Clear constipation for good with Intestinal Formula. Available in ‘regular strength’ and ‘triple strength’ to deal with mild and heavier constipation.
Intestinal Formula is not habit forming, and does not weaken or release poisonous irritants to the bowel, as many laxatives do.
A variation of Dr Christopher’s famous lower bowel tonic that cleanses the liver and gall-bladder, stimulates the flow of bile and aids peristalsis so that the layers of encrusted ancient mucous lining of the colon can gradually and gently slough off as the bowel is rebuilt, resulting in the perfect and efficient assimilation of food. It also helps heal inflamed diverticular pockets and relaxes tension in the colon.
Am I constipated?
Chronic constipation is common, with people often moving bowels once or less a day. This results in a build up of old matter in the intestines and can result in up to only 10% of the food eaten being utilised.
Healthy bowel movements are soft like cottage cheese, coloured like wild honey and smell un-offensive. A healthy bowel moves in less than two minutes with no strain, about 20-30 minutes after you’ve eaten. Anything else is a form of constipation.
Constipation is often a sign of dehydration. Read more about dehydration symptoms and prevention here.
REMEMBER: To prevent constipation from reoccurring daily drink 8 glasses of water, start every day with a large glass of water with lemon, eat plenty of hydrating and fibre-full foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables. Mindfullness, yoga and deep relaxation can also help to relax the intestinal muscles and promote ease of (bowel) movement :-)
