Avatar m tn just a question, I was at GNC today and saw a product for colon or gastro cleansing. Has anyone used these, does it work and is it healty?
Avatar m tn Make an appointment with a gastroenterologist. It is costly if you don't have an insurance, regardless of age, if you are in doubt, consult with the Gas.. to have a colon scan. It takes a day of cleansing and a day of check up. Don't wait till too late. Colonsnocopy is suggested to the over 50 but no longer truth. You may develop a polyp in your 20s 30s 40s as well. Check if in doubt. When you see blool in your stool, act quickly. Polyp if not taken care, will turn bad.
Avatar f tn I would make an appointment with a good naturopath and they will lead you in the right direction. Colon cleansing is great, but it needs to be done correctly and most MD's just don't understand the procedure, etc.
Avatar n tn I've been having pain and discomfort in my lower right abdomen and colon area. There has been some feeling of pressure and some sharp pain as well as some dull and a few times prickly pain. It is increased when I have gas bubbles passing through that area. I'll get the pain and then alittle while later, I emit the gas bubble externally. The other times I get the pain is when I'm stressed, believe it or not.
1387175 tn?1326400997 Yes, I've had several and they are not a big deal. We have an hereditary colon cancer in our family, and my children from puberty, had to have them yearly, and they had no issues with it except for the prep. Different doctors use different things for cleansing the colon for the procedure. This ends up causing you to go to the bathroom many times the night prior to your procedure, but it's just to make sure your colon is clean so they can get a good view of it.
Avatar f tn This is going to be late for you, but you should never take liver cleansers while taking medication. What you're describing is a combination colon/liver cleanse. Milk thistle and yellowdock, for example, are liver cleansers, and could theoretically wash some of the medication out of our system, as the body sees virtually all medication as toxic.
184342 tn?1282588750 I was recently talking with a friend who does those colon cleansers, and she loves them--- but I have read mixed reviews... I bought one, but don't know if I should start it- I bought the Whole Body Cleanse by Enzymatic-- I am worried because of the problems I had while I was pregnant, plus, I have two little kids and work full time, so I don't have time for 2 weeks of flu like symptoms... have any of you guys tryed these things?
1378071 tn?1313420821 Has anyone tried the ACIA / COLON cleansing pills, drink whatever.... they say the fat just comes right off?!?! Comeon now... Does that really work, im trying to get opinons before i try it!!!
Avatar f tn A cleansing diet would be rearranging your entire diet, for a short time or forever, to emphasize cleansing toxins out of your colon, liver, and other organs. The reason you read about fasting a lot is that it's the best cleansing diet there is -- you take in no toxins while your body has the opportunity to clean itself out in the meantime. How long to fast is controversial, but when first starting out it's usually recommended to do one day, then move on later to two, etc.
451343 tn?1256250831 t take over night to get myself in this position, all though it sometimes feels like it happened over night. just want to feel normal what ever that is. wondering about colon cleansing. i have some colon cleansing formula. wondering if i should wait to take them or what. i just feel like invasion of the body snatchers. i want my body back. i let those damn pills rob my body of sooooooooooo much. feeling a bit like a failure. im sure that will pass.
Avatar m tn THURSDAY, Dec. 11 (HealthDay News) -- Two prescription drugs used to cleanse the bowel before a colonoscopy may cause kidney damage, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Thursday. The FDA said it would now require a black-box warning on the oral sodium phosphate products Visicol and OsmoPrep, alerting consumers about the risk of acute phosphate nephropathy -- a type of severe kidney injury.
Avatar n tn 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. Some types of colon cleansing present potential hazards also. I would suggest a gastroenterologist’s consultation and getting evaluated for different possibilities.Various other causes that need to be ruled out are over-use of stimulant laxatives (e.g.
Avatar m tn I think it depends on the type of enema. Using enemas frequently for constipation can cause your rectum to "forget" how to have a bowel movement naturally. Using enemas for "colon cleansing", I believe is not good, because your colon doesn't need any cleansing, it does this itself.
350945 tn?1274423121 okay ya'll, i know some folks don't like to talk about cleaning you colon out, but i'm on to something. so please just read me out. about three weeks ago i was ready to give up on my life, after all i had everything i needed to complete this task right at my finger tips. and decided that i would deal with killing myself, later on. it wasn't about the husband, kids, family or friends (uk2, chrisneedshelp, brandy, cruls, platgirl, softbaygurl, etc.
1454383 tn?1288947277 I am starting a colon cleaning diet with maximum burn and natural clean, because I had seen online at the CNN website that it really works fast.

Has anyone on Medhelp ever tried the diet before?
Avatar f tn There are many dangerous diseases are lurking around the corner and colon cancer and colon cancer are among the most dangerous. If you are not taking remedial action from now through the inclusion of a column, the power colonic cleansing in your diet.
Avatar m tn I had a similar condition and did 3 months of colon cleansing and my skin is 90% healed. The skin on out the outside indicate what is going on internally. During the cleanse I lost 25lbs because when you're detoxing you are not hungry. Once I understood I had a toxic colon and got into the cleansing with herbs and colonics I felt better and better each month, my energy came back. I am getting to do the liver cleanse which you do after the colon is healthy.
785798 tn?1237898297 Hi Everybody This year is the year that I do not ignore my health so I have been searching the internet to try and find something that can help me cleanse my stomach and intestines to bring them back up to optimal working order. In my search I have come across a product called Okra Pepsin E3 and I have read on some forums that this is a product that if it is the only thing that you do for your health then this is what you should do.
Avatar n tn Hi. Just saw my GYN for my annual exam and pap, and we discussed many things, including my family history. My father had colon cancer before age 50. He's 73, alive and kicking and gets scoped every 18 months or so. He's had polyps here and there but I've never seen him have to go through anything major since the first cancer incidence, thank god! No FAP etc.
Avatar f tn The PRESSURE EXERTED by the blood inside the colon tissue must be less than the pressure exerted by the liquid food inside the colon for water to move into the colon tissue. This is how the colon works, and the odds are your Doctor doesn't know this so he keeps giving her antidiarhea meds. Do you Live near a Super Walmart? Just go to the Vitamin section and find cayenne pepper and papaya enzyme or Bromelain!
Avatar f tn Hello I am a person who has suffered for at least 3 - 4 years with diverticulitis with on set of problems relating to my being extremely bloating, constipated you name it, and the PAIN unbearable at times. Yet I have tried everything Fiber in my diet, changing my eating habits, eating smaller amounts so I wouldn't feel as bloated or constipated. What can be done? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
569755 tn?1220872102 But this is considered the number one colon cleansing program in the world, and is very safe. There is a FAQ page on the site that answers the majority of questions regarding the cleanse if you would like to inquire further. Anyway, I hope you find a cure, whether it be this program or not (although I personally recommend it), and the link is posted below. See ya! drnatura.
Avatar f tn I had loose stools for a couple days before I went into labor with my first 2 kiddos I think it's nature's way of cleansing the colon.
Avatar f tn m a 50yr old lady that has been pretty healthy all my life except for colon cancer in 2002. That was not fun, but got through it. I went for my annual checkup last week and my Dr. did blood work on me. No elevated protein in the blood, blood sugars are fine, cholesterol is up a bit --206 (last year it was 199), but what concerns her and me...is that for me, I show an elevation in my GGT----> it is 63 and my MCV ---------> is 100.
