What is a SAFE natural colon cleanse?

Posted by admin on Thursday 17 September 2009

There are a lot of scams out there…do any of you know any SAFE, colon cleansing recipes? Preferably herbal.
:)

Yes there are lots of scams out there, and one of them is that your colon needs cleansing. It doesn’t.

From Wiki:
"No scientific evidence supports the alleged benefits of colon cleansing. The bowel itself is not dirty and barring drugs or disease, cleans itself naturally without need for assistance.

Colon cleansing is not necessary as the body naturally removes waste material. Colon cleansing may disrupt the balance between bacteria and natural chemicals in the bowel, and may interfere with the colon’s ability to shed dead cells. Other rare but serious complications include gastrointestinal perforation from improper insertion, and amoebic infection from poorly sterilised equipment. Some colon cleansing regimes disrupt fluid and electrolyte balance which may lead to dehydration and salt depletion, whilst repeated or excessive cleansing programs can lead to anemia and malnutrition. Excessive use of enemas have also been associated with cardiac problems such as heart failure, and heart attacks related to electrolyte imbalances when used with coffee.

The frequent use of enemas or other colon cleansing tools may lead to dependence and an inability to defecate without assistance or withdrawal symptoms. Herbs that are consumed for colon cleansing and taken as oral preparations may also interfere with drug absorption and effectiveness."

    Gary Y. Don’t believe everything you read in Wiki. Try a colon cleanse and see all the crap that comes out of you before you say it’s bogus. It’s not. I personally know people who dropped 15 pounds in two weeks and are forever grateful they did it.

    Water and veggies doesn’t kill parasites ckngbbbls. Sorry, but they’re still in your body.

    Your colon does not need cleansing. If you eat a healthy mix of foods, including plenty of fruits and vegetables and grains, your colon will do just fine. There is nothing in there that doesn’t belong there. Please appreciate the wonderful body nature has given you. Your teeth do not need whitening, your natural hair color is perfect for you, your breasts are just the right size and natural small beats fake large any day.References :

    How about the Lemonade Diet, aka The Master Cleanse? My bf’s sister tried it out (I think for only a couple days) and she said it worked. You can find recipes on this website:
    You can find all you need to know just by typing "Lemonade diet" in a search engine.References :

    Here’s a site with a lot of helpful information. There are several cleanses and diets to help you restore and maintain good health.References :

    I would recommend staying away from all packaged "colon cleanse" products as most are simply a waste of money – with a few being potentially dangerous to your health.

    The absolute best choice is to speak with a naturalpathic doctor about it. He/she would review your overall health, medications, medical needs, lifestyle etc and make an educated recommendation.

    But if you aren’t able to do that, there is a simple one day cleanse that should be safe for you. for one day only – eat only oranges and drink only white grape juice and water. It will clear out anything that may be blocked, sticking to the sides etc. As it is an only a one-day cleanse its easy to fit into your schedule.

    That being said, I would like to say that I agree with some of the other answerers who listed that a diet with lots of fresh fruit, veggies and water will also work. this is quite true but sometimes people don’t eat as well as they should, so a periodic cleanse is usually ok to do. But again, only a qualified Naturalpathic Doctor could say for sure.

    I hope that helps.References : 14 + years as a holistic practitioner

    Its safe and less painful than a prostate exam. lol
    I am young and I have never had my colon cleanse but they say it is healthy to have it done when you get around your thirties to help prevent prostate and colon cancer. I say get it done with a product that gives at least a free trial offer. Ima look for sum and if i find one I will post a link for it.References :
