(E) The theory of treatment upon which colon hydrother py is more historical and intuitive than scientific as there have not been any studies to validate the effectiveness of this modality. However, many cultures and societies believe that a clean colon can improve the health of the individual. This started thousands of years ago with the simple enema and has evolved into the present day colonic. Many people simply report they feel better after a colonic. On the other hand, there is a growing number of health care practitioners that believe in the concept of auto-intoxication. That a sluggish bowel (one that is not regular) allows the body to reabsorb toxins from the colon and become its own toxic waste site. This theory may or may not have validity depending on who you listen to, but we know there is an increased level of toxins in our environment and common sense tells us that anything we can do to assist the body in ridding itself of toxins should have some value.
