You by now may have realized why it is of utmost importance to have a clean and free flowing colon by avoiding the causes of chronic constipation. I will now go over the possible solutions of its symptoms for your edification.

Solutions for Chronic Constipation: Introduction

In some cases, there are residues in the body (gall stones, impacted fecal matter, etc) that are "stuck". Intestinal residue may have to be assisted mechanically via a raw fruit and vegetable diet (for a while, if you don't want to go the route of being 80% or more raw) and regular fasts.

Every change of diet for the better should start with a 1-2 day fast. Of course, you must get the body prepared gradually for this with the proper transition diet which is also issued in the text. Before this 24-48 hour fast, ensure to observe the following menu suggestion.

Solutions for Chronic Constipation: Suggested Diet Menu

Breakfast: Fresh Juice

Lunch: One or two seasonal juicy fruits

Supper: Vegetables: Cooked, Raw or a combination.

Never drink during a meal. The more liquids you consume while eating, the more difficult it is to digest the foods, as the liquids tend to dilute the digestive juices.

Also ensure to chew each mouthful of your meals thoroughly. This is known as Fletcherism: A process which involves you chewing each mouthful to a liquid or semi-solid pulp, by consciously masticating a mouthful of food over and over, ensuring to mix it with your saliva.


Between each mouthful swallowed, purposely have between 4-6 seconds of a brief pause as well. When you observe this, it not only allows your stomach and intestines to rest as in a fast and this consequently promotes elimination that hereby enables the vital organs to recuperate. By ‘fletcherizing’ mono-meals of fruit say Melons in summer or Apples in fall, this can used as a form of a preparatory stage for a fast.

Furthermore, thoroughly masticating your meals helps to curb your appetite so you don't over eat even the best foods, as assimilation is greatly enhanced through this discipline.
Moreover, this (besides a fast of course) is one sure-fire method of avoiding chronic constipation.

Chronic Constipation: Exercise also Matters.

Another way in which both mild and chronic constipation can be avoided will be by engaging in physical exercise. This acts as a stimulant for peristalsis, the wave-like motion in the visceral organs that induces a natural relief from constipation. However, on this subject, perhaps the best form of exercise for chronic constipation relief will be the incomparable Yoga. Let me take this time to introduce you to some effective yoga poses that combat constipation effectively.

Chronic Constipation: Yoga Poses that Could Help

1. The Bow Pose
2. The Shoulder Stand
3. The Peacock Pose
4. The Abdominal Lifts
5. The Breathing Exercises.

These poses specifically target the abdominal region of the body and in executing them; one finds a natural remedy for constipation. Adequate information on these poses can be found on several Yoga sites online or you can fire up your favorite search engine and get the information on them. However for interested parties, I have ensured to describe in detail the execution of these poses to combat chronic constipation in my book.

Remember, the human body before all other physiological considerations is an air-gas engine constructed in its entirety-with the exception of the bones-from a rubber like, very elastic, spongy material, called flesh and tissues. For this mechanism to work most efficiently, obstruction in these tissues needs to be eliminated. With the methods listed above you too can naturally be free of chronic constipation and well on your way to improved health, vigor and vitality.

Naturopathy has proven that ALL diseases have their roots in constipation, a clogging up of the human bodily tissues. To combat this enemy of health, you must take some steps to succeed. Read more for your edification.

For those of you who have fallen prey to some of the hype presented by some colon cleanse distributors about the amount of fecal matter in John Wayne's colon when he died, please review these facts from Snopes.

According to the research of pioneers in Naturopathy, it will be safe to say: Every disease is simply a product of chronic constipation which is a clogging up of the entire pipe system of the human body.

The average person is constantly carrying 10-15 pounds of un-eliminated feces in their bowels. This in itself has a toxic effect on the blood stream. Experts in autopsy have stated that in 60-70% of the colons examined, foreign matter such as worms and decades old feces-stones have been found still present within.

Prof Arnold Ehret, author of the Mucus-Less Diet Healing System, stated that in his fasting retreat, he had fat patients who eliminated up to 50-60 lbs of waste alone from their bodies! Chronic constipation (as in the colon) in itself might be the cause of a plethora of diseases. Taking these into consideration, it definitely will be an understatement to say that all measure must be taken to alleviate constipation in our bodies.

Causes and Effects of Chronic Constipation:

Chronic Constipation may be caused by:

1. Failure to pay attention to the desire for bowel movement.
2. Lack of sufficient fruits and vegetables in the diet.
3. Lack of fluids by not drinking enough water. (Not just liquids as in sodas and alcohol!)
4. Poor food combinations and consumption of mucus forming and hard to digest foods.

As was mentioned earlier, the more the feces remains in the colon, the more it poisons the body as the blood stream must come in continuous contact with the colon. Furthermore, as the colon remains unclean, the foods in the stomach remain undigested or hard to assimilate, which explains why some people who apparently might be skinny, still can consume loads of food.

All of these considered, it is plain to see why fruits, some roots and mostly raw green leaf vegetables which serve as nutrient giving items and intestinal brooms, form the basis of a healthy diet. It is important to know that healing properties, not the calories as most diet fads state is the main factor for choosing a diet and avoiding chronic constipation.

The stomach is the central organ of disease matter supply. There is a limit to its ability to digest and to empty itself after the meal especially with a clogged up colon. This explains why a foul breath is perceived in the mornings and why most people look drawn and constantly tired.

The constitutional obstructions in your entire system are the sources of all diseases be it excess weight, acne, asthma you name it! All of them have their source in the colon. Without proper diet and exercise, the Standard American Diet is never eliminated and the entire system is slowly constipated, especially in the place of the symptom of the disease.

Keep in mind, as with any human ailment, chronic constipation can be cured and prevented permanently, you perhaps only need to be shown how for your success.
