But, isn’t it funny how it is the topic of discussion among new moms about their babies? And then among girlfriends in their 40’s and older?
“How are you Eating, Sleeping and Pooping?!!!” The fundamentals of life.
It is one of the most important questions I ask my clients — How often are you having Bowel Movements? Why? When you don’t eliminate frequently, those toxins are being reabsorbed in the body.
It is estimated that 20 percent of people go less than 3 times a week. That is Severe Constipation. That percentage is much higher when you include those who are only going once a day and assume that is normal. However, think about babies — they go every time they eat — the way nature intended it to be…
Causes of Chronic Constipation that get us “off track” are:
- Abnormal diets with excess Sugar, GMO foods, Gluten
- Lack of good Bacteria in the GUT
- Candida or some other type of Infection in the Intestinal tract
- Prescription Medication
- Hormonal Fluctuations or Irregularities — Permanent or even just Cyclical
- Thyroid Disease
- Fear of using a public restroom and other Psychological factors
- Spinal, Brain or Nerve Injuries, or any other type of injury or disease involving inflammation or blockage around the Intestines
The more serious causes of Chronic Constipation are Diverticulitis, Kidney Disease, Colorectal and Gastric Cancer, Ischemic Colitis, Parkinson’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or Irritable Bowel Disease.
So what can you do about it?
- RESTORE: Designed to balance gut health, support respiratory wellness, combat environmental exposures, promote immune function, enhance mental clarity, and promote hydration. It is naturally gluten-free. RESTORE has been shown to create a beneficial shift in the bacteria making up the microbiome, which is what many people are attempting to do with probiotics and prebiotics. Carbon-based redox molecules from ancient fossilized soil help restore the communication network between bacteria in the gut, mitochondria, and cells in the body.
- Accelerated Detox Powder: Not only does it help regulate Bowel Movements and Balance the Digestive System, it soaks up the Alcohol from Holiday parties and eliminates risk of Hangover.
- Laxa Comfort: Gently and naturally stimulates bowel movements. Regardless of how constipated you are, this will make having 2-3 movements a day occur consistently.
- KETO: Helps cleanse the Liver and Gall Bladder and naturally stimulates the Elimination system.

- NEW Ultimate Flora Max Critical Colon 80 Billion: It has 14 strains of which 7 are Bifidobacterium totaling 52 billion cultures that support the colon. The rest (28 billion Lacto strains) support the Small Intestine. This formula is great for anyone with Chronic Colon concerns such as Constipation and Intestinal Bowel Disorders (IBD). It is helpful in IBS with Constipation and/or Diarrhea, and also for older folks (over age 50) who need more Bifidobacterium. After age 50, our bifido colonies begin to decline. More bifido means more butyric acid production, which means healthier colonic cells.
- Increase hydration: Warm tea with Lemon is preferable. Add Aloe Vera Gel to your liquids.
- Eat more: Green leafy vegetables, Olive Oil, and Fermented Vegetables
