Dr Moser, who was a Canadian Chiropracter, is one of the few colon therapists that I have come across, who was provided with X-Ray evidence proving the benefits of regular Colon Cleansing. (Her writings have been published after her death by Steve Solomon.) Here is the extract:-
I took a course in colon therapy before purchasing my first colonic machine. The chiropractor teaching the class required all of his patients scheduled for colonics to take a barium enema followed by an X-ray of their large intestine prior to having colonics and then make subsequent X-rays after each series of 12 colonics. In the average colon more than 50% of the haustra (muscles that impel fecal matter through the organ) are dysfunctional due to loss of tone caused by impaction of fecal matter and/or constriction of the large intestine secondary to stress (holding muscular tension in the abdominal area) and straining during bowel movement.
The average person also has a prolapsed (sagging) transverse colon, and a distorted ascending and descending colon. The X-rays showed that it took a minimum of 12 colon treatments to bring about a minimal but observable change in the structure of the colon in the desired direction, and for the patient to begin to notice that bowel function was improving, plus the fact that they started to feel better. Most of his patients experienced so much immediate relief they voluntarily took at least 48 colonics, for the patients to notice a significant improvement in the function of the colon, and their X-rays began to look normal in structure. In reviewing over 10,000 X-rays taken at his clinic prior to starting colonics, the chiropractor had seen only two normal colon X-rays and these were from farm boys who grew up eating foods from the garden and doing lots of hard work. From How and When to Be Your Own Doctor - Dr. Isabelle A. Moser with Steve Solomon June, 1997.
I believe that these distortions seen by Dr. Moser in the average colon, explains why so many enema users today, find it difficult to take in more than 2 quarts for an enema.
Here are two extracts, one from a Medical Doctor and the other from a Colon Therapist where the benefits of filling and then stretching the walls of the colon are recognized:-
When fluid is passed into the colon, and particularly when it is passed in skillfully, without introducing any air, there is a gradual distention of the organ. An increase in the pressure of the lumen of the bowel has an instantaneous effect on the pressure of the rest of the abdominal contents. Is stretching the colon a good idea? My answer is a clear Yes! The stretching evens out tensions and restores function. One way to improve the overall function and integrated action of the colon is by stretching the organ, and it is quite plain that the only available way for stretching is through the installation of water gradually under slight-to-moderate pressure through the anal canal. Almost certainly this is a way to retrain the bowel.
From Fact, Fiction, Fraud in Modern Medicine - Thomas A. Dorman, MD
Introducing an enema to full colon capacity will result in a therapeutic distension or expansion of the colon. With repeated enema sessions, this ‚Äústretching‚ÄĚ process will tend to realign and reconstitute the integrity of the organ within the abdominal cavity towards a normal shape, size, and position. By using gravity along with this stretching action, old kinks, loops, gnarls, or twists of the colon can be corrected. Massaging techniques‚ÄĒespecially massaging techniques, which also incorporate gravity‚ÄĒare useful to realign and lift the colon back into a normal position, especially the transverse section. Administering the large enema in the knee-chest position is a good example of how gravity can be used to promote the ‚Äúre-education‚ÄĚ process.
From Kristina Amelong ‚Äď Certified Colon Therapist ‚Äď Optimal Health Network ‚Äď 2010.
Kristina Amelong, who runs the Optimal Health Network, favors the use of In-Line Pumps for enemas.
‚ÄúIn-line pumps add a therapeutic edge to any enema system. These innovative enema tools will deliver the solutions deep into the colon, as they gently push the enema liquid past any blockages. People who use this type of hose and pump system report less cramping, less leaking, and a therapeutic cleansing similar to a professional colon therapy session.‚ÄĚ
A Higginson‚Äôs syringe is a type of in-line pump.
Whenever cramps occur, Kristina recommends pumping the bulb to overcome any temporary blockages. As I have IBS I have been surprised when I have followed this advice and found the cramping to disappear, enabling further filling of the colon to proceed. This is the only way in which I have been able to inject and hold 5 quarts.
Some people prefer to increase the pressure of the injection by taking the enema fast. Here are two examples of people who use fast injections, rather than waiting for cramps to occur before increasing the pressure with an in-line bulb:-
When the colon is being filled slowly, one section at a time, sometimes there is a ‚Äėkink‚Äô and this causes cramping or a little pain. Sometimes it is better to straighten the ‚Äėkink‚Äô out quickly rather than drag it out, by letting the enema flow fast rather than slow. After the enema has completely filled the colon, it will distend the entire colon. I have achieved a complete filling of the colon by taking 6 quarts in a few minutes.
By June Dietz ‚Äď Daughter of a Doctor of Natural Medicine - 2010.
I take at least one 4 quart enema daily just after I get up. At least weekly I'll do longer sessions taking sometimes up to 4 enemas in a row of 5 quarts on the second and up to 6 quarts on subsequent enemas. I do it relatively fast, 4 quarts in about 3 minutes and on the second or subsequent enemas 5 quarts in just over 4 minutes, with bag rather high and kneeling. I do one or more enemas daily. I find less cramping if taken fast. I like the ability to control when to have a BM that a daily enema allows. I‚Äôve been doing this since my 20's and I'm 74 now with no health problems. From A Daily Enema User ‚Äď 2012.
In the above two examples, up to 6 quarts were injected to smooth out any kinks in the colon walls and to fill the colon completely.
Here is an enema procedure from a British booklet on the Water Cure:-
The High Enema - In the high enema the water is forced much further up the bowels and some ten pints [10 Imperial pints = 6 liters] of water are used, but it is wise to get this treatment under professional care, otherwise it is possible to do harm. Many people feel this type of apparatus holds the key to their health and are very disappointed when they are unable to get such treatment. Although unwilling to condemn this attitude entirely, I feel that better results could be had by a closer attention to diet. From About the Water Cure - Russel Sneddon 1965.
I think that many of the doctors at the turn of the century, recognised the benefits of 6 quart enemas, to overcome kinks, to reshape the colon, to exercise the walls and to remove as much impacted material as possible. Here are just four examples from many that were published at the turn of the century:
The intestine of an adult will safely hold 6 liters.
From Diseases of the Intestine ‚Äď John. C. Hemmeter ‚Äď 1902 ‚Äď Page 322.
The capacity of the large intestine of adults is about six quarts (liters).
From The Practice of Medicine ‚Äď James Tyson ‚Äď 1907 Page 416..
Injections of water are used for determining the capacity of the colon. The normal capacity of the large bowel is about six quarts, therefore if six quarts can be introduced by a fountain syringe, there is no obstruction in the colon; and if less than four quarts can be introduced there is probably some obstruction. From Diagnostic Therapeutics ‚Äď Albert Abrahams 1910 Page 550.
A six quart enema is required to completely fill the large intestine, and leakage of fluid through the ileo-cecal valve into the small intestine is rare.
From Diseases of the Digestive Organs ‚Äď Charles D. Aaron ‚Äď 1921 Page 222.
In this modern age of pills and drugs, it is fashionable to label all these doctors as quacks and charlatans. God forbid that Doctors today approve the use of full capacity enemas to actually remove kinks, straighten distorted and twisted areas of the colon walls, and to remove impacted material which is seldom seen and whose existence is therefore denied on Colonoscopy.
I must report that in the process of inspecting the lining of this organ with a colonoscope, a procedure that I have had occasion to perform many times, one does not ordinarily see large residues in the colon. How might this be? How can it be that there are reliable accounts of these casts that are not seen by the endoscopist? I have come to the conclusion that the answer is that, in preparation for endoscopy, the patient invariably is asked to take a strong purgative to clean out the contents of the bowel so the endoscopist can indeed inspect the lining. Almost certainly these purgations remove any material that might have been static in this situation and therefore not observed when the endoscopic inspection is performed.
From Thomas A. Dorman, MD Paracelsus Clinic
I would be interested if anyone else has had similar experiences in overcoming cramps, by increasing the pressure of the injection and taking in enough solution to straighten out any kinks in the colon walls.
