Indications for Physician Prescription and Supervision
There are many diagnoses where Colonics may help with healing and to relieve symptoms. The following are some such illnesses. However, due to the medications the individual may be taking and possible other complications that only the individual’s physician may know about, we require a note from the individual’s physician. Diagnosis for physician statement include:
Severe Anemia – Untreated
Recent GI or rectal bleeding (within last 2-3 months)
Early pregnancy (1st trimester)
The attending physician’s note would state they are aware their patient is pursuing Colonics, they see no reason to suspect Colonics would be inappropriate, and they might state any limitations regarding Colonics.
A prescription or note on the doctor’s letterhead would include the following:
A statement that there are no Contraindications for Colonics
The prescribing number of Colonics (optional – if they want to limit the number of sessions)
If your physician would like more information about Colonics before writing this statement or prescription, please call us and tell us the doctor’s name, clinic name and address and the phone number we can call. Rachel Dolan or Ruth Menard will be happy to call the doctor and discuss this with him/her.
