Hi, I’m Lauren Roy from Sugar Hollow Farm
in Phillipston, Mass. By the age of fifty, most people should go and have a colonoscopy
done to get a base line. It’s good for your health. But I’m going to show you some things
that you can use to naturally cure constipation, which is a lack of fluid in your body that
makes your stools really hard. And hard to pass. The first thing you need to do is make
sure you always drink plenty of water, but if you do find that you’re constipated, you
can add some things to your diet to make your life a little easier. One thing is ground
flax, flax comes from a plant and it looks like this when it’s growing and it has a little
flower and in the flower pod, are seeds. And that’s where we get our flax seeds. These
are taken and ground, you can add them daily to your diet and that helps keep your colon
nice and clean and things don’t get built up. You can take the flax and add it to yogurt,
you can add it to your oatmeal, you can bake with it, or if you’re constipated you can
take a spoonful, it doesn’t really swirl – it doesn’t mix up that great but mix it
up, and drink it down, and that will help get things moving. Then follow that up with
a change in your diet including more fiber, green leafy vegetables and tons of water.
