Chronic Constipation And How To Treat It

You’re probably familiar with the phrase, ”Poop or get off of the toilet.”

This is fine advice for a serial procrastinator but if you’re constipated this is the last thing you want to hear. In fact constipation is really no joking matter as it can lead to serious health issues if not resolved including skin issues, fecal impaction, hemorrhoids and even prolapse of your colon. Not to mention malnourishment, toxemia and all of the dysfunction that will happen over time in your entire system.

Of course common knowledge tells us that you need more Magnesium or that you are dehydrated if you are constipated. Both strong possibilities and for some simply increasing your water intake and supplementing with quality Magnesium may resolve the issue fairly quickly. But there are still many who suffer despite trying these common solutions, so what then?

Mislabeled ‘Adrenal Fatigue’ Is Crippling Your Health Potential

Foggy thinking, low energy, difficulty handling stress, mild depression, lightheadedness and increased effort to perform daily tasks are just some of the symptoms that integrative and alternative health practitioners are associating with what they frequently label “adrenal fatigue”.

Are any of these symptoms part of your daily experience? You’re not alone if they are.

And while someone may have told you that you have adrenal fatigue, in reality there is no medical diagnosis for adrenal fatigue. It’s not like there is something called stomach fatigue…or pancreatic fatigue or any other organ or glandular “fatigue” disorder.

There is something called diabetes which is related to dysfunction of the pancreas and there is something called acid reflux which is often related to stomach dysfunction but none of these has been given the moniker of “fatigue”.

So why the need to blame the adrenals for running out of gas or feel bad for them when you are tired, depressed and foggy minded? Or say, “Well you clearly need adrenal support because they are fatigued?” […]

Are Toxins To Blame For Your Weight Gain?

From synthetically manufactured medical drugs to everyday products such as cosmetics, plastic containers and even the carpet you’re standing on, the modern era has us swimming in a sea of chemicals that are trapping your body in a state of poor health.

And as we mentioned in our post on the optimal production of energy for weight loss, weight gain is a symptom of poor health just like any other symptom you might be experiencing.

The Ketogenic Diet: A Good Fit For Everyone?

Everybody loves a parade.

Brightly colored floats, music, dancing and everyone clapping with excitement for their favorite float or performance. Parades really are a lot of fun for everyone and a chance to just let go along with the crowd.

When one exciting float finishes passing by then everyone settles back down waiting for the next one to bring the crowd to their feet. Then it all starts again with clapping and cheering as another flashy and colorful float comes your way.

At times it seems like dietary trends are kind of like one of these parades.  Dressed up in their fancy costumes of “controlled” studies with a marching band of bloggers to set the beat.

You probably remember pretty clearly when the Atkins float came marching into town… […]

Are You Feeling Bloated, Constipated, Suffering from Allergies, & Tired of Taking Pills?

According to a recent study, 74 percent of Americans suffer from Gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms such as diarrhea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain and constipation. Isn’t that an incredibly high percentage?

Only half of those people even brought it up to their primary care doctor. This means that nearly 37 percent of Americans are suffering daily with chronic digestive symptoms and are not doing anything to resolve it. And unfortunately even those who did bring it up to their doctor often only receive temporary band-aids that don’t address the underlying problems. If you’re taking medication for this, do take a minute to read the side-effects of many of these medications. You might be shocked.

Are you one of those who is continuing to quietly suffer with digestive symptoms? […]
