(E) The theory of treatment upon which colon hydrotherapy is more historical and intuitive than scientific as there have not been any studies (allowed) to validate the effectiveness of this modality. However, good sense indicates hydration of the body through the large intestine can enhance 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, maybe due to hydration by osmosis or the release of the bowel contents. On the other hand, there is a growing number of health care practitioners that some believe in the idea of autointoxication, that a sluggish bowel allows the body to reabsorb toxins from the colon. 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 logic tells us that anything we can do to assist the body in ridding itself of toxins should and does have some value.
