Dr Oz’s Colon Cleanser

Dr Oz’s Colon Cleanser

You've seen the ads - Dr Oz's colon cleanser, as recommended on Oprah! Or the Acai berry product that promises to flush 30 pounds of waste and toxins from your body. Do they work?

It's hard to go anywhere on the internet lately without seeing an ad for Maria's Diet Blog, Lynn's Weight Loss Story, or some other "personal" diet blog that promises the secret to losing weight and impressive testimonials. The mysterious women claim to have seen an episode of Oprah where Dr. Oz said we need to use colon cleansers to get rid of toxins and lose weight. The blogs always promote the same two products - Acai berries, and a colon cleanser.

In an industry based on both hope and deception, it's difficult to know who to trust. We look for names and faces that are familiar and never let us down. So if Dr. Oz and Oprah recommend a product then it has to work, right? Unfortunately, Dr. Oz and Oprah NEVER recommended a colon cleanser. In fact, Dr. Oz has specifically said just the opposite. On an episode of the Oprah show, Dr. Oz said we do not need colon cleansers. He said that we need to consume enough fiber in our natural diets, and drink enough water, and that is ALL that it takes to keep our bodies naturally cleansed. His exact words were If you eat the right foods, it will leave your body in half a day anyway. During an online Q&A with Dr. Oz, he was asked I get these e-mails about colon cleansing. Is it a good idea? He replied You'll get rid of more crap by deleting the e-mails. The intestines empty themselves completely if you eat a high-fiber diet.

Many of the ads/blogs proudly mention the acai was promoted by Rachel Ray on her show, some of the ads claim she loves it and it helped her lose weight. If you search YouTube, you can find a clip of the show and it's not exactly as described. A guest on Rachel Ray's show mentioned the antioxidants in acai and even let Rachel taste it. She didn't look impressed. And there was no mention of Rachel actually using the products, and weight loss was never mentioned. So much for that glowing advertisement!

Acai berries do not help weight loss. They are loaded with antioxidants that may help protect against cancer and other diseases, but they do not contribute to weight loss. Unfortunately, it's just another marketing scam.

The companies running these scam ads are quick to mention big names such as Oz, Oprah, and Rachel Ray because they know some of you will just take their word for it without investigating it further. The ads can be convincing, and we know that at least one of our members was taken in by them.

What do you get if you order their products? You will receive bogus, overpriced supplements that cannot live up to their claims because they are boldly lying. The products could be potentially dangerous, as similar products often are.

When you order the "free trial", you are not getting anything for free. You will be billed at least $79.95 just 14 days after placing your order, even if you have not received your trial yet. You will be automatically subscribed to a variety of other expensive services without realizing it. It's almost impossible to cancel because most people call the phone number provided for customer service but do not get through.

Internet complaint websites, such as RipOffReport.com, are overflowing with complaints about these two products as well as similar products. It's very sad to read how so many innocent people, who only wanted to improve their health, have been ripped off.

If you are interested in supplementing your diet with acai, please consider purchasing a legitimate acai product that can be purchased at local health food stores. You can read the ingredient labels and make sure you are getting a quality product at a reasonable price, without being taken for a ride.

If you are interested in colon health, please do not get taken in by the colon cleansing and detox scams that populate the market right now. Follow Dr. Oz's real advice - follow a diet naturally high in fiber, and drink plenty of water. The body is naturally cleansing and will take care of itself.

    Regarding the above mentioned Acai Berry and Colon Cleanse supposedly touted by and endersoned my Oprah and Dr. Oz.
    I saw an ad for these on Oprah’s website, and I figured if it is on her website she must endorse it to some degree. There was an ad for a free bottle, you just pay for the shipping and handling. So I ordered it.
    A few weeks later, I got the pills, I opened them, but they were huge and I cant swallow big pills, so i put the top back on and put it in the pantry. A couple of weeks later, I got another bottle, which again I put in the pantry, without opening it, then I got a bottle of the total cleanse, i put it in mypantry along with the acai berry bottles. Then the other night, I was going thru my bank statement, and found numerous debits that I had not authorized.
    it seems on a monthly basis, I was being charged a total of 128.21, three separate transactions, one for 89.31, one for 14.95 and one for 29.95.

    it appears that when you sign up for the free bottle, the fine print states that if you dont cancel, you automatically get a montly shipment. I have no idea what the other two charges are.

    I tried calling the numbers beside the charges on my bank statement, it is a lost cause/

    Moral of the story…….dont be fooled by something that looks too good to be true.

    so, even if acai berry is the new wonder drug….I will never take them,

    My one girlfriend did the same thing…but she never received the trial or the ongoing ones (that she wasn’t expecting). But boy they were charging her card inside and out. She would call and they would give this huge runaround, claiming they had her signature proving delivery (they even went as far to send her a copy of that as proof – wasn’t her signature and the date of delivery with the signature was a year BEFORE she had ordered it). She had to cancel her card so they couldn’t charge anymore. She then filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and then was able to get her money back.

    There’s no magical way to lose weight people – if it sounds too good to be true – it is.

    Any product touting a “colon cleanse” effect sounds like a poop-a-thon. Or something a doctor should oversee!

    I went on the internet and ordered this but I do not have a credit card and I put my address and phone number and cannot take the colon cleanse, so I want to cancel this order. How do I go about cancelling this? Thank you

  6. There are many sites on colon cleanse weightloss training but I have found your wp site highly informative and excellent reading. I have made a note of your site and was wondering if there any other websites that can provide the same quality of information on colon cleanse weightloss.
