Re: Regulating Colonics

Texas is not the first attempt to try and restrict the right of the public to professional colon cleansing treatment.

In 1983 in Massachusetts the state government (Attorney General?) attempted to close down the practice of colon hydrotherapy completely, but eventually settled for the requirement that an MD write a prescription prior to a client receiving a colonic. From what I have been told, at the time, that added $35 to $50 to the price of a first-time colonic.

Later during the 1980's, the California Medical Association (CMA) attempted to ban colonics entirely. They even tried to make giving an enema to a family member at home a crime if not administered by an MD or RN under the supervision of an MD. Eventually, the state legislature became involved and put an end to such harrassment.

The recent situation in Texas was prompted by stupidity and carelessness on the part of a colon therapist there using a gravity flow system who left an elderly client alone on the system for an extended period of time that resulted in her death. It was a very sad case that should never have happened.
