However, colon cleansing can cause serious side effects ranging from vomiting to kidney failure and death, the authors of the report say. READ MORE: Colon Cleansing Has No Health Benefit, May Harm: Report

With a well balanced diet you'll be cleansing your colon daily and that is a lot easier than going to a day spa and letting them stick a tube up there. I do have some herbal colon cleanse tea, but I've only used it when constipated and it helped. I'll pass on those tubes and chemicals though.
