I did a full-blown colon cleanse with psyllium and bentonite a year ago and got all kinds of black putrid gunk and parasites out of me. Despite the good results, this was incredibly foolish on my part because even then I was having problems with strictures and the colon cleanse could have easily resulted in a blockage. Also it did not seem to halt the progress of my disease: I continued sliding down hill after that at a pretty rapid rate.
