Bowel Health

By: Roy Williams

Maintaining a healthy bowel could prove to not only lengthen your life, it could also improve the quality of your life as well. Many health professionals have told us that, “All disease begins in the gut.” Improving the health of your gut is not as expensive or as complicated as you may think.

First things first. Why do so many Americans suffer from poor digestion? As I answer that question, you will begin to feel a freedom that comes from knowing that your body, when given the proper nutrients can, in most cases, heal without becoming dependent on the medical profession or the pharmaceutical industry.

One of the main reasons for most of the digestive issues in America is that antibiotics are prescribed for almost everything. The American Medical Association and the pharmaceutical industry push antibiotics like a candy store pushes candy. The result can be devastating. The pathogens can become antibiotic resistant, which could result in sickness and death.

The antibiotics also destroy the natural healthy bacteria in our digestive system, which is up to 80% of our immune system. These beneficial bacteria actually identify and destroy the bad or toxic bacteria that gets into the gut. Once the good bacteria are dead, then the bad bacteria can get a foothold and cause infections such as diverticulitis, ulcers, ulcerative colitis and polyps, which can lead to cancer.

Some of the symptoms of too much antibiotic are gas, bloating, belching, and IBS or irritable bowel syndrome. Over time, a weakened immune system can lead to chronic sinus infections, allergies, pneumonia, cancer, and even auto-immune disorders such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus, or Crohn’s.

Of course, the sicker the public, the more dependent on the pharmaceutical industry we become. One great example is the COVID-19 virus. Even though 99.6% of the people who contracted it would survive, they used their powerful media to convince us that without a vaccine it would become a pandemic. Fear is their favorite tool.

Because antibiotics compromise our immune system, we are more susceptible to disease. It is a well-known fact that people who take the most antibiotics also have the most allergies, sinus infections, ulcers, and cancers.

Another cause of digestive disorders can be linked to the amount of sugar Americans consume. On average, Americans consume over 150 pounds of sugar a year compared to only 5 pounds 100 years ago. Consuming too much sugar has been directly linked to many digestive disorders including colitis, ulcers, colon cancers, obesity, and Crohn’s.

A lack of fiber in the American diet is another cause of digestive problems. Without enough fiber, fecal matter can cake up on the lining of the small intestine and colon, which can lead to polyps, colitis, growths, cancers, and infections such as diverticulitis. Early symptoms can be gas, bloating, belching, burping, and low bowel cramping.

Supporting Bowel Health

When it comes to maintaining bowel health or reversing some of the disorders mentioned above, there are some real giants in the nutritional industry that have absolutely no negative side effects and can be used along with any medications. Many people swear by the positive results.

Most Americans with gas, bloating, belching, burping, low bowel cramping, or IBS should consider taking a high-quality probiotic such as PB-8, which has 7 or 8 strains of beneficial bacteria such as Lactobacillis sporogenes, acidophillus, salivarius, bifidum, longum and ramamnosus. A daily dose contains up to 8 billion of the living bacteria. We have so many reports of 90-100% improvement when taken along with a product called Super Enzymes by NOW.

The combination of PB-8 and Super Enzymes can help your gut recover and may even prevent many of the other digestive disorders such as colitis, ulcers, and diverticulitis. Add some fiber to your diet and drink plenty of water and your digestive system will become healthier and your quality of life will improve.

Gall Bladder Issues

For those who have had their gall bladder removed, consider taking one Thurston Compound at the end of every meal. Thurston Compound is designed to do what your gall bladder did. Many tell us that it is wonderful to be able to eat the foods they like again.

When it comes to digestive health, we suggest trying it God’s way using His creations first. The natural way is safe, effective, inexpensive, and has no negative side effects.
