Are you and your poo feeling stuck? Is constipation messing with your participation in life? Your poop (or lack of it) is a direct reflection of your health. Here are 5 ways to add in the movement you are trying to muster!

So if you’ve been feeling stuck, inflamed, and out of balance in your gut and body, add these 5 tips as they are so simple and they work!

To your best health ever,

Dr. Daryl

1. Increase Your Fiber Intake

Fiber is CRITICAL for a healthy gut. Yet, no one is really focused on it—only 5% of the population is putting the recommended 25-35 grams of fiber in their body. In fact, I believe that number should be upwards to 50 grams daily. That means 95% us are missing out on how their body naturally wants to lose weight, stay hydrated, balance blood sugar, prevent heart attacks and strokes—and have healthy poops!

Add more fiber-rich foods to strengthen your diet like broccoli, avocados, carrots, beets, Brussels sprouts, lentils, chickpeas, quinoa, and my favorite superfood, chia seeds.

2. Keep Your Gut Inflammation in Check

It’s all about keeping your inflammation in check by increasing your anti-inflammatory Omega-3 intake and decreasing your pro-inflammatory Omega-6s.

Omega-3 fats that HEAL = wild caught salmon (and other cold water fish like trout, herring, anchovies, and sardines), fish oil supplements, EVOO, and seeds: chia, flax, and hemp.

Omega-6 fats that KILL = soybean oil, safflower oil, corn oil (in more foods than you think!), cottonseed oil, grape seed oil, hydrogenated vegetable oils, and most processed and fast foods.

3. Think Green: Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is at the core of what I call a STRENGTH EATING diet, and will cleanse, detoxify, and strengthen your gut microbiome. Think all the green things: juices, smoothies, soups, salads, etc. Chlorophyll is high in minerals, especially magnesium, one of the biggest deficiencies in the western diet. This green machine neutralizes the acids and toxins in our gut, making you feel LESS inflamed, stuck, and constipated to MORE energetic, powerful, and free.

4. The Solution To Pollution Is Dilution

When your plant wilts, the first thing you do is water it, The same goes for your body. Constipation is the #1 sign of dehydration, and 42 million Americans are suffering with it. Aim to drink 3-4 ounces of filtered water daily, and better yet, make it ACID-KICKING by adding a slice of lemon or lime, or a scoop of my Alkamind Acid-Kicking Green Juice Powder. Yep, right now, go down a glass of water.

5. The #Internal Shower

A shower you can enjoy anywhere and everywhere—just like the 70 million people on TikTok who are strengthening their guts from my VIRAL Chia Shot trend!

Drink my Chia Seed Constipation Reliever Shot daily and cleanse with me: 6oz water, 2 TBS chia seeds, juice of 1 slice of lemon, and a pinch of Himalayan pink salt. Wait 5 minutes for the chia to thicken up to a gel-like substance, mix, then drink in an empty stomach, The easiest and most cost-effective way to a better BM!
