Some Doctors comment on darkened colon walls and advise to stop herbs.
Here is what I recommend:
When you are going to have a colonoscopy you will want to stop taking Jim's (or any other herbal remedy) 3 weeks prior to your procedure.
The darkening does not effect the function of your colon, but doctors would prefer you to be constipated or taking a pharmaceutical solution since they do not have any training in herbal remedy.

I am wondering if you changed your formula, the first time I ordered your products they worked GREAT.
The second batch I just got maybe 3-4 weeks ago is not working and I am taking more pills then ever.
Did you change something because nothing is working and I did not change anything from when I was taking the original bottles you sent me to the news ones sent except taking more to obtain no results.
Thank you for using Jim's Colon Pills and Jim's Colon Cleanse
I researched your purchase history and discovered you first purchased the "Jim's Colon Cleanse". The second purchase was Jim's Colon Pills - two different products.
Seems like the colon cleanse works better for you. The cleanse is a bit stronger and designed to clean out old debris.
Most common use is one cleanse and as many pills as needed to get ideal bowel movements.

When you purchase again be sure and select the Colon Cleanse.
Thanks for your question,
To Your Health,
I have been taking Jim's colon pills for about a year ( 2 every night). They have really seemed to help but are they addictive or is this ok to keep taking them indefinitely?
Yes it is ok to take as you need them. - Not Addictive.
With a bit of effort at some point you may be able to juggle your busy life and with some lifestyle changes get off the colon pills. When you are ready (and it takes work) we can help you understand what it will take:

After starting the colon pills I find my stomach kind of puffing up with swelling and it is not moving out the next morning (following the routine). I got worried about taking them after trying for a few times. It seems to bulk in me. Any suggestions? Kristi starting the use of a bulking product can be tricky at first. Here is a Check List to make sure you keep on target...
Detoxifying is essential in speeding full recovery from constipation Read my Detoxifying book online free here"This is one of the chief reasons why I am opposed to drug medication because its sole aim seems to be the suppression of symptoms. Pain, the chief symptom, is not a disease, but simply the messenger bringing warning of the disease to the brain. To silence this messenger, yet leave the disease unchecked, is folly. It would be just as reasonable, if the house were on fire, to cut the cord of the alarm bell, and to conclude because you could no longer hear the bell that the danger was past. Disease, therefore, is beneficial, should be welcomed as a friend, and every assistance given to Nature to assist her in restoring normal conditions."

My daughter is a Yoga teacher with over 200 students ages 18 to 85 collectively in three classes.
She teaches with great success. So, "exercise" or the lack of it, is not an issue.
However, for many months she has had bouts of 3 to 4 days of constipation, even though her diet consists of many fruits and veggies; it is very unnerving to say the least.
Her family drove down to the states from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada and stayed with us for about 10 days.
During that time, I spoke to her about Jim's Colon Pills, which I was already taking, which has resulted in my having 3 bowel movements per day when I increased the dose to 3 pills at night plus 3 in the a.m.
She started with 1 Colon Pill before bedtime plus a Colon Cleanse in the morning about 1/2 hour before breakfast.
The 2nd day, "all hell broke loose."
Her bowels moved twice a day, then I suggested she also take 2 Colon Pills at night.
Botton Line: She is now back in Canada and only taking 1 Colon Pill at night and 1 in the a.m.
Last week she said her bowel movements were 3 to 5 per day. I told her, that if the "tail end" is "watery," to back off and skip a day without taking any pills.
She is ecstatic with the results (3 bowel movements per day) and her energy level has increased substantially.
Thank you so much for Jim's Colon Pills.
Thanks for the great feedback

Are the colon pills safe for children? My almost 3 year old suffers from frequent bouts of constipation. right now, she has to take kondremul (mineral oil) every day and she still can go 1 to 2 days with no bowel-movements. When she does go it is very painful.
We've tried all sorts of traditional meds. including baby suppositories, dietary adjustments but nothing seems to help. I know the pills work for me, so I was just wondering if the colon pills would work for her. what do you think?
Thank you in advance.
Thank you for asking your question.
I have found that constipation in children is universally a problem stemming from the friendly bacteria being replaced by bad bacteria.
Here is the short list of things that kill off the good bacteria and cause the bad bacteria to flourish:
I recommend L. Salivarious and Flora-G Plus to assist in re-establishing the good bacteria (and L. Salivarious to have on hand for any upset tummy).
Then, continued maintenance with Flora-G Plus. You can safely give as much of these two bacteria products to your daughter with no fear of overdose.
You should avoid acidophilus in any large dosages as overdose is possible - so don't go look for good bacteria locally - few places carry the correct bacteria.
As to the colon pills - not recommeded for 3 yrs and not needed once the freindly bacteria is re-established.
I AM A 44 YO FEMALE WITH HYPOTHYROID & GERD. I CAN REMEMBER BACK TO MY TEENS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH BM'S. SOMETIMES IT WILL BE ONCE A DAY, USUALLY EVERY 2-3 DAYS. MY FATHER & SISTER HAVE HAD GREAT SUCCESS WITH THE PILLS, BUT I DON'T SEEM TO HAVE THE SAME RESPONSE. I HAVE BEEN TAKING THEM SINCE JULY 25TH AND HAVE WORKED UP TO 1 IN THE AM, 1 BEFORE LUNCH AND 2 AT BEDTIME. I STILL USUALLY ONLY HAVE 1 BM PER DAY (SOMETIMES ALOT & OTHER DAYS VERY LITTLE) COULD I BE DOING SOMETHING WRONG? I AM ON THE JENNY CRAIG DIET PLAN & EITHER BIKE RIDE OR WALK 4-5 DAYS A WEEK.

I was wondering if my children can take the pills too. One is 11 and the other 9. My youngest can clear a room when he passes gas and sometimes when he goes to restroom. Is it safe to use for kids and if not is there something you recommend. Please advise...
Less sugar more vegetables.
Add in enzymes if still problem after bacteria
I have been purchasing Jim's Colon pills for over a year and have been taking them everyday. I just had a colonoscopy and everything was clear except that my colon was dark (melatonin)and not pink.
The Dr. attributed this to overdosing on laxatives. I only take one pill a day. When told about the pills the Dr. said that Senna could contribute to this. I know that this is one of the ingredients. What are your thoughts on this? I will probably stop taking the pills now. I am hoping that my colon will return to normal.
