Monday, February 25, 2013 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio
Its been 5 years since I started doing this show on Doctor Radio, which didn't even officially "exist" when we started broadcasting...that would come several months later. So how best to celebrate this anniversary than with coffee: a coffee enema? I won't lie: even though I am a gastroenterologist I am not familiar (yet) with this practice. So when Melanie was able to get ahold of Mike and his wife, who were recently on The Learning Channel's "My Strange Addiction," I was intrigued. Learn what made them start this controversial therapy and what medical science knows about this procedure.
