Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy
View of the Internal of the Colon


- Hello, I am scheduled for a colonoscopy ...

... I was told not to take any supplements, vitamins etc, seven days prior to the procedure. I have been regularly consuming 2 ounces daily of Aloe Vera juice concentrate. Do you think I should consider this a 'supplement' and discontinue it's use also or would it be safe to continue on a daily basis?

Strato's answer:

Hello AlvejuBeco, thanks for asking and I hope from my heart that there would be not disturbing findings from colonoscopy. As I have mentioned in another answer, I have not studied medicine and all my answers are based on my personal experience, experiences of other reliable people and in bibliography research. Since I am not a doctor and I do not know exactly the general state of your health, you should consult your physician before any final decision on taking or not Aloe Vera or other supplements.

However, here is my answer to your question:

The key points to a colonoscopy first is, to be the colon clean, ie not to exist remnants of food and secondly not to be colored by the natural color which is present in certain foods or juices so the doctor can see clearly the state of the internal of the colon.

If there are remnants or color, the doctor can not clearly distinguish the inside of the colon and you will be obliged to redo colonoscopy, following this time more closely the given diet. Aloe Vera is a nutritional supplement but it is a natural supplement, not an artificial one, and the synergistic action of its components neutralizes the side effects of each separate component.

Aloe can replace all the nutrients will be missing from your diet these seven days prior to the procedure and can cleanse the colon of undigested food. But because Aloe Vera contains minerals and especially iron, which is likely to shade the inside of the colon is better, if not seven days but at least the last three - four days not to drink Aloe Vera juice.

Of course, after the colonoscopy you can safely continue drinking aloe juice daily.

Joy and Health,

milk thistle before Colonoscopy?
by: Anonymous

thanks for your help here. I'm due a colonscopy tomorrow and would prefer to rid my colon of any excess particles naturally instead of taking the Klean prep if it contains chemicals. For example do you know anything about 'Polyethylene glycol 3350 '? I have aloe that's colourless but appreciate that the iron content may colour my intestines. Would you recommend milk thistle? Thanks for all your advice! = )

Well,

Colonoscopy is a medical proccess and you must follow exactly doctor's advices.

Polyethylene glycol 3350 is used to treat occasional constipation and it is in a class of medications called osmotic laxatives. It works by causing water to be retained with the stool, increasing the number of bowel movements and softening stool so it is easier to pass. It may take 2 to 4 days for polyethylene glycol 3350 to produce a bowel movement.

About milk thistle before Colonoscopy, I don't know many things, but I recommend not to use it if you are scheduled for a colonoscopy tommorow.

Joy and Health!

Thank you Aloe expert!

Just a wee word of thanks for your prompt reply re milk thistle. I'm glad I went to the pharmacy now!! The smallest room in my house is my new hang out = o but I'm glad the Klean prep is clearing out my system. For anyone wondering, the taste isnt bad at all- a little usual, kind of like vanilla salt if you can imagine that! I'll have the cleanest colon in Ireland by the end of it!!!
I've always loved and sought the most natural way of taking care of my body, mind and spirit and recently became a Forever Living distributor having loved the results. Your advice is much appreciated too so thank you for being such a wealth of information about what I'm loving!
Joy & Health to you also!
