Overview

Is it really that important to cleanse the colon?                      YES!

  • Dr. Bernard Jensen, D.C., Ph.D., Nutritionist, writes, “In the 50 years I’ve spent helping people to overcome illness, disability and disease, it has become crystal clear that poor bowel management lies at the root of most people’s health problems. In treating over 300,000 patients, it is the bowel that invariably has to be cared for before any healing can take place.”
  • The colon is part of the large intestine, the final part of the digestive system.
    • There are four sections of the colon. It represents about twenty percent of the digestive tract and is roughly five feet long.
      • The four sections are the descending colon, ascending colon, transverse colon, and sigmoid colon.
    • The colon has two main tasks or functions.
      • First is to remove and process any nutrients remaining in the digested material that just moved through the rest of the digestive tract.
      • Second is to reabsorb fluids and process the waste products by preparing fecal matter for elimination. It truly has the dirtiest job of the digestive tract.

What causes the colon to function poorly?

  • Starchy, processed, sugary foods are a serious problem for the colon to handle.
  • Sedentary (inactive) lifestyles are another contributor to colons that don't function properly.
  • Lack of fiber (fresh vegitables, fruit and whole grains) in a daily diet.

What happens in the colon when it stops functioning properly?

  • If the colon or bowel system isn’t working properly... not everything gets pushed out.
    • Gradually the residue coats the walls of the colon with some of the world’s best glue.
      • The glue keeps the nourishment from getting to the bloodstream.
    • The waste can become a toxic liquid and gets back into the bloodstream.
  • Every tissue in the body is fed by the bloodstream, so when the colon becomes toxic we have a condition where the body is fed toxins rather than nutrients.
    • Logically this taxes the immune system and verify's Dr Bernard Jensen's statement that "the bowel [colon] invariably has to be cared for before any healing can take place.”
    • A toxic colon produces undesirable consequences and is the root cause of many of today’s health issues.  


Herbs that contribute to colon health
.
Senna Seed:
  • Traditionally people in northern Africa and southwestern Asia have used senna as a laxative for centuries. It was considered a "cleansing" herb because of its cathartic (purging - cleansing) effect.
  • Senna is an FDA-approved over-the-counter (OTC) laxative. A prescription is not required to purchase senna. It is used to treat constipation and also to clear the bowel before diagnostic tests such as colonoscopy.
  • Senna contains many chemicals called sennosides. Sennosides affect the lining of the bowel, which causes a laxative effect.
  • In a report titled; Is Senna Laxative Use Associated to Cathartic Colon, Genotoxicity, or Carcinogenicity?  Published online 2009 Sep 10. doi: 10.1155/2009/287247 in The Journal of Toxicology it states: 'Due to their natural origin, apparent low oral toxicity, effectiveness, and accessibility without a medical prescription, the [sennoside] laxatives are a popular remedy for constipation.'
Cascara Sagrada:
  • The literal Spanish translation of Cascara Segrada is Sacred Bark.
    • This is the name given to the plant by the Spanish Priests.
      • There are two possible reasons for the name.
      • One is that the bark was dried and used as a laxative or purgative by the priests.
      • The other is that the wood closely resembles the wood used to build the ark of the covenant.
  • Cascara Sagrada has active componants called anthraquinones. These are thought to be the reason that Cascara is an effective laxative. They stimulate the peristoltic muscles and thereby assist in the elimination of fecal matter from the colon.
  • Constipation relief is cascara sagrada’s best known possible benefit. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
  • A 2002 study published in Life Sciences researched the effects of aloe-emodin, a component of cascara, on two human liver cancer cell lines, Hep G2 and Hep 3B. The researchers found that aloe-emodin inhibited cancer cell proliferation and induced apoptosis (programmed cell death) in both cell lines, concluding that aloe-emodin “may be useful in liver cancer prevention.” (Study Link
Aloe Vera:
  • Aloe vera has been known for its healing properties for at least 6,000 years. In the early days, the plant was known for being a “plant of immortality” and was presented to Egyptian pharaohs as a funeral gift.
  • Over time, groups from many geographical areas have used aloe vera, including Indians, Chinese, Mexicans, and North Americans.
  • There are two medicinally useful parts of the aloe vera plant.
    • First, the leaves are filled with a clear gel. This gel is extracted from the plant and usually used on the skin to treat burns and various skin conditions. The gel can also be found in liquid or capsule form and taken orally.
    • The second substance the plant produces is called aloe latex. This is the yellow pulp that’s found just under the outer part of the plant leaf. Aloe latex has been shown to have laxative properties, and it’s usually taken orally to treat constipation.
  • Aloe latex contains aloin, which is an anthraquinone that gives aloe vera its laxative properties and may help treat constipation. (NIH Report Link)
  • The healing properties and the laxative properties of Aloe Vera are both vital in the process of a healthy colon cleanse.
Gentian:
  • Gentian (Gentiana lutea) is a bitter herb that has been used as a traditional medicine throughout Europe for over 2,000 years.
  • Gentian is a bitter herb thought to stimulate digestion by increasing saliva production and promoting stomach acid and digestive enzyme production.
  • There’s some evidence that Gentian can stimulate the secretion of enzymes in the small intestines and increase gastric secretion, which makes breaking down foods and absorbing nutrients easier.
Calendula:
  • Calendula is known to have anti-inflammatory properties because of the flavonoids that the plant possesses. These plant-based antioxidants protect cells from free radical damage and inflammatory compounds like C-reactive protein and cytokines according to a report published by authors (KC Preethi, G Kuttan and R Kuttan in the Indian J Exp Biol. 2009 Feb;47(2):113-20.)
  • Calendula has been found to be effective in the healing process of ulcers and hemorrhoids because it helps increase blood flow and oxygen to wounds and infected areas, which helps the body grow new tissue and heal more rapidly according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
Butternut Bark: 
  • Butternut bark is not from the squash like one would think. The butternut bark actually come from the White Walnut Tree. Its natural habitat is in the northeast portion of North America.
  • The Native Americans used the bark of the tree to treat constipation and bacterial infections. The Europeans learned of and adopted the use of Butternut Bark from those Native Americans.
  • Traditionally people take butternut for constipation, gallbladder disorders, hemorrhoids, and skin diseases. It has also been used for infections caused by bacteria and parasites. Some people use butternut as “a tonic.”
  • Butternut bark has mild cathartic properties and was used medicinally. During the American Revolution, a butternut extract made from the inner bark of the tree was used in an attempt to prevent smallpox, and to treat dysentery and other stomach and intestinal discomfort. (Thatcher, James, M.D. A Military Journal During the American Revolutionary War. Boston: Cottons & Barnard, 1827. Page 251.)
Licorice Root:
  • Centuries ago, licorice root was used in Greece, China, and Egypt for stomach inflammation and upper respiratory problems.
  • Licorice root also has been used as a sweetener.
  • The traditions of the past have carried over into modern times. Today, people use licorice root as a dietary supplement for digestive problems, menopausal symptoms, cough, and bacterial and viral infections.
  • In one study, a traditional Iranian herbal preparation containing licorice and other herbs was found to significantly improve chronic constipation compared to a placebo. (Study Link)
  • According to one study published in the Chinese Journal of Virology, "The triterpenoids of licorice have the potential to become a novel broad-spectrum antiviral medicine and will be widely used in the clinical treatment." (Study Link)

I Feel Clean Inside
I have had issues with my digestion and metabolism for the past few years and within days of taking Grandma's Herbs All Natural Herbal Colon Cleanser & Tonic - All Natural Cleanse - 100 Capsules along withSUPER LAX - Natural Laxative - 100 Capsules I noticed a substantial difference in my bowel. I actually do feel clean inside again. I even flushed a few extra pounds, which was nice. I would recommend Grandma's Herbs and their products to anybody looking for an over-the-counter or all natural product. I was hesitant at first, but I am beginning to realize that all natural herbs come from the earths natural resources and help fill the gap in some of our natural deficiencies, unlike most prescribed medicines, that simply cover up the issue until it gets worse. Good luck to everybody that decides to go the alternative route!
