Dr. Jensen also described the problem associated with mucoid plaque (thickened intestinal mucus) as: "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."
Cascara sagrada appears in the national formularies of most countries, and has been in the United States Pharmacopoeia since 1890. Early plant chemists identified the key active constituents in cascara sagrada bark as aloe-emodin, barbaloin cascarosides A and B, and emodin. These compounds stimulate peristalsis, the vigorous wavelike contractions of the large intestine that keep food moving through the digestive system. When cascara speeds the process up, the body produces a softer, quicker bowel movement because the intestine has had less chance to absorb the liquid from the stool. Several studies have shown that cascara sagrada is effective in easing chronic constipation in elderly people.
Hi Betty, We appreciate your feedback and have consulted with a number of health experts and supplement industry experts on this issue. There is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding about magnesium stearate which is an innocuous excipient used so that the capsules don’t stick in the production process. There are minuscule amounts in the product which have never been definitively proven to be toxic.
I’ve had colon hydrotherapy on and off for a few years now. The place I go to in Las Vegas normally puts healthy bacteria in the final part of the session. Foot and hand massage are also performed if wanted. They also massage the stomach to help loosen areas/help water flow. At the end as you are leaving, they provide a cup of emergen C mix and cup of homemade vegetarian soup to complete your session.
The following Q&A from our FAQ section on doing a Liver/Gallbladder cleanse addresses this issue. 13. I did not see stones in the toilet, why is that? We have heard from many people that they have seen "horrible" things floating in the toilet. But many notice nothing. That's not unusual. In many cases the stones are too small to notice -- or too few. Also, using the psyllium, which makes the elimination of waste much easier, tends to encapsulate and makes things harder to see. Another thing to keep in mind is that people often confuse the little "soap" beads that the body can make out of the olive oil as stones. On the other hand, the fact the body often produces "soap stones" doesn't mean that it isn't also flushing real gallstones. In the end, though, it's not what you see, it's how you feel. Wait for a few days after the cleanse and then evaluate. Do you feel lighter and cleaner? Is your breathing a little easier, less mucousy? Does food taste better? Etc. These are the tangible results you're after. Or if nothing else, were you able to break some bad eating habits or lose some of that extra weight you picked up over the holidays? That said, are you doing the stone softening program that Jon Barron recommends before doing your flush? This helps make the program more effective. Also, you refer to an apple juice flush. This makes me wonder if you are following a different version of the flush or protocol than we recommend on this site. If so, then you probably need to check with the people who recommend that protocol to figure out how to maximize its effectiveness.
It should be noted that the medical community probably has more trouble with the concept of detoxing than with any other aspect of alternative health and is frequently attacking it. Back in 2009, for example, a report by Voice of Young Science blasted detoxing and found it to be largely nonsense. But in fact, as I explained at the time, the report, was itself largely nonsense. The researchers chose the widest definition possible for detoxing including detox shampoos and spa therapies in their analysis, and they used very little science to back their claims--mostly personal opinion. The one valid point they did make is that the word "detox" has become so widely used that it has lost much of its meaning. That is true, and that's why I always clarify what kind of detoxing I'm referring to such as: Comparison of colon-cleansing methods in preparation for colonoscopy
