Truth or consequences. Today is your truth or consequences day! Sometimes, truth hurts!


This post is not for the faint of heart nor those who don’t like to talk about POOP!

Have you ever passed a UFO as the one above??? If you’ve never done a proper colon cleanse then UFO’s like that are lurking in your colon! I dare you to find out. You can see the ill formed shapes and pockets and bulges that exist in the colon and are reflected in this poop.

When I started my very first cleanse in 2000, I was shocked at how many of these UFO’s passed out of me. In fact on one cleanse, I went to the ER with a jar (oh my I can’t believe I’m confessing this), Yep, a jar with crap in it. But it was so red and stringy that I thought that it was full of blood! NOPE, it was just POOP! It was red from the beets I was juicing. Talk about embarrassment!

The top photo below is of a healthy colon. Normal twists and turns. The others are of unhealthy colons. Showing all the abnormal shapes. That’s why the real pictures of this gunk have such odd appearances without real form.

“Once mucoid plaque develops in the colon and digestive tract, proper digestion becomes more and more dysfunctional and constipation sets in. Constipation means less than one big voluminous bowel movement a day, everyday. Then one problem occurs after another, and the bowel becomes a toxic sewer system. Once the bowel becomes toxic, the blood becomes toxic, for all the blood coming from the bowel, carrying the necessary nutrients to feed the heart, lungs, brain, muscles, skin, etc. goes to the liver – nowhere else.

Then the liver must deal with the toxic blood. After years of relentless toxicity from the bowel, the liver becomes more and more sluggish. After a while it too no longer functions efficiently and toxic overloads begin to go to other parts of the body, such as the kidneys, heart, brain, joints, skin, Lymph, etc. Disease manifests where the toxins settle. For where there is toxic settlement, there is lack of circulation, lack of oxygen and a severe lack of nutrients.” – Dr. R. Anderson

As I said in my previous post, if you are dealing with any kind of health issue, I believe it’s important to start you’re healing protocol with a good colon cleanse. There really are so many analogies. It’s like moving into a new house but someone used it as a dumpster for a year. Yuck! That would never be acceptable. So why do we think it’s acceptable for the insides of our “house” to look that way?

The colon, or large intestine, is the end portion of the human digestive tract. The colon is approximately 5 feet long and 2.5 inches in diameter. Its major functions are to eliminate waste and to conserve water. In addition there are bacteria living in the colon which synthesize valuable nutrients such as vitamins “K” and portions of the vitamin “B” complex.(1)

Dr G’s colon cleanse is simple, inexpensive and very effective! The only thing of cost is a good juicer. Most people have one today since they have become so popular. I won’t go into all the pros and cons of a good juicer, you can research that for yourself. For me, the important factors were, ease, expense and nutritional value. I found that in my Omega Juicer.

I can’t remember what model I own, but it looks like the one above. I’ve owned 4 juicers since 1999 and this is the babe for me. She’s easy to operate, she’s easy to clean, she masticates, she’s quiet and she doesn’t need an entire counter top to herself! The trouble is I have forgotten her in the cabinet. She should be a daily part of my life, forever. Hopefully this cleanse along with my new found healing will allow me the time, effort and ability to juice daily for my health.

When I was in Ann Arbor, MI, at the Deirde Currie Festival, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride lectured that juicing should be a daily part of maintaining a healthy gut. I guess I just needed to hear it again.

Here’s what my cleanse looks like:

*2 Tbsp Bentonite (I use Sonne’s #7)

*1 heaping tsp Psyllium (I only use a brand with no other additives-Sonne’s has additives)

Mix in a glass of water and drink 5x day. Drink quickly or else you’re drinking thick applesauce! You’ll get used to the nothing taste. It won’t kill you, but what ales you may!

*Drink at least 64 oz of water. Your belly may bloat and hurt from the Psyllium, but make sure you’re getting lots of water and it will go away.

*Take 3-4 Comfree (comfrey free) Algin Pepsin daily morning and night. They will help absorb the excess mucous and pull it out.

*Juice 3-4 times a day using carrots, greens, small amt of green apple, cabbage (helps with inflammation in colon), cuc’s, beets (not too much or they will give you the runs), ginger, garlic. It’s really up to you. Remember this is a nutritious meal so fill it with lots of good veggies.

*Coffee enemas~~~this is a vital part of this cleanse! You can read more on Dr Max Gerson’s site or you can research it. It’s like giving your liver a dialysis’s every 3 min’s. Coffee enemas are retention enemas so it takes time and patience to get this going. Don’t rush it. Give yourself plenty of time and a relaxed setting. Put on some quiet music and read a book. Pray or meditate on Scripture.

That’s it. Dr G, recommended not taking supp’s during this time, except Vit C. I’m continuing with my Chinese Herbs for Lyme Disease, although I’ve been missing my afternoon dose. Stay on this diet for 4-7 days and you will literally be a new person. The cells in your colon rejuvenate every 3 days! And your colon houses 80% of your immune system!!!! That’s truly amazing. I think it’s a clue, that we ought to look at our colon more often and give it plenty of TLC.

You can drink Pau d’ Arco tea. If you’ve never tried it beware, it’s very bitter. But I now love it. It’s a great liver toxic! Add lots of bitter greens to your juice for the liver. I’ve even added Beet Kvass, since it’s a blood cleanser.

I feel great and except for the fact that I think about food, I know I can go the 7 days. This is what you can expect!

· Increased energy levels

· Relief from bloating

· Relief from constipation and IBS irritable bowel syndrome

· Stimulation of the body’s immune system

· Clearer skin

· Allow the free passage of nutrients into the blood steam

· Provision of a favourable environment for friendly bacteria and micro-flora, aiding digestion

· Promotion of normal and regular bowel movement

· Improved mental clarity (2)

The next step is to never put the SAD (standard American diet) food in your mouth again. To love your body enough to nourish it with lots of fermented foods that will continue to give you life. “Listen, listen and eat what is good and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.” Isaish 55:2 EAT WHAT IS GOOD!!!! And you will live!
