I know it’s an icky topic, but I’m really curious…Has anyone here tried a colon cleanse? My trainer at the gym said she doesn’t suggest the pills, but does suggest an herbal tea. I’ve heard there’s tons of buildup in our colons and even with eating a lot of fiber, there’s no way to get it all out. Rumor is you can end up feeling much better and another benefit is losing a few pounds. Has anyone had success with this?

I haven’t done one, and I know some people are big on these, but I talked to my gastrointerologist about it and he says they’re a load of crap, hahaha. But seriously, he said our bodies naturally clean out the "gunk" in our colons effectively and that as long as we are eating fiber we are ok. He said he has no idea where people get all that weird stuff in them (yes i’ve seen the pictures of what looks like plastic) and thinks it’s a scam. I’ve done other detox programs (Isagenix) and organic foods and stuff that don’t involve my colon, though and they all have made me feel great. Rejuvinated if you will. Tomorrow i’m getting a body detox wrap. I can’t wait!
Personally, I’m just not keen on the idea of running to the restroom for days on end because my colon is acting all spastic. I imagine it’s like having the flu…and the whole world is coming out your behind.

HA!!! Ok, so funny thing is, I’m a hs teacher and my kiddos are now wondering why I’m laughing out loud…definitely not something I can explain, so they’ll just have to think I’m crazy! Yeah I’m not too keen on having to run to the restroom all the time (plus with these crazy kids, I really can’t!) But my trainer told me that the tea is like clockwork, that you drink it and like 2 hours later you gotta go!! But yes, she told me to make sure to do it on a night when you have NOTHING else to do…BTW she said the pills are a hoax too, she suggests something herbal…
