What is Slippery Elm
Slippery elm is the inner bark of Ulmus fulva. Slippery elm works as a mucilaginous coating containing insoluble polysaccharides, allowing resistance to breakdown when exposed to stomach acid and thereby protecting the gastrointestinal lining. A brilliant alternative to antacids and in this article, we will not even take on the negative effects of modern-day antacids. Integrative physicians often recommend slippery elm as a treatment for gastroesophageal reflex disease. The herbal powder can also ease the discomfort of peptic ulcers.
This resistance to stomach acid makes slippery elm a gentle alternative to antacids, H-2 receptor blockers and proton pump inhibitors – remedies that can disrupt the balance of gut bacteria and interfere with the absorption of essential minerals. Also, in cases where helicobacter pylori has not caused the ulcer, slippery elm can help the body heal the lesions – leaky gut is improved as is IBS!
Slippery Elm also helps with easing symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence and straining to move the bowels. Patients suffering from constipation experienced greater bowel regularity.
Eliminating the inflammation linked to inflammatory bowel disease. Slippery elm is also a superoxide scavenger, thus having the potential to heal the auto-immune damage done to the colon.
Slippery Elm in the Imsyser Intestinal Cleanse
With reason we have discussed the value add of but one of the various herbs used in the amazing Imsyser Deep Intestinal Cleanse:
ANY road to true wellness starts with getting rid of the TOXIC road-blocks – toxic waste in our digestive system – this is often at least 95 % of the root cause of most ill-health.
Everything we ingest that our bodies perceive as ‘foreign’ or ‘toxic’ is normally covered with mucous as a defensive reaction by the gut ( part of our Immunity). This could include the many chemicals used in our modern-day food production inclusive of all the preservatives and additives we take in either willingly or unintentionally. And then we are not even touching the really ‘baddies’ such as chronic medications, vaccines or chemical overload from supplements.
This mucous and waste would normally be gently expelled out of the body but unfortunately many of us do not consume enough fibre daily or even drink enough water to assist with this natural process.

This might even start at young ages, especially if poor lifestyles and choices are followed by the parents, so that by the time we’re adults we could be walking around with kilos( anything up to 7kg!!!) of putrid waste in our bodies that we’re not even aware of. Putrid since if this waste does move as with anything that does not move will become so…
Not only are we then battling with waste issues OUT, moving out of the body, but this layer also interferes with good nutrient absorption INTO the body, normally throughout and along this gut lining. This is the reason why unhealthy conditions persist even when we change to healthier diets.
Not only are we achieving a very gentle detox over 7 days but also making sure that the best of the herbs that are needed to ensure healthy gut lining health is maintained for improved functioning – after all, ALL health starts in the gut!
