This eBook outlines the risks involved with supposed routine colonoscopies. This is data that even your doctor is unlikely to know - yet all of it is from peer-reviewed medical publications.
Jini Patel Thompson gives you practical guidelines to help you make a decision as to whether you really do need to have a colonoscopy done, or not. She also gives you detailed instructions on:
- A gentler, natural form of colonoscopy test prep
- What to do before a colonoscopy to protect your colon
- What to do immediately after a colonoscopy to prevent infection and repair the damage
- What to do for 6 months following to restore and build up your protective gut flora (good bacteria in your gut)
For example, did you know that:
"A common sterilant for colonoscopes (gluteraldehyde) has actually been proven to cause colitis. If you develop any of the following symptoms within 48 hours of having a colonoscopy, it's likely the gluteraldehyde residues on the colonoscope are responsible: Cramps and abdominal pain, tenesmus (painful, urgent straining to defecate), rectal bleeding and in some cases, hemorrhaging."(1)
"Human error also plays a big role in colonoscope contamination. One study observed staff responsible for cleaning colonoscopy apparatus for two years running – and their conclusion was: If the staff do not clean the colonoscope properly prior to disinfection, then no matter what sterilization procedure is in place, the colonoscope remains highly contaminated; and after two years of observation, they discovered a lot of evidence of human error."(2)

If you've been suffering from daily discomfort due to constipation, it's understandable that you're in a hurry to have it go away - and the faster, the better! The good news is that even if you've been living with constipation (for what seems like forever), it is possible to heal it completely.
For those of you who already know me, you know that my emphasis is on natural, holistic healing - which addresses the root cause of a symptom, rather than merely suppressing it. And that's what I show you how to do in this book, Listen To Your Colon, so that you can get not just quick, symptomatic relief, but also heal the long-term, underlying cause of your chronic constipation.
The goal of holistic healing is not to take herbal supplements just to suppress your symptoms (the same way drugs do), but rather to heal the imbalance or dis-ease in your body that is causing the constipation.
For long-term healing, you have to look at the totality of the variables that contribute to constipation, and then make the necessary changes in each area: Diet, stress and emotional factors, mineral deficiency, drug use, nutrient deficiency and gut microflora.
