When you are constipated—not eliminating daily, or going daily but with hard, small stools—you are eliminating more weight-causing, disease-causing, symptom-causing, and addiction-causing acids than when you go daily with stools that are (some or all of them) too skinny, loose, mushy, or flakey.
Un-formed acids in your bowel mean un-eliminated acids from your body. Un-eliminated acids lead to weight gain, symptoms, disease, and addictions.
Every day, your bowel automatically “squeezes” (an action called peristalsis), in an attempt to eliminate the waste stored within. If all of the acids are formed into a stool they will be eliminated when your bowel squeezes, and your stools will look perfect. You will also be eliminating all of the acids that lead to weight gain, disease, symptoms, and addictions.
When you eliminate every day but your stools are skinny, mushy, flakey or loose, very little of the acids in your bowel are eliminated. In this state, the reason you go every day is because a lot of unformed acids in your bowel irritate it, like a laxative This irritation causes your bowel to squeeze more aggressively in an attempt to eliminate this irritation (these excess unformed acids). Your body also sends some water into your bowel to try to dilute these acids, again protecting you. But at the same time, most of these acids have been reabsorbed into your body, leading to weight gain, disease, symptoms, and addictions.
Finally, when you are constipated, there are fewer unformed acids, which means your bowel is not irritated or freaked out about them and therefore, your bowel does not squeeze so aggressively, But the stools are also not large enough to eliminate easily when your bowel squeezes.
Formed acids in your bowel do not get reabsorbed; only the unformed acids do. So if you are constipated, you are not helping to eliminate more acids by forcing yourself to go, or using a laxative to go, either.
Time and time again, I see clients who go through this “constipated” state, and when they do, they are losing weight!, having less headaches and other aches and pains!, craving less sugar!, seeing better blood test results!, have more energy!, and on and on and on……(and just the other day, as I was explaining to a client why daily, not well-formed stools contribute to infertility, she had an “ah ha moment” as she stated that her sister, who has two children and has not had infertility problems, is constipated—while she, struggling with infertility, has frequent, loosely formed stools!!)
If you previously had daily but not 100% well-formed stools with every elimination and you have hit this constipation stage too, rejoice. You are on your way! Perfect elimination is extremely difficult to attain, but this state is certainly a big step in the right direction (unless your constipation is caused by surgery, travel, medications, etc…)
For a more detailed description of this concept, review pages 152-156 of my book, “This Works, Crutches Don’t,” as well as the other references to constipation discussed in my book (which can easily be located using my new index, available for download from the front page (left hand column) of my website, www.ThisWorksCrutchesDont.com)
Finally, if you are experiencing constipation and are scared, uncomfortable, or concerned about this, see the “Scheduling” page of my website at www.ThisWorksCrutchesDont.com and schedule an appointment so I can help you attain success with this program.
