Help Clear Toxins Naturally With Homeopathy: “All Sickness Begins In the Bowel”. Homeopathy can normalize your intestinal functions which will improve your general health. The old saying which says that : “All sickness begins in the bowel” happens to be true. In curing any disease, the first thing in wholistic medicine is to clear the bowels and normalize their functioning.
The bowel is responsible for many things. The processing of food and the absorption of life-giving elements is one of the main functions of the bowel. But the other main function, which concerns many of us from time to time, is the elimination of the waste products after the food has been processed.
Now it is important for these waste products to move quickly through the intestines. Agricultural chemicals, and chemicals found in processed foods, make it even more important that the elimination processes work well, as when these chemicals sit around in the bowels, disease will set in.
If the action of the intestines is too slow, which results in constipation, then you will be absorbing the toxins from those waste products back through the walls of your intestines and into the blood. This happens when the material in the bowel sits around for too long. If this is a habitual thing, then the poor cells of your body become poisoned over time, and weakened. The liver becomes overloaded, as it cannot rid the body of these poisons which are continually being fed back to it through the blood. This state of constipation sets the stage for degenerative diseases such as cancer and arthritis, or multiple sclerosis and parkinson’s disease, to take hold. You are also more susceptible to contracting infectious diseases such as the flu virus when your intestines are clogged.
Fasting and Roughage: This is why fasting occasionally, and taking remedial measures to keep those bowels functioning efficiently, is very very important. Fasting regularly on raw fruits and vegetables and their juices, and eating plenty of raw salad material each day, which provide roughage and vital enzymes, can do a lot towards preventing constipation, and preventing cancer.
Drink Plenty of Water: Many people suffer constipation because they forget to drink enough water, or any at all. If you are a big coffee drinker, then you need to drink at least an equivalent amount of water compared to the volume of coffee you imbibe. Coffee is dehydrating, and being dehydrated is one of the common causes of constipation.
So – You need to pay attention to the diet to prevent constipation, and drink plenty of water to keep those bowels running smoothly and keep your health good.
The Grated Apple and Potato Cure: To Be Taken Before Meals: This is a very simply home remedy for constipation. The recipe provides much roughage to clean the bowel out, and it also provides plenty of healing vitamins, minerals, and pectin to nourish and heal the bowel. A good amount of Vitamin C is taken into the body by using this apple and potato cure on a regular basis. All you do is grate one whole, washed potato, with its skin still on; then grate one apple, skin and all. Mix the two together and eat the whole lot 20 minutes before breakfast. Then repeat the whole procedure before lunch, or before the evening meal if you prefer.
This is very healthy for the body and the intestines. It helps to prevent candida occurring, and will help your hair, teeth, bones and nails to stay healthy. You can keep doing the apple and potato cure indefinitely. You will never get scurvy or constipation again.
As well as these dietary measures, you can do a lot to cure constipation and restore the regular functioning of the bowel by the taking of a Homeopathic remedy. Three of the most effective Homeopathic remedies for constipation are Nux vomica (called Nux vom.), Natrum muriaticum (called Nat. mur), and Graphites.
Dosage for Nux vomica: This is a good remedy if the patient is sensitive and a bit run down and depressed. Often there is a nervousness, and sensitiveness to cold: the patient feels chilly. These people often like stimulants such as coffee, tea and alcohol. The Nux vomica remedy helps to counteract the effects of these stimulants. Menstruation is often copious with the period beginning early and lasting longer than usual. A 6X dose can be taken several times a day, for several days or until the problem ceases. The 30C potency would be taken once a day. Stop taking the remedy when you are better. The 6C or 12 C potencies, can be bought at most health food stores, and some pharmacies.
How To Order Homeopathic Remedies: Weleda Products in Havelock North, Hastings area, New Zealand, make homeopathic preparations and also grow their own organic herbs and plants for the use in their medicines. I like to support the Weleda brand whenever I can, as they have a long tradition of making homeopathic remedies, and so their homeopathics are the ‘true blue’ and unadulterated recipes.
Castor Oil is a famous home remedy for constipation. Castor Oil is a wonderful rejuvenator of the liver. It is used in many alternative cancer treatment programmes. It is also used to help people with arthritis. Cancer and arthritis can develop because of a life-time of constipation and clogged, toxic bowels. The fact that this famous bowel remedy is used to treat and cure cancer is indicative of the relationship between toxicity in the bowel and cancer. A healthy, clean bowel which is free of toxins will serve as an immunity against cancer and degenerative disease.
In treating serious degenerative conditions such as cancer and arthritis, Dr Gerson used 2 tablespoons of castor oil every second day for many months. But of course, this dose would not be used by ordinary people for the sake of treating constipation.
Dose Of Castor Oil For Constipation for when the bowels are clogged. One or two tablespoons could be taken in the morning, followed by a cup of ginger tea, or black coffee, or chamomile tea. This could be taken once a week as a remedial measure, to help to clear toxins from the liver as well as the intestines. I believe castor oil is a preventative of cancer, arthritis, and other diseases, because of the fact that it attracts poisons to it. This has a deep cleansing effect of the tissues throughout the body, not just in the intestines.
Vitamin C For Constipation: Use 1000mg of calcium ascorbate, which is a non-acidic type of Vitamin C. Take with a large glass of water. Repeat the dose four hourly until you get results. A remedial dose of Vitamin C can be taken regularly – 1000mg per day should work to keep those bowels regular. Remember to take plenty of water with it.
Tamarind for Constipation: Tamarind is used in Indian cooking. It is a complement to the curry spices. Tamarind is an effective laxative. Take half a teaspoon in a glass of hot water. It is necesary to take a glass of milk, or yoghurt, or coconut milk straight afterwards, as tamarind tends to draw out calcium, as it is high in oxalic acid. Milk of any kind, and fats and oils, help prevent this happening.
