When we are not properly eliminating, we are poisoning our own bodies! If you are not having regular bowel movements, toxins are being re-absorbed into the body. Visualize the plumbing system in your home. A pipe gets clogged up and suddenly you have a toilet overflowing with toxic waste and it’s literally soaking into the carpet! Now think of your body as that plumbing system and simply imagine what happens when your colon is clogged up. Your skin will show it too.

Dr. Bernard Jensen states, "Constipation is often referred to by those who have studied the situation as the "modern plague". Indeed, it is the greatest present-day danger to health. Intestinal toxemia and the resulting auto intoxication is a direct result of intestinal constipation."

According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse, "Constipation is one of the most common gastrointestinal complaints in the United States. More than 4 million Americans have frequent constipation, accounting for 2.5 million physician visits a year."

Common Causes of Constipation:

  • Low dietary fiber - The American Dietetic Association recommends 20 to 35 grams of fiber per day. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the average American eats an average of 5 to 14 grams of fiber per day.
  • Lack of physical activity (especially in the elderly).
  • Some medications can cause constipation, including: pain medications (especially narcotics), antacids that contain aluminum and calcium, blood pressure medications (calcium channel blockers), antiparkinson drugs, antispasmodics, antidepressants, iron supplements, diuretics, anticonvulsants.
  • Dehydration - plenty of water can hydrate the colon softening bowel movements and allowing them to pass more easily. Caffeine, cola and alcohol dehydrate the colon.
  • Changes in life or routine such as pregnancy, aging, and travel.
  • Abuse of laxatives which can become habit-forming.
  • Antibiotics can completely eliminate the good bacteria.
  • Ignoring the urge to have a bowel movement may result in losing the feeling to have one.
  • Processed, devitalized foods that are low in fiber or bulk.
  • Tobacco, coffee, sugar and alcohol upset the digestive process and nerve responses.
  • Specific diseases or conditions: neurological disorders, metabolic and endocrine conditions, as well as systemic conditions.
  • Conditions in the colon or rectum that can suppress, squeeze or narrow the intestine or rectum: Intestinal obstruction, adhesions (scar tissue), diverticulosis, tumors, colorectal stricture, Hirschsprung's Disease, or cancer.
  • Problems with intestinal function includes idiopathic (of unknown orgin) constipation , functional constipation (the bowel is healthy but not functioning properly) as well as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Some Symptoms of Constipation:

  • Hard, compacted stools that are difficult or painful to pass.
  • Straining during bowel movements.
  • Infrequent bowel movements.
  • Tummy aches that are relieved by bowel movements.
  • Blood in stools due to tearing of hemorrhoids and anal fissures.
