How can I reduce constipation?

If you don’t take out the trash at your house, it will pile up, attract pests, and quickly become a problem. During the Cleanse your body is taking out its “trash” by eliminating toxins through the bowels. Having daily bowel movements will help make sure that toxins aren’t reabsorbed into your system.

Sometimes your bowel movements will increase when doing the Cleanse. Other times you may be constipated. If you are constipated here are a few ways to resolve it:

  • Stay hydrated: Drink enough water so you use the bathroom once every hour.

  • Eat fiber rich foods: Include leafy green salad, cherries, figs, prunes, pears, aloe juice, warm lemon water, or green vegetable juices.

  • Move it: Do some movement and exercise. Walking and light yoga work great.

  • Use Eliminate: This magnesium citrate supplement works wonders for relaxing the nervous system and increasing bowel movements. Purchase Eliminate on our website or at your local health food store.

  • Get a colonic: Colon hydrotherapy is very useful during your Cleanse, even if you are having regular bowel movements.Usually one per 21 day program is good.

  • 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.

  • Contact a Wellness Coach: If you haven’t had a bowel movement for a day or more, contact us and we’ll get you back on track
