Constipation is just one of those things people don’t want to really talk about, isn’t it?
No one wants to talk in public about the terrible trouble they’re having eliminating poop from their bowels.
First, I want to say that I hold NO judgement! I suffered from chronic constipation symptoms for YEARS and tried everything the doctors and medical professionals advised to get rid of them… unfortunately, none of it worked. The only thing that worked was when I decided that I would find the cure to my constipation NO MATTER WHAT. I started to meet other people from all around the world who had cured their constipation completely… and usually just by changing what foods they put into their mouth.
It was that simple!
If you’re not having a bowel movement at least ONCE A DAY, you are constipation my friend.
You’re not only constipated but toxicity from your stools that have been stuck in your colon too long is causing severe damage to the rest of your body. Even causing you serious diseases such as cancer.
Dr Bernard Jensen, America’s foremost pioneering expert on bowel health and the author of countless bestselling health books, says about constipation, “I consider it the greatest present-day internal danger to health. Constipation contributes to the lowering of the body’s resistance, predisposing the body to may acute illnesses and the initiation of many degenerative and chronic diseases. Constipation indirectly cripples and kills more people in our country than almost any other single disease condition. …My experiences have proven beyond a doubt that inadequate bowel movements and poor bowel hygiene are the sources of an untold number of disorders in the body.”
What other constipation symptoms are there?…
- Straining to force a bowel movement or straining during a bowel movement,
- Experiencing hard stools,
- Have a feeling on incomplete evacuation after having a bowel movement,
- Experience a sense of rectal blockage,
- Need to use added measures to have a bowel movement, such as finger evacuation or abnormal manipulation of your lower abdomen,
- Bloating, stomach feeling full,
- Aching cramps,
- The urge to poo but you feel like you can’t.
It is truly a nightmare situation to be in. The scary part is that if you do nothing about it, it worsens over time.
Having your bowels functioning properly lays the ground for all health.
The amount of people constipated in the Western world, especially the US, is increasing at an alarming rate. Some reports suggest around 70% of the American population suffer from constipation… half of those people suffer chronic constipation.
This situation is getting worse, not better. The current treatment is obviously not working… in fact, it’s making the problem worse.
Studies have shown laxatives, whether prescribed or bought over-the-counter, can cause irreversible damage to the nerves in the colon walls. Once nerve damage has taken place it’s impossible to fix. Laxatives, such as the stimulant type, unnaturally force the colon walls to peristaltic action (move the stool along) which is dangerous in any circumstance. They end up irritating the intestinal mucosa, kill off vital intestinal bacteria, induce unbearable cramping, and may provoke even worse constipation symptoms.
Increasing fiber intake is probably the most recommended piece of constipation advice from every man and his dog. Unfortunately, even though increased fiber sometimes has good short-term benefits the medium to long-term benefits are anything but helpful.
Fiber acts a bulking agent which increases the size of stools forcing the colon walls to grip and move them along with more ease. Unfortunately, what do you think this does to the walls of the colon?
It stretches them. This unnatural stretch is severely damaging over time. Those who use increased fiber intake are endlessly having to increase their fiber intake in order for their stretched out colon walls to be able to grip continually bigger stools. Painful hemorrhoids begin to develop with the increased strain of larger stools and the nerve endings in the colon are damaged until the colon cannot tell whether or not there is actually stools in the colon to be eliminated. When this happens, you poop is going nowhere!
As Dr Bernard Jensen said earlier in this post:
“Constipation contributes to the lowering of the body’s resistance, predisposing the body to may acute illnesses and the initiation of many degenerative and chronic diseases. Constipation indirectly cripples and kills…”
He’s not joking.
Constipation is a symptom in ITSELF. It is a symptom of the body telling you that it’s damaged and is not getting what it needs nutritionally.
Moving your bowels is not an acquired habit, it is pure INSTINCT. You don’t need to teach newborns how to poop… they do it as naturally as they breathe or cry. In fact, I know elderly people who are moving their bowels with ease more than once a day!
You don’ teach your body how to beat it’s heart. And you sure as hell don’t need to teach your body how to pass as stool… it already knows how to do that! You just need to supply it with what it needs.
I’m going to be talking more about what your body needs shortly in future posts! Watch out for them!
Best in health to you,
