I used laxatives and stool softeners for years, by my doctor's request. they would help relieve the constipation I had at that moment, but I would be constipated again within a day or so. I'm sure you know exactly what I mean. That's why I took it on my own to find something that works.
I've never done the mastercleanse, so I can't say much about it.
I have done both Colonix & oxypowder, and by far, the oxypowder worked much better. The Colonix only made me more constipated then I was before I started. I drank alot of water and called the Colonix people. Nothing ever helped. Colonix is not a bad product by any means, please dont think I am saying that. But it just seems that if you already have constipation problems, then Colonix will only make them worse.
Because of my constipation, I take oxypowder. It will work for you, and for the price of just one bottle of oxypowder, is cheaper then one month of Colonix. And the Oxypowder will easily last long enough for both you and your husband to do a cleanse.
But Oxypowder works on different principles then Colonix. Oxypowder is an Oxygen Colon Cleanse, where as Colonix is an Herbal Colon Cleanse. Both work great. I've just found that Oxypowder works better for me and my constipation issues.
