In brief: No
No scientific studies have ever shown a benefit to colonics.
In fact, what many people do not realize is that the colon lining gets nourished from free fatty acids in the stool. Basically the poop in the colon nourishes the colon! any therapies geared towards removing waste are potentially damaging to the colon!
