Thank for contacting us with this question. Yes, There are a couple of herbal formulations that would be more effective than senekot, and would also offer longer term healing. The challenge with senekot is that it is a synthetic compilation of a natural herb called senna. Unfortunately the other additions are all mostly toxic: D&C Yellow No. 10 Aluminum Lake, FD&C Yellow No. 6 Aluminum Lake, lecithin, polyethylene glycol, polyvinyl alcohol, talc, and titanium dioxide.
I would encourage you to look at the full fact sheets on these two herbal combinations, LBS II and BWL BLD (stands for Bowel Build) , then make a choice. Either will help; the LBS might be better to get things moving if constipation is a problem; the BWL BLD can be better if there is alternating constipation and diarrhea. There is also one very similar to LBS, which is in Liquid extract form LB. Nature’s Sunshine has about 20 formulas to help the bowel function better, so keep in touch until we get the best plan for you. Call our office to order any of these!
For any chronic condition, you will want to follow lifestyle recommendations concerning diet, adequate water intake, exercise and emotions, as explained in Lorene Benoit’s book: The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally
