Colonic irrigation/Coffee Enema for Purge of Bile Buildup
Nov 2, 2000

What is your take on colonic irrigation and in particular coffee enema? Does it indeed reduce bilirubin buildup and help to purge excess bile in the gut? If so how often should the procedure be done.

Response from Dr. Boyle

This is a part of the "alternative medicine" surge over the past few years; however, there is virtually no scientific data that supports this concept and I do not recommend it. BB
