    Has anyone here tried a colon cleanse, and did it help.

    I was reading on another website and they swore (not that I fully believe it) that they had fibro and cfs, and when they did the colon and parasite cleanse, they were healed.

    I had this done once 20 years ago. It didn't make me feel better but it did ease my mind that I didn't have gross things in my intestines.

    There are natural ways and things to take to do the same thing. When I had a colonoscopy believe me I was cleaned out!

    Take care hopefully others will comment,

    As to that persons claim, maybe it did do something for them if that's where there problems stemmed from.

    I don't see how cleansing your colon could take all this pain and tiredness away. My husband does want me to try it because of my ibs though. I will let anybody interested know if it makes me feel better even for a day lol

    Yes I have done a cleanse !

    I had UC for 30 yrs. and when I did the colon cleanse,between that and God,I no longer have UC. I had UC so bad that I almost bleed to death several times. Nothing helped.

    During the cleanse I passed a lot of yucky stuff and it was just like someone threw a light switch. I was better instantly.

    I haven't taken any drugs for UC since. I was on Azulfadine,prednisone,asacol, and much much more.

    I am sooo glad that I did the cleanse! I am 67 now and still have Fibro but I'm 100% better than I was 35 yrs. ago.I was young when I 1st developed UC and was in hospital many many time. I was thinking of having my colon removed,to stop all the pain and agony.

    I'm glad that I didn't have it removed.
    PS type in "Death begins in the Colon" and read about the cleanse. Also the product that I use for the cleanse was
    "Colonix",I got it on line.

    I'm in the middle of doing a mild one now (since I am in week 4 of taking an antiviral and don't want to do anything stressful).

    I've ordered some of the product Colonix, which includes a psyllium/herb bulk product, anti-parasite capsules, and tea that includes senna and other herbs.

    I have been taking that every 2-4 days, whenever it "feels right." The other days, I have been taking some Metamucil capsules along with a small amount of senna (plus some parasite medicine).

    I have been constipated since I was about nine years old. At some points this was not "acute" constipation, but even when it wasn't, I always sort of felt like there was something left. I never understood that.

    Recently I was talking to my doctor about what I could do with regard to yeast herxing, and he suggested a colonic (colon hydrotherapy) to wash out the dead stuff. I had one done and it worked like a charm, although it did make me quite weak. (This was before I started the AV,)

    The colonic specialist said that she thought (after pressing on my stomach) that my intestines were very clogged and that I would benefit from a colon cleanse.

    Thus far, I'm enthusiastic about it. I've been having at least 1-2 good bowel movements per day, which is extremely unusual for me but important for general health, I think. i also no longer having that feeling of there being something left.

    I haven't had anything dramatic happen like the pictures on those sites, but I have had some darker material.

    At one point early on, I had what I felt was a toxic reaction to something that had been buried inside. It lasted for about two days. This was before I started the antiviral, and is why I'm trying to be gentle now.

    In general, I think this will be a good thing for me. (I plan to continue for several months.) I don't know if it would be right for someone who didn't have this particular longstanding problem, though.
