My colon hydrotherapist put my on "Detox Program". Back then I did not know that from using Senna and Cascara Sagrada you can get very dependable and terribly constipated. Although, I had about 10 colon therapies, I am still severely constipated. I eat very healthy, I drink about 1 gallon of watter per day, I use probiotics, I take enzymes, etc. I already did 3 Liver Flushes but it seems like I am going nowhere. I had colonoscopy done a few weeks ago and my doctor found that I have a dark pigment on my colon walls. He said because I was "abusing" laxatives. I didn't. I had no idea that the supplements I've used had Senna and Cascara Sagrada. It seems also that my metabolism slowed down. How can I come out of this mess. I have a bowel movement ONLY by using enemas. Please help!!!
well thats a good question. personally i like the LB17 since the bacteria are actually allowed to live outside for two years before they package them up! this means they are hardy and active, not weak and pathetic like most probiotics.
however, a friend of mine tried every probiotic under the sun, including LB17 and none of them worked until she tried the syntol, and that worked.
so, it could be an individual thing.
did you see North's post below about how to make fermented veggies at home?
did i mention figs? seems like eating lots of figs is very helpful for my bowels.
You should realize that you are not alone. There are many people that do not realize the harmful effects that the Senna,Cascara Sagrada and Psyllium Seed Husks can have on your intestinal system. The product that I have used for the last 3 years is called Oxypowder . This product is an oxygen based intestinal cleanser. I have talked to their customer service on several occasions and the people there are very knowledgeable about the harmful effects of the herbal laxatives that many people take to relieve their constipation. However, many people do not realize that these types of products do not actually address the root cause of constipation. These products act as a band aid and does not actually help your body to rid itself of the toxic material that is the actual problem.
I hope this helps you to realize your goals to a healthier and happier you.
I just noticed that all 10 of your post are pushing Oxypowder . That seems rather strange unless you are working for them. Oxypowder is not the end all cure for constipation because it requires continual taking of it and too much magnesium can harm your liver, kidneys and other organs. It is NOT a natural product! You don't just happen to work for that company do you?
Oxypowder might get you going again, but just be careful that you don't have to take that all the time. They are an honorable company because they will refund your money if you don't like it so it might be worth trying. (I ordered it once, but when they sent me another order that I didn't order, I refused that and sent the other back and they did give me a full refund.)
Just remember that everybody's system is different and what works for me, may not work for you, so it is just a trial to see what works when you try out these alternative methods.
