I have had Crohn's disease for almost 40 years. For the last decade it's been fairly well controlled re: gastric symptoms via diet and low-dose naltrexone (LDN) -- though my immune system problems are not. After two surgeries long ago I'm missing a good-sized chunk of my small intestine. As I have a short bowel I have AT LEAST two bowels movements a day, very often three, sometimes four (usually not diarrhea). My colon has not been involved in the disease.

Hi Sharon (and anyone else who reads this), just wondering if you got to visit your physician about your situation? I am curious because I have been researching whether I want to try this colonic or not. I really want to try, but when I read this, it concerned me. I am a relatively healthy person, and have always thought about trying this, but I wonder if a colonic can do harm to those who are healthier with less fecal matter in their intestines or is I am reading too far into this.
Hi!I've been diagnosed with gallstones more than 15 yrs.ago with symptoms of high fever and slight yellowing of eyes. Luckily I came across an acupuncturist who advised me to strengthen my liver first before I even undergo operation. By the time my liver improved, I was lucky enough again to get info about the apple juice flush. I went thru the enema, fast and flush, did it 3-4x every year. Green stones and fine mass come out but everytime I have my ultrasound, some have become smaller and lesser but still there!! Now I read from other doctors that the stones that come out are actually due to the olive oil and lemon that I take??? I feel better each time I do it and hardly have usual abdominal pains before I started flushing the first time. Now I'm having doubts. My body is 54 years old already and I really want to get rid of my stones only and keep the bladder intact. Please advise me on this matter. Thank you so much

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.

Hi Betty, We appreciate your feedback and have consulted with a number of health experts and supplement industry experts on this issue. There is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding about magnesium stearate which is an innocuous excipient used so that the capsules don’t stick in the production process. There are minuscule amounts in the product which have never been definitively proven to be toxic.
Supplementation with Garcinia cambogia (Malabar tamarind) suppresses your appetite and increases your metabolism. This is mainly due to the presence of a compound called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA). HCA has natural fat burning properties, which can help you shed the extra pounds. Garcinia cambogia not only helps to flush out all the toxins from your body but also prevents constipation and is good for your mental health as well (1), (2).

Sea salt: A common seasoning ingredient, sea salt is full of detoxifying properties. Mixing one tablespoon of sea salt in water and boiling it, then letting it cool, can be a great way to utilize the detoxifying properties of sea salt. However, too much salt water can cause diarrhea, so it is important to drink plenty of water and fresh juices throughout the day.
