Coffee and olive oil

August 14, 2014
Our 87 year old Mother has regular daily bowel movements but quite suddenly was stopped up and developed a hemorrhoid. Although she is not a coffee drinker, after getting ideas from this site, we gave her one cup of strong coffee with about a tablespoon of half and half and approximately a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil. We were very thankful that in about 15 minutes she got blissful pain-free relief--even before applying olive oil around and inside the anus as she was going to do.

This may sound terrible, but it worked for me. It's just like the "ring stuck on our finger? Use a little soap!" Only this one, you use a bit of olive oil. Take a bout a cap Full of oil and lather your anus with it. If you can get Inside The better. It will just slide right out.

What really works without fail

June 02, 2014
Linseed-flax seed. Takes about a day to work through your system. But it works, guaranteed, no ifs or buts.

Take two to three teaspoons of flax-linseed put in a a cup. Add a third cup hot water. Let it soak awhile (five six minutes) and then swallow-if you want to chew them that's fine. By now they have swollen in the water forming a glutinous-jelly substance. And drink more than eight glasses of water. The more the better, but hey, don't try to drown yourself and don't worry you wont rust inside if you consume more water either.,)

Thereafter, if you have a coffee grinder take one teaspoon and pop it in the grinder, blitz it and pour it over cereal/yogurt or whatever. The goodness for those who do not know is on the inside of the linseed hard outer shell. For those who do not have a coffee grinder take a teaspoon linseed. Put it in a container/cup and pour hot water on and leave overnight (covered- you don't wand extra unknown bits and bobs in there).
In the morning you can eat it with your cereal or better straight from the cup. And Guys and gals, the secret is WATER. Drink it! Lots of it. You can take less or more seeds depending on your daily needs.

Enzymes, fiber, probiotics, ect

April 07, 2014
I do all of the below and it works amazingly. I suffered severe constipation and bad digestion issues because of having eating disorders for 13 years (my bowels had shut down).

- Drink diluted apple cider vinegar before meals to get saliva glands working properly to help digestion
- Take enzymes before meals
- Take probiotics - Drink fiber, like metamucil, with water before bed
- Rebounding (jumping on mini trampoline) for 5-10 mins can really get the bowels moving fast.
- Add in Hot and Cold Hydrotherapy, Skin Brushing and Detox Herbs for added benefits.
The most important things are the enzymes and fiber!
