Colon Cleanse: What You Need to Know

The benefits of getting a colon cleanse are fairly well known. After all, this is a technique which has been used for centuries in one form or another. However, the basic principles which were developed long ago are still in place. Except today modern machines are used to perform the cleanse with precision. Before you decide on whether to have a colon cleanse, it pays to know what it is, what it can do, and why it is important.

What is a Colon Cleanse?

Sometimes called a colonic, a cleanse involves inserting warm water into the colon using a small rectal tube. Any waste material that is present in the colon becomes softer and becomes easier to remove through normal muscle contractions. The result is that your colon is freed from the waste material that may have been inside for quite some time.


You will feel better after a colon cleanse which is just one of the many advantages it offers. For those who feel sluggish and less energetic, a colon cleanse may be the solution. Other advantages of the cleanse includes the following:

  • Cleanses the Blood
  • Restores pH Balance
  • Improves Immune System
  • Gets Rid of Toxins in the Colon

When you cleanse the colon, you get rid of the toxins that affect your immune system. This is one reason why you feel more energetic. With the pH balance restored, your body is now healthier and better able to take on illness.

Why You Need a Colon Cleanse?

A colon cleanse is not for all health situations, but there are certain signs that you should consider getting a colonic:

  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Indigestion
  • Irritable Bowel
  • Unusual Body Odor
  • Diarrhea

If you suffer from any of these symptoms which lasts longer than a change in diet, then you might want to have a colon cleanse performed. However, you should also speak with your doctor to ensure that a cleanse is the right solution.


Another advantage of a colonic is when it is used to clean the colon before a colonoscopy occurs. Instead of not eating for 24 hours or longer, you instead can have the waste material removed from your colon so the colonoscopy can be performed. This is a great option for those who might have difficulty going without food for over a day.

For those 50 and older, a colonoscopy should be performed on a scheduled basis, especially if you are vulnerable to colon cancer or have demonstrated some symptoms of the disease. Colon cancer is usually slow moving, so detecting it early can make a considerable difference in terms of treatment.

A colon cleanse is not painful. In fact, it’s often relaxing for those who experience it. For those who may have some impacted waste material in their colon, there might be some slight discomfort when it is dislodged. Otherwise, a colonic is generally without pain and once it is completed, many people feel better overall.
