1454383 tn?1288947277 My hairdresser has been doing this type of dieting on a regulat basis. Although she says that the weight really hasn't melted off as she had hoped, she continues to do it because she feels so much better, more energized. Good luck!
Avatar f tn No, not just for a colonoscopy. The colon cleansing done for a colonoscopy is very quick acting and very strong pharmaceutical products, not what is used in natural colon cleansing, which takes longer and is usually much gentler. If it works too quickly, yes, you'll get dehydrated, but colon cleansing does help rid the body of toxins that stick to the walls of the digestive system. One way to do this is to fast; no food in, food out.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your replies. I have since decided to not bother with cleansing diets, as I eat a healthy and balanced diet anyways with lots of fiber, vegetables/fruit, --no more apple cider vinegar, legumes, fish, lean and organically raised meats, lots of water, avoiding dairy and soy, and so on.

369861 tn?1306275686 html Natural diuretic More and more people are resorting to natural foods and herbs that exhibit diuretic properties instead of diuretic pills. Moderation is the watchword even in the case of natural diuretics. Natural diuretics can aid in removal of excess fluids from the body and aid in treating of sciatica, kidney stone, lymphatic swelling, PMS, gonorrhea, liver disorders and high blood pressure. Green tea is a natural diuretic food that has been in use for centuries in China.
Avatar f tn One more thing I forgot to mention, have you tried yogurt? It tends to help because of the "live cultures" in it that help the stomach and digestion of foods. There is even one specifically for that issue, but I can't seem to recall the name at the moment. You'll probably see it at the store. That is, if you're not lactose-intolerant.
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.

Avatar f tn Vaccinations have mercury in them and can make you very sick. Google "mercury poisoning" and you can get information on this. There are detoxification programs you can follow to help get the mercury out of your body. I followed one by Tom Mcquire and it worked for me. One of the best vitamins for detoxification is vitamin C. I take at least 3 grams a day and some programs recommend more.
Avatar f tn I doubt it. For one thing, you'd have to know what exactly caused it to know what had to be leached out of the system. For another, chelation is mostly used for cholesterol or heavy metals, not just anything -- you have to have something that attaches to and leaches out the culprit. Many toxins are leached out in another way, by cleansing the liver, where the toxins are stored, and by cleansing the colon and the blood, for the same reason. This isn't chelation, but cleansing.
Avatar m tn I am scheduled for another treatment but I would like to know if this is accepted by the medical field as a safe and effective method of colon cleansing. Or some comments from others who have been through this before. Please respond.
Avatar n tn 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.
