After the Festive Season Over Indulgence: The Colon Cleanse

Did you over indulge over Christmas? If so, now is the time to reduce the bloat, and clean out all the rubbish that has accumulated in your guts with Oxygen.

Candida Cleansing, Colon Cleansing and Oxygen

Oxygen, Oxygen Oxygen: The key to eradicating candida?

Our two most popular products for candida control are Threelac and Fivelac. (There is an article comparing Threelac and Fivelac here). These are probiotics with unique bacterial strains, which when used persistently seem to be particularly effective at helping candida sufferers. This is based on the great feedback we have been getting from our customers for the last 15 years. We highly recommend these products - taken patiently - initially for about 8-12 weeks on 2-3 sachets per day. If they don't work, we suggest trying other probiotic strains such as SymbionBiokult Candea, or Latero-Flora.

But where it comes to candida, probiotics, despite their undoubted usefulness, and are amongst our most important products, they are not the be all and end all for everyone. Two of the most important things that most candida sufferers need to consider is cleaning their colon's.

Why?

Basically this is because it is very hard to heal candida in someone who is constipated or where their insides are full of gunk that has encrusted on the gut wall.  It's like trying to push water uphill. A sluggish bowel will allow, and probably encourage the proliferation of candida, (as well as parasites). Many candida sufferers are constipated. In some cases Threelac, Fivelac and other probiotics help with this, but in general the oxygen colon cleansers discussed here are much more reliable specifically for promoting regularity.

Anyway, if you're not sure whether you are constipated or not, ask yourself the following four questions

1) When you go to the toilet, do you usually have to strain?
2) Are your stools very dry?
3) Are they formed like lots of little pellets or balls?
4) Are you going to the toilet less than twice per day?

If the answer to any of the above questions is "yes", we would say your bowel movements are not regular enough. Being constipated is disastrous for general health for all sorts of reasons which we won't go into here. It also makes it hard to lose weight if you have a tendency towards being overweight. In relation to our main topic, if you have candida and are constipated, this makes getting rid of the candida into an uphill battle rather than a gentle downhill slope. Candida and other dysbiotic microorganisms thrive in a constipated, sluggish environment. Is that what you want?

If you have candida you may need to treat your constipation : -

If you are constipated, we usually recommend ColosanOxy-Powder or Mag 07. In virtually all cases this will have the following benefits: -

  • Ease constipation (though you may have to experiment a little to find the right dosage for you).
  • According to some sources, and based on the feedback I get from customers, tremendously help with candida overgrowth.
  • Enable you to continue on a more robust dosage of probiotics such as Threelac or Fivelac if constipation is holding you back.
  • By oxygenating the body they have many additional general health benefits beyond the scope of this article. As far as we are concerned, they are not just for candida cleansing and colon cleansing.
  • It's also great for flattening your tummy, and losing weight from around the waist. Actually they aren't so much weight loss as waist loss products, however many customers have been pleasantly surprised by this effect.

Do the colon cleansing products "cure" candida?

We are frequently asked whether the oxygen colon cleansers will get rid of candida directly. The suppliers opinions on this question seem to vary, so you won't get a consistent answer from them. Nonetheless we get phone calls all the time from people who claim that it has reduced or eliminated candida. The question is are they right?

Since candida is considered to be an anaerobic micro-organism, it would seem logical that using an aerobic (oxygen based) colon cleansing product would help. We are not aware of any clinical studies that demonstrate this, but many candida sufferers report that taking ColosanOxy-Powder or Mag 07 has eradicated or reduced their intestinal candida, and we have no reason to suppose they are lying.

What we are pretty sure about is that whether or not the colon cleasne products cure candida, a sluggish colon predisposes towards getting candida and other dysbiotic micro-organisms, and that a lot of people with candida have a tendency to constipation. This is not conducive to preventing or eradicating candida. We therefore believe many, in fact probably most people benefit from using one of the colon cleansers.

Which one is the best one?

We get asked this question so often, yet it's obvious that if there was only one which was always the best one, we wouldn't bother to sell three different ones? I mean why would we be bother to waste our time and your money if there was one that was the best one, for all the people, all of the time? So there is really no point in phoning us to ask us which one is the best one (even though we get these calls on a daily basis). They are very similar and in most people they work in a similar way for to one another. But we go get individuals who say that one worked better for them than another one  - sometimes drastically so. So if necessary, try more than one of them out for yourself, then you decide.

We also would say that its a very good idea to consider rotating between two or even all three of them every two to four weeks, especially if you are the type of person who tends to try products which work at the beginning, but then stop working after a while. This phenomena is called habituation (it's just a fancy way of saying "the body getting used to products until they stop working"). The best way to prevent this is to to keep rotating them so that the body doesn't get the chance to get used to them.

Can these products be used at the same time as having colon hydrotherapy, or to compliment colonic irrigation treatment?

Yes (we wish all the questions we got asked were as simple to answer as this one!)

Products to prevent colds and flu's over the holiday season

 A quick summary...

1) All Vitamin C products boost immunity, and helps combats viral infection and pretty much all infectious disease. However our best selling one - for good reason I might add, is Tapioca Vitamin C - and I take this product myself. This form of Vitamin C is not expensive but it is special. Here is some typical feedback on this unique ultra-pure Vitamin C product from one of the practitioners who uses it on a daily basis : -

This is, by far, the best Vitamin C supplement I have ever used. Where most Vitamin C supplements absorb at 20% or less, this Vitamin C is of a very high quality and you will notice the difference very quickly once you start using this product. Most of my clients use this product and my entire family as well as myself is using it for around 2 years now. It will help to maintain good immune system; it also acts as a great Antioxidant and it is the ideal product for ‘Vitamin C Mega Dosing’ where required.

2) Zinc (our recommended one is Zinc Ascorbate) and Selenium (more or less any of them) also help tremendously in preventing viral replication.

3) Better still, take as an all-in-one product which combines Vitamin C, Zinc, Selenium and other important antioxidants. We sell a number of similar products, but based both on value for money, and the actual balance of the nutrients provided, we think that Antioxidant Supreme which I take myself is the best one. This one does not have as pretty a label as some of the more established brands we sell. This does not detract though from its supeiority. In fact a tremendous amount of thought, effort, love and time has gone into producing and balancing this product. My own mentor used to say (repeatedly!) that everyone who wants to optimise their health should take this or something similar, long term. The only important vitamin antioxidant that's missing from this product, and for some reason almost all similar ones is...

4) Vitamin D, which close to 100% of people are deficient in during the winter. Having healthy Vitamin D levels is highly supportive to immunity, whereas being deficient is highly unsupportive (there is also overwhelming evidence that people who are chronically and long term low in this vitamin are statistically more likely both to get cancer, and if they do get end up with this awful illness, less likely to thrive and recover). Of the Vitamin D products we provide, we think this is the best one and is the one I personally use (although almost any Vitamin D product would be better than nothing), and is beneficial for almost everyone.

5) Anti-Viral herbs. Our top choices would include Pau D'Arco (also known as Lapacho), Samento (a much more powerful form of Cat's Claw), Barberry (which has similar properties to Golden Seal), and Olive leaf extract.

6) Support your adrenal glands. I could (and in ths past have) write a long newsletter on this subject alone. But cutting a long story short: Strong adrenals = strong immunity. Weak adrenals = low immunity. Our top choices from this category are Licorice Formula (or the more gentle Licorice Formula A for sensitive individuals), Adrenal Support and the unique, though rather pricey NADH.

7) Keep your colon clean and well oxygenated. As Dr Edward Group of Global Healing Center puts it, "Regular intestinal cleansing with an oxygen based colon cleanser like Oxy-Powder can support your immune system by providing a balanced, clean environment for probiotic bacteria to thrive. The positive benefits of intestinal cleansing with Oxy-Powder are enhanced when it’s paired with a good probiotic supplement."

9) And finally, as stated above, consider probiotics. Probiotics are NOT just for gut health. They also support immunity.

This isn't necessarily the be all and end all, but this is a good quick ABC of keeping health and vibrant over Christmas. Have a Happy Christmas or Chanukah if you celebrate these festivals. And if you don't just have a fun relaxing break!
