Treatment Method

In colon therapy, the large intestine, or colon, is cleansed with liquid. Plastic tubes are placed in the rectum, and a solution, which may be water or water mixed with herbs, coffee, or enzymes, is then passed through the tubing and into the colon. The solution is eventually passed out through one of the tubes in the rectum. Although an ordinary enema generally uses about 1 quart of water, a session of colon therapy may use 20 or more gallons of water. Colon therapy sessions last approximately 1 hour.

Colon therapy is claimed to be beneficial because it involves "detoxification." It is believed that waste material on the walls of the intestine is toxic and that this material is absorbed into the bloodstream and produces disease. This toxic material is removed through colonic irrigation, and beneficial effects are allegedly produced.
