Constipation:  The Root of Your Diseases

According to National Health Interview Survey, about 4.5 million people in the U.S. say they are constipated.  In fact, Constipation is one of the most complained about gastrointestinal problems among the people who suffer from this deadly condition.

Why is Constipation Deadly?

Many people are unaware that if Constipation goes left untreated, it can cause a myriad of serious health conditions.    When stool stay in the intestine for an extended period of time, the intestine removes an excessive amount of water, causing the stool to become dry.   When this happens, unhealthy bacteria, infections, and viruses have a field day & eat of the waste in your colon.   Not only that, but your intestine stops function properly when you’re constipated.  So, most of the food you eat will not get absorbed and digested by your large intestine.  This process can cause a variety of painful and deadly diseases.  I’ll explain the conditions linked with constipation in a minute, before I do, I want to list some of the common causes of constipation.

    I had constipation bad the week before thanksgiving. I tried everything from hot water and jogging to laxatives to prune juice. Nothing worked. The prune juice came the closest making me poop tiny bits every few hours but not enough to relieve my constipation. Thanksgiving day I drank 8 ounces of magnesium citrate. It comes in a glass bottle from a drugstore or walmart.. it doesn’t taste pleasant but you can mix it with orange juice or a fruit smoothie or some grape or prune juice to make the taste better. Within five hours I was flushed out. Its the disgusting miracleliquid for adults or children with constipation!
