thousands of patients who have similar symptoms.
The common character of these nosodes is that they do not ferment the lactose.
They distinguish themselves according to their effects on fermentation on other
Under the action of the bowel nosode the non-lactose fermenting bacilli
begins to mutate into other less harmful group of bacteria and finally disappear
The Pioneers of Bowel Nosodes
Dr. Edward Bach (who also created Bach Flower
remedies) and Dr. Charles Wheeler were the pioneers of the
bowel nosodes. They projected that most of the chronic disease have a strong
relationship with a group of certain non-lactose fermenting bacteria.
Dr. Bach also established that patients who harbor non-lactose
fermenting bacteria, usually have latent Psora in the background. Dr's John and Elizabeth Patterson
who also worked extensively with bowel nosodes, also
concluded that intestinal toxins in chronic disease are very closely related to

Any change in the host
which affects the intestinal mucosa will upset the balance and
will be followed by a change in the habit and the bio-chemistry
of the B. Coli, which may then become pathogenic.
Using bowel nosodes, the intestinal balance is restored and

a large percentage of
non-lactose fermenting bacilli that
are associated with the pathogenic group, such as typhoid and

a person can change the flora of
bacteria, but this is only temporarily.
Dr. Bach has proved this clinically in many cases that after giving bowel nosode
there is change in cultures of the patients intestinal flora from non-lactose to
lactose fermenting bacteria.
He also found that non-lactose fermenting bacteria
were present in healthy individual who were never sick. The reason was that these people’s
constitution is strong and they can withstand such bacteria without developing a

harmless saprophyte and to be non-pathogenic in the healthy bowel. Its
function is to break up into the more simple substances the complex molecules of
the organic combinations, which form the bodies of plants and animals, or of the
complex substances which result from the digestive processes in the intestinal
canal and are excreted.
In nature, where there is balance, there is no disease and
the germ, in this case the B. Coli in the intestinal
tract, performs a useful function. Where the intestinal
mucosa is healthy the B. Coli is non-pathogenic.
Indications for Using Bowel Nosodes

in cases of autoimmune disease, bowel disease, autism, chronic skin diseases

The bowel nosode should be given and selected in the same manner as any other

In a new case, the constitutional remedy should be given before the bowel nosode.
In cases where it is difficult to make the choice among
many possible constitutional remedies, then a bowel nosode may be given.
If the constitutional homeopathic remedy is working well and achieving the desired
result there is no need for a nosode.
If a case stalls and an appropriate bowel nosode is indicated, dosing it may give the necessary
energy for the
progress to continue.
An old case where a patient may be under homoeopathic treatment, but is not
responding to it, the appropriately selected bowel nosode can be given.
