Molasses   11  1   

Posted by Cathy (Cambridge, Oh) on 08/28/2008

[YEA]  Blackstap Molasses cured my constipation problem! I am an avid reader of your site and have received a lot of good info from all who post to it.

I have had bowel problems my entire life. I have been to numerous doctors and have been told that I have the longest colon they have ever seen and it has many twists and turns. After fighting with the doctors about my elimination problem they operated just to see what they could see. Low and behold, they found a large section of my colon that was folded over......leading to another operation to remove 18 inches of my colon. I thought that would solve my problem, but due to years of taking ovc laxitives just to survive and for all the meds the doctors thought would cure me, I developed a lazy colon. Well, to make a long story short....I saw and read the articles on Blackstrap Molasses and purchased some four days ago. I took a tablespoon in the morning and again at night. This has been the best thing that could ever have happened to me. After two days...I am having regular, soft, bowel movements. I am thankful and amazed. I will pass this on to all my friends who also have that problem. I will continue to read as much as possible on your site because I found the answer to a lifetime problem through it that even doctors couldn't help. Thank You from the bottom of my heart.

[YEA]  My father is 87 and suffers from Parkinsons. He started having severe constipation problems as a result of intestinal muscles just not working. The doctors prescribed packets of chemical laxatives which marginally worked. He had to keep increasing these packets to a max of 7 packets. The expense was huge with many side-effects. On a follow up exam he asked if there was any alternative to help with the expense. The doctor recommended that he try black strap molasses. He incorporated 2 tablespoons a day and immediately was able to reduce the laxatives. Within 2 weeks and since he takes 0 laxatives and just the two tablespoons of Black Strap. He feels so much better and of course his mental state has improved greatly due to the relief that he nows has. He is not constipated at all and is just doing great. On that recommedation my elderly aunt, who has had constipation problems for years, tried the same remedy and had similar results. the doctor said he heard about this cure from his grandmother and figured it was worth a try.

[YEA]  I've been taking blackstrap molasses for a week now and thank goodness I've been getting 3 bowel movements a day!! I have a hard time getting bowel movements partially cause of the foods that I eat but I am working on it. Also, my father has the same issues. Also, my face is glowing and I've gotten a couple of comments and how good my skin looks! I hope it doesn't stop working for me.

[YEA]  Hi all, I was chatting with a lady at work who suggested BSM and ACV [apple cider vinegar]. For a year I have suffered with constipation, bad back and general tightness of muscles in the neck area. For 20 yrs i have had trouble with fibroids (had surgery but too multiple to remove all). On 26-5-07, I bought BSM and ACV. I took it right away, doses-2 large spoons of BSM in warm water, followed by 3 tablespoons of ACV in warm water. I done this morning b4 breakfast and last thing at night. The second day on it I had a very easy bowel movement and have done everyday since. My constipation is now a thing of the past. My back (which I had to get medication from the doctors for-didnt help) was cured during the week, along with the muscle ache. I sleep deeper and don't seem to eat as much. I totally know that this 'tonic' as I like to call it will clear my fibroids eventually. I also want to see after 3months how i do as I want to give it to my Auntie for her Arthritis. I thank you all for posting your experiences as this has given me constant strength and encouragement. I look forward to this journey and please if you are having or have had VICTORY over fibroids with 'The Tonic' then please post so I can read it. I am a big believer in foods for healing and this sure is a testament to God's produce.

[YEA]  I went to the health food store to ask about what I could give my 15 month-old son for constipation. They suggested 1-2 tsp. of blackstrap molasses in his bottle. I bought the bottle, came home, came to this website and discovered all different things this stuff is good for. I am 8 months pregnant. I was having a lot of trouble sleeping and developing symptoms of restless leg syndrome (common in pregnancy). I decided to give it a shot. Long story short, my son is pooping like a champ and I started sleeping through the night without any jerking limbs ON THE FIRST DAY! I ran out for one day, and I had a horrible night sleep. I am amazed and delighted

[NAY]   This definitely did not work for me. If you are sensitive to sugar, this may not be best. I took a tablespoon of molasses in the morning, and the rest of the day was ruined by extreme bloating and gas, rumbling sensation and pain.I should have known this would happen because even one tablespoon of honey and too much fruit results in the same for me. I love molasses (in food, mixed), but this is too intense for me, and it did not result in a bm.

Hi, I have chronic constipation and this is what I did and I am still doing it everyday. I take one spoon wheat grass powder soaked in water and with that I put a half teaspoon of salt. Also I mix little vinegar and almunium free baking soda. Sometimes I also put one spoon olive oil or coconut oil with that. I mix everything and drink in the warm water. I drink three to four glass of water with that in the morning everyday. The key ingrident here is salt, apple cider vinegar and baking soda. Take vinegar just little beat and mix baking soda with that. If you take vinegar it gives you constipation. You can also use lemon instead of vinegar. Also I drink my first urine in the morning that also helps in constipation. Sometimes for extra cleansing I also take neem powder. I try to change the thing what I take to see which one is working better. Hope it helps

[NAY]  Sooo for the past 10 months or so I have been constantly constipated. I had a couple months of regularity last spring but I don't recall doing anything then that I'm not doin now. I thought it was hormonal so I do chaste tree berry and BSM nothing. On the first day of my period I get some relief but before my period even ends I'm back to being constipated.

  • I've thought it was depression/stress and tried 5htp helped for a little bit nothing.
  • Tried high fiber lots of water I exercise everyday all the usual remedies obviously.
  • Tried magnesium and coconut oil.

My eyes look puffier when I'm constipated. I feel like during the 2 days where I had relief on my period not only was my stomach not poking out anymore but my eyes looked wider and brighter.

I'm really at a loss.

Hi Jb: Try to eat boiled whole wheat it cure any kind of constipation, no matter what the cause of it. You can add honey and raisin or any kind of spices u like it to make it taste better if u dont like it plain, and eat it as breakfast cereal.

Hi Jb, you should find out why you're constipated. If you've tried the usual remedies, such as drinking plenty of water, magnesium, oils, exercise... And they don't work, then constipation could be a demonstration of a more serious, internal problem. I think the best you can do for yourself is to find a good and thorough gastroenterologist and start from there. You'll get examined and if there are any findings then it's up to you if you decide for the conventional medicine or go the aternative way. Either way, I hope you'll find relief soon.

Hi JB, First of all, stop worrying. There is no big problem, by worrying you are becoming more constipated. If you have tried every thing and still no joy, so now you can start taking freshly grounded flax seed powder two table spoon full in a glass of water twice a day. This should give you a smooth bowel movement. Good Luck

Please try these cheasp remedies for constipation...

Magnesium upto 1000mg daily (pref bed time) since it will make you very relaxed.

Vitamin C (upto 5000mg daily) which is brilliant to reset the body and allow your bowels to move.

Prune juice 1/3 cup upto 2-3 daily.

Prunes

Spirulina and chlorella which clean out the toxicities in the liver and allow bowels to become regular.

Include veggies like cucumbers and celery to diet which help with retaining water to avoid dry stools.

Chia seeds

Aloe vera juice

(You will become regular in no time).

I went through several MRIs, colonoscopies and traditional meds, but the above intake along with daily exercise (1 hour brisk walk) eliminated the constipation completely. Please ask if you have any specific questions, since I am well versed with this topic.

[NAY]  I've been trying to detox from candida. I'm pretty sure it was candida but I'm not passing my bowels and it's affecting me emotionally and mentally. I've tried the salt, aloe, ACV, flax seeds, etc and still nothing without a suppository. I don't want to keep expelling because it's damaging to the intestinal lining. I'm eating yogurt to help with that. I'm getting scared though because I"m not passing my waste. Any help would be great. I'm on a mainly vegetable diet with no sugar, whites or grains and few proteins and a little fat. Still nothing. Suggestions are very welcome. Thanks.

[YEA]   Could be you are not getting sufficient protein. When I've been doing a fruit and veg cleanse for a few days and then eat an egg the result is almost immediate. You need protein and egg is the most easily available to the body and closest to human protein. Next best is liver lightly cooked but I am aware most Americans don't like the thought of eating innards.

Taking fibre for constipation only masks the problem. The problem is many people these days don't have enough good bacteria in the gut to digest food properly. You need to take a good probiotic and have a digestive enzyme with each meal. Fermented foods (like apple cider vinegar) also add back good bacteria into the gut.

Have you tried eating ripe papaya for your constipation? In the Philippines, that's what people eat as remedy to this problem.

Take vitamin C first thing in the morning, works a treat. A cup of tea of hot water, maybe with lemon works well too, or else fruit first thing in the morning, or a glass of warm water with molasses. See what works for you!

Another cause of constipation could be gluten causing inflammation that makes it hard for things to transit the small intestine and bowel. Try going gluten-free for a month and see if it helps. Nightshades like potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers, and eggplant can also cause intestinal inflammation. Look into food sensitivities in general. This can take will-power, as gluten foods can be addictive.

Gut problems can be a vicious cycle where various things go wrong and aggravate each other. So say you've got inflammation, b/c your intestinal lining is damaged so that foods like those mentioned above cause irritation. That can damage your ability to produce stomach acid and/or digestive enzymes, which can lead to malnourishment, and incomplete digestion which leaves food for bad microbes.

My approach would be: 1) Cut out foods that cause inflammation, and/or feed bad microbes and parasites & add nutrient dense foods; 2) Look into supporting your digestion with HCl tablets, digestive enzymes, and bile; 3) Eat fermented foods and/or take probiotics; 4) Cleanse parasites, candida, and other bad bugs with herbal treatments.

A damaged gut can take months or more to heal.

A good old, quart size, enema bag filled with plan warm water. Ask for a hot water bottle, no one knows what an enema bag is or what it's used for. I repeat until I get the results I want, could take 30-45 minutes. Check your weight before and after, to make sure you eliminate all the water. Massage your lower belly to get things moving, and try to hold as much water as you can before eliminating. You'll eliminate between 1-2 pounds or more of fecal matter.

[YEA]  5HTP, Omega3, Chlorophyll, ACV, Lemon and H2O everyday, Yoga 4 days a week. This combination has cured plenty; depression, regularity, appetite suppressant, etc. I'm just one happy camper

Oat Bran   2  0   

Posted by Anne (Dallas , Pa) on 01/23/2011

[YEA]  I have suffered from chronic constipation all of my life (47years), however my constipation was elevated to a whole new level of difficulty after a difficult child birth that required a surgical repair of my rectal wall - no pushing power. I tried everything: stool softeners, psyllium fiber, M---lax and a prescribtion medication for IBS. I eat a high fiber diet and stay hydrated But nothing worked. If you are reading this I don't have to tell you that this is really bad for the female self image. Constipation is not sexy!

This past summer I stumbled on what has been a "miracle" for me: oat bran. 100% oat bran is prepared as a hot cereal that I eat daily for breakfast (not to be confused w/ oat bran). It took a week or so, but for the most part I have been constipation free for the better part of 6 months. I have a normal BM almost daily and sometimes 2 times daily. Sometimes I might get a touch of constipation and to my amazement a single stool softener will now Do the trick, if I stick w/ my Oat bran regime. And best of all it is delicious w/ a little Spoon of sugar and some butter, Raisins and a few walnuts-yummy. I Love it! And it good for Controlling cholesterol as a bonus.

May be hard to find in a conventional grocery store, but most health food sections Of a store will have it. Some stores carry it in the loose bulk section. Any good health food store will have it. It's usually pretty cheap, but shop around if price is a consideration. Should be less than 3.50 for a small box that will last me at least 2 weeks.

I was able to rid myself of constipation. Now I will try the ACV for my Interrmitant abd pain. Good luck friends.
