The following I have posted because I am a firm believer in Hulga Clark. She died young (85) for a health holistic researcher. That is because she was unaware of more recent studies on dietary foods such as milk and meat. Hulga was of German decent and still caught up in the cultural habits in diet of that country… meat and potatoes. However her research into pathogens, electronic detoxification, and her accumulation of Kidney, liver and bowel detox methods are impeccable and on the mark. Download her classic book, Hulda’s Bowel & Kidney Cleanse, for easy reference.

Bacteria are always at the root of bowel problems, such as pain, bloating and gas …..Although most bowel bacteria are beneficial, the ones that are not, like Salmonellas and Shigellas, are extremely detrimental because they have the ability to invade the rest of your body and colonize a trauma site or weakened organ.

  1. colon-cleansingSo the first thing to do is improve sanitation.  Sterilize your hands after bathroom use and before meals.
  2. Secondly use turmeric (2 capsules 3 times a day, this is the common spice), which I find helps against Shigella, as well as E.coli.  Expect orange colored stool.
  3. Third use fennel (1 capsule 3 times a day).
  4. Fourth use digestive enzyme tablets with meals as directed on the bottle.  (But only as long as necessary, because these frequently harbor molds).
  5. Fifth use a single 2 teaspoon dose of Black Walnut Hull Tincture Extra Strength.  Add it to a 1/2 glass of water and sip over a 15 minute period.  Stay seated until any side effect from the alcohol wears off.
  6. Sixth take Cascara Sagrada capsules if constipated (start with one capsule a day, use up to maximum on label).  Remember to drink a cup of hot water upon rising in the morning.  This will begin to regulate your elimination.

It can take all six to get rid of a bad shigella problem in a week.
