  • Colon cleansing as in colonic hydrotherapy is a type of quackery. It is claimed to remove toxins from the body – thereby increasing health status.

    It was mainstream back in the 1800’s and early 1900’s. Since then, scientific evidence has demonstrated, that it is useless. It is potentially dangerous. Here are a few examples where things went terribly wrong – and for no reason: http://whatstheharm.net/coloncleansing.html

    Your colon is the last part of your digestive tract. Cleansing it refers to emptying and flushing it out. It’s sometimes necessary to relieve certain health problems or before some medical exams. It should not be done too often though or without a doctor’s advice

    Colon cleansing is preparing the body for a detoxification, a process where toxins are eliminated from the body. Avoiding certain foods before cleansing will enhance the process as well as certain steps to take before and after cleansing to keep the colon healthy on a regular basis.

    There are all sorts of quack versions that pretend to do you good.
