I truly understand where you are coming from. The colonoscopy prep was the worse for me, too. Not the procedure but actual prep I was so afraid of.

I couldn?t tolerate any of the PEGs powders, and I couldn?t tolerate any of the liquids. Then I used bisacodyl and that felt like a painful balloon burst in the stomach. Afterwards, I couldn't normally go for weeks.

I also wander if it makes sense to keep on doing colonoscopy when it takes so long to get back to what?s considered normal for me??

Hello and thank you for submitting this question,

I know how frustrating, painful and sickening colonoscopy preparation can be. I know it from my own experience and I know it from what so many of my patients have told me.

I hated every minute of it. I was also so dehydrated that my husband called an ambulance for me years ago. This was one of many issues that I had with conventional medical treatment for Crohn's disease. I rebelled and was looking for natural healing options and that's where I am now.

There is no right or wrong advice for you. Some of my patients stopped going for colonoscopies because they found some serious studies suggesting that the risk associated with colonoscopies is greater than the benefit. I can't tell them what to do. But what I can do is recommend more natural GI healing. I helped my Crohn's with Functional medicine and being a registered pharmacist I studied it myself and now I practice it too. If you would like an appointment with me call my office 1-800-557-8039.

We can Skype or speak on the phone. I can send you home test kits for saliva, stool and urine and we will get to the bottom of your underlying cause.

I wish you great health!
