In brief: Not necessary
The colon is a place where water and some nutrients are absorbed by one's body.
Diarrhea occurs if one does not absorb the normal amount of water and nutrients from his poop (stool). If one has bowel problems, he can see his primary care doctor or a gastroenterologist. Colonic cleaning or irrigation is not natural, and can be dangerous if the person's chemical balance is distorted.
