Is Your Body Toxic?
This subject may not be socially acceptable to talk about... and I don't want
to cause anyone to feel uncomfortable, but, my mission is to share with you
any information I can gather that can give you a better, longer, and healthier
life. The subject: The health value of daily elimination.
Constipation prevents waste from moving through the colon easily, which causes
it to remain in the colon too long. If this happens often, or is a way of life,
it can cause some serious health problems - and beauty problems, as well. To
be blunt, this is decaying fecal matter and toxins in your intestines that
can easily contribute to many diseases. It is vital to expel fecal matter as
quickly as possible. Constipation also inhibits the flow and absorption of
vital nutrients in the body.
Bad (pathogenic) colon bacteria produce toxic secretions that act as poison
throughout the entire body. When fecal matter in the colon is not eliminated
for days, the colon becomes toxic - this toxicity then spreads to cells throughout
the body. The toxicity in the blood stream from this decaying waste also interferes
with the delivery of oxygen to all the cells and tissue in the entire body,
depriving them of necessary oxygen for good health. Also, straining to have
a movement can damage the tissue of the lower colon and the blood vessels in
Aging of the skin can start in the colon. An unhealthy colon can cause blemishes,
rashes, poor skin tone, even wrinkles, and leads to premature aging of the
skin. The hair can also be affected, slowing growth and becoming dry and dull.
Constipation is a symptom you cannot
ignore, even if it occurs once in a while, since it will lead to slow poisoning
of the entire body. Regularity is very
important. Don't wait for a disease to "happen" to show that you
are ill... take the bull by the horns, and don't let constipation become a
Here's What You Should Know And What You Should Do
*Not Enough Fiber is one of the main reasons for constipation. Fiber adds
bulk to your stool, allows proper bowel contractions and promotes healthy bacteria
in the colon. A healthy colon helps assimilate valuable nutrients for a healthy
body. If your stools float, you are probably getting enough fiber, if they
sink, you are not getting enough.
*Processed foods and
constipation go hand in hand. A high intake of products with refined white
flour encourages constipation. These foods have a tendency
to "sit" in the intestines.
*Lack of exercise and sedentary lifestyle. Exercise brings more blood, oxygen
and nutrients to the intestines which help them function properly.
*An insufficient amount of fluids. Drink
at least 8 glasses of water a day. Constipation is the sign of chronic dehydration…if you’re
not drinking enough water, the fecal matter can become hardened, leading
Concerning constipation, tea, coffee, or sodas do not count, and in fact can
actually worsen the problem.
not the way to "solve" the problem. They can worsen
the condition, if used too often, since they remove the good bacteria and lesson
the absorption of vitamins and nutrients already in your system. You should
correct the problem through proper methods; using laxatives regularly can get
you hooked on them.
*Flax seeds (or ground up flax seeds) or flax seed oil purchased from a health
food store and taken daily is very beneficial. Start with a small amount and,
if it does not solve the problem, add more to your routine each day until it
does. Also great for healthier and shinier hair and soft healthier skin.
*Prunes or prune juice can be taken, but not on a long term basis because
it acts as a mild laxative, your system can become dependent on it to function
properly, and will prevent your system to eventually function on it's own.
*Other foods that help are bran, fresh fruits, leafy green vegetables, legumes
grains, seeds, nuts, carrot juice, beets, garlic and honey.
Note: If you suddenly become constipated and it does not clear up within a
week you may want to consult your doctor.
