Seasonal Cleansing and Detoxing, Why Should You, How To, Plus the Truth about Constipation, Prolapse of the Transverse Colon, Mucoid Plaque and Autointoxication Are They a Hoax, Quackery or a Cancer Time Bomb?

Published by at 9:17 am under Diet,Health,Herbs

When I had cancer 20 years ago; I went to a number of seminars where speakers talked about different forms of natural healing, Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, etc.   The most motivating of these was a presentation by a doctor of Thompsonian Naturopathic medicine; his subject was “The Colon and Colon Cleansing”, the event was awesome thanks to Epic Events.   I had no interest at all in the subject but I had read a few remarkable articles by the doctor and I wanted to hear him speak.

One extraordinary thing about the lecture was the response of the people in the room to what the speaker said about the colon; remember this is 20 years ago.   He made a lot of jokes about the American people being the most constipated in the world followed by England and Germany; the reaction to that was a lot of nervous laughter.   Then, he spoke at length about individual constipation with a few more jokes and more nervous laughter.   Then he said that modern medicine has spent 50 years denying that constipation and the health of the colon have anything to do with disease.   He said that this was ironic because the name “Physician” comes from the word physic which means to clean out the colon; they are colon cleaning doctors.   This went on for at least 10 more minutes.   Throughout the lecture I found it interesting to observe the reaction of the audience and myself to the subject and what the speaker said.   It was to some degree a taboo subject at that time, no one talked about it and yet here was this speaker; breaking all the rules and we all laughed as he did so.

Then he got serious and talked about why the colon is so dangerous if it is not taken care of.   By the end of the lecture I knew that a major reason I had cancer was because I had not been taking care of my own colon.   I never paid any attention to how often I went.  I did know that sometimes I did not go for a day or two, more for all I knew.   Sometimes I went from not going to having the runs (called spastic bowel) which might go on for a few weeks to a month, from constipated to the runs over and over.   I felt bloated all the time and I had flatulence almost all of the time.   In those last few years there had been times when I saw blood in my stool, which worried me greatly.   I was very inspired by his lecture.  I took the notes he handed out (see bottom of page). I bought the 2 formulas (Colon Cleanse and Colon Detox), and I went home and started taking the cleanse that night at supper.   I made a lot of other changes beginning that night and I did a lot of work on myself beyond cleansing and detoxing (see my website http://www.theherbprof.com/).  Three months later my prostate cancer symptoms were gone.

Now, I do not specifically remember the exact words he said that day.   But I have been studying the subject of Thompsonian Naturopathic medicine for the past 20 years.   Plus, I went on to earn myself a doctorate and I am a practicing Thompsonian naturopathic doctor.   So I will give you the best information I have from my own knowledge and experience and the experience of others on the dangers of the colon and how to protect yourself.

The Formation of the Colon and its Intimate Connection to the Rest of the Body
How can this 40 inch long sewage system cause us any problems, why should we worry about what happens there?   Well, if we look to when this part of your anatomy was first created you will start to get a real clear picture of what is going on inside of you and what a time bomb it can be.   When you were first conceived and the cells started to divide; the first thing that was formed (called Gasrulation which means “gut forming”) was a small tube called the primitive gut.   Now, you are going to have to picture this in your mind.   From this primitive gut, nerve fibers began to grow outward in all directions, kind of like a tree.   Out at the ends of these nerve fibers your organs and nervous system formed.   Consequently, from your skin down to your bones you are connected by these nerve fibers to this tube.   As this creation of your body continued toward completion, this tube took its place in your body as your colon.

This intimate nerve connection between your colon and the rest of your body still exists today and reaches out to everything including your brain and eyes.   This system is absolutely harmless unless your colon habits are poor or in other words you are constipated.

Why, do we get constipated in the first place?   Well, your bowel moves the waste products through it by a process called peristalsis, which is a muscular contraction of the wall of the bowel causing a wavelike motion moving the waste from one end to the other.   This peristalsis occurs when the bowel senses that waste products have entered it.   The bowel senses the waste products are there by the amount of indigestible fiber that is in the waste.   The fiber gently scratches the inside walls of the bowel stimulating nerves there which cause the peristalsis to start and continue until that waste has been eliminated.    If there is no fiber in the waste then the bowel does not sense there is anything there and no peristalsis occurs, you are constipated.

Though there is no peristalsis you will still have bowel movements but they will mainly be caused by the pressure of the waste building up at the beginning of the bowel; forcing the fecal matter to move through the bowel to the rectum.   This causes the fecal matter to be in the bowel too long.   The bowel will continue to recover water and minerals from this fecal matter causing it to become dry and thus harder resulting in difficult bowel movements for the individual.

Diverticulosis and Diverticulitis
This same pressure causes diverticuloses and diverticulitis (see images blow).  These are pockets or bubbles forming on weak places on the bowel wall.   The pressure forms a pocket pushing to the outside of the bowel, this is diverticuloses (you may never physically feel these). The pockets can fill with fecal matter and become infected, this is diverticulitis (these can cause pain).Diverticulosis


 Modern medicine has denied that diverticula in either form existed among Americans.   This denial went on for some time until the Merck Manual, the bible of modern medicine, said in the 1950′s that the majority of Americans will have this disease as they reach middle age.   This is proof positive that the majority of Americans are a constipated people due to their diet.
Constipation Cause
What is it that is causing the constipation problem?   Well we all know that refined white flour and all the products made from it are a well known culprit of constipation.   But did you know that refined white flour has so little food value that bread made from it cannot sustain life for laboratory animals such as mice, rats, and guinea pigs (white rice also has no food value); interesting since at the time of the bible it was called the staff of life?   When you buy bread or flour for baking in the market, look for the words 100% whole wheat.   If it says anything else it is refined and valueless.   Don’t be fooled by wheat breads.  If the ingredient enriched flour is on the label, it is refined flour colored with molasses or food coloring.   One more trick is to list the number of whole grains in the bread like 5 Grain or 7 Grain, but if you read the ingredients you will invariably see refined white or enriched flour listed.  So you end up with a few grains in each slice of constipating bread.   Other constipating foods and drinks are cheese, fried foods, sweets, salt, beef, pasteurized milk, white rice, all junk food, wine, carbonated drinks, and coffee (causes dehydration), also add many medications.
Prolapse of the Transverse Colon
Another problem that occurs is due to the amount of fecal matter in the colon.   The section of the bowel that crosses the body called the transverse colon becomes heavy and begins to sag. This is called prolapse of the transverse colon (see images below).   This prolepses puts pressure on all the lower internal organs causing many menses, stress and toxicity problems.

What Are Good Bowel Habits?
What are the optimal bowel habits for excellent health?  A baby is the perfect example.  Ask any parent about when their baby has a bowel movement.  They will say that their baby definitely goes within an hour after they eat.  Why within an hour?  Because we all have an autonomic nerve, the vagus nerve, that sends a message to the bowel that food is entering the stomach and it is time to eliminate.   Another clue to good bowel habits is the average transit time from your mouth to anus is 12 to 15 hours.   If you average that out it equals 2 to 3 bowel movements per day.   When you eliminate at that proper rate your movements will be soft not formed or hard.

Here is what modern medicine says about healthy bowel habits; “Careful observations have shown that the bowel habits of healthy individuals can vary greatly; although most people have a movement daily, some have several movements each day, while others can go several days or even longer with no adverse effects.”

I have two problems with what they just said.   One, many Americans eat meat 3 meals a day as though they were a carnivore.  A carnivore’s digestion is only 3 hrs long, nature’s way to prevent purification of the meat in the animal; and they want us to believe that 72 or more hours is ok?     My second problem is, who were they observing, the average American?  If they were, they got the answer that they wanted to get.   I am sorry but the average American is hardly a good example of healthy bowel habits; especially since the highest rate of cancer for both men and women as a group in America is colorectal cancer (55,000 Americans died of it last year).   Maybe they should go to Asia for their study, where the rate is the lowest, and tell us what are they doing right.  Could it be the amount of produce they eat?

We are also one of the sickest countries in the world where modern medical drugs are not doing the job they were supposed to.  The World Health Organization now ranks the United States 37th in health services when we were ranked number 1 leading the world for years.   Maybe we need to look to simple answers in our history; the health answers we are looking for may be there.

Mucoid Plaque
Mucoid plaque is yet another problem associated with constipation.   This mucoid plaque is a buildup on the inside walls of the bowel because of constipation and the texture of the waste passing through the bowel.   Fiberless refined foods are like a paste that covers the walls of the colon.   Add to that the slow transit time of the waste due to constipation and the chemicals (medicines, alcohol, and pollution) that come with the food and water irritate the inner walls of the bowel.   The bowel’s response to this is to excrete mucus to protect itself from this toxic exposure.   This mucus mixes with the waste creating the mucoid plaque.   Once mucoid plaque is created, it is not routinely excreted from the bowel like common waste material.   Instead the plaque gets trapped in the numerous folds and crevices of the large intestine.   If conditions do not change, more plaque and waste can begin to build-up and can remain there for many years growing thicker and firmer.

It is estimated that the average person can have between 4-25 pounds of this mucoid build-up  matter in their colon–and it can just keep accumulating over the years!   In extreme cases, on autopsy; the mucoid plaque weighed up to 40 pounds and the colon was distended to a diameter of 12 inches (see photo below).   In these severe cases the person ends up eliminating through a small tunnel in the plaque in the center of the colon.   Through this tunnel the feces moves, it is called “tunnel elimination”.   That 40 pounds was due to caked layers of encrusted mucus, mixed with fecal matter, strangely resembling hardened rubber.

Mucoid plaque may vary greatly, depending on the persons diet and bowel habits.   This plaque may be hard, it may be dense and concentrated, and look like a casting of the inside of the bowel.   The mucoid plaque can be wet and rubbery, soft and thick or transparent and thin; it can range in color from light brown, black, or greenish-black to yellow or gray, and sometimes emits a particularly foul odor.

My own experience with mucoid plaque:   As I fought the cancer I had, one of the tools I was using was cleansing and detoxing my bowel with a herbal combination.   First the cleanse, then the cleanse and detox together (I was also alternating liver and kidney cleanses, 5 day).   A lot of foul stuff started coming out at first, mixed with the detox which was a dark gray color.   The third time I did a detox and cleanse together a casting came out just like the photos you have seen.   It was a turning point for me as big positive changes began to happen in my health.  My skin got clear and soft, my strength and energy came back and so did my appetite.   I still had other symptoms but I could see that this system of healing worked and so I pressed on even harder with more cleansing, detoxing and other techniques.

That was 20 years ago and every year since then I have done cleanses and detoxes using the same products and herbs each season of the year.  That is a total of at least 80 of them.   The lifestyle changes I made, I have kept.  In fact I have improved on them.   Now here is the twist; I have not seen another casting since that first one, none.   Which has been the argument of the medical profession, that the cleanse and the detox herbs cause the mucoid plaque.   I also know colon therapists who use only distilled water with sometimes a little oxygen, no chemicals or herbs, who see the same mucoid plaque described.
Autointoxication (Could it be the leading cause of everything from Alzheimer’s to Cancer)
The Big Four, Constipation, Diverticula, Prolapse of the Transverse Colon and Mucoid Plaque Equal Autointoxication

All three problems, the constipation, the diverticula, the prolapses of the transverse colon and the mucoid plaque release toxicity into the body called autointoxication.   How can this happen in a closed environment like the colon?   One thing that is happening constantly is the bowel is trying to recover water and minerals from this toxic waste and this chemical toxicity will be drawn in just like the water and minerals are.   Another is that the bowel is permeable just like the rest of the body.  Put a chemical on your skin and there will be absorption of some of this chemical into your body.   Leave chemically toxic and putrefying fecal matter in your bowel for long periods of time and the chemicals and the elements of the putrefication will move through the walls of the bowel into your body, just like a tea bag.   That is how autointoxication causes symptoms and diseases.

Also remember what we discussed earlier about the bowel being covered with nerves from the development of your body, starting after conception.   These nerves move from the outside bowel walls to every organ of your body from your skin down to your bones.   These nerves do not live in a vacuum.  If there is a toxic, putrefying mess in your colon these nerves are affected by it.   The toxicity will move up the nerve pathways to cause problems wherever these nerves end.

Alzheimer’s disease is a very good example of this. Many of these nerves are coming off of the transverse colon and they go directly to the brain.   Mucoid plaque is the colon’s answer to the toxic irritation there.   Could it be that amaloid plaque (see study below) is the brains answer to the irritation it is experiencing from the same toxic mess?
Researchers – including Bradley Hyman, Director of the Alzheimer’s Unit at Massachusetts General’s Institute for Neurodegenerative Disease – recently used new visualization technology to view plaques forming in the brains of mice genetically engineered to develop Alzheimer’s. They made two important observations:

  • Plaques appeared to form before other changes occurred that characterize Alzheimer’s, suggesting the plaques may cause the disease rather than result from it;
  • Plaques accumulated rapidly, sometimes becoming disruptive enough to affect nerve cell function and spark inflammation within 48 hours.

Poisons Found in a Toxic Colon
Insecticides, lead, aluminum silver, gold, selenium, mercury, cadmium, strontium, cesium, and many kinds of inorganic dust including traces of nerve gases.  Other Chemicals: Phenol, Cadaverin, Agamatine, Indol, Sulphurretted Hydrogen, Cresol, Butyric Acid, Botulin, Putrescin, Urrobilin, Histidine, Ammonia, Muscarine, Methylmercaptan, Indican, Methygandinine, Idoethylamine, Sulpherroglobine, Ptomarropine, Pentamethy Lendiamine, Neurin, Sepsin.

These are just the tip of the iceberg, with over 10,000 chemicals in the air, water, and food in America, 3,000 of which have never been tested for toxicity.   It’s no wonder Alzheimer’s disease is reaching epidemic numbers along with about 65 other new autoimmune diseases that modern medicine admits, “we do not understand the cause for these diseases”.  

Here is modern medicine’s answer to autointoxication.   “In 1919 and 1922, it was clearly demonstrated that symptoms of headache, fatigue, and loss of appetite that accompanied fecal impaction were caused by mechanical distension of the colon rather than by production or absorption of toxins. Moreover, direct observation of the colon during surgical procedures or autopsies found no evidence that hardened feces accumulate on the intestinal walls.”

Interesting argument, but weak.  How many chemicals were in the environment at that time, and if there were any, how would they test for them?   So now that we know that our population is exposed to 10,000 different chemicals and heavy metals along with all these new deadly diseases, maybe it is time they ran that test again; independently.

Step By Step, breast augmentation gold coast process / How To Do A Colon Cleanse And Detox Yourself at Home
Why use this program when there are others out there like the Master Cleanse?

I suggest this style of cleansing and detoxing for three big reasons.   One, I personally used this one on myself, when I was deathly ill, and it worked beyond my greatest expectations (see my biography).   Two, I personally know of at least twenty people who have used this program who were at least as sick as I was and it worked for them.   Three, this is probably the oldest cleansing and detoxing program in this country and possibly the world.   Personally, I appreciate a long successful track record when it comes to my health.

This program is broken down into two parts done without pause.
One, cleansing the colon takes at least 7 days.
Two, colon-detoxing takes 5 days exactly.
***There is a third part, cleansing either the Liver or the Kidneys takes 5 days exactly (see
     website http://www.theherbprof.com/  Program section for instructions)

PART 1 – Colon Cleanse

Takes seven days or more if needed. You will find all the herbal combinations are in organic or wild crafted form on this web site.

Note: You will not need to alter your daily schedule while you are taking these herbs.  They are gentle and they are introduced to your body in micro doses, until you get the natural response described below.  


DAY 1:
Start with only one capsule of Colon Cleanse combination during or after supper.   This combination works best if taken with food.   If you notice a heartburn sensation, eat or drink more to mix this combination with the food in your stomach.   While you sleep, the herbs work their way through the colon stimulating peristalsis to soften and move old fecal matter, and kill any parasites.

In the morning you should notice an increase in your bowel action and in the amount of fecal matter that you eliminate.   The consistency should also be softer.  If you do not notice any difference in your bowel behavior today, or the difference was not dramatic, then tonight increase your dosage to two capsules.

Continue to increase your dosage every evening by one capsule until you notice a dramatic difference in the way your bowel works the next day.   It has taken most of us years to create a sluggish bowel so be patient for a few days and increase by only one capsule each day.

By the end of the first week, you should know what your dosage is.

If not, then remain on this formula for an additional week to get your bowel regulated and healthy before you go on to the next step.

When I say regulated and healthy, I mean you have a bowel movement two to three times a day, which is how often a healthy human being has a bowel movement.   Being healthy, the movement is soft like a baby’s and falls apart in the water.

Ingredients of Colon CleanseThese herbs are designed specifically to increase bowel function, and kill parasites.
Curacao and Cape Aloe leaf (aloe Spicate/ferox), Cenna leaves and pods (Cassia officinalis), Cascara Sagrada aged bark (rhamnus purshiana), Barberry root bark (Barberis Vulgaris), Ginger rhizome (Zingiber officinals), Garlic bulb (alium sativum) and African Bird Pepper (Capsicum africana).    All of these herbs are organic or wild crafted

PART 2 – Colon Detox

Takes five days. You will find all the herbal combinations in organic or wild crafted form on my web site.


Day 1:
Continue taking Colon Cleanse capsules this week.  Add 1 or 2 more capsules because the detox formula can cause constipation.   At the beginning of Part 2 is when we begin to start the Colon Detox formula.   You will take this formula 5 times each day beginning in the morning.   The function of these herbs is to remove toxins and old fecal matter from the lining of the bowel.   It is hard to believe but some people you probably know, possibly yourself, are carrying around pounds of old fecal matter (some have as much as 50 to 70 pounds of fecal matter).

Mix 1 heaping teaspoon of the Detox formula powder with either 8 oz of water or fruit juice in a small jar, put the lid on tightly and shake vigorously.   Drink quickly at times listed below.

1. First AM, one hour before you put anything in your stomach.
2. Do the same one half hour before lunch.
3. At approximately 3 PM.
4. Approximately one half hour before dinner.
5. One hour before bedtime.

Ingredients of Colon Detox: (herbs designed specifically to absorb and remove toxic substances)

Organic flax seed (Linum), Apple Fruit Pectin, Pharmaceutical Grade Bentonite Clay, Psyllium seed and husk (Plantago species), Wild Crafted Slippery Elm inner bark (Ulmus fulva), Organic Marshmallow root (Athea offcinalis), Organic Fennel Seed (Foeniculum vulagare) and Activated Willow Charcoal (Salix alba)

    Wow good stuff, thanks for the good read.

    I have normal bowl movements two, three a day. Can I go direct to detox?
    should I detox? No health problems except pre hypertension.

    Hi Gene,
    Sorry I missed this Comment of yours. Yes you could but you would want to
    take one or two cleanse caps with it because the detox is a bulking agent and
    can constipate you.
