    Hi All,
    I have purchased high quality herbal colon cleanser capsules. My question: has anyone ever gotten SICKER from the toxins being released??
    My bowel seems to be working fine, but when I read about all the poisonous crud that may be lurking there, making me sick, I want to do something about it. When I looked up this topic, an old post says that our colons are clean, but i just saw a video of some disgusting colons which had POUNDS of waste accumulated (?). I know, disgusting, but if it works, who cares!!
    Thanks, I am waiting to hear from you before I try it!

    hello! I've tried the colon cleanse capsules, and I didn't have any bad side effects. Since it's the capsules, and you take it over a period of usually around 30 days, the toxins are released a little slower, so I don't think the effects are so bad. I did have a colon cleanse done, with water and tubes and all that good stuff. It was fantastic. I was a little sleepy for a day or so, but just knowing that all that stuff was out of me in one shot, all in 1 hour, was awesome. I lost 5 pounds! If you prefer not to wait for the capsules to start working, i say pay the $70 and go for the complete colon cleanse. Good luck, whichever you decide!

    Thanks for the response, I think I will go for the slow capsule thing cuz I already purchased them, but it was very helpful to get your feedback. So glad you got the 'gunk' out!
