How Often Should You Do a Colon Cleanse?

How often should you do a colon cleanse? A common question our specialists gets asked all of the time. With all wellness treatments, it's essential to understand what you're doing and how it will affect your body.


What Is Colon Cleansing?

Colon cleansing is the act of flushing out your large intestine and all of the nasty bacteria, undigested foods and mucus build-up that can get stuck in your colon. Your large intestine is 2.13m long (as tall as you are and as wide as your wrist) and everything you consume has to pass through it so it's only natural to have build-ups over time. These build-ups can produce toxins that will not only negatively affect your gut health but will also impact your entire body. Colon cleansing will help eliminate toxins, decrease bloating, improve your immune system, mental outlook, gut health and digestion.


So, how do you know when it's time for a colon cleanse? Our body is always talking to us and it's our job to listen. If your gut isn't healthy, it will show signs. A few noticeable ones to look out for include:

  • Constipation and digestive issues
  • Skin problems such as rashes, acne, eczema and breakouts
  • Aches and pains
  • Bloating, weight gain and inability to lose weight
  • Weak immune system and frequent colds
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue


If you are suffering from these symptoms, you should check in with your gut health and consider a colon cleanse. There are a few different methods to consider. Colonic irrigation involves physically flushing your colon with water to remove waste and should be done professionally. Another method is through consuming a cleansing formula. With this method, it's important to do your research and make sure that you aren't putting something toxic or unhealthy in your body. As it could potentially harm and strip your insides resulting in a bacterial imbalance.


How Often Should I Colon Cleanse?

This is a great question! It’s important to know how frequently you should be colon cleansing before you get started. If you overdo it, you could cause some serious damage to your gut. If you are considering getting hydrotherapy, we recommend speaking to a colon hygienist about what type of hydrotherapy plan will be suitable for you. If you’re planning to try a cleansing capsule, be aware that every pill is different. The intake frequency and ingredients found in colon cleansing pills differ depending on the brand.

As for our Overnight Cleanse pill, you can use it every night for 4-5 nights for the initial flush. If you're looking to manage your gut health on-going, you can use the Overnight Cleanse pill on weekends or at the beginning of every month. When you haven't had a proper bowel movement, you can use it that night or the following nights until you feel relieved. It will help soften up your stools, get things moving for you, and can be used as needed.

The beauty of our all-natural formula is that you can cleanse from home and don't need to book an appointment with health professionals. You simply take the capsules before bed and go to sleep. It should be taking effect when you wake up, and you will need to use the bathroom.
