Understanding Bowel Cleansing

So much can be said for the benefits of bowel cleansing.  One of the biggest reasons I hear for not doing a good cleanse is fear of losing control.  This has never been an issue when using the LBF #1 & the LBF #2.  With a good understanding of how these two formulas work you will be in complete control of your bowels.

The LBF #1 increases the output of waste by stimulating the peristaltic waves in the bowel.  This formula does not work on the content of the bowel but goes to the bowel structure supporting the function of waste removal.  When the chemistry in these herbs comes in contact with the bowel wall they cause the squeezing, kneading motion of the peristaltic waves to work more effectively.

There are those who say a body can become addicted to the herbal laxatives.  I have always understood an addiction to be a negative action causing a debilitation to the area affected.  In the case of these herbal supports they are actually strengthening the bowel over time.  As the herbs affect the muscles to contract with greater strength the muscular tone of the bowel become stronger. Over time the peristaltic action will work effectively without the use of the herbs.  Many who have used these herbal supports have, after several years, strengthened their bowels to the place where they no longer need to use the LBF#1.  Their bowels inability to properly remove waste has been cleared.  This is not the action of an addictive substance.  The need for the LBF #1 will go down over time, not increase.

The LBF #2 is a bowel vacuum.  This formula has the bentonite clay and charcoal, powerful drawing herbs.  It also is binding, which makes it an excellent herbal support for any issues that result in loose bowels.

A rounded teaspoon of the LBF #2 powder shaken in six ounces of water or juice will quickly clear an issue of loose stool.  It will also do wonders when the lower bowel is crampy and uncomfortable.

When the bowels have turned to water a good dose would be one tablespoonful of the powder shaken in twelve to sixteen ounces of water or juice.  This can be done for each watery movement.  Except for the worst cases of food poisoning it will normally solidified the bowel in only one or two doses.

Food Poisoning

The worst instance I ever cleared was a case of food poisoning where the woman passed water from her bowels every hour or so all night long.  We went through nearly a whole eight ounce jar of the LBF #2 that night.  At one point she took two heaping tablespoons of the stuff in twenty ounces of water.  Around five in the morning she finally passed solid waste.  The bowel was back to normal.   There was no after effect from using such large amounts of the LBF #2.  Her bowels just normalized, she did not even need an extra dose of the LBF #1.

Doing the Bowel Cleanse

When using these formulas in a bowel cleanse you are in complete control.  Take one of the LBF #1 capsules with your dinner the first night.  The next morning if you don’t have a, “WOW,” bowel movement, take two capsules with dinner that evening.  Continue to increase by one capsule each day until your bowels are open and working well.

That first evening you might want to do a castor oil pack over your bowel.  This will soften up harden waste clinging to the walls of your bowel, allowing the peristaltic waves to flush the bowels more effectively.

Once the bowels are moving well it is time to take an extra capsule or two of the LBF #1 with your regular dose.  It is time to begin using the LBF #2 or bowel vacuum.  This formula is binding to the bowels so it is necessary to increase the amount of LBF #1 capsules to compensate for this effect.

This is where understanding these two formulas are the control you need to do an effective cleansing without undue stress or discomfort.    Here it is:

The LBF #1 will make the bowels move.  This formula will cause the muscular movement of the bowel wall to work more effectively.

The LBF #2 binds up the bowels.  This formula will slow down the muscular movement and solidify the contents of the bowel.

There you have it.  If the bowels are backed up, not moving well, take an extra LBF #1 Capsules.  If your bowels are over active and crampy take a heaping teaspoon of the LBF #2 to bind up the problem.  The LBF #2 will work in minutes to clear an uncomfortable bowel.

At dinner time each day count out the number of LBF #1 you need to use.  If you bowel were too active that day drop a capsule, if they were a bit sluggish add one.  You are in control. 

Thought on Bowel Cleansing

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.
