Depression, irritability, gas, bloating, acne, mood swings, backache, anxiety, bad breath, insomnia, allergies, head aches, obesity, tension, low libido and hemorrhoids are but a few side-effects from the long list of ailments associated with constipation.

Constipation is best defined as a slow and sluggish bowel whereby fecal matter accumulates and is stored in the colon. Once in the colon fecal matter becomes increasingly dehydrated and compressed hindering the passage of elimination. After constipation has set in, bowel movements are reduced to once every three or four days. Sitting and straining may only produce small and incomplete movements.

When you are constipated you cannot properly eliminate toxins and your body is forced to reabsorb the poisonous sludge that accumulates in your colon. Parasites thrive in this environment and rob you of valuable nutrition before your body has a chance to absorb it. The main cause of constipation is the modern day diet. Today’s average diet is high in animal fat, (meats, dairy products and eggs) and refined sugar- (rich desserts and sweets) but is low in the dietary fiber (fruits, vegetables and whole grains) needed to maintain proper colon function. An unhealthy diet is the cause of almost all constipation today and has greatly contributed to the current gastro-intestinal health crisis.
