Right now, in big cities, small country towns and suburban cul de sacs around the world, someone really needs to move their bowels badly — but they cannot.
Stress, bagels, resentment, pasta, anxiety, cheese, hamburgers, doughnuts, ice cream and unforgiveness combine to form mucoid (“moo-coyed”) plaque — a goopy, rubbery black-green tar that coats the walls of our intestines, diminishes your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and backs up your entire system.
Between 3-4 million Americans suffer from serious constipation.
And many more yo-yo back and forth between constipation and diarrhea on a regular basis.
Moving your bowels – “going number two”, “using the little girls room”, “pinching a log” or “taking a dump” – should be a natural, daily occurrence in the rhythm of life – The same way the sun comes up in the morning and sets in the evening.
Contrary to popular belief, the NUMBER of times you go a day is not a deciding factor in determining if you are constipated.
According to the Mayo Clinic: “It’s normal for someone to have anywhere from 3 bowel movements per week to three bowel movements a day.
If your stools are soft and pass easily and you pass them at least three times per week, you’re not constipated.”
Others believe differently. Dr. Lynn Hardy, N.D., C.N.C., director of the Global College of Natural Medicine says “if you eat one meal a day you should have one bowel movement a day later.
The “transit time” or how long it takes food to travel from the moment you eat it to the moment you excrete it is a determining factor of effects of constipation on your health.
Even with one bowel movement per day, if you eat three meals a day, there are at least two meals’ worth of waste sitting in the colon at any given time.
Regardless of whether you go once a day or once a week, the tell-tale signs of constipation are pretty much the same:
=>hard, painful “pebble” like movements;
=>constant straining and/or painful movements;
=>feeling bloated, gassy, uncomfortable and/or sluggish;
=>Skin eruptions; rashes;
=>halitosis or bad breath;
=>cloudy or discolored sclera (whites of the eyes); and/or
There are many fast, easy and inexpensive cures to “loosen you up” without a trip the local proctologist or taking expensive medication.
1) Salt Flush – Guaranteed to get things moving in 20 minutes or less. The salt flush has been used in fasting regimens for over 50 years. It is totally safe, non-habit forming and very effective.
Recipe: Mix 2 rounded teaspoons of sea salt (do not use Kosher or Iodized table salt) with 1 quart (4 cups) warm water.
Down it as quickly as possible. The salt water is the same gravity as your blood, so it won’t be absorbed into your bloodstream.
Take smaller sips if you gag and/or pinch your nose closed to cut the taste. It won’t win any awards for taste, but you will definitely need to reserve a spot in the nearest bathroom for at least 1 hour after drinking it.
2) Add Fiber – in the form of more fruits and vegetables, brown rice and or beans. Organic Aloe Vera gel (whole leaf) is an excellent, gentle, natural and non-additive laxative.
3) Take A Probiotic – Good bacteria or flora is essential for proper assimilation of vitamins and nutrients from the foods you eat.
Eating yogurt is pretty good, but most of the good bacteria is digested by stomach enzymes long before it reaches your large intestines.
A supplement like an enteric coated capsule protects the good bacteria from stomach acids so it can reach your colon and large intestines.
4) EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) – From fish or seeds not only affect growth, vitality and mental state. But omega 3, 6 and 9 also lubricate your intestinal tract, making it easier to pass stools.
Even walking for just 10 minutes or more a day will begin to move things along nicely.
5) Squat – Until the mid 1850’s people squatted to move their bowels. After an English cabinet maker and plumber devised the modern toilet, squatting quickly became a thing of the past.
Studies prove that humans were not meant to sit on toilets.
It is difficult to achieve a full evacuation. Since the yellow pages has become virtually obsolete, stack a few in front of the toilet (about 6-9 inches high) and rest your feet on top.
6) Drink (More) Water – It can be such a challenge to drink enough water. We’re so busy with trying to get things done during the course of our day, we forget to stop take a sip.
Carrying a refillable, reusable water bottle around with you improves your chances of staying hydrated significantly.
With growing concerns about commercially bottled water and the devastating effects of plastic on landfills and the environment, polycarbonate or stainless steel bottles are great alternatives.
Whatever your preference, keeping water handy at all times makes all the difference.
7) Maintenance Colon Cleansing – The most effective, comprehensive way to naturally cure constipation…and lose weight, boost your energy and vitality, lower stress and look younger all at once.
