What Can I Expect Starting A Natural Colon Cleanse
Depends: Depends on what you mean by "natural colon cleanse." technically, the colon is cleansing itself all the time, as long as we eat enough fiber to give our stool bulk and insure that toxins are bound and carried out. Some people take various products for colon cleanses. Many of these contain senna or other laxative. I discourage these products unless you are constipated.
There is none: There is none and colon cleansing is a waste of time.
I'm trying acia berry natural weight loss supplement with green tea extract colon cleanse, is it effective and how ?
Healthtap Doctors: are asked not to endorse specific brands or product lines. The best approach to weight loss is physical activity and good food/ portion choices. Some of the colon cleanses can be risky for your health. Natural, fresh organic juicing with protein powder & appropriate supplementation can be beneficial - but you need to be knowledgeable about it before hand.See 2 more doctor answers
You don't need it: Your colon keeps itself clean naturally. If someone tells you that you may feel sick because of "toxic bowel settlement" or something similar and that you need a fancy laxative or bizarre enema, ignore that person. Please be careful. If you buy into the idea of needing to do weird things to "cleanse" yourself, you'll never feel well again. Find an evidence-based holist instead. Best wishes.
Can you clarify?: "Colon cleanses" are scams that target good, ordinary people and give them the idea that they need to remove "toxic bowel settlement" or something equally imaginary. If you had a bad experience after one of these, and still feel sick, a visit to a mainstream physician is in order. You'd do yourself a favor to find an evidence-based holistic practitioner in your community as wel.
It doesn't. : The idea of colon cleansing is based on a misunderstanding of anatomy & physiology. Your colon is actually outside of you. You actually surround a space through which foods pass & excrement is produced. The body takes care of its own cleansing if you have a proper diet & fluid intake. Colonic treatment is outlawed in certain states because in the wrong hands has led to bowel perforation & death.
Colon Cleanse: You have posed a great question which I commonly get asked in my practice. Colon cleanses are not necessary to cleanse your colon . In fact, some over the counter colon cleanses may lead to a condition called Melanosis Coli which is seen during a Colonoscopy. Eating a nutritious high fiber diet will help with proper bowel function. Consult with your Proctologist about your specific condition.
Yes and No: It can help release toxins, but please realize that your body naturally wants to get toxins out. When you have enough fiber in your diet, the toxins will bind and be eliminated. Make sure your liver has what it needs to detox appropriately. I do not believe colon cleanses are necessary. You can get bloating, cramping.. Don't force a detox. Support the body and it will detox on its own!See 3 more doctor answers
Not helpful: Cleansing of the colon is a common prescription by alternative medical practitioners for a variety of GI and other problems. The colon is very effective at self cleaning and really does not need this preparation. There are no clinical studies showing any positive effect of 'cleansing' although many show no effect at all.
It doesn't: In my opinion, it has no benefit.
