The body works in cycles, NOT haphazardly. If we work WITH our bodies’ cycles, once we understand them, we would operate smoother like a well oiled machine. When we work against them, you hear of problems like indigestion, constipation, bloat, gird, lack of energy and even disease. On a daily basis we go through 3 cycles: taking in food which is called appropriation, absorption of those nutrients from the food is called assimilation and then eliminating what we took in after the body is finished extracting the nutrients (including billions of dead cells) is called elimination.
What role does being constipated play in your life? Is it just something to laugh about? Is moving your bowels still the forbidden thing to discuss? Does anybody ask you during the last week a life-saving question like “Does your poop float?” or “Did you poop today?” Are you thinking about what’s going to come out as much as how much you think about what’s going in (eating!)?? You better re-think these funny but Not So Funny thoughts and questions as your life may depend on it.

Our Gut, also known as the microbiome, is where the “friendly bacteria” live. The friendly bacteria actually makes up 70-80% of our Immune system. This area called our ‘Gut’ IS our “Conductor”. The “Instruments” are our organs. The conductor tells each organ when to play, for how long and with what degree of intensity. The end result could be called our “body music” – a well coordinated symphony of all our organs and body systems playing in perfect harmony… which equals HEALTH.
There are 2 definitions or opinions on what constipation is and how many bowel movements a day is considered normal. General mainstream medicine has stated 3 bowel movements a week is ok but never really makes clear what is good for health or why. Natural medicine (and common sense) says one bowel movement after each major meal is what should happen for optimal colon health. Since most Americans eat 2 major meals a day, 2 bowel movements a day is what you should be having.
Only those who suffer from constipation fully understand the term constipation relief.

So what causes constipation during the summer heat? What makes our bowel movements change during the summer? The answer is water water water. What all of us don’t realize is HOW MUCH water our bodies loose trying to stay cool in the summer heat, especially now when temperatures have escalated to extreme levels. The bowel uses water to move fecal matter through the large intestine. When it’s hot out and we sweat, not realizing how much water that sweat adds up to keep the body temperature from overheating, results in the slowing down the process of the bowel, increasing constipation levels.
