Q: It has been about a week since I completed a bottle of 100 capsules of each of the Intestinal Cleanser and the Bowel Motion. I have noticed that I feel constipated and bloated again. I am thinking about getting the Bowel Motion pills again but I don't want to become dependent on them. Will I become dependent on them? Should I rotate herbs and try something else for a while? What other herbal options do you recommend?

Q: I have used many of your products - the full body cleanse, the female cleanse, and I completed the respiratory cleanse last month. I felt great during the cleanse; when I got off of it, I didn't feel that I was eliminating as easily or consistently. I had purchased the Intestinal Cleanser and the Bowel Motion and started taking them together in the evenings, but I missed a few days due to travel. I noticed that I felt horrible during the days that I was taking it (and felt better when I was off of it).....my stomach felt bloated and cramped and I had headaches and low energy. I am wondering if the combination is too strong for me. Do you recommend taking only the Bowel Mover, or are you supposed to take both? Is it possible that I have a digestion problem? I also had purchased the Thyroid herbs. Is it okay to take those at the same time, or should I wait?
Read our article HEALING CRISIS!
Herbs don't cause any health problems. They help you to heal from them. You were experiencing healing crisis, which can be unpleasant; but your body doesn't care. it just wants to heal itself.
I suggest you take these herbs at night right before you go to bed (which is the best time to do so anyway).
And yes, you can take the Thyroid formula ... but take it in the morning!
Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!
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?
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.

Hope this helps,

Q: My question today is, when taking the BOWEL MOVER can I take all three capsules at once or should I take one every two or four hours. Please advise.
Yes, you can take all at once. For future reference as well, Beloved, check out our â€FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGEâ€ where many common questions have been answered by us. Not all, but many! It is good to hear you really enjoy our products!
Q: The herbal laxatives that dherbs has - BOWEL MOVER, COLON FORMULA & INTESTINAL JANITOR- which would be the best to take with the other herbs that you have listed under Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in your Herbal Chart? I see that you recommend Bowel Mover, but would either of the other 2 work better?
Go with BOWEL MOVER! It's the strongest of the 3 formulas.
Q: I recently received my order of the BOWEL MOVER and WEIGHT RELEASE TEA. Those products are working very well for me. I want to purchase something right away to help with the asthma that my son suffers with and has had for 17 yrs. I am not sure which products to order. He is on an Rx inhaler right now and I would like to try something more effective and natural and maybe something for his eczema as well.
I WOULD SUGGEST YOUR SON PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN AND LUNGS AND RESPIRATORY FORMULA. OH, AND ALSO OUR RESPIRATORY INSPIRANT (INHALER). Try our OZ OIL for the eczema.
Q: I am a 37yr. old male who has had severe IBS for six years. I have chronic constipation and can't get go without some help. I want to know if I can use Bowel Mover tea every night and it is safe to do so without harm and I won't become addicted to it.
Yes, you can use Bowel Mover Tea every night without worry of addiction or harm.
Q: My son is 10 and only has a bowel movement once every 3 days. When his ped. Gives him meds. She gives him adult strength because of his size. Could he use colon cleanse? He will take pills but won't drink what you have for children.
IF HE CAN SWALLOW SMALL SIZED CAPSULES, YES! HE CAN TAKE THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE (ALONG WITH THE LIQUID CHILDRENâ€™S COLON EXTRACT). AND EVEN BOWEL MOVER TEA. ALL OF THESE WILL HELP HIM.
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?
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: My daughter is six years old. Since she was an infant, she had problems with going to the bathroom. I noticed she only has a bowel movement approximately 2 times a week if that. I told her doctor and he recommended the product Maalox daily. I hear you are supposed to have a bowel movement at least once a day. Even I myself do not go as often. Please help
FOR THE CHILD, I RECOMMEND CHILDRENâ€™S COLON EXTRACT. ALSO GIVE THE CHILD PRUNE JUICE BEFORE BEDTIME 3-4 TIMES A WEEK. FOR YOURSELF, I RECOMMEND YOU PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. ALSO DRINK BOWEL MOVER TEA AND PRUNE JUICE AS WELL. THE ABOVE SHOULD GET YOU GUYS REGULATED AND WELL. PLEASE KNOW THAT IT IS YOUR DIET THAT CAUSES YOU AND YOUR CHILD TO BE CONSTIPATED.
Q: I have been using this product for about a week and there are days when I do not have a bowel movement. I have started having gas and cramps. The days that I do have bowel movements it is hard as if I am constipated. This product has not worked for me at all. Please Help.
IT'S NOT THE HERBS, IT'S YOUR BODY! YOU COLON IS GREATLY IMPAIRED AND SO IT TAKES TIME TO BUST UP ALL THAT CRUDE MATTER (HARD FECES) IN YOUR COLON. NATURAL HEALING REQUIRES PATIENCE. JUST KEEP TAKING YOUR HERBS AND KEEP EATING HEALTHY (NO MEAT, DAIRY, REFINED GRAINS, REFINED STARCHES). HOPEFULLY YOU CHANGED YOUR DIET IN ADDITION TO TAKING THE HERBS. THAT HELPS!
Q: I have a question...which are good products to take for someone with irritable bowel syndrome? I told my friend that if anyone could help him you can. Thanks so much in advance and have a blessed evening!
Please read our article entitled "IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME" as we have already tackled this disease. Remedies are offered near the very end of the article. Thank you for understanding, Beloved!
Q: I was wondering if you could subject something for irritable bowel syndrome? Also can one have a reaction to milk thistle?
It's possible for one to have a reaction to Milk Thistle, but more often than not, it's a healing crisis, as the herb is deeply cleansing the body, esp. the liver. Herbs shouldn't harm, they simply help to heal.
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?
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: 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.
Have your read our article of "Hemorrhoids" on our site?
Q: I'm looking for a great colon detox. I found many on the internet that shows pictures of long rubber like bowel movements. I was surprise to see that, I feel the same may be inside me. I'm wondering if yours do the same cause I want to totally cleanse my colon. If so how long do I take it and is the bowel movements watery and painful, with your product?
At Dherbs, we concentrate on not just the colon but the other eliminative channels, i.e. liver, lungs, kidneys. With our Full Body Detox, you're getting a great colon cleanse, but that which is more balanced and wholistic. It will greatly help to normalize your bowels and counteract all colon pathologies. You will enjoy our Full Body Detox. One of the six formulas is concocted solely for the colon.
p.s. - We have a 10-day Colon Cleansing Kit coming very soon (January 2008). So stay tuned to Dherbs.Com!
Q: Since my surgery for fibroids last year my bowel movements is very slow and I am gaining weight around my stomach even my breasts are looking much fuller why are my breasts looking fuller? I am also eating lots of fruits, but it does not send me to the bathroom, are the fruits helping my breasts?
Your breasts are becoming fuller because they have become the waste location for all the fluid waste that you are not expelling below (lower eliminative channels) due to the surgery. The breasts are one of five major fatty reserves on the female body (i.e. breasts, buttocks, belly, thighs, and upper back arms). Read our article "Toxic Breasts" on our site under Articles."
You are probably not eating your fruit according to the laws of food combining (we have a chart available on our site under "Food Combining Chart"). I would recommend that you consider performing the Full Body Cleanse; or, give our Bowel Motion, Colon Formula, and Intestinal Cleanser formulas a try and watch the improvement in your bowel movements -- guaranteed! All you need is 2-3 capsules of each formula per day and you'll see the results you desire.
Q: Which product should I purchase if I want to clear out hard fecal matter from my colon? Bowel Mover or the Colon Formula?
Q: I have used a product similar to your Bowel Mover which has both senna leaf and cascara sagrada as ingredients. Recently I had a colonoscopy and the gastroenterologist found staining from these ingredients. He also told me that if I continued to use them that they would have a reverse effect, making my minimal peristaltic action stop completely. What is your thoughts on my continued use of these products? Are there any herbs that would strengthen my peristaltic action, making it work on its own?
It is not true about the herbs. Plants are not like drugs! These herbs will not stain anything in your body. They are organic plants. Doctors are one half of all problems for giving people wrong information, usually in which people will believe or start thinking about. Stick with herbs for your healing. Try our COLON FORMULA and/or BOWEL MOVERand change your diet and you will be fine. Try nature!
Q: I'm on my 10th day of the Full body cleanse and I have only dropped like 5 pounds. When I go walking and come back to weigh myself. I see that I'm down like 3 lbs. But, when I weigh myself the next morning, I still only lost 5 pounds. I have lost my appetite completely. I eat fruits and a small salad other than that, I have no desire to eat. I have bowel movements about 3 times a day however, they are not regular size bowel movements. I even had a colonics yesterday, and not much happened with that, no movement. I'm just wondering what can I do to optimize my weight lost with this detox? I had taken smooth move too... still no change... Please advise.
Stop putting so much energy (emphasis) on how much (weight) you're losing. You're creating a block for yourself. In fact, you should even stop weighing yourself. Only do so after you complete the cleanse. Just focus on how you feel, and what you desire -- your objective, okay!
