Colon Cleansing

I have done a colon cleanse at least twice a year. It always makes me feel better eg, energetic, clearer skin, flatter stomach etc. How safe are these though and how often should this be done?

Re: Colon Cleansing

According to a medical study I read colon cleansing does no good for the body and may in fact be harmful.

We have been eating dead food for so long we now think that all bacteria is bad.
Our food system kills all bacteria both good and bad as a result our digestive system is compromised. If you had a good bacterial system in your colon you wouldn't need to cleanse. Why not try live foods with probiotics and enzymes like Kombucha, Kefir, etc.?

Avoid fast food joints.

Re: Colon Cleansing

I agree with donsabi. I attended a presentation today by a Stanford doctor. He was talking about how antibiotics destroy colonies of good bacteria on our skin and in our mouths and intestinal tracts. These colonies take months to return to their original state, and this can cause harm to the body. It was an interesting talk. Anyway, I would think that colon cleansing has a similar effect. However, I don't have personal experience with it.
