Are you trying to lose weight? Do you feel bloated? Are you trying to find anything possible just to feel better? Many people today, in this technological era of  convenience, rely on the Internet to provide a “one size fits all” type of solution. We’re here to tell you that this may be more harmful than good for you.

Think of your body like a car.  Let’s say you don’t know much about cars, but you want to try and fix yours.  Sure,you can go on the internet and find a “quick fix” that may or may not work.  Ultimately,it is very possible that you may do more damage than good for your vehicle – and your sanity.  The same goes with your body.  A proper colon cleanse should only be done after consulting a professional.

SYMPTOMS YOU MAY BE EXPERIENCING

  • Constipation
  • Abdominal pain
  • Swollen stomach
  • Cramps
  • Change in bowel “routine”

Yes, with these symptoms you may have a minor issue with your colon.  However, the following, more severe, medical conditions also have similar symptoms:

  • Colitis: inflammation of the inner lining of the colon.  Symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal pain, cramps, and rectal discomfort.  Tests need to be run to find out why the colon is inflamed.
  • Diverticulitis: tiny blisters that develop on the inner lining of the large intestine (colon).  Symptoms include abdominal pain (usually on lower left side), diarrhea or constipation, bloating or gas, loss of appetite, and fever. This is treatable, however, in some situations along with complications, surgery may be necessary.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome: A disorder that affects the large intestine (colon).  Symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation, bloating or gas, or mucus in the stool.  There is no one specific cause for this disorder; genetic play a role…women have a higher chance of getting irritable bowel syndrome, especially abuse victims.

Never take any medical concerns lightly.  Always consult a medical professional before starting any “self treatments”.  Who knows…they may save your life and your sanity by putting your mind at ease with a proper diagnoses and treatment plan.
