If you occasionally experience any of the following:
... then, your digestive system may not be functioning as well as it
- Belching, flatulence, and bloating
- Rumbling or gurgling sounds in the abdomen
- Constipation and/or diarrhea
- Constant hunger
- Fatigue after eating
- Food intolerance or food allergies
The function of the digestive system is to break food down and turn it into
the right chemicals for the body to use. Although the process of food
breakdown begins the moment food enters your mouth, the stomach is where
the body's breakdown of food really gets serious. This is where an adequate
secretion of acids and enzymes is very important. Without them, food
particles can not be broken down sufficiently. They begin to ferment and
putrefy, causing many of the above symptoms.
But there is more to digestion than just acids and enzymes. For digestion
to proceed in a smooth and timely manner there needs to not only be plenty
of enzymes to dissolve food, but adequate fiber to stimulate good
peristalsis in the intestines, and good intestinal flora to absorb the
nutrients into the blood.
A deficiency in any one of these important components:
1. digestive enzymes
2. intestinal flora
...can cause a great deal of distress.
As we age, our stomach produces less hydrochloric acid and fewer enzymes.
Besides that, intestinal flora can easily be wiped out by a course of
antibiotics, a difficult or prolonged illness, processed foods, even
chlorinated water. How can we replenish our intestinal flora and digestive
With Megazyme and Royaldophilus.
Megazyme is an advanced multi-enzyme complex that promotes
complete digestion and assists in the assimilation of nutrients with a
high-powered array of digestive enzymes. They help us utilize the
vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in our food.
As we grow older, our pancreas produces fewer digestive enzymes, and we
become less able to unlock the nutrient content, vitamins, and minerals
from our food. Enzymes help digest toxic waste and gases from everyday
metabolism. Enzymes are vital for breaking down proteins and processed
foods, which might otherwise ferment and putrefy in the digestive system.
And undigested foods tax our bodies, sap our energy, and encourage the
overgrowth of yeast, fungi, and parasites.
Megazyme contains: betaine, pancrelipase, pancreatin,
bromelain, trypsin, thymus, carrot powder, alfalfa sprouts, alfalfa,
papain, cumin, magnesium stearate, and the essential oils of tarragon,
anise, fennel, peppermint, and clove, di-calcium phosphate; and stearic
Royaldophilus is an outstanding source of Lactobacillus
acidophilus and bifidus cultures critical for maintaining
healthy intestinal flora. Our whole-milk acidophilus not only provides
unsurpassed culture but also includes plantain to promote the culturing and
bioavailability of the intestinal flora. These friendly bacteria are our
first-line defense against disease and fungus overgrowth.
The Importance of Fiber
And let's not forget the role of fiber. Fiber is of tremendous importance
to a sluggish digestive system.
The job of fiber in the digestive tract is to create better colon hygiene.
Fiber helps keep plaque from building up along the intestinal walls and
facilitates moving debris through the system - maintaining regularity.
Research shows that a diet high in fiber protects against heart disease and
prevents fermentation in the digestive tract. Fermentation contributes to
bloating and the growth of candida - a detrimental type of yeast overgrowth
that becomes systemic.
Today's doctors are trained to look for serious diseases in the intestinal
tract such as infectious colitis, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel
syndrome, cancer, etc. Few doctors consider the problems of candida and
parasites. These two problems go undetected and undiagnosed every day.
Yet, the prevention of these two problems could prevent further
complications down the road.
"The average person over 40 has anywhere between 5 and 25 pounds of
build-up in their colon. Parasites of all sizes thrive in this residue of
fecal matter, slowly but surely toxifying the whole body."
--Bernard Jensen, Ph.D., author and nutritionist
As we grow older, we risk suffering greater and greater buildup of chemical
contamination in our bodies, as well. As toxins accumulate, we are more
likely to suffer lack of energy, poor health, and degenerative changes. We
often feel sluggish, tired, and prone to illness.
Nearly everyone suffers from an ever-mounting buildup of toxins, chemicals,
bacteria, and parasites. According to Kenneth Bock, M.D. all humans are
"walking toxic dumps." He continues,
"The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that from 1980 to 1990,
more than 20 million pounds of herbicides were applied to residential lawns
and gardens. How many of us have toxins accumulating in our bodies? The
scary truth is, we all do."
When we consider the industrial wastes, herbicides, pesticides, food
additives, and heavy metals we unknowingly absorb from our food, cosmetics,
air, and water, and even mercury fillings, this statement is easy to
And because of our place at the top of the food chain, we are subjected to
concentrated doses of potentially harmful chemicals when we consume meat
and dairy products. Meats and dairy products move slowly through the
intestinal tract and can easily become trapped in its many folds. This
becomes undigested debris that ferments, polluting your body with dangerous
mycotoxins (some mycotoxins have been linked to serious diseases).
Colon Health = Colon Cleanses
In order to keep up with amount of pollutants we ingest and the food we
don't digest, the cleansing of the intestinal tract needs to be continuous.
Especially for those over 40, and especially if we eat animal proteins.
Prevention is not that difficult. Colon health starts with regular colon

What About Parasites?
Parasites usually go unnoticed until they begin to cause fatigue, poor
health, and digestive difficulties. Leading parasite specialist, Dr. Ross
Anderson, states, "I believe the single most misdiagnosed health challenge
is parasites. I realize this is a brave statement, but it is based on my
20 years of experience with more than 20,000 patients."
ParaFree is an advanced blend of some of the strongest
essential oils studied for their antiparasitic properties. It creates a
climate that is hostile to parasites.
ParaFree contains the essential oils of black cumin, thyme, clove, anise,
nutmeg, fennel, vetiver, Idaho tansy, melaleuca alternifolia, and laurus
nobilis in a base of sesame seed and olive oil.
Di-Tone is an excellent companion to ParaFree,
ComforTone and JuvaTone. This blend of therapeutic-grade
essential oils is noted for its soothing effects on digestion. As a
dietary supplement, Di-Tone is an invaluable digestive aid.

While you are cleansing your body of parasites, debris and toxins, you'll
especially need to replenish your electrolytes. Fast, urgent bowel
movements often deplete the body's reserve of minerals and electrolytes
instantly. Replenish them quickly with Mineral Essence.
This balanced organic, ionic mineral complex contains more than 60
different minerals. Without minerals, vitamins cannot be properly
assimilated or absorbed, nor can the immune system and metabolism function
properly. Mineral Essence also contains a natural, highly
bioavailable electrolyte balance, which absorbs quickly.
Cleanse and Renew the Liver
The liver performs over 5,000 complex chemical functions. It purifies the
blood and is key in converting carbohydrates to energy. It's one of the
most important organs in the body. An overtaxed liver can affect our
energy, digestion, and skin. Fats and bile within the liver can easily
become oversaturated with oil-soluble toxins, synthetic chemicals, and
heavy metals. As toxins build, the liver becomes taxed and stressed,
resulting in aggravating skin conditions, rashes, fatigue, headaches,
muscle aches, digestive disturbances, pallor, dizziness, irritability, mood
swings, and mental confusion.
JuvaTone is a powerful herbal complex designed to support
the liver. It contains choline, inositol, and the powerful antioxidant
dl-methionine -- which have been researched for their ability to convert
oil-soluble toxins into water-soluble compounds that may be excreted.
Methionine helps recycle glutathione, one of the body's most important
natural antioxidants that is crucial to normal liver function. JuvaTone
also contains Oregon grape root, recognized by Native Americans and
pioneers for its ability to cleanse and support liver tissue.
The liver performs over 5,000 complex chemical functions. It purifies the
