It's a mixed bag. Luckily there are several physicians in Orange County who practice "integrative medicine"--which means they prefer, if possible, to offer you natural ways to heal instead of using medicine. Integrative doctors definitely advocate colonics, coffee enemas, diet, supplements, stem cell therapy, nutritional IV, ozone, acupuncture, and other natural therapies as excellent ways to achieve and maintain good health. An integrative doctor may recommend medication or surgery if the patient's condition requires more than natural therapies. Even though we are well into the 21st Century, there are still many doctors don't know what colonics are, or believe they are not helpful. If you have a serious illness, please consult a physician first before considering colonics.
