Dr. Group recently sat down with Nellie Gonzalez to discuss the benefits of cleansing. Here is a transcript of the interview!
Nellie Gonzalez: Hello and thank you for joining us. We're here today with Dr. Edward Group, founder of the Global Healing Center, to discuss the importance of a healthy colon and the benefits of using Dr. Group's colon cleansing system known as Oxy-Powder®. Hello, Dr. Group, and welcome to the show. I'm so excited. Please tell us a little bit about yourself and about Oxy-Powder®.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Well, thanks for having me on, Nellie. Oxy-Powder® started because of a past history that I have. I've always grown up wanting to help people, and that's the main reason why I became a doctor. I mean, I saw so many people suffering from so many different diseases and ailments. We have practically the whole population over 40 years old suffering from something and the fact of the matter is people are getting sicker and sicker and sicker but not getting better.
So I spent 20 years trying to find out why is this all happening. Supposedly we have the best medical system in the world. What is going on here? Why do we continually see people getting worse instead of getting better?
What amazed me after 20 years of research is I actually found the secret to health. I actually found what causes all these negative health conditions, and, believe it or not, it is the intestines and the colon. That's why most doctors aren't even taught about the intestines and colon in medical school. If they are, they know very little about it.
But how can the colon and the intestines be the number one cause of negative health conditions? Well, the reason why is we are exposed and have been exposed over the last 20, 30, 40, 100 years to a massive amount of chemicals and toxins that are coming into our body that we are not able to eliminate in a timely manner. We have toxins in the air that we breathe right now from all of the industrial chemicals that are going up into the air, all the fossil fuels from the car exhaust, so many things, mold and mildew in the home, pet dander in the home.
We have toxins in the water that we're drinking every single day, most people. Every single city's tap water supply should be concerned about contamination. There's been arsenic found in water. There's been pesticide residue in water. There's been mercury, heavy metals. Prescription drug residue is now being found in water and even radiation.
So you take the air and the water and everybody's different. It doesn't matter. But what I found in my research is all disease and all negative health conditions are caused by too many toxins coming in the body and not enough toxins going out of the body.
Nellie Gonzalez: So when the patients went to you and you started discovering, because, you know, when you go to the doctor and a lot of people do, and they have a variety of different things that can be the same thing. You know, one doctor will tell you one thing. So you went the further step. As opposed to just trying to mask what's going on, the symptoms, you wanted to discover what was causing it, and the intestines are the number one cause because of all the environmental factors.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Exactly, exactly. Well, I started looking at doctor's visits and people were going to the doctor's office and waiting two hours to get in and then only spending seven minutes with the doctor, and the doctor would prescribe them a medication. But none of the doctors were addressing the root cause of the concern on why those individuals were coming in, in the first place.
So when it opened up for me, because I was taught the same thing, if someone comes in with this, prescribe this, or if someone comes in with this, give them this. But I started looking, and breaking down the pharmaceutical compounds and realizing that those aren't doing anything good for the body. They're not fixing anything. It's just covering up the pain or covering up the whatever you have.
So what led me to the secret of the intestines and the colon was looking at all the chemicals and the toxins in the air and the food. And the food is a big one because half of the stuff out there is dead food. It's microwaved, which causes more toxins to develop inside the food. You have genetically modified foods these days. You have white sugar, flour, soy products that increase estrogen levels in females. So you have a major component of toxins able to come in through food, and then you have beverages. People drinking coffee, alcohol, teas, and everybody's being dehydrated and not drinking enough water, which helps eliminate the toxins from the system.
Then you have other toxins, such as radiation from cell phones and cell phone towers. You have harmful organisms, which 90% of the population has harmful organisms. Harmful organisms might be a virus, a bacteria, a worm, anything like that, that lives inside your body and takes away your nutrients from you.
Nellie Gonzalez: Well tell me, how does Oxy-Powder® detoxify the body? How would it help someone to do that?
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Well, when you compile 200,000 toxins from all these things into the system, what happens is the first exposure point to these toxins is the intestines. You have 25 feet of small intestine, and you normally have 10 feet of large intestine, which is called your colon. Most of these toxins get absorbed through the small intestine into your bloodstream, and that's what causes negative health conditions.
So once I realized what causes all these poor health conditions, I was like, "What can we use for somebody to cleanse their intestinal tract, their full intestinal tract safely one to three times a week using something that's not going to harm them?" So I started looking at research done in Germany years ago and in Russia and determined that using oxygen, because we take 30,000 breaths every day anyway, would be the safest thing to use in the intestinal tract to clean everything all the way down and to make a product which is going to be easy enough to where someone only had to take a few capsules at night before they go to bed.
Then what happens is it goes into their system, and you get millions of little oxygen bubbles, which are O1, which is a monatomic oxygen instead of O2, which is standard oxygen. O1 is a reactive form of oxygen, which means it's going to reduce or oxidize or bind to those toxic molecules and flush them out of the system before they become absorbed.
See, most people aren't even going to the bathroom two times a day like they should. If you look at the animals, you see cows having multiple bowel movements. You see birds having multiple bowel movements all day long, hopefully not on you when you're walking around. But then you look at the humans and we've gone from having two bowel movements a day to I've had people that have one bowel movement a month, every four weeks, believe it or not.
Nellie Gonzalez: And all those toxins are just saturating the body, and this is where you're getting all the different effects. I like that you said "capsule" because when I first saw the product and it's Oxy-Powder®, you think it's powder. How easy is it, please tell us, to use and a capsule's brilliant because it's so much easier to take than powder form?
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Well, everybody wants something easy because the pharmaceuticals have been, the doctors give us pills to take all the time. So people are not looking for things that are going to take a lot of time. They're not going to have to mix this concoction here and let it sit for 24 hours. This is how the cleansing products were 10, 15 years ago, and then they would have to hold their nose and drink this thing down, and probably half of them were going to throw it back up.
Initially, when we developed this product, we made it into a powder form. So people would have to mix the powder and water and then drink it, and it kind of had a chalky taste and some people were complaining. So then we decided to use all vegetarian-based capsules, so they're not going to get any chemicals or gelatin like most of the other capsules out there, which contain gelatin, and the gelatin comes from slaughterhouses, which can be contaminated with additional chemicals and pesticides and hormones and stuff like that. So we made it as natural as possible into a capsule formula to where all those individuals have to do is just take a few capsules before they go to bed at night, and while they're laying there, the oxygen is released and is going through all of their intestines.
Nellie Gonzalez: The magic happens.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: The magic happens, and they wake up and you would not believe the energy levels that people have in the morning. We rated people's energy levels on a scale of 0 to 10, and most people have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning. They said their energy levels are around a 2 to 3 out of 10, 10 being maximum energy. Every time they take the Oxy-Powder®, they get up in the morning with at least a 7 or a 8 out of 10 on their energy levels. They pop out of bed in the morning. So it's also because of the oxygen. I mean, if you take in pure oxygen, it's going to do your body a lot of good.
We take 30,000 breaths every single day, but the concern is we've gone from 28% oxygen in the air 50 years ago to about 8% to 15% oxygen in the air. So there's been scientists that actually say another reason why we're dealing with so much disease today is because of the lack of oxygen that we have in the air that keeps depleting and depleting and depleting because of all of the chemicals that we're putting in the air.
Nellie Gonzalez: All right. And so once you take that and the magic happens, like you said, you feel sluggish. A lot of people feel sluggish, and you don't know what causes it. What does cause that bloating, that constipated feel? Those are a lot of factors. You're taking in a lot of not really great oxygen, like you said. So is that what's causing it?
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Well, what causes the bloating and the constipation, number one, is people are eating too fast. They're not chewing their food properly.
Nellie Gonzalez: I should slow down.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: What we should be doing is chewing our food until it's a liquid before we swallow it, and people are running out of the digestive enzymes that they need to break down food. Studies have shown that people are running out of enzymes by the time they're 28 years old. Enzymes are the molecules in your body that actually take and break down all of the food particles into a liquid and break down all the vitamins and the amino acids and all of the good substances in the food and then bring them into the bloodstream so they can be absorbed or utilized by the organs or the tissues or the bones or wherever they need to go.
So people suffering from the bloating and the constipation is just a sign. It's their body telling them that something is out of balance and it needs to be fixed. This is what I try to tell people all time is, like, when you have a headache, that's not your body saying, "Run to the doctor and get some medication." That's your body trying to say, "Something's not right." Please look at your diet because your body will talk to you. It's just that people are not listening to their body and what their body is saying. So when someone has constipation or bloating or gas, they're body is saying, "Hello. Will you please listen to me? Something's wrong." It's your digestive system. So most likely it has to do with the food that you're eating.
What happens is they might have a hamburger with french fries, carbohydrates and proteins and then a milkshake after that or something, and a lot of times that food will sit in the system and the carbohydrates will end up fermenting, turning into alcohols. The fats will turn rancid, and the proteins will turn putrefactant, which means if you don't digest your food rapidly and have your normal bowel movements, then all that food can turn into just a conglomerate of toxic byproducts like a toxic dump site that can lead to poor health conditions.
Nellie Gonzalez: And that also causes being overweight because it's being stored as fat. You're not getting rid of it. So how do people find Oxy-Powder®? This is excellent, excellent.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Well, they can just go to OxyPowder.com and check out my book, The Green Body Cleanse. In that, it goes into detail. It's everything you would ever need to know about diet, exercise, everything you need to keep your body healthy and clean.
See, we focus too much on the outside, and people take a shower every day and clean the outside of their body. But how many times do people take a shower inside their body? How many times do they clean the inside of their body? They don't, and that's the main point that I'm trying to get across to everybody is you don't have to suffer from poor health any more. You don't have to suffer from all these negative health conditions because all you have to do, it's that easy. This is what the doctors hope you never find out about.
Nellie Gonzalez: Yeah, because this could alleviate so many different things.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Exactly.
Nellie Gonzalez: What do you say about the people that say, "Well, you know, once a month I can just get a colon cleansing and I'm fine?" How does that, does it work along with this, or this is a much better route? Or what's the difference?
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Well, you know, you have the colon hydrotherapy devices where they put water up inside your body and rinse everything out, and that's fine. This Oxy-Powder® is an all-in-one. I mean, I don't disagree with colon hydrotherapy. I think it's an effective treatment, but this you can take two or three times a week. Most people are not going to eat a vegan, all raw food diet with live enzymes in it already to where it naturally digests.
See, animals eat live foods. They go pick the nuts and the fruits and everything and the grasses when it's alive and it has everything they need to process it correctly, and so they can digest it and eliminate it. We go eat a bunch of microwaved, dead food, and all kinds of stuff that our body just can't handle.
So the good thing about Oxy-Powder® is that you could go eat a big breakfast, a lunch, and a dinner or go out to a business meeting and eat late at night and have steak or mashed potatoes and a dessert and a bottle of wine. And then, if you come home and you sleep on that big meal, you're going to feel horrible in the morning. You probably won't sleep that good that night.
Nellie Gonzalez: But now I'm going to take a couple of these Oxy-Powder®. This is great. So you wake up, more energy. Your food digests. I mean, this is just a win-win.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: It's a win-win.
Nellie Gonzalez: I can't believe that I . . .
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: We've actually had clinical studies done on this. FDA-approved, clinical studies, Phase I, II and III, we've taken it through to test the safety, toxicity of it. You could go to a drug store and take any over-the-counter pill and if you were to take half of that product, you would probably be in trouble. You can take a handful of aspirin and die.
They called us in the clinical studies to see how safe this would be. They called me and said, "We're up to four bottles a day and haven't noted adverse reactions." I said, "Oh, well, they're not going to need that. All you need is a couple capsules."
Nellie Gonzalez: But just in case you accidentally take a couple more than you should have, you forgot you took them and it'd be fine.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Exactly. I mean, we just want to make sure that something is safe and something that can be taken on a regular basis because that was a good question you had about, "I can just clean my colon once a week or once a month." The average person that knows about natural health cleanses their colon about once every six months, believe it or not. So you still have every, single day during that six months causing damage to your body. With Oxy-Powder®, you can take it two or three times a week.
Nellie Gonzalez: And that's regular maintenance.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: As you keep cleansing all those toxins out of your body, it decreases your chance for those toxins to go in your bloodstream and develop some sort of negative health condition, because we know that health concerns can be caused by things staying in the colon for too long or in the small intestine for too long and leaking through the intestinal walls into the bloodstream.
Nellie Gonzalez: How about if people are suffering from hemorrhoids? Could they take it?
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: The main reason people suffer from hemorrhoids is they have to strain when they're going to the bathroom. The reason they're straining is because they're usually constipated. I hear this all the time, "Well, I'm not constipated. I just drink a cup of coffee every morning." Coffee dehydrates you. You're constipated if you have to drink a cup of coffee in the morning. But hemorrhoids, you can take it with hemorrhoids, because once you start cleaning out the system and once you start having regular bowel movements again, and hopefully changing your diet and eating more healthy and chewing your food . . .
Nellie Gonzalez: Right. And that's why the book is so important and what a gift. It has got all the benefits of health, exercise, what people should be doing to take care of the inside as well as the outside.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Exactly. And the book doesn't just say, "Here's a general diet plan like most books." This tells you exactly what's causing your health concern. What you were saying, talking about earlier is there is no need anymore to go to this doctor for this condition, this doctor for this condition, this doctor, because we found out that all of those poor health conditions are caused by toxins coming in, too many toxins coming in and not enough toxins coming out. That's why we recommend always starting with an intestinal cleanse and keeping your intestines clean on a regular basis.
But also I recommend other body cleansing systems, like cleansing the liver, cleansing the harmful organisms out of your body, cleansing the chemicals and the heavy metals out of your body. But those are also different and separate cleanses. All that is contained in detail in my book, and it's not like, "Don't ever eat meat again," because I go through each category. Where are you getting all these toxins? Let's go through the air. Let's go through the air in your home, and let's go through the air outside, in your office building where you work all day. Let's follow you around for a day in this book and see what you're exposed to. This is why you shouldn't eat white sugar. This is why you shouldn't eat white flour. This is why you should avoid genetically modified foods if possible. But the book is not about just telling you, "Don't do this."
Nellie Gonzalez: Right. "Don't" and "Stop." It's just, "This is how to do it better."
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: And it actually gives you the natural replacements for everything. Here's the easiest way to clean the air quality in your home. Here's the easiest way to make a non-toxic chemical cleaner to clean your kitchen counters with. Here's the best sources for non-toxic cookware, because did you know you're getting aluminum in your body every time you cook or drink out of aluminum cans or use aluminum-based deodorant or antiperspirant. It really opens somebody's eyes to all of these chemicals and toxins that are in their daily environment and then gives them easy solutions on how to keep it clean.
But the colon and the intestines are the main thing . . .
Nellie Gonzalez: Most important for bloating.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: . . . because that's the first exposure point where all the . . .
Nellie Gonzalez: And what woman doesn't want to not feel bloated and constipated, which will put you in a bad mood? Then once all that's flowing and you're feeling great, more energy, plus then your skin will radiate, your hair will be better, your nails will be better because all that really just goes hand-in-hand.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: And what guy wouldn't want that for a woman too?
Nellie Gonzalez: Exactly.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: But you're exactly right, and that's what it does. It helps you to feel good on a regular basis, and it helps get all those toxins out of your system. We have movie stars that use it before they go on the red carpet to get their body in red carpet shape.
Nellie Gonzalez: Oh, there you go, ladies. That right there. So you've got all these pluses. Now you're just feeling really great. Let's go on to, okay, what causes bad body odor and bad breath? So now you're looking great, but if you stink, I don't know.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Well, most people over the age of 40 can have up to 10 to 20 pounds of compacted fecal matter in their intestinal lining at all times, because the 30 feet, if you were to take the intestines out and spread them open, it would be the surface area of a tennis court. That's a lot of surface area.
Nellie Gonzalez: Yeah.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: So even if the tennis court had a small layer of dust and you swept it all up into the middle, you would have a big pile. So when you're suffering from body odor or bad breath, it's all of that compaction that's been lodged in your intestines for probably weeks or months or years that's just degrading and gassing all that stuff back up, and then you're breathing it out. And that's where your bad breath comes in.
So if you have body odor, if you have bad breath, see the skin and the mouth is also a way that you eliminate toxins, which we haven't talked about. Women have five ways to eliminate all these toxins: urination, defecation through bowel movements, respiration (breathing), sweating through the skin, and their menstrual cycles. Men only have four ways to eliminate toxins from the body.
So if you're not, this is another reason why we're seeing an increase in poor health conditions is because people have shut down their elimination routes. Exercise, regular exercise takes care of two elimination routes - respiration and sweating. But we've gone to a sedentary lifestyle with the computers everywhere. Nobody's exercising enough, and so the elimination routes are shut down. People aren't having two to four bowel movements a day. People aren't urinating enough because they're not drinking enough water. Women's menstrual cycles are erratic because of all the hormones in milk and meat and everything else that they're being exposed to and soybeans, which are in everything, which are increasing women's estrogen levels and decreasing their progesterone levels.
Nellie Gonzalez: And what happens when that happens? Because there's a lot of talk about too much estrogen, so what happens with that?
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: What happens is it increases dramatically your chances for poor health. Anything that has to do with a woman's hormone levels, premenstrual syndrome. It can alter the regulation of your menstrual cycle. You can start spotting. You can start having different types of bleeding at different times of the month on your menstrual cycle. All in all, you want a balance between the estrogen and progesterone and not estrogen-dominance. Estrogen-dominance could be extremely serious for women and also men for that matter.
Nellie Gonzalez: So Oxy-Powder® is key to all of this so you'll feel better. Say you take it at night. Is it okay for people to go to work the next day? Are you going to have any concerns with going to the bathroom too much?
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: No. That's a great question. That does happen, and it's best if you start like on a Friday night or something like that just to make sure. You won't have a concern as long as there's a bathroom nearby. People get confused because sometimes they take it, and then they call in and say, "I have diarrhea. I have diarrhea." We tell them it's not diarrhea. If you take all of the oxygen bubbles and the solid, toxic matter, which can be hard but it is definitely a solid, and you then you take the oxygen bubbles and you reduce that solid, it reduces it to a liquid, like water or a gas. So people might have liquid or semi-liquid stools for the first couple days until they figure out what their perfect serving is. It might seem like they have diarrhea and they might have some excess gas, but that's actually a good thing because you know that it's working. You know that all that stuff is being melted away, and some people have seen all kinds of stuff come out in their stools.
Nellie Gonzalez: Yeah. So start on a Friday to be safe. Now, there are other colon cleansers out there. What sets Oxy-Powder® aside from other colon powders or cleansers?
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: Well, most of the other colon cleansing products out there are herbal-based, and they usually contain three specific herbs: senna, Cascara Sagrada, or other individual herbs out there that may, usually psyllium husk, which is a fiber. It's a bulk- forming agent. Now, all of these herbs most likely are going to be coming from China or India. They can be contaminated with toxic substances, but none of those can be used on a regular basis, especially one, two, or three times a week without causing possible harm to the intestinal lining, and it could be long-term, irreversible harm.
Nellie Gonzalez: And you don't want to have that. So what kind of guarantees do you have with Oxy-Powder®?
Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND: We have a 90-day, no question, money back guarantee on Oxy-Powder®. You can try it for 90 days, and if you're not happy and you don't get results, we give you a full refund on it. We have all of the information that you need that you can review. You can learn about it. You can see thousands of testimonials from people using Oxy-Powder® with success. This product has saved so many people from constipation, from suffering, and that's really what we're here to do is to help people.
My whole goal with all the research that I've done to try to find the root cause of health concerns and how to eliminate them, that's what makes me happy, being able to introduce a product that anyone can use. Those individuals can actually get and feel results in one day. I mean, they take it one night, and the next morning they're already feeling better.
Nellie Gonzalez: And they're feeling great. Well, Dr. Group, thank you so much, especially for Oxy-Powder®, all the great value and the great heath benefits that it brings. Thank you so much for being with us today.
