According to Elson M. Haas, MD my number two go to guy when it comes to nutrition (Paul Pitchford being my number one), colon cleansing is one of the most important parts of detoxification. He reckons that much toxicity comes out of the large intestine, and sluggish functioning of this organ can rapidly produce general toxicity. A series of colonic water irrigations, best performed by a trained professional can be the focal point of a detox program, usually along with some cleansing diet and fiber supplements for toning and cleaning the colon. During a basic dietary detox program, other, more subtle colon stimuli are usually used to enhance colon action. These may include herbal or pharmaceutical laxatives, fiber and colon detox supplements, such as psyllium seed husks alone or mixed with other agents, for example, aloe vera powder, betonite clay, and acidophilus culture.
