Todays Video – Massage Technique for Relieving Constipation
Could it be that relief for constipation is as simple as proper body position? World class athletes spend the majority of their time perfecting their technique. Maybe we should do the same when it comes to taking care of our business.

Most people think of high protein in their diet as healthy. But did you know that a high protein/low fiber diet can cause diverticulitis?
As people age small pouches form in the lining of the intestines. When a pouch becomes infected, usually due to the effects of a high protein/low fiber diet, the condition is called diverticulitis.
The condition is painful and may be treated with antibiotics or extreme cases, surgery. Antibiotics may stop the infection but at the same time the drug changes the diversity and abundance of the normal microbiota.
As a result a person is very susceptible to irritable bowel syndrome with chronic pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea.
According to article from Science Daily “UCLA researchers have described a new form of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) that occurs after an acute bout of diverticulitis, a finding that may help lead to better management of symptoms and relief for patients.” Read More …

This same connection between irritable bowel and eczema is found in another skin condition called psoriasis.

Tobin and colleagues found the likelihood of IBS was significantly higher in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis (2.67 times), patients with allergic eczema (3.85 times), and patients with depression (2.56 times).” Read More …

“Leaky Gut” also know as intestinal permeability may be a very common cause of irritable bowel syndrome. It may be the underlying reason that diet alone does not heal the condition.
In this article the researchers studied certain strains of the human microbiota and how they stimulate certain hormones that trigger a stress response. When the barrier of the gut is compromised the good bacteria may pass into the bowel wall thereby stimulating a immune response that cascades into the stress response.
This response commonly leads to diarrhea and/or constipation in people who have a susceptibility to irritable bowel syndrome. Read Article Click Here
