Does Colonic Irrigation Work
Not a fan: I am not a fan of these techniques. Your colon is made to handle a high bacterial load and eliminate wastes. Proper nutrition and a high fiber diet with good hydration help it to work better in doing this. Aggressive cleanses can upset electrolyte balance and lead to colon irritation as well as upset normal bacterial flora (and lead to things like c-difficile colitis). ...Read more
Don't waste your $: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed this subject with a clear "no" answer to colonics. There is virtually no value to colon flushes, cleansers, enemas, irrigation machines when the technique is accomplished to "detox" or eliminate "accumulated waste." the "no" response also applies to liver detoxes! there are few real health benefits, but sigificant unjustified risk. Don't "cleanse". ...Read more
No: There is no need for and no benefit of doing colon cleansings. Your colon cleanses itself by having bowel movements. There is no buildup of toxins anywhere in the colon. Colon cleansings are unnecessary and can be unhealthy. Stick with a high-fiber diet for good colon health! Good luck. ...Read more
Juice water : You need more fluids .Get a more detailed answer ›
Scam: This is a health fraud in which the operator shows normal peristalsis or some other normal but unattractive thing about the lower bowel and tells you it's at the root of your ill-health. Folks feel better because of the sweet talk from the operator. If someone mentions "toxic bowel settlement" or anything similar, phone your local district attorney. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unnecessary : This is just-juices for a while, more benign than some of the other cleanses. You don't need it. Your body and your internal organs clean themselves naturally. Anyone telling you to drink something weird or do something goofy is at best deceived and at worst playing a cruel prank on you -- some of the "health cleanses" on the internet can land you in the intensive care unit. ...Read more
rids some poop: Yeah, this was a popular idea in ancient egypt, but was disproved decades ago. You will get rid of some stool. No one ever measured "toxins" supposedly removed before and after the rx to see if it worked. Pt of mine insisted on high colonics as bowel prep for colonoscopy-failed; had redo the prep and the procedure. Empty bowel may look flatter, maybe you feel better, but not detoxed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Scheduled for colonoscopy but afraid magnesium citrate won't clear my colon. Docqulace and bisacodyl failed to evacuate colon. Will the citrate work?
AlwaysAGuess; agent,: dose & response relationships with all the usual complex individual variables. A full bottle of citrate of magnesia will likely be far more effective than the other agents, especially if one stays physically active, fasts, take 2 days prior & chase with another bottle 1 day prior. Just keep up clear liquids. Awareness of heart beats both a focus & a self-distraction (from other greater) issues. ...Read more
For certain problems: Peppermint has many benefits: it reduces gas, bloating & nausea & helps abdominal & menstrual cramps. Enteric-coated peppermint oil capsules are proven effective for relieving spasms in irritable bowel syndrome. However, peppermint can aggravate reflux/heartburn so may not be appropriate if you have that (though enteric coating may prevent that effect).
