I hope you all enjoyed our great weather in New York today!
It was a welcome break from all the snow we’ve been getting.

Enclosed is an excerpt from an article written by Dr. Morton Walker dealing with gastroenterologist-prescribed colonics:


Gastroenterologist Prescribed Colon Hydrotherapy

Board certified as a gastroenterologist since 1972, Dr. Robert Charm, MD, clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, describes his use of colon hydrotherapy:

“I prescribe colon hydrotherapy by calling upon a superbly trained practitioner in the San Francisco Bay area. She is certified by I-ACT. Also, I’m very impressed by the sophisticated technology as illustrated by the colon hydrotherapy equipment. From my observation, it’s engineered quite well,” affirms the gastroenterologist.

“Frequently while performing colonoscopies, I see that the patient’s (…) diverticular area still contain fecaliths, those small turds remaining in pockets formed on the gut mucosa. They indicate the presence of an unhealthy colon, and over 50% of Americans possess diverticulosis colae. When inflamed, gastroenterologists called them diverticulitis colae, which can be serious by creating fistulas. Some people then will evacuate through their bladders,” Dr. Charm says.


About one third of colonoscopy patients show residual stool in the gut mucosa

“With patients for whom I perform colonoscopies, about one third of them (…) still show residual stools sitting in these gut mucosa pockets. Some have held onto the stool pockets for decades.  A good cleanout by the use of colon hydrotherapy is excellent treatment. I recommend that people undertake colon hydrotherapy for themselves (to) clean out the body’s pipes,” Dr. Robert Charm suggests.

“And by all means, I prefer my patients undergo colon hydrotherapy the morning of a colonoscopy. It’s a safe way to cleanse the gut. It’s a healing technique for the relief of (…) gas and bloating, chronic constipation, abdominal discomfort, and many other GI tract problems.”

“My patient, “Fran”, a former model, age 41, the mother of two, was just too busy to go to the bathroom. For her, defecation was an annoyance. Fran labored under the mistaken illusion that having a bowel movement every three days was normal, and she came to me complaining of feeling logy, fatigued, bloated and abdominally cramped. None of the various drug laxatives had been doing the job for her,” explains Dr. Charm. “Rather, these drug-like laxatives were depleting Fran of her potassium. The psyllium seed, fiber, and other natural agents did not work either. Therefore I recommended that she undertake a series of colon hydrotherapies and start drinking more water. This cleared up her discomfort remarkably fast despite her lifetime of bad habits.”
