In addition to all of the problems we've already discussed, a sluggish bowel also has a major health impact on another body system: your lymph. Think for a moment, if you will, of your colon as your body's drain pipe. If the drain is clogged, not only will waste not be eliminated, but when you flush the toilet, the drain backs up and spills over befouling the entire bathroom. And that's exactly the point which leads us to a discussion of waste removal from the body and the lymph system.
The following Q&A from our FAQ section on doing a Liver/Gallbladder cleanse addresses this issue. 13. I did not see stones in the toilet, why is that? We have heard from many people that they have seen "horrible" things floating in the toilet. But many notice nothing. That's not unusual. In many cases the stones are too small to notice -- or too few. Also, using the psyllium, which makes the elimination of waste much easier, tends to encapsulate and makes things harder to see. Another thing to keep in mind is that people often confuse the little "soap" beads that the body can make out of the olive oil as stones. On the other hand, the fact the body often produces "soap stones" doesn't mean that it isn't also flushing real gallstones. In the end, though, it's not what you see, it's how you feel. Wait for a few days after the cleanse and then evaluate. Do you feel lighter and cleaner? Is your breathing a little easier, less mucousy? Does food taste better? Etc. These are the tangible results you're after. Or if nothing else, were you able to break some bad eating habits or lose some of that extra weight you picked up over the holidays? That said, are you doing the stone softening program that Jon Barron recommends before doing your flush? This helps make the program more effective. Also, you refer to an apple juice flush. This makes me wonder if you are following a different version of the flush or protocol than we recommend on this site. If so, then you probably need to check with the people who recommend that protocol to figure out how to maximize its effectiveness.
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.)
I’ve had colon hydrotherapy on and off for a few years now. The place I go to in Las Vegas normally puts healthy bacteria in the final part of the session. Foot and hand massage are also performed if wanted. They also massage the stomach to help loosen areas/help water flow. At the end as you are leaving, they provide a cup of emergen C mix and cup of homemade vegetarian soup to complete your session.
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.
A colon cleanse makes your digestive system more effective, as when it is cleansed it begins to expel undigested waste from your system, clearing up the space so that nutrients can be more easily absorbed in the future. If waste stays in your body for too long, it can end up causing illness from breeding bacteria and a clean colon detox will allow undigested waste to easily pass through your system.
Honestly, I'm kind of disappointed with this. I feel like it really didn't do anything at all and I was actually looking forward to trying this detox cleanse because of the results it promised. However, nothing changed and I still feel the same as I did before I even tried it. Maybe this is just one of those fake "sugar pills" and I wasted my money. The bottle says "flatten stomach or your money back" but the product did not flatten my stomach even in the slightest :(
Following my colon cleanse diet has the potential to boost your body’s internal detoxification processes. However, in some cases, something more is needed. I developed Oxy-Powder® as a solution to the toxins and harmful organisms we are all exposed to. Oxy-Powder is a safe and effective colon cleanse product that uses the power of oxygen to gently cleanse and detoxify your entire digestive tract and relieve bloating, gas, and occasional constipation.
In a colon regenerator, I recommend you look for a formula that contains all organic herbs such as: Psyllium seeds and husks, Apple pectin, Montmorillonite clay, Activated willow charcoal, Pau d'arco, Slippery elm inner bark, Marshmallow root, and Fennel seed. Each offers a unique benefit to the colon detox program as well as an overall effectiveness not available in a colonic. These are the ingredients that I use in my own colon regeneration formula. Let's look at them in a little more detail.

Chlorophyll does a lot of wonders for the human body. It’s useful as a digestive tract cleanse and may prevent colorectal cancer, according to a study. A chlorophyll enema, in fact, has become a health trend for this very reason. However, you don’t need to shove anything down your rectum to derive the same benefits that you can get from consuming green veggies.
The gut is the basis of our health – it’s the first line of defense against pathogens, it’s where we digest and absorb nutrients and where we house our gut microbes, also known as gut bacteria. Poor gut health is now thought to be strongly linked to a compromised immune system, malnutrition and poor mood regulation, and plays a role in arthritis and obesity, according to a recent review of scientific literature published in the journal BMC Medicine.

If you don’t have the time to follow the steps of colon cleansers that we have laid out for you, there are other options available on the market today. Colon cleansers come in a variety of different forms, including laxatives, high colonics, enemas, and pills. The way that they work is by helping your body to eliminate the harmful toxins that may have begun to build within your digestive tract. The idea behind regularly cleansing your colon is that it will assist your body in getting rid of all the unnecessary accumulated waste that has begun to build up over time. When slow foods stay within your digestive tract for a certain amount of time, your colon will begin to secrete mucous that literally keeps the toxins trapped within your system, along with clumps of undigested matter that can physically weigh you down.
Modern research has found that Terminalia has a strong effect against the herpes simplex virus HSV,23 and exhibits strong cardio tonic properties. It also has antioxidant components, which indicates it can increase the life of tissues. Yet another study shows the anti-tumor activity of Terminalia and another study shows that it has considerable effect in inhibiting the HIV virus which ultimately results in AIDS.24 And it can help control diabetes.25
Slippery elm bark (Ulmus rubra) works with the body to draw out impurities and toxins, assisting with the healing of all body parts. It is beneficial for all inflammatory bowel conditions.39 And slippery elm's coating action soothes the irritated tissues of the intestines, colon, and urinary tract, as well as stomach ulcers. The primary chemical constituents of slippery elm are mucilage (galactose), starch, tannins, calcium, vanadium, and zinc.
A good herbal-based, intestinal corrective provides both cleansing and healing to the entire gastro-intestinal system. It stimulates peristalsis (the muscular movement of the colon). It halts putrefaction and disinfects, soothes, and heals the mucous membrane lining of your entire digestive tract. Entirely herbal, with no harsh, habit-forming chemicals, an effective activating formula will also help improve digestion, relieve gas and cramps, increase the flow of bile (which in turn cleans the gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver), destroy Candida albicans overgrowth and promote healthy intestinal flora, destroy and expel intestinal parasites, and increase gastrointestinal circulation. The herbs used in this type of formula are also antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal.
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 good source of soluble fiber to compensate for all of the fibreless processed foods, meat, and dairy that we eat is recommended. The three best sources of fiber are psyllium seed husks, freshly ground organic flaxseed meal (It should be freshly ground, or at the very least stabilized, so that it does not go rancid), and white chia seeds. One tablespoon of psyllium each day or 1.5 tablespoons of ground flax in the morning and evening with juice or 1-2 tablespoons of white chia seeds sprinkled on your food will keep you regular. Flax and chia also provide you with healthy omega-3 essential oils. And with flax, the sulfur-rich proteins and lignans present in the seeds work hand in hand with the omega-3 oils to reverse mutated cells and cancer in the body. But again, psyllium has the advantage of not fermenting in the colon.
It sounds harmless enough. You lie comfortably on a table as warm, filtered water gets pumped into your colon through a disposable rectal tube. For about 45 minutes, the water works to soften up any waste material and expel it from the body. Many believe that a clean colon can lead to a healthier life and reduce the chances of many diseases. Stars are doing it to slim down right before a big premiere. But does it really work? The jury is split.
The high chlorophyll content of green foods (such as alfalfa, wheatgrass, barley grass, spirulina, blue-green algae) makes them ideal for colon cleansing. In addition to cleansing, chlorophyll soothes and heals damaged tissue in the digestive tract. It helps the body to obtain more oxygen and draws out toxins. For this reason, chlorophyll is called “the internal deodorant.”
