I've had 2 of them for other reasons than your NP is suggesting. I'm doing it for detox because I'm on a lot of strong medications for Lyme Disease. It is NOT fun, lol. It's not the worst thing I've ever done, but I also have a really sensitive GI tract. If you tend to be constipated, it's probably a great idea. But I have D a lot, so it isn't as much of a relief when I have one.

If you have any specific questions, you can PM me.

I had about six of these, last year, prior to going gluten free. In fact, it was this that eventually led to my celiac disease diagnosis! It IS quite uncomfortable - atrocious ongoing cramps for about 40 minutes - but afterwards, I would just feel amazing. Of course, at this point I was still eating gluten so the amazingness only lasted for so long. But it is so worth it.xo

Wow, Lux thank you for your reply. Good to hear that it does do some good. I have decided to take the plunge and go for it. My NP seems to think that it will be good for me and I have gone every other route to try and get back to normal, why not this?? Lol...I am sure I can live through it if Ilived through the prep for the colonoscopy :-)

Thanks again, and thanks confusedks, i did PM you will a few questions.

Cheers :-P
