Hello. Thank you for posting.

Colon cleansing is an alternative medicine practice used to eliminate the build-up of wastes and toxins in the colon. While there are many purported benefits of cleansing, there are several side effects as well. Some of the most common side effects include nausea, vomiting, bloating, cramping, constipation and fatigue. These side effects are considered normal to the process of cleansing and will resolve with time. However, there are some side effects to cleansing that are more severe in nature and potentially dangerous.
