How to Have a Happy, Healthy Liver...

Is your Liver Working Properly?  Did you know that without water your liver can not flush toxins out of the body?

We are 70% water and most people do not consume the correct amount of water on a daily basis.  The recommended amount is half your body weight, in other words a 180 lbs person should drink 90 ounces of water every day. 

Your liver “bags up” environmental toxins, like bagging up the trash, in a two-phase system of enzymes:

Phase One: consists of 50 enzymes that oxidize or reduce toxins.  That is, these enzymes either add electrons or remove electrons from toxins to give them an electrical charge.

Phase Two: consists of six different enzymes pathways that conjugate toxins to various organic compounds.  That simply means that these enzymes attach or join (conjugate) the electrically-charged toxin which another compound.  This makes the toxin water soluble so it can be flushed from the body via the kidneys or the colon.   This is why a good supply of water is helpful to the liver.

Foods to Enhance Liver Detoxification

In order to do this job properly these enzymes systems require a wide variety of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids.  So, if you’re feeding your warrior liver a diet of refined and processed foods, don’t be surprised if it wimps out on you when you need protection from chemical toxins.

It’s also important that your liver gets adequate amount of antioxidants.  This is important because the detoxification process produces free radicals that can damage the liver if there aren’t enough antioxidants to protect it while doing its job.

Sour foods are said to tonify the liver. Such as, unsweetened lemon water, black cherry juice, wolfberry and mangosteen.    Thai Go contains many sour fruits that can tonify your liver and provide the antioxidants it requires.

Dark, green leafy vegetables and onions, garlic and cruciferous vegetables are also great liver foods. 

Constipation and your liver

Believed to affect 25 percent of the population at any given time, constipation is different for each individual.  It has to do with the hardness of the stool (bowel movement) rather than how often one is passed. In a healthy individual one or more movement per day is desirable. The quicker toxins are eliminated from our body the less time they have to either ferment or cause other problems.

Mostly constipation is due to poor dietary habits, or by not going to the toilet when nature calls! This results in the bowel reabsorbing water and therefore making the stool hard.

Over a period of time, a layer of toxic waste products may build up on the lining of the sluggish bowel. This build-up can cause inflammation in the bowel, and the toxins are absorbed from the bowel and travel back to the liver via the portal vein. The liver has to work much harder to break down these internally produced toxins and symptoms of liver dysfunction may result. Thus constipation can lead to headaches, abdominal bloating, fatigue, allergies and skin problems.  This is called autointoxication or “a state of being poisoned by toxic substances produced within the body”.  I like to call it “Living in your own toxic soup”!

Colon Hydrotherapy and the Liver

You can’t clean your liver unless first you clean your colon.  Pathways must be open to dump the toxic sludge removed from the liver.  If you are planning to do a liver flush it is absolutely essential to make sure that one does colon hydrotherapy before and after each liver flush. It is extremely important to remove any stones that remain in the colon because once these stones disintegrate or decompose; a lot of toxins are released from these stones and also by the decomposing bacteria.

Not only will colon hydrotherapy open the pathways to allow the waste to be removed but it hydrates the body as well as allowing the colon wall to heal from years of abuse.

Combining Colon Hydrotherapy, adequate intake of pure clean water and diet changes can and has make dramatic changes toward having a Happy Healthy Liver.

Around the turn of the century, doctors blamed all sorts of diseases on constipation. 
It was thought that a slow transit time through the intestines caused toxic waste to 
build up, enter the bloodstream and affect various organs of the body. This theory was 
laid to rest after researchers, using the primitive techniques then available, had 
failed to identify any toxic substances in the blood of constipated sick people. 

However, recent statistics suggest that there may be something valid in this discarded 
theory after all. Physicians Nicholas L. Petrakis and Eileen B. King of the 
University of California, writing in Lancet, have found that women who have two 
or fewer bowel movements per week have four times the risk of breast disease 
(benign or malignant) as women who have one or more bowel movements per day 
have less of a risk. 

The doctors studied more than 5,000 women by employing nipple aspiration (a variation
on the use of the breast pumps nursing mothers use) to get small samples of breast 
fluid, which is normally secreted by these glands. The presence of large numbers of 
abnormal (dysplastic) cells helps to identify women who are at a higher than average
future risk for breast diseases - including breast cancer.

Dr. Petrakis reviewed the history of past researchers who failed to identify constipation
as a factor in the development of malignancies. As a matter of curiosity, he chose to
include questions concerning bowel function in the research protocols developed
for his studies of breast-fluid chemistry and cytology. 

To quote Dr. Petrakis, "We found that 5% of women having one bowel movement
per day would have abnormal dysplastic cells, while 10% of women having fewer 
than one bowel movement a day would have this abnormality and 20% of women 
having two or fewer bowel movements per week would show these dysplastic changes
in cell character of the breast fluid." 

In his view, these findings reactivate turn-of-the-century questions concerning an 
association between constipation and, in this particular instance, breast disease. 
He added a concern that this supposition should not be allowed to create a 
cancer panic among constipated women. 

Dr. Petrakis added that "We found that 70% of the women we tested had 
exogenous (foreign) chemicals in the breast fluid. We don't know why they are there, 
but we do know that the breast cells are in contact with the bloodstream, which will 
contain foreign substances absorbed into the circulation system from the skin, lungs, 
and the gastrointestinal tract." 

Dr. Petrakis also cited dietary consideration of interest to vegetarians, including
the observation that the bowels of people who eat meat contain greater 
amounts of mutagenic substance than do the bowels of those who abstain from 
eating meat. Also cited were observations that the intestinal bacterial flora of 
meat eaters includes certain species that interfere with so-called glucuronide 
linkages necessary to complete the excretions of estrogen delivered to the gut in 
bile. It is theorized by some that such "unlinked" estrogen's are reabsorbed in 
the large bowel of meat eaters, a circumstance leading possible to higher estrogen
levels and a greater change of cancer-producing effects.

This is a compiled list of medical doctors and their reccomendation for Colon Hydrotherapy

Value of Colon Hydrotherapy
Verified by Medical Professionals Prescribing It
Preprinted with Permission from the Townsend Letter for Doctor & Patients
August/September 2000 (#205/206) 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 BC prescribes internal cleansing       for no less that twenty stomach and intestinal complaints.

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.

That descriptive article was the impetus for advancement of a highly beneficial therapeutic method
which has since flourished 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 a person's large bowel without applying
toxic agents of any kind.

A Gastroenterologist Prescribes Colon Hydrotherapy

Board certified as a gastroenterologist since 1972, Robert Charm, MD of Walnut Creek, California, a
clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, combines conventional allopathic medicine
with CAM (complimentary alternative medicine) in his practice. He also continues to make house calls.
" I prescribe colon hydrotherapy by calling upon a superbly trained practitioner of the art in the San Francisco Bay area. She is certified by I-ACT. Also, I am very impressed by the sophisticated technology as illustrated by the colon hydrotherapy equipment. From my observation, it's engineered quite well, "
affirms the gastroenterologist.

" Frequently while performing colonoscopy, I see that the patient is cleaned out from above but below the diverticular still contain fecaliths, those small turds remaining in pocket form on the gut mucosa. 
They indicate the presence of an unhealthy colon, and over 50 percent of Americans possess diverticulosis
colae. When inflamed, gastroenterologist called them diverticulitis colae, which can be serious by
creating fistulas. Some people then will poop through their bladders. Some women actually poop
through the vagina, Dr. Charm says. " With patients for whom I perform colonoscopy, about one third of
them over the age of fifty who are otherwise cleaned above, still show residual stools sitting in these gut
mucosa pockets. Some have held onto the stool pockets for decades. A toxic dumpsite like this is
dangerous for them by the elevated concentration of poisons stored in the dumpsite. Environmental
cancer can develop!

" A good clean out by use of colon hydrotherapy is excellent treatment. Surely I recommend that
people undertake colon hydrotherapy for themselves. Clean out the body's pipes." Dr. Robert Charm
suggests. " And by all means, I prefer my patients to undergo colon hydrotherapy the morning of a
colonoscopy. It's safe way to cleanse the gut. It's healing technique for the relief of irritable bowel
syndrome with gas and bloating, chronic constipation, abdominal discomfort, and many other GI tract

" My patient, Fran Wilson, a former model, now age forty-one, the mother of two, was just too busy to
go to the bathroom. She didn't celebrate having a good bowel movement, which is the thinking of our
society. For her, defecation was an annoyance. Fran labored under the mistaken illusion that pooping
every three days was normal, and she came to me complaining of feeling logy, fatigued, bloated and
abdominally cramped. None of the various drug laxatives had been doing the job for her" explains Dr.
Charm." Rather, these drug-like laxatives were depleting Fran of her potassium. The psyllium seed, fiber,
and other natural agents did not work either. Therefore I recommended that she undertake a series of
colon hydrotherapies and the drinking of more water. This cleared up her discomforts remarkably fast
despite her lifetime of bad habits.

" The lesson to learn is that when one gets the urge to move, you must do so. Being too busy in our
society to give into the need to defecate is wrong. Find a way," advises Dr. Robert Charm. " Some
people don't poop enough! Let's get people thinking about eating and pooping. If these don't occur
together, colon hydrotherapy should be employed.

Cancer Patients Improve from Receiving Colon Treatment

" I have found over the years that cancer patients who are not doing well usual are toxic and not
being cleansed. They certainly are in need of colon hydrotherapy," advises oncologist and homeopath
Douglas Brodie, MD, of Reno, Nevada. Dr. Brodie has developed CAM(complimentary alternative
modalities) methods for treating cancer and other degenerative diseases aimed at strengthening the
immune system. He emphasizes natural and humane approaches to these conditions with colon
hydrotherapy being among them.
  "I do recommend that most of my cancer patients take colon hydrotherapy or "colonic irrigation's"
because they often improve by having such treatment. Liver cancer in particular shows benefit from 
colon hydrotherapy, but any internal tumors show effectual change too," Dr. Brodie says. "It's better than an enema, which is merely a lower bowel cleanse, as opposed to a colonic which is a thorough cleanse of
the entire bowel. It's similar to comparing the diagnostic efficacy of a sigmoidoscopy of the short end of
the bowel to a colonoscopy which takes in the whole bowel. An enema only goes so far. Colon
Hydrotherapy is the best cleansing and detoxifier for the gastrointestinal tract that anybody would want. I
do promote its use.

Colon Hydrotherapy Is Usual for the Patients of W. John Diamond, MD

For W. John Diamond, MD medical director of the Triad Medical Center in Reno, Nevada and coauthor
of that useful consumer text, An Alternative Medicine Definitive Guide to Cancer, colon
hydrotherapy or high colonic irrigation's are usual modalities for which he refers his patients. " For some
patients with chronic constipation or extensive yeast problems, colon hydrotherapy works advantageously
to get rid of the physical load of pathology in the gastrointestinal tract. This treatment stimulates the liver
and gets rid of the debris that's sticking to the mucosa. The last time I referred my patient to take colon
hydrotherapy was just yesterday. There's hardly a week that goes by which does not see me utilize this
fabulous treatment for one or more patients. The colon hydrotherapist in this city of Reno is skilled and
does a fine job.

" Let me describe a particular patient of mine, Mrs. Constance Overmacher, who benefited from colon hydrotherapy," says Dr. Diamond. "this woman at age forty-six has a long history of antibiotic usage for chronic sinusitis. She is a sugarholic to the extent that her food is totally carbohydrates with hardly any protein or fat. She exhibits a variety of symptoms including extreme fatigue, migraine headaches,
irregular menses, chronic constipation, abdominal pain, and yeast growing in the bowel upon testing
EAV(electroacupuncture according to Voll). Presence of the yeast was confirmed by stool culture and
blood tests for yeast antibodies and skin testing."

"For such a complicated case, I tried every kind of treatment that was appropriated, but nothing did
any good. The only program that gave Mrs. Overmacher relief was colon hydrotherapy prescribed for her to receive three times a week. It took me a month to get my patient stable but finally the treatments effect kicked in. The lady did get her bowel cleaned up; she's now experiencing normal stools and I have her following a restrictive protein diet. Her energy is returned, and she has been showing normal menses for the last two months. Her migraines disappeared," Dr. John diamond affirms. " It merely meant that needed to get the woman back to normal bowel function, off antibiotics, and onto probiotics all the time.

Now she takes colon hydrotherapy on a regular once-a-month schedule. Mrs. Overmacher will likely be
forced to stay on her therapeutic program continuously."

Board Certified Gastrointestinal Surgeon Dr. Leonard Smith Endorses Colon Hydrotherapy

Thirty years ago, Leonard Smith, MD, of Gainesville, Florida graduated from medical school and
eventually became board certified in general surgery by the American College of Surgery. For more than twenty-five years Dr. Smith has practiced a specialist in gastrointestinal surgery. He has dealt with all types of colon difficulties, including operations for overcoming colon cancer, colon diverticulitis,
appendicitis, hemorrhoids, and numbers of other internal organ health problems. " I am very well
acquainted with the colons 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 that usual pre surgery solution known as "Colon-Go-Litely." Instead, colon hydrotherapy has the patient avoid this solution's noxious side effect 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 to take care of a sick person's constipation problem. My recommendation for cancer patients is that they should undergo frequent colon hydrotherapy procedures to make sure a 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 tolerated 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 therapy on a prevention basis, become quite surprised at how much waste is removed by
the procedure," Dr. Smith says.
"Without any reservation, I declare that my wish is to see it became an established procedure for
many kinds of gastrointestinal problems. If medical centers, hospitals, and clinics installed colon
hydrotherapy departments, they would find such department just as efficacious for patients as their
present treatment areas which are devoted to physiotherapy," states Leonard Smith, MD" Such is my true belief, and I do endorse this therapeutic program."

Giving colon Hydrotherapy is Standard Procedure of Sharda Sharma, MD

Located in Millburn, New Jersey as a primary care physician for nearly twenty-six years, Sharda
Sharma, MD, dispenses medical care of a multi-disciplinary nature to her patient. 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 rendering care of 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, Mrs. Felicia, a fortytwo-year-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 to twice weekly for thirteen weeks. These treatments solved the constipation problem for Mrs. Felicia. She goes to the toilet as desired without having to sit there for long periods waiting, reading, mediation, or undergoing other mental or physical diversions.

"Colon hydrotherapy is excellent as a treatment for the yeast syndrome. A very anxious fifty-year-old
female, Mrs. Sara Audrey, consulted me because she was running to the toilet every two hours with
either diarrhea or with attempting to find comfort from constipation. It turns out that she had irritable
bowel syndrome complicated by candidiasis. During the administration of colon hydrotherapy I observed that Mrs. Audrey was loaded with Candida albicans. I recognized the white yeast organisms floating through the transparent tube of my 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 twenty-five 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 twenty-five years; however, the colon hydrotherapy equipment has improved immensely. How the equipment works so effectively is nothing short of astounding. Registered with FDA, current colon
hydrotherapy equipment is safe. It contains temperature-controlled water mixing and back flow prevention values, 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 speculae are employed routinely for sterility.

"Undergoing a session of colon hydrotherapy has you experiencing 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.

"During the treatment, most clothing can continue to be worn. In addition the patient is draped, or a
gown is worn to endure modesty. The patient's dignity is always maintained, " Dr. Michael Gerber affirms.
" The benefits of colon hydrotherapy extend all the way from psychiatric improvement to constipation

Conditions responding to Colon Hydrotherapy Cited by Rheumatologist Arthur E. Brawer, MD
Maintaining a rheumatology practice for the past twenty-four years in Long Branch, New Jersey,
Arthur E. Brawer, MD is an enthusiastic exponent of colon hydrotherapy for a variety of health problems, He cites this treatment in his recently published consumer book, Holistic Harmony.
" Silicone breast implant exposure which results in disease symptoms responds very well to colon
hydrotherapy. I am in the center of this silicone breast implant controversy by having consulted with over 500 women from around the world for the toxic environment exposure caused by such implantation. I've given testimony as a expert witness before the United States Congress on this issue along with advising the Department of Health and Human Services, the FDA, and consultants to the President, the Vice president, the Director of Women's Health at the White House, and the United Nations. I use colon hydrotherapy for the treatment of such silicone toxicity, since it does work to chelate silicone out of the body," states Dr. Brawer. "Let me explain!
"From day one of implantation, silicone micromolecules disperse throughout the body because the
pore size ( the porosity) of the envelope or shell enclosing the implant is larger than most of the silicone molecules contained inside. Thus, the disease symptoms derived from silicone toxicity is not dependent on envelope rupture. Symptoms begin immediately! In other words, the molecules of silicone travel through the membrane osmotically and become microdispersed throughout the body by means of the lymphatic system," explains Dr. Brawer.

" Now realize the connective tissue or collagen in each person's body requires silicone as an
essential component in order to provide the body with proper architectural structure such as for tendon, ligaments, nerve sheaths and everything else. Silicone makes up the glue which holds the skin together, gives substance to the organs, act as regulators, signal transmitters, and so forth. It functions as in integral part of metabolism and physiology. Thus, all tissues are dependent on silicone as essential ingredient," Dr. Brawer says. " But given in excess as a leaking silicone breast implant, there is only one place the excess may be dumped or stored by the body-into its connective tissue. When that happens a whole litany of complaints occur: joint pains, dry eyes, fatigue, memory lapses, skin rashes and pigmentation's, chest pains, muscle aches, drug intolerance, odor and smell sensitivity to hair sprays, room fresheners, deodorants, and more (see Disease Indications).

" So the silicone molecules become stuck in the body's glue, and they cannot be removed by use of medications or supplemental nutrients or diet. Only certain techniques may be applied to detoxify the body: colon hydrotherapy is perhaps the best way and also working as detoxifiers are Ayurvedic medicine, hyperthermis, steam baths, saunas, oxygen therapy, and the energy-based therapies such as Reiki therapy and Qigong. Any dietary approach has to be more an exclusionary basis-take the patient off of processed foods and have them eat organic." confirms Dr. Brawer. "But of all the treatments for symptoms coming from silicone breast implants, colon hydrotherapy I find to be one of the mainstays that offer relief."

Disease Indications

"Colon hydrotherapy eliminates from the bowel the repository of accumulated waste material which may disadvantageously get absorbed. If this absorption takes place, it overwhelms the other purification organs such as the liver, the kidney, the skin, and the lungs. The toxin deposition which becomes lodged throughout the body's tissues and cells becomes capable of triggering a variety of illnesses," says rheumatologist Dr. Arthur E. Brawer. " There's lots of them. Some disease indications for colon hydrotherapy responding well are:
Attention Deficit Disorder
Body Order
Brittle Hair
Brittle Nails
Chest Pain
Chronic Fatigue
Cold Hands & Feet
Irritable Bowel
Joint Aches
Memory Lapses
Mouth Sores
Multiple Sclerosis
Muscle Pain
Peptic Ulcer
Peripheral Neuropathies
Poor Posture
Pot Belly
Skin Rashes
Spastic Colon
Toxic Environmental Exposure
Toxic Occupational Exposure

Colon Hydrotherapy is like Cleaning Baked Lasagna from a Pan

According to Pamela Whitney, ND baked lasagna may be used as a metaphor for colon cleansing.  Dr. Whitney, Education Director of the New England Health Institute,  is a naturopathic physician who practices her profession in two locations, Braintree Massachusetts and Stowe, Vermont.  Here is how she describes the physical action of colon hydrotherapy:
“If ever you’ve baked lasagna and then attempted to sanitize the messy, left-over lasagna pan, you know the difficulty with getting it clean.  For sponging such a food caked pan it’s usual for cooks to soak the pan overnight.  Then they find that swabbing it…the next day is easy.  Colon hydrotherapy accomplishes the same ease of cleansing on the inside of one’s bowel.  Using hydrotherapy, the colon’s walls constantly get flushed with clear fluid, which serves to remove mucous plus some of their longstanding, caked-on fecal matter which contains hidden bacteria, parasites, Candida albicans-filled pockets, and other such pathological material.

From its home office located in San Antonio, Texas, literature furnished by the International
Association for Colon Hydrotherapy or I-ACT defines colon hydrotherapy as a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing pure, filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the human waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation thorough natural peristalsis. This flushing process usually is repeated a few times during a therapeutic session.

Colon hydrotherapy is best used in combination with adequate nutrient and fluid intake as well as with exercise. The modern and sophisticated technology applied today, manufactured through compliance with strict FDA guidelines, promotes both safety and sanitation of the procedure.

Dr. Pamela Whitney advises that her healing program for almost any condition frequently involves
prescribing colon hydrotherapy. " I almost always refer my patients to undertake colon cleansing as the first part of my treatment. I do this for purposes of detoxification, since most people possess toxic bowels which may result in either constipation or diarrhea both coming from the same sources of toxicity," she says. "The patient's toxins tend to kick back to their blood streams to perpetuate numerous pathologies such as candidiasis, allergies, chronic fatigue, and other symptoms coming from a recalculation of accumulated physiological poisons. "
" I use the services of at least three skilled colon hydrotherapists who practice near to my two offices.  I don't know of any patient receiving colon hydrotherapy who has not benefited from it. Certainly the treatment will get a sluggish bowel refunctioning again. In my judgment, the action of just one colon hydrotherapy is an experience equivalent to someone undergoing twenty coffee enemas, says Dr. Whiney." What we eat, the processed foods such as bread, pastas, sugars, and refined deserts hit the gastrointestinal tract like a glue-like substances sticks on the walls of one's GI tract to slow down the individual's metabolic rate. thereafter, constipation with inflammation can develop, but colon hydrotherapy solves such a problem."
As is obvious, Dr. Pamela Whitney is a great advocate of colon hydrotherapy, which she prescribes as a standard part of her treatment.

Christopher J. Hussar, DO., DDS, Took Colon Hydrotherapy

From his medical/surgical practice in Reno, Nevada, osteopathic physician and dental cavitation
specialist Christopher J. Hussar, DO,DDS does offer the following personal statement. " I have enjoyed two colon hydrotherapists treatments when, at the time, I was experiencing partial bowel obstruction.

Each colon hydrotherapy had me feeling better. It's my belief that this treatment should be recommended for any person who is having chronic constipation. Then, the local colon hydrotherapist can become a main factor in keeping that individual comfortable. I maintain that one should do whatever it takes to keep up with regular bowel movements. Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and natural laxative which works better than any other type.

"In Reno, I refer my patients who are in need of bowel cleansing to a colon hydrotherapist. The only reason that I don't refer people on a regular basis is because most of them arrive to see me from out of town. therefore, I tell them to use the services of a skilled colon hydrotherapist located in their area so that they can go for treatment often," says Dr. Christopher J. Hussar.

Janet Beaty, N.D. took Training in Colon Hydrotherapy

"My original training in colon hydrotherapy was when I administered it twenty-five years ago as part of my massage therapy program and that training went a lot deeper when I attended Bastyre University. I was on of several instructors in colon hydrotherapy at the naturopathic college," says Janet Beaty, ND whose practice is in West Concord, Massachusetts. "Now I don't own the physical facilities for doing it in my office but I regularly refer patients to a competent nearby colon hydrotherapist.

"My experience with the treatment is totally positive. I refer people to have it when they are
constipated because their colons are not fully emptying and bringing on GI discomforts of some kind. My sense is that the patient must empty out old waste products so that there is no interference with healing modalities," states Dr. Beaty. " I am using colon hydrotherapy as my beginning treatment for detoxification, particularly for patients with congested bowels. While I focus on the gastrointestinal aspects of colon hydrotherapy, I also prescribe it for the treatment of allergies, arthritis, and other health difficulties.

"If I had my druthers, I would get all of the patients with any health problems on colon hydrotherapy.  Why I don't is because it entails the payment of cash-out-of-pocket and some people find the concept too "kinky" even to imagine doing it," Dr. Beaty says. " yet, probably most patients should receive at least one colon hydrotherapy during the course of taking care of themselves. It is a very helpful tool for nearly any patient in order to get the bowel peristalsis to work. An effective technique for stimulation such peristalsis is to start out with giving colon hydrotherapy using warm water and gradually decreasing the water temperature as treatment continues. This lower temperature tends to stimulate the bowel muscles. The cold temperatures cause good peristaltic action for retraining of the bowel.  " The ideal treatment program I follow is that from four to eight weeks the patient receives colon hydrotherapy. This time frame is necessary for unloading a bunch of toxins from the liver.

Colon Hydrotherapy Used by James P. Carter, MD, DrPH

"After conducting a comprehensive digestive stool analysis on any patient suspected of having
dysbiosis (poor intestinal hygiene), I attempt to wipe the bowel clean by prescribing colon hydrotherapy once a week times three. In my medical practice, I employ a registered nurse on staff to administer this treatment, " says James P. Carter, MD, Dr PH, MS on Mandeville, Louisiana. Dr Carter is Professor and Head of the Nutrition Section at Tulane University School of Medicine.  "Also I use colon hydrotherapy as part of an overall detoxification program, and it may be combined with treatment from above as with drinking Epsom salts, but both are not taken on the same day." he advises. " It promotes the second stage of liver detoxification to cause dissolved poisons to come out in the bile as a solvent. The patient's washout at least once a week from below is adjunctive without the Epsom salts.

" Colon hydrotherapy is an excellent detoxifier for the overindulgence of alcohol drinking and drug
addictions of all kinds. Residues of drugs and other agents in the tissues are eliminated with colon
hydrotherapy" states Dr. James P. Carter." It takes away any desire to use drugs or imbibe in alcoholic beverages. colon hydrotherapy should be part of nearly any addict's therapeutic regimen."

Colon Therapy Corrects Constipation

"One of my more significant cases was Tommy, an eight-year-old boy with the most awful
constipation anyone could imagine, " says former general surgeon and emergency medicine specialist Paul Flashner, MD of Wellesley, Massachusetts. Observing their superior results for his patients, Dr. Flashner has more recently adapted his treatment techniques almost completely to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Most definitely, he has incorporated colon hydrotherapy as a regular CAM technique.

"Tommy's constipation was really bad. He never had a bowel movement for a week at a time.
Recognizing the dangers of physiological toxicity, his parents took their son for consultation with
numerous gastroenterologists. The child had been subjected to colonoscopy a dozen times, but nothing could be found as the source of his blockage. Laxatives hardly helped at all. There was no diagnosis except that he suffered severely from constipation," confirms Dr. Flashner. "Then the parents found their way to me so that the boy might undergo examination and treatment one more time. They described their eight-years-olds condition.

"I improved the child's diet and removed all junk foods. Then I instigated an exercise program, had
him drink lots of water, balanced his colonic flora, and added fiber supplements. But most vital for
Tommy's welfare is that he took colon hydrotherapy under my prescription. The beneficial effect was dramatic, for within six months he was experiencing a natural and normal bowel movement every day.

Colon Hydrotherapy Reduces Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Joshua Heinermann, the sixty-six-year-old chief executive officer for Virginia Chemical Corporation of Chesapeake, Virginia, had been suffering severely from prostate gland enlargement (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH). For four years the man's symptoms had been building steadily, and now they were affecting this ability to manage in the administrative position he held. The executive's night time urinary urgency (nocturia) came with such frequency, Mr. Heinermann found himself perpetually fatigued during daytime business meetings. His need to sleep lay on him like a blanket, and he felt as if!__ his mind was encased in cotton batting. Any capability for him to make vital decisions on behalf of his corporation became almost nonexistent. To confront the problem, the CEO finally consulted a urologist located in his city.

In practice for over sixty years as a specialist in solving urological problems for both men and women, Emil S. Sayegh, MD of Chesapeake, Virginia is eighty-eight years of age. Over the six decades of his medical practice, Dr. Sayegh has been consulted by a particularly large number of male clientele who have sought his help in correcting BPH and prostatitis.

"These two common medical difficulties are closely associated with having weak abdominal muscles,"  explains the board certified urologist. " Those men possing flaccid and weak abdominal muscles experience enormous pressures on their bladders which never let up. the supportive muscles and other erectile tissues surrounding the bladder fail to do the jobs required. the pressure of the bladder's rectal sigmoid is so severe that any amount of stool in that areas is going to make urine passage very difficult, whether urine is present or not, the need for these men to void becomes overwhelming."

During the past fifteen years Dr. Sayegh has made use of colon hydrotherapy which solves his
patients' tow particular prostate pathologies almost every time. " Cleaning the colon markedly assists the functioning of the pathological male bladder and prostate organs. Colon hydrotherapy given to involved men at two-week intervals for three times to start and them maintained every four weeks for an unlimited period does solve prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasis," states Emil S. Sayegh, MD. " From my files, I can offer up several hundred case studies which testify to the fact."
