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. ...Read more
Be careful: There is no evidence that a 'colon cleanse' improves digestive health. In fact, some colon cleanse techniques can cause dehydration and other problems requiring hospitalization. Companies that sell these products may use misleading advertising to suggest that the colon collects toxic residue or build-up. A balanced diet, fiber, and keeping hydrated are better ways to maintain digestive health. ...Read more
Blockage/Bleeding: Depending on their size and location, colon cancers may cause the above problems. The bleeding tends to be very slow, like a dripping faucet, and may not be evident by sight.

Support the body and it will detox on its own! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
What is the best way to cleanse the liver, kidney and intestines? Does the colon hydrotherapy really help to remove parasites and toxins from the intestines?

Parasites can not be cleared by enema....need to take medicine to kill and eliminate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If the body has a natural tendency to heal itself, why must physicians surgically remove parts of the colon or intestine?
Healing: The body does have the ability to heal itself, but needs support and stronger interventions at times. If there are tumors in the colon, vascular damage, or extreme inflammation that kills part of the colon, those parts must be removed so that the rest can function well (and so can you!). Most doctors are as conservative as possible in such surgeries, and do not recommend them without cause. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Keeps it Acid: The stomach cells keep producing hydrochloric acid (hcl) to keep the ph about 2-3. When you eat food, the vagus nerve triggers the stomach cells to secrete more acid.
