Stop! Don't cleanse: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed this subject with a clear "no" answer to your question.There is virtually no value to colon flushes, cleansers, enemas, irrigation machines when the technique is accomplished to "detox" or eliminate "accumulated waste" or for weight loss. There are few real health benefits, but sigificant unjustified risk. Don't use cleansers please unless prescribed. ...Read more

Not recommended: We don't recommend quickly losing large amounts of weight as that's usually water weight that's lost, leading to dehydration. "Colon cleansers" are often unmonitored laxatives which we don't recommend using regularly, or even occasionally. Check w/your doc to make sure you're otherwise healthy, including no hypothyroidism. Then increase fiber, fluids & exercise to more naturally get bowel going. ...Read more

Skip the cleanse: Although you may shed a few pounds with a "cleanse, " you need more than that to sustain weight loss. You'll need to decrease your calorie intake and increase your activity level. A simple one-time weight loss won't do that. And you could end up with significant malnutrition if you treat yourself to too many of those. Skip the cleanse and move on to the lifestyle change. You'll feel better. ...Read more

I've been taking meds for 10 yrs. For acid reflux. Will using a colon cleanse help with weight loss in the belly area?

A colon cleanse (not with enema) may help you reset your balance towards a low basic ph. This will help place you in a fat burning mode. "belly fat" especially visceral fat is difficult to burn. ...Read more

Depends: It depends on what you mean by advanced. If you mean spread to other organs, usually it will. If you mean advanced within the colon itself. Not unless it was really large. I've noticed that you seem to be asking a lot about colon cancer. If you have had a clear colonsocopy, you should be in the clear. ...Read more
