Crazy: Dr nguyen and heller are quite correct. The state of texas prosecuted practitioners of colonic cleansing because the procedure was ineffective and dangerous. This is outlawed in texas now.

Not necessary: The desire to clean the colon relates to ancient medical theories about internal toxicity derived from the colon.
