Reasons for constipation and how to find relieve

The reasons for constipation can be different, but firstly and the most important is:

1. The low residue foods. Those are foods without fiber, and the effect of using them is slow downing the passage of the food in the bowel which leads to impaired function of the bowels, rotting processes, caused by a large amount of income spoilage bacteria in meat and dairy products, fermentation processes, which are caused by high intake of simple sugars and inappropriate combination of food.

These rotting and fermentation processes have resulted not only with suppressing the importance of natural micro-organisms (for human intestine favorable), but also the emergence of harmful, rapidly toxic substances in gaseous and liquid form which penetrate through intestinal wall directly into the blood, thus flooding the entire body.

Today it is considered that most chronic diseases (headache, some cancer, chronic inflammation of organs), as well as acute illnesses (upper respiratory tract infections), is due to the ill intestine. Ill - in terms of the action from unphysiological bacteria that cause a change of intestinal contents, as can be seen in such unpleasant smell of faeces and wind.

2.

All waste in the body should be expelled within 18-24 hours...Also constricting bands of clothing can have influence.
