understanding your health better.
Ideally, we should have one good bowel movement daily. Constipation results when waste material moves too slowly through the large intestine.
People who are constipated may find it difficult and painful to have bowel movements regularly as the colon is the holding tank for waste matter.
If waste matter is not eliminated harmful toxins can accumulate. These toxins develop bowel bacteria and undigested food particles and may cause discomfort in the form of gas, bloating and perhaps fatigue. Constipation arises from a variety of causes including poor diet, insufficient water and fibre intake, stress, inadequate exercise, medications and certain physical conditions.
As with any change in your diet your SureSlim Eating Plan may temporarily cause alterations to digestion and bowel transit times, but this should rectify itself as your system becomes accustomed to your new dietary regime. Longer term bowel problems take time to develop and thus may require time and diligence before significant improvement is experienced.
Please speak to your SureSlim Health Coach if you are experiencing constipation. The solution may be as simple as adding some fibre.
The following tips will aid in preventing constipation:
· Ensure you consume all your vegetables at each meal time.
· Ensure that you drink at least 2 litres of water daily.
· Seed mix and Pumpkin Seeds are a great source of fibre that may be included daily.
· Drinking warm water can promote a bowel movement.
· Massage your abdomen in a clockwise motion.
