constipation and evidence based modern science

90% of the population of this world passes stool in the morning.

90% of the population of this earth does not drink water during night.

So effectively 90% of the population of this earth passes stool after 10 to 12 hours of dehydration.

Can we really say that for passing healthy stool, one should dehydrate for minimum 10 to 12 hours.

And most important is – what is the basis of collecting the evidence by modern medicine system called allopathy.

Why this piece of evidence is not considered.

For every doctor recommends drinking more fluids specially in the morning to help a person pass stool.

I treated my father of sepsis caused due to lung failure by hydration / dehydration cycles meant to correct fluid imbalance in the body.

 

That was based on my own treatment of sinus and common cold and cough with hydration / dehydration cycles meant to correct fluid imbalance in the body.

 

To relieve cold and cough doctors do advise people to drink lot of fluids. So they must have seen some people getting relief from drinking water to relieve cold and cough.

 

Yes that is true fluid imbalance causes every disease in the body. If a person from chronic dehydration, that can become cause of cold and cough and acidity.

Have doctors ever advised you to increase your water intake to get rid of mouth ulcers. I was advised by doctors to increase my water intake. Everybody that I walk to says that they never heard that mouth ulcers can be cured by restricting water intake. And everybody could cure mouth ulcers by restricting water intake for 12 to 18 hours. For permanent relief they had to reduce their daily water and other fluids intake.

Treated my father and lot of other people suffering from chronic constipation by hydration / dehydration cycles. These hydration / dehydration cycles correct the fluid imbalance which is the main trouble maker.

 

Connection between Bed Wetting and Acidity

 

There are no links that I could find. But I could cure bed wetting of my children by increasing their water intake. Another child was cured of bed wetting by adding a pinch of salt in water and helping the child reduce the water intake. So it was all about fluid imbalance, hydration / dehydration cycles helped restore the fluid imbalance of the body.

 

And there are theories that acidic food and citric food causes increase in bed wetting. That is an indication that acidity however mild may be the cause of bed wetting.

Facts

  • Healthy people empty bowels after 10 to 12 hours of dehydration.
  • Tea is first choice to people to beat constipation. Tea is dehydrating.
  • Lemon water is second choice. Lemon is dehydrating.
  • Walking for few minutes in the morning is another choice, Walking is dehydrating.
  • The chances of constipation are very high among Old people. Old people drink more water. They move less. That means old people over hydrate and dehydrate much less due to reduced physical movements.
  • The chances of constipation are much higher among pregnant women. Pregnant women move less. They over hydrate themselves. Fruit juices are common among them.

Hydration and Dehydration are both very important aspects for maintaining very good health.

 

If a person is drinking less than 1 litres of water and is constipated, he should increase his water intake to 2 to 3 litres a day.

 

If a person is drinking more than 3 litres of water for last 2 months and is constipated, than he should restrict his water intake to less than 1.5 litres a day. And preferably less than 500 ml for at least 3-4 days.

My review of the above blogs is as under:

 

http://fixyourdigestion.com/chronic-constipation/

 

There is really nothing. Constipation Cause is Life Style. What about Life Style. There is nothing scientific about this blog.

 

http://www.bodyenlightenment.me/blog/tag/constipation/

 

There is really nothing.

 

http://www.constipationexperts.co.uk/blog.html

 

There is nothing new. Diet and exercise.

Again nothing new. Exercise, avoid over using lexatives, fiber, water, too much calcium, iron, too much meat. You can avoid this blog as well.

Nothing new. Pick and chose from the entire world from exercise to yoga, water to lexatives, stress, vitamin C. Nothing new here as well. It one place it recommends carbohydrates and after 2-3 points it says avoid sugar.

 

http://ipwso.blogspot.in/2015/06/constipation-in-pws.html

 

It talks about walk, acupressure, liquid diet for a day after heavy eating, probiotics, peppermint tea, laxative. Same path. Different flavor.

 

http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2016/02/08/simple-remedies-for-constipation/?_r=0

 

This talks about water, fiber and lexatives and failures to cure constipation. To my mind this is of no use to anybody who really wants to understand why and how.

 

http://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/probiotics-may-ease-constipation-201408217377

 

This talks about probiotics. It is inconclusive. It says that probiotics are useful in diarrhea but in constipation they may not be as effective. Again biased medical evidence which have never lived upto its claims for more than 10 years.

 

But is contradicts the claims that laxative and stool softeners are any useful.

 

 

Dare to think different.

There is abdominal cavity. We drink water from top of the abdominal cavity. The water settles to lower part of abdominal cavity. So whatever water we drink helps to generate the wave like sensations when we move. At the same time, water in lower abdominal cavity helps in slowing down the movement of food down the small and large intestines. When we dehydrate the pressure on the digestion track reduces and the food starts moving faster through the small and large intestines.

So hydration as well as dehydration both have got a role to play in constipation.

Some facts

90% of the people on this planet go to toilet after 10 to 12 hours of dehydration (during sleep).

Old persons tend to move less and hence do not dehydrate properly and hence suffer from constipation.

Pregnant Women do not move enough and drink more juices and other nutrients and hence suffer from constipation due to over hydration.

Most of the people who suffer from constipation dehydrate by drinking tea, or lemon water etc.

Constipation and Dehydration

Constipation and Dehydration

Constipation and Dehydration

Constipation is single cause that could be contributing to all ailments in the world. And there is no cure or conclusive study of constipation.

 

I am a perfectionist.

 

I suffered from severe constipation for a long time. I suffered from other stomach related issues as well for a long time.

 

I tried various water drinking solution. I got 80 to 90 relief from various water drinking routines.

 

But I am not satisfied. My pursuit of cure of constipation is still not over.

 

Currently I have decided to try the following routine to eliminate constipation completely and to reverse all the damage that it can do or has done in my body.

 

Day 1 – I am drinking 8 to 12 glasses of water with one hour gap. This will clear the blood of imbalances of minerals, vitamins and other chemicals.

Day 2 to 15 – I am drinking 300 ml water with occasional drinking of 200 ml tea on 4-5 days. I am trying to restrict my liquid intake to 500 ml in 24 hours on all days. Even if the temperature runs at 40 degree C. Once the body has been cleaned of all the imbalances of minerals and chemicals, it does not mean lots of fluids. After managing the blood the next job is to clean up the stored imbalances of the body. The stores of excesses lying in the tissues, liver and elsewhere needs to be cleaned. That will happen only if you drink less water. That will draw the reserves or stored things to the blood for getting removed from the body on day 16. Drinking more water on Day 2 to 15 can do irreversible damage to the body.

 

Immediately on waking up in the morning – I would walk for 2-3 minutes. Followed with a sitting rest for 5 minutes. Any walk which is brisk or for longer duration will tighten the muscles causing stoppage of the gastric movements. When muscles get tired or experience pain they tighten up. So resting and relaxation is the key to complete gastric emptying.

Walk for another 5 minutes and then rest in bed for 15 to 30 minutes.

Repeat the above walk and rest routine till I get a strong motion movement.

 

I take my weight before and after motion. There should be difference of 300 or more after motion.One needs to the maximum difference in weight before and after bowel movement. When the difference in weight before and after start falling, that will be the time for increasing the water intake (8 to 12 glasses of water a day).

 

One should expect weight loss of 5 t 10 kg in a month with the above.

 

The purpose and theory behind the above routine –

 

  • When I started my water routine about 12 years back, At this time I used to drink 250 ml water every hour during the day averaging about 10 to 12 glasses of water per day. I found that I got immediate and complete relief from constipation, head aches and gas in 2-3 days.
  • When I continued with drinking the above amount of water, I suffered from constipation after few days.
  • I concluded that constipation is caused due to extreme acidity. When I started I was suffering from severe acidity.
  • But later I suffered from constipation again while drinking enough water. I tried using the loss of minerals theory and supplemented minerals by taking 10 to 20 grams of salt every day in water. But that also did not work on long term basis.
  • I observed that I do not lose more than 100 gram weight after motion.
  • The motions are soft and semi solid. And I used to get head aches once in 10-15 days.
  • I found that dehydration has lots of health benefits.
  • I observed that tea is dehydrating but most of the people around world uses tea to relief themselves of constipation.
  • I realised that during sleep most of the people do not drink any liquids and still they get motion in the morning. That means dehydration is pre-requisite for healthy motion.
  • That people use honey, lemon, warm water etc to relief of constipation. All off these are dehydrating.
  • Yoga, breathing exercises, sports, walking running etc all are dehydrating and help in getting relief from constipation.

 

The targets of the above water routine are –

  • Weight Loss
  • Easy and full motion
  • Cholesterol reduction
  • Better kidney health
  • Improvement in stamina
  • Saving of time that people spend on walking away from house
  • To get plenty sleep and rest.
  • To reverse the aging process.

 

Watch this space regularly to get the results of tests I am doing on myself.

 

And please you do not start this on yourself.

 

I have practiced dehydration over last 10 years or so. But any one new should not attempt this. If some one out there wants to try, do not dehydrate yourself for more than 2 days in the beginning.

 

Constipation Causes

Constipation Causes

 

The following link lists the following possible constipation Causes –

http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20452199,00.html

constipation causes

  • Low fiber diet
  • Repeatedly ignoring the urge to go
  • Not drinking enough water
  • A lack of exercise
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Painkillers
  • Chocolates
  • Vitamins and supplements
  • Laxatives overuse
  • Too much dairy products
  • Antidepressants
  • Depression
  • Antacids
  • Blood Pressure and Allergy Medicines
  • Inflammatory bowel Disease
  • Childbirth
  • Diabetics and neurological conditions.

 

The web site offers no explanation why the above things cause constipation. There has been lot of time lost when Allopathy started claiming that it is the only branch of medicine which is scientific. Lot of money has been wasted on research in Allopathy. The end result is – Big huge lies.

 

Let me try to offer some explanation.

  • Low fiber diet – Those who increase their fibre intake also suffer from constipation. In last 50 years enough trials have been done with increasing Fibre intake. Increasing the fibre intake beyond a point causes repairable damage to the intestines and gut. Read more about Too much fibre at – http://www.fitday.com/fitness-articles/nutrition/healthy-eating/6-health-risks-of-eating-too-much-fiber.html. So why fibre is included here as a cause when it is supposed to cause constipation and could cause such serious damages. Writing health blogs is a business just like any other business. Wow. What a great business.
  • Repeatedly ignoring the urge to go – Anything (nutrient or fibre or just about anything) that is not absorbed by cells causes inflammation. And this must be removed from the body at the earliest. Suppressing the urge to go, may cause chronic inflammation.
  • Not drinking enough water – Drinking too much water also causes constipation. I can vouch for that. I know 100s of people who drink lot of water and suffer from constipation. Too much water causes loss of minerals and vitamins from the body. It also causes loss of lot of sugar and sodium from the body causing constipation. http://www.livestrong.com/article/506928-can-suddenly-drinking-a-lot-of-water-give-me-constipation/, https://www.gutsense.org/constipation/main.html, Too much water can kill you. If that is not enough keep googling. Have a look at this one also – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2954820/Are-aquaholic-Doctors-advising-drink-water-fact-drinking-worse.html
  • A lack of exercise – http://www.active.com/health/articles/why-too-much-running-is-bad-for-your-health – Too much exercise is too bad for anybody. In fact anything more than walking few kilometers a day is harmful in the long run.
  • Hypothyroidism – Lack of enough energy in the organs of the body. But too much energy like excess consumption of sugar and alcohol causes constipation.
  • Painkillers – Pain killers interfere with histamine hormones and water management of the body.
  • Chocolates – too much confusion here. The link says that some study says that it relieves constipation.
  • Vitamins and supplements – Lot of B vitamins are supposed to be the best thing to get rid of constipation. Again too much confusion.
  • Laxatives overuse – But you have heard that laxatives relieve of constipation. This is a case of excess.
  • Too much dairy products – Mahatma Gandhi was advised to drink milk against his wishes to relieve himself of excessive constipation. It is reported that he was seriously ill and was told that only dairy can help him. Confusion.
  • Antidepressants – It concerns neurological condition. It has been dealth at the end.
  • Depression – Depression is neurological condition. It has been dealth at the end.
  • Antacids – Antacids are not body friendly. So these cause chronic inflammation. These merely provide temporary protection to stomach lining when the lining has been damaged due to over use of pain killers.
  • Blood Pressure and Allergy Medicines – There is nothing like allergy. This is created by allopathy and other medicine systems. Everything in excess causes inflammation and allergy. Allergy is nothing but inflammation out of control. My web site – healthyindianow.in says so.
  • Inflammatory bowel Disease
  • Childbirth m- May be it is caused due to eating too much. Too much vitamins, fruits and juices. Everything in excess causes inflammation. My web site – healthyindianow.in says so.
  • Diabetics and neurological conditions – Lack of sugar and excess of sugar causes constipation. Diabetics and neurological conditions are caused due to sugar problems. My web site – healthyindianow.in says so.

 

Why there is too much confusion about each of these causes of constipation. Actually too much knowledge is dangerous (your doctors will tell you so, if you give them a print out of these. People won’t let you live a normal life. These doctors will always find something to blame you for your conditions. So you much pick up your blaming machine guns and start blaming the doctors.

So what is to be done. My God. Why are you asking me such silly things. Just read the home page of my web site
