The discomfort of not being able to go to the bathroom is real. From the feeling of being full all the time, to the bad mood that it can cause and the consequences of that discomfort in everyone around you are real. Going to the bathroom is essential to maintain good health, to keep your skin shiny and to keep your hormones in balance.
And I know no one wants to spend endless moments sitting on the toilet waiting and bidding, trying to get something to come out, so I decided to select 4 recommendations that will help you go to the bathroom better.
I know that in the 90s fat became the fashionable enemy, but the reality is different. Your body needs fat to function well, for your cells to absorb nutrients, and for you to be able to go to the bathroom well. Add healthy fats to your meals like coconut oil, olive oil, ghee (clarified butter), Butter (preferably from grass fed cows), walnuts, nut butters or avocados for example. Don’t be shy and add oil to your smoothies, meals and even hot drinks in the morning. The fat will help lubricate the digestive tract so that everything comes out easily.
2. Replace coffee with a drink that supports the liver:
Teccino herbal tea is full of herbs that support the liver, therefore it will help you have a better digestion. Although coffee is reputed to help you go to the bathroom, it tends to reduce the assimilation of various nutrients. So an alternative is Teccino or the dandyblend.
3. Seeds of chia:
Although small, these seeds are a success. They are high in fiber and the slimy effect they form when soaked helps cleanse the intestine. Of course, keep in mind that since they trap water, it is important to soak them before eating them for at least 4 hours. You can make a pudding by adding two tablespoons of chia seeds to a cup of vegetable milk and a tablespoon of maple syrup, fruit and voilà, a delicious breakfast or dessert.
4. Take Water:
The ideal measurement for consuming water is half your weight in pounds in ounces of water. Your body needs to be hydrated to excrete waste. Consume water during the day and you will see how you go to the bathroom more easily.
