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)
