Colon Healing Mucous Rebuilder

By Joanne Hay

Most know that colon health, in fact, all health relies heavily on balanced bowel bacterial activity. The bacteria in your bowels outnumber the cells in your body by a factor of 10 to one: 100 trillion, about 6 cups of bacteria, line your intestinal tract. At least that’s the way we’re made.

There are many ways we can interfere with bowel bacteria production and function. Antibiotics, every one knows about but other factors are heavy metal and pesticide toxicity, electro-magnetic radiation, alcohol, sugar and caffeine addiction to name a few.

Here is a recipe for rebuilding bacteria and nourishing the mucous membrane of the bowel lining. Its delicious.

You’ll need:

  • 250gms butter, raw is best.
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (virgin is best)
  • 12 capsules of colostrum or equivalent in powder such as 1/2 to 1 tspn Probioplex (Metagenics brand)
  • 12 capsules of Pro-Biotic, or equivalent of freindly bacteria such as 1/2 of 1 tspn of lactobacilis powder
  • 1 tablespoon raw unfiltered/unheated honey.

Mix butter and olive oil/coconut oil in blender until smooth. Add friendly bacteria and colostrum (open caps). Add honey. Blend again.

Eat a tablespoon every day for three days and just 1 teaspoon from then on. If this makes you feel nauseas or headachey, it means your liver needs to catch up with this much fat consumption. Sip some bitter herbs like Swedish Bitters straight away and the queasy feeling should subside.

Keep it in the fridge and never heat the mixture. It’s a great addition to smoothies.

  1. Joanne, will the coconut oil blend straight from the fridge or does it need to soften first?

  2. No Kate, you need to add the coconut in it’s liquid form. BTW I’ve been told you don’t need to keep coconut oil in the fridge unless your keeping it for years. The polyunsaturates are pretty stable because of the high levels of Vitamin E. Has anyone got any more information about this?

  3. I’ve been eating this butter mix for a few months and I have had great results with my body healing from Colitis. I have recovered within 3=4 months simply by eating great food, without any medication . I will continue to eat the butter mix as my body likes it so much, it is delicious and I’m feeling so good.

  4. Well this increase cholesterol with the butter?

  5. Laurie, Cholesterol is yet another very misunderstood nutrient (yes nutrient not poison) Please read Chris Master-John’s work
    Uffe Ravnskov’s work on Cholesterol.

  6. Hi Johanne, could the butter be from soya? or it need to be from animal source?
    Thank you

  7. Pris, Soy oil is not food. It has never been used as food by the cultures who grew soy beans. It requires toxic hexanes and high temperatures, bleaching and deodorising to extract from the bean. Please read about the bastardisation of this humble bean in Sally Fallon’s article, The Ploy of Soy. You will find which soy foods are traditional and which are Nourishing only to the bank balances of modern food manufacturers.
    Butter is by far superior a food. It is actually a superfood. The link on the word butter, above in the ingredients list will tell you why butter is better. Here’s the link again. This article will tell you some of the reasons butter is used in this recipe eg:
    # Butyric Acid - protective agains colorectal cancers and various inflammatory bowel diseases, nourishes the cells of the small and large intestine.
    # Short and Medium Chained Fatty Acids - have antimicrobial, antitumor and immune system supporting properies. These fats absorbed directly from the small intestine to the liver, where they can be used for quick. Quicker than sugar with no crash. Lauric Acid, one of these fats, can be also found in coconut oil and is very useful in dealing with candida.
    # Trace Minerals - manganese, zinc, chromium and iodine - to prevent goiter.

    This recipe feeds good bacteria. Butter is one of the most important ingredients for this function. It actually feeds you bowel flora.

    Pris, prove it to yourself. Put some of the soy margarine out in the garden, put some butter beside it. Watch as all the local critters flock to the butter to eat it. I guarantee, they’ll leave the margarine alone. Even mould won’t grow on margarine. You’ll ask yourself, “how would margarine feed my bowel bacteria, much less my body?”

  8. Hi Joanne
    Where do you get raw butter in Sydney,Australia? Any contacts to join a group? This recipe is great but inability to find the basic ingredient really makes it impossible to try.

  9. Joanne,

    I’m wondering if this recipe would be useful for healing bacterial imbalances that are responsible for “Leaking Gut”. If so, about how long would you guess it would take to re-balance the gut flora? I am really interested in trying out this recipe. Is it that much better to use the raw butter, or would it be okay to use pasture butter from grass-fed cows (I use the Organic Valley Pasture Butter)? Also, any suggestions for the probiotics, as far as how many billion probiotics should be in this recipe? I have some probiotics that only have 1-5 billion per serving, however I recently started using the Metagenics UltraFlora IB, which has 60 billion per capsule. And as far as the Probioplex, does it matter whether it’s the regular or the Intensive Care formula (with the prebiotics)? Any suggestions for this would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
