How do you know when your colon is clean?
During colonics the water is sent all the way up the descending colon, through the transverse colon and down the ascending colon to reach the cecum area. If the colon is thoroughly cleansed, it will release a product from the small intestine, called chyme. When the cecum flush exits the waste pipe, we can confidently say that the colon is clean.
