|Colon therapy is the cleansing of the large intestine (colon) through the administration of water, herbal solutions, enzymes, or other substances such as coffee. It is believed that colon therapy is quite successful in curing the cancer. This therapy is practiced considering that it is a method of detoxifying the body through the removal of accumulated waste from the colon. Detoxification increases the efficiency of the body's natural healing abilities. Hence it is sometimes promoted as a treatment for illness.
It is done through the use of plastic tubes inserted through the rectum and into the colon. A machine pump sends large quantities of liquid (up to 20 gallons) into the large intestine and clears it out.
