Joshua Heinermann, the sixty-six-year-old chief executive officer for Virginia Chemicals Corporation of Chesapeake, Virginia, had been suffering severely from prostate gland enlargement (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH). For four years the man’s symptoms had been building steadily. And, now they were affecting his ability to manage in the administrative position he held. The executive’s nighttime urinary urgency (nocturia) came with such frequency, Mr Heinermann found himself perpetually fatigued during daytime business meetings. His need to sleep lay on him like a blanket, and he felt as if his mind was encased in cotton batting. Any capability for him to make vital decisions on behalf of his corporation became almost non-existent. To confront the problem, the CEO finally consulted a urologist located in his city.
In practice for over sixty years as a specialist in solving urological problems for both men and women, Emil S. Sayegh, MD, of Chesapeake, Virginia is eighty-eight years of age. Over the six decades of his medical practice, Dr Sayegh has been consulted by a particularly large number of male clientele who have sought his help in correcting BPH and prostatitis.
“These two common medical difficulties closely associate with having weak abdominal muscles,” explains the board-certified urologist. “Those men possessing flaccid and weak abdominal muscles experience enormous pressures on their bladders which never let up. The supportive muscles and other erectile tissues surrounding the bladder fail to do the jobs required. The pressure of the bladder’s rectal sigmoid may be severe. Therefore any amount of stool in that area is going to make urine passage very difficult. Whether urine is present or not, the need for these men to void becomes overwhelming.”
During the past fifteen years, Dr Sayegh has made use of colonic irrigation. As a result, it solves his patients’ two particular prostate pathologies almost every time. “Cleaning the colon markedly assists the functioning of the pathological male bladder and prostate organs. Colonic irrigation given to involved men at two-week intervals for three times to start and then maintained every four weeks for an unlimited period does solve prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia,” states Emil S Sayegh, MD. “From my files, I can offer up several hundred case studies which testify to that fact.”
“I have found over the years that cancer patients who are not doing well usually are toxic and do not clean the intestines. They certainly are in need of colonic irrigation,” advises oncologist and homoeopath Douglas Brodie, MD, of Reno, Nevada. Dr Brodie has developed CAM methods for treating cancer and other degenerative diseases aimed at strengthening the immune system. He emphasizes natural and humane approaches to these conditions with colonic irrigation being among them.
“I do recommend that most of my cancer patients take colonic irrigation or ‘colonic irrigations’. As a result, they often improve by having such treatment. Liver cancer in particular shows benefit from colonic irrigation, but any internal tumours show effectual change too,” Dr Brodie says. “It’s better than an enema, which is merely a lower bowel cleanse. In other words, a colonic is a thorough cleansing of the entire bowel. It’s similar to comparing the diagnostic efficacy of a sigmoidoscopy of the short end of the bowel to a colonoscopy which takes in the whole bowel. An enema only goes so far. Colonic irrigation is the best cleansing and detoxifier for the gastrointestinal tract that anybody would want. I do promote its use.”
