Researchers discovered that colon hydrotherapy, combined with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), may be a promising treatment strategy in managing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The results of their study, published in the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine, demonstrate TCM’s potential to be an alternative treatment for the condition.
While the findings show that the treatments look to be promising in terms of NAFLD treatment, researchers suggest long-term, randomized, and controlled trials to further analyze its effectiveness.
