Constipation should be defined as 'partial elimination', but how does one know if they need help eliminating? By the age of 50, the average person has 45 pounds of 'sludge' in the intestine! This is fecal material that has slowly accumulated and compacted in the colon for decades. The stomach (abdominal) area is often referred to as the universal complaint of 'fat storage', but maybe it is less fat than you think. Constipation is diagnosed as having a bowel movement fewer than three times per week. Stools are usually hard, dry, small in size, and difficult to eliminate. Some people find it painful to have a bowel movement and often experience straining, bloating, and the sensation of a full bowel. It isn't a question of IF you might be constipated, but how extreme your case is. The true fact is, you should have a bowel movement for every meal that you eat! Your dog has to be let out after every meal, it is a simple rule of nature. If you are not eliminating this often, you need to help your system along.
Constipation is caused by lack of fiber in the diet, lack of exercise or insufficient water intake. Additional causes of constipation are medications, pain pills, or genetic factors. This is probably far different than what you have been taught by the medical field, so you may want to read the full article. Stop abusing your body with commercial laxatives filled with chemicals and sugars, use this natural alternative. We produce the absolute BEST natural solution for constipation. All of our ingredients are herbs produced in nature and our formula works even for severe cases where everything else has failed. We produce a specific combination of herbs as the body needs a chemical reaction to occur and homeopathic-style remedies are unable to do that. Our Bowel Stimulant will keep the body's elimination channel open by: stimulating bile production and its ability to be released by the liver and gallbladder; and promoting peristalsis of the Intestine.
Did you know that 95% of the food you eat should be processed and eliminated from the body? The 5% remaining is the nutrition the body extracts from the food as it passes through the intestine. Of course, in today's world, it is doubtful that 5% of what we eat is nutritious. Due to all the preservatives, colors, dyes and pesticides, it is doubtful that 5% of your diet is actually nutrition unless your diet consists primarily of fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
Suggested Use: Start by taking one Bowel Stimulant with your evening meal. Increase by one capsule each evening until the bowels are moving as often as 'healthy elimination' dictates, (found in article above) without causing diarrhea. Once regularity is established, keep taking that dosage each evening to maintain it. If your bowels become diarrhea like, reduce the amount of capsules you take or add IC-2. Do not use Bowel Stimulant if the bowels are already loose, your body will lose too many electrolytes.
DO NOT USE during pregnancy as some of the ingredients cause muscle contractions and since the uterus is a muscle, contractions can cause premature labor.
Does Bowel Stimulant cause cramps? Intestinal cramping can occur when you first start taking it because it stimulates the contraction of internal muscles that have become atrophied or sluggish. These cramps are no more harmful to the body than when you perform push-ups and feel sore the next day when you haven't been exercising in a while. As your internal muscles develop strength, you will no longer feel cramping. If you experience cramps, simply place a hot water bottle on your abdomen to relax the muscles.
Can Bowel Stimulant be used every day? The most important thing for your overall health is that you have regular bowel movements. Some people do need to use it every day in order to have regular, dependable bowel movements. The reasons for this may be dietary imbalances, digestive problems or hereditary intestinal issues. Although Bowel Stimulant is in no way harmful, Dr. DeHaan recommends taking IC-1 as a daily bowel enhancer because it is a fiber base rather than a stimulant. If IC-1 is not effective enough to ensure regular bowel movements, please do not hesitate to take Bowel Stimulant every day.
