The Constipation Menace

Did you know that the root of most chronic diseases results from CONSTIPATION?I bet we all have gone through a period of irregular bowel movements. It's becoming a common occurrence through out the nations. Despite affecting more and more people each day, does anyone recognize this as a problem? Or maybe it's considered normal to have constipation. Read on and think again.
After doing much research, I concluded that constipation exists in two forms, physically and mentally...Okay mental constipation is something new,isn't it? We'll get on that later, for now let's look at the usual constipation, disturbance in regular bowel movements.

What causes constipation?
  1. Lack of dietary fiber-With the modern diet patterns,fiber is less included in the menu.Even though it offers no nutritional values what so ever but it is crucial for maintaining a healthy colon and it absorbs fats and toxic waste to be brought out for elimination.
  2. Lack of water-When water is scarce in the system, solid wastes tend to harden, making it difficult to have a smooth exit,hence constipation. Salty, spicy ,fried foods are main contributors dehydration and of course drinking too little water. Take at least 8 glasses of water daily, take more if you're always in the run. 
  3. Emotional factors-Who would've thought that emotions could play a part in the bowels. Stress, anxiousness, depression. All this negative emotions releases toxic substances that impairs not onlt bowel habits but the nervous system as well.
  4. Weakened organs-this may due to obesity, old age or weak intestinal muscles,usually associated with genetics or poor eating habits.
  5. Lack of Physical activities-Those who spend most of their times sitting or slouching on the couch retards intestinal functions, be active and your organs will too.
  6. Fatigue and Illnesses
  7. Medications
a diseased colon

a healthy colon
When waste is produced but delayed in exiting the body it is fermented, releasing intoxicated gas into the blood flow circulating around the body affecting landing sites. If the gas goes to the head, a headache is felt. If the gas gets blocked in your finger tips, you'll get numb fingers. Where it goes it doesn't bring good news.
