This is one of Dr. John R. Christopher’s most famous and popular formulas. To some this formula is known as an herbal laxative, however, to many herbalists it is much more than this. One of the most important and beneficial factors of this formula is how it stimulates peristaltic action within the lower bowel. Take according to personal need. As there are no two people alike in age, size, or physical construction (and the bowel itself will differ in persons as much as the finger prints), most people will start with two number “0” capsules or 30 drops of the glycerine based extract three times a day, and then regulate the dosage from there. If the stool seems too loose then lower the dose, but if it is difficult to get a bowel movement and the stool is hard and takes a long time, then increase the dose until the movements become soft and well-formed (in very difficult cases, one could take up to 40 of these capsules a day, for these herbs are only food and can do no damage). After the hard material (which is hard fecal matter that may have been stored on the intestinal wall for years) has broken loose and is eliminated, one can gradually decrease but do not taper off the Lower Bowel Formula dosage so much that you lose this advantageous momentum and continuity of elimination. In most cases, improper diet has caused the peristaltic muscles to become sluggish, and in some cases, to quit working. It will take six to nine months with the aid of the Lower Bowel Formula for the average individual to clean out the fecal matter and to rebuild the bowel structure sufficiently to have the peristaltic muscles working entirely on their own. Most people have pounds of old dried fecal matter that is stored in the colon, which is toxifying the system, and keeping the food from being properly assimilated. Because of this putrefied condition, many people consume far more food than the body actually requires. In the process they wear out their bodies trying to get sufficient nutrition and are still always hungry and eating. After the bowel is cleaned, the body is able to normally assimilate the nutrients through the cell structures in the colon instead of being trapped in a maze of waste. Food is more readily assimilated, and a person can sustain himself on about one-third the quantity of his prior food consumption and have four or five times more power, vitality and life. When the body is completely clean, these aids will no longer be necessary—then your food will be your medicine and your medicine will be your food. After following this program properly and the bowels are cleansed, this formula should only be used when needed. All encapsulated products are in a pure 100% vegetable based capsule.
Directions: Take 2 capsules three times a day or as directed by your Health Care Professional. For optimum results take 1 hour before or after meals as to not compete with digestion.
Store in a cool, dry place. Keep out of reach of children.
Do not use this product when abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting are present. Rectal bleeding or failure to have a bowel movement after use of laxative may indicate a serious problem. Discontinue use and consult with your health care professional.
