Does your colon feed you or poison you?

by Dr. Christopher

It is a known fact that well over ninety percent of all sickness and disease in the human body is caused by a congested (constipated) colon area.

When the bowel area is pocketed and ballooned with old fecal matter, trouble starts in that particular area and travels to the organ or part of the body being fed (through the autonomic nerve ring) via the blood stream by the impacted area. As an example, with the case of sciatica pains: A painful inflammation of the sciatic nerve, usually a neuritis. It is attended with paresthesia of the thigh and leg, tenderness along the course of the nerve, and sometimes a wasting of the calf muscles. The pain is constant, but subject to exacerbations (increase in the severity). In this condition we find that by cleaning out the bowel area and specifically concentrating on the sigmoid area. This section of the bowel is the lower part going from the descending colon to the crest of the rectum.

Stagnant, toxic fecal matter in this area, through the autonomic system drains toxic waste through the blood stream down the leg, irritating the sciatic nerve. Rapid relief has often been given by a deep kneading massage of the sigmoid area. The massage is done after using a few cups of our special bowel tonic (which will be given later in the article). In severe cases give an enema of a pint or more of cold catnip tea. Use only enough to be retained during the deep bowel massage. Also use a reflexology massage on the bowel area of the foot, clockwise, up the ascending colon area, across the transverse and down the descending colon to the sigmoid, then spend a goodly amount of time on the sigmoid and rectal reflex point on the feet. (You can follow these directions in the charts shown in this article).

Another case I recall was of a lady who had such terrific pains in her shoulders that she had not been able to lift her arms for three days. She just sat in a chair, suffering with intense pain, being fed and taken care of that way day and night for those three days! It was late, well after midnight, when I was called into the case. In order to give fast relief I took her right foot, and at the points of pressure of the ascending colon, near the transverse junction, started the foot massage. She screamed with pain as I applied the pressure on her foot. The reflex area in her foot hurt worse than did her shoulder. As soon as the pain left the foot area, where I was massaging, the pain in her shoulders was also gone and she could, to her relief, raise and exercise her arms and shoulders. This therapy took less than an hour to relieve the pain. I then informed her of the cause and instructed her in what to do to keep this condition from recurring. To work on and relieve the effect (pain) and not go to the cause is not completing the job at hand.

By working on the nerve reflexes (for the congested colon area) on her foot--the large pocket of fecal matter at the ascending transverse junction of the bowel was released. The toxic condition was no longer being carried through the blood stream up into the shoulder. Pain was gone and relief was felt. This was only the beginning (or temporary relief), because the weakened area would fill back up again in a short time when the same mucus-forming foods were used, and the painful effect would return.


To work on the "cause," one must clean out the bowel area, then strengthen it with herbal aids and proper nourishing foods, as Mother Nature intended.

We speak of constipation and think of it as only concerning, or applying to, the bowel area. The constipation backs up into the body so that veins, arteries, lymph, and even the cells of the body, are in a "constipated" condition. When far enough advanced, constipation is a killer and the cause of much sickness and pain. Why not take a few minutes and learn how to have a perfectly operating bowel area?


CONSTIPATION

Symptoms: A condition of peristaltic malfunction in the bowels wherein the fecal matter becomes condensed and the evacuations are infrequent and difficult. This condition is produced by our modern way of life--the eating of highly refined and demineralized foods instead of a plain and coarse diet, the strain and stress by rapid living, hastily eaten meals, and lack of exercise. When toxic matter is left to stagnate in the lower bowel tract, the system becomes polluted with poisonous gases which congest and irritate the surrounding organs, causing adhesions and other ailments. A person should have bowel movements as often as regular meals are eaten. This would normally be three bowel movements per day, but oft-times when the organs are working perfectly it is not unusual to have a B.M. upon arising in the A.M., one after each meal and one before retiring in the evening. So from three to five evacuations per day is normal. At any time the fecal matter voided is "formed", or hard, this means heavy mucus is still in the body. The perfect elimination is an easy flowing material. This should not be a liquid form as in diarrhea or dysentery.

There are many ways known to man to work on the "effect" of constipation and only a few for getting to the "cause" and cleaning it up.

On the market today are many commercial laxatives that work on the effect temporarily and lose their potency later on, making it necessary to change to another stronger brand. This carries on and on, always increasing with age, until enemas or colonics are then needed to assist in moving out this waste material. All of these are crutches and will eventually cause the bowel to become so weak it will be unable to ever operate on its own without help.

A few weeks back a lady approached me while I was lecturing in Texas, and told me how glad she was to find a formula like ours that would work on the "cause". She then stated she had spent over $380.00 for colonics. The X-rays now showed that her bowels were really clean, but when she started eating regularly again, the problem recurred.

True, the bowels were fairly clean, but the same sick, tired, weak muscles were there, as before, with no improvement. The colonics had only worked on the "effect", not the "cause", and had failed to give results. When the new concept of colonics with oxygen were brought into the market, I was very much against the principle. The very air we breathe runs approximately 79% by volume and 71% by weight of nitrogen. Pure oxygen used on an area for a comparatively short length of time will destroy the tissues by burning them. If a mouse is placed in a large jar of oxygen, he will frisk about and be excessively active for 20 or 30 minutes, and will then drop dead. But oxygen from plants, used as food and as a healing aid, will not destroy.

While practicing as a naturopathic physician in Wyoming, I used the needle, giving oxygen injections, releasing locked joints, bringing bruised areas back to a normal color quickly, and I was pleased with such rapid results. We discontinued the program after a short period of time, because we could see side-effects and after-effects from using the oxygen treatments.

Once, after looking into the iris of a man's eyes and seeing the horrible condition of his blocked up bowels, I asked of him how many days between his bowel movements, and his response was "two bowel movements a day"! Upon being questioned further (because it seemed impossible for such results), he said, "Oh, well, the rest of the story is, two enemas--two bowel movements, no enemas--no bowel movements." This is the perfect picture of a crutch.


Over a period of time the mucusless diet, with plenty of whole grains, fibers from fruits and vegetables, will do the job of regulation of bowel excretion, but after building up layer upon layer of mucous linings as coatings on the bowel walls it is best to use foods that are more specific in toning, rebuilding, and strengthening this area, and these special foods are herbs. For many years we have been recommending a lower bowel combination of herbs that have done remarkable good for many thousands of people.

In all basic cleansing and rebuilding formulas provided herein (unless there is a particular disease condition and need for a specific herbal combination), the program and procedure outlines are for the AVERAGE individual and meet nearly all general problem requirements--that is, unless (as we say) there is a need to prescribe specific help in herbal formulas for a type of problem that is very uncommon.

 

 

Ten of the most important herbs
by Dr. Christopher

There are well over three hundred thousand herbs--many of them have been life-savers over the years. Can we, then, list the "Ten Most Important", which should be kept on hand at all times for health or survival emergencies? This is a hard one--choosing the names of ten of my top friends, our herbs. Perhaps the best way to proceed is to choose one herb from each of ten major herb categories of which there are many more.

Hippocrates used twenty-nine herbs and their combinations to help keep the people of the Isle of Cos in a healthy condition. In our practice we use approximately one hundred common herbs to take care of any malfunction that has been brought to our attention. We will, therefore offer you a tithe of our herbs.

These ten herbs may be stored in any number of forms, bulk, capsules, tablet, tincture, concentrate, etc. Tinctures, syrups, concentrates and ointments if properly sealed can last twenty or more years and not lose potency. The bulk dry herbs should be put into cans such as the type in which bulk honey is often sold. The lid should be pressed in tightly and sealed carefully with a paraffin wax. All stored herbs should be sealed in this way with paraffin.

The diaphoretic herbs are the ones to be collected in the largest amounts. A pound per person of these herbs in their dry form is not out of line.

If the dry herbs, capsules or tablets can be sealed hermetically so much the better. It would be wise to store the seeds from as many of these herbs as possible. Label them well and seal them up for use in times of natural disaster.
Herbal remedies for strep throat or sore throat
 

from “Safety of Herbs” - A Healthier You Radio Show with Master Herbalists David and Fawn Christopher

We have been effective dealing with strep throat with a very simple combination of herbs.  This is a very valuable formula that has saved us hundreds and hundreds of dollars in medical expenses and gotten us over these kinds of conditions quickly.

Here’s the formula:

* One tablespoon of pure honey
* ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
* Four cloves of garlic pressed through a garlic press

Those are the proportions, but you’ll need more than that, so take four tablespoons of honey, one teaspoon of cayenne pepper and sixteen pressed cloves of garlic, and mix that all together.  Take ½ teaspoon to one teaspoon of the formula every 30-60 minutes.

Don’t wash it down - let the honey coat the throat, then the cayenne, being a rubefacient, will bring blood into the area, and then your immune system will be stimulated with the garlic.  Garlic is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral, so anything that may be causing the sore throat the garlic, along with the cayenne and the honey coating the area, will take care of the problem.

How long does it take to get over strep throat with the standard medical procedure?  10 days.  This herbal remedy will generally get you over strep throat in 24 hours.

Let’s look at another thing - the doctor who wrote the book, “Don’t Drink Your Milk” (Frank Oski, M.D.) observed through his case studies that his patients who drank milk were the ones who got strep consistently, while his non-milk drinking patients did not get strep, so milk is certainly a factor in strep throat.

Garlic, cayenne, honey - another safe and effective herbal remedy with no side effects.  You know it is going to work, and it’s going to work nine days faster than the standard medical procedure.

(Note on the honey - it needs to be pure honey.  Most beekeepers feed their bees sugar, which weakens the bee’s immune system, so they get mites coming into the hives.  To prevent mites from coming into the hives they give them antibiotics, further weakening the immune system of the bees.  Find local honey where the beekeeper doesn’t feed the bees sugar and doesn’t give them antibiotics.  You can often find good results if you check with your local health food store.)

Chicken Pox

by Tara Christopher Eyre

We had a wonderful time together this past Christmas with family members that lived near us, then packed up and travelled to Boise to spend a week with the other side of our family.  The day after we arrived my three year old woke up with spots all over his torso, legs, face, head and arms.  Chicken Pox!  Although the timing was terrible, I was happy that he had chicken pox so that my three children would become immune to this childhood disease.  I just wish it could have waited another week!

I usually pack a small bag of herbs when I travel and this time was no exception.  I had Kid-e-Mune, Kid-e-Reg and Raspberry Leaf Tea.  As soon as we discovered the spots I started a fresh batch of tea, gave Chandler 2 dropperfuls of Kid-e-Mune, and stuck him in a hot bath.  My kids know this routine well, and they don’t like the cold shower that accompanies it, but they have learned that this is a therapy that speeds the healing, and they really have no choice in the matter!  The hot bath kicked his immune system into gear and his spots really multiplied during the next 12 hours.  I gave him Kid-e-Mune every hour, Kid-e-Reg 3 times a day, and as much Raspberry leaf tea as he could drink.  The only food he took was the stash of Ruby Red grapefruit I had also brought along.  I started each day with a hot bath, kept up the herbs and he made it through the worst in just a couple of days!  By the third day he was feeling much better, just beginning to scab over and was back to playing with his brother.  I continued the routine for a few more days, phasing out the hot baths and lowering gradually lowering the amount of Kid-e-Mune and tea.  Although we didn’t leave the house, he was able to enjoy the rest of our stay and his pox didn’t even bother him during the 7 hour drive home!

Topher (5 years old) and Asia (8 months old) broke out 2 weeks after we found Chandler’s spots.  It was good to go through the experience at home with my whole herb cupboard available!  With them I continued the hot bath/cold shower, Kid-e-Mune, Kid-e-Reg, Raspberry Leaf Tea and grapefruit, but added fresh squeezed orange juice and homeopathic remedies, which really took the edge off the itching for Topher.

For those who are interested in the homeopathic remedies I used - for Topher I used Rhus Toxicodendron and Pulsitilla.  I wish I would have had Antimonium tartaricum while we were in Boise for Chandler! There were six choices in my “Homeopathic Medicine at Home” book, and those are the ones that best described our situation.  I have the beginning homeopathy course through the school, so just the basic stuff, but it worked!  

Again, with both Topher and Asia the worst was over in just a couple of days. 

I am thankful that I was able to support my children through this childhood disease with a few simple procedures.  Herbs, remedies, love and time provided a life long immunity to chicken pox—without a vaccine—and for that I am grateful!

HERB OF THE MONTH
Calendula
 

by Jared Tropple, MH

Calendula has been used since the Roman times for healing wounds. It is bright yellow to a beautifully brilliant orange and contains volatile oils, tannins, and resins that help with inflammation and speed healing. It also has Antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral properties.

Calendula has been used in countless salves as a primary ingredient for skin rashes, diaper rashes, minor cuts, chapped lips, and minor burns. A strong tea made from the flowers makes an excellent foot soak for athlete’s foot, a facial wash for acne, or a mouth wash for canker sores.

To make a Calendula Salve first make an infused oil by covering the 1/4 cup of flowers in 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil in a closed jar for at least two weeks. After two weeks the oil should have turned a darker yellowish color. Strain off the flowers through a muslin cloth and pour oil into a stainless steel or pyrex pot. Heat oil on low and grate about 1/8 cup of beeswax. After it has melted take off heat and add 40 drops of essential oils (I would add Lavender). Pour into the jar you intend to keep the salve in and store in a dark, dry place. This salve should last at least a year if not longer if stored properly

Not only is it fun to make your own herbal medicine but you can tailor it to your specific needs. Calendula is a wonderful herb to add to many herbal formulas.
