Reasons for constipation
Constipation has many causes, some of which are:We instinctively know that we need to poop and feel uncomfortable when we don't go for days, but do we really know why pooping regularly is essential?
Why is pooping is so important?
Pooping is our body’s natural way of removing waste, toxins, and hormones. The skin, kidneys, lymphatic system, lungs, and bronchioles are also elimination organs, but it is the bowel that is the most abused and neglected.
What happens when the bowels don’t cooperate?
When too much pressure is used from straining to poop, we can develop bowel pockets, where the lining of the colon bulges and food and contents collect there. These pockets are called diverticula and can be a house for fermenting, rotting food and other contents.
Rotting of food in the bowel and the development of diverticula can stimulate the growth of dangerous pathogens such as parasites, bacteria, and fungus.
Toxicity leads to poor oxygen delivery in the body. Without oxygen, our energy levels are depleted.
