The case of Tommy, an eight-year-old boy with intractable constipation. An edited version of a case report by American doctor Paul Flashner, MD.This is not a case study from West London colonics files (but is offered as an example from a doctors clinical practice). Dr. Flashner, a conventionally qualified doctor, has incorporated complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) including colonic irrigation in his clinical practice. Tommy never had a bowel movement for a week at a time. His parents consulted with gastroenterologists. Repeated colonoscopy (a dozen times) failed to find an organic cause as the source of his blockage. Laxatives did not helped much. There was no diagnosis except that he suffered severely from constipation. When Tommy arrived at Dr Flashner’s clinic, he proceeded as follows: He improved the child's diet and removed all junk foods. He instigated an exercise program, had him drink lots of water, balanced his colonic flora, and added fibre food supplements. But, according to the doctor, the difference that made the difference for “Tommy's welfare is that he took colonic irrigation under my prescription”. Result: Within six months Tommy was experiencing a natural and normal bowel movement every day. “No laxatives were involved in his progress," says Dr. Flashner. Tommy continues with colonic hydrotherapy on a much reduced frequency. I.e. once a month for six months, and thereafter just four times a year. (Nb: Two years after the initial treatment Tommy remains in excellent physical condition).
