Colon cleansing?

Anonymous
Posted by Anonymous

Ever since I had my second child I've had awful digestive issues. My colon constantly gets backed up, to the point where if I lay flat it feels like there is a rock where my colon is. My doctor suggested I stop eating red meat and dairy, but I'll admit, the dairy is a tough one for me! I want to try a cleanse. Has anyone ever done it? Any suggestions?

Your title made me think of the Nutty Professor.

IDK. Good luck. Maybe try prune juice?

 My Dh has used them before. He thinks they work good.

If this is an ongoing issue, you should see an gastro-intestinal doctor.

Nopolena....Wal-Mart and Walgreens have it...it's fiber that will get things moving. I have always had stomach issues....I was at a point I need Sopositories daily just to go...the nopolena helps.

I have never done it but I watched that show My Strange Addiction last night and this husband and wife were ADDICTIED to giving themselves coffee enemas. When I read your title that's what it reminded me of Lol!

I've done cleanses before and I thought they worked great.
