Constipation: Causes, Cures, Remedies, and Self-Help

Constipation: Causes, Cures, Remedies, and Self-Help

An estimated 50 million Americans get constipation on occasion.  Eighteen million Americans, (women twice as often as men), feel constipated on a regular basis.  

When your stool is hard, infrequent and requires significant effort to pass, you have constipation.  If it looks like it belongs in the cat box rather than the toilet, you have constipation.

I was tired all the time, only to discover I had a mild case of  constipation.  Now that I control my constipation I feel younger and have more energy.   My skin is clearer and I need less sleep.”

– Sue Perkins

When the colon is clean, we experience feelings of well-being, good health and more energy.  The colon is, in effect, the sewage system of the body and like any garbage retainer, it is susceptible to stagnation, rotting and the build up of poisonous substances. If constipation is unchecked, the decay is not limited to the intestines.  The poisons that build up in the intestinal tract are reabsorbed causing fatigue, irritability, weakness, lack of ambition, bad breath, bloating, flatulence etc.

Some people with mild cases of constipation do not know any different and go around feeling tired all the time.  Are you feeling tired?  A clean, smooth operating, intestinal track is a necessity for good health, peak energy and a long life. 

Good health is achieved as much by how well we eliminate food as by the quality of the food we consume.
