Question: colon cleansers

 hudz - Sun Jun 20, 2010 4:25 pm

Can you use colon cleansers when you're as young as 14?

User avatar Hello,
I suppose it depends on your reasons for using these and what you are using. Some people do a colon cleanse by fasting or using clear liquids, then following with a restrictive diet. If the nutrients you need are present it may not be a problem, but if it is in the form of an enema, these should be used sparingly in constipation only.

Best wishes.
