Intestinal Health: Problems and Remedies

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: 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: I ordered the DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE and this is day 3. I have been experiencing a lot of cramping and runny, liquid bowel movements. I have not taken any of the formulas this morning because of the effects I've been having. It's certainly working because in the last movement I passed a lot of mucus. I would like to complete the full 10 days but if these are the side effects I can't go to work this way. I have already taken today off. Should I discontinue the program or cut back on one of the formulas? One last note, I have been sticking with raw fruits and vegetables.

    A:

    I WOULD SUGGEST YOU CUT BACK ON THE NUMBER OF CAPSULES YOU ARE TAKING. TAKE A DAY OR TWO OFF FROM THE KIT AND RE-START BUT ONLY TAKE 2-3 CAPSULES OF EACH FORMULA WHEN YOU START BACK UP. DIARRHEA IS A SIGN OF HARD STOOLS TRAPPED IN THE COLON AND THE BODY IS ATTEMPTING TO LIQUIFY THEM. THAT'S ALL!

    Q: Several people in the conscious community have stated that adding flax seeds and/or flax seed powder to our diet benefits the colon for complete and clean bowel movements. My question is, does flax seed powder or the seeds themselves promote parasites in the stomach and colon? A few of my friends and I have completed the parasite cleanse and got into a debate about it. Thank you very much, Hotep!

    A:

    Flax seed undoubtedly helps the colon (due to fiberous nature) but it is absurd to think or suggest that flax seeds (in any form) promotes parasites. Meat, dairy, refined grains and other processed foods is what promotes parasites in the stomach, colon, and rest of the body. So, as Public Enemy would say: "Don't believe the hype!"

    Q: I am on the full body cleanse. I never take any kind of herb or pill that is a laxitive as I have bowel movements 3 or more times a day - whenever I eat. I have noticed that I have very loose stools - diarrhea. I do not have an impacted colon as I have had colonics - eat a veg diet, primarily and have several cups of vegetables a day. Should I cut down on the supplement that has the laxative containing herbs?

    A:

    In re diarrhea, please READ our Detox Troubleshooter guide on our website.

    Loose stool suggests that you need more drinking water to help soften and loosen your stools which are too hard!

    Q: Can you please advise if the colon cleansing will have any effects if I suffer from loose stools rather than constipation? Have had issues with loose stools since my gall bladder was removed. Some improvement when I was diagnosed with thyroid disease and began taking Synthroid, but I still have issues with very loose stools and severe gas at times. Can this colon cleansing relieve these issues? Also, I have an allergy to nuts, all kinds. Can I still take the cleansing formulas that include the shells of walnuts; I believe is what it said. I must be very careful because I have been hospitalized after ingesting a very minute amount of what I think was peanuts. Your advice would be greatly appreciated as I am very interested in trying your products but at the same time I must be careful with my allergies. Also I’m allergic to eggs.

    A:

    YOU WOULD BENEFIT FROM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. BLACK WALNUT HULLS ARE SAFE FOR YOU. IT'S NOT ACTUALLY A NUT, BUT THE HULL FROM IT. ALLERGIES ARE OVERCOME WITH DEEP CLEANSING ON THE CELLULAR AND TISSUE LEVEL. REMOVAL OF THE GALLBLADDER HAS THROWN YOUR BODY OUT OF WHACK. HOWEVER, THE BODY DOES HAVE THE ABILITY TO COMPENSATE.

    Q: For the last few months off and on when I have bowel movements that are not "normal". I read somewhere that one's waste should float. My waste however comes out whole but tends to disintegrate in the water. I am very regular, I use the bathroom at least 3 times a day after each meal and maintain a pretty healthy vegan diet about 70% live foods. I was wondering if there could be an issue with absorption, or assimilation in my colon, possibly a fiber issue?

    A:

    Yes, stools should be whole (not disintegrate) and should float in the toilet water. Try increasing your dietary fiber intake with whole fruits and vegetables. Read some of our COLON articles on our site under "Articles."

    Q: Why should I pay for the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE when I could just get the COLON FORMULA capsules or BOWEL MOVER TEA or capsules which would be less expensive?

    A:

    Cleanses are more potent and ideal for most people who may have never cleansed. The individual formulas are for daily maintenance regimens after performance of a major cleanse. So you would want to take BOWEL MOVER and/or BOWEL MOVER TEA as a daily regimen to help keep you normal when you're not cleansing! I would suggest you take the major cleanses in this order: 1. FULL BODY DETOX, 2. WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, 3. TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, and 4. 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE

    Q: Do I need to take a "Probiotic Supplement" with the FULL BODY DETOX? For the bacteria that needs to stay inside your colon, because we lose good and bad bacteria from the colon from detoxing the whole body. Do good bacteria need to stay in our colon and bodies especially for women's vagina to keep it clean.

    A:

    Taking the supplement in addition to the cleanse is not necessary at all. The cleanse does not eliminate all of the good bacteria, if anything it plays a role in balancing it out. Probiotic supplements are not always the best choice.

    Q: I have already purchased both FULL BODY DETOX and DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. I was going to do the full body first then the colon cleanse as you suggested. I decided I should go ahead and order the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN because; well I want to get rid of as much waste/weight that I can. I feel sluggish, disgusting and toxic! Is it ok if I perform the weight loss regimen followed by the full body detox then colon cleanse? I am going away for a few weeks and this would work out much better for me as far schedule goes... Or is there a particular order I should follow to make my goal much more effective? I am not sure how strict the airlines are and I doubt I can find organic prune juice and undiluted cranberry juice where I am going....

    A:

    It's okay that you perform the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN first before the others. The key thing is that you perform all three kits.
