Is colon hydrotherapy while also breastfeeding safe?

Wouldn't do it: Arguably there is no indication at all for colon hydrotherapy. Risks can include fluid and electrolyte problems, infection, adversely affecting the colonic bacterial flora. Any of these migh be more of an issue during breast feeding.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
