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 tbs senna tea leaves
– 1/2 tsp. mint leaves
Boil for one minute in a quart of water, 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.
