Colon Detox & Intestinal Cleansing FAQs
Below is a list of questions and answers pertaining to the colon detox, the first step to cleansing toxins out of the body. Use the links on the left to scroll through our full body detox program -- the most comprehensive detox program that you can do right at home. Colon cleansing is not the end of detoxing--it's merely the first step. Colon detoxing, as we've previously discussed on this site, is required to clean out the elimination channels so that toxins released from the other forms of detoxification have a clear path out of the body. But the major work of detoxification, the dramatic improvements in health that most people are looking for, come more from those other detoxes than from colon cleansing.

Colon Detox Answers
There are no food restrictions on the colon detox, but be smart. Reduce your intake of what causes the problem in the first place: processed foods, excessive amounts of meat, commercial dairy, and sugar. Try to eat more fruits and veggies.
Yes, if you are doing the Metal Magic™, now is the time to take it. Although not mandatory, it makes all the sense in the world to do the heavy metal detox and the colon cleanse and the same time. The two detoxes complement each other. However, you do not want to take the Metal Magic™ and the Colon Regenerator™ at the same time each day. In fact, any supplement or medication you are taking, including the Metal Magic™, should not be taken within 20 minutes before or 60 minutes after the colon detox powder so that there is no chance the Colon Regenerator powder will absorb the medication or herbal remedy. The problem is probably more theoretical than actual, but why take a chance. The Metal Magic™ pulls the heavy metals free out of your bloodstream and out from your body's soft tissue and then safely carries them out of your body. The Colon Regenerator™ draws heavy metals out of the walls of your intestinal tract and colon and then safely passes them out with your stools. The two work together nicely to pull toxins out of the body and safely out the colon.
3. Will the Colon Regenerator drink interfere with my medications?
No, but to be on the safe side, it's recommended that you take any medications a minimum of 20 minutes before or 60 minutes after the colon detox powder so that there is no chance the Colon Regenerator™ powder will absorb the medication.
A normal bowel movement is soft and unformed. It should break apart when it hits the water -- or at least when flushed. This is not to be confused with diarrhea, which is characterized by water. If, while using the Colon Corrective, you have diarrhea or stools with NO consistency, reduce the dose of Colon Corrective until your stools establish some consistency.
5. What is the right amount of Colon Corrective?
It's when you sit down on the toilet and say, "WOW!" It's when you finish and look down and say, "Did all that just come from me?" In other words, if you have to ask if you're taking enough, then you're probably not. And, because Jon's formulas are more than just fiber, don't always expect to see the form of your colon in the toilet.
If you were to start a car that had been sitting idle in the garage for years, you would not expect it to start right up. You would expect to have to crank it over several times. You would expect it to blow some smoke, to backfire several times, maybe even shoot some flames out the tail pipe -- but then settle down and begin to purr. Your bowel is no different. Gas and bloating are the smoking and backfiring of the bowel. Work through it. Once you have rebuilt your bowel function, your intestinal tract will begin to purr like a well-tuned engine.
Unlike harsh chemical laxatives, it's practically impossible to become addicted to natural herbs. Not only are these herbs not addictive, they actually work to strengthen bowel function. In fact, there is no problem with continuing to use Colon Corrective indefinitely, even after finishing the Intestinal Cleanse.
8. Are there any special concerns if I have Colitis, Crohn's disease, or continuous diarrhea due to Candida?
Yes. If you have an overactive colon, then you do not want to take the Colon Corrective, which would increase that activity even more. If you have diarrhea or an overactive colon, start with the Colon Regenerator™ to soothe and calm your colon down. Eventually, as your colon function returns to normal, you may want to incorporate some Colon Corrective into your program.
The more consistent you are, the better overall results. If a dose is missed, make it up one hour after you have taken your next scheduled dose and take the Colon Regenerator for an extra day or two to finish the bottle.
To be on the safe side, it's recommended that you take any medications a minimum of 20 minutes before or 60 minutes after the colon detox powder so that there is no chance the Colon Regenerator powder will absorb the medication.
Absolutely. One scoop of Colon Regenerator taken with a glass of water will often help control the problems of mild food poisoning or stomach flu in as little as 20-40 minutes. If one dose doesn't work, try a second dose. Also, a strong dose of garlic, or garlic formula, is highly recommended in these situations, as it is highly antiviral, antibacterial, and antiparasitic.
During the intestinal detox, you can continue to take all of your supplements. When it comes time to do the liver detox, give your body a rest and use just essential supplements. To be on the safe side, it's recommended that you take any supplements or medications a minimum of 20 minutes before or 60 minutes after the colon detox powder so that there is no chance the Colon Regenerator powder will absorb them.
Rectal bleeding (unlike internal bleeding) is normally an insignificant condition -- similar to a bloody nose. It occurs due to a preexisting colon condition that leads to constipation and straining. As Colon Corrective wakes up the system and breaks apart toxins and build up, a few drops of blood may appear -- looking quite dramatic as they spread through the water. (Internal bleeding, on the other hand, is characterized by black or dark purple stools. If you experience internal bleeding see your doctor immediately.)
No. You may experience muscular movement, along with occasional cramping and aching, but these effects are minimal.
15. What should you do if you are taking the recommended dose of Colon Corrective and are having frequent bowel movements but very little waste?
People should experience 2-3 bowel movements a day. This is normal. It's possible that you could reduce your dosage if you are having more movements than that. This should regulate your system accordingly. Remember, with more movements, your waste content will be substantially less because you're going more frequently.
