You don't: You don't need a colon cleanser! if your colon is damaged or sick, this needs to be treated. Otherwise, there is nothing to cleanse your colon from.

Can you die from overdosing on colon cleanser pills?

Can you die from overdosing on colon cleanser pills?

Yes, don't!: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed colon "cleansers" with a clear "no" answer. 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, as you've questioned. ...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.

Then increase fiber, fluids & exercise to more naturally get bowel going. ...Read more

Not safe: Unless you are using a doctor prescribed bowel prep for colonoscopy, I would not recommend any product for " colon cleansing" , which is potentially dangerous. Serious imbalances of fluids and electrolytes in your body can result form using these products. ...Read more
