There are many reasons for constipation. To begin to reverse this condition, the colon must be relaxed and opened. Moving material through and out the bowel is like moving a golf ball through a sock. The sock cannot be constricted so much that it cannot open enough for the golf ball to be pushed along. Similarly, a contracted bowel tube (from laxative use) must relax before it can contract to push material along. Resorting to laxative herbs to move the bowels is like trying to push feces through a hardened contracted tube. With time, and without sufficient magnesium, this can result in bowel compactions due to continued contractions. This colon cleanse makes use of magnesium which is so often all that is necessary to restore healthy bowel movements because it relaxes the colon muscle. An added benefit from taking Magnesium is that muscle tension throughout the body will ease.
Since the ultimate goal is to get the muscle to work properly I strongly encourage doing the Abdominal Massage especially the scooping up part BECAUSE, people reading this kind of post have likely been bearing down to have a bowel movement and in so doing have flattened the sigmoid colon in the lower left pelvic making it VERY difficult for feces to escape. Scooping is the remedy.
Start with this magnesium pre-cleanse before doing any other bowel cleansing programs including parasite cleansing programs. Use Magnesium (#1786-6) or whatever Magnesium you tested for.
Directions for Your Magnesium Pre-cleanse
We are going to find the level of magnesium your body needs – everyone is different. When you get a soft stool or diarrhea, your level has been exceeded by 2 tablets (500 mg). So continue on 2 less tablets per day.
First Day: one tablet of Magnesium (#1786-6)
Second Day: 2 tablets: 1 – morning, 1- lunch
Third Day: 3 tablets: 1- morning, 1- lunch, 1-dinner
Fourth Day: 4 tablets: 2 – morning, 1 – lunch, 1 – dinner.
Fifth Day: 5 tablets: 2 – morning, 2 – lunch, 1 – dinner
Sixth Day: 6 tablets: 2 – morning, 2 – lunch, 2 – dinner
Seventh Day: 7 tablets: 3 – morning, 2 – lunch, 2 – dinner etc.
If your level hasn’t been reached, continue adding 1 more tablet/day. When the stool is loose, the bowel is finally responding to the magnesium deficiency and relaxing. You may notice other muscles in your body also starting to relax. I have had some people need 8-12 per day. Say it takes you 8 tablets on the 8th day to become loose. Then the 9th day you would skip and the 10th day you would take 6 a day and that would be your dosage for a while. With time you will find you’ll need less.
After your bowels are moving reliably, then you can begin other cleansing programs.
Consider this…..I have learned more from very sick people than I have from double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over studies. My sick clients taught me how to get them well - things that even my teachers didn't know. I have such smart clients.
