Value of Colon Hydrotherapy Verified by Medical Professionals by Morton Walker, DPM

From the signal stage of history surrounding ancient Egypt, practices of colon hydrotherapy in their most basic form - enemas or clysters - have provided people with internal cleansings adjunctive to their personal external hygiene. The Ebers Papyrus, from the 14th century B.C. prescribes internal cleansing for no less than twenty stomach and intestinal complaints.1

But in the modern era it fell to J. H. Kellogg, MD, of Battle Creek, Michigan, famous for his invention of corn flakes and various techniques of good hygiene, to popularize colon hydrotherapy. This happened from Dr. Kellogg’s publication of his article in the Journal of the American Medical Association praising the procedure’s efficacy for saving a dysfunctional large bowel.2

That descriptive article was the impetus for advancement of a highly beneficial therapeutic method which has since flourished and found medical recognition among enlightened health professionals in Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and North America. Enthusiastic expressions of approval for colon hydrotherapy are undeniable medical endorsements for this significant complementary treatment which removes metabolic waste from the large bowel without applying toxic agents of any kind.

Board Certified Gastrointestinal Surgeon Dr. Leonard Smith Endorses Colon Hydrotherapy
Thirty years ago, Leonard Smith, M.D., of Gainsville, Florida graduated from medical school and eventually became board certified in general surgery by the American College of Surgery. For more than 25 years Dr. Smith has practiced as a specialist in gastrointestinal surgery. He has dealt with all types of colon difficulties, including operations for colon cancer, colon diverticulitis, appendicitis, hemorrhoids, and numbers of other internal organ problems.

"I am very well acquainted with the colon’s functions, and my true belief is that colon hydrotherapy is the perfect cleansing medium for preparing the patient for colonoscopy. It’s a much better way of getting the human colon ready for an operation than having a patient swallow a gallon of that presurgery solution known as ‘Colon-Go-Lytely.’ Instead, colon hydrotherapy allows the patient to avoid this solution’s noxious side effects of vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and other troubles," Dr. Smith says.

“Moreover, seriously ill patients tend to be chronically constipated which results in generalized toxemia. It turns out that colon hydrotherapy is the gentlest and most effective treatment for a constipation problem. My recommendation for cancer patients is that they should undergo frequent colon hydrotherapy procedures to make sure the colon’s toxic burden is being kept at a minimum while their bodies are trying to heal,” affirms Dr. Smith. “While not a substitute for eating a high fiber diet, those cancer patients who take colon hydrotherapy often experience the elimination of their aches and pains, improvement of appetite, and they tolerate a tough healing process better.

“I also believe that normally healthy people will find it valuable to take colon hydrotherapy every couple of months in order to experience how well one feels when the colon is truly empty. It’s a fact that most people fail to fully evacuate the colon, something they don’t realize. People undergoing colon hydrotherapy on a prevention basis, are quite surprised at how much waste is removed by the procedure,” Dr. Smith says.

“Without reservation, my wish is to see it become an established procedure for many kinds of gastrointestinal problems. If medical centers, hospitals, and clinics installed colon hydrotherapy departments, they would find such departments just as efficacious for patients as their present treatment areas which are devoted to physiotherapy,” states Leonard Smith, MD “Such is my belief, and I do endorse this therapeutic program.” 

Giving Colon Hydrotherapy is Standard Procedure for Sharda Sharma, MD
Located in Millburn, New Jersey as a primary care physician for nearly 26 years, Sharda Sharma, M.D., dispenses medical care of a multi-disciplinary nature to her patients. Dr. Sharma employs colon hydrotherapy, chelation therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, Reiki manipulative therapy, and much more. She treats the body as a whole (holistically).

“I have trained and certified colon hydrotherapists working as part of my staff. Under my supervision for the past year-and-a-half they have been treating constipation, abdominal cramps, allergies, and a variety of other conditions, including ten patients with hepatitis C. These hepatitis patients respond to colon hydrotherapy and do well,” assures Dr. Sharma. “For instance, Felicia, a 42 year-old high school teacher, had suffered with constipation – no bowel movements for six days at a stretch. She was bloated, fatigued, lethargic, headachy, and crampy. My treatment choice for her was enzyme supplements and colon hydrotherapy twice weekly for thirteen weeks. These treatments solved the constipation problem for Felicia.

“Colon hydrotherapy is excellent as a treatment for the yeast syndrome. 
A very anxious 50 year-old female, Sara Audrey, consulted me because she was running to the toilet every two hours with either diarrhea or attempting to find relief from constipation. It turns out that she had irritable bowel syndrome complicated by candidiasis. During the administration of colon hydrotherapy, I observed that she was loaded with Candida albicans. I recognized the white yeast organisms floating through the transparent tube of the colon flushing device,” says Dr. Sharma. “But the patient is now in fine shape – much relieved. She has good bowel movements twice daily with no gas. This is typical of almost all patients undergoing colon hydrotherapy.”

Dr. Michael Gerber Uses Colon Hydrotherapy Routinely
“I’ve had a colon hydrotherapy device in my office for 25 years,” states Michael Gerber, MD, of Reno, Nevada. “My present staff person who dispenses colon hydrotherapy under my jurisdiction uses it for all types of patient difficulties. The basic concepts of the science has not changed much in the last 25 years; however, the colon hydrotherapy equipment has improved immensely. How the equipment works so effectively is nothing short of astounding. Registered with the FDA, current colon hydrotherapy equipment is safe. It contains temperature-controlled water mixing and back flow prevention valves, plus pressure and temperature sensors, and built-in chemical sanitizing units. Water purification units frequently are installed as well. Disposable single-use rectal tubes, and/or speculate are employed routinely for sterility.

“Undergoing a session of colon hydrotherapy allows comfort and cleansing with no toxicity. Techniques utilized allow a small amount of water to flow into the colon gently stimulating the colon’s natural peristaltic action to release softened waste,” Dr. Gerber advises. “The inflow of a small amount of water and the release of waste may be repeated again and again. The removal of such waste encourages better colon function and elimination.

“The benefits of colon hydrotherapy extend all the way from psychiatric improvement to constipation elimination,” Dr. Michael Gerber affirms.
