ahaha! I completely understand how you feel! I can't even begin to tell you how much time and straining I do when I am constipated. Yes. my constipation issues have been resolved by the use of Oxypowder .
No. I have never done the master cleanse. Don't you have to fast for that? That's what I always thought. I'm out, just because of the fasting.
I used to take laxatives & stool softeners to treat my constipation, (as requested by my doctor) but I found that it was only making my constipation worse. It would help, but never solve my problem. So I then tried Colonix first. It made me feel sick. Bad headaches and even worse cosntipation then I had before I started. So after three weeks of Colonix, I gave up, andthen tried Oxypowder .
I've always used four capsules as recommended by the Oxypowder company. But as the cleansing period goes on, I slowly increase the dosage amounts. Starting at four, ending at six. This works great for me. I also try to eat healthy while doing the cleanse. Salad bars have become my friend. Drinking mostly water and iced tea thorough out the day also helps.
I continue to do the oxypowder cleanse a couple times a year, just to prevent any buildup, not because I become constipated. But to be honest with you. Oxypowder was a HUGE help for my constiaption. But I also made a complete lifestyle change. I try to eat fruits in the morning. (fiber benefits) Eat healthy stuff like salads, chicken, veggies for lunch and dinner. I also make it a point to walk one mile everyday, at least 5 times a week. This helps
With all of those, I no longer am constipated. I am very proud to say that I have had at least one BM everyday this year.... really since about thanksgiving. If you have any questions, or more specific questions, I would be more then pleased to help out. Because I know how much constipation can control your life...
