    Colonics are a safe and efficient way to clean the colon. Look in the phone book or check natural health centers in your area. They cost $50-$60 but are well worth it. Colon cleansing with herbs is less efficient and best done with a short fast on water or juice. More info can be found at rawfoods.com or livingfoods.com Good luck on this important step to improving your health.

  • Since this is posted in alternative medicine, don’t pay attention to what medical doctors are saying. They may lose their job security.

    Cleansing works. Along with a healthy diet. The health food stores will have a variety of cleanses, some more gentle than others. Cheapest isn’t always the best.

    An autopsy will show a build up of waste in the intestines. Overtime, the walls will get thin and weak and pockets form.

    I do one twice a year and feel wonderful.

    Yes, there are some graphic images available if you do a search on this showing stuff that comes out of the colon. Most illnesses start with a bunged up colon and it can lead to so many other problems. If you have any kind of constipation, heartburn, acid reflux, trapped wind, indigestion, etc, then it’s usually a sign that your colon needs cleaning. Constipation will also cause you to feel depressed and fatigued.

    I had went for colonic irrigation. It was costly, but well worth it. I was told I would need six sessions, but felt wonderful after just two. Something major came away and I felt like crying with happiness afterwards and I didn’t know why.

    It’s a wonderful feeling having a clean colon; you feel clean, both inside and out, and you get the urge to put only healthy foods in your body afterwards.

    Since then I try to detox every now and again, by just eating fruit and vegetables for a couple of days (excluding beans, peas, corn, bananas and potato). I also try to include lots of cabbage. Any kind of fruit with skin on is also excellent i.e. apples, grapes, plums, prunes, etc.

    I’ve tried colon cleanse tablets from the health food store, which were okay but I’m not sure they would do such a thorough job as colonic irrigation.

    My wife’s aunt has a very lot of knowledge in this area and has been doing a home based business (NOT MLM…500inc Company) that is along this line and also chemical free products. Let me know if you want more info and I will hook her up with you if you would like.

    Instead of doing a colon cleanse you should try a product called Herb-Fib Wafers.Regulate bowels and detoxify colon. this is a much safer route for you. If you take these drink plenty of water so you don’t get constipated.

    Psyllium and bentonite is one of the simplest and most effective ways to cleanse the digestive system. It is very inexpensive ($10 for 30 shakes) and you can get it at your local health food store. If there’s no store near you try http://www.iherb.com. It is also very effective in removing mucoid plaque. It’s not a one time deal. It took you years to clog it up, it’ll take a few weeks or months to clean it out.

    Liquid bentonite should be used…or powdered bentonite should be hydrated to a semi-pourable yogurt consistency prior to using it. Mix 1 Tablespoon of liquid bentonite and 1 teaspoon of powdered psyllium (or 1 Tablespoon if using whole husk psyllium) with 8-10oz of water or diluted juice, shake and drink immediately. Follow this with another 8-10oz glass of water. This is in addition to daily water intake of half your body weight in ounces. Sufficient water is a key to success with this cleanse!

    Psyllium and bentonite shakes should be taken at least one hour before or after taking any supplements, herbs, medications, etc.

    *The shakes MUST be taken on an empty stomach….at least one hour away from food on either side. First thing in the morning, last thing at night are easy. Then one or 2 in the afternoon after lunch and before dinner – T*

    Start with one shake a day and gradually increase as the body adjusts to the additional fiber. It may take 3-5 shakes a day and/or several weeks before you start passing mucoid plaque. Continue taking the shakes as long as mucoid plaque is being eliminated for up to 6 months. Additional cleanses may be necessary in order to thoroughly cleanse the digestive system and can be performed for a few months at a time. Each cleanse should be followed with the use of a good-quality probiotic to replace beneficial bacteria. Maintenance cleanses should be done 2-4 times per year.

    If constipation should occur while doing this cleanse, 1) increase daily water intake, 2) use enemas or colonics to clear out released material and get things moving again, and 3) cut back on the shakes or stop the cleanse until the bowels are moving regularly again.

    This cleanse can be combined with The Master Cleanse and parasite cleanse…this is called the Ultimate Fast. It can also be done with juice fasting.

    This cleanse can also be performed while eating a normal diet. However, the ‘cleaner’ the diet is, the better the results will be. Reduce or eliminate meats, dairy, flours, sugars, processed foods, toxic exposures of all types…anything that is mucoid-forming. The diet should include lots of fresh vegetables and fruits (if tolerated), fresh juices, salads, soups, etc. Liquid minerals including trace minerals and electrolytes are beneficial for creating an alkaline state in the body and can improve the results of the cleanse.

    Two good sources for cleansing products include Yerba Prima (Great Plaines Detox liquid bentonite) and Sonne’s (#7 Detoxificant liquid bentonite)…both companies also carry psyllium.

    Dry skin brushing is a great addition to a Colon Cleanse …it cleans the skin and also circulates and cleanses the lymph, aiding in the elimination process. A natural bristle sisal or tampico brush is used…brush all areas of the skin (except face and any sensitive areas) with long strokes towards the heart prior to shower or bath. The brush and skin are both dry when brushing is performed.

    Psyllium and bentonite can help to eliminate parasites and candida, but each of these conditions requires additional measures to address it completely. A parasite cleanse can be performed with the colon cleanse or immediately after. Liver/gallbladder cleansing is also beneficial following a thorough colon cleansing.

    Above all else…pay close attention to how your body responds and honor what it needs!
