MS and Constipation

Constipation is a common symptom associated with MS.  Myself and many of my students suffered with constipation for years before we were diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

The saying that all disease begins in the gut is so true, and constipation is a warning sign that we must pay attention to and correct as soon as possible to avoid chronic disease in the future.

The biggest cause of constipation is the presence of chronic silent infections in the digestive tract. And the biggest cause of these chronic silent infections is the overuse of antibiotics. Other factors that promote these infections to become more populated in our body include eating a lot of processed carbohydrates, taking certain medications, lack of sleep, and high stress.

When our microbes are in balance, the muscles that line the intestinal tract contract and relax to move the stool along. But in the case of dysbiosis, when our microbes are out of balance, the undesirable microbes cause inflammation and produce toxins, which can cause these muscles to become temporarily paralyzed – resulting in constipation.

If constipation is not addressed, the inflammation in the intestinal tract will continue to increase, the bad microbes will grow more rapidly, and we will absorb more toxins which will make us feel weak, depressed, anxious, and cause us to have a foggy head, poor memory and many other symptoms. Constipation is dangerous because it blocks one of our major detox pathways.

To naturally recover from multiple sclerosis, we must treat the cause, which is infection. Just one of the many steps we implement before treating infection is to relieve constipation. It is very important to have at least one bowel movement per day before treating infections.

I created a video to share why constipation is so common with those who suffer with MS, and the best ways to correct it. Please share this with anyone in your life who could benefit from this information!
