Constipation is a health issue that should be taken seriously yet people live with it year after year without solving the problem of what causes it. It might take 40 years, but it will get you in the end (no pun intended). Along the way you will develop arthritis, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease or any number of other ailments. Why? With constipation you are holding toxins (poisons) inside your body. They build up and cause damage.
Common sense tell us that what you put in your mouth (food) affects what comes out the other end. If you are constipated, you need to change the food you eat. The best guideline for this is the book “Eat Right 4 Your Type“ based on your blood type. If you are type “O,” wheat and other gluten products irritate your bowels. If you are type “B,” chicken will irritate your digestion. If you’re type “AB,” chicken and beef are irritating. Milk products are constipating for all blood types and especially hard on type “A.”
There are some natural laxatives that help you have good bowel movements–but don’t forget to change your diet. A very good and gentle natural laxative is Cascara Sagrada. Cascara Sagrada gently stimulates the movement of your bowel and also helps to strengthen it.
Another laxative plant is Senna Leaf
Aloe Vera has laxative properties that are stronger yet.
Magnesium has a laxative effect when taken at higher doses. The usual daily dose is 400mg; you might double that for laxative use
Of course, there’s fiber; important for a good bowel movement. Psyllium not only offers a good fiber but it also absorbs moisture, making for a smooth move.
