View Full Version : constipation
03-14-2007, 12:09 PM
Well i am attempting raw food for a second time having failed the first time due to constipation and a very severe cough that was causing excrutiating pain-have suspicions it could be the broccoli as i started coughing to a lesser degree the other day when i had some. The first time round the constipation would go on for week even when i fast on just water for some days because i couldn't face eating.
Any way lets move forward to now and i'm back with the constipation on raw food and i need you help.
By the way this is my first so hi everyone.

Are you eating something that's binding you up, like bananas? Are you getting flax seed into your diet, via crackers or ground up and added to anything? Could it be nerves? Is your intestinal track psyched out your playing a trick on 'em with all of this healthy food and waiting to see if they can trust you? Did you have a history of this with SAD food? Can you afford to go to a colon hydrotherapist? How about applying pressure to the point on the foot that corresponds with the intestines? Just give us some info and we all will overwhelm you with loving advice! Regardless, welcome aboard, stick it out and there's a good life waiting for you at the end of the intestinal tract, oh, I mean, tunnel.

herbal laxitives, lemon/water and a pinch of sea salt, first thing in the morning and between meals on empty tummy. P.S. check out the past threads about the same thing. I know for the first 3 weeks I was bloated and bunged up and then it all started coming out .;) :)

Papayas...is the answer to freedom.......
Never had a problem eating so much raw fruits/veggies, but then with the tooth infection I choose to do antibiotics as nothing natural was working for a long time very recently. As a result of close to 2 days using them, going to the bathroom was very hard and straining...never experienced that before.
Fresh papayas did the trick and I am now happily back to normal. I can't imagine what it would have been like if I had continued for the 7 day prescription. Yikes. Best to you.

Get some phsylluim husk and drink it in water in the morning. It works! It's fiber, and as long as you drink enough water you can go well.
Love to all!
