How to poop like a toddler (and why you should)

I warn you I’m going to be graphic when needed. I’m not going to be “politically correct” with my words — I’m going to give it to you straight.

Starting with what may have led to your “uncomfortable” and embarrassing problem in the first place — and how to remedy it.

When you have the urge to go to the restroom, if you’re first thought is, “Where’s my phone?” because you know it’s going to be a while — then things are not working as they should.

Sit… poop… wipe… flush… and you’re done — all in 5 minutes tops… that’s how it should work.

When you’re doing it right… pooping is quick — clean — and painless.

But if that’s not your experience, you have a problem that needs addressing sooner than later.

A serious problem

Roughly 63 million people in the U.S. suffer from chronic constipation, resulting in four million doctor visits, over one million hospitalizations and over five million prescriptions written each year.

If you live with constipation, you already know the pain, bloating and straining that result when you’re unable to have a bowel movement.

But if you’re not going regularly — not only is your family frustrated that you take up too much time in the restroom — but you’re putting up with uncomfortable, embarrassing and annoying health problems like…

  • Smelly gas
  • Bloating
  • Stomach aches
  • And low energy

The longer you can’t go, the worse it gets. Long-term constipation can lead to…

  • Hemorrhoids
  • Anal bleeding
  • Fecal impaction
  • Intestinal bulging
  • Leaky gut
  • Irritable bowels

And estrogen dominance. The longer waste sits in your colon due to slow bowel transit, the higher your risks from the daily chemicals you’re exposed to. They are easily absorbed into the walls of your colon (instead of exiting your body) where they have an open door to the rest of your body.

Additionally, bowel problems are often inflammatory and can lead to heart problems.

So, let’s get straight to the point — because when you aren’t going #2, you have no time to waste.

Why are you constipated?

There are a whole host of problems that could be behind your chronic constipation.

These include:

  1. Lack of physical activity – When you don’t move, neither does your poop.
  2. Not drinking enough water – Without enough water in your colon, your poop becomes hard and extremely difficult to pass.
  3. A low-fiber diet – Your body needs fiber to sweep the poop out of your colon.
  4. Hormone problems – Diabetes, low thyroid and any other health problems that affect your hormones can leave you constipated and in pain.
  5. Weak pelvic muscles – If your muscles are weak, you may not have the strength you need to push the poop from your colon.
  6. Nerve problems – Neurological conditions like Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, stroke and more can block the signals to the nerves in your colon, leaving you unable to poop.
  7. Medications – The list of pain medicines that can cause constipation is as long as your arm and include painkillers, anti-depressants, prescriptions for high blood pressure, allergy medications, calcium supplements and many, many more.

And, these are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to things that can cause you to become constipated…

The problem with laxatives

Many people who suffer from chronic constipation turn to laxatives for relief.

But, these can cause more harm than good.

In fact, laxative use can give you everything from stomach pain to severe dehydration, electrolyte and mineral imbalances that can lead to other health problems.

But they can actually cause chronic constipation themselves. That’s because when you rely on laxatives to help you poop, you become dependent on them and then your body can no longer poop naturally.

So, the question now is what can you do to poop again and finally feel better?

You won’t hear eat more fiber or drink more water from me. Because when you can’t poop that’s the last thing you should do!

I’m going to give you the real answers about how to remedy your occasional constipation… discomfort… and other annoying bowel problems…

7 supplements that’ll help you poop like a toddler

The best way to overcome your chronic constipation and get back on the pot regularly is to provide safe, natural support for your colon.

And, there are 7 supplements that can do just that…

  1. Ancient aloe – This cactus-like plant helps to naturally stimulate the bowel and soften stool for easier elimination.
  2. Inulin – This natural prebiotic found in chicory root helps support the natural production of beneficial bacteria in the colon by providing the intestinal fertilizer needed for healthy gut flora. Inulin is also a natural appetite suppressant that fights fat and diabetes.
  3. Potassium – This critical mineral helps keep stool hydrated and moist promoting a healthy transit time from digestive tract to toilet.
  4. Cascara sagrada – Used by Native Americans for centuries to help promote bowel contractions and the urge to “go” for normal healthy bowel movements.
  5. Senna leaf – This natural colon-balancing herb helps promote normal bowel health and healthy stool consistency for regular, gentle bowel movements.
  6. Slippery Elm – This herb is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps regulate anal tissue swelling.
  7. Black Walnut hulls – This ancient remedy contains juglone, tannins and natural iodine – which work together to help eliminate harmful organisms from the digestive tract helping to support healthy digestion and regularity.

You can “GO” — without smears… streaks… or double wiping,  going through roll after roll of toilet paper (that stuff’s a valuable commodity, right now!)

But most of all, you’ll feel better. That’s what matters most.
