Intestinal Health: Problems and Remedies

http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg

You may have heard that life and death, sickness and disease start in the colon. To physically heal the human body of any degenerative disease, you must place emphasis on cleansing first and foremost, and if necessary, repairing.

A selection of diseases and challenges of the colon include:
  • Colitis
  • Colon cancer
  • Diverticulitis
  • Diverticulosis
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Prolapsed colon
  • Constipation
There are many ways to cleanse and repair the colon and there are also many helpful tools that can help you to do such.


Nothing sabotages the health of the colon like the Standard American Diet, which is greatly acid-forming and thus mucus-forming. It is full of unhealthy and toxic meat and dairy products. Refined grains and starches are just as harmful, creating a gluey and paste-like substance that sticks to the colon's walls.

The body cannot digest meat (especially cooked meat) no matter what you believe or no matter what you have been told or heard. Cooked or process meat lacks enzymes unlike plants and fruits that are loaded with enzymes (life force) and which unlike meat, dairy products, and refined grains and starches - promote peristalsis (bowel movement).



When we consume meat, dairy products, refined grains/starches, and processed foods - the aftermath of these things sit in our colons and rot and putrefy. The stench will sometimes seep through the pores of the skin (which is why some people simply smell bad regardless of what they do, e.g. bathe, shower, wear perfume/cologne etc.).

Bad breath (halitosis) generally is the result of a toxic, compacted, and polluted colon, which in turn results from a diet based on processed animal fats and protein (meat and dairy) and other processed and cooked food. 


Diseases of the Colon

The human colon is nearly 30 feet long (27 feet to be exact). With a colon this long, clearly humans are not meant to consume animal flesh. It takes about four days for the human body to digest (to the best of its ability) animal flesh or meat compared to only a few hours to digest (and eliminate) fruits and plants.

When we don't take care of our colon, a host of colon-specific pathologies may result, i.e., colon or colorectal cancer, colitis, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, colon stasis (constipation), colic, inflammatory bowel disease, and coloptosis to name a few, but also certain medical procedures may also need to be performed (if you are into allopathic medicine), procedures such as colonoscopy, colosigmoidoscopy, colostomy, and colonic fistula.

Colorectal Cancer

A malignant neoplastic disease of the large intestine, characterized by melena, a change in bowel habits, and the passing of blood. Malignant tumors of the large bowel usually occur after age 50, are slightly more frequent in women than in men, and are almost as common lung cancer in the United States.

The high incidence of colorectal cancer in the western world, as contrasted with the low incidence in Japan and in rural Africa, suggests that a diet high in refined carbohydrates and beef and low in roughage may be a causative factor.

The risk of large bowel cancer is increased in chronic ulcerative colitis, in diverticulosis, in villous adenomas, and especially in familial polyposos of the colon.

Most lesions of the large bowel are adenocarcinomas; one half arise in the rectum, one fifth in the sigmoid colon, approximately one sixth in the cecum and ascending colon, and the rest in other sites. Rectal tumors may cause pain, bleeding, and a feeling of incomplete evacuation; they metastasize slowly through lymphatic channels and veins, and occasionally prolapse through the anus. Mosbys supra, p. 279

One of the biggest causative factors of colorectal cancer is meat consumption, especially red meat. Colorectal cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in the U.S. According to the C.D.C. (Center For Disease Control) in 2006, 70,270 men and 68,857 women were diagnosed with colorectal cancer. This same year, 26,801 men and 26,395 women died from colorectal cancer.

Colitis

Colitis is an inflammatory condition of the large intestine, either one of the episodic, functional, irritable bowel syndromes or one of the more serious chronic, progressive, inflammatory bowel diseases.

Irritable bowel syndrome is characterized by bouts of colicky pain and diarrhea or constipation, often resulting from emotional stress. Because individuals with colitis may be irritated by different substances, the diet is individualized to avoid known irritants. Kinds of irritable bowel syndrome are splastic colon and mucous colitis. Inflammatory bowel disease is characterized by abscess formation, severe diarrhea, bleeding, and ulceration of the mucosa of the intestine. Weight loss and pain are significant. Kinds of inflammatory bowel disease include Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Mosby's supra, p. 277

Anytime you have the prefix "itis" you are dealing with inflammation and when there is inflammation, there is unhealthy mucus, and when there is unhealthy mucus, there is acidosis or excess acid and excess acid is the result of consuming acidic products, i.e. animals fats and proteins (meat and dairy products) but also refined carbohydrates: starches, grains.

Diarrhea

Diarrhea is the frequent passage of loose, watery stools, generally as the result of increased motility in the colon.

When diarrhea is present, the body (intestinal tract) is quickly attempting to evacuate something. Diarrhea steals water (fluid) from the tissues of the body and thus sodium content in the body is lost. It is very important that when diarrhea is present that you replace sodium and electrolytes. Sea salt is a great source of natural sodium as well as celery (celery juice). You can find an electrolyte solution (e.g. Trace Minerals Electrolytes) on the shelves of good health food stores.


Colic

According to Mosby's Medical Dictionary, colic is a sharp visceral pain resulting from torsion, obstruction, or smooth muscle spasm of a hollow or tubular organ. For many infants, grains are a great cause of colic. Infants should not be fed grains for the first two years of life. Their little digestive systems cannot handle grains. The same applies to honey. Honey should not be given for the first two years of life.

Ulcerative colitis

A chronic, episodic, inflammatory disease of the large intestine and rectum, characterized by profuse watery diarrhea containing varying amounts of blood, mucus, and pus. Also known as Crohn's disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Mosby's supra, p. 1208

Diverticulitis

Diverticula are pouch-like herniations in the wall of a tubular organ, such as the intestine or colon. When fecal matter penetrates thin-walled diverticula, it can cause inflammation and abscess formation in the tissues surrounding the colon. With repeated inflammation, the lumen of the colon narrows and may become obstructed. During periods of inflammation, the patient will experience crampy pain, particularly over the sigmoid colon, fever, and leukocytosis. Mosby's supra, p. 382

Diverticulosis

The presence of pouchlike herniations through the muscular layer of the colon, particularly the sigmoid colon. Diverticulosis affects increasing numbers of people over 50 years of age and may be the result of the modern, highly refined, low-residue diet. Most patients with this condition have few symptoms except for occasional bleeding from the rectum. An increase in the dietary fiber can aid in propelling the feces through the colon. Hemorrhage from bleeding diverticula can become quite severe. Diverticulosis may lead to diverticulitis. Mosby's supra, p. 382

Hemorrhoid

A variscosity in the lower rectum or anus caused by congestion in the veins of the hemorrhoidal plexus. Mosby's supra, p. 559

Hemorrhoids result when there is excessive straining during bowel movement in order to propel the feces from the rectum through the anus. This is clearly the result of a high meat, dairy, and other processed foods diet greatly low or lacking in roughage or dietary fiber.

This is why consuming enzymatic foods are a must because enzymes help to stimulate peristalsis. Enzymatic foods are living foods and include fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts (and some grains). Raw foods (fruits, nuts/seeds, and veggies) are loaded with enzymes!

If you are straining while on the toilet, you're constipated. If you are bleeding from the rectum, chances are you have ulcerative colitis or diverticulosis, and in the worse case scenario, perhaps colorectal cancer.

Coloproctitis

An inflammation of both the colon and rectum. Also called colorectitis. Mosby's supra, p. 279

This disease clearly suggests that both colon and rectum are inundated with mucus, usually resulting from an acid-forming diet.

Coloptosis

The prolapse or downward displacement of the colon. Mosby's supra, p. 279

Prolapse of the colon (coloptosis) is very common nowadays considering how impacted people are, especially obese people, and how gravity is still on the scene pulling on our organs, and the colon is no exception here.

Intestinal Parasites and Worms

Parasite and worm infestation could also be the cause of colon diseases and disorders, especially if you consume large concentrations of meat. Known worms of the intestines include intestinal pinworms and tape worms.

Several species of tapeworms, such as Taenia saginata (beef tapeworm), Taenia solium (pork tapeworm), and Diphyllobothrium latum (fish tapeworm) can cause infection in people.

Parasite and worm infestation is no joke. These little creepy critters can really sabotage your health. It is imperative that people, especially those who consume meat, perform at least one major parasite and worm cleanse (e.g. Dherbs.com Parasite and Worm Cleanse) a year.

The Value of Villi

One of the detriments of a compacted and toxic colon full of hardened fecal matter is that the villi are obstructed. These little shaggy hairs that stick out from the surface of the small intestine absorb nutrients (i.e. vitamins and minerals) from the foods we consume (if we are in fact consuming real food which would naturally contain nutrients such as vitamins and minerals).

When the colon is impacted, the villi are obstructed from its designed function. Think about it, even if we are eating something that does contain nutrition (as an exception to what we commonly eat), if the colon walls are impacted with hardened fecal matter, no nutrition will be absorbed via the villi.

When we think about the colon, we also have to think about the villi.

Intestinal Ecology

We must also think about the state of our good bacteria that resides in our colon.

A toxic and impacted colon is probably going to have an imbalance of good and bad bacteria thus leading to yeast infection. A healthy colon is going to have a balanced ratio of good bacteria (probiotics) and bad bacteria, or healthy bacteria and unhealthy bacteria.

You shouldn't just be concerned with probiotics (acidophilus) after having a colonic performed, but all the time. Intestinal ecology is very important! Yeast infections are not just limited to the vagina of females, but also the blood and the intestines. So colon or intestinal health also takes into consideration the ratio of good and bad bacteria.

Natural Remedies For Intestinal Diseases and Disorders

Weekly enemas
are very helpful for keeping the rectum clean, healthy, and evacuated. These are highly recommended by us at Dherbs.com. Enemas can be performed in the comfort of your own home (bathroom). Enemas are best performed in the morning or in the evening time. Mornings are more ideal in my personal opinion. You can add liquid chlorophyll to your enema water (1-2 ounces), 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide (half an ounce), and/or liquid bentonite clay (1 ounce). For more information on enemas, please read our article "Enemas" in the "articles" section.

Colonics
are even better than enemas. Colonics allow the entire colon to be flushed of toxins, pollutants, old fecal debris, parasites and worms, etc. Colonics can be performed weekly or monthly or perhaps every 3 months. To learn more about colonics, please read our article Colonics in the articles section.

Carnelian water
is a concoction of crystal energy (vibration) and water, basically an elixir. There is no better stone (crystal) to aid in stomach and intestinal complaints than carnelian. This stone can provide fast-acting results when placed directly on the tummy. This is a most ideal stone for females and can be used for stomach complaints as well as female complaints, e.g. abdominal cramping and/or spasms (perhaps during that time of the month). The bigger the piece of Carnelian, the better!

Daily anti-gravity exercise, in addition to colonics and enemas, is a great natural remedy for coloptosis.

Other great exercises that can help to keep your colon optimally healthy and functioning include yoga, Tai chi, and deep breathing to name a few.

Rubbing the belly with warm natural oil (coconut, olive, caster) in a circular motion will help to stimulate the colon and thus bowel movement. This is great to do before performing an enema. Oil in a glass container can be warmed up with hot water (in a sink). Run hot water from the faucet on the bottle for a few minutes and/or let the bottle sit or float in a sink full of hot water for a few minutes (10-15 minutes).

If you follow the foregoing information, you won't need to take harmful and addictive man-made pharmaceutical drugs such as Ex-lax, Dulc-lax, Kaopectate, Milk of Magnesia, and Pepto-Bismol which all pollute and toxify the liver and blood; nor will you have to undergo or receive a colonoscopy, colostomy, and/or colonic fistula.

By all means, you'd be wise to avoid bulk-forming laxatives, lubricants, stool softeners, saline laxatives, stimulant laxatives and combination medicines. They do harm in the human body and they never knock out the root cause of the problem. Drugs only masquerade!

Dietary Intervention

Diet, a bad or poor one, can really sabotage health, especially colon health. One of the most harmful things a person can do is eat three square meals per day, especially if those three square meals contain or include meat and dairy products.

Did you know that if you eat three meals per day you should be having three bowel movements per day? You should have a bowel movement for every meal you eat and if you don't, something is wrong.

The best area to start in as far as healing from intestinal diseases and disorders is that of diet. Cut out or greatly cut back on consumption of animal derived products (such as meat and dairy products).

Eat plenty of raw foods [fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts] as they are enzymatic and fiber-rich, which greatly helps with peristalsis (bowel movement).

Eat a big green leafy salad every day or at least 3-4 days per week. This is a great roughage provider. Salad (as other greens and veggies) will sweep the walls of the colon helping to maintain the health and wellbeing of the intestinal tract.

Prunes and figs are great foods and aids for maintaining the health of the colon and ensuring consistent bowel movement. These are highly recommended, perhaps as snack foods.

Prune juice and/or plum juice are considered liquid plumbers. These will get a clogged colon moving again in a short period of time. A cup or half a cup nightly should suffice.

Eliminate refined and processed foods from your diet as much as possible. Refrain from eating a lot of cooked foods. The best-cooked and processed foods to consume are vegan in nature.

Drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice daily (about 4-8 ounces). Invest in a good juicer (i.e. Jack Lalane's brand, c. $150 in price).

The best water to drink while performing any cleanse (including a colon cleanse) is hands down alkaline water. If you can't find alkaline water, your next best choices are distilled water and/or spring water. Drink 6-10 glasses of water daily. Water helps keep the body in general and the colon in particular, lubricated.

Aloe vera juice is a great beverage to assist with maintenance of the intestinal tract. It is especially helpful when there are ulcers present, including ulcerative colitis. It is also helpful for coloproctitis. Aloe vera juice is an intestinal tonic.

Colonically Beneficial Herbs

There are a plethora of beneficial therapeutic herbs that help cleanse, repair, tone, fortify, and strengthen the intestinal tract. Laxative (as well as aperient and cathartic) herbs are very important as they help stimulate peristalsis and evacuate the bowels.

Good laxative herbs include Senna Leaf (and Pods), Cascara Sagrada, Buckthorn, Glucomannan, Bilwa, Bibitaki, Rhubarb, Aloe Vera (resin), Jalap Root, Musta, and Mandrake. These herbs are great for the most severe and stubborn colon problems, especially constipation.

Good colon conditioning herbs include Black Walnut Hull, Chamomile, Goldenseal Root, and Licorice root. These herbs help cleanse and tone the colon.

Good mucous-membrane soothing (mucilaginous) herbs include Slippery Elm Bark, Irish Moss, Agar Agar, Acacia Gum, and Marshmallow. These herbs help soothe an inflamed and irritated colon.

Good carminative and antispasmodic herbs include Fennel Seed, Anise Seed, Cardamom Seed, Caraway Seed, Cinnamon bark, and Ginger
root. These herbs help calm an upset stomach and counteract indigestion as well as flatulence (gas).

Good fiberous herbs include Pamita, Psyllium Husk, Fennel Seed, Apple Pectin, and vegetable cellulose (technically not an herb). These herbs provide dietary fiber that sweep the walls of the colon and aid in the formation of bulky stools.

To help rid the body of parasites and worms, consume anthelmintic and vermifuge herbs such as Peachtree Bark, Wormwood, Tansy, Betel Nut, Southernwood, Epazote, Pumpkin Seed, Worm Seed, Black Seed, Male Fern and Pink Root.

Senna is a great herb that not only help evacuate the bowels of hardened and stubborn fecal matter but also helps to kill intestinal worms and parasites in the intestines.

To further help get rid of parasites and worms in the intestinal tract, drink pomegranate juice (4 ounces daily for a specific duration or period of time).

In addition to pomegranate juice, consume one tablespoon of olive oil and/or castor oil daily (for a certain period of time) as these oils not only lubricate the colon, but also smother and kill worms and parasites in the colon, especially pinworms.

    Q: My son was diagnosed with Stevens Johnson Syndrome. Jan. 2007, 10-day hospital stay,. Jan 2008, 8-day stay. This is terrible, more like biological experiment results put in place a long time ago. I’ve been thinking, and feeling, he needed to be detoxified. I am not knowledgeable on these toxic, viral, bacteria, fungus, whatever this thing is. I just don't understand it. The doctors don’t either. Where does it come from? When did it come? My Son is 16 years, trying to finish school. I will continue praying and seeking answers. I know I want to help him to be, and stay safe from the diseases, syndromes, pharmaceutical medications, misinformation, streets, and bad association. Thank You

    A:

    "Stevens-Johnson Syndrome" Stevens-Johnson Disease takes its name from two doctors, Albert M. Stevens, American pediatrician, b. 1884; and F.C. Johnson, an American physician, b. 1894. What is Stevens-Johnson syndrome? Stevens-Johnson syndrome is medically defined as: “A serious, sometimes fatal inflammatory disease affecting children and young adults. It is characterized by the acute onset of fever, bullae on the skin, and ulcers on the mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia. Pneumonia, pain in the joints, and prostration are common. A complication may be perforation of the cornea. The syndrome may be an allergic reaction to certain drugs, or it may follow pregnancy, herpes virus I, or other infection. See also erythema multiforme.†– Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 1117 Okay, now to break things down in layman’s term for purposes of clear and simple understanding. So-called Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a medical term applied to a case of toxicity whereby the blood and lymph fluids are greatly polluted and toxic and whereby there is a large presence of MUCUS in the body (specifically the mucous membranes, the internal skin), which causes INFLAMMATION! When the skin is inflamed, mucus (thick, yellowish colored mucus) is usually the culprit. There are two kinds of mucus: bad mucus which is yellow-greenish in color, thick, stubborn and very sticky; and, good mucus, “a viscous, slippery secretion of the mucous membranes and glands, containing mucin, white blood cells, water, inorganic salts, and exfoliated cells.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 All skin conditions are blood disorders. The skin always manifests the condition of the blood. External skin problems also denote internal skin problems and what is the external skin? Answer: The mucous membranes! Mucous membrane is medically defined as: “any of four major kinds of thin sheets of tissue that cover or line various parts of the body. Mucous membranes line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, such as the lining of the mouth, the digestive tube, the respiratory passages, and the genitourinary tract. It consists of a surface of epithelial tissue covering a deeper later of connective tissue and protects the underlying structure, secretes mucus, and absorbs water, salts and other solutes. Compare serous membrane, skin, synovial membrane.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 Now, WHOOMP, There it is! Clearly, Stevens-Johnson syndrome is an adverse condition of the mucous membranes whereby the mucous membranes are inflamed (mucositis) due to an over-acidic condition (or acidosis). Now, in the definition of mucous membranes supra, it states the mucous membranes covers certain parts of the body and line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, i.e. mouth, digestive tube, respiratory passage, and genitourinary tract. Now in the definition of the syndrome itself supra, where does the syndrome manifest? Did not the definition (of Stevens-Johnson syndrome) say: “…. skin, … mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia?†Yes it did! Are not these body parts, cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside of the body? Yes they are! Well, there you have it! Clearly Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a big medical word (though not that big and/or complex) describing something so basic as a mucus congestion leading to skin inflammation of certain cavities and canals of the body that lead to the outside, i.e. MOUTH (which includes the lips), EYES (which includes the cornea), NASAL PASSAGE (which links to the nose), and GENITALIA. Causes of Stevens-Johnson syndrome Because this syndrome (disease) involves mucus that tie into (or stems from) acidity, we know that the physical manifestation of this disease stems from poor and/or insalubrious diet, one high in acid-forming and mucopurulent so-called foods and beverages, i.e. meat (slaughtered animal flesh), dairy products (cow snot and pus); refined grains (i.e. white bread, white rice, white flour, pastries like cakes, cookies, donuts, etc.) and starches and a host of other so-called foods, as well as soda pop, milk, beer, wine, coffee, cocoa, etc. The greatest culprit of the physical manifestation of this disease is MUCUS from acid-forming foods (DEAD FOODS)! But because diet is involved here, this means the disease degenerative in nature and is 100% REVERSIBLE via change of diet and lifestyle as well as mindset/thought process and attitude. Healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome naturally Like with every other major disease, DETOXIFYING the body is the first external step in healing from this disease. We actually begin the detox process when we begin to eat live, organic, sun-cooked or sun-baked foods, i.e. fruits and vegetables. Therefore, a change to a RAW FOODS and VEGAN-vegetarian diet would be ideal for healing. It would be wise to abstain from consuming all meat, dairy, refined grains, and refined starch products, and all acidic and effervescent beverages (i.e. soda pop, beer, etc.). Drink plenty of water (half gallon to gallon, depending on your body weight). Water helps to dissolve hardened mucus in the body. If you can find alkaline water, drink this water. The best waters are alkaline pH, negative charged, microclustered or structured, and ionic. The best way to get this kind of water is via ionic water machines from Asia. See www.ionizers.org/alkalife.html for more information. Soak daily in hot water (or warm water if you prefer), sea salt (1-2 boxes), and 1 cup 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Soak for at least 30 minutes before you start bathing. Rub your body down (from had to toe) after all baths/soaks and/or showers with Dherbs.Com OZ OIL. This is a miraculous healing oil and one of our best sellers! Our customers rave about this oil. There are plenty of herbs that can assist in the healing of Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Alterative herbs or blood cleansing and purifying herbs, expectorant herbs, and mucilaginous herbs are the ideal herbs here. Good blood-cleansing herbs include Oregon Grape, Pau D’ Arco, Echinacea Root, Manjistha, Goldenseal Root, Burdock Root, Dandelion Root, Ilex, and Yellow Dock Root to name a few. Good mucus-ridding or expectorants herbs include Mullein Leaf, Eucalyptus, Fenugreek Seed, Boneset, Elecampane, Coltsfoot, and Lobelia to name a few. Good mucilaginous herbs include Slippery Elm Bark, Irish Moss, Marshmallow, and Guar Gum to name a few. These herbs should be taken together in a compound or mixture (not every single one of them, in case you can’t obtain all of them, but most of them). Dherbs.Com products that can assist in healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome include FULL BODY DETOX (and CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) for small children), 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE, and 10-DAY SUPREME BLOOD CLEANSE kit. Individual formulas include BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA , LUNGS AND RESPIRATORY FORMULA, MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, ACID BUSTER, KIDNEYS AND BLADDER, EYES FORMULA, ORAL ANTISEPTIC SPRAY, and OZ OIL (used externally but can also be taken internally).

Dherbs.Com is here to assist you in all of the above. We do not have the Answer(s) for you, because the Answer(s) that you require are within YOU and always have been.

    Q: My daughter Heather is 4 yrs. old and is battling Candida. She has been on antibiotics from the age of 2 months till 1 yr. old about 8 times for ear infections. She developed constipation at 7 months, food allergies at 1 yr. and a lot of food intolerances. She also had heartburn and was getting bad rashes around her mouth when she ate. Unfortunately, I did not know about Candida so this went on for a couple of years. Despite my efforts of taking her to every doctor there was, no one could help me. Right now she is on a treatment for Candida, but she is so sensitive, she can't even tolerate a lot of the supplements. Her bowels do not move at all. I have to do enemas everyday to keep them going. Right now I'm having a hard time finding a laxative she can tolerate. I ordered the "Children?s laxative extract" from DHERBS but after 4 days of being on it her bowels still aren't moving. I started colonic therapy sessions for my daughter and we saw parasites come out of her. When I called DHERBS, I was recommended to e-mail you. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    For Candida, please know the antibiotic medication is the present cause of her persisitent candida (yeast infection). Read our article "Candida Albicans." She needs anti-fungal herbs, not antibiotic medication. These are harming her body.

    The child is very acidic and this may be due to her diet (what you are feeding the child).

    Have your child perform the Children's Detox for starters. A basic cleanse is greatly needed!

    To target the Candida, make your child a tea consisting of Pau' D Arco. Let the tea cool down and add maple syrup (or agave nectar) and a little lemon. Let the child drink this sweetened tea throughout the day (even as a cold beverage).

    Bathe the child in warm water and sea salt (1 box per bath). Add 5-6 drops of tea tree oil to each bath as well. Let the child soak in the water for 30-60 minutes. This bath is very alkalizing (which counteracts acidity).

    Because she has parasites, have the child drink pomegranate juice (often) and eat plenty of pumpkin seeds (often).

    For the enemas, make a tea of Dherbs Bowel Mover tea (let cool down). Pour tea into enema bag and perform an enema with the tea as the enema solution. Some days switch off from the tea and just add hydrogen peroxide (half an ounce per enema bag) to the enema solution (distilled water). Hydrogen peroxide breaks down into oxygen which kills parasites. You could even add 30 drops of Oxy-Drops to the enema bag and perform an enema using liquid oxygen.

    It is imperative you put the child on a vegan vegetarian diet a.s.a.p.! Remove all meat and dairy products as well as all refined grains from her diet (as these feed worms and parasites).

    Have the child drink prune juice before going to bed each night. Dilute the juice with water if necessary.

    The child needs to eat a lot of fruits (i.e. plums, apples).

    Continue to give the child Dherbs Children?s laxative extract daily, perhaps in the early evening hours.

    Doing all of the above will cause positive changes in your child's situation. Just remember, drugs won't help her. Read ou article "Herbs vs. Pharmaceutical drugs" on our site.

    Q: Is there such thing as, cleansing too much? From May - July I did a 40 day cleanse. The cleanse was pretty much ridding my diet of refined sugar, flour, alcohol, and animal product for much of the time. I just recently finished the Total Body Cleanse, and will be finishing my series of cleanses with the Total Woman's Cleanse. I personally feel fine, but people keep warning me about over cleansing. Also, bringing up the issue of your body being stripped of the good bacteria (along with the bad). But, I"ve taken probiotic pills (1-2) virtually everyday througout all of my cleanses. Should I be concerned with overcleansing? After this initial year of hard core cleansing, I plan to cleanse maybe once or twice a year. What are you thoughts on probiotics? Like I mentioned, I am taking pills. But I'd like to find foods that provide all that I need so I don't have to take pills.

    A:

    Many people are concerned about what happens to the beneficial intestinal flora after colonics are performed. Personally, I think many people put too much energy into worrying about something so inconsequential. If you're really worried about the beneficial intestinal flora after your colonic, you could always take a few capsules of acidophilus (acidophilus bifidus) or a liquid form of acidophilus (dairy-free, of course). I have never taken an acidophilus product after a colonic. I know Nature and my body too well. I know that my body naturally produces everything sold by man in a bottle, and that is purchased from a health food store, including beneficial flora or bacteria. I simply drink a minimum of 4 ounces of vegetable juice after my colonic sessions. If you're into carrot juice, carrot juice is just as effective as acidophilus in restoring good bacteria in the intestines. Juiced cantaloupe is even better than carrot juice in restoring the beneficial flora. Other natural substances that will help the body to repopulate beneficial flora or good bacteria in the intestines include: Blue Green algae, Spirulina, Chlorella, Irish Moss, Kelp, Bladderwrack, Dulse, Ginger, Cloves, Cayenne, Black Walnut Hull, and Carrot powder. Stop listening to these naysayers and keep doing YOU! You're on the right path!

    Q: I am a massage therapist. During a year long detox with the help of a Naturopath I lost about 40 pounds. However, I could only lose weight while fasting. Though I recognized that I was extremely toxic (very thick, dark menses every 15 days to flu-like symptoms) it seemed that fecal matter was getting "stuck" in the bend of the trans. Colon and disc. Colon. Maintaining the weight losses and good health was difficult in spite of being on a wholesome diet. Digestive enzymes seemed to adversely affect digestion since elimination was slow (once a day). Though enzymes worked well in the stomach, I would only gain weight with the use of enzymes: drinking a gallon of water a day only touched my extreme thirst. I would become lethargic and experience painful menses. Cramps, along with swelling in the ankles. Recently a massage therapist who worked with colon massage laid hands on me and told me that my trans. colon was sitting below my belly button. His massaging in the bend of the trans. colon and the disc. Colon was very uncomfortable. We agreed that massage could help with my situation since I felt great after the massage. I take flaxseed oil, prune juice, probiotics, and cranberry juice everyday and I have been seeing a colon hydro therapist for the past five weeks (once a week) with very good results. Is there a special diet that can help pull the trans colon back into position? I really want to be able to eat wholesome foods and look and feel wholesome at the same time. Thank you for your support.

    A:

    I WOULD RECOMMEND COLON REPAIR. CONSIDER THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE AND IT'S CORRELATING DIET (WHICH COMES WITH THE CLEANSE) AND DRINK MUCH VEGETABLE AND FRUIT JUICE, BUT ESPECIALLY VEGETABLE JUICE. FRUITS SMOOTHIES WILL ALSO HELP REPAIR THE COLON. DRINK 2-4 OUNCES OF ALOE VERA JUICE IN A GLASS OF WATER. PERFORM ANTI-GRAVITY EXERCISES 15-MINUTES PER DAY (HAVE LEGS RAISED HIGHER THAN THE FACE - I.E. LEGS UP AGAINST THE WALL WITH HEAD AND BACK ON THE GROUND). PERFORM ENEMAS AND COLONICS AS WELL. ALL ORGANS ARE REPAIRABLE AND THEREFORE YOU CAN HEAL YOURSELF OF THIS CRISIS. PEACE, OPTIMAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING BE UNTO YOU.

    Q: The reason I have chronic constipation is not because of diet, I eat very healthy, it is because of pain medication (narcotics), that I have to take to be able to stand the excruciating pain I am suffering from 5 spinal surgeries (I have metal rods in my spine from my shoulder blades to my tailbone). In order to have a regular bowel movement every day I take Glyco Lax (a dr.'s RX) 2x a day, plus what I call my "concoction" : I Tbs raw honey, 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp. lemon juice, 1/3 cup fresh ground golden flaxseeds,? 1 tsp. Natural Psyllium Husk Fiber, and put all of that in hot purified water and drink it. I also take a stool softener with stimulant. That is a lot of time consuming work for me, but it does work. You offer several products for regularity, but I don't know which one to order. My Dr. says senna is very harsh and addictive, and your products seems to have a lot of senna in them. I was told it is not good for long term use. Please advise.

    A:

    Yes, we use a lot of senna in our products -- it's a natural herbs and gets the job done. As an herb, the body recognizes its and assimilates it unlike drugs which the body rejects due to not being able to assimilate, but doctors will never tell you this. No wonder why doctors are responsible for legally murdering 1 million people (clients) per year via Iatrogenics (read our article by this same title).

    Q: I am writing you to see if you have any information and remedies for hemorrhoids. I am a Black African male in my 40's. I have changed my diet for the last 3 yrs., no meat, fish, cheese, milk, no dairy, no alcohol, no bread, greatly decreased sugar and salt. I exercise 45 minutes a day, 5 days a week, drink at least 6 glasses of water a day and take lots of vitamin c and a multivitamin but I still have not been able to get rid of the hemorrhoids. Also the hemorrhoids only come out when I have a bowel movement. I have bowel movements twice a day. Also, I have been taking horse chestnut tincture. Is there anything that you know of that might help me to get rid of them. Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Truthfully, thank you very much.

    A:

    Try our 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanser. After the cleanse, take 3 capsules of Hemorrhoid Buster 2-3 times daily. Drink 1 cup of Aloe Vera juice daily.

    Have your read our article of "Hemorrhoids" on our site?

    Q: Hello, I just started my 9th day on the FBC. With the exception of the 2nd day I have really had a bowel movement. I usually only have a bowel movement once a week. Should I be concerned? Will this interfere with the cleansing process?

    A:

    Ready for TMI?

     

    Healthy bowel movements are a marker of good health and naturally part of the bodies detox system. Transit time for food should be a day and a half from mouth to anus. Healthy people have 2-3 bowel movements a day. 1 or less indicates constipation. Once a week is a serious medical concern. Food that hangs around becomes toxic and rots. Colon cancer is of major concern if you are not having at least 1 bowel movement per day. I recommend a salt flush to help aid the removal of built up fecal matter.

     

    To do a salt flush you need:

    1 liter of water purified

    2 teaspoons of sea salt or Himalayan rock salt

     

    Drink on an empty stomach. Best done first thing in the morning when you have an hour or two of free time. It tastes terrible but it works. You will have a flush in about a half hour. You could also add some lemon and tiny amount of maple syrup to the mixture to hide the taste. Do not do the flush and then go out in public. Ha! Give yourself time to get it all out. This can be done every season or when you go a day or two without a bowel movement.

     

    Try to avoid salt the day of and after the flush.  

     

    If you have a dog you will notice that after each time they eat within 15 minutes they will have a bowel movement. That is a sign of a healthy digestive tract. 

     

    A way to check transit time is to eat beets. Note the time of eating the food and when the visible markers of red tinted fecal matter shows up in your toilet bowl. 

     

    I eat a 60-90 percent raw, low fat, high carb vegan diet. It is approximately 4pm where I am and I have already had three bowel movements. I average three a day. 

     

    I also recommend watching this video: http://nutritionfacts.org/video/bowel-movement-frequency/

     

    Hope this helps,

    Q: What can I take if my doctor says I have cancer in the stomach?

    A:

    In re stomach cancer: Consider jumping on the Full Body Detox kit and regimen a.s.a.p. and begin the healing process.

    Consider cutting out all acidic and mucus-forming foods, e.g. meat, dairy products, cooked foods, and all acidic beverages (soda, coffee, liquor, milk, orange juice, etc. and just drink vegetable juice, drink plenty of good water, eat plenty of salad, drink aloe vera juice daily; bathe in hot water with 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide and 1-2 boxes of sea salt; take 1/2 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide in my water (once a day); purchase the Oxy-Drops and put 20 drops in each glass of water. I'd also keep a very optimistic mindset.

    Thank you for your interest!

    Q: What is Acid Indigestion and what should a person do and take to prevent this?

    A:

    Acid indigestion is an excess acid cognition in the stomach. It's excess acid backing up from the stomach area (due to acid-forming foods, i.e. meat, dairy products, refined grains, starches, etc.). To prevent this condition, neutralize the acidity with alkalinity in the form of green foods (green vegetables, green seaweeds) and alkaline substances (i.e. herbs, fruit, vegetables, alkaline water drops, etc.). Eat mostly green foods, fruits and vegetables and the condition will naturally subside.

    Q: On your web site I think you should tell people they have to be vegetarians to be on your program instead of thinking people are going to turn into vegetarians over night, and not only that, u should tell them they r not allowed to eat FOOD. Anyway, since I cant send the stuff back, what?s the best way to use it, should I smoke it, pure it in my drink, what, please tell me something.

    A:

    Beloved, why would I tell people they have to be vegetarian while performing my Full Body Detox? This would be the equivalent of doctors telling their patients they'd have to be "suicidal" to take their drugs, for after all, ALL drugs are poisonous and poison kills; and the funny thing is, people never say anything about it. Like obedient little sheep, they just follow along and take what ever their doctor (Master) says to take, even if it is poison and cannot be naturally found growing in and from Nature.

    And why would I tell people they cannot eat FOOD during my detox when the literature clearly instructs people to eat RAW fruits and vegetables? The question to you would be: what is food? Most Americans don't know what food is. But I clearly elucidate what FOOD is in my latest article "WHAT IS: RAW FOOD" (located under "Articles") which is very informative and which I suggest you read.

    Most people think dead, slaughtered animal flesh (cadaver) and dairy products (cow snot and pus) is FOOD, but food can be assimilated in the body and meat and dairy products cannot, so is meat and dairy really food? Real food does not cause cancer or any other diseases, but helps to prevent cancer and other diseases, unlike meat and dairy products, which causes cancer and many other diseases.

    Food also nourishes and meat and dairy products DON'T nourish and most people think they do because they have been successfully programmed and indoctrinated by their masters (meat and dairy industry; government, etc.). After all, most people don't study pertinent things on their own. They are used to being told, and told lies, at that; and the more people believe the lie(s), the lie becomes accepted as truth.

    Herbs are food, beloved! Fruits and vegetables are food, Beloved! To say one cannot eat food while detoxing would be false and I am not in the business of lying to people for any reason.

    Truly, it is sheer ignorance in our collective false pride that is causing all the problems we experience today, especially in the area of health.

    What can you do with the herbs????? Smoke them????

    Why would you want to smoke herbs, much less anything else? That's not wise, intelligent, or smart! No animal in the wild smokes anything. And I know humans are not like animals, which is why humans should be better off than lower animals, but the latter is not true and there are a plethora of reasons to substantiate why.

    God did not intend for smoke to go into the body. Therefore, smoking goes against God and if a person doesn't believe in God, then smoking goes against human biology and the laws of the body as carbon is automatically expelled from the human body; so why put it back in via smoking or drinking soda pop? Clearly, man (humanity) is at a lost today and needs divine guidance.

    Please forgive my arrogance, ego, or anything else you may feel in response to these words supra. It can be quite difficult and challenging at times helping a people who feel they know it all and who are very ignorant at the same time. Please forgive me. I'm a spiritual man helping people of a lower mundane nature (who are spiritually challenged and which is evidenced in the society at large).

    Americans have a spiritual problem and that spiritual problem is laced in mass and gross IGNORANCE!

    Peace be unto you, Beloved!

Patricia Damery on Biodynamic Farming and Connecting with the Earth

We all are well aware that traditional farming can be less than sustainable. But once we embrace the land and treat it with respect, farming can help the environment, and nurture our souls. That’s why practicing Jungian analyst and author Patricia Damery wrote her book, “Farming Soul: A Tale of Initiation.”

“A few things stirred me to [write the book],” Damery says. First: her candidacy as a Jungian analyst. She entered the training program at a difficult time. “I expected to have a wonderful, nurturing experience and it wasn’t.” Second: she wanted readers to discover how biodynamic farming helped her personally, and how the practice can help the Earth overall.
