Diarrhea is Our Friend

The truth is that diarrhea is our friend.

  • I say friend because without it you would blow a hole through the wall of your colon in a matter of several days.
  • When an antibiotic in any of it’s versions destroys the mucosal lining in your intestines it exposes it to your stomach acids.
  • These acids literally eat holes in your bowel.
  • When they eat deep enough the acid and fibrous foods make contact with nerve tissue which can cause inflammation.
  • The body does not like that so it calls on it’s inate defense mechanism to protect it. It floods the bowel with water to dilute the acid minimizing the damage and also to float the acid and the fiber out asap.
  • Without diarrhea we are in trouble.
  • This will never go into remission or just go away all by itself. You have to do something about it.
  • Every day that you take Imodium or drugs like prednisone you are kidding yourself but not your body. While you are covering up the symptoms the damage keeps going on.
  • If this goes on too long it will take a lot of work putting humpty-dumpty back together again.
  • The mucosal lining which protects the intestinal wall also doubles as the GI tract’s immune system. This not only protects against infection but assists in a rapid healing of the colon

Everything You Think You Know About Your Gastrointestinal Tract Is Wrong

  • offal-1463369_1280
    • You know almost nothing about it because until the 2nd 1/2 of the last century you didn’t need to as it and you used to be self sufficient. That has changed.
    • Nothing has changed in the last 50 years of inflammatory bowel disease treatment.
    • There is no effective medical treatment for any IBD.
    • Yes they do have new drugs and fancy names for GI surgeries-‘J-pouch’ for one. They also have new ‘appliances’ as they call them for you to eliminate into.
    • If I had colitis or crohn’s -diverticulitis I would be grateful for what was available and would be the 1st in line-but I would also be looking for alternatives.
    • I’d also be a real pain in the neck and ask my doctor a lot of questions.
    • Things do evolve and sometimes the effective innovations come from somewhere other than where you are looking.
    • Let’s do our ‘google it test.’ Go find me anything from anywhere -any source of any kind that will tell you that they have proven that inflammatory bowel conditions are any type of auto-immune diseases. They don’t exist and they never will. Most of what you will find will state this and that they are working by theory only.
    • There is a new -valid and effective model for what these conditions are and how to treat them.
    • There are several key things you need to know.
    • Your GI tract is just one thing.
    • None of these manmade conditions are incurable ‘diseases.’
    • It is one long muscle stretched into a bunch of different shapes given names such as esophagus-stomach-small & large intestines-colon & rectum.
    • Think of the person at the circus who makes the animals out of balloons.
    • It is made of skin-fat & muscle just like your bicep or your thigh.
    • Just like these they can suffer injury.
    • If I cut my finger—-can it be healed? What is a finger made of?
    • A colon and a finger are made of the same thing–skin-fat & muscle & the healing process is the same.
    • Inflammatory Bowel Conditions are manmade injuries not diseases.
    • There is no valid list of different gastrointestinal ‘diseases.’
    • There is really just one injury and it starts with penetration of / a cut to the skin of the bowel.
    • Left unchecked this penetration keeps going deeper until it hits nerve tissue and blood vessels.
    • The deeper the penetration the more severe the symptoms.
    • This is commensurate with the length of time one goes without the proper care. If you do not receive the proper care you will never recover.
    • Have you recovered? What kind of care have you received?
    • There is just one inflammatory bowel condition.
    • That condition is irritable bowel syndrome.
    • Everything else – colitis-ulcerative colitis -crohn’s -diverticulitis are nothing other than a more severe version of IBS.
    • This is similar to 1st-2nd-3rd degree burns–the same skin-just more severe manifestations of the same condition.
    • There is only one starting point for you to heal yourself of any of these supposed inflammatory bowel ‘diseases.’
    • Go back to when you 1st started getting the symptoms and figure out what happened just before that.
    • All I did was to reverse engineer it.

The Real Diet for Inflammatory Bowel Conditions

    dont-even-think-about-it-1432948_1280The #1 thing that you need to know is that you cannot eat your way into or out of any inflammatory bowel conditionIt’s not about food. You could eat the worst possible diet and it would not give you IBS. The same can be said about eating only organic food — that will not heal your colitis or crohn’s. But YES, eating a certain way can make your life less miserable until you get this problem fixed.It is very,very simple. Just 2 things you need to do.

    The 1st rule of eating when you have an IBD is to eat a low fiber diet. This means no raw fruit, no raw vegs, no nuts, no seeds and no corn. Eating this way is temporary and doing just this can reduce your symptoms by 50%. But don’t fool yourself by thinking that you are healed. You aren’t. You just are not aggravatingthe source of the symptoms as much.

    The 2nd rule is to temporarily avoid any other foods that you are absolutely sure cause you problems. I emphasize this because almost all of you are juggling foods based on what you have seen online or what a friend has told you worked for them. That is just theory. The only thing that matters is how your body reacts to any foods. Otherwise you are unnecessarily denying yourself foods that you could be enjoying. Other than the fibrous foods the most common to cause problems are dairywheat and soy. This is because they are complex foods and require more stomach acids to digest. One of the secrets of treating IBD is knowing that in addition to fiber aggravating the bowel tissue it is your acids that actually eat-erode the bowel wall.

    That’s it. There is no more to it. The real diet for inflammatory bowel conditions is not what to eat but is what not to eat and this is temporary.

    Remember that it is not really about food – you cannot eat your way into or out of IBD. But you canmake it a more comfortable ride.

The Human Bio-Computer Manifesto 4.0 / All You Need To Know

  • If you get this then you can figure out anything to do with your body.
    You are a Human Bio-Computer.This is especially applicable to gastrointestinal problems but applies equally to every body part.

    There is no better model than this one to explain how your body works.

    ————————————————————

    You either have a hardware or software problem

    There is nothing else
    ———————————————————

    Draw a circle—-that is your stomach

    The line is your stomach wall—-the hardware

    Draw a squiggly line like vasoline or jelly clinging to the
    inner rim of the circle

    That is the software

    If there is damage to the hardware—the stomach wall, then you have IBS or colitis -crohn’s

    If you have damage to the software—you will have things like acid reflux or acid stomach or bloating-food sensitivities—gluten -dairy etc

    The software is your mucosal lining is made of specific bacterial strains & things like colostrum

    It should be installed at the factory–at birth

    If you were not nursed you did not have the software installed

    It acts like a firewall blocking acid from burning the stomach

    It also acts like computer software

    When we take in data—-food- germs -fluids, it identifies it’s unique code–dairy vs wheat

    It then instructs the hardware how to process it—digestion -immunity

    If a super virus (synthetic antibiotics) enters one of the portals (orifices) it will wipe out the software & you lose the digestion & immunity data

    You also lose the firewall & the digestive acids will eat a hole right through the stomach-esophagus wall

    If you don’t replace the software & repair the hardware you have zero chance of healing

    This exact model applies to your esophagus- stomach & intestines
    ——————————————————————–

    Now take your pencil & draw 2 circles on top of the original circle & one circle on top of those 2

    Then go to the bottom of the original circle & draw one more circle just below it

    The 2 circles above the 1st one are your lungs

    The one on top is your sinus

    The one at the very bottom is your bladder / urinary tract

    Everything I told you about the 1st circle is 100% identical for these circles

    You take something from the outside environment—data

    air -water -food – germs & it has to be processed

    We release histamines (another word for digestive acids) to process them them

    If we don’t have the software in place–say in the sinus, we can’t process the pollen and the release of histamines will inflame the sinus wall

    That is called allergies

    Lungs—same thing—that is called asthma

    bladder= UTI’s -prostatitis-cystitis -vaaginal yeast infections

    ——————————————————————

    Now—go back to our original circle

    Take that model & multiply that by 3.2 trillion

    That represents every cell in your body

    Take what I have told you above and apply it exactly to every cell

    Every cell is a stomach

    It gets fed by the blood stream nutrients and germs

    It releases histamines to process this data

    If you do not have the software in the cells you will not get the benefit of the data & not neutralize mini ‘viruses’-germs

    Examples of this is

    Pain—arthritis – fibromyalgia

    Body fat—not processing calories

    Fatigue-not accessing the energy in the calories

    Skin—-wrinkles -eczema – psoriasis – acne

    Name anything else that goes wrong with Human Bio Computers

    BTW-your pets (& mother in laws) are Mammalian Bio Computers & all laws apply

    ——————————————————————-

    What you need to do is-

    Re-install the software–an upgrade

    As the food is modified and new ‘viruses’ -synthetic antibiotics & chemical preservatives are invented we need to upgrade

    Fix the holes in the hardware

    Here is how–

    *MegaSporeBiotic—-take 1 capsule twice daily. This is the most highly evolved primordial bacterial spores that have survived for 1000’s of years. The ultimate survivor–they produce whatever biochemicals needed for whatever happens. These are evolving every second of every day. You want these in you.

    *Transfer Factors Sensitive – take 1 capsule twice daily. This contains the immune data base accumulated over history on this planet. You want this in you.

    *Restore–take 1 tsp 3 times daily. This contains extracts of elements from ancient fossilized soil. It makes everything work & is what is missing from our soil & the Plant Bi-Computers.

    This activates the spores and transfer factors & creates cellular communication.

    It makes the software work & it closes the holes on you cells.


    This is the ultimate software upgrade.

    You can get your software upgrade here-

    I have no affiliation of any kind with any supplements that I recommend on this website.

    I just have a desire to pass on the good stuff—-evolved knowledge & how to do & what you need to do it.

Crohn’s Disease Basics

  • Let’s clear up some misconceptions to reduce some of the unnecessary panic and get on the right path.

    1. Crohn’s is 100% curable with the proper use of natural medicine.
    2. Crohn’s is just a more severe case of ulcerative colitis which is just a more severe case of colitis which is just a more severe case of IBS.
    3. Crohn’s is just another one of the inflammatory bowel diseases – which are not diseases.
    4. Crohn’s is not an auto-immune disease. It is a manmade condition as all of the above are.
    5. If you have diarrhea- blood and mucus in your stool as well as pain and bloating you likely have crohn’s-a non disease.

Diarrhea Is Our Friend

outhouse-1411137_1920If you have any of the inflammatory bowel conditions there is a good chance that a predominant symptom is diarrhea——thank god for diarrhea!

We are so lucky to have a mechanism in our body that when our bowel is irritated it dumps a lot of water into it whitch then causes diarrhea. If you have a little diarrhea it is a little blessing-big urgent -out of control-life debilitating-butt getting raw diarrhea is a great big blessing.

Why is diarrhea such a good thing? Well of course this is in a certain context. None of us want to have diarrhea—unless we understand that in your bowel’s world it is a mechanism of survival.

Here’s how it works. Originally—-up until apprx 60 years ago this mechanism—-to release extra fluid into the bowel was in response to consuming something was was irritating to the bowel or as part of an immune response if we consumed a germ-perhaps tainted food or had a ‘stomach virus.’ Think of Montezuma’s Revenge. This was to protect the bowel walls-dilute the poison & float whatever it was out. Thank god for this.

Now—let’s upgrade the need for this function. Why did I say ‘up until apprx 60 years ago?’ That is when the world of microbiology changed. Just after world war 2 the pharmaceutical industry unleashed synthetic antibiotics into us & our environment. This has had massive effects upon our body.

Sticking to just our gastrointestinal tract the effects have been devastating. Remember that antibiotics kill bacteria & the most important part of our GI tract is the mucosal lining which is made of —–beneficial bacteria. Besides being our immune system & the gut being it’s primary home—–the mucosal lining plays a role of protecting the tender tissue of the bowel walls.

Here is the gist—-w/o the mucosal lining the bowel wall is exposed to——-our stomach acids. Unchecked these acids could burn a hole through our bowel wall in a week.

What do digestive acids do? They digest food. What is the bowel wall made of——–food.

The size of the hole is commensurate with the a. degree of destruction of & the lack of the mucosal lining & b. the amount of time that the tissue has been exposed. This then determines the severity of the diarrhea.

Little hole (IBS)—-little diarrhea—-Bigger Hole (Colitis) more diarrhea —-Even Bigger Hole—even more diarrhea & The Biggest Hole (Crohn’s) out of control 24/7 diarrhea.

What is the correlation? Why all the water?

Here’s why——the body with it’s protection mechanism senses that there is lot of destruction going on & then triggers the release of water—–to dilute the stomach acid & to quickly wash the acids out.

If you have an inflammatory bowel condition & you do not have diarrhea—then I feel bad for you & your condition will deteriorate faster that your friend’s who are all running for the bathroom.

Thank God For Diarrhea!

Footnote——-if you want to graduate all the way from IBS to Crohn’s——–take steroids to cover this up & chug imodium all day. (BTW—what does imodium do—–it inhibits the release of —water into the bowel.) You should know that even though you have arrested the symptoms the damage is still going on.

How will you know you are graduating? When you start to see mucus in your stool & then start to see blood in the stool you will know that you are losing the water  / acid battle.

What is crohn’s? It is when you have lost the battle & the acid has eaten most of your colon.

So—-thank god for diarrhea —–but if you ignore the signals not even god can save your colon.

The Truth About Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Leaves-in-the-pond-free-license-CC0Everything you have been told about IBD is wrong.

There is not a single medical study or paper published anywhere that claims to know the cause or cure of any IBD.

The supposed Inflammatory Bowel Diseases are: IBS = Inflammatory Bowel SyndromeColitis, UC = Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease. The medical professionals do not have any idea where they come from or how to treat them.

There is no medical professional anywhere who will tell you that they have cured any inflammatory bowel condition. There is no medical professional anywhere who will tell you they believe there is a cure.

This is because they are working with a wrong and outdated paradigm. The world is not flat.

Believe it or not there are many people who have been cured of all of the IBD’s.

If you have not met these people it does not mean they don’t exist!

Ulcerative Colitis

  • What Ulcerative Colitis is & is not.

    • Ulcerative Colitis is an inflammatory bowel condition that effects the colon.
    • Ulcerative Colitis is not a disease.
    • Ulcerative Colitis is a manmade condition created by exposure to antibiotics in it’s various forms.
    • These come by way of prescribed oral or topical antibiotics and our tainted food & water supply.
    • The antibiotics destroy the mucosal lining that protects the colon wall. The lining does not grow back on it’s own.
    • This allows your digestive acids & fibrous foods to erode the colon wall bringing about the various Ulcerative Colitis symptoms.
    • The major symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis are incessant diarrhea with blood in the stool.
    • Left untreated the damage will continue and the symptoms will become more severe and you will eventually experience mucus in your stool.
    • If you wait too long for the proper treatment you run the risk of developing the more serious bowel condition crohn’s disease.
    • There is no effective medical treatment for Ulcerative Colitis. Conventional medicine only tries to manage the symptoms with the perpetual use of prescription medicine and eventual surgery.
    • Do not believe anyone who tells you there is no cure for UlcerativeColitis. People are cured everyday-you have just not met them.
    • The only effective treatment for Ulcerative Colitis is the use of natural herbal remedies that reverse the effects of antibiotics. In essence regrowing the bowel tissue made of skin-fat & muscle.
    • These are highly specialized natural medicines that contain the very nutrients that the colon tissue is made of. Much like calcium helps rebuild bones.
    • It is possible to achieve a complete and permanent recovery in 90-120 days with a near total cessation of diarrhea in the 1st 7-10 days of treatment.
    • When done properly there is no need for any maintenance with nutritional supplements and no dietary or lifestyle restrictions.

Food Has Nothing to Do With Causing or Curing Your Inflammatory Bowel Condition

    food-salad-restaurant-personThere is a popular belief that your diet is the cause of your Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD), but is it really? The reality is that you absolutely cannot eat your way to IBD, and conversely, there is nothing you can do with your diet to cure it once you have it. It takes a little more work than that. So the people who tell you that you got it from junk food, and eating organic will fix it, it’s time to turn a deaf ear. Let’s stop blaming food and manipulating the role it plays in our gastrointestinal issues. Food is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, but that is separate from any IBD. Where IBD is concerned, food is of little concern.

    Some of the most common questions asked about IBD are:

    ‘I had food poisoning last year, could that have caused my IBS?’

    No. You had a pre-existing condition that just wasn’t extreme enough for you to take notice of yet. Food poisoning was likely just an exacerbating factor.

     ‘My Doctor told me to stay away from dairy and gluten – could eliminating them make my colitis go away?’

    No. The same goes for any other food that you ate before things went south on you.

    There is only one food rule you need to remember if you are suffering with any of the forms of IBD. Eat a low fiber diet. No raw fruit or veggies, and avoid nuts, seeds and corn entirely. Fiber is like a scouring brush that cleans out your colon, but when you have inflamed sensitive tissue in your colon, the last thing you want to do is drag a scouring brush across it, right? Ouch!

    By following this one rule, you can decrease your symptoms by approximately 50%. This, however, does not mean you are 50% healed. All this means is that you have taken the first step in self-managing your condition. The second step is getting on track with the healing process.

IBS – COLITIS – UC – LEAKY GUT SYNDROME – CROHN’S DISEASE ARE NOT AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASES!

    blood-20745_1920The title auto–immune disease suggests that the cause of these symptoms:

    • – diarrhea
    • – pain
    • – bloating
    • rectal bleeding and
    • mucus in the stool

    is the immune system attacking the intestines for no apparent reason.

    Science cannot explain exactly why and how this occurs because it isn’t true.

    The truth is that the immune system’s involvement in this is only a secondary reaction to a pre-existing condition. The immune system is NOT the cause of these symptoms.

    Remember this: The immune system is trying to help us not hurt us. How are we going to heal anything in our body without it?

     It is our own digestive acids eating holes in our colon. This occurs when we have had enough antibiotics to destroy the mucosal lining that protects the colon wall from these acids. Once these holes get deep enough undigested food particles slip through them into the bloodstream.

    Because they are not digested, the immune system interprets them as enemies and attacks them with harsh immune factors such as histamines which in themselves are just another form of digestive acids. So now we have inflammation coming from the inside of the colon wall as well as on the surface causing much confusion within the medical community.

    This sounds an awful lot like an advertisement for Leaky Gut Syndrome doesn’t it?

    Remember that this immune response is only secondary to the initial manmade pre-existing problem. 

    Then our doctor who doesn’t understand this, does recognize that the immune system IS involved but he/she makes the incorrect knee-jerk assumption that since the immune system is in the area it must be the villain. Then they go further down the wrong road and they prescribe immune-suppressive drugs.

    And here we go, on top of the initial problem: Now we have an immune system problem.

    This is surely a reason that conventional medical doctors do not ever see success stories.

    Just because the meds are suppressing the symptoms doesn’t mean that the digestive acids and the immune histamines stop eating away at our colon. While we are feeling pretty good about things the acids are breaking down the tissue until one day we see more evidence that something is wrong when we see blood or mucus in our stool.

    In a nutshell IBD is not an auto–immune disease and it is completely preventable and fixable by people who know how. Seek them out!

    Always ask questions until you are satisfied with the answer!

Herbs & IBS

    spoons and spicesThis is another installment in the series called Holistic Treatment for IBS.

    I know that many of you suffering from any of the inflammatory bowel conditions have googled things such as

    Holistic Treatments for Irritable Bowel Syndrome or

    Natural Treatments for Colitis or

    Natural Cure for Ulcerative Colitis.

    That is the easy part—–punching a few characters into your keyboard. The hard part comes when in .01 seconds you get 3.5 million results. Wow—-now your head hurts more than your colon.

    How can you possibly figure out what to do next? I mean—do you really want to go back & have another colonoscopy? You can only stay on prednisone so long. But you are absolutely over this projectile diarrhea.

    Do we take vitamins-minerals-herbs—eat an esoteric—caveman diet-go gluten free -eat only range free chickens? There sure are a lot of choices & you don’t know anything about any of them. Either does your doctor.

    What do you need to do? You need to become an advocate for your self. You need to roll your sleeves up & do your homework. You need to start somewhere and this blog is a good place to start.

    That’s what this series is about. To give you the basics in simple english. No medical mumbo jumbo or hippie airy fairy stuff. What you will get here is the real stuff garnered through 30+ yrs of being in the trenches – cut to the chase. Just what matters & what works.

    Ok-herbs. They are very important & central to your recovery from any of the inflammatory bowel ‘diseases.’ You will learn once you are healed that you never had a disease.

    Herbs are nothing other than food that contains concentrations of specific nutrients. They are actually very sophisticated and safe. There are very few instances where an herb can have any negative effect. I will cover that in a minute.

    What can herbs do for you? They can speed up the healing process. They can perform a holistic action of taking numerous nutrients and helping them all work together. Synergy. For instance when a bone is being healed it is not just the calcium sliding into the bone. There is an herb called ‘bone knit’—it does just what it says-it knits a broken by grabbing a bunch of supportive nutrients and facilitating the process.

    Let’s say you have colitis. That means you have a hole in your colon. You will need 2 basic things to heal it.

    An herb that contains some of the building blocks of the colon tissue. Let’s say—–mastica which is a leaf—that’s a good one. It contains mucilage—-kind of a sticky-fibrous substance part starch -part protein. This stuff will plug up the hole. (it’s also good for smothering -killing parasites & candida yeast).

    Now let’s throw in some slippery elm. This stuff is good at speeding up the ‘knitting up’ -entwining the mastica and the damaged flesh—-basically stitching up the wound.

    Let’s say that there is some inflammation-pain in the intestines. Let’s ask our friends either marshmallow roott or boswellia—-both excellent anti -inflammatories for help.

    Now you begin healing the bowels & reliving some of the pain—is there anything else to consider?

    Well yes. With any bodily injury one of the most important issues is to deliver more blood—increase circulation. This will deliver the vital nutrients like our herbs to the location faster. Who can do that?

    Ginkgo Biloba is our transportation specialist -awesome & safe—except under one circumstance. What if for instance you have ulcerative colitis—where there is a perforation of tissue that penetrated a blood vessel. In this case you would find blood in your stool. So—–if we are pumping blood to our colon and we had a hole in it——–we would see even more blood. Notice how your doctor will remind you to not take herbs just prior to or after surgery? That’s why.

    In most cases of bowel conditions that have bleeding as a symptom such as with UC or crohn’s you are not going to have a real problem—-just a little more blood if anything.

    Another valuable herb with the same potential issue is turmeric. One of the top 5 herbs in all of nature.

    It is a very good anti-inflammatory & also an effective blood thinner–helpful for those with clotting issues.

    But what would happen if you had UC and took some turmeric to help with those bowel cramps? You could end up with some red undies.

    One more example of how we could do our self some damage is to take digestive enzymes when we we are struggling with ulcerative colitis. What do these enzymes do? They digest food. What is our bowel tissue made of? Food. Get it? These enzymes will not hurt you if you do not have UC .

    So these are several answers to the question-‘why do I have blood in my stool?’

    Lastly—are there IBS or colitis trigger foods? Yes—-but they do not cause these conditions. It is only if you have these conditions already that foods that are high in fiber can ‘trigger’ an episode of diarrhea or bleeding.

    There is very little negative that you can do with food & herbs if you are wrestling with any IBD. Although not lethal they can cause some stress and aggravation.

Colitis: Answering your Questions

    Colitis – Your Questions Answered

    Colitis is an important health problem that causes the lining of the large intestine to be inflamed and swollen.

    The initial cause of colitis is our exposure to synthetic antibiotics, which our environment is filled up with.

    Q: What is Colitis?

    A: It is a manmade disorder that causes inflammation of the colon, which is the largest section of the large intestine. Colitis is the erosion and chronic inflammation of the intestinal wall by our digestive acids.

    Q: What causes Colitis?

    A: This condition is caused by the consumption of artificial synthetic antibiotics. They are delivered to our colon either via oral or topical prescriptions or with the consumption of food and water. The consumption of artificial synthetic antibiotics kills off the mucosal lining that blocks digestive acids from eating holes in our intestinal wall.

    Q: What are the symptoms of Colitis?

    A: Colitis symptoms may include pain – bloating – persistent and urgent diarrhea.

    Q: What is Ulcerative Colitis?

    A: Ulcerative Colitis is a more serious version of colitis with more severe symptoms. Its symptoms may be 24-hour diarrhea with the presence of mucus and blood in the stool. Ulcerative Colitis is one step before Crohn’s disease.

    Q: How is it diagnosed?

    A: There is no accurate conventional medical method available in order to diagnose colitis or any of the other inflammatory bowel conditions such as IBS or Crohn’s disease. The best way to diagnose colitis is by its symptoms.

    Q: Is there a treatment? Also, is there a natural treatment for Colitis?

    A: The appropriate holistic treatment for colitis is to replace the mucosal lining in order to protect the intestinal tissue from the digestive acids and at the same time rebuild the eroded tissue by the use of the organic raw materials that the intestines/colon is made of.

    Q: Is surgery necessary?

    A: Surgery is not necessary if you receive the appropriate holistic gastroenterology treatment. Deprived of the appropriate colitis treatment there is a possibility that you may need surgery in the future.

    Q: Is there a diet suitable for Colitis?

    A: The answer is yes and no. The only dietary limit is to temporarily eat a low fiber diet. That means no consumption of raw fruit and vegetables, nuts, seeds or corn. It is not a good idea to drag roughage over already irritated tissue, as it is going to make the symptoms even worse. There are no other dietary restrictions for colitis.

    Q: Does it ever go into remission on it’s own?

    A: No- without the appropriate treatment it will worsen. The final step is that it will ‘evolve’ into a more serious condition such as Crohn’s Disease. These are not separate-different conditions. One is just a more extreme version of the other.

    If your current treatment for colitis is not successful, I hope that these replies to usual colitis questions are going to motivate you to look for some alternative holistic treatment. A natural cure may save your colon.

    Natural Treatment For ColitisThe symptoms of colitis are no fun. They may include severe pain in the stomach and diarrhea. Colitis is an important health problem that causes the lining of the large intestine to be inflamed and swollen.

    The initial cause of colitis is our exposure to synthetic antibiotics, which our environment is filled up with. We are exposed to these through prescription oral or topical antibiotics, from consumption of food and water and also from the use of antibacterial home cleaning products. Antibiotics destroy the mucosal lining of the intestines. The health of our colon declines dramatically without this lining. It protects the tissue in our gastrointestinal tract.

    When it is damaged our body’s digestive enzymes start eating and irritating the bowel lining. This is what inflammatory bowel conditions like IBS and Crohn’s disease are and how we get them. They are not diseases!

    These are the five most common symptoms of colitis.

    1. Diarrhea

    This can vary from mild and occasional to frequent with unpredictable urgency. It is often triggered by the consumption of food. Some people have a disorder known as IBS-C, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome with constipation. This disorder is found more frequently in people genetically pre-disposed to constipation. Constipation is caused by the body failing to properly hydrate the stool. This is not caused by something that you are doing wrong. It is simply who you are and you can perfectly manage it. But you cannot not cure it the way you can with diarrhea.

    2. Stomach and intestinal pain

    Though sometimes this may be related to a stomach bug or even to food poisoning- if it is persistent it may be due to colitis.

    3. Bloody stools

    That is a significant symptom that indicates that you have ulcerative colitis.

    4. Mucus in stool

    That is a significant symptom that indicates that you have ulcerative colitis & possibly Crohn’s.

    Although it is not a physical symptom, this last symptom may be the most paralyzing side effect of colitis and any inflammatory bowel condition.

    5. Paranoia

    This is met in some people who are too afraid to live their life normally. To leave home to go out to eat, to attend social events, go to a movie or go the mall. They have lived with this problem for so long that they have become shut-ins. Paranoia is usually found in those suffering from more than simply IBS. Numerous have had ‘accidents’ and even though they are cured find it difficult to leave the safety of their home for more than a short period of time.

    The conclusion is that you don’t have to allow this pain- physical and psychological steal your life any more. Drugs are not the answer, you have already tried that. Seek out alternatives. Conduct some research and ask questions. And most of all don’t ignore these five main symptoms of colitis.

    Natural Treatment For Colitis

    natural-cure-for-colitisThere is one question: ‘Are there any efficient cures for colitis?’ The answer to this question is ‘yes there is one – it’s a natural treatment for Colitis and it’s the same as the one for IBS and Crohn’s disease.’

    Any other inflammatory bowel condition cure is not going to work because it is going to be built on the wrong premise. If it is not understood that these are all the same condition with the same cause and the same cure it is doomed for failure.

    What is the alternative? Synthetic drugs that cover up the symptoms of colitis is not a cure. You would be surprised to know how many people think this is the cure. Once I was told ‘I don’t have a bowel problem, I take prednisone!’

    The only real and effective cure for colitis is a natural treatment. This is to rebuild the colon by the use of the organic raw materials that the colon is made of. And for sure, colons are not made of chemicals.

    Diet for Colitis (Natural Treatment For Colitis)

    A question that every client asks me is ‘what do I have to eat?’ I realize the confusion as people certainly assume that there must be a particular diet for each different inflammatory bowel disorder. The reason for this misunderstanding is that we have all been given the wrong information.

    We have been told that these are all individual and particularly different disorders, which are diseases, thus they require different treatments. They are not different and they do not require different treatments.

    We have been told that poor diet is the cause of inflammtory bowel conditions or that a pure-organic diet is the cure. Neither is true. The truth is that diet has nothing to do with IBD of any kind.

    Essentially all of these conditions are just different versions of IBS. One may have the symptoms of diarrhea – while another has blood in the stool or another one has mucus in the stool. They seem to be different but they are actually not. The only ‘difference’ is the length of time one has had an irritated bowel. The more time – the worse the symptoms and finally the scarier the name we give it.

    Consequently there is no need for special diets. The proper inflammatory bowel condition ‘diet’ is to temporarily eat a low fiber diet. When you are healed you can eat again whatever you want.

    There is no need to get freaked out over food. Ignore all the theories. It does not have to do with dairy – wheat – sugar – vegetarian – macrobiotic – nightshade food combining-whatever. You will not be able to heal any inflammatory bowel condition with any kind of diet.

    Actually you cannot even create one. Food is vastly overrated when it comes to inflammatory bowel conditions.

    The only dietary target you should have is to not irritate your colon. It is already irritated. Now it is time to get it healed with the appropriate holistic treatment. To do this there are just three food rules.

    1. Eat low fiber foods. This way you will not irritate the already inflamed intestinal tissue.
    2. In Case any food bothers you when you eat it stop it for now. You will continue eating whatever you want later.
    3. Do yourself a great favor- ignore everything else!

    Foods To Avoid If You Have IBS or Colitis (Natural Treatment For Colitis)

    Many times I have stated that food has nothing to do with stomach problems including acid reflux or inflammatory bowel. That is true regarding the causes of these conditions. It is not possible for you to eat your way into or out of these conditions.

    The nature of these disorders is that there is damage to the tissue. The esophagus-stomach or bowel wall becomes inflamed. There are no foods that can cause that. Neither there are foods that can heal it.

    However you can manage food in a way that will decrease the discomfort. Some foods can worsen the problem—trigger an increase in symptoms. The core symptom that may be exacerbated by eating the wrong foods while combating IBS-colitis & Crohn’s disease is diarrhea.

    These are foods that have high amounts of fiber and here is the reason they are a problem. Since the GI tissue is already inflamed it must not have roughage-fibrous food dragged accross it.

    Why diarrhea? When we are on high fiber diets and it is further irritating the tissue 2 things occur-the bowel muscles go into a spasm that trigger powerful contractions that bring about severe urgency & even projectile diarrhea.

    The body when identifying the irritation goes into a preservation state and dumps a lot of water into the bowel to dilute the fiber and flush it out so the ‘scraping’ of the fiber over the tissue will minimalized on its way through & out of the bowel.

    By just not eating these high fiber foods you can decrease your symptoms for these conditions by 50%.

    Do not consume:

    • Raw vegetables
    • Raw Fruit (except for soft fruits such as bananas & melons).
    • Nuts—-nut oils and butters are ok.
    • Seeds–this not only refers to sunflower and sesame seeds but also to fruits with seeds such as strawberries & raspberries.
    • Corn—-considered the worst of them all. Not only cooked corn but also in form of popcorn & corn chips. People often question whether corn products that might be an ingredient in some food such as a muffin—-corn meal or corn syrup.

    These ingredients along with secondary sources of fiber–things like whole grains—-brown rice for instance-together with the soft fruits I mentioned are ok. Remember that it is the rough factor–things such as eating an apple or a raw salad or corn on the cob——–that although healthy, they contain a lot of fiber that can further irritate your bowel.

    When the fiber is cooked it softens it making it benign. Corn is the only exception. Even when cooked is still too rough.

    So keeping it on context—these foods cannot cause an inflammatory bowel disorder and by avoiding them one cannot cure the problem. By avoiding them until you are healed will save you & your colon a lot of aggravation.

    Just a final note as to what to eat & to not eat—–raw avocados are most suitable for all gastrointestinal troubles. One beneficial nutritional factor in them is the avocado oil. I must admit that I had to search if they are a fruit or vegetable. They are a fruit so eat them up.

    You don’t have to tolerate Colitis! There is a natural treatment for Colitis

    You don’t have to tolerate colitis symptoms like chronic and urgent diarrhea. You don’t have to live with the fear of it’s flare-ups. There is a cure for colitis.

    Colitis is not an illness. It is a manmade “condition.”

    It is caused by the consumption and ingestion of certain common drugs- that are not only prescribed- but are now widespread in our food supply. Our environment is harming us- causing among other things- an epidemic of gastro-intestinal complications that were unknown prior to world war 2. It seems now that everyone has some kind of GI-bowel -stomach- esophagus problem. Are you popping Tums and Imodium? Don’t believe there is a colitis cure.

    There is a natural therapy for colitis but there is no conventional cure – but then again you already know that- don’t you. I have had a friendly challenge for 30 years trying to find even one single person who has been cured of any inflammatory bowel disease- IBS- Colitis-Ulcerative Colitis-Leaky Gut- Crohn’s(not a disease) Diverticulitis- Dysbiosis- Gastroenteritis– by modern conventional medicine. They simply don’t exist. Sure you know people who are sticking on to the “Colitis Diet”- they say- “I am fine- as long as I don’t have nuts- seeds- corn- raw fruit- vegs- don’t eat dairy -wheat.”- wow- they are doing great, don’t you think? I meet people every day who are cured of the above conditions.

    BTW- when I say cured- I mean the old fashion meaning- no symptoms- no dietary or lifestyle limitations- no troubles- they just continue to live their life normally. It happens everyday. It is the natural cure for Colitis.

    Holistic Colitis Treatment

    Most who come to me for help are in a flare up where most of their symptoms are at a maximum or they have been tolerating chronic symptoms but are not in a crisis mode. With regards to colitis these typical symptoms are- very frequent and urgent diarrhea. Finding themselves having blood or mucus in the stool, is a sign that they have advanced into ulcerative colitis or crohn’s disease which is unavoidable without the proper treatment. You may be amazed by what I suggest for colitis treatment when you are suffering from these symptoms on a daily basis.

    If these symptoms make you uncomfortable and are interfering with your social and professional life I suggest you use these conventional medicines for a short duration to give you some relief until you receive the proper care.

    These are a few examples of the medications prescribed by medical doctors and if used temporarily & appropriately can contribute to your recovery by giving some relief from symptoms—–while you are getting the proper treatment that will cure you.

    1. Imodium

    This is an OTC medicine and you may take this in a daily basis to manage your diarrhea. There are not any serious side effects to worry about when taking this.

    2. Steroids such as Prednisone

    They work well to cope with the symptoms but have certain symptoms if used for a long time.

    3. Asacol-Mesalamine

    This is not a steroid and does not have as serious side effects as steroids.

    4. Pentassa

    Pentassa is also not a steroid and does not have serious implications when used short term.

    Why do I tolerate the use of these medications in your treatment IBD? This is because using them for a short-term can relief from your symptoms allowing you to live a more normal life without any counter effects while preparing for the effective proper treatment through holistic gastroenterology which can eventually cure the problem.

    You may continue to have the prescription meds while taking the nutritional supplements as there are no contraindications. I like to use these meds as a bridge to a final cure. Then after the necessary amount of time we evaluate the reduction of the meds while still using the supplements and as we see less or no symptoms we eventually minimize them until we are able to sustain perfect normal function without the medication. We then repeat the same reduction with the nutritional supplements and eventually you will be able to live free from symptoms, nutritional supplements and medications.

    How to Cure Colitis?

    Colitis has become a very common syndrome these days, especially in people in the age group 25-30. It is a type of inflammatory bowel condition, which is associated with inflammation and ache of the colon or the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. If left improperly treated Colitis can advance into more severe conditions like Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease.

    Colitis was first noticed in the 50s and ever since the conventional medical community is still not able to figure out the causes behind Colitis and has been recommending treatments including prescribed medication and surgeries based on mere assumptions. So is it impossible to treat Colitis? No, it’s possible if it is treated the proper way with the right mix of natural-holistic medication. Read on to know how.

    The cure to Colitis is very simple. It involves the use of specialized nutritional supplements that contain the exact nutrients that the colon is made of. You don’t need any immune suppressant medicines nor need any surgery. All it takes is a period of 3-4 months of this & a low fiberdiet, which should omit high fiber foods, (as raw vegetables, raw fruits and nuts). In order to understand this, you should know how Colitis is caused in the first place.

    Colitis as we know it, is a condition where the intestinal inner walls are damaged, leading to persistent diarrhea, nausea and if left untreated, traces of blood and mucus in the stool. This harm is caused by synthetic antibiotics, which are present in the many drugs we take and the products we consume on a daily basis like toothpaste and the use of antibacterial soaps. These antibiotics not only kill the harmful bacteria but also the beneficial ones which protect the mucosal lining of our intestinal inner walls.

    Owing to this, the mucosal lining is compromised causing the seepage of strong digestive acids released during digestion onto the delicate walls of intestine and stomach. Upon frequent exposure, the walls are damaged leading to inflammation and aches.

    The only way to avoid this situation from happening is by providing the body with essential nutrients that these inner walls are made of rather than making the condition worse by using ongoing courses of synthetic antibiotics.

    Thus, in order to cure it, you must know what causes Colitis. Now that you know, we hope you consider natural treatment for Colitis via Holistic Gastroenterology™, which recognizes that Colitis is a manmade condition that can be completely cured with the proper treatment.

What Chronic Constipation Is & Is Not

    corks-640362_1920

      • Chronic Constipation is not an inflammatory bowel condition.
      • Chronic Constipation is not a disease.
      • It is a genetically predisposed condition that you inherit. Someone relative somewhere along the way passed it on to you. You are not doing anything wrong.
      • The problem is mechanical. You are unable to properly hydrate the bowel and the stool becomes too hard to pass.
      • Because of this the bowel muscles become weak & you loose proper peristalsis.
      • The major symptoms of Chronic Constipation are stomach and bowel pain along with gas-bloating-headaches-bad breath-body odor and fatigue.
      • Left untreated the symptoms will become more severe and there will eventually be damage to the tissue of the colon wall that may create conditions such as IBS.
      • If you wait too long for the proper treatment you run the risk of losing function of your bowel and will eventually require surgery.
      • There is no effective medical treatment for Chronic Constipation. Conventional medicine only tries to manage the symptoms with the perpetual use of prescription medicine and eventual surgery.
      • Do not believe anyone who tells you there is no cure for Chronic Constipation. People are cured everyday.
      • The only effective treatment for Chronic Constipation is the use of natural herbal remedies that help hydrate the stool and strengthen the bowel muscles.
      • Simply adding fiber to your diet or taking fiber supplements will not help this problem and could make it worse.
      • These are highly specialized natural medicines that contain the very nutrients that the colon tissue is made of. Much like calcium and bone.
      • It is possible to achieve a complete and permanent recovery in 90-120 days with a near total cessation of constipation in the 1st 7-10 days.
      • I have practiced Holistic Gastroenterology for 33 years and I have created an effective natural treatment that has consistently brought relief to those suffering with Chronic Constipation.

Why Am I Constipated?

suit-portrait-preparation-weddingIf you are constipated it is not because you are doing anything wrong. Instead it is who you are.

  • You can’t make yourself constipated.
  • There is no anti constipation diet. It’s not about food. You can’t eat your way into or out of constipation.
  • So what is constipation all about?
  • It’s about genetics. Even if none of your current relatives have a constipation problem you can be sure that great grandfather or someone passed it on.
  • In incredulous counter intuitive contrast-if you had a hole blasted through your colon and are bleeding profusely from the butt–which is called ulcerated colitis—that can be healed and done with.
  • Because of this you cannot cure constipation-you can only manage it.
  • It comes down to an inherent inability to absorb some vital nutrients that are in our food that are responsible for the intake of water into our bowel.
  • These nutrients are also responsible for keeping the bowel muscles flexible allowing for the peristaltic motion—-moving the waste along & out.
  • This may blow your mind. We are designed to have 3 bowel movements per day.
  • If not——you are constipated.
  • If you are constipated that means that every day you have what would normally be eliminated being redistributed and packed into every cell in your body.
  • Is it any wonder you feel like-

Why Do I Have Mucus In My Stool?

why-1432955_1280People who see mucus in their stool are always scared and confused.They can understand diarrhea but mucus? It might sound surprising to know that this is happening for a good reason. It is trying to protect you.

This occurs in more advanced cases of inflammatory bowel conditions such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s. In these conditions there is considerable damage to the intestinal wall as it is being assaulted by your digestive acids.
As the damage gets deeper and close to making contact with nerve and blood tissue it attempts to protect you by releasing mucus into the bowel to stick to the wall to protect it from the acids. Because this is only a stop-gap measure the mucus eventually slides out along with the stool.

Do not ignore this as it is a sign that you are losing control of the inflammation that is destroying your colon and are headed towards surgery.

Inflammatory Bowel Conditions Permanently Healing

If you have an inflammatory bowel condition the good news is that with the proper treatment you can permanently repair your gastrointestinal tract. The means is to replace the mucosal lining which protects the tissue of the intestinal wall. This tissue is made up of skin- fat and muscle. Without the mucosal lining our stomach acid erodes the wall and over time will create the symptoms of IBD.

4 Frequently Asked Questions about IBD

These are some of the questions my clients ask me about inflammatory bowel conditions.

Q. Do NSAIDS cause IBS?

A. Not directly. While they are acidic and they can upset the stomach they do not cause any of the inflammatory bowel conditions. They can only aggravate a pre-existing problem that was present from a prior use of antibiotics. This would allow the nsaids to leak through the mucosal lining and irritate the GI tract wall.

Q. Does IBD run in my family?

A. Not exactly. Yes there are always genetic tendencies towards any body system to be more susceptible to disease. Regarding gastro-intestinal conditions like IBD, do not develop without other factors as the primary influence. What does run in the family is the use of antibiotics. These will exacerbate the genetic tendency and increase the potential for anything from IBS to crohn’s.

Q. My doctor suggested that I should have colonics and increase my fiber to help my colitis. Is that a good idea?

A. No. This will only make it worse. The tender lining of your colon is already irritated and inflamed. You do not want to be dragging roughage over it or sticking things up there. Part of the proper strategy for this condition is to temporarily eat a low fiber diet.

Q. My naturopath said that she could not fix my ulcerative colitis. Why is that?

A. I am sure that your naturopath is excellent at treating many general problems and also   that she may specialize in certain conditions. Gastro-intestinal problems can be very complex to treat and require a naturopath who specializes in them. Most naturopaths shy away from GI problems.

What Crohn’s Disease Is & Is Not

lonely-portrait-advertisement-black-and-white

  • Crohn’s Disease is an inflammatory bowel condition that affects the colon.
  • Crohn’s Disease is not a disease.
  • Crohn’s Disease is a manmade condition created by exposure to antibiotics in various forms.
  • These come by way of prescribed oral or topical antibiotics and our tainted food & water supply.
  • The antibiotics destroy the mucosal lining that protects the colon wall. The lining does not grow back on it’s own.
  • This allows your digestive acids & fibrous foods to erode the colon wall bringing about the various Crohn’s Disease symptoms.
  • The major symptoms of Crohn’s Disease are incessant diarrhea with blood & mucus in the stool.
  • Left untreated the damage will continue and the symptoms will become more severe and you will additionally see undigested food in your stool.
  • If you wait too long for the proper treatment you run the risk of losing function of your bowel and will eventually require surgery.
  • There is no effective medical treatment for Crohn’s Disease. Conventional medicine only tries to manage the symptoms with the perpetual use of prescription medicine and eventual surgery.
  • Do not believe anyone who tells you there is no cure for Crohn’s Disease. People are cured everyday.
  • The only effective holistic treatment for Crohn’s Disease is the use of natural herbal remedies that reverse the effects of antibiotics. In essence regrowing the bowel tissue made of skin-fat & muscle.
  • These are highly specialized natural medicines that contain the very nutrients that the colon tissue is made of. Much like calcium and bone.
  • It is possible to achieve a complete and permanent recovery in 90-120 days with a near total cessation of diarrhea in the 1st 7-10 days of treatment.
  • When done properly there is no need for any maintenance with nutritional supplements and no dietary or lifestyle restrictions.
  • I have practiced Holistic Gastroenterology for 33 years and I have created an effective natural treatment that has consistently brought relief to those suffering with Crohn’s Disease.

The Truth About What IBS is Not

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is not a syndrome.

IBS is not an auto-immune disease. In fact no inflammatory bowel condition is—including crohn’s ‘disease.

IBS is not just going to go away. There is no such thing as remission. You may be able to dampen the symptoms somewhat for awhile by juggling foods. Then because you have gone so long without the proper care it will bounce back on you with a vengeance.

This is especially true if you take the route of prednisone or immune suppressant meds.

IBS left untreated is called colitis.

IBS is not going to be fixed by your doctor.

IBS is not caused by a poor diet.

IBS is not going to be fixed by changing your diet.

You can’t eat your way into or out of IBS.

You can’t heal IBS by taking taking bowel cleansers or colonics. They are the opposite of what is needed. They will make it worse.

IBS is not something you have to live with. I wish I could convince the doubting Thomases.

What Causes Inflammatory Bowel Disease?

If you have been told that you have Inflammatory Bowel Disease you are likely in the dark about what initially caused this condition. Your doctor may have told you that the causes for your ailment are unknown. That is not true. Your doctor isn’t holding back useful information from you. The truth is that doctors are not taught in medical school what causes issues like irritable bowel syndrome. As a result physicians don’t have any helpful information to relay to their patients. Inflammatory bowel conditions were never discussed before the 1950’s. This is because they did not exist. There were certainly many stomach and bowel maladies but these were temporary and aside from homemade elixirs they just passed with time. For these simple conditions plop-plop-fizz-fizz was all we needed.

Now there is a new kid on the block. It all happened just after ww2 when manmade synthetic antibiotics were unleashed into our environment and in our bodies. These have a devastating effect upon our insides particularly our gastrointestinal tract. Being very effective they killed everything bacterial that crossed their path. There was nowhere that was more effected than our gastrointestinal tract. The inside of our bowel is protected by a good bacterial culture known as the mucosal lining. Without this we are screwed.

This is the beginning of the history of inflammatory bowel conditions. Prior to this there was no substance that could kill off the mucosal lining. No one ever suffered from any IBD. There are graphs available that show the parallel increase of antibiotics use and the increase in inflammatory bowel conditions. None of this is coincidental. Don’t look to your doctor for help with this. They have bought the antibiotic treatment concept hook-line and sinker. In fact if you go to them with a bowel problem you are likely to leave their office with a prescription for———-.
