Though it's referred to in several ways, I'll use colonic irrigation. Yes, this is a procedure where a tube is stuck up your butt and you're cleaned-out, I guess you could say. Yep, I guess you could say it's an enema on steroids.
A few years ago, I asked one of our local TV stations to do a story on this... Of course, I got no response. At the time, I'd found a place locally, here in Virginia Beach, that had a heck of an ad, extolling the benefits.
As I best remember, the ad even mentioned helping your hearing and eye sight, and many other things, of course.
On the other side of the isle, so to speak, are horror stories of perforations and horrible physical problems and the occasional death after this so-called procedure.
The Virginia Board of Medicine, the agency that licenses doctors, counselors, nurses and so on said they had nothing to do with the licensing of folks who stick tubes up your butt.
Surely, some agency in the state is looking out for us, at least ostensibly. Well, the State Board of Health said, no, they had nothing to do with people sticking tubes up other people's butts.
Surely, if the SBofM and the State Health Department are not regulating this, it must fall on the local health department. Well, according to the Virginia Beach Health Department, no, they have nothing to do with the licensing or overseeing of the folks who do this.
Let's see if I have this right? There are people in our state who are sticking tubes up the butts of people, at best a risky thing to do, and it offers no benefits. Yes, no benefits and several ways that it can be harmful. But, that's fine, keep doing it. However, you better not open a barber shop and cut hair without a license.
If for whatever reason you decide this is for you, please at least look around and seek information from places that are not trying to sell you something. If nothing more, ask your doctor what they think about having this done.
What follows are a few quotes, if you will, from a few Websites that promote the use of colonic irrigation.
