QUICK HEALTH TIPS: Constipation 0
Constipation is very common, but fortunately, easily remedied by changing certain habits. Ironically, one of the biggest obstacles is that you may not even realize you ARE constipated!
Conventional medicine defines constipation as having less than two or three bowel movements weekly, when in reality it should be at least one daily, and preferably two or three! If you have less than one daily, you need to correct the problem…and fast!
Regularity is vital for health because without it, toxins accumulate and are recycled in the bloodstream. Constipation can also raise the risk of developing hemorrhoids or fecal impaction in which the solid waste material must be manually removed. Fortunately, constipation is usually temporary and relatively easy to resolve.
