Colon Cleansing: Natural Health for Your Intestines

By Stephanie Relfe B.Sc. (Sydney)

Colon cleansing uses natural health & herbs to help your body to heal health problems which are often related to a colon which is not functioning as nature intended.

All right.  It’s a dirty subject.  But what if no one talks about it?  More people have problems with their colon than most people realise.

More and more people are suffering from health problems, including pain, constipation and lack of energy which can be related to a dirty bowel.

These problems do not happen by accident. Many of these problems are caused partly or largely by eating and drinking foods and drinks which are not what nature intended we eat and drink.

Wild animals who are living as nature intended do not generally get these problems.  You owe it to yourself to LEARN about how you can prevent and even heal these health problems and diseases.

There is no “one way”, no “magic bullet.  But there are ways that work.  The best methods include:

  • Improvements in nutrition (what we eat AND drink)

  • Cleanses

  • Rebalancing the intestines and ileo-cecal valve with kinesiology.

These are the very things that your doctor won’t tell you about – because they never learned them. The average doctor learns around 4-20 hours of nutrition during a FIVE YEAR degree. Their job is to make money by selling drugs and operations. YOUR job is to look after your health and wellbeing.

For example, no one makes any money telling you to drink more water, which is essential for a healthy colon.

In addition to learning about nutrition, many people have had great results from doing different cleanses, of the colon, kidney and liver & gall bladder

The MOST important cleanse to do is colon cleansing, because if you have a dirty colon with impacted fecal matter, this will create extra toxins which the other organs then have to continually detox.

The Merck Manual, the medical industry’s standard text for the diagnosis and treatment of disease, tell us that colon degeneration is increasing at an alarming rate. Here are its figures for diverticulosis for people over 45 years old:

  • 1950      10%
  • 1955      15%
  • 1972      30%
  • 1987      Almost 50%


Modern natural healers prefer to talk about nice, clean things like vitamins. These are important, but are often money down the toilet because many people are rotting from the inside out because:

  1. They continue to ingest toxic substances, including caffeine, sugar, white flour, aspartame, microwaved food, hydrogenated fats and deep fried foods

  2. They don’t eat enough good food, or drink enough good water.

  3. They have impacted fecal matter in their colon

Some of the methods for colon cleansing don’t work any more.  This is because our diet is now so far removed from what it should be.  Our diet is generally now full of food which has been changed in many ways from what nature intended.  Chemicals are added, nutrients and fiber are removed, heating processes change the molecular structure of the food and destroy any life energy. 

In addition, we now get hardly any exercise, whereas our forebears used to walk everywhere. Not to mention the great damage that is caused by vaccinations. And then there’s the added stress from today’s style of living and electromagnetic stress (from computers, mobile phones, cars etc.).

Believe it or not, some healers have had people in their clinic who had only ONE BOWEL MOVEMENT A MONTH!!! 

Where did all that food go???? These people had their bowels frozen solid. Their other organs were being squashed by all the extra material down there. 

What is needed today for many people is a superior type of colon cleansing.

How often should one have a bowel movement? People in less developed countries living simple, natural lives have two or three bowel movements a day, without straining. They eat, and within fifteen to thirty minutes after their meal they wander off, squat and easily have a bowel movement that is usually unformed and light in colour.

I believe the main cause of constipation in adults as well as in babies and infants is not breastfeeding for long enough (which they do in undeveloped countries). Studies of large primates and mammals by Dr Katherine Dettwyler suggest that we should breastfeed to 1.5 to seven years old old! (See “The Breastfeeding Book” by Sears). Certainly we should breastfeed until all the teeth have come out, because teeth are an essential part of nutrition.

One reason for this is that breastmilk is super easy to digest, and contains lots of DIGESTIVE ENZYMES. It takes a baby months to learn to walk. How many months must it take for the body to learn to digest different kinds of foods? Breastmilk is meant to support the body through this difficult process, in gentle stages.

One of the real problems of today is that doctors themselves are so unhealthy.  Have a listen to the “Dead doctors don’t lie” tape.  In it Dr. Wallach says that the age of the average death of doctors is only 58 years old!!!  Over ten years less than the average person!!!

Doctors don’t study health.  They study sickness.  “Health insurance” should be called “sickness insurance”, just like we have “fire insurance” and “flood insurance”.  Having health insurance won’t make you healthy.

A client of mine in Dallas told me that many of her friends have a bowel movement only once every five days – and do you know what the doctors say when they go to them? They say that that is NORMAL!!!  It may be average – but it’s not meant to be that way. 

More and more people are finding colonics can be of assistance. However, be careful.  I went to a colon therapist in Sydney who regularly sends her clients to other clinics to see how NOT to do it.  She herself would give a person only 3 treatments.  Many colon therapists prefer to give 10 treatments – and I once had a client who had been going every week for years.  This is not good.  In addition, the colon therapist should remain with you and tap the tummy to help remove matter, not just hook you up to a hose and wander off. 

Ultimately, you need to get your bowels working by themselves. 

Herbs can do MUCH more than a colonic can.  They can not only clean and scrub, but also draw out old fecal matter and toxins, stop bleeding, disinfect, kill and expel parasites, destroy and remove cancer, kill Candida albicans overgrowth (which is a major contributor towards Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohns disease), regulate and balance intestinal flora, remove toxic metals (such as lead, mercury, radioactive metals) and strengthen the muscles of the colon to promote normal bowel movements (and therefore heal spastic colon).

Probiotics (good bacteria) can also make a huge difference as they are an essential part of digestion. Many of us don’t have all the good bacterial we should because of antibiotics and because our environment and farming practices are so far remove from nature. See if iFlora can help.

Many people believe that often problems that don’t appear to be related to the colon often improve with colon cleansing.  After all, when you step on a cat’s tail, it’s the other end that screams.

Pain and disease are caused by toxins.  And a dirty bowel is full of toxins. In addition, lots of extra material inside puts pressure on all of the other organs.

Before you consider surgery, you might like to read books such as “Confessions of a Medical Heretic”  to learn about the problems people can face AFTER surgery.  Remember, you can’t heal something once it has been removed. Doctors have never managed to MAKE a human body – so chances are if God gave you a body part, that body part is there FOR A REASON.

To clean the colon most people need to take BOTH Intestinal Cleanse #1 Formula AND Intestinal Cleanse #2 Formula (Exceptions are people who go too often as may be the case for Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohns disease – in this case, you need just #2.  See below).

Some times it seems from our sales figures that people are happy to take just the #1, because it is easier and it gets things moving.  But to heal the problem, it is essential to take #2 to clean out what is causing the problem in the first place. And it is also crucial to make improvements to what you eat and drink.



This herbal mixture is cleansing, healing and strengthening to the entire gastro-intestinal system.  It stimulates the muscular movement of the colon and over time strengthen the muscles of the large intestine, halts putrefaction and disinfects, soothes and heals the mucous membrane lining of your entire digestive tract.

It improves digestion, relieves gas and cramps, increases the flow of bile which in turn cleans the gall bladder, bile ducts and liver, destroys Candida albicans overgrowth, promotes a healthy intestinal flora, destroys and expels intestinal parasites, increases gastrointestinal circulation.

Curacao and Cane Aloe leaf The strongest cathartic, very bitter liver cleanser
Senna leaves and nods Strong cathartic, been used for thousands of years
Cascara Sagrada aged bark Strong cathartic.  Bitter liver cleanser.  Bile flow
Barberry rootbark Stimulates liver, gall bladder and bile flow
Ginger rhizome Increases downward peristalsis, contractions
Garlic bulb* Destroys candida and infection, and promotes healthy flora
Turkey Rhubarb Gets peristalsis action working better
Cayenne Pepper Gets things moving faster
Fennel Cleanses out matter that produces gas
Ginger Calms and soothes the digestive tract

*I have written elsewhere on this site how garlic has negative effects. People have asked me why I sell this if I think garlic is not good for us. The answer is that I am still in a quandary over garlic. I think it is possible that many people swear by garlic as a cleanser BECAUSE it is toxic. After all, if it kills bacteria, maybe it is not good for us? Obviously it won’t kill you. Perhaps the answer is that this is a temporary cleanse, not for a regular diet.

Making Your Own #1 Formula

“When first making this formula, start with equal parts of each herb.  As you use it and want to make adjustments, increase or decrease the individual herbs according to the action you are looking for.

Note from Stephanie Relfe: NO ONE should rely on the same herbs all their life. Remember that old peoples’ homes have many people who have used laxatives all their life and now can NO LONGER have a bowel movement – they evacuate only by enemas. It is important while taking #1 to keep working on ways to get your digestion working by itself. For example, take #2 to clean out the old stuff. Take extra fiber with your breakfast (psyllium, wheat germ, oat bran, rice bran). Improve your diet. Find a kinesiologist to balance your body’s energy and check your ileo-caecal valve etc.

INTESTINAL CLEANSE #2 (click here)


This cleansing and soothing herbal mixture is to be used periodically in conjunction with Intestinal Formula #1.  This formula is a strong purifier and intestinal vacuum.  It draws old fecal matter off the walls of your colon and out of any bowel pockets.  It will remove poisons, toxins, parasites, heavy metals (such as mercury, lead and radioactive metals).  This formula will also remove over 3,000 known drug residues.

Its mucilaginous properties will soften old hardened fecal matter for easy removal.  This makes it an excellent remedy for inflammation in the intestines such as Irritable bowel syndrome.    


Intestinal Formula #2 may be useful for food poisoning.  The bentonite clay, willow charcoal and apple fruit pectin are super-powerful absorbing agents. If you get food poisoning, or feel you ate something bad, the first thing is to vomit it out.   The best way to do that is to drink up to 2 quarts of warm water with some lemon or citrus in it.  Then put your fingers into your mouth and shove them down and tickle the uvula, the little thing that hangs down at the back of your mouth, and vomit. (If it has been a number of hours since you ate, forget the vomit routine and just take Intestinal Formula #2). Then take 4 heaping teaspoons of Intestinal Formula #2 in about 16 ounces of water. 

Flax seed Contains a natural cleansing and laxative oil
Apple fruit pectin Removes radioactive waste, mercury, lead, heavy metals
Pharmaceutical grade bentonite clay Removes 35 times its weight in waste
Activated willow charcoal Removes over 3,000 known harmful chemicals
Psyllium seed and husk Adds needed fibre, reduces inflammation
Slippery elm inner bark Removes toxic waste, reduces inflammation
Marshmallow root Reduces inflammation
Fennel seed or Peppermint leaf Carminative, aids digestion, moves gas

Making Your Own #2 Formula

Make this formula also using equal parts of each herb.  Then increase or decrease each herb depending on the desired action you want, intensified or weakened.


Remember, the more you improve your diet by eliminating the harmful substances that caused the problem in the first place and eat more healthy food such as fruit, vegetables, good supplements, and drink water, the more success you will have now and in the long run. For suggestions on what to eat and what not to eat see “Super colon cleanse” further on in this article.



Start with only one capsule of this formula during or just after dinner.  This formula works best when taken with food.  The next morning, you should notice an increase in your bowel action and in the amount of fecal matter that you eliminate.  The consistency should also be softer.  If you do not notice any difference in your bowel behavior by the next day, or if the difference is not dramatic, then that evening increase your dosage to two capsules.

You can continue to increase your dosage every evening by one capsule until you notice a dramatic difference in the way your bowel works. There is no limit.  Most people need 2-3 capsules but a few have needed a lot more.

This formula can be taken for a week, a month or longer.  Continue to use this formula until you are having one bowel movement each day for each meal you eat. Between two and four bowel movements a day is normal. (Note from Stephanie Relfe: NO ONE should rely on the same herbs all their life. Remember that old peoples’ homes have many people who have used laxatives all their life and now can NO LONGER have a bowel movement – they evacuate only by enemas. It is important while taking #1 to keep working on ways to get your digestion working by itself. For example, take #2 to clean out the old stuff. Take extra fiber with your breakfast (psyllium, wheat germ, oat bran, rice bran). Improve your diet. Find a kinesiologist to balance your body’s energy and check your ileo-caecal valve etc.)

DRINK LOTS OF WATER! At least 8 glasses a day, and more than this while you are on the cleanse. If you get any cleansing reactions such as a headache, continue drinking water.

After one week of taking Formula #1 you should take Formula #2 IN ADDITION to Formula #1 to continue cleaning the colon and help to remove some of the causes for constipation.

NOTE: People whose problem is having too many bowel movements, such as some people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, should omit Formula #1 and use just Formula #2.


To be done for at least two weeks.

For breakfast have a Nutritional Power Drink*:

8-16 ounces of freshly squeezed organic carrot, apple and parsley juice (or apple and grape juice) mixed with 4-8 ounces of water and 1-2 heaping tablespoons of Superfood..

Take one heaped teaspoon of Formula #2 powder in 8 oz. freshly squeezed juice 5 times a day.  Take it one hour after your morning nutritional drink , ½ hour before lunch, between lunch and dinner, ½ hour before dinner and 1 hour before bed. 

During or after dinner, take your Intestinal Formula #1 as usual.

In addition, drink an additional 8 oz. water after each dose. Do this daily for at least a week.

For tips on juicing, click here.

*If you don’t make freshly squeezed juice, it would be much better to take the formula in water or Biotta juices than in most prepackaged juices (as the enzymes are gone in prepackaged juices).

DRINK LOTS OF WATER! At least 8 glasses a day, and more than this while you are on the cleanse. If you get any cleansing reactions such as a headache, continue drinking water.


This is a liquid formula for infant constipation, that has an improved taste (although some children may still not like it).  It is a liquid formula, based in fig Concentrate with Cascara Sagrada bark, Senna leaf and pod and the oils of Anise, Clove and Tangerine. You can make it yourself with figs and water, and just the main herbs.

This formula is for children (and even adults) of any age.

However, before trying this, we suggest you try GOJI JUICE. This is a delicious new fruit that children love and it has incredible healing qualities. My son, who doesn’t have constipation, still had a definite change in his movements after I gave him this juice (results will vary).



1. Have 2 capsules of good probiotics such as iFLORA TM half an hour before breakfast. –

2. The Super Colon Cleanse is most fundamentally a change in diet. Read You’re not fat, You’re Toxic for comprehensive instructions to know what to do, now and for the rest of your life.

3. Using Colon Cleanse Formulas #1 and #2 (as above) without heavy juicing, raw fruits and vegetables etc. will likely produce results such as 2-3 bowel movements each day, better energy level, improvements with headaches, female problems, male problems, and numerous other benefits, but the colon will still be largely uncleansed.

The herbs will work as a great laxative, but used along with a polluting food program, the bowel pockets, diverticuli, impacted fecal matter, fungal imbalances and poor tonal condition of the colon will not be greatly improved as they should be. Note that many long term users of laxatives end up with bowels that don’t work and have to have constant enemas.

Combine the herbal formulas with the correct diet change and now you will definitely see colon cleansing occurring!

4. DRINK LOTS OF WATER! At least 8 glasses a day, and more than this while you are on the cleanse. If you get any cleansing reactions such as a headache, continue drinking water.

The subject of what water to drink is a big one. Water is one of the 55 chapters in You’re not Fat, Youre Toxic. Tap water is bad because of the flouride and other poisons in the water. Distilled water is bad because it concentrated DPBs. Reverse osmosis water is best.


If you have three easy bowel movements a day, have never had a bowel problem and have no family history of one, then you probably don’t need Formula #1.

If you have bowels that work too often (eg you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohns Disease or Colitis) don’t take Intestinal Formula #1.  GO IMMEDIATELY TO FORMULA #2. 


It is essential for everyone to drink at least eight 8 oz glasses of water every day. Dehydration is a major cause of constipation and bowel problems.  You don’t have to be thirsty to be dehydrated.  Water is needed to CLEAN OUT TOXINS.

If you smoke, have an extra glass of water for each cigarette. If you drink coffee or tea, have an extra glass of water for each cup. Read “Caffeine Blues” by Stephen Cherniske to learn how caffeine is a major cause of intestinal problems.


People who have been involved with natural health for a long time are very familiar with the term “Healing crisis”. These are negative symptoms which may manifest when the body is detoxifying. An example is the headache that many people experience when they give up drinking tea or coffee.

Sometimes things have to get worse before they get better. For example, when you spring clean the house, it looks worse before it looks better. Your body is similar in this respect. When toxins that have been stored in your body a long time start to come out, different symptoms may appear for a while, including headaches, bad skin and tiredness. Be gentle to yourself if this happens. Know that toxins are moving out of your body. Drink extra water. If the same symptoms continue after a few days, you could slow down on the herbs. This will slow down the rate of detoxification. If you are still experiencing negative symptoms after a week, it would be a good idea to see a licensed natural health practitioner. Your local health food store can likely give you information on local people.

PREGNANCY: We recommend that NO herbs be taken at ANY stage of pregnancy or while breast feeding.

“I basically started trying to get fit after I went to see my doctor and he said I needed to lose weight. I weighed in at about 250 lbs! I didn’t have high blood pressure or high chloestrol but that was an alarming weight. So he gave me a sheet of how to eat the right number of calories a day in proportion to what I was doing…which is basically a desk job so no exercise. I tried this and lost 20 lbs but I wasn’t energetic and I did not feel well!. So at 230lbs I read up on your website. I was stuck at 230 lbs for about a month or so. I exercised and watched my diet…NOTHING!.

Then I begun on Vital nutrition plus and the colon cleanse. In three days I felt better. I slept better and my body was alive. I was not sleepy at work at 2 pm anymore. Infact it reaches 5 pm and I am shocked at where the time went!. I work out better at the gym. Everyone tells me I look better. I lost 8lbs to date (three weeks) and although I weigh in at 222 Lbs I feel great!. I look better. My skin is better (no more expensive treatments) beauty for me is from the inside out!. I can do two hours of aerobics and not get as tired. I get tired but I don’t feel drained!!. I am just thrilled. I thank God for having found your website. I know more about nutrition than I ever did. I am now a size 20 from being a size 24. My ultimate goal is to be a size 12 but I know it will happen for sure!! I do not crave sugar and bad foods anymore. I am not hungry. I just drink my vital nutrition plus in the morning with my orange juice. I eat a small salad and soup for lunch. Some more vital at tea time and at dinner time a light dinner and more nutrition plus and I feel just wonderful!.

I used to have a bowel movement every three or so days. The first time I took the colon cleanse I couldn’t believe how much stuff came out. Long dark murky yucky looking stuff!!! Ewwee! These days I go about three times a day sometimes two and I feel really good.

I cannot thank you enough. You have done your good deed for the year by literally saving my life and giving me a bright future. Thanks for you concern and your wonderful website. Keep up the good job!

Kindest regards, C.A., San Jose, California”

“Your Intestinal Cleanse is indeed the best product of its kind on the market.  I’ve tried several different products over the last three years with less than expected results …

It’s kind of perplexing on how the bowel has become the most neglected part of our body.  Our attention and the thrust of the medical profession is to look at the symptoms rather than the cause.  Bernard Jensen’s videos on building health and the causes of disease really opened my mind to the importance of “bowel management”. 

Many thanks to you for your fine product.

Richard Rogalski

“I have had great results from both cleanses!!!! I had a c-section almost 3 years ago and have had a lot of problems with my intestines since. A couple days after starting Cleanse #1 it was like pouring water on a fire. Also, I have Discoid Lupus. There are 2 spots on my lip that have been stubborn to heal, since taking Cleanse #2 the spots are beginning to heal. I have been recommending the Cleanses to everyone! Thank you!

P.S. My husband feels better too”.

Chimene Speer, Indiana

“This product has really, I mean really worked for me. I had the opportunity to take Intestinal Cleanse #1 for about five weeks and Intestinal Cleanse #2 for two weeks, following the instruction provided exclusively. Pardon me, but I expelled parasites and waste from my colon from many years ago and now I really feel better and during that time I lost about fifteen pounds.

Also, I had to have a blood test done to test for the bacteria that cause ulcers (H-Pylori) and although I did have a small ulcer there were no signs present of the bacteria in my blood. My face has cleared up. I do not get pimples in my face anymore or dry itchy patches on my legs either. I am really, really grateful that I have had the opportunity to restore my colon health to optimal performance by using this product. And lastly, I sleep as sound as a baby now. I just feel great. I even have all of my family and friends taking them now and I will continue to take two pills a night. Thanks so much and please have a wonderful day!”

Tracy V. Neyland, Atlanta, Georgia

“The colon cleansing kit is fabulous. Its the absolute best I have ever tried. Now, if only the federal government would issue them to all the Medicaid patients we could really save money in this country. As an ER doctor I’d have to say that 90% of all “belly pain” complaints or about one third of the patients that we see is for constipation. Well, that’s what we get when the food stamps are spent on french fries, potato chips, and cokes.”

J.T.,MD Texarkana, Texas

“I am 48 yrs old and have ALWAYS had a problem… a child I even drank castor oil…I would have a bowel movement once a week. I literally lived on laxatives and enemas….
but a few years ago a friend of a friend was telling me about your product and how it helps her and how she even lost weight…..soooo needless to say I immediately went on line and ordered. I took the pills and I could not believe HOW MUCH I went to the bathroom. It was amazing…In the beginning I did take the pills before each meal and before I went to bed (four to five times a day)….but now I take them twice a day and it regulates me. It is also very natural…before laxatives would awake me in the middle of the night with extreme pains in my stomach. What could I say…I love the product and HIGHLY recommend it!”
