Stop the nonsense...: There is no evidence that your colon or other organs need "cleansing". The liver and kidneys in the human body are uniquely designed to rid us of any and all toxins. The idea that intestinal waste can poison the body is an ancient myth proven false by modern science. Save your money and try more proven and safe practices like eating healthy organic foods, exercise, yoga or meditation.
