About a year ago January, Hobbit and I decided to go for detox at Yanhee International Hospital. Detox or colon irrigation, according to Yanhee website, is a safe and painless method of cleansing the colon with 25 liters of warm purified water with 1 liter of water one at a time, which slowly released into the stomach via sterile tube inserted into the rectum 2 inches deep. While 1 liter of water is released into the intestines one at a time until such time that all the 25 liters of water is consumed. The patient would expel all the fecal matters out of the body through the rectum. This procedure is repeatedly done until such time that all the waste products from within is completely eliminated.
Yanhee is situated Charasanitwong road at Bang-O and it is quite a drive from the main city. This hospital is well known for its cosmetic/beauty surgery and is setting the standard for not just Thai plastic surgery, but World-Class plastic surgery with ISO 9000 certification. Sex change anyone? This hospital provides the service. :)
As soon as we arrived Yanhee by taxi, we noticed that the hospital is filled with people. Most of the staffs there are Thai but surprisingly there are a lot of Philippinos too! We were to provide our information and passports at the registration desk and were led to the detox department. I forgot which floor was it exactly. Hobbit and I then had to see the doctor and discuss about the pros and cons about detox and what type of detox we opted for. The doctor advised us to at least repeat the process for at least 3 times but until now we only had the opportunity to do it once.
two beds which has a separator so we wouldn't peep on each other while detoxing, tv set that you could watch while the process is on, a nice shower room and hospital clothes to wear while detoxing.
eeky to say! However, when the first round of water filled my stomach, I thought my tummy was going to burst! Finishing the 25L was quite hard but hey, we made it with lots of giggles, squirkings and amusements! When we were done, we took our shower, was given some sort of a herbal tea to drink, paid 900B and got a bottle of fiber supplements. We left starving! Haha!
