colo prep

Hi Doc,

Can colo prep be used to cleanse my bowels or is it just for severe medical use? How often can I use it and is this good to cleanse the bowels every now and again?

No harm will be done if you want to use it once off. There is no medical benefit in colon cleansing. If you are suffering from constipation, rather consult your pharmacist, as there are many products available to this. After 50 years of age, it is definately beneficial to have a colonoscopy done, to screen for colon pathology.
