should i colon cleanse while on meds
Feb 14, 2009

hi, firstly I'd like to thank you for such a great and informative web site. I'd like to know if colon cleanse is really a good for people with hiv and on meds? if so which ones would you say are the best? i look forward to your response. thanks

Response from Dr. McGowan

I am not aware of any scientific evidence that supports the value of colon cleansing for "people with HIV and on meds." There may not any specific harm related to this practice but there is no evidence of any specific benefit.
