“Actually you don’t need your colon”

I’m sorry. WHAT?
The episode I listened to completely wrote off any sort of dietary interventions and only touted powerful drugs and surgery to remove a colon of someone with ulcerative colitis. He said “you actually don’t need a colon”, which is wild. There are hundreds of important functions that stem from processes in the colon. Work to rehabilitate and heal it before you go to immune suppressing drugs and removal.
I’m stunned and saddened.
