Colon cleansing is removing stool from the colon through the use of laxatives, enemas, enzymes, herbal teas, or dietary supplements. The theory behind colon cleansing is that it helps remove toxins from the body (detoxification) and helps the "good" bacteria in the colon to flourish.  This helps balance body chemistry, eliminate waste, and restore proper tissue and organ function.

Colon Hydrotherapy (also known as colonics) uses filtered water passed through the colon to accomplish detoxification and removal of excess toxins from the body. It has been known to help with weight loss, weight management and other types of physical cleanses.
