Digestive issues are a common problem. One of the most common digestive problems is constipation. We’ve all gone through bouts of feeling backed up. It’s probably because our diet has changed so much over the years. There is a proliferation of highly processed food and we seem to be NOT drinking enough water. We keep eating processed food because it is convenient and lasts longer than fresh food.
A quick trip to the vending machine down the hall will prove this point. You can have your pick of chips or fudge bars but you won’t see apples or salads being dispensed. Bagels, donuts and high calorie frappuccinos dominate our breakfasts. They’re convenient and they ease our hunger. But the trade off is that we miss out on fibre rich foods that are good for us. Fibre acts like a broom, it sweeps our insides of toxins and helps flush them out. If we don’t eat enough fibre, we end up constipated.
Constipation is a digestive problem characterised by:
Women are three times more likely than men to experience constipation. It’s just biology. Women’s colons are longer and have more twists and turns. But constipation is experienced by everyone at some point in their lives no matter what gender or age. Constipation is not only uncomfortable, it can also cause a host of problems - hormonal imbalance is one of them.
Toxins form inside our bodies when we don’t flush them out (through pee) or eliminate them regularly (through poop). Metabolised hormones re-enter the body when you don’t get them out of your system. This prevents the endocrine glands from producing a new batch of hormones and this can be dangerous. In fact, many harmful metabolites can stay inside your body if you don’t poop it out.
For example, in women, the metabolites of harmful estrogens (e.g. 16-alpha-hydroxyestrone - which can cause breast cancer) can be reabsorbed by the body. This can lead to estrogen overload - and can create havoc on your body. Unnecessary estrogen circulating in a woman’s body can, down the line, lead to hyperthyroidism, and can cause breast, endometrial, and cervical cancers.
Ideally, it is best to go potty at least once per day. You can help your digestive system along by doing these things:
