Let's Talk Bowel Movement!

February 23, 2016

How many times per day are you and your family going to the bathroom? 

Did you know that the amount of meals you eat per day = the amount of times you're to have a bowel movement? 

With that said, are you going the appropriate times every day?  If not, you may be experiencing constipation.  Some of the symptoms may include:

 

Less bowel movements

Hard and small stools

Straining

Hemorrhoids 

Intestinal gas

Headaches

Blood in stool

Abdominal scar tissue

Changes in stool color and form

Swollen abdomen and cramping

IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

 

As a result of less BMs and/or ongoing irritation in the digestive system/intestines, toxicity builds up in the body, and can contribute to:

 

Eczema

Acne

Warts

Cradle cap

Diaper rash

Hand, Foot, Mouth Disease
Bad mood
Brain fog
Challenge with making clear, focused decisions
Cancer

It's important to create an ongoing, healthy lifestyle that supports consistent release/letting go, emotionally, and, with your bowel movements. 

The following must become a staple in your everyday life:

Conscious eating - choosing food that nourishes your unique body/health needs. Foods that support healthy flow and free up constipation include: sweet potato, chia seeds/flaxseeds, green leafy vegetables, and if your body can comfortably process the sugar, fruits, such as, apricots, papaya, plums, figs, have been known to ease constipation.

Take the right digestive enzymes and probiotics - both provide your body with the tools needed to properly digest and food, repair the stomach, and the intestines, and promotes healthier elimination of bowels. Here's a brand our clients love

Flower essences - help to address the emotions associated with the holding on/fear of letting go. (More on that below)

Herbal tinctures - help to put back key nutrients into your body that you may have a hard time receiving from food.


As you may know, the root source of any physical condition is linked to our beliefs, emotions, and thoughts.  If you're experiencing constipation, consider this key question:

 

What fear-based emotion, thought, belief am I holding onto?

 

The answer may give you some insight into why you are having a hard time letting go of your bowels.  The answer may be obvious to you, or it may take some time for you to arrive to it. 

Don't give up.  Keep going. 

You may find it helpful to write in a journal your ongoing, upsetting thoughts, emotions (spotlighting what hurts most often), the ways that you react/lash out or shut down.  These can reveal what you've been holding onto. 

Once you acknowledge, the letting go process has begun.  

This journey of examining the inner health is applicable to adults and children.  It may be possible that your child could be experiencing holding onto, and refraining from expressing his or her emotional upsets, or emotions, in general. 

In most cases, children reflect their parents’ subconscious beliefs, and may be reflecting an emotionally constipating energy within the home.  It would positively serve all members in the family to experience this inner, emotional exploration.

 

One of the best ways to start to get the flow going is to drink sufficient water everyday - half your body's weight in ounces of water.  If you weigh 160 pounds, then drink 80 ounces of water.  Invest in an appropriately-sized water bottle, and sip every 10 to 15 minutes. 

 

As you address the constipation - physically and emotionally - simply tell, and commit to yourself:

This is an easy, loving way for me to take good care of myself, and I am worth it.

 

Over to you: Do you experience challenges in this area of your health, and how do you address it? Can you make the connection between bowel imbalances and your emotions?
