I have been looking for some info on colonics that is not "hollywood" based (meaning more than how flat they can make your stomach look before a big event).
My husband, who is normally quite intelligent and not gullible, has been upset over his weight gain and inability to lose it. He read a book (I cannot remember who wrote it) in which the author said all you need to do to lose weight is to fast for 21 days (only liquids) and have 15 colonics in 30 days. This supposedly gets the inital weight off and changes your body from acid to alkaline. My husband bought it hook line and sinker.
I told him it was garbage and gave him the whole lecture about proper
diet and exercise being the only way to lose weight and be successful. I told him it was a fad and did not sound safe in the least to me. He proceeded to tell me I did not know what I was talking about (I'm still in school) and that I was not a Dr. :angryfire So, I told him to talk to his Dr. about this before he tried it. He said he would speak to the Dr. about the fasting, but the colonics were safe. I think it's the other way around. Fasting for 21 days is stupid, but it can just make you hungry. Getting 15 colonics does not seem safe to me.
My big problem is finding good, solid info to back up my point of view. I may be wrong, but I can't find any info either way. Can anyone tell me anything.
