Dr. Oz's All-Star Advice
Well, what about the people that say, "but [colonics keep] keep me thin. I can lose weight, I feel so cleaned out?" -Robin Meade, host of Ask Oprah???s All Stars
DR. OZ: I can't judge how you feel. I can only judge the claims that you would make about how it makes you lose weight and it doesn't do that...I mean, you'll, you'll lose the poop inside of ya, but that's not real weight loss.
I'm not gonna argue that it's medically dangerous to get a colonic. I just can tell you as a physician that there's not a medical benefit to getting a colonic. So again it comes back to the fundamental issue, if you feel good getting it - and challenge yourself about that - if the only reason you feel good is because you think it's helping you, then fine.
