    Being regular - letís talk bowels!

    My dear Nanna used to obsessed about her bowel habits, I’m not sure where this came from, but she would take meds to ensure she was regular!

    Personally, I prefer to take a more natural approach through my diet to ensure that I too am regular. Daily is good, it’s okay to miss one day, but I make sure I don’t go into day three without dispelling my toxins

    However, it astounds me how many people allow themselves to go 5 + days without emptying their bowels, and more importantly they seem unconcerned. There seems little emphasis by the medical profession to highlight the need for daily ‘off-loading’ of these toxins.

    Given this, it is no wonder we live in such a sick and unhealthy society!

    The woman I work with, her father was adamant that they all had a spoonful of castor oil growing up!

    I heard about the castle oil thing as a child too but I must be luck because I wake up and go straight away! I was constipated once on a camping trip and it was so painful!

    Maybe your Nan had been constipated once and it frightened her. It is so painful isn’t it?

    I know children can have a fear of passing their poo if they have had a painful experience from constipation.

    Being a man I like to take my time and sit with the newspaper, I can’t be rushed when it comes to bowel movements

    My poor Niece suffered with fear of passing her poo when she was younger, it took many, many months to help her overcome this fear, and sadly the food she wanted to eat, did not help to make things any easier!

    I would definitely encourage children to have fruit smoothies and slip some secret veg in too!

    My daughter became constipated as a very young child and it was incredibly painful to open her bowels and the stools were huge which led her to have a fear of going to the toilet which then led to yet more constipation and she ended up in hospital. My advice would be to give them fruit as soon as they can take solids so they don’t have to suffer like my poor daughter did.

    I went into Boots the Chemist yesterday and noticed the whole array of medications to help people become regular! What is shockingly that constipation is generally a poor diet problem, or a medication issue. Just simply changing your diet can help to overcome many of these issues, without the need for further medication.

    It is very rare I struggle with my bowels, but If I do, or feel I want to have a good clear out, I choose Triphala, I always buy organic and have benefitted from these brands
