Cleansers: I am assuming you are speaking about colonic types of treatments whether in an enema or oral cleanse formulation. There can be a number of negative effects on the GI system. The main acute issue with rapid transit loss of electrolytes and changes in ph balance of blood. The most negative effect resulting from this is often neurologic, sometimes irreversible. Use caution.
