What diet should I have to rid of constipation?
Any idea how can I get a healthy intestinal transit?
High fiber diets are the best for your intestinal tract and for constipation. The fiber helps stimulate your GI tract to push everything down and out. high fiber diets are also a good way to protect yourself from colon cancer. you can find fiber in cereal, whole grain bread, fruits and vegetables. you can also take a fiber supplement, but it is never as good as getting it in your diet.
I have conflicting information as to how many bowl movements is good or normal. What is the normal amount for a person with a healthy cleansed colon or is on a regular colon cleanse regiment?
Please site your source for the answer to this question. Thanks!
It’s basically impossible to predict. Many of these ‘cleansing’ procedures are not particularly healthy – in addition to having no actual health benefits. For some people it is normal to have a bowel movement only two times a week, for others, daily. Either is completely normal, and there’s nothing pathological about either.
Many ‘cleansing’ regimens severely disrupt the internal flora and absorption processes of the GI tract. This can result in a slowing of bowel movements and constipation all the way to constant runny diarrhea. That’s of course for those regimens that actually do anything to the GI system at all.
Basically, it’s impossible to gauge health or normalcy from bowel movements. There’s a huge range, and despite what the charming evangelist selling laxatives on the TV at night says, you can’t claim any particular number as what everyone should be having. It’s not very productive to focus a lot of energy on this, as the medical data is quite clear about the above.
