Do you want to stay safe while you colon cleanse? Read this article to get 3 of the top dangers you may face when you cleanse.

More and more people turn to colon cleansing as a way to lose weight, improve their health, change their diet and generally feel better.

It is a practice that has a long tradition, stretching all the way back to ancient Egypt. It's also a practice that is helping million of people every year.

That said, if you are considering colon cleansing, you should be aware of the risks and how to minimize them. Here is a list of the top 3.

1. Using contaminated water or equipment with enemas or colon hydrotherapy (colonics). If you decide to colon cleanse with either of these approaches you absolutely must insist on using pure water (distilled is best) and 100% sterilized equipment. There have been severe sicknesses reported by people who did not make sure of these two things.

2. Unsafe amounts or combinations of herbs. Some herbs used in colon cleanses are particularly powerful in producing detox reactions like diarrhea and headaches. The two to watch out for the moat are Senna and Cascara Sagrada. Andy cleanse you try should only have small amounts of these herbs.

3. Chemicals or other unsafe ingredients. Believe it or not some colon cleanse kits on the market contain non - organic ingredients that have traces of pesticides and other chemicals in them In addition some contain other ingredients that are not helpful to the cleansing process. Here is a partial list of what to avoid:
