What Your Doctor Doesn't Know
By: Dr. Edward F. Group III
I have decided to break the silence and reveal the truth about
constipation that most doctors don't want you to know!
You see, what's so dangerous about being constipated is that
itís not an injury like a broken bone or a cut or scrap.
Constipation comes on slowly. You don't notice it at first, or
maybe you just brush off not going to the bathroom thinking it's
nothing, and then it slowly builds and builds. You start feeling
heavy, sick and bloated. You become more irritable. You start
taking pills or laxatives to get through the day, or you call in
sick to work.
If you were to go to your family or company doctor complaining
about fatigue, weight gain, Hemorrhoids, gas, body odor, skin
problems, headaches, indigestion, depression, even abdominal
pains, you'll probably hear something along the lines ofÖ"You
are probably constipated. Here are some laxatives. Come back if
that doesn't take care of it."
The Constipation Alarm
This is a blaring alarm that your doctor may not be the person
to talk to. You see, most doctors do great with general
medicine. If you have broken bones, or need emergency care,
medical science can do wonders! But when it comes to a condition
like a clogged bowel, many doctors just donít have the training
or experience to properly treat the true cause of your problem
and get you relieved for good.
The main problem with the kind of treatments many doctors give
for conditions like constipation or colon cleansing is that they
never go after the root of the problem, but focus on the
symptoms, in your case; abdominal pain, not going to the
bathroom in 2-4 days and other irritating symptoms. And when
these treatments wear off (which they do), you'll often find
they only cover up the real problem for a short time and did
nothing to fix what's causing your constipation in the first
The Effects of Constipation
Constipation has been implicated in the cause of numerous
diseases and disorders including:
Appendicitis (One of the most common abdominal emergencies here
in the U.S. It has been estimated that more than 300,000
appendices are removed each year in this country),
Diverticulitis/Diverticulosis, Hemorrhoids, Benign Tumors, IBS
(including Spastic Colon), Ulcerative Colitis, and Crohn's
And that's not all...
Perhaps this doesn't surprise you. But take a look at the
following categories of diseases and disorders that can also be
related either directly or indirectly to the colon: Heart
Disease, High Blood Pressure, Stroke, Varicose Veins, Deep Vein
Thrombosis, Pulmonary Embolism, Diabetes, Gall Stones, Kidney
Stones, Obesity, Gout, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis,
Psoriasis, ó Especially Diabetes Mellitus, type IIó"adult onset
diabetes"; It has been estimated that 3-10% of the population
eventually develop known diabetes and that a much greater
proportion have the disease undetected.
If you're suffering from constipation, and you don't want to get
worse, then there is hope for you to get rid of your impacted
bowel once and for all! There are many ways to clean a bowel and
keep it moving effectively. We use a natural oxygen based
cleanser called Oxy-Powder in conjunction with exercise, water
and live foods and fiber.
