Constipation Medicine – What to EAT to get rid of constipation long-term (no medication)


– Hey beautiful Gut Feelers,
today we’re gonna talk about constipation, constipation
medicine, a diet that helps you to get rid of constipation
long-term without using more medications or any
kinds of special supplements. I’m making this video for you guys because constipation is a subject that comes up again and again in my clients’ practice, but also here on YouTube and
the Gut Feeler community, so I really wanna help
you to get out of this. This is a really big
subject, very complex, not complicated, just complex. One of the main factors
that cause constipation is dehydration, then we have
a high toxidity in the body, often combination with inflamation
and swelling in the gut. Then, we have an overburdened liver, which is sealing with the toxins, but also with all kinds of
medication residues, and on top, we have something called
neurological fatigue. For example, if you have a lot of toxic heavy metals in your
body, they can actually interfere with the neurotransmitter, and so often a neurological
signal that is given from your brain to your
stomach, your intestines, which has to do also
with your peristaltic, with the motility of your gut. Now, as this is a big, big subject, I wanna do a separate video on this. What we’re gonna do in this video is, I’m gonna give you a
three-step diet change plan. It addresses all of these issues
that I talked about before. Good news is, it’s super simple, it doesn’t contain any medication, it doesn’t contain more supplements. It’s simple, but it’s not
easy, and why it’s not easy is because it addresses your diet habits. Changing diet habits is never
easy, we are addicted to food, it’s stimulating us, it’s nourishing us, it’s normal, we all want it. However, if you wanna address
constipation long-term, you really wanna get rid
of all those medications and stop taking all of those
enzymes and more supplements, be dependent on that, then
you’re gonna address your diet. It’s also gonna have a positive impact on other symptoms in your body. You have more energy, clearer skin, that’s just to name a few. To make these three steps
simple and easy for you, I recommend you, whenever
you listen to this, don’t freak out, do them for one week. Commit for them for seven days. This is usually something our head can do, and after those seven days, reassess, how did your constipation develop, do you even still have constipation, or is it gone completely? Now, let’s dive into
this, I’m super excited, I wanna help you out here. The three steps, three diet changes to get rid of your constipation long-term. Step number one, what you
do in the morning matters. It matters a lot, so
for the next seven days, if you commit to do that,
watch the video ’til the end and then you can make your decision. For the first one hour, two
would be better, one is minimum, you’re gonna focus on hydrating your gut, hydrating and not eating. There are two options which you can do, and you can do them both or either/or. First, you drink warm lemon water. Yeah, this is just one
lemon squeezed into water and you drink that, or
you do cucumber juice. You add two cucumbers
juiced, and also drank. Both of these address
hydration in your gut, and you also give your liver,
you give your intestines time to really complete the digestive process and bring out everything that
is stored upfront at night that hasn’t moved yet in your colon, move out and have your
first bowel movement. Even if in the first days it doesn’t work and you don’t have your bowel
movement in the morning, it’s still gonna build up,
it’s called compound effect. So, step number one,
repeating, super simple. The first hour when you wake
up, two hours would be better, you drink either lemon
water or cucumber juice. What is not allowed, sorry guys, is coffee or black tea or anything like that. Herbal teas are good as well, but at least one lemon water or one cucumber juice. Both lemons and cucumbers,
they are super hydrating for your gut, they contain a
perfect balance of minerals, which also help your
peristaltic in your gut. You can drink, then,
additional water and tea, whatever you want, not
black tea, not green tea, herbal tea, if you need more hydration. Step number two, for
helping your constipation, we’re gonna focus for the next
seven days on eating foods that are high in nutrients
and low in calories. There are two foods groups
which are falling into that. This is fruits and vegetables. These foods naturally
contain a high water content if you eat them raw, which I recommend, are high in fiber, they
are high in vitamins, and high in minerals and
nutrients, fruit are nutrients, which will help your
gut to restore itself, help your liver to rebuild,
the bile production will go up, and the most important thing,
guys, this is really key, so really key here in step
number two is that these foods, vegetables and fruits, in general, are low in fat and low in protein. I know if you’re in the paleo movement, if you’re on the keto
diet, I understand that you heard a lot about I need my protein, I need more fats, healthy
fats, but for that week, I want you to try it out because it works. Allow your digestive system this break, going low in protein, low in fat, your liver has time to restore itself, restore the bile production,
you’ll also have, you’ll also have a better
chance to digest your foods completely because likely
you have low stomach acid. All of these, I’m addressing
in a separate video because it’s just gonna get too long. Step number two, eat a lot of foods that are high in nutrients,
these are vegetables and fruits. Best would be raw if you can, and minimize your fat intake
and your protein intake. And last but not least,
step number three, guys, and this one is the challenging one. (laughing) If they weren’t
challenging already for you, this one, I know it’s gonna hurt. Maybe there is a lot
of, no I can’t do this, coming up in your head, but
if you’re serious about this, doing that for one week,
you’re gonna see a change, you’re gonna see improvements. What is it, third step, is gonna be leaving out four trigger foods. These four are eggs, any
eggs, organic or not organic, if you watch the hen lay
the egg, it doesn’t matter, eggs need to go, dairy
products need to go, all kinds of dairy products, even yogurt and stuff like that,
ghee, butter, everything. Then, we have gluten, any
grains that contain gluten, and the fourth one is processed foods. Processed foods, often
they are full of additives, they contain aroma, they basically mess up your whole internal chemistry. They also often fried
foods, yeah this is also a processed food, by the
way, and the link here video where I explain a little bit more about why these food groups
are actually not helpful for improving anything in your body, but for now, I want you to go
out there and try that out. So, let me summarize. The best constipation
medicine, if you wanna improve your digestion and your
constipation long-term without medication and
without more supplements is this, a diet change. Number one, the first one or
two hours after waking up, you’re gonna focus on
cleansing your digestion and hydrating it with lemon
water, warm lemon water, or cucumber juice, and
then additional herbal teas or high quality water is allowed, too. Number two, gonna eat
nutrient-dense foods, which are raw would be the
best, and they are low in fat and low in protein to give
your digestion a break as well and your liver as well, and number three, avoiding the most common
four trigger foods, dairy, eggs, gluten, and processed foods. Guys, I know this is a lot,
I told you it’s simple, but it’s not easy, think
about this, make a decision, if you’re really into this
and you wanna give this a try and heal your digestion
long-term, then commit to it, and if you made that step,
I’d love to have a comment from you down below with
a yes and a start date. When you commit to start this week, let us know in the comments
below, yes plus start date. If you’re completely
overwhelmed and think like, oh my god, what should I
eat, what am I doing then? I got you covered there. I made a beautiful, delicious
recipe guide for one week. It’s called the Gut Healing Challenge. It complies to all the
things that we discussed in this video, and you
don’t have to think about what to eat, when to eat,
gives you all the information. So, if you’re interested in
that, check that out below. Thank you so much for watching,
I wish you a beautiful week, and I know you can do this, don’t give up, let’s get to work, bye-bye.

  1. Starting today. I’ve been keto for about a year but I’m tired of constipation (suffered literally since I was a kid). I introduced eggs and dairy when I started keto but it’s not for me. I plan to remain keto but cut down like you said on the protein and fats even tho I’m craving macadamia nuts 😐

  2. Hey is it okay to use CALAMANSI instead of LEMONS? Btw calamansi is a Filipino citrus fruit.

  3. What about milk? Can milk be taken?

  4. why is eggs not good I learnt eggs has good cholesterol for our body so why you saying we should eleminate it for me when I eat egg I fat a lot for it

  5. I can’t believe how good I’ve felt since I started CBD oil! Almost instantly my constipation issues ended! Healthy eating is important of course, but some people are on meds which constipate them.

  6. Very nice information.tq

  7. What do you mean 1 or 2 hour, is it drinking it before meal, and as well how much do i need to drink a lemon water is it a glass of water? Thanks

  8. Will this help for me i have over tight pelvic floor muscles which cause my tp have constipation

  9. Yes tomorrow 😀

  10. I've been WF plant based for three days thanks to Barbara O'Neill on YT and I just tried your cucumber juice and I went to the bathroom like an hour later. I think I have IBS-C on top of acid reflux, but this is amazing! My symptoms are less worse. My body just can't take grains, eggs or wheat.

  11. I have headaches during constipation. What should I do?

  12. U should add aloe vera juice (room temp or slightly warm on stovetop) on empty stomach 1st thing in the morning, everyday works wonders

  13. I start with this diet in one week, when l return from holiday.
    already l start to avoid milk chees and fet, it is problem to start more serios because l can not make food for myself.
    best regards from Serbia.

  14. Great upload wish I saw this before buying herbal tea. Smooth movement or something that does work. But I’m going to try what you suggested when I get paid. Left a like n supported your channel. Much love 💜

  15. I would suggest diluting the cucumber juice a little and sipping it slowly if your liver is heavily messed up like mine is. Drinking it quickly can be a massive shock and give you a terrible feeling for a short while after you've downed the drink.

  16. Nothing really helps if your system cannot digest food properly. You can eat all the veggies you want but if you dont digest , constipation will persist

  17. Can i drink warm lemon after eat lunch or dinner

  18. Thank YOU beautiful God BLESS

  19. Constipation is welcome in my turf , I turn red , I make faces , and push, push, push, there goes the sub.

  20. Nice video. Though. You are wrong in some aspects. Fats aren’t bad for digestion, in fact you need fats for digestion and healthy bowel function especially healthy fats polyunsaturated and monusatured. You need 45 to 75grams or so a day of healthy. Fats aren’t the problem, it’s fats in excessive amounts or amounts that your body can’t tolerate. Too much fats can dramatically slow digestion and even lead to malabsorption. Also another really important thing for digestion & bowel function is Potassium. You need potassium for lots of things in your body including digestion & bowel function. You need more potassium than sodium, potassium also helps keep sodium levels in check in the body. You need 3,500 to 5,000mg of potassium a day. One of the things that potassium does in the body is it acts as a natural laxative by drawing water into the colon to help soften stool. Potassium works alongside sodium. Potassium is found in lots of foods especially fruits, vegetables, tubers, legumes, nuts, meat, seafood, dairy especially naturally produced or minimally processed dairy & meat, etc. as well, moderation is key.

  35. Hey for the cucumber juice, do i have to filter the pulp or keep it with the juice? Btw, thank you so much for the tips, i've been on off constipation for months and it really stress me out. I will try these tips tomorrow.

  36. I have the urge of feces in morning but I don't feel complete evacuation this may be constipation? I usually go toilet 2-3 in morning this has made my life worse (not always).

  37. I don't know. But this is my last chance. Yes 8/3/19

  38. I have had chronic issues for years due to med's for chronic migraines, hives, fibromyalgia. I started Medical Medium protocols to address these issues over 3 weeks ago, went totally raw vegetarian (I use raw honey) and start day with celery juice, wait 20 min, then 32 ounces of warm lemon water with honey (for hypoglycemia)…and…NOTHING!!! I am still having 1/2 cup organic coffee and using some fat in almond butter, coconut milk, avocado…I wonder if that's the hold-up?

  39. What about Apple Cider Vinegar in the morning?

  45. Yes

  46. So for number 1 I only drink lemon juice? In the morning No food 🤔

  47. Sound good i try tks

  48. Hello im very serious and happy to earnestly try this. The first 2 steps i feel confident about , and as it is for "just" 7 days i feel certain i can go with step 3 also….However, where i know im going to need help from you is a more detailed itinerary of a daily plan/ timings on how and when to eat in short more guidance.

    For e.g.
    8_10 am just drink lemon water.
    For rest of day ONLY eat friut and veg , 70% raw and is that it til bedtime , and therefore repeat this process × 7 days.???
    Please reply with anything else i need to do. I dont want to be doing it wrong , e.g not getting enough energy in my diet.
    Hope this makes sense?

  49. Guys i also my gut problem even when I'm a child. My method is chugging water ( i usually do 1 litre or 2, and i will start feeling coming),
    Also i don't eat dairy because I'm intolerant to eat, i try to keep what i eat simple, have been pooping every morning , TRY IT!

  50. It's like an reversed spell on penetration

  51. I rather eat the cucumber juice now but thank you 😊

  52. Yes I m gonna start

  53. In the morning I always start with 2 glasses of water. Should I drink the cucumber juice after the water?

  54. Hi! My name is Robbie & I'd like to share a little story with you, I'm about to turn 69 years old in just under a months time, when I was about 26 years old I contracted hepatitis, how or where I caught it I have no idea but thankfully it was picked up & treated extremely early, I was able to get rid of it completely, however some of the symptoms come back from time to time such as the horrible metallic taste in the mouth, feelings of weakness, extreme tiredness, weight loss through loss of appetite. I've had ct scans ultrasounds & a colonoscopy done & they've all come back clear. The problem I have is mainly the loss of appetite I usually only eat once every 3 or 4 days & then it's usually not very much just enough to feel full for that meal but not overeating, consequently I only weigh between 60 & 66 kilograms which is between 10 & 10 & 1/2 stone or 132 to 145 & 1/2 pounds ( at least I don't think I will ever have to worry about obesity )so my bowel movements are all over the place, sometimes it's normal, sometimes it's like diarrhoea & sometimes it's like constipation so I'm going to give your technique a try & if it works I couldn't be happier to finally be given the shits (the right kind for a change) after all I've tried just about everything thing else I could think of without much success so here's hoping.

  55. Thank you for the most helpful video. It worked for me in 24 hr. I stopped eggs, dairy and bread. Then I started warm lemon water in the morning , chicken and salad with olive oil dressing for dinner and fresh fruit for dessert. So happy to finally have an easy solution.
    Thank you!

  56. It worked for me in 24 hr. Now I'm subscribed and hoping to pick up more useful information.

  57. Wow… thanks so much for this video

  58. Try for 1 week
    Step 1
    Wakeup: in the first hour (2hrs will be better)
    Option 1: Drink warm lemon water
    Option 2: cucumber juice
    Black tea/coffee (x)
    Herbal teas okay for extra hydration

    Step 2
    Eat more fruit&veg (raw is better)
    Water content, minerals, nutrients
    Key point:low in fat and low in protein

    Step 3 (the challenging one)
    Leaving out 4 trigger foods
    Eggs
    Dairy
    Gluten
    Processed foods

  59. Can you go back to protein, and the “4 triggering foods” after the week? I dont want to be restricted to fruit&veg for the rest of my life🤯

  60. Are limes instead of lemons ok?

  61. Yes starting Sunday 11th August 👍

  62. Thanks for taking the time I appreciate

  63. Yeah ,you sound so bubbly it are not to try your expression on this matter is motivating

  64. No offense. I don’t see any benefit in this as this may not work for everybody. This doesn’t address every issue related to constipation. Not everybody has a intolerance to dairy, eggs, gluten or processed or fried fats. unless your body can’t handle them or you just have weak or abnormally slow digestion. Cleansings should only be done in limited circumstances such as being backed up in the colon or having large amount of stool that is extremely difficult or impossible to evacuate. But you should then combine moderate dosage of laxative with one day or so diet of foods low in fat, protein like you say. The laxative is could be a natural one or a conventional one. Wait, I forgot fruits n vegetables contain potassium which is vital and a natural laxative itself so then no need for those conventional laxatives. You need sodium to produce a bowel movement. You would need to add in some salty foods to ensure you maintain the proper sodium levels in the body. Sodium deficiency can constipate you. This would at least reduce amount of straining required to poop.

  65. Rule of Thumb . . . Everybody’s circumstances is different in one way or another. For example muscular or bulky people may have better digestion than others. You get the idea. Also my trigger foods are a lot of vegetables when eaten raw or high fiber grains but I can obliviously tolerate them in moderate or smaller amounts. Not all bloating is bad. Bloating due to constipation which happens often when you are backed up in the colon. Any bloating lasting longer than 3 or 6 hours is bad.

  66. Yes I will be starting from tomorrow morning..
    God bless you.
    Love and respect from India

  67. Can you do both lemon water and cucumber juice? If so, how or in what way would I do that?

  85. I can say it works and I learned by experience before hearing this talk… My family gave me a few cucumbers and I ate the entire cucumber with salt and pepper with garlic… It tasted great but I must say it worked as strong as Gatorade with laxative pills before a colonostrophy that same day… LOL

  86. Hi Peggy 👋
    I have already written questions under this video because this is a huge problem for me. Chronic, severe constipation! I started with the lemon water in the morning and I saw a marked difference. Then I went to lemon water and cucumber juice. Now I have just started on the lemon juice and celery juice yesterday (tiny amount to avoid major detox issues) and each day the efficiency of the lemon water is getting less and less. 😟 I have been taking magnesium glycinate at night as well as a second dose of cucumber juice. My question is now that I've started on the celery juice should my constipation get better? (I just started taking Spirulina again). This his become a real health problem. Will celery juice help with this?

  87. You have any treat for piles?

  88. Such a nice, simple video,thank you so much 🙏

  89. So i can eat carbs without gluten?
    Tuna ?
    Chicken and meat ?
    When do results come in?

  90. Ok I will start today and I will let you know if it works

  91. Yes, 4 September 2019

  92. Can I consume low fat yoghurt?

  93. My dear sister you live in the east and we live in the west

  94. If I am intermittent fasting, would I still have the full lemon? Or would partial lemon be ok. It wouldn't break the fast but still be healing

  95. Great info, thank you.

  96. Over consumption of caffeine gave me terrible terrible constipation and health issues. Coffee sucks! Especially if you have it with dairy / sugar.

  97. I buy your book but i think it’s not effective in case of candida or sibo? Is it ok to initiate with 1week plan and then turn to candida diet 😣??

  98. I can't hear it. Could you write it down for me?

  99. Those topics is good for me tks

  100. Hi Peggy. Do you peel and/or de-seed the cucumbers before juicing?
