Herbal Formulas for Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome & Crohn's Disease

There are many people suffering from Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome or Crohn's Disease who haven’t gotten the help that they need from the medical doctors. Two wonderful herbs for healing this type of problem are Slippery Elm & Licorice Root. The bulk powder is a great way to use these herbs, order twice as much Slippery Elm as Licorice, such as 8 oz. Slippery Elm and 4 oz. Soothing DigestionLicorice root. Combine them and then add it to water, mix with a stick blender and drink down. The taste isn’t bad and drinking this three or more times a day is going to have an amazing affect on the whole system, Colon Comfortfrom the throat all the way through till it comes out the other end. Two different formulas are available with these herbs in it for these ailments: Soothing Digestion or Colon Comfort, the capsules are easier to take on trips or at work or on the go. These formulas are a real life saver and a must have for people dealing with these horrible diseases.

Another thing that needs to happen is a change in diet and sadly enough the majority of the people aren’t willing to make that change. I know because I have lost family members, friends and neighbors to a variety of diet caused diseases, and most of them would not make the effort to change. Dr. Christopher’s Mucusless Diet is the recommended diet, I’m not totally there yet, but I have come a long way over the years. At minimum look at your diet and start changing out the bad foods for their healthy replacement. Over time you will notice how much better you feel eating on this plan. Daniel’s Challenge website has many free videos to teach you how easy it is to eat more raw healthy foods.

Reach for herbs as your first choice for any ailment.


  1. Kathryn, will this help with the overall bowel health? My hubby is in the Army, and ever since his first deployment to Iraq (he's about to go on deployment #3, this one to afghanistan) his bowels and everything connected to them have been severely messed up. He has not had a normal bowel movement in over three years...if this would help, I'd probably be able to get him to take it...
    Thanks! Liz

  2. Those MRE's that they feed our troops are not heathly. I would definately be sending him lots of Vitalerbs to keep his nutrition up. The Lower Bowel Formula helps to correct the bowel problems, but with it being such a big issue he may need to start with the Quick Colon to get things moving. Here is a link to Dr. Christopher's Colon Newsletter:
    If he can get fresh produce he needs to eat as much as he can, I'm sure it is hard over there.
    take care,
