Happy Mother's Day to ALL! And if you are wondering what to give your mom because you really don't know- a flower or postcard and a kiss can make her feel appretiated! : )
Spring time- and I am trying to get "in touch" with my bowels but it is not working!
Shelley, I started exercising a lot more, massaging my abdominal area with a tennis ball to get things moving literally...I'm drinking a lot of spice teas...actually is there any harm in drinking too much water as I drink about a gallon a day- half of it is warm water? I started doing the Greeting of the Sun morning practice- but I don;t do it regularly- maybe three times a week...
For the last two weeks and a half I've been taking Cascara Sagraba- initialy i started with the dosage it says on the bottle 1-2 capsules a day..it didn;t work at all..I might have done more damage to my colon now than before I started because I started taking 4 tablets twice a day! Along with that, I drank Udo's Choice oil blend two times a day, 4tbs.
I don't know why but I thought cascara is not as dependence-dangerous as senna...I am 165 pounds
and I know that sometimes it takes more than the dossage on the bottle. I am probably wrong about the dossage I should take because now I have NO bowel movements even when I drank 4 tablets yesterday morning and 6 tablets last night! I drink plenty of water, I haven't been exercising that much for the last week. (I usually had problems having bowel movements- naturally with me occur once every 4-6 days..)
I have not had a bowel movement since Wednesday! And that is with drinking the cascara every day..I am literally scared!
I don't feel hungry at all- probably because I already have too much in there anyway! But I have bee nstressed lately and I would eat even when I know I am not hungry..which wouldmake me eat Sugar
a lot more than usual! 2 meals per day usually...
Please give me some advice!!!!!!! I need to get things moving because i also have had a terrible headache almost every day for the last week..and I didn't want to drink Exedrin or any of these....
Thank YOU for the help!!!! I'm really sorry the whole explanation is soooo long..and I really appretiate your advice!
Thank you again!!! I really need to see some light for my body!
p.s. I was going to start the P&B shakes with the cascara but I kept putting it off so I never started them for more than a day...
