Constipation is no laughing matter. If you aren’t moving your bowels after every meal you eat, then you are, by definition, constipated. Your body has a reflex, known as the gastrocolic reflex, which stimulates movement in the colon when you start eating. The amount of food you eat and the temperature of your food and drinks affect the strength of this reflex. With high fat meals and cold drinks the reflex is stronger, producing a bowel movement more quickly. Caffeine and fructose may also speed up this reflex to the point of being uncomfortable. This is where Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) starts for many people.

Yogurt is a natural probiotic that helps in restoring the beneficial gut flora (9). Your intestines contain some good bacteria, the absence of which may cause a series of digestive and health problems. Yogurt is also a rich source of antioxidants and helps in the natural detoxification of your body (10). The daily consumption of yogurt helps in maintaining the level of probiotics in your body, which, in turn, improves digestion and cleanses the colon.
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?
Following the session, I didn’t feel very different. I’d once read a post-colonic account where the writer recalled feeling so clean afterward that she craved nothing other than water and cucumbers. Well, that wasn’t the case for me! I was hungry! Sandra said that I should stick to soft food for the rest of the day so I had some boiled squash and rice, but I was craving a thick slice of pizza. My stomach did feel empty, but not much more than it would after any substantial “movement.”

You should eat the easiest to digest foods first in each meal, and slowly move towards the more complex. Think of a highway; if the slowest cars are in front they’ll hold up the faster vehicles behind them and cause a traffic jam. The same goes for your food. Eat those fastest to digest first, and save the tougher to digest foods for the second half of your meal.
I was diagnosed with delayed stomach empyting and have been deathly nauseaous. My gastic specialist prescribed Reglan - 3 times daily and protonix - twice daily - before meals. In order to complete the cleanse - how do I deal with the rx and the cleanse time table? I want to complete the cleanse because I realize that the rx is only for a limited time and that it isn't actually SOLVING the problem. Is this cleanse compatible with this rx? (For a long time, I thought that the nausea was from my gall bladder surgery nearly a year ago. Drs kept telling me that "my system was still adjusting to no gall bladder.") My diagnosis was confirmed by a stomach study scan. My physical therapist recommended your cleanse.
Some say disease begins in the colon. In fact, the colon is the third most common site for cancer and colon cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death among Canadians. The colon, or large intestine, is our fueling station as well as our waste management system. Here, in the last five feet of intestinal tract, toxins can take two courses. A clean, healthy colon efficiently eliminates toxins. A clogged, unhealthy colon allows toxins to back up into the liver and bloodstream, polluting the entire system.
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.

I recommend a summer and winter liver and blood cleaning and a fall and spring intestinal cleansing combined with a heavy metal detox. Alternating these cleansing programs promotes optimal wellness and vitality throughout the entire body, plus offsets disease and signs of aging. If it helps get you in the mood, think of these as seasonal cleanses: summer, spring, winter, and fall.
Diseases of the digestive system have reached an all-time high in the United States and are still on the rise. In 1985, 60--70 million Americans were affected by digestive disorders.2 Today, it's over 100 million. In fact, digestive diseases are among the leading causes of doctor visits, hospitalizations, and disability in the United States each year. These conditions span a wide spectrum of disorders that affect the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas, as well as obesity and other nutrition-related disorders. In 2004, more than 35 percent of all emergency and outpatient hospital visits--some 100 million, as already mentioned--were associated with a diagnosis of a digestive disease.3 The number two cancer among men and women combined is colorectal cancer, trailing only lung cancer. The incidence of diverticulosis has increased dramatically from just 10 percent of the adult population over the age of 45 who had this disease in 1952 to an astounding "Just about everyone who reaches age 90 has many diverticula" according to the latest home edition of the Merck Manual. 4 In other words, according to the latest medical studies, virtually all American adults will eventually have diverticulosis of the large intestine if they live long enough.
In 1998, the FDA reclassified several herbal laxatives including senna, aloe, and cascara sagrada as category III, meaning they required further research. Research for senna proceeded, but no results or comments were forwarded to the FDA for aloe or cascara sagrada. As a result, in 2002, senna was once again listed as category I (approved for over-the-counter use), but aloe and cascara sagrada, despite hundreds of years of history and being driven by similar anthraquinones, are now listed as category II (insufficient data).14
If you are struggling to lose weight I’d also recommend a cleanse. The latest research suggests that an unbalanced and unhealthy gut microbiome, caused by a poor diet and overuse of antibiotics, produces toxins called lipopolysaccharides (LPS), triggering inflammation and insulin resistance, which then promotes weight gain. We often we focus on kilojoules for weight loss, but the truth is, without a healthy gut, weight loss can be a battle.
A person who does a cleanse may initially lose a few pounds, but that is a temporary loss, resulting from the removal of water weight and stool, and not from a permanent loss of fat. Although it could be motivating to see results on the scale for a few days, cleansing is not a long-term solution to a weight problem, Wolf said. [5 Experts Answer: Is There Such Thing as a Healthy Juice Cleanse?]
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! The dangers of colon cleansing
