Colon Cleansing Tea
Likely just laxative: Most of these teas contain senna (cascara), which is a natural stimulant laxative. It is fine to use once in a while for occasional constipation, but chronic use can cause your colon to become dependent on the chemical to move at all.

Your body: The concept 'cleanse' or 'detox' uses the idea that your body is full of toxins when in fact your organs are responsible for eliminating extraneous substances.

Excess Colon Water: This question leads to a question. How do you define excess colonic cleanses. This common practice has no medical benefits.
