I couldn't find any exact info on this on the net so I thought maybe someone on the boards might have some experience.<br><br><br><br>
I have had several colonoscopies and sigmoidoscopies before and you always do a Fleet Kit clean out and enema for your colon prior to the procedure.<br><br><br><br>
It is supposed to clean your colon out so the doctor can look at the whole thing with this snakelike camara.<br><br><br><br>
I was reading about colon hydrotherapy too and how it supposed to remove years of build up debris in your colon. (some real gross stuff is supposed to come out!). The Fleet kit sort of liquifies everything so you can't really tell what is coming out.<br><br><br><br>
I was wondering if any one has done both of these: Fleet enema and the colon hydrotherapy and whether they both clean out your colon equally well?<br><br><br><br>
I was just wondering if the Fleets I have done in the past really cleaned out all the same stuff that the colon hydrotherapy is supposed to clean out as well.<br><br><br><br>
anyone have any experiences with this? (sorry, a bit of a gross topic in a way).<br><br><br><br>

A 'Fleet' enema is not at all like colon hydrotherapy. The only similarity is that you are putting liquid into your bowel via the rectum. A colon hydrotherapy session may involve as much as 10 gallons of water, abdominal massage and probiotics, whereas a Fleet enema is 4.5 oz. of a chemical solution.<br><br><br><br>
Be careful and check with your doctor either way. I have known people to become injured <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">

I have no experience with a home enema. I had my first colonic about a month ago. I'd been raw for a month at that time, and most everything that came out was just the same water that went in, usually very clear. I bought a package of 3, so I'll be going back to see if I can get anything dislodged (if there IS anything to dislodge) with the 2nd and 3rd times.
