Crohn's disease (Regional Enteritis) is an inflammatory also
known as an auto-immune disease,
which usually affects the lower
ileum (but many involve
other parts of the gastrointestinal
tract). The colon is clearly damaged and inflamed which is one of the contraindication for colonic.
a cardiovascular disease characterized
by a sac-like widening of an artery
resulting from weakening of the
surgery is performed to
repair damage to the colon, rectum and anus. Growing scar tissue may occur after this
surgery causing blockages that prevent normal waste elimination. Once
again, Colonic could aggravate the situation.
is the condition resulting
from too many infected diverticula formed over
a long period of time
inside the colon, causing a narrower colon's diameter and resulting in
possible internal bleeding and tissue breakdown. It is a very serious
condition. (Diverticula are mostly common in the sigmoid region of
the colon). The colonic could cause more damage to this irritated area
since there is inflammation and colonic can only be performed when there
is no inflammation.
is an abnormal connection between two
parts of the body that isn't meant to be there, allowing substances
as stools to move from one part to another and cause all sorts of
Fissures are small splits or tears in the anal mucosa
that may cause painful bowel movements
and bleeding. Blood may occur on
the outside of the stool or on the toilet paper, following a bowel
blood pressure not controlled by a Doctor.
blood pressure slows blood pressure, therefore blood vessels are not
contracting sufficiently (often caused by anaemia, so oxygen delivery is
compromised) danger of overload and blood pressure going lower.
blood pressure accelerates blood pressure, therefore blood vessels are
contracting too much. It becomes a danger of blood clotting.
Pregnancy: the colonic helps in soaking off the toxic
waste from the body and gets carried out of the body by the
Colonic's water through the intestinal tract. Filling the colon with
water may put pressure on the foetus potentially damaging it.
haemorrhoids: the veins (internal or external) in the anus
are swollen and dilated, therefore may become painful and
burst causing them to bleed. Once again, a colonic could worsen this condition but most importantly, insertion would be impossible.
