Colon Cleanse for Detox


Colon cleansing is one of the top reasons why women choose to go on a detox retreat. Yet do you need to go to a retreat center to detox your colon?

And while we’re at it, is it even healthy to do colon hydrotherapy? And are there natural ways to cleanse the colon that aren’t so intrusive?

These are all good questions and come from women looking for answers on how to best cleanse the colon and ensure the digestive system is functioning.

Why is colon cleansing important?

Sometimes in today’s stressful world the colon can become constipated or congested causing all kinds of problems to your gut health.

On a detox retreat one of the core things that we do is use either a natural type of oral cleanse for the colon, or colon hydrotherapy for the guests that need that treatment.

What exactly is a colon cleanse?

What this does is completely flushes out the entire colon and anything that may be trapped or stuck to the internal walls. This allows the digestive system to recover and can improve gut health.

Are there clear benefits of cleansing the colon?

There are many mixed opinions about colon cleansing and in no place is this more true than in the detox retreat industry. Some detox retreats have a regiment of no less than three colon cleanses everyday!

For my retreats I usually suggest that guests approach colon cleansing using wildcrafted and natural herbs first. Using different types of cleanses for example from the Indonesian Jamu tradition.

These are healing herbs and spices that are concocted together into a natural colon cleansing drink. They are not a laxative, yet they can make you want to go to the toilet.

Most of all what these herbs are doing are having an effect on the body to flush out any debris that may be caught in your colon.

What are the risks of doing a colon (hydrotherapy) cleanse?

There definitely are risks associated with colon cleansing and this is one of the reasons why I don’t recommend it to most of my guests.

For most women doing a hydrotherapy colon cleanse because it is just not necessary.

It is far better to focus on using natural herbs and spices for detoxifying the entire body, including the colon.

For guests who are very constipated and are clearly having trouble in that area, then hydrotherapy may be recommended. However it is important that you understand this risks of hydrotherapy treatment.

Some of these include severe problems like Bowel perforation which is when there can be a tear in the lower intestine. If this is the case then it can be very serious and medical attention is required.

Other dangers include dehydration, Electrolyte imbalance, as well as bacterial infections.

While there clearly are dangers of doing a hydrotherapy colon cleanse, in my experience I have not met or heard of anyone who has experienced any problems with it. Yet this is something you should check with your doctor first.

Things you should do Before colon cleansing

Colon cleansing is not something you should take lightly. Regardless of whether you are doing it at a certified detox retreat or if you are even just using a home enema kit to cleanse at home.

In fact before you do any intrusive cleansing there are three things you should definitely do:

  1. Meet with your doctor to discuss your detoxification plans and what you intend to do. Your doctor may well have their own input and will be able to help you make better health decisions. What’s more your own doctor should know your personal history and whether or not this is a healthy choice based on where you are medically at.
  2. If you are attending a detox retreat then be sure to consider your options. There are many sham retreats which are only about making money and take little care and attention with their clients. This unfortunately can be especially true if you are choosing a detox retreat in Thailand or some other wellness destination that is not up to American standard.
  3. Prepare your body with a preliminary cleanse. Colon cleansing is considered an advanced cleansing practice. Which is funny considering so many people want to jump into doing a hydrotherapy colon cleanse on day one. Yet the reality is you should be doing the colonic cleansing alongside a cleanse plan that makes sense and is in line with your health and wellness goals.

What is the difference between hydrotherapy colonic irrigation and a natural colon cleanse?

In the detox industry many words get thrown around with little meaning. Some people say “detox” others say “cleanse”, some mean “colon cleanse” to mean hydrotherapy and there can be a lot of confusion because of this.

The reality is and something I make plain at the beginning of all my detox retreats. Is that a colon cleanse is a type of cleansing that takes many forms.

There are many different whole foods for example that can have a cleansing effect on the colon.

Whole Foods

In fact, any high fiber fruit or vegetable contains the roughage needed to effectively begin to cleanse your colon.

Psyllium husk

There are also items like Psyllium husk that likewise target the colon. The way Psyllium husk works is by actually passing through your stomach, digestive system and colon, without being digested.

Instead it absorbs lots of the debris and possibly even “toxins” in the body. Then it simply comes out the other end hopefully providing a detoxifying effect.

My experience with Psyllium husk however is that at times it can cause an irritation in the gut, which is not comfortable for guests. So I usually do not use Psyllium for my detox retreats because I don’t see it as being necessary.

The only exception to this is if a client is very hungry and doing a full fast or long intermittent fasting. Then Psyllium husk can be a good way for keeping the stomach feeling full, while detoxing.

Bentonite Clay

Bentonite clay is another way of detoxing the colon. Bentonite is taken orally and it is exactly what it sounds like. It is clay.

Yet the clay passes through your digestive system without being absorbed and acts as a kind of “sponge”. It absorbs the bits and pieces throughout your gut and then is exited out the other end, so to speak.

Again Bentonite clay is not my favorite. And in many ways Bentonite clay should be put in a category alongside colonic irrigation and/or home enema kit. The reason for this is I do not suggest taking Bentonite clay unless you are also doing a colonic irrigation or enema at least.

This is because what can happen and something that I know has happened to a friend of mine on a retreat. Is the Bentonite clay can actually become stuck in your gut!

That’s why it should only be done alongside hydrotherapy for safest results.

What’s the difference between hydrotherapy and a home enema kit?

A home enema kit is something you can usually pick up at your local health shop or online. It functions in a very simple way where you simply fill it up with water and a tube runs down that you insert into your anus.

You can actually do an effective colon cleanse at home using an enema kit. And even many of the top detox retreats use enema kits instead of colonic irrigation. So it definitely is an option.

Does colonic irrigation help you lose weight?

It can. There are many factors to this however.

For a start when you do hydrotherapy for example, it is flushing your colon with a lot of water and definitely removes some debris that will help weight loss.

What’s more now that your digestive system is beginning to heal and you are becoming more regular, you should notice some weight loss because of this too.

On my detox retreats it is really difficult to tell because like I mentioned earlier, it’s a case of doing colon cleansing as part of a proper cleanse plan.

And so the weight loss results my clients see is because of the cleanse as a whole. Guests lose weight because now they are eating foods that help burn fat and are lower in calories.

They lose weight because of the Yoga and fitness classes, because of the walking, because of the increased water and fluid intake. And many more factors, too.

I am sure the colon cleanses are helping guests to lose weight, yet we take a more holistic approach. And overall guests are losing weight whilst on the retreat and those who continue when they return home are keeping it off. And that’s what counts.

    Because of the way we live our lives in the present, we tend to experience a lot of stress. The stress affects our body as the stress produces toxins when we are in distress. Also due to the fast paced lives we lead, we also tend to eat a lot of bad food. We eat a lot of junk food and processed food. All of each has a lot of preservatives and a lot of chemicals. Because of this, we tend to keep a lot of toxic matter in our body. In order to keep healthy, we must always do a regular colon and liver cleanse.
    How to Colon Cleanse?
    The colon cleanse is simple to do. To help you, you can go to any local store to buy psyllium husks. There are many brands. Just ask the saleslady for her opinion. Ask her which one would be better for your needs. Also ask for her recommendations. You can also add bentonite, which softens the stool and allows it come out easier.
    There are many other products in the market that aid in colon cleansing but these are the most basic and the more common ones. After this, make sure that you find out the dosages. There would be instructions as to how much of the psyllium husks and bentonite you are to take and how long you should be taking them for.
    Make sure that you drink lots of water. The psyllium husks would expand in your tummy and go through your digestive system like a broom getting all the dirt from the sides of the colon. If you do not drink enough water, you will constipate because the bulk of the fiber from the husks will not be able to come out well.
    Also make sure that you have enough intakes of vegetables and fruits which also have fiber in them. You have to nourish your digestive system by taking food supplements which contain probiotics. This will aid in the replenishment of good bacteria in your body. You can also take cayenne pepper which aids in the soothing of your gastric area and the digestive system.
    What about other supplements?
    To complete your colon and liver cleanse, you need to take vitamins that would look after your liver. Milk thistle is one good product. There are many brands in the market. Just get recommendations as to which one would be the best. The milk thistle would help cleanse your liver as it gets rid of all the toxins that have hit it during those many drinking sprees and the many late nights. After this you will experience a very regular bowel movement as a result of all the toxic material exiting your body.

    Have you heard of Acai?

    An Acai berry is a relatively small fruit (about the size of a grape). But, do not be fooled by the size, it is packed with ‘superfruit’ strength. This berry is naturally found at the heart of the Amazon rainforest, but do not be surprised finding Acai berry in South American jungles. These berries contain more anti-oxidants than the other well – known sources like red wine and pomegranate. It also has various uses, one of its best is being for colon cleanse detox.
    Detox is actually ‘detoxification’ or ‘detoxify’ cut short. There are reasons why many people are looking to detox their body. It is very important for improving our health. Since the advent of many technologies has also given birth to pollution, our body is suffering from increased amount of toxins in the body. These toxins slow down the processes in our body. One of the most important organs for detoxification is our colons.
    How can Acai berry help as a colon cleansing detox?
    Acai are high in fibers. These fibers are helpful in fighting off the toxins in your body. Fibers, together with high amounts of anti- oxidants would be form a battle system from inside. These can boost your immune system while fighting off the toxins that are already inside your body. Your colon will be cleansed with either berry extracts or other antioxidant compounds found in berry pills. These berry pills also formed a formidable ally with other anti-oxidant-rich wonders to give you a total detox process that would definitely change your life.
    How can a colon cleansing detox improve the body’s processes? And can it do for you?
    Colon cleanse detox can improve the body’s digestive system by flushing out the toxins. These toxins hamper your body’s ability to absorb the important nutrients of the food you ate. When these nutrients are absorbed efficiently, the body will naturally feel more energized. When you feel more energized, there are more things that you can do without feeling tired. You can even start a weight loss exercise program without ever feeling weak. All because of including berry into your diet. As a matter of fact, with the simple colon cleanse detox process, you would already start losing those the extra pounds. From Acai, you would already be able to lose weight and be healthier by detoxifying.

    Because of all the things we eat and the stress we get every day, we need to look after our internal organs, especially our colon. Our colon suffers the most as it stores all the remaining buildup of dirt we get from the foods that are not properly excreted.
    Many photos show that after some time, the colon would have some buildup of some mucous substance that have accumulated through time. This gel substance would be the bad things that have gotten stuck to the corners and the lining of the colon. They often become hard as time passes by. This is why we have to make sure that we make the effort to take them out.
    We need to be proactive and do something about it. If they stay in our body for a long time, we could feel the effects of it as they would wreak havoc to our body. The toxic matter would go back into our body and we can feel sluggish and very tired. We can get recurring headaches as a result of this. Because of this, we need to make sure that we regularly undergo colon cleanse.
    After undergoing a colon cleanse, the cleanse photos will show a better looking colon with not much buildup. However you cannot expect a miracle to happen overnight. You need to work on it regularly. You cannot expect one colon cleanse to eliminate all the waste that has accumulated over the many years you have been munching on chips and pizza. You need to work on it regularly.
    When can you expect result?
    You can start with an initial round of colon cleanse of three days during the first month. That way you will give your body ample time to get used to how it would feel like cleansing as you might experience some side effects as your toxins are being eliminated. You will definitely feel better after this. The next month you do it, you can increase the colon cleanse to five days. That way you will get more dirt out of your system.
    The next time you can go on seven to ten days. This way you will really be able to reap the benefits of the whole colon cleanse. Some people like to even fast when they do colon cleansing so that their system will be relatively empty which would allow the colon cleansing to be even more thorough as the dirt that will be eliminated will be the ones stuck at the lining of the colon.

    Many people go crazy on keeping their bodies as clean as possible without realizing that it is very much important to clean the inside as well. Our body functions continuously everyday but most of the time we can’t even spend a day on having the inside of our body cleansed. Whenever we take for granted the building up of toxins on our colons, for example, there comes along trouble in our health and our digestive system. This is why it is so important to cleanse your colon. Read along these colon cleanse information that can be beneficial to you.
    Colon can affect the other organs

    Yes, it is so possible that if your colon is clogged up, the liver will not function properly. In turn, it will go along with a domino effect. If the liver is not functioning properly, the kidney might also be concerned. If the kidney persists on being incapable of doing its job, it will most likely lead to more severe situations that will put your entire health and your system at risk. Thus, it is so important, as it is recommended by doctors, to cleanse your colon.
    Many degenerative diseases start at the digestive tract

    It is recommended by doctors to have bowel movement every day to avoid degenerative diseases. Imagine your colon storing rotting foods for days. When your body is compelled to store foods that are rotting already, more toxins are reabsorbed by the blood due to the colon walls. If several amounts of these toxins are running to your blood, there is a tendency that there will be inflammation that might cause degenerative diseases.
    Solution You Can Do

    You might ask a question like: “How do I cleanse my colon?” and might be interested on solutions that you can do. Yes, there are ways, and the most essential thing to do is to eat the proper food. It may sound simple but having a kind of diet that will get rid of your intake of fast foods or processed foods may be difficult for you. Eating the right food is so beneficial. However, you need to have focus on eating natural fruits and vegetables and hydrate yourself with water every day. A colon cleanse does not only end up on giving you the boost factor but will also add up years to your life. Risks of having illness on the digestive system can be reduced.

    Detox specialists will always tell their clients that the best type of medicine is no medicine at all. detox is much more beneficial and can cleanse the body of all harsh chemicals and destructive preservatives. There are a variety of cleanses an individual can perform such as a master cleanse, colon cleansing, candida albican cleanse, ion cleanse, liver gallbladder cleanse, herbal cleanse, and parasite cleansing.

    People are always looking for the best cleanse on the market. What they may not know is that a lot of the cleanses do not work, are only short term until the body builds up toxins again, or they have side effects which can make a person suffer, or be uncomfortable. Some cleanses can be extremely expensive and can cause other complications. Cleanses are supposed to clean out the colon, or other organs, without having any dramatic side effects. A cleanse or detox should not rid the body of essential vitamins that people need for healthy body functioning and energy levels.

    The colon cleanse is the cleaning out of the colon, intestines and bowel. When the colon becomes blocked or built up with toxins, it can lead to painful complications, cramping, and constipation. Many individuals turn to medical procedures because their doctor suggests it. There are many other alternatives to having any type of invasive procedure performed.

    There are also other ways to detox the body such as the Ion foot detoxification. This type of body cleansing is where the toxins come out from the base of the feet. A person sits down with their feet in warm water and the toxins flow out through the body. This happens because the ions located within the water attract the toxins that remain in the body. This method is not used that often when it comes to detoxing, but it does have some comforting benefits. Some herbal methods are used along with harsh chemicals, or some herbs that speed up the heart rate which can lead to other complications, loss of breath, and an increase in anxiety. As with any new medication, a herbal remedy or detox method should be discussed with a general practitioner or nutritionist before experimenting.

    Herbal cleansing is the most inexpensive method of detoxing. It is widely recognized and many individuals have improved their general health with this type of cleanse. Herbal remedies and methods of detoxing usually have no side effects, are non-toxic in any shape or form, and provide a natural way of bringing the body back to optimal health.

    The best way to cleanse and perform a detox is to use herbal methods. A herbal detox can help the body, and even improve energy levels, as well as eating patterns. Herbal remedies rarely have any side effects. Toxinout by Dr. Natura is 100% natural, effective and extremely safe for users. It safely removes metals in the body such as mercury and lead. It also provides a detox on the liver, blood, kidney and other important organs. It is a natural method that is also 100% vegetarian and it provides the whole body with a detox and cleanse.

    Colon therapy is a type of therapy that actually has a lot of different names. A lot of people call it colon irrigation, and others call it colon hydrotherapy. Other names include enema irrigation and/or coffee enemas. Although, they are all done the same way, and that is with water or another liquid substance. So what is therapy, and what does it do? Pretty much, therapy is where they take gallons of water and they move it through your colon. This is done with a special machine. However, even though this is used the most, it is not the only thing that is used. Other solutions and substances (like coffee) are sometimes passed though the colon as well. Either way you look at it, it’s the clearing of the intestines (or the colon) to get rid of the stuff that is stuck in there.

    For the most part, there is no scientific evidence that support that this kind of therapy can treat cancer. However, it can help to keep the colon clean. There are some side effects that can go with detox therapy. In fact, one of the most common is infection, which can lead to death. Although there are alternative therapy options out there, most people like the colon hydrotherapy. It is pretty much considered nothing more than a detoxification method to remove the accumulated waste from your colon. These are usually the kinds of things that you would worry about as you get older. People who get old usually lose the digestive enzymes in their stomach. This causes things that should not get through to get to the colon.

    Whenever you use therapy you are going to be given a colon therapy chart. Although this can mean many things, usually a chart is the chart that is used to keep up with your therapy. So pretty much, this leaves one question left and that is, how is it done? What happens is a plastic tube is inserted into your rectum and into the colon area. The machine at that point is going to send large amounts of water (or liquid into your intestines). They normally do up to 20 gallons of water. Of course, if you are just cleaning the rectum, then they use about a quart of fluid. After the colon is full of water, the therapist is going to massage the abdomen. This is going to help remove all of the waste that is stuck on the colon walls. After that, the water and the waste are going to be carried out through a different tube. Most of the time, this is done a few times. Colon therapy usually takes about an hour to do. After it is all removed, you are going to notice a difference in the way that you feel. You are also going to notice that you have also decreased in weight. After all, the junk you had been carrying around is all gone. Some people support detoxification, and some do not. You should talk to your doctor to see if it is right for you or not.

    A lot of people are now worried about keeping their body health. A long time ago, it was not something that a lot of people would worry about. However, now people are all about health and detoxifying their body. The great nows is there are a lot of different detoxification products that you can use to do this. detoxification can actually mean a lot of different things. For example, you can choose to do natural detoxification, or you can use an irrigation system to detoxify your body. Either way you choose to go, all of these detoxification products are doing the same thing. They are cleansing your body of stuff that it does not need. In fact, the best kind of detoxification is to do a colon cleansing.

    The reason why the colon is the best place to start is for the simple fact that the colon is the part of the body that deals with all of our waste. From time to time, things start to get stuck in their and your body starts to get backed up. This means that you have to go through and detoxify your body. Now, a good way to go about doing this is to do a natural detoxification. This can be done in one of two ways. First of all, you can take different natural pills that can help you with your detoxification. Of course, the pills have to be 100% natural to count. The second way that you can go about doing this is to change up your diet. Changing up your diet is something that a lot of people have to do. Most of us eat too many fast food items and not enough home cooked meals. This does not mean that you can not have fired foods, but you do need to have your fruits and vegetables as well. In fact, one of the best natural things that you can have for your body is, of course, fiber. When you have a lot of fiber in your diet, you are going to be able to pass stools a lot easier.

    Of course, this is not the only kind of detoxification products out there on the market. You can also choose to use a few products that are not actually natural, but they do the job just fine. For example, a lot of people like to use irrigation systems. These are systems that you use to actually pump water into your colon. This warm water then breaks up the waste that is attached to the colon. Then from there, the water is drained back out by way of a tube, and the waste goes with it. As you can image, this is not the best feeling in the world. However, it is one of the quickest ways to get the job done. Not only that, but it is pretty safe as well. People have been doing this for a long time, and it has been working just fine. Choosing the right method for you could be different from what other people choose to do, and that is fine.

    One of the best ways to deal with colon pain is to cure whatever is causing the pain. The problem is, there are a lot of things that can cause pain. The most common thing that causes it, however, is blockage. This is where something is keeping you from using the bathroom. When this happens, there are a number of things that could be wrong. No matter what is wrong, the main thing that you need to do is be able to use the bathroom. Today we are going to talk about a few different ways that you can go about using the bathroom. In the end, you will be able to find the way that is going to work for you the best. After all, not all of the same ways work for all people. Most of the time, you have to find something that works for you. When you can do that, then you do not have to worry about trying a whole lot of different things. You just have to find that one thing that works.

    Colon pain is not something that is fun to have. So the quicker that you can get over it, the better. A good natural way to help with pain is to eat things that are naturally good for you. Things like fruits and vegetables can help to get you unblocked because of all the fiber they have in them. Not only that, but you may want to take some lemon peel. You can buy lemon peel extracts from stores or you can use some in your food. The main thing to note is that lemon peel does a lot for your body. Not only does it help with unblocking you and getting you to use the bathroom, but it also helps with upset stomachs. Some studies even show that lemon peel can help to fight off infections in the body as well. This is great for the colon area.

    Another great way to fight off infections in the colon, which could be the cause of your colon pain, is to eat garlic. Now, there are a lot of different ways that you can go about eating garlic. The best way is just to add it naturally to your food. Some people like to chop up a garlic clove and add it into their milk. Then you warm up the milk and drink it while it is hot. A lot of people seem to agree that it is not the best combo in the world, but it does get the job done. It is going to make your colon feel better and could even unblock you.

    If worst comes to worst, then you better go see your doctor. They can help you get everything back under control and get your colon back to like-new condition. After all, there could be something else that is causing your pain. It could be more than just blockage or an infection. There could be a really bad inflammation that herbs will not cure. Although, there are a few herbs that will help with inflammation in the colon area when taken.

    There are a lot of ways to go about doing detox for your colon. You can take pills, you can use irrigation, you can even have surgery. However, the best way to go about doing a detox is to actually just do a detox diet. Most of the time, this takes only one weekend to do, and it is good to do about once a year. Whenever you do these detox diets, you are going to notice that your body feels better and you feel better as a whole. Today we are going to talk about the kinds of things you should eat during your detox diet, and then we are going to talk about the things that you should keep eating so that you can keep a detox colon all year around! A lot of people want to stay healthy nowadays, and doing a detox is one of the best ways. After all, your colon is what deals with all of that kind of stuff in your body. It’s easy to see how it can be hard to keep it clean, but if you follow a very good diet plan, then it does not have to be hard.

    First of all, when you choose to do a detox diet, you need to set aside one weekend. During this weekend, you are not going to get to eat many things that you may want to eat. However, in the end, you are going to be doing your body a big favor. One the first nights of the diet, you are going to want to eat a salad. It is best if you do not cover the salad in dressing. The next morning, you are going to want to drink juice. Keep in mind that juice is what you are going to be drinking for pretty much the whole day. If you start to get hungry, then you drink more juice. Then that night, you are going to eat a miso soup. This is a Japanese dish! With that soup you can have some brow rice or some fresh vegetables. This is really going to help clean out your system. However, after doing this over the weekend, you are going to want to keep your body looking good. In that case, you are going to want to start eating right all the time.

    Now, you can not live off of juice and soup your whole life, so you have to be able to eat other things. That is fine, however, you do have to make sure that you get enough fiber in your diet. You can do that by simply eating fresh vegetables, as well as fresh fruits. Although a lot of people do not like it, try not to peel your apples and things like that before you eat them. The skin of the apple has a lot of the fiber that you want. Also, you have to be sure to drink a lot of water. Most people already know that water is very good for you, but some people do not know just how good it is for you.

    There are a lot of parts that go to your colon, and there are problems that can happen in any one of these spots. However, one of the most common places that people seem to have problems with in their colon is their descending colon. So what is your descending colon, and where can you find it? First of all, you need to know how to locate your colon to understand any of this. The start of your colon is on your right side, down by your pelvic bone. From there, work your way up to the start of your rib cage on the right side. This would be the first section of your colon. Then from the right rib cage, work your way over to your left rib cage. This area is the middle part of your colon. Last, but not least, work your way from the left rib cage down the left side of your pelvic bone. This is your descending colon.

    So you may not think that the descending colon would be the hardest to backup, because it has gravity working with it. However, that is not the case. Most of the time, when your colon muscles are not working right, you will have a problem in your colon leading up. However, when you are having a problem in your descending colon, that means that you are having a problem with something blocking the way. A lot of times, things that are blocking the way are infections or some kind of inflammation in your colon wall. This is a hard problem to deal with, because you never now what could be causing the inflammation. Most of the time, it is an infection, and it’s something that has to be dealt with.

    If it is an infection that you are dealing with, then there are a few things that you have to watch out for. First of all, what is causing the infection, and second of all, how to get your descending colon unblocked. The best way to do this is with colon cleansing pills. A lot of the pills come with different herbs that have anti inflammation properties to them. So what does that mean for you? Well, this means that it can help to get your fecal matter flowing again, because it is going to bring down the inflammation. Now, this could be good,but what if the inflammation comes back? Well, this is where you need to eat more fresh garlic. This is something that is easy to cook with and actually has some good properties to it that help fight of infections in the body, including in the colon.

    Overall, you can tell how important it is to keep your colon clean. The cleaner that you keep it, the easiest it is to keep from having these problems. If you try some of these suggestions and they do not work, then it could be a good idea to go see a doctor. After all, no one wants to stay backed up forever!

    This is really good! I have often wondered the differences between natural and intrusive colon cleansing and also what the best colon cleanse for me is. I am definitely behind your philosophy that natural colon cleansing with herbs and spices, as well as detox foods is the best way for me and probably most people.
