Maintaining a rheumatology practice for the past twenty-four years in Long Branch, New Jersey, Arthur E. Brawer, MD, is an enthusiastic exponent of colon hydrotherapy for a variety of health problems. He cites this treatment in his recently published consumer book, Holistic Harmony.
“Silicon breast implant exposure which results in disease symptoms responds very well to colon hydrotherapy. I am in the center of this silicone breast implant controversy by having consulted with over 500 women from around the world for the toxic environmental exposure caused by such implantation. I’ve given testimony as an expert witness before the United States Congress on this issue along with advising the Department of Health and Human Services, the FDA, and consultants to the President, the Vice-President, the Director of Women’s Health at the White House, and the United Nations. I use colon hydrotherapy for the treatment of such silicone toxicity, since it does work to chelate silicone out of the body,” states Dr. Brawer.
“Let me explain. From day one of implantation, silicone micromolecules disperse throughout the body because the pore size (the porosity) of the envelope or shell enclosing the implant is larger than most of the silicone molecules contained inside. Thus, the disease symptoms derived from silicone toxicity is not dependent on envelope rupture. Symptoms begin immediately! In other words, the molecules of silicone travel through the membrane osmotically and become microdispersed throughout the body by means of the lymphatic system,” explains Dr. Brawer.
“Now realize that the connective tissue or collagen in each person’s body requires silicone as an essential component in order to provide the body with proper architectural structure such as for tendons, ligaments, nerve sheathes, and everything else. Silicone makes up the glue which holds the skin together, gives substance to the organs, act as regulators, signal transmitters, and so forth. It functions as an integral part of metabolism and physiology. Thus, all tissues are dependent on silicone as an essential ingredient,” Dr. Brawer says. “But given in excess as a leaking silicone breast implant, there is only one place the excess may be dumped or stored by the body – – into its connective tissue. When that happens a whole litany of complaints occur: joint pains, dry eyes, fatigue, memory lapses, skin rashes and pigmentations, chest pain, muscle aches, drug intolerance, odor and smell sensitivity to hair sprays, room fresheners, deodorants, and more (see sidebar).
“So the silicone molecules become stuck in the body’s glue, and they cannot be removed by use of medications or supplemental nutrients or diet. Only certain techniques may be applied to detoxify the body: colon hydrotherapy is perhaps the best way and also working as detoxifiers are Ayurvedic medicine, hyperthermia, steam baths, saunas, oxygen therapy, and the energy-based therapies such as Reiki therapy and Quigong. Any dietary approach has to be more an exclusionary basis – take the patient off of processed foods and have them eat organic,” confirms Dr. Brawer. “But of all the treatments for symptoms coming from silicone breast implants, colon hydrotherapy I find to be one of the mainstays that offer relief.
Conditions Responding to Colon Hydrotherapy

“Colon hydrotherapy eliminates from the bowel the repository of accumulated waste material which may disadvantageously get absorbed. If this absorption takes place, it overwhelms the other purification organs such as the liver, the kidneys, the skin, and the lungs. The toxin deposition which becomes lodged throughout the body’s tissues and cells becomes capable of triggering a variety of illnesses,” says rheumatologist Dr. Arthur E. Brawer. “There’s lots of them. Some disease indications for colon hydrotherapy responding well are:
|Acne||Memory Lapses||Attention Deficit Disorder|
|Hypertension||Body Odor||Brittle Hair|
|Brittle Nails||Chronic Fatigue||Cold Hands & Feet|
|Mouth Sores||Multiple Sclerosis||Nausea|
|Peripheral Neuropathies||Peptic Ulcer||Pot Belly|
|Poor Posture||Seizures||Muscle Pain|
|Joint Aches||Chest Pain||Skin Rashes|
|Pigmentation||Toxic Environmental Exposure|
|Toxic Occupational Exposure|
