The Green-Wisdom-Health Podcast with Dr. Stephen and Janet Lewis-If Laxatives are a Major Food Group!
Constipation can usually be treated and prevented naturally
Stimulant Laxatives may decrease your colon’s ability to contract, leading to dependence over time.
The following whole foods contain high levels of soluble and insoluble fiber:
Chia Seeds, Berries, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Almonds, Green Beans, Cauliflower, Flax and Peas to name a few. Fermented Foods will also help support Healthful Bowel Movements.
Constipation Relief and Prevention Strategies:
