Dear Reader
These colonic irrigations are usually performed by clinics. You will have to phone around a bit. I am not convinced that this is a good idea because it destroys the 'good bugs' in your colon along with cleaning out the 'bad bugs', so I would rather use a high-fibre diet, drink plenty of water (2 litre a day) and take 'good bugs' in the form of a supplement like 'Bifidoforte or Bifdoflora' (buy at health shop).
Take great care
