    Has anyone seen the informercial for this stuff? It is a bit funny in that I have never heard such a frank discussion on TV about bowel movements. But this guy is claiming that he produced a 6 foot long stool, with worms, after Almighty Cleansing!!!

    Allegedly some women claim to only have one movement a month. :rolleyes: I don't think that is even possible without the need for emergency medical attention.

    Yeah, I've had the misfortune of seeing that infomercial. It's the most ridiculous stuff I've ever heard. He's got some *problems* to say the least. And, yeah, you're not going to have one bowel movement a month unless you're starving yourself. I'm surprised it's even legal for him to make such outrageous claims. I don't even think someone on muscle relaxants can keep their sphincter open long enough for a 6 foot stool to exit. And, considering the entire colon isn't even usually that long (about 5 ft in most people), and water absorption is occurring through the length of it, it's rather incredulous that anyone would have that large of a stool that was fully formed. Much of that would still be quite watery if expelled all at once.

    I've seen the informercial too and I think there are two reasons it is only on late ;)
    Really phoney too. It's setup like a talk show. Just the name is silly too " Almighty Cleanse!!!".

    Here are the ingredients

    Well, at least it looks nutritious! :rofl: The name makes it sound like something to clean your bathroom, not to help you use the bathroom.

    I think the record was my younger cousin who could manage about a foot long poop at a time (pretty much the length of one's rectum in one shot). We considered this to be quite ABnormal, especially my poor aunt who would have to go into the bathroom after him and break it up with a clothes hanger before flushing so it wouldn't clog the toilet. I wonder if he knows we used to talk about his poop when he was a kid. :uhh: Now that he has kids of his own, maybe I should ask. :biggrin: :devil:

    It sounds like it would clean the bathroom, clean your colon, and provide eternal salvation - all for one low price!

    I don't think they want you to understand the name so you think its some fancy medicine. In all those "anti-age" advert nobody knows what they are on about, or atleast most of their customers don't. :confused:

    I know we are talking about the actual product here, but I am not really sure how much you need that. A healthy well balanced diet will avoid six foot monster.

    What a disturbing product. Its apparent from the ingredients list that the guy who "invented" the product has just taken anything that is said to either be naturally good for the digestive system or a natural laxative and put them all together.

    Not to mention his toilet would NOT flush that at all.

    See, that's the hilarious thing about the product. Most of us would consider such a thing a horrendous sign of a diet gone very awry, yet in the infomercial for this product, that's lauded as a positive outcome of the product. He's trying to tell you there's something wrong with having anything less than a 6 foot stool!

    I was worried that mine was less than 6ft - but fortunately the next ad was for a big pickup being swung around on a centrifuge so I compensated by buing that instead!

    I'll have you know that my hot chili relishes and salsas are wonderful promoters of a healthy digestive system. They won't clean you out, though you may be able to time the progress of particularly spicy meals through your system with a little practice.:rofl:
