What happens if I become constipated while on Gut?
Many changes occur in the body when doing Clean Gut. The amount of fiber and water is increased, new whole foods are introduced, and often there is some stress when beginning a new dietary plan. Due to these factors, there may be an adjustment period when constipation occurs. Since it’s important to keep the bowels moving to get the most benefits from your program, here are some tips you can use at the first signs of sluggish elimination.
Use Eliminate : Add 2-3 heaping tablespoons in 8 ounces of warm water in the morning and evening.
Get a colonic: Colon hydrotherapy is very useful during your program, even if you are having regular bowel movements.
Disconnect and relax: Stress is a common cause of constipation. Consider shutting off the phone and computer for a while, and relaxing in a warm bath.
Get to bed: Often we become constipated because we haven’t given our body the rest it needs. Go to bed early or take an afternoon nap.
