Take 1-2 capsules with 8 oz of water or juice followed by an additional 8 oz glass of water, before bed and/or upon rising.
An additional 1-2 capsules may be taken after eating, if desired. Capsules may also be opened and contents mixed with water or juice. If minor bloating or gas occurs, try temporarily decreasing amount. It is best to drink at least 6 to 8 additional glasses of water throughout the day to facilitate healthy intestinal function.* Keep Dr. Wilson’s Squeaky Clean refrigerated after you open it.
Dr. Wilson’s Squeaky Clean is not habit-forming, does not create dependency and can be taken daily to help maintain optimal intestinal health, or occasionally as needed, or during fasting.* This formula works gently with the natural processes of elimination, and evacuations may not occur until 24-72 hours after first taking it.* As a result, some people may experience a temporary feeling of fullness. When the intestines are detoxifying it is common for eliminations to contain putrefactive strings, solid particles and ropey mucus strands. By effectively promoting elimination of intestinal debris and toxins, Dr. Wilson’s Squeaky Clean supports the ability of Dr. Wilson’s Inner Healing to support healthy stomach and intestinal linings.* It may also be taken with Dr. Wilson’s Body-Guard during times when supplemental, temporary intestinal immune support is desired.*

Stress and Digestion
Stress triggers multiple changes in your digestive system with the overall effect of slowing it down. As your body shifts energy and resources into the “fight or flight” stress response, maintenance activities like digestion are put on the back burner. It makes sense if you consider that when you hear footsteps behind you in a dark alley at night, you would probably rather have your running muscles fueled up than your pizza digested in that moment.
This redistribution of energy and resources in your body works well for short-term stresses in which digestion can quickly return to normal once the stress has passed. However, prolonged or chronic stress can mess up your digestive system in a variety of ways related to the effect over time of the many changes stress produces.
Among other things, stress reduces secretions of saliva and the protective mucus that coats your digestive tract; decreases the quality of digestive juices like stomach acid and enzymes that break down proteins, carbohydrates and fats; disrupts muscle contractions, creating cramping, diarrhea or constipation; slows stomach motility and peristalsis, allowing food and toxins to remain longer in your system; shunts blood away from your digestive tract, reducing nutrient absorption; alters the bacterial balance in your gut, potentially allowing harmful bacteria to multiply; increases gut permeability, creating an environment that allows more toxins and allergens to be absorbed into your body; and boosts proinflammatory immune activity along your digestive tract.
Just from this list you can see why a stressful life likely includes some digestive problems. To make matters worse, it is easy to disregard healthy habits when stressed. Routinely working through lunch or eating on the run does not give your relaxation response a chance to even become activated! If your adrenals fatigue from prolonged stress, digestion can suffer at the same time that food cravings increase because of low blood sugar, and digestive tract inflammation flares from the combined effects of slower digestion and decreased anti-inflammatory activity by cortisol.
Managing your stress, eating regular meals consisting primarily of whole foods, relaxing while you eat, getting enough fiber, drinking enough water and supporting healthy microbial balance in your gut can help your digestive system function optimally.
