Colonoscopy Prep....Oh Crap!

Colonoscopy Prep....Oh Crap!
Know matter what kind of prep you're prescribed its not fun guzzling gallons of icky chemicals knowing what will be an uncomfortable end result. The gurgly belly, the bubbles, praying you'll keep down the prep, feeling like an oompa loompa, making sure you have your at home "prep kit": stock of good TP, wipes, cream, new comfortable fuzzy pants, & 100% charged iPad. 
Did You Know: Colorectal Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death and yet early detection can increase the odds of survival significantly. So why are so many people avoiding early detection (e.g. a colonoscopy)? 
A thorough exam of the colon is necessary to detect cancer, precancerous growths or other abnormalities. And yet, a successful colonoscopy depends on having a clear colon to allow for an unobstructed view of the colon wall. Without proper pre-cleansing, the results won't be accurate. Many people resist having a colonoscopy because they do not want to take the harsh chemical laxatives recommended to prepare for the exam. Others find the side effects of these drugs, such as diarrhea, abdominal cramping, nausea and vomiting, to be so unpleasant that they won't return for a follow up.
Question: Is this the only way...or is there a better alternative????
Answer: Colon Hydrotherapy.

Colon Hydrotherapy has been used for years as a comfortable alternative prep for colonoscopies. It is an effective, convenient and gentle process that removes wastes from the entire length of the colon leaving it clean and clear for your exam. Once clients try it, they never go back to the harsher laxative pre-treatment. 
"Recently my doctor scheduled me for a colonoscopy
and after hearing about colon hydrotherapy at HC Wellness,
I decided to try that instead of the prep I went
through last time. I can remember being so sick
from drinking the prep then spending what felt
like days in the bathroom and then feeling so
exhausted afterwards, all I wanted to do was
sleep. This time I did 2 colon hydrotherapy sessions
back-to-back and after I felt rested and ready to go.
Not only was my colon in good health but the doctor
said my colon was nice and clean. I will NEVER go
back to the old, out-of-date method as prep again!"
- Donald B.

Use the following schedule to prepare your bowel for a colonoscopy:
Colon Hydrotherapy Session 1: 7 days prior to exam
Colon Hydrotherapy Session 2: 24 hours prior to exam
Colon Hydrotherapy Session 3: morning prior to the exam
Diet should be as follows:
Eat a fruit, steamed vegetable and/or liquid diet 4 days prior to exam. Foods that leave residue in the body such as meat, cheese and refined carbs (bread, crackers, pasta, etc) should be avoided. Drink purified water; do not drink soda or other carbonated beverages, added gas will only make it more uncomfortable.
