Most doctor-prescribed parasite medications can damage the liver. Herbalists have used these herbs for centuries to safely kill parasites. Garlic's proven antiparasitic action alone is more powerful than all other parasite-killing herbs. Some parasites such as the strongyloides parasite have been known to survive in the body for as long as twenty years. Many chronic diseases such as cancer, fibromyalgia, allergies, and athritis have been linked to parasite infection. Some fungal infections as well as Candida problems can be accompanied by the presence of parasites. Until the parasites are killed, it may be very difficult to kill the fungi or yeast organisms. Because parasites weaken the immune system, they can leave the body more vulnerable to all types of infection.
Parasites come in all different sizes and shapes. From the tapeworms that are several feet long, to threadlike pinworms, to round or liver flukes to microscopic sized single-celled parasites which cannot be seend with the human eye, parasites undoubtably cause much sickness and disease. Many people who have suffered from chronic digestive problems for years are simply unaware that they have been infected. With the advent of international travel and international trade, many parasites have come into the country. Other parasites, such as the microscopic Giardia lamblia or Cryptosporidium can easily be picked up from contaminated tap water anywhere in America. Conscientious pet owners can still pick up Toxoplasma gondii parasite from their cats and many types of parasites such as the heartworm from their dogs.
This formula often shows results in a matter of days. Many herbal parasite formulas take months to work. These antiparasite herbs are combined in a very powerful formula designed to act quickly. The most thorough results are obtained with three weeks of continuous use to kill all stages of the parasite.
Suggested usage: 2 to 3 droppers full three times daily. This formula is best combined with the Colon Detox Caps and either the Vibrant Colon Formula (for most people) or the Colon Start Plus Formula (for more severe constipation issues.) Cathartic herbs such as those found in these formulas help stimulate the intestines to eliminate the parasites from the body once they have been killed. For best results, use for three weeks continuously and then stop. This routine is normally used up to 4 times per year. For Candida issues/Chronic Fatigue, follow up with Immune Valor.
Herbal Quality Tip: herbs that fight parasites should taste very bitter. If there is no bitter taste, then it is likely a poor quality product.
Supports proper bowel function:
This formula is a bit stronger than the Colon Activator Formula. It is the strongest laxative formula that we have. The herb Turkey Rhubarb does not contain turkey, but is an herb that also has beneficial cleansing effects on the blood, liver and intestines. This formula also contains psyllium seed and slippery elm, to soothe irritated intestines and cleanse the large intestine. These herbs also prevent the burning sensations that cayenne can cause during bowel movements. Since there is no garlic in this formula, it is much less likely to cause heartburn. Taken by itself, this is a milder cleanse that is an alternative to the full 2 product Intestinal Rejuvenation Program. Excellent for those who don't have time to do a full colon cleanse.
Benefits: This formula alone has helped many with hepatitis due to the beneficial action of these herbs on the liver. The Barberry helps to thin and move stagnant bile. The liver produces bile in order to process cholesterol in the body as well as to carry enzymes which digest dietary fats. In disease states, the bile thickens and does not flow freely through the liver and gallbladder regions. This contributes to hepatitis, gall stones, poor hormonal balance, fatigue and other problems. This formula begins the body's process of ridding itself of old, thickened residues located in the liver and gallbladder.
Actions: It is a cathartic formula, purging toxins from the bowel. It does this specifically by stimulating the peristaltic action of the bowels to cause bowel movements. It may be taken on an ongoing basis since it has a long term effect of strengthening the muscles of the intestinal walls without creating a dependency. It is designed to be used with the Colon Detox Caps (or the Colon Soothe Formula). They work together in a balanced way to stimulate, strengthen, rejuvenate and regenerate the intestinal lining.
The goal of this formula is to get the bowel working at least once for each meal eaten during the day. This is the way normal, disease-free bowels function (in infants, and in countries where only unprocessed foods are consumed)
Who Can Take it: This formula is helpful for anyone wishing to improve the function of the intestines and liver. It is also beneficial for those with high cholesterol, hepatitis, gallstones, hemorrhoids, diverticulosis, colon polyps, colon cancer, and constipation. It helps those with spinal cord injuries who cannot have bowel movements without enemas and those with nerves missing or damaged from the bowel who cannot have normal bowel movements.
Those Who Shouldn't Take It: Those who are currently having diarrhea or those taking doctor-prescribed blood thinning medication (due to the natural blood thinning effects of garlic). This formula is too strong for children to use, with the rare exception of extreme constipation (e.g. Hirschsprung's Disease) The garlic in this formula may cause discomfort for those with stomach ulcers. In the case of ulcers, use the Colon Soothe Formula instead and skip any cathartic formulas: Colon Start Plus, Vibrant Colon and Colon Activator.
Suggested Usage: As part of the Intestinal Rejuvenation Program, take one capsule with dinner the first evening. This formula takes around 12-14 hours to work. The goal is to have one bowel movement for each major meal eaten throughout the day. So, for example, if you eat 2 meals a day, you should have two bowel movements a day. If, after the first day, you do not notice a change in the quantity or frequency of the bowel movements, then take 2 capsules on that second evening. If you do not notice results after the third day, then increase to 3 capsules with dinner that third night. If you still don't notice results after the third night, continue to increase the number of capsules taken with dinner to one more capsule than the dose you took the night before. Do this until your bowels are moving at least once for every meal you eat during the day. Note: do not increase the dose if your bowels are moving once for each meal you eat.
Once you've gotten to the point where bowels are moving once for each meal eaten during the day (whether that's one capsule with dinner, or up to twenty capsules with dinner), then stay on the dose that has this effect, and begin the Colon Detox Caps (or the Colon Soothe Formula), only increasing the Colon Start Plus Formula by one more capsule if needed.
During this program, the bowel movements should be soft, large and easy to eliminate. The consistency should be like the consistency of smooth peanut butter. Many people are used to being constipated, and they wrongly think that this consistency is diarrhea when they do this routine. However, if you experience watery diarrhea at any time, this means you took too many capsules.
How long it will last: at an average of 3 capsules per day = 1 month supply. Typical duration is one to two weeks. Can be combined with other cleanses such as the Kidney Revitalization Program or the Liver Regeneration Program.
Colon Activator (Formerly Eliminator I):
Stimulates Intestinal Movement: ***The Colon Activator Formula is an extra strength cathartic formula that is mostly similar to the Colon Start Plus Formula and Vibrant Colon Formula, but contains garlic and is stronger than the Vibrant Colon Formula. It purges toxins from the bowel. It does this specifically by stimulating the peristaltic action of the bowels.
This formula is normally used when bowel movements only occur once every two or three days or even less often. I've met many people who related to me that they only had bowel movements once every two weeks or even only once per month. These people were seriously ill with chronic health conditions. The more severe the constipation problem, usually the more severe the chronic health condition. The body is simply not designed to retain excess waste created by backed up bowel movements. Stimulating peristalsis and getting the bowels moving again is the best way to protect against intestinal diseases such as hemorrhoids, colon cancer, rectal cancer, diverticulosis and diverticulitis as well as to increase overall health.
The bitters create a healing action in the liver to help it rid itself of any irritants (such as pharmaceutical medications or pesticide residues), which cause inflammation or liver damage. Many of these herbs have been used by herbalists to kill parasites of all types. The garlic, in addition to killing parasites, helps to chelate out any heavy metal residues in the body that cause neurologic problems and chronic fatigue problems. It has a laxative effect. However, when used along with dietary changes (plant-based diet), it has a long-term effect of strengthening the muscles of the intestinal walls. It is designed to be used along with the Colon Detox Caps. They work together in a balanced way to stimulate and cleanse the intestines. This formula works best for those who have sluggish bowels, so it is not for those with diarrhea or colitis.
How long it will last: at an average of 3 capsules per day = 1 month supply.
Suggested usage: start with one capsule with the evening meal. Increase dose if needed. For a milder formula, use the Vibrant Colon Formula. For youngsters, use the Colon Cleanse Syrup instead, which is even milder. Some cases of constipation can be traced back to sluggish liver function. In these cases, the L /GB Formula or the Liver Regeneration Program can bring very favorable results. The Colon Activator Formula is contraindicated for those who have diarrhea or who have a history of colitis. Pregnant women should consult their physician before taking any laxative formulas such as the Colon Activator Formula. Some people may experience heartburn due to the garlic content. This usually happens when someone forgets to take the formula during the day and takes it late at night. The heartburn is not harmful and may easily be remedied by drinking aloe vera juice with the formula or substituting the Colon Start Plus Formula for the Colon Activator Formula.
Clinical Tip: This formula has worked to bring on bowel movements even though the nerves to the bowel were missing or damaged. This is because it stimulates the intestinal lining directly, and does not need nerve action to work.
Activates intestinal movement: Colon Cleanse Syrup is a milder version of the Vibrant Colon Formula gentle enough for the very young to the very old. It is suitable for those who have a more sensitive digestive system, or perhaps only a mild problem with constipation.
What it is:This formula is a purely organic herbal formula based on prune puree and fig puree with mild intestinal herbs to help stimulate intestinal peristalsis.
Benefits: Having more peristaltic movements in the intestines can help with many childhood problems such as constipation, gastroesophageal reflux, reflux esophagitis or other problems with digestion. Many parents don't realize how inadequate peristalsis can lead to severe problems with esophageal reflux. This formula also helps to cleanse the intestinal walls. Has stimulating and healing effects on the stomach, intestines and the liver.
Who can take it:Especially designed for fussy tastebuds, it is much easier to get this great-tasting formula into little ones' mouths. Also for those who, for whatever reason, are unable to swallow capsules.
Suggested usage: varies according to the individual's body weight, and is listed on label. In cases of young children with serious health issues, this syrup should be used with any detoxifying herbs in order to ensure adequate elimination of toxins being released from the body during an herbal cleanse.
For adults: this formula can be taken by people of all ages, but since it's such a mild formula, grown ups will find they need to take a much larger dose - up to 12 or 14 droppers full. Children who are over 4 years old can also add on a small dose of Colon Detox Caps. 4 fluid ounces.
What it is: soothing, mucilaginous herbs in powder form that absorb toxins, soothe and heal intestinal lining. It is identical to the Colon Detox Caps but in a powdered form.
The Colon Soothe Formula is wonderful to use in cases of irritated intestines that result in chronic or acute diarrhea. It works by absorbing whatever irritants (bacteria, virus, parasite, heavy metal, pharmaceutical residues or other toxins) are causing the colon to be overstimulated. Usually, the colon reacts with diarrhea when there is a harmful substance within it, and it is merely trying to get the harmful substance out. For many reasons such as a weak immune system or inadequate nutrition or some types of medications, the colon may not be successful in its attempts to remove the toxic material.
This formula picks up where the colon stimulating formulas leave off, and removes harmful toxins from the bowel. It is a great formula to use in conjunction with mercury and heavy metal detoxification programs. For many people, this formula is constipating when taken at full dose. This is why the Vibrant Colon Formula or Colon Start Plus Formula should be taken to counteract this effect while allowing a deep cleansing effect of the intestines. This formula also contains mucilaginous herbs to that the colon cleanse is not abrasive in any way, but soothing and comfortable.
Who Can Take It:
How long it will last: This formula should last for one week if taken at the normal dose.
Suggested usage: take one heaping teaspoon in a glass of water or juice. Follow with an additional glass of water. Take five times daily during the Intestinal Rejuvenation Program. For spasms that occur during bouts of colitis, Peppermint oil can also be taken internally one drop at a time. For absolute best results, combine with juicing. During the first week of a bout of colitis, nothing should be consumed but fresh vegetable juices, this formula, and Peppermint oil. Juicing can be extended out to longer periods if needed. This Colon Soothe Formula should last for one week if taken at the normal dose one heaping teaspoon five to six times daily or two teaspoons three times daily). This formula should be added to an eight ounce glass of water or juice (fruit or vegetable), shaken in a jar or cup with a lid. This helps the formula mix better. Follow this with an additional eight ounce glass of water. Many like the taste with apple juice. It can take up to three months of daily use in order to experience a life-changing effect.
This formula is also used along with the Vibrant Colon or Colon Start Plus Formula as part of a bowel cleansing system. (Vibrant Colon, Colon Start Plus and Colon Activator are never used when there is diarrhea.) The Colon Soothe Formula is a soothing, absorbing formula.
To counteract food poisoning, it may be taken at double the normal dose.
Colon Detox Caps:
The most convenient option for those with busy schedules
By itself, this formula is wonderful for irritated intestines (Crohn's disease, colitis, infectious diarrhea, food poisoning, celiac sprue, irritable bowel syndrome, and other types of chronic and acute diarrhea). It works by absorbing whatever irritant (bacteria, virus, parasite, heavy metal, pharmaceutical residues or other toxins) which are causing the colon to be overstimulated. Usually, the colon reacts with diarrhea when there is a harmful substance within it, and the colon is merely trying to get it out. For many reasons such as a weak immune system or inadequate nutrition or some types of medications, the colon may not be successful in its attempts to remove the toxic material. This formula picks up where the colon leaves off, helping it to rid itself of any harmful substances.
In combination with either the Vibrant Colon Formula, the Colon Start Plus Formula, or Colon Activator, it helps to remove deposits in the intestines that can cause headaches, foggy thinking, liver problems, fatigue, toxic lymph system, heart problems, draining wounds, skin rashes, constipation and many other health problems. Unless there is chronic diarrhea, the Vibrant Colon or the Colon Start Plus Formula should also be taken, since this formula has a constipating effect for many people when taken at the full dose. However, it is this full dose that has the most powerful effect of drawing out and absorbing toxins from the bowel. These formulas are always the first step in healing any serious or chronic health difficulty.
Colon Detox Caps is a soothing, absorbing formula. With sponge-like action, it absorbs hundreds of different kinds of chemicals from the bowels, including pharmaceutical residues, waste products from parasites, toxins from harmful bacteria, heavy metals such as aluminum, lead, copper, mercury, and radioactive residues. It also helps to soothe any ulcerations in the intestinal tract from the stomach to the colon, and greatly accelerates healing of the intestinal lining. It also absorbs excess cholesterol from the intestines so that it cannot be recycled back into the bloodstream. Also wonderful for rejuvenating the intestines after antibiotic therapy.
This formula cleanses the small intestines (small colon) as well as the large intestines (colon). It is a very safe herbal formula for healing and rejuvenating the digestive system. To counteract food poisoning, it may be taken at double the normal dose.
Who Can Take It:
This formula may be taken by healthy individuals as well as those with health issues. It may safely be used by those with colostomies, those with portions of or the entire colon removed (do NOT take the Colon Activator Formula, Colon Start Plus or Vibrant Colon Formula in these instances, however), as well as those who have had the gallbladder removed. For constipation, it must be used in combination with the Vibrant Colon or the Colon Start Plus Formula since it may slow down the bowel slightly.
Who Shouldn't Take It:
Those who have ever had an allergic reaction to psyllium seed. Anyone who cannot swallow capsules.Cautions:
For moderately healthy persons, this formula is designed to use one week at a time every three to six months for healing and maintaining the health of the intestines. If there is serious disease present, it may require several weeks of taking the Intestinal Cleansing Formulas and adding on the Liver Regeneration Program, and blood purifying or immune enhancing herbal formulas. In the case of colitis, it could take up to three months of daily use in order to heal and regenerate the intestinal lining completely.
This formula should be taken on a relatively empty stomach. Ideal times are 1/2 hour or more before meals or one hour or more after meals, and at night time. Take eight to ten capsules with twelve to sixteen ounces of water or juice (fruit or vegetable). This formula has the same effects and suggested usage as the Colon Soothe Formula. This formula should be taken in a program that includes the Vibrant Colon or the Colon Start Plus Formula since it can cause constipation when taken at the full dose. However, at this dose, the Colon Detox Caps are the most effective at drawing out and absorbing toxins from the bowel.
Identical to the Colon Soothe Formula, but available in capsules for ease of use. However, it is this full dose of Colon Detox Caps that has the most powerful effect of drawing out and absorbing toxins from the bowel. When taken together these two formulas are deeply healing, anti inflammatory and detoxifying. 300 Vegi Caps
Clinical Tip: Among other benefits, this formula can prevent the Herxheimer reaction due to yeast die-off during an anti-Candida Program (use with Vibrant Colon or Colon Start Plus).
Ease heartburn/nausea/gas: About 15-30% of adults suffer from various functional dyspeptic conditions (indigestion, heartburn, nausea, stomach trouble, gastritis, peptic (stomach) ulcers, bloating, belching, and gas). To help with digestive difficulties such as hiatal hernia and GERD, these tonic herbs are invaluable. This pleasant- tasting formula can be taken every day with meals to help with digestion. It's also wonderful to help indigestion from those occasional overindulgences. I've never known anyone NOT to get relief from this formula.
Disadvantages of acid-blocking medications: Antacid and acid-blocking medications raise the pH of the stomach, making it more alkaline. Unfortunately, medical doctors know that this leaves the intestinal tract more susceptible to food poisoning (Shigella, etc.) and parasite infestations. The normal acid environment of the stomach kills parasite eggs. An alkaline stomach filled with antacids allows parasite eggs to harch. The herbs in the Digestive Tonic do not interfere with the natural acid balance of the stomach and therefore are much safer to ingest.
Suggested Usage: 1 to 2 droppers full as needed. In cases, of peptic ulcers, combines well with Colon Soothe Formula, aloe vera juice, and juicing. In cases of GERD/acid reflux, combines well the the Intestinal Rejuvenation Program or Intestinal Rejuvation Program - extra strength Colon Start Plus Formula to increase intestinal motility. GERD is associated with insufficient movement (motility) of the intestines. In cases of stomach ulcers, excellent when combined with Tummy Tea, aloe vera juice and juicing. This formula is gentle enough to use every day if needed.
Better Digestion = Better Health: About 15-30% of adults suffer from various functional dyspeptic conditions (indigestion, heartburn, nausea, stomach trouble, gastritis, peptic (stomach) ulcers, bloating, belching, and gas). These enzymes can be taken every day with meals to help with digestion. It can help indigestion due to consumption of dairy products (lactose intolerance), vegetables (meat eaters who have gas due to eating vegetables), beans, fatty foods such as ice cream, and from simply eating too much.
Other enzyme products on the market often include toxic ox bile and pancreatic enzymes. In animals, bile is a waste product that carries toxins from the liver. Yes, bile contains digestive enzymes, but it also contains cholesterol, saturated fats, heavy metals and oil-soluble toxins such as pesticides, fungicides, PCB's, herbicides, and other industrial contaminants that have been concentrated in an animal's liver (!) Hydrochloric acid comes from animals' stomachs and can cause damage to people who have stomach or duodenal ulcers. Our digestive enzyme blend contains very potent high amounts of safe vegetarian enzymes for a fraction of the cost of most enzyme products (for this quality, we have found similar enzyme products cost around $45). We are proud to offer this product at such a bargain!
Highest quality plant-based cultured enzymes active in a broad pH range (2 - 12) in the digestive tract:
Acid Stable Protease - 400 ASPU
Peptidase - 400 U
Protease - 45,000 HUT
Alpha Galactosidase - 150 GALU
Amylase - 12,000 SKB
Cellulase - 1,000 CU
Glucoamylase - 30 AG
Hemicellulase - 450 HCU
Invertase - 200 SU
Lactase - 400 LACU
Pectinase-Phytase - 25 endo-PG
Xylanase - 525 XU
Lipase - 600 FIP
Catalase - 100
L.acidophilus/B. bifidus - 1.2 billion CFU.
These enzymes and probiotics help digest plant foods, beans, fats, proteins, lactose and carbohydrates.
Disadvantages of acid-blocking medications: Prescription and over the counter antacid and acid-blocking medications raise the pH of the stomach,making it more alkaline. Unfortunately, medical doctors know that this alkaline pH in the stomach leaves the intestinal tract more susceptible to food poisoning (Shigella, etc.) and parasite infestations. The normal acid environment of the stomach kills parasite eggs. An alkaline stomach filled with antacids also allows parasite eggs to hatch. An alternative to these medications are plant-based enzymes.
The alternative: The plant-based enzymes in Digest Factor do not interfere with the natural acid balance of the stomach, help keep the stomach at its proper acidity, and therefore are much safer to ingest.
Suggested Usage: 1 capsule with meals. In cases of peptic ulcers, combines well with Colon Soothe Formula, aloe vera juice, and juicing. In cases of GERD/acid reflux, combines well the the Intestinal Rejuvenation Program or Intestinal Rejuvation Program - extra strength to increase intestinal motility. GERD is associated with insufficient movement (motility) of the intestines. After a meal, if heartburn arises, it can be soothed fairly quickly on the spot with the Colon Soothe Formula. In cases of stomach ulcers, excellent when combined with Tummy Tea, aloe vera juice and juicing. This formula is gentle enough to use every day if needed.
Flora-G, Flora-G Plus, Candida-G:
These formulas contain a very specific type of bacteria (Bacillus Coagulans) that acts as a very strong probiotic, far stronger than acidophilus or other types of lactobacillus strains.
Many mainstream medical doctors as well as natural health practitioners have long recognized that probiotics can often help people with digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diarrhea, gas, and bloating.
However, there is now a growing body of evidence that shows certain types of probiotics (specifically Bacillus Coagulans) can boost immune function to defend against infection in healthy people and lessen symptoms in people who have specific health issues.
A new research study  shows that taking Bacillus Coagulans regularly can boost the immune system in a specific way which helps the body resist infection with influenza A, the most serious type of influenza, and the common cold. This bacteria was found to cause significant increases in T-cell production of TNF-alpha, a key immune system activity marker, when health adults were exposed to influenza.
Researcher Mira Baron, MD, measured changes in blood TNF-alpha levels in 10 healthy adult volunteers before and after they took doses of the probiotic strain Bacillus coagulans daily and then were exposed to an influenza A virus and adenovirus (a virus that causes the common cold). Research participants took the probiotic daily for one month and then were exposed to the influenza virus. Their TNF-alphas levels were measured after the challenge and results showed a huge 1709 percent increase in TNF-alpha levels.
Dr. Baron explained that the initial, dramatic increase in the body's production of TNF-alpha in response to viral exposure shows a heightened immunological response aimed at protecting against infection.
The study did not evaluate an immune response to the specific swine flu virus, H1N1. However, There's reason to believe that Bacillus coagulans could boost the body's natural defenses to fight a variety of flu viruses, including swine flu.
THREE CLINICAL TRIALS:
Overall General Results of the Proprietary Component in our Flora G, Flora G Plus and Can G:
1. Yasuji Miki and Jiro Nishijima Pediatric Service, Osaka Municipal Sumiyoshi Citizens’ Hospital, Japan
50 cases of infantile diarrhea and constipation in 3 groups were seen on an outpatient basis. Children ranged in age from 5 days to 10 years old. Fecal improvement for both diarrhea and constipation cases was observed within 4 days, on average, after initiating therapy. In cases of constipation, it is noted that twice the dosage is required. The older the patient, the larger dose was needed. Some patients were given the antibiotics chloramphenicol, sulfa drugs and other antibiotics concurrently with good results.
2. Mitsuo Nakamura Pediatric Service, Tokushima City Hospital, Japan
Clinical experience in treating 51 cases of infantile diarrhea and 3 cases of constipation with an active spore-forming lactic acid- producing probiotic. Infants ranged in age from 16 days to 3 years old, & were fed on various diets including breastmilk, infant formula, weaning foods, and common foods. With at least 50 million CFU’s per tablet (10 mg), 1 to 2 tablets were administered daily in 3 or 4 doses without using any other drugs (except for occasional use of fever- reducing medications). Within 2 to 12 days, most cases had resolved. Effective response was obtained 40 out of the 51 cases of infantile diarrhea; several cases of constipation. All cases of constipation resolved, but recurred when probiotic was discontinued. No side effects or other adverse reactions were reported.
3. Pediatric Clinic, Akita Municipal General Hospital, Japan
Infants with diarrhea were seen in the outpatient clinic, and ranged in age from 3 months, to 1 year and 4 months. Dose was 0.5 to 1.5 mg given in 3 to 4 divided doses throughout the day. The nature of stools began to improve the following day: frequency of bowel movements reduced to ˝ observed within 2 to 3 days. Excellent and good outcome in 19 out of 20 cases.
Helps nausea/ motion sickness can help lower lipid levels: Ginger root is a tonic herb that has been researched for its many effects including its ability to combat nausea, morning sickness, motion sickness 22 and as a therapy and as a preventative for migraines23(through its ability to inhibit platelet aggregation).
It has also been studied for its cholesterol-lowering abilities. A 50% alcohol extract of ginger was given to hyperlipidemic rabbits (rabbits with high cholesterol readings). Results showed a reduction in total cholesterol and serum LDL-cholesterol. Liver, heart, and aorta tissue lipids also showed favorable changes.24
Ginger has historically been used to relieve indigestion. Studies show that it increases intestinal enzyme activity (lipase, sucrase, and maltase)25 which improves digestion. The scientific literature stresses that the effectiveness of ginger is obtained without any side effects. It is considered a tonic herb that is safe to take on a daily basis over the long term.
Suggested usage: one dropper full 3 times daily
Detox Chai Spice:
Natural Coffee Replacement/Whole Body Tonic: Originally intended to be a coffee replacement, this organic and naturally caffeine-free organic herbal tea has a very rich "coffee-like flavor." It contains carminative herbs that normalize digestion, herbs that help regenerate the liver, herbs that heal the kidneys, and herbs that purify the bloodstream. The formula originates from yogis in India who have used it for thousands of years on a regular basis as a tonic to keep healthy.
Who Can Take It: This formula may be taken by healthy individuals as well as those with health issues. It may safely be used by those who have had the gallbladder removed.
Who Shouldn't Take It: Those who have ever had an allergic reaction to any of the herbal ingredients. Those who are in chronic kidney failure or on dialysis may need to watch their fluid intake, using the bare minimum of fluids suggested.
It is commonly used along with L/GB Formula (see below) in the Liver Regeneration Program,
although it may also be consumed as a tonic on a daily basis just because it tastes great!
Drink two cups in the morning about 15 minutes after consuming the morning juice drink. Drink an additional four cups throughout the day.
If not diabetic, this herbal tea can be sweetened with pure Grade B maple syrup or raw unheated honey. (It tastes delicious this way!)
For moderately healthy persons, this formula is designed to use one week at a time every three to six months for healing and maintaining the health of the liver and gallbladder.
If there is serious disease present, it may require several weeks of taking the Intestinal cleansing Formulas and the Liver Regeneration Program, the Kidney Revitalizing Program, and blood purifying or immune enhancing herbal formulas.
This is a root and bark tea that should be simmered for at least 15 minutes in order to extract its active properties. It is not designed to be used with teaballs. Just simmer the tea for the required time and then strain into (a) mug(s).
When the liver is clogged with toxic residues, it cannot release needed enzymes to digest fatty foods. Many cases of chronic constipation can be traced back to a sluggish, toxin-filled liver. Taking liver/gallbladder herbs has helped many with this problem, yet none of these herbs are laxatives, and they are not addictiveActions: This formula begins the body's process of ridding itself of old, thickened residues located in the liver and gallbladder.
Who Can Take it:
This formula is helpful for anyone wishing to improve the function of the liver and gallbladder. It is also beneficial for those with high cholesterol, hepatitis, gallstones, brain diseases, hormonal imbalances, and constipation. Those who have had the gallbladder removed may also take it since the formula works not just on the gallbladder, but also on the liver.
Those Who Shouldn't Take It:
Take one to two droppers full three to five times daily. This is a suggested guideline. This formula can be taken like bitters, used daily to help liver conditions, or for maximum benefits, it can also used as part of the Five-Day Liver Regeneration Program. The dose may need to be decreased or increased depending on the individual body metabolism and results obtained. Those without gallbladders may wish to start with the lowest dose and increase it gradually if all goes well. The dose may be put into the Detox Chai Spice tea (one dropper full to each cup of Detox Chai Spice tea). Children can also take this formula but at lower doses depending on their weight. Instructions on how to convert an adult dose to a child's dose is included with each order. For animals weighing more than 150 pounds, the dose will of course be larger than the adult dose. Mild and safe blood thinning action by itself; however, it should not be combined with prescription blood thinning medication.
Sometimes in the process of doing a strong healing routine, the body must go through certain actions in order to heal itself. The body may need a bit more rest during this routine. The most common noticeable effect is a bit of fatigue, yet others feel fine. When the program has been completed, there is usually a higher energy level than before starting the program. If there is arthritis, the joint pain may temporarily worsen during the routine, but then afterwards be improved better than before. If there is too much discomfort during the program, the dose of L/GB Formula can simply be decreased for a day. It may well be possible to continue at a lower dose for the five days. Continue taking the Intestinal Formulas (Vibrant Colon and Colon Detox Caps) in order to absorb and eliminate any remaining toxins that have been loosened up by this routine.
Herbal Quality Tip: Herbs for the liver and gallbladder should taste bitter. The bitter taste activates the liver and gallbladder. If taking bitters or herbs for the liver or gallbladder and they do not taste bitter, then the quality is poor.
Protects liver from alcohol, medications, drugs and other toxins: Many human studies have been performed using milk thistle extract. According to many of these very plentiful research studies, silymarin, an extract of milk thistle (Silybum marianum) has antioxidant as well as liver protective effects.26 Silymarin consists of the compounds silibinin, isosilibinin, silicristin and silidianin. It possesses antioxidant properties and has been used for treatment of liver damage caused by alcohol, drugs, or other toxins such as alcohol, medications, poisonous mushrooms, organophophate pesticides. Silymarin is well-documented for its liver-treating activities and is considered the best treatment for liver therapy.27
Improves liver function tests: In cases of liver damage, milk thistle has been shown repeatedly to lower abnormally elevated liver function tests (transaminases) without causing side effects. It has also been found to reduce the formation of new scar tissue in the liver such as occurs with cirrhosis of the liver and biliary fibrosis (scarring of the liver and gallbladder ducts).36 No known reactions with other herbs or medications
Improves liver damage: It has been shown to improve liver damage caused by chronic active hepatitis28, alcoholic hepatitis 29,30, amanita (poisonous mushroom) poisoning 31, 32, chronic alcoholic liver disease 29, cirrhosis 33, hepatitis B infection, hepatitis C infection 29, high cholesterol, gallbladder infection 30, medications such as antidepressants 34, antischizophrenic medication, erythromycin 34, painkillers, and anticonvulsant seizure medication, carbon tetrachloride, acetaminophen 35, and organophosphate pesticides.
Clinical Tip: Begin taking as soon as possible after it is known that there is hepatitis in order to stop the inflammation from getting worse, and to keep the liver transplant surgeons away.
Helps Clear Excess Fat and Cholesterol, Helps Clear Skin:
Cholagogue herbs help stimulate the healthy flow of bile from the liver. Cholagogue herbs activate the liver to increase its effectiveness at clearing fats, toxins, and cholesterol out of the bloodstream. When the liver is sluggish or clogged, it cannot produce or process cholesterol properly. The result is a backlog of cholesterol from the liver into the bloodstream and an overproduction of cholesterol by the liver. Studies repeatedly show the effectiveness of fiber (such as contained in the Colon Detox Caps and the Colon Soothe Formula) to pull excess cholesterol out of the circulation.
Benefits:The red clover helps to clear the bloodstream of cholesterol as well as other toxins. Toxins in the bloodstream typically erupt out onto the skin as rashes, eczema, psoriasis, boils or pimples. These problems usually respond well to the formula, especially when used for at least two months.Risks of Prescription Cholesterol-Lowering Medications: according to the Physician's Desk Reference, the most notable side effect is liver damage. Liver damage commonly leads to high cholesterol. These drugs cause just enough of an improvement to cause a dependence on them. This is a big reason why no one ever gets off of these drugs. The liver damage shows up as elevated liver enzyme levels on a blood test. The main reason why a doctor says "we need to check your blood from time to time while you're taking this medications" is to check for liver damage. By the time the blood test shows an abnormality, the damage has already been done. It is possible that very subtle damage is also going on that cannot be detected by blood tests. This is enough to cause a high cholesterol problem to continue. These medications are typically detoxified in the liver and work by interfering with the normal functioning of the liver. They do not and cannot cleanse cholesterol or fats from the liver. Medical doctors admit they cannot cure high cholesterol, but merely treat the symptoms.
Suggested usage: one to two droppers full three to four times daily. This formula can be taken daily for long periods of time if needed. For skin conditions, use the same dose and add flax seed meal or oil into the diet. (Many skin conditions result from a toxic liver). This formula combines well with Essential Nutrients. For deeper healing, do the Intestinal Rejuvenation Program and/or the Liver Regeneration Program and take Essential Nutrients. Cholesterol-Free Cookbooks: The No Cholesterol (No Kidding) Cookbook, Instead of Chicken, Instead of Turkey, and May All Be Fed.
Clinical Tip: Maximum benefits are obtained when taken as a daily maintenance formula after completing the Liver Regeneration Program.
Stimulates urination, dissolves kidney stones and cleanses urinary tract: Herbalists classify herbs that promote the flow of urine as diuretic herbs. These herbs help to cleanse, nourish and regenerate the kidneys, bladder and entire urinary tract. Some of the herbs in this formula, Hydrangea and gravel root, are classic herbs used by herbalists to safely dissolve kidney stones without bleeding, to safely and gently dissolve gallstones and to relieve incontinence. The addition of slippery, soothing herbs helps to coat and protect the urinary tract lining from sharp edges of any stones in the urinary tract. I've had clients with kidney stones so bad, they were already scheduled for surgery. With this tea, they were able to avoid it altogether while they "cleansed" away their stones naturally.
Who Can Take It: This formula may be taken by healthy individuals as well as those with health issues. Anyone who wants or needs to improve their urination.
Who Shouldn't Take It: Those who have ever had an allergic reaction to any of the herbal ingredients.
Risks of lithotripsy: this common medical procedure involves sending sound waves into a kidney stone in order to break it up into little pieces which can then be eliminated through the urine. These pieces are small but very sharp. This commonly causes blood in the urine as the tiny fragments cut into and damage the delicate urinary membranes on the way out of the body. Sometimes the blood happens as the result of healthy kidney tissue that was damaged during the lithotripsy due to the fact that it is very difficult to aim the sound waves at just the kidney stone without affecting some of the surrounding healthy kidney tissue.Suggested Usage: Drink two cups in the morning about 15 minutes after drink the morning juice drink. Drink an additional four cups throughout the day for a total of 6 cups per day.
How long it will last: This formula should last for one week to two weeks if taken at the normal dose of 6 cups per day.
Clinical Tip: For the fastest possible healing of the kidneys and urinary tract, combine the Kidney / Bladder formulas with a juicing program.
Who Can Take it: This formula is helpful for anyone wishing to improve the function of the kidneys and bladder. It is also beneficial for those with gout, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure, kidney stones, enlarged prostate, water retention, and those who have difficulty with urination. I've never seen this formula fail to relieve a urinary tract infection.
Those Who Shouldn't Take It: Pregnant women proceed with caution, taking the lowest doses and only if there is an urgent condition that cannot be helped with other routines.
How long it will last: at the average adult dose, around 2 weeks.
Sometimes in the process of doing a strong healing routine, the body can accomplish amazing feats such as clearing
out toxic residues that cause disease. During these times, the body must go through certain actions in order to heal
itself. This is a "retracing" process during which the body goes through a reversal of the disease condition by
re-experiencing old symptoms from the past while it is healing.
The body may need a bit more rest during this routine. The most common effect noticed is a bit of fatigue, yet others feel fine. If there is arthritis, the joint pain may temporarily worsen during the routine, but then afterwards be improved better than before. During this routine, if the kidneys and bladder are highly toxic (when a person has never done a kidney/Bladder cleanse before and there are years of accumulated toxins there), there may be a temporary burning sensation when urinating as the acidic wastes are now coming out of these organs and being released through the urine. This is a very good sign that means the formula is working. It will disappear when the routine has been completed.
If there is too much discomfort (usually it's only a problem with the first cleanse), the dose of the Kidney/ Bladder Formula can simply be decreased or eliminated for a day. It may be possible to continue at a lower dose for the remaining days of the program. It is best to continue taking the Vibrant Colon Formula (or Colon Start Plus) and Colon Detox Caps in order to soak up and eliminate any remaining toxins that have been loosened up by this routine. These intestinal formulas usually prevent most healing reactions. This is why its ideal to do the entire program together the first time a kidney/bladder cleanse is attempted. Future cleanses are typically much easier as there are now less urinary toxins.
Can Help Fatigue, Low Libido, Allergies: In the Amazon, Suma is used to help exhaustion, chronic fatigue, hormonal disorders, diabetes, high blood pressure, rheumatism, arthritis, infertility, menopause, impotence, frigidity, mononucleosis, allergies, and digestive disorders.
15 to 30 drops two to three times daily. Not to be taken after 6 PM. For even more energy, add Essential Nutrients.
Clinical Tips: Adrenal troubles often respond to adaptogens. Regular deep breathing exercises have a calming influence that can help long term stress. The adrenals may take months to completely repair and rebuild themselves, depending how long a person has been under stress. Adrenal Fatigue is the first stage, and eventually adrenal exhaustion can occur after years of chronic unrelenting stress. Some results should be noticed immediately (an increase in energy and/or libido), and if the formula is continued for several months along with stress reduction, stress-reducing techniques, adequate rest, and avoidance of caffeine, the adrenal glands can eventually recover. The tendency is to indulge in sweets, coffee and sugar for quick energy. It's far healthier for the adrenals to get energy from herbs, superfoods and superfood supplementation.
Dramatically improves sex drive: A stimulating, energizing formula for the woman who needs more zip and libido. Many cases of low sex drive are caused by hormonal imbalance. This well-balanced formula combines the well-known libido-enhancers damiana and oat seed with female hormone-balancing herbs. The result is very exciting. Also very helpful for rebuilding endocrine organs whose function is too sluggish (such as in hypothyroidism). For slow thyroid due to any cause, this formula brings much needed balance and energy.
Suggested usage: one to two droppers full 3-4 times daily. For even more energy, add Essential Nutrients. Thyroid troubles often respond to Cayenne, additional sea vegetables and liver healing herbs such as the Five Day Liver Regeneration Program. The thyroid may take months to completely repair and rebuild itself. Some results should be noticed immediately, and if the formula is continued for several months, the thyroid gland can regain much of its lost function. See also Adrenal Support.
Female Harmony (formerly Ms Formula):
Coffee-Almond Cream Delight with Female Harmony and Three Roots TeaCorrects hormonal imbalances: For younger women with hormonal imbalances such as PMS, menstrual irregularities, abnormal bleeding, endometriosis, fibroid tumors of the uterus, and ovarian cysts. It helps to soothe anxiety and ease water retention experienced during those difficult times of the month. Because it works on all of the endocrine organs at once, not just the ovaries, many people have noticed that it can help to rebuild all of the endocrine organs over time (pituitary gland, pancreas, adrenal glands, thyroid gland, parathyroid, thymus, ovaries and testes). Those with other hormonal imbalances due to malfunctioning of the endocrine glands (such as overactive thyroid and diabetes mellitus) have found it very helpful.
These herbs can be taken not just by women, but also by men who experience problems with the endocrine organs.
Suggested usage: To help with PMS each month, take for 10 days before menstrual period begins, and then stop once
the menstrual period begins. To help heal reproductive organs in cases of infertility, take 1 dropper full three times daily
for the first month and then 2 droppers full three times daily thereafter until conception occurs. For best results with all
female disturbances use as part of the Natural Fertility Program and castor oil packs over the
pelvic area to dissolve blockages. For infertility due to the male, use the same formulas. (Men can also take this formula -
it will not make them more feminine, but it will help balance their hormonal system). For best results with infertility,
both partners should do basic cleansing programs, no matter whose "fault" it is. For severe or incurable female
diseases, use the 28-Day Healing Program.
Help for Menopause: More than 40 million American women are 50 or older, and 20 million more will reach menopause within the next decade. Women in menopause need extra endocrine support. In addition to the wild yam, chasteberry and dong quai, sage and black cohosh help specifically with hot flashes. This formula has been known to balance hormones, even in cases of complete hysterectomy with ovaries surgically removed.
Herbs are safer than synthetic hormonal medications: One of the herbs in this formula, Licorice root extract, has been used by many traditional healers to reduce the symptoms of menopause. An Israeli research study confirmed the estrogenic effects of this herb, attributing the effect to the components glabrene and isoliquiritigenin.62 However, unlike synthetic estrogen, licorice did not increase growth of breast cancer cells, but acted in a beneficial way to inhibit them.
Researchers have identified a component in hops flowers - 8-Prenylnaringenin - that has an even stronger effect than genistein (a phytoestrogen derived from soy)63 This is good news for those who are not helped by traditional soy supplements for menopause. This component had effects even on rats who had both ovaries surgically removed.
Conventional hormone replacement therapy can be dangerous: It is associated with many serious risks including higher risk of heart disease, stroke, gallbladder problems, blood clots and female cancers. They come from an unnatural source. Premarin gets its name from the phrase "pregnant mare's urine." The most research shows that Hormone Replacement Therapy does not protect against heart attacks or strokes, but rather increases their risk during the first four years of use.
Herbs do not have these side effects and are a much safer choice for the hormonal transitioning that occurs during menopause. Concerns about osteoporosis can be addressed with the bone building formulas Essential Nutrients and the Calcium From Herbs. It is also important to avoid caffeine and soft drinks, to do regular weight-bearing exercise and to follow a vegetarian diet. Research confirms that women who follow a vegetarian diet have higher bone density after menopause than those who eat meat.
Suggested usage: one to two droppers full 1 to 3 times daily. Most effective if taken just before the usual time that hot flashes occur. (keep a symptom diary so you'll know when the hot flashes usually happen. For deeper healing, do the Liver Regeneration Program. For those who went too early into premature menopause, this formula can bring back menstrual periods and sometimes, fertility, until it is truly the right time for menopause to begin.
Clinical Tip: this formula may be taken in a larger dose just before the time of day it is anticipated that hot flashes usually occur (for example, take just before bedtime if hot flashes occur at night)
Support for nursing mothers: These herbs contain phytoestrogens that stimulate milk production. Many women cannot nurse because the baby has used up so many minerals in the bother's body that she has hardly any left for milk production. These herbs not only stimulate milk production, but provide high amounts of minerals needed in order to produce breast milk. I prefer loose tea over tea bags because the quality is higher. Herbs sold in tea bags must be cut very finely, and they are oxidized very rapidly.
Suggested usage: Many times, a woman needs not only herbs, but extra strength nutritional support. For additional strength, combine with Essential Nutrients. Women on these formulas tend to produce copious amounts of breast milk while nursing. These "green" nutritional formulas can mean all the difference between producing a little and producing a lot of breast milk.
Ingredients: Red Raspberry leaf, Nettle leaf, Fennel seed, Chamomile flower, Oat top, Fenugreek seed, Blessed Thistle herb, Alfalfa leaf
Help for impotence and low sex drive: High octane fuel for those who want to revitalize their potency. This formula is very potent and should not be taken in higher than recommended doses or the result is prolonged penile erections. High quality 7-year-old ginseng has been prized by Asians for thousands of years for its ability to enhance sex drive and endurance. Saw palmetto has been shown in numerous research studies to help shrink the prostate and to improve its function.
Since it is a stimulating formula, and due to the yohimbe content, it is NOT for those with heart conditions or those with panic disorder. In those with heart disease and impotence, the impotence can only be helped by healing the heart and circulation since impotence in these men is directly caused by poor circulation (use juicing, Healthy Heart Formula and/or Cayenne to help heal the heart).
For those that can't take the Male Magnetism Formula, straight Damiana tincture is available. This herb stimulates the sex drive without any of the stimulating effects of yohimbe. See also Adrenal Support Formula.
Risks of Viagra: according to the prestigious Cedar Sinai hospital research, the risks of the prescription drug Viagra currently includes at least 522 deaths, 119 strokes, 53 cases of congestive heart failure, 255 cases of abnormal heart rhythm or sudden death, and 271 episodes of sudden low blood pressure. There are also reports of permanent penile damage caused by the unnecessarily harsh effects of the drug.
Suggested usage: one to two droppers full 3 times daily. Do not exceed recommended dosage.
Helps shrink and soothe enlarged and inflamed prostate tissues: One of the herbs in this formula, Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens), has been found repeatedly by clinical researchers around the world to be equally effective in treatment of BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia),37 but also can be powerful for other prostate problems such as prostatitis68 and prostate cancer.69 Saw palmetto has proven itself numerous times to shrink prostate enlarged prostate tissue, relieve prostate inflammation and improve urinary symptoms in many controlled clinical trials. It has been proven to be just as effective as the prostate drug finasteride, but has fewer side effects. This Prostate Formula also contains urinary tract herbs to ease difficult urination. A blessing for those who must get up many times during the night to urinate.
Prostate surgery has many risks: Medical doctors, after performing the common prostate operation for prostate enlargement (TURP) have noticed that they must repeat this invasive procedure many times over the years. This is due to not getting at the cause of the problem, but merely giving a quick temporary fix. Five years after surgery, 10-20% of men will have to have the TURP repeated. In cases of prostate cancer, complications of prostatectomy (surgical removal of the prostate gland) include impotence, incontinence, urinary tract infection, and prostate bleeding. Radiation can lead to massive internal scarring of the pelvic area which could cause life-threatening complications.
Surgical and medical treatment options for prostate cancer are not much better. They include castration - either surgical or with hormone-blocking medications. Hormone-blocking medications frequently cause hot flashes and sweats and can cause obstruction of the ureter (urinary tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body), or compression of the spinal cord leading to permanent paralysis of the lower limbs. Just as women approaching menopause have hot flashes and night sweats as result of declining hormone levels, blocking them in men can lead to the same symptoms. Researchers have noted that long term treatment with hormone-blocking medications in men commonly causes decreased bone density. Decreased bone density is normally associated with osteoposis and increased risk of bone fractures. Herbs for the prostate do not have these particular side effects.
Suggested usage: two to three droppers full 3 to 4 times daily of the Prostate Formula:. For deeper healing, do the Kidney/Bladder Revitalization Program, and then use the Adrenal Support Formula to help rebuild this endocrine organ. An organic plant-based diet works very well with these formulas and increases the speed of healing. For prostate stones, take this formula in combination with the Kidney/Bladder Revitalization Program and juicing. For very severe problems, use in combination with the 28-Day Healing Program. See also Stone Buster and Stone Dissolve Tea and the Simplified Stone Cleanse
Supports proper bowel function: Contains bitter, cathartic herbs that have beneficial cleansing effects on the blood, liver and large and small intestines. This formula also contains slippery elm to soothe irritated intestines and prevent the burning sensations that cayenne can cause during bowel movements. cleanse the small and large intestine. This is our garlic-free, heartburn-free formula (Garlic in a formula can cause heartburn in sensitive individuals).
Taken by itself, this formula is a milder cleanse that is an alternative to the full 2 product Intestinal Rejuvenation Program. Excellent for those who don't have time to do a full colon cleanse. It is designed to be used with the Colon Detox Caps (or the Colon Soothe Formula). These two formulas work together in a balanced way to stimulate, strengthen, rejuvenate and regenerate the intestinal lining. The goal of this formula is to get the bowel working at least once for each meal eaten during the day. This is the way normal, disease-free bowels function (in infants, and in countries where only unprocessed foods are consumed).
Who Can Take it: This formula is helpful for anyone wishing to improve the function of the intestines and liver.
Those Who Shouldn't Take It: Those who are currently having diarrhea. This formula is too strong for children to use, with the rare exception of extreme constipation (e.g. Hirschsprung's Disease)
Suggested Usage: As part of the Intestinal Rejuvenation Program, take one capsule with dinner the first evening. This formula takes around 12 to 14 hours to work. The goal is to have one bowel movement for each major meal eaten throughout the day. For example, if you eat 2 meals a day, you should have two bowel movements a day. If, after the first day, you do not notice a change in the quantity or frequency of the bowel movements, then take 2 capsules on that second evening. If you do not notice results after the third day, then increase to 3 capsules with dinner that third night. If you still don't notice results after the third night, continue to increase the number of capsules taken with dinner to one more capsule than the dose you took the night before. Do this until your bowels are moving at least once for every meal you eat during the day. Note: do not increase the dose if your bowels are moving once for each meal you eat.
Once you've gotten to the point where bowels are moving once for each meal eaten during the day (whether that's one capsule with dinner, or up to twenty capsules with dinner), then stay on the dose that has this effect, and begin the Colon Detox Caps (or the Colon Soothe Formula), only increasing the Colon Start Plus Formula by one more capsule if needed.
During this program, the bowel movements should be soft, large and easy to eliminate. The consistency should be like the consistency of smooth peanut butter.
What's Normal for Bowel Consistency? Many people are used to being constipated, and they wrongly assume that this consistency is diarrhea when they do this routine. However, if you experience watery diarrhea at any time, this means you took too many capsules.
How long it will last: at an average of 3 capsules per day = 1 month supply. Typical duration is one to two weeks.Combined with other cleanses: Can be combined with other cleanses such as the Simplified Stone Cleanse, Kidney Revitalization Program or the Liver Regeneration Program.
Disease Is One Of The Best Things That Has Happened To Me;
It has Pulled Me Out Of A Quietly Desperate Life
