It is a waste of money and doesn’t work. No pill, potion or supplement will help you.

All you need to lose weight is a good healthy diet and exercise – it takes time 🙂

The truth about colon cleanse/detox plans?

Ok.. I’ve tried to do a little research on this, and the internet is filled with a myriad of products, plans, etc. claiming to cleanse the colon and detox your system. I am not sure what to think. Are supplements really necessary? If so, are there products out there that are safe, with no “fillers”, etc.? Obviously I realize a healthy diet and exercise are a must. I am just looking for a plan to detox my system and clean out the colon… There are so many things out there.. and I’ve also heard scary stories about “natural” products…does anyone have personal experience and/or reliable advice about this? Thanks so much
btw, I already eat plenty of fiber, fresh fruit/veg, and exercise daily.
I want to thank everyone for taking the time to answer. If the general consensus is that a “program” is not necessary, then is there something I can do with diet/fasting for 1-2 days to achieve the same effect? As mentioned, my diet is healthy (includes lots of fiber) and I exercise daily- but too often I still feel “backed up” (sorry, I know it’s not a pretty topic!)

Colon cleansing can be helpful. Those docs who aren’t scared by the alternative movement’s use of colon cleanses will tell you that YES stuff does build up there. All things not being perfect, the colon also is assaulted and can’t do its job in the perfect manner it was created to do it.

The best thing to do is plan a spring or fall yearly cleanse. It is best to use gentle products like what Garden of Life offers, or other equivalents. Avoid psyllium in your cleanse if possible as it is very harsh. I’ve used the Ultimate Cleanse, and like it, but it was a rather long experience. And, the psyllium content ended up making me get IBS mimic symptoms, so I had to stop.

Colon cleansing can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be uncomfortable to your wallet. Find an alternative health message board, and ask for people’s recommendations of what they liked.

The heart is supposed to work well to pump the blood around your body, while they lungs infuse oxygen and take away CO2, but we all know they need help occasionally too. 🙂

Remember to always drink plenty of water and get plenty of exercise.

Detox/Colon Cleanse/Candida Question?

I’m exercising doing Insanity workouts, & eating healthy, more fruits & vegetables as well as taking greens powder and a good natural multivitamin daily, I’m also taking psyllium husks, & aloe vera, to clean my colon. (for about a week) How long will it take to detox, or be toxin free, I’m 25 and have had Candida for a few years. I’m also starting a candida diet (again) & natural anti candida remedies: coconut oil, garlic, oregon oil, etc.
(I sweat a lot when I workout & drink plenty of water)

You may be trying too hard with the wrong protocol. To learn about the Candida diet and proper supplements, go to this website: http://fibromyalgia-irritable-bowel-candida-support.com/about-candida.aspx

We typically find that with the anti-fungal diet and proper supplements, people are Candida free in 2-3 weeks.

Good luck!
