According to the Medical News Today, constipation is a condition that plagues the digestive system and affects 15 – 20% of the United States population. This occurs because the colon has absorbed too much water from the food you’re eating, which makes it hard to go to the bathroom. Relief from this ailment can be challenging and sometimes even frustrating. There are a few over the counter remedies, but if the problem progresses it is best to see your doctor.
However, wouldn’t it be nice if you could treat your discomfort without using medication? We all worry about the safety of using medication for long periods of times, and this is often the case for those who suffer from chronic digestive disorders, such as gastric reflux, heartburn and constipation. The ironic thing is that some of the medications used to combat this ailment, can actually cause it to get worse. For example, laxatives are often prescribed for temporary relief, but if overused can cause the problem to become regular and more severe. Treating the root cause of the problem is important, but when you have to move towards taking medicine, why not take something natural? Something that has no side effects and helps work on the root of the problem?
Baltic hazelwood comes from Quebec, Canada and it is an unconventional and original way to alleviate digestive discomfort. It has been used for medicinal purposes by Indigenous people for hundreds of years, as it is rich in antioxidants, and can also be used as an anti-inflammatory.
One of the best things about hazelwood is its healing properties, which help to neutralize acid in the body. When worn close to the body, particularly the designated area (if applicable), it absorbs excess acid. The wood can be worn on necklaces and work best when kept wet. The decrease of acid in the body can help against constipation, as well as other ailments:
- Morning sickness
- Gastrointestinal problems
- And even helps with teething and diaper rash for babies
Having a healthy PH level is great for your health, as balancing the acid-base portion of your blood is important to normal daily function, healing, and digestion. A slight change in the acidity of your body can cause humongous damage to your digestive system.
It is important to take action as quickly as possible because if left untreated, acidic ailments forces the body to borrow minerals, such as calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium from our vital organs and bones to neutralize the acid on its own, in order to remove it safely from the body. However, using hazelwood greatly reduces the stress that your body faces, when trying to balance the acidity levels and can increase your energy levels, which can be diminished from the amount of work your body has to do to function.
Take the challenge with Baltic hazelwood and neutralize the levels of acidity within your body. Not only will you help your chronic constipation; you will reap the benefits of increased overall health and feel better.
