In brief: No
Normal human's have self-clearing (like self-cleaning) intestinal tracts.
After a person swallows food, the food is processed and moved along from the throat all the way to his anus, without any help or interference from him. If a person is eating a healthy, balanced diet (a doctor can help determine that, if needed), no colon cleansing is needed. Such cleansing is unnatural and may not be safe.
