Because the gastrointestinal system can too easily become overrun with positively
charged acids, cleansing and alkalizing becomes necessary. Magnesium Oxide and Sodium Carbonate are negatively charged and very alkaline. Thus, they can help soak up harmful acids found throughout the digestive system.
Over-acidification in the gastrointestinal tract also makes it subject to the burden of
mucous, a binder of acids. This can cause congestion and inflammation. The mucilage effect of Marshmallow and Slippery Elm can soothe and protect tissues inflamed by mucous, especially mucous membranes. Furthermore, mucilage can decrease bowel congestion by replacing mucous as an acid binder.
Another problem often encountered in the intestine is the presence of undigested protein.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) plays a vital role in removing those stingy proteins. In most cases acids should be avoided, but it is the acidic nature of Vitamin C that gives it the ability to soften and loosen protein and other matter that has remained in the bowel. This allows the opportunity to rid the body of undigested food that may have been stagnant in the bowel for any prolonged period of time. The removal of acids, mucous and undigested food is facilitated by Yellow Dock and Ginger. The properties of Yellow Dock give it the effect of a mild laxative. It also stimulates proper digestion and bile production. Among its other benefits, Ginger is an effective gastrointestinal aid; its aromatic compounds improve circulation and normalize proper tone and reflex faculty to the gastrointestinal tract. This balances peristalsis, the wave-like muscle contractions of the intestine that move contents through the digestive tract. The end result is a cleansed and optimized digestive system.

The basic natural concepts of health have been lost. Millions of people die every year and tens of millions suffer needlessly because they fail to follow the natural laws of their beings and are being treated with obsolete and unnatural methods that avoid the true cause of all sickness and dis-ease.
Though the causes of dis-ease are generally ignored by conventional medicine, we do have a history of doctors who agree that the primary causes are always associated with acidic e-motions, toxicity, congestion, and malnutrition. These conditions gradually alter and weaken our internal environment. Once that environment reaches certain acidic polluted levels, dis-ease cycles are initiated.
“Acidosis and Toxicosis are the primary causes of all disease. Rid the body of these poisons and correct the habits of living, and good health will be regained and maintained” and, “just as maggots and flies require the filth of the manure pile in which they grow and propagate, so the human organism must become broken down and filthy through bad habits of living before the tissues and juices of the body will permit the harboring and growth of any noxious bacteria.”
“However, in view of the scientific researches which have been cast aside by medicine it is just as reasonable to assume that the maggots and flies found in a manure pile caused the manure pile as it is to assume that the various kinds of germs found in a thoroughly filthy body, caused the condition of ill health.” P.L. Clark, BS, MD, Ph.Sa
The survival of every animal, bird, fish, plant, and cell, whether it is bacteria, yeast, or protozoa, depends entirely upon its environment.
Dis-ease is never acquired; it is always created. Dis-ease is a natural result obtained from an unnatural lifestyle. Dis-ease is not a question of exposure. It is an internal development that can lead to exposure susceptibility. The entry of an outside entity (bacteria, yeast, parasite) has little effect upon our bodies unless our internal environment has become acidic, polluted, and congested.
An increase in microforms or germs can only be successful when our bodies have degenerated into a severely acidic and polluted environment and our immune system compromised. Indeed, an acidic environment can only cause the breakdown of the human cell and tissue in an acidic host, and germs are the product of the breakdown of that cell and tissue. The breakdown of the human cell and the birth of the germ does not happen in a clean, healthy, and vibrant human body. We must alter our normal healthy internal chemistry before acids can weaken our organs and glands with toxicity, congestion, or poor nutrition and before our body parts can malfunction.
The most important point to understand here is that germs do not cause dis-ease they are the product of cellular transformation. It is acid that breaks down the human cell not bacteria. It is acid that causes dis-ease not bacteria or yeast.
There is only one sickness, one dis-ease and one cause – the over-acidification of the blood and then tissues due to an inverted way of living, eating and thinking.
There is NO OTHER CAUSE FOR DISEASE but ACIDITY.
A Great Secret of Health
The intestinal tract or better said the alkaline buffering system is the hub of our entire body – all organs, glands, even our brains, heart, and cells are totally dependent upon a good functioning alkaline buffering or digestive system. In the Western World, most people have polluted their bowels with filth unimaginable and weakened their digestive function. When the alkaline buffering or digestion is off, even good food can become acidic. As long as this filth remains within, our bodies grow weaker and we become more and more prone towards deficiencies and acidic dis-ease.
A few great doctors have realized this:
“In the 50 years I’ve spent helping people to overcome illness, disability and disease; it has become crystal clear that poor bowel management lies at the root of most people’s health problems.”
“Every tissue is fed by the blood, which is supplied by the bowel. When the bowel is dirty, the blood is dirty, and so on to the organs and tissues…. it is the bowel that invariably has to be cared for before any effective healing can take place.”
“Of the 300 autopsies performed at NationalCollege in Chicago, 285 (patients) had claimed they were not constipated and had normal movements and only 15 had admitted they were constipated. However, autopsies revealed the opposite to be the case. Some of the histories of these 285 persons stated they had had as many as 5 or 6 bowel movements daily, yet autopsies revealed that in some of them the bowel was 12 inches in diameter. The bowel walls were encrusted with material, in one case peanuts which had been lodged there for a very long time.”
“The toxic waste must be removed as quickly as possible to halt the downward spiral of failing health. This is best done by: 1. Removing accumulated fecal material from the bowel…..” Doctor Bernard Jensen, DC, ND, Ph.D.
Dr. Jensen publicly stated that over 90% of dis-ease in America could be traced to unhealthy conditions in the bowel. Privately, he told me that it’s closer to 100%.
“There is but one dis-ease and that is deficient drainage of dietary and metabolic acids.” Dr. Robert O. Young
“I am exceedingly impressed by the sequence of cancer and intestinal stasis.”
“The poisons thus generated (in the bowel) pollute the bloodstream, causing every tissue, gland, and organ of the body to gradually deteriorate and be destroyed.” Sir Arbuthnot Lane MS, FRCS, surgeon for the King of England
“Of the 22,000 operations that I have personally performed, I have never found a single normal colon, and of the 100,000 that were performed under my jurisdiction, not over 6% were normal.”
“All of the diseases of civilization are due to improper functioning of the colon.” Dr. Harvey Kellogg, M.D. of the Kellogg Sanitarium
“There is no natural death. All deaths that come from so-called natural causes are merely the end point of progressive acidic saturation…. However, if they would take care of their body and cleanse their colon and intestines, their problems would be pretty much eliminated and they could eliminate their “cross” by proper diet, proper exercise, and in general, proper living.” Dr. George C. Crile, head of the Crile Clinic in Cleveland
Dr. V.E. Irons, a pioneer in colon cleansing theory wrote: “The cause of most conditions of ill health is autointoxication and that 95% of their troubles start in the colon. We can prove that we can find hardened mucous with its foul smelling curd in the colons of 95% of the entire nation.”
Mucoid plaque is automatically secreted in the presence of acids, and other irritants and at first serves as a protection; but for those who have followed the standard American lifestyle, which is acid producing, it is common for mucoid plaque to form a continuous coating, arranged in layers, over the small intestine, stomach and the colon. When the mucus (mucin) is secreted, it coagulates and can compound with other elements, forming an increasingly firm and toxic substance, which may include: drugs, free radical-producing acidic noxious fecal compounds, heavy metals, parasites and more, depending on what the person eats, drinks, and thinks.
Mucoid plaque often interferes with normal bowel function, nutrient assimilation, and normal elimination. It will also provide a fertile stronghold for a large variety of microorganisms and their noxious acidic compounds. Thus, when the diet is improved and the person strives for maximum health, then mucoid plaque should be removed.
“This layer of mucus, when adhering closely to the mucosal surface, probably functions as a barrier to membrane digestion and most likely also to absorption… where, with increasing age, the mucus layer becomes more pronounced and widespread… it is hypothesized that the mucus barrier interferes with membrane digestion and absorption.” J. Rainer Poley, Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition 1988 May-June; 7 (3): 386-94.
Is it any wonder that the greatest healers in the world have always insisted upon cleansing and rebuilding the alkaline buffering system or the alimentary canal?
To learn more about cleansing the bowel may I suggest reading The pH Miracle or The pH Miracle for Weight Loss by Dr. Robert and Shelley Young.
Dr Young would also suggest taking 1 tablespoon of montmorillonite clay with 1 teaspoon of flax seed powder or psyllium seed powder mixed in 6 to 8 ounces of alkaline water and drink 2 to 3 times a day. For serious bowel cleansing, drink the above combination of clay, psyllium seed powder and alkaline water every two hours with daily colonics for at least 7 to 10 days.
