Constipation is often caused by E.Coli and Salmonella from dairy foods, or from killing “good” bowel bacteria with antibiotics (killing a few by zapping actually restores good flora). Eat foods that restore the body’s good bowel flora: vegetables, sterilized milk (the milk sugar is essential), lots of water.
There are a lot of remedies for constipation, but many people enjoy this tea:
1 Tablespoon senna tea leaves
1/2 tsp mint leaves.
1 quart water (4 cups)
Boil for 1 minute. Add a dash of Vitamin C and brown sugar to taste.
Sip through the day to avoid “belly-ache”. It can take years for the body’s flora to “right themselves” after an antibiotic session. Be patient.
