Constipation Solved With Probiotics
Constipation really needs the help of probiotics. Probiotics are essential for creating the type of fuel our gut loves. It’s called Short-Chain fatty acids. Our body uses this probiotic-fuel source to stimulate peristalsis. Peristalsis is the propulsive action our bowels use to push our food throughout the digestive tract. Now it’s important to find the right dosage of probiotics.
How Much Should I Take?
For some the standard dosage (what’s written on the bottle) will be all thats required to totally reactivate the gut.
But others will need to increase the amount by 2x or 3x to get the desired result. Of course, once the results are achieved, reduce the amount to the lowest dosage that works for you.
The amount also depends on how strong, or concentrated the probiotic is. The stronger the probiotic, the less we need. Probiotic strength typically falls between 10 and 100 billion CFUs. It’s best to experiment, and see what works well for your body. In general it’s recommended to start with the smaller amount and build up from there.
Constipation Needs ‘Soil-Based’ Probiotics
Soil-based probiotics are a class of bacteria that really work well within the human digestive tract. They help kill-off other harmful strains of bacteria that degrade the quality of our health.
Clinically they have even been shown to expedite the healing of Leaky-GutAfter the soil-based probiotics have done their work, switch to a probiotic that has more bifidobacteria.
Stress And Constipation Go Together
stress activates the sympathetic nervous system. This part of our nervous system prevents normal digestion, which includes pooping. We have found that using Adaptogens like Rhodiola and/or Eleuthero help the body to relax faster after being exposed to stress.
This relaxation is vital for normal elimination pooping to occur.Adaptogens themselves typically are not laxatives or stool softeners. Instead, as mentioned above, they help stabilize the body when under stress. In this way they can helps us and our constipation.
Electrolytes and Constipation
Electrolytes are minerals that conduct, or create electric signals. Our body uses, and produces various electric potentials to activate bodily movement. An example would be the activation of our gut. For example the electrolyte potassium is vital for our muscles to work.
A slight potassium deficiency is associated with constipation. Without electrolytes our muscles cannot work properly, they just cramp up. Our favorite electrolyte is Shilajit Resin. It is naturally high in bio-available minerals (electrolytes), and is made by the earth itself. Furthermore Shilajit offers a panacea of other healthy promoting benefits.

A little Note On Opioid Induced Constipation
There is a great Japanese herbal supplement called Tsumura Mashiningan. It can be used by anyone with constipation, but is especially great for constipation caused by opioid use.
It works by helping to keep more hydration within the gut. This means that our poop will remain softer for longer periods of time. Semisolid poop is what our body prefers, and Tsumura Mahiningan can help us in this area.
