What Is Intestinal Stricture or Bowel Obstruction*
A stricture is an abnormal narrowing of a passage or opening. Intestinal strictures often result from a build up of thickened scar tissue as a result of chronic intestinal inflammation such as in inflammatory bowel disease (particularly Crohn’s disease). Recent reports have associated strictures with a lack of “good’ protective bacteria and an overgrowth of bad bacteria (viruses, parasites, fungi, candida, etc.) in the small intestine.
An intestinal obstruction, or bowel obstruction, is a partial or complete blockage of the intestine or colon, stopping or slowing the movement of the contents of the bowel through the digestive tract. Common causes of bowel obstruction are strictures, hernias, tumors, impacted feces or a malfunctioning or twisted bowel.
Bowel obstruction and/or intestinal stricture symptoms vary depending on the degree of intestinal obstruction, but commonly begin with abdominal pain, bloating, and cramping. If the stricture continues to narrow, symptoms progress to more severe pain and bloating, nausea and vomiting, and constipation.
In severe cases, the strain of trying to force the contents of the bowel through an intestinal blockage can weaken parts the bowel and cause it to rupture, or perforate. A perforated bowel is a serious and dangerous condition that can cause shock and widespread infection. Bowel and colon perforation symptoms include fever, a very rigid abdomen, severe shaking or shivering, and constipation - where you’re not passing any stool, or even gas. A ruptured intestine is a serious bowel problem that requires immediate surgery, so if you find yourself with these symptoms, call an ambulance right away – delayed treatment could result in death.
Natural Treatment For Intestinal Stricture or Bowel Obstruction*
Note: This Symptom Page provides only basic information about natural treatment for intestinal stricture or bowel obstruction. You can purchase the eBook Jini’s Healing Guide: Natural Treatments for Intestinal Strictures in our Shoppe for full, detailed instructions and dosages.
• Apply a hot castor oil pack to the abdomen over the affected area (see instructions below).
• Leave the hot castor oil pack on for 30 minutes, then remove the heat source and gently perform colonic massage (see video at the bottom of this page).
• Go on an elemental liquid diet (such as the IBD Remission Diet) to flush the bowel and to provide bowel rest. If you are not underweight, then you can use just homemade bone broths, diluted juice, protein shakes made with coconut water, and Emergen-C as your liquid diet.
• If you’re on the IBD Remission Diet liquid diet, supplement with MucosaHeal and George’s Aloe Vera juice. If you don’t follow the Diet, then take MucosaHeal as directed on the bottle, and at least 1 tablespoon of flax and/or fish oil per day. Of course, you can also take George’s “Always Active” Aloe Vera juice.
• Take the full spectrum of probiotics (L. acidophilus, B. bifidum, L. bulgaricus) in powder form, 3 times per day on an empty stomach.
• Use Jini’s Probiotic Retention Enema if you have strictures or obstructions in your colon.
• Simultaneously begin craniosacral treatments to release and soften scar tissue.
Here is an excerpt from my eBook, Jini’s Healing Guide: Natural Treatments for Intestinal Strictures:
"Medical treatments for intestinal strictures include dilating or stretching the narrowed segment, or surgically removing it. Unfortunately, both of these procedures result in more scar tissue, and possibly recurrent inflammation (with post-operative intestinal fistulas and abscesses), so neither are an effective long-term solution.
Until now there has only been three likely treatments for a serious stricture or bowel blockage in the small or large bowel:
- Surgery - which then creates more scar tissue and may result in additional strictures in anywhere from six months to ten years time.
- Manual manipulation of affected tissue to increase circulation and movement in the tissue – therapies like the Wurn Technique, myosfacial release, craniosacral therapy.
- Liquid or semi-liquid diet – until the stricture either releases enough on its own for a more normal diet to be resumed, or surgery is performed.
As a result of our experiments with numerous natural substances that soften, dissolve or transform scar tissue, we now have an experimental protocol for softening, and perhaps even completely healing, intestinal stricture or bowel obstruction, called Intestinal StrictureHeal.
Intestinal StrictureHeal is a two-step treatment protocol; there is the oral (or internal) component and then there is the topical treatment. The effects experienced by people who have done just the topical treatment suggest that complete healing of intestinal strictures may be possible by this method alone, but would likely take considerably longer than doing both the oral and topical treatments simultaneously.
In addition, even if you heal your existing stricture(s), but you don't address the underlying infection and inflammation that is causing them in the first place, it won't be long before you have additional, or recurring strictures. So by doing both the oral and the topical protocols, you are addressing both the root cause and the symptom at the same time."
IMPORTANT: Please be fully aware that this is an EXPERIMENTAL protocol. Currently 540 people have downloaded the eBook, but we do not have enough reports back yet to make any definitive claims for this healing protocol. The healing substances used in this protocol are:
- Colloidal silver
- Potassium Iodide
- George's Aloe Vera Juice
- Natren probiotics
- Cold-pressed castor oil
- Wild oregano oil
In the meantime, if you wish to follow the protocol given above to RELIEVE the pain and soften the stricture, here are the instructions for the hot castor oil pack...
