Dr Christopher defines this condition as ‘an unclean intestinal tract, constipation, with infrequent or difficult evacuation of the faeces, retention of the faeces and lack of coordination in the nerve and muscle functions of the colon and bowel’.
Symptoms include: chronic constipation, diarrhoea, gas, body odour and abdominal pain.
In most cases, improper diet (eating unwholesome food) has caused the peristaltic muscles in the colon to stop working. This unwholesome food creates a mucous forming substance which stays in the intestine by adhering to the walls. This mucous glues itself like wallpaper paste and forms layers around the intestinal walls. Each additional layer forms through incorrect eating habits and the muscular and absorptive tissues become thickly covered and less functional.
Most people have many pounds of old dried faecal matter that is stored in the colon which is toxifying the system and keeping the food from being assimilated properly. As a result most people consume many times more food than the actual body requirements.
The Lower Bowel Formula is the corrective food for the intestinal tract. The amount of capsules to take depends on the person, age, size etc. An individual can start on 2 capsules three times a day and then regulate the dosage from there. If the stools seem too loose then cut down, if it is difficult to get a bowel movement and the stool is hard then increase the amount until the stools become soft and well formed. In very severe cases a person could take up to 40 capsules a day as these herbs are a food for the bowels and can do no harm.
On average it can take a person up to six to nine months using the Lower Bowel Formula to clean out the old faecal matter and rebuild the bowel structure suitably to have the peristaltic muscles work on their own.
