There are many so called "colon cleanse myths" that are doing the rounds.

Some of these are positive while others make you want to run the other way.

However how authentic these claims are is yet to be determined.

Unfortunately a lot of this information actually keeps people away from experiencing the benefits of colon cleansing.

Here's a list of stuff I put together about myths and my thoughts on them, enjoy!

Myth #1: Colon Cleansing Can Cure Anything Instantly!

Couldn’t be further from the truth! You can't really expect anything to happen instantly other than death, and even that can take time, uhh!

Anyway, colon cleansing involves cleaning out years of accumulated waste and toxin build-up, so you can see that it won't happen overnight.

It takes regular colon cleansing with enemas, hydrotherapy or whatever method you choose to use, and alongside that you have to eat a good diet and not put more crap in there!

Myth #2: Colon Cleansing Isn't Necessary

This is debatable, doctors say that it can be unnecessary, but the people who have actually tried it and live by it have experienced amazing benefits. Who should we believe?

I think it can be worth atleast trying once to see what happens, if you experience hell, then maybe you're body is really fooped up or it isn't for you ;-).

The fact is that our bodies were never meant to digest all the weird food we put in our mouths today. Too much fat, sugar and man-made ingredients!

What our stomachs need is:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Whole-Grain
  • Legumes

Eat as much fruit and vegetables as you want, I dare you! You will feel awesome.

Myth #3: The Body Absorbs Too Much Water During A Cleanse

It is true that the body absorbs SOME amount of water during a colonic or enema, but it is not enough to cause any weird side-effects.

Although some nutrients will be flushed out during a cleanse, they can easily be replenished by eating fruits and vegetables, or even making some fresh yummy juices, mmmm... juices....drool..

Myth #4: Colon Cleansing Equipment Will Give You An Infection!

If you make sure to find a professional hydrotherapy clinic or anything similar the chances of this happening are pretty microscopic.

The equipment that goes anywhere near your bum is heavily sterilized and cleaned for your safety.

On the other hand, if you decide to go for an enema at home you'll have to make sure the equipment is clean before things happen.

Myth #5: You Can Become A Cleansing Addict And Your Stomach Will Not Function EVER Again!

Oh noes! Never? :(.

Sorry, I sometimes get caught up in debating with myself.

Back on point! If you were to use harsh laxative chemicals this would be more true than using natural colon cleansing methods.

Did you know that enemas have been around since something like 1,500 B.C when the Egyptians started to get fond of them?

It's true! They said something along the lines of "All disease starts in the colon.", don't quote me on that! ;)

I hope you enjoyed this article. I certainly did have fun writing it!
