The importance of a bowel and colon cleanse cannot be understated. The
bowel and colon’s main functions are the re-absorption of nutrients and water into our bodies and the elimination of toxic wastes through regular bowel movements. Besides the liver, the colon
and bowel is the most important processing center in the body.
The average adult has between 5 and 40 pounds of compacted waste in their colon and bowels, so a good bowel and colon cleanse would be of great benefit to many people. The saying "you are what you eat" is unconditionally true. If you're not eating not 100% organic whole foods (food with no bleach, dye,
preservatives, hormones, steroids,
pesticides, herbicides, GMO, etc.)... you have even more reason to cleanse the bowel and colon.
When the bowel and/or colon gets impacted, problems arise such as constipation, hemorrhoids, diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, colon cancer, and as many as 60 other ailments. The signs that you may need a colon cleanse are there if know what to look for...
Detoxification is the process of clearing toxins from the body or neutralizing or transforming them, and clearing excess mucus and congestion. These toxins come from the DEAD PROCESSED FOOD we eat, PARASITES, pharmaceutical drugs, environmental poisons in our WATER, food, air, clothing, cosmetics, hygiene products, and work environments.
Internally, fats (especially oxidized fats and cholesterol), free radicals, and other irritating molecules act as toxins. Poor digestion, colon sluggishness, reduced liver function, and poor elimination through the kidneys, respiratory tract, and skin all add to increased toxicity.
A real bowel and colon cleanse can take from
a few weeks up to a few months, depending on the toxicity and the size of the person. (A 60 year old, 250 lb. man, who eats read meat, white flour, and sweets is different than a 30 year old 120 lb. woman, who eats all organic!) A good colon cleanse usually is not just a single product. It is rather a procedure that may include the use of many different products, dietary changes, and a few days or weeks of fasting.
A Few Words from the Medical Community...
"up to 90% of diseases are due to improper functioning of the colon....
Of the 22,000 operations that I have
personally performed, I have never found a single normal colon."
- Dr. John Harvey Kellogg
"The heavy mucus coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefaction. The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level. ... Autointoxication is self-poisoning, or slow suicide. Through detoxification, proper nutrition, and administration of supplements, the body can heal itself and maintain optimum health function." Nobel Prize Nominee, Dr. Bernard Jensen, DC, ND, Ph.D. Author, Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management
"Every physician should realize that the
intestinal toxemia (poisons) are the most important primary and contributing causes of many disorders and diseases of the human body." - Gastroenterologist, Dr. Anthony Bassler
"...when the colon becomes burdened with an accumulation of waste material: impacted feces, bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites, and dead cellular material, the result is termed - bowel toxemia. This condition causes inflammation and swelling of the bowel surface, and can lead to a host of other health problems. Normal absorption of nutrients, secretory functions, and normal muscular function of the colon are disrupted. Irregular and inefficient bowel movement is the result, further suppressing recovery and encouraging other problems."
Drew Colins, N.D.
"More than 65 different health challenges are caused by a toxic colon." -
The Royal Society of Medicine of Great Britain
"All maladies are due to the lack of certain food principles, such as mineral salts or vitamins, or to the absence of the normal defenses of the body, such as the natural protective flora. When this occurs, toxic bacteria invade the lower alimentary canal. The poisons thus generated pollute the bloodstream, causing every tissue, gland, and organ of the body to gradually deteriorate and be destroyed." - Sir Arbuthnot Lane MS, FRCS, surgeon for the King of England
“There is no natural death. All deaths that come from so-called natural causes are merely the end point of progressive acid saturation. Many people go so far as to consider that sickness and disease are just a ‘cross’ or an element that God gave them to bear here on this earth. However, if they would take care of their body and cleanse their colon and intestines, their problems would be pretty much eliminated". Dr. George C. Crile, head of the Crile Clinic in Cleveland and one of the world’s greatest surgeons.
Dr. H. J. Bartle found in a study of 50 cases of intestinal toxemia that 72% of those cases had constipation.
Dr. Satterlee found 84% of his patients had constipation when they had intestinal toxemia. This indicates that serious bowel disease is associated with having constipation.
Dr. William Lintz, M.D., successfully treated 472 patients suffering from allergies by cleansing the bowel.
Dr. Allan Eustis, M.D., Professor at Tulane University of Medicine in 1912, cured 121 cases of bronchial asthma by intestinal cleansing.
Dr. D. Rochester, M.D., University of Buffalo School of Medicine in 1906, made the statement that after 23 years of observation, toxemia of gastrointestinal tract origin is the underlying cause of asthma.
Dr. Bassler, M.D. reported that by reducing intestinal toxemia, he had 100% success eliminating cardiac arrhythmia.
Dr. Bainbridge, M.D., stated that "intestinal toxemia is common among the causative factors of so-called functional heart disease".
Dr. Hovel, M.D. stated that “toxemia due to intestinal sepsis is a common cause of increased blood pressure.”
Dr. J. A. Stucky, M.D. stated, “In several hundreds of cases of diseases of the nasal accessory sinuses, middle and internal ear... I have found unmistakable and marked evidence of toxemia of intestinal origin as evidenced by excessive indican in the urine, and when the condition causing this was removed there was marked amelioration or entire relief of the disease.
Dr. C. W. Hawley, M.D., treated many cases of eye strain and disease with success once again by relieving intestinal toxemia.
Dr. Herter, M.D., in 1892, linked intestinal putrefaction to epilepsy in 31 patients. I had one doctor take the Cleanse who had epilepsy. During her cleanse she had her last seizure. Five years later she reported that she has had no more seizures and no other signs of epilepsy. Doctors should really consider the importance of this. What is really happening when we do the Cleanse? It is doing things that are really rather incredible, of which I only know a small portion
Drs. Satterlee and Eldridge reported experience with 518 cases of mental symptoms, including “mental sluggishness, dullness, and stupidity; loss of concentration and/or memory; mental incoordination, irritability, lack of confidence, excessive and useless worry, exaggerated introspection.... Their success in eliminating these symptoms by surgically relieving intestinal toxemia is truly remarkable in the light of today’s commonly-held beliefs."
Dr. J.F. Burgess, Montreal General Hospital, reports the results of studying 109 cases of eczema. He states, “On the basis of clinical observations and sensitivity tests against various amino acids and ptomaine bases, eczema is probably caused by intestinal toxemia.
The Merck Manual, the medical industry's standard text for the diagnosis and treatment of disease, (interesting that a single drug company's "guide" is how we ALL get diagnosed and prescribed treatment), tells us that Colon Degeneration is on the RISE. The incidence of diverticulosis has increased dramatically over the last 40 years! It states, that
in 1950, only 10% of adults over the age of 45 had this disease, and by 1987 almost 80%! The latest edition states that the incidence "increases rapidly" over age 40 and that "EVERY person will have many" if they live long enough! Every American adult will have herniation of the large intestine!!
"Bacteria are always at the root of bowel problems, such as pain, bloating and gassiness. They can not be killed by zapping, because the high frequency current does not penetrate the bowel contents..... Although most bowel bacteria are beneficial, the ones that are not, like Salmonella, Shingella, and Clostridiums are extremely detrimental because they have the ability to invade the rest of your body and colonize a trauma site or tumorous organ. These same bacteria colonize a cancer tumor and prevent shrinking after the malignancy is stopped." Dr. Hulda Clark, "The Cure for All Cancers"
A word about constipation
One of the most frequent bowel problems that people experience today is constipation. Constipation is generally attributed to a low fiber diet and lack of sufficient water, which cause our fecal matter to become condensed and compressed.
Stress can also affect nutrient absorption and cause irritation of the small intestine. The large intestine absorbs minerals and water. When the membrane of the large colon is unhealthy (impacted), it cannot assimilate and absorb the minerals and creates deficiency diseases. The health of the entire body is maintained when the intestinal system is working properly.
A constipated digestive system is one in which the transition of toxic wastes is slow and the consistency of the stool can cause strain (which over time may cause hemorrhoids, varicose veins, hiatal hernia, or other mechanically induced problems). The longer the transit time, the longer the toxic waste matter sits in our bowel which allows proteins to putrefy, fats to rancify, and carbohydrates to ferment.
The longer your body is exposed to putrefying food in your intestines, the greater the risk of developing disease. Even with one bowel movement per day, you will still have at least three meals worth of waste matter putrefying in your colon at all times. On top of all this, your system can also become continuously self-polluting by the poisonous gases that are caused by foods you don't tolerate. These poisonous gases can enter your bloodstream, irritating your organs and joints.
Alternating between constipation and diarrhea, or diarrhea alone, are also indications of foul matter in your intestines. And finally, the much more serious problems of cancer and other immune system dysfunctions begin with a toxic bowel.
A good colon cleanse can help restore the colon and bowel to a healthy working condition.
A word about diverticulitis
At the turn of the last century, diverticulitis was unheard of.
By 1987 almost 80% of Americans have some form of the disease. Diverticula are saccular herniations, that protrude through the wall of the colon. These "bowel pockets" are almost always asymptomatic, (you can't feel them). They are caused by a SLUGGISH constipated bowel. These pockets fill with OLD Fecal material which can be REABSORBED back into the Bloodstream! This can infect the ENTIRE body causing ALL types of TOXIC REACTIONS!!
Look at what can happen to the shape of a persons lower intestines. This can happen when toxic matter builds up on their intestinal wall throughout the years:
As the colon becomes impacted with dry putrefactive waste, its shape and function are affected in numerous ways. It may stretch like a balloon
in certain areas, or develop diverticula (pouches on the intestinal wall which may become infected), or fall down upon itself (prolapsed colon). All of these colon malformations greatly impair your large intestine's ability to function, which in turn places severe strain on your digestive organs and glands and affects nutrient assimilation and absorption. The colon is the body's "sewer system", and if not treated properly can accumulate toxic poisons, which are absorbed into the bloodstream. This in turn can
cause many diseases.
See here for a word on Mucoid Plaque in the Colon.
Elements of a Good Bowel \ Colon Cleanse:
One important facet of bowel cleansing that is USUALLY overlooked is a PARASITE regime. Parasites (like a toxic bowel) also play a major role in MOST disease. A toxic bowel is directly correlated to increased risk of parasite investation. Scientists have identified over
300 types of parasites
thriving in America. The types include pinworms, tapeworms, ringworms, whipworms, hookworms, roundworms, Giardia lamblia, and even many microscopic varieties. Regular diarrhea is often a sign of parasites in the bowels.
These body invaders are present and become even more dangerous when you consider that most U.S. physicians don't recognize the classic symptoms of parasite infestation, so they manage their patients with symptom care, never getting to the root cause.
Read more here about the importance of parasite cleansing
In General, elements of a good colon cleanse should include:
A Parasite Protocol.
Not included in the "basic" colon cleanse kit, but is available.
Herbal Laxative. A formula to gently stimulate bowel muscle action, soften and break up toxic waste... especially if constipated.
As toxic sludge begins to release into your body, you need to bolster your system’s ability to detoxify.
Probiotics. Your intestines need “friendly” bacteria (probiotics) to perform all of their functions, including the suppression and elimination of pathogenic microorganisms, and also to help break down sludge. Dr. Clark and many other doctors and researchers agree: proper enzyme levels and healthy natural intestinal flora is crucial for maintaining optimal natural digestion and nutrient absorption.
Enzymes and enzyme enhancers. Enzymes, healthy
Acids, Oxygen agents, and other constituents greatly assist the body in breaking down food more completely. Especially old putrefied matter that has has collected and begun to form
mucoid plaque along the bowel wall.
Internal "Scrubbers" like
Bentonite Clay and
Bentonite clay first adsorbs toxins (heavy metals, free radicals, pesticides), attracting them to its extensive surface area where they adhere like flies to sticky paper; then it absorbs the toxins, taking them in the way a sponge mops up a kitchen counter mess.
Psyllium Seed is an intestinal cleanser. Excellent for removing old accumulated mucus and feces that may have become impacted in pockets of the colon. Acts as a bulky mucilaginous material to aid in elimination.
IMPORTANT! In general, scrubbers like these should be used AFTER an initial phase of colon cleansing. We like these products, but one needs to be very careful when using them, and may
seriously wish consulting your physician while using these products. Complications may arise if you use too much. Some researchers feel that clay can be toxic. Because of the potential risk of painful bowel symptoms with these products, we do not sell them. Everything we sell is FREE OF ALL POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS.
water and coffee enemas can dramatically aid the cleansing process.
Not hard to understand this one. Flushing out the lower colon
and bowels simply help to remove any built up material that can be
"caught" in folds, tears, or diverticula pockets, thereby reducing
the risk of complications associated with rotting matter and
Things you can do to enhance your colon cleanse:
Reduce Your Eating.
This enables your body to focus on clearing out the toxins and old fecal matter without the distraction and energy output of digesting new foods. Whenever possible, eat 5-10 small meals or healthy snacks throughout the day to avoid "overloading" the bowel (like most of us do daily). See our 13-Day Whole Food Cleanse here for a great food source.
Drink lots of CLEAN water. At least 1/2 gallon to 1 gallon daily. Alkaline water can assist the removal of acids.
See more about clean water sources here.
Eat Whole Foods
Whole foods (fruits and vegetables) are much easier for the colon and body to process, and will provide valuable natural enzymes that are alive.
It is generally recommended that we do not eat meat during the cleanse in order to reduce acid-forming dietary input. Especially red meat. If you DO eat meat, make sure it is to Well Done, and eat a small portion. We strongly advise NOT eating breads, rices, and pastas that use bleached flour. Also, you may wish to avoid potatoes, yams, and sweet potatoes during and 30 days after they have completed the colon cleanse.
Enemas. If you wish to see quicker results for waste removal, consider colonic enemas. These can be done in conjunction with the herbal cleanse we sell. You can do them yourself at home. (Your local drug store should have these.) Enemas are very effective whenever you're doing ANY kind of body cleanse, because so many toxins and dead bio-organisms end up in your bowels. The more toxicity you can eliminate quickly, the better the results you can see with your colon cleanse (and subsequent body cleanses), and overall health.
Epsom Salts. A great natural remedy for constipation is to use Epsom Salts. Add 2-4 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water, and drink before bed. (several nights in a row if need be) This is a great natural laxative, and should help the colon make more productive bowel movements.
Olive Oil. Another simple thing you can try is taking a tablespoon of Virgin Olive Oil BEFORE dinner. This adds healthy fat, which aids the passing of waste by softening stool and lubricating the bowel.
Ozonate your olive oil for best results.
The last thing we highly recommend for immediate relief and increased regularity is "juicing". Lots of green veggies with just a little fruit to sweeten. With an empty stomach (for best results), drink 8-12 ounces daily for a week or two, then you can back off to a more suitable schedule for you. We often find instant results for constipation by juicing. If you are chronically backed up, you should use a juicer that removes the fiber. Too much
non-soluble fiber in an impacted bowel can make you feel bloated, and be counter productive to the cleanse. By using a normal juicer (normally removes most of the fiber), you get a concoction that is literally alive with enzymes that can more easily move through the bowel and begin to eat away and loosen bowel and colon sludge. Many people report having "blowouts" within hours after their 1st 12 ounce juice. Juicing will also accomplish the next 2 suggestions.
Things you should consider while do
ANY body cleanse...
Your body depends on the essential alkaline minerals potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium to remove toxic acids, maintain fluid balance in cells and the bloodstream, and control pH, hormone secretion, nerve conduction, and other functions. An effective way to deliver alkalinizing electrolytes is via juice of beets, celery, and carrots, or take a comprehensive supplement that contains all the above. (Gatorade and bananas work well to.) Our favorite supplement is
As the intestines begin to purge themselves of old matter and mucoid plaque, large amounts of toxins and free radicals are released. It is prudent to take an
antioxidant formula while doing the colon cleanse to help your system clean up these released toxins. Again, our favorite supplement is
A Word About The Cleansing Process
The body's systems work together and rely on each other to properly process all the nutrition and poison we take in daily. As with any complex system, there is a BEST way to go about maintaining it. For anyone serious about cleansing, we HIGHLY recommend a comprehensive, and systematic approach.
This sequence is highly recommended by many natural health practitioners and medical doctors alike.
The idea is to clean the sludge out of the digestive the system, so when we eventually reach the liver flush, we get as much toxins, dead parasites, and
liver/gallstones out as possible. Toxic accumulations are eliminated from the alimentary canal and then toxic overloads start releasing from the liver, kidneys, and lymphatic system. This allows the entire body to detoxify and function more efficiently.
For ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM efficacy,
especially if dealing with chronic health issues, consider adding
the "Heavy Metal" kit for this "Heavy Duty" total body cleanse. The
sequence would look like this.... (Bowel, Parasite, Kidney, Metal,

500mg 50 capsules
Ingredients: Pancreatin, Pepsin, Ginger root, Lipase, Trypsin, Bromelain, and Papain. No additives, no fillers and no excipients.
Suggested use: Adults and children 12 or more years of age, 1 capsule daily or as directed by health professional.
Digestive enzymes break down the food you eat and convert it into the basic nutrients needed to build and repair different parts of your body. Pancreatin breaks down food in the acidic stomach as well as in the more neutral intestines. Trypsin
acts to break down dietary protein molecules to their component peptides and amino acids.
It is often referred to as a proteolytic enzyme, or proteinase. Trypsin is one of the three principal digestive proteinases. (the other two being pepsin and chymotrypsin).
Pepsin degrades food particles into peptides and amino acids. Ginger Root is a time-tested herb for nourishing digestive tract health. Lipase is an enzyme necessary for the absorption and digestion of nutrients in the intestines. Bromelain is a pineapple enzyme that may assist the body during times of physical stress. It is also a digestive enzyme with a wide pH range, which can function within the acidic environment of the stomach. Papain is a protein-cleaving enzyme derived from papaya and certain other plants. Enzymes are involved in every metabolic and cellular process in your body, including maintaining your immune system.
