Hydrogen Peroxide Enemas

I spoke to my gastroenterologist on hydrogen peroxide enemas today. I told him I had recently read posts on the J Pouch Group advocating use of these enemas. He told me absolutely under no circumstances should I use hydrogen peroxide to treat J Pouch or bowel inflammation. He said he studied the use of hydrogen peroxide when he did his fellowship at Yale and that studies showed that (a) it caused colitis in many users and (b) it oxidizes and the oxidization causes a dissipation of the lining of bowel. He was adamant that I not use it and to warn against its use. Hence my post.
