Late night TV is filled with great advertisement, isn't it? You can get knives, food dehydrators, foot supports, but the most I've been seeing lately are ads about colon cleansing. They talk about people carrying 10-25 lbs. of build up. My first thought...uh, gross. Since I apparently have nothing better to do I went online to research what they are talking about, but it's hard to get a straight story. Google has been turning up page after page of new age medicine sites proclaiming how great these cleansing systems are, but I haven't found one western medicine site that says anything about anything. What do people here know about these detox programs?

Good grief.
Colonic irrigation/enema's or whatever you want to call them have been around for centuries. My brother in law swears by a coffe enema every 2 months, personaly, I just like to drink a latte every now and again.

They do say that you have allsorts of stuff coating your poop-shoot, and that red meat can stay in your colon for up to 10 years. Like Dennis Leary said, thats value for money

If you think sticking a tube up your butt and flushing yourself out with liquid will perk you up, then to my knowledge it will do you no harm. i would just prefer to increase the fibre in my diet and let things work themselves out without the discomfort of an internal A$$ jacuzzi

Why not do it the other way? it would be much much healthier

and by "the other way" I mean to do the following:

eat oatmeal every morning
have a salad and only a salad for lunch
have a light dinner of yet more salad
snack on high fiber cereal throughout the day.

avoid all cheese, red meat, and other such colon slammers.

get your proteins from soy and nuts only

try that a for a week or two and you'll be feeling much better and all without the joy of having a garden hose up your business end

Good grief No.2

Given the choice of the above or the irrigation, go for the irrigation, at least you wont be compromising your nutritional needs in the process.

Years ago I read about this in one of the Men's Health Magazine. One of the editors went on a weekend to a camp where they do this. The graphic story of what came out and how he felt through the whole thing was incredible. When he left he had lost so much weight and felt so weak I just can't see doing this.

Years ago I had my bowels checked due to problems and I was not allowed to eat for over 24 hours. The night before the tests I was to take some "magic" pooper pills and drink this citrus pooper juice and let me tell you, five hours on the toilet was no pleasure. I cannot imagine getting filled up with liquids and then spilling them out. Rinse and repeating repeatedly. Can any body say BURN!

Since you asked a legitimate question check this out

http://www.healingdaily.com/

If your serious about colon detoxing then read EVERYTHING before starting a detox program!

Quote:

due to stress and diet, most Americans have many hardened layers of mucoid plaque. The healthy colon weighs about 4 pounds. One autopsy revealed a colon choked with 40 pounds of impacted mucoid plaque! A proper colon cleanse and detoxification program prepares your body for optimal health by removing the mucoid plaque.





just my opinion but I find that the less stress there is on your organs the better you perform on an athletic level.

good luck, hope all is well with your pooper!

Living on oatmeal and leafy salad for any length of time will leave you deficient in protein. Your body will then break down muscle tissue into its base amino acids in an attempt to recycle said amino's to make up the deficiency. This catabolic effect leads to an increase in toxins in the liver/kidneys. Detoxing is toxic.
Takes more than a plate of salad and a granola bar to susain a healthy vegetarian diet. i have no problem with omnivorous or vegitarian lifestyles- I do have a problem with poor nutritional balance being promoted as a healthy option.
