Inspiration for better bowel management…
First of all, let’s define constipation.
I used to think it was when the bowels did not move every day. But then I realized (from watching a friend deal with a major bowel obstruction) that small hard stools are also considered to be constipation.
The lack of constipation may be easier to define.
This is when your bowel movements are easy,
soft and comfortable with no cramping or straining.
Constipation leaves far too much toxic waste just sitting in your gut. Then your immune system gets very busy to keep you healthy – so that you’re not immediately sick.
But sickness WILL come if you’re constipated on a regular basis – perhaps not in a way that seems clearly related – it may manifest in the form of fatigue, the flu, arthritis or cancer. Whatever your “weakest link” is, that will be where your health fails first.
After seeing the consequences of a major bowel obstruction, and how my friend carefully managed her bowels after, together we consider ourselves experts on bowel management. We would like to inspire you to manage yours better.
Many doctors treat constipation as a minor nuisance instead of the serious condition that it is, or can lead to. The dangers run from hemorrhoids to cancer – and given time, this could be you.
The Dangers of Constipation
Constipation predisposes you to any and many major diseases. If your body does not efficiently get rid of toxins (the bowels are one major eliminator), your immune system must work overtime to compensate, then any other system in your body can suffer.
As I said, whatever system is your “weakest link” will suffer first – mine is weak connective tissues. You may feel anything from arthritic joint aches and pains to full-blown colon cancer. I know that’s a scary one, but it’s a real threat from constipation!
Your colon is meant to hold only a few pounds of stool. When you’re constipated, your colon can hold 10, 20 or more pounds! But the weight is not the problem – the volume is. Large, heavy stools will stretch your colon, irritate the lining (mucosa) and the anus, and produce toxins from rotting and fermenting food.
Chronic Constipation can cause…
- Hemorrhoids (swollen veins in the anus from straining to have a bowel movement)
- Anal Fissure (torn skin in the anus from a large and/or hard stool)
- Fecal Impaction (accumulated stool that gets stuck and won’t come out)
- Rectal Prolapse (stretched and protruding intestine out from the anus)
- Polyps and Cancer.
At the very least, constipation affects your quality of life and diminishes your well-being.
To be healthy now and in the long-run, you must have daily soft and comfortable bowel movements, with no cramping or straining.
Unless and until you clean out your insides, serious diseases are almost sure to surface.
Majority of us are overloaded with toxins, and our chronic diseases are the direct result of accumulating toxins in the body. An optimally functioning detoxification system (healthy bowel movements for one) is necessary for preventing disease and providing good health.
How to End Constipation…
The usual advice for constipation is to increase fiber and water, and if that doesn’t work, then take a laxative with a “Pandora’s Box” of side effects.
Laxatives work by either stimulating the bowel (this can lead to weakened bowel muscle movement) or bulking up the stools (can lead to more constipation without adequate water). Both ways are not good solutions at all.
The healthiest way to end constipation is to have vegetables comprise about two thirds or more of your food every day. That’s what I do and it’s extremely effective, but apparently difficult for many people. If you’re not able to consistently eat large quantities of vegetables, then we have two healthy options for you…
Magnesium To The Rescue
Magnesium will easily get rid of your constipation. Be very careful with the amount you try, as its effects can be quite dramatic. A friend took too much and thought he might just get a lift-off from the toilet! (sorry for too much info)
Magnesium is a key, essential nutrient, necessary for every major process in your body. It’s needed for bone strength, muscle strength and heartbeat, as well as the functioning of your nervous system. Without these taking place efficiently, your body is in trouble.
Many debilitating and life threatening diseases are associated with magnesium deficiencies such as heart problems, strokes, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, asthma, premenstrual syndrome, attention deficit disorder, anorexia & bulimia, fibromyalgia & chronic fatigue syndrome, and depression.
MagO7 Digestive Cleanse
Ultimate colon cleanser for regular elimination.
Created to help restore colon health, especially after a history of antibiotic use where the “friendly” bacteria have been killed off, and the opportunistic anaerobes have taken over your colon.
Magnesium Oxide helps increase the oxygen in your digestive tract, supporting the aerobic microbes to build a better terrain and stronger immunity.
Beyond easing constipation, magnesium allows you to sleep well and stay calm, avoiding mood problems, restless legs, muscle cramps and twitches. It works by activating the rest, repair and digest side of your autonomic nervous system.
Some excellent side effects, right?
Along with alleviating constipation, Magnesium Carbonate has a wide array of medicinal properties in the prevention and treatment of magnesium deficiency.
One excellent way to absorb magnesium is through your skin – your body’s largest organ.
Simply mix into a wet paste and apply to your skin on its own, or add to your skin care products.
Further enhance the effects by adding Laminar Powder.
