Constipation is a digestive disorder and so might go under my digestive disorder page, but for those that suffer it chronic constipation is a major focus. AND I am told that there is little information out there with that focus, and what there is is not very good (aka, take fiber. Wrong!!).
I know someone that suffered chronic constipation for many years, and could find nothing that helped. She looked and looked for information …
Well finally, after all these years, the problem is gone!!
I haven’t given this much time, and so this page is starting out – jut to get this out there – in a pretty rudimentary form. If you have interest and want more, make a comment or send an email and I’ll get a fire under this project.
Constipation, when it is present, is a symptom of an imbalanced digestive system. Proper bowel movement can be restored by healing the inflamed lining of the digestive tract.
The Five(?) Points
- Fiber Menace – Fiber is not your friend. They also say, “Dietary fat is the only substance that initiates the action that precedes bowel movement,” which leads to the next point.
- Fat – While the Fiber Menace doctrine is pro-fats, it doesn’t accentuate the fat issue enough. GAPS and SCD deal with digestion, and do it very well, but you have to dig around to find application to constipation. … MCT oil … Ketogenic Diet
- Gut Flora
- Foods Tolerance – Maybe this is food allergies, but it may not rise to the level of allergy. The idea here is to pare down your diet temporarily to a very few foods. Then, assuming you are not constipated eating these, you add one more, and then one more, etc. rejecting the foods that constipate you.
- Nutritional Factors – I am adding this. I think it is important to consider. Consider things like your pH – are you acidic? Are you getting the eight sugars? Are you getting broad-spectrum minerals? What else?
Here is how it was done in the case of my friend:
Eat nothing that irritates the digestive tract. I’ll come back with a more detailed deal on this, which is a dietary regime, but I’ll give you the gist for now.
Eat fats and oils (the good ones only!)
No raw foods
No fiber (yes, that’s right! You don’t want fiber when you are constipated. You want oils and fats instead!)
No wheat, but white rice is OK
Steamed veggies, but avoiding the irritating ones
Actually the diet is started out very limited, and then one food is added to it at a time so that if a new food causes a problem it can be set on the bad list.
