Is Oxy-Powder® habit forming?
The bowel will not become dependent on Oxy-Powder® unless you have had previous bowel surgery, bowel muscle dysfunction, or permanently damaged bowels resulting from Hirschsprung’s disease. With Hirschsprung’s disease, the nerves going to the bowel have been permanently damaged or destroyed. It is a very common disease affecting millions of people. However, conventional doctors do not routinely diagnose it.
We believe permanent damage to nerves within the bowel can be caused by:
- Chronic constipation
- Lack of exercise
- Poor diet
In some cases, it might seem Oxy-Powder® is habit forming but we believe this is because the individual already has a pre-existing, undiagnosed bowel dysfunction. †
Can I take Oxy-Powder® everyday?
Oxy-Powder® is safe to use every day, although we recommend taking the product every other day. †
What research has been done to prove Oxy-Powder® safe for continuous use?
Oxy-Powder® will NOT cause bowel dependence, but if a pre-existing bowel dysfunction is present then it may seem as though Oxy-Powder® is continually needed. What is really happening is the Oxy-Powder® is actually helping the bowel to do a job which it has previously been unable to do. This should not be termed as dependence but actually giving needed help to the intestinal system to rid itself of harmful toxins and compaction, thereby reducing the load that the already dysfunctional intestinal tract has to handle.
Some people have been on Oxy-Powder® continuously for 10 years or more and they are very healthy. Chronic constipation can have many causes and the damage it causes can be hard to repair. A permanently damaged bowel is called Hirschsprung’s disease – which means the nerves going to the bowel have been permanently damaged or destroyed. Although conventional doctors do not diagnose it, Hirschsprung’s disease is a very common disease affecting millions of people.
Other causes of nerve damage and constipation in the bowel include:
- Iron supplements
- Low Thyroid hormones
- Kidney malfunction
- Cough syrup
- Heart medication
- Calcium carbonate supplements
Oxy-Powder® can be used continually if needed. †
Why am I not having bowel movements on the days that I am not taking Oxy-Powder®?
The bowel muscle is like any other muscle in the body and needs to be exercised. This happens through the body recognizing the urge to eliminate. When you are constipated your body is not recognizing that urge.This will allow, with time, the elimination of fecal matter on the days you are not taking Oxy-Powder®. We want to not only help you with your constipation issues but also help you learn to eliminate on your own. Again, keep in mind this will be different with those individuals already experiencing bowel disorders. †
Can I take Oxy-Powder® while using prescription medications?
As far as we know there are no contraindications when taking Oxy-Powder® with prescription meds as long as the Oxy Powder is taken 6 hours before or 6 hours after the medicine. Still, it’s always best to check with your health care professional before adding any supplement to your regimen. †
I am experiencing loose stools and am quite concerned. Is this diarrhea?
Oxy-Powder® will cause watery, gaseous stools. This is not clinical diarrhea; it’s the byproduct of oxidation. The causes of diarrhea are usually temporary problems such as an infection or virus, or chronic problems such as an intestinal disease. A few of the more common causes of diarrhea are:
- Bacterial infections transmitted through contaminated water or food including Campylobacter, Salmonella, Shigella, Escherichia coli, viral infections, rotovirus, Norwalk virus, cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex virus, and viral hepatitis
- Lactose intolerance
- Parasites such as Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica, and Cryptosporidium
- Reactions to prescription medications, such as antibiotics and blood pressure medications
- Intestinal diseases, like inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome and celiac disease
Remember Oxy-Powder® is turning solids into a liquid or gas. To assist the cleansing process, it’s advised to drink half of your body weight in ounces of purified water daily while taking Oxy-Powder® even though there has never been a documented case of dehydration or electrolyte imbalance. To figure out your body weight in ounces, please divide your body weight in half. (For example, if you weigh 140lbs. then you should drink 70 ounces of water.) †
Should I be concerned with dehydration while using Oxy-Powder®
To our knowledge there has never been a case of dehydration or electrolyte deficiency while using Oxy-Powder®. We recommend drinking half of your body weight in ounces of purified water daily while taking Oxy-Powder® to help flush the oxidized toxins from the bowel. It might seem like you have diarrhea but this is just the hard matter which has been reduced to a liquid form. †
What symptoms might I experience while taking Oxy-Powder®?
You may experience watery, gaseous stools, noisy bowel sounds, or some temporary cramping due to gas build-up while taking Oxy-Powder®. If you experience cramping for longer than two days then switch to the daily schedule; take two capsules 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner. You may increase or decrease the dosage as necessary. Other side-effects may include mild headaches or temporary joint pain. All will resolve as soon as the toxins are expelled from the body. If you are experiencing bouts of constipation, bloating or gas then you may also be suffering from the symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome, an overgrowth of harmful organisms.
Oxy-Powder® releases monatomic oxygen, which has been shown in lab tests to kill forms of fungus, yeast and bacteria. The oxidation of the compacted toxic material along with the deaths of harmful organisms can be absorbed back into the bloodstream through tiny holes (resulting from years of damage) in the intestinal lining.
This flushing of toxins may cause you to experience temporary cramping, draining sinuses, fatigue, skin eruptions and insomnia. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, give Oxy-Powder® at least thirty days to help balance your intestinal system. †
Can I use Oxy-Powder® while pregnant or nursing?
Please do not use Oxy-Powder® during the first trimester. After the first trimester, please consult with your health care practitioner before using Oxy-Powder® during pregnancy or while nursing. Most doctors feel comfortable recommending Oxy-Powder® to their pregnant and nursing patients, but in a reduced dosage they will help you determine.
Generally, the recommended dose is half of the suggested dose.In some cases, taking Oxy-Powder® while breastfeeding may have caused the baby’s stool to become loose, if this happens, the mother should reduce her dosage until the baby’s stool return to normal. †
Is Oxy-Powder® safe for children?
Parents should consult their physician regarding use of any dietary supplement by their children.
