Everything that I have posted is basically based on my own experience, I have no affiliation with any products and I find that most doctors do no recommend colon cleansing because they simply says it does not work without understanding the mechanics of it or simply they are not trained that way
Now, I am only talking about Colonix, not any of the others, as I do not have first hand experience with that nor do I think that a few days cleanse is going to cut it
To your questions:
1. When a colon is backed up as in IBS, you already have bad bacteria in your gut. In order to remove the bad bacteria you must get the colon moving to deplete this. Once that is moving you may take the probiotic, without the colon moving and taking the probiotic it causes more gas and more discomfort. Colonix has a probiotic Flora Protect on their program
2. The way non-organic laxatives stimulate bowl movement irritates intestinal muscles. Because of their use, the system made up of local tissues, muscles and nerves remain idle, which causes the degeneration of our intestines Laxative cause the emptying of the intestines without engaging the muscle tissue, which leads to weakening. Weak intestinal muscles, in turn, cause chronic constipation.
Colonix has a herbal organic laxative called kleritea that does not dry out the intestines
3. Colonix program uses psyllium husk as the fiber and the kleri tea to push it along. Kleri tea does not have to be used all the time however this is used to push the fiber through.
4. Colonix recommends that you drink water during this process, without water, bowels are not hydrated and can not function properly, this is something that must always be done whether or not you do a cleanse
I dont want to get lengthy here, but I did have an issue with my colon that did affect my liver and my kidneys and I became knowledgable on how to help my self.
During colon cleansing you eat normally you dont keep your colon empty, you must eat
I am deeply convinced that we should be our own advisor and doctor in many situations. We need to attain enough knowledge about the way our body functions to be capable of eliminating the causes of our illness and suffering
