Herbal Intestinal Formula #1 stimulates your colon’s natural muscle action and strengthens these muscles. It halts putrefaction and disinfects, soothes and heals, improves digestion, relieves gas and discomfort from cramps, increases the flow of bile which in turn cleans the gallbladder, bile ducts and liver, destroys Candida albicans overgrowth, and promotes a healthy intestinal flora. It also makes it impossible for many intestinal invaders to survive. The herbs in this formulae, like Aloe, Senna and Cascara Sagrada, all contain Emodin, which increases peristaltic waves, the propulsive contractions of the colon muscle. Oregon Grape Root stimulates and flushes the liver, the gallbladder and the production of bile. Garlic is antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal. Habanero and Ginger are both powerful stimulants to the colon. Ginger also relieves gas, while Habanero is a powerful aid in the intestinal healing process.
For the second part of the intestinal cleanse. We will use a drawing and detoxifying formula for the bowel that adheres to and coats the lining of your colon. Then, it softens up old, hardened fecal plaque and sludge and then literally pulls it off the lining of your bowel. It neutralizes and removes thousands of toxins, and even heavy metals like mercury and lead. It vacuums and draws out 40 times its weight in old, toxic, infected fecal material. It relieves the symptoms of constipation, such as gas, cramps, indigestion and nausea that can be caused by a bowel full of filthy waste and sludge. It also soothes the intestinal lining and the colon wall and promotes a well-functioning colon.
Echinacea Plus (ECH+) works in two main ways. First, Echinacea has been scientifically proven to measurably increase the number of immune cells in your body, like macrophages, killer T-cells, granulocytes and important immune chemicals that combat infection and disease. Secondly, Echinacea Plus (ECH+) stimulates these immune cells into heightened activity levels. Echinacea also significantly increases phagocytosis, your white blood cells’ ability to destroy harmful micro-organisms such as bacteria, virus and fungus. These actions will help you combat infection and disease more effectively and also protect you from future invasion and illness. Echinacea’s effectiveness is clearly documented in respected medical textbooks such as the Merck Index and the Physician’s Desk Reference for successfully treating and preventing colds, flu and general infections.
Malia Hilliard fell in love with yoga at 15 when her Father took her to a Yoga Retreat to help a back injury she acquired jumping off an 80 ft waterfall. The practice was Iyengar based, therefore both powerful and therapeutic, and ended up teaching her skills she could apply to every aspect of her life. Although Iyengar remains Malia’s greatest inspiration, she has created her own unique practice influenced by the many seasoned instructors she was able to study with during her 10 years in Los Angeles. Malia’s classes are fluid, powerful, inspiring and fun. Now a Yoga Alliance Certified E-RYT-200 instructor, Malia’s dynamic teaching style has attracted many big names in the industry and landed her sponsorships from companies like Nike, Lululemon and Marika Clothing to name a few. Malia teaches at several studios in Atlanta and hosts Workshops and Retreats globally. A traditionalist at the core, Malia is dedicated to the principles of alignment and the potential of the breath, combining them with vigorous vinyasa flow to create a uniquely profound experience in class. Her light-hearted approach makes yoga philosophy both understandable and attainable. Malia believes in the transformational power of yoga and is continually honored to witness the shifts yoga inspires in her students and in herself.
