A gut cleanse is essentially eating a clean diet of unprocessed, unrefined gut-friendly foods as well as some gut-friendly supplements. For more serious health complaints, commit to a four-to six-week cleanse, for general wellness opt for two weeks. If you currently eating a high-sugar, low-vegetable diet, you may experience fatigue, a change in bowel motions, mental fogginess and skin eruptions. These symptoms tend to subside after three to five days.
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.
I had pain in my right back when I lay down to sleep. I thought it was just below where the liver should be. I thought it might be my gallbladder. Next day I took dandelion root caps. One three times a day. After three weeks I passed many black, pea sized round hard stones in my stool.. I removed a few & opened them. They were white inside. I thought they were little gallstones. No more pain in the back & has never returned. I would recommend this for anyone with similar symptoms.
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.

Senna is widely accepted as a stool softener and a short-term treatment for constipation. Senna leaf is approved by the World Health Organization for use in occasional constipation. It is approved in the United States by the FDA and in European countries as an ingredient in over-the-counter and prescription laxative preparations. And it is approved by the German government for any condition in which alleviating constipation or softening stools is desirable. Senna may be recommended for people with hemorrhoids, anal fissures, or those undergoing surgery involving the abdomen, anus, or rectum. Senna may also be used to clear the bowel in order to improve the visibility of abdominal organs during an ultrasound procedure.
Fruits and berries provide water, fiber, and antioxidants. Apples, bananas, and strawberries are a great place to start, and you may already have them at home. Each of these can provide a significant portion of your daily fiber needs. Citrus fruits like oranges and lemons are also a great digestive aid and give you a vitamin C boost. Dried fruits like prunes and cranberries can also be beneficial for your colon and act as natural laxatives.[6]
We want to make it clear that a full body detox can be achieved solely through colon cleansing foods. Supplements are always optional. However, for workaholics and soccer moms, a supplement like Digestive Refresh provides the same benefits minus the preparation and hassle. All of Digestive Refresh’s ingredients are all-natural; you’re not ingesting anything that has no business being in your body.
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.

During a colon cleanse, large amounts of water — sometimes up to 16 gallons (about 60 liters) — and possibly other substances, such as herbs or coffee, are flushed through the colon. This is done using a tube that's inserted into the rectum. In some cases, smaller amounts of water are used and are left to sit in the colon for a short time before being removed.


Cayenne fruit, the potent, hot fruit of cayenne, has been used as medicine for centuries. Cayenne is helpful for various conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, including temporary constipation (by stimulating peristalsis and speeding up orocecal transit time19), stomach aches, cramping, and gas. Cayenne is also extremely beneficial for the circulatory system, helping to improve the elasticity of the walls of both the arterial and venous systems, maintaining normal blood platelet function, and working to help maintain normal blood pressure. And finally, cayenne is used in many herbal formulas as a "driver" -- to "push" the other herbs in the formula into the bloodstream more quickly.

We need both soluble and insoluble fibre for colon cleansing every day. Soluble fibre dissolves in water whereas insoluble does not. Insoluble fibre is especially good for improving elimination and preventing constipation. Soluble fibre increases beneficial bacteria, which produce natural antibiotics that eliminate potentially harmful bacteria such as Salmonella, Campylobacter and E. coli. Researchers believe adequate and consistent levels of healthy intestinal flora can also help prevent colon cancer. Soluble fibre is also important for binding cholesterol and aiding its passage through the body.

Additionally, Epsom salt is not required for the colon cleanse, and is only used for the 5-day liver cleanse protocol as seen here: https://www.globalhealingcenter.com/liver-cleanse-kit.html#instructions. Epsom Salt is used on Day 5 (flush day) to relax and allow the bile ducts of the liver to release toxic sludge from the liver and gallbladder. On the morning of Day 6 (the day after the cleanse), you will take 6 capsules of Oxy-Powder to ensure that your system is expediting the release of toxins.

To be sure, I've also read numerous emails from doctors who write into the Baseline of Health Foundation and say, "I've been doing colonoscopies for years, and I've never seen this mythical fecal matter." But think about this for a moment. What is every patient required to do the night before they get their colonoscopy? They are forced to drink a literal gallon of purgative to blow every last trace of fecal matter out of their colons. So doctors do not see large amounts of fecal matter, they see only the damage that fecal matter has left behind -- prolapsed colons, polyps, and diverticular disease for starters.
Although common colon cleansing procedures help you lose weight, they carry risks. Dr. Michael Picco, a gastroenterologist at the Mayo Clinic, says that colon cleansing can cause bowel perforations, infections and dehydration. The procedure may not be appropriate for people with kidney disease, heart disease and other chronic medical problems. Conventional medicine practitioners also note that your body naturally eliminates toxins, making colon cleansing unnecessary as a detoxification method. Discuss the risks of colon cleansing with a doctor to determine whether it is a safe choice for you.
All of these foods contain high amounts of fiber, calcium, and vitamin D, which are great at keeping your digestive system working properly and preventing constipation. But if you’re not used to a diet rich in fiber or calcium, introducing lots of these types of foods at once can lead to gastrointestinal distress in the form of diarrhea, bloating, or constipation. If you’re planning on a dietary colon cleanse, add more of these foods to your diet little by little over time instead of all at once.

I know several people who SWEAR by these treatments (some like the water ones, some like the juice/smoothie-only cleanses.) They participate more frequently, though, seeking a cleanse with the change of seasons. The only reason to really avoid it is if you have a suppressed immune system to begin with, which is not a problem for you! Congratulations for being brave enough to write about the experience. I didn’t find it it to be very “gross” at all, but then again, I may have a high threshold for bodily functions.
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!

There are several foods that are recommended time and time again by nutritionists for those who wish to follow a colon cleanse diet. The first component is usually quite heavy on raw fruits and vegetables. A raw juice diet is thought by many to be one of the best ways to take in as many nutrients as possible. This gives you all the nutrition of the vegetables and fruits, but without pulp and fibers that take time to digest. This gives the colon time to process everything that is being put into it. This can be a good colon cleanse diet as well for anyone who wants to fast, but needs to have some nutrition still.
What if you you don't have a Gallbladder any more, can you use this colon cleanse. I have had severe Candida for over 15 years now and I am having a difficult time getting it under total control even though I have changed my diet drastically and I use various herbal medicine to help. One of my biggest problem is constipation and I also have Chiari Malformation which I am told by my neurologist not to push because I can get massive headaches which I have proven and I can also push my brain out.

The colon performs many essential functions; it doesn’t only aid in the elimination of stool but also extracts salt and water from waste before excreting it, maintains pH and fights against harmful bacteria. The malfunctioning of the colon can cause serious health implications such as skin allergies, gallbladder stones, heart diseases, etc. Many have found that performing a colon cleanse is an easy preventative to avoid colon problems in the future.

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.

Your intestinal tract is the source of all nutrient access to your body. If it isn't working properly, you have two major problems. First, you have a hard time digesting food--breaking it down sufficiently so that your body can use it. And then, even if you can digest it properly, if the intestinal wall is covered with hardened mucous and/or colonies of hostile bacteria, you'll end up absorbing only a fraction of the nutritional value of the food you eat.
