  • Think your colon needs cleansing?

  • Chances are, it doesn't.

  • And you're probably doing more harm than good.

  • Hey guys, Tara here for Dnews - and there's a small but persistent population of people

  • out there who believe that regular colon cleansings are good for your body.

  • Whether it's laxatives, enemas, or an actual colon irrigation - performed by a medical

  • practitioner.

  • The idea, they say, is thatit cleans out all of the toxins that build up on the walls

  • of your colon over time” - preventing symptoms like fatigue, bloating, and even depression

  • or cancer.

  • It's true, there are instances where this kind of procedure is warranted - for example,

  • someone who's about to undergo a colonoscopy.

  • But the vast majority of the people who did it, don't actually need it - and over time,

  • they could be doing more harm than good.

  • The truth is, your body already has mechanisms built in, specifically designed to eliminate

  • harmful substances.

  • Your liver and kidneys are two of those mechanisms.

  • Plus, there just isn't enough research yet on most colon cleanses, to really recommend

  • them to anyone who doesn't have a specific medical need.

  • Not to mention the fact that they have been known to cause some very serious side effects.

  • Certain herbal cleanses, for example, have been linked to liver toxicity and aplastic

  • anemia, which is a rare disorder where your body stops producing enough red blood cells.

  • Other reports have specifically linked colonics to things like abdominal pain, diarrhea, and

  • in more serious cases - kidney problems, heart failure, and life-threatening infections.

  • Any scenario where you're inducing diarrhea - also carries the risk of disrupting your

  • body's electrolyte balance, leading to a number of health problems.

  • And that's especially true for people with kidney disease or heart problems - who ALREADY

  • have trouble maintaining proper fluid balance.

  • The same goes for pregnant and breastfeeding women, people with GI problems - like Crohn's

  • disease or ulcerative colitis - and people with connective tissue disorders or severe

  • hemorrhoids, who run an increased risk of bowel perforation.

  • For the general population, though, who has no known health issues - it's just not a

  • good idea to disrupt the natural balance of bacteria in your gut.

  • It's like taking antibiotics for a common cold - yeah, you might get rid of bad bacteria,

  • but you're also getting rid of good bacteria - which puts you at a higher risk for future

  • infections.

  • Some people also like to claim that colon irrigation is a good method for weight loss

  • - which isn't exactly true.

  • A 2004 study on colonics, found the average weight loss of patients to be around 2.6 lbs,

  • or 1.2 kg.

  • Not really a huge difference.

  • Not to mention that all you're disposing of, is extra water and stool.

  • You're not permanently getting rid of any fat, so all of that weight will come back

  • within a couple week's time.

  • Most doctors say that if you're really interested in cleaning out your colon, the best thing

  • you can do is adjust your diet and make sure to get plenty of exercise.

  • Processed foods, meat, and sugar will only induce build-up, but foods that are rich in

  • fiber - like fruits and vegetables - will pretty much do all of the work for you.

  • I know there's a big debate about this online, so which side are you on?

  • Are you a proponent of regular colon cleansing?

  • And if so, what are you experiences with it?

  • Feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments down below.

  • And as always, thank you guys for watching!
