Colonoscopy prep may be a blessing

A reader mentioned getting scheduled for one. Coincidentally, a week ago, I had a natural clearing out of the bowels (source unknown). I suspect that both scenario may produce the same opportunity to do some restructuring.

The first item to be aware of, gravity, bacteria further up the flow will repopulate (for better or worst). For myself, once it became clear that the bowels were being deeply emptied, I loaded up on herbs that impact many of the bad bacteria for a day (several capsules of each, several times a day).

The rationale was to thin out the bacteria that are up-channel.

I then started to repopulate, the first item, an E.Coli probiotic, symbioflor 2 e.coli probiotics, stopped the natural clearing within 2 hrs (not surprising given what made Mutaflor, the alternative E.Coli probiotic, famous back in 1918). I then proceeded to load up on only probiotics that are known to persist (see thus post, Studies on Probiotic Persistence). For myself, I noticed some improvements (but really I do not have much wrong to improve).

This simple approach conceptually should work with colonoscopy prep. If moviprep (prescription)  is being used, we have a pretty good profile on it’s impact from BMJ’s Effects of bowel cleansing on the intestinal microbiota

That’s it — seize the opportunity!

Which brand of Herbs? A reader asked

Long ago we changed over to making our own pills/capsules using Organic Bulk Purchases. It has the following benefits:

  • Much lower cost per capsules
  • It is organic ingredients
  • Often you can also make tea from it (depends if it is powdered or not)
  • No fillers or creative mixology from brands.
