Thank you for the information,

Colon cleansing is usually advised by doctors when they want to do some examination of the colon or want to prepare for any procedure there. Otherwise it is not considered a safe procedure. It may lead to several complications like electrolyte imbalance , anemia, dehydration , malnutrition etc. In some cases it may lead to absorption of excess fluid into the body leading to heart failure. You may see this website for more information.

Hope this information will help you.
