FMTV - Constipation Tips Everyone Needs

Constipation Tips Everyone Needs

Series: Food As Medicine TV: Season 2 | Episode: 4 | Runtime: 12m 09s | Release date: 2018

There are a lot of things we can do to help alleviate constipation, which a lot of people complain about. If our bowel is not moving we are recirculating toxins throughout our system, which is a heavy burden on our kidneys, liver, and the lymphatic system. Ideally, a person should have 2 daily bowel movements.

Reasons for constipation:

  • Low thyroid hormones
  • Lack of movement
  • Not drinking plenty of water
  • Complications from medications
  • Digestive issues

Alleviate constipation through these natural ways:

  • Eat foods high in fiber such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
  • Drink plenty of lemon water to increase hydrochloric acid production
  • Take supplements like magnesium and triphala

She kept referencing sites that she would link to... but I didn't find them. Where could I find the links to more information about healing the thyroid?

From my computer, it is difficult to identify the recommended supplements. Would you be able to supply the list with the manufacturer names and names of the supplements or ingredients in the supplements? Thank you so much. :)
