Olive oil constipation: intake of extra virgin olive oil is an ancient yet proven relief to bowels movement irregularities. How can olive oil monitor effectively metabolism?
Healthy body takes care of itself. The body kicks back to signal a physical distress condition by the phenomenon of bowels movements difficulties. Constipation signifies a mistreatment of the body in general and of the metabolism system in particular
The accepted criteria for a chronic constipation condition are infrequent and irregular defecations, excessive trouble during bowels evacuation or the feeling after defecation that “something is still there”. Accompanied to that, one might have sleep problems, headaches and nervousness.
The most common causes for troubled bowels evacuation are irregular daily routines, deficient and unbalanced diet, not enough physical exercise or mental stress.
“Treatment with laxatives” is destructive in the long range, laxatives “treat” the symptom but not the real why. Eventually an addiction to the laxatives is incurred and the body will require an increasing dosage up to a point the laxatives are not effective any more.
