Constipation Remedy That Is Helpful and Isn’t Food Related

If you have constipation, or your poop is just having a hard time leaving your body, watch this. In this episode of Thank Gut It’s Fixed Show, I’m sharing the 1 non-food tip that will help you alleviate constipation.

Did you know that the regular toilet you and I use can make you backed-up and constipated? Your body is naturally designed so that the rectum is completely open and the muscles are relaxed when you’re squatting. This helps poop flow naturally out. Watch the video to see an image that to help you understand what I’m talking about. At a 90-degree angle seated position (like when we sit on a toilet), the path is only partially open, and you may need to strain to push waste out. Aside from constipation, it can cause hemorrhoids and diverticulitis. No fun.

Years and years ago before the modern-day toilet was invented, people squatted when they needed to eliminate waste. They used a hole-in-the-ground toilet, and these are still used in some parts of the world.

Never seen one? Watch the video and I’ll show you.

The modern-day solution is to use something that will elevate your feet up and allow poop to naturally flow. The first company who came up with this invention is the Squatty Potty. You can find alternatives in other stores or use shoe boxes or something else to do the job.

No matter what you choose, elevate your feet. Your position makes a difference. If you ever had to sway back and forth while sitting on a toilet because things are stuck, it’s your body’s instinct to relax that part of your rectum and open the passage.

When you’re ready to dive deeper into your health and get a customized food and supplement plan to alleviate constipation and other digestive problems, let’s talk.

Nour’s guidance and expertise was the key to dramatically halting our son’s [Crohn’s] disease progression! His pediatric gastroenterologist is now in agreement of our choice to treat solely with diet and supplements. All his labs have improved and his inflammatory markers are so low they are practically nonexistent.

Before working with Nour, I experienced intestinal pain off and on for for 54 years with minimal success on medications. I have benefited 100% from Nour’s program as I am now pain free!

A lot of time and money was wasted on foods that I thought would help my digestive struggles [diarrhea, bloating, hunger], but in fact I was making it worse. The main benefit is getting a handle on what negatively affects my digestive symptom. Doing a total 180 to my eating habits has been pretty amazing.
