As once being a person in the path of the runaway train that is Colitis and Crohn's, trust me, I know what it's like to have a struggle with healthy bowel movements....or going at all!
Before I was diagnosed there were YEARS where I struggled with constipation, not realizing it was in the disease process. Add some antibiotics and continued inflammation and WHAM! I had a powerstorm of out of control intestinal behavior.
But I've learned a few things over the years, and MUCH of what we are dealing with with intestinal upsets comes down to the fact that we are SO out of balance with the FUNCTIONS of the food we eat. Getting this balanced is HUGE in restoring health BEFORE there's a big problem.
There are definitely some key things to pay attention to if you're experiencing poor functional health in the form of constipated bowels.
