You've probably seen those ads about cleansing, Beyonce's testimony about the lemon cleanse and other colon cleanse product reviews proliferating the blogosphere. You'd think does it work or more appropriately, is it worth it? Our body has natural ways to detoxify itself, this is why it is normally not recommended even by experts. Some of my friends did cleansing to lose weight, and they say it was effective, only problem is you have to do it regularly since the weight comes back after sometime. If you consider doing a colon cleanse, better consult an expert first. As for me, I'd do with a glass of water and a pinch of lemon to go with it.
