“Six weeks ago my eliminative and digestive
system was in as state of total collapse due to
years of being on a high fiber mostly vegetarian
diet. Fiber Menace and CRP helped me begin my
recovery. I want to thank you for your innovative
and courageous research, which I have found to be as
advertised. I have found that the information in
Fiber Menace is accurate and effective, from my own
experience. The so called "high fiber treatment" for
constipation and bowel health nearly killed me. Your
clear and rational explanation of why fiber is not
the key to bowel health, enabled me to break free
from the fiber dogma and begin my recovery. I am

CRP enables recovery from IBS by eliminating its
primary causes: disbacteriosis, hard or large stools, diarrhea,
bloating, flatulence, and dependence on laxatives and
medication. In combination with a low-density diet, full
recovery is attainable in 3 to 6 months [background].
constipation and/or dependence on laxatives
Hard or large stools
and dependence on laxatives are the primary causes of idiopathic
constipation (with no underlying physical pathologies). Abnormal
stools, specific to constipation, result from disbacteriosis,
excess dietary fiber, irregular bowel emptying, related to work
schedule or travel, low-grade stress, bad toilet habits, etc.
CRP restores proper
stool morphology, and helps you to maintain regular and
effortless bowel movements. Full recovery is attainable in one
to three months, assuming you don't skip/suppress/withhold
stools, and have no organic damage, such as a constricted anal
canal (from enlarged internal hemorrhoids) or the absence of the
urge sensation (from anorectal nerve damage).
Since moving the
bowels is part conscious, part an unconscious act, you may still
need to readjust and retrain your “conscious” control over this
process. Nonetheless, this retraining should begin with CPR,
because mental effort, supreme will, and supernatural control
over one's body isn't enough to turn hard stools into soft ones
or reawaken comatose bacteria even if you are David Copperfield
or the Dalai Lama [background].
In the case of
diarrhea, idiopathic means there are no inflammatory conditions
in the bowel or upper digestive tract. Because bacteria are
essential to form and bind stools, acute disbacteriosis is a
primary cause of idiopathic diarrhea. This condition is common
after antibiotic treatment, and may quickly turn into
inflammatory bowel disease.
The advice to use dietary fiber to form
stools only intensifies diarrhea because soluble fiber blocks
the absorption of fluids all along the GI tract. Proper diet is
essential to arrest diarrhea, prevent dehydration, restore colon
ecology, and form normal stools. Full recovery is attainable in
one month or less if this condition is treated earlier (i.e.
before the inflammation).
Bloating and flatulence
accumulation of gases (flatulence) and abdominal distention
(bloating) are commonly caused by (a) excess consumption of
fiber and (b) small and large intestine inflammation. In both
cases a low-density, low-allergenicity diet is a first step towards
recovery or relief.
In the case of bowel inflammation, CRP is
essential. Assuming this is a functional condition, full
recovery is attainable within a few weeks — it takes that long
to displace all traces of fermentable bio-mass from the large
intestine, and to reduce bacterial population by, essentially,
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
pressure of a distended small and large bowel on a
hypersensitive uterus during the menstrual period is the primary cause of
pain and discomfort. Hence, the approach to functional PMS (no
other damage), should always start from eliminating the causes
of intestinal distention — primarily, large stools, bloating,
and mild inflammation — conditions typical for IBS.
Assuming both issues are functional, full
recovery is attainable in several weeks prior to a period.
Obviously, proper maintenance is essential to prevent relapse
during consecutive periods.
A pronounced emotional reaction (i.e.
irritability) to periods in women who do not experience PMS is
rare, and is more likely a response to extended pain and
discomfort than to hormonal swings or uterus metamorphosis,
specific to menstruation. While I was growing up in the
pre-antibiotic and pre-fiber era, PMS was virtually unheard off.
Today it‘s omnipresent.
Resuming bowel movements after surgery or trauma
Surgeries are commonly preceded by a thorough
colon lavage (complete bowel cleansing with laxatives and/or
enema) to prevent involuntary bowel emptying while under general
anesthesia. Anesthetic side effects, post-operative pain relief,
extended bed rest, liquid diet, and, in some cases, total
parenteral nutrition (via intravenous drip) “turn off” GI tract
peristalsis for extended periods of time.
The combination of all these factors — the
disruption of colon ecology with lavage, prolonged absence of
peristalsis from drugs, and a liquid diet commonly result in
severe constipation, complicate convalescence, and may cause
significant harm to colorectal organs from ensuing stool
impaction and straining.
Colorectal Recovery Program is exceptionally
effective for post-operative, post-traumatic recovery because
it‘s gentle, efficient, and free of additional side effects. DO
NOT use IntesiPacks (i.e. tablets and capsules which require
gastric digestion) until a normal mixed diet is fully resumed.

Many medicines list
constipation among their numerous side-effects. Constipation is
particularly bothersome when using systemic drugs for pain
relief, depression, hypertension, heart failure, Parkinson's,
diarrhea, asthma, glaucoma, and so on. These drugs contribute to
impacting the contraction of smooth muscles, which in turn inhibits intestinal peristalsis
and diminishes the defecation urge. Indications and
outcome are similar to above.
surgery, regular and virtual colonoscopies require a thorough
colon lavage with synthetic laxatives and, in the case of a regular
colonoscopy, an anesthetic. For this reason many patients
experience difficulties to restart regular bowel movements after
a colonoscopy, and experience other significant side effects
related to disrupted colon ecology. CRP facilitates full
recovery, restores intestinal flora, normalizes stools, and
prevents side effects and other complications.

colorectal polyps, colon
If you had polyps discovered and removed
during a colonoscopy, or if you are in the high-risk group for
colon cancer, the CRP may help prevent the growth of new polyps
and mitigate those risks. Besides, it's absolutely critical for
you to restore normal colon ecology and function after a
penicillin-style antibiotics and synthetic antibacterial drugs

they destroy not just the intended cause of the infection, but
also all other bacteria that happens to be around, including the
unlucky bugs in your gut. And that's how most cases of IBS and
Chemotherapy and, to a
lesser extent, radiotherapy wipe out intestinal bacteria (single
cell organisms) with the same vigor that they decimate cancer
cells. Both procedures wreak havoc with the rest of the
digestive system, and may cause a loss of appetite, nausea,
vomiting, and profuse diarrhea.
The combination of all
these factors commonly result in severe constipation, further
diminishing the quality of life and the effectiveness of cancer
treatment. To make matters worse, oncologists and patients
follow truly murderous advice to: “eat high fiber foods, and
try to drink at least 3000 ml of fluid each day.” [American
Why murderous? Well,
because (a) Fiber commonly causes colon obstruction — on the one
hand, patients are too weak to move their bowels, on the other —
there are no bacteria left to reduce the fiber's volume through
fermentation. (b) Fiber and water in high volume may cause or
intensify nausea and vomiting. (c) Soluble fiber is likely to
intensify diarrhea. (d) Large volumes of water will contribute
to peripheral edema, lymphedema, kidney and bladder damage, and
congestive heart failure, all common side effects of

supplements speed up the healing of the mucosal membrane
(stomach and intestinal lining), strengthen the immune system,
reduce the chance of developing other side-effects, improve
the quality of life, and speed-up overall recovery from the side
effects of common cancer treatments.
Heavy metal poisoning, mercury amalgams
All these factors damage intestinal microflora.
Indications and outcome are similar to post-antibiotic recovery.
Yeast infection (candidiasis, thrush)
Intestinal bacteria are omnipresent Candida fungus at safe
levels (prevent overgrowth). When bacteria are damaged by any of
the above causes, the resulting fungal infection (mycosis) is
commonly referred to as “yeast infection.”
Along with low-carbs, a low-fiber diet (to
exclude carbohydrates which feed and sustain yeast infection),
CRP helps to restore bacterial balance in order to control
Candida proliferation. Keep in mind that a proper diet is the key,
and you may need to use properly prescribed antifungal
medications as well.
Intestinal bacteria play
a key role in the primary immune system response to infections,
known as phagocytosis. The damage to intestinal bacteria by all
of the above means, disrupts phagocytosis, and makes you more
vulnerable to common infections and allergies.
Hair loss (non-hereditary),
conditions in children and adults are commonly associated with biotin (vitamin H or B7)
deficiency. Intestinal flora biosynthesis is the primary source
of endogenous (made by the body) biotin. It's biosynthesis is
easily disrupted by all of the factors that damage intestinal
A biotin deficiency is also associated with
diabetes. CRP gradually restores intestinal flora and adequate
biotin synthesis. The supplements included in Morning and
Evening Packs also
provide supplemental biotin.
Blood disorders, easy bruising, and
Intestinal flora synthesizes vitamin K, which is
responsible for blood coagulation. Vitamin K deficiency may lead
to a broad range of blood disorders, characterized by
hard-to-stop bleedings and easy bruising.
Inadequate coagulation is particularly
dangerous in cases of internal bleedings, such as peptic ulcer,
microscopic, hemorrhagic stroke, or trauma from a fall, car
accident, hard blow, etc. These hard-to-detect internal
conditions may cause death from the precipitous, but otherwise
invisible blood loss.
CRP gradually restores
intestinal flora and adequate blood coagulation. The supplements
included in the Morning and Evening Packs also provide supplemental vitamin
K. It isn‘t likely to interfere with aspirin or any
anti-coagulation medication (such as warfarin) you may be
taking, because the supplemental dose in two packets (2 mcg) doesn‘t exceed the recommended daily
allowance, or what you are likely to get daily from a mixed diet
and functioning, bacterial metabolism. Remember — you take this
medication to prevent blood clots caused by poor circulation,
not to cause deadly bleedings.
Nocturnal enuresis (bed-wetting),
incontinence, involuntary flatus
If your anal tone is normal
(i.e. there are no apparent physical causes, tested with
anorectal manometry), these conditions
may be contributed to by the undue pressure of large stools and
gases on the rectum, bladder, and urethra. You may find quick
relief by using CRP to normalize stools and eliminate these
At one point or another all colorectal
disorders start as functional and gradually progress towards an
organic, or irreversible condition. Colorectal Recovery Program
is similarly effective for these conditions in two ways: (1) it
provides symptomatic relief (less pain, discomfort, etc.) and,
(2) it prevents further damage, more pain, and so forth.
The following organic disorders are good
candidates for CRP:
Pain during defecation,
Both conditions may result from large or hard stools,
straining, constricted anal canal, scars, poor muscle tone,
post-surgery, spinal cord injuries, and
some other issues. CRP helps to overcome these problems by
normalizing stools and restoring (to a degree) regular bowel
movements. Ongoing maintenance may be required with Hydro-C.
Program is inappropriate for use during diverticulitis — an
acute inflammation of one or more diverticula It is, however, a
good preventive when used to maintain small and regular stools
instead of fiber.
Large and/or hard
stools and straining are the primary causes of internal and
external hemorrhoids. CRP is an excellent remedy for this
condition, because it reduces stool size and density to desired
levels, and allows the bowels to move without straining.
Fissures are generally hard
to heal and they tend to recur over and over again. They
progress further towards a worse outcome by the enlargement of
internal hemorrhoids, hence their qualification as an "organic"
disorder. The causes of anal fissures are similar to the cause
of hemorrhoidal disease — the forced (by straining) passing of
large and hard stools through the anal canal, further
constricted by internal hemorrhoids. CRP normalizes stools and
enhances healing dramatically. To prevent fissures re-opening,
you may need to keep maintaining small and soft stools with
Hydro-C for a considerable length of time.
Anorectal nerve damage
May result from
long-term straining, intentional stool withholding, a poor
outcome of anorectal surgery, anal sex, diabetic damage, trauma,
and numerous medications. People in this predicament no longer
experience a defecation urge, and miss bowel movements. This
results in fecal impaction, severe constipation, paradoxical
diarrhea, and further disorders. CRP helps to alleviate all
these conditions as described in the prior section.
Acquired or congenital (Hirschsprung's
The laws of physics apply to a dysfunctional
colon just as much as to a healthy one. In these cases — absence
of innervation, weak muscle tone, significant distention — your
goal is to maintain soft, moist or semi-liquid stools, and let
gravity do it‘s work. The degree of success will vary, depending
on the extent of damage or dysfunction. If laxatives are
effective for you, then CRP will be as effective, even more, but
with no side effects.
Obviously, there are other, more involved
colorectal disorders, such as adhesions, obstructions, spinal
cord nerve damage to colon innervation, endocrine dysfunctions,
Parkinson's disease, and so on. These conditions require a
specialized expertise, and aren't good cases for a
self-administered, supplemental program.
You may still use CRP to improve your overall
health and quality of life by restoring normal colon ecology and
normalizing stools. Unfortunately, I don‘t have any experience
with these conditions to provide further guidance.
As I noted before, organic, colorectal
disorders are mostly irreversible, and, after the initial
normalization of stools and restoration of colon ecology with
CRP, they may require life-long maintenance. Hydro-C is
inexpensive and an efficient remedy specifically formulated for
this purpose. Unlike laxatives, it is non-addictive, free of
side-effects, and suitable for permanent use.

normalizing stools (reducing size), softening up hard stools,

You won‘t be able to eliminate bloating, flatulence,
inflammation or large stools, for as long as you continue
consuming food with fiber. In fact, by mixing supplemental
bacteria into this gumbo, the bloating and flatulence are likely
to get worse, not better, from additional fermentation.

for 3 to 6 months for best results. This is the approximate
amount of time the body takes to replenish its‘ reserves of
essential micronutrients (in the Ageless Protection formula),
and to restore intestinal flora (colon ecology). The actual
length of time is determined by your age, health, diet, prior
health, and degree of colorectal damage.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why doctors aren‘t recommending a recovery
protocol similar to your Colorectal Recovery Program?
Actually, many do, particularly in countries
which provide universal health care, such as Germany or Russia.
Bacterial therapy is the most common treatment approach there
for functional colorectal disorders discussed on this page.
Unfortunately, not so in the United States. In
cases of colorectal complaints, the U.S.-based doctors
invariably are trained to look for ulcers, polyps, inflammation,
bleeding, enlarged hemorrhoids, and so on. When these late stage
pathologies aren‘t found (as is usually is the case for most
functional colorectal disorders), the patients‘
conditions are considered idiopathic (of unknown origins) or
psychosomatic (“in your mind”).
This, of course, wouldn‘t happen if physicians
examined stools and checked the status of intestinal flora — the
two major determinants of colorectal health. But beyond the
perfunctory, occult blood check, physicians in the U.S. (1)
rarely examine actual stools; (2) intestinal flora isn‘t
considered essential, and (3) disbacteriosis isn‘t recognized as
a bona fide disorder.
That‘s truly strange, considering that
intestinal flora is described in mainstream medical textbooks as
an essential “organ,” just like the lymph or blood. This
attitude, as I have already once explained, is similar to
diagnosing indigestion with x-ray and endoscopy, while totally
ignoring to check the levels of hydrochloric acid and
proteolytic enzymes in the gastric juice (which is, sadly, a
common practice as well).
Come to think of it, this isn't, really, that
surprising — medical doctors are not microbiologists. Examining patients‘ feces is
neither glamorous, pleasant, or even paid for. Hence, they have
little interest in stools, and are more focused on financially
rewarding procedures, such as colonoscopies or anorectal
manometry. To add insult to injury, the prep for colonoscopy and
radiation from virtual colonoscopy (CT scan) obliterate whatever
bacteria was there before the test.
So, when you finally visit a board-certified
gastroenterologist, more likely you‘ll get the treatment that
pays the most, rather than the most appropriate or most
effective. Sending your stools to clinical labs pays nothing.
Recommending you supplements to restore flora pays nothing.
On the other hand, a single colonoscopy pays up
to $2,000. A single surgery a few years down the road — ten to
twenty times that much. Surgery with complications caused by
medical errors — double or triple that. Last three months of
your life — around $200,000. No questions asked. Just fill out
the forms, and get paid.
In Europe, on the other hand, neither salaried
doctors nor patients within the confines of socialized medicine
have the luxury of submitting themselves to a battery of
expensive diagnostic tests whenever the poop isn't moving.
Hence, doctors there treat functional colorectal disorders not
with antibiotics (to kill bacteria and stop fermentation) and
fiber (to replace killed bacteria), but with supplements (to
restore bacteria) and a low-density diet (to eliminate
Simple, quick, safe, and effective, but, alas,
not as profitable.

different angle while answering these two questions:
What about medical
doctors, are they complicit in this scheme? and
How did you, and not
the medical doctors, come up with this information?

recommendations on fiber and GI disorders would be broadly
embraced by American doctors, their adoption would cause a
profound national recession and staggering unemployment in the
