  • Yeah colon cleansing is very use full In Nature intended for your colon to eliminate waste material and bacteria and absorb water and mineral salts while maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance. A colon that cannot perform these functions properly, due to impacted fecal matter creates extra toxins that spread across the body through the absorbed fluids.

    Many health problems, including abdominal pain, constipation and lack of energy, can be related to an unhealthy bowel caused partly or largely by eating and drinking products that form a lot of built up waste inside the colon. People consume large amounts of toxic substances daily, including caffeine, sugar, white flour, aspartame, microwave-cooked food, hydrogenated fats and deep fried foods, which results in pounds of unwanted matter forming in colon.

    To get rid of these unwanted accumulations colon cleansing is a natural and easy way. There are many colon cleaning changes you can introduce to your lifestyle that you can try right away.

    To start the colon cleansing process, you must make certain amendments to your diet. Our diet is generally now full of food which has been changed in many ways from what nature intended. Improvements in nutrition often bring adequate results alone, and the colon starts cleansing naturally. To begin colon cleansing, you must take adequate amounts of fiber, 25-30 grams daily, dissolved in water or in food.

    Drinking water is essential for a healthy colon. To stimulate the natural peristaltic action, a person should drink half of his or her weight in ounces of pure non-carbonated water. For example, if your weight is 150 pounds, you should drink 75 ounces of water, which is approximately 2 liters. If you drink enough water and consume a sufficient amount of fiber, your colon will restore its function over time.

    Herbs are the great way to perform a mild colon cleansing. Herbal colon cleanse recipes help in removing fecal matter, prevent toxin formation, kill the harmful bacteria and parasites, and improve the function of colon muscles to promote natural and regular bowel movements.

    Herbs used in the traditional colon cleansing recipes have been tested for centuries. Basically all herbs in colon cleansing recipes have liver cleansing and cathartic actions. Aloe leaf, senna, cascara Sigrida, ginger, and cayenne pepper help eliminate impurities from the colon by stimulating bowel movements. Every herbal colon cleanse recipe includes some sort of a bitter plant that promotes bile flow to cleanse the liver, for example, barberry which stimulates liver and gall bladder. Fennel and garlic have purifying action on the colon bacteria, as they help killing harmful bacteria. These two plants also prevent gas formation.

    You can buy colon cleansing herbs in most health stores, follow the instructions on the labels carefully. Many great colon cleansing teas are sold in ready to use packets. Use these in moderation to prevent too frequent bowel movements that can dehydrate you. With time and experience you will learn more and will be ready to make adjustments, increasing or decreasing the herbs according to the desired result.

    When performing colon cleanse as a course, continue taking a fiber with your meals in form of wheat germ, oat bran, or rice bran cereals for breakfast. The more lifestyle changes you perform, eating healthy food such as fruit, vegetables, good supplements, and drinking enough water, the more success you will have in returning your colon to a healthy state.

  • No. The normal human colon does a fantastic job moving and eliminating waste all on its own. Unless you’re going in for a colonoscopy, there is no reason to clean it.

  • YES! Among the cleansing therapies available to promote the health of your body, a colon cleanse is at the top of the list. Colon cleanses are performed before you start detoxifying your liver, blood or lymph system so that when you ready to start cleansing those organs or systems, the toxins or impurities will surely be reduced or eliminated since there is no blockage present in the colon.

  • Absolutely not. No way. Un huh.
    Colon cleansing has absolutely no medical benefit and is in fact harmful to the digestive system.
    There is no build up of bad plaque or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
    If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their bodies couldn’t absorb nutrients.
    Since the majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around like sponges right?
    We "cleanse and detox" 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
    We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
    Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
    Read food labels. If you can’t pronounce it, don’t put it in your body.
    Colon cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
    And if you do one of these cleanses, they never mention the gas and bloating as your body rebuilds the healthy bacteria population.
    Spend your money in the produce department instead of giving it away.
    Good luck.

  • Only in your mind.

  • Yes and you feel great!

    That last answer is spot on. Colon cleansing really can help you if your digestive system is backed up or doesn’t work quite right. My fiance uses a colon cleanser everyday to help keep her regular. Nasty, I know, but it works.
