You decide that you aren’t feeling well. An “herbal cleansing program” is purchased and used. in 2 to 3 days, the built up waste lining of the walls of your intestines sloughs off and is evacuated. Simple enough, right? Wrong!
Unfortunately there is a myth that we have something like 10-15 pounds of undigested red meat and other food stuffs sitting in our intestines, rotting and poisoning our bodies, Even though no doctor has seen such a layer when performing bowel reductions, scopes, or other procedures of the bowels, the “cleansing advocates” swear it is true. The swear (and show pictures) of the large snake-like bowel movements that they have after taking one of these cleansing products. What is going on?
These pills consist mainly of bentonite, an absorbent, expanding clay similar to kitty litter. Combined with psyllium, used in the production of mucilage polymer, bentonite forms a rubbery cast of your intestines when taken internally, mixed of course with whatever else your body is excreting. Surprise, a giant rubbery snake of toxins in your toilet.
Skeptoid did a pretty good episode on it a while back HERE!!

Its just yet another scam from the ‘true believers’....
