The Importance of Reflexology & Detox on Healthy Digestion
What goes in, must come out... but is it always that simple?
One in twenty deaths are related to compacted stool in the colon, almost half of North Americans suffer from Constipation. When the bowel is severely under active, the toxins your body is trying to expel are reabsorbed through the bowel wall into the bloodstream. These toxins are then distributed through the body and deposited in tissues, causing inflammation, fatigue, sluggishness, mental haziness as the organs begin to malfunction.
Sometimes, constipation is not a physical issue, but rather an emotional one. Ill will, anger, fear and grief shut down our bowels tightly. Stress for whatever reason usually has an effect on our bowel movements.
Virtually all disease is caused by the autointoxication caused by constipation. When waste isn't eliminated as fast as it should be, bacteria and acids set in, throwing off your body's state of homeostasis. You can see how one problem quickly escalates and causes many more disruptions for our system. It is obviously quite important to treat constipation as an extremely important issue so as to prevent related issues within the rest of our body.
Sometimes, a healthy lifestyle including whole grains, fruits, veggies and exercise isn't good enough to maintain healthy bowel movements.
In a healthy colon, there should be one bowel movement for every meal eaten. So what can be done to ensure this happens?
Dehydration plays a huge role in constipation. Make sure you are getting your 8 glasses (if not more) of water daily. The first thing you do in the morning should be to drink a large class of clean water.
Up your fiber intake! Try a phylum flax blend and sprinkle it on your salads, cereal or yogurt.
If constipation has been an ongoing issue, and you feel tired, sluggish, suffer from heartburn or indigestion, chances are, your body has been dealing with autointoxication for a while now. Detox is vital to restoring optimal health! Ionic foot detox works, however something ongoing would be more beneficial. A detox program or tea, such as Dr. Miller's Holy tea will help clean your organs and restore vitality, as well as loosen the bowels to help rid your system of fecal matter.
Regular reflexology sessions are also very important in getting stubborn bowels moving. Every organ in your digestive system is treated, allowing an increase in bile production, a relaxation of tight sphincter muscles, and an increase in intestine productivity. The physical and mental aspects are treated, as relaxation is an integral part of every reflexology session. Many clients report an immediate relief after a session, and the effects last for weeks after each treatment.
If you're one of many who suffer from constipation, don't wait one more day to find relief. Find a reflexologist and talk to your health care store to find a detox that works for you.
