Mucoid plaque is not actually a recognized scientific term, but is used to describe any hardened materials that are “cemented” to the walls of the colon. That said, a good colon detoxifier product has natural mucilaginous properties that will soften old hardened fecal matter and any plaque-like material adhering to the walls of the colon for easy removal and also provide an excellent remedy for any inflammation or irritation in the stomach and intestines.
Colonics do work to flush loose waste and sediment from rectum and large intestine, but they have several drawbacks. They can actually weaken bowel muscles over time. Colonics don't draw toxins from bowel pockets or from tissue. They do, however, flush all bacteria out--the good as well as the bad. Colonics can also disrupt natural pH (acid/alkaline) balance) in the large intestine. Finally, depending on the skill of your therapist, you run the risk (low) that some water retained in the equipment from another patient's previous use may be injected into your colon. Yech! Should You Clean Out Your Colon?
Most people need to drink more water. Water is the universal solvent, and an insufficient amount of it causes constipation and toxicity in the bowel and kidneys. Physical activity, fever, hot or dry climates and consumption of meat and salty foods all increase the need for water. The optimal amount varies widely, usually from six to 10 glasses a day. One useful formula is to drink half your weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 120 pounds (55 kilograms), drink 60 ounces (eight glasses/two litres) of water per day. This can include pure water, herb tea or diluted fruit juices. Caffeinated beverages do not count because they are dehydrating. The best time to drink a glass of water is between meals or 20 minutes or more before eating; sip only small amounts with a meal. An important rule is: When thirsty, drink water not pop or other beverages.

With people like Madonna, Sylvester Stallone, and Pamela Anderson touting the effects of Colon Hydrotherapy or so-called colonics, the procedure has gained steam lately. Colonics, or the act of eliminating your body's waste by irrigating the colon, is a holistic therapy that's said to get the digestive system functioning better and, some say, it can even help you lose weight, among other benefits.
There are amazing benefits to being regular. When you do a colon cleanse then repopulate your microbiome with a good probiotic, you will flush all that old waste out and your digestive health will improve. You’ll fight off common illnesses, have a lot more energy, and best of all, boost your metabolism to burn fat and shed more pounds. Your vitamin, mineral and nutrient absorption will skyrocket and you’ll feel the difference – you won’t feel run down all the time. Your moods will be better and your memory sharper. Isn’t it time to purge all that old waste from your body and get started feeling better and burning fat?
Fibre recommendations are between 20 to 35 grams a day, but the modern affluent diet provides only about 10 g. (High amounts of fibre, however, should be avoided during inflammatory bowel conditions.) To meet the fibre requirement, consume daily five or more servings of vegetables and fruits, and six or more of whole grains. A half cup of fruit or vegetables or one cup of leafy, raw greens makes one serving. One grain serving is one slice of bread or one-half cup of cooked cereal, grain or pasta.
Licorice root stimulates the production of digestive fluids and bile, soothes ulcers, helps reduce intestinal inflammation, and supports the healthy function of the kidneys, liver and bladder. Its action in soothing ulcers is unique. Rather than inhibiting the release of acid, licorice stimulates the normal defense mechanisms that prevent ulcer formation in the first place. Specifically, licorice improves both the quality and quantity of the protective substances that line the intestinal tract; increases the life span of intestinal cells; and improves blood supply to the intestinal lining.40

But constipation is a severe problem in the developed world. According to a 2007 study published in Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics, the incidence of chronic constipation in the United States is just over 17 percent, or well over 50 million people.10 With a bowel movement once every five days (towards the low end definition of constipation), you're talking about 10 pounds of fecal matter stored in the colon -- at once every seven days it's 14 pounds. And statistically, we're still talking about several million people. So, my statement that 10--20 pounds is not as unusual as you might think, holds up…again, mathematically speaking. And let's keep in mind, these numbers assume that 100% of this stored fecal matter is evacuated from your bowels during your once a week movements -- a questionable assumption at best. As for the 65 pounds, I did say that has been reported "only in exceptional cases." The simple mathematical truth is that the concept of people storing pounds of fecal matter is not "false, false, false" as Dr. Carroll asserts; It's mathematically "true, true, true!"

I’m wondering if anyone who has left comments like, can I eat during this cleanse and what are the amounts of ingredients to use, and my favorite the repeated question of can I use essential oils. Did you even read the full article?? Also try reading all of the Q&A from other people. No wonder the Doctor who gave this away for free quit answering questions. Read it in full you will find the answers and as

Maybe that’s because of the days prior to the flush day has to be well prepared to have succes on the flush day. I therefore have difficulty finding a good protocol for someone with bowel issues/adrenal fatigue (bloating, constipation, gas; all due to adrenal and thyroid issues that cause metabolic and endocrine problems and of course the Peutz Jeghers syndrome)
So glad I found this, Iv been thinking about it for a while. I have probably got IBS. Going in for a colonoscopy because of constipation and runny bowels plus lots of bleeding. I will wait till after my results of course but I will definitely give it a go now. I imagined it would be lying on a bed with my butt sticking out for all to see and somewhat uncomfortable and maybe a bit painful. But after reading this Im not worried at all. Thanks for sharing your experience.

Like the open system, the closed system comes with the creature comfort of a massage table. The major differences with the closed system are that the procedure is totally controlled by a therapist, the tube is significantly larger (about the width of a 50 cent coin), and rather than a set amount of water, the therapist continues to pump water into the bowel until you indicate you can’t take in any more, which James says tends to be at about 40 litres.

Everything you need for detoxifying your body is available in your local grocery store if not already in your fridge. You don’t need to book an expensive appointment at a health spa or anything of that sorts. Food provides the natural pathway to detoxification. We’ll identify the top eight natural colon cleansing foods that do wonders for your digestive health. You probably already eat one or more of these items on a daily basis, so you’re partially on track without realizing it.

I have been getting about 2 colonics each month for almost 8 years. It started when I had to go to the ER because I hadn’t gone number 2 in 3 weeks. Loooong story short, after following all the doctor’s instructions I still couldn’t go. The doctor said that the next step was surgery. That’s when I got desperate. I was in Las Vegas and went to the same place as the earlier reader (where they give you home made soup at the end). They saved my butt (literally)! I am so grateful that colonics exist for people who can’t go regularly, especially when bowel surgery is a real option. A few tips before getting a colonic would be to avoid anything that gives you gas, take a good probiotic supplement, drink a lot of water, and don’t eat 2 hours prior. While you’re getting the colonic: RELAX and BREATHE, let go of the physical and emotional waste, and remember that what comes out is better out of your body than in. Enjoy!
All the toxins that you eat, drink, breathe, and absorb through your skin end up processed by your gastrointestinal system, kidneys, and liver. If they're not forced from your organs as quickly as possible, they can wreak havoc on your body's systems. By releasing stagnant body waste, you reduce the causes and the risk of polyps, cysts and cancerous growths in your colon and gastrointestinal tract.
I have started my journey to a new healthy me starting this past Saturday and let me tell you, today is Monday and already I can feel the difference ; I have more energy, my minor body aches has decreased I can't wait to see my waist line and stomach also make a dramatic change!.....I am saying thank you Teami in advance but however I did take a before pic just to see for myself..
There is a hole in the chair/bed where the speculum and water come from. It is this same hole where all of the waste goes down. There is a view-tube beside you so that you can see everything that passes out of you. What surprised me was that after the initial “movement” (which was pretty standard) there was not that much that actually came out of me. No giant clumps the size of an orange, mostly just the clean water coming out exactly as it came in. After awhile, this made me anxious. Why wasn’t anything happening? Then, I had another smaller movement, but that was it for the length of the procedure. If anything else came out, it wasn’t visible. I had the expectation that something major would be removed and there would be a lot of movement over the course of the treatment. In retrospect, I think that having that expectation was detrimental. It caused me unnecessary anxiety during the process.

A homemade colon cleanse can help flush out some of the toxins in your body that could be contributing to your discomfort and also offer natural relief from constipation. Just plan a day when you do not need to leave home so that you are able to adjust to the colon cleansing changes in your body and the elimination of waste as you begin the detox and internal cleansing process.


It will remove old fecal matter and waste from the colon, heavy metals and drug residues, strengthen the colon muscle, repair any damage such as herniations and inflammations of the colon and small intestine, eliminate the presence of polyps and other abnormal growths, rebuild "friendly" bacteria cultures that ideally should line virtually every square inch of the tube --  from mouth to anus.

I get colonics every six months. I usually do them in three sessions increments. I love them. I have heard over doing them van be bad as they do flush out good bacteria but I think doing them as part of a spring cleaning and cleanse is very beneficial. I would highly recommend them. You just reminded me that it’s time for me to schedule my series. I’m glad you tried it. I’ve never done it for weight loss so I have never actually weighed myself. I will have to try it. I do feel like I have more energy and almost cleaner. If you can even feel that! Ha! Thanks for sharing!

Aside from juice or vegetable-rich diets, there are other foods that are often included within a colon cleanse diet Whole grains are a good way to bulk up internal waste and help move it out of the system in a quick and efficient manner. This includes brown rice, sprouted wheat, and grains such as amaranth and quinoa that are easy to digest yet provide essential energy. It’s recommended when on a colon cleanse diet to stay away from excessive spices or too many ingredients. Raw, whole foods tend to be the best way to go for purifying and detoxifying your system.


This depends on your symptoms but generally you should commit to a cleanse once or twice a year, under the care of a health professional. Post-antibiotic treatment is a must, as you need to nourish the gut and replace all of the healthy bacteria that’s been wiped out by antibiotics. After holidays is also a good time to cleanse as alcohol and treat foods wreak havoc on gut bacteria and gut lining. Post-cleanse you should continue to include gut-friendly foods and nutrients as a part of your regular diet.
A number of studies suggest that psyllium may also be effective in lowering cholesterol,28 promoting weight loss (it makes you feel full), and aiding in the relief of numerous other conditions. For example: studies have shown that psyllium can significantly decrease serum glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin in diabetic outpatients.29 (Note: Psyllium can make tetracycline antibiotics less effective, so consult your doctor for guidance before using psyllium while on a regimen of antibiotics.)
These “Frankenfoods” are loaded with artificial ingredients that have names you can’t even pronounce. And they’re missing one key ingredient – fiber. So they sit in your gut for days or even weeks, fermenting and rotting instead of digesting and providing nutrients. Constipation, inflammation, nutrient deficiencies, bloating and weight gain are just some of the results.
