[FAQ] Healing Cleanse: Colon: Working File Thread


This is an FAQ working file thread.  Please do not ask questions in this thread.  Feel free to add valid information/research and or testimonies.


Products Used:

Intestinal Healer/cleanser #1 (Cathartic Formula) & Intestinal Healer/Cleanser #2 (Drawing & Detoxifying Formula) or in short form IF# 1 & IF# 2.



IF #1 - Organic Aloe Leaf/Gel, Turkey Rhubarb, Cascara Sagrada, Senna lead/pod, Barberry,                                       Garlic, Ginger, Cayenne.                                                                                                                                    

IF #2 - Organic Psyllium Seed & Husk, Flax Seed, Apple/Fruit Pectin, Slippery Elm Bark,                                               Marshmallow Root, Peppermint Leaf, Bentonite Clay & Activated Charcoal.


Therapeutic Action:

Intestinal Corrective Formula #1 & 2

IF# 1 - This stimulating tonic is both cleansing, healing and strengthening to the entire gastro-intestinal system. It stimulates your peristaltic action ( the muscular movement of the colon ) and over time strengthens the muscles of the large intestine, halts putrefaction and disinfects, soothes and heals the mucous membrane lining of your entire digestive tract. This herbal tonic also improves digestion, relieves gas and cramps, increases the flow of bile which, in turn, cleans the gallbladder, bile ducts and liver, destroys Candida albicans overgrowth and promotes a healthy intestinal flora, destroys and expels intestinal parasites, increases gastrointestinal circulation and is anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal.

IF# 2 - This cleansing and soothing formula is to be used periodically in conjunction with Intestinal Corrective Formula #1. This formula is a strong purifier and intestinal vacuum. This formula will draw old fecal matter off the walls of your colon and out of any bowel pockets. It will also draw out poisons, toxins, heavy metals such as mercury and lead, and even remove radioactive material such as strontium 90. This formula will also remove over 3,000 known drug residues. Its natural mucilaginous properties will soften old hardened fecal matter for easy removal and also make it an excellent remedy for any inflammation in the stomach and intestines.


Why should I cleanse my colon:

"No living organism, no matter how large or small, can sustain life unless it can assimilate the nutrients it needs and expel toxins/waste effectively".

Every organ, system and cell in our body IS dependent upon this process - NOT one system/cell works correctly if it does not have the fuel & oxygen it needs and/or it is clogged or laden with sludge & toxins (toxin: a politically correct term for poison). And it's all dependent (lungs/brain included) on 'the main tube' that runs from our mouth to our rectum. Clog the exhaust of ANY engine? The engine eventually malfunctions in every system. Completely clog it? The engine dies. Give an engine the wrong kind of fuel? EVERY part eventually fails. Add poisons and substances not appropriate for the engine? Disaster. We'll NEVER get all the other parts (symptoms) functioning correctly, until we get 'the main tube' functioning at peak (and get the fuel right in and the poisons out).

At the same time, we must ensure that we stop poisoning ourself/systems and that we're able to assimilate the high-grade fuel we're ingesting (and spending so much money on). From the time they started feeding us unnatural foods (that couldn't be digested, assimilated and expelled in 6-8 hours after eating them), we've adversely affected the strength & musculature of our upper/lower intestines. Picture this: instead of swallowing every bit of food/water you eat in a day, after you chew it halfway and mix it with saliva/digestive enzymes, you spit it into a glass jar, tightly cap the lid, and put it into a dark place with the temp around 100 degrees...what will happen? In 12-24 hours the jar will likely explode from the pressure of the putrefying gas. For most of us, ever since we've been a toddler (day after week after month after year), our intestines have been stretched/expanded by the gasses of unnatural/dead foods that take too long to digest & eliminate. This stretches and weakens the musculature of our colon, which of course, adversely effects peristalsis (the squeezing motion of the intestines).

Now, add to that, all the mucous forming foods. Egg whites have been used for centuries as glue (they will hold bricks/buildings together). Dr. Christopher (while never recommending milk), used a tea made of mullein & milk to cure extreme intestinal bleeding. Why? the milk mucous "sticks" to the lining of the intestines allowing the mullein time to 'do it's thing'. So all those 'soft scrambled eggs' and bottles of cows milk made a nice thick layer of mucous all over our intestines, and since we're all full of gas & only pooping a couple of times a day or less (as a toddler), it starts building up and adversely affecting our 'main tube' even more. As we poop less AND assimilate less (due to the mucous covering the tiny villi that absorb the nutrients and send them to the liver for processing) we end up ingesting even more unnatural food because we're hungry! And so the cycle continues until we're either constipated (having less than one bm for every meal) or we have some form of IBS or other 'digestive syndrome'. But wait, it gets better (worse) add a daily portion of chemical poisons.

'Tis theorized by V.E. Irons (and accepted by most natural healers that ever read it): Just like the liver starts creating bile the second oil touches the tongue, and the pancreas start making insulin the second anything sweet touches the tongue, the intestines create a micro-thin layer of mucous whenever a chemical poison touches our that the poisons are captured by the mucous and sloughed on in the next bowel movement, thus preventing the body from assimilating poisons (which would be taken *directly* to the liver from the intestines, hence burdening the liver). Now whether or not we actually 'secrete mucous upon poison ingestion' really doesn't matter, because by the time we're in our teens (or earlier with many constipated children), we have a VERY thick layer of rubbery, toxin-laden mucous lining our intestinal tract, and whether it's designed to "capture" poisons, or they just soak into it...the fact remains that this "mucoid plaque" is the most acidic, putrid, poison-laden substance in our body. And EVERY molecule of food & water we ingest has to soak through it before assimilation, and then it heads directly to the liver (as if the liver wasn't busy enough already) feed and nourish our body. Yum...not. This rubbery mucoid plaque also weakens the muscular of our intestinal tract and provides the perfect feeding/breeding grounds for parasites & candida. There are many natural healers that say if it weren't for the parasites burrowing through the mucoid plaque (so that nutrients can get to the lining of the colon for assimilation) and candida overgrowth to feed on it, we'd be in far worse condition than we are. 'Sure sounds logical to me, but I can't say for sure.

Anyway, there's two other "tube issues" that are very important. 1) The intestinal tract comes into contact with virtually EVERY organ in the body (surprise!). It is NOT like the pictures and diagrams we see where there's space between everything. Even if we had NO build up of mucous & mucoid plaque, we'd have several POUNDS of putrefying food (and gas!) to swell the colon, which puts unnatural pressure on virtually every organ in the body...including the spinal column. The uterus/ovaries are tightly wrapped by the sigmoid colon (my first colon cleanse totally eliminated early menopausal symptoms of a 6-10 pound monthly fluid gain, vicious cramps -that I could SEE as well as feel- for three long days, 2 weeks of brutal PMS & emotional swings, abnormally heavy bleeding/clotting that require 2 super+ tampons every two hours for nearly three days). My uterus and ovaries had been SQUISHED for years (and that might have even been the cause of my lifelong battle with PCOS & infertility). And it eliminated acid reflux...which is virtually ALWAYS eliminated by a *thorough* colon cleanse & diet change. Think of it, our digestive tract is a tube, and everything in it is supposed to move DOWNWARD...yet acid from the stomach is moving UPward into the esophagus (the only place where stomach acid can be felt). WHY is it moving unnaturally upward? Because of too much acid? Nope, because all the gas from the mucoid plaque and undigested, rotting food is pushing it upward. And the same gas that has the ability to push acid from the stomach into the esophagus, also has the ability to negatively impact the flow of bile from the liver/gallbladder and pancreatic/digestive enzymes from the pancreas into the duodenum, and create hiatal hernias (and other types of herniation). Not to mention the transverse colon pushes on the liver, pancreas/spleen, wraps around the sciatic nerve, and touches on the kidneys, hence adrenals. There's no organ or system in the body that's not effected by a swollen colon/intestines...and it doesn't matter if the issue is constipation or over-frequent bms (IBS).

Below is what Dr. Schulze has to say about colon cleansing.

The colon is the cork in your bottle. If you don't cleanse it, the wastes from your head to your lowlands can't get out of you.  Unless you have worked in a clinic with dying patients, you just won't "get it" how many diseases come from bad colon function. 

If you don't cleanse the colon, the other organs can't cleanse their wastes.

INTERVIEWER: Everyone thinks it's a wellness thing, cleaning the colon. They don't really think it changes health.

SCHULZE: They don't think that it will affect them if they have a tumor, or if they have kidney infection, or if they have heart disease. They don't understand that even if you can clean the plaque out of the arteries — if you can't get the bowels cleaned out also, it's going to go right back in the body. You'll just re-absorb it. The body doesn't want to dump wastes unless it knows the colon is working. These bodily systems are connected. When your appendix is giving information to your bloodstream, that's picked up everywhere.

INTERVIEWER: The body appears to know when the colon is blocked?

SCHULZE: Absolutely. But when you get that colon brand-spanking clean, it's unbelievable the catharsis that's going to take place. Your body will start pulling poisons out from everywhere. Because it knows it can.  Also, you have to remember that wastes from the colon, as we'll see in a moment, can overflow the colon and pollute other organs. You can treat those other organs with natural methods — with only partial results — because these organs keep getting re-infected or re-irritated by particles from the colon.

The Merck Manual says that all Americans — if they live long enough — will have herniation of the large intestine.

SCHULZE: I find that most medical books nowadays back up natural healing. I quote from The Merck Manual daily to my patients. This is from Merck, Sharp and Dome, the largest drug manufacturer in the United States.  According to the latest edition, Merck, 16th edition, I'm quoting,  "Every person will have many." That's many herniations. It's a hundred percent now. It says that if they live long enough, every American adult will have herniation of the large intestine. They say that it increases rapidly over age 40 and in every person.  Now Dr. Christopher said this 50 years ago! And they laughed at him. They ridiculed him. He said that the bowel has pockets in it. And that these pockets contain fecal matter. They laughed. They said this is the most ridiculous thing. They said, "We know the bowels don't have this." And he goes, "The bowels have pockets, they contain fecal matter."  And then he went on to say that if it stays in there long enough, it will leak into your body and cause what he called auto-intoxication. Again, the doctors laughed. They swore at him. They ridiculed him.  I saw people who were natural healers go, "This is ridiculous".  They said, "We have looked in bowels and we don't see this. We don't see these sacs of poop." I'll tell you why they missed them.


SCHULZE: Doctors used to always miss these because they are not inside the bowel, they are actually outside the bowel. So from inside the bowel, you can hardly see them, so when you go into the bowel with a scope, they look like little black dots. And that could just be a piece of fecal matter. They think that's only a small piece of fecal matter stuck on the wall of the bowel. But behind that fecal matter is one of these bowel pockets.


How constipation causes appendicitis.

INTERVIEWER: So, the pockets are outside!

SCHULZE: Yes. In 1991, they came out with this, their newest chart, diseases of the digestive system, and it shows right here diverticulosis of the colon, and how the external herniations are filled with poop.  But what's even better is over here in the book; fecal obstructions are causing appendicitis. They are now saying that appendicitis is caused by fecal matter stuffed down into the opening which doesn't let the

appendix release its fluid, and so it inflames. So this isn't some faulty organ, this is constipation causing appendicitis.

INTERVIEWER: Do any natural healers keep up on these things?

SCHULZE: No. Nobody reads this. The Merck Manual is the Bible of diagnosis and treatment for the medical profession in the United States.  Medical doctors don't even read these. I buy every edition and read from front to back. It gets better as the years go along. They basically say that diverticuli occasionally are responsible for rectal bleeding and they often become inflamed causing diverticulosis.  It says they are asymptomatic, so people don't know they have them, and.. .here's the best part, what do you do?  "Treatment: a bland diet is not indicated for persons with diverticulosis. For normal colonic functions, the diet should include a sufficient intake of fluids and roughage from whole wheat bread, bran cereal, fruits and vegetables."  This is what Dr. Christopher said, "If you get constipated, then you will get bowel pockets, and the best way to get rid of them is a mucusless diet, whole grains, bran, fruits and vegetables." They are just quoting Dr. Christopher right in the modern medical books. Isn't that incredible!  And then it goes on to discuss diverticulosis, the inflammation of the diverticuli, of those sacs protruding from the colon wall. It says that small, even minute, perforations of the thin-walled diverticuli due to inflammation or high colon pressure from constipation leads to —guess what? — bacterial and fecal contamination of the inner tissues.

INTERVIEWERS: Inner tissues?! There you 've got it seeping out and that is in The Merck Manual. What edition? Page what?

SCHULZE: This one here is page 813 and 814 of the 15th edition of The Merck Manual. They only publish them every 5 years. This was the 1987 version. And here we have something that Dr. Christopher claimed for years and every medical doctor I have met said it was ridiculous. Now, this is in the 1992 Merck Manual. Most people can buy these in Crown Books. But I was shocked, and I have to say my jaw dropped when I saw this next one: "Diverticuli, acquired sac-like mucosal projections through the muscular layer of the colon/rectum. Occur anywhere in the large bowel, but usually in the sigmoid and rarely below the rectum. Vary in diameter, most diverticuli are multiple, they are uncommon in persons younger than forty but increase rapidly then after that, so that essentially every person will have many."  That's the bottom line. Essentially every person, so forget the 10%, the 20%, the 15%, the 30% that they quoted in earlier editions.  Essentially every person will have many. That's the bottom line.

According to The Merck Manual, these bowel pockets leak pus, blood, and fecal matter back into the


INTERVIEWER: That means people are full of pockets.

SCHULZE: Sure. Full of bowel pockets, that's right. Patients will say to me, "I had a couple of bowel movements today, 'every day'. Do I really need to clean my bowels." According to The Merck Manual, every person will essentially have many herniations — and there are no symptoms.  So just because you're regular doesn't mean you don't have these little sacks of poop bulging on the outside of your colon walls.


INTERVIEWER: And inside of those protruding sacks can be inflammation, which means pus.

SCHULZE: Absolutely. When that fecal matter comes out of there, and Dr. Christopher used to say it too, it's not just going to be clean, healthy tissue. There is going to be worms under there, there is going to be pus under there, it's going to bleed.  That's why even in his colon formula, he put cayenne for the bleeding, goldenseal for the pus and for the infection. He designed it because he knew that these infected sacs were there.  Now the question I've always had is: How did he know these were there? How did he know that everybody had them in their bowel because, according to medicine, they didn't know that until 1992. That was nine years after his death.



What is the cleanse cycle for this protocol:

If you've never done a colon cleanse you should do at the very minimum a 30 day cleanse.  Some people cleanse for months, it just depends on how impacted your colon is.  The "normal" person can have up to 22 pounds of undigested rotting food in the colon that is sitting there putrefying, fermenting and going rancid. Knowing that should be enough for anyone to want to cleanse their colon.  This question is covered in detail in the "Why should I cleanse my colon" and in the "Required reading" section. 


Considerations/What can I expect: 

If you have been constipated, especially if you have been for years, your bowel may not work perfectly at first.  Just imagine if you had an old car in your garage that you hadn't started in years. The first time you go to start the engine it will shake, rattle and roll and smoke, backfire, make exploding noises, maybe even shoot flames out the carburetor.  Then after about 15 minutes it will start running smoother once it is warme ups.  Your bowel is the same.  If it hasn't worked properly in years, you may notice a little gas, or slight cramping, or even an occasional backfire, do not be alarmed.  This is usually caused by old fecal matter that is being flushed out and will subside usually within a few days.  There are many herbs in the formula to reduce the chances of this happening, but if it does, KEEP GOING and keep using the formula.  

It is possible you will remove/pass lengths of rubbery mucoid plaque that are similar to the image below; it is also possible that the build-up will come off in much smaller pieces (that wouldn't be noticeable when embedded in the fiber of the IF#2)




 Be sure to take the IF# 1 with food or with the IF# 2, if you take it by itself there is the possibility that you'll get nauseous.  When juice fasting you'll want to make sure you take them both together since you won't be eating solid food.  You can put the IF# 2 in a little of your favorite juice but it can also be taking with water.  Be sure to drink at least 8oz. of distilled or RO water after each dose of IF# 2, this is in addition to the amount of water that you drink on a daily basis.  We should all be drinking at least a gallon of water a day.

Suggested Reading Before Asking Questions:

You can never become "dependent" upon IF#1.  The cathartic herbs are NOT addictive (our body does not get used to them and then stop working because you've used them).  Actually, just the opposite happens: everytime the herbs in the IF#1 come into contact with the colon walls, they stimulate the colon to squeeze.  This strengthens the muscular of the colon (unlike things like Epsom Salts, typical laxatives, enemas... all of these things when used regularly as a substitute for natural bms weaken the colon, hence, they ARE "addictive".  What you can do, is start out constipated (having less than 3 bms daily), take the IF#1 for a time, stop taking it (without having done much of anything else {below}). 

What generally happens in that case, is that for a few days (even up to a week), the colon being used to the help and having it totally withdrawn, reverts to it's old pattern.  BUT because your intestinal tract is used to moving the food right along and now the colon has reverted to it's old pattern, there's a period of constipation/inactivity, before everything readjusts to normal.  Thousands of people over the decades have "screamed" - "IF#1 made me WORSE!!  It's addictive and it weakens your colon!"  And they've 'screamed' it SO often, that it's become a "truth" (just like zillions of other things on CZ: like you must use Epsom Salts for a liver flush, or water fasting is a safe and easy way to heal.)

You can use IF#1 safely for decades - there is likely nothing worse for your health than not having 3 or more bms daily.  If you don't want to use IF#1 for decades, then you should be sure to do 'the following':

--thoroughly cleanse the colon from decades of mucoid plaque (which generally takes months of cleansing - although not necessarily all at the same time). IF#2 is the deep cleanser & healer of the colon.

--cleanse & restore your liver --bile from the liver IS our natural IF#1--

--eliminate meat & dairy from your diet (meat has ZERO fiber, and slows down digestion incredibly; all dairy is mucous forming -think glue-)

--eat a diet that is at LEAST 75% fibrous raw & whole foods (grains in the their WHOLE form, not flour products), fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, sprouts - and the oils thereof.

--Ensure that you are NOT dehydrated - at the very MINIMUM we need "1/2 our body weight in ounces of PURE water daily" - so if one weighs 150, they need 75oz of water daily.  A gallon is better :)

--EXCERCISE - MOVE - ensure you colon isn't "squished up" in a chair 12 hours a day.  No body can repair itself if it's deprived of natural flow and totally squished out of shape.

--Eliminate poisons from your food - it is theorized that the colon produces a thin layer of mucous everytime a toxin/poison is ingested (to capture the toxin so it doesn't assimilate).  The more poisons you ingest, the more mucous you get.

THEN, after doing these things consistently for a few months (or a few years, maybe, depending upon how badly your colon has been damaged, impacted, stretched out and compromised) whileusing the IF#1 to strengthen your colon (that has been horribly compromised for DECADES), the human body is SO miraculous, that you'll be able to wean off the IF#1, and enjoy perfect colon health.

Below is a fantastic post that illuminates how/why our colon has become so incredibly abnormal & unhealthy.  Below that is a link to a video of Dr. Schulze talking about IF#1 (and explaining why it's not addictive, and answering several readers questions).  And below that is a letter from Dr. Schulze. Scroll down to the paragraph that starts: First things first (and foremost) and read just how horribly compromised our colon has been since we were toddlers.  This is very important to know and understand!

Dear Dr. Schulze,

I have been seriously constipated for years and want to try using your Intestinal Formula #1 and eventually do your 5-Day BOWEL Detox Program, but I am afraid. I have heard that taking bowel herbs can be addicting and I would like to know what you think. Also, I have a friend that has been taking your Intestinal Formula #1 for years and she wants to know if there are any dangers of taking it indefinitely?

    --- Sarah C.

Dear Sarah,

Most people start taking the Intestinal Formula #1 and feel great immediately. They love it. They begin having regular, frequent, softer and complete bowel movements, probably for the first time in their life. They lose weight, their tummy gets flat, but then a few of them wonder, can I take this formula for a while or a month or six months or a year, or even indefinitely? And of course the answer is very simple: To poop or not to poop... that is the question.

The downsides of constipation are almost infinite. You can have sickness, illness, disease, immune weakness, low energy, back problems, headaches, leg pain, menstrual irregularity, hormone imbalance, erectile dysfunction and prostate problems, emotional problems, bad digestion, poor assimilation... numerous diseases, including diverticulosis and herniation of the intestine due to fecal matter impaction.

Modern medical books say that 100% of ALL Americans, before they die, are going to have herniated intestines due to lifelong constipation. I saw hundreds of patients that developed cancer in the bowel simply because of constipation. I also saw every disease and every illness helped by cleaning out the bowel, no matter what it was. You may think that your disease or your problem is totally unrelated to your bowel, but let me tell you, the old natural healers knew it, and they were right. You clean out your bowel and miracles can happen. I have seen everything from chronic back pain and migraine headaches, to every disease known, be relieved and helped by a thorough colon cleansing like my 5-Day BOWEL Detox. For many of my patients, their disease or chronic problem just disappeared.

Now, for those whose diet and lifestyle inhibit them from having regular bowel movements, or those who have inherited sleepy and sluggish bowels, GET STARTED taking my Intestinal Formula #1 IMMEDIATELY! START taking the formula IMMEDIATELY to get your bowel movements normalized and regular until the time comes when your bowel works perfectly on its own. What's the downside? I don't know of any. Besides the cost of the herbs, there's none that I'm aware of.

Rumors suggest that constant use of cathartic herbs will become addicting, but I've never, ever seen this. Constant use of cathartic herbs with no lifestyle changes, no food program changes, no movement changes and no attitude changes, well, if you want to continue to poop, you better keep taking the herbs. Intestinal Formula #1 will make you have normal, regular and frequent bowel movements no matter what you eat, drink and think. So if you want to call this addiction, so be it, but I call it staying healthy in spite of yourself!

On the other hand, I've seen thousands of people worldwide, including myself, that used Intestinal Formula #1 for years and then, when their lifestyle was corrected and adjusted enough, the bowel started working naturally two to three times a day on its own, and they were completely able to wean off of this herbal formula entirely. I'm one of those. I took the formula for over ten years before my lifestyle, my exercise program, my new emotional program and all of the good things I was doing kicked in enough for me to feel better and have those regular two to three bowel movements a day, where my bowel moved thirty minutes after each major meal. So it can take some time, especially if you have years of hard living or bad living habits or, again, have inherited a very weak, sleepy bowel.

Once my patients would start having regular bowel movements without the formula, the only time they used Intestinal Formula #1 again was during episodes of constipation, usually Thanksgiving, Christmas, and any time the family gets together and eats, or when they traveled... any time they temporarily abandoned their healthy lifestyle program and it resulted in constipation. Then you can use Intestinal Formula #1 on a temporary basis to keep your bowel working, but believe me, my patients didn't get addicted.

I always like to use the analogy—it's like taking your bowel to the gym. If you go to the gym and do isolated bicep curls, that workout your biceps muscles, after a while, your biceps muscles get much stronger, and when they're stronger they work better. When your colon is sluggish and weak, taking my Intestinal Formula #1 actually stimulates and tones your bowel muscles to move more, and this is what causes you to have better bowel movements. Over time this muscular movement and toning makes your bowel muscles stronger, and stronger bowel muscles work better on their own. This is the opposite of addiction; this is healing.

Finally, back to the bottom line “pun intended”, it is a matter of having bowel movements or not, and considering the disease and downsides of constipation, I highly suggest that you get your bowel working right away. Immediately. TODAY.

Tomorrow is what you Believe and DO Today!
