There are a number of herbs which are traditionally known to assist in the cleansing of the colon. They can be used alone or alongside colonics or enemas to deepen the cleansing effects of those treatments. One of the advantages of taking a herbal cleanse is that taken orally, the herbs cleanse the whole digestive system, the stomach, the small intestine and the large intestine.
At the College of Herbs and Natural Healing where Sandra Hillawi trained and qualified as a Master Herbalist and Colonic Therapist in 2000 the tradition was to use herbal formulae developed by Dr Christopher and Dr Richard Schulze for cleansing the colon. Here are the formulae below.
The herbs are taken in the following way. IF2 as capsules, with food or at mealtimes, stimulating the natural peristalsis, to increase bowel movements and speed of transit. IF3 is made up as a drink, taken between meals several times a day. Going through the system alone, it is able to dissolve cleanse draw off and detoxify deposits on the walls of the intestinal system, binding it into a fibrous bulk and passed through for exit.
