Silicea Gastro-Intestinal Gel is used to relieve acute or chronic gastrointestinal problems. Ultrafine (colloidal) silicic acid is the active ingredient in Silicea Gastro-Intestinal Gel, a compound of the mineral silicon (Si) combined with oxygen and water. What makes silicic acid gel so special is its exceptional ability to bind pathogens and their toxins in the gastrointestinal tract by means of a purely physical process, and these are then excreted naturally by the colon.
Symptoms are relieved and regeneration of the disturbed gastrointestinal tract is supported. In addition to pathogens, silicic acid gel also binds gases and can therefore reduce troublesome bloating and flatulence.
For the relief of acute gastrointestinal symptoms associated with stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, bloating and diarrhoea, silicea helps to bind the responsible pathogens.
We recommend longer term use of up to 6 weeks for individuals with chronic gastrointestinal problems such as nausea, bloating, flatulence, stomach cramps, diarrhoea, vomiting or heartburn. For acute symptoms, children and adults should take 2 measuring spoons (15 ml measure) mixed with water or tea, 3 to 5 times a day between meals and if necessary, immediately before bedtime.
Treatment can also be continued for several days after the acute symptoms have eased at the following dose: 1 measuring spoon (15 ml) three times a day. In the case of severe pain, if a high fever is present, or if the treatment has not proved effective after three days, please see your doctor. For chronic symptoms, adults should take 1 measuring spoon (15 ml) mixed with water or tea on an empty stomach or between meals. For chronic problems, we recommend a course of treatment lasting up to 6 weeks and symptoms should begin to improve after 3 weeks of treatment. Silicea Gastro-Intestinal Gel is a medical device made purely from minerals and is extremely well tolerated.
In cases of diarrhoea, it is important that lost fluids are also replaced by drinking sufficient water. For children in particular, it is vital that fluids are replaced immediately. Please do not take any regular medication prescribed for you at the same time as Silicea Gastro-Intestinal Gel, and check with your doctor, as the action of Silicea Gastro-Intestinal Gel may interact with your medication. For longer term use, make sure that adequate fluids are consumed and that you eat a balanced diet which is rich in essential nutrients and vitamins. Also suitable for children.
