A system used extensively by healthcare providers around the world to improve gastrointestinal (GI) health involves the 4R Program:
The vitamin C flush/lavage is the first step toward healing the gut. This simple, non-invasive method that I learned years ago from Dr. Michael Wald is a novel approach to treating many common GI disorders, particularly H. pylori which infects two-thirds of the population worldwide! In fact, overgrowth of many (gram-negative) bacteria can be dramatically and quickly lowered with this functional procedure. Here’s how it goes:
That’s all there is to it! A very simple, safe, and effective method that you can repeat every month if you like. Dr. Wald believes that this is better than a colon cleanse because the Vitamin C improves the muscular function of the GI tract and is quite healing. A colon cleanse, on the other hand, creates an artificial clean environment that is susceptible to scratches and infection, and can even wipe out some of the mucosal layer.
Please note that our Vitamin C Flush is a balanced blend of mineral ascorbates consisting of 90% Vitamin C, 5% Calcium, 3% Magnesium, and 1% Zinc. This is a buffered form of Vitamin C which is gentle on the stomach and does not cause digestive problems. Do not use ascorbic acid to induce a flush. After you complete the procedure, use Vitamin C Maintenance on a daily basis.
