Located in Millburn, New Jersey as a primary care physician for nearly twenty-six years, Sharda Sharma, MD, dispenses medical care of a multi-disciplinary nature to her patients. Dr Sharma employs colonic irrigation, chelation therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, Reiki manipulative therapy, and much more. She treats the body as a whole (holistically).
“I have trained and certified colon hydrotherapists working as part of my staff. Under my supervision for the past year-and-a-half they have been rendering care for constipation, abdominal cramps, allergies, and a variety of other conditions, including ten patients with hepatitis C. These hepatitis patients respond to colonic irrigation and do well,” assures Dr Sharma. “For instance, Mrs Felicia, a forty-two-year-old high school teacher, had suffered from constipation-no bowel movements for six days at a stretch. She was lethargic, headachy, and crampy. She also suffered from bloating, fatigue. My treatment choice for her was enzyme supplements and colonic irrigation twice weekly for thirteen weeks. These treatments solved the constipation problem for Mrs Felicia. She goes to the toilet as desired without having to sit there for long periods waiting, reading, meditating, or undergoing other mental or physical diversions.
“Colonic irrigation is standard procedure for yeast syndrome. A very anxious fifty-year-old female, Mrs Sara Audrey, consulted me because she was running to the toilet every two hours with either diarrhoea or with attempting to find comfort from constipation. It turns out that she had irritable bowel syndrome complicated by candidiasis. During the administration of colonic irrigation, I observed that Mrs Audrey had severe contamination with Candida albicans. Further, I recognized the white yeast organisms floating through the transparent tube of my colon flushing device,” says Dr Sharma. “But the patient is now in fine shape-much relieved. She has good bowel movements twice daily with no gas. This is typical of almost all patients undergoing colonic irrigation.”
“I’ve had a colonic irrigation device in my office for twenty-five years,” states Michael Gerber, MD, of Reno, Nevada. “My present staff person who dispenses colonic irrigation under my jurisdiction uses it for all types of patient difficulties. The basic concepts of science have not changed much in the last twenty-five years; however, the colonic irrigation equipment has improved immensely. How the equipment works so effectively is nothing short of astounding. Besides, registered with the FDA, current colonic irrigation equipment is safe. It also contains temperature-controlled water mixing and backflow prevention valves, plus pressure and temperature sensors, and built-in chemical sanitizing units. Moreover, water purification units frequently are in use as well. Besides, therapists employ disposable single-use rectal tubes, and/or speculum routinely for sterility.
“Undergoing a session of colonic irrigation has you experiencing comfort and cleansing with no toxicity. Techniques utilized allow a small amount of water to flow into the colon gently stimulating the colon’s natural peristaltic action to release softened waste,” Dr Gerber advises. “The inflow of a small amount of water and the release of waste may repeat again and again. The removal of such waste encourages better colon function and elimination.
“During the treatment, most clothing can continue to be worn. Besides, the patient may wear a drape or a gown to ensure modesty. So, we always ensure maintaining the patient’s dignity,” Dr Michael Gerber affirms. “The benefits of colonic irrigation extend all the way from psychiatric improvement to constipation elimination.”
