How to Cure Stomach, Gallbladder, Pancreas, Intestinal, Gut and Colon Problems Without Drugs!
There is so much digestive trouble in America that this simple treatise should be digestion lesson #1. For starters, even though you may be eating healthy foods, if they are not completely and efficiently digested, they will rot in your digestive tract.
Without Adequate Stomach Acid, You Can’t Digest Even the Healthiest Foods
Specifically, proteins (beef, dairy, fish, chicken, eggs, etc.) that are not digested in your stomach due to low stomach acid will rot via a process called putrefaction. Carbohydrates in the form of fruits, vegetables, etc., that are not digested in your stomach will rot via a process called fermentation—like making wine. And fats that are not digested will rot via a process called rancification—like rancid food that causes millions of cases of food poisoning every year. Any or all three can combine to cause indigestion, heartburn, reflux, gas, bloating, constipation/diarrhea, cramps, pain, colitis, gallbladder disease, and more.
So, to fix a problem gallbladder, you need to first check on, and if necessary, fix your stomach. That is why your stomach is extremely acid—in order to digest your food. Adequate stomach acid and digestive enzymes signal the digested food to leave your stomach and enter your small intestine when your stomach pH (acid level) is sufficiently acidic. Then a signal is sent to your gallbladder—in particular to your sphincter of Oddi—which is the valve that releases bile. This signals the sphincter of Oddi to relax, allowing the flow of bile and fat-digesting enzymes into your small intestine. Here further digestion of fatty foods takes place.
More Than 50% of All People Over 60 Have Low Stomach Acid
The older you are past 50, the more common low stomach acid becomes. And worse, one in three postmenopausal women produce zero stomach acid! Unfortunately, if you suffer from low stomach acid, your stomach pH will not become low enough to send a strong signal to your gallbladder. This is the situation for more than half of all seniors—and the reason for the high incidence of gallbladder problems and gallbladder surgeries. Here’s the domino effect of low stomach acid…
- Low stomach acid is where the indigestion process begins. The putrefying undigested foods lying in your stomach produce acids and gasses which actually cause your heartburn and reflux.
- Low stomach acid will also retard your gallbladder from further digesting food in your intestines.
- And it contributes to poor bile flow, sluggish thick bile, and gallstones/gravel.
- Past this stage, your intestines suffer—they are not designed to handle insufficiently digested food. You will end up with gas, cramps, colitis, constipation/diarrhea, and worse.
- Over time the microscopic digestive “hairs” lining your intestines where food is absorbed into your bloodstream will become coated with stale mucus—directly related to improperly digested food.
- This leads to leaky gut syndrome, where improperly digested food molecules pass through your intestinal wall into your bloodstream and are seen as foreign invaders in your body.
- This makes you more sick and sets many people up for autoimmune diseases.
Obviously if you have heartburn, reflux or gallbladder symptoms, and you opt solely for antacids and/or gallbladder removal, then only the symptoms have been treated. The real, underlying causes of the problems have been totally ignored, will remain, and will make you permanently sick for the rest of your life.
Fortunately, you can easily correct these digestive problems that plague so many Americans. You can help your digestive system and improve your health, even if you have already had your gallbladder removed. Here’s how you can cure your indigestion starting with…
1) Low Stomach Acid
My friend and legendary holistic healer John Trowbridge, MD, loves to say, “first fix the gut.” And equally legendary holistic healer Jonathon Wright, MD, loves to say, “correcting a minor problem in the stomach can help you achieve breakthroughs that modern science has deemed impossible.” Both agree that adequate stomach acid is critical to good health and overcoming sickness, especially indigestion.
So, if you suffer with indigestion, find out if you have adequate stomach acid by getting a bottle of Zypan®
from Standard Process® and take a tablet with your meal. If your digestion stays the same or improves, try two or three tabs per meal. If your burning gets worse, you are one of the rare individuals with excess stomach acid. If your digestion improves, you have low stomach acid
, and you need to supplement with Zypan® (1 to 4 tablets per meal for 6 to 18 months). Zypan® contains pancreatic enzymes, proteolytic (protein digesting) enzymes with pepsin, and betaine hydrochloride (stomach acid). It will effectively lower the pH of your stomach. This will aid your digestion in the stomach, especially of proteins. It will also help your body to relax your sphincter of Oddi so that bile and gallbladder digestive enzymes can flow into your intestine.
And there are times when Zypan® is not strong enough. Remember many people secrete very little to no stomach acid at all! If Zypan® helps a little, but does not get the job done, you should switch to Betaine Hydrochloride. Take as many tablets per meal as are necessary to comfortably digest your meals. Then slowly over time, reduce your dose, always trying to use only the amount necessary. Anytime you feel tingling or burning, it is a sign that you need to reduce your dose.
2) On to Your Gallbladder
When you have insufficient digestive enzymes from your gallbladder, fatty foods will not be digested properly, and you will end up with the urps, burps, nausea, pain, vomiting, constipation/diarrhea, and all the rest of the problems that make up gallbladder trouble. But even if you have a cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal), you are still sick because the underlying cause of the problem has been ignored.
Many times, lowering your stomach acid with Zypan® and/or Betaine Hydrochloride will automatically resolve your gallbladder problems. If not, simply go about using the phytochemical betaine to safely and effectively improve the flow of bile through the bile ducts and into your small intestine. The product you will need to end your urps, burps, nausea, pain, cramps, diarrhea, and more is A‐F Betafood®. It contains the vitamin complexes A and F, combined with betaine from beets. It will help thin your bile, allowing it to become less thick and creamy. This facilitates better bile flow whether you have gallstones or not—even whether you’ve had your gallbladder removed or not.
Standard Process® uses young beet leaves to produce betaine. And betaine is the phytochemical in A‐F Betafood® that works as a gallbladder and liver decongestant. A‐F Betafood® primarily thins and mobilizes bile and flushes the bile route—getting your bile moving again. This is important because bile and other enzymes are needed for good digestion. It is also important because your body eliminates all kinds of toxins and poisons via your bile. Your liver processes toxins and dumps them into the bile for elimination through your bowels. Just imagine your liver desperately trying to rid your body of toxins—but your bile is as slow as honey on a cold day! Avoid all these problems by taking A‐F Betafood® (2 to 4 tablets per meal for 6 months, then 1 tablet per meal for a year).
3) On to Your Intestines
After years of indigestion, stomach and gallbladder/bile problems, your small intestine suffers. And slowly but surely a microscopic coating of protein‐based mucus will clog up your intestinal villi (the microscopic hairs that absorb nutrients from your food into your bloodstream). You end up suffering from all kinds of digestive problems like diverticulosis, diverticulitis, colitis, constipation/diarrhea, and more. And you also suffer from degenerative diseases like arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and more because you are chronically nutritionally deficient thanks to the state of your intestinal linings.
The only way to end this mess is to fix the stomach, fix the gallbladder, then cleanse your intestinal linings. This is done with an amazing product, Okra Pepsin E3, by Standard Process®. This remarkable phytonutrient product combines the sticky plant okra, protein digesting enzymes and pepsin, and E3—a tissue repair factor that is used primarily for people with stomach ulcers or colitis. E3 contains allantoin, which is a powerful tissue‐healing agent.
The okra will stick some of the digestive enzymes and pepsin to the linings of your intestines. Here the protein digesting enzymes will slowly erode (digest) the stale protein mucus that has accumulated over the years. Over time, this relieves the load on your intestinal villi and once again allows your intestines to do what they were designed to do—absorb nutrients from good foods into your bloodstream. This will be the beginning of the end of chronic nutritional deficiencies leading to degenerative disease. Or put another way, the start to a new you.
…and 4) On to Your Colon
Addressing your digestion in the stomach, gallbladder, and intestines will go a long way toward a healthy colon. But years of abuse take their toll. It is now time to rebuild your gut (colon). This can be relatively easy with your new diet, plenty of fiber and roughage, lots of pure water, and a good probiotic. A probiotic contains healthy (friendly) bacteria that will seed your gut. It also contains prebiotic material (food for the newly introduced healthy bacteria in your gut) so they can flourish.
After healthy bacteria take hold, they slowly choke out unhealthy bacteria, bringing your microbiome (flora) back into balance. And we now know how critical this is—thanks to some amazing gut scientists at Stanford University and elsewhere who began the Microbiome Project. They have been studying the flora in the gut, mapping the genes of the gut bacteria, and beginning to shine a light on how your gut microbes affect your health.
It turns out that 90% of all the genes in your body are not human. They belong to the microbes, predominantly in your gut. And they affect your health dramatically. We now know that your flora can influence whether you get, can prevent, or cure type 2 diabetes, obesity, depression, certain autoimmune diseases, asthma, skin problems, and so much more. Therefore, nurturing the microbes that influence your health positively is absolutely essential if you ever plan to get truly well.
So, prepare your colon for a probiotic by killing off harmful bacteria and microbes first—by using the colloidal silver solution Digestive and Urinary Tonic™ (DUT). Drink 2 ounces on an empty stomach 2 times daily for 2 days. You will have also prepared your intestines for a probiotic by using Okra Pepsin E3.
Your intestines and colon will now be prepared and ready to be seeded with and utilize an excellent probiotic that also contains prebiotic material. The product of choice is ProSynbiotic by Standard Process®. Take 2 capsules daily for 6 months. Then 1 capsule daily for a year. ProSynbiotic contains not just healthy bacteria but prebiotic material (food for your healthy bacteria) as well. The food is in the form of inulin from chicory and galactooligosaccharide—a non‐digestible carbohydrate. Your friendly bacteria love both.
So, if you are plagued with indigestion and gallbladder symptoms, don’t just take antacids and/or have your gallbladder removed. Instead use pragmatic medicine to rehabilitate your digestive tract properly. Normalize your stomach acid if necessary with Zypan® and/or Betaine Hydrochloride. Enhance the flow of bile through your ducts and from your liver with A‐F Betafood® (2 to 4 tablets per meal for 6 to 18 months). Clean up and heal your intestinal linings with Okra Pepsin E3 (2 capsules per meal for 6 to 18 months). And nurture and bring your gut’s microbiome into balance with DUT and ProSynbiotic (2 capsules daily for 6 months, then 1 capsules daily for a year or longer).
What to Expect
Below are the real cures you can expect when you use pragmatic medicine to heal your indigestion, stomach, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, intestines, gut and colon.
- More properly digested food leaving your stomach.
- Bile that is not as thick and viscous as honey on a cold day.
- Better functioning digestive sphincters that allow for enzyme flow.
- Removal of years or decades of old, stale mucus from your intestinal villi.
- Healing of the linings of your intestines.
- Seeding your gut and microbiome with friendly bacteria.
- Greatly improved health.
That is pragmatic medicine at its best.
What About Your Pancreas and Diabetes?
Today, diabetes is an epidemic. And indeed, millions suffer from diabetes, and perhaps millions more suffer from poor pancreatic function. In medicine it is called exocrine pancreatic insufficiency or EPI. It is basically when your pancreas does not secrete adequate or sufficient pancreatic enzymes. If this is you, you will suffer with bloating, gas, cramps, and diarrhea. And while lots of these problems are caused by low stomach acid, if Zypan® and the other protocols in this article fail to help you resolve your problems, you will need to substitute Diaplex® for Zypan®.
Diaplex® is pancreatic enzymes and pancreas extract. It is designed to provide pancreatic enzyme support and to enhance healing of your pancreas. You will need to take Diaplex® (1 to 3 tablets per meal for 10 to 15 days) to determine whether you are suffering from EPI. And if you are, Diaplex® will help you, and you will begin to get better in two weeks or less.
Likewise, Diaplex® plays a major role in a diabetes protocol. With type 2 diabetes you will need to eat a Mediterranean diet, practice strength building exercise (like weightlifting), and take Diaplex® (2 to 4 tablets per meal). Another part of the diabetes protocol is Cataplex® GTF (2 tablets per meal). GTF stands for glucose tolerance factor because it helps your body utilize insulin properly to keep your blood sugar normal. A third part of the diabetes protocol is Min‐Tran® (2 tablets per meal)—which provides organic minerals. The fourth part of the diabetes protocol is omega‐3 fatty acids. We use Blue Ice™ Fermented Cod Liver Oil (1 capsule per meal). And the final part is curcumin from turmeric root. We use 2 to 3 tablets of Turmeric Forte taken daily with meals that contain some fat. In scientific studies 100% of subjects with pre‐diabetes did not progress to type 2 diabetes. And Turmeric Forte will also help you control your glucose if you already have type 2 diabetes.
You can judge your success easily by using your glucose monitor daily for 30 days after you start your new diet, exercise program, and nutritional protocol. You will be amazed. And for lots more information on diet, exercising, and the diabetes protocol, turn to the bonus book you received with your subscription to Health Alert. Or just call my office at 1‐800‐231‐8063 (M‐F, 7‐5 PST) and ask one of my Subscriber Support Specialists for my latest Diabetes Report, this is free for paid subscribers.
What About Bacteria in Your Gut?
Medicine continues to struggle with this problem—whether it is an infection, hospital infection, or just plain food poisoning. They are often unable to decide whether to use antibiotics (which cause more gut problems), other drugs, or anything else that might help.
Fortunately, we already have the protocol that is safe, effective, easy to use, and inexpensive. Thanks to the most amazing colloidal silver compound called Digestive and Urinary Tonic (DUT), food poisoning and gut infections are a thing of the past. This amazing tonic will kill harmful microbes, including bacteria, viruses, and even fungus.
You simply drink 2 ounces on an empty stomach 2 times daily for 2 to 4 days, followed by ProSynbiotic (see On to Your Colon earlier in this article) to re‐seed your gut. I simply cannot say enough about DUT—it is simply amazing, with a measured kill ratio over harmful microbes in your gut, and even in your urinary tract.
So treat your gut, from your stomach to your colon pragmatically. Do not resort to drugs or surgery as your first treatment. Use the products that really get the job done. There are no substitutes. You will be very happy when you resolve the underlying cause of your digestive problems, rather than just the symptoms.
Treatment of the symptoms of disease will almost always fail to help you truly resolve your health problems. For that reason, none of the treatments/protocols in this article are intended to treat any disease or condition. Rather, they are designed to treat you. You will be shown how to identify, address, treat, and/or eliminate the underlying causes of your health problems—which are diagnosed by your physician or medical professional. This gives you the best chance to finally get well and even cure yourself.
