Your Options for Constipation: Why Oxygen Colon Cleansing is Best

In order to prevent constipation and promote colon health, it is recommended that one regularly cleanses the colon, small and large intestine. This is known as ‘colon cleansing.’ As the average adult has between 5 and 40 pounds of compacted waste in his or her bowels, a good colon cleanse would be of great benefit. It is important to know that all colon cleansing treatments are not equal, however.

There are five major ways that one can cleanse their colon. These are:

  • Colon Hydrotherapy (also know as colonic irrigations)
  • Enemas
  • Herbal supplements
  • Laxatives
  • Oxygen-based Cleansers

Each of these treatments has their pros and cons. For most, however, an oxygen-based cleanser will do the best job of removing the most toxic waste and improving the health of your colon. Let’s review each type of treatment to find out why.

Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon hydrotherapy (also known as colonic irrigations) is the process of inserting a tube in the anus and then flushing 1-5 gallons of water through the colon. The procedure can be completed either at home or at a clinic. If a colon is in a bad state of health, this process can be effective at getting the compacted material out of the large intestine rapidly. However this process also has a number of disadvantages.

Further, it can quickly become very expensive to go through this treatment. It costs between $25 and $100 per treatment and will take approximately 90 minutes of your time at each visit. Further, as the body is not made to have water shot inside of it, it is possible for the process to unnaturally extend the bowel and colon, potentially causing rips or stretching the lining of the colon. While this process will break off and flush out some of the ‘hard stuff’ on the colons intestine wall, it in fact gets none of the dangerous toxins and hardened material and mucous attached to the walls of the small intestine. Much of this material will remain.


Enemas are a treatment that has been used for many centuries to treat constipation. Their effectiveness, however, depends on the type of enema that is used. In general, enemas will only remove material from the lower part of the colon and none are able to oxidize or melt away the compaction. They are useful, however, for emptying the rectum , which is the lowest 8 to 12 inches of the colon. On the other hand, many do not like having to insert the enema into their rectal cavity.

The main types of enemas are water enemas (similar to hydrotherapy except using a bag and much less water), coffee enemas, and clay enemas.

Herbal Supplements

You’ll find many products online and on store shelves that contain psyllium husk. These are classified as herbal supplements and come in pill or capsule form. Psyllium is a bulk-forming laxative and is high in both fiber and mucilage. The laxative properties of psyllium are due to the swelling of the husk when it comes in contact with water. The resulting bulk when ingested stimulates a reflex contraction of the walls of the bowel. The psyllium acts as a hard sponge as it works it way down. This often causes an emptying of the bowel. Why herbal supplements can be effective for short term bowel emptying, they are not effective in fully cleansing the bowel, removing much of the toxic waste, or improving the health of the villi in the colon. In a sense, these types of products cause contraction but not oxidation—they do not internally cleanse. While these products are fairly inexpensive ($20 or so for a month’s supply), persons who either want to properly cleanse their colon or are suffering from constipation will want to use a proper oxygen-based colon cleanser.


Laxatives are used as temporary treatments of constipation. While they are often effective at clearing you out, they do not cleanse. They don’t touch the compaction one bit. Further, there are serious contraindications including dehydration and loss of muscle around the colon lining. This, after hydrotherapy, is the most dangerous treatment for constipation. If you want to treat temporary blockage, a laxative may be helpful. If you want to experience the benefits of a proper colon cleanse or have mild or chronic constipation, however, they won’t be of much use to you.

Oxygen-Based Colon Cleansers

The best way to get a thorough colon cleanse is through oxygen-based colon cleansers such as Oxy-Powder. The only way to properly melt away that compacted matter is through an oxidation reduction reaction. Oxy-Powder uses specialized ozonated magnesium oxides to reduce the solid toxic mass into a liquid or gas form. It works in the whole system, not just the large intestine as the other forms of constipation treatments. It cleans the entire intestinal tract and delivers much needed oxygen along the way--all without the side effects of laxatives and discomfort of enemas and hydrotherapy.
