Hey folks,

Welcome to this edition of Whatever Wednesdays.  Today's topic can be a little uncomfortable for some, but it's a part of life and everyone does it or should be doing it on a regular basis for health.  I'm talking about bowel movements everyone..hence the title of the post..LOL! It just baffles me how many people have trouble going to the bathroom or go for days without having one.  So, I went online and gathered some information for you all out there about this topic and how important it is to be eliminating regularly. 

According to an article on ehow.com:
"When the digestive system is not working properly, most people experience fatigue, constipation, an inability to concentrate, and have difficulty sleeping. Weight gain and indigestion are also common when the bowels are not functioning properly.

According to HealingDaily.com, the typical American holds approximately eight meals of undigested food in her colon. This is because waste byproducts are not eliminated regularly through the bowels. One of the best ways to get rid of the waste buildup is to eat more fiber and undertake a bowel cleanse.

The best foods that cleanse the bowel include: fresh fruits with skins, yeast flakes, fresh vegetables, wheat products, sea vegetables, sprouted grains, spinach, broccoli, almonds, kale, beet greens, sesame seeds, watercress, legumes, acerola cherries, pysllium fiber and flax seeds. All of these foods must be eaten in their purest form and eaten on an empty stomach."

So, as you can see, it is of utmost importance that you are eating foods that promote digestion so you can be eliminating regularly.  To read the article in its entirety, click here.  Happy flushing..lol!
