Colon cleansing products over the counter

Common Questions and Answers about Colon cleansing products over the counter


Avatar f tn I took a look at the 'Nature's Secret' website and it is covered in the kind of semi-naturalistic, somewhat medical sounding jargon that is common in over the counter 'natural supplements' of that ilk. The 'detoxification' stuff is nonsense, so forget about that. Apparently it contains a lot of fiber, so it may or may not help to keep you regular, but it's hard to say. It may or may not be harmful; again, it is difficult to say how such products will affect your health.
Avatar n tn If you are taking oral cleansers, do be very wary of the over the counter type. They are usually full of either psyillium or similar, or they are a laxative type of herbal remedy. Which again, honestly, you can make up yourself for a fraction of the cost! Most medications are absorbed in the early part of the digestive process and are not usually affected by the colon cleansers. When in doubt, always check with your treating doctor.
Avatar n tn The toxinout is a heavy metal cleanse that targets the liver and kidneys in particular. The colonix is a colon cleanse to help cleanse the colon and ensure all build up in the colon is eliminated. I hope you are doing well considering this is an old link - just thought I would share what I am using and what has helped for me. I am sure you are doing well and achieved the good health you wanted. It would be great if you could let us know how you are doing.
Avatar m tn You are also going to be bending over forward in the shower. The shower is not a good place to find out that bending over makes you dizzy. Practice it first before you get in a shower, no matter how young and fit and healthy you assume that you are. Stand in front of a bed or couch or a carpeted floor. Slowly bend forward as far as you can comfortably bend, and look between your legs at the crotch. Slowly stand up erect.
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 f tn The more you know about herbs the more you can make these decisions, but people should be aware that not all companies are the same, not all products are the same, and not all natural products are in fact natural.
Avatar f tn I'm also concerned with the clients budget. I do colon hydrotherapy for my clients as well am familiar with the different colon cleansing as well thank you for the mention. I don't particularly want this client to do this as he has a lot of large ulcerations in his lining and do not want to further irritate the weak lining as well as push any debris out of the lumen to go systemic. Do you know of any products that work particularly well on amoebas?? Thank you.
921323 tn?1268679412 But generalities don't help all that much when you're trying to fit into that bridesmaid's dress or interview suit and remember the bowl of vanilla ice cream that you inhaled at two in the morning. Especially if you're trying to lose a lot of weight, it seems insurmountable. Any weight loss plan should be undertaken under the supervision of a physician, but it's all right if you take the initiative. Try approaching it by making a few small changes that you can live with and stick with.
Avatar m tn Don't take ANY over-the-counter laxatives (unless fiber-based) Don't strain while trying to go Don't eat junk food Don't drink unless it's some wine (red is best) with dinner Cut down/don't smoke -- bowel irritant, likewise coffee or make it weaker, wean off Limit dairy and high fat foods, explore substitutes Don't drink anything ice cold and NEVER with meals Do read up on: food-combining, pro-biotics, acidophilous, high-fiber diets, etc.
Avatar n tn Although I don't suffer from GERD or any other type of digestive disorders or acid reflux, I decided to try an acid reducing over the counter medication. THIS WAS THE MAGIC BULLET! 75mg of Ranitidine (Zantac)----one first thing in the morning and one before dinner at night, and the arrhythmias WENT AWAY COMPLETELY.
Avatar f tn Over the counter remedies are of limited benefit for anything more than mild acne. See your doctor for a prescription strength gel such as Differin (adapalene) or Duac (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide). Alternatively, a course of oral antibiotics such as doxycycline or minocyline will kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin. Female acne patients may benefit from taking an anti-androgen contraceptive pill such as Yasmin, which blocks the effects of male hormones on the skin.
Avatar n tn The ER is covering their butt by wanting him back over there, but at the same time they did nothing for him to help pass the impaction for over 13 hours. Yes the tests are necessary, but so is action. I have read about Colon Cleansing products and many say those are just scams, but at this point with an impaction I'm not sure even if they really did work if they'd help or make things worse anyway. Thoughts? Thank you for anyone reading. This is very important to respond to fast.
529981 tn?1212853666 My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair.
Avatar n tn The differnce bettween the Rx from the doctor and over the counter Rx is, the physcian actually kills the fungus. Over the counter brand only prevents the fungs( it will come back and will have advanced, making it more hard to kill) it can began to build an immunity to the anti-biotics.Every situation is different so this info may not be for you.I hope this info was helpful to someone, somewhere. Just remember better days will come. P.S: Good luck clumsy on all future endeavors.
Avatar n tn Now when I have this problem I use a product called Peg-Lyte Powder. You get it over the counter at the pharmacy (but you don't need a perscription) and what it does is it completely flushes out the bowel. Maybe if you cleaned yourself right out you might be able to start paying attention to what you are eating and see if you notice what gives you excessive gas. You can't use this all the time but maybe it's worth a try. Do you use any potein supplements?
Avatar f tn The key to the cure is the Colon Cleanse and the Digestion Plus. This has been a miracle for me! I hope someone reads this and benefits. The products may seem expensive on the Arbonne website, but I can show you how to get them for 20-50% off. I truly hope this helps...I know how hard it is to deal with acne, especially as an adult.
Avatar m tn Keep the stools firm with Loperimide (over the counter) Immodium). I did not take it every day, but I did take it the minute I felt loose or soft stools were on the way and the minute I had loose or soft stools. (Others have used fiber but check with the pharmacy to be sure that is okay with your Incivek.) If you read my other post pertaining to stools, I am sure it contained the the use of Huggies baby wipes to keep the butt spotless (every little bit on the skin will irritate).
Avatar n tn The newest and most successful product to keep blepharitis under control is TherTears SterLid which both removeds the oil and debris but also is antibacterial. It is over the counter, available on the internet. (disclaimer-I have no financial interest in this product). Works better than baby shampoo.
Avatar n tn This Saturday i am going to completely clean out my colon and start it all over. I will you use the Miralax Laxative twice every day and see if it helps me with this problem. My doctor says she thinks i have irritable bowel syndrome. I have heard of this from a friend of mine but she had different symptoms. If this goes well i'll tell you.
Avatar m tn I don't know if lactulose is available over the counter in the US, but some studies have shown that lactulose (which is both a laxative as well as a good pre-biotic) in combination with antiobiotics (Rifaximin in particular) results in better outcomes for retaining beneficial bacteria than just taking antibiotics alone (Google "Use of lactulose for creating of the new class of antibiotics" or "Antibiotics for the Treatment of Hepatic Encephalopathy").
Avatar n tn once that is over insert a hemorrhoidal suppositories into the rectum it will shrink the hemorrhoids. You might have to use preparation H Ointment to put on the hemorrhoid to push them in so you can insert the hemorrhoidal suppositories..Hemorrhoidal Suppositories is by a company by the name of Healthy Accents telephone number is 1-866-322-2439 ....I brought the medicine at Food Loin Supermarket..It has only been 2 weeks but no smell so far...I am not a doctor just a victim..
Avatar n tn For some reason the splenic flexure on the upper left quadrant of the colon, up to the rib cage and around the side fills up with gas and extends upward to the diaphram. The gas is trapped and cannot be expelled. Thus causing severe pain and cramping not unsimilar to a severe muscle spasm. This was found by a simple x-ray of the abdomen, then I had to have an emergency colonoscopy, to find out the cause of the obstruction.
Avatar n tn I wake in the morning and I can instantly tell if my first sneeze is normal or if it’s one that’s telling me it’s the sign of things to come for the rest of the day. If it’s the latter, a grey cloud appears over me and won’t budge until the next day. Even though I know they’ll do little good, I OD on a host of antihistamines – Benadryl, Loratadine, Clarityn, Beconase nasal spray etc. However, the sneezing continues, coupled with a feeling of fatigue and lethargy, until the early evening.
Avatar f tn You can buy this over the counter and just experiment with the dose. I did when I was first tested then kept forgetting to take it- Lyme brain - but sure won't now.
Avatar n tn Try 1% clotrimazole cream (athletes foot/jock itch), over the counter. If your very red and inflamed use 1% cortisone cream, over the counter, until redness is gone, continue with clotrimazone. Prescription Lotrisone is too strong, not to be used on your face. Cut the sugar. Mae sure you're not iron-deficient. Buy good probiotics, ESPECIALLY if you'r taking or have taken antibiotics, or eat tons of FRESH, not canned, sauerkraut.
1358341 tn?1282213443 She also gets ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE, I had it compounded into a capsule and I mix it in her food twice a day, 2 hours prior to others meds or two hours after, this was prescribed by the vet to filter out excess phosphorus that is bad for kidney cats..Aluminum hydroxide is actually an anti acid that you can buy over the counter here, it usually also contains Magnesium Chloride, I believe..
Avatar f tn Since most people with autoimmune conditions have no idea which branch of their immune system is dominant, they can actually make their condition worse by taking over the counter immune boosters. Lets say for example you were Th1 dominant and you catch a cold. A friend tells you that Echinacea helped them so you take it yourself. Unknowingly you would be flaring up your already dominant Th1 response and cause even more destruction to your thyroid gland.
