IN common terms it means drink plenty of water every day (at least 2 litres) and you wont have to worry. If you pay for someone to give you a water enema (colon cleansing) you are a fool.

My friend gave me this website 'www.clinique-dtox.com' to find out more about this hydro therapy and I find it quite useful. I think drink a lot of water alone doesnt help to clean our colon and get rid of wastes and toxics COMPLETELY and THOROUGHLY, afterall the colon is so long. has anyone seen how the inside of the colon actually looks like? Check out these vids.

Colon cleansing can be good but its hardly a way to stay healthy and lose weight.

The best way is to diet, exercise, meditate, yoga etc and seek care from a professional that offers wellness care

If you really want to detox try a water fast. Fiber and water for constipation

Colon cleansing is crap. Quoth Wikipedia:

No scientific evidence supports the alleged benefits of colon cleansing.[2] The bowel itself is not dirty and barring drugs or disease, cleans itself naturally without need for assistance.[3] Some types of colon cleansing present potential hazards; the equipment used during colon cleansing has caused damage to the rectum in a small number of individuals, and caused amoebiasis when improperly sterilized. Certain enema preparations have been associated with heart attacks and electrolyte imbalances. Frequent colon cleansing may interfere with the proper functioning of the colon and can lead to dependence on laxatives or enemas to defecate. Some herbs used may also interact with or reduce the effectiveness of prescription drugs.[4]
