Board certified as a gastroenterologist from 1972, Robert Charm, M.D., of Walnut Creek, California, a clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, combines conventional allopathic medicine with CAM in his practice. He also continues to make house calls.
“I prescribe colon hydrotherapy by calling upon a superbly trained practitioner of the art in the San Francisco Bay area. She is certified by the 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 colonoscopy, I see that the patient is cleaned out from above but below the diverticular 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 percent of Americans possess diverticulosis colae. When inflamed, gastroenterologists called them diverticulitis colae, which can be serious by creating fistulas. Some people then will poop through their bladders. Some women actually poop throught their vagina,” Dr. Charm says. “With patients for whom I perform colonoscopy, about one third of them over the age of fifty who are otherwise cleaned above, still show residual stools sitting in these gut mucosa pockets. Some have held onto the stool pockets for decades. A toxic dumpsite like this is dangerous for them by the elevated concentration of poisons stored in the dumpsite. Environmental cancer can develop!”
“A good cleanout by use of colon hydrotherapy is excellent treatment. Surely I recommend that people undertake colon hydrotherapy for themselves. Clean out the body’s pipes,” Dr. Robert Charm suggests. “And by all means, I prefer my patients to 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 irritable bowel syndrome with gas and bloating, chronic constipation, abdominal discomfort, and many other GI tract problems.”
“My patient, Fran Wilson, a former model, now age forty-one, the mother of two, was just too busy to go to the bathroom. She didn’t celebrate having a good bowel movement, which is the thinking in our society. For her, defecation was an annoyance. Fran labored under the mistaken illusion that pooping 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 the drinking of more water. This cleared up her discomforts remarkably fast despite her lifetime of bad habits.”
“The lesson to learn is that when one gets the urge to move, you must do so. Being too busy in our society to give in to the need to defecate is wrong. Find a way,” advises Dr. Robert Charm. “Some people don’t poop enough! Let’s get people thinking about eating and pooping. If these don’t occur together, colon hydrotherapy should be employed.” – Dr. Robert Charm, M.D
