The use of therapeutic enemas has a robust tradition in the history of naturopathic medicine. In addition, my own grandfather, a medical doctor, had a habit of administering a cleansing enema to any of his 8 children who displayed any sign of acute illness, which, in the words of my brother, “if nothing else, probably cut down on malingering.” Despite these facts, I made it into my 30s and through my entire professional training as a naturopathic doctor without having given, received, or even witnessed an enema of any type.

A new case study out of Germany was just published in the October 2018 American Journal of Gastroenterology. A 32-year old woman was experiencing fistulizing Crohn’s Disease complicated with diversion colitis. Diversion colitis is inflammation of the large intestine brought on after surgical treatment (Usually an ileostomy or colostomy).

Dr. Bagley, Just a quick note to say THANK YOU You probably don’t remember helping me at UCSD Thorton IR on 2-11-2019 during
According to a recent study published in The American Journal Of Alcohol And Drug Abuse, 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) may improve depression and anxiety when administered in a group setting. In the Johns Hopkins University survey 80% of the participants found that the drug(medicine) improved anxiety and depression symptoms. Studies show that a significant portion of those with IBD, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis suffer from depression and/or anxiety.  I’d bet you a green smoothie that 100% of those with IBD have at some point suffered from depression and anxiety. I’d further bet you a mug of Bone Broth that 100% of
