    Colon cleansers add fiber to one’s diet. Fiber helps the colon clean undigested foods and other things from the digestion track. Psyllium (Plantago Husks) is a really good colon cleanser. Mix a good size tablespoon if Psyllium in water or juice and drink it down each morning or each night before bed. There are other fibers you can use. Visit a health food store or go on line and do some home work. Psyllium is my favorite.

    It is a scam. Your colon cleans itself every time you have a dump.

    There might be different kinds, I’m not sure what you mean specifically. If you want an intestinal cleanse you could try an herbal supplement called Triphala, it’s organic and has natural laxative properties. You can read up about it at this site http://www.naturesformulary.com/Products/56-triphala.aspx

    Hope this helps!

    Psyllium and Bentonite to pull some of the toxins out. Keeping the colon clean is important on so many levels.

    You should be having at least a bowel movement every day. If you are not evacuating fully, the the colon will reabsorb dirty water (this is what the colon does so that the stools will be semi solid).

    The common American diet does not generally provide enough fiber to fully evacuate the bowel. A colon cleanse can help that, but if the diet were better, it would not be necessary.
    Those that claim oterwise have not disected a human colon and seen for themselves what the lining of the colon looks like. I have.

    Arise and Shine makes a kit to gently cleanse. While a bit pricey, it can allow the body to purge the cow-pie green gunk that has sat unpassed in the colon for years. I have not personally used their product, but aquaintances of mine who have swear by it.

    It’s naturopathic nonsense. Your colon is not dirty and barring disease cleans itself naturally. Colon cleansing (especially herbal) is risky – it may disrupt fluid and electrolyte balance and has been associated with cardiac problems such as heart failure. If you do have a genuine condition such as fecal impaction, then you would be very ill and require a doctor.

    Most doctors don’t recommend colon cleansing. Their reasoning is simple: Your digestive system and bowel naturally eliminate waste material and bacteria — your body doesn’t need colon cleansing to do this.

    In fact, colon cleansing can sometimes be harmful. The main concerns with colon cleansing are that it can:

    . Increase your risk of dehydration
    . Lead to bowel perforations
    . Increase the risk of infection
    . Cause a rise in your electrolytes, which can be dangerous if you have kidney disease or heart disease
