Problem: Unable to properly process meat. This is often times a hereditary factor passed on from parents. My mother almost died from bowel impaction. History on my mother’s side shows diverticulitis is prevalent.
Solution: I use three over the counter products to solve this problem. Two products, Metamucil and wheat grass are mixed with banana, Greek yogurt, berries and fruit juice to create a smoothie each morning. By the way, I use a Vitamix blender. That blender is simply the best. The prune juice is consumed before going to bed, only on days I eat meat. I do have some pretty interesting dreams as a result of drinking the prune juice.
- Unfiltered prune juice prior to going to bed (1/4 to 1/2 glass).
- Metamucil, orange flavor, mixed in a smoothie (1 tsp to 1 tbsp).
- Wheat grass mixed as part of a smoothie. This will cause gas so use small amounts (1/2 tsp) when you begin using this ingredient. This product is not all that easy to find. I use Amazing Grass Organic Wheat Grass Powder contains 100% organic, whole leaf wheat grass”. I purchase mine from GNC. This product is readily available using the Internet.
