Internal toxicity part two
Nutritional and herbal therapies against parasites
Thankfully nutritional medicine can eradicate nasty internal parasites, or at least get them down to such low levels that they can no longer damage your bowels and your health.
Natural antibiotics such as Intestinal Parasite Cleanse Capsules can really work well in cases of unwanted parasites, even in those who have had them for years. This is because parasites do not develop resistance to natural antibiotics, as unlike antibiotic drugs, they are far more complicated in their multiple biochemical ingredients.
Intestinal Parasite Cleanse Capsules contain a carefully chosen selection of antibiotic herbs - these include wormwood, black walnut, clove, deodorized garlic, butternut bark and Pau D'Arco. These herbs are all combined together in one capsule for your convenience.
How to take Intestinal Parasite Cleanse
The dose is 1 to 2 capsules, three times daily, just before food. Generally you need to take them for 6 weeks to eradicate the unfriendly bacteria and parasites. Some folks find that they need to repeat this course four months later, if they have had a big load of parasites. Do not take Parasite Cleanse if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
Diet to cleanse the bowel
During your bowel cleanse try to improve your diet as per the following –
Sugar and foods containing added sugar
Deep fried foods, but you can have stir fries with cold pressed olive oil
Preserved meats such as bacon, jerky, salami and smoked meats and smoked fish
Fast foods and processed foods such as donuts, pretzels, fries, etc
If you are gluten intolerant, please avoid gluten containing foods such as foods containing wheat, rye, barley and oats.
During a bowel cleanse, rice is preferable to gluten containing grains
Fermented foods such as tempeh and plain full fat Greek yogurt (avoid flavored yogurts)
Raw salads made with all types of lettuce, radicchio, cabbage, cucumber, bell peppers, celery, walnuts, apples, olives, avocado, tomatoes and carrots. Try to include some red radish, onions, garlic, ginger, oregano, cilantro and basil as these are natural antibiotics. You can use a grater or a garlic crush or a machine which chops things very finely. Grating hard vegetables makes them easier to digest.
You may have cooked vegetables of all varieties; you can have these roasted, baked, stir fried or steamed.
Good oils to use are cold pressed olive oil, coconut oil and macadamia nut oil.
Raw garlic is an excellent bowel cleanser and I eat it regularly.
You do not have to eat anything that you do not enjoy or anything that upsets your digestive system. Avoid things that you are allergic too.
Raw fruits – the best ones are citrus, berries, apples and stone fruits. Make sure the fruits are not moldy.
Tahini and hummus are excellent for the digestive system and provide easily absorbed minerals especially calcium.
Raw juices made with carrot, apple, cabbage, kale, lime, orange, grapefruit, pineapple and mint can help to heal the gut and reduce parasites. You do not have to include all of these at one time if your digestive system is sensitive just start with 3 or 4 ingredients. If the juice is too strong in flavor or effect you can dilute it with water or extra apple and carrot.
A dash of the fresh herbs oregano, thyme or cilantro will add more potent antibiotic effects. You can freeze the juices immediately after making them and store them in containers in the freezer. If you freeze them immediately after making them, this will retain all the healing properties of the juices. This enables you to avoid cleaning the juicer every day.
During a bowel cleanse you need to drink approximately 8 to 10 ounces of juice daily.
Extra things to support elimination of toxins
To support liver and gallbladder function I recommend Livatone capsules in a dose of 2 capsules twice daily. Livatone contains the most important liver herbs – milk thistle, dandelion and artichoke combined with the amino acid taurine. The liver continually makes bile, which is required for digestion, as well as eliminating toxins from the liver. Inside the liver cells, toxic substances such as heavy metals and fat-soluble chemicals are broken down into forms that can be excreted from the liver via the bile which is secreted into the intestines. Efficient and continual bile production and flow is a vital method of eliminating toxins. This function needs to be supported and Livatone is an excellent way to achieve this.
Selenomune is a yeast based energy powder that is enhanced with the essential minerals selenium, zinc and iodine in an easily absorbed form. It contains a friendly type of yeast that helps to fight unhealthy fungi such as candida albicans. The minerals selenium, zinc and iodine reduce inflammation and help your immune system to fight infections in the gut. Take one teaspoon once or twice daily in juice. If desired, Selenomune can be taken long term as it is a super food for energy production.
Observe your bowel actions during your cleanse
Always have a look at your bowel actions to observe their color and consistency. Your bowel actions can be light brown to dark brown or greenish in color, which is all normal. If your bowel actions are black (similar to a black tar color) this is abnormal and may indicate bleeding from the bowel. If there is red blood in your feces, this also indicates bleeding from the bowel or from hemorrhoids. Always tell your doctor, as this can be a sign of bowel cancer.
Many people will find the idea of checking their bowel actions a little gross or distasteful. But if you can't see what you're eliminating, then you can’t see the results!
Things you may find in your bowel actions
Mucoid plaque is the old putrefied fecal matter that has been stuck to the sides and corners of your colon and small intestine. This may have been stuck in your bowel for months all the while causing inflammation and reducing the absorption of nutrients.
Mucoid plaque forming foods are: sugar, processed foods, refined flour and preserved meat. Mucoid plaque has different shapes and sizes depending from what area in your gut it originated. It may resemble ropes; these are discs and balls held together by a stringy mucus like substance. These ropes can get quite long and their color may vary from yellow-green, light brown to very dark brown. They should not be tar black, as this indicates bleeding from the bowel, which is often a sign of bowel cancer. Mucoid plaque can look quite weird and may be soft, firm or rubbery.
If you have ever had a colonic irrigation (professional enema) you may have got this rubbery old fecal matter out of your bowels before.
Some of my patients have passed strange looking objects or worms and that’s why it’s important to check your bowel actions during a bowel cleanse. If you do pass anything that moves, such as a worm, keep it in a jar for your doctor to check at the lab.
