Why am I constipated?
Like everything else related to your body, your constipation is a very individual thing. In general, you become constipated because your diet does not provide enough fiber since you are not eating enough fresh green, leafy vegetables and fruit; your diet consists of highly processed, sugary, fast foods; you are not drinking enough water (juice, coffee, teas and other liquids don’t count) to keep your colon well hydrated; you do not exercise enough; you are stressed; you are holding onto toxic, negative emotions (anger, resentment, etc.); you are taking a prescription drug that is causing your constipation; or any combination of these situations, just to name a few reasons. In a nutshell, there is something about your life and your lifestyle that has you “all blocked up.”
