The Robert Gray Intestinal Cleanse Programme for a complete colon cleanse
Unhealthy foods and eating habits lead to a depletion of healthy bacteria.
When this takes place, the distress of small, hard, scanty, difficult to pass or infrequent stools may register itself, as well as seemingly unrelated effects caused by toxins from harmful micro-organisms circulating throughout the body.
Few people have ever experienced the state of health possible when a truly abundant intestinal population of healthy bacteria is present.
embodies what its developer insists to be the most significant breakthrough to date for maintaining a healthy population of lactobacteria in one's intestinal tract. Healthy bacteria are difficult to implant.
Therefore, even if the existing ones are few, it is better to have them multiply in large numbers than to use bacterial supplementation , because the existing lactobacteria are already adapted and implanted. Based on this reasoning, Robert Gray developed his formula which stimulates the friendly bacteria to multiply. So you can cleanse and promote healthy bacteria at the same time. Intestinal cleansing - the easy way Through the ages, many cultures have used techniques designed for intestinal cleansing. Such programs involved fasting, enemas, and other procedures. They depleted one's system of health-enhancing bacteria, and were often harsh and uncomfortable in their effect upon the body.
Robert Gray's program is a giant step forward in the long history of intestinal cleansing. It took nine years to develop and is a comprehensive, gentle, effective method which people can follow easily with a minimum effort. PROGRAM INSTRUCTIONS How to Start Start the Robert Gray Intestinal Cleansing Program™ at the Initial Test Level :
Tno example 1 dose in the morning and 1 dose in the evening).
Mix these 2 level teaspoons of Intestinal Bulking Agent III with 8 fluid ounces (0.25 litre) of liquid (fresh, organic apple juice, tomato juice, fresh vegetable juice or purified or
distilled water is best - do not use lemon or citrus juices). Drink directly afterwards another 8 ounces of liquid. Stay at least 3 days on this Initial Test Level.
If you feel good on this Initial Test Level change to level E subsequently and continue from there as shown on the chart.
If you don't feel comfortable with the Initial Test Level, discontinue and wait 3 days. Then restart the programme at Level A and progress through levels B, C, D, and E. Go on as directed in the chart above. Special Formula
as candida. When lactobacteria are increased rapidly, they begin to kill the candida. If the candida infestation is severe, candida may be killed so rapidly that the well known candida "die-off" reactions occur. These may take the form of headaches, nausea, constipation, gas, mucus, discharge, and other symptoms experienced by persons with candida.
If you have severe candida and experience possible die-off ™, then switch to the After 6 or 8 weeks of using the Special Formula Bulking Agent III™, start using a mixture which is 10% to 25% Bulking Agent III™ and the rest Special Formula Bulking Agent™. Then, every few days, increase the proportion a
little each time but not faster than you can easily tolerate until you are using only Intestinal Bulking Agent II and no Special Formula. Important Notes While on Level E, F, G etc. always take the Intestinal Cleansing Formula immediately after taking the Intestinal Bulking Agent III. Always begin at the Initial Test Level. This applies also if your diet has always been excellent before, if you have done other programs or if you have paused the Robert Gray Intestinal Cleansing Program. Dry Skin Brushing Using a dry vegetable bristle brush, work from the limbs toward the colon. The lymphatic system is stimulated and the skin clears and becomes revitalised and fresh. Your progress Control your progress from level to level by noting the frequency and quantity of your bowel movement. If you are on too low a dosage level, these movements will be similar to those which you normally experienced prior to starting the program.
As you progress to higher dosage levels, the frequency and quantity of your bowel movements will increase. However, if you go too high a dosage level prematurely, they will begin
Please note, that given days in the above chart are minimum days (!) which means that as long as you have an increase in frequency of bowel movement or quantity of stool from your normal pattern, you stay on the level. It is not necessary to reach the highest level. Most of the people end the three month cleanse lower than level "I".
During the first weeks of the program, you will know that it is working from one or more of the following signs: • an increase in quantity or frequency of your bowel movement; • a different or stronger odour of your bowel movements that is characteristic of material that has been inside for a long time; • or the presence of irregular shapes in your bowel movements.
Then after you take the™ for a few weeks, you may notice darker colours and possibly some parasites in your bowel movements, which are a further sign of accumulated waste material leaving your body. Ending Stay on the program until your intestines have been fully cleansed.
• You should then notice no more dark colours in your bowel movements• their shape should be smooth and cylindrical• their frequency will decline towards whatever was normal when you started the program. This process takes about three months for the average person.
You should not take the intestinal cleansing products for more than five months in a row. You should then stop for at least 5 months. Afterwards you should continue at intervals of 2 months program and 4 months pause for the next 2 years. Thereafter do a 2 - 4 week program every half year.
When concluding the program, stop the Intestinal Cleansing Formula tablets first, and then gradually phase over from the Intestinal Bulking ™ over the next 3 days. Lactobacteria Food™ Once you complete the intestinal cleansing program, take Lactobacteria Food™ daily to maintain a healthy population of lactobacteria in the intestinal tract. Take 2 level teaspoons of this product 3 times per day with meals for 5 days. Your Diet Intestinal Cleansing Program™ with any type of diet, foods which are non-
mucoid-forming will increase its benefits. These are mainly vegetables, fruits, sprouts and millet. Kelp as a nutritional supplement is recommended.
However, if you would have to make substantial changes in your eating habits to achieve this diet, you should evolve your diet gradually rather than change it all at once.
• For the most part, you may take whatever nutritional supplements you desire along with our products. However, you will counteract the product's activity for increasing the lactobacteria in the intestinal tract by taking vitamin A from fish liver oil, the succinate form of vitamin E, aloe vera, or most antibiotics. But the beta carotene form of vitamin A and the acetate form of vitamin E may be taken without this effect.

Also discontinue the program immediately if you experience more than minor discomfort at any time.
This Intestinal Cleansing Program is not intended as a treatment for any disease or condition. Consult a licensed health care practitioner of your choice if you need guidance of any particular health care problem.
Robert Gray Intestinal Cleanse Programme Frequently Asked Questions
IMPORTANT Do not perform this Intestinal Cleansing Program during pregnancy or if you have any form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, such as Crohn's Disease, Regional Ileitis, or Ulcerative Colitis. Also, discontinue the program immediately if you experience more than minor discomfort at any time. Women sometimes experience a change of menstrual cycle while on this program. In these cases, the pattern of ovulation may also change, invalidating any birth control technique involving knowing or estimating one's fertility period. Do not perform this program if you are taking salicylates or a prescription drug containing digitalis or nitrofurantoin, as the psyllium present in either bulking agent may combine with these drugs. This Intestinal Cleansing Program is not intended as a treatment for any disease or condition. Consult a licensed health care practitioner of your choice if you need guidance on any particular health care problem. Question: I'm having constipation on this program. Why? What should I do? Answer: Any vitamins with succinate, fish liver oil, antibiotics, or aloe vera taken internally will all nullify the effects of our products and may result in constipation. You may either stop taking these products and see if your condition improves or wait until you are off of these products before you begin our cleansing program. Another possibility is that you are having a cleansing reaction. Constipation is one of the most common symptoms of a cleansing reaction. You should go back to the previous level and stay there twice as many days as you did the first time at that level. If you go back to the previous level a 3rd time, stay on it 3 times as many days as you did the first time at that level. If you are having constipation at
the Initial Test, then you need to stop for 3 days, and then start at level A. Question: I have Candida, will this program help me? Answer: Candida is a systemic yeast condition. This program is meant only to help clean your colon. We make no guarantees that this program will help Candida or any other disease. Question: I have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Can I use this program? Answer: Yes. Most people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome can minimize their symptoms while on the cleanse by doing it over the 5 month long period, which is described in our literature. Please note that IBS is sometimes used for Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome, which is a different condition. Persons with Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome must not use our product until that condition has been completely cleared up. Question: Do I need to use the skin brush? What is skin brushing good for? Answer: Yes, it's part of the over-all detoxification process for the colon. Skin Brushing helps clean the lymph, which is part of the detoxification of the colon in our program. Question: What kind of diet should I eat while on this program? Answer: What ever feels safe and comfortable for you. Fasting does not help and is not a requirement to do this cleanse. You do not have to give up meat in order to do this program. Question: I'm pregnant, can I do this program? Answer: NO. Please wait till you have given birth AND finished breast feeding. We do not know the effects of the program on the unborn and the unweaned. Question: I have been taking your products for a while, and my stomach (abdomen) is swelling up. What's happening? Answer: Psyllium husk has a tendency to cause this bloating because it helps soften the mucoid matter with water and causes it to swell up. As you complete the program this swelling will go down. If you are having some discomfort or pain with this swelling you will note that this too will pass as you near completing the program. You may wish to proceed with the program a little slower, giving your body time to expand with the swelling. Sometimes going back to a previous level and staying there twice as long before going to the next level is helpful. Of course if you do not feel safe and comfortable, contact your physician and stop the program if desired. Question: I'm having a lot of gas. What should I do? Answer: Annoying burping or flatulence is usually due to a "die-off reaction"caused by toxins breaking down faster than body can eliminate them. You may choose to stay at your current level, or try going back a level and stay there twice as long
before going to the next level. Doing this may help decrease the gas problem. If you are experiencing painful burping or flatulence, go back to the previous level and stay there twice as long before proceeding in the program. You could be experiencing a severe die-off reaction. If the problem doesn't get better in 48 hours, you may want to stop the program at this time, for the sake of comfort. Painful gas is not a typical cleansing reaction, and you may want to consult your physician to see if you have an allergy. Question: When is the best time to take the products? Answer: One hour before or after eating with a minimum of three hours between doses. Question: I have Candida, (or just started with the SFBA) and I want to know when to start using IBA3? Answer: After being on the program for 6 weeks, you slowly incorporate the IBA-II, gradually reducing the amount of SFBA over a period of time until you are totally on IBA-II. See "Using the Program". Question: On the table for Recommended Dosage, the Minimum Days for Level I is not stated. How many days am I supposed to stay on Level I? Answer: We suggest that you stay on Level I for a minimum of 21 days. If at the end of that time you are still passing ropey mucoid strands, you may stay longer at this level provided that the total amount of time on the program does not exceed 5 months or, if you have completed the program within the previous 36 months, then the total amount of time on the program should not exceed 3 months. Question: It's been more than 36 months since I completed the program. If I had to stay on it for five months, would I develop homeostasis (the body becomes used to the products and they loose their effectiveness)? Answer: Homeostasis is only a problem if you exceed the recommended time of 5 months usage every three years or 3 month usage within 12 months. Question: Can I take the bulking agent (or Lactobacteria Food) with plain water? Answer: Yes. The juice is suggested to help mask the strong flavor of the bulking agent and Lactobacteria Food. Question: Do I have to use fluid in order to take the bulking agent (or LF)? Can I just sprinkle it on a salad? Answer: No. Failure to take sufficient liquid with the products may result in intestinal blockage of constipation. Psyllium is a primary component of our products and absorbs a great deal of fluid. If you do not ingest a sufficient amount of fluid, the moisture from your system will be absorbed by the psyllium causing severe problems. This is one of the prime reasons we do not distribute our products in capsule form. Question: I put the IBA-III in tomato juice and it turned it an ugly color. Is something wrong? Answer: Spriulina, which is in the IBA-II, turns the juice a funny color, but there is nothing wrong with the dosage. Question: I have severe Candida, and could not do your program. Is there anything I could do that will help me do your program? Answer: There isn't anything that we know of that is a sure-fire answer, but sometimes people with Candida have tried to rebuild their lactobacteria. We have a formula that Robert Gray designed to help feed the lactobacteria. If you find that you are unable to take our Lactobacteria Food, then try to make and drink Cabbage Rejuvulac (see "The Colon Health Handbook") for 6 to 12 months. If you notice an improvement in your condition at that time, then you may be able to do our program. Question: I'm on level F. If I go to level G and can't do it, is there any other way to do this than going back to level F for 28 days? Answer: No. But if after 28 days you still can't do level G, then you may want to try to take the same dosage three times a day instead of four. We suggest that you stay at the three-times-a-day level for 14 days. Question: I don't have time to take the program 4 times a day. Can I take double the dosage twice a day? Answer: In most cases the answer is no. You may wish to try that approach, but you may wind up with a cleansing reaction, like constipation, which would require you to go back and repeat a level and stay there twice as long. Since the program was designed at that point to be taken 4 times a day, that's what should be done. Question: Can this program cause fatigue? Answer: No. If you are experiencing fatigue, you should consult your physician. Question: If I stop this program while in the middle of the cleanse, am I in any danger? Answer: No. Whatever has been passed out of the body is the only thing that was loose enough to come out. Any other left over material that may be loose will pass. Anything that has not, or will not, pass when you stop the program will not be "floating around" to cause further damage, or disorder, than you were experiencing before starting this program. Question: If I have to stop the program, can I restart where I left off? Answer: If no more than 3 days have passed, then you may restart at the previous level. For example, if you are at G and must stop, then you go back to level F for the minimum number of days. If you are off of the program more than six days, you must to go back and start at the Initial Test Level.
