Taking Charge of Your Health

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 that “it 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!

  1. Why Fiber rich food makes Colon movement healthy? Because, when Fiber meets with bacteria in intestine, they produce Molecular Hydrogen. This molecular Hydrogen makes Good bacteria more healthier.Healthy bacteria keeps good intestine movement.

  2. You can not be doing anthing wrong when they poison all the foods that give you those side effects automatically . Cleaning always help, always…😉

  3. Antibiotics for common cold? Antibiotics are used to treat bacteria (as you eluded), but the cold is caused by a virus. #stopbacterialresistance

  4. 90% of auto Immune disease come from the bowels and colon build up of crap, if you eat meat and bread you deffinitely have mucoid plaque mucous build up in your colon, not to mention paracites! the medical world has turned a complete blind eye to this, as it is drilled into there head in medical school to push pharmaceuticals to the public they even make a nice commision. If you have any type condition or disease diagnosed from a doctor, get to the naturopath there is hope and you can cure yourself, check out Tyler Tolman's video colon cleanse detox- he is an Inspiration, and i reccomend this from experience of my own struggles with health issues PCOS, depression, anxiety, Cronic constipation and digestive issues, i am now symptom free and healthy again thanks to a specialist in this area, the colon is actually the most important organ of the body, dont believe me do your research, your kidneys an liver will fill up full of toxins if you cannot get the mucoid plaque out of your colon. Our bodies are not designed to have all this artificial chemical crap!

  5. I have a glass of hot water before I eat anything first thing in the morning and I take peppermint tea after lunch and dinner. I am very regular so wouldn't think I would need a colon cleanse

  6. I can't believe this woman is saying this…wow..people please please dont believe everything u hear….YOU NEED TO CLEAN YOUR GUT…wow

  7. I agree that doing a colon cleanse every week or even using a enema regularly is very bad for you. That just means your digestive system does not do its job. The proper way is to do the detox and get the digestive system to function properly

  8. For a healthy person that never gets constipated then yes a colon cleanse is use less. I also agree that a person that is constipated should not relay on a colon cleanse long term but to get there digestive system back to where it works like it should. But doctors will never heal a person only manage symptoms . There are plenty of holistic doctors that have the knowledge to get the body working like it should so you won't relay on a product to have a bowel movement

  9. Any stretch of eating too many processed foods can lead to plaque like buildup on the colon that may be difficult for fruits and vegetables alone to scrape off. But i suppose this lady is probably more right than wrong.

  10. So glad you made this. Can't believe those misinformed folks do not seem to understand that they are just taking in a gelatine that get mixed with residu and then comes out as so called plague/mucus. Besides who says that your colon must be clean? Every machinery needs grease, and your colon need fauna and flora to function.

  11. From what I know emptying (Which is all an herbal cleanse does) your colon causes improper digestion and over the years your upper body can get bony, shrink and lose muscle mass. It seems this is something that is covered up. Your colon is full of what you eat daily. cleansing it is like eating a good amount of broccoli preferably raw and filling it with good things. It releases and fills all the time. Didnt anyone suffer by getting bony up top from a colon cleanse?

  12. We did not evolve to have hoses shoved in our bums, otherwise, we might have evolved to have an inlet anus and an outlet anus. Since it was evolved as a one-way path, any efforts to fix or enhance flow/conditions in digestion should begin at the mouth. Also important is to determine whether digestive needs subtractive or additive/both measures-adding things to diet or activity or taking things away.

  13. So essentially not enough research has been done by the layperson, resulting in a lack of information on safe daily practices allowing for misuse (by the idiot layperson). No actual proof provided as to why this could potentially hurt someone. Like any other thing on this planet, you need to do research on how to properly utilize something before it retains benefits. And here you are claiming we shouldn't explore other options because "its disrupting natural occurrences" This was a useless video.

  14. The body isn't equipped to rid itself of Monsanto and other unnatural things we consume, which is why colon cleansing is needed.

  15. "For the general population who has no known health issues"

    Lmao have you seen the average American adult over weight or clinically obsess. This leads to everything from adult type 2 diabetes, to heart disease. The average American is chronically sick and on multiple mess by the age of 40. No known health issues…

    I have used oxy powder and so have tons of my friends all got the same result no more bloating flat stomach. The most important thing is you regular no more multiple trips to the bathroom and constipation.
    But sure all these results who needs them when you have this lady telling you everyone in the United States is basically healthy.
    I'm sure 99% of the public works out as well.

  16. Yea if it's unnatural, it's probobly not good for you. I gave myself an enima just a cupple times a few years ago, but that was because my poo was too dry. Aka constipated. I eat protein powder and protien bars and drink tons of water and never have poo problems! Yay! I wish the government would make it easier and better for people to choose protien powder over pancakes and crap you pour gallons and gallons of liquid sugar upon!!!!!!!!! The banks fucked us and the us is tied to banks on a leash so food prices are sky high and savings account interest is litterally more worthless than dirt!!!!!!!

  17. This is bullshit. Do we need to cleanse every week? No. Do we need to do this from time to time? Yes. With all the many wonders of Ancient Kemet(egypt)science,math, medicine, how could they be wrong about a simple thing like "death begins in the colon" I mean why would they say and live by that idiom? If my Ancestors were smart enough to align gargantuan stone structures with specific constellations with near perfect precision then I'm sure just about everything else they swore by had factual data behind it.

  18. Do Not have a colonic prior to a colonoscopy if you are not 100% sure of your condition. This would be extremely dangerous. Colonic irrigation is indicated before ROUTINE colonoscopies only. Former Colon Hydrotherapist.

  19. I want to do a cleanse, but via the mouth route, not the butt route. Unfortunately, all the information I seem to find is on various things to stick up your butt.

    My plan is to fast, so that my colon empties, but then once it does, what can I eat/drink to get rid of/check for any residue that remains on the sides of my intestines? I'm thinking I'd like to "soak" it with water, but whenever I drink a lot of extra water, it goes through the bladder and out the urethra, and I don't think any of it really gets into the colon. Not sure what options there are (besides laxatives, which I don't think are a good idea). Any ideas?


  21. Very educational, I am one who haves stubborn bowel movements due to lack of veggies, but I plan to increase my veggie in take and beef up my workouts. .
    Thanks again.


  23. With all kind of harmful substances mixed in your foods nowadays, i believe cleaning your colon is a way of prevention. even veges are with pesticides now.
    You'd be surprise of how different your body will feel once you've done detoxifying / colon cleansing. Key is to always do it moderately. Dont overdo it.

  24. Excuse me? Their no research on Enemas and health? So all those people who were studied, and cured all kinds of diseases with enemas are a figment of the scientific imagination? Are you fucking kidding me? This is some of the worst dis info I have ever seen in my life.

  25. I think colon cleansing IS needed by far at least once to twice a year especially for fast food eaters, meat lovers, alcoholics, sugar lovers, basic non dieters whom practically don't add any fiber rich ingrideients to their daily meal plans and little to no water. Ppl who are not interested are probably not gaining any health wisdom to themselves and are hurting their health more since most colon cancer starts by a toxic GI tract. Your video only added in the negative effects of these procedures which in other words biased B.S thank you

  26. Is this woman stupid? She is acting like we are herbivores. The food we eat is processed and toxic to our immune systems. If your ass don't clean your colon regularly you are bound to get bad ailments. That's like saying not washing your face is fine because we need the extra oils and bacteria. No stupid. Just No.

    The best way to clean your colon is the natural way. Either buy a bidet or get a squirt bottle. Preferably with cold water try to blast your colon with water to the point it creates a balloon effect. Where you fill your colon is filled with water. Then use the pressure of that water to squeeze out the turds that is trapped inside your colon. Just keep that process going till there is no more turds coming out of you and all the water also is released from your body. You'll know you're done when you wipe and its only clear substance that comes out.

    I literally even use a similar process to clean out my ears but with warm water instead. By using a squirt bottle with my head tilted so that the water blasts in my ear but trickles out as I remove the bottle.

    This woman logic about not cleaning your colon is like saying don't drink water to flush your food down through your body or don't brush your teeth to prevent tooth decay. She has no damn idea what she's talking about. Being the moment I started flushing out my colon I have yet to have a single stomach pain in years or gas of any kind. You not only feel healthier but you more energetic then sluggish due to discomfort. You literally can throw away your stomach products being the reason you have stomach issues is because of built up gas by the turds that reside in your body that clogs your colon that prevents gas from escaping.

  27. Almost no one mentions connective tissue disorders. I have EDS, but my colon motility is gone…and a plain enema doesn’t work. I actually had to have a transanal irrigation which was not pleasant.

  28. Your body does have mechanisms in place but when you eat processed food those mechanisms stop working properly. That's why diverticulitis and colon cancer rates have sky rocketed. Old fashioned enemas with plain spring water actually helps with a variety of health issues–without the use of poisonous prescription meds sold to you by you doctor.

  29. Actually that's not true and that's just in your first 31 seconds but then ignorance is not Bliss even though the person spilling it thinks it is I could tell you right now your kidneys are backed up particularly or left one how do I know that's for you to find out but if I was you I wouldn't be spreading bull you're entitled to your opinion but that's all it is and if you go back to the Dead Sea Scrolls what you're well over 2000 years old the angel of water specifically in forms the human animal that in order to be cleanly one must clean their colon instructs them how to make an enema and how to perform the enema and if you haven't ever heard the saying cleanliness is Next to Godliness it has a lot more to do with what stuck in your colon and that would be dead putrefying flesh mucus and rotting blood because that's what people put in their mouth and they're not hydrated enough and so if you're not going to drink enough of pure water and you don't even know what that means because most people don't then your kidneys are going to back up right after your liver gets backed up and that's where you're at your little too young for that but just in case you didn't know if a person is actually suffering and cannot eat because there's an invalent they can't hold anything down the only way to actually get nutrition to save their life is through their colon but please do continue to spread bullshit lies on YouTube because most people will believe you because you made it look like an official newscast and by the way anybody who knows anything these days knows that they shouldn't be listening to ignorant people no matter how intelligent they make themselves app+ear
    Just because there isn't any proof that God exists doesn't mean that God doesn't exist so you got it backwards you think you need proof before it's safe which means you're living in a mentality of lack or fear and therefore you refuse to do anything without a guarantee or insurance policy and by the way those are the type of people who end up in an early grave both of your kidneys are backed up your left one being the worse at least in this video and like I said you're pretty young but not pretty smart
    Specifically because you can hydrate through the colon just as you can up take nutrients but if it's covered in plaque if it is congested or compacted because your elimination organs including your kidney and your liver aren't functioning properly and they're calcified which means they're clogged like yours are then guess what happens you're going to end up reabsorbing all the toxins that are still hanging out in your colon because your body can't eliminate them and I'm going to tell you straight up right now I have work for the last 8 months trying to uncomplicate mine and I don't even eat dead animals as a matter of fact John Wayne died with 40 pounds of feces trapped in his colon how do you explain that one
    You haven't the first clue about electrolyte problems or how the body works I hope people aren't listening to you but judging by your thumbs up people are and I hope that they're educating themselves because the only thing you're doing is perpetuating wise so the pharmaceutical company can continue to maximize their already trillion-dollar Fortune
    Most people don't even have any good bacteria because the only thing they do is feed the bad bacteria because our society consumes a lot of processed food and if you look in those ingredients everything contain sugar believe me these guys have studied the human animal and how ignorant it is and continue to profit off of that ignorance and here you are telling people not to do something that would be beneficial to them having a hydro colon therapy does not destroy your gut Flora any perforations you have is from eating the standard American diet and pesticide Laden mass-produced commercial agricultural Foods most of them are frankenfoods that have been spliced adding animal DNA pesticides that are designed to cause perforations in the stomach Etc I mean I go on do I have to do your homework for you no the answer is no you're going to have to get smarter because you're already at risk and haven't the first clue other than this message so I would take it very seriously

  30. who cares that we have natural built in mechanisms that should take care of colon problems, we get so much shit inside of us today that we actually have to take special measures to detoxify our bodies and one of the most important things for that is a colon cleanse, try it with natural ways and you will be shocked with the results.
    too bad some people actually listen to this bulls*it and neglect their health.

  31. Bullshit. Detoxing is a must. You simply put back minerals and food probiotics after the cleanse.

  32. Biased bullshit. Go perform a colonoscopy on someone with cancer and see how much shit is in there. Just as much shit as this channel.

    There's never "enough research" on alternative medicine/therapy because it threatens the current medical system. Imagine if you could cure cancer with a plant that you can't patent… GOD FORBID!

    Your intestines are responsible for absorbing vitamins, minerals, water etc. Cleaning the colon makes it easier for your intestines to absorb more nutrients and prevents it from absorbing toxins, which tends to happen when you're (for example) chronically constipated.

  33. I had my first one today and no matter how anyone feels or thinks I feel pretty good and I'll do it again. I needed help and it helped. 🤷🏽‍♀️

  34. I think I know 7 different people who had suffered from depression or fatigue, who is all telling that it was helpful to clean their colon. But if people are do not eat any toxin it may be not needed. But if one has eaten processed food or junk, then I think it good to clean it out. The argument that it is not done enough research is not verifiable to cleansing. If people does not get positive result out of it, it will not be more popular

  35. agree..with you body has its own mechanism to take care of body..but we also take care what we eat and least 30 mins of workout in a day..

  36. Christ lady, you have absolutely no idea. Don’t talk about topics you don’t know true information about.

  37. Good to hear an opinion from the other side of the spectrum. I feel if you exercise on a regular basis eat clean and drink enough water you are good now if one is inactive and eats garbage all the time then yes an occasional cleanse is warranted.

  38. That's right, why use wholesome Himalayan or sea Saline on your body when you can go to the pharmacy and buy over the counter chemicals to fix a problem???

  39. How about just eat fruits and vegetables? Naturally keep your colon healthy. Cut out all processed non-foods.

  40. I drink selzer with 2 heaping tablespoons of ascorbic acid. After an hour or two, the most vile flow of smelly toxic sludge explodes out my ass. It's an acidic orange color, and I can feel my intestines, and ass burn. My insides gurgle for hours, then about 8 hours later, if ends, and I am 10 pounds lighter

  41. I don't think it should be regular after every once in awhile is good to detox your body and break up all the stool that's trap.

  42. I don't do it often at all. If I'm having flu like symptoms I'll do a cleanse and it has shorted my down time.

  43. this video is lie.since centuries (even bible describe enemas) healers used enemas and other techniques to clean colon, liver and kidneys etc… old fecal mucoid plaque will not clean itself , it will stay in colon even 40 years!

  44. I’m not even watching the video, I’m just commenting to my FBI agent because he know I’m on the toilet after taking 3 duplaxes watching Comedy Central on my iPad… not funny. 💩😒

  45. When you flush out the liver from stones you definitely need a colonic to prevent the stone from sitting in your GI tract

  46. A proper cleanse will not induce diarrhea at all. What needs to be cleansed is mucoid plaque and parasites. One three month colon cleanse cured my IBS. And what came out was unmentionable. So I definitely recommend for people suffering from digestive disorders. If I didn't cleanse I would be on prescription drugs. Who wins there? Colon cleanses are Big Pharma competition so it doesn't take a genius to see why so much buzz around the issue and the push to keep people stuffed with parasites and plaque etc.

  47. Peace with love it is necessary to do a colon cleanse get them damn worms out you parasites you can always put good back into your body
