As humans most of us have little understanding beyond what we have experienced and feel is normal. I believed it was normal and healthy to have only one bowel movement each morning. This is how it had always been for me. The healing journey I had begun that year was going to teach me many things I did not even know to question. The Father and I were to take this journey together joined from time to time by other also on this path. Looking back at the beginning of what is not yet finished, I have been privileged to know so many who have shared freely with me from their own experience.
My First Bowel Cleansing
My introduction to Bowel Cleansing and the LBF #1’s was pretty normal. My bottle of Capsules arrived with detailed instructions from my friend who had introduced me to all things natural healing. As I unloaded the box I put all the items away one at a time. She had sent Superfood, the #2 formula, Echinacea extract and the LBF #1’s. I quickly started the Superfood and Echinacea but never touched the Bowel Cleansing products. Two weeks later when it was time to begin the liver cleanse I still had not taken my first #1 capsule. Why? I figured my bowels were doing just fine and the bowel cleanse was optional. Wrong!
I’d been walking around for years with a roll of poop setting right under my bust line. I looked five months pregnant. Of course I didn’t know that roll around my middle was a stuffed bowel.
Two weeks after receiving my package I was scheduled to fly to my friend’s clinic for a month’s stay. When I arrived she wisely started me on the bowel cleanse routine. Fourteen days into the program and my bowels were still not working well. The thirteen capsules I swallowed each night had started something moving but it was not enough to clear thirty eight years of constipation. My friend arrived in my room that evening with a castor oil pack. She placed it over my colon, covered it with a towel and said good night.
The next morning I could not believe how much poop was still in me after fourteen days of juice fasting and an enema in the morning and evening. Under my breast I had been carrying a roll for years, now half the roll was gone. That’s right; half my stomach was flat the other half looked five months pregnant. Another castor oil pack was placed over my colon again that night with similar results the next morning. My stomach was now flat. The roll I had assumed was fat all those years was my colon filled with poop.
Staying open and willing to be taught can be the hardest part of healing. All the answers do not lie within us, we must be willing to continue to learn and grow. As long as there is life there is learning to be done.
