Healthy Living and slimming

by Thomas Asare

    The answer to your health is in your poop.

    Friend, Do you know that unhealthy colon is the caurse of 90% of diseases?

    Being constipated means your bowel movements are difficult or happen less often than normal. Almost everyone has it at some point in life, and it's usually not serious. Still, you'll feel much better when your system is back on track.

    The normal length of time between bowel movements varies widely from person to person. Some people have bowel movements three times a day. Others have them only once or twice a week.

    Going longer than three or more days without one is usually too long. After three days, the stool or feces become harder and tougher to pass.

    Our health is closely linked to the state of our intestines. When one is living an unhealthy lifestyle with poor quality of food and water, drinking and smoking, and insufficient intake of high fiber foods, one is prone to have intestinal tract crisis.

    The digestive tract gets clogged with fats and toxins and infested with harmful bacteria. This leads to obesity and chronic diseases such as colon cancer, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, liver and kidney diseases, diabetes and heart problems.

    What Are the Symptoms?

    You may have:

    • Few bowel movements
    • Trouble having a bowel movement (straining)
    • You have pencil-thin stools
    • Hard or small stools
    • A sense that everything didn’t come out
    • Swollen abdomen or abdominal pain
    • Vomiting

    Why Does It Happen?

    Some causes of constipation include:

    • Antacid medicines containing calcium or aluminum
    • Changes in your usual diet or activities
    • Colon cancer
    • Eating a lot of dairy products.
    • Eating disorders
    • Irritable bowel syndrome
    • Neurological conditions such as Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis
    • Not being active
    • Not enough water or fiber in your diet
    • Overuse of laxatives (Over time, this weakens the bowel muscles)
    • Pregnancy
    • Problems with the nerves and muscles in the digestive system
    • Resisting the urge to have a bowel movement, which some people do because of hemorrhoids
    • Some medications (especially strong pain drugs such as narcotics, antidepressants, or iron pills)
    • Stress
    • Under active thyroid (hypothyroidism)

    How Do Doctors Diagnose It?

    If you have trouble with your bowel movements for more than two weeks, you should see your doctor. He or she may ask for these tests to find the cause of your constipation:

    • Blood tests to check on hormone levels
    • Barium studies to look for any blockages in your colon. For this test, you'll down a special drink and then get an X-ray.
    • Colonoscopy or other tests to look for blockages in your colon

    What Should I Do If I Am Constipated?

    Try these steps:

    • Drink two to four extra glasses of water a day (unless your doctor told you to limit fluids for another health reason).
    • Try warm liquids, especially in the morning.
    • Add fruits and vegetables to your diet.
    • Eat prunes and bran cereal.
    • Do not use laxatives for more than two weeks without calling your doctor. Laxative can worsen your symptoms.
    • For best and healthy result use organic cleanser like Shakeoff Phyto Fiber.
