For W. John Diamond, M.D., medical director of the Triad Medical Center in Reno, Nevada and coauthor of that useful consumer text, An Alternative Medicine Definitive Guide to Cancer, colon hydrotherapy or high colonic irrigations are usual modalities for which he refers his patients. “For some patients with chronic constipation or extensive yeast problems, colon hydrotherapy works advantageously to get rid of the physical load of pathology in the gastrointestinal tract. This treatment stimulates the liver and gets rid of the debris that’s sticking to the mucosa. The last time I referred my patient to take colon hydrotherapy was just yesterday. There’s hardly a week that goes by which does not see me utilize this fabulous treatment for one or more patients. The colon hydrotherapist in this city of Reno is skilled and does a fine job.”
“Let me describe a particular patient of mine, Mrs. Constance Overmacher, who benefited from colon hydrotherapy,” says Dr. Diamond. “This woman at age forty-six has a long history of antibiotic usage for chronic sinusitis. She is a sugarholic to the extent that her food is totally carbohydrates with hardly any protein or fat. She exhibits a variety of symptoms including extreme fatigue, migraine headaches, irregular menses, chronic constipation, abdominal pain, and yeast growing in the bowel upon testing by EAV [electroacupuncture according to Voll]. Presence of the yeast was confirmed by stool culture and blood tests for yeast antibodies and skin testing.
“For such a complicated case, I tried every kind of treatment that was appropriate, but nothing did any good. The only program that gave Mrs. Overmacher relief was colon hydrotherapy prescribed for her to receive three times a week. It took me a month to get my patient stable, but finally the treatment’s effect kicked in. The lady did get her bowel cleaned up; she’s now experiencing normal stools and I have her following a restrictive protein diet. Her energy is returned, and she has been showing normal menses for the last two months. Her migraines disappeared. She’s off antibiotics, and onto probiotics all the time. Now she takes colon hydrotherapy on a regular once-a-month schedule. Mrs. Overmacher will likely be forced to stay on her therapeutic program continuously.” – Dr. W. John Diamond, M.D.
