Crohn's and Colon Cleanse Reply
by: Inna

Hello Jamie,

Thanks for your question. Many Crohns patients are wondering if it's really safe to do colon cleanses.

If you would ask a gastroenterologist, the answer would be "probably not".

If you look for a serious medical study, you won't find it. But.. you won't find a study that states "safe colon cleanses are not appropriate".

If you ask a holistic practitioner, the answer would be "Yes" to safe colon cleanses.

I think that safe and mild colon cleansing is absolutely appropriate in mild Crohn's cases or remission Crohn's cases depending on each individual case of course. It's only my opinion as a Crohn's patient. This won't substitute seeing your medical doctor.( I have to say that as my disclaimer).

Colon cleanses were actually pretty effective in Crohn's patients that have diarrhea followed by constipation cycles.

You need to choose a mild colon cleanse that has 3 steps: to detoxify toxins, then to trap toxins and then to get rid of the toxins.

It's recommended to be done about every 6 months or so.

I have my mind set on a few different products to recommend that I actually tried and was happy with. Let me know if you need that info.

If you decide to go through with colon cleansing, please let us know how it went. Many Crohn's patients would appreciate this.

I wish you all the best, Inna

Colon Cleansing For Crohn's Patients
by: twobaby

I just finished doing a colon cleanse yesterday it was recommended for me to take 2 capfuls every 4 hours a day.

The medicine was not very pleasant tasting but the first day I took it I felt a little more energetic.

The second day I had lots of gas and bloating. It helped me go to the bathroom but I was still rushing to get there.

I sort of felt uncomfortable because I would wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom.

I wouldn't really recommend anyone with Crohns to take it because I still have problems and after my last day of digesting it my bile became bloody.

Thank you so much Twobaby for sharing your experience.

Each Crohn's case is different.

Whatever works for one patient, won't always work for another.

Would you mind sharing what brand of colon cleanse you used? Thanks
