I think these conditions require introduction to cleansing periodically. Also what helps are the elimination diet protocols to find out the foods or food categories that are causing distress and contributing to spasms in the gut that result in constipation events. Of course probiotics and prebiotics with enzymes are an additional tool. Essentially Digestive Stimulator, or a natural laxative at night only that can sometimes allow the dietary changes to become more effective while introducing probiotics / prebiotics help to control pH and fermentation of the gut. The main basis is to introduce a protocol that is on and off of the natural laxative but in no way allow reliance until the vitality of the gut becomes stronger on its own. Perhaps use natural prunes in the diet occasionally and FOS containing foods to help improve the condition. With any chronic conditions, take gentle care and attention with oversight of elimination diet protocols and diet dairies.
Ask The Herbalist
- You could use these teas each day without doing harm.
- Take both of them together is OK up to 2-3 times a day for a time such as 6-8 weeks with a pause from that regimen
- Or take these separately with the Yerba Mate-Green Tea-Ginseng in the morning and Dandelion Root tea by itself at lunchtime or after higher fat meals.
- Try to experiment with flavors such as honey, almond milk or simple herb additions like Cinnamon to the Dandelion Root and Leaf to take the bitter edge off of the tea.
Is there an herb that would be efficacious mixed with the chlorophyll that would give me that tonic effect?
Sure, one suggestion is to:
- First grind up some flax seed, then add ginger, fennel + licorice.
- Place in a saucepan with water and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Strain and collect.
- Add to the chlorophyll.
Optional: Maybe add Pineapple Juice as a fruit mask with a sprinkle of peppermint
Which do u recommend? I am considering purchasing the internal cleansing and Colon cleanse or getting a colonic.
If you have parasites, leaky gut, deficiencies and others you first need to discuss options with your health care provider. Blessed Herbs cleanses are not intended to treat or cure any of these ailments and depending on what "other things" they could be (quite frankly) good or bad for you. Our Colon Cleanse is designed to cleanse the colon and only the colon itself. Our Para Cleanse is designed to assist with parasites alone. Our internal cleanse cleanses not only your Colon (it comes with a Colon Cleanse Kit) but also all of your other eliminatory organs: skin, lungs, blood, kidney, bladder, gallbladder, etc. I would suggest showing the supplement facts of one of the cleanses to your doctor to ensure it will not affect anything else you may be taking.
I just completed your colon cleanse but I have leftover Digestive Stimulators, should I continue taking them?Digestive Stimulators anymore and you will be eliminating on your own. Keeping a mixed diet rich in greens, grains, fibers and appropriate water intake should do the trick just fine on its own. - James Sullivan, N.D. Read More

parasite and colon cleanses are designed to help you eliminate three times per day. If you are not eliminating that frequently it is first recommended to increase your water intake, and then try increasing the number of Digestive Stimulators. If you are still not eliminating like you should you can do a coffee enema to help stimulate elimination. It is not harmful to do this to help here or there but should not become routine or the only way to get you to eliminate. Also ensure you are taking probiotics as well as an enema not only clears out the waste but the good bacteria as well so it is imperative to replenish this. If you are still having troubles eliminating you should consult with your personal physician. - James Sullivan, N.D. Read More

soothing tea that contains ginger for the nausea conditions. It may help to include some type of alkaline minerals such as Calcium Carbonate and Sodium Bicarbonate supplement if available at a health food store. Some soothing herbals could include Aloe Vera, Marshmallow and Barley. Try a relaxation tea occasionally that would have Chamomile or Licorice. Dietary recommendations:
- Eat smaller meals more often.
- Avoid fried or fatty foods.
- Limit intake of stimulants such as coffee, alcohol, cigarettes and carbonated beverages.
