The Political Aspects of Enemas and Colonics

Sep 15, 2008
Colon irrigation treatments are extensively popular in the world of naturopathic medicine despite experiencing substantial scepticism from the orthodox medical community. The allopathic system of treatment has indeed produced significant improvement in the field of curing infectious disease. However, the prescribed drugs tend to be expensive and have the tendency to be abused, leading to addiction to certain medications. Thus, other people started looking for other means to become better. Most, on their quest for alternative healing, rediscovers that natural methods are less costly. Additionally, with proper administration these alternative treatments tend to be effective and hold lesser adverse addictive effects. In fact, naturopathic treatments can efficiently detoxify the body.

Colon cleansing has been a practice since ancient times in Egypt, Greece, Africa, Babylonia, and India as a medical treatment to cure sickness. These people believed that the colon is the main source of the toxins that pollute the body and cause sickness. Thus, they found it logical that if the body was emptied to those toxins that linger in the bowel, then the sickness will go away. This theory was later termed as autointoxication.

Around the 17th and 18th century, the treatment became widespread in the Western world. As a matter of fact, the treatment was given annually to patients. Initially, it was a preferred cure of the physicians of that time. Esteemed physicians, including that of the royalties, were advocates of this cleansing procedure. But in the long run, it became a lucrative business especially to non-medical practitioners.

Also, political thinking further isolated the practice of colonics from being fairly accepted by orthodox medicine due to the aggressive marketing methods of lay practitioners. These people made excessive claims which earned critical reactions from conventional medicine.

To sum it all up, modern medical attitude regarding colon hydrotherapy suffers from 1) the insufficient medical evidence concerning the efficacy of colon cleansing in treating diseases, 2) the change in ideology of the medical profession, 3) the political reaction against non-medical practitioners. Nonetheless, colonic irrigation still prevails as a therapy. There are physicians who cannot easily dismiss the health merits of the procedure.

However, it should be noted that colon hydrotherapy is advisable only when trained personnel are administering the procedure. There are many licensed clinics in almost every part of the world. Why jeopardize your health and safety when you can go to a licensed clinic in Maui, Hawaii or Copenhagen, Denmark? There are several colonic irrigation clinics all over the world but it is important that you find one with hygienic facility and diligent therapies so as to avoid health complications.
