Thanks for your reply Bethin. This is not a weight loss thing. It is a detox colon cleansing product that supposedly provides many benefits such as skin clearing, constipation-releiving, regularity-producing, parasite-killing, promotes good intestinal flora . . .
Since I've been on new meds, I am sooo constipated and have tried several different methods to get "regular" again, but to no avail. I don't want to take any more meds - hate all the side effects, and don't want to become dependent on stool softeners while on these meds. This product is all herbal and lasts from 1 - 3 months.
This product was rated #1 detox system by several health-conscious natural publications. We are so much trained in western medicine (as nurses in this country), that the integration of complementary modalities is often tossed to the side. I am in nursing school
and while I am grateful for all that I am learning, I don't want to forget about remedies/modalities that are natural and effective.
Problem is, I don't know much about colonics (in this case, colonix) and research seems to be biased depending on western perspective or non-traditional perspective. While I have much respect for research that the drug companies do, I am also aware that the money just isn't there for research that involves herbal products that don't require scripts from docs or ARNP's. I am inclined to try this program, but am hesitant only because it lacks scientific backing (which only means that western medicine has no reason (economical, anyway) to waste time researching it). Thanks for taking the time to read this! ----- more prune juice on the way! :smile:
