Source: How And When To Be Your Own Doctor

Autointoxication. [1] the accumulations on the bowel wall become a

breeding ground for unhealthy bacterial life forms. The heavy mucus

coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host for putrefaction.

The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins,

poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All

tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances.

Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological

level. _Bernard Jensen, Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management._

[2] All maladies are due to the lack of certain food principles,

such as mineral salts or vitamins, or to the absence of the normal

defenses of the body, such as the natural protective flora. When

this occurs, toxic bacteria invade the lower alimentary canal, and

the poisons thus generated pollute the bloodstream and gradually

deteriorate and destroy every tissue, gland and organ of the body.

_Sir Arbuthnot Lane. _[3] The common cause of gastro-intestinal

indigestion is enervation and overeating When food is not digested,

it becomes a poison. Dr. John.H. Tilden, Impaired Health: Its Cause

and Cure, 1921. [4] a clogging up of the large intestine by a

building up (on) the bowel wall to such an extent that feces can

hardly pass through. autointoxication is a direct result of

intestinal constipation. Faulty nutrition is a major underlying

factor in constipation. The frequency or quantity of fecal

elimination is not an indication of the lack of constipation in the

bowel._ Bernard Jensen, Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management._

I am not a true believer in any single healing method or system. I

find much truth in many schools and use a wide variety of

techniques. The word for my inclination is eclectic.

The most effective medicine in my arsenal is water fasting followed

closely in potency by other, less rigorous detoxifying diets. Colon

cleansing ranks next in healing power. In fact it is difficult to

separate colon cleansing from fasting because detoxification

programs should always be accompanied by colon cleansing. Further

down the scale of efficatiousness comes dietary reform to eliminate

allergic reactions and to present the body with foods it is capable

of digesting without creating toxemia. Last, and usually least in

effectiveness in my arsenal, are orthotropic substances (in the form

of little pills and capsules) commonly known as vitamins or food


Interestingly, acceptance of these methods by my clients runs in

exact opposition to their effectiveness. People prefer taking

vitamins because they seem like the allopaths' pills, taking pills

demands little or no responsibility for change. The least popular

prescription I can write is a monodiet of water for several weeks or

a month. Yet this is my most powerful medicine.

It is possible to resolve many health complaints without fasting,

simply by cleansing the colon and regaining normal lower bowel

function. Colonics take little personal effort and are much easier

to get people to accept than fasting. So I can fully understand how

perfectly honest and ethical naturopaths have developed obsessions

with colon cleansing. Some healers have loudly and repeatedly (and

wrongly) proclaimed that constipation is the sole cause of disease,

and thus, the only real cure for any illness is colon cleansing.

Even though it is possible to have a lot of successes with the

simple (though unpleasant to administer) technique of colon

cleansing, degenerated lower bowels are the only cause of disease. I

prefer to use bowel cleansing as an adjunct to more complete healing

programs. However, old classics of hygiene and even a few new books

strongly make the case for colonics. Some of these books are

entirely one-sided, single-cause single-cure approaches, and sound

convincing to the layperson. For this reason, I think I should take

a few paragraphs and explain why some otherwise well-intentioned

health professionals have overly-advocated colonics (and other

practices as well).
