You Need to Poop

You Need to Poop

You want to have a bowel movement within the first two hours of being awake. From my personal experience and that of colon therapist, you should have between four and five bowel movements a day. It is optimal if you have a ‘movement’ within two hours of eating. 

Your colon is one of the main excretory systems. Your skin and lungs also release a lot of toxins on their own. Stagnation of colon function results in a state of auto-intoxification where your body literally reabsorbs its own toxins. You need to have a regular bowel movement function if you want to have a life of optimal health. Below are four steps to a healthy bowel movement:

- Drink between 1.5 to 2 L of pure water per day

- Eat more fiber (apples, gluten-free oatmeal)

- Exercise an hour a day

- Make sure your thyroid is functioning optimally

The liver is the second major organ for detoxification. I suggest you take one product for your liver daily, either cleansing or support. I personally use either Milk Thistle or Dandelion Root. The liver neutralizes the toxic items you put in and on your body.

The average female applies over 150 chemicals to her body daily. Ladies, I need you to become label savvy. We have several great herbs for liver support. Eat eggs, onion, and garlic to support the liver.
