Two things I’m focusing on every day are of course what I’m putting in my mouth (avoiding heavy carbs and things like buttons or thumb tacks) and then making sure I have a Bowel Movement (BM).
I have discovered beyond any doubt at this point that topical magnesium, as compared to taking magnesium internally such as via epsom salt or the various magnesium-based supplements works just as well, and more “naturally” (in a non-aggressive manner, certainly nothing like drinking a cup of senna tea) to keep the crap (“keep the krap”) in a soft and easy to manage condition. It completely eliminates binding up, hard, constipation, even though the mag is applied topically.
I have found another neat little trick in this regard, and will be doing a video on it at some point soon to get the word out beyond my subscribers; that of warm/hot drinking water.
Are you thinking coffee? And if so, are some of you saying “yeah, well, with coffee it’s the caffeine that causes the movement, not the warmth of the liquid itself.”
And that would be a common assumption, and I’d say even a partially correct one.
HOWEVER: Ever try drinking a caffeinated soft drink/soda to produce a BM? Of course none of you drink that stuff, as part of participating in the way I live my life via my program, correct?? 😉 (You better not be!)
My point is, the caffeinated pop/soft drink (why do they call it “soft”…because it’s acidic, “soft” on the pH scale) never produced BM’s for me. But when I used to drink coffee (sometimes I miss it to this day, and may drink it again some day minimally) I used to have, as many people do, a BM readily.
Try just warm/hot water.
What I’m doing is either plain warm/hot water (distilled these days, a big video/new info on that coming this year) OR, I will add about a half tablespoon of my grade B or grade A organic maple syrup to the water to sweeten it.
I sip it slow to moderate in pace.
Like clockwork…literally 90% of the time…BM within a half an hour after the drink.
(Stands on toilet and cheers, fists pumping high).
Give it a “go.” Pun way-intended.
P.S. “Yes,” someone really swallowed a thumb tack once. Probably more than once, but it was on a documentary about ten years ago. The show quelled my long-standing desire to swallow one myself.
