For our last post on colon health I want to bring attention to one of the least talked about, but maybe one of the most significant, causes of constipation… STRESS! I know you are thinking…yes, we have heard that if you are uptight, then your sphincter gets uptight, too! And while in theory this is what happens, I think its important to get a deeper understanding of the chemical and physiological changes that stress causes in the gut.
Below is an article written by Chris Kressor that will blow your mind on the specific changes in your body that happen when we are under chronic or acute stress. This is a must-read for anyone struggling with colon issues; but also for anyone who is serious about protecting their health. ENJOY!
