In brief: 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.
