Probiotic Retention Enema

OKay, I just had to post this account from Jay Baluk (a.k.a. CROHNSBOY) who recently tried Jini’s Probiotic Retention Enema.

I love Jay because he’s SO candid and honest and blunt. And the photo on his post alone is so funny I just had to point you to it.

But, WARNING: If you’re a very proper, straight-laced, kind of person, then it’s probably best if you give CrohnsBoy a miss. For me, I love Jay’s irreverent style and hope he never changes!

And if you haven’t tried Jini’s Probiotic Retention Enema yet, maybe Jay’s story will inspire you. A probiotic retention enema is the fastest way to implant a mega-dose of beneficial bacteria straight into the colon – and lower part of the small intestine. In Jay’s own words:
I wrote a BLOG about your enema stuff etc. It really is nothing short of amazing! I think that alone could pull most people out of their flares.

In the next few weeks I am going to start taking the healthy trinity if all goes well. As I think these will benefit me a lot as they get a lot of good bacteria into your gut.

I feel like 90% today tenderness is slightly present but will go away within next few days. I’m glad I was able to learn first hand how that enema can heal you wow!

However, as Jay experienced, either ramp-up the dosage slowly, or watch out for the die-off (Herxheimer Reaction) effect.

I’m sorry I can’t give you quick instructions here for how to implement Jini’s Probiotic Retention Enema – the probiotic sections in my two books; Listen To Your Gut and Listen To Your IBS are over 30 pages long. This is because people with IBD (and severe IBS) need a good understanding of probiotics before they start dosing. If they don’t have all the detailed information on what to look for, how to proceed, etc. they risk triggering a flare. I do offer a complimentary Probiotic Report to get you started in this area of treatment. But for full and complete instructions, you really do need to get one of the books – remember, they both come with a 1 year guarantee (including return postage) so the risk is pretty minimal to try it out.

STOP PRESS!!!!

Okay SO MANY people have requested the Probiotic Retention Enema instructions (and my Wild Oregano Oil Protocol) I have now made both of these available as an E-BOOK. So just click here and I’ll send you both Jini’s Probiotic Retention Enema and Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol, in E-book format, for only $4.95

For those of you who haven’t heard about these protocols before, here’s what each of them does:

Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol

This protocol is based on Inflammatory Bowel Disease being an infectious disease (or having an infectious component). Think of how often gastroenterologists prescribe antibiotics like Cipro and Flagyl/Metronidazole – sound familiar?

There are two ways to eliminate infectious microorganisms: Antimicrobial drugs or substances, or high doses of probiotics. Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol is unique in that it combines the two methods, using 100% natural substances, for maximum effectiveness in both eradicating infectious microorganisms, maintaining a healthy bacterial flora during antimicrobial supplementation, and maintaining a healthy gut environment ongoing, for continued long-term health.

This 3-Phase protocol is designed to eliminate infectious microorganisms (like mycobacterium, fungi, bacteria, yeast, viruses, parasites, etc.), provide a moderate level of detoxification, and restore beneficial gut flora. By healing the infection we also heal inflammation. Other supplements referred to in my Listen To Your Gut book (such as MucosaHeal, George’s ‘Always Active’ Aloe Vera Juice, L-Glutamine, etc.) are then used to heal ulceration, bleeding, and repair the intestinal wall and mucosal lining.

Jini’s Probiotic Retention Enema

This retention enema, which delivers very high dose probiotics directly to your colon (and lower part of your ileum) can provide dramatic healing results. As the name suggests, this is not a cleansing or flushing enema, but rather it is an implant or retention enema – where the goal is to hold the mixture in your colon until the liquid is completely absorbed.

Many people use Jini’s Probiotic Retention Enema during severe inflammation and bleeding for quick healing, whilst others prefer to wait until things have calmed down a bit and they’re tolerating the probiotics well orally first. You really have to just follow your own body wisdom (intuition) on when would be best for you. Even people who have not seen great results from oral probiotic supplementation (it takes longer and can be more difficult to colonize via oral supplementation) see significant symptom clearing following this retention enema.

Enjoy!
Jini

  1. Great Website can’t find the enema directions can u explain. I have recently found out I had crohns changed my life. I told my doctor I’m not that person….He informed me that my whole colon would have to be removed they tried every thing until we used Remicaid it worked I left the hospital with my whole colon. I continued a couple of treatments but, I knew if I ate correctly and stuck to a strict diet I could heal myself. My doctor however was not convinced and reported that I was “Uncompliant”. I have not had any flair ups since only I cannot get rid of the swelling in my stomach. Any suggestions??? Thanx! Shannon



  2. I cant find whats in the probiotic retention enema, would you please tell me where I can find this info. Can this be found in the local GNC?



  3. I too am looking for the info of how and what or the how to for the enema where do i find it? Thanks



  4. I think I might of found the answer. I guess I need to buy your books to understand the whole process and that is where I will find out how to buy it or make it. Let me know if I am on the right track. Thanks Tacy



  5. Hi Tacy and Dena, Until now, you had to buy my Listen To Your Gut book to get the info for the Probiotic Retention Enema. However, Jay Baluk (CrohnsBoy) wrote me that he had so many people who did NOT want to buy the book, they JUST wanted the Probiotic Retention Enema and Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Prootocol – that I have now prepared an Ebook with just these protocols in it.

    thanks,
    Jini



  6. I would really love to get a copy of the WOO protocol. I am a German 22 years old female suffering from colitis and my life is a hell .I have been following this website for so long but can’t get your book over here. I am really so frustrated with myself and this disease and see no hope. Would it be possible to get a free Woo protocol since i am a student and really don’t have the money since I already need to pay for many of the supplements that I ordered from the USA to be shipped here.
    Please help me in my desperate situation



  7. Hi Jini
    I got your email regarding Oil of Oregano thank you. I already have your free report on Oil of Oregano but I couldn’t find the answer to my question which is – if I take Oil of Oregano for a digestive system problem how long do I have to take it to give it a reasonable amount of time to work?
    Steve



  8. Hi Steve, the e-book in the post above has all the answers to your question and more! Basically, it depends on what you’re infected with. So the duration for Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol is about 3 weeks – but you may have to cycle on and off it – depending on what you’re infected with. You keep cycling on and off – with breaks in between – until you’re clear of symptoms.

    So, how it takes to work, depends on what your problems are and what you’re infected with, and how long you’ve had this (how entrenched is it). So you get started (but you MUST combine with high dose probiotics) and see how it goes.



  9. Jini
    Thanks for the answer.
    What am I infected with? Well that is the real unknown problem. I have had 6 stool tests and they were all clear as were many blood tests. I have not been diagnosed with IBS but there are some similarities. So for example, when you treat someone with IBS how long do you use Oil of Oregano for please?
    Steve



  10. There are bugs like mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis (MAP) which are bacterial-fungal hybrids and can only be detected by testing for their DNA.

    So, I repeat, you just have to get started on the Protocol and keep cycling on and off it for as long as you need to. If you have MAP, they have a 2-3 year lifecycle, where they go active (you kill them) then dormant. Then 2-3 months later they become active again, so you need to go back on the protocol and kill the next batch. And so on.

    So you do the protocol for the 2-3 week duration, followed by high dose probiotics and who knows? One round may be all you need…



  11. Jini
    Sorry, maybe I am being dumb but let’s suppose that someone doesn’t have MAP. Let’s suppose they have Ulcerative Colitis or IBS and nobody knows if they have a pathogen. Do they keep taking Oil of Oregano forwever in the hope they will get better, or do they just take it for say 3 weeks and if no improvement one can assume they do not have an infection?
    I have got your Oil of Oregano and Probiotic Retention Protocol and it says to take it until the infection is resolved. But people with Ulcerative Colitis and IBS do not know if they have an infection or not. If they don’t have an infection and they follow the protocol they will end up taking it indefinitely. Considering that you say that Oil of Oregano is as strong as the antibiotic vancomycin perhaps it is not a good idea to take it for so long and this is my concern. I am taking high dose probiotics plus retention enemas but of course nobody knows yet how successful these are at re-populating the gut.
    I asked the owner of a company which supplies Oil of Oregano how long should one take it orally to see if it would be beneficial or not and he said “two weeks”, but I go the impression that he didn’t really know.
    I don’t think a doctor would expect someone to take anitbiotics forever in the hope that it might work or not. I think there would be a specific time period.
    Sorry about this repeated question but this is a concern to me and no doubt others who visit your site.
    Regards
    Steve



  12. STEVE – Okay, sorry, I get now where the sticking point is:

    1. It’s very important to keep in mind that Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol is NOT just wild oregano – the combination (and timing) WITH the probiotics is key.

    2. Normally, people start to see an improvement in symptoms within 3-4 days and by 1 week for sure. You’re correct, if you see no positive changes, after 1 week, then that is likely not your problem (or solution).

    3. Natural healing progresses most rapidly if you can address ALL of your symptoms – that way you can benefit from the synergy. This is why Listen To Your Gut is almost 500 pages long and the Workbook on the CD-Rom takes you through it chapter by chapter, so by the end you have a customized treatment protocol based on YOUR particular symptoms.

    For example, one person with IBS may have a strong, or primarily infective component. But for another person, their main contributors are diet and stress (a job they hate, a destroying relationship – something big).

    Anyway, getting back to the wild oregano – the reason most people say two weeks is because beyond that, you really need to take probiotics to replace bacteria getting killed off. Same way EVERYONE SHOULD take probiotics after drug antibiotic usage.

    hope that nails it for you. Thanks for persevering!

    p.s. One last thing – make sure you are taking your probiotics at least 2 hours away from your wild oregano.



  13. p.p.s. My answer above of 1 week is assuming that there is no Herxheimer Reaction going on (as I wrote you in the first email on FB). If there is a Herx. / die-off of pathogens effect going on, that in itself usually lasts 1 – 2 weeks. Then AFTER that is when you see the improvement.

    Actually, I’m glad we have had this exchange below the blog post – because this exchange is a prime example of why I held out so long before making only a piece of the info in LTYG available. It really is best if you read the whole book and get a good understanding of how all the various pieces work together first. Not only does this speed your learning curve, it also shortens the frustration.

    best,
    Jini



  14. NEELA – we have shipped 100′s of copies of Listen To Your Gut to Germany.

    Please see my FREE STUFF page for all the things you can get free copies of. Also free is my newsletter, blog subscription and Forum at http://www.JiniPatelThompson.com – just do a keyword search on any topic and there is tons of advice there.



  15. Jini, I have the ebook & your book “Listen to Your Gut” and just started using Trinity but I still would like to take the Wild Oregano OIl but I’m currently taking 3 prescription drugs. Can I still start the Wild Oregano Oil??

    Ken



  16. Ken – well the concern is to not overload your liver. So I guess the question would be: If you weren’t taking the wild oregano, would you take an antibiotic? In that case, the wild oregano is less damaging than an antibiotic.

    Also, we don’t know the health or capacity of your liver, so the only way is to test it and see.

    By the way, if you have Listen To Your Gut, you don’t need to buy the ebook (above) as the information is already contained in LTYG – contact us for a refund.



  17. Jini, I guess I didn’t make myself clear. I’m not taking antibiotics
    but taking Flomax (Tamaulosin) .4mg for the prostate; Zocor (Simvastatin) 20mg
    for the heart; Levothyarocxine .025 for the thyroid; & Lisinopril 10mg for the heart.
    I lost count the first email and the actual count total is 4 drugs. I’m 80 years old and I also have bradycardia (low heart rate). I guess wild oregano is out of the question?! Also, thanks for the info on the refund…..

  18. I am both soy and lactose intolerant and cant take the Natren probiotocs because they contain soy. Are there any alternativs, others must have run into this problem, soy is a common allergin. What else can I take? Please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Lily



  19. I found out that the mixed tocophyrls in the Natren produces are not made from soy but from sunflower oil. There non dairy probiotics are cultured on garbanzo beans!! Good to find a company who thinks of everything when it comes to allergens or intolerances.
    Thanks
    LIly



  20. My husband who has crohns doesn’t want to do an enema himself although I think he really need to. Does anyone know how can make probiotics inserts with natren probiotics? I read somewhere that a man does his own inserts using natren but am not sure how he do it? I live in Singapore, do you know any doctor who will do a probiotics enema. Coffee enema is common here but not probiotics. Thanks



  21. CASSANDRA – he can insert the Natren capsules (but not the Healthy Trinity capsules as they are enteric-coated) into his rectum and see if he can retain them until they dissolve. The other solution is to use a baby enema and just inject a small amount at a time, then maybe do it daily or every 2nd day.

    Any practitioner who can administer a coffee enema or a colonic (and I know there are colon hydroptherapists and naturopathic doctors in Singapore as I used to live there) can administer the probiotic retention enema – you just need to give them the instructions, OR mix it up for them, ready to go in the enema bag.

  26. Is it safe to do probiotic or oil of oregano enemas in pregnancy? I am in my first trimester (week 11) and unfortunately suffered from a c.diff infection. They treated me with metronidazole, which was AWFUL to take when I was already nauseous. I ended up in hospital with IV antibiotics for 10 days–just so I could keep them down. I KNOW it’s not gone. I’ve been out for a week, and my bowels are so abnormal & irritated. I’ve been searching the internet for probiotic enemas (sounds a bit more pleasant that stool transplant). I’m pounding the oral probiotics, but I just keep thinking getting some probiotics into the colon is likely best achieved, well, via the colon. I just don’t know how safe it it for my baby, as I know enema stimulation could cause uterine contraction in the first trimester. ANY THOUGHTS?



  27. TRACEY – if you use a smaller amount of liquid, say 1/2 cup to start for Jini’s Probiotic Retention Enema, and flow it in VERY slowly, it may be fine. Best to check with your doctor as I don’t know your history or situation.



  28. Hi Jini. I have tried the Probiotic Retention Enema recently, and found it immensely helpful for a colitis flare. I am, however, still experiencing mild symptoms. My question: how often do you suggest repeating the procedure? And how long do you suggest waiting to repeat the procedure? And thank you so much for your thoughtful insights!



  29. Hi Seth,

    We have some customers who do the enema as often as on a daily basis until their symptoms have subsided but it all comes down to what you feel you can deal with. If you’re more comfortable with oral probiotic supplementation, you can always do that daily and then do the enema once per week if that’s more manageable.

    Kind regards,

  30. Has anyone tried the probiotic retention enema for a c. difficile infection. My boyfriend has been plagued with this infection for 15 months. It recurs immediately after he stops taking his oral vancomyacin, regardless of how gradually he tapers off of it, so he’s taking it indefinitely now. To complicate matters, he has had crohn’s for more than 20 years, and has only a j-pouch left of his colon. He was taking Humira for the crohn’s, but stopped several months ago. Fortunately, the crohn’s has been in remission. His Drs. are out of ideas, and are recommending removing the J-pouch & living with a colostomy bag for the rest of his life; he is only 42 years old. His infectious disease Dr. gave him vancomyacin enemas when he was in the hospital, & they helped stop the infection from progressing. I was curious if a strong probiotic enema could help outnumber the c.diff spores with good bacteria.



  31. Lena, I think the first step is to see whether your boyfriend is even ready to take charge of his health.

    If he is, then he will need to spend some time educating and researching natural protocols as he has quite a severe case by now.

    I would start by investigating this Probiotic Retention Enema and perhaps combining it with fecal infusion – although he may need to contact either Bianca James or Dr. Thomas Borody to see whether the fecal infusion would be a good idea with no colon.

    Alternatively, he could book with Dr. Paul Goldberg, who has access to a lot of advanced diagnostics.

    More on all of these here:

    http://shoppe.listentoyourgut.com/private-health-consults/

    Having said all that, yes, we have heard from people who have healed their C. difficile infection using my protocols – but I’m not sure if they had been on as many drugs as your boyfriend (drugs cause a lot of collateral damage) and I believe they all had a colon.



  32. Hi Justin & Jini,

    What’s a good procedure for “ramping up” the probiotic dosage in the retention enema so as to avoid the die-off effect? I don’t recall seeing that in “Listen to your Gut”. Is there a minimum dose to be at all effective? Is it absolutely necessary to clean out the colon first at the lower doses?



  33. Hi Garth,

    If you’re concerned about die off, you could always just supplement orally for 1-4 weeks (depending on how quickly the die off effects subside) as that would be a adequate ramp up before doing your first enema.

    Kind regards,
    Justin

  34. Jini
    When we take oil of oregano drops, sometimes when we have open ulcers, it definitely irritates them

    But in your protocol you advise to take few drops under the tongue.

    I used to take them like 5-10 drops in a cup of water. But it will aggravate the ulcers.When I have flare ups I can see immediate bowel movements with blood..

    please advise..I am confused in following your oil of oregano protocol when we have inflammation in my colon.

    thanks
    prasanna



  35. Hi Prasanna,

    Jini’s Absorb Plus product is actually quite high in carbohydrates so, if you’re able to consume that without issue, then high carb counts shouldn’t be a problem.
