I am a foster parent that has a child with severe medical conditions. I ordered this product with the understanding that if her doctor gave the okay then we would proceed. I canceled the product after getting the notification from her doctor that the product was not good for a child that has bowel OBSTRUCTION and a neo bladder constructed from her colon. The Dr. at John Hopkins felt that the contents would provide major discomfort for the child and that the dosage that is recommended is NOT a one size fits all. I called and spoke to the rep at Colon flow and they stated no problem. They provided me a mailing address to return ( empty or used bottles); at my expense and assured me i would not be charged. The company gave you 7 days to receive the product back or they would charge you. Due to a family emergency ( 3rd day after consult with rep we had to leave out of town, the product was not returned within the 7 days and they charged me the 90.00 ( 2 bottles). I called them ( on the 7th day) and they WOULD NOT make any exceptions ...even after i offered to send them the funeral announcement and obituary. THIS COMPANY IS UNETHICAL AND THEY REFERRED BACK TO THE ORIGINAL PHONE INQUIRY AS TO THEIR REASONINGS BEHIND THE CHARGE. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THE ENDORSEMENT OF THIS PRODUCT. HOW CAN YOU PLAN FOR A SUDDEN DEATH...ALL THE REP SAID IS THAT I SHOULD HAVE RETURNED THE PRODUCT WITHIN 7 DAYS . Senna tea ( natural medicinals); you can buy at the store is a GREAT product and you dont have to deal with the over rated ( tv commercial) and over priced product, such as colon flow.

Refund aside, honestly...leave the doctoring to the doctors. The colon, much like the ears, are self cleaning.

The product was not returned within the 7 days.
YOU SHOULD HAVE RETURNED THE PRODUCT WITHIN 7 DAYS.
As Molliewollie said: leave the doctoring to the doctors.

Copied straight from the Colon Flow Website: Colon Flow is made from natural ingredients. However, we recommend you consult a competent health care provider if you are taking prescription medications at the time you would like to start using Colon Flow. Make sure your health care provider is educated in natural products as well as prescription medications.

If your child has severe medical conditions, you should be consulting your doctor first ANYWAY before ordering any kind of product. Regardless of that though, for any consumer: Read your terms BEFORE providing your credit card. It'll make your life that much easier when you're trying to get your "free sample" that doesn't exist.

I agree with everything here. First off, the colon is self cleaning. The advert is scaremongering, telling you how much fecal matter one may be holding. The TV companies should be prosecuted for allowing misleading adverse to be broadcasted. Secondly, there is NO such thing as a free sample. One is already scammed by the shipping and handling!
I never buy products I see on TV unless it's available in local stores.
