Colon Cleansers are even more effective when juice fasting but do not use them during water fasting.
There are some very effective products in cleansing the colon. Psyllium husk, which is the base for most colon cleansers, turns into a soft gel. It neutralizes toxins and fermentation in the colon during fasting, passing it harmlessly through the body. Psyllium husk is not needed in a raw food program because of the abundant soft fibers in fruit. However, there are various herbal blends designed for the recovery and healing of the intestines.

Cleansing The Colon Can Be Done Naturally By Simply Drinking More Water Every Day..
I wish that were true but water dose not pass through a functional colon. Only fiber from diet, can cleanse the colon or a colonic.
Hi again, just browsing the site trying to find some info i read on taking dietary fibre while fasting but I couldnt find it. So my question is on a juice fast is it ok to take dietary fibre once a day (fibre in powder form mixed with water). I am also doing the enemas.
Also Tom, i keep reading all these posts and am very impressed that you can respond to all of them since there are so many and you have great answers.
Fiber is great when you are eating but during a fast is keeps the colon active and increases hunger. When you are using an enema you are wasting money by taking fiber. The enema removes everything from the colon.
Would it really be bad to take colon cleansers during a water fast? Why?
Colon cleansers are a mixture of herbs and psyllium which has a tendency to cause mucus and slow the detox. Also less effective with water fasting as there is no food to push the herb psyllium mix through the intestine. Better to use the enema or use the colon cleaner with juice fasting as there is always some amount of fiber in the juice. But that is my theory, give it a try and report it as this site is about experimentation and results. I think your stomach would not feel good. But I am always happy to be proven wrong.
