Has anybody ever done a colon cleanse?
I've found several products on-line - didn't know if any of them were better than any others.
Was your colon cleanse sucessful?

My doctor and other knowledgeable doctors advise agianst a colon cleanse. The only benefit is to the sellers of these products!
I had a fellow worker try it and she got very ill with the flu bug because her immunity was low while she was doing the cleanse.
Doctor recommended: Increase your daily fibre intake and drink plenty of water.

For me I'm Blessed,all I need is fresh vegetables:corn,spinach,beans,chocolate milk,foods like that sets me off.I don't eat none of these regularly if I did I would become weak and restless from too much movement. A friend had a Preparation H problem nothing worked until he started 3 daily metamucil mixtures,juice/soda/anything orange with the metamucil.Now his movements are 2 times daily and easier..My doctor wants me to go for that test.When things stop coming out then MAYBE I'll let them go in.......Blessings Yahoo

The secret to cleaning your colon is to drink water, I saw a study that said drinking water does exactly the same thing as the gimmick products.

your colon is designed to clean itself quite efficiently. All those so called cleanses are are high powered laxatives that truly mess up your digestive system. It is quite easy to become dependant upon them to just have a bowel movement after a while, and they totally screw up your electrolyte balance too. Any doctor will tell you, never use a laxative unless you absolutely must.Source(s): RN
