I have been a practising medical herbalist for over 30 years since qualifying as a Member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists after an in depth four year training. As well as being a consultant herbalist I have run short courses on herbal medicine in colleges, given many hundreds of talks to any organisation who is interested, given radio interviews and written numerous articles some of which you can read on this website.
I was previously a lecturer at Lincoln University on the BSc (Hons) course in Herbal Medicine. I regularly open my practice for ‘herb days’ for anyone who wants to know more about herbs, identify them and how to use them for everyday ailments.
Intestinal Cleansing Formula 2. £16 for 100 x capsules supplied in snap lock bag. These capsules provide a deep cleansing formula which increases bowel movements, helping to draw out toxins from and cleansing the intestinal walls. ICF 2 should be taken once normal bowel movements are achieved –at least three bowel movements a day.
ICF 2 is recommended for fit and healthy individuals with normal intestinal function, as some of the herbs have strong laxative effects. Refrain from taking ICF 2 capsules if you are unwell. ICF 2 should be taken for no longer than a couple of weeks at a time.
This is more powerful than ICF 1 capsules. Try ICF 1 before using ICF 2, the former is milder, so see how you get on. Basically you want it to create two or three bowel movements in a day. If 3 or 4 of the ICF1 capsules are having no effect try a ICF2 capsule.
Start with one only, it’s guaranteed to work. Sometimes though, you may need 2 or 3 capsules to create more than one movement a day.
Cape Aloes, Cayenne Fruits, Senna Leaf, Senna Pods, Cascara Bark, Ginger Root and Garlic.
I ensure that the creams and lotions I use are made from sustainable, vegan, natural ingredients. They are, in my estimation, the best available. All the essential oils used are organic and minimum of preservatives are used; 0.3% rather than the 1% permitted by law. These creams and lotions include no parabens or other harmful ingredients.
