How Do You Know Your Colon Is Clean
Not necessary: The desire to clean the colon relates to ancient medical theories about internal toxicity derived from the colon. The colon, thank you, is fully capable of taking care of itself and needs no cleansing. You can pay a great deal of money to alternate practitioners for colon cleansing but this is money badly spent. If you think you have medical problems, see your family doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Even it there was, it serves no useful purpose.
OTC laxatives: If needing to clear the poop out of the colon, the most popular way is just to use otc laxatives that are available in any store. One should talk to one's doctor about such needs, because in some people, there can be a serious disorder blocking the poop in the intestines.
Can you do this cleanse and not have a procedure done just for the purpose if cleaning out you colon?
Why?: 1 time 4 a procedure every 5 years is enough 4 anyone. U can buy mag so4 oyc & sleep by the toilet, and u will b clean. However in doing so u loose electrolytes & if don every week this can cause serious 2 fatal consequences. Stick 2 just doing it b 4 a procedure! High fiber & proper hydration will help things move along, no laxatives!
I am on a nerve blocker and therefore the gentle colon cleaning products don't work for. What product would work?
MIRALAX (polyethylene glycol): Softeners plus laxatives may help you-the softener keeps your stools soft while the laxative helps to push it along and out. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) (or it's generic) has been a godsend to many and should help you-- if not, please see your doc as something else may be going on!
Bowel Purge: The absence of solid fecal matter as well as light yellow or clear liquid output from the bowels would suggest clean or cleared intestines. Many agents are used to purge the bowel prior to colonoscopy and the endoscopist looks for the aforementioned to determine the quality of the bowel preparation. Bear in mind that by definition, the bowel is not “clean” as it is full of normal bacterial flora.
Bowel Prep: There are several medications and preps that can be prescribed to clean the colon or prep the colon before surgery. Some surgeon's do not prep the colon before surgery as there is some evidence of no benefit to this practice.
Ignore her: Your aunt is wrong. Colon cleansing serves no useful purpose.
A lot of health stores sell liver cleansing and colon cleaning regiments. Is there a cheaper way of detoxifying?
No need: You don't need to detoxify your body. Your body is designed to get rid of toxins. Companies that sell you detoxifying products are only after your money.See 1 more doctor answer
Maybe not: Hopefully it is very cleaned out, but that does not always happen.
