What is the best over-the-counter meds or way to cleanse your system? Want to cleanse my system because have never done it other than a laxative.

In brief: Not necessary

Intestinal tract normally cleans itself.
Many people require laxatives or stool softners if bowels can not be regulated by diet alone. Various so called spa treatments, bowel "cleansing treatments" & high colonics etc. Vary from unnecessary to somewhat fraudulent. They only truly benefit those receiving payment. Don't ask the provider about benefits, they are biased & have mortgage payments.
