Robert Gray Instructions
How the program works
Start the Robert Gray Intestinal Cleansing Program™ at the Initial Test Level (see chart below): Take 2 level teaspoons of Intestinal Bulking Agent™ (and no Intestinal Cleansing Formula™) 2 times per day (for example 1 dose in the morning and 1 dose in the evening). Mix these 2 level teaspoons of Intestinal Bulking Agent with 8 ounces (¼ litre) of liquid (fresh, organic apple juice, tomato juice, fresh vegetable juice or purified or distilled water* is best – do not use lemon or citrus juices).
Drink directly afterwards another 8 ounces of liquid. Stay at least 3 days on this Initial Test Level. If you feel good on this Initial Test Level change to level E subsequently and continue from there as shown on the chart. If you don’t feel comfortable with the Initial Test Level, discontinue and wait 3 days. Then restart the programme at Level A and progress through levels B, C, D, and E. Go on as directed in the chart.
Special Formula Lactobacteria
Lactobacteria are antagonistic to parasitic organisms, such as candida. When lactobacteria are increased rapidly, they begin to kill the candida. If the candida infestation is severe, candida may be killed so rapidly that the well known candida “die-off” reactions occur. These may take the form of headaches, nausea, constipation, gas, mucus, discharge, and other symptoms experienced by persons with candida.
If you have severe candida and experience possible die-off reactions using the Intestinal Bulking Agent™, then switch to the Special Formula Bulking Agent™ instead. After 6 or 8 weeks of using the Special Formula Bulking Agent™, start using a mixture which is 10% to 25% Bulking Agent™ and the rest Special Formula Bulking Agent™. Then, every few days, increase the proportion a little each time but not faster than you can easily tolerate until you are using only Intestinal Bulking Agent II and no Special Formula.
While on Level E, F, G etc. always take the Intestinal Cleansing Formula™ immediately after taking the Bulking Agent™.
Always begin at the Initial Test Level. This applies also if your diet has always been excellent before, if you have done other programs or if you have paused the Robert Gray Intestinal Cleansing Program™.
Dry Skin Brushing
Using a dry vegetable bristle brush, work from the limbs toward the colon. The lymphatic system is stimulated and the skin clears and becomes revitalised and fresh.
Control your progress from level to level by noting the frequency and quantity of your bowel movement. If you are on too low a dosage level, these movements will be similar to those which you normally experienced prior to starting the program. As you progress to higher dosage levels, the frequency and quantity of your bowel movements will increase.
However, if you go too high a dosage level prematurely, they will begin to decrease again. Please note, that given days in the above chart are minimum days (!) which means that as long as you have an increase in frequency of bowel movement or quantity of stool from your normal pattern, you stay on the level. It is not necessary to reach the highest level. Most of the people end the three month cleanse lower than level “I”.
During the first weeks of the program, you will know that it is working from one or more of the following signs:
– an increase in quantity or frequency of your bowel movement – a different or stronger odour of your bowel movements that is characteristic of material that has been inside for a long time – the presence of irregular shapes in your bowel movements
Then after you take the Intestinal Cleansing Formula™ for a few weeks, you may notice darker colours and possibly some parasites in your bowel movements, which are a further sign of accumulated waste material leaving your body.
Stay on the program until your intestines have been fully cleansed. You should then notice
– no more dark colours in your bowel movements – their shape should be smooth and cylindrical – their frequency will decline towards whatever was normal when you started the program
This process takes about three months for the average person
You should not take the intestinal cleansing products for more than five months in a row. You should then stop for at least 5 months. Afterwards you should continue at intervals of 2 months program and 4 months pause for the next 2 years. Thereafter do a 2 – 4 week program every half year.
When concluding the program, stop the Intestinal Cleansing Formula tablets first, and then gradually phase over from the Intestinal Bulking Agent to the Lactobacteria Food™ over the next 3 days.
Once you complete the intestinal cleansing program, take Lactobacteria Food™ daily to maintain a healthy population of lactobacteria in the intestinal tract. Take 2 level teaspoons of this product 3 times per day with meals for 5 days.
While you can use the Robert Gray Intestinal Cleansing Program™ with any type of diet, foods which are non-mucoid-forming will increase its benefits. These are mainly vegetables, fruits, sprouts and millet. Kelp as a nutritional supplement is recommended. However, if you would have to make substantial changes in your eating habits to achieve this diet, you should evolve your diet gradually rather than change it all at once. For the most part, you may take whatever nutritional supplements you desire along with our products. However, you will counteract the product’s activity for increasing the lactobacteria in the intestinal tract by taking vitamin A from fish liver oil, the succinate form of vitamin E, aloe vera, or most antibiotics. But the beta carotene form of vitamin A and the acetate form of vitamin E may be taken without this effect.
Do not perform this Intestinal Cleansing Program during pregnancy or if you have any form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Also discontinue the program immediately if you experience more than minor discomfort at any time. This Intestinal Cleansing Program is not intended as a treatment for any disease or condition. Consult a licensed health care practitioner of your choice if you need guidance of any particular health care problem.
Robert Gray Program - Frequently Asked Questions
Question: I’m having constipation on this program. Why? What should I do?
Answer: Any vitamins with succinate, fish liver oil, antibiotics, or aloe vera taken internally will all nullify the effects of our products and may result in constipation. You may either stop taking these products and see if your condition improves or wait until you are off of these products before you begin our cleansing program.
Another possibility is that you are having a cleansing reaction. Constipation is one of the most common symptoms of a cleansing reaction. You should go back to the previous level and stay there twice as many days as you did the first time at that level. If you go back to the previous level a 3rd time, stay on it 3 times as many days as you did the first time at that level. If you are having constipation at the Initial Test, then you need to stop for 3 days, and then start at level A.
Question: I have Candida, will this program help me?
Answer: Candida is a systemic yeast condition. This program is meant only to help clean your colon. We make no guarantees that this program will help Candida or any other disease.
Question: I have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Can I use this program?
Answer: Yes. Most people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome can minimise their symptoms while on the cleanse by doing it over the 5 month long period, which is described in our literature. Please note that IBS is sometimes used for Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome, which is a different condition. Persons with Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome must not use our product until that condition has been completely cleared up.
Question: Do I need to use the skin brush? What is skin brushing good for?
Answer: Yes, it’s part of the over-all detoxification process for the colon. Skin Brushing helps clean the lymph, which is part of the detoxification of the colon in our program.
Question: What kind of diet should I eat while on this program?
Answer: What ever feels safe and comfortable for you. Fasting does not help and is not a requirement to do this cleanse. You do not have to give up meat in order to do this program.
Question: I’m pregnant, can I do this program?
Answer: NO. Please wait till you have given birth AND finished breast feeding. We do not know the effects of the program on the unborn and the unweaned.
Question: I have been taking your products for a while, and my stomach (abdomen) is swelling up. What’s happening?
Answer: Psyllium husk has a tendency to cause this bloating because it helps soften the mucoid matter with water and causes it to swell up. As you complete the program this swelling will go down. If you are having some discomfort or pain with this swelling you will note that this too will pass as you near completing the program. You may wish to proceed with the program a little slower, giving your body time to expand with the swelling. Sometimes going back to a previous level and staying there twice as long before going to the next level is helpful. Of course if you do not feel safe and comfortable, contact your physician and stop the program if desired.
Question: I’m having a lot of gas. What should I do?
Answer: Annoying burping or flatulence is usually due to a “die-off reaction”caused by toxins breaking down faster than body can eliminate them. You may choose to stay at your current level, or try going back a level and stay there twice as long before going to the next level. Doing this may help decrease the gas problem. If you are experiencing painful burping or flatulence, go back to the previous level and stay there twice as long before proceeding in the program. You could be experiencing a severe die-off reaction. If the problem doesn’t get better in 48 hours, you may want to stop the program at this time, for the sake of comfort. Painful gas is not a typical cleansing reaction, and you may want to consult your physician to see if you have an allergy.
Question: When is the best time to take the products?
Answer: One hour before or after eating with a minimum of three hours between doses.
Question: What is the difference between IBA-II and SFBA?
Answer: The IBA-II has onion powder and spirulina, which feeds the lactobacteria a little better and lends a slightly more aggressive cleansing effect. If you are not allergic to onions or spirulina and do not have Candida, this is the bulking agent most people use.
Question: I have Candida, (or just started with the SFBA) and I want to know when to start using IBA2?
Answer: After being on the program for 6 weeks, you slowly incorporate the IBA-II, gradually reducing the amount of SFBA over a period of time until you are totally on IBA-II.
Question: On the table for Recommended Dosage, the Minimum Days for Level I is not stated. How many days am I supposed to stay on Level I?
Answer: We suggest that you stay on Level I for a minimum of 21 days. If at the end of that time you are still passing ropey mucoid strands, you may stay longer at this level provided that the total amount of time on the program does not exceed 5 months or, if you have completed the program within the previous 36 months, then the total amount of time on the program should not exceed 3 months.
Question: It’s been more than 36 months since I completed the program. If I had to stay on it for five months, would I develop homeostasis (the body becomes used to the products and they loose their effectiveness)?
Answer: Homeostasis is only a problem if you exceed the recommended time of 5 months usage every three years or 3 month usage within 12 months.
Question: Can I take the bulking agent (or Lactobacteria Food) with plain water?
Answer: Yes. The juice is suggested to help mask the strong flavor of the bulking agent and Lactobacteria Food.
Question: Do I have to use fluid in order to take the bulking agent (or LF)? Can I just sprinkle it on a salad?
Answer: No. Failure to take sufficient liguid with the products may result in intestinal blockage of constipation. Psyllium is a primary component of our products and absorbs a great deal of fluid. If you do not ingest a sufficient amount of fluid, the moisture from your system will be absorbed by the psyllium causing severe problems. This is one of the prime reasons we do not distribute our products in capsule form.
Question: I put the IBA-II in tomato juice and it turned it an ugly color. Is something wrong?
Answer: Spriulina, which is in the IBA-II, turns the juice a funny color, but there is nothing wrong with the dosage.
Question: I have severe Candida, and could not do your program. Is there anything I could do that will help me do your program?
Answer: There isn’t anything that we know of that is a sure-fire answer, but sometimes people with Candida have tried to rebuild their lactobacteria. We have a formula that Robert Gray designed to help feed the lactobacteria. If you find that you are unable to take our Lactobacteria Food, then try to make and drink Cabbage Rejuvulac for 6 to 12 months. If you notice an improvement in your condition at that time, then you may be able to do our program.
Question: I’m on level F. If I go to level G and can’t do it, is there any other way to do this than going back to level F for 28 days?
Answer: No. But if after 28 days you still can’t do level G, then you may want to try to take the same dosage three times a day instead of four. We suggest that you stay at the three-times-a-day level for 14 days.
Question: I don’t have time to take the program 4 times a day. Can I take double the dosage twice a day?
Answer: In most cases the answer is no. You may wish to try that approach, but you may wind up with a cleansing reaction, like constipation, which would require you to go back and repeat a level and stay there twice as long. Since the program was designed at that point to be taken 4 times a day, that’s what should be done.
Question: Can this program cause fatigue?
Answer: No. If you are experiencing fatigue, you should consult your physician.
Question: If I stop this program while in the middle of the cleanse, am I in any danger?
Answer: No. Whatever has been passed out of the body is the only thing that was loose enough to come out. Any other left over material that may be loose will pass. Anything that has not, or will not, pass when you stop the program will not be “floating around” to cause further damage, or disorder, than you were experiencing before starting this program.
Question: If I have to stop the program, can I restart where I left off?
Answer: If no more than 3 days have passed, then you may restart at the previous level. For example, if you are at G and must stop, then you go back to level F for the minimum number of days. If you are off of the program more than six days, you must to go back and start at the Initial Test Level.
Robert Gray Testimonials
I am today on my 115 day of the Robert Gray Program and still passing large amounts of “old intestinal material”. I am on level H and daily still amazed at the results! J.H.
I took the step and had an enema, and it was great! it does not hurt, smell, itch. It is not embarrassing: it’s a release, helps wonderful with flu, etc. You feel great!. DS, London
I have already done a lot of cleansing with activated oxygen products and lost a lot of weight. Also, I’ve used Herbal blends from the USA.
However, within a few days of starting your cleanse I was passing more waste including worms and parasites, hundreds of small white ones, the size of a small grain of rice. Also larger ones, maybe the size of half oa peanut. Also small red strings which look like worms. God knows where they cam from! I can hardly believe how much poison I’ve collected over the last 47 years but needless to say I can’t wait to get rid of it all!. Regards, R.S Croydon
I am writing to let you know how successful I found your Robert Gray Cleansing Program. I am 36 years of age, slim with low body fat, strict vegetarian and train 6 days a week at a high level. I have adopted a wheat-free, non-dairy diet and try to eat organic fruit/veg where possible. I have suffered from chronic constipation and severe bloating. I have been though the usual medical examinations for the past 3 years, 3 x rays and 4 colonoscopies, but all is fine and the medical professin put my problems down to IBS!!. I started the colon cleansing program in June and completed the program in September. After I got through the first 6 weeks I found an amazing improvement in my bowel habits. This gave me added energy and a feeling of a flat and empty stomach. Bloating, whilst on this program was an occassional problem. I was amazed at the achievement that The Robert Gray Program brought. Thanks again! LQG – Belfast
Having completed the Robert Gray Programme I feel I must take this opportunity to thank you for your help and guidance through the program and also to give the highest praise to this wonderful product that you sell. I feel absolutely on top of the world, I feel like a different person, my skin is much clearer, my stomach is much flatter and I cannot believe you can feel so good while such a change is happening to your body. This product does everything it says it will, and I urge anyone and everyone to give it a go. Thanking you once again, J.W, Castleford
“I have had health problems and poor elimination all my life. Now I’m on your program of colon-cleansing. This is the most perfect and thorough program I’ve seen yet. I am getting good results. I have been on it for one month and plan to go another month. There is nothing unpleasant or harsh about it and I want to recommend it to others. I’ve had psoriasis for 30 years and it is disappearing already.” N.S.B, Windsor
“Almost as soon as I started on this program there was a sense of well-being – of just feeling better all over. I can’t remember ever feeling this good.” M.F, Reg. Healthologist
“I have just begun the colon cleansing program as outlined in The Colon Health Handbook and I am excited by the early results. Finally, an easy-to-follow program that get results! Thank you for all of the energy that you put into developing the program.” J.M.M.
“Recently I ordered and read, very carefully, The Colon Health Handbook. It described my problems to a tee. I was very sceptical, because I have tried everything I have ever heard of, and that’s a lot. I am 62 years old and I can’t remember ever having a natural, normal bowel movement. When I read that book, I knew what my problem was, and the herb cleansing program was worth a try. It is like a miracle. In just one week I feel like a new person. I have a huge bowel-movement three times a day. I thank god every hour on the hour for sending that book to me, for showing me the right way to go. No one will ever know the pain and illness I have gone through because of my inactive and impacted colon. I have never known what a good health is like, but I will know now, thank god. And thank you.” H.H.
