Why is a bowel movement so important?
Not only is a bowel movement important but it’s super important to have a complete bowel movement every day, this is how we take out what the body doesn’t need; food waste, toxins, hormone by products, if this toxic waste is not removed it’s then reabsorbed back into your system, decaying in the body creating bacterial overgrows, causing leaky gut creating an inflammatory response which then goes on to effect other organs, particularly the weakest organ this could be in the way of acne, eczema, SIBO, IBS, joint pain, asthma and so much more. Inflammation drives so many chronic conditions in the body.
ALL DISEASE BEGINS IN THE GUT……. the wise words of Hippocrates.
