The Bowel pathway is at the bottom of the drainage pathway pyramid and should be opened up first and foremost. It is a big NO NO to be constipated while on a cleanse. The bowel pathway needs work if you have loose stools. Ragged edges indicate inflammation or dysbiosis. The bowel pathway also needs work if you are constipated as well. You can skip this step if you have loose stools, as binders will help bulk them up. If you do not have a BM 2-3 x/day, you can pick 1-2 of these choices.
Bowel Mover works really well to enhance drainage through the colon. This product has herbs to support motility and gentle pathogen cleansing, preparing the system for deeper clearing and detox. Only stay on this one for 2-3 weeks and take a break before returning.

Dr Jess loves this product for those who are sensitive and need a gentle alternative for constipation, but still need something stronger than JUST magnesium. Colon Rx uses two proven ingredients to improve bowel motility and tonicity in people with occasional constipation. Magnesium hydroxide is a well known ingredient in laxative and antacid formulas, while Triphala is a classic formula in Ayurvedic medicine.
Colon Rx can be used for short periods of time as a fast-acting mild laxative for occasional constipation, or as a daily bowel tonic to help strengthen and tonify the bowels.

Dr. Jess feels Magnesium glycinate is the best form of magnesium for constipation. Glycinate calms the bowels and the mind. You can titrate up to bowel tolerance and then find your sweet spot. Magnesium helps to calm anxiety and lower blood pressure as well as help with insomnia.
Motility PRO is a combination of ginger (Zingiber officinale) and artichoke leaf extract (Cynara cardunculus L.) delivered at a clinically proven dose to restore gastric motility. This distinctive blend of bioactives promotes contractions in the migrating motor complex, helping to restore proper motility, which ensures the steady flow of food particles and bacteria through the small intestine. In addition, it provides support for improved digestion and relief from temporary gas, bloating and associated GI discomfort.
Dr Jess loves Dr Ben Lynch’s magnesium because although it helps with constipation, this combo seems more gentle. Optimal Magnesium contains bioavailable Albion® DiMagnesium Malate and TRAACS® Magnesium Lysinate Glycinate Chelate. Magnesium malate is the combination of magnesium with malic acid, an acid found in vegetables and fruit. The weak bond with magnesium makes this form readily soluble in the body. Malic acid is a key component of several energy production reactions in the body. Highly absorbable and typically well-tolerated, the chelated form of magnesium in this product, magnesium lysinate glycinate, rarely causes adverse gastrointestinal side effects often seen with other forms of magnesium when consumed in higher amounts.*
