Why take. . . . .
Q. In your book, you mentioned a product called Small Intestinal Detox (containing Marshmallow & Pepsin).....
What does it do?
A. If I had only one kind of pill to give everybody, for cancer or otherwise, I would want them to have Small Intestinal Detox. It would probably do the nation's health more good than any other one pill. It digests the mucus that coats the walls of many peoples’ small intestines. The mucus is caused by certain foods, such as pasteurized milk and many cooked foods. The mucus coats the villi on the wall of the small intestines. The villi are like tiny fingers that stick out from the intestinal wall to absorb nutrients from the digested food, which is primarily liquid. The mucus on the villi tends to block the absorption of nutrients from the food. Sometimes the mucus gets so thick and tough it is almost like a plastic film. Almost no nutrition can get through to the body. The person could take $500 worth of supplements a month along with a good diet and still get almost no value from them. The person would be starving so he would tend to keep eating more food, including protein. More of his pancreatic enzymes would be used to digest the protein, even though it could not be properly absorbed. If all the pancreatic enzymes were used up, there would be none left in the blood to destroy cancer cells.
Marshmallow root is a very sticky, gooey, vegetable material. It tends to stick the pepsin enzyme to the mucus on the intestinal wall long enough to digest some of the mucus coating. If Marshmallow-Pepsin is taken for this mucus coating will gradually be digested. The blood can then receive more nutrients from the food, even if it is from a poor diet
Q. Does the mucus block all nutrients from being absorbed?
A. It varies with different people. Sometimes it blocks minerals and larger molecules, while in some people, it partially blocks all nutrients.
Q. Would this be a cause of overweight in people who eat more food to get protein but who absorb only the smaller carbohydrate molecules while the larger protein molecules are blocked?
A. This is very true. We have found that almost every person who is very much overweight has a mucus problem.... Marshmallow and Pepsin combination should be used to make sure they can absorb the nutrients from their food. They should take 2 capsules with each meal for at least three months..... After that, it is a good idea to use Marshmallow and Pepsin combination periodically to keep the mucus from building up.....

*When the FDA removed comfrey root from the herbal market, Nature's Sunshine Products replaced it with Marshmallow root. Marshmallow root has many of the same properties of comfrey and been an acceptable substitute.
