5 lbs of waste in colon?

5 lbs of waste in colon? Topic: 5 lbs of waste in colon?

Question: Is it okay for a 16 year old to try a colon cleanse, preferably the Master Cleanse? I was really disgusted to hear that an average person holds around 5 lbs of junk in their colon and that's probably the reason why I always feel bloated. If a colon cleanse is recommended, what are some home remedies? How long should the cleanse last? Thanks !

What ever you do, please don't try the Dual Action Colon Cleanse. it is a complete waste of money. I am a very irregular person so I know I probably have about 10 lbs of waste. I have been researching hydro colon therapy. It is not that expensive. I live in Mississippi and I have been quoted prices of less than $60. This is the service many of the stars use. Just type in hydro colon therapy and your location. There will find services in your area. Hope this helps.

The immediate problem with being underweight is that it might be secondary to, and/or symptomatic of, an underlying disease. Unexplained weight loss requires professional medical diagnosis. Underweight can also be a primary causative condition. Severely underweight individuals may have poor physical stamina and a weak immune system, leaving them open to infection. According to Robert E. Black of the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, "Underweight status ... and micronutrient deficiencies also cause decreases in immune and non-immune host defenses, and should be classified as underlying causes of death if followed by infectious diseases that are the terminal associated causes."[4] People who are malnutrative underweight raise special concerns, as not only gross caloric intake may be inadequate, but also intake and absorption of other vital nutrients, especially essential amino acids and micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals. In women, being grossly underweight can result in amenorrhea (absence of menstruation), infertility and possible complications during pregnancy. It can also cause anemia and hair loss. Underweight is an established[5] risk factor for osteoporosis, even for young people. This is a particular insidious consequence, because the affected persons do not notice the danger.[6][7] After the occurrence of first spontaneous fractures the damage is often already irreversible. Being underweight causes increased mortality at rates comparable to that seen in morbidly obese people[8]. One of the first things to shrink will be a woman's breasts. You will lose muscle as the body eats it for nutrition. You will start looking like a starving person, thin and sickly. When your immune system goes you can catch anything that comes around and not be able to fight it off.

The average person is not 16 years old. Enemas are effective but have their own draw backs, not the least of which is they can be very messy. A good colon cleanse product can do the job simply and effectively. However, adding the right kinds of fiber to your diet can also achieve good results. Check below for more colon cleanse articles.

Hi, I don't think that a 16yr old would have much waist built in the colon as a older adult might have. Like Tanya has stated, colonic irrigation is much better than all those chemicals. If you want to try anything, give yourself a two quart warm water enema at home, this will flush everything out.

Konnor Originally Answered: Why would anyone waste money on Shakeology?
I know several people that have tried Herbalife, Isagenix, Nanci, Nutrilite, Healthy People, and Advocare weight loss supplements. They all weigh the same or more than when they started. And ended up with a bunch of product. Alli is the only over the counter weight loss product approved by the FDA and your Health Ministry. There are only three prescription weight loss medications approved. Do you think that if any of them REALLY worked we would have a $60 billion a year industry in "weight loss" supplements? The big three pharmaceuticals would dominate the market. Approved or otherwise, none of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program. So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money? You will be spending somewhere between $10 and $30 per day on products that are not approved or guaranteed to do anything. The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin. $300 to $900 per month would get you a premier spa membership and the positive feeling that comes from working out and feeling healthier. All of the above mentioned diet products are "multi level marketing" or "work from home" programs. I think these products are the worst since they exploit both the desires of people to lose weight and to make money. I live in a very nice area of Scottsdale, AZ. 90% of the "make money from home" signs along the roads are Herbalife when you call and press them for information. These companies are more concerned with profits than weight loss. Shakeology is no different. It is about the money.
