Constipation is usually related to dryness in the colon and weak digestion. People don't understand that the human body should be having basically the same number of bowel movements as the number of meals the previous day. Just one bowel movement a day is mild constipation. If you're missing a day without a bowel movement, this means toxins are increasing in the body, which will lead to inflammation in the GI tract, as well as joints, muscles or even nerves in the future. The long term effects of constipation, results in fatigue, inflammation, pain, headaches, and nutritional deficiencies, as well as structural changes in the colon (diverticuli.) Additionally, constipation can obstruct the urinary flow and can lead to recurrent bladder or urinary tract infections. Fortunately, herbal treatments, supported by the right diet and good eating habits, can resolve constipation in a matter of weeks.
The treatment protocol includes dietary guidelines, supplement recommendations, home remedies and laxative/colon cleansing herbal powders. With a change in diet and eating habits most cases improve, however, proper colon cleansing including herbal and oil enema (basti) treatment are necessary for most chronic cases. Signs of an unhealthy colon include heavy tongue coating, sinking stools, only one or no stools passed daily. Healthy bowel movements should be at minimum daily, preferably in the early morning and two or three per day. After years of constipation, auto-toxicity of the liver and blood occurs. In which case, liver detoxification is also required to restore overall health and metabolism.
Therapy requires one private consultations (in Ojai, CA or by Skype) plus herbal products.
