How to prevent Constipation a.k.a Sembelit


I've got an interesting info from someone about what juice that can clean the Colon of Old Fecal Matter. Too saintific eh? Okay, I'm saying about your POOP-sicles. Haha. Yeah, your old poop-sicles in your body that haven't been flushed out.

Some can easily flushed it out.

Some needed medication to help flush it out.

Some may don't even care to flush it out. When it is time, it will come out.

But, don't you think that it may cause you constipation? and can even lead to Colon Cancer too.

So, here are some of the Juices that can help you on removing your old-unwanted poop-sicles :D

I've read that a human body can carry about 5 to 7 lbs of caked fecalwaste in their intestinel tracks. Believe it or not, the best JUICE to cleanse your colon is WATER!

When it comes to vegetables, the best vegetables to cleanse your colon is those that have YIN or COOLING ABILITY. As, constipation indicates your body is hot.

First, you need to look at your lifesyle. You need to eliminate as many processed foods as you can. These foods have no fibers and get stuck in body.

Second, realize the bowels need moisture to work properly. You can have all the fiber in the world, but if you don't have moisture in the bowels, then the fiber can't do very much. So you need to make sure you are drinking lots of water. As for juice, tea, coffee, sodas, - do not constitute as water. You need water and water by itself. Although tea has water in it, once you turn it into tea, the constitution has changed and the body no longer recognizes the tea as water. This same rule applies to juice, sodas, etc.

Third, foods that are high in YANG or HOT ENERGY will naturally burn the moisture from the body. So even if you drink lots of water, if you have too much yang energy, then the water is burned up by the yang energy. Foods that are high in yang energy include but are not limited to deep fried foods, BBQ / grilled foods, alcohol and other foods like green peppers, garlic, ginger, spicy foods and etc.

Taking all of this into account. What you need is to ensure you are drinking lots of water, getting sufficient fiber by eating whole foods and/or even taking a fiber supplement. Not eating too many YANG foods while having foods that are slightly more YIN (cooling) so the moisture stays in the bowels. But if you have too much yin energy then instead of constipation, you will have loose bowel movements and even bowel movements that appear diarrhea like in nature.

So, youo have to be balance.

More than juice, what you need to do is think of some foods to eat to help cleanse the bowels. apple juice, watermelon juice, papaya juice are some fruits that come to mind to help cleanse the bowels. Papaya is a great cleanser but I wouldn't have it all the time because papaya can also create too much dampness in the body.

Drink green tea instead of coffee. Green tea has a slight cooling effect on the body whereas coffee is a factor in constipation.

Eat vegetables like carrot, corn, squash, bamboo shoot juice and definitely eat some zucchini juice (or any squash for that matter), one of the best natural cleansers is zucchini though. Beets can really help to purge the bowels of old fecal matter but don't be surprised if your bowel movements or urine turn red after eating beets. But I would focus less on juicing and more on the foods you eat because that way you get fiber too.

Sure, the vegetables you juice will have an impact, but it's diet and lifestyle that will have the biggest impact on constipation, cleaning and preventing fecal matter from compacting within the colon. Also, it's worth noting that cold drinks and cold foods can lead to constipation.

Believe it or not, but cold drinks and foods make your body hot. Thus burning up moisture in the body. The reason why is because when you have something cold, while it may be refreshing to your mouth, as soon as it lands in your stomach, your stomach needs to warm the food or drink. To do this, the body pushes lots blood to your stomach. Of course, this then robs other parts of your body of blood. But it also robs your body of moisture. Cold foods and drinks should be avoided.

Please also remember that the colon is a muscle. When you have old fecal matter stuck in your colon, it becomes like cement along your colon wall. It prevents the colon muscle from squeezing. In turn, this contributes to a lazy (weak) colon which in turn makes the constipation issue worse.

So we want to ensure we are drinking enough water because that's what really begins to allow the old fecal matter to be removed. It's not a quick process to clean out the colon, but it is not a difficult thing to do either.

Constipation is more of a lifestyle issue. Juice has an impact, but if you fail to fix the lifestyle, the constipation will just continue. Just make some of the minor changes / adjustments above and I am sure you will notice a huge difference.

One last thought, try to get to sleep early, at around 10 PM is good. 11 PM is acceptable, but any time you go to sleep after midnight, you make your body hot by stressing the hormones and adrenal glands, meaning you burn more moisture in the body.

Colon cancer is one of the easiest cancers to prevent!
