You will not be in the bathroom all the time
While you will be going to the bathroom more often, you will not experience it as an overwhelming, uncontrollable or urgent need. The Digestive Stimulator™ has been formulated to act very gently, but surely, with your body. You will find it quick, easy, and comfortable to have three or more bowel movements a day.*
You may need to take more Digestive Stimulator™ capsules when
When you are colon cleansing and if you are doing the BEST Option, you are not taking in solid foods and this makes the wave-like, propulsive actions of the intestines slow down. With more Digestive Stimulator™ capsules, you are able to keep the Toxin Absorber™ moving on through and assure three or more bowel movements a day.
What to do if your bowels just won't move
Often this could be associated with a difficulty of letting go at an emotional level. Stress, pressure, and sudden challenges can also easily affect bowel movements. If one is paying "too much" attention to their bowel movements this can cause "emotional" constipation. Often times, simply letting go at the emotional level will release the bowels. Once a person with this challenge has released for the first time, they should not experience any more difficulties throughout the program. Continue reading the next two questions for more options.
You may need more than 4 Digestive Stimulator™ capsules to have daily bowel movements
It is perfectly OK, because you have discovered what your body needs. The average dose is 1–3 capsules for people who naturally have frequent bowel movements on their own. Those with severe constipation, that is, they usually only go once a week, will find they may need upwards of 10 or more capsules a night. The number that works for you, no matter how many or how few, is the correct number.
What you can do if that doesn’t work
You may change the way you take Digestive Stimulator™. Continue to take Toxin Absorber™ at three-hour intervals. However, split up your dosages of Digestive Stimulator™ three times in the course of the day, one hour before the Toxin Absorber™ (ex 9am, 3pm, 6pm as seen in the Dosage Calendar).
If you use up your Digestive Stimulator™, you can get more
If you use up either of the products in the Colon Cleansing Kit™ you can purchase them individually from your health care professional or directly from Blessed Herbs.
What to do if you still can't go
It is a must to move your bowels! If you have gone a whole day without a bowel movement, take an enema. During a cleanse it is essential to have consistent bowel movements. An enema is a simple and healthy way to assure a bowel movement. Use only distilled water or herb tea to take your enema. Consult your healthcare practitioner or call Blessed Herbs immediately if bowel problems arise during your cleanse.
What you can do if you get really bloated/constipated doing the Colon Cleansing Kit™
Some people experience quite a bit of bloating and/or constipation for the first couple of days of the cleanse, especially until they move out some of the stuff that wants to come out. This is normal. However, to keep from getting uncomfortable while this is happening, it is very important to keep your bowels moving.
There are three ways to deal with bloat and/or constipation. Drinking enough water is of prime importance. Be sure you are drinking at least 6–8 glasses of pure water every day besides the water you drink when taking Toxin Absorber™. Taking your Digestive Stimulator™ capsules throughout the day instead of once in the evening, assures no slowing down of your daily bowel movements (see “What you can do if that doesn’t work” on the Bowels/Constipation page for more detailed information). Enemas or colemas are the fastest way to relieve the discomfort. All three of these actions taken together is the very best way to deal with bloat and constipation while doing liquids–only fasting.
Should you need an enema you may choose from one of three types of liquid: water (distilled, filtered or purified), brewed coffee or peppermint tea made with distilled, filtered or purified water. Choose only from these liquids and make no substitutions. When you add your liquid to the enema bag, it should be body temperature; not cooler or hotter. Check the temperature by placing some on the inside surface of your wrist, if you feel a comfortable warmth then it is the right temperature.
Filtered, purified or distilled water: you may choose one of these three kinds of water depending on what is available to you. Heat one quart and then let cool to body temperature before pouring into the enema bag.
OR Fresh brewed coffee: use three tablespoons of ground, organically grown, coffee beans for every one quart or purified water (an enema bag usually holds one quart). Bring to a boil, turn down the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, then strain and cool to body temperature and pour into your enema bag. You may add more purified water to your enema bag to bring it up to full.
OR Peppermint tea: use 8 teabags of organically grown peppermint leaves for every one quart of purified water (an enema bag usually holds one quart). Place the teabags in a pot (that holds slightly more than one quart) and pour boiling water over them, cover the pot and let steep for 15 minutes, then strain and cool to body temperature and pour into your enema bag. You may add more purified water to your enema bag to bring it up to full.
Take as many enemas in a row that you need to completely empty your bowel or until the discomfort is released. If you are familiar with using a colema board and its accompanying five gallon container, this is an even more successful way to go. There is no need to suffer with bloat and/or constipation, if that happens; it is completely correctable using enemas, colemas, or colonics. You will have relief within 20–30 minutes. Please do not suffer with this when you can take an enema and feel good again, it is that simple.
