In brief: No colonics please
The bacteria in your bowel have a role and are supposed to be there to help with many physiologic functions.
Eating plenty of fiber (vegetables, fruits, whole grains etc) is usually sufficient to create bulk and empty your bowels. Published data shows that colonics are dangerous ( and i would add, a real waste of money ).

In brief: Misconception
This is a common misconception and used by non-professionals to sell their products.
Waste does not build up in your intestines, unless there is an obstruction.
