Senna acts on the smooth muscles of the colon. It is said to support the colon—support being an interesting word since Senna is listed as a strongly cathartic herb. Used as a cathartic or laxative, Senna’s action usually comes about 10 hours after administration. Senna should be administered on an empty stomach but possibly accompanied by a little Cloves, Ginger, Cinnamon, Coriander, or Fennel to minimize the cramping. Senna should NOT be used where there is bowel inflammation, hemorrhoids, or intestinal bleeding of any sort. Monitor this carefully. THIS IS IMPORTANT! Large doses of Senna can cause severe vomiting and diarrhea and are generally not recommended.
