>>Isn't an intestinal stricture caused by lack of fiber as well?<<

There are several causes behind an intestinal stricture (see my File Preview below), but you bring up a good point. We need fiber while we’re eating, but if we’ve been eating the Wrong Food, the best way to clean out our intestines is to stop wasting energy separating the fiber from our food.

Basically, there are 3 Cycles to Food: Consumption, Absorption, and Elimination and when we go on a “Solid Food Vacation,” all of the energy we save in the first 2 Cycles gets redirected to the Elimination Cycle and since many of us still have “old crap” in our pipes, the intestines have plenty of work to do because there is “old stuff” inside there that does NOT belong in there.

In other words, this “old crap” is sort like fiber and it gives our intestines something to do just like it would have to eliminate the fiber.

Here is my File Preview for my file on Colon Stricture:

…File Preview…
• A colon stricture is a narrowing of the passageway of the colon. As a result, waste cannot move properly through the digestive tract and becomes obstructed in front of the stricture. The area of the colon following the stricture may ultimately collapse while the area preceding it begins to enlarge from the accumulated waste. The term “stricture” may be used to describe the natural process of the colon becoming narrow; or it may refer to the portion of the colon that is narrowed.
• Colon strictures may be caused by a variety of factors including:
Tumors blocking waste elimination
Hernias occurring when a portion of the intestine protrudes into another part of the body and then becomes trapped
Intestinal adhesions (bands of fibrous tissue), either congenital or developing after surgery
Colon twisting, referred to as volvulus
Diverticulitis—a condition characterized by bulging pouches called diverticula that become infected or inflamed
Impacted waste
Foreign bodies in the colon, such as from swallowing indigestible objects
• While each of these conditions can lead to colon narrowing, it is possible to simply possess a portion of the colon narrower than usual. In the truest sense, this anatomical anomaly is a colon stricture. Medically speaking, a narrowing of the colon due to a condition or illness is a bowel obstruction, though the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably.
