Answered on August 19, 2014

What do you think on the Diet of Dr Hiromi Shinya.

He comes from Japan, now he has practice in the US. His opinion is to have a high vegetable diet. Enzymes are important. And to keep your colon clean. Vegetables should be partly raw.

He doing colonoscopy. So he saw how the diet react on the body of his clients.

agreed- the approach of both the standard MDs and many alternative therapists is still rooted in treating the symptoms and not addressing the actual bodys systems (ie, eat a truly healthful diet, appropriate exercise and getting the foundations of your health in line)

Excellent point Ben. Most people would rather blame something that isn't their fault too. It's not their crappy eating. It's their metabolism or genetics or blocked colon or whatever.

I agree with the prior answers but I'd add that this kind of "alternative" therapy is still allopathic and palliative in nature. Yes, he or others docs like him may at least not be sheep like many MDs, but their approach is still missing the point that if we eat correctly we will not need these band aids.

People, especially in the US, seem to think that vitamins, various cleanses, even acupuncture are the answer to most mainstream medicine's woes but the truth is that their approach is the same in nature. These alternatives still do not address the core of the problem with most people: food.

Seems absurd to try to keep your colon "clean." Our paleo practices would likely address any legitimate colon health issues without having to resort to irrigation and the like. Adding a lot of organic, green leafies to any diet seems like a good idea.

The colon, like any other organ in the body, is evolved to be self-cleaning. There's nothing wrong with a lot of vegetables, but meat doesn't clog the guts. If it did we would all be dead. A blockage in the colon is literally life threatening and anything eaten that would cause a blocked colon would very quickly cause high selection pressure in the group that it affected.

Colon cleansing, fear of meat and adoration for vegetables smells like vegetarianism orthodoxy and raw foodism to me.

I was on raw food for many grueling months and I'm now very suspicious of any one who recommends cleansing your colon.
