IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME
The research I have on the subject of POOPING is exponential but today’s focus is on IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME or IBS – a condition suffered by approximately 10-20% of the NORTH AMERICAN population – SO I KNOW I am not alone.
BOWELS & BUD? INFORMATION IS POWER & TOGETHER WE’RE EMPOWERED.
Let’s get at it.
- Digestive system requires cooperative communication between the Brain, Immune & muscle systems
- When the chain of communication is accurate, the messages to and fro are not confused – PERISTALSIS is not interrupted. The ingested substance is squished, all nutrients water and salts are extracted and the waste is eliminated in one dump!
- PERISTALSIS is a wave like contraction of muscles that move the ingested substances through the digestive track extracting fluids and nutrients.
IBS SUFFERERS DO NOT EXPERIENCE PROPER PERISTALSIS FUNCTIONING –
* HYPER FUNCTIONING: pushes the food through the colon too quickly not allowing for nutrient and fluid absorption – DIARRHEA
* LAZY FUNCTIONING: allows the digested mass to hang around too long in the colon drying it out too much making it difficult to pass – CONSTIPATION
* STRESSED Functioning: is the result of long term HYPER or LAZY functioning – it really doesn’t know what the brain is telling it to do anymore. So it’s hyper, it’s lazy – its normal – its dysfunctional.
IBS causes more work absenteeism than the common cold probably because it is UNPREDICTABLE and can range in debilitation from mild cramping to extreme uncontrollable pain that can last minutes, hours, days!
I KNOW! Before freeing myself from the PHARMACEUTICALS that were supposed to help me live – I only experienced a bowel movement ever 28 – 30 days or so – and though I came close a few times – AN EMERGENCY COLOSTOMY SURGERY NEVER BECAME MY FATE.
A commonly prescribed medication for a lazy bowel is SENEKOT. Senna – the active ingredient causes the muscles in the intestinal wall to contract more often and with increased force. * http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/medicines/digestive-health/a8132/senokot-senna/
As was the case, excessive & prolonged use of this drug creates a dependency. An ALREADY LAZY BOWEL found something else to do the work for it! THE MUSCLES that once invoked peristalsis slip into early retirement. Like ALL MUSCLES – USE EM OR LOSE EM
MARIJUANA IS A SUPERHERO
* The cannabinoid THC acts on both the CB1 receptors which CONTROLS the messages to and from the brain – INSTRUCTIONS
* And CB2 receptors which modulate immune function, inflammation and pain. * http://www.idmu.co.uk/cangitract.htm
I keep a pre-roll on standby @ ALL TIMES in the bathroom. I also keep a private pouch on my person – VAPE PEN. This IS A STRATEGY that has saved me from seeking assistance numerous times during a FLARE UP. I don’t think there is much worse than sitting on the throne begging a stranger to save you.
The ENTIRE PURPOSE of our digestive system is to transform the substances that we ingest into NEW TISSUE for our bodies – WOW! I’m thinking the substance that POWERS UP – STRENGTHENS & MAINTAINS the system responsible for keeping everything in check – IS THE GAME PLAN. HENCE, ingested marijuana to support the endocannabinoid system!
In my mind – as many others, it’s only logical to ingest the best I can, to get the most wellness benefits I can glean, in EVERYTHING I EAT — therefore Cannabis raw or decarboxylated as well as Hemp is added in practically every dish, smoothie or shake I make! I’ll share a few more recipes on FRIDAY but not before we WORK SHIT OUT on WEDNESDAY & CONSIDER A CLEANSE ON THURSDAY.
