There are quite a few misconceptions doing the rounds when it comes to colon cleansing. Let us throw some light on a few of them.

Everyone has to Undergo Colon Cleansing

This is a complete falsity. Colon cleansing if required is only for a few individuals. Science and conventional medicine claim that the colon by itself is good enough to tackle the problem of waste matter and it is not abnormal is someone has a bowel movement in only two or three days time.

It is only in cases of extreme constipation or other such ailments that one has to go for a colon cleansing. Even then it should be performed by someone who is an expert in the field and has a lot of experience behind him. One should also take the approval of his own physician before undergoing colon cleansing.

Colon Cleansing Prolongs One's Life

Ilya Metchnikoff, won the Nobel Prize for medicine in the early years of the 20th century. A highly respected scientist of his day he was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work with white blood cells and conclusion that they help in fighting infections inside our body. As he started to grow old a new topic entered his mind how to prolong one's life. He found a community of people who lived in the mountains of Hungary to live to an extremely old age. He knew that these people had yogurt in their regular diet. Somehow he came to the conclusion that lactobacilli, the bacteria present in the yogurt actually fights against the harmful bacteria inside their intestine and thus helps them to live longer. In others who don't have yogurt regularly the harmful bacteria can thrive and produce toxins which shorten our lives.

This is a view that many share still today. With due respect to Mr. Metchnikoff colon cleansing cannot by itself extend one's life. In fact the people he was doing his research on didn't actually live any longer than the average men, they just looked more old.
