In brief: Not a proven fact

This is not proven and in fact it can be very dangerous due to risk of perforation and also risk of sipping out normal bacteria and causing superinfection with c diff.
Just increase fiber intake to 30-40 gm a day and that will keep things moving and help with keeping all toxin levels under control.
