and blood so far.
 
I know stomach acid may had killed some of the probiotics in the cuturelle before it even reached colon. I am thinking to mix cuturelle with distilled water, then squeeze the diluted culturelle into the colon using suppository method. This way, probiotics can reach the colon directly. What you think?  You feedback is highly appreciated.                        Peter

Culturelle, as are most good probiotics, is formulated to survive the acid in the stomach and the bile in the small intestine, delivering the active ingredient to the colon. Have you ever considered that the ingredients they use to accomplish this may be harmful to the colon, since they aren't intended to make it that far?
 
I think we need to use a little caution in what we stick up our bottoms. Just because something is good for you when taken orally, doesn't automatically mean it will be effective (or even safe) taken rectally.

NIcepeter,

I am already doing it in addition to bifidum bacteria and aged liquid garlic.

Most colonic centers do this towards the end of their programs, so it's nothing new. They may not use Culterelle, but they definately use probiotics, which are inserted throughout the entire colon "and" they have been doing this for many, many years.

The goal of Culturelle and many (if not all) probiotics is to reach the gastrointestinal tract, which begins from the mouth and ends at the anus...this includes the colon. My nutritionist has spent years researching which probiotics, taken orally, are the most effective at making it to the colon; he also recommends a probiotic enema, which is taken for a two month period as part of his program.

This approach treats you from both ends, which in my humble opinion is the most effective way to repopulate the colon. Finally, probiotics are not harmful to the colon; you may experience gas while the good bacteria is consuming the bad bacteria, but even then it will only last a few days. If you want more information on probiotic enemas you should contact a colonic center (also called colon hydrotherapy).

ps.
I have noticed a "big" difference with probiotic enemas. My stools were fully formed through diet but now the texture is better and they don't smell anymore and believe me...they used to smell, really, really, really bad.

No more mercy flushes...lol

Good luck

My bottom hurts. In the night, I wake up with pain in my bowel - not a stomach ache, just pain. Walking around helps it a little. I also have pain in my behind in .... hmmmm....a private place. It isn't hemmorhoids. Anybody have any ideas?
I don't see a Cancer area here. Is there one?
