Stop your Constipation with One Solution

It's a beautiful day today. You look outside your window and felt the recharging radiance of the sun that gently embraces your body. The weather is not too cold nor too hot. You think it's a perfect day for your family to go on a sudden trip. They'll love it, you think. Besides, it's not every day that you have free time and the weather is perfect at the same time, anyway. You decided to go for it then.

 

Now you're all set. Everybody's excited as much as you are. It has been a long time, ever since you went for a trip like this. You are about to step out of your front door, and oops! You unexpectedly felt this uneasy feeling in your stomach. You remembered that you have not passed stools for three days now. It has been months that you're having this digestion problem and whenever you reached a point that it will finally come out of your body, it has always been a tiring stay in the bathroom as you are pushing it with much effort. You are constipated. And it's not just for a day or two. You have been constipated often times for months now, like it has been a part of your cycle. You've been using laxatives for months as well that you felt your body has adapted to it, that's why it's not working well for you nowadays. This is bad. This is really bad. Now not only your digestive system is ruined, but your trip and your family's mood are wrecked as well.

 

What could you have done wrong for you to be constipated in this important day? You're thinking, it might be something you ate that could have caused this. Well, that's not entirely about that. A digestive problem is not a simple ailment that you can shake off once you're not feeling it anymore. It's a much more complicated health problem that needs to be attended before it could cause a higher toll on your body.

 

A lot of people are experiencing constipation from time to time and we tend to think that it can be solved by just taking laxative medicines, and poof it's gone! What we need to understand is how critical it is to have a healthy bowel movement to have fully-functional body systems. And when we talk about bowel movement, the whole digestive system, starting from when we take in food in our mouths, down to the intestines before we actually release it in the hot seat. When the digestive system is not working properly, the food we eat will not be digested the way it should be. We get constipation from dysfunctional bowel movement resulting in absence of urge to excrete waste from our body and difficulty of excretion because of hardened stools.

 

It is a common knowledge that our body accumulates toxins from breathing air in the environment we are in and from eating foods that are touched by these toxic chemicals. It is almost inevitable to prevent these harmful toxins from going inside our body no matter how we try to avoid it. Unfortunately, we are infiltrated. What's worst is that when we get problems with our bowel movement, these toxins inside can leak into the bloodstream and spread throughout the body. This "simple" constipation can end up affecting all the organs, hormonal glands, and tissues that are detrimental in keeping us healthy. Constipation is the source of people's foul breath, coated tongue, lack of energy, and difficulty in thinking. It can also be the reason for degenerative diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, and even cancer, just because of unflushed toxins.

 

It's time to act on it before it's too late. Increasing fiber in our body, along with regular exercise and a healthy diet, can be our solution for having a healthy bowel movement and freeing our bodies from such toxins. Fiber can be found from fresh fruit, vegetables, and whole grains, but in most cases, it is rather impossible to gather all the food rich in fiber, as it can be costly or nowhere to be found within your area.
