Manufacturers add preservatives to food products in order to reduce spoilage by killing bacteria and fungus in the container. But that can do the same in the gut, killing good bacteria that help the body absorb nutrients and digest food. Diets high in sugar and carbohydrates also harm the gut, feeding intestinal fungus such as Candida and allowing it to take over.
According to Steven Frank, founder of Nature’s Rite, an herbal remedies company, a well-balanced, three-pronged approach can rehabilitate the digestive system. The first step is to kill off the bad bacteria and irritating fungus with a broad-spectrum antimicrobial that is biocompatible, yet effective. Frank suggests an enhanced aqueous colloid of silver that is optimized to help clear the microbes out of the digestive system. It’s best taken on an empty stomach, dosing two ounces every two hours for two to three days; this prepares the system for enhanced effectiveness of the following treatment.
The second step is taking a good probiotic daily for at least one month. Finally, take a combination of herbs to increase mucus to protect the digestive system and reduce histamine sensitivity, allowing the intestines to rebuild a healthy lining. Steven Frank, suggests a combination of plantain, licorice, aloe vera, peppermint, marshmallow root and slippery elm bark.
When working to heal the body, basic building blocks are required, so it’s critical that those using this approach take 2,000 milligrams of vitamin C, 10,000 international units of vitamin D and a good B-complex daily.
