Intestinal Cleansing

If one had to choose just one herb for intestinal cleansing, it would probably be haritaki, a South Asian fruit that has rejuvenative properties as antiparasitic and mucus removing properties. True intestinal cleansing involves a number of measures so that impacted materials, putrefactive bacteria, and parasites are reduced considerably. Then, one works on improving assimilation, peristalsis, and regeneration of the lining of the intestines. It can take a number of months to reach the desired goal.

 

Bacopa Extract, 2 oz.

Bacopa is an aquatic plant and the primary herb in many Ayurvedic formulas used to improve memory and/or concentration. Bacopa has traditionally been regarded as an aid to learning, retention, and clarity. It also has a reputation as the herb of choice for epileptic disorders and is one of the favored herbs for anxiety. Like many rasayana herbs, it is an antioxidant. It is also antiparasitic and improves gastrointestinal health, including ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome. Bacopa is very safe. In Sri Lanka, it is administered to babies from about eight months of age to purify the blood and to clear parasites and eczema.

Musta Extract, 2 oz.

Nut grass is one of the ingredients in Chyawanprash. It is a highly revered herb and is used in such a wide variety of situations that it is hard to pinpoint its role in rejuvenative therapy. First of all, the roots are considered to be effective against a wide range of abdominal and intestinal complaints, everything from menstrual discomfort to parasites. Secondly, they are anti-inflammatory and have an action on the brain that suppresses appetite, and this function works in tandem with a lipolytic effect that makes it easier to lose weight. Lastly, it has an effect on melanin that aids restoration of hair and skin color.

Tamarind Extract, 2 oz.

This extract was added with the intention of offering a remedy for intoxication, but it was soon learned that the fruit has countless additional benefits. Tamarind is originally from Africa but is grown throughout the Caribbean and Asia as well as on some Pacific Islands. The bulk of imports come from the Antilles.

Tamarind is used mainly to improve digestion but the mechanism whereby it achieves this power seems to imply that tamarind is anti-inflammatory and detoxifying, being used for such serious poisoning as that caused by ingesting datura. It restores sensation in certain kinds of paralysis. It is also used for gingivitis as well as to promote excretion of fluoride.
