Melt the cocoa butter. Do not allow it
to bubble or burn!
Stir in the powdered herbs a little at
a time. Stop if the mixture becomes too stiff. If the mixture
is too thin, add some turmeric powder. If it is too thick,
add some more coconut butter.
Allow the mixture to cool enough that
you can handle it without burning yourself.
You have two main options:
Wrap each bolus individually (in wax paper)
and put in the refrigerator.
I generally find that I can only make
3-5 boluses before I have to put the finished ones into
the refrigerator. This is good. If the boluses melt into
little puddles on the table where you are working, you
know they will dissolve and disburse in your body! It they
are too stiff, something went wrong and they aren't going
to melt in your body. In the eleven years I have worked
with these, only two people told me the boluses wouldn't
There is enough in herbal powder in the
package we supply to make about 60 boluses, a two-month
supply. Obviously, it depends on the size of the boluses
whether you will end up with 20 or 100!
Most women continue the use for two months.
A few, often those with a long history of candida albicans
or other infections of the reproductive system, continue
for six months. Two or three women told me that itchiness
due to candida increased a bit during the first days of
use. Most women said that the boluses are extremely comfortable
and are actually relaxing and soothing to the body.
It is a lot of fun to make the boluses
if you have some friends over to help. It can be a substitute
for an old-fashioned quilting or canning party.
The Garden Patience blend is Dr. Christopher's
recommendation and comes from the company operated by his
son. It can be steeped as a tea and consumed as a beverage
as well as used as a douche. For best results, use it both
ways, being very careful of the temperature used for douching.
You can also use chamomile tea.
The boluses should be inserted at night
before going to bed. Some women need to use panty liners
to prevent spotting or soiling of bed linens. Douching
can be performed in the morning. Most women tell me that
there is no evidence of the herbs by morning. The body
has therefore absorbed everything!
