The reason why we perform colon cleansing and detoxification may not be because of constipation, but it is the most obvious reason. Constipation problems literally affect millions of people every single week but most of the time they remain unreported. There is no denying the fact that many of the use of remedies indeed help clear up short term cases of constipation. However, unlike a colon cleansing product, some of the remedies will not help prevent future problems with constipation because they do not address the underlying problem: concentrated feces on the walls of the colon and intestines. Only a complete colon cleansing and detoxification will help flush the underlying problem and prevent constipation problem.
