When inflammation has been present for a long time in the rectum or anal canal, it sometimes causes scarring (fibrosis). Repeated ulceration and healing (often from proctitis) can also result in scar tissue. Surgical procedures for hemorrhoids, skin tags, anal dilation, sphincterectomy, etc. all cause scar tissue as the body heals the wound. Scar tissue is not as flexible as healthy tissue and the gradual build-up and thickening of scar tissue can narrow and constrict the rectal or anal canal, resulting in a stricture.

Sometimes this narrowing (anal stenosis or rectal stenosis) comes on very gradually, so you think you are constipated, rather than realizing there is a physical obstruction of scar tissue blocking your stool from coming out. Then of course, as you strain and push to get the stool out, this can cause more tearing (and as it heals, more scar tissue) along with hemorrhoids, strained rectal and anal muscles, spasm and aggravated nerves. The pudendal nerve branches like tree roots all throughout the levator ani muscles and can become trapped or aggravated. Rectal spasming (cramping) and aggravated nerves will then contrict your rectum even further.

The great news is that our experimental protocol for healing (dissolving) scar tissue in the rectal and anal canal is ready for other testers! This natural remedy uses powerful healing substances like DMSO, potassium iodide, aloe vera and colloidal silver. As you know, I test all remedies on myself first, then family members and friends, then LTYG Wellness Circle members and then we open it up to my larger pool of readers.

Fill in the form below and we will send you the Rectal StrictureHeal Ebook – at no charge – with all the instructions for how to administer this remedy. In the ebook I will give you all the details of how this protocol has worked so well for my own 23 year old scar tissue, plus one of my readers named Monica (name changed for privacy) who had a severe stricture in her anal canal. Monica even had her healing confirmed with a colonoscopy where her doctor said, “If I hadn’t been your doctor all along and seen your stricture for myself, I would never believe you had a stricture – the tissue is completely normal and there is absolutely no indication of where the stricture was.”

 

Remember though, that this protocol is still in the experimental phase, so be sure and read the ebook thoroughly (maybe twice) and follow your own gut regarding implementation.

If you suffer from anal stenonis, rectocele or rectal prolapse, then you may find this video helpful:

Post any questions, suggestions or ideas below and I will answer you here (so that everyone can benefit from our Q & A). Also, if you try Rectal StrictureHeal, please let us know your results!

p.s. If you suffer from strictures in your small or large intestine, I have a separate natural healing remedy for that called Intestinal StrictureHeal – so use that one instead (or use both if you have strictures in your rectum and intestines).

Soar Higher!

  • I am using a lot of your protocols on my daughter. I hope that she too will be med free really soon.
    Thanks for all your help.

  • I can feel the stricture band and I am severely constipated and am trying the stricture heal along with the magnesium citrate and potassium citrate. Nothing is working. Just blood and straining to defecate. I am also using Milk of Magnesia. I am curious if Jini has had any luck with others finding healing through this stricture protocol yet. I am only on day five with it so I probably have a way to go, but I really want the stricture gone. Is it possible that the stricture will go away or will it just soften up? I have also contacted a Craniosacral therapist but have not heard back yet. So right now what I am doing is the Wild Oregano, the stricture protocol, magnesium citrate and potassium citrate, Milk of Magnesia.

    I imagine the person that Jini talks about in her book, Lori Main, is located in Canada and I am in the Bay Area in CA, so that probably wouldn’t be possible for me. I am having such a hard time dealing with the fact that I allowed this to happen to me. I wish I had never had the surgery to remove the perianal fatty tissue. I am positive the needle up my anus before surgery is what caused this. Any response you could give I am sure will help.

    I will keep you posted on how the stricture protocol is working at a later time. Is it possible to write to Jini directly as I see others have in a forum type setting or does she not do that?

  • Hi CC – Have you filled out the form and received the Rectal StrictureHeal Instruction ebook (above)? Just want to make sure you have the right one as the instructions and formulas are quite different from the Intestinal StrictureHeal one.

    You know, given your history, you may have a scar tissue stricture there, OR you may have rectal spasming which can also completely shut off defecation. So I would also follow the instructions in the ebook above for Rectal Spasm – take the herbal muscle relaxants (crampbark or black haw), the magnesium oil hot baths and the hot castor oil pack on the levator ani muscles. Until you get the rectum to relax, none of the laxative agents are going to work. In fact, they are just going to increase the pressure and make the spasming worse.

    The other thing is you could easily have myofascial and ligament damage from the surgical/med procedures. Again, I give instructions in the ebook for dealing with this. But since you are in CA, you are close to one of the BEST therapists in the world for this type of work – Mary Cox. I believe she is still at this clinic:

    27401 Los Altos, Ste 488
    Mission Viejo, CA 92691

    Sorry, I don’t have her phone number. If you book with her directly (rather than booking through Clear Passage, it will be MUCH cheaper). In fact, when you find her phone number or email, can you please post it here? Here’s a couple of videos I did with Mary that will explain some of what you might be going through (be sure and watch both):

    All About Abdominal Adhesions and Obstruction
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpSv4Br8yjY

    Tracing Pain & Dysfunction In the Body
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhA4nx0LHQw

    Lastly, yes, 5 days is too soon for the Rectal StrictureHeal to work – 2-3 weeks is when you may first start to see change. I know how awful it is, so just follow the relaxation protocols above and book quickly with Mary!

    best,
    Jini

  • My problem is a urinary (urerthral) stricture / Acute Urinary Retention. Have been catheterized for 6 months and Urologist has thrown me under the bus: “I can remove the catheter but you’re on your own if you end up in emergency unable to void”. Your org is only one to address possible solutions as Uttarbasti is beyond California practitioners. Having 8-10 bladder spasms a day which I believe are my body’s reaction to catheter, and now am told that I have a bladder outpouching (right ureter) which can not be being helped by all the downward (Apana Vayu) strain and imbalance triggered by the foreign object. I am most interested in what I can eat/drink to prepare for catheter removal and what solution I can fill bladder (by catheter) before, or eye-dropper into urethra after catheter removal 🙁

  • MARK – Whilst you know I cannot give personal health advice, If I had this condition I may experiment with trying the following for myself:

    a) Using a syringe to inject the 20% solution up the catheter. After removal, either apply to the urethral opening, but ideally, continue to syringe (or eye-dropper) up the urethral opening into the urethra. Sometime dental syringes are easier to use than droppers, but I would test and see.

    b) Download the Intestinal StrictureHeal eBook as it has an ORAL component to the treatment. If this can positively affect strictures in the intestines, why not in the bladder/urethra? Also as the urine passes through the urethra, it may carry some of the solution with it.

    http://www.listen2yourgut.com/blog/natural-healing-remedy-for-intestinal-strictures/

    Lastly, I would use EFT to address my feelings about the “strain and imbalance triggered by the foreign object”. Emotions – particularly negative emotions, fear and trauma can hinder healing just as much (and sometimes more) than physical factors. I would NOT neglect this important step:

    http://www.MeridianTherapyTechniques.com/

    You, of course, must only do what you feel safe with and see the Disclaimer below.

    PLEASE post back here and let us know what you decided to do and how it went.

    p.s. If I still felt unconvinced about the emotional healing component, I would here:

    and download the free teleseminar with Dr. Gabor Mate (at the end of the movie): When The Body Says No.

  • Hi Jini;
    Just a note to thank you for what you do. Every time I read something posted by you or have read something from your book, it sends me off exploring my area and having other things pop up that might help me. I have written to you before and am now trying viceral manipulation for my anal stricture. There are a couple people left in my area to try. Everyone I have seen has said that floor therapy will probably help. If I don’t get the help I need, I will travel to LA, CA to see Mary Cox. It’s just that it is an 8 hour drive for me and I wouldn’t know where to stay or how long I would be there, but thanks again for what you do! If you have any other suggestions or opinions on what I am doing, please post.
    I have been told that my proctitis is all healed and I am left with scar tissue. I have been on Chinese herbs for 7 yrs and I know you are not fond of that concept, but they healed the tissue that was all inflamed and I could not have felt better in my whole life until the stricture.
    Do you know if strictures tend to get worse or once they’re created they remain the same size?

  • Hi Jini, my name is Michelle. I am a mother of 2 and I have had Crohns/ UC for over 20 years. I have been on all the drugs (prednisone, steriods, enemas, remicade, humira, 6mp, sulfasalazine, asacol,..) you name it! I am now in remission however I have developed an anal stricture about 5 years ago. I have had it dilated several times and have recently been told I should look into a permanent ileostomy bag because of all the scar tissue build up. My last dilation was 3 days ago. I have been reading for almost a year about the natural healing approach and am willing to give it a shot! Couple questions?CAn I buy the formula with the potassium iodine, DMSO, Colodial Silver and Aloe Vera already made in a suppository form? Also, how long does the garlic smell last? Where can I buy the Black Haw? How can I get the meditation music? Because the DMSO penetrates the tissue should I be concerned about clearing out my bowels prior to use. I am the type of person who would want to do this correctly so I would need a clearly written out step by step process on how to do this:) Optimisitically yours!

  • I had hamerhoids then i go to a doctor who cut it by thread therapy then hamerhoids go away but small fissure comes now i have a problem nearly same as anal stenosis or rectal stenosis ( am not sure actualy)
    symptoms-
    diarrhea from 3 years since i had hamerhoids ( sounds stunning??)
    not exactly dilute but it is 50% diluted than normal stool
    stool is like wire coming of anus 😀 lol but its best example which clearly shows narrow pasage
    hard sphincter muscle
    some time i can feel stool up to anus point but can deficate them because no presure and passage is blocked when i try to exert presure

    again and again bowel moment atleast 5 times a day

    is it anal stenosis?
    Which ointment should i use?

  • Well, whether you have scar tissue from the cutting. Or from repeated tearing (fissure) and healing, doesn’t really matter. It’s still scar tisuue.

    However, if you still have hemorrhoids, then you should deal with that first:

    http://www.listentoyourgut.com/symptoms/18/a-hemorrhoid.html

    Then after you’ve healed the hemorrhoids, you can determine whether your anus is tight due to emotional trauma and stress – in which case you need biofeedback therapy or EFT:

    http://www.MeridianTherapyTechniques.com

    OR whether you have a build up of scar tissue, in which case you can try Rectal StrictureHeal (still in experimental stages). See post above and fill in the form to get the eBook for free.

  • Hi Jini,

    I think I may have posted in the wrong area already, but here I go again. I had a hemorrhoidectomy in 2008 and have a small amount of scar tissue that is easily irritated. I have a few scars right on the wall of my anus and you can feel a rough patch of skin where i was cut just a little past the opening. Since the surgery the opening has narrowed, and that area where the scar is can be irritated very easily. My question to you is do you think the Rectal Stricture protocol will dissolve the scar tissue that is there? If and when it does dissolve with it be smooth like the rest of the skin down there and be more elastic? Right now it is very rigid. i went to the doctor a few months ago and they told me there is nothing that needs to be done about the scar inside, but its just more annoying than anything because it hurts and sometimes bleeds.

    Thanks!

  • CJ – yes, the protocol sounds like it would be promising for you. Please post back after a few months and let us know how it went for you. You may also want to combine usage with cocoa butter suppositories, I feel this will help to keep the irritation down.

  • Hi Jini,
    About 5 yrs ago I had an aal fissure healed, and after a terrible proctology pt. developed another one going on 2 yrs now, i do ave history of constipating ad bad bloating no dr knows why they put me on everything. Im sure i ave interal hemmorhoids and a very tight sphincter muscle with scar tisse from last fissure. After reading your books I tried acupuncture, EFT,craniosacal therapy, fissure heal, still take healthy trinity probiotics, comfrey ointment. I is ordered a infrared laser pad. I am now 36 wks pregnant (miracle) and I believe everything helped me thank you. What do you recommend I do after the baby is born that is safe while breast feeding? Not sure if metacleanse is safe to take for my constipation as I currently take konsyl. Don’t know if I should or can start to Heal recal stricture or fissure first and wat is ok when breast feeding. Thank you for videos on pooping they helped a great deal.
    I contacted Eileen fissure she does do phone sessions do you recommend that ?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Cyndi,

      The best thing to do is to consult with your physician if you’re unsure whether or not the protocol is fine to continue using while you are breastfeeding. He or she should be able to tell you if the ingredients will have any adverse effects. Sorry for the late response!

      Kind regards,

  • Hi Jini, 

    I have had Crohn’s since 2001 and in a recent colonoscopy it was discovered that I have a very tight stricture in the sigmoid colon. The GI was not able to get past it because it is very narrow so I am going for a CT virtual colonoscopy in a few days. I am not sure yet if this is caused by inflammation or scar tissue but I assume that at least some scar tissue may be present. 

    I was asked to look into surgeons but I feel that would put me on a worse path in the long run. I will be beginning humira soon and have been on pentasa. 

    I am very interested in trying the intestinal strictureheal and I have already read the ebook. I have heard that humira can lead to more scar tissue hence worsening strictures but as I mentioned mine may be from inflammation and respond to the medication. 

    I would prefer to take a completely natural approach to my healing but I am hesitant to do it for now after hearing all this news from my doctor. 

    I am wondering if I can begin taking intestinal stricture heal while on humira and pentasa or if it is something that should be done while not on these medications. Should i try to reduce inflammation before dealing with scar tissue or deal with both  simultaneously? 

    Thank you for all your great advice and research! 

    1. Hi Ava,

      It’s always best to check with your physician if you’re unsure whether any of Jini’s protocols will conflict with prescription medication. Generally, it’s easier to deal with scar tissue if there aren’t any other symptoms present.

  • Hi Jini,
    I started taking the Absorb plus shakes on January 31st so today is my 15th day. I have had the liquid stools and some formed. I usually drink 3 shakes per day and add oil to 2 of them along with alternating the CoQ10 and the Grapeseed extract. I take the Vit D3 and the biflavanoids 2 times per day. I started taking the probiotics on February 7th but noticed with your oil of oregano plan you do the oregano 3-5times a day and probiotics once so I just started that today. I think I have strictures. When my solid bm pass through they cause my skin to stretch up and I massage it and then it is able to pass through. My doctor told me that if I had surgery to remove some of my small intestine it would be at least 18 inches. I have had no surguries and have not been on any medicine for over 2 years. I have been drinking Kangen water and that has helped alot. However my abdomen was sensitive to touch between my belly button and my pubic bone so that is when I stumbled on your info. Ever since I have taken the Absorb plus shakes my abdomen is not tender. I however was wondering if I should do the stricture protocol and if that is ok to include with what I am doing now? And I was going to add the calcium nano minerals, Mucosaheal,and Aloe Vera Juice. Are all these ok to take together? Another thing last night when I was looking through all the info on your site I felt anxious and overwhelmed I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction with all this? Thanks Jennifer

    1. Hi Jennifer,

      It’s great to hear that the products have helped with the tenderness in your abdomen! Yes, it is fine to take all of the items you mentioned together. For more information on how to schedule your supplements, check out the link below:

      http://blog.listentoyourgut.com/confusing-supplement-schedule/

      It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with information at this stage so a good strategy is to start with the most prominent issues and work your way through the appropriate protocol(s) in the Listen to Your Gut book.

  • Jini,
    I also wanted to ask you if I should be getting more calories per day. I have 4 childrenat home and work outside the home 2-3 days per month. I am 5’6″ and at the present time weigh 122. Thanks Jennifer

    1. Hi Jennifer,

      If you’re on the elemental diet, a good way to gauge how many calories you should be consuming is on page 51 of Jini’s The IBD Remission Diet book as it breaks down calorie intake based on your current situation.

  • Hi Jini,
    I found your site looking for alternative treatment to treat colon stricture in my dog. I’m like crazy trying to find something that can help him. Last July, he was diagnosed with Anal Sac Adenocarcinoma. He had surgery to remove the tumor, but the margins were not clean, so, in September, he received 20 radiation treatments targeting the tumor site and also abdominal lymph nodes that are the first place for metastasis in this kind of tumor. The abdominal ultrasound show a thickening of the colon wall in the portion that was expose in the radiation field. Consequently, he has difficulty to do poop. He tried very hard but also is very painful, break my heart to see him in so much pain. For this reason, I would like to know if you have any suggestion that I can try with him. Is there something that I can do to help him? How can the stricture in the colon disappear? Please, help me. The veterinarian don’t know how to treat, they only suggest colonoscopy, but I don’t want to put him through this test

    1. Hi Idania,

      I wish we had an answer for you but I’m afraid that we have not tested any of Jini’s protocols on animals and don’t have any plans to do so. We wish you the best of luck with your dog and hope he recovers.

  • Hi idania, for your dog you should buy some food grade diatamaceous earth…an amazing product which should clear Up any bowel trouble your dog is experiencing… Dave

  • Yes, I have heard great things about diatamaceous earth from a number of pet owners. Also, I would get your dog off all packaged foods and feed him his natural diet of raw meat and organs (with a few veggies as would normally be found in the stomach of prey). Google this as there are lots of books and info available on feeding dogs raw. The difference in stool quality between dogs and cats fed raw vs. processed foods is amazing – plus their stool and breath doesn’t stink.

    Hello Jini, While doing a Google search, I came across your site. Please contact me as I have much to tell you and I would like to be profiled/interviewed by the media to share my situation and get some answers. Basically-I am a 60year old male with a history of Crohn’s Disease (Regional Enertitis) going back to 1968. 1997-A routine colonoscopy gone bad (I was told my GI track was friable) at the time I was getting iron injections b/c I was told I was borderline anemic. The colonoscopy in 97 resulted in a puncture in the colon, and thanks to an xray during recovery, the puncture was discovered. I had 75% of my colon removed. I was supposed to be free of Crohns after the surgery, however, at that time (May 1997) my then wife was living in Dallas, TX planning on uprooting us to move there. Although she flew in to Philadelphia, where we were (Bucks County), this acrimonious “wife” decides to have the movers box up our little townhouse and proceeds to leave Phila with my son and dog back to Plano/Dallas in order to make settlement on the house in Texas, oblivious to my medical and life needs, prognosis and fails to get medical clearance, instead trying to sue the GI doctor.
    Actually, for abandoning me in the hospital while I was in Intensive Care. She has me fly in 2 weeks after hospital discharge, again, failing to get medical clearance. Most people on the planet would have stayed put, and cancel relocation. Vitally important. More on this when you contact me. I did get divorced 1 ½ years later, and this repugnant, acromonius ex wife , clearly was not looking out for her family-her husband. The stress made things much worse.
    I have been back in Phila since 1999. I’ve been out of work and on disability for 4 years. Since 2010, I find out I have Diabetes type II, Psoriasis, Severe Sleep Apnea, and an urgent need to get both knees replaced. I have no savings. So I cannot get surgery. And I may have bleeding from the stricture. Im told, take care of the Crohns before the surgery. Now I am straining, I know I have had the stricture a long time, as well as gallstones. I’ve had 2 or 3 hospitalizations for a partial bowel obstruction. There is evidentally a second stricture, perhaps at the
    anastomosis where the resection occured. The questions include, is the severe pain from the knees (miniscus tear, and now no cartilidge) or the stricture, or both, or could it also be nerve pain from diabetes? Or side effects from 1 or more drugssuch as Januvia) I am on a ton of medications. Please contact me for more info and your feedback. Thanks, Larry Fulmer. designer58@comcast.net

  • I’m using the formula for fissures and strictures and it is working! I use it topically every night (sometimes I miss a few) and it is decreasing the pain hugely!!! I can also feel that the area is less inflamed and healing. I’ve only been using it one week!

  • Dear Miss Patel,

    6 weeks ago I had a surgery to remove my hemorrhoids for the second time. Last surgery I had was in 1983. My anal opening has been significantly reduced may be to 5 mm. Perhaps a stricture causing anal stenosis. The lining of my anal canal has become hard and quite inflexible over about an inch or 2. I have to push and strain to defecate and the stool size is very small. Am I a good candidate to use your Anal Stricture Heal formula. I am just a little afraid of using DMSO in your protocol as I have read that it can sometimes be fatal. Also, my doctor has put me on Anal Dilators which I use with Xylocaine Gel. Can I use your formula along with dilators and the gel? Please reply promptly as I going through a tough time. Thanks

  • Good morning Jini,
    First of all thank you for sharing your precious experience with other people.
    I’m an Italian woman, I’m 30 years old and I’m really desperate…I fight since 2008 against an hernia in my rectum that’s spoiling my life. I’m really exhausted. No medicine, no diet, no treatment work for me to alleviate my pain and my daily hardship. Surgery is impossible because dangerous…doctors say I’m too young.
    I really don’t know what to do.
    I knew you following your videos on YouTube and I red your advices and your natural treatments. I pray every day to find a solution and in this moment of my life I really need an help.
    Do you think some of your treatments work for my rectocele too? If yes…what’s the better for me?
    I really thank you for your attention.

    Lovely.
    Francesca

  • I had intestinal and rectal strictures and most of the other symptoms referred to in your site. Because I was traveling, staying with friends and in hotels I wasn’t able to do the protocols correctly. I had to simplify and adapt.I used 70% roll on DMSO on the abdominal stricture area once or twice daily. I put the DMSO on a cocoa butter suppository and used that once or twice daily. I took 1/2 tsp 70% liquid DMSO ORALLY in a glass of water before bed. When it all became too stinky for my long suffering husband, I began taking
    N ACETYLGLUCOSAMINE (NAG) 750 mg am and pm orally AND RECTALLY.
    Extremely healing from mouth to anus. ( read the studies about it.) THANK YOU!

  • Hi Jini!
    I have been having terrible symptoms for almost 8 months now: weakness in my left arm and left every time there’s ‘activity’ near the anus. I thought it was cancer, and was barking up the wrong tree. I finally landed on one of your sites and read about Anal Stenosis, etc.
    I began to notice that most of my weakness is occurring simultaneously with this anal ‘activity’… which usually lasts a long time after the activity.
    I’m also now getting some mild pain down there too.
    I realized I had a hemorrhoidectomy 25 years ago, and that maybe this could be the culprit. I’ve been pretty constipated for years… though my stools are still usually normal sized.
    Anyway… I just wanted to know if you think that my current weakness/neuropathy could be linked to this 25 year old operation… and if so, how could the nerve damage have taken so long to appear?
    Also… is there hope for this to heal?
    Thanks… I just ordered the E-book and will devour it… but I’d like to hear what you think too before embarking.
    Do I need to worry about going ‘septic’ here?

      I’m afraid that we’re not able to speculate about your specific condition as we aren’t medical professionals (Jini included) but I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have about the protocols and products mentioned in the eBook. You may also want to check out Jini’s symptom page for pudendal nerve entrapment since there’s a concern about nerve damage:

  • Hello, I just had surgery done about 4 days ago. They did a partial sphincterotomy and anoplasty. In my understanding I had a scar tissue (Fissure)and problem with my Sphincter Muscle and they removed the hemeroids I had. I’ve suffered with constipation pretty much all my life and I guess over the years and now that I am 41 years old this came upon me and boy I have to tell you it is painful. Since the surgery its been so so but I had a question for you on how do I deal with the healing process of dealing with the bowel movement since the surgery? It has been my worse nightmare of pain and I cry everytime I go because it feels like someone is pooring alcohle on a open wound. Once I am done I sit on the sith bath right away to get some relief but then after it takes about almost a few hours for the inflamation to relax or I am taking NORCO for the pain and IBP 800mg. Is there something you can suggest that I can do to get through the healing since the surgery? I am so desparate, please help me.

    1. Hi Coquese,

      Jini has used comfrey ointment repeatedly on broken skin for herself and her kids. She has also used it as a suppository and in a Healing Implant Enema to stop colonic bleeding. You, of course, should do your research, follow your naturopathic doctor’s advice, and only do what feels safe for you.. Please note that professional herbalists and naturopathic physicians take a very different stance on comfrey use from the established authorities. Many herbalists and NDs feel it’s safe to use comfrey as long as you don’t use it continually, long-term. Therefore, they recommend you use it in moderate doses for 3 to 6 months, then take a break of 1 month to allow the liver to cleanse properly, then resume use for 3 to 6 months, etc. as needed. Comfrey has become one of the FDA’s targeted substances – likely due to its effectiveness, so when you do your research, keep that in mind. Here’s a link to a product like this that Jini uses:

      http://shoppe.listentoyourgut.com/christophers-original-formulas-comfrey-ointment-2-oz/

      For more ideas, you may want to check out Jini’s symptom page on anal fistulas and abscesses here:

      http://www.listentoyourgut.com/symptoms/19/an-anal-fistula.html

      The protocols at the symptom page above are designed for much more extreme situations than what you’re dealing with but could be useful.

  • Hi, I was wondering when to use the rectalStitureHeal (DMSO) remedy.
    Do you put the drops in after a bowel movement or do you also need to flush after a bowel movement and get that fluid out to try to make the rectum as clean as possible before applying DMSO?

    Also, is using fissureHEAL the same or can you just insert it after a bowel movement, and no flush needed.

    Thank you

    1. Hi Roger,

      The short answer is that you should probably have a bowel movement prior to using the rectal Strictureheal and clean the area but no flush is strictly necessary (if you’re referring to an enema or something). The whole process is explained in the instruction eBook which you can get for free at the link below if you don’t already have it:

      http://blog.listentoyourgut.com/natural-remedy-for-anal-stenosis-and-stricture/

      Regarding FissureHeal, yes, you can just insert it after a bowel movement and no “flush” (enema etc) is necessary.

      Kind regards,

  • It says to not use plastic with DMSO.

    What would be the best dropper in that case to administer DMSO?
    I read that a copper dropper is sufficient but I noticed that the end of it was rubber and was wondering how do you get 30 drops into the dropper with ought the DMSO touching the rubber squeeze top, or is there no way around this.

    Thanks so much.

  • Hi Jini, Quick question on which protocol I should be looking at – Rectal or Intestinal Stricture Heal. Had Rectal Cancer Tumor removed last Nov – along with a temporary ostomy. Had reversal in Jan – then in April had another surgery with the following: exploratory laparotomy, extensive lysis of adhesions, colectomy, resection of colorectal anastomosis, formation of new colorectal anastomosis, diverting ileostomy, takedown of splenic flexure. In June – had ileostomy takedown.

    Feeling like I’m getting another stricture – and most likely lots of scar tissue again.

    Can you advise which protocol I should be looking at?

    Thank you –

    1. Hi Kim,

  • Hello Jini, I just downloaded your ebook for anal stricture healing for my husband but I am unsure if this is the best plan for us to start with. About 10 years ago, my husband was admitted into the hospital and put on an IV so his intestines were basically inactive for about a week. When the IV was taken out, he was supposed to be put on a liquid diet and then transition to solid foods but the nurse made a mistake and brought him a solid meal. His next bowl movement caused multiple fissures and severe bleeding and his intestines and rectum have not been the same since. He fissures internally with every bowl movement and because of that has lots of scar tissue built up as well as hemorrhoids, nerves aggravated by the scar tissue and inflammation. A year after the initial trauma he had a doctor look at it and the doctor said it was in horrible condition and I’m sure it’s only gotten worse up there over the last 10 years. He is in chronic pain that ranges from very bad to excruciating and debilitating. He says it feels like someone is sawing his insides with a sharp knife. He also has the spasms described in the ebook but he said that these come and go and are not a constant thing for him. He does not want to have a colostomy bag and has resigned to live with the pain. He is a very tough man and does really well with the pain, rarely talking about it and does not want to let it dominate his or our family’s life but it would be amazing for him to have some relief. There are days he just has to lie still in bed because the pain is so bad. So my question is what should we address first- the fissures, the hemorrhoids, the scar tissue in his rectum and intestines… I would assume dealing with the scar tissue first would make since because that seems to be the root of the rest of the problems. Also, do you have any dietary recommendations for healing the gut while we are doing this protocol? I’ve been looking at different aspects of the GAPS diet and the Body Ecology diet to help.

    Thanks so much,
    Leah

    1. Hi Leah, I cannot give advice on your husband’s situation. But if it were me, I would use both Rectal StrictureHeal and FissureHeal suppositories each day. I would use a FissureHeal suppository whenever I am unlikely to have a bowel movement (usually at night) and then the StrictureHeal in the morning or afternoon. This way I could both heal and dissolve scar tissue at the same time, while getting the maximum chance for relief. Rectal StrictureHeal should also take care of the hemorrhoids.

      Have him listen to this audio (free gift) when he is lying down in pain:

      http://blog.listentoyourgut.com/free-audio-healing-session-for-rectal-issues/

      Re. Diet, both of those are good choices. But if you’re also dealing with intestinal infection and inflammation, then I would look at using my Gut Infection protocol in addition to diet:
      http://shoppe.listentoyourgut.com/jinis-healing-guide-natural-treatments-for-gut-infection-softcover-by-jini-patel-thompson/

      *this book is also available in eBook format, if you prefer.

      Hope that helps and let us know how it goes. It is just horrific that your husband has been dealing with this for 10 years – words fail me. But thank god you have never stopped looking for help for him – he is blessed to have you.

  • Jini, thank you for taking such an important stuff in your website and in your books, for consultation and clarification.
    I’m 47 years old (live in Brazil) and I did a removal of hemorrhoids and prolapse using PPH stapler. In the middle of the surgery the stapler failed and only tapped half of prolapse and hemorrhoids, and the remainder was removed using the traditional method of surgery.
    3 months after the surgery, I have a lot of scars, anal restriction and anal pain for 2 or 3 hours after evacuating. Now my stools have the diameter of a pencil and need urgent help.
    I read your books and decided to apply your Rectal StrictureHeal formula and protocol, but I’m having problems to find Aloe Vera Juice. What I found here has Glycol. Do you think that I can use it?
    I have now fissure and do not have here your FissureHeal suppositories. What do you recommend to cure Fissures? or What can I do to buy FissureHeal?
    Thank you in advance for your answers

  • Hello,

    Thank you for this blog!

    Is this protocol also effective for rectocele? I have a small rectocele with a lax perineal wall.

    Curious why colloidal silver is part of the protocol. Is there a pathogen concern as well?

    Finally, what are your thoughts on the use of serrapeptase to dissolve scar tissue?

    1. Hello Bella,

      Jini has a different protocol for rectocele which she talks about at the link below:

      http://blog.listentoyourgut.com/natural-treatment-for-rectal-prolapse-and-outpouching/

      The colloidal silver in the anal stenosis protocol is included to assist the healing process because it is antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. The use of wound dressings containing silver is increasing due to its effectiveness in fighting antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as MRSA.

      Regarding serrapeptase, Jini has read that it has shown a lot of benefit with internal scarring when taken orally. She considers Serrapeptase a good adjunct and more of a longer-term therapy. Definitely worth taking, but it won’t do the targeted treatment that this protocol will. i.e. this protocol is much stronger.

      Kind regards,

  • Jini–I have a post surgical stricture about an inch in from my anus, most of my rectum having been removed in surgery. Is it possible to deliver the rectal stricture heal (20%DSMO, etc) by incorporating it into a home-made coconut oil suppository. The suppository is something recommended by a holistic practitioner.

    Thanks.

    1. Hi Joe,

      Sure, that’s theoretically possible if you can get the suppository to solidify enough so that you can deliver it to the target area. Jini would love to hear how that works out for you if you decide to proceed. Otherwise, the dropper method Jini outlines in the eBook should also work since the dropper should be plenty long enough to apply the formula to the area you’re describing.

      Kind regards,

  • Yeah, I’ve been using the coconut-oil suppositories for a while, but without the preparation added. I make a bunch at a time and put them in a (specially colored) ice-tray in the freezer.

    1. Hmmm Joe – not sure how freezing will work with the DMSO – you’re not supposed to refrigerate it because it separates out from the formula. So it would then not stay in dilution, but would clump together in a concentrated dose. Why don’t you try using cocoa butter instead? Very healing and also solidifies at room temperature. Here’s my vid showing how to make suppositories this way:

  • Hi, I was diagnosed with Crohns a little over four years ago at the age of 18. I had a very complex fistula system in my rectum area and it was very inflamed. So the result was a colostomy. After four years, my rectum area has become a lot better and the fistulas seems to be gone. Since I am battling for reversal, this was good news to me, but I have one problem; anal stenosis. And it is severe. It is the result of healing from the inflamation and fistulas. This anal stenosis is the only thing standing in my way before I can get a reversal, so I am very desperate to find a solution to get rid of this stenosis. And I really believe that the stenosisformula will help me, but I live in Norway, and here it is illegal to import the ingredients in the formula. Is there any way I can get a hold of the ingredients from ltyg?

    1. Hi James,

      It’s great to hear that your fistulas seem to be gone! I wish I had a better answer for you but I’m afraid that we’re unable to ship anything to Norway for the reason you mentioned. We have no issues shipping to Sweden, Denmark, and the UK so, if you have any friends or family in any of those countries with whom you could meet up and get the ingredients, that’s a potential solution.

  • I have adhesions (recently discovered) from a surgery 16 yrs ago, that just caused me major problems starting last year. Physicians wanted to “slice and dice me”, but I chose the “Clear Passage”treatment instead. It would seem that I also suffer from anal stricture’s and a Hemorrhoid (now with all the bowel straining). So I emailed and asked Cris at LTYG the following question, >>” Question, I have both the “Hemorrhoids” and “AS” problem. So I will be taking both protocols. In using the HemorrHeal Liquid Formula for Internal Hemorrhoids do I just take the AS Formula at a different time of day or what?<<

    The reply was for me to be careful with the amount of "potassium iodide" I take when doing 2 protocols . "That's it, my answer to the question"!!! This answer certainly doesn't answer the question! Da! each protocol calls for a certain amount of "potassium iodide". Do only stay with one protocol or can I do both at different times of the day.

    1. Hi Rick and thanks for following up when Cris couldn’t answer your question sufficiently. As these are “experimental” protocols, it’s hard for someone who hasn’t personally used them to get a handle on them. Anyway, I would use ONLY the protocol for Anal Stricture and that should automatically take care of your hemorrhoid at the same time. Please let me know if it doesn’t! Also, be sure and watch my videos to make sure you are defecating in the right position and using the counter-pressure (if needed) to eliminate straining – watch the entire playlist here (except you won’t need #5):

  • Jini– In the Oral Protocol for Intestinal Stricture, is the DMSO the key ingredient. It’s the one thing that gives me a bit of pause based upon the little knowledge I’ve been able to get outside of your website.

    I’ve been using the Rectal “dropper” procedure, as well. I had most of rectum and most of sigmoid colon removed a few years ago and had a serious stricture about “an inch in.” Gastro-doc was very surprised at how supple the area had become.

    1. Hi Joe,

      It’s great to hear that the rectal protocol seems to be working well for you. If you’re still a little leery of the DMSO then you might want to check out the blog post below where Jini goes into detail about it:

    I just wanted to tell you that your video #2 (which is a very fitting title), is terrific.
    I was/am far to lazy to check if it’s solely for women, but if I neglect following the ‘vagina’ steps, I imagine that it would be good for men, too.
    I have multiple issues, regarding the colo-rectal region, and have had 10 major surgeries and counting.

  • Hi Jini,

    I’m trying to recover from a hemherroidectomy and follow up sphincterotmy and most recently a fissurectomy with botox after getting a major problem with muscle spasms preventing blood flow to fissures which caused a fistula. Recently, I have had a major increase in nerve pain and soreness. I think this might be due to scar tissue forming together with nerve pain caused by the botox wearing off? I have read your suggested protocol for stricture heal and was hoping this could help me with the scar tissue problem? What specific advice do you think you could give me?

  • Hello, I started the protocol on the 13th Nov. After a week or so I got a little constipated and strained a lot. I began to bleed and experienced great pain even three days after my problematic bowel movement. I stopped using the DMSO and it’s been a week now but I am still not healed. My question is: has the DMSO weakened my tissue and this is why I felt that bad? Can I use it again? If yes when? Thank you

    1. Hi Delia, you really need to stay on top of the constipation issue so that you are not damaging the tissues you are trying to heal. From my personal experience, it feels like the formula makes the tissue more tender. Which, if you think about it, it would have to! Scar tissue is very tough, inflexible tissue. So breaking it down into pliable, flexible, soft tissue would involve an increase in vulnerability. Therefore, you must also be protective of that tissue and not traumatize or damage it during the process. If you don’t have good, reliable ways of managing/eliminating constipation, then please get my book, Listen To Your Colon. I would not start the StrictureHeal process again until you’ve got the constipation handled. In the meantime, you can use these remedies to heal the rectal tissue:
      http://www.listentoyourgut.com/symptoms/17/an-anal-fissure.html

      You can also use these remedies during the StrictureHeal process to protect the tissues and help prevent any further trauma in case you are constipated from time to time.

  • Hi Jini,

    I’ve been using the 20% Stricture Heal formula now for one month applying it once a day. I generally feel that my fissure is getting softer and that my anal canal is getting softer. Having BMs goes pretty easy and I generally don’t worry too much on the subject altogether.

    My stool has pretty much remained of a similar size though (about the width of my little finger) which has made doubt if it actually is working.

    Also the other day I forgot to take my laxative, which I have been taking now for about 5 months since I had my herrmaroidecthomy and the result was that I needed to do some straining during BMs and I was sore hours afterwards.

    Don’t know what to do at this point. Go to the 30% formula maybe? Could I be doing anything else wrong? hold I try finding a therapist instead maybe?

    1. Hi Lars,

      If you still have the ingredients then you may want to try the 30 or 40% formula to see if you experience better results. There are also a few other things in the eBook that you can try (if you haven’t already) which may accelerate the healing process. Thanks for taking the time to share your progress and we’d love to hear how it all works out for you regardless of what you decide to do to address the stricture.

  • Hi there. Need help on what protocol regimen to take. Here is shortened version of my background:
    I have UC for a few years. Was on remission for a year and symptoms came back one year ago. Symptoms are not as severe as before. Don’t want to have a colonoscopy until I’ve already done other natural ways of healing. Had a food intolerance test. Am on a simple rotation diet according to doctor’s orders. Following Low-FODMAP and AIP diet too. Wanted to do Absorb Plus because it tastes great, but I can’t have dairy, vanilla. I have a long list of reactive-foods. Sun Warrior tasted bad for me and I didn’t like texture because I can only have it with water. Attempted clear broth diets, but I became weak. Making pureed foods that suit all my diets put together and hoping that will sustain me which is fine.
    After taking probiotics, l-glutamine with aloe, (ntzymes from my doctor), your recommendations of b-50, systemic c, (vitamin d 10,000 iu from my doctor), e-gems, co-enzyme q10, (propax vitamins from my doctor which is strong on the B-12), Udo’s oil, (liquid omega 3s from my doctor) mucosaheal, (and enema probiotics from my doctor), most of my symptoms healed.
    But here is what won’t go away:
    Symptoms:
    – no urge to BM – bleeding only happens in and with defecation – if I BM, unformed stools sometimes in light color with blood – if i feel urge, most times nothing comes out – sometimes feel pressure on anus when I do anything throughout day, like wanting to BM, but nothing there – few times (not as much as before) can’t tell the difference between urge to BM or pass gas..when I think it’s gas, sometimes mucus comes out – if I BM, which is rare, a few, thin small balls come out with some blood – blood and mucus when I wipe.
    I don’t know what I have. I thought constipation, intestinal stricture or bowel obstruction (but I don’t have pain with urge anymore), anal stenosis with cramping, but I don’t want to buy all the products for the strictureHeal until I have your opinion..
    Also, can I eat solid food or should I rest bowel with the pureed.. if pureed, for how many days.. do I need wild oregano or castor oil and if so, for how many days.. if i do a bath, for how many days.. are there other things you recommend?
    Thank you!

      I’m afraid that we’re unable to give you an opinion about your specific health situation as we are not health professionals (Jini included) and not qualified to do so.

  • I live in Ontario Canada and am 54 years old. At 36 I had a sphinterectomy. The last 11/2 years I have suffered from chronic constipation and unbelievable pain. I have bowel movements every morning like clockwork but they are extremely painful to pass and are regularly followed about an hour later with spasming that can last 2-7 hours a day. I have had all the routine tests including a recent MRI and anal manometry Today my doctor told me I need surgery as the MRI revealed I have rectal prolapse, rectocele, and chronic spasming in the sphinter muscles which explains why my bowel movrments are so difficult to pass. The anal manometry results have not come back yet but I know for certain I failed the anal balloon test. Sex has also been very painful as of late and my gynocologist says I have vulvogynia. I am currently on magesium citrate, eat a balanxe diet with lots of fibre and water but none of this helps. I am worried that the surgery wil make things even worse for me. Could you please comment on my situation?

  • Hi Jini,

    I was suffering from hemmohoids and anal fissure since about 15 months. I had to underwent rubber band ligations and sphinterectomy and recovering from surgery. These surgeries have resulted in scarring and stenosis. I gone through the literature posted on your website and interested in trying the remedy for strictures/ scarring. I have also read and heard a lot about Serrapeptase enzyme supplement to treat the scarring and strictures. Have you heard about it?

    Thanks,
    AM

  • Hi Jini, So I’ve followed the Stricture Heal protocol now for a bit more than 2 months. Started at 20%, then went to 30% and quickly thereafter continued to the 40% one.

    I’ve generally been quite unsure about the results. I’ve felt things becoming better gradually but when I’ve been of my laxatives I still had rather uneasy BM’s.

    So about a week ago I thought about giving it another go and stopped taking the laxative. The result was that my faeces ever since have been close diarrhea in consistency. A part from that everything’s fine though and generally I feel cured.

    Do you know about this phenomenon? Has other people experienced it? I’ve been more os less constantly on a laxative (Duphalac it’s called – Spain) for about half a year, so that my anal canal wouldn’t suffer more then necessary. Could it be the after effects of this that have to wear off?

    And thank you so much for all the effort you are putting in to helping me and others with these problems. I really appreciate it!

    Lars

  • Hmmm… that’s a really good question Lars and a bit of a puzzle. I can’t actually think of a reason that diarrhea would be the RESULT of stopping laxative use… Perhaps you have just picked up a stomach bug at the same time? Or perhaps your gut flora is unbalanced (it will be if you don’t take Natren probiotics or eats plenty of naturally fermented foods) and you now may have spastic colon, rather than constipation.

    I urge you to pursue holistic healing (if you are not already) and to heal ALL the root causes of constipation – not just the structural one:

    *At the very least, follow the Constipation Remedy at the end. Good luck and keep us posted!

  • Hello Jini & LTYG team,

    Thank you for your courage in tackling these issues and willingness to take the risks that you do. I just recently ordered the hemorrhoid and stricture heal books and DMSO/ALOE/IODINE combo solutions. I had a couple questions though before I jump into the protocol.

    I have noticed that my stools change almost daily based on what I eat. They range from extremely large to pencil shaped, and I haven’t been able to figure out why or how. Regardless they all usually come with some blood from hemorrhoid or stricture after having a BM. Additionally, the color of my stools is not normal and ranges from yellow to other colors based on what I eat, and there is undigested food often in my stools. I also experience some pain in the gallbladder pancreatic area which makes me think it is a bile duct issue. I have had screenings and blood tests done, and they have not revealed anything significant, but based on my observations I believe it is a bile duct issue that I need to resolve as well in addition to my anal hemorrhoids and strictures. I have a few questions as I go forward with my protocol.

    1) I know you are not medical professionals, however, do you have any recommendations for bile duct health/improvements from your experience?
    2) From what I gather, the protocol for hemorrhoids and strictures is generally the same? If I follow the application of the DMSO solution for one, it is intended to heal both, is this correct?
    3) I also see a naturopath who has given me a “bottoms up” balm to apply to the anal area which contains the following: olive oil, beeswax, marshmallow, yarrow, St. Johns wort, butchers broom, which hazel, and vitamin E. (what do you think about using this while I am using your protocol as well?)
    4) Lastly, what do you think about the use of preparation H or wet wipes after having a BM? These wipes are generally much more easier on the rectal region than dry toilet paper, but they contain some ingredients that I’m not sure about applying to the region while on this protocol.

    Thank you so much for your time and I appreciate your generosity,
    Ryan

    1. Hi Ryan,

      To answer your questions:

      1. I’m afraid that we do not have any recommendations for bile duct health or improvement. However, if you are supplementing with bioflavonoids, they are said to stimulate bile production.

      2. DMSO is used in both protocols and they are similar so it’s possible that you will see some progress with both hemorrhoids and rectal stricture.

      3. Jini’s protocols undergo a lot of testing and tweaking before they appear in her books so she does not recommend combining other remedies with her protocols. There’s also no way of knowing how the substances will interact with each other and it can become very difficult to determine what the problem is if you have an adverse reaction.

      4. We don’t have much experience with these but it appears that there are alcohol-free offerings that contain nothing more than aloe, chamomile, and vitamin E on the wipe. Something like that would probably be fine to use.

      Kind regards,
      Justin

  • Hello I am currently on 50% DMSO but I feel There is no improvement. I’m already using the protocol for 2 months and the scar is the same. The only difference is that after I insert it into my rectum I feel a sort of pain that lasts no more than a minute. Should I increase it up to 60% ?

    1. Hi Delia,

      Jini doesn’t recommend exceeding a concentration of 40%. If you’re following Jini’s recommendations on page 21 of the eBook regarding magnesium citrate and using a stool softener or bulking agent in addition to a 50% mix of the Rectal StrictureHeal formula then you may want to consult your physician for other options if you’ve seen no improvement for your particular situation. We’ve received a lot of positive feedback about the protocol but it doesn’t work 100% of the time, unfortunately.

      Kind regards,
      Justin

  • Ok I understand. One last question: since I may be stuck with this stenosis all my life is it ok if I will take every day magnesium citrate and bulking agent in order to have soft BM? Should I stop using these during pregnancy because I plan on having babies inthe near future? Or can they take part of my diet for the rest of my life? Thank you

    1. Hi Delia,

      You shouldn’t have issues with the magnesium citrate but with all stool bulking agents – like psyllium, bentonite, etc, be very careful if you have an intestinal obstruction or stricture. In that case, start with a very small dose (1/2 tsp) and build up very gradually to test for tolerance prevent plugging up your stricture or narrowed section.

      Kind regards,
      Justin

  • Hi, I had hemorrhoid surgery 4 months ago and recently been diagnosed with anal stenosis. I was advised to have another surgery to solve the problem, but I am wary since the healing process of the last one was so painful. Hence here I am wanting to try your anal stricture heal protocol.

    I am currently drinking metamucil and miralax to help with bowel movement. I also drink 2 tbsp olive oil and aloe vera juice as additional ammunition. So far it has helped a lot in reducing the pain though I still feel a slight soreness after BM. So my question is for your protocol, do i still need magnesium citrate, potassium citrat and flax/chia/metacleanse given kiralax and metamucil seems to provide the same function (at least to my understanding).

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Ika,

      If what you’re using is effectively softening up your stools enough so that it won’t interfere with the protocol then there’s no issue with sticking to using those things rather than Jini’s recommendations. We’d love to hear how the protocol works out for you and please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any additional questions along the way!

      Kind regards,

  • Hi LTYG team

    I’ve been writing here a couple of times before. The short story is this: I’ve been using the 20%, 30% and 40% Stricture heal protocol for a little more than 2 months altogether. I stopped talking my laxatives to check out how things were going. Result was the stool kept being “laxative-like” quite fluid and thin. Now about a month has passed and the situation is that my stool is now changing from diarrhea-like in consistency to small cylinder-like balls to more normal ones the width of my index finger.

    As my life pretty much has gone back to normal I don’t really suffer from this – just find it a bit strange… I can cope with my stool not being regular and all but I would like to hear what you think could be going on? I generally eat fairly healthy all though a bit irregularly. Otherwise I’m in a quite good condition health wise.

    1. Hi Lars,

      We’re delighted to hear that you aren’t suffering and that you’ve achieved a degree of normalcy. I wish I had a better answer for you but I’m afraid that we aren’t qualified to speculate on your stool situation as we are not health professionals (Jini included). If you have a concern you should definitely consult with your physician.

    I am Yash Barot. 23 year old male. I am suffering from anal stenosis and prolapse. I am little confused how to identify prolapse?
    I have requested your healing guide for stenosis bt I didn’t received. Please send it.

    And how to apply heat and olive oil to rectal musulse?

  • hi, how can i get this Rectal StrictureHeal Ebook – as im from Romania and i suffer since 2008 of this problem,i inflamated even the pudental nerve,thx a lot

  • Hi Jini,

    I have downloaded your eguide on the rectal strictures and also ordered the dmso+sski. I just had a hemorrhoid surgery using the scalpel about 8 weeks ago. The surgery left me with a scar just a few millimeters away from the anal opening. My CRS has been dilating it, and bowel movement not what I use to have, which is depressing for me.

    Like to know could I just use dmso, sski and saline water?

    Do I need as much as 15 drops, as the strictures is very near the opening of the anus?

    Thanks

    1. Hello Ming,

      Thank you for your interest and questions. We do not have experience on using this formula with saline water so can not comment on if it will work as well. However if you decide to try it with that we would love to hear how it works out for you.
      Also if you are concerned the 15 drops may be too much at once we strongly recommend starting at a smaller amount and work up from there to see how you can handle it.
      Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with or if you have any other questions. Also we would love to hear how it works out for you.

  • ive a similar story except that i have no idea how or when it started. i can go for nearly two weeks without BM, when i do its painful and for the days running up to it im lethargic and in aching pain from my abdo down my legs. ive sat trying to have a BM and nearly passed out with the pain. im on a movicol powder laxative to soften stools and anytime i go, its very thin and sticky. i feel that everything is blocked behind the inner sphincter and theres no give. i simpy dont eat certain foods that can ‘get stuck’. i had a procedure to widen the sphincter, but its not made much, if any difference and was given dilators which i find very painful to use. when i go, i am fine for a few days because i feel like i purely clear my bowel, but anything further up my intestine comes down and im back to square one. i have had 2 sigmoidoscopies, both clear. no haemmoroids/tags. no other medical complications. i work 9-5 in public and simply couldnt see me doing suppositories 2-3 times a day.

    1. Hi Brandon,

      If you haven’t already, you might want to sign up in the blog post above and we’ll send you the Rectal StrictureHeal book for free. The formula is delivered once per day via a dropper and doesn’t use a suppository so it might work well with your particular situation.

  • Dear LTYG,

    I live in Indonesia, male, 42 yeras old and really interested to try your protocol and have received the eBook. I’ve suffered from Stricture colon more than 6 months and I’ve gone through both colonoscopy and CT Scan. The scan confirmed the stricture occurs for the length of 6cm and located only 3cm from rectum ring. The doctors here have recommended me to go through operation, cut the portion of the strcten colon with the risk of damaging the rectum or make a hole on the belly with artificial pipe to release the stool (forget the medical term for this).
    So both options really scares me 🙁

    Please advice which formula I should try and how to order and ship to Indonesia. Really looking forward for your kind feedback as I do not want end up having hole in my stomach.

    Thanks

  • Hi Jini,

    I was having pelvic floor dysfunction in the beginning of the year, then took a Botox injection to the pelvic floor for relief. Then I started taking some stimulant herbs (senna, cascara, aloe) for motility afterwards. They were working well for a few months but I think I need to get off of them since they are causing discomfort, and my stomach is always hurting now. I was wondering if you have any suggestions for someone in my type of situation. I tried an elemental diet earlier but for some reason the liquids just stay in my intestines, and I have urinary problems as well. I am really praying for some help.

    1. Hi Chris,

      We do definitely recommend continuing to consult with a doctor for all of those different conditions going on. But also recommend to be sure to follow your gut in what you feel is best for you with what the doctors recommend. As for Pelvic Floor Dysfunction here is a few suggestions Jini has:
      http://www.listentoyourgut.com/symptoms/23/rectal-spasm-and-levator-ani-syndrome.html

      As well as some suggestions in this ebook:
      http://www.listentoyourgut.com/healing-resources/44/jini-s-healing-guide-natural-treatments-for-rectal-spasm-ebook.html

      I personally have Pelvic floor dysfunction myself and I have found pelvic floor physical therapy, exercise, emotional work, and meditation helpful. Jini definitely suggests to work on emotional work as well in your physical healing.

    I have a 18mth old daughter who is 100% reliant on suppositories. Even for wind or liquid stool (using oxypowder or vitamin c).
    We know she has had guy issues and we are slowly healing these through supplements and homeopathy but nothing has impacted her passing stool on her own. We don’t know where to turn next. Any recomendation?

    Paediatrician
    Biomedicine GP
    Kineasiologist

    They all start down the constipation route but once they understand it is actually that she gets no urge to push (even for wind) they say there is nothing more they can do for us.

  • I am a 60 year old male in good health however, approximately 5 years ago, I has several banding procedures done to treat internal hemroids. This provided some relief but due to poor diet and weight issues, they came back. The doctors then performed a stapled hemmorhroidectomy. Since this time, I have had a burning/aching pain in my anal area. I have had botox injections to treat a diagnosis of Ani Levitor Syndrome. This did not provide relief. I did try your treatment for a couple of weeks and began to worry that it might aggravate the levitor muscles. however, I still have a very tight/small anal canal and constant chafing (due to any exercise) of the anal tissue. I believe this was due to the surgery and how much tissue they removed in addition to the possible levitor muscle spasms. What would you recommend? I am wiling to give your treatments more time if this might help reduce the restriction/tightness of my anal opening.

    Thank you.

    1. Hello Joseph,

      Thank you for your question. Have you seen this post on treatment for Levator Ani Syndrome? http://listentoyourgut.com/symptoms/23/rectal-spasm-and-levator-ani-syndrome.html
      If you haven’t tried those options yet I would start with that. You may also want to look into a cleanse and diet if you feel that may still be a problem and beneficial to you. I recommend researching more on the website about these options by searching about elemental diet, probiotics, and oregano oil. If you are interested in more information on them or have any questions please let us know.

  • Hi Jini,

    The eBook says that Oregano oil can be used in conjunction with the mixture – does it need to be separate or can it be added in without taking away from the benefit?

    1. Hello P,

      Thank you for your inquiry. Jini does not recommend mixing the oregano oil with the StrictureHeal formula. If you decide to do the Wild Oregano Oil Syringe Protocol she then recommends using the StrictureHeal a week after it. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
