Constipation can occur for a variety of reasons, including when people change their diets, or if they add certain supplements such as iron or calcium.
One of my clients recently cut back on his coffee consumption and as a result, started to experience constipation.
Initially he tried several solutions: taking more epsom salt baths baths, eating more fruits and vegetables, drinking more water, getting colonics, and drinking more fresh pressed vegetable juice. However, none of these solved the problem long-term.
I advised him to try the following safe and effective natural treatment known as the Ivy Bridges Formula, as published in The Detox Book by Bruce Fife, N.D.
The recipe is as follows:
- 1/2 cup apple juice
- 2 Tbs. liquid chlorophyll
- 2 Tbs. aloe vera juice
- 1 heaping tsp. psyllium powder
- 2 cascara sagrada capsules
- 1 glass of water
Mix the apple juice, chlorophyll, aloe vera juice and psyllium powder together and drink immediately, as it thickens quickly. Follow with a full glass of water taken with 2 cascara sagrada capsules. This is best taken in the evening before bed so it has time to work during the night.
This drink is safe to take everyday for 30 days and or even longer if needed. Unlike commercial laxatives, it is safe and natural and is not habit-forming. It will actually strengthen and promote healing of the intestinal canal.
