E) The theory of treatment upon which Colon Hydrotherapy is more historical and intuitive than scientific as there have not been any studies to validate the effectiveness of the modality. However, many cultures and societies believe that a clean colon 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. 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. his theory may or may not have validity depending on who you listen to, but we know there is increased level of toxins in our environment and common sense tell us that anything we can do to assist the body of ridding itself of toxins should have some value.
