Daily Exercise Can Cure Constipation
Unfortunately, there is no way to package it up.
Sadly, there’s no way to really sell it.
Regrettably, I can’t “give” it to you…
It’s already at your beckon call.
This miracle treatment is called exercise and most people aren’t getting enough.
Which is shocking, because you don’t really need all that much to make a big difference.
I was listening to the radio a while back, a dietitian was advising athletic types on how to eat. People, mostly women, were calling in and describing their DAILY routine. One lady proudly stated she swam for an hour in the morning, followed by an hour of weight lifting. Then in the evening she’d play tennis and go for a walk after dinner.
That’s great if that’s what she wants to do with her time. If she competes then that’s the only way to get ahead.
But for most women, this isn’t necessary. You don’t want to become the next Wimbledon star. You just want to stay healthy, slim and regular
Yes, Having Regular Bowel Movements Comes From Exercise
The colon is a muscle, and it gets a good workout along with the rest of your body during cardiovascular and weight training exercises.
As well, its health is linked to the health of your heart and lungs. Your heart and lungs supply “food” in the form of oxygen and blood to keep your colon strong, pumping stool through. If you’re not getting at least 20 minutes of exercise a day, you are definitely contributing to your constipation.
And unless you’re 80 years old or extremely ill, I wouldn’t count walking as exercise.
You need something more intense than just walking. You still need to walk and I’d encourage you to do 10 minutes of walking after each meal. Not only will this help with your bowels, but research shows this will help you control your sugar and insulin levels – keeping the belly fat off.
But you also need some more challenging exercise that makes you SWEAT. Depending on your age and health, this will mean something different.
Actually, it has more to do with your level of health than your age. There are plenty of 60, 70 and 80 year-olds who are stronger and capable of more vigorous exercise than some 20, 30 and 40 year olds. Just like my 65 year-old patient who rides his bike to my office… 148km (93 miles) one way trip!! He stays overnight at his daughter’s place and rides back the next day. It’s nothing for him since he’s used to 1200km (750 miles) bike races.
So your CURRENT level of health should be the benchmark for how intense your exercise routine can be. Your own body will tell you. If walking at high-speed is all you can handle, then that’s fine. Eventually you’ll be doing some of the more intense workouts I outline in the FREE bonus report that you’ll receive when you order 37 Constipation Relief Strategies for Women.
Also, the free bonus volume, “13 Ways To Simplify Your Life So You Are Not Always Backed Up,” shows how to get the benefits of a 60 minute workout in 20 minutes.
That’s what most women need. It’s easy to put aside 20 minutes each day. In fact, you’ll probably find you’ll do chores faster, require less sleep and live healthier as a result – so no time lost.
Here’s what’s covered in the bonus report…
- Stop Wasting Time and Money At the Gym: If going to the gym is a trial for you, find out how to get all the benefits and more without leaving your own neighbourhood. Save commuting time and do it all for free. (And you won’t have to invest in any fancy equipment that forces you to work out in a cluttered, moldy basement).
- Are You Cooking Your Organs? In Traditional Chinese Medicine they teach that long-drawn out cardio exercises, overheat your body and put undue strain on the organs. Find out how to get all the benefits of jogging, in 1/3 the time, without the negative side effects.
- Why Weightlifting Hasn’t Helped You Lose Weight: If you’ve been using machines or free weights you’re probably not thrilled with the results. You haven’t slimmed down as much as you want. Your constipation hasn’t gone away. You feel more stiff and sore than pumped and energized. Well, on page 2 of the bonus report, I’ll show how to get an intense muscle-building, fat-burning session without any weights. It’s so simple, yet so effective. And that’s just ONE of the topics covered in this free bonus report.

This short guide should help you de-constipate your life. Oftentimes you only need a few good ideas to get you started.
It’s amazing… simplifying your life so it doesn’t feel “backed up” will have a direct effect on how your bowels process food.
In the West we are so focused on productivity we tend to forget how to slow down and enjoy life. As a result, our bodies tend to have more problems, despite all the advances we enjoy in medicine and technology.
