Everything You Need to Know About Dr. Christopher's Lower Bowel Formula
Constipated? Gas? Heartburn? If you have had any of these symptoms, you may want to try Dr. Christopher’s Lower Bowel Formula.
The Lower Bowel Formula is one of the formulas that has made Dr. Christopher famous in the herbal world. It is a great formula that helps with bowel and gut problems, including constipation, diarrhea, nausea, stomachache, and more. Lower bowel is one of our most popular formulas we sell.
Is it worth all the hype? Let’s dive in and see.
Before we get into what the lower bowel formula is and how it can help you, let’s take a moment to talk about colon health.
In a forward to the book, "Dr. Christopher’s Guide to Colon Health," Nathan Jaynes states that “Nine out of ten diseases are caused by constipation and can be prevented and treated by a proper diet and herbal formulas. In an ideal world, everyone would have three bowel movements a day, wholesome food would be the norm rather than the exception, disease would be uncommon, and herbalists would have very little to talk about.”
As it is, with our modern lifestyle and diet, things are not always ideal, and unfortunately, gut issues or problems are common.
Bowel disorders can cause a lot of pain, negatively affect how your body digests food, and be a sign of other underlying and potentially hazardous health conditions.
Some common bowel disorders include:
- IBS (Irritated Bowel Syndrome)
- Intestinal Obstruction
- Crohn's Disease
- Celiac Disease
And more. Other things like ulcers, colon or intestinal cancer, and infections can also cause bowel issues.
While the exact cause of bowel issues depends on each person, bowel issues and disorders can be very painful, restrict you from eating certain foods, and make you very sick.
Common symptoms of any of these disorders include vomiting, nausea, constipation, abdominal pain, diarrhea, bloating, heartburn, and changes in the consistency of your stools.
Bowel disorders are usually more serious than just an every now and then stomach ache, or bout of constipation. However both a bowel disorder and a normal stomach ache are uncomfortable and both can be helped.
What to do for lower bowel issues
Some natural and helpful things you can do for bowel issues include:
Drink plenty of water everyday
Increase your intake of fiber
Avoid trigger foods
Stick to an eating schedule
Chew your food thoroughly
Take prebiotics and probiotics to help your gut
Fiber feeds your gut bacteria and helps regulate digestion and have regular bowel movements . It is generally recommended to get 25-35 grams of fiber in per day, but most Americans only get 15 grams or less.
Foods high in fiber include chia seeds, apples, broccoli, berries, dried fruit, beans, and oatmeal.
Herbs that contain fiber and inulin include chicory root, burdock root, dandelion root, slippery elm, psyllium seed & husk and ginger. These are also a great addition to add into your diet.
Making sure to get enough fiber every day is a great way to kickstart the digestion process and help your body eliminate waste smoothly.
Sometimes your bowel issues can come because of a food, or food group, such as sugar, dairy or wheat. These food groups can be very inflammatory and may the culprit behind bowel issues.
Doing an elimination diet to find out if certain foods cause symptoms, or getting allergy tested are good options to see if your gut issues are caused by food.
If anything serious happens, like blood in your stools, or sudden and unexpected weight loss talk to your doctor immediately. They can run some tests to see if there are any other health problems you should be aware of.
Another option for bowel health is doing an herbal regiment with a formula like Dr. Christopher’s Lower Bowel Formula.
What is the Lower Bowel Formula?
“Lower Bowel” is a signature formula created by Dr. Christopher as a natural laxative in order to encourage the elimination of waste and assist intestine activity.
It comes in either a 1 pound bulk powder form, in capsules, or in extracts. It used to be called “Fen L.B,” and sometimes “Naturalax 2,” so you might have heard it by those names. All the names are referring to the same amazing formula.
There is a reason why this formula is one of Dr. Christopher’s most popular- it works well when it comes to getting rid of constipation and helping you have regular bowel movements, so that you can feel good and be healthy.
Ingredients in the Lower Bowel Formula
Lower Bowel Formula is made with a blend of:
Cascara Sagrada Bark
Barberry Root Bark
Cayenne Pepper 40 MHU
Organic Ginger Root
Red Raspberry Leaf
Turkey Rhubarb Root
Organic Fennel Seed
**Unlike other laxatives, natural or otherwise, the herbs in the Lower Bowel formula work to tone the colon rather than just stimulate, this means it is intended to be a regiment rather than something you feel you need long term**
These ingredients have laxative properties, cleanse waste from the body, and are tonics for the peristaltic muscles. They help increase secretions from the stomach, liver, and intestines, alleviates and relieves cramps, helps the digestion process go smoothly, and more.
Directions for Use
The dosages can be changed depending on your health goals.
For the capsules- take 2 capsules three times daily. For extracts, take 30 drops three times daily.
Many people use this product in accordance with Dr. Christopher’s “Three day cleanse and Mucusless diet.”
There is also a kid friendly version of Lower Bowel formula in our Kid-E line, called Kid E Reg. That works the same as the lower bowel formula, but is a better flavor and is designed for kids.
