has anyone used DrNatura colon cleanse?

I don't want to hear what doctors say, they think anything out of the mainstream is bunk. But I am curious if anyone has used this exact cleanse, and what they thought of it. I understand that there is debate about cleaning the colon, but it sounds like the cleanse part helps your whole body. Thoughts?

re dr natura

i paid the money for it, either my colon wasnt as dirty as the folks on the informercial or it doesnt work. i would advise if you eat properly/dont have bloating then dont waste your money.

The components in all natural vitamin cleanse just as well for 1/2 the price. I was told that it is the probiotics and plant enzymes in the formula that promote the cleansing effect featured on the web. The milk thistle in the formula also promotes kidney and liver rejuvenation and cleanse.

"I don't want to hear what doctors say, they think anything out of the mainstream is bunk."

Yeah, you wouldn't want to be caught listening to someone who actually knows what they're talking about. I mean, that would be stupid. After all, not listening to science is what made America great.

Hey 1:54 Don't take it so literally, the OP only wanted to have some information on it, and asked for some advice on the procedure, no need to go postal on her / him.
As for "not listening to science" - can't say the States is any better off with the invention of the nuclear weapon.

2:04- you think the internet just grew out of the ground on it's own? :)

But yeah, yer right. People avoiding doctors and their advice is a pet peeve of mine- without doctors, I'd be dead several times over. When I hear someone talking about western medicine and conspiracies to keep alternative cures away from the people, it just really gets me frustrated. But, that's my issue, not the OPs.

So, sorry about the harshness.

(but your doctor really is the one you should ask before you do this)

I hated it.

I used a colon cleaner around 12 years ago. It made me sick as a dog. I don't remember the name of it, but it left my side sore for days.

I've done a bit of research on colon cleanses in the past (I'm for sure not an expert, nor would I claim to be one) and from what I read, I was personally a bit skeptical about them. I'm not saying that they do or do not work, just that I was not convinced myself.

I read a funny story online about somebody's personal experience with Dr. Natura on a comedy website. PLEASE DO NOT CLICK THE LINK IF YOU ARE EASILY OFFENDED. It is a story about somebody's experience with colon cleansing and it's on a comedy website. There's some toilet humor as can be expected.

I've had 3 friends use Dr. Natura--all of them were pleased with their results. But, be sure to eat and drink exactly what is stated with the program otherwise you will "feel sick". Personally I prefer the real thing. I've seen a colon hydrotherapist and as "weird" as it sounds, it really works and besides you're in and out in under an hour, no week long BM's. hope this helps.

doctors thoughts on colon cleansing

I actually do want to know what doctors think about this. I have heard repeatedly that this whole thing is total bs.

My doctor/internist (who performed my colonoscopy last week!) thinks this is ridiculous. That said, if you want to clean your colon, here's how you do it before getting scoped - a true colon cleans as prescribed by my doctore. 1) buy 2 1.5 oz. bottles of Fleet's phospho soda at your drugstore/pharmacy (about $4.50 ea.). The next day, a.m.: eat little to no fiber foods (no nuts, cereals, fresh fruit or vegetables, etc.) until 2pm. Usually this means you're eating dairy and meat to keep full. After 2pm no solid food - just clear liquids (water, chicken broth, etc.). NO BOOZE this day. At 6pm, drink the first bottle of Fleet's (entirely - mix it with a bit of pop to get it down... probably a soda you don't like as this stuff is gross tasting and it may put you off the soda you're drinking it with forever; 7Up works for me). Hang out near a bathroom in the next 30 minutes - duration of about 3 hours. No food but plenty of (clear) fluids are recommendend so you don't get dehydrated. Go to bed. Next a.m. drink the 2nd bottle of Fleets and do your second bathroom tour. After this, your colon will be clear, take my word for it (saw proof during the procedure as there was a camera on the instrument!). When you eat again, start light so your body doesn't freak out. 30 minutes after the light eating you can go back to normal intake of foods. Good luck. It ain't fun. And did I mention, my doctor thinks it's bull (unless you're going into a colonoscopy procedure)?
