Well you have a couple of options for colon cleansers.
OxyPowder is a good choice. It's a simple cleanse. Like you said you take some capsules before you go to bed.
Bowtrol is another colon cleansing that is simple. Similar to Oxypowder, you take some capsules at nite prior to bed. But it's slightly different then oxypowder, because Bowtrol is an Herbal Colon Cleanser. Oxypowder is an Oxygen Colon Cleanser.
Although, it must be noted that Bowtrol has some questionable herbs included in its formula. Cascara Sagrada & Senna are two ingredients that should not be taken excessively (7 days), and they are included in Bowtrol's formula. Keep in mind this is a 30 day colon cleansing program. I'm not saying that it would be unsafe to take this product, but it would be wise to double-check with your doctor prior to ingesting these two herbs.
Colpurin is another colon cleansing product that is pretty simple. There are two products you take, one you take the Internal Cleanse for 15 days and take the Total Body Purifier for a full 30 days. Colpurin also contains Cascara Sagrada.
Out of these three products, I would recommend OxyPowder. All of these products are around the same price range, none of them require you to mix fiber drinks or laxative teas, and are more convenient... which is what you are probably looking for. They are all effective in different ways. I would recommend OxyPowder because it is an effective process of colon cleansing.
I don't know if Oxypowder will get rid of the symptoms you spoke of, but I will say that I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to this kind of alternative medicine stuff. But I just finished taking Oxypowder and I had great success. I was glad taht I did it. I can't compare it to any other products, because the only colon cleansing product I've ever taken was Oxypowder.
I'm now thinking about doing a Liver Gallbladder Cleanse, but that's something completely different and MUCH more complicated. I'm still not completely sure if I am going to do it or not, but the reason I mention it, is because the OxyPowder cleanse inspired me to try and cleanse my entire body, and not just the colon.
I hope this message hits home for you. Because I was sitting where you are about three weeks ago, just trying to figure out what would be best for my body.
I am interested in Oxypowder as well. I'm not sure if it's what I want to do or not.
In response to GoldStar, how do you consider Colonix a simple colon cleanse? Do you think it's simpler than Oxypowder? Because to me, as a newcomer to colon cleansing and body detox, I think that Colonix would be incredibly difficult and inconvenient for me to do, especially for 30-90 days!! I work alot of hours, so I, personally, need something thats can fit in with my schedule
Also, GoldStar, I was wondering how the colonix herbs treated you. Did you have any long-term negative effects from the Senna? That was one of my biggest concerns and something I've read in other forums, is that these herbal concoctions have caused bowel dependancy and other side effects. That really concerns me!
I've never done any colon cleansing products, but after comparing Colonix to Oxypowder, it just seems to me that Oxypowder is the better cleanser. Their website has a ton of more information about their product, than Colonix does about theirs. The oxypowder testimonials are more organized. I'm generally more impressed with Oxypowder, than I am with Colonix.
