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 n tn If colon cleansing was beneficial, why wouldn’t our doctors order them?
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 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.
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.
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 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 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.
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. The products are cheep to buy as a trial and this is my second day on the pills. I only want to clean out my body and loose a bit of the belly flab, is this diet as safe and simple as I had heard? Has anyone on Medhelp ever tried the diet before?
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!!!
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.
Avatar m tn Colon cleanse and acia berry concoctions can be very dangerous and I suggest getting a doctor's ok before using any products of this type.
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 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 looked at digestion, probiotics, acid reflux, colon cleansing etc.... Lastly I had a stool test for everything (such as allergies, parasites, etc...) everything looked good except found I had H Pylori. treated it. STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM! What the heck is wrong with me? (and dont tell me IBS.
403399 tn?1201833095 AFTER you've gotten through the withdrawals, drive to GNC and purchase the Cleansing Formula.. it has NO laxative in it, completely safe, doesn't cause diarrhea, and it cleanses the liver, kidneys, and safely the colon as well.. I've been taking it for over a year now.. you use it for daily maintenance.. I've never felt better in my entire life! I started taking it over a year ago because my liver and kidneys were hurting and acting up because of the long term Tramadol usage..
Avatar n tn Hi Pasq, You've asked a more difficult question then you might imagine. I assume by "colon cleanser" you mean enema .... or do you mean laxative? The issue with suggesting enemas is they are not for everyone. If you are a candidate then other things need to be considered, like do you retain water, do you have a cardiac problem or any other medical conditions that might determine the best one for you?
Avatar m tn I have never taken a pill and yes I am virgin. I have gone to many sites and i think it can be that the colon is irritated but all the questions that have been asked before are from people that are way older than me, so it's kind of embarrassing.
Avatar f tn If you dont call your dr and pick up a stool test and hve it examined by a pathologist. Your body is cleansing itself, it sheds the lining of your colon and thats a good thing. Better out than in.
Avatar f tn Well, then, some people swear by cleansing and fasting and that sort of thing, clearing out the digestive tract. If you are miserable with your digestion, I can see no harm in giving something like that a shot! Also, I had three docs looking at me when I had IBS, no one knew what it was, and it as ME who figured it out, so I applaud your research into your condition, could be you'll figure it out like I did.
