Some Info. about Infections and Dry Intestines: Tuning up the Works

Posted by Mary Jackson on October 13, 1998 at 23:17:47:

Here is some wise info. by Dr. Michael Biamonte (Naturopath and Clinical Nutritionist at http://www.health-truth.com:
************************************************************
If there is a chronic infection in the body such as yeast, parasites, Epstein Barr virus, Lymes disease and so on, the body
concentrates all its effort on eliminating the infection. If other problems exist at the same time, such as poor energy, digestive
distress, high cholesterol, arthritis or what ever, the infection drains the body"s ability to correct anything else. So the infection
must first be eliminated.

Infections tend to make the body toxic as dead white blood cells used to fight the infection build up and clog the system. They
also tend to weaken our digestive systems leaving foods only partially broken down and putrifying in our intestines. When the
body is toxic it is also difficult for it to absorb, transport and utilize vitamins. So the next step is to purify the body, especially
the intestines which is where we absorb nutrients.

In cases where an infection is not present we would start by cleansing the system so it can be prepared to absorb the nutrients
which are needed to heal it. The major reason why vitamin programs fail is because the body was not clean enough to take in
and use the vitamin.

When this is done the body can absorb what it needs to begin healing. And much like an engine which has now been cleaned
and fueled it can run better and produce energy. Now it will gladly except vitamins and supplements rather then getting sick
from them.
************************************************************
In addition to having a system with clogging white blood cells we can have dry intestines according to Sheila Shea (http://www.sheilas.com). This causes lowered mobility, an increase in stagnation, inflammation, infection, and weakened immunity. I am looking into kidney strengthening to help such a situation, and of course it's important to get adequate beneficial fluids. Mary J.

What is the best (and cheapest) way to cleanse the intestine and how long does it take? Is there any side-effects while doing a cleanse? Also, should re-establishing healthy intestinal bacteria be done at the same time? And while I'm asking, does a cleanse help lessen yeast overgrowth?

Dear LL,

I am not the best expert to be asking this although I do know something about it. In my practice I had a knowledgable Certified Colon Therapist to whom I would refer patients who needed this. My job was to find out who could be benefitted by colon cleansing and get them to see the therapist. I learned by observing his notes AND the person's progress in light of what I knew about the patient's problems.

Having said that, I would recommend finding a Certified Colon Therapist and seeing her/him in consultation with all of your medical records in hand. You might also consider learning about the 4-R program by going to the website at healthcomm.com or calling (800) 843-9660. Let us know what you learn.

However, I have to remind you that a normally functioning colon does that all by itself better than anyone else can. These therapies MUST be seen as a temporary help WHILE the person is dealing with why they have LGS AND its complications (allergies, parasites--including candida, malabsorbtion of minerals, etc.).
