Question: Can I have a Colon Irrigation while Breastfeeding?


 spectragirl16 - Mon Dec 29, 2008 12:44 am

I would like to have a Colon Irrigation or a Colon Hydrotherapy procedure done but I am worried that releasing the toxins may contaminate my breast milk for my baby. Is this safe to do?

User avatar Hello
I would not expect any problem with your breast milk due to this procedure if you really feel it is needed. I know of no toxins released in this way that would be harmful. Congratulations on your decision to give your baby the best.

Kindest regards
