To be on the safe side, you may want to continue on the maintenance dose for another month (just to cement your healing). And then for the next month, take the maintenance dose every other day. And thereafter, just take it when you feel you need it: if you eat foods that are hard on your system, or drink alcohol, or are going through some stress, then take MucosaHeal again for a week or so, just to help your digestive system protect and restore itself.
Yes, you can take MucosaHeal along with any prescription medications. Regular licorice is contraindicated for steroids, but MucosaHeal contains only Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice, so it is safe to take with any drug.
If you want to wean off the drugs (always wean gradually and slowly - consult your doctor about this) then you would take the maximum recommended dosage. Otherwise, just follow the dosage instructions according to your symptoms.
MucosaHeal provides excellent demulcent and mucilage activity for the mucosal lining of the small and large intestine. It is a 100% natural, herbal preparation that is ideal for people with Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. If you suffer from any of the following symptoms, then you may benefit from using MucosaHeal: Inflammation, Intestinal bleeding, Pain, Cramping, spasming, Ulceration, Fissures, Fistulas
Usage of MucosaHeal should vary according to the severity of symptoms you're experiencing. Many natural health professionals classify severe symptoms as those including intestinal bleeding and severe inflammation. Moderate symptoms are classed as those including minimal or sporadic intestinal bleeding and moderate inflammation.
MucosaHeal must always be taken on an empty stomach (1/2 hour before meals, or 2 hours after). If you can't swallow pills, you can empty the contents of the capsules into water, or a non-acidic juice like apple or pear, mix well and drink on an empty stomach.
a. To help with severe symptoms:
Take 2 capsules on an empty stomach, 3 times a day. Then, take 3 capsules on an empty stomach right before bed. Ideally, empty your bowels before taking the 3 capsules at night.
b. To help with moderate symptoms:
Take 1 capsule 3 times per day, on an empty stomach. Then, take 3 capsules on an empty stomach right before bed. Ideally, empty your bowels before taking the 3 capsules at night.
Once your major symptoms/concerns have been resolved, or, if your symptoms are mild to begin with, take 2-3 capsules before bed, on an empty stomach. Ideally, empty your bowels before taking the 2-3 capsules at night.
For Children aged 2 and older, it is necessary to adjust the amount ingested in proportion to the child's age. This can be ascertained using a popular formula called Young's Formula:
Age in years
Age + 12= portion of adult dose
e.g.: correct usage for a 6 year old child would be:
6 + 12= 1/3 of adult dose
Consult your health care practitioner for specific guidelines. For children who can't swallow capsules, empty the contents of the capsules into water, or a non-acidic juice like apple or pear, mix well, and drink on an empty stomach.
