While it is restorative to take a break emotionally and physically if stress is an issue in your life, it isn't restorative to take a break with physical elimination. During the fall and winter seasons many find it more difficult to find a time or place to exercise, aren't as hot so don't drink as much water and then find their eliminative systems are not working as well.
This is also the time when many are plagued by colds and flu being passed around schools and offices. So, now is also time to educate people on how to be prepared when their digestive system slows down and clogs up, slowing down the elimination process.
When I get a call from someone and they have a cough that won't quit my advice is always "Get your bowels moving". Many can't understand how having a bowel movement will eliminate the cough. Actually the reason is quite simple. The tube connecting the respiratory system runs down the entire body from the mouth to the anus. When the body is working hard to eliminate an irritant (bacteria or virus) it produces copious amounts of mucus in an attempt to flush it out, usually by coughing. If you open the pathway for the mucus to move down and out it also removes the reason for coughing.
So, in continuing on with education about the large intestine, today's newsletter is about some of the herbs historically used to encourage elimination, especially when things slow down. The two most common single herbs used to encourage elimination are Cascara Sagrada and Senna.
The bark of the Cascara Sagrada tree provides us with one of the most wonderful bowel cleaners found in nature. Its name, in Spanish, means bark-sacred or sacred bark. This is as natural a solution to bowel problems as you can find. This is what animals in nature nibble on to stay regular. Cascara Sagrada gives the bowel the strength to move. A few drops of the tea on the exposed intestines of a recently sacrificed laboratory white rat will cause the intestines to move. You can imagine what it can do for a live person. Responsible people enjoy the benefit of this herb to obtain one easy and complete bowel movement per meal just as was intended by nature. Bowel wastes removed more frequently in this way, prevent all manner of mischief, including prostate problems, uterus problems, bladder and urinary tract disorders, the hysterectomy, ear, throat, lung, liver, eye, sinus and cold infections, etc.
Senna is an effective herb to use to flush and clean out the bowels. It relies, for its main function, on the elaborate use of water, which it draws to itself for the purpose of flushing out the 25 feet of the alimentary canal, known as the small and large intestines. This ability is most likely due to a group of anthracene (vegetable detergents) compounds, that have been identified by modern investigation, which occur when the leaves are dried. Used as a frequent and highly effective home remedy by many pioneer and farming families. At the first sign of any kind of sickness, such as a cold or flu, they used their "See-nee tea." The idea was to clean out the poisons which are the source of the sickness. And it was often very effective for this purpose, as well as many other undefined reasons for feeling sick. Senna contains a generous supply of the mineral magnesium for calming cramping muscles. Senna was usually given with Ginger or Fennel to provide more comfort by rapidly expelling the gas associated with cleansing.
Using combinations of herbs can be even more beneficial to the eliminative process. The synergistic effect of a group of herbs enhances the ability to eliminate while reducing some of the more irritating aspects of some of the single herbs such as gas or cramping. There are many effective combinations from both Nature's Sunshine Products and Pure Herbs. My two favorites are LBS II from Nature's Sunshine Products, and CCE-W from Pure Herbs.
LBS II is a combination created to support the intestinal system while promoting normal bowel function. It can help clear the bowels of toxic waste, encourage better digestion, and supports proper waste elimination while it works gently.
How the herbs in LBS-II Work:
· Cascara sagrada bark influences the peristaltic muscles of bowel tissue and encourages the normal flow of bile and secretions of the stomach, pancreas and liver.
· Buckthorn bark is a powerful herb renowned for its ability to loosen the bowels. Licorice root gently supports peristalsis and general digestion.
· Capsicum fruit supports elimination and circulation.
· Ginger root supports digestion and helps allay nausea. It is gentle and soothing to the entire digestive tract.
· Oregon grape root supports the liver and gallbladder.
· Turkey rhubarb root is known for its support of bowel health.
· Couch grass herb provides gentle support to the intestines as well as the urinary system. Red clover tops are well-known blood purifiers.
CCE-W Pure Herbs Liquid Extract was used Historically as a Cleansing Corrective Extract, bowel cleaner, blood cleaner, antibiotic, poison antidote, deformations of hands and legs, arthritic complaints, gall bladder.
CCE-W cleans blood, bowel, nerves and repairs them. CCE-W works as an antibiotic, a poison antidote for bee stings and insect bites, and an outright corrective for numerous common and many baffling types of conditions. Its antibiotic activity is excellent. It can be taken internally and applied externally, as needed.
Dr David Watkins, founder of Pure Herbs stated about the CCE-W combination: "Many times, in the early stages of a flu, 1 Tbl. will just wipe it out. If needed to counteract a persistent threat, take 1 Tbl., or more, until the flu no longer threatens. If a baby or small child objects to the taste, or if the person is bedridden and cannot take by mouth, then rub in sufficient quantity to cover the entire abdomen instead of taking internally."
CCE-W contains: Aloe, Angelica, Camphor, Carline Thistle, Manna, Myrrh, Rhubarb Root, Senna, Theriac, Zedoary.
Whatever intestinal cleansing product is your favorite choice, it is a good idea to have some on hand as our weather turns cold and winter sets in.
