What Can You Do To Maintain Healthy Cleansing Bowel Movements?
Our flagship product is Intestinal Cleanse 1. This is used in all our 10 Day and Total Body Cleansing Kits. Many people take it by itself as well. The herbs are combined to support movement when you need it, such as when doing periodic cleansing as part of your lifestyle routine, or when you are trying to change your diet and handle some health factors and need support while making the change, ... or even when you've overindulged in system-clogging foods and need a short term boost.
However, it can be beneficial to take a short break from time to time with any herbs you take, so your body doesn't get too used to them, so here are suggestions to help you with alternatives:
Our Cider Vinegar Bitters are especially effective at stimulating bowel activity.
You can try all our other 4 flavors if you would like the increase in enzymes and improved digestion, even without directly stimulating bowel movements: Original Digestive Bitters, Citrus Digestive Bitters, Maple Digestive Bitters, Healthy Liver.
You can also eat more fermented foods and drinks to help. Many people find that eating unsweetened yogurt, plain or adding their own fresh or frozen fruit, keeps their bowels moving.
Our human ancestors all over the globe made and ate fermented foods daily. Fermented vegetables commonly used then and now include sauerkraut, Korean kimchi, beet soup, pickles of all sorts (although now these may not really be fermented naturally, but just have vinegar added). Fermented dairy includes foods like yoghurt, kefir, sour cream, crème fraiche, and cheeses.
Miso is also a probiotic food that can gently enhance eliminative functions over time. It usually contains both fermented beans and a fermented rice called koji, or another fermented grain. We carry several flavors of traditionally-made Miso, some are made with organic chickpeas or aduki beans, and others made with organic soybeans and wild-harveted herbs! We love our South River Miso, and we have a little booklet of recipes for miso too.
We hope you find this helpful and can use the information to maintain more regular bowel movements. Keep in mind that diet and physical movement are major factors in maintaining normal bowel movements. If you can be regular with diet and a more active lifestyle alone, so much the better for your health! Ask for our info sheet "Recommendations for a Healthy Diet to Help Eliminate Constipation".
We do know there are circumstances, like medications and other long term conditions that may not respond to diet therapy. Also, some just need a strong short-term intestinal herbal product to cleanse periodically, or to help kick start a new diet and lifestyle. So we carry a variety of items, including our time-proven standards, Intestinal Cleanse 1 and 3.
