At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements we see a lot of people struggling to find some regularity in their life. When I say “regularity” I am referring to bowel movements. Almost half of North Americans are constipated!! I often joke with our customers that perhaps one of the main reasons people are so up tight and have road rage or short tempers is due to constipation. We have all experienced constipation from time to time and it is not a pleasant feeling. With constipation comes: worry, stress, poor digestion, toxifying your body, discomfort and lastly colon cancer.
So what can you do about it?
Digestion and issues such as constipation are not a simple matter. We often talk to people for awhile to see if they need probiotics (Renew Life’s Ultimate Flora), a cleanse (Renew Life Cleanses) or other things to move their sluggish colon along. BUT one thing is for sure, almost EVERYONE (especially in North America) can benefit from consuming more fibre in their diet and you can do this by simply eating 1/3 of a cup of Nutracleanse every morning! Nutracleanse is filled with ground flax seeds (omega 3), psyllium husk fibre, and a blend of 3 herbs.
Other benefits of Nutracleanse:
Laxatives: NOT the long term solution:
Laxatives are not the sole answer. Many people become dependant on them as your large intestine and colon become lazy. Therefore, for a long term solution the healthy way is through getting an adequate amount of fibre in your diet everyday. Also, be sure to drink pleanty of water. Other things to help lubricate the colon are: fish oil, borage oil or flax oil. Other things you can combine with your Nutracleanse that are extremely healthy are probiotics (your good bacteria). Then for good measure doing a cleanse every six months will have you in extremely good shape. With this recipe you are looking at a healthy happy colon.
OATMEAL WITH NUTRACLEANSE:
Add 1/3 cup oatmeal and 1/3 cup NutraCleanse to 1 cup cold water in pot with dash of salt. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently. Turn heat down and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Empty into bowl, cool for a few minutes, and serve with honey & milk. Enjoy!
