probiotic rectal implants, anyone tried it?

Postby atlantis » Thu Feb 28, 2013 8:22 am

Apparently this can b done after colonic irrigation, they then place a bulb of probiotics high up in your colon don't know if I'm brave enough to try it , but might b more effective as acid in stomach can destroy probiotics taken orally . Has anyone given this a go ?

I have not tried it but I think the idea possibly has some appeal. The colon is where most of the odours are generated, especially the distal colon. But then I wonder that probiotics taken orally should get there anyway (many are acid resistant now). At the moment I take prebiotics in the hope they feed my own colon 'good guys' (mainly bifidobacteria, it seems to me)
