A lot of health stores sell liver cleansing and colon cleaning regiments. Is there a cheaper way of detoxifying?
For constipation, does eating more fats and oils (such as plenty of olive oil) a good treatment? Does bile secreted after oily food make bowels move?
What is more suitable for chronic constipation, colonoscopy or colonic irrigation/colon cleansing? Which is more useful for eliminating constipation?
None of the above!: If you want to eliminate constipation, you should leave your colon alone and stop sticking tubes and other foreign liquids into it.

A healthy [mostly plant based and whole food] diet, a daily multivitamin, and a daily chelating agent such as alpha lipoic..A good routine for 23 y\o?

Danger Danger Danger: Nope. First injecting significant levels of caffeine by enema? Not in any way a smart or health decision.

Coffee ememas. Good for you? Bad for you? Trying natural remedies for overall health and this sounds like a good way to cleanse your colon. Thoughts?
Coffee enema: Like drinking coffee, coffee enemas can be neurologically stimulating and result in caffeine dependence. Complications may include perforation of the wall of the intestines, proctocolitiis electrolyte imbalance, septicemia, heart failure and death.
